perfect-guy-posterTwo new films took the top two spots this weekend. The Perfect Guy was the top of the box-office with $26.7 million, and The Visit was in second with $25.9 million. Last week’s top spot, War Room, dropped to third with $7.4 million.

Some other recent notables, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation was in fifth place with $4.15 million, and Straight Outta Compton dropped a bunch to sixth with $4.1 million.

For geeky films, Ant-Man was in twelfth place with $1.6 million, and Jurassic World added $1.2 million to its total as well. Minions was thirteenth with $1.56 million and Inside Out was fourteenth with $1.464 million.

Other comic book films, Fantastic Four added $430,000 to its total, where it stands at $160.8 million total worldwide. The Diary of a Teenage Girl added $57,835 to its total to bring its grand total to $1.39 million.

Here’s the 2015 top five grosses for the year so far. Inside Out has passed Furious 7 to move into third for the domestic total.

Domestic

  1. Jurassic World – $648.9 million
  2. Avengers: Age of Ultron – $458.4 million
  3. Inside Out – $351.5 million
  4. Furious 7 – $351 million
  5. Minions – $331.6 million

Worldwide

  1. Jurassic World – $1.6559 billion
  2. Furious 7 – $1.5117 billion
  3. Avengers: Age of Ultron – $1.4022 billion
  4. Minions – $1.0801 billion
  5. Inside Out – $747.4 million

Straight Outta Compton Falls to Second Due to Unlikely Film

WarRoomMoviePosterThree weeks at the top of the box-office was it for Straight Outta Compton, which fell to second place in its fourth week out adding an estimated $8.85 million to its total. It was bumped off by the faith-based film War Room, which earned $9.35 million in its second week. Faith-based films tend to have a strong grassroots marketing program, so it’s not surprising it did so well, but a first place finish is.

Also of note is the debut of Un Gallo con Muchos Huevos, a Mexican animated film which earned $3.4 million and came in seventh. The strong showing of that film and War Room show strength in niche films geared towards a specific audience.

Inside Out added $3.1 million to its total to come in tenth, Ant-Man was eleventh with $2.9 million, and Minions was twelfth and earned $2.7 million. Jurassic World continues to earn with $2.6 million more at the domestic box-office. Fantastic Four continues to tank and added $1.125 million to bring its total to $54.4 million domestically and $155.6 million worldwide.

The Diary of a Teenage Girl continues to do well and added $258,926 to bring its total to $1.3 million.

Here’s the 2015 top five grosses for the year so far:

Domestic

  1. Jurassic World – $646.6 million
  2. Avengers: Age of Ultron – $457.8 million
  3. Furious 7 – $351 million
  4. Inside Out – $348.2 million
  5. Minions – $328.6 million

Worldwide

 

  1. Jurassic World – $1.649.6 billion
  2. Furious 7 – $1.5117 billion
  3. Avengers: Age of Ultron – $1.4016 billion
  4. Minions – $1.0428 billion
  5. Inside Out – $734.4 million

 

Straight Outta Compton Takes First for the Third Week in a Row

Straight Outta ComptonThe competition was rather week, which had Straight Outta Compton easily sail to keep first place at the weekend box-office. The film has been in first place for three weeks in a row, in what shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. It was a slow weekend though with an estimated $68.8 million earned by the top 12 films, and that’s 22% lower than last year’s $88.2 million, and even that was an off year.

Straight Outta Compton earned an estimated $13.2 million which kept it number one, beating out War Room which earned around $11 million. In third place was another debut, No Escape, which did escape with an estimated $10.3 million. That bumped Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation into fourth.

In comic and geek related movie news, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. was in sixth place with an estimated $4.4 million. Hitman: Agent 47 has already been assassinated earning just $3.9 million in its second week. Jurassic World keeps eating dollars adding $3.1 million to its impressive totals. Minions keeps multiplying adding $2.9 million to its domestic total. Ant-Man came in at tenth earning $3.1 million. Fantastic Four continues with a non-fantastic earning, bringing in $1.7 million. The Diary of a Teenage Girl added $425,000 to its total. And finally Terminator: Genisys brought in $190,000.

For the year, Jurassic World reigns supreme domestically having earned $643.1 million. Avengers: Age of Ultron is second with $457.5 million. Furious 7 is third with $351 million. Inside Out is fourth with $344.5 million, and Minions is fifth with $324.8 million.

Worldwide grosses are the same movies, but a different order. Jurassic World rules with $1.6367 billion. Furious 7 is second with $1.5117 billion. Avengers: Age of Ultron is third with $1.4013 billion. Minions has crossed the billion line and stands currently at $1.0189, and  Inside Out is fifth with $702.5 million.

