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...

The Interview grossed $31 million on VOD despite piracy

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

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...

Box Office Numbers: Tanks on Tanks on Tanks

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...

Box Office Numbers: Ay Gurl

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...

Box Office Numbers: Equals Zero

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...

Box Office Numbers: Runaway

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...

Box Office Numbers: Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap

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...

Box Office Numbers: Wake Me Up When September Ends

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...

Box Office Numbers: Summertime Sadness

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...
