Poseidon Capsizes Competition on Home Market

September 2nd, 2006

It was a relatively slow week for new releases, but without much competition there were two newcomers finishing atop the standings. In first place was Poseidon as the disaster flick hopes to save its run on the home market; the $8.97 million it was able to bring in put it in first place comfortably, but it won't be enough to help it show a profit any time soon.

Contest - Snakes via Airmail

August 14th, 2006

One of the most hotly anticipated releases of the summer opens this Friday as Snakes on a Plane finally hits theatres after what seems like years of hype. Because of this we have three prizes that will be awarded to both winners this weekend. To win you just have to predict Snakes on a Plane's opening 3-day weekend (Friday to Sunday). Whoever comes closest, without going over, and whoever comes closest, without going under with both win The Lost City on DVD, Half Nelson CD Soundtrack, and... most importantly, a handful of rubber snakes. And since these prizes will be airmailed to the winners, there really will be Snakes on a Plane. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay! More...

Scaring the Easter Box Office into Submission

April 17th, 2006

It was a great weekend at the box office, with the box office growing and records falling. The total box office rose 4.4% to just shy of $120 million, which was $43.7% higher than last year. In fact, the week's number one film earned nearly half of what the total box office brought in this time last year. With two weeks of incredible year-to-year growth, 2006 has pulled ahead of 2005 by 4%, but remember, this time last year was the weakest part of the entire year, so don't celebrate prematurely. If 2006 can keep the growth up even when it goes against Revenge of the Sith, that's when we celebrate. More...

Box Office Suffers a Meltdown

April 10th, 2006

Only one film mentioned in Friday's preview was able to beat expectations to any real degree, and this pushed this week's box office down 19.5% from last weekend. However, at $114 million it was still 31.5% higher than last year, which is more important. Even better news, 2006 has moved ahead of 2005's pace, albeit by a narrow 1% margin, meaning ticket sales are still slower than a year ago. More...

Can Any Film Take the Lead from Ice Age?

April 7th, 2006

There's little doubt that Ice Age: The Meltdown will repeat as box office champion, the real question is how far will it fall. Also of interest, which of the new releases will come in second and how many of the four newcomers will finish in the top five? More...

Movie Website Updates for March 31 - April 6

April 6th, 2006

It's a much busier week this week including several sites that I found through e-mails. Thanks for the tips. (On a side note, if you sent me an e-mail regarding a movie site and I forgot it, please send it again. It was a big list this week and I'm almost positive one or two sites slipped between the cracks.) Unfortunately, while there are plenty of sites on this week's list, there's not a lot of top notch ones. The movie on this list that made me the most excited was The Simpsons Movie, and that one doesn't even have an official movie site, just the teaser trailer. More...

Contest - Box Office Prediction - Chronic Contest

April 3rd, 2006

This week we have another double-shot Box Office Prediction contest, with a prize pack for Phat Girlz (including tank top, hat, emery board and nail polish), and the DVD for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe going to two lucky winners. To win the first prize just predict Phat Girlz' opening 3-day weekend (Friday to Sunday), without going over. To win the DVD, predict Take the Lead's opening 3-day weekend (Friday to Sunday), without going over. Entries must be received by 10am, Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay! More...

2006 Preview: April

April 1st, 2006

March wasn't as strong as expected and April doesn't seem to have what it takes to turn things around. IMDb has a poll they run every month on what film you are looking forward to the most. This time the number one film is Silent Hill was in first with 16.5% of the vote. Number two went to 'Other' at 13.0% of the vote. This is a really, really bad sign. With no advanced buzz, many films will have a hard time attracting an audience, which not only means less people are seeing the movies, but also less people are seeing the trailers for the big summer releases, which means less buzz about the summer releases... On the other hand, there are several limited releases that look promising including Friends with Money, Hard Candy, The Notorious Bettie Page, and Kinky Boots. Unfortunately, all but the first are being released on April 14th. More...

The shaded area represents the expected performance range for a film, based on its opening weekend box office. 95% of films fall within the shaded area. If a film trends towards the top end of the shaded area, it has good legs compared to the average film; if it trends towards the bottom end of the shaded area, it has poor legs. The predictive area is based on movies from the past 5 years.
