Box Office Predictions (09-11th Aug) Results
Not a great weekend for the box office. Got some sad failures and some funny failures but no run away hits I am afraid. This weekend is actually quite important as it is the last weekend of big budget summer releases, sad that it didn’t do too well but there is only so much a film can do to get an audience. Go watch some movies!
Can’t forget about are returning films as well. 2 Guns did not do great with a 59% drop to $11M. The Wolverine dropped big again this weekend with 62%. The Conjuring is not lying down with only a 48% drop. Pacific Rim sadly dropped out of the top ten this weekend but did pretty well internationally to a worldwide total of $344M.
Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters
Wow I did not expect such an epic fail! The first film made $31M on opening, this only made $14M. Guess we’re not looking at the new Harry Potter. It couldn’t even beat a straight to DVD animated film.
We’re the Millers
It may not have done as well as I thought but it’s still better than most had it making and $26M isn’t bad for a low budget comedy film. I actually want to see it because I liked the trailer, anyone who saw would like to warn me off or tell me it’s worth my time is welcome.
The reviews are mixed, the budget was large and the money isn’t exactly rolling in. Its sad but I think sony do not have the hit they were hoping for and I certainly hope the man responsible doesn’t pay for its weak box office. Neill Blomkamp’s District 9 made a cool $37M and went onto make $210 worldwide but stellar reviews and truly inspired advertising made that film an event. Don’t take it out on Niell Sony, he will pay off well someday.
Just stick the Disney logo on any animated film and it will make at least $20M. It makes no sense how this film made money. Shame on anyone who saw it. $22M!?
