Box Office Predictions (23-25th Aug) Results
This weekend did not go as I predicted at all, a lot of shocking numbers, but mostly low. Returning films did very well but most of the new releases bombed. Or did they? Go watch some movies!
The Butler won AGAIN barely dropping 30% to bring in $17. Kick-Ass 2 on the other hand dropped a whopping 68% to $4M. Jobs and Paranoia dropped out of the top ten in their second week as I predicted.
Compared to other horror films this summer you could say this film bombed but I think its budget is really tiny so it’s probably already in the black with this weekend’s haul. I think for an essential indie film making over $7M in one weekend is good business. And the film has Isaacs’s approval so that’s good enough for me.
The Mortal Instruments
I was actually pretty spot on with this film. I am afraid the film suffered from an overcrowded genre at this current time, not my cup of tea but my cousin really likes the books and is going to see it soon. I said $9M and it made $9.3M.
The World’s End
Again I made a pretty damn good prediction. With only 1000 screens making $8.9M isn’t too bad, they may even expand to more screens in the coming week.
- You’re Next: -$16M
- The Butler: -$13M
- We’re the Millers: -$11M
- The Mortal Instruments: -$9M
- The World’s End: -$9M
- Planes: -$8M
- Elysium: -$7M
- Kick-Ass 2: -$6M
- Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters: -$4M
- 2 Guns: -$3M
- The Butler: -$17M (+4M)
- We’re the Millers: -$13.5M (+2.5M)
- The Mortal Instruments: -$9.3M (+0.3M)
- The Worlds End: -$8.9M (-0.1)
- Planes: -$8.5M (+0.5M)
- Elysium: -$7.1M (+0.1M)

- Percy Jackson: -$5.2M (+1.2M)

Well that’s my views. Now what do you think about this weekend and its new releases?
