Man, the Independence Day franchise is dunzo. Any sequels being made without Will Smith are dunzo. Not only did Independence Day not beat the second weekend of Finding Dory, but it ended up below even the low end of its … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘ID42’ What Happened?

Finding Dory is tracking really well headed into the weekend. A lot of comparisons are being made to Toy Story 3, which made 100M+ in its first weekend. This is the widest Pixar release ever, and with some ticket price … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: Everyone Will Find ‘Dory’ and ‘Intelligence’
Pretty much everything this summer has disappointed except Captain America. Ninja Turtles opened under, Neighbors 2 disappointed, Alice flopped. So we have two sequels now, and a franchise tentpole. Warcraft has been getting terrible reviews, yet it has been lighting … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: Three New Releases Vie For #1

Tracking is absolutely off the charts for the threequel, with many industry projections putting … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: A Great Big ‘Civil War’ Is Upon Us
So, Zootopia is definitely going to pass Batman V Superman. So much for the new DC Universe when a Disney toon can sneak up from behind and pass it. Speaking of Disney, they’re also having a banner session with The … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Jungle’ To Win Third Time
Three new releases are opening this weekend, and one of them is tracking very VERY well. Disney’s The Jungle Book has been doing really well in early tracking, suggesting it should outpace Cinderella this weekend. Cinderella opened to 67M, and … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: Mowgli and Ice Cube to Rule The Weekend
This summer, you’ve got it relatively easy. Captain America 2. Spider-Man 2. Transformers 4. Apes 2. Dragon 2. And a lot of original flicks. You’re able to space out your movie watching. If you don’t want to go every week, … Continue reading Why 2015 Is An Insane Year For Movies
