Weekend Box Office- May 2-4, 2014

Spider-Man, Spider-Man, yada yada yada. You know how it goes. While Spidey did not beat Captain America: The Winter Soldier’s take last month, it brought in $92 million which is $30 million more than the reboot grossed in its opening weekend two years ago. Sony should feel confident about their future plans with Spider-Man and […]

Weekend Box Office- April 4-6, 2014

I think it is safe to say that Captain America has taken his place behind Iron Man as Marvel’s number two hero. Captain America: The Winter Soldier easily set a new April record with $96.2 million which is $11 million more than Thor: The Dark World opened to last November. The more impressive feat is […]

So far, so good for Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. The biblical (but not biblical) epic took in $44 million to finish first. I am sure the audience was divided between Christians who didn’t know what they were getting into and Aronofsky fans that wanted to see how he could top Jared Leto shooting heroin into a […]

After plenty of attempts to find the new young adult movie franchise like Twilight and The Hunger Games, we finally have a winner (money wise).

Weekend Box Office- March 7-9, 2014

It looks like after seven years the Spartans still hold sway over the box office. The follow-up to 2007’s 300 easily opened at #1 with $45.1 million. Even better was its international gross of $87.8 million meaning the sequel, which only had a budget of $100 million, is in the black after one weekend. Mr. […]

Even Jesus couldn’t take down Liam Neeson this weekend, but seeing as Neeson played Aslan in The Chronicles of Narnia series, we will call it a 1-2 finish for the Lord. There is almost one sure thing in Hollywood; if Neeson has a new action movie opening, it will open at #1. Non-Stop finished with […]

For the third week in a row The LEGO Movie claimed a new set of victims. This time bringing down Bull Durham and Jon Snow. Taking in $31.4 million easily won the weekend for the tiny feet killers.
