Inglourious Basterds is fine financially and has made well above and beyond what the production companies expected. Not to mention it's putting up big numbers overseas. Inglourious Basterds is currently at $100 million domestically, with still a handful of weeks left in the tank.

And you are correct ilovemovies, movie theatres do not make jack shit from a movie's box-office take. Theatre profits are basically all made on concessions.

They get a bigger percentage each week, that's why studios are so concerned with the first couple of weekends, that's when they get the biggest percentage, their share dwindles each week. Supposedly they receive 50 percent of the opening weekend, on average, so IB really only netted about 17.5 ml for the studio opening weekend domestically. Let's say the deal was for the theaters to keep 60 percent the following weekend, that means it only netted about 8-9 it's second weekend, best case is 50 ercent for 10 mil. Now, at that point, the film has made the studio 27.5. IB is closing in on 200 mil worldwide, best case scenario they net half of that ( could b less )depending on the deals they made for release. that would be 100 mil with a 70 mil budget and prob a 15 to 20 ml marketing budget. My point is, it's not this runaway hit people are claiming, it desperately needed a decent overseas gross to eke out a small profit. No doubt dvd sales will help, that's where the majority of their profit will come from, they don't have to share the revenue with the theaters when they sell the blu ray and dvd.

If a movie has a great opening weekend and tanks hard thereafter, the theater is left holding the bag. I agree, they prob very rarely make money on the movies themselves uless something hangs around and has great holds for a couple of months but for every one that does that, there's probably 10 or 15 that they don't make any money on.

H2 will double it's budget domestically alone, IB had to rely on overseas gross to do this. There are no overseas numbers for H2 right now, but let's say it matches or even succeeds it's Na gross, that would mean it made quadruple it's budget in theaters. I'm sure the dvd sales will be brisk also. My point is, H2, because of it's minimal budget may prove to be more profitable for the Weinsteins than IB

Tyler Perry has done it again! His films can beat blockbusters like Transformers 2 and even Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds. 9 did well.Glad that Sorority Row didn't do well. We are fucking sick of remakes.I knew Whiteout would tank. Great for Inglourious Basterds and District 9. Gamer can now be called Game Over.

Also, I think there have been several good actors in other Tyler Perry flicks. Angela Bassett is a wonderful actress.

Other good actors who have appeared in Tyler Perry movies include:

Derek Luke
Vanessa Ferlito
Viola Davis
Alfre Woodard
Kathy Bates
Sanaa Lathan
Rockmond Dunbar
Cole Hauser
Gabrielle Union
Idris Elba
Blair Underwood

So he does manage to get decent actors in his movies.

Kathy Bates and Alfre Woodard are old and washed up. Union and Lathan are horrible actresses and that's why they're always in bad movies. Same for Underwood. I admit, I haven't seen much of the rest of them. None of this really changes that Perry makes the same movies over and over again. He could have a film of award winners, but it wouldn't change his cheeseball christian crap over dramatic flicks. If once quality actresses like Bates and Bassett have showed up in a number of bad movies, so it's not surprising.

But hey, it's a paycheck and they don't have to put any effort in. So I guess I should applaud them. This guy perry annoys me as much as Bay though.

I've seen 3 of his movies so far, 2 over this summer. They are NOT bad. They are perfectly fine films that are much better than films released these days. Perry uses classical themes in his films with uplifting messages. He sometimes exaggerate a lot of his scenes but that's the point but if you don't like that, then his films aren't for you. However, if you just have to see one of his films (of the 3 I saw), go see Why Did I Get Married?. There are some truly great performances in there. It's a fantastic film too.

I've seen one and bits and pieces of others. Enough to tell that it's largely the same old song and dance most of the time. Tyler Perry could get some people off his back if he stretched himself little. Even Wes Craven did Music of the Heart. These movies might be better than the usual Rom Com's, but they're nowhere near top movies for a year. Eve

I thought JB had a good chance to take the weekend also, glad i was wrong, guess Fox is nothing without giant( and small) robots running around. I honestly thought there were more pervs to make it a hit, Bwahahahahahahaha.

Two fails for the price of one, Cody and Fox, doesn't get any better than that.

H2 has more than doubled it's budget domestically( FD doesn't look as if it will), and it's overseas numbers aren't even in yet, i'll say it again, with all the hype for FD4, in 3d!, H2 will be more profitable for the studio. I know people don't want to hear that but it just may be true.

