This weekend sees Warner Bros.'s 12 Strong and STX's R-rated heist thriller Den of Thieves hitting theaters, both of which are targeting male audiences, which means they'll also have to contend with the NFL conference championship games this Sunday. Additionally, a couple of notable expansions are taking place this weekend along with Roadside's moderate release of Forever My Girl. That being said, all appear as if they'll be settling in behind last weekend's #1 and #2 films, as Jumanji: Wel...
For a second weekend in a row Sony's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle takes the weekend's top spot, this time holding off three new wide releases over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend as well as Fox's nationwide expansion of Steven Spielberg's The Post, which finished in the runner-up position. As for the weekend's three brand new releases, Lionsgate's The Commuter managed to exceed expectations while both Paddington 2 and Proud Mary fell a bit short. Meanwhile Fox's The Greatest Sh...
With Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday this marks the third weekend out of the last four to feature a long weekend at the box office, and with it comes three new wide releases along with the nationwide expansion of Steven Spielberg's The Post. New releases include WB's pick-up of Paddington 2 from the Weinstein Co., Screen Gems' Proud Mary starring Taraji P. Henson and Lionsgate's release of The Commuter re-teaming Liam Neeson with director Jaume Collet-Serra for the fourth time. Yet, d...
The December box office delivered a record $1.323 billion in ticket sales, an 11% improvement over last year. The month was super-charged by the more than $517 million brought in by Disney's Star Wars: The Last Jedi as well as the performance of Sony's late year hit Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. As a result, what was a year-to-year deficit of -4.3% heading into December, 2017 finished down -2.7% when compared to 2016's record grosses becoming the third year in a row to finish with over $1...
Heading into the weekend Sony's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle ranked #7 on the list of movies that had never reached #1 at the weekend box office. After Friday's estimates the film ranked fourth on the list, but as of today it no longer occupies a position after a stellar third weekend saw the action comedy lead the way at the weekend box office while topping $500 million globally. Additionally, Universal's release of Blumhouse's Insidious: The Last Key finished with a strong second place ...
The last two times New Year's Day fell on a Monday were 2000 and, most recently, 2006. Both instances saw films in the top ten show significant growth over the weekend prior. Similarly, if we were to look at the years 2001, 2007 and 2012, where New Year's Day fell on Tuesday, we again see strong performances though 2001 shows The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring dipping in its second weekend and 2012 shows The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey dropping in its third. Similar to thi...
Less than two weeks remain in 2017 and in a year that saw the worst summer season in over ten years, 2017 has found strength elsewhere. Thanks to strong results in the spring and fall months and a holiday season that is currently pacing 11.1% ahead of last year*, 2017 should become the third in a row to deliver over $11 billion in domestic grosses. One obvious factor in the late charge is the near-record opening for Star Wars: The Last Jedi last weekend and, while Last Jedi hopes to fol...
Star Wars: The Last Jedi delivered on expectations, debuting with the second largest opening weekend of all-time and propelling the box office to the third largest weekend ever based on estimates. In an attempt at counter-programming, Fox's Ferdinand got off to a bit of a slow start against the might of Star Wars as well as the continued strong performance of Pixar's Coco as it fell below Mojo's expectations, though the studio is optimistic when it comes to the film's future. With an es...
After a strong performance last month, the December box office is currently pacing ahead of 2016 by 3% while the overall year is still pacing just a bit behind 2016, currently by 4.2%. However, now comes what will surely be the highest grossing domestic release of the year, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The latest film in the Star Wars franchise is looking to become only the fourth domestic release to ever open over $200 million, sure to assist in closing the year-to-year gap even further. Mean...
The year saw a lift from November box office grosses as this past month was only the third time ever November receipts totaled more than $1 billion, led by Disney and Marvel's release of Thor: Ragnarok, which delivered nearly 28% of the month's total. Heading into the November, 2017 was trailing 2016 by 5.3%, but coming out of it this year was 4.4% behind 2016 thanks to what was the third largest November ever and a 5.1% improvement over November last year. Disney led the month &mda...
