A History of Violence took top spot on the rental charts with $8.91 million in combined rentals during its first week of release.

Potter Plummets but Remains on Top

December 5th, 2005

The post holiday weekend was particularly brutal this year with the overall box office in free-fall. Receipts were down 47.6% from last weekend and it was also down compared to last year, although by a mere 0.5%. Year-to-date, 2005 is still behind by 6% and we're quickly running out of chances to catch up. More...

Potter Gobbles up Thanksgiving Box Office

November 28th, 2005

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire continues to prop up an otherwise sagging box office. It was the only film to top $20 million over the long weekend, the first time that just a single movie has topped that figure over Thanksgiving weekend since 1997. This led to a decrease of 8.4% compared to last weekend, but the three-day weekend was still 1.7% more than last year. The five-day result was even better, with 2005 up 2.9% over 2004. Year-to-date, 2005 is still 6% behind, but with a few more potential monster hits on their way, it could close the gap. More...

2005 Preview: November

November 1st, 2005

Wow, that sucked.

October was a terrible month at the box office and all the gains made in September were erased. November promises to be better than October, but the real question is whether it will be better than November of last year. On the plus side, last November was pretty bad, with most films missing expectations. On the down side, there is only one guaranteed hit this month, and only a couple of others that should also perform well with both the critics and the moviegoers. If you have predictions of your own to make, feel free to head over to our forum and share them with our readers.
