Friday Estimates: 12 and Thieves Start Strong with $5.66 million Apiece

January 20th, 2018

12 Strong

As expected, 12 Strong opened in first place on Friday. Technically it tied for first place according to the estimates. It did do a little bit better than expected, earning $5.66 million, which puts it on pace for about $15 million over the weekend. Its reviews got a little bit better since Thursday and are now 56% positive, while it is earning an A from CinemaScore. Clearly this movie is connecting with its target audience. This is great news for Warner Bros., as they only spent $35 million making the movie and likely a little under that advertising it. Strong legs would be a good omen for strong home market sales. On the other hand, I don’t think its going to find an audience internationally. More...

2017 Box Office Totals: $11.09 billion Isn’t Enough

January 20th, 2018

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

NATO, the North American Theater Owners, have released their annual box office numbers, and 2017 had some mixed results. The total box office was down 2.55% to $11.09 billion, which is the third-biggest yearly box office total of all time, behind $11.12 billion earned in 2015 and $11.37 billion earned in 2016. Meanwhile, ticket prices rose 4% to $8.97. This means total attendance was 1.236 billion, the lowest since 1995. That is troubling, but not as apocalyptic as some have made it out to be, as it is only 2.7% lower than 2014’s attendance figure. Obviously, we would like to see increases in this figure every year, but we shouldn’t panic just yet. If 2018 bounces back, then we can still say the overall box office is healthy. If we see another 6-point drop in attendance in 2018, then we can panic. More...

Thursday Night Previews: Thieves Steal Top Spot with $950,000

January 19th, 2018

Den of Thieves

Den of Thieves surprised analysts with $950,000 on Thursday, putting it just ahead of 12 Strong, which managed $900,000. However, 12 Strong does have better reviews and a more mature target demographic, so it should have better legs and still has a better shot at the box office overall. Den of Thieves will beat our prediction and will likely earn a spot in the top five. We will have a better idea where it will end up this time tomorrow when Friday’s numbers are in. More...

Limited and VOD Releases: These Limited Releases are Actually Really Good

January 19th, 2018

This Giant Papier-Mâché Boulder Is Actually Really Heavy

There are two major awards ceremonies this weekend, so it is no surprise there are not many great limited releases to talk about. The art house aficionados are distracted. That’s not to say there are no films worth checking out. Mary And The Witch’s Flower and This Giant Papier-Mâché Boulder Is Actually Really Heavy both look good. Neither look like they will be hits at the box office, but I do want to watch them. More...

Weekend Predictions: Are the New Releases Strong? Or will Jumanji Rule Forever?

January 18th, 2018

12 Strong

The post-holiday weekend is rarely a good week to release a movie and none of the three new releases are expected to be box office successes. 12 Strong is the biggest release and it is also earning the best reviews, although its Tomatometer Score is just 50% positive. Den of Thieves isn’t opening as wide, while its reviews are not as good. It also shares its target audience with 12 Strong, which will hurt its box office chances even more. Finally there’s Forever My Girl, which is barely opening semi-wide and will likely miss the top ten. This weekend last year, Split had a shockingly big opening. In fact, the second place film, xXx: Return of Xander Cage, opened with just over $20 million, which is more than any film is expected to earn this weekend. 2018’s mini-winning streak is about to come to a painful end.

Theater Counts: 12 Strong Leads New Releases

January 18th, 2018

12 Strong

A trio of films with somewhat modest box office ambitions arrive in wide release this weekend, and two films with significant awards ambitions expand into wide release. 12 Strong is the biggest new release of the weekend, and will open in a sturdy 3,002 theaters. If it can find its target audience, it has a real shot at toppling Jumanji from the top of the chart. More...

International Box Office: Jumanji is Welcomed to First Place with $81.75 million

January 18th, 2018

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle leaped into first place with $81.75 million on 33,000 screens in 83 markets for totals of $385.03 million internationally and $669.27 million worldwide. The film debuted in first place in China with $39.74 million on 20,000 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $40.23 million. Had the film only earned $385.03 million in total, it still would have been enough to to break even before the home market. The film will eventually hit $800 million worldwide, which is enough to cover its entire budget and the production budget of the inevitable sequel. More...
