The Last Stand

It’s that time of year where we see which films were the biggest box office flops of 2013. 2013 has come to a close, so now we can see what films were sure to have gotten at lease a few executives yelled at. A few notes on the table, the vast majority of those listed… read more

Another quiet weekend at the box office leads to weak openings for the newest releases. Jack the Giant Slayer opened with a pretty weak $28 million off of a $195 million dollar budget. It took in $13.7 million overseas and looks to be pretty much destined to be a bomb. Warner Brothers is off to… read more

Oscars weekend is always quiet at the box office, but this one was especially quiet with a 22 percent drop from last year. Identity Thief regains the top spot at the box office this weekend with $14 million. This brings its domestic total to $93.6 million off of a $35 million budget. Apparently this movie… read more

Apparently some people still are up for seeing Bruce Willis get into horrible situations, but not as many as used to. A Good Day to Die Hard took the weekend with $25 million bringing its total to $33.2 million. It’s currently pacing behind the last film, Live Free or Die Hard. It’s only about $5… read more

Despite the winter storm, and this same basic story being turned in to a film about every ten years, Identity Thief stole the weekend. Much to everyone’s surprise, Identity Thief over performed by about one-third  at the box office this weekend to take in around $36.5 million. Considering it had a budget of $35 million,… read more

There appears to be a trend appearing at the box office: 1980s film stars have no mojo left. The Zombie romcom Warm Bodies came in first at the box office this weekend with $19.5 million. A bit of a surprise, but congrats to an off-beat comedy taking the top spot. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters… read more

It was not a pretty weekend at the box office financially, and the top dog certainly has nothing to crow about. Not surprising me in the least, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters had a very soft opening at the box office this weekend with $19 million off of a $50 million dollar budget. It’s being… read more

Horror is once again at the top of the box office… and ninth place. Taking the top spot this holiday weekend was Mama with $28.495 million. While not huge, the film only had a $15 million budget, so it’ll probably hit the black in short order when you count in marketing and other associated costs. Zero Dark… read more

A new film took the top spot this weekend, and last week’s champ all but disappeared. Zero Dark Thirty, the story of the takedown of Osama bin Laden, went into wide release this weekend and brought in $24 million. It was only in up to 54 theaters over the past three weeks, so people were… read more

Welcome to the first of four parts of an analysis of every major film release of 2013. I decided to attempt something new this year where I would make some comments about every major release for the year before they released. I have compiled the list and broken it down by quarter. Wednesday- 1st Quarter… read more

And the top box office draw this weekend… was quite frankly a bit of a surprise. I’m not sure anyone saw this coming, but Texas Chainsaw 3D took the top spot at the box office this weekend with an estimated $23 million. I am firmly in the, “Really?” camp on this one. Coming in second… read more
