Jurassic World seems to have defied all odds and opened as the 2nd largest domestic debut in history, and the largest worldwide opening weekend. That’s pretty amazing. It’s honestly only a few million shy from The Avengers, and some insiders … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Jurassic’ Roars Into Record Territory
Jurassic World launched on Friday with an estimated 83M, which includes 18.5M from Thursday night previews. That’s a pretty amazing start to what is already a successful run.

Insidious Chapter … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: Melissa McCarthy Grabs #1, ‘Chapter 3’ Ends Up In 3rd
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
Both Melissa McCarthy’s new comedy Spy and the Insidious sequel nabbed 1.5M in Thursday evening previews. That should put them neck and neck, but Friday early reporting is showing Spy headed for an 11-13M Friday, and a 34-37M opening weekend. … Continue reading Early Box Office: ‘Spy’ and ‘Insidious’ Both Nail 1.5M on Thursday
Glowing reviews for Spy, and the idea that this is the kind of star vehicle we’ve been waiting to give Melissa McCarthy, should propel Spy to a solid #1 victory this weekend. San Andreas will dip into the #2 spot. … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Spy’ Will Suck The Air Out Of The ‘Entourage’

Hot Pursuit and The-D Train both bombed this weekend. Hot Pursuit had been tracking at 20M on the low end, and ended up with 13.3M and a C+ cinemascore. Look for this to fade fast from theatres, especially as Pitch … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: Reese Loses The ‘Pursuit’ Of An Audience
There is no world in which the Avengers don’t rule their second weekend at the box office. Hot Pursuit won’t even come close to dethroning the Avengers, which will still likely drop at least 60% in week two. Hot Pursuit … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Avengers’ Lead The ‘Hot Pursuit’
