Box-Office Wrap-Up: Apr. 3 - Apr. 5, 2009

Wow. Fast and Furious just posted the best April opening ever... by THIRTY MILLION DOLLARS. That's lunacy. It's also the best opening weekend of the year, and it topped 2 Fast 2 Furious by $22.5m too. I thought my prediction might be a little light, but I didn't think I'd be $34m short. In the...

Box-Office Oracle: Apr. 3 - Apr. 5, 2009

#1 movie predicted correctly: 1 Week in a Row 1. Fast and Furious It should win, it's more a question of dollars at this point. Do you put it at Tokyo Drift's $8k per theater? Or do you like the original's $15k per theater? I've decided to lean a little towards the original and say... Read more »

Box-Office Wrap-Up: Mar. 27 - Mar. 29, 2009

In June 2008 Kung Fu Panda was released and went on to clear $632 million. After a November 2008 release Madagascar 2 cleared $586 million. And now Monsters vs. Aliens opened in the ballpark of both, meaning it will have to really falter to make less than $500 million. So I ask you: Is Dreamworks... Read more »

#1 movie predicted correctly: 0 Weeks in a Row 1. Monsters vs. Aliens The top ten at the box-office will fly past $100m again, after four weeks in a row of at or under that mark. Much of the money is going to come from Monsters vs. Aliens -- a film getting over 4100 theaters.... Read more »

Box-Office Wrap-Up: Mar. 20 - Mar. 22, 2009

Good game, Nic Cage. You got me. I've heard all kinds of things on Knowing, to the point where I probably just need to see it myself. Knowing has made more domestically than Next, The Wicker Man, and Bangkok Dangerous, so clearly I had it pegged incorrectly. Let's get into it. #1 movie predicted correctly:... Read more »

'Knowing' Looks to Top Weekend Box-Office with $24 Million

Nicolas Cage in Knowing Photo: Summit Entertainment It has been only three weeks since the release of Watchmen and it has already tumbled out of the conversation, and this week it looks to drop yet another 60% as Steve Mason at Big Hollywood thinks it will stagger to a $110 million domestic box-office run, certainly...

Box-Office Oracle: Mar. 20 - Mar. 22, 2009

#1 movie predicted correctly: 2 Weeks in a Row 1. I Love You, Man This weekend is a nightmare to predict. Partly because it will be a very weak box-office weekend. And partly because there isn't really a film to champion. I'm taking I Love You, Man because I feel like awareness of Rudd and... Read more »

Box-Office Wrap-Up: Mar. 13 - Mar. 15, 2009

How about nailing that top slot? People love Dwayne Johnson just as much as I expected, a rare occurrence lately. What's that? Watchmen tanked and you're hopping mad? Well then... we better get into it. #1 movie predicted correctly: 2 Weeks In A Row 1. Race to Witch Mountain Predictions on other (lesser) websites were... Read more »
