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.
Ant-Man barely edged Pixels this weekend for the top spot. A 56% drop (not too shabby) kept it in the lead. It broke 100M in its 10th day of release. Pixels was likely hurt by some truly devastating reviews. Audiences … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Ant-Man’ Scores Narrow Victory, ‘Paper’ Crumbles In 6th
Minions is another huge hit for Universal. Next weekend, they’re likely to keep the streak up with Trainwreck next weekend. They’ve already landed Fifty Shades Of Grey, Pitch Perfect 2, Furious 7, and Jurassic World this year. Now Minions, and … Continue reading Weekend Box Office: ‘Minions’ Is Way Ahead
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

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’?
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
