That seems pretty good for a movie like Kingsmen.

Re: W.B.O. Valentines Weekend 2015 - Mr. Grey Dominates Strong Kingsman

I personally think we're underestimating 50 Shades of Grey. Early estimates had the Friday opening at $26M whereas it walked away with $31M. Even with $8M on Thursday night, I don't think that will hurt the Saturday numbers with it being Valentine's Day. I know a lot of couples seeing the film tonight (and all of them have already purchased their tickets in advance) before or after their dinner plans. I wouldn't be surprised if Saturday's gross is higher than $31M. I would not be surprised if the film crosses $100M by Monday.

Definitely possible. Doesn't this film skew to older audiences somewhat, at least compared to the Twilight movies? They tend not to rush on opening day.

since there was a lot of snow tonight on the east coast, if someone had pre ordered but didn't go, does that still count towards the box ofice

Hasn't there been a lot of snow the last few weeks? Doesn't seem to hurt the box office much.

I'm not a numbers guy and I'm too lazy to do the research, but how does 50 SHADES' boxoffice compare to that of the SEX AND THE CITY films?

Wow, so 50 SHADES has got them all beat already! I'm guessing it's because more younger women are going to 50 SHADES than the earlier films and more women are dragging their boyfriends and husbands to 50 SHADES, whereas they knew Goddamned well they couldn't pull that with the SEX AND THE CITY/MAGIC MIKE films.

Jupiter Ascending fell 54% overseas and is now at $92m worldwide (including Domestic, $58.9m overseas), it had an anemic opening in the normally accepting South Korea and has opened in all major markets now outside of China, Australia and Japan. You can't officially call it a flop until after China, but it seems highly unlikely that it won't be a massive write-off.

Box Office Guru:

http://www.boxofficeguru.com/weekend.htm

Relevant quotes.

On 50 SHADES:
It was the fourth biggest opening weekend of all time for an R-rated film and highest ever for the month of February. It was also the top non-sequel debut in company history for Universal. The much-buzzed-about film was developed through its specialty division Focus with the studio taking over and giving it a major league push.
Critics were quite harsh in their reviews of Fifty Shades before it released and paying audiences were in agreement as its CinemaScore grade was a lousy C+. Given the low audience scores and intense upfront demand, look for rapid erosion in the days and weeks ahead. A last-minute IMAX version was offered tapping into those willing to pay a premium and the 85 screens contributed $2.1M over four days.

Studio data showed that opening day audiences skewed female, as expected. 68% were women while 58% were over 25. Delayed from its August 2014 release date, Universal wisely picked Valentine's Day weekend - the one time of the year when men are most likely to submit to seeing films they actually do not want to see. The strategy worked wonders. Brilliant marketing for months paid off handsomely, especially the use of Beyonce's music in trailers and TV spots which helped to give broad mainstream appeal.
On JUPITER ASCENDING:
Suffering the worst drop of any film in the top ten was the sci-fi bomb Jupiter Ascending which grossed an estimated $10.7M in its second weekend. Cume for the Warner Bros. release is just $33.8M, a weak amount for an action film costing more than $175M to produce.

On JUPITER ASCENDING:
That seems like an unnecessary detail on Jupiter Ascending, but that doesn't surprise me coming from BoxOfficeGuru. Jupiter Ascending was down less than 50% weekend-to-weekend which is surprisingly solid for a movie that poorly received.
