Box Office Numbers: Insurgency, Schmensurgency

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...

Box Office Numbers: Mr. Roboto

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

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...

Box Office Numbers: Laters, Baby

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

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

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...

Box Office Numbers: American Boy

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

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

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...

Box Office Numbers: First Weekend of 2015

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

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: Hobbitual

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...

Box Office Numbers: Thus Saith the Lord

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 ...

Box Office Numbers: Burnin For You

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...

Box Office Numbers: Star Turkeys

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....

Box Office Numbers: This Girl is Still On Fire

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

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...

Box Office Numbers: Big Macs

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...

Box Office Numbers: Bored Games

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...

Box Office Numbers: It's Weegee Time

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...