Disney and Pixar's Coco topped the weekend box office for the third week in a row. In fact, the only shake-up in the weekend top five compared to the last two weeks is to see A24's The Disaster Artist landing in fourth position as it expanded into 840 theaters this weekend following its strong limited bow last week. As for the weekend's only new wide release, Broad Green's release of Just Getting Started struggled to finish over $3 million, barely eking into the top ten. With an estima...
Disney and Pixar's Coco led the post-Thanksgiving frame in what was a repeat of last weekend's top five thanks in large part to no new wide releases this weekend. That doesn't mean there isn't anything to discuss as A24 enjoyed a great weekend with Lady Bird continuing its strong play and the studio's much-talked about feature The Disaster Artist finished just outside the top ten in its limited bow from just 19 locations. Additionally, Fox Searchlight's The Shape of Water was the weekend's ...
Following a strong opening last weekend, Disney and Pixar's Coco is looking at a second weekend atop the box office. In fact, with no new wide releases hitting the marketplace this weekend's top ten is looking a lot like last weekend's as the top five seems unlikely to change while a few expanding titles jockey for position in bottom five. There are, however, some choice limited releases beginning their roll-out this weekend including A24's much anticipated The Disaster Artist and Guillerm...
With a strong, five-day debut Disney and Pixar's Coco joined the ranks of the many successful films Disney has launched over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Receiving high marks from critics and audiences alike, the film finished atop the weekend box office and is looking at solid returns throughout the holiday season. Additionally, WB and DC Comics' Justice League and Lionsgate's Wonder played mostly as expected as the three films contributed to a healthy helping of receipts at the holi...
One look at the Thanksgiving opening weekend records shows how important the holiday has been to Disney, which currently holds nine of the top ten three-day and five-day opening weekend records including last year's Moana, which opened with $82 million over the five-day holiday, the second largest of all-time. This weekend the studio debuts the latest Pixar feature, Coco, which has already become the largest single release in Mexico and looks to make an impact domestically this weekend. ...
Warner Bros. and DC Comics' Justice League struggled compared to expectations as it failed to top $100 million over the course of its three-day weekend. Meanwhile, it was Lionsgate's Wonder that captured audience attention, debuting with an excellent $27 million, topping Thor: Ragnarok for a second place finish, positioning itself well for the holiday weeks ahead. Additionally, A24's Lady Bird continued its impressive run in limited release as it makes way for a nationwide debut over Thank...
This weekend Marvel's latest hit Thor: Ragnarok is looking to top $250 million after 17 days in release while Warner Bros. and DC Comics unveil their latest entry into the DC Extended Universe, Justice League looking to make a splash globally, though it's not the only new release the weekend has to offer. Lionsgate will debut the highly anticipated adaptation Wonder while Sony is debuting their faith-based animated title The Star. All-in-all we should be looking at a strong weekend in which...
After September delivered record numbers, the month of October saw the 2017 box office return to its downward trend, delivering calendar grosses down 15.6% compared to last year, falling below $600 million for the first time in ten years. Perhaps most startling is that with 287 films in release, the average per film was just $1.9 million, making it the first time that average has ever fallen below $2.1 million for any individual month based on BoxOfficeMojo's records going back to 1982. Th...
Thor: Ragnarok delivered an expected #1 finish in its second weekend at the domestic box office, pushing the film's domestic total ahead of both the first and second Thor films after just ten days in release. However, just as much a story are the strong openings for a batch of newcomers, both wide and and limited, as Paramount's Daddy's Home 2 and Fox's Murder on the Orient Express both delivered ahead of expectations and Fox Searchlight's Three Billboards averaged $80,000 per theater over ...
The holiday season is underway with Disney and Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok getting things off to a nice start last weekend and ready to easily repeat atop the box office this weekend. Battling for second will be a pair of new films looking for $20+ million debuts in the form of Paramount's comedy sequel Daddy's Home 2 and Fox's adaptation of Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express. We'll also be keeping a close eye on Greta Gerwig's Lady Bird, which has become one of the most buzzed abo...
