Monday Morning Roundup January 9 2012

Posted on 09 January 2012 by TH3 No08

In one of the funniest box office results in years “The Devil Inside” had a huge opening weekend but still managed to piss off the entire film going public. Paramount managed to trick people into seeing their movie by cutting together a very interesting trailer but audiences were literally booing and throwing trash at the screen by the time the credits ran. There’s gonna be a huge drop off next week when word gets out that this is a gigantic smoldering turd and early word is that it may be out of theaters in three weeks. We can only hope.

Adam Sandler bad movie infographic

Posted on 14 November 2011 by TH3 No08

Over the years Adam Sandler has made 2 different types of movies, movies that make money and movies that don’t make money. It should come as no surprise to you that the amount of money that an Adam Sandler movie makes is directly proportional to how awful the movie is for the people watching it. So terrible movie = lots of money, great movie = no box office business. Check out this cool infographic from ScreenJunkies.com that gives you an inside look at what movies have made Adam Sandler money and why he keeps making bad ones.

The Noob News Monday Morning Roundup # 6

Posted on 18 April 2011 by TH3 No08

It’s Monday morning and that means it’s time to check the numbers and see who had the golden goose this weekend. Taking the #1 spot this weekend with the biggest opening weekend of the year is Rio who edged out Hop and Rango to earn the year to date top spot by over $3 million dollars. There was little competition for Rio as Scream 4 debuted with a weak $19 million dollar opening. It was a disappointing open for Scream 4 whose previous sequels had been box office gold. Scream 3 opened to $34 million dollars in 2000 which adjust to a nearly $50 million dollar opening in today’s terms. Coming in 3rd with a respectable $11 million dollars is the animated Easter flick Hop who pulled in $37 million dollars last weekend. Rounding out the top five were last weeks big surprises Hanna and Soul Survivor. They both continue to perform strong despite not having big stars or huge media campaigns.

Last weeks big disappointments continue to be this weeks disappointments as Your Highness and Arthur took huge drops both losing about 50 percent of last weeks sales. Look for both of these movies to disappear in the next week. The biggest holdovers from last week were Insidious and Source Code who continue to thrive on good reviews and strong word of mouth. Insidious looks to be a big winner within it’s genre as future estimates have it looking like it may now win out over Scream 4 for long term dollars in the coming horror lite months.

The Noob News Monday Morning Roundup #5

Posted on 11 April 2011 by TH3 No08

It’s Monday morning and you know what that means, It’s time to find out what movie’s you spent your money on this weekend. This weekends big winner for a second week in a row is “Hop” who continued it’s strong run with a 21 million dollar take. Despite it’s 42% drop from last weekend it still had enough to take out the Russel Brand vehicle “Arthur”. The remake of the 1981 comedy pulled in 12 million dollars for a rather anemic second place. This puts Brand in the rare position of having the two top grossing movies of the weekend, a feat that hasn’t taken place since Decaprio did it in “Man in the Iron Mask” and “Titanic” in 1998.

The two big surprises of the week got to the number 3 and 4 spots with “Hanna” and “Soul Surfer” posting strong debuts.Positive reviews for Hanna and a nearly 80% female audience for Soul Surfer drove these movies to strong positions and word of mouth may keep them there for a while.

The biggest disappointment this week was the stoner comedy “Your Highness”. The action/adventure/weed comedy failed to find it’s audience after it was mistakenly marketed as a movie starring Oscar award winners instead of marketing it to the people that drove Pineapple Express and Half Baked out of the red. Look for this film to disappear from theaters rather quickly much like Sucker Punch who has now dropped out of the top ten after just two weeks.

this week earnings to date
HOP $21,700,000 $68,156,305
Arthur (2011) $12,605,000 $12,605,000
Hanna $12,300,000 $12,300,000
Soul Surfer $11,100,000 $11,100,000
Insidious $9,740,062 $27,096,650
Your Highness $9,500,000 $9,500,000
Source Code $9,050,000 $28,618,633
Limitless $5,692,000 $64,380,230
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules $4,885,000 $45,462,260
The Lincoln Lawyer $4,600,000 $46,454,810

The Noob News Monday Morning Roundup #4

Posted on 04 April 2011 by TH3 No08

It’s Monday morning and that means it’s time to find out who the big winner was at the weekend box office. This weekends big surprise was the Easter themed Hop which nearly doubled weekend predictions with $38 million dollars. Hop topped Rango‘s strong opening by a small margin but probably does not have the legs that Rango has.

The Noob News Monday Morning Round Up #3

Posted on 28 March 2011 by TH3 No08

It’s Monday morning and that means it’s time to take a look at who made out like a bandit this weekend at the box office. This weeks winner is Diary of a wimpy Kid 2 which strongly out performed expectations pulling in 24 million dollars while the poorly reviewed Suckerpunch was left gasping for breath. Apparently word of mouth got out that Sucker Punch was all style and no substance and the movie crowd decided a kids book adaptation sounded like a good bet. Word of mouth is sure to keep Wimpy Kid 2 strong for a few weeks to follow.

Limitless and The Lincoln Lawyer continued to perform strongly in their second week. Both performed well with less that 20% drop off from the previous week. These two movies continue to do very well with the older crowd which means you’ll probably see them played to death on basic cable in a few years. For now expect them both to continue strong in the coming weekends.

Rango pulls in fifth with a still strong 9 million after 4 weeks. The best reviewed movie of the year has now passed the 100 million dollar mark and looks to be steaming steadily towards the 125 million dollar mark before it’s run in theaters is done.

The biggest drop offs this week were Paul -42%, Red Riding Hood -39%, and Mars Needs Moms -58%. All three of these movies have struggled to perform outside of their demo’s which has led to a quick drop off at the box office. Luckily for Paul they made a lot of money overseas before dropping here in the US 2 weeks ago. Red Riding Hood and Mars Needs Moms hope to find a second life when they hit DVD later this year.

 

1 Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules $ 24,400,000
2 Sucker Punch 19,015,000
3 Limitless 15,225,000
4 The Lincoln Lawyer 11,000,000
5 Rango 9,800,000
6 Battle: Los Angeles 7,600,000
7 Paul 7,506,000
8 Red Riding Hood 4,340,000
9 The Adjustment Bureau 4,245,000
10 Mars Needs Moms 2,186,000
10 Beastly 2,185,000

The Noob News Monday Morning Roundup #2

Box Office Report for the weekend of March 18 – 20

Yes folks it’s that time again, it’s Monday morning and that means it’s time to check out how rich you made Hollywood this weekend.

The weekends surprise winner was “Limitless”, starring nouveau man of the hour Bradley Cooper as a man who takes a pill that allows him to use 100 percent of his brain power, not grow a giant melon shaped head, and draw 19 million dollars at the box office.

Battle Los Angeles was expecting stronger 2nd week numbers than what it raked it. Apparently anyone who was interested in seeing “Battle: LA” has either already seen it, was scared off by bad reviews, or drawn in by by Bradley Coopers captivating blue eyes. Either way they fell off by 59% and ended up 3rd behind the still strong “Rango” who more than likely will hit the magic 100 million dollar mark this coming weekend.

Rounding out the top five were “The Lincoln Lawyer” at number four with a respectable showing of 13.4 million and my favorite opening of the week “Paul” at number five. Paul’s 13.2 million dollar opening is Simon Peggs/Nick Frost’s largest opening weekend and is considered a good opening considering the rather limited marketing of the movie as sci-fi/fanboy style entertainment. With the good reviews and solid opening (as well as 41 million dollars in international ticket sales) “Paul” is expected to hold steady
