Box Office


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...

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...

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,...

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...

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...

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...

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, ...

As expected, The (please let this really be the last one) Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies took over the box office raking in $56 million with its lead in from Wednesday. Since I have very little interest in Lord of the Ring...

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...

Thanks to the Star Wars: The Awakens teaser trailer releasing over the holiday weekend, folks around me have been talking about nothing but that and Black Friday deals. Since I'm still kind of lethargic, I'll get right to it....

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 ...

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...

I've heard some spookily depressing things over the Halloween weekend. First off, I thought folks would see the superior John Wick over Ouija, but I was wrong...DEAD wrong. Secondly, lots of my friends were telling me they th...

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...

Sorry I missed last week's round of Box Office Numbers, folks. I was busy jib jabbering over at New York Comic Con. Good times. During all of that, Dracula Untold and The Judge released to okay numbers, but nothing was able t...

Here's something I didn't expect. Through hype, great actors, and apparently good word of mouth, Gone Girl managed to take the top spot this weekend with $38 million, more than generic horror film Annabelle (which came in clo...

Surpassing all of my predictions, and despite a terribly slow start, Slumptember fished strong with the top box office performer, The Equalizer, raking in $35 million dollars. That may not seem as impressive as films during t...

After several weeks of bland releases, we're now hitting the end of Slumptember with another slew of so-so releases. Although favorites like The Guest and Tusk also hit last week, neither of them earned enough to crack the to...

Surprising absolutely everyone, No Good Deed managed to take the top spot at the box office during a dead weekend. Seriously, if you had to choose between a glistening, shirtless Idris Elba, watching a poorly advertised crime...

Now that Summer's officially over, we've hit that period where new releases just sort of die out until the end of the month for some reason. Maybe it's in anticipation of the Summer films dominating the box office, but the go...

Apparently Summer box office performances are at their worst since 2006. According to Variety, ticket sales are down 15% from last year and although films like Guardians of the Galaxy (which is now the highest grossing film o...

Even with all of the illustrious new options like the sequel to a nine year old movie and, uh, football, it looks like everyone just decided to watch Guardians of the Galaxy again (or stayed at home and watched the big Simpso...

Get the money, turtle turtle shell y'aaaaaaalllllllll. For some reason, folks still wanted to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles last weekend despite having tons of mediocre options at their disposal. Not having seen it myself,...

Knock knock, America was shell shocked. In a semi-surprise, the TMNT movie managed to take the top spot over Guardians of the Galaxy's second week (getting both $65 million smackaroos and a sequel). It'd be interesting to see...

As expected, Guardians of the Galaxy made a ton of money its opening weekend despite one theater showing Rise of the Guardians instead, and no one really knowing what it was to begin with. In typical Marvel fashion, Guardians...

It looks like I bet on the wrong horse. In a neat turn of events, audiences flocked more toward the weird outsider film, Lucy, than the sweating mass of manmeat, Hercules. I'd like to take this time to thank America for being...

While Dawn of the Planet of the Apes took the top spot again this week (making $36 million), I already decided I was going to dedicate this week's Box Office Numbers to #CrimeDay (be sure to enter our Purge contest!). Making ...

You've made the right choice America. Unlike China (whose country allowed Transformers: Age of Extinction to become its highest grossing film ever), you went to see the better Summer film. Plus, it has monkeys who also talk s...

Damn it, China. What happened to you? You used to be cool. This is why we can't have nice things.  [via Variety]

Transformers: Age of Extinction is still making money as it claims the top spot for a second week with $36 million. Not even Tammy, the new, barely comedic Melissa McCarthy film could even dethrone it as it makes $24 million....

Transformers: Age of Extinction is not a very good movie. It's much harder to defend than the rest of the series because it lacks simple things like plot, characters, and proper editing. But hey, Dinobots! But within the depr...

Apparently it really does take two to make a thing go right. Sequels absolutely dominated the box office last weekend. In first place is Think Like A Man Too at $30 million, 22 Jump Street follows closely with $29 million, an...

Some of 'em try to rhyme but they can't rhyme like this, some of 'em try to rhymre but they can't rhyme like this, some of 'em try to rhyme but they can't rhyme like this.  22 Jump Street took first place last weekend, r...

I was really hoping Edge of Tomorrow would win the top spot this weekend so I'd be able to put Lady Gaga lyrics into this post, but sadly that didn't come to pass. Now I'm just left with all of these useless "All You Need is ...

I thought X-Men: Days of Future Past would stay on the top through the end of May, but boy did I not see Maleficent coming (raking in $70 million dollars!). In my favorite performance of the year so far, Angelina Jolie turns ...

With one more week in May left to go, I'm guessing X-Men: Days of Future Past is going to take it home. Raking in $90 million (just a little under Godzilla's performance from last week) over the Memorial Day Weekend, Day...

Because Godzilla made a monstrous amount of money in the box office its opening weekend (over $93 million dollars domestically), naturally talk of a sequel is already underway. At this point, it's not even really news as we a...
