Weekend Box Office Report: June 6-8, 2014

Jun. 8, 2014by:

Everyone is at Fault!

Moviegoers ditched traditional summer material this weekend in favor of something a bit more dramatic, putting THE FAULT IN OUR STARS at the top of the box office with $48.2 million!

The adaptation of John Green's bestselling novel got almost as big a jump as actress Shailene Woodley's previous young-adult adaptation DIVERGENT, which just opened in March with $54.6 million (and went on to $267 million worldwide).

The teen cancer romance was a hit with critics (82% on Rotten Tomatoes) and paying crowds (straight 'A' CinemaScore), but we'll see how sturdy the heartbreaker can hold up against the summer's continual onslaught of huge releases every weekend.

Last week's conqueror MALEFICENT shifted to second place with $33.6 million, a drop of around 51% from its opening weekend. Disney's live-action fairy tale prequel is up to $127.6 million dometic, with a global total of $335 million.

Woodley's ailments and Jolie's villainy were apparently more appealing than Tom Cruise's time-looping troubles. The A-list actor's new sci-fi war movie EDGE OF TOMORROW opened in third place with $29.1 million despite really solid reviews (89% on Rotten Tomatoes), although audience reaction only prompted a 'B+' CinemaScore.

Whether it was the tough-sell premise or just early blockbuster fatigue, the costly PG-13 action movie ($175+ million) opened even lower than Cruise's last big-budget sci-fi release OBLIVION ($37 million), which failed to crack $100 million domestic but when on to a $286.2 million worldwide total.

EDGE OF TOMORROW (it's unlikely the original novel title ALL YOU NEED IS KILL would have helped much) has already been in front of some international crowds for an extra week and has brought in an additional $111 million, but perhaps Cruise's global appeal is waning. Time for another MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE!

Coming in fourth was Fox's all-mutant hoedown X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST with $14.7 million and $189.1 million total after three weeks in theaters -- still lagging behind X2 and THE LAST STAND domestically, but easily the biggest of the X-franchise worldwide with $609 million.

Seth MacFarlane's R-rated Western comedy A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST got kicked to fifth with $7.1 million, down 57% from its limp opening last week. The gunslinging yuks were followed by GODZILLA with $5.9 million, although the King of Monsters is starting to drag his feet as he approaches $400 million worldwide.

NEIGHBORS, BLENDED and CHEF all wrestled with each other to amuse audiences, although Jon Favreau's food-truck comedy seems to be getting the most fuel from word-of-mouth (and hungry ticket-buyers). The sports drama MILLION DOLLAR ARM closed out the list, while THE OTHER WOMAN departed the chart with THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 (still groping for $700 million worldwide).

Next weekend has new sequel offerings on opposite ends of the spectrum: family crowds will undoubtedly flock to the CG-animated HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2, while grown-ups get R-rated laughs from Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in 22 JUMP STREET. In limited release are the dystopian action-drama THE ROVER, the thriller THE SIGNAL, and the Aaron Paul drama HELLION.

Adobe and I were spot on.

That adobe article was perfectly accurate in its predictions for Tom Cruises movie tanking. Tom Cruise hasn't had many box office successes in the past few years. Also, the general public is too stupid to wrap their heads around time travel and scifi plots. They won't spend money on something that could confuse them.

I'm a huge fan of Tom Criuse, but yeah, he not the draw he used to be. I'd also have to agree with you about all the stupid people, so I'm thumbing this up. You're just telling it the way it is.

However, I think the movie will end up in the green when the dust settles. We'll see.

3D Killing it For Me

I have every intention of seeing the Edge of Tomorrow on the big screen, but it is only really available with normal showtimes in 3D or 3D IMAX around me. After the first week or two, the movies stop showing as much in 3D and the I got see them. Def hurts the opening weekend numbers, not sure how many other people skip out like that. In the past, I've pretty much seen every major summer movie opening weekend...Not anymore...

I've read the source novels for both Edge of Tomorrow and The Fault in Our Stars

And I realize that this is probably the most unmanly thing I can possible say, but The Fault In Our Stars was loads better. Seriously, I realize that I am not the target audience for that novel but it just really well written and manages to present what could be a very cliche story in a pretty touching way. The book at least deserves all of the praise it's gotten. I haven't seen either film yet, but want to see both. Although I wish "Edge" had done better, personally I'm happy that Fault In Our

Although I wish "Edge" had done better, personally I'm happy that Fault In Our Stars is doing so well, hopefully it'll convince studios that there's money to be made in quality adaptions of serious, critically-acclaimed young adult novels and not just in Harry Potter/ Twilight/ Hunger Games ripoffs.

I guess technically I should have been rooting for "Edge," being as it's a non-franchised genre film. But in truth I find the suggestion that Tom Cruise's personality-free style of performance might no longer be a draw rather appealing.

Still a bit of a shame, because Emily Blunt is rather good (in spite of the damn silly script) and a far more credible action star than Cruise.

As much as I'm excited to see edge I can't help but feel that didn't market it correctly. The trailers may seem a tad confusing to the regular audiences. But I could be completely wrong and they were just not interested. Who knows.

Shouldn't that be "C'Mon, Audiences"? Hollywood seems to have given "Edge of Tomorrow" more than a fair shake. Surely they're as displeased as anyone that people didn't show up for it?

Or the fact that The Fault In Our Stars is one of the most critically acclaimed young adult novels of the decade, was listed on several major publications "Best of the Year" lists when it was released and has sold over 10 million copies. I think that might have something to do with it.

