Weekend numbers!
http://www.boxofficemojo.com/weekend/chart/

Argo still holding strong and also Hotel Transylvania(oh poor Burton!). Paranormal Activity 4 still losing popularity and it should end the series already. Dissapointment for Cloud Atlas, Silent Hill Revelation and that other surfing movie. Hello why they didin't release the film to summer 2013?

I wish Cloud Atlas had done better but I am not surprised by the numbers. Although it was an expensive film to make it was independently financed and did not have a large marketing budget. It also, despite having Tom Hanks and Halle Berry, had confusing and overwhelming trailers that never quite had a strong narrative hook.

I suspect it will do better overseas.

Well Paranormal's budget was only 5 million so I doubt its the last one...Amazing that Argo lost in its first two weeks of release only to come out on top in its 3rd week...whens the last time something like that happened? Poor Cloud Atlas....not a good number at all...I still might check it out this week sometime.

The last time that happened was The Blind Side.

Flight had a nice $8.2 million Friday, which is incredible for being in only 1900 theatres. I am baffled as to why this didn't open in 3000 theatres. I guess it will help build WOM (it had a nice A- Cinemascore), but you won't be able to gain many screens when stuff like Skyfall, Lincoln, Twilight, Life of Pi, Silver Linings, etc. start coming out.

You think it could be because it's rated R?

Maybe, but Argo is rated R and opened well a few weeks ago. I'm sure they have an explanation, but I can't really think of what it would be.

I love that Argo continues to do so well. It's a fantastic film. I disliked Flight, but I realize I'm in the minority on that and I'm happy to see Zemeckis do well and I do hope Denzel rides this film to an Oscar nomination.

But everything has to watch out for Skyfall. It's going to be huge. Highest opening for a Bond ever, I'd wager.

Is Weinstein really going to drop the ball on Silver Linings? Yeah, it's still rolling out, but its PTA has been weak since it opened. There is no way that this shouldn't be a $100+ million hit. WOM is great, but when you open so poorly, it's difficult for there to be enough word to spread.

Maybe TWC got spooked by how the release pattern of The Master went. Great opening limited weekend PTA, but it fell fast once it went wider. The problem is, as you've said, SLP is definitely more of a crowd pleaser than that film, but they're gonna platform it to death if they're not careful.

Friday numbers

1. Breaking Dawn Part 2 - 5.4 mil
2. Skyfall - 4.8 mil
3. Lincoln - 4 mil
4. Life of Pi - 3.3 mil
5. Rise of the Guardians - 2.9 mil
6. Killing Them Softly - 2.5 mil
7. Red Dawn - 2 mil
8. Wreck-It Ralph - 1.6 mil
9. Flight - 1.3 mil
10. The Collection - 1.2 mil

Typical weak post-Thanksgiving weekend. Not really good for Killing; yeah, yeah, it was cheap to produce, but it will drop hard if that "F" Cinemascore rating is true. Yes, the reactionary insta-grade system where The Blind Side gets an A but Solaris gets a fail. I wonder how it would've fared back in its original release date rather than the dump weekend.

Why they made a sequel to a horror flick that did poorly at the box office and its sequel does the same? Dumb yanks!

Oh I believe it. I loved it, but about half the theatre walked out. I'm guessing it's because the movie is fairly slowly paced (although I didn't think overly so) or because they didn't want to hear the harsh commentary on America. I find it funny that UK critics pretty much unanimously praised it, while American critics have been rather mixed.

Christmas Day Estimates

1. Les Miserables- $18 million
2. Django Unchained- $15 million
3. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey- $11.3 million
4. Parental Guidance- $6.4 million
5. Jack Reacher- $5.3 million
6. This Is 40- $4.4 million
7. The Guilt Trip- $2.6 million
8. Lincoln- $2.3 million
9. Monsters Inc. 3D- $1.4 million
10. Skyfall- $1.3 million

Huge numbers for Les Miserables and Django. Particularly impressive for Django, given that it's a violent, R-rated spaghetti western released on Christmas.

Close race between the top three. Les Miz was probably a little frontloaded due to fans of the musical racing out on Xmas, but it should do quite well over the next few weeks. It can count on another ticket from me. It's fantastic that Django is a box office hit, too. Any time movies boost the holiday box office is a good season.

The Hobbit is heading to a billion worldwide ( 300 mil plus domestic is a given at this point ) and considering the less than stellar reviews overall from critics ( in comparison to the Lotr trilogy ) and the bitching from fans about stretching out the book to three films, that's mighty impressive .

If this series follows what Lotr did, each film will make more money than the last .

Maybe we should just call this series Billion Baggins

1. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey- $32.9 million ($222.7 million total)
2. Django Unchained- $30.7 million ($64 million total)
3. Les Miserables- $28 million ($67.5 million total)
4. Parental Guidance- $14.8 million ($26.9 million total)
5. Jack Reacher- $14 million ($44.7 million total)
6. This Is 40- $13.2 million ($37.1 million total)
7. Lincoln- $7.5 million ($132 million total)
8. The Guilt Trip- $6.7 million ($21.1 million total)
9. Monsters Inc. 3D- $6.4 million ($18.5 million total)
10. Rise of the Guardians- $4.9 million ($90.2 million total)

Some people thought that Django would put up a Dragon Tattoo performance, but boy were they wrong. This is well on its way to being Tarantino's highest grossing film. Les Miserables also put up great numbers.

It's great to see Django do so well. I'm sure it'll have legs because of word of mouth that'll carry on into the new year. I'm also happy Skyfall just passed the one billion mark and is performing better than Twilight.

1. Zero Dark Thirty- $24 million
2. A Haunted House- $18.8 million
3. Gangster Squad- $16.7 million
4. Django Unchained- $11.1 million
5. Les Miserables- $10.1 million
6. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey- $9.1 million

8. Parental Guidance- $6.1 million
9. Texas Chainsaw 3D- $5.2 million
10. Silver Linings Playbook- $5 million

Great for Zero Dark Thirty. I don't even know what A Haunted House is. Apparently it's so bad that the theatre chain that my local theatre belongs to isn't playing it anywhere in the country. Gangster Squad put up surprisingly low numbers. I guess those reviews didn't help it. Silver Linings keeps moving along. It hasn't exceeded 810 theatres yet and it's already made $42 million. It goes wide next weekend (after Oscar noms and potential Golden Globe wins) so I expect you'll see it eventually hit the $80-100 million mark.
