The Official Box Office Thread

All the dirt. All the top secret stuff. Anything that has to do with the process of getting us to sit and watch something projected on the big screen.

ya - it's just like you said - munich started off in only a couple of theatres - has been gradually increasing over the last couple of weeks - i think it actually had one of the best per theatre averages though (just behind Brokeback) out of all films in the top 10/20 - either way - cheaper will be done very soon - and i believe munich will keep going for a little while - i don't think it even goes wide for a few weeks yet...

Surprised Cheaper has lasted this long - but I hope you are right. I thought Munich was up there with Speilberg's best, and that ain't too shabby....

Somehow Munich to me doesn't fit with the "end of the year winding down holiday season" release. Same thing Hostel and Wolf Creek. Where are good/decent horror movies in October when I really want to see them??

Yeah, that's just plain old piss lousy planning. Somehow "Munich" just doesn't scream Christmas entertainment to me either. Or Hannukah. Or Kwaanza. Dealers choice...

so - another new weekend is upon us - and apparentely for you americans it's the MLK weekend - so there's one extra day added (is it monday - i bet it's monday) - 4 new movies opening:
1) Glory Road (aka - Remember the Night Lights of Coach Carter)
2) Last Holiday (Queen Latifah takes over for Alec Guiness in this remake of the 1950's film)
3) Hoodwinked (CGI animated film with anne Hathaway - this is the one she shows her tits in right...?)
4) Tristan and Isolde (because - apparentely - before romeo and juliet - there was this dude Tristan, and some girl whose name he can't pronounce)

plus there's still Hostel - without much competition - but horror movies do usually drop quite a bit in their 2nd session (like me during sex)
and narnia and kong (2 small independent films that will hopefully FINALLY find an audience)...

read more about it here

so whaddya guys think?

I think it will be:
1. Narnia
2. Kong
3. Hostel

I just don't see any of the four films coming out getting big draws. Shit, I haven't even seen a trailer for hoodwinked.

Don't forget that Brokeback Mountain continues to expand, and should be a factor.

I'll carve my weekend prediction here, influenced by BO Mojo's Friday estimate:

1. Glory Road
2. Hostel (I think it'll be close)
3. Last Holiday

(posted late Saturday night local time, whatever GMT leads you to believe)

Munich don't seem to be getting much of an audience. I know I'm beginning to ignore BO results and awards and stuff, so I won't let any of that shit influence my expectations.

Nah, didn't read it. What was it about?

Also Munich's on about 1700 theatres. Does it expand more? I think not. As small an audience as Spielberg was expecting, I don't think he wanted his film to fail to profit, which unless this film holds on extreeemely well, I dunno if it will profit or not. $70 million is far away right now.

Wow...I thought Hostel was getting good enough word of mouth to keep it afloat longer. Guess not?

And where did Hoodwinked come from? I can't be the only one who completely underestimated that one's appeal.

Hostel's performing like most other horror movies perform - majority of the fans go see it the first weekend - so it does suffer a pretty big drop in the sophmore frame - noyhing really too unusual - for a film that was made for like only 4.5 mill from what i recall - or something like that - it's already made a nice profit...

hoodwinked actually looks kinda funny - in some parts - and for some reason kids seem to love anne hathaway - both princess diaries were big - and i think ella enchanted did not too bad - odd - i wonder if it's the couple of reasons why internet geeks love her... :oops:

Hoodwinked = borderline quality dog food.

If my five year old daughter hadn't wanted to see it, I never would have. There are better things to do with 90 minutes....glueing toe nail clippings onto your neighbors door knob, or performing plastic surgery on your girlfriends cat using only a soldering iron & rubber cement.... Another weak attempt to cop from Shrek & Nemo.

Oh BTW, there was a pretty full house when my daughter forced me, sober & wide awake ( and that aint right) to see HOODWINKED. It may track surprising ly well, although I live in an area with a high amount of morons, rubes, boobs, hicks & yokels, so just because there were a fairly large number of chuckleheads at the showing I saw, maybe no one else is going.

Yeah, Sure. Watch Hoodwinked break the top three.

Hoodwinked kinda came out of nowhere - when friday night's numbers were in - it looked like it would only get maybe 3rd or 4th place - at the most - then it suddenly had a huge increase on saturday and sunday and put up a great fight for first - and it made it - barely...

Makes sense - Saturday & Sunday are when most of us parent-types drag the younglings out. Sometimes it seems like an interminable wait to find something the five year old can see...and almost all of the family groups I saw were piling into Hoodwinked ( I was actively trying to get people going to see Cheaper by the Dozen to go into a different theatre...ANY theatre ( well, except Hostel. Kinda low on the family viewing radar, that one).

Weekend estimates are in.

Underworld was the big movie this week, of course. Hoodwinked is holding on strong. Brokeback Mountain is posting gains and is already a sleeper hit. If it gets Oscar noms, it could pass $80 million. It could pass $100 million if it wins.

