Godzilla sequel already happening because money

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...

Box Office Numbers: Still King of the Monsters

After a roaring smash through the box office, Godzilla did the Monster Mash all over every film this weekend earning over $93 million dollars, making it Warner Bros' biggest May opening ever. If Matt's review is anything to g...

Box Office Numbers: It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Wow, that was fast. After only a week at the top of the box office (and causing quite a ruckus in our community), The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is now second place to Neighbors, the latest Seth Rogen starring film. Confident as th...

Summer has officially begun folks with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 raking in over $92 million dollars! That's summer blockbuster status, son! From here on out, expect nothing but big films, big reactions (don't forget to add you...

Box Office Numbers: All the Women, Independent

Toppling Captain America: The Winter Soldier's April domination is The Other Woman, a movie that looks like (and turns out to be according to Matt's review) a less fun version of John Tucker Must Die. I don't understand why, ...

Box Office Numbers: Still Livin' in America

For the third week in a row, Captain America: The Winter Soldier claimed the top spot at the box office this weekend with $26 million. Although it's surprising since a whole host of new, mediocre looking films released this p...

Box Office Numbers: Try and Stop Us

For the second week in a row, Captain America: The Winter Soldier takes the top spot at the box office raking in just over $41 million. Coming in at an extremely close second is Rio 2, with $39 million. It nearly took the who...

Box Office Numbers: America...F**k yeah.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier may not be the best movie, but it's a great follow up to The First Avenger and it's going to be especially hard for future Marvel films to top. Given that The Winter Soldier set a new recor...

Box Office Numbers: She's Just a Girl But She's Different

It's been three weeks since I've done one of these posts, and boy do things change. When I last recapped the box office performances Non Stop was making 30 million, and Tyler Perry only had three other movies out. Now Tyler P...

The Grand Budapest Hotel is a record-breaker

Wes Anderson's latest kitsch-fest, The Grand Budapest Hotel, earned over $800,000 in the course of its first limited run. On Friday, the movie opened in four theaters -- two in NYC, two in LA -- earning over $200,000 per thea...

Box Office Numbers: Ron Stoppable

It looks like Jesus couldn't even put a stop to my boy, Liam Neesons (and I'll always refer to him as such because of Key & Peele). Non-Stop took first place (beating out the awesomely strong LEGO Movie) raking in a cool ...

Box Office Numbers: All hails the mighty LEGO

The LEGO Movie didn't face much stiff competition this week, but it still pulled in a whopping amount beating out both new releases and pulling in more money than many films make in their entire run. Looks like word of mouth ...

Box Office Numbers: She's a Brick House

In case you were wondering, not even a robot cop, fairy tale Colin Farrell, or Kevin Hart movie could topple the awesomeness that is The LEGO Movie brick house. It made a mighty mighty $43 million last weekend, beating out th...

Box Office Numbers: Bricks on Bricks on Bricks

It looks like audiences did the right thing and supported the truly awesome film this weekend. While I'll always be sad I missed out on Vampire Academy (and I'm sure it'll be a big hit on home video like Mean Girls), I'm glad...

Box Office Numbers: Ghost Ride the Whip

Ride Along is still in first and has now grossed $93 millions dollars in revenue over its three week stint on the top of the chart. It's January, so this was bound to happen, I suppose. Not even new releases like That Awkward...

Frozen is highest grossing original animated film ever

I don't think anyone would have guessed that Disney would be back on top of the animation world, knocking Pixar down, at the beginning of 2013, but it seems the animation studio finally figured out (with the help of Pixar hea...

Box Office Numbers: Still Ridin'

As expected, Ride Along is still riding along as it claims its second week at the box office. Not even the well advertised I, Frankenstein could topple it as it claims a meager fifth place opening. Other than that, every othe...

Box Office Numbers: I Wanna Take You For A Ride

It's January folks. That means it's time to play catch up on all the movies you missed out on last year (I finally saw Gravity last weekend and I liked it alright) because there's absolutely nothing of value until February 7t...

Box Office Numbers: The Legend of Nopecules

While we were busy talking about some of the best films of 2013, 2014 farted out its worst film, The Legend of Hercules. According to Matt's review, it's absolutely terrible so go watch it if you like train wrecks. Instead, m...

FlixList: Top 10 Worst Grossing Movies of 2013
by Sean Walsh

Since the dawn of time, there have been winners and there have been losers. There's no question about that. Sometimes, the winners deserve to win, like those damnable Colonial upstarts fighting for their freedom during the Revolutionary War. Sometimes, the winners decidedly don't deserve their glory (re: Edison v. Tesla). But the indisputable fact is that if there is to be a winner, there must be a loser.

Every year, hundreds of movies open across the country, across the world, and some will make a killing and others will limp their way through their times in theaters. And every year, for better or worse, there are some losers that lose harder than all the others. Below is the list of the ten worst grossing films of last year*. Some won't surprise you. Some might. Some might anger you. But that's the way of life. For every Iron Man 3, there must be a Movie 43. And that, dear friends, is why I drink.

Box Office Numbers: Last weekend of 2013 y'all

With five or so new movies releasing to theaters on Christmas Day, I had no idea what film would reign supreme. I figured with all of that competition The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug wouldn't snag the top spot again,...

Box Office Numbers: There and back again

Last week I had forgotten to predict a movie would win the weekend, and good thing I didn't because I would've been completely wrong here. I knew The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug had at least another week, but man did...