Gi Joe, is still scraping along, 145 mil right now, still has a chance to eke out 150 mil Bourne

Jennifer's Body, oh man, this made my entire month, i'm just pissed it even made as much as it did

although im not as into the whole shit on Jennifer's Body as it seems some of us here are! I must say i figured this would tank... the marketing for it was pretty shitty... was it for the teenage boys who wanna see Megan Fox in skimpy shit... or was it for the teenage girls who love Vampires? Was it for the old pervs who wanna bang Megan Fox (well.. Pervs all around) (well, Men all around) .. but you cant pull a pee wee herman in theaters!

I thought The Informant would be lower on the list as well, although a 3 Mil friday isnt anything spectacular, 2nd place is pretty good. Its a good flick, so well worth its spot. Glad Cloudy is doing good... when i first saw the previews i thought it may not do too well... but it seems as though it will.

Its a shame Paramount are fucks or we could be just a few short weeks away from seeing sweet sweet Shutter Island!

Considering this entry will only make a few million dollars more total than the previous one did in just its opening weekend, I don't think that Halloween II doubling its minuscule budget is really all that big a deal in the grand scheme of things.

Yeah, that's been pretty evident for a while now... give it up. You predicted Halloween II's opening to be $30 million... it will end up with maybe a couple million dollars more than that in its entire run. You don't see me rubbing that in your face every time I make a post in this thread. G.I. Joe is still an unsuccessful film. It will fall well short of its budget domestically and with marketing costs it may barely be able to make profit with worldwide numbers.

What are you talking about? H2 has barely broken even. It has made $30.7 million. Oh, wow. The studio will get $0.7 million in return. Whoop-dee-do. The budget for TFD is $40 million. It has now made $113 million worldwide.

Whiteout is getting wiped out, thats pathetic. maybe because the only marketing for it was like, 1 trailer that showed up on tv a couple of times, and maybe because they dont really explain the plot that well in the trailer. oh, and its a shitty trailer in general. probably adds up to losing interest.

i had no interest in seeing cloudy with a chance of meatballs, but with all the positive reviews and with it being the only movie to actually seem to be able to pull bank, i guess ill have to check it out.

Weekend Estimates

1. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs- $30.1 million
2. The Informant!- $10.6 million
3. I Can Do Bad All By Myself- $10 million
4. Love Happens- $8.5 million
5. Jennifer's Body- $6.8 million

7. Inglourious Basterds- $3.7 million
8. All About Steve- $3.4 million
9. Sorority Row- $2.5 million
10. The Final Destination- $2.4 million

Excellent for Meatballs, it had a huge increase on Saturday. Alright for The Informant! It made what most people expected and should make its budget back and then some. I Can Do Bad did the usual Tyler Perry big 2nd weekend drop. Love Happens did OK considering it had a pretty low theater count and had a decent PTA. Jennifer's Body tanked. 9 dropped harder than I thought it would. Focus Features really fucked that film over big time. If it was in 3000 theatres it could have made some really solid bank. Inglourious Basterds is still chugging along and is now Tarantino's highest grossing film! It's also doing insanely well overseas.

BOM's "Inglourious Basterds" worldwide total is strange. A week ago, I swear it said that it had close to $100 million in foreign gross, but now it says $83 m. Whatever it is, an amazing run for a hard-R, 150 minute, talky, heavily subtitled war film with a title like that.

Proof that a name attached to a film still has meaning in drawing the crowds. And I don't necessarily mean Brad Pitt... names such as Peter Jackson, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese and of course Tarantino that appear on posters mean quite a lot these days...

More proof that you can use subpar computer animation, celebrity voice work, and what not on par with the Ice Age movies.

Really, Pixar cannot be beat.

I agree that no animation studio even comes close to Pixar, but the animation in Meatballs looks pretty damn good (hardly sub-par), the voice work is actually relatively unknown, and the reviews have been much better than something like Ice Age. The reviews have actually been VERY good. Not just decent, but VERY good. I listened to Mark Kermode's review and it was really insightful. He claims that what you're referring to (sub-par animation, celebrity voice work, being on par with films like Ice Age), Meatballs actually avoids and gets away from. It doesn't have the overload of pop culture jokes and you're not focusing on the voice work (who is who), but rather the story and visuals.

I suggest seeing the film or reading some reviews before writing it off simply because it's not a Pixar film.

Family animated movie wins again. It's no surprise really, I just didn't know it was being released this weekend. Funny thing is, I hadn't seen many TV spots for it. I saw trailers for it . . . probably in front of Up and Monsters vs. Aliens which is exactly the target audience it wants. Kudos to the Cloudy . . . .

The Informant didn't do too badly. I'll be seeing that sometime this upcoming week.

I'm glad the Aniston and Fox movies didn't fare too well.
