Wow, The Visit actually made some money. It's been a while since a M Knight movie has done so.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

Man, I was hoping that we might really get another funny Bill Murray film someday, but the commercials for Rock the Kasbah were SO awful, unfunny and basically unwatchable, that this BO result isn't much of a surprise.

BTW : There was a movie called Oogieloves In The BIG Balloon Adventure that opened on over 2000 screens?

No problem, my eyes do the same always assume the stickies are either forum rules or advertisements.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

Who in their right minds, other than the staff members of CNBC and The Huffington Post, would want to see a movie called OUR BRAND IS CRISIS?

P.S. And apparently, they're the only ones who went to see it. What a comedown for Sandra Bullock after GRAVITY and THE HEAT. I guess she and Clooney got overconfident after GRAVITY and figured they could make one for themselves rather than the audience. (Clooney's a producer of OUR BRAND IS CRISIS.) Which is fine as long as you don't release it in theaters.

The movie was originally supposed to star Clooney. They knew they had a dud on their hands and released it on an excusable weekend (Halloween fell on a Saturday this year which wrecks B.O. havoc). Truth is another "based on true events" political movie with a great cast that tanked horribly (at least Our Brand Is Crisis looks to have fun with their situation). All that said, these movies all had budgets between $5m and $30m, so while a loss -- it's nothing that they can't bounce back from. Pan dominates as the money loser of the season.

Weekend Estimates (Based on Friday, early Saturday and estimates for Sunday), I did the Top 21 so Jem and the Holograms could join in on the fun:

The whole space genre has been popular the last few years, even when you discount the big franchises like Star Trek, Alien or Guardians of the Galaxy (Marvel). Gravity made $274m domestically / $723m WW, Interstellar did $188m domestically / $675m WW, and The Martian is about to pass that domestically (Currently $182m), though it has a way to go worldwide (made $428m so far).

Bodes well for some good sci-fi projects moving forward.

Maybe some good ones, but with that, expect a lot of shitty ones as well with studios thinking they can bank on this for a quick buck.

The one benefit here is that all 3 movies had legs, none opened huge, which means they actually need to be fairly decent movies to succeed.

Interstellar opening: $47.5m -> $188m domestic
Prometheus opening: $51m -> $126m domestic
The Martian opening: $54.3m -> en route $200m+ domestic
Gravity opening: $55.8m -> $274.1m domestic

I mean, it isn't a fair example since Prometheus is the only R rated one... but I don't think that excuses it from making $60m less considering it had a $51m opening.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

Thursday night previews of Spectre drew $5.25M at 3,221 theaters last night, which gives it a giant projected range of $60M - $65M (Sony's projection) all the way to $75M - $80M (Industry projections).

Peanuts opens this weekend and is expected to make between $40M and $45M.

Critically, Spectre has a 63% approval rating on meta review site rottentomatoes.com with a 6.5 / 10.0 average score among critics. Peanuts has an 87% with a 6.9/10 average score.

And The Martian is now Ridley Scott's highest grossing domestic movie with $187.76M, unadjusted mind you.

The Martian, Bridge of Spies, Hotel Translyvania 2, Goosebumps and even The Intern have shown impressive legs. Room looks like another critically acclaimed non-money maker for A24.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

I'm curious how Spectre would've preformed on a different weekend. I do think the Thursday night release of Black Ops III ate into potential business as people opted to stay at home to play the game rather than venture to the movies. I know I was almost one of the individuals, but ended up catching an early evening showing last night just to get out of the house.

Nevermind that Peanuts opened pretty huge. Parents had to take the kids to the movie, so they will probably check Spectre out at a later time.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

It's tough to say to be honest, tracking had this at $70m for the last couple weeks, and Skyfall had Bond 50th Anniversary working in it's favor, not to mention a great trailer and free advertising thanks to Adele's opening theme and Olympic skydiving stunts. It even had me anxious to see it in theaters, and I basically never see Bond flicks in theaters.

I didn't see the first two Craig films in theaters, but what piqued my interest was the team up of Mendes an Deakins. While its not a great film, its definitely a beautiful film (especially in its IMAX presentation).

While I enjoyed Hoytema's cinematography in Spectre, I will agree with the complaints that the colors shouldn't have been as muted as they were.

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

Adjusted down to 70m for Spectre... probably 225-230ish domestic, 900m worldwide. Still great, but a little lower than most were hoping I think.
