Weekend Predictions: Will Avengers go to Infinity?

April 26th, 2018

Avengers: Infinity War

Infinity War. Do I need to say more? Infinity War is easily the most anticipated movie of the year, and some argue the most anticipated film in the past few years. There’s even talk that it will have the best three-day opening of all time. This weekend last year, The Fate of the Furious earned its third first place result with just under $20 million. Infinity War could make twice that during its midnight previews. It will make more than the entire box office made last year. More...

Theater Averages: Stories Doesn’t Give Up the Ghost

April 25th, 2018

Ghost Stories

Ghost Stories was the only film in the $10,000 club earning $11,972 in its lone theater over the weekend. Bharat Ane Nenu did come close with an average of $9,180 in just over 300 theaters. More...

International Box Office: Rampage Retains Lead on International Chart

April 25th, 2018


Rampage remained in first place on the international chart with $58.0 million on 33,140 screens in 61 markets, for totals of $217.6 million internationally and $283.3 million worldwide. The studio’s share of this is very likely above the film’s $120 million production budget, so it has an excellent shot at breaking even early in its home market run. The film’s biggest market of the weekend was China, where it earned $27.07 million on 16,900 screens over the weekend for a two-week total of $106.57 million. The film has yet to open in France, Germany, and Japan and by the time it’s done, it will be very close to breaking even. More...

Home Market Releases for April 24th, 2018

April 25th, 2018

Paddington 2

Paddington 2 is the biggest release of the week and clearly at least one of the best. However, it isn’t the only film that’s a Pick of the Week contender. Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story, Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, and others were all in contention for that honor. In the end, the Paddington 2 Blu-ray Combo Pack earned that title. More...

Weekend Wrap-Up: Quiet Retakes Top Spot, Rampage Right Behind

April 24th, 2018

A Quiet Place

As expected, A Quiet Place returned to the first place with $20.94 million over the weekend. However, Rampage was much closer than expected with $20.09 million. It is on pace for $100 million domestically, assuming Infinity War doesn't reduce it to rumble this coming weekend. The new releases were led by I Feel Pretty, which came within a rounding error of expectations, while Super Troopers 2 beat expectations earning fourth place. Traffik barely made the top ten, but it could have been worse. Overall, the box office still fell 17% from last week, falling to $122 million. This is still 13% higher than the same weekend last year, which I was not expecting. I really thought The Fate of the Furious would earn more than the top two films earned this weekend, while the depth was also a lot better this week than I was anticipating. Year-to-date, 2017 is still behind 2018, by a 2.1% or $75 million margin at $3.43 billion to $3.51 billion. This should change this coming weekend. It better change. More...

Featured Blu-ray and DVD Review: Mary and the Witch’s Flower

April 22nd, 2018

Mary and the Witch’s Flower

Mary and the Witch’s Flower is the latest release from GKIDS. GKIDS is the only distributor that can routinely release animated films in limited release and have them do well at the box office. For example, this film earned over $2 million domestically. The film doesn’t come out on DVD or Blu-ray Combo Pack until May the 1st, but the screener arrived early and I was able to get to the review this weekend. Is it worth waiting for? More...

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...
