Box Office Numbers: #FAMILY


Apr 06
// Nick Valdez
As of this writing, I've yet to see Furious 7 for myself. As I predicted forever ago, Walker's untimely demise drew an insane amount of people to the film's premiere over the weekend. It's sadly going to be the best performer...

Box Office Numbers: Insurgency, Schmensurgency


Mar 23
// Nick Valdez
I haven't been to the theater in quite awhile. This job usually affords me the opportunity, but due to some life stuff I haven't even seen the inside of a theater for about two months now. But thankfully, this is all during M...

American Sniper is the top grossing film of 2014


That's some prolific legs for any film
Mar 09
// Matthew Razak
I had a lot of problems with American Sniper as a movie about PTSD and veterans, but despite these issues it had a very good redeeming value of bringing Veteran issues to the forefront of the discussion in America. It se...

Box Office Numbers: Mr. Roboto


Mar 09
// Nick Valdez
Well, it appears we're still in the Winter slump. It's a rough opening for Chappie. It won the box office, but only with $13 million. But it was even worse for the other opening movie, Unfinished Business. Despite some unique...

Box Office Numbers: Gettin' Focused Wit It


Mar 02
// Nick Valdez
It's a shame that no matter how many films Will Smith is in, I'll always reference Gettin Jiggy Wit It. Seeing as Focus was alright, and secured the top spot at the box office with $19 million, maybe I'll let it go? Uhhhhh...na na na na na na na.  Hit the jump for the box office performances for the February 27-March 1 weekend. [via Rentrak]

Box Office Numbers: The Grouch

I missed the Oscars last night (along with the Flixist chat), but I've caught up on some highlights. Tegan and Sara gave out Lego Oscars (even if the performance was a bit shaky), Common and John Legend brought the house down...

There were a couple of notes I wrote that didn't make it into my Fifty Shades of Grey review. Since it nearly broke the February box office opening record (which currently belongs to The Passion of the Christ's $83.8 million)...

Box Office Numbers: Wumbo


Feb 09
// Nick Valdez
Hey, it took a yellow sponge to dethrone American Sniper's impressive run! I guess they set their belts to wumbo, The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water took the top box office spot with an impressive $56 million. It defini...

Box Office Numbers: Soup or Salad


Feb 02

If you're not a football or Katy Perry fan, this past weekend must've been the worst. But there were plenty of things to like for sure like those sharks, that Mexican avocado bear, and the game was one of the best Super Bowls...

You ever see Steven Universe? It's the best cartoon you're not watching yet. The reason I bring this up is one of the characters, Garnet, is actually voiced by Estelle who sings the song the title of this week's Box Office Nu...

Box Office Numbers: American Money


Jan 19
// Nick Valdez
Well, Selma was obliterated during the MLK holiday weekend. I don't like it as much as some folks, but...that doesn't seem right. Instead, American Sniper made over $90 million dollars. A film that actively, and unironically,...

Box Office Numbers: Taken Too Far


Jan 12
// Nick Valdez
Wow, folks really like them some Taken. Even if it's the third film in the franchise and Neeson is way too old to be doing any of this, it still rakes in quite a large sum. Making over $40 million last weekend, it blew everyt...

The Interview grossed $31 million on VOD despite piracy


Jan 09
// Nick Valdez
When Sony released The Interview on most video demand services but its own, it was promptly pirated nearly 100 million times. At first it seemed like this news would only deter studios from simultaneous theatrical and VOD rel...

Box Office Numbers: First Weekend of 2015


Jan 05

So folks really like The Hobbit, huh? Crossing the $200 million mark domestically and $700 worldwide this past holiday weekend, lots of people are paying to see the CG wonderland. Naturally it took the top spot at the box off...

Box Office Numbers: Last Weekend of 2014


Dec 29
// Nick Valdez
With so many options over the holiday weekend, I'd figured something would knock The Hobbit 3 off the top spot. Still, Battle of the Five Armies still made $41 million dollars. And while Angelina Jolie's Unbroken came close, ...

Box Office Numbers: Thus Saith the Lord


Dec 15

Although the final product turned out to be less than stellar (even putting a man to sleep), Ridley Scott's latest "epic," Exodus: Gods and Kings won over a quiet pre-holiday weekend with $24 million. Mockingjay- Part 1 came ...

For the third (?) week in a row, Mockingjay- Part 1 has taken the top box office spot (with $22 million) as it's still burning for you. The Penguins hold their own with $10 million, and Horrible Bosses 2 surprisingly rounds o...

Nov 24

Holy sh*t you all. When you watch as many movies as I do, you totally forget how popular some of them are. Completely obliterating every other film for the past few weeks, Mockingjay- Part 1 earned $123 million dollars. Holy ...

Box Office Numbers: Dumb Ways to Die


Nov 17
// Nick Valdez
It seems Dumb and Dumber To performed better than I expected despite it not being very good. Taking first place with $38 million, it seems curiosity over the twenty years in development sequel won the day. Big Hero 6 took sec...

So over the weekend I heard someone refer to the plump robot star of Big Hero 6, Baymax as "Big Macs" and haven't stopped laughing since. Wish I heard the rest of the conversation for context, but it was something along the l...

Since it was the weekend before Halloween and everyone's in a mood to watch a scary movie, and there wasn't a better option than Ouija available, "Weegee" took the top spot at the box office with $20 million in actual mo...
