Weekend Wrap-Up: Squad, Sausage Top Dogs, Strings as Summer Ends

August 23rd, 2016

Sausage Party

Well, summer is over, that much is obvious from the weekend results. The “best” new release of the weekend was War Dogs and it earned less than $15 million earning just third place. The worst new release, Ben-Hur, didn’t even reach the top five. The overall box office fell 23% to $132 million. However, this is still 24% more than this weekend last year. The year-over-year gain is impressive, but not surprising, as the worst new release this year still opened better than the best new release from last year, Sinister 2. This helped 2016’s year-over-year lead grow to 5.6% or $400 million at $7.64 billion to $7.24 billion. More...

Weekend Estimates: Newcomers Can’t Dislodge Suicide Squad

August 21st, 2016

Suicide Squad

Three even-matched debutants proved to be no match for the incumbents at the box office this weekend, with Suicide Squad taking a third straight victory at the box office with $20.71 million, according to Warner Bros.’ Sunday morning projection. Sausage Party stays in second with $15.3 million, and that leaves the new entrants in 3rd, 4th and 5th. This was a weekend where diversity isn’t the problem, but novelty is. More...

Thursday Night Previews: Dogs Go to War with $1.9 million Preemptive Strike - Updated with Ben-Hur Numbers

August 19th, 2016

War Dogs

War Dogs got off to a surprisingly strong start with $1.9 million during its midnight previews last night. This is about 20% more than Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates made a few weeks ago. The two films are great comparisons, but we don’t have a lot of other films to work with. This is good news for the film and makes it likely that it will beat predictions by a small margin. More...
