Box Office Actuals: 'Fury' On Top, 'Birdman' Opens Huge and 'Best of Me' is Worst of the Sparks

8 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Fury dropped only a fraction once actuals came in, topping the weekend box office with $23.7 million. With an "A-" CinemaScore it could push to up around $75 million or so domestically, but I'm not sure I'd hold my breath. It will also be interesting to see how it plays internationally. Having Brad Pitt in the cast certainly helps, but is the international audience all that interested in following an American tank crew through the final days of World War IIc Gone Girl only dropped 33.7% for a strong third weekend result of $17.5 million, just barely topping the animated The Book of Life, which stuck to its $17 million estimate once actuals came in. Then down in fifth is The Best of Me, the worst opening for a Nicholas Sparks adaptation in nine tries, but don't expect that to stop them from making more as both "The Choice" and "The Longest Ride" are already in production, »

Final: ‘Fury’ Wins Box Office War With $23.7M; ‘Book Of Life’ At $17M; ‘Gone Girl’ $100M+; ‘Best Of Me’ $10M – B.O. Final

9 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Final Update, 1:32 Pm: Fury ended the weekend at $23.7M for Sony and Qed, so it underperformed all the tracking (gee what a surprise), social media metrics, and expectations just a little. But it will likely still make money all in after its domestic, international and home entertainment run. I understand that there were significant profit participations on this one. Fox and Reel FX’s The Book Of Life closed the weekend on the high end of our estimate with $17M and will have some playtime again over the next two weekends as no new offerings are in the family zone until Big Hero 6 bows from Disney on November 7. The other newbie, Relativity’s The Best Of Me, was soft with $10M. Gone Girl is now sitting pretty at $106.7M after three weeks in release for Fox and New Regency.

Fury blasts Gone Girl from top of box office

10 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The bloody World War II drama Fury blew past Gone Girl at theatres this weekend.

Gone Girl was tops at the box office for two weeks before Brad Pitt and his rag-tag group of tank mates in Furyblasted the film to second place. Sony's Fury captured $23.5 million in ticket sales during its opening weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. Fox's "Gone Girl" followed with $17.8 million.

The week's top two films are R-rated adult dramas, followed by two PG family films.

"The fall movie season is all about making the transition from PG-13 world of summer to the R-rated, edgier world of the fall and awards season," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for box-office tracker Rentrak.

The animated Fox feature The Book of Life opened in third place with $17 million, followed by Disney'sAlexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day with $12 million.

Were Brad Pitt And Shia Labeouf Really A Couple In Fury?

13 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Many of you packed theaters across the country this weekend to see Brad Pitt lead a small platoon of soldiers across Nazi Germany in David Ayer.s tank drama, Fury. The gritty combat thriller earned enough to hold of David Fincher.s Gone Girl and claim the top spot at the box office. But how many of you watching Fury over the weekend noticed a relationship unfolding on screen that many thought was far more romantic than the one happening next door in the Nicholas Sparks adaptation, The Best of Me? David Ayer has been describing Fury as the "study of a family" (according to HuffPo), only one that happens to live in a World War II tank. Yet, some coming out of Fury noticed a different dynamic between Brad Pitt and the introverted, God-fearing soldier played by Shia Labeouf in the film. Is it possible these two men had »

Ranking Every Nicholas Sparks Movie Couple, from Pathetic to Passionate

17 hours ago | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

While we’ve pretty much established all Nicholas Sparks films are the same, the one factor that truly sets them apart is the chemistry between the lead actors. Sure, we could watch attractive people kissing in the rain, hair blowing in the wind during a slow embrace on the sandy shores of North Carolina all day, but if the passion isn’t there, we ain’t buying it.

As the author’s latest book-to-film venture The Best of Me is currently in theaters, only time will tell where James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan fall on the spectrum of believable couples in Sparks’ movie repertoire.

Of course, not all silver screen couples can be up to par with Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams‘ perfectness in The Notebook. The two couldn’t stand each other at first on set, and they were still the most heart wrenching on screen. Take note from »

Box Office: 'Birdman' and 'St. Vincent' Soar in Limited Release

20 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Michael Keaton and Bill Murray haven't been box office heavyweights for ages, but at the art-house, both men are setting ticket sales on fire, with "Birdman" and "St. Vincent," respectively. During what proved to be a ho-hum weekend for mainstream, wide-release movies, led by Brad Pitt's underperforming "Fury," Keaton and Murray were among the stars packing them in at the indie theaters.

Overall, the North American box office was down 13 percent from last weekend, despite three eagerly awaited new wide releases. PItt's World War II action drama was in the lead, but while pundits had expected it to open as high as $33 million, it finished at an estimated $23.5 million. Despite good reviews, strong word-of-mouth (it earned an A- grade at CinemaScore) and the presence of Pitt, "Fury" did not pull as many older men away from baseball playoffs as expected.

