Basically on the first (or second, if I’m lazy) of every month, I take a look back three months at the films that have basically already made their lasting impact on the box office. These films have typically already fallen … Continue reading April Releases: How’d They Do?
So, reviews aren’t going to help either of our new releases. We can just throw that out the window. Baywatch has a 19% and Pirates has a 28%. People will not be going to the theatres this weekend because of … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: The ‘Baywatch’ Against ‘Pirates’ Battle
The fact that Alien Covenant came out of the gate really strong with its Thursday night preview but ended up with only 36M over the weekend should be concerning for all future sequels this summer. Yes, Alien Covenant opened in … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Alien’ Wins, But Kinda Unimpressively
After spending two weeks at the top of the box office, the Guardians Of The Galaxy are going to be defeated by an unlikely source. Aliens. It’s kinda poetic when you think about it. A group of space heroes finally … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Guardians’ To Be Defeated By ‘Alien’
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 does have some competition coming into its second weekend, but the two new films are poorly reviewed, which will hurt their prospects. Originally, I had thought King Arthur and Snatched would both open in … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: Will Poor Reviews Kill ‘King Arthur’ and Return ‘Snatched’?
Even though Guardians was projected to do 140-160M at the box office this weekend, the new estimate of 138M isn’t that far off. So, don’t call this a disappointment just yet. 2M off of the projected range is pretty spot … Continue reading Friday Box Office: ‘Guardians’ On Low End Of Expectations, Still Crushing Competition
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 opens on Friday, virtually unchecked. It will absorb almost every ticket sale this weekend, as its closest competition will struggle to make 10M in second place. The original opened to 94.3M, but had incredible … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: How High Can ‘Guardians’ Go?
This weekend, there are three new releases trying to overtake The Fate Of The Furious. Although, really only one has the potential. The Circle, starring Emma Watson and Tom Hanks is the only one getting enough of a screen count … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: Can Emma Watson Beat Vin Diesel?
The Fate Of The Furious has dropped 63% in week two, a bit harder than I predicted (given the total lack of competition) but it’s not out of character for the franchise. It will easily pass 200M, but with the … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Furious’ Slows Quickly, But New Releases Are No Match
Even though there are a lot of new releases this weekend, they all are projected to suck, and none of them are going to remotely challenge The Fate Of The Furious for 1st place. Hell, I’m not even sure they … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Furious’ To Go Unchecked
Starring: Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jason Statham, Charlize Theron, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Scott Eastwood, Kurt Russell, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky, Kristofer Hivju, Luke Evans, Helen Mirren

How many people will see The Fate Of The Furious this weekend? Well… a lot. This sequel doesn’t quite have the heat that Furious 7 had, which led to its 147M opening weekend. That was boosted by a nostalgia trip … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘The Fate’ Of Easter Weekend
30) The House I’m pretty much rooting for this one sight unseen, because I’m a fan of Will Ferrell, and an even bigger fan of Amy Poehler. Will Ferrell starts a casino in his basement after he and his wife … Continue reading The 30 Films I’m Looking Forward To In 2017
