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 […]

Man Of Steel Still

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: June 14-16

Let’s be honest: was this really a surprise? Man of Steel made a major hit at the box office this weekend with early estimates coming in at an astounding $113 million dollars. Because of that, the film went on to hit the new all-time record for the highest grossing film for the month of June, […]

The Purge Still

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE RESULTS: June 7-9

Things are in a bit of an awkward phase right now within the film industry. Seeing as how Man Of Steel is set to premiere next weekend, we’re currently experiencing this lack of heavy hitters for the summer season while still seeing films like Fast & Furious 6 and Star Trek Into Darkness leaving their […]

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 […]

Iron Man 3

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE RESULTS: May 3-4

With several college’s letting out at this time of year, summertime action movies are making their return to the silver screen. Just like you might’ve assumed, Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man 3 made a major hit at the box office. With over 170 million made in sales from Friday and Saturday alone, it should come […]

The Croods Still

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE RESULTS: March 22-24

This weekend was a prime example of the unexpected nature of the box office. Dreamworks Films’ latest effort, The Croods was among the year’s first chart-topping animated films, with a performance over 40 million in sales. Distantly behind that was Anoine Fuqua’s Olympas Has Fallen, which charted at #2 with 30 million. James Franco’s uber-raunchy […]

Oz

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE RESULTS: March 15-17

This weekend left a decent mark on the box office charts. While seven of the films that landed this week’s top ten grossing films for the weekend made less than ten million dollars, the top three made a modest performance. Oz held onto its top of the charts spot it had since last week with […]

WARM BODIES

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE RESULTS: February 1-3

To be frank, this weekend’s results didn’t come as a surprise. Jonathan Levine’s Warm Bodies arrived just in time for Valentines season with it’s subversive romantic approach to the horror genre. With great timing like that, its number one spot on this week’s top ten highest earning films of the weekend could be considered expected. […]