Us Box Office Report – Brad Pitt’s Fury topples Gone Girl with $23.5 million opening

21 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Your Us Box Office Report for w/c 20th October 2014…

Having closed the 58th BFI London Film Festival this past weekend, David Ayer’s World War II tank movie Fury has knocked Gone Girl from the number one spot in a solid weekend for the box office.

Starring Brad Pitt and Shia LeBeouf, Fury took $23.5 million over 3,173 screens, despite the middling reviews from some critics. This puts it on the right path to easily make back its $68 million budget, as it has yet to open anywhere else in the world.

Although having been knocked from its throne at the top of the charts, David Fincher’s Gone Girl had another good weekend at the box office, taking $17.8 million to bring its domestic total to $107 million. Gone Girl is now the fifth most successful movie from Fincher and should overtake Alien3, Panic Room and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, but »

Box Office Weekend: Fury Leads As Box Office Falters

19 October 2014 8:35 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

While nowhere near the doldrums of the September box office, there has been a downward trend to weekend gross the past two weeks, so while Fury may have topped the box office with an estimated $23.5 million it does not have quite the lead Gone Girl (estimated $17.8 million) held when it debuted two weeks ago. In fact, despite the fact that the top three films, including The Book of Life (estimated $17 million) have all received positive press, only Gone Girl has managed to become a domestic success.

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day got a big boost from this weekend, an estimated $12 million enough to make it domestically profitable. Nicholas Sparks, however, may have a certified dud on his hands if things do not pick up for The Best of Me. Poorly received by critics, its estimated $10.2 million is not even half of its $26 million costs. Dracula Untold »

Brad Pitt's Fury and Michael Keaton's Birdman Top Box Office

19 October 2014 7:35 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Brad Pitt's "Fury" war movie took first place at the domestic box office this weekend with $24 million, which is one of the best openings of all time for a World War II film behind "Pearl Harbor" ($59 million), "Inglourious Basterds" ($38 million) and "Saving Private Ryan ($31 million). It's also the highest opening of director David Ayer's career. The new movie, co-starring Shia Labeouf and Logan Lerman, cost $68 million to make and has an 81% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. Thanks to positive reviews, it's expected that "Fury" will have a strong showing overseas, where it begins to roll out next weekend. The animated "Book of Life" movie, voiced by Channing Tatum and Zoe Salanda, ended up in third place with $17 million, which puts it on track to barely earn back its $50 million budget. Internationally, "Book of Life" took another $8.6 million for a worldwide debut of $25.6 million. It has a 79% fresh rating. The »

Weekend Box Office: Fury Fires Way To Number One, The Best Of Me Is The Worst

19 October 2014 5:50 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

$340 million dollars. That's how far behind domestic box office ticket sales are from last year. In fact, sales are so slow they could end up being the lowest in seven years. That will be down to how well the holiday movies fare come December, but until then the usual October doldrums aren't doing much to help. Brad Pitt's WWII tank action drama launched at number one, but at a lower than expected $23 million. Animated Day of the Dead themed The Book of Life narrowly missed a second place debut, hitting $17 million for third place behind the resilient Gone Girl which banked almost $18 million. That movie dropped just 30% going into its third week, crossing the $100 million mark. There wasn't much love or romance for Nicholas Sparks fans this weekend. The Best of Me turned out to be the worst, at least as far as opening weekends go. With a fifth place, »

Brad Pitt’s Fury Beats Gone Girl Over a Weak Box-Office Weekend

19 October 2014 3:13 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In a tepid weekend for the box office, Brad Pitt's World War II epic, Fury, claimed the top spot with $23.5 million, beating back Gone Girl, which brought in $17.8 million for a domestic total of $107 million. Other new releases also had lackluster performances, with the animated The Book of Life bringing in $17 million for third and the Nicholas Sparks adaptation The Best of Me barely coming in fifth with $10.2 million. Steve Carell's family comedy, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, stuck around in fourth with $12 million. More exciting were the films that opened in limited release: Michael Keaton's meta-comeback film Birdman brought in more than $400,000 in just four theaters for the second highest per-screen average this year behind The Grand Budapest Hotel. Justin Simien's buzzy debut film, Dear White People, also connected with audiences, earning $344,000 for a PSA of $31,273. »

'Fury' Topples 'Girl,' 'Birdman' Soars in Limited Release

19 October 2014 1:21 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Brad Pitt's Fury was able to usurp first place from Gone Girl this weekend, though it was a closer race than anticipated.Meanwhile, Birdman opened at four locations in New York and Los Angeles and scored one of the best per-theater averages ever for a live-action movie.Opening at 3,173 theaters, Fury rolled in to first place this weekend with $23.7 million. This debut is in the same general ballpark as movies like Captain Phillips ($25.7 million), Act of Valor ($24.5 million) and The Monuments Men ($22 million). That's a fine range to be in, though it's a bit disappointing considering how far off it is from recent R-rated thrillers Gone Girl ($37.5 million) and The Equalizer ($34.1 million).Sony's marketing played up Fury's intense tank-on-tank action, which made it a strong option among male moviegoers. Unfortunately, the movie never really connected with women, who wound up accounting for just 40 percent of the audience on opening weekend. »

