Weekend Estimates

1. The Dark Knight Rises- $36.5 million
2. Total Recall- $26 million
3. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days- $14.7 million
4. Ice Age: Continental Drift- $8.4 million
5. The Watch- $6.4 million
6. Ted- $5.5 million
7. Step Up Revolution- $5.3 million
8. The Amazing Spider-Man- $4.3 million
9. Brave- $2.9 million
10. Magic Mike- $1.4 million

Nice hold for TDKR. That's a better percentage hold than the third weekend of TDK. Looks like it's going to have some decent legs. Total Recall did poorly. However, for some reason I thought its budget was $200 million, and it's actually $125 million. If it does decently internationally, it might not be a total bomb. It's still a bad number though.

Good for TDKR

The Bourne Legacy should take the top spot next week though.

I think both The Bourne Legacy and The Campaign will open to $30 million or more. DKR will probably be #3 next weekend.

Strong hold this week though.

$733 million Worldwide and counting for DKR.

Amazing Spider-Man, Brave and Magic Mike still holding at the top 10. Another fucked-it-up-this-time for major studios greenlighting unnecesary remakes with Total Recall. I bet it'll drop big next weekend.

Pretty good for Bourne and The Campaign. I thought Hope Springs would make a bit more, but I guess it's the kind of thing that will have good legs.

TDKR is poised to cross a Billion worldwide, it may just make even more than TDK the way it's going .

It made more overseas than it did here ( Batman and Robin did the same also which i find somewhat odd ) which i was positive it would so it begs the question concerning the appeal of Ledger's Joker or any BM film with the Joker in it .

Some people said there was no way a film with an admittedly b level villain ( at least until this film came out ) such as Bane would be able to tear up the box office. They were partially right because the latest Batman film won't make as much as the previous one in North America but it's already the most succesful at the foreign box office with regards to this series . Almost af if the roles were reversed .

I guess Ledger's performance was more of a revelation in America but people everywhere else seem to be responding to Bane and i imagine Selina Kyle more than they did to the Joker in TDK . My guess is that these two characters, at least the way they are portrayed in this universe, have a more cosmopolitan appeal .

Ledger's death may have contributed somewhat to TDK's box office in NA but according to the numbers the combo of Bane and Kyle rules overseas with this latest installment .

This is just about a wash concerning box office, TDKR will make about the same amount or even more than TDK in the end .

Two Batman films making over a Billion worldwide, that's pretty damn impressive .

I've noticed this too. The domestic/international breakdown for TDKR is an almost exact inversion of its predecessor's numbers. I can understand the film making less in North America than its predecessor, but I'm curious as to why TDKR is so successful overseas. The point about Bane and Kyle being more "cosmopolitan" makes sense but I'm not sure why.

It's possible a character like Bane travels well in various languages because he's more machismo based than a Joker character .

Ledger's Joker was more complex ( somewhat effeminate also ) and the subtle layers he brought to the character were possibly overlooked if the film was dubbed or possibly subtitled .

Bane is somewhat more simplistic and imposing, the performance can be appreciated on a purely visual level , it's a character people can readily identify with, The Joker is something highly unusual.

And someone like Selina Kyle, she has the same physical aspect appeal as Bane but in an erotic sense .

Just throwing stuff out there but it is curious as to why TDKR is so much more succesful overseas

TDKR did better than I thought it would. I felt it would struggle to hit $400 mill and it looks like it may get close to $450 mill. I still feel had Nolan gone with Two Face, Scarecrow, or another better known villain this thing goes over $500 mill. But even with an obscure villain, the pull of the Bat is pretty impressive.

Bottom line, you can't miss with a Batman, Superman, or Hulk movie. Even the average ones rake in a boatload of cash. I Imagine the upcoming Superman movie will be no different.

Apparently, the Dark Knight Rises is doing better overseas because the overseas markets have expanded drastically since its predecessor was released. It was expected to improve on Knight's international gross significantly.

I imagine the overseas markets have expanded, more theaters and a larger populace but it's only half the story because there is about 100 mil difference between the domestic and international gross, it's resonating much stronger than TDK overseas for some reason .