What I find interesting is how fast Rent and The Producers fell. Are people tired of musicals, or just mediocre ones? Moulin Rouge, Chicago, and The Phantom of the Opera all did okay or better, but Rent and The Producers pretty much bombed. Too bad, because I can enjoy a good musical every now and then.

Jeez, $28 mil for Big Momma even. My money was on Nanny McPhee to coast to first this week. She got stomped on!

Nobody wants to pay money to see a recruitment film; Annapolis' opening was predictable.

Didn't Hoodwinked cost a mere $15-20 million to make? That's quite a nice total the Weinsteins are starting to accumulate. I don't personally know anyone who's seen it yet.

Wow, in SIX WEEKS, The New World couldn't even raise $8 MILLION? And it cost $30 mill? Yikes...

okay - sorry i'm a day late on this - i know how worried and distraught all of you were - but this weekend might be a little more interesting...

will harrison ford reclaim his #1 status at the box office again after more than 5 and a half years away from it... well - could be - Firewall opens this weekend - and while it does not look like a comeback movie for him (yet) it does look more "cropwd-pleasing" than Hollywood Homicide and K-19...

also opening this weekend is the (Wretched(?)) Pink Panther remake - after an extremely long delay, Curious George is there as well - and - of course - Death cuts it's vacation short again and delivers Final Destination 3...

soooo - harrison ford' return to theatres was pretty much the same as the last 2 movies he released in theatres - meh...
he got his box office ass kicked by steve martin doing his best impression of somebody trying to make peter sellers roll over in his grave, a bunch of no-names being killed in fun elaborate ways, and a curious little monkey who gets dragged from the jungle to modern civilization who not once masturbates or tosses feces at people...

Thanks for the update, Havoc...fucking Pink Panther...I did not want to believe this would finish #1....

I'll pick up Curious George's slack. If I go see Pink Panther, I promise to masturbate at Beyonce, then toss feces at the screen.

ok... another weekend upon us - took a couple of weekends off - wasn't much happening - except last week's surprise(?) #1 film Madea's Family Reunion - with just over 30 mill... not too much of a surprise seeing as how a year ago Tyler Perry's Diary of a Mad Black Woman surprised everyone at #1..and this was just more of that... but enough of living in the past... the weekend we've all been waiting - a weekend - that takes place in a world you won't understand - the weekend of UltraViolet is upon us... Kurt Wimmer's folow-up to Equilibrium and Milla's follow-up to some meh "zombie" flicks...

but - there is some competition to be had... Bruno returns to theatres as well with a pg-13 action thriller - 16 blocks - co-starring Mos Def and directed by richard donner...

dave chappelle's block party - should interest the fans of chappelle to see something new by him...

and the teen mermaid comedy Aquaf@... i mean Aquamarine...

So do you think ultraviolet will be no. 1?....

It's a tough call. I think 16 blocks will not do that great, and Chapelle is only on 1000 screens.

i think 16 blocks might edge out the victory - but you never know -if enough younglins decide to check out ultraviolet - like with underworld sequel and what-not - could be a tough race... you never know...

I have to believe that Ultraviolet will show up at #1...teens will go see just about anything these days...and I believe most of them will be pleasantly surprised since they probably have never seen equilibrium...but I don't think 16 blocks stands a chance at getting to #1.

sooo....bit of a surprise this weekend - and not just that hardly anybody went to the theatres - but also for the fact that Madea's Family Reunion held onto #1... even though it dropped almost 60% it's 2nd weekend... 16 blocks limped into 2nd...and the majority of other new releases seemed to forget that they actually got released this weekend...

You're telling me...what a lame weekend at the BO...but this weekend we have The Hills Have Eyes...Shaggy Dog....and Failure to Launch all opening up in 2,500+ theatres...

I am hoping THe Hills Have Eyes gets the top spot, but Failure to Launch might take it.

ya - hopefully Hills continues the successful horror film trend of late...and with what i've been hearing/reading - this is actually a really great horror film - so that would be even better... i mean if the fucking Fog could open at #1 when it was released - then Hills should at least do that...but i don't know about a horro film at this time of year - we've had a bunch...but you never know... the way things have been going - i wouldn't be surprised if the fucking Shaggy Dog pulled it off...

I hear that...I mean if Madea's Family Reunion can get two weeks...anything can happen.

I really hope fans come out to support The Hills Have Eyes...I mean people bitch about no hard R horror movies anymore...and all signs point to this being just that. If it got #1 then maybe studios will stop shying away from the R.

Madea's Family Reunion ??
Slow weekend at the Box Office, to be certain.
I've not heard one good, or even positive review of MFR.
It pulled in, what, 13 mill?
Weak.
Even weaker?
Bruce Willis's latest falling to MFR.
Ouch.

The Hills Have Eyes should easily put an end to MFR's stay at the top of the Box Office.
At least, it better.
