    The Box Office Report September 12th to the 14th



    After the worst weekend at the box office in years, five new movies opened in wide release, four of them taking the top four spots at the box office with three of them grossing more than $15 million over the weekend.

    Joel and Ethan Coen had their biggest opening movie ever and their first weekend #1 with Burn After Reading (Focus Features), a dark ensemble comedy featuring George Clooney and Brad Pitt, which grossed an estimated $19.4 million in 2,641 theatres, averaging over $7 thousand per site. Opening wider than any previous Focus Features release, the duo's comedy follow-up to the Oscar-winning No Country for Old Men was helped by solid reviews giving the studio its biggest opening, its highest grossing weekend for a movie, as well as their first #1 movie for a weekend. The Coens' latest shouldn't have a problem making back its production budget of $37 million in its theatrical release.

    Coming in second place, Tyler Perry's The Family That Preys (Lionsgate), the latest drama from the Atlanta media mogul, had the best per-site average of the weekend, grossing $18 million in 2,070 theaters, an average of $8700 per venue. It opened lower than Perry's last two movies, Meet the Browns and Why Did I Get Married?, but higher than Daddy's Little Girls, Perry's previous movie not based on one of his hit stageplays.

    Screen legends Robert De Niro and Al Pacino teamed for the crime thriller Righteous Kill (Overture) which took third place with an estimated $16.5 million in 3,152 theaters, the weekend's widest release. It grossed almost as much its first weekend as 88 Minutes, Pacino's last teaming with director Jon Avnet, grossed in total, as Pacino's fifth-biggest opening movie and De Niro's sixth-biggest live action opening. It's also Overture Films' biggest opening film to date, having paid $10 million to distribute it in the United States, but it still has a long way to go if it wants to make back its reported $60 million budget.

    Diane English's modern update of George Cuckor's The Women (Picturehouse), starring Meg Ryan, Annete Bening and an all-female all-star cast, opened with just over $10 million in nearly 3,000 theaters, continuing the weekend trend by being the biggest opening movie for Picturehouse as well. (It's also the final official release from the distributor created three years ago in a union between New Line and HBO.)

    The Anna Faris comedy vehicle The House Bunny (Sony) held up well despite the release of four new movies, dropping just 22% in its third weekend to take fifth place with $4.3 million with a total gross of $42.1 million.

    It surpassed Ben Stiller's war comedy Tropic Thunder (DreamWorks) and the record-setting Warner Bros. superhero flick The Dark Knight, which took sixth and seventh place with just over $4 million each. Tropic Thunder becomes the 17th movie to cross the $100 million mark this year, while The Dark Knight is sitting pretty with an astounding $518 million after 9 weekends in the Top 10.

    The Nicolas Cage action-thriller Bangkok Dangerous (Lionsgate) experienced one of the biggest position drops in some time, dropping from its #1 spot last weekend to #8 this weekend with a weekend gross of $2.4 million and a total of $12.5 million

    The top 10 was rounded out by the political thriller Traitor (Overture) starring Don Cheadle, and Universal's remake of Death Race both with just over $2 million. The Top 10 grossed $83 million up nearly 39% from the same weekend last year.

    The last wide release, the documentary Proud American (Slowhand Releasing), grossed $135 thousand in 750 theaters, setting a new record for the worst per-theater average for a wide release ever by averaging just $180 per site.

    In limited release, Alan Ball's coming of age film Towelhead (Warner Bros.) grossed $53 thousand in just four theaters in New York and L.A.
    - Burn After Reading getting great reviews. I Want to see this.
    - Great to see Tropic Thunder hit 100 million
    - Batman doing insane numbers still. Awesome.
    - Bangkok Dangerous dropped big, guess Cage might want to reconsider making films elsewhere. The makers claim it's turning a profit, so I guess it was a success either way.
    - House Bunny only cost 25 mill to make. Already crossing 42 million, and sticking. Pretty good showing.
    - Righteous Kill getting real bad reviews. Too bad what a waste. I'll still see it just to see how the chemistry is though.

