Behind the US/Worldwide Weekend Box Office – 5.21.2017

  OPENINGS:  ALIEN: COVENANT (TSG/20th) slumped almost as badly on its 2d day of release as the unpopular Prometheus (22% vs 25%), and the result was a lackluster $36M weekend in the US–and even that number includes...

Behind the US/Worldwide Weekend Box Office – 10/19/14

  OPENINGS:  The $23.5M opening for FURY (QED/Columbia/Sony) puts it at risk of being passed next weekend by the low-grade Keanu Reeves vehicle John Wick.  Fury has the distinction of being the lowest-grossing movie to o...

EARLY WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Strong Saturday for “No Good Deed,” “Dolphin Tale 2″” and “The Drop”

  NO GOOD DEED (Screen Gems/Sony) held better than expected on its 2d day of release and better than Obsessed did in 2009, and that guarantees the Idris Elba/Taraji P. Henson thriller the weekend win.  Based on preliminar...

Behind the Labor Day Weekend US/Worldwide Box Office – 8/31/14

  OPENINGS:  AS ABOVE/SO BELOW (Universal) and THE NOVEMBER MAN (Relativity) are both quietly making their way to oblivion with $8.3 and $7.7M weekends (each may add $1.5-2M on Monday).  November Man, with its older aud...

Behind the US/Worldwide Weekend Box Office – 8/24/14

  OPENINGS:  IF I STAY (Warners/MGM) was the best of a weak trio, opening with $16.4M and with an 18% drop on Saturday that indicated moderate front-loading.  It should reach a fair $40-50M US total, which could get it t...
