Friday Estimates: Troopers has Super Opening, I Feel has a Pretty Good One

April 21st, 2018

Super Troopers

Super Troopers 2 opened in first place on Friday with $7.9 million, which is more than I predicted it would make over the entire weekend. On the other hand, this film’s reviews are wea. It managed a B plus from CinemaScore, which isn’t terrible, but it’s not particularly good either. Its legs likely won’t be great, as the target demographic is much more likely to rush out to the movie opening night, leaving the film with just over $17 million during its opening weekend. This could be more than its combined budget, especially if you disregard the money it earned from Kickstarter. (The film doesn’t have to earn a profit on those numbers.) More...

Thursday Night Previews: Comedies Conquer Midnight Previews

April 20th, 2018

Super Troopers 2

Both new comedies beat expectations with Super Troopers 2 coming out on top with $1.35 million. It will easily top predictions, but all is not so rosy. Its reviews are just 33% positive and the film might not find an audience beyond its target audience. That said, it won’t take the film long to match the original’s entire domestic run. It won’t get there over the weekend, especially with the Franchise double-shot happening in nearly 1,000 theaters, but it will get there. More...

Limited and VOD Releases: Ghost of a Chance

April 20th, 2018


It is not a particularly good week for limited releases, as there are a number of them with reviews that are good, but not good enough for limited release. There are some that I’m interested in seeing, Ghost Stories, Little Pink House, and Imitation Girl among them. More...

Weekend Predictions: The Quiet Before the Storm

April 19th, 2018

I Feel Pretty

There are two wide releases this week, I Feel Pretty and Super Troopers 2, as well as a semi-wide release that has a shot at the top ten, Traffik. However, most analysts think A Quiet Place will return to first place on the box office chart. Meanwhile, Infinity War opens next week and that’s all most moviegoers are talking about and this will likely really hurt this week’s box office. This weekend last year, The Fate of the Furious remained on top with $38 million, while the top three films combined earned $60 million. I don’t think 2018 will be able to match that, but it should be close. More...

Theater Averages: Box Office is Full of Grace

April 18th, 2018

Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami

Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami had the best opening of the limited releases earning an average of $18,724 in three theaters. The only other film in the $10,000 Club was The Rider, which earned an average of $14,081, also in three theaters. More...

International Box Office: Rampage Runs Roughshod over Competition topping Century Mark

April 18th, 2018


Rampage dominated the international box office earning more than the rest of the top ten combined with $115.7 million on 40,200 screens in 61 markets for a worldwide opening weekend of $151.5 million. The film’s biggest opening was in China, where it managed $54.88 million on 21,500 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $55.56 million. This is a good result, compared to recent results. It’s better than Tomb Raider managed, but not as good as Ready Player One, for example. The U.K. and South Korea were in a close race for second place with the former earning $5.8 million on 883 screens and the latter earning $4.99 million on 909 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $5.60 million.

Home Market Releases for April 17th, 2018

April 17th, 2018


It’s a slow week on the home market, which is common for this time of year. The biggest release of the week, The Post, is also one of the best and one of only three contenders for Pick of the Week. In the end, I went with MST3K: Season 11 and awarded it the honor. More...

Weekend Wrap-Up: Rampage Climbs Ahead of A Quiet Place with $35.75 million

April 16th, 2018


Rampage was widely expected to earn first place over the weekend, and it did. However, A Quiet Place gave it a real run for its money and after Friday’s estimates, it looked like the horror film would repeat on top. Meanwhile, Truth or Dare was also a pleasant surprise at the box office earning close to $19 million on a $3.5 million production budget. Overall, the box office fell 9.8% from last weekend to $147 million. This is also 13% lower than the same weekend last year. That said, The Fate of the Furious opened this weekend last year and earned almost $100 million, so it could have been worse. Year-to-date, 2018 is still behind behind 2017 by $70 million or 2.0% or $3.27 billion to $3.33 billion. More...

Featured Blu-ray Review: Black Eagle

April 16th, 2018

Black Eagle

Black Eagle is one of Jean-Claude Van Damme earliest roles. It is so early that he’s not the good guy. He’s not even the main villain. He’s the main villain’s muscle. Is this film worth checking out for fans of the Muscles from Brussels? Will fans of 1980s actions films be entertained? More...

Featured TV on DVD Review: MST3K: Season 11

April 15th, 2018


I previously reviewed the episodes of this series when they first came out on Netflix, but this week, the full season comes out on DVD or Blu-ray. Are there any extras on the DVD / Blu-ray? Is it worth the price? More...