I like that Paranorman is still hanging around, it should hit 50 mil total now domestic , that's very impressive for a film like that . Stop motion is a tough sell, it looks like only one film in this style has broken 100 mil , i would say anytime you break 50 mil you're doing something right . It's doing well overseas also, looks like it's poised to be a genuine hit .


About Possession, i was thinking about 20 mil for the weekend, that will be for the 4 day instead, i don't know why this would be a surprise to anyone, it's in line with what these types of films do

Unfortunate about Lawless because you know it cost a bundle to make. It looks like it won't break even domestic and that's just another nail in the coffin of R rated movies.

What needs to happen is another avenue and way to generate revenue on R rated films. Understand your market is adults who do really want to see movies like that, would much rather watch Lawless or Killer Joe than The Dark Knight, but don't really have the time or strong desire to go to a movie theater.

Use the channels currently available (Netflix, On Demand, etc) to deliver the product to the adults that would rather watch at home on their plasma/LCD with the surround sound. There has to be a way for the industry to use those avenues and get more revenue from R rated films.

1. End of Watch- $13 million
2. House at the End of The Street- $13 million
3. Trouble with the Curve- $12.7 million
4. Finding Nemo- $9.5 million
5. Resident Evil: Retribution- $6.7 million
6. Dredd- $6.3 million
7. The Master- $5 million
8. The Possession- $2.6 million
9. Lawless- $2.3 million
10. ParaNorman- $2.2 million

Pleased to see End of Watch on top. It's really great and I think it will have good legs (it's budget was only $7 million, so it's well on its way to a nice profit). Dredd did terribly. The Master did decently in its expansion, but I was hoping for a bit more.

That's great for Hotel Transylvania. It's looks pretty dumb, but I imagine it's a great one for kids. That should be around $20 million for Looper, which is impressive. It was only tracking low to mid-teens a couple of weeks ago, so that's pretty damn good. It only has a budget of $30 million too, so it's well on its way to success. I'm really happy for Rian Johnson.

I'm afraid of to watch Hotel Transylvania for a couple of reasons. #1, Adam Sandler's last couple of movies have been so wretched that I'm officially afraid to watch any of his movies. And #2, the last time he did an animated the result was 8 Crazy Nights which is about as unwatchable as movies get.

Stop motion films are a difficult sell, i think someone on the main pages made a comment about if FW was a cgi offering it would have made more money, i'm inclined to agree, there is something about stop motion that doesn't appeal to the mainstream, even though Paranorman was succesful and so was Coraline, it's not a style that burns up the box office like certain cgi films do.

I don't care, i just hope people don't stop making them because it's a style i love and appreciate. Hopefully FW can make some decent money overseas

Sinister is doing well, chalk up another horror movie success .( i'm not sure what it's budget was but i doubt it was high, 15 mil maybe ? )

I'm sure PA 4 will tear it up next weekend also and hopefully SH 2 the weekend after. Paranorman, Possession, RE 5, now Sinister, who says horror is dead . Of course people will disagree concerning the various quality of these offerings but there's no doubt horror still sells consistently. I'm still disappointed with what FW is doing but not every horror movie is going to be a hit. There is one thing for certain, ghost/possession stories are the ones that appear to be the biggest draws at the box office

Here comes the Boom looks like it's going to be a full fledged bomb, i love it

Argo was only tracking high teens, so this is not unexpected. It doesn't skew young enough to open to much more than $20 million. This is more of a WOM movie (it had an A+ Cinemascore, which never happens). Expect it to finish with around $90-100 million. Maybe more, given its big Oscar push.

Weekend Estimates

1. Paranormal Activity 4- $30.2 million
2. Argo- $16.7 million
3. Hotel Transylvania- $13.5 million
4. Taken 2- $13.4 million
5. Alex Cross- $11.8 million
6. Sinister- $9 million
7. Here Comes the Boom- $8.5 million
8. Pitch Perfect- $7 million
9. Frankenweenie- $4.5 million
10. Looper- $4.2 million

The Paranormal Activity franchise is losing steam (the last one opened to $52 million). Sure, its budget is only $5 million (marketing costs weren't cheap though) and they will make a few more, but there is nowhere to go but down from here. Incredible hold for Argo. It's well on its way to $100+ million.

People seem to have Madea-mania, not Tyler Perry mania. His non Madea movies never did great. I bet the filmmakers behind Alex Cross are regretting casting him now.
