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 »

#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 »

Box-Office Oracle: Mar. 13 - Mar. 15, 2009

#1 movie predicted correctly: 1 Weeks in a Row 1. Race to Witch Mountain Gonna be tough at the top. Theoretically three films could win, and it should end up being the second worst weekend of the year. We've got the kid's film, the holdover from last weekend, and the horror. I'm going with the...

Box-Office Wrap-Up: Mar. 6 - Mar. 8, 2009

Wow. That's a beating for Watchmen. $55m would be a nice opening... if the movie wasn't sporting a $200m budget (I'm guessing here but it sounds about right). The other crazy story was how little everything else made. Let's get into this one. #1 movie predicted correctly: 1 Week In A Row 1. Watchmen After... Read more »

Box-Office Oracle: Mar. 6 - Mar. 8, 2009

#1 movie predicted correctly: 0 Weeks in a Row 1. Watchmen This is a rough weekend to predict. All kinds of opposing data in the air. On one hand, there is nothing else out for people to see. 300's March opening weekend record came against Wild Hogs, Ghost Rider and Zodiac in its comp-set. What... Read more »

Box-Office Wrap-Up: Feb. 27 - Mar. 1, 2009

Wow. Madea repeats, even after dropping 60% from last weekend. The road is as clear as it possibly could be for Watchmen, it is cupcake city at the box-office right now. #1 movie predicted correctly: 0 Weeks In A Row 1. Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail I pretty much had this dialed in, the... Read more »

Girl's Best Friend: A Post-Madea America

Photo: Lionsgate Weren't the Oscars grand? All that song and dance just made you feel like a kid again. Hugh Jackman's opening number also probably reminded you that you never saw The Reader. Well, let me save you the trouble: the film wasn't re-writing history. What you expected should happen at the end of the... Read more »
