Mr. and Mrs. Smith continues its excellent run in Asia with a $2.2 million opening in 450 theatres in China. The film also added $1.8 million in South Korea for an $18 million running total in that market, (although it was pushed out of the top spot in that market.

Slow Dancing to $100 million

Golden Week helped Shall We Dance? climb 19% to $2,250,195 for the weekend and $7,270,348 during its run. The film now has $90.3 million internationally and could break $100 million if it continues to show strong legs in Japan. More...

International: Constantine Continues to Climb

It was a good news, bad news kind of weekend for Constantine. The film remained in top spot in Japan with $2,330,027 on 349 screens for a $9,011,671 running tally in the market. Bad news, it dropped 37% during its second weekend in the market, which is really steep for Japan.

Competition is Super but Incredibles Stay at the Top

Despite three new films in the top five, The Incredibles continue their domination of the home market topping the DVD rentals with $6.97 million and $1.33 million in VHS sales. On the sales side it remains number one this week and in fact is the number one for sales for the year. More...

DVD Releases for March 22, 2005

Every week films get a second chance at success from the home market; or, in some cases, a first chance at success. Here is a list of wide releases, limited releases and a few from the growing TV on DVD section including this week's winner, Star Wars - Clone Wars, Vol. 1 - Buy from Amazon, although Being Julia - Buy from Amazon and Finding Neverland - Buy from Amazon are also worthwhile films. More...

Fockers Finish First, Frequently

2005 got off to a slow start and was off 19% from last weekend and 16% from the first weekend of 2004. This despite the one new release beating all expectations. Next weekend should really turn things around, on the other hand. More...

Quiet Weekend for New Releases

The weekend after Christmas is historically a very poor weekend to release a new film, as is the first weekend of the new year. Of course, normally these are the same weekend, but not this year. So by stretching out this down time we get two weekends in a row where's there's not much new to get bodies into theatres. More...

Fockers Finish First

Meet the Fockers dropped just 9.5% to $41.7 million and will easily make $200 million before its theatrical run is over. When it does it will become the six film from 2004 to do so, but at just 39% positive it will be the lowest rated film in that club. More...

Will 2004 End in a Whimper?

It's the last day of 2004 tonight so you could either call this the last weekend of 2004 or the first weekend of 2005. There needed to be roughly $264 million in box office business since Sunday for 2004 to beat 2003, and while Monday's figures were ok, they've been slipping during the week and will most likely put 2003's $9.158 billion out of reach. As for the predictions this weekend, there should be almost no change in the top five but the overall box office should climb from last weekend. More...

Bah Humbug!

Despite records set for biggest Christmas Day box office, the total box office over the weekend was down significantly from last year. This is partially due to Christmas Eve falling on a Friday, but also has to do with the poor selection of films being released. The weekend was up by 27% from last weekend, but down 28% from last year, leaving 2004 just 0.4% up on 2003 with $8.894 billion to $8.854 billion. With a lead of just $40 million going into the final stretch, 2004 will most likely finish slightly ahead of 2003 in terms of total box office, but will finish behind in term of ticket sales. More...

Crowded Christmas Weekend

The busiest weekend of the year starts off with Christmas Eve, one of the slowest holiday nights of year. Because of this, it make predicting the weekend results much more difficult. Also adding to the difficulty, several films only open / go wide on Saturday. More...
