June 6-8 Box Office Predictions: ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ to top ‘Edge of Tomorrow’

There are two big new releases for the box office this weekend. One is Edge of Tomorrow, a sci-fi action vehicle starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. The other is a romantic drama The Fault in Our Stars, based on the acclaimed novel of the same name by John Green. I'll start with Edge of [...]

Box Office Predictions May 30-June 1: A Million Ways to Die in the West Gets a Little Maleficent

As one of the two big films being released this weekend, Seth MacFarlane brings us his follow-up to 2012's Ted, this time basing this film in 1882 Arizona. This one is called A Million Ways to Die in the West. MacFarlane has quite the fan-base because of his work in television as the creator of [...]

Box Office Predictions, May 23-26 – X-Men: Days of Future Past to mute Adam Sandler’s Blended

This weekend, X-Men: Days of Future Past eyes an opening north of $100 million over the Memorial Day frame. Films similar to this open at $84.2 million. A reason I don't see this being huge, like a $125 million opening, is because X-Men films have generally been on the decline in numbers lately. The opening [...]

Box Office Predictions May 16-18: Godzilla has a Million Dollar Arm

  The big opener this weekend will be Godzilla from director Gareth Edwards (director of the cool, low-budget flick Monsters). It stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Olsen. I'm pretty excited for this one, partly due to a fantastic advertising campaign. It's debuting at nearly 4000 theatres this weekend, working on a budget of $160 [...]

Box office predictions May 9-11: Dorothy has a Mom’s Night Out with a few Neighbors

Neighbors is definitely the new release pick to dominate the box office this weekend. Even This is the End, which had too strange of a premise to attract a huge audience in its opening weekend still made a good $20 million and because of some great word-of-mouth, and because of a smart move by Sony [...]

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Box Office Prediction

The Amazing Spider-Man got some pretty good reviews when it was released in 2012, and it opened to $62 million. I think this sequel will do a lot more than it – because it has a lot more appeal to me because of the stars, and the villains look a lot stronger. Films similar to [...]

Box Office Predictions April 25-27: Brick Mansions, The Quiet Ones and The Other Woman

Quirky title that was too long for a headline: The wife didn't find out about The Other Woman until he took her to one of their many Brick Mansions. It took the wife awhile to find out because he only screws The Quiet Ones. Brick Mansions comes to theatres this weekend, an action thriller that is one of [...]

Captain America: The Winter Soldier box office prediction

This weekend's major new release is Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the third film in Marvel's second phase of films. I've liked both films of Phase Two so far, I thought Iron Man 3 was the most enjoyable of the series, and I liked Thor: The Dark World about the same as 2011's Thor. These films have received [...]

March 28-30 Box Office Predictions: Swear words and Sabotage of biblical proportions

Jason Bateman's Bad Words is one of the new releases coming out this weekend, but it's been in limited release since the 14th of March, and has grossed $837 thousand. It premiered at TIFF back in September, and it looks pretty awesome. Since one of the taglines is "suck my dictionary," I'm really excited. I think [...]
