Zombies Lead The Box Office With ‘Warm Bodies’

In: Movies, Patrick

This weekend, the romance/drama/horror flick, Warm Bodies opened in theatres with an estimated $20 million, taking the top spot. I had included the film in my list of 5 Movies To See This February and it looks like many people had it on their list as well. The film stars Nicholas Hoult as an unusual zombie named R (because he can’t remember his full name) who saves Julie (Teresa Palmer) from an attack and form a relationship that sets in motion a sequence of events that might transform the entire lifeless world.

Also opening in theatres this weekend was an action flick called Bullet To The Head, starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Momoa, and Christian Slater. Just as fellow former action star Arnold Schwarzenegger struggled with the opening of The Last Stand, Stallone’s movie is only bringing in an estimated $4.6 million in its opening weekend and will, like other films, take a hit with the Super Bowl this evening.

Find out how the other films did and see who came in second and third in the Top 10 list below. Did any of you watch Warm Bodies or Bullet To The Head? If so, share your thoughts on the films in the comments.

‘Mama’ Terrorizes The Box Office This Weekend

In: Movies, Patrick

This weekend, Mama opened in theaters and took the top spot at the box office with $28.1 million. The Guillermo del Toro-produced movie is based on Muschietti’s 2008 Spanish-language short film of the same name and stars Jessica Chastain. It looks incredibly scary. It’s a big weekend for Chastain because she also stars in Zero Dark Thirty, which was number two at the box office this weekend with $17.6 million. Since it’s opening, the film has brought in just under $56 million.

Two other films opened in theaters for wide release this weekend, but they didn’t do all that well. The first was Broken City starring Mark Wahlberg which came in fifth place with an underwhelming opening weekend of $9 million. The film is Wahlberg’s worst movie opening in years. Even worse was Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s movie comeback attempt, The Last Stand. The movie came in tenth place and only brought in $6.3 million.

Find out how the rest of the films did and which film is at almost $300 million since it opened in the Top 10 list below.

Three new movies opened in theaters this weekend, but it was Zero Dark Thirty that came out on top at the box office. The film is a chronicle of the decade-long hunt for al-Qaeda terrorist leader Osama bin Laden after the September 2001 attacks, and his death at the hands of the Navy S.E.A.L. Team 6 in May, 2011. The film has brought in a total of $29.4 million – not bad for it’s opening weekend!

Also opening this weekend was a film that was much more on the lighter side and that was A Haunted House. Despite the name, it’s actually a parody film from Marlon Wayans, making fun of the Paranormal Activity franchise, among other spooky films. The movie came in second place this weekend and brought in an estimated $18.8 million.

Lastly, Gangster Squad opened this weekend and came in third place with an estimated $16.7 million. The film stars Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn and Emma Stone. Check out how the other films did this weekend and share your thoughts in the comments on any of the aforementioned films if you happened to have checked any of them out this weekend.

‘Texas Chainsaw 3D’ Tops Box Office

In: Movies, Patrick

This weekend, Texas Chainsaw 3D opened in theatres and to my surprise, the horror franchise relaunch ended up taking the top spot with an estimated $23 million. January is apparently a good time for horror movie releases and this falls in line with that theory. In the coming weeks, this movie will face competition against Mama (which looks SO scary) and A Haunted House, which is a Paranormal Activity parody.

Here’s the premise of the film: “Texas Chainsaw 3D continues the legendary story of the homicidal Sawyer family, picking up where Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic left off in Newt, Texas, where for decades people went missing without a trace. Decades later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she never knew she had. After embarking on a road trip with friends to uncover her roots, she finds she is the sole owner of a lavish, isolated Victorian mansion. But her newfound wealth comes at a price as she stumbles upon a horror that awaits her in the mansion’s dank cellars.

Coming in second place was Django Unchained with an estimated $20.08 million. I haven’t yet seen the movie but I’ve heard it’s pretty gory, but that it has that Tarantino humor mixed in to lighten things up. Have any of you seen it?

Les Miserables Lands In Third Place At Box Office

In: Donovan, Movies

Despite achieving the second best Christmas Day opening in history, Les Miserables had to settle for the bronze medal at the box office this weekend. The musical has amassed a sturdy $64 million since its opening. Even in third place, the Victor Hugo adaption has the best start for any musical. With the awards season kicking into high gear in the next few weeks, it’s numbers will undoubtedly continue to rise.

For the third week in a row, The Hobbit reigned supreme. Nabbing another $32 million, the Warner Bros. flick crashed through the $200 million barrier. With it’s small decline from last week’s numbers, the film has a good chance of reaching the $300 million milestone.

Landing in between Les Miserables and The Hobbit, is Quentin Tarantino’s latest- Django Unchained. The slave Western film is the best debut of Tarantino’s career with $30 million and $64 million since it’s Christmas Day launch. It’s projected to topple the director’s best film to date- Inglorious Basterds which notched $120.5 during its run. In other box office news, Skyfall crossed over $1 billion worldwide making it the 14th highest-grossing film. Check out the rest of this week’s Top 10 below.

So many movies are coming out this month and so many movie trailers have debuted as of late – it’s that time of year! For the second week in a row, The Hobbit has dominated the box office. With an additional $36.7 million estimated from this weekend, the film has now reached a total of just under $150 million.

Tom Cruise’s new movie, Jack Reacher opened this weekend and came in second with an estimated $15.6 million. In the film, Cruise plays a homicide investigator who delves deeper into a case involving a trained military sniper who shot five random victims. Given the subject matter, it’s understandable as to why the film’s premiere in theatres was delayed by a week after the devastating school shooting in Connecticut.

Another newbie this weekend was the This Is 40 comedy, starring Paul Rudd, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Mann, and more. The R-Rated comedy serves as somewhat of a sequel to Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up movie.

Also opening within the past week were The Guilt Trip (check out Matt’s movie review here) and Monsters, Inc. 3D. See how these two films did and what other movies make up this weekend’s top 10 list below.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey absolutely dominated the box office in this, it’s opening weekend. Homorazzi cast member Matt reviewed the film and he absolutely love it (Check out his review here).

The film is estimated to have brought in almost $84.8 million. With that, the film set a new record for the largest December opening weekend performance on record by topping the $77.21 million debut of 2007′s I Am Legend. That being said, it didn’t set a new record when you adjust for ticket price inflation. In 2003, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King opened with $72.63 million in unadjusted terms, but when you adjust for inflation, it still holds the record with $95.6 million – precious!

Coming in a distant second was Rise Of The Guardians. Check out the list below to see how distant this second place spot was and how the rest of the top 10 films did at the box office this weekend. Also, I’ve included a funny video from Jimmy Kimmel that warns of the side effects of watching the film that was shot at 48 frames per second (double what most films are shot at)

After holding the second place position the past three weekends at the box office, Skyfall has finally managed to lead over The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Skyfall raked in an estimated $10.8 million, bringing it’s total to $261.4 million so far. That’s only slightly behind Twilight which is now at an estimated $268.5 million since it opened in theatres. Rise of The Guardians squeezed in between the two films to take second place this weekend.

The only new film opening in theatres for wide release this weekend was Playing For Keeps, starring Gerard Butler, Jessica Biel, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Dennis Quaid, Uma Thurman, Judy Greer, and Noah Lomax. Despite the big names that make up the cast, the film failed to lure in audiences and only brought in an estimated $6 million, landing in sixth place.
