Sony’s unstoppable JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE resumed the #1 spot over the sluggish Super Bowl weekend. Adding another $11 million for a $350 million domestic total ($855 million worldwide with Japan still to go), the movie is now the company’s third highest grossing movie ever. Speaking of word-of-mouth hits, THE GREATEST SHOWMAN continued to […]

Delayed by a year due to a production injury suffered by star Dylan O’Brien, MAZE RUNNER: THE DEATH CURE seems a bit out of date in 2018 as the YA (young adult) dystopian future movie cycle seems to have finally run its course. However, audiences were still interested and the film knocked JUMANI out of […]

Two of this weekend’s newcomers performed above expectations, but that was not enough to knock JUMANJI out of the #1 slot for its third straight weekend. It is now Sony’s 5th highest grossing movie ever (the other four all have SPIDER-MAN in the title). Action movies are a January staple, but ones opening this time […]

    JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE retained the number slot this weekend. STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI may be the leader of the Christmas pack, but Sony’s JUMANJI reboot has been the real surprise, finding favor with both critics and audiences, and likely starting a new franchise for the studio. The picture also just […]

JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE has not matched the numbers generated by STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI, but it has easily proven to be the Christmas season’s second biggest success. This weekend, it once again moved past JEDI in the box office standings, earning the #1 spot with $36 million. That’s a drop of only […]

  The Christmas holidays proceeded more or less along expectations, though the negative rumblings among STAR WARS fans over THE LAST JEDI took a greater toll than expected. The Disney feature plunged 69% in weekend 2, followed by a more manageable 26% drop in weekend 3. While no one’s idea of a flop, the film […]

The latest entry in the STAR WARS saga is finally here and the fans were certainly ready for it. After an incredible $45 million gross from preview screenings on Thursday, the film went on to pull in $220 million, which places it second to only STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS as the highest opening weekend […]

      Pixar’s COCO retained the #1 spot for the third weekend in a row. Of course, this was not a surprise given that there was only one new wide release and it was not widely publicized. That lack of new competition will change in a big way during the next frame when STAR […]

The majors offered up no new wide releases this weekend, which left plenty of room for the remaining films to draw more patrons. Pixar/Disney’s COCO repeated in the #1 spot, declining only 49% for a second frame take of $26.1 million. Warner’s JUSTICE LEAGUE continued to perform below expectations, dropping 60% for $16.5 million and […]

  The Christmas movie season is already underway even though it isn’t even December until tomorrow. You may have already seen THOR: RAGNAROK, JUSTICE LEAGUE, or COCO, but they are just the start of a very packed schedule over the coming weeks. Here is a quick look at just a few of the cinematic treats […]
