Hotel Transylvania 2 was the big draw this weekend, for sure. It actually passed the original Hotel Transylvania (which was the record holder for top September opening) and set a new record… 5 million more than the original. It’s also … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Hotel Transylvania 2’ Climbs ‘Everest’ To The Top
The Maze Runner sequel is opening just a year after the original did well with a 32M opening. Scorch Trials should expand on the goodwill of the first sequel, and with not a lot of competition in the marketplace, should … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Maze Runner’ Should Race Easily To 1st
The two big new releases this weekend both performed well, and proved to be a shot in the arm at the box office, which desperately needed it after last weekends pathetic results. Leading the pack is The Perfect Guy, starring … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Perfect’ ‘Visit’ A Shot Of Adrenaline For The Box Office
That’s right. I’m officially predicting that not even Transporter: Refueled can hit 10M this weekend, in what is likely to be the slowest weekend at the box office, despite being a holiday weekend. The movies are either old or weak, … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: Nothing Will Make 10M.
This weekend, two films traded places, as War Room dramatically exceeded expectations, and We Are Your Friends bombed almost on a record breaking level. It posted the third worst wide opening in history, besting only Delgo and The Oogieloves (there’s … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘War Room’ Surprises, ‘We Are Your Friends’ Is An Epic Bomb
If you were waiting to see a movie till the theatres were no longer crowded, this is your weekend. Typically one of the slowest weekends of the year, the final weekend in August features three newcomers, none of which will … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Compton’ Should Win A Third Time Around
Straight Outta Compton remained straight at the top, as all three new contenders were huge disappointments. Compton dropped 55% in week two, a bit harsher than predicted, but still managed to break past the 100M mark. It wasn’t the only … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Compton’ Wins, Newcomers Don’t Even Fight
The big news of the weekend is how well Straight Outta Compton did, beating everyone expectations. It even opened above 8 Mile. It’s the 6th highest opener for August, beating some heavy hitters like Rise Of The Planet Of The … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Straight’ To #1, ‘The Man From’ Disappointment
Straight Outta Compton has hit a big chord with audiences, opening to 24.3M on Friday (including Thursday previews), making it the fourth highest opening day ever for an August release, beating much bigger films like GI Joe: The Rise Of … Continue reading Friday Box Office: ‘Compton’ Strikes A Chord
Rumor has it, Straight Outta Compton’s presales are phenomenal. Deadline reported that Fandango is claiming 70% of this weekends advance ticket sales are for the NWA biopic. Universal is projecting a mid-20’s opening, but could it go higher? And if … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘The Man From’ ‘Compton’?
Four new releases couldn’t strike gold this weekend, as Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation ended up in the top spot, defeating poorly reviewed Fantastic Four. Originally, Fantastic Four was tracking at 40M, but as more and more bad reviews trickled in … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: Ethan Hunt Defeats The ‘Fantastic Four’
It is entirely possible that Fantastic Four might not even debut in #1 this weekend. Bad word of mouth is causing Fantastic Four’s numbers to be hurt. Audiences have agreed with critics giving the film a C- cinemascore. That’s really … Continue reading Friday Box Office: Not A ‘Fantastic’ Weekend
After enduring bad press and weirdly bad advance word of mouth, Fantastic Four will try to pull an “against all odds” this weekend and open big. I don’t think it can open too big. We’ve seen this story before. The … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Fantastic’ Weekend Ahead?
Tom Cruise managed the 2nd largest Mission Impossible opening and the third largest of his career with Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, which showed the power of good reviews, grabbing an A- from Cinemascore and a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes. Not … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Mission’ Possible. Tom Cruise Opens Above Projections.
