Weekend Wrap-Up: Black Panther Re-Writes the Record Book

February 20th, 2018

Black Panther

Black Panther destroyed expectations over the Presidents Day long weekend earning $202.00 million / $242.16 million over the 3-day / 4-day weekend. The list of records this film broke seems endless, but we will get to that in a bit. Unfortunately, the two other new releases, Early Man and Samson, both bombed. On a more positive note, the total box office rose 103% from last weekend reaching $285 million. This is the third-biggest weekend of all-time, and the biggest non-December weekend. This is also 92% higher than the same weekend last year. Even if we use Presidents Day of last year, 2018 was still 51% higher. More importantly, 2018 completely erased the small deficit it had and is now ahead of 2017 by $120 million or 8% at $1.62 billion to $1.50 billion. More impressively, 2018 is even ahead of 2017 in terms of ticket sales at 178 million to 172 million. More...

Home Market Releases for February 20th, 2018

February 19th, 2018

The Florida Project

It’s another slow week; however, I prefer to think of it as the calm before the storm, as there are several blockbusters and Oscar contenders coming out over the next few weeks. That’s not to say there are no big hits or Oscar contenders on this week’s list. The Florida Project and Loving Vincent are both up for an Oscar, while there are some massive hits coming out on VOD, like Thor: Ragnarok. As for the Pick of the Week, it was an easy choice: The Florida Project on Blu-ray. More...

Monday Estimates: Black Panther Now Over $200 Million in Three Days

February 19th, 2018

Black Panther

Disney posted updated weekend projections for Black Panther this morning, and if your jaw was dropped already, it’s time to pick it up and drop it again. The film’s box office fell just 9% on Sunday to an estimated $60.096 million, giving it the second-best Sunday in box office history, just fractionally behind The Force Awakens’ $60.553 million. That pushes Panther’s three-day opening weekend to an estimated $201.797 million, making it the fifth film in history to top $200 million on opening weekend.

There are a couple of other telling statistics that reveal just how strongly the film is performing… More...

Analysis: What Gives a Marvel Movie Legs?

February 18th, 2018

Black Panther

Black Panther is currently eating up the charts, with a projected $218 million 4-day opening. The film is tracking for the second- or third-best opening weekend for a Marvel Cinematic Universe film, so its status as a hit is practically confirmed, even if it ends up having the worst multiplier in MCU history. That said, and despite having 17 previous films in the series, the patterns for what gives an MCU film good legs or not is hard to pin down.

Weekend Estimates: Black Panther Powers to $218 Million Long Weekend

February 18th, 2018

Black Panther

Black Panther is riding a waving of positive feedback all the way to record territory this weekend, with Disney projecting a $192 million three-day, and $218 million four-day weekend, as of Sunday morning. That gives the film three outright records right off the bat: biggest weekend in February, biggest three-day Presidents Day weekend, and biggest four-day Presidents Day weekend. In each case, the film is topping the jaw-dropping-at-the-time opening of Deadpool in 2016. More...

Featured Blu-ray Review: Lady and the Tramp: The Signature Collection

February 17th, 2018

Lady and the Tramp

Lady and the Tramp first hit theaters in 1955 and over the years it has earned nearly $100 million at the box office. It has also been released numerous times on the home market, including multiple times on Blu-ray. The newest edition, The Signature Collection Blu-ray Combo Pack, comes out on the 27th of February. However, the screener arrived early and I have nothing else to review this week, so I thought I would get to it early. (It also comes out on Video on Demand this Tuesday). More...
