WEEKEND BOX OFFICE

‘Annabelle Comes Home’ Takes On ‘Toy Story 4’ Warner Bros. In what must be a first, the top ten movies at this week’s box office include three evil dolls, including the top two entries, battling out out for the top spot. That spot easily went to Toy Story 4, which may not be playing as…
‘Toy Story 4’ Underperforms, ‘Anna’ Flops Disney/Pixar Whenever I attend the movies these days, odds are that I’m going to see a Disney movie, not by choice, but because it’s what’s available more often than not. It also means watching trailers for other Disney movies, which will be a large percentage of the choices in…
‘Endgame’ Edges ‘Pikachu’; ‘The Hustle’ Falters WARNER BROS. Last summer, Avengers: Infinity War managed to hold the top spot at the box office for three weekends before Ryan Reynolds and Deadpool finally bested it. This summer, it looks like Ryan Reynolds and Detective Pikachu are going to fall just short of taking down Endgame in…
‘The Curse of La Llorona’ Takes The Top Spot Warner Bros. Overall box office receipts this weekend are sluggish this weekend, which is shaping up to be the worst in nearly 15 years (since Miss Congeniality 2 took the top spot in 2005). There’s a fairly good reason for that: Easter weekends typically do not…
Madea Wildly Overperforms While ‘Greta’ Is DOA Lionsgate It’s a close race at the box office the weekend before Marvel’s Captain Marvel comes in and blows up the box office. In fact, it’s much closer than anyone might have anticipated, as Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral made a run for first place, coming up…
‘Alita’ Takes First; ‘Happy Death Day 2U’ Stumbles 20th Century Fox Determining how well Alita: Battle Angel performed in its opening weekend is tricky. On the one hand, the film — produced and co-written by James Cameron and directed by Robert Rodriguez — easily topped the box office in its opening weekend, out-earning the second…
‘The Lego Movie 2’ Finishes Ahead Of ‘What Men Want’ Warner Brothers All the right conditions existed this weekend for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part to be a huge hit. Critics loved it (84 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), and so have audiences (A- Cinemascore). Moviegoers have been starved for a big new release…
‘Aquaman’ Is Huge, ‘Holmes And Watson’ Falters Warner Bros. Pictures Aquaman scored $51.5 million this weekend on top of its massive $67 million opening weekend and its huge grosses during the holiday week to bring its 10-day total to a whopping $188 million. By the end of today, it’s expected to cross $750 million worldwide,…
‘Aquaman’ Leads ‘Mary Poppins,’ ‘Bumblee’ Warner Bros. Pictures We have arrived at the most exciting ten-to-12 day period of the box-office year, where films can earn as much on any day of holiday break as they typically would earn on a Friday or Saturday night during the rest of the year. That is spectacular news…
‘Fantastic Beasts 2’ Opens With A Shrug; ‘Widows’ Fizzles Warner Bros. Overall, there was a lot of money earned at this weekend’s box office, which is typical for the weekend before Thanksgiving, but it’s unlikely that the studios behind any of this weekend’s new entries feel particularly thankful about their film’s performances. Fantastic Beasts and…
