With his career in tatters, China’s deadliest Special Forces operative has settled into a quiet life on the sea. But when he crosses paths with a sadistic band of mercenaries terrorizing innocent civilians, he must reaffirm his duty as a soldier and save the day once again. Fists (and bullets, tanks, missiles and much more) will fly.

Home Market Releases for December 12th, 2017

December 12th, 2017

Game of Thrones: Season Seven

Christmas is rapidly approaching, so most of the big releases have already hit the home market. The biggest box office release on this week’s list is Kingsman: The Golden Circle, but its reviews were only mixed. The biggest release overall is Game of Thrones: Season Seven, while the only other competition for Pick of the Week is Election: The Criterion Collection. I’m going to award the title to Game of Thrones, even though the screener didn’t arrive until Monday afternoon. More...

International Box Office: Valerian Has $28.88 million Reasons to Visit China

August 31st, 2017

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets earned first place on the international chart with $32.78 million in 32 countries for totals of $124.12 million internationally and $163.81 million worldwide. The film earned first place in China with $28.88 million over the weekend for a total of $29.24 million. The film has yet to open in South Korea and Italy so it will likely top its production budget worldwide; that’s nowhere near enough to break even, but if it can get to $200 million worldwide, then it can at least safe face.

International Box Office: Creation Rises to First with $42 million

August 24th, 2017

Annabelle: Creation

Annabelle: Creation climbed into first place internationally last weekend, with $42.0 million on 13,209 screens in 56 markets for totals of $96.7 million overseas, and $160.9 million worldwide. The film’s biggest new market was Mexico, where it earned a first-place $8 million on 3,086 screens, while it also earned first place in Brazil with $4.4 million on 1,263 screens. However, its most impressive market was India, where it earned first place with $4.4 million on 1,159 screens. It is very rare for non-Indian films to top the chart in India.


New at The Numbers: Single-Territory Records

August 24th, 2017

Wolf Warriors 2

Here at The Numbers, we strive to improve your reading experience by adding more features we believe you will find interesting. Today, the new feature is top single-market hits. As the chart shows, the biggest single-market hit is Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which earned $936.66 million in North American. The top of the chart is still dominated by releases in the United States, and second place used to belong to Avatar. But this week, Wolf Warriors 2’s Chinese box office topped that figure and it currently has $783.02 million. This is game changing … although we’ll have to see how it plays out. More...

Theater Averages: Gook Does Good with $13,522

August 23rd, 2017


It was a shallow week on the theater average chart with only three films with averages above $10,000 and none that topped that mark by a serious margin. Gook topped the chart with an average of $13,522 in two theaters. Ingrid Goes West is arguably more impressive, as it earned an average of $10,284 in 26 theaters during its second weekend of release. The only other film in the $10,000 club was Crown Heights with an average of $10,058 in three theaters. More...

International Box Office: Wolf Warrior 2 Score Threepeat with $86 million

August 17th, 2017

Wolf Warriors 2

Wolf Warriors 2 remained the top draw on the international market pulling in $86 million in six markets for totals of $685.52 million internationally and $687.45 million worldwide. Almost all of this has been earned in its native China, where it added $85.10 million over the weekend to its running tally, which now sits at $683.80 million. It is currently the biggest ever film in China, both in terms of local currency and American dollars, topping the previous record-holder, The Mermaid. It will have no trouble getting to $800 million worldwide and if it can find audiences outside China, it might get to $900 million or even $1 billion. There’s very little competition for the next few weeks, so that could be the boost the film needs to get to that milestone. It is a long shot, but something to keep an eye on. More...

Weekend Estimates: Annabelle to the Rescue

August 13th, 2017

Annabelle: Creation

After a series of lackluster weekends at the box office, Annabelle: Creation is doing its bit to clear away the end-of-Summertime blues with a $35 million opening this weekend. That’s right in line with the $37 million Annabelle opened with three years ago, which is an impressive performance for a horror franchise. It’s also the best opening for a horror movie since Split’s $40 million start back in January. The first film in the franchise fell away quite rapidly, and ended up with $84 million in total, so a final total of over $100 million is far from assured, but with a production budget of only $15 million, and probably not much more than $20 million in marketing, this should be a highly profitable movie for Warner Bros., especially since the franchise is popular globally. More...

International Box Office: Wolves Feasts on the Competition with $164 million

August 10th, 2017

Wolf Warriors 2

Wolf Warriors 2 remained in top spot on the international chart with $164 million at the weekend. This is dominated by a sophomore stint of $163.38 million in its native China for a two-week total of $471.94 million. It is already the biggest hit in China, crushing The Mermaid, at least in terms of local currency. It still has a ways to go to become the number one film in terms of the US dollar, but it should get there shortly. More...

Theater Averages: River Runs Away with $40,390

August 9th, 2017

Wind River

The Weinstein Co. is breathing a huge sign of relief as Wind River had the best theater average of the weekend with $40,390 in four theaters. This is the fourth best average of the year behind The Big Sick (average of $84,315 in five); The Beguiled ($57,323 in four); and Beauty and the Beast ($41,508 in just over 4,200). Wolf Warriors 2 saw its theater average grow to $15,843. The final film in the $10,000 club was Columbus, which earned an average of $13,410 in two theaters. More...

Weekend Estimates: Dark Tower Sneaks Unconvincing Weekend Win

August 6th, 2017

The Dark Tower

Suddenly, it feels like the end of Summer at the box office. Last weekend’s modest opening for The Emoji Movie made the top end of the chart look weak, and The Dark Tower’s projected $19.5 million debut this weekend has done nothing to fill the void. There are a few films coming out in the next few weeks that could unexpectedly produce robust numbers (The Hitman’s Bodyguard is probably the best bet for a surprise break-out), but there’s nothing on the schedule until Kingsman: The Golden Circle and The Lego Ninjago Movie come out on September 22 that can be relied on to crack $100 million at the domestic box office.

International Box Office: Wolf Warriors 2 goes for the Throat with $148.10 million

August 3rd, 2017

Wolf Warriors 2

Wolf Warriors 2 dominated the international box office with $132.88 million over the weekend in its native China, for a four-day opening of $148.10 million. This is more than the rest of the top five earned combined. More...

Theater Averages: $31,206 is an Inconvenient Start

August 2nd, 2017

An Inconvenient Sequel

This weekend’s winner on the theater average chart is an unusual one. It is rare for documentaries to get a sequel and it is rare for documentaries to land in first place on the theater average chart. An Inconvenient Sequel opened with an average of $31,206 in four theaters, which is a good sign going forward. Menashe looks like it will be another success for A24, as it earned an average of $20,693 in three theaters. Detroit is planning to expand wide on Friday, so its average of $17,510 in 20 theaters is a good start. Brigsby Bear was the final film in the $10,000 club earning an average of $13,217 in three theaters. More...
