Fire vs. Water at the Domestic Box Office

7 December 2013 12:17 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Catching Fire’ vs. ‘Frozen’: Weekend box office early estimates (photo: Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’) It’s gonna be a battle to the death between water and fire at the domestic box office. Sorry, couldn’t resist the cheesy lead, but … The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Frozen will be vying for the top spot at the North American box office this weekend, December 6-8, 2013. New entry Out of the Furnace, despite the presence of The Dark Knight‘s Christian Bale, is no competition, after opening to chilly per-theater figures last week. More on Out of the Furnace in a follow-up post. Currently at 4,163 locations, Catching Fire, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth, was the top movie on Friday, grossing $7.5 million according to Nikki Finke‘s early, rough estimates. Despite 3D surcharges, the fact that it’s a more recent release, »

Thg Sequel to Become the This Year's Biggest Success at the Us/Canada Box Office?

1 December 2013 9:59 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Catching Fire’ box office: To surpass Iron Man 3 in North America? (photo: Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’) Thanksgiving was celebrated this past week in the United States. Although the American economy remains in a seemingly never-ending rut, Lionsgate has much to be thankful for, financially speaking: on the weekend of November 29-December 1, 2013, Francis Lawrence’s $110-130 million-budgeted The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth, added another $74.5 million from 4,163 North American locations according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. Even if Lionsgate’s estimates are (once again) off by a couple of percentage points, that’s a remarkable hold for a sequel. In fact, Catching Fire was down only 53% compared to its first weekend, which included $25+ million from Thursday night and Friday midnight screenings. And let’s not forget that the Hunger Games sequel blew off »

Weekend Box Office: Thg Sequel Catching Fire Fails to Surpass Two Nolan-Directed Batman Movies (and More If Inflation Taken Into Account)

25 November 2013 7:22 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Catching Fire’ weekend box office: Record breaker with qualifiers — though a huge success all the same (photo: Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’) For the weekend of November 22-24, 2013, Lionsgate overestimated the domestic box office take of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire by nearly 2%. Doesn’t sound like much? What about $3 million? That figure can make a hell of a difference when we’re talking box office records. In fact, it can be the difference between a movie breaking and not breaking a box office record. All day Sunday heralded as the biggest 2D opening ever in the United States and Canada, the Francis Lawrence-directed Catching Fire actually opened below two movies: Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises (2012) and The Dark Knight (2008). And when inflation is taken into account, as it always should, the The Hunger Games sequel falls behind a couple of other titles as well. »

Catching Fire Seemingly About to Break November Record, Surpassing New Moon (and The Hunger Games)

24 November 2013 12:22 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Catching Fire’ weekend box office: ‘The Hunger Games’ sequel poised for biggest domestic November debut ever? (photo: Jennifer Lawrence and Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’) On Friday, November 22, 2013, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (slightly) surpassed the higher end of early North American box office predictions, pulling in an estimated $70.5 million (including $25.25 million from Thursday evening shows) from 4,163 sites as per Box Office Mojo. Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and Josh Hutcherson, the Francis Lawrence-directed The Hunger Games sequel seems poised to shatter the current November opening-weekend record held by The Twilight Saga: New Moon. But then again, comparisons between the two movies may not be exactly fair; more on that below. Last week, some box office pundits (and, reportedly, Lionsgate Pictures as well) were expecting Catching Fire to open somewhere near Shane Black and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man 3‘s $174.14 million »

Hunger Games Sequel to Surpass Twilight: New Moon, Original Thg Movie?

23 November 2013 2:14 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Jennifer LawrenceCatching Fire’ weekend box office: Surpassing ‘Twilight: New Moon’ for biggest domestic November opening ever? (photo: Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’) Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth, the Francis Lawrence-directed The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, is expected to collect anywhere between $63-$70 million (according to Nikki Finke) and $67.5 million (according to Deadline.com) at 4,163 North American locations on Friday, November 22, 2013. That figure includes an estimated $25.25 million from Thursday evening shows, as found at Box Office Mojo. (Saturday addendum: Catching Fire opened with an estimated $70.5 million. See also: “‘Catching Fire’ Weekend Box Office: Poised to Surpass ‘New Moon,’ ‘The Hunger Games’?”) Early, unofficial weekend estimates have the second installment in the Hunger Games movie franchise grossing anywhere between $140-$150 million in the U.S. and Canada by Sunday evening. Some early prognosticators had Catching Fire soaring much higher, up to Iron Man 3 heights ($174.14 million, »

Hunger Games Sequel Has Near-Record Thursday Debut While Star Lawrence Starts Screaming at NY Premiere

22 November 2013 7:09 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Catching Fire’ movie box office: ‘Midnight’ shows nearly 30% ahead of ‘The Hunger Games’ (photo: Jennifer Lawrence in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’) Francis Lawrence’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, starring Best Actress Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook), Liam Hemsworth, and Josh Hutcherson, raked in a remarkable $25.25 million from evening shows on Thursday, November 21, 2013, in North America (playing at 4,163 locations on Friday), according to estimates found at Box Office Mojo.

Hunger Games Sequel Sells 1 Million Tickets in Brazil: Solid Opening, But Far Behind Breaking Dawn 2 Record

19 November 2013 3:26 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Catching Fire’ movie box office: Strong Brazil opening points to bigger international hit than ‘The Hunger Games’ (photo: Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’) Francis Lawrence’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, toplining Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and Josh Hutcherson, debuted in Brazil last Friday, November 15, 2013. A national holiday ("Proclamation of the Republic"), November 15 has proven to be a highly profitable "opening date" in Brazil; in 2012, Bill Condon’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 broke both single-day and opening-weekend records at the Brazilian box office. Now comes Catching Fire, which far surpassed the box office take of its predecessor. Surely it’s no coincidence that both the Hunger Games and Twilight franchises currently belong to the Summit Entertainment / Lionsgate Pictures combo. Or that both franchises have been/are being distributed in Brazil by Paris Filmes, possibly that country’s biggest homegrown film distribution entity. »
