Box Office Fire for Twilight: Eclipse

The failings of the summer box office are distant memories as The Twilight Saga: Eclipse continued to dominate theaters, taking in $28.6 million on Friday to bring its three-day total to $121 million. I typically make that amount in a day so it doesn’t blow me away, but apparently $121 million in three days is […]

How to Train Your Dragon Wins Box Office Friday

If anyone didn’t know DreamWork’s How to Train Your Dragon came out this weekend, you clearly haven’t watched television in the last two months. The unprecedented marketing blitz during the Olympics – including controversial product placement tied in with the sports broadcasts themselves – was rather overwhelming and, in my opinion, off-putting. It doesn’t help […]

Shutter Island Scares Up Big Box Office Weekend

Friday box office results are in, and it appears Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese are on their way to the best weekend box office opening of their collaborative outings, with $30+ million. The horror-thriller Shutter Island, their fourth movie together, opened to a higher-than-expected $14 million on Friday.

Friday Box Office: Monsters vs. John Cena

Monsters vs. Aliens, the easy pick for the weekend, took in $17 million on Friday, setting itself up fora $50-55 million box office weekend. Not too bad for a less-than-stellar-looking DreamWorks Animation film. The big surprise on Friday was The Haunting of Connecticut, the rather crappy horror rip-off starring Virginia Madsen. The haunted house movie […]

Box Office: Twilight Bites into a $33 Million Friday

The box office pundits can stop guessing, at least somewhat. After a $7 million Friday, analysts still weren’t sure what to make of Twilight as it moved into the weekend. How many of the film’s fans flocked to the midnight showings? Would they still show up in force over the rest of the weekend? With […]

Box Office: High School Musical 3 to Make $55 Million this Weekend

Walt Disney is going to be very happy this weekend as their unprecedented TV-to-theater movie franchise High School Musical 3 raked in $16.5 million in Friday box office tickets, all but guaranteeing a $50+ million weekend (so says Slash Film) for the harmless teen movie. UPDATE: Slash Film was a bit off… HSM3 made an […]

Friday Box Office: Did Batman Beat Mummy?

The Friday box office results for August 1, 2008 are in, and it’s going to be a close one for box office crown. We have two films vying for first place this weekend: The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, the unwanted sequel starring Brenden Fraser, and the very-much-wanted sequel and box office behemoth The […]

Friday Box Office Results: Wall-E and Wanted Are Big

The Friday box office estimates are in for the June 27-29 weekend, giving us a hint of what the final box office numbers will be. Many box office analysts expected both the family-friendly Wall-E and the R-rated action movie Wanted to do well, but the box office weekend is shaping up to a be a […]

Friday Box Office: Kung Fu Panda and Zohan Box Office Results

Yesterday, box office predictions had Kung Fu Panda expected to make in the low-to-mid fifties and You Don’t Mess With the Zohan making around $32 million. Those weekend box office predictions were way off. The Jack Black family film Kung Fu Panda, the first big animated movie of the year, earned $20.3 million on Friday […]

Speed Racer Flops at Box Office

Vindication is wonderful. Speed Racer, the awful-looking action-racing film from the Wachowski brothers, is the first flop of the summer season as it took in only $6.1 million according to Friday box office estimates. According to Box Office Prophets, the movie will take in approximately $20-$21 million over the weekend. No matter how you cut […]

Box Office: Iron Man Makes $32 Million on Friday

Iron Man, the Robert Downey, Jr.-starring action movie, made $32 million on Friday, May 2nd to conquer the weekend, according to Box Office Mojo. Since it’s 8pm opening on Thursday, the movie has made $38 million, meaning it that it is going to make a ton of money by the time Sunday closes. Read my […]

Friday Box Office: Semi-Pro Flops

The surprise of the weekend is that the Will Ferrell comedy Semi-Pro flopped in theaters this weekend. With a lack of competition, the basketball film still made it into the #1 spot, but will end up with $15-$20 million less than other comparable Will Ferrell movies. Semi-Pro made only $5.4 million at the Friday box […]

Friday Box Office: Jumper Jumps, Definitely, Maybe Slumps

The Friday box office results for the February 15-17 weekend (or for the February 14 to February 18 Valentine’s Day to President’s Day weekend) are here, and they imply a pretty impressive turnout for several new and returning films. The Hayden Christensen-starring sci-fi thriller Jumper benefited from a lack of action films and a slick-looking […]

Friday Box Office: Meet the Spartans Beats Rambo??? Cloverfield Crashes

Wow. I didn’t see this one coming. Proving once again that you can’t keep audience members with no taste down, Meet the Spartans stood up to an invading empire of other films and earned $6.5 million on Friday, January 25, 2008, to beat out both Rambo and Cloverfield. Steve Mason over at SlashFilm predicts the […]
