  1. Fox's 'Alita' Leads Worst President's Day Weekend in 15 Years
    The three-day President's Day weekend last year saw the top twelve gross over $270 million, the bulk of which was due to the over $202 million three-day opening for Black Panther, accounting for nearly 74% of the combined top twelve gross. This year didn't have such a monster release, and while expectations were muted, the top twelve's combined $109.1 million makes for the worst three-day President's Day weekend since 2004. Leading the charge was Fox's Alita: Battle Angel, delivering $...
  2. 'Alita', 'Happy Death Day 2' and 'Isn't It Romantic' Debut Over President's Day Weekend
    SATURDAY AM UPDATE: With an estimated $7.5 million, Fox's Alita: Battle Angel is well on its way to a #1 finish over the three and four-day weekend. The film brought in nearly $9 million on its opening day and is now looking at a $24+ million three-day gross and a $28-29 million four-day, which would give the film an overall #37+ million five-day performance. The film received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. Meanwhile, Warner Bros.'s release of New Line's Isn't...
  3. 'LEGO Movie 2' Debuts with Weaker Than Expected, $34M Opening
  4. 'LEGO Movie 2' and 'What Men Want' To Lead Weekend Newcomers
    SATURDAY AM UPDATE: It's looking like a much weaker weekend than expected, thanks mostly to a severe underperformance from WB's The LEGO Movie 2, which brought in an estimated $8.5 million on Friday, which included $2.1 million in preview grosses, as the film is now looking at a three-day around $30+ million. This would put the film's debut more than -50% off the first film's debut. Paramount's release of What Men Want is performing mostly as expected, bringing in an estimated $6.6 mill...
  5. January 2019 Gets the New Year Off to a Slow Start
    The new year got off to a bit of a slow start with January 2019 delivering $812.4 million in calendar grosses, ranking as the 11th best January of all-time, -15.5% behind last year. Notable is the absence of a new Star Wars film carrying over from a December release, something the last three Januarys all took advantage of, and this year's crop of Oscar nominees didn't provide a late year release that could match the buzz generated from films such as American Sniper, The Revenant or Hidden ...
  6. 'Glass' Threepeats at #1 Over Dismal Super Bowl Weekend
    It was an incredibly soft start to the February box office with the top 12 grossing just a combined $55.4 million. You'd have to go back to the first weekend in September 2017 to find a worse performance from the top twelve films. The top of the box office was a repeat from the last three weekends with Glass taking the top spot while Sony's Miss Bala debuted in third place. Overall, the weekend is expected to be the worst Super Bowl weekend at the box office since 2000 when Destination Film...
  7. 'Glass' Looks to Threepeat Over Soft Super Bowl Weekend
    SATURDAY AM UPDATE: The weekend is playing out mostly as expected, with Universal's Glass landing the top spot while STX's The Upside finishes in a close second. Sony's Miss Bala is looking at a soft, $6-7 million debut following an estimated $2.7 million on Friday, finishing the weekend in third position. Additionally, WB's They Shall Not Grow Old brought in an estimated $880k on Friday, which includes an undisclosed amount from Thursday previews, and is currently expected to land at t...
  8. A Look Back at 2018's Record Year at the Domestic Box Office
    December 2018 closed out a record year at the domestic box office, and while it was only the fourth largest December of all-time, it was the first December in four years to not feature a new Star Wars release. Considering Star Wars: The Force Awakens accounted for as much as 50% of December 2015's grosses and The Last Jedi made up 39% of last year's record performance for the month, December 2018's $1.068 billion in calendar grosses is an impressive performance with Warner Bros.'s global se...
  9. 'Glass' Repeats Atop the Weekend Box Office While New Releases Struggle
    The weekend turned out a bit better than expected with Universal's Glass holding on to the top spot with an estimated $19 million on its way to a $100+ million domestic run, though the weekend's newcomers in Fox's The Kid Who Would be King and Serenity struggled. Meanwhile this year's crop of Oscar nominees saw Green Book re-enter the top ten following its five nominations while The Favourite, Bohemian Rhapsody and A Star is Born all improved compared to last weekend. Finishing with an ...
  10. 'Glass' Set for Second Weekend at #1 as Oscar Nominees Expand
    SATURDAY AM UPDATE: It's looking to be a rather soft weekend overall with Universal's Glass delivering an estimated $4.9 million on Friday, heading toward a $16+ million three-day, signaling a -60% drop from last weekend. Meanwhile, the weekend's newcomers are crashing with Fox's The Kid Who Would be King debuting with an estimated $1.7 million on Friday, looking at a $6.5-7 million debut. Aviron's Serenity is struggling even more, bringing in just $1.6 million on Friday (including an u...