I feel like Fault in our stars will only be on top this weekend where as Edge of Tomorrow will have the solid word of mouth to do a bit better or about the same the next weekend.

Actually Edge of Tomorrow, based on a Japanese novel for high school kids, only came in third. So it's not that lucrative. Unless you mean that the top four movies are based on a novel, a fairy tale, a novel and a comic book, then yes, it's a solid business plan.

'The Fault in out Stars' is a book hyped within school libraries. Whenever teens have to write a report on a book from the school library, 'The Fault in Our Stars' is one of those recommended books. 'All You Need is Kill' (Edge of Tomorrow) is a manga comic, which is a small geeky niche in America.

You see, Herald, the teenagers that read The Fault in our Stars all showed up this weekend. That was 90% of the audience. The next month will not fare well for that movie. I don't base what's "lucrative" off of number of tickets sold, because any one group in huge numbers can create a boost of sales. I base what is lucrative from the quality of screenplay and execution of that screen play. And Edge of Tomorrow is more than just action, it's humorous too.

@Heralam, and while it may not be your niche, Fault In Our Stars is based on an exceptionally well written, critically acclaimed book and the screenplay has gotten a fair amount of praise, too. In that regard both films seem to be successes from an artistic standpoint. I agree that Fault In Our Stars will probably be more frontloaded, though. The audience this weekend skewed overwhelmingly young and female although I wouldn't be surprised if it benefited from lots of repeat viewers.

The Fault in our Stars

Never heard of it until literally just now. I hadn't even seen a trailer and I'm on Joblo, IGN, youtube and IMDB frequently. When I read that it had taken #1 in the box office, made nearly $50 mil, AND topped Cruise's Edge of Tomorrow all at the same time, I thought it was a typo or a joke. Whatever, just glad I didn't have to watch that teeny-bopper bait. The synopsis sounds like it wants to take 'best dramatic movie' award at the Nickelodeon awards lol.

They're estimates. They just use a formula to project what a movie will make on Sunday based on Friday and Saturday receipts. Actual box office are released Monday afternoon. (Sunday/weekend estimates are reported by the studios, which is probably why they're occasionally higher than the actuals...)

As for the why, I assume it's because they want it to be available for the news first thing Monday morning.

Oh wait, I mean males who claim they like R-rated action flicks, but still let movies like Dredd 3D bomb and then wonder why no studio wants to make R-Rated action movies anymore.

Just because it's based on a teen novel doesn't automatically make it crap. The Fault In Our Stars was one of the most acclaimed novels in 2012 and wound up on a lot of mainstream critics and major publication's Best of the Year lists. The movie has also gotten really solid reviews. I understand this kind of movie doesn't appeal to you but the overwhelming consensus is that it's a quality product based on quality book.

True. But domestic grosses and particularly opening weekend are what the industry looks at as the acid test of how successful a movie is. Virtually every movie turns a profit sooner or later, but the money people want it to be Sooner with a capital S, and they remember which movies returned in a hurry and which did not.

Nah, Tom Cruise just doesn't have the box office magic he used to and the studio did a really crappy job at marketing it as anything other than a generic sci-fi action film. If this had starred a young up and comer like Chris Hemsworth or Chris Evans and had J.J. Abrams or Joss Whedon's name attached to it than it would have made a lot more.

Kids wanted to see the Jolie flick so the fellas lost the batlle this weekend as to what movie to see.You had Cap2, Godzilla, Spidey and X-men so no way were the ladies going to pass up watching the Fault of Our Stars which already had a huge following. Edge of Tomorrow was a great popcorn movie so I hope word of mouth helps it because, Im truly sick of the Cruise haters plus Cruise killed the role and Blunt was awesome to. Hell Depp, Damon, Sandler and many stars can do bombs but when Cruise or Will Smith have a bomb the critics go crazy like its their birthday! Edge already made money overseas and when it opens in China it will make even more money.

I would consider myself a "Cruise hater", but I am a lover of quality movies, so I'll be seeing Edge of Tomorrow on Tuesday. I can move beyond my opinion of Tom Cruise when the movie is worth it.

Edge of Tomorrow is the best blockbuster of the Summer. Godzilla is a distant second, and it blow Days of Future Past out of the water.

I haven't seen Edge of Tomorrow, it very well may be better than X-Men but I personally have no clue how Godzilla beats out X-Men by any sort of half-way objective reasoning.

I didn't need Adobe to tell me EOT would bomb. Looked terrible from the start. If its not Mission Impossible I have no interest in seeing any Cruise movie in theatres....

But, it's not terrible. At least, that's not what people who actually saw the film think.

It was okay. Cool visuals and solid acting between Cruise and Blunt. The problem (besides the premise) is that every other character is completely replaceable. People complained about the actors in Godzilla being boring.....other than Paxton (who still had a lame one-dimensional character) and the two stars was absolutely snooze-worthy.

It's worth seeing in the theaters, but hardly at the level of DOFP or Captain America. The ending really sucked as well.....

Ha if foreseeing a box office failure 3 months before the movie comes out makes me a "troll" or an "idiot" you kids are fuckin stupid. Give your head a shake, tell your mom to clean up your room, and try to find a girl in your high school that will talk to you that is below 250 lbs.

Adobe said edge of tomorrow would be a flop. 30 mill opening weekend isn't that big of a flop with everything else that's in the theater right now. It will have legs. It'll probably stand firm at #3 for a couple weeks. They also said expendable's will be a flop. And I'm sure it'll do just as well as the previous 2 did. Adobe sucks
