box office numbers

Kristen Stewart and her blood-sucking crew once again ruled this weekend’s box office making it a three-peat for the final chapter of the Twilight franchise. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 added another 17.4 million to its impressive total. Landing in the runner-up slot (just barely) is the lastest James Bond flick which scored $17 million. Skyfall continues to increase its total as the biggest grossing 007 flick of all-time.

While Twilight and Skyfall continued their reign over the box office, a notable newcomer failed to create much excitement at the cash registers. Brad Pitt’s latest drama, Killing Them Softly, opened weakly with only $7 million. While critics were generally kind to the arty hit man flick, audiences were not. The film scored the very rare, and embarrassing, “F” from audiences via CinemaScore. OUCH. Someone might want to take a hit on whomever greenlit this project ;)

In other box office news, two Oscar frontrunners continued to impress. Silver Linings Playbook starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper had the highest theater average in the Top 10 and declined much smaller from last weekend’s Thanksgiving-inflated numbers than any other film. Meanwhile, Ben Affleck’s Argo crossed the all-important $100 million milestone in its 8th weekend of release. Check out what else landed in the Top 10 this week below.

This weekend, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 opened in theatres with an astounding estimated $141.3 million. This is the fifth and final instalment of the Twilight series was just above the $138.12 million start of last year’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and just below the $142.84 million start of 2009′s The Twilight Saga: New Moon. On it’s own, it was the eighth largest opening weekend performance of all-time, and tenth when inflation is taken into account.

Skyfall, which dominated the box office last weekend, came in second this weekend and brought in an estimated $41.5 million. That brings its total to $161.3 million so far. In third place was Lincoln, a Steven Spielberg-directed drama starring Daniel Day-Lewis that opened this weekend. Find out how much the film brought in and what other films make up the top 10 list below.

‘Skyfall’ Dominates The Box Office

In: Movies, Patrick

The highly anticipated Skyfall film opened in theatres this weekend with a bang and was the largest debut ever for a 007 film (both unadjusted and adjusted for ticket price inflation). Skyfall brought in a whopping $87.8 million, quite obviously earning the top spot at the box office this weekend.

This was also the the seventh largest opening weekend gross of all-time for the month of November. Ahead of Skyfall in this category are only Twilight and Harry Potter movies. I haven’t yet seen the film, but all I’ve heard is good things, with Facebook statuses like, “Skyfall…worth every penny.” Did you watch Skyfall this weekend? If so, share your thoughts in the comments on what you thought in comparison to past Bond films.

In second place this weekend was Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph which opened last weekend. The film brought it an additional $33 million this weekend taking it’s total to an estimated $93.7 million. Find out how the other films did in the top 10 list below.

Last week, Hotel Transilvania dominated the box office in it’s opening weekend. Although still doing strong this week, it’s Taken 2 that leads the pack. I have yet to see it, but I definitely want to and will likely do so this week. The first one was so good! Matt reviewed the film and gave it 2.5 out of 5 stars.

So far, Taken 2 is estimated to bring in $50 million this weekend which is definitely a great start. Also opening this weekend was Frankenweenie, which brought in an estimated $11.5 million. I personally have no desire to see that film. If was to see anything else in theaters right now, Pitch Perfect would be at the top of my list. That movie looks absolutely hilarious.

Did you see Taken 2 this weekend? If so, share what you thought in the comments. I’ve listed the top 10 films at the box office below as well.

This weekend was a pretty slow weekend at the box office, even though there were a handful of new films that opened this weekend. One of the films that opened this weekend was cop action/drama titled End of Watch, starring the sexy Jake Gyllenhaal. The film brought in an estimated $13 million this weekend. Coincidentally, that is the exact same amount that House At The End Of The Street is expected to be bringing in this weekend as well. The thriller starring Jennifer Lawrence just opened in theaters as well. Looks like this weekend was all about the “Ends”.

Coming in third place this weekend was Trouble With The Curve, starring Clint Eastwood, Justin Timberlake, and Amy Adams. Although there are lots of big names in it, it looks kind of boring to me in comparison to the competition. I could be wrong though. The film brought in $12.7 million this weekend, so it wasn’t too far behind the “Ends”.

Lastly, Dredd 3D also opened this weekend, but I think it was hurt by the fact that Resident Evil: Retribution opened in theatres last weekend and the same type of people watch that movie. Dredd only brought in $6.3 million this weekend.

The early estimates are in for box office performance this weekend and it looks like Resident Evil: Retribution came out on top with an opening weekend of $21 million. Admittedly, I haven’t seen all of these films, but after seeing the preview for this fifth instalment, I was eager to watch it myself. The action flick stars Milla Jovovich as well as Michelle Rodriguez. No other video game-based movie series has come anywhere near this franchise’s successful longevity.

Finding Nemo 3D came in second place with an estimated $17.5 million in its opening weekend. This film definitely has to be one of my favorite Disney animations with Ellen DeGeneres as Dori – so hilarious. Another filmed that opened this weekend was The Master, starring Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Amy Adams. The film was only limited release, but did super well considering that with an estimated $729,745. I can’t wait to see this one!

North American Box Office Gets Possessed

In: Donovan, Movies

Typically, Labor Day long weekend brings in relatively low box office numbers. People usually opt out of seeing a movie in favor of enjoying the last weekend of the summer. So while beaches, parks and campgrounds are busy, movie theaters are not.

With that said, The Possession, which was produced by Sam Raimi, scared up $17.7 million making it the second-highest Labor Day opening ever. Rob Zombie’s 2007 remake of Halloween still holds the crown with $26.3 million. The Possession gives movie studio Lionsgate three weekends in a row with the top movie.

Coming in second place was Shia LaBeouf and Jessica Chastain’s drama, Lawless. The Prohibition-era film walked away with $9.6 million. A couple of action films came next with The Expendables 2 and The Bourne Legacy taking in $8.8 and $7.2 million respectively. In the fifth slot is Paranorm adding another $6.5 million to its total.

Proving you should never open a kids movie during Labor Day weekend is Oogieloves In The Big Balloon Adventure. The film earns the distinction as having the WORST wide-release opening ever. With just $448,000 in sales receipts, the film averaged a embarrassing $207 from 2160 venues. That’s like 20-30 people for each screening. LOL. Poor Toni Braxton. Her heart keeps “unbreaking“. Reportedly, the film cost about $50-60 million to make. Check out the rest of the Top 10 below.

This weekend, Premium Rush opened in theaters starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The film is about a bike messenger in the Big Apple that picks up an envelope that attracts the interest of a dirty cop, who pursues the cyclist throughout the city. Although he has become more popular thanks to Inception and The Dark Knight Rises, it seems as though he’s can’t pull in the crowd for his own movie just yet. Despite good ratings for the film, it came in 7th at the box office in this its opening weekend, bringing in only an estimated $6.3 million.

Taking the top spot once again was the action-star-studded sequel, The Expendables 2, which brought in an estimated $13.5 million, bringing it’s total to $52.4 million.

Also opening this weekend was 2016: Obama’s America, a documentary that examines the question, “If Barack Obama wins a second term, where will we be in 2016?” The film brought in an estimated $6.2 million and is expected to become the most successful conservative documentary to date.
