Weekend Box Office Report: November 9-11, 2018

The Grinch steals first place! Dr. Seuss' cranky holiday hater crept into theaters this weekend and swiped the top spot at the box office as THE GRINCH opened with an estimated $66 million! The new computer-animated version of the nefarious green grump and his loyal pooch had a stronger start than the $55 million opening of Ron Howard's live-action adaptation HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS back in 2000 (that Jim Carrey showcase ended with $260 million domestic). Beginning its theatrical theft of Christmas over a month and a half before the actual holiday, the PG-rated update from Illumination Entertainment (DESPICABLE…

Weekend Box Office Report: November 2-4, 2018

Bohemian Rhapsody rocks the box office! The story of beloved band Queen hit the screen this weekend and put BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY in first place with an estimated opening of $50 million! The glimpse into the lives of the anthem rockers had the second-best opening ever for a music biopic, behind the $60.2 million start of N.W.A. movie STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON in August of 2015. Propelled by a praised performance from star Rami Malek as charismatic singer Freddie Mercury, the PG-13 drama also had fists pumping in the international arena with an extra $91.7 million overseas for a worldwide total of $141.7…

Halloween hacks into another winning weekend! Michael Myers is still making a killing at the box office as HALLOWEEN once again slaughtered the competition this weekend with an estimated $32 million! The Blumhouse-produced sequel (with no sequel number) saw its business cut by 58% from its fierce opening last weekend, bringing The Shape’s return to a ten-day domestic total of $126.6 million. It is already the highest-grossing slasher movie ever, after surpassing the $103 million finish of the original SCREAM in 1996. The Haddonfield horror-thriller from director David Gordon Green and co-writer Danny McBride also stabbed its way past the…

Halloween carves up a huge opening! Michael Myers stalked moviegoers for more horrifying homicide this weekend and put HALLOWEEN on top of the box office with an estimated opening of $77.5 million! The masked murderer's latest slaughter (which ignores all previous HALLOWEEN sequels and remakes) had the second-biggest October opening of all time, just a bit short of VENOM's $80 million domestic premiere two weeks ago. Picking up 40 years after the original Haddonfield massacre, the $10 million Blumhouse production also easily had the biggest opening in the slasher genre, almost doubling the $40.5 million opening of the 2009 FRIDAY…

Venom keeps a grip on first place! Tom Hardy and his fanged symbiote partner retained their hold on the top of the box office this weekend as VENOM made an estimated $35.7 million! Director Ruben Fleischer's PG-13 Marvel comic adaptation dropped by 55% from its opening last weekend. Although VENOM isn't officially part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the second-week loss is about average for that blockbuster superhero series (it's the exact percentage that AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR dropped in weekend two). While Spider-Man was nowhere in sight, the cinematic origin story of his gooey black comic book adversary has a…

Venom chomps into box office records! The deadly black symbiote and his human host Tom Hardy pounced into first place this weekend as VENOM took the top spot with an estimated opening of $80 million! The toothy antihero squashed the record for biggest October opening weekend, easily snatching the title from Alfonso Cuaron's GRAVITY, which had a $55.7 million opening in 2013. VENOM also pulled in $10 million of its total just from Thursday night previews, setting another record. The lethal protector's opening is the second-biggest for Hardy behind his villain role in another comic book blockbuster THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, which started out with…

Night School is top of the class! The education of comic Kevin Hart was the center of attention this weekend as NIGHT SCHOOL opened in first place at the box office with an estimated $28 million! Hart's pairing with Tiffany Haddish didn't start quite as strong as his original team-ups with Ice Cube (RIDE ALONG opened to $41.5 million) or The Rock ($35.5 million for CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE), but it's still a solid opening for the actor and a decent number for a September release. The PG-13 comedy from director Malcolm D. Lee (GIRLS TRIP, UNDERCOVER BROTHER) had a reported cost…

The House with Cash in Its Walls! Many moviegoers wanted magic and chills this weekend, putting THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS in first place with an estimated opening of $26.8 million! Director Eli Roth's shift away from more hardcore violent subject matter proved to be his most successful opening so far -- HOSTEL started with $19.5 million back in 2006, while his recent update of DEATH WISH opened to $13 million this past March. The new PG-rated dark fantasy, an adaptation of John Bellairs' spooky childrens book, cost a reported $42 million. It gathered an extra $3.1…

The Predator hunts in first place! The infamous intergalactic game hunter(s) returned to Earth this weekend and took the top spot at the box office as THE PREDATOR opened with an estimated $24 million! The R-rated action-thriller, which finds a new gang of military misfits contending with the trophy-hunting visitor, came out a bit lower than the $24.7 million start of the Robert Rodriguez-produced sequel PREDATORS in 2010. For further comparison, the skull-collecting space beasts also grabbed a $38.2 million opening from clashing with the xenomorphs when ALIEN VS. PREDATOR came out in 2004. The original PREDATOR opened with $12…

The Nun is terrifying at the top! Audiences wanted some supernatural chills this weekend, putting THE NUN in first place at the box office with $53.5 million! The new R-rated spinoff of THE CONJURING scared up the best opening in that series, far ahead of the $41.8 million start of the original THE CONJURING in 2013. The period prequel, which cost a reported $22 million, also frightened another $77.5 million out of international audiences for a worldwide opening weekend of $131 million. With a current cumuluative global total of $1.33 billion, THE CONJURING franchise is now the highest-grossing R-rated horror…

Crazy Rich Asians can't be stopped! Once again, the romantic comedy CRAZY RICH ASIANS ruled the top of the box office with an estimated $22.2 million! On its third weekend in theaters, director Jon Chu's PG-13 adaptation of the global bestseller lost only 10% of business from last weekend, hitting a domestic total of $110.9 million even before tomorrow's Labor Day holiday is factored in. The late-summer phenomenon (which cost a reported $30 million) has also started reaching international audiences for an extra $19.9 million, taking it to a worldwide total of $130.8 million. Jason Statham was still fishing in…

Crazy Rich Asians keep getting crazy rich! For a second weekend, the romantic comedy CRAZY RICH ASIANS was at the top of the box office with an estimated $25 million! The adaptation of Kevin Kwan's bestselling book dipped by a mere 5.7% from last weekend's opening figure (after its Wednesday start). That puts it in the company of rare single-digit second weekend drops of releases such as THE FUGITIVE (-5.6%), THE SIXTH SENSE (-3.4%) and AVATAR (-1.8%) Director Jon Chu's popular PG-13 romcom (which unsurprisingly has a sequel in the works already) has collected a 12-day domestic total of $76.8 million…
