Posted July 30, 2017 by Mitch Salem

  OPENINGS:  Word of mouth caught up with THE EMOJI MOVIE (Columbia/Sony) on Saturday, with a 14% drop (by comparison, Captain Underpants rose 11% on its 2d day of release, and last year’s Angry Birds Movie jumped 47%), but a $25.7M weekend is still good money for a movie no one seems to like.  (The […]

Behind the US/Worldwide Holiday Weekend Box Office – 1/4/15

Posted January 4, 2015 by Mitch Salem

  OPENING:  THE WOMAN IN BLACK 2:  ANGEL OF DEATH (Relativity) fell to 4th place for the weekend, as expected, after a strong opening day.  Still, a $15.1M haul for the cheap thriller isn’t at all bad, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see a Woman in Black 3 come along in a year or […]

Posted January 7, 2018 by Mitch Salem

  OPENINGS:  By horror movie standards, INSIDIOUS: THE LAST KEY (Blumhouse/Universal) didn’t collapse on Saturday (down 13%), and that propelled it to a very solid $29.3M weekend, which among horror product in that first-weekend-in-January slot puts it behind only The Devil Inside‘s $33.7M (by way of comparison, that one fell 30% on its Saturday).  Last […]

Behind the Weekend Box Office – 3/23/14

Posted March 23, 2014 by Mitch Salem

  OPENINGS:  DIVERGENT (Summit/Lionsgate) had an unusual trajectory for a YA movie, with a relatively unimpressive start but then much less of a Saturday drop than others in its genre.  The result was a $56M weekend (the number may tick down when adjusted figures are released tomorrow, considering the aggressive estimate of a 31% Sunday […]