    The Box Office Report September 19th to the 21st



    Samuel L. Jackson Cops Another #1 Movie

    The ComingSoon.net Box Office Report has been updated with studio estimates for the weekend. Click here for the full box office estimates of the top 12 films and then check back on Monday for the final figures based on actual box office.

    After a weekend with three new movies grossing $15 million, this weekend saw only one and that was Lakeview Terrace, the new thriller from Screen Gems starring Samuel L. Jackson and directed by Neil LaBute, which took in $15.6 million in less than 2,500 theaters, averaging $6.3k per site. It is Jackson's 13th #1 movie as a headlining star since his breakout in Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction almost 14 years ago.

    It also knocked Joel & Ethan Coen's dark comedy Burn After Reading (Focus Features) down to the #2 spot, as it saw a moderate 41% drop with $11.3 million in its second weekend bringing its total gross to $36.4 million.

    In the meantime, Kate Hudson's first starring role in an R-rated movie with the romantic comedy My Best Friend's Girl (Lionsgate), co-starring Dane Cook and Jason Biggs, took in a disappointing $8.3 million, opening in the most theaters for the new wide releases but averaging the least. It was followed closely in fourth place by MGM computer animated family film Igor, featuring the voice of John Cusack, which took in $8 million in 2,339 theaters.

    Two of last week's top movies took major tumbles as both the Robert De Niro-Al Pacino crime-thriller Righteous Kill (Overture) and Tyler Perry's The Family That Preys (Lionsgate) lost over 50% of their opening business, flopping places as Righteous Kill took fifth place with $7.7 million and Perry's movie brought in $7.5 million in sixth place. Both movies have grossed just over $28 million.

    The fourth movie from last week, Diane English's chick flick The Women, dropped to 7th place with $5.3 million, down 48% from its opening weekend with a gross of $19.2 million.

    With the best reviews for the weekend, David Koepp's comedy Ghost Town (DreamWorks), starring Ricky Gervais and Téa Leoni, opened with $5.2 million in 1,505 theaters for 8th place.

    The Top 10 was rounded out by Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight (Warner Bros.) with $2.9 million, and the Anna Faris comedy The House Bunny (Sony) with slightly less. The year's biggest movie (that's Dark Knight) has grossed $522 million after ten weeks in the Top 10, though it will probably be losing many of its IMAX venues on Friday when DreamWorks' Eagle Eye opens.

    Two movies slated to open wide in October received platform releases in New York, L.A. and other cities with Ed Harrris' Western Appaloosa (Warner Bros.) bringing in $258 thousand in 14 theaters while the period drama The Duchess(Paramount Vantage), starring Keira Knightley, grossing $203 thousand in half as many theaters.

    The Top 10 grossed $74.5 million, which is just slightly less than the Top 10 grossed in the same period last year.
    - Lakeview Terrace was awesome just came back from seeing it, and it is worth the money.

    - Burn After Reading is sort of hanging in there. Still don't have much desire to see it.

    - My Best Friend's Girl had pretty terrible numbers, I have no desire to see that shit. Maybe If I was going out with someone who wanted to see it.

    - Pretty excited Eagle Eye comes out this weekend. I'll def be seeing this one.

    Box Office Report September 26th-28th



    Eagle Eye Sets Its Sights on the Top Spot

    September 28, 2008


    The ComingSoon.net Box Office Report has been updated with studio estimates for the weekend. Click here for the full box office estimates of the top 12 films and then check back on Monday for the final figures based on actual box office.

    While the first Presidential election debate between Obama and McCain may have kept some people home on Friday night, the box office was up this weekend from last, thanks to the release of DreamWorks' Eagle Eye, an action-thriller that brought in $29.2 million from 3,500 conventional and IMAX theaters to become the fourth-biggest September opening ever. The movie reunited actor Shia LaBeouf with D.J. Caruso, director of his 2007 sleeper hit Disturbia; while the tech-enhanced thriller is now Caruso's top opener, it only made a little more in its first weekend than LaBeouf's turn in last year's blockbuster Transformers made its first full opening day.

