WEEKEND BOX OFFICE

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…
‘Halloween’ Box Office Easily Tops ‘Hunter Killer’ Lionsgate With the exception of Lionsgate, most major studios weren’t interested in releasing a movie on the weekend before Halloween, which is typically soft at the box office with would-be moviegoers attending Halloween parties or staying at home to watch the World Series. Alas, Lionsgate’s Hunter Killer starring…
‘Venom’ Takes Top Spot Ahead Of ‘A Star Is Born’ WARNER BROS/SONY This weekend not only saw the biggest October opening of all time, but it’s the biggest three-day weekend in October box office history, thanks to huge weekends from two movies, both of which exceeded expectations. With this being Columbus Day weekend, both movies…
‘Night School’ Box Office Narrowly Tops ‘Smallfoot’ Universal Pictures Rotten Tomatoes can certainly have a huge impact on a movie’s box office for certain kinds of films. A great RT score is critical for independent films that rely on reviews to provide much of their marketing (e.g., Eighth Grade). A great RT score can also…
Impossible – Fallout’ Takes Top Box Office Spot Paramount Tom Cruise is 56 years old, and 24 years after the first installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise, he jumped out of a plane from 25,000 feet 106 times in order to perfect a stunt. For another sequence in Mission: Impossible — Fallout he broke his…
