New at The Numbers: Monthly Milestones, Record of Records, and Happy Holidays

Here at The Numbers, we strive to improve your reading experience by adding more features we believe you will find interesting. Today, we have three new features to talk about, one of which is really timely. We recently mentioned most $100 million movies per year, while this week we announce most $100 million movies per month. This looks at all of the movies that earned more than $100 million, or $200 million, $300 million, etc. and what month of the year they debuted. It should come as no surprise that May, June, and December are at the top. Nor it is a surprise that January, April and September are at the bottom. The biggest surprise on this list is Crocodile Dundee, which is the biggest box office hit ever released in September, for now. No movie that has opened in September has ever earn more than $175 million, for now. Crocodile Dundee wasn’t expected to be a big hit, because it had two mostly unknown leads, hence the September release date. Despite this, it opened in first place, where it remained for two months, and it didn’t fall out of the top ten for nearly six. This is the kind of legs you never see any more.

However, all good things must come to an end and Crocodile Dundee is about to be overtaken by It, which is re-writing the September record book. Speaking of breaking records... More...

Featured Blu-ray review: Crocodile Dundee / Crocodile Dundee II

May 12th, 2014

Before I say anything about this Blu-ray... Crocodile Dundee is a trilogy. It is a trilogy, but they are releasing just the first two films. That's a big slight. The first Crocodile Dundee cost less than $10 million, but it made more than $300 million worldwide in 1986. Just two years later, Crocodile Dundee 2 came out, and while it made nearly $100 million less worldwide, it was still a huge hit. Nearly 30 years later, these two films are coming out on a two-disc Blu-ray set. Has it aged well? Will fans of the films want to pick it up? More...
