G.I. Joe Blows Away The Competition

In: Donovan, Movies

Looks like the decision to push back G.I. Joe: Retaliation from June 2012 to this weekend was a wise one. The film’s test scores during early screenings were so poor, Paramount decided to rework it. Reportedly, the focus groups complained there wasn’t enough Channing Tatum. The action film was made before Tatum hit a trifecta of hits- The Vow, 21 Jump Street and Magic Mike. Naturally, movie goers were craving more of him. G.I. Joe: Retaliation soldiered into the top spot, piling up $41.2 million over three days and bringing the four-day cume to $51.7 million. It fell short of breaking the Easter record set by Clash of the Titans ($61.2 million) back in 2010.

Also opening this weekend were Tyler Perry’s Temptation and The Host. The steamy thriller debuted in third with $22.3 million. Pretty impressive when you consider Madea was nowhere to be found in the film. Although it tried to capitalize on its Twilight connection, The Host bombed with just over $11 million landing in fifth spot. I’m sure the bad reviews and less-than-riveting trailers helped attribute to the poor showing.

Coming in the runner up slot was The Croods. The animated film continued its successful run, raking in another $26.5 million pushing it past the $200 million mark. Oz the Great and Powerful generated another $11.6 million, bringing its total to $198,278,000. The Wizard of Oz prequel will definitely pass the $200 benchmark in the next couple of days. Check out the rest of the Top 10 below.

This weekend, Oz: The Great And Powerful opened in theaters after tons of promotion and much anticipation from Oz lovers. The film brought in an estimated $80.2 million this weekend which is pretty incredible and I’d say it lives up to it’s name. The film stars James Franco, Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz and has exceeded expectations so far in terms of it’s performance. Fellow cast member Tommy did a movie review for the film and he seemed to think it was just okay, but perhaps that’s just him. Did any of you see it?

Also opening this weekend was a crime thriller called Dead Man Down, starring Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace. The filmed brought in an estimated $5.5 million, landing in fourth place at the box office this weekend.

Opening this weekend in theaters, Jack The Giant Slayer has debuted in first place at the box office with an estimated $28 million. The retelling of the famous Jack & The Beanstalk story was directed by Bryan Singer and although it was in first this weekend, I’m sure they were hoping for more considering how big budget the expensive film is.

Also opening theaters this weekend was 21 & Over, coming in third place with estimated $9 million. The film comes from the writers of The Hangover and based on the trailer, reminds me of a combination of The Hangover and Project X. Coming in fourth place with an estimated $8.03 million was The Last Exorcism Part II, starring Ashley Bell. Certainly an underwhelming opening for the horror sequel.

One film (the one that I finally watched on Saturday) crossed the $100 million mark this weekend. Find out which movie that is and how the rest of the top 10 films did in the list below.

This weekend, Identity Thief reclaimed the top spot at the box office bringing in an estimated $14.06 million. The hilarious comedy, starring Melissa McCarthy & Jason Bateman, is already at almost $100 million after only 17 days of being in theaters.

One of the films that opened this weekend was Snitch, starring Dwayne Johnson, coming in a close second with an estimated $13 million. Another film that opened this weekend (that I really want to see) is Dark Skies, starring Keri Russell. The alien abduction sci-fi horror film didn’t do as great, coming in sixth place with an estimated $5.21 million. Things are looking good for this film, considering it will have some stiff competition this coming Friday when The Last Exorcism Part II comes out.

Did any of you watch either of these three films this weekend? If so, share your thoughts in the comments. Check out the top 10 films at the box office this weekend in the list below.

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? Find out how the rest of the films did in the box office by checking out the Top 10 list below.