Straight Outta Compton Stays on Top of the Charts

Straight Outta ComptonFacing weak competition, Straight Outta Compton remained in the top spot at the weekend box-office for the second week in a row. The film earned an estimated $26.76 million to stay in first place. The film’s total domestic gross currently stands at $111.5 million. The film hasn’t earned much of anything overseas, my guess is it hasn’t opened yet, if it will.

Repeating in second place was Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation which added $11.7 million to its total to bring itself to $157.8 million domestically after four weeks. In foreign markets the film has earned $280.8 million to bring its worldwide total to $438.6 million.

Other big debuts this week was Sinister 2 which came in third and earned an estimated $10.6 million, the video game based reboot Hitman: Agent 47 which earned $8.2 million for fourth, and American Ultra which earned $5.5 million to place sixth.

The other major holdover was The Man From U.N.C.L.E. which in its second week came in fifth and earned $7.4 million to bring its domestic total to a meager $26.6 million. The film has earned $26 million in foreign markets so far.

In other comic related movie news, Ant-Man added $4.1 million to its domestic total to come in eighth and bring its domestic earnings to $164.5 million. The film has also earned $196.5 million in foreign markets to bring its total to $361 million. While the film has likely made a profit with a budget of $130 million, it trails other Marvel Cinematic films to be the second worst earner just ahead of The Incredible Hulk. The film has a chance to move past Captain America: The First Avenger before it’s done, but it’ll be close.

Minions continues to rake in the money adding another $3.7 million to its domestic total. The film stands at $319.965 million domestically and is just shy of crossing the billion dollar mark worldwide. It sits at $989.365 million. If it does, it’ll be the fourth film this year to do so.

Fantastic Four continues its spiral into the negative zone (ie how much money it stands to lose when it’s all over). The film added $3.65 million to bring its domestic total to $49.6 million and worldwide total to $130.4 million.

The Diary of a Teenage Girl in its third week continues to expand the number of theaters it’s in. The film is now in 69 theaters and earned $180,000. The film has earned an estimated $425,000 at the domestic box office. It was purchased for $2 million at Sundance.

The yearly box office ranks hasn’t changed from last week. Jurassic World remains in the top spot domestically and has earned $639.568 million. Avengers: Age of Ultron is second with $457.4 million, Furious 7 is third with $351 million, Inside Out is fourth with $342.4 million and Minions is in fifth at $319.965 million.

Worldwide things are similar in rankings with slight differences. Jurassic World is still on top with $1.6229 billion, Furious 7 is second with $1.5117 billion, Age of Ultron is third with $1.4012 billion, Minions is fourth with $989.4 million, and Inside Out is fifth with $689.9 million.

Straight Outta Compton Tops Chart, Man From U.N.C.L.E. Stumbles

Straight Outta ComptonStraight Outta Compton ruled the weekend box-office coming in at number one with an impressive estimated earning of $56.1 million. It knocked Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation out of the top spot into second place where it added an estimated $17 million to its total. Another high profile debut, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. didn’t fair so well, earning just $13.535 million for its first week at the domestic box-office.

Straight Outta Compton looks to have debuted as the sixth best August opening of all time, and adds to a stellar year for its distributor Universal which has crossed the $2 billion mark at the box-office on Saturday. It beats the previous record holder Warner Bros. by four months. They hit that mark December 25, 2009.

When it comes to comic movies Fantastic Four dropped to fourth, losing 68.9% from the previous week. While that might seem like a lot, it’s not the worst for a movie headlined by a Marvel character. Elektra, X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Hulk all did worse. Fantastic Four added $8 million to its total to bring its domestic earning up to $41.96 million. The film has earned $102.1 million worldwide so far.

Ant-Man was in sixth place adding an estimated $5.5 million to its domestic total. The film has earned $157.6 million domestically and $336.5 million worldwide. The film still sits in second to last as far as earnings for Marvel Cinematic Universe films.

The Diary of a Teenage Girl which is based off a graphic novel expanded its opening to 22 theaters and earned $112,000. The film earned a lot of buzz at Sundance and was purchased by Sony Pictures Classics for $2 million. The film has earned a total for $195,000 so far in its two weeks.

For the yearly totals, Jurassic World still reigns supreme. The film is at the top of the domestic box-office grosses with $637.9 million. It’s still earning a decent chunk, so that number has a ways to go before it’s done. It’s followed by Avengers: Age of Ultron in second with $457.2 million, Furious 7 in third with $351 million, Inside Out in fourth with $339.4 million and Minions rounds out the top five with $313 million.

The worldwide grosses are a little different with Jurassic World still on top with $1.6062 billion, and Furious 7 in second with $1.5117 billion. Avengers: Age of Ultron has earned $1.3988 billion to be in third place. Minions is fourth with $957.5 million, and Inside Out is fifth with $639.5 million.
