Despicable Me 2 2nd Still

Sequels Dominate The Box Office: Despicable Me 2 and Grown Ups 2 Outshine Pacific Rim

It’s just a fact that history likes to repeat itself. In the same way that Monsters University was the highest selling movie for two weekends in a row earlier this month, Despicable Me 2 has done the same, according to estimates. Grown Ups 2 also made its mark, pulling in $42.5 million, slightly less than […]

Despicable Me 2

Despicable Me 2 Outguns The Lone Ranger

No doubt about it, family movies have just been dominating in the box office this summer. Two weeks after Monsters University topped World War Z, we have two films come in to fight a similar battle of animated vs live action with Despicable Me 2 and The Lone Ranger. Both films premiered this past Tuesday, […]

Monsters U

Monsters U Continues To School Its Competition, #1 Two Weeks In A Row

Much to our amazement, after dominating World War Z last week, Pixar’s Monsters University has clung onto its number one spot for the second consecutive week. This week’s newcomers came in strong: The Heat, starring the duo of Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, had a great opening weekend with 40 million in sales, with almost […]

MONSTERS UNIVERSITY

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: June 21-23

One of the biggest debates in Hollywood leading into this weekend was the question of who would come out on top between Monsters University, the highly anticipated prequel to one of Pixar’s most favored films, Monsters Inc., or World War Z, a film starring Brad Pitt and based off of the Max Brooks horror novel […]

Fast and the Furious 6

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE RESULTS: May 31 – June 2

Historically, the Post-Memorial Day weekend has never shown much (if any) increase in sales, and that’s exactly the case from May 31 through June 2. Fast & Furious 6 has successfully kept itself in the lead for a consecutive week with a 6.5 million gap separating itself from the top performer of this week’s latest […]

Iron Man 3

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE RESULTS: May 10-11

This weekend’s box office results aren’t much of a surprise after last week’s incredible numbers. Just like last week, Iron Man 3 sits atop all of the others by a hearty estimated 70 million, but with less of a gap separating it and the current second highest grossing film, the star-studded The Great Gatsby, which […]

Die Hard

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE RESULTS: February 15-16

It was a good weekend in the world of film seeing as how A Good Day to Die Hard, the fifth installment of the critically acclaimed Die Hard series made its debut earlier this week, and just as most would expect, it beat the rest of the competition. Very closely behind it was last week’s […]

Identity Thief

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE RESULTS: February 8-9

This past weekend saw the dominance of Seth Gordan’s Identity Thief over the rest of the other films being shown in theater by a good gap of 20 million dollars in gross income. The film revolves around a comedic take on one of today’s biggest ongoing problems as it follows Jason Bateman’s character as he […]

Film Review Mama

Weekend Box Office Results: January 18-20

This weekend saw Zero Dark Thirty losing it’s spot to the new kid on the block: Guillermo Del Toro’s latest dark brain-child: Mama. To my own personal surprise, Schwarzenegger’s latest flick, The Last Stand, hardly made a dent on this weekend’s top 10 films with only $6.3 million in sales and a spot on the […]

“Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes” Could Have $53 Million Opening

Yesterday we broke the news that Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes had exceeded Friday night expectation and was headed for a strong $40 million weekend (which would recoup nearly half the film’s $93 million cost). Well, apparently everyone underestimated just how much America would love these apes because expectations were topped once again […]
