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...

Box Office Numbers: Football in the Groin

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...

Box Office Numbers: T.M.N.T.R.E.A.M

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,...

Box Office Numbers: Turtle Power

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...

Box Office Numbers: Galaxian

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...

Box Office Numbers: You Love Lucy

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...

Box Office Numbers: #CrimeDeux

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 ...

Box Office Numbers: I Love You, Dr. Zaius!

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...

Box Office Numbers: Rollout

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....

Box Office Numbers: Reboots in Disguise

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...

Box Office Numbers: Twosies

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...

Box Office Numbers: All You Need is Third Place

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 ...

Box Office Numbers: Un-Jolievable

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 ...

Box Office Numbers: Mays of Future Past

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...
