September 10th, 2006

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest will repeat as overall box office champion, but there is a question of how far it will fall during its second weekend of release. Also, the two new wide releases are tracking with nearly identical numbers and that should set up a real race for second place. More...

2006 Preview: July

Neither of June's potential monster hits lived up to expectations, and that's a trend that everyone hopes doesn't continue into July.

But while the rest of the month is decidedly weaker, there are still several other movies that should earn more than $100 million. More...
