star trek beyond failed

Star Trek Beyond was by no means a box office disaster. It raked in $158 million domestically and went on to have a $343 million total haul worldwide. But compared to its predecessors Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness, Star Trek Beyond failed to boldly go toward sky-high box office expectations.

MoviePass Ticket Numbers

MoviePass is certainly shaking things up when it comes to the theatrical box office. It remains to be seen what the long term impact will be for theater chains and studios (or whether MoviePass can sustain itself), but for now, MoviePass is growing and showing no signs of slowing down. The service has passed 2 million subscribers, and they’re only going to get more with their recent price drop for an annual subscription.

With that large of a consumer base, MoviePass hasn’t been shy about touting their influence on the movie-going public. In fact, they’ve just provided some general numbers for which movies they’ve sold the most tickets for since their revamp last year. It should come as no surprise that Black Panther comes out on top with over 1 million tickets sold through MoviePass, but it appears the service has helped plenty of other movies sell tens of thousands of tickets.

Black Panther Box Office

Marvel’s Black Panther has become even more of a box office giant than any of the industry’s wildest predictions and expectations. The film has broken record after record since hitting theaters on February 16, and now it has a new crowning achievement.

Even though Black Panther won’t be at the top of the box office for six weekends in a row, the money raked in this weekend has sent the movie past $624 million on the domestic charts. That means Black Panther has officially surpassed The Avengers total gross of $623.4 million in 2012 and it’s now the highest grossing superhero movie ever in the United States. Read More »

Black Panther Box Office

Over the weekend, the Black Panther box office numbers were already exceeding even the most generous predictions. Disney estimated that their three-day opening weekend was going to be $192 million while the four-day holiday weekend was projected to rake in $218 million. But the Black Panther box office haul has gotten even bigger.

The latest Black Panther box office numbers have the movie pulling in $201.8 million for the three-day opening weekend, and the Presidents’ Day holiday total is projected to be $235 million. Those numbers have it shattering records already, and there’s a chance it could pass up some huge blockbusters on the box office charts still. Read More »