    The reunion of Richard Gere and Diane Lane in the Nicholas Sparks adaptation Nights in Rodanthe (Warner Bros.) grossed $13.6 million its opening weekend in 2,700 theaters for a solid second place. It's both actors' best opening weekend since they were teamed in the 2002 thriller Unfaithful, which opened with $14 million. (We're not counting Jumper for Lane because she only had a cameo in the film.)

    Last week's #1, Screen Gems' thriller Lakeview Terrace starring Samuel L. Jackson dropped 53% in its second weekend, taking third place with $7 million and a total gross of $25.7 million.

    The inspirational drama Fireproof (Samuel Goldwyn) starring Kirk Cameron may have been the weekend's biggest surprise, as it became the biggest opener for the indie distributor, grossing $6.5 million in 839 theaters, scoring the second-highest per-theater average in the Top 10. The movie's amazing opening weekend could be traced back to church groups who pushed advance sales of the spiritual movie, making it the third-highest opening "Christian" movie, not including Disney's "Narnia" films.

    Joel & Ethan Coen's dark comedy Burn After Reading (Focus Features) dropped down to 5th place with $6.2 million and a grand total of $45.5 million after three weeks, putting it slightly ahead of the Oscar-winning bros' 2000 hit O Brother, Where Art Thou? as their second highest-grossing film.

    MGM's G-rated animated comedy Igor, featuring the voice of John Cusack, held up well in its second weekend, bringing in $5.5 million, off just 30% from its opening weekend, to bring its total to $14.3 million.

    The police crime-thriller Righteous Kill (Overture) starring De Niro and Pacino took 7th place with $3.8 million, moving ahead of Lionsgate's R-rated romantic comedy My Best Friend's Girl, co-starring Kate Hudson, Dane Cook and Jason Biggs, which dropped 54% and 5 places to also end up with $3.8 million in its second weekend. Righteous Kill has grossed $34.8 million in three weeks, while My Best Friend's Girl brings its total to $14.5 million after ten days.

    Opening in ninth place, Spike Lee's highly-anticipated war movie Miracle at St. Anna (Touchstone Pictures) grossed just $3.5 million in 1,185 theaters, a weak per-theater average of under $3,000 per site, making it the biggest bomb of the new movies in wide release. Although Lee's biggest movie is reported to have a budget of $45 million, roughly 85% of that coming from European backers.

    Tyler Perry's The Family That Preys (Lionsgate) rounded out the Top 10 with $3.2 million, another large drop from its previous weekend. So far, it's grossed $32.8 million in three weeks, making it doubtful that it will gross the $41 million made by Perry's last film, Meet the Browns.

    Clark Gregg's adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's Choke, starring Samuel Rockwell, opened in 435 theaters, bringing in $1.3 million for a 14th place opening with an average of $3,000 per site. Neil Burger's The Lucky Ones (Roadside Attractions) didn't fare as well, grossing just $208,000 in a similar number of theaters.

    The Top 10 grossed $82.1 million, about $10 million more than the Top 10 made in the same September closing weekend last year.
    - Eagle Eye did pretty decent. Got hammered in reviews. Still think it will make out alright, and I'm interested in seeing this.

    - Lakeview Terrace nose dived bad on it's second week. It will probably stick in there a little longer, but seems to be dying quick.

    - Fireproof opened big time for an independent. I'm interested to catch this one.

    - Burn After Reading took a hit this week. With such big star power it's not doing so hot.

    I saw Quantum of Solace last week, it was an incredibly boring, and mindless action movie.

    Re: Weekend Box Office Sales

    I downloaded Four Christmases, and heard the movie is horrid. The quality of the download also is terrible so I don't think it's even worth viewing until a better quality one comes out.

    Quantum of Solace looks real kickass can't wait to see that come out.
