Behind the US/Worldwide Weekend Box Office – 2.5.17

Posted February 5, 2017 by Mitch Salem

  OPENINGS:  It’s still too soon to gauge whether RINGS (Paramount) can creep its way to breakeven with international help (total production/marketing costs are $75M+), but it’s certainly not performing well enough to justify a continuation of the franchise.  In the US, its $13M weekend estimate is below the $15M opening of the original US […]

Posted January 22, 2017 by Mitch Salem

  OPENINGS:  Things couldn’t have gone better for M.