Box Office: 'Fury' wins the war with $23.5 million as 'Birdman' soars in limited release

19 October 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

David Ayers' "Fury" hit theaters hard this weekend and the World War II era drama easily took down two-time champ "Gone Girl" with $23.5 million.  Starring Brad Pitt, Shia Labeouf and Logan Lerman, among others, "Fury" is reported to have cost $68 million.  This writer has heard it actually cost over $100 million, but we'll go with the studio's number at this point.  The one thing everyone can agree on, however, is that "Fury" was fully financed by Qed International and it will need significant international returns to break even.  Considering Pitt's overseas star power that may not be a concern.  "Fury" also marks Sony Pictures third no. 1 opener in a row after Screen Gems' surprise hit "No Good Deed" and Columbia Pictures' "The Equalizer." David Fincher's "Gone Girl" dropped to no. 2, but New Regency and 20th Century Fox are still smiling.  "Girl" surpassed the $100 million mark in just »

Box office report: 'Fury' reaps $23.5 million in a successful debut

19 October 2014 10:10 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Fury flattened all other movies in wide release and is projected to take in around $23 million in its debut weekend in theaters. The Brad Pitt-starring World War II action-drama, set largely within the cramped confines of an M4 Sherman tank rolling across Nazi Germany, comes in at the lower end of pre-release audience tracking expectations. But it caps off a recent run of cinematic success for Pitt (a producer of the multiple Oscar-winning 12 Years a Slave and star of last year’s sci-fi disaster hit World War Z). Fury also features Michael Peña, Shia Labeouf, Jon Bernthal, and Logan Lerman »

Nicholas Sparks’ ‘Best of Me’ Can't Find Love at Box Office

19 October 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Nicholas SparksThe Best of Me” lost at love this weekend at the box office. The $10.2 million opening of the ninth big-screen adaptation from the famed romance author was the lowest ever for an adaptation of his novels, below the $12 million that “A Walk to Remember” debuted with back in 2002. And it wasn't even half the $21 million that his last film, “Safe Haven,” managed in its opening. Relativity Media was standing by its man, however. “We have had great success with Nicholas Sparks over the years and are always glad to be in business with him,” the distributor »

Director David Ayer’s World War II film Fury topped the box office this weekend, dethroning David Fincher’s Gone Girl with a solid $23.5 million.  The unrelentingly brutal Brad Pitt-fronted picture had one of the best openings for a WWII film of all time, placing fourth just behind Saving Private Ryan, Inglourious Basterds, and the current champion Pearl Harbor.  It also marked Ayer’s biggest opening as a director by $10 million, and audiences were satisfied by the finished result as the film netted an A- CinemaScore.  Another of the weekend’s big new releases, the Guillermo del Toro-produced animated feature The Book of Life, pulled in $17 million and landed in third place overall, while the Nicholas Sparks romance The Best of Me scored a mere $10.2 million for fifth place, making it the lowest debut for a Sparks drama ever.

Weekend Box Office: 'Fury' Takes #1, 'Birdman' Soars, Reitman's 'Men, Women & Children' Tanks

19 October 2014 8:26 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Fury took the #1 spot at the weekend box office with ease, bringing in $23.8 million safely topping Gone Girl despite Gone Girl's continually strong hold, this week only dropping 32.6% for $17.8 million, becoming the latest film to cross $100 million at the domestic box office. As for Fury, budgeted at $68 million, the film earned an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, which could signal a strong hold for a couple weekends. That opening, however, fell just outside of the top ten openings for Brad Pitt, coming in 11th just behind The Curious Case of Benjamin Button ($26.8m), which went on to make over $127 million domestically back in 2008. In third is the animated newcomer The Book of Life with $17 million. The animated film produced by Guillermo del Toro also earned an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and opens with almost the exact same result as Laika's The Boxtrolls, which brought in $17.2 million »

Box Office: Brad Pitt’s ‘Fury’ Edges Out ‘Book of Life,’ ‘Gone Girl’

19 October 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Brad Pitt and a squadron of up-and-coming actors held off “Gone Girl” at the multiplexes this weekend as “Fury” topped box office charts with a $23.5 million debut.

Despite surrendering first place after two weeks wearing the crown, “Gone Girl” showed some impressive stamina. David Fincher’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s best-selling mystery dropped just 32% to $17.8 million. Its total now stands at $107.1 million and is striking distance of surpassing “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” ($127.5 million) as Fincher’s highest-grossing domestic release. Water cooler effect achieved.

“It’s one of those movies that it’s so provocative that if you haven’t seen it yet, you have to in order to be part of the conversation,” said Chris Aronson, distribution chief at 20th Century Fox, the studio behind “Gone Girl.” “It’s as simple as that.”
