Of course no one saw anything this weekend

Well this week has been a roller coaster of emotions, hasn't it? What started off last week as a problem that very few of us believed we were going to deal with has progressed to people rightfully instituting a self-quarantine, social dista...

Onward's box office shows the antipathy towards the film

The last two movies Pixar released broke box office records for animated films, which says something about how unexcited people were for their latest outing, Onward. The movie only netted $40 million of the weekend, which was on the very lo...

Sonic the Hedgehog cleans up the box office this weekend

Who would have thought that Sonic the Hedgehog would be a mega-hit? I mean, Paramount probably did, but initial reaction to that first trailer was incredibly negative. Did the redesign really help smooth things over that much? If the number...

Birds of Prey fails to take off at the box office

I'm pretty certain that folks over at Warner Bros. are none too pleased about the recent performance of their latest DCEU vehicle, Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), also known as just Birds of Prey. The m...

The Rhythm Section flops harder than any movie ever has

Super Bowl weekend is never a good weekend for movies. People are basically staying at home waiting for the big game to happen or out buying copious amounts of cheap beer and nachos. This year was much the same, though now it has an inglori...

Rise of the Skywalker drops hard while others jump up

To start, lets be clear about one thing: just like every other Star Wars movie The Rise of Skywalker made a lot of money. It had a stellar Christmas week and even broke some records. However, its second weekend saw a hard drop of 59 percent...

Rise of the Skywalker makes a lot but not enough

So Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker had the third best December weekend ever pulling in $175.5 million. That's nothing to scoff at at all. Disney, who was predicting some low numbers at $165 million is probably not going to scoff at th...

Jumanji's box office takes it to the next level

It still feels like the Jumanji films being smash hit sis some kind of fluke. Films based on board games aren't supposed to be this fun and enjoyable and run away with the box office but with the stellar $60.1 million opening of Jumanji: Th...

Thanksgiving makes everyone a winner at the box office

It was a good extended holiday weekend across the board as both Disney and independent movies came to feast at the box office. The big winner, as they always are, is Disney, who had Frozen 2 bring them both a three and five day Thanksg...

No one is surprised: Frozen 2 breaks records, makes money

If you had told me when Frozen 2 was announced that it was going to break some box office records and make a lot of money, I would have agreed with you completely because I'm not an idiot. And Frozen 2 did indeed do those things. ...

Joker reclaims the number one spot on a dead weekend

Joker has already claimed the best global box office for an R-rated film ever but it wanted one last number one weekend before it (probably) begins its slow fall out of the top ten given the slate of films beginning to land in the buil...

Maleficent dethrones Joker at the top of the box office

After two weeks atop the domestic box office, it looks like Joker has finally been beaten. It was only a matter of time before the divisive feature was usurped as the number #1 movie in America, but understandably, it lost to a new Dis...

Joker gets the last laugh with massive box office

There might be plenty of debate over the quality and messaging of Joker but one thing is clear: it's a massive hit. The film pulled in $93.5 million over the weekend. That gives it the biggest opening ever for an October film and the f...

Abominable makes Universal the leader in weekend number ones

This might come as a surprise to anyone who glances at box office but it is not Disney who has the most number one openings of the year. No, as of this weekend, with Abominable opening at number one with $20.85 million, Universal now h...

Downton Abbey dominates as Rambo: Last Blood bleeds

September has always been a fairly uneventful time of year for a reason. It's right smack dab in between the end of the summer movie season and right before the Oscar hopefuls come out, so there's not really much to talk about. We're just i...

Good Boys does good, everything else flops

It's good to see risky films do well. Good Boys is an R-rated comedy starring pre-teens that could have completely whiffed but the strong reviews seem to have brought in the audience as it out performed expectations and pulled in $21 m...

Disney's Toy Story 4 tops $1 billion gross

For a sequel no one really expected to happen, Toy Story 4 did incredible at the box office. The fourth installment did so well, in fact, that it just grossed $1 billion worldwide as of this week. This continues to be a trend this year for ...

Hobbs & Shaw opening is not as big as The Rock's biceps

It wasn't a bad opening at all for Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw as the movie pulled in $60.8 million domestically and $180 million globally. That puts the box office squarely in expectations for the domestic and highly...

Disney is the big winner this weekend, and every weekend

If you had to take a wild guess at which company made the most money every weekend at the theaters it wouldn't make much sense to guess anyone but Disney. Even when they don't open number one, as they did this weekend with The Lion King&nbs...

Spider-Man: Far From Home swings into number one again

It was another good week for Disney at the box office, though, the company doesn't really have bad weeks. They held firm in the top two positions this week with Spider-Man: Far From Home coming in number one at $45.3 million and Toy St...

Spider-Man: Far From Home sets holiday records

Spider-Man: Far From Home came in second ever on July 4th, but over the weekend it made up the loss and delivered the largest six-day opening ever with $185 million. Six day openings aren't actually all the common so Spidey didn't have...

Not even Toy Story could break the summer's sequel slump

Look, Toy Story 4 did not flop at all. It pulled in $118 million over the weekend, making it the most successful opening of the franchise and the third largest opening weekend of the year. It's a hit, but... it's nowhere near what Disn...

Godzilla stomps the box office but not as hard as he could

While the amount of monsters in Legendary's burgeoning Godzilla franchise may be growing the box office returns seem to be dwindling. While Godzilla: King of the Monsters won the weekend with a domestic pull of $49 million it came in w...
