PACIFIC RIM: CURRENT ROTTEN TOMATOES SCORE: 76% “This is Godzilla meets Transformers, with elements of the lesser Star Wars movies, all awash in thunderously loud, non-stop demolition.”- Claudia Puig, USA Today “Godzilla, eat your heart out.”- Soren Anderson, Seattle Times … Continue reading What The Critics Are Saying: Pacific Rim, Grown Ups 2, Fruitvale Station

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

1) Star Trek: Into Darkness- 70.5 weekend, 84.0 total These are interesting times when a 70.5 opening can be considered a disappointment for the Star Trek franchise. That’s because the film was overhyped, and projected initially to do 100M over four days. This is still a strong opening, and regardless of how you feel about the sequel, it’s on track to break 200M, easily. This next week adds some incredibly fierce competition that will knock it down a few pegs, and will set the tone for a more stable final prediction. Right now, I’m guessing somewhere around 240M, but I … Continue reading Weekend Box Office- May 17th-19th
