Game Of Box Offices: “Terminator: Dark Fate” Might Not Be Back After Quiet Opening

Grabbing the Box Office crown was “Terminator: Dark Fate,” but when you open almost $10 million short of your projection, that’s got to feel less like a win. Debuting at $29 million, that $38 million projection feels a million miles away. That’s middle of the road as far as “Terminator” openings go, but does not invue confidence in an ongoing franchise. “Joker” came in … Read More Game Of Box Offices: “Terminator: Dark Fate” Might Not Be Back After Quiet Opening

Box Office: May 11th, 2018 – Avengers: Infinity War: Week #3

With no viable competition, “Avengers: Infinity War” scores the number one weekend for the third weekend in a row, beating out newcomers “Life Of The Party” and “Breaking In” by $45 million. “Overboard” and “A Quiet Place” both hold onto a spot in the Top Five as well. The usual suspects fill out the Top Ten, with “Black Panther” still holding on to a … Read More Box Office: May 11th, 2018 – Avengers: Infinity War: Week #3

Box Office: May 4th, 2018 – Avengers: Infinity War: Week #2

Not a surprise, the behemoth “Avengers: Infinity War” continued to dominate the box office this weekend, with $114.7 million, a 55.5% drop from last week but still well enough above the line to stay number one. It misses breaking the record for the best second weekend of all-time, as “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” landed at $149.2 million on its second weekend in December … Read More Box Office: May 4th, 2018 – Avengers: Infinity War: Week #2

Box Office: April 27th, 2018 – Avengers: Infinity War

Just like that, “Avengers: Infinity War” has delivered not only the biggest domestic opening weekend of all-time, with $257 million, beating out “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and its $247 million, but the world’s biggest opening as well, beating out “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” ($529 million) and “The Fate Of The Furious” ($542 million), coming in at $630 million and that’s not even … Read More Box Office: April 27th, 2018 – Avengers: Infinity War

Box Office: April 20th, 2018 – A Quiet Place: Week #2

“A Quiet Place” comes back after one week to take back the crown from “Rampage” with $20.9 million while the Dwayne Johnson runner-up narrowly missed two weeks as champ by less than $1 million. Chalk that up to great word-of-mouth for the John Krasinski horror flick. The new releases both did as expected, with “I Feel Pretty,” the Amy Schumer PG-13 comedy coming in … Read More Box Office: April 20th, 2018 – A Quiet Place: Week #2

Box Office: April 13th, 2018 – Rampage

John Krasinki’s “A Quiet Place” put up a good fight, but unfortunately Dwayne Johnson’s “Rampage” was too much for it to handle. Beating it out by only $2.7 million, “Rampage” becomes the fourth new film in four weeks to take over the number one spot, with “Pacific Rim: Uprising,” “Ready Player One,” and “A Quiet Place” all taking the top spots in their first … Read More Box Office: April 13th, 2018 – Rampage

Box Office: April 6th, 2018 – A Quiet Place

With a new film pushing its way to number every weekend for the past few weekends, the first weekend in April follows suit, with the original horror film “A Quiet Place” shoving out “Ready Player One” with a huge $50 million opening. Box Office Mojo had predicted “A Quiet Place” landing somewhere between $33-40 million over the weekend and it blew past those expectations. … Read More Box Office: April 6th, 2018 – A Quiet Place

Box Office: March 30th, 2018 – Ready Player One

“Ready Player One” took out “Pacific Rim: Uprising” this weekend, as expected. Even opening a day earlier than everything else, “Ready Player One” landed where expected with almost $42 million. That’s Spielberg’s biggest opening weekend since “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” back in 2008, which opened to $100 million. It’s also his fifth biggest opening weekend ever for the director, … Read More Box Office: March 30th, 2018 – Ready Player One

Box Office: March 23rd, 2018 – Pacific Rim: Uprising

After five weeks at number one, Marvel’s “Black Panther” has been dethroned. The last film to hit that stat was “Avatar” (2009), which actually went on as number one for seven weeks and was eventually beat out by the Nicholas Sparks adaptation “Dear John” starring Amanda Seyfried and Channing Tatum on its eighth week. “Pacific Rim: Uprising,” led by John Boyega, takes the throne, … Read More Box Office: March 23rd, 2018 – Pacific Rim: Uprising
