Today is Kristin Wiig’s birthday. I love Kristin Wiig. She’s an actress that will make me go see a film. More people should have given Ghostbusters a chance.

1) Elysium- 11.1M Friday, 30M Weekend, 30M Total Elysium took the box office by quiet storm on Friday, easily winning the day. However, Elysium has only received a B cinemascore, which is below both We’re The Millers and Percy Jackson. … Continue reading Weekend Box Office Projections: Elysium takes an early lead
Horror film The Conjuring has lived up to the buzz. It started off with 3.3M for Thursday late shows, which are counted in the impressive 16.3M Friday haul. The horror flick has actually managed to earn an A- cinemascore, rare … Continue reading ‘The Conjuring’ rockets to #1

Despicable Me 2 ended up making 34,3 million yesterday (including Tuesday late shows), to easily win the day. The film has received an A cinemascore from audiences so far, and will continue to steamroll over the 5 day weekend. The … Continue reading Updated Wednesday Numbers: ‘Lone Ranger’ fails even harder
Despicable Me 2 is tracking for an amazing 35M opening day today (including last night’s terrific midnight take), which is way beyond the 15M that Lone Ranger is tracking. Still, considering that industry projections for Lone Ranger were 40M, that … Continue reading Wednesday Box Office: Gru is destroying ‘Lone Ranger’
1) Despicable Me 2- 70M 3 Day Weekend, 100M 5 Day Total Tracking for this film is pretty high, and the grosses will be spread out over the 5 days. The first one opened to 56M. The sequel has the … Continue reading Box Office Projections: Lone Ranger can’t hit #1
1) Monsters University-15.2M Friday, 51M, Weekend, 175M Total That’s a small decline, about 45% from last week. Pretty excellent for the Disney toon, which has competition next week from Despicable Me 2 starting on Wednesday. 2) The Heat- 15.0M Friday, … Continue reading Weekend Box Office Projections: ‘Monsters’ leads ‘Heat’
1) Fast and Furious 6 After raking in 10.5 million yesterday, Fast 6 seems on track to easily win the weekend again, bringing in another 35 million. That’s still quite a drop from last week, and even slightly disappointing considering the lack of a fight that After Earth has put up. 2) Now You See Me Now You See Me raked in 10M from late Thursday shows and Friday. The film is dramatically overperforming, and is looking at a weekend gross of 27M, above the studio’s projection of 20M. Now You See Me also managed an A Cinemascore (somehow), which … Continue reading Friday Box Office: ‘After Earth’ flops in third
1) Fast and Furious 6- 45M weekend, 200M total The franchise has been getting pretty good buzz. With such a huge opening, it’s almost impossible to not drop at least in half, which would leave it with about 45M this weekend, probably edging out After Earth and getting to keep the crown for a second weekend. 2) After Earth- 40M weekend Will Smith is still a pretty huge draw in terms of box office. Last summer’s Men In Black 3 opened to 54M, Hancock did 62M, and I Am Legend did 77M. Granted, his box office has been slipping a … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: 5/31-6/2- ‘Earth’ battles for the top spot
