weekend box office bad boys for life

Ride together, die together, blow up the box office together: Bad Boys for Life is a hit. The third entry in the action franchise exceeded expectations at the weekend box office, taking in 83% more than initially projected. But while Bad Boys had a good weekend, Dolittle did not. The Robert Downey Jr. film flopped, giving Cats distributor Universal Pictures another box office body blow.

Rise of Skywalker box office billion

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has Force-d its way to $1 billion at the worldwide box office, making it the fifth Star Wars movie to cross that threshold and cementing it as the second J.J. Abrams-directed film on the list of billion dollar grossers.

weekend box office 1917

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is no longer in first place. The weekend box office numbers are in, and it appears that Sam Mendes’ World War I epic 1917 has dethroned the final entry in the Skywalker Saga to be number one. Elsewhere in box office land, Kristen Stewart’s fun sea monster movie Underwater failed to swim and instead sank, which is a serious bummer because that movie deserves better.

weekend box office the grudge

Here we are, in the dead days of January. It’s the time of year where studios dump movies they’re not entirely confident about. That doesn’t mean the movies are bad, per se. But it doesn’t they’re good, either. The biggest new release last weekend was the horror reboot The Grudge, which didn’t draw much of a crowd. The low-budget of the film – reportedly around $10 million – ensures that the fright flick will break even, but it still had the lowest opening weekend of any film in the franchise to date.

frozen 2 box office

Disney knew it wouldn’t be dealing with the unknown when it released Frozen II into theaters. The highly anticipated sequel to one of the studio’s biggest hits ever was bound to work its magic over the holiday season. And it did that, and more. Frozen II is now the highest-grossing animated film of all time, with a $1.325 billion global box office haul that surpasses the first Frozen and 2018’s Incredibles 2. That is, of course, if you don’t count Disney’s other recent “animated” hit, The Lion King.

disney 2019 box office

It’s no surprise that Disney owned the box office last year, but the extent to which the House of Mouse broke 2019 box office records is staggering. With four studios under their jurisdiction and a monopoly on nostalgia, the Walt Disney Company has had a historic, absurdly lucrative year. In 2019, Disney zoomed past box office milestones, earning 33% of all domestic box office grosses last year and becoming the first studio in history to cross the $10 billion mark globally. It was a banner year for Disney, but these new box office heights will probably be the highest the studio will reach, at least for a few more years.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Box Office Second Weekend

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker had no problem dominating the box office for a second weekend in a row. The end of the Skywalker saga made over two times as much as Jumanji: The Next Level did in second place. However, it’s not all good news for The Rise of Skywalker, because the movie saw a roughly 59% drop from opening weekend, which is larger than analysts were expecting for the blockbuster sequel. What does that mean for the future of the Rise of Skywalker box office run? Read More »

Cats wasn’t the Jellicle choice for audiences at the movies this weekend. The expensive Tom Hooper-directed CGI monstrosity bombed at the box office, while Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker soared to the top of the weekend box office charts, even though it didn’t come close to matching the opening weekend of its trilogy predecessors.
