MI4 is certainly posting steady numbers. This could end as the biggest in the series. Chips and Sherlock are holding on well too. I wonder if War Horse will increase this weekend since it is the first full weekend of its release or if it will just continue around where it has been. Is New Year's weekend typically a big one or a slow one? I'd imagine tomorrow will be fairly slow as everyone is at parties or watching the ball drop.

Since Christmas Eve fell on a Saturday, this weekend should be bigger than last weekend. Expect increases from last weekend of around 15-30% for most movies.

New Years Eve actually sold out today at my local Regal. I'm guessing though it has something to do with it being around New Years currently.

As expected, a nice uptick for movies post-Xmas. Good to see Zoo increase a bit (should piss off the Damon-hating morons over at Big Hollywood).

That's awesome for Zoo. I knew it would catch on, especially after I saw it yesterday. War Horse definitely hasn't picked up the slack though. It did well on its first two days, but has since dropped pretty hard. I was kind of expecting it to break out after its initial numbers.

Excellent opening and that's basically going to be it for TDI, since I've heard nothing but toxic word of mouth. Better to open big out of the gate before the huge plummet.

F Cinemascore. Look for one of the biggest drops in history next weekend. It's profitable, obviously, but people aren't going to go back for a sequel. This isn't the next Paranormal Activity phenomenon.

I thought Tintin would of done better.May`be because he`s not so well known in the states but even still with Jacksons and Spielbergs names attached i thought that alone would guarantee big box office.Looks like Devil inside me will make more and get a sequel.Where Tintin looks like he`ll only get the one adventure before retirement haha.

Very robust numbers. I wouldn't be surprised if Safe House pulls out the win, because romantic movies are always inflated on Friday due to date night. The Vow will likely also do very well on Tuesday.

Holy crap - The Vow and Safe House did $40 million each??? And the 3rd and 4th movies both did $20 million each?

I don't get wowed by box office numbers much, but that's a lot of dough spread over a lot of movies.

Looks like patriotism is still alive or did gamers went to see that movie believing it was an unnofficial adaptation of Call of Duty:Modern Warfare?

Carter didn't even reach 10 mil on friday.

$9,818,000 estimate

Lorax is in second place with just 200 thousand less. It might even overtake Carter for the weekend, depending on which movie the younger audiences go for.

Well, The Hunger Games is absolutely huge. It took in 68.3 million on Friday and reports are saying it could cross $150 for the weekend.

This would make it the highest opening weekend for a non-sequel ever.

They "marketed the shit" out of John Carter too. And many other movies that didn't do so well.

People wanted to see this movie because of the popularity of the books and the quality of the marketing. Not showing a single minute of the games in any trailer or spot was a very wise choice indeed.

Also, Hunger Games had a reported 45 million budget for advertising, which is much lower than most comparable blockbusters - John Carter, Green Lantern, A-Team, and certainly successful pictures like Spider-Man 3. But its opening weekend beat them all.

That's huge. Even for a popular franchise of books, that's huge. On top of the popularity of the books, I think it comes down to a couple of things:

1) It appeals to more than just females

2) The reviews were great

3) The marketing made you want to actually go see it to find out what happens, instead of giving away every plot point and set piece like so many under-performing blockbusters do.

It also sounds like this thing will have some pretty good legs. It doesn't have a lot of competition for the next month or so. The March release date is really going to pay off.

It's a huge failure, at least domestically. It cost $150 million to make and probably won't even hit $100 million. It opened to about half of what the first one opened to. That's what happens when you make a sequel to a shitty film and then put half the amount of marketing effort into it as you did with the first one.

Titans has already made $112 million worldwide, so it'll recoup it's budget - more than likely. Nevertheless, here's hoping this is the last one for a while.

For some reason HG isn't doing as well overseas.

There was talk that this could be a Billion dollar film worldwide, it's not even going to get close. It's been released in almost all major overseas markets and it has made about 110 total so far.

That's odd because this looked like a film that had universal appeal, maybe not .

Of course it's still a massive success just not as massive as it appeared it was going to be in light of the domestic numbers.

I think 21 million is a solid haul for a comedy sequel nine years after the fact. I would have been surprised by the franchise if it pulled in more. American Pie has seen straight to video for nearly a decade.

What was the studio forecasting?

Not much more than it made. Mid-20s tops, I think. Like Scream, I think it's silly to expect a 4th entry in a franchise that decreased in quality with each entry (just the consensus, not inviting an argument) to do as well as the earlier entries. $21 million would be a very solid opening for it (and still kind of is), but its budget was $50 million, so clearly they were throwing a ton of money at a bunch of actors who would never get that kind of money on another movie. If it had a reasonable budget of $30 million or so, it would have been worth making. As it stands right now, they'll make the money back eventually, but I don't think we'll be seeing another sequel.

Here is the plot synopsis for Think Like a Man:

Four women have given up on getting their men to do what they want until they find a how to book written by Steve Harvey. They start using his advice about relationships, and their men start falling in line, until the men discover what the women have been doing, then the war is on.


I haven't seen any previews or promos for the movie either. I don't know what to think. I will say it does have a couple good actors in it. Taraji P. Henson and Gabrielle Union (where the hell has she been?).
