Minions is tracking strong. It’s already opened overseas, where it has grossed 124M already. Last weekend, Terminator Genisys did well internationally, but not well domestically. Minions seems to not be following that same model. A really aggressive marketing campaign has … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Minions’ About To Destroy Prehistoric Emotions
JurassicWorld managed to top the box office again for the fourth straight week. The dino-might pic (sorry) became the 4th highest grossing film of all time, surpassing 2008’s The Dark Knight. Its next target is The Avengers, which is 3rd … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: Jurassic Keeps #1, No ‘Magic’ This Weekend
Terminator Genisys is tanking. It will debut below every Terminator film except the first Terminator. A B+ cinemascore is suggesting it won’t have legs either. It won’t fall off the face of the earth, but audiences are kind of echoing … Continue reading Friday Box Office: ‘Inside Out’ and ‘Jurassic’ Defeat Disappointing Newcomers
Magic Mike XXL is going to beat Terminator Genisys. Some people say the tracking is close, but Magic Mike XXL is tracking in women… and there isn’t anything else targeting women right now (except perhaps Spy, which isn’t doing a … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Magic’ At The Box Office? Or Time For A ‘Genisys’?
I guess people weren’t that excited for Ted 2. The sequel pulled in only 33M this weekend, down about 20M from the original a few years ago. It lost to Jurassic World, which became the fifth film of all time … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Jurassic’ Wins Third Frame, ‘Ted 2’ Disappoints
It’s possible that Jurassic World will remain on top for a third straight weekend. Ted 2 isn’t quite getting great reviews. The first one opened to 54M. I think we’ll be just below that, but enough below to take second … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Ted 2’ Set To Take On Emotions and Dinosaurs
Jurassic World technically did win the weekend, but it didn’t beat the second weekend record set by The Avengers (yet, anyway), and it failed to get to 400M in 10 days. It was Inside Out that had Pixar’s second largest … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Jurassic’ Wins, But ‘Inside’ Gets Some Records Too
Sadly, Inside Out won’t get the #1 opening it deserves this weekend, because Jurassic World is a box office juggernaut of unexpected proportions. After slipping past The Avengers to be the #1 opening weekend of All Time, Jurassic World is … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Jurassic’ Will Stomp You ‘Inside Out’
Insidious Chapter 3 pulled out a win on Friday, but it won’t win the whole weekend. Melissa McCarthy’s Spy is a little under projections, but it’s not the kind of film that is typically frontloaded on a Friday. Insidious 3 … Continue reading Friday Box Office: ‘Insidious’ Pulls Ahead
This weekend, The Rock should have no problem claiming a first place victory against a set of 6 films that aim to gross between 10-20M this weekend. Most people will sign up for the disaster flick, which has gotten mixed … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘San Andreas’ Should Break Open A #1
Tomorrowland, despite mixed reviews, will win the weekend. It just won’t be a huge sweeping victory. Tomorrowland is targeting families with a PG rating, but many critics don’t think the film is quite the crowd pleaser it’s aiming to be. … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: The Future Of ‘Tomorrowland’ Is #1
Two movies entered the marketplace this weekend, both with good reviews, and both highly anticipated. Surprise surprise, the PG-13 sequel won the weekend… by a lot. Not that Mad Max: Fury Road disappointed. It actually debuted really well, especially for … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ A No Contest Victor
Mad Max is getting more screens, but Pitch Perfect 2 has a PG-13 rating. Mad Max: Fury Road has been getting an almost disturbing amount of good reviews. The film currently has a 99% on Rotten Tomatoes. And no, that’s … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: Will The Box Get ‘Pitch’ Slapped, Or Is It ‘Mad’?
