6/27/2016 – Box Office Breakdown

Three new movies in the top five yet NONE OF THEM were able to take down the blue fish known as Dory.

Geek for E_Box Office Breakdown

  1. Finding Dory – just keeps swimming in the top spot for the second week.
  2. Independence Day: Resurgence (New) – twenty years after the original, ID:R is back to show that the aliens were always going to come back.
  3. Central Intelligence – The Rock and Kevin Hart are staying strong against stiff competition.
  4. The Shallows (New) – a surfer and a shark meet at a rock and no one cares.
  5. Free State of Jones (New) – went the Civil War route on this one but forgot one thing…the only “Civil War” people wanted to see had Captain America and Iron Man.

News and Notes:

  • Sequels are the remaining top 10 movies: The Conjuring 2 (6th), Now You See Me 2 (7th), X-Men: Apocalypse (8th), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (9th), Alice Through the Looking Glass (10th). This has bee a summer of sequels up till now.

6/13/2016 – Box Office Breakdown

The top three are all brand new! I think that shows that people were out to the movies this past weekend. Minus one movie, the remaining four of the top five are all sequels.

Let’s begin:

  1. The Conjuring 2 (new) – Magically took the top spot and nearly doubled the next two in ticket sales.
  2. Warcraft (new) – Based on the very large interactive online game. Didn’t do as bad as some predicted it would.
  3. Now You See Me 2 (new) – Got a great review at Geek for E.
  4. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows – Horrible return on investment in week number two; dropped almost 60% in ticket sales.
  5. X-Men: Apocalypse – It is what it is….not much else to say.

News and notes:

  • The Jungle Book (2016 live version) is still in the top 10 and has been out for nine weeks. I think it has some longevity there.
  • Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and The Nice Guys are both four weeks in release and four weeks of dropping returns in sales.  The same is true of Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping after two weeks of release. I think we can say that all three are a bust at the box office.

I hope you all have a great week. Remember to leave a comment either here on the site or on our Facebook page.

6/6/2016 – Box Office Breakdown

Back for another week, the event that all have been asking for, I bring you the Box Office Breakdown!

Geek for E_Box Office Breakdown

  1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (new) – The Turtles are back….along with April and Casey Jones! Not a bad performance in the box office to take the number one spot this week.
  2. X-Men: Apocalypse – The X-Men are back….along with Magneto and Apocalypse (now with less Ivan Ooze). Second week out and had a giant drop in sales by 66% from last week.
  3. Me Before You (new) – So…um…..anyone know what this one is about and why it’s even here? Out for a week and made the third spot, it will drop fast over the next week.
  4. Alice Through the Looking Glass – Alice may want to stop visiting Wonderland as this movie is dropping faster then a brick off of a building. Time for Disney to put a fork in this franchise because it is DONE!
  5. The Angry Birds Movie – Hey, its still hanging in there so three weeks out and still top five is a good sign. The box office drop….not so much.

News and notes:

  • Andy Sandberg and the Lonely Island Boys have a movie out there called Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping and it premiered in the eighth spot. Maybe these spoof movies are only good on HBO or in short-spots on SNL because the full length movie business isn’t working out.
  • Zootopia will be out on on Blu-Ray and Digital Media soon so says the commercial I saw this morning. Still making money 14 weeks since release date.
