Box Office: ‘Wonder Woman’ Lassoes $38 Million Opening Night

3 June 2017 8:33 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Wonder Woman” isn’t just saving the world this weekend, the Gal Gadot comic book adaptation is also attempting to rescue the entire DC Extended Universe. Luckily for Warner Bros., the Patty Jenkins-directed epic is still flying its invisible plane toward a $100 million opening weekend.

After lassoing an impressive $11 million in Thursday night previews alone, “Wonder Woman” took in another $38 million from 4,165 theaters during its domestic debut on Friday. With strong word of mouth and an impenetrable A CinemaScore, it’s very likely the Gadot and Chris Pine actioner could end Sunday as the third movie to open above $100 million in 2017, behind “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2.” and “Beauty and the Beast.” That number would also give Jenkins the top domestic debut weekend for a film directed by a woman. Sam Taylor-Johnson’s “Fifty Shades of Grey” previously held that distinction with an opening weekend gross of $85 million in Feb. »

Box Office: ‘King Arthur,’ ‘Snatched’ Both Fall Short of ‘Guardians 2’

13 May 2017 8:40 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is on track for its second straight box office win with Friday night pulling in $16.4 million at 4,347 theaters despite debuts from both “King Arthur” and “Snatched.” It is expected to amass a total of $63.5 by weekend’s end.

Saturday estimates show Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn’s “Snatched” through 20th Century Fox barely beating Warner Bros.’ “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” starring Jude Law and Charlie Hunnam this mother’s day weekend. “Snatched” took in an estimated $5 million from 3,501 theaters Friday night. “King Arthur” managed to attract a slightly higher number of $5.3 million from 3,702 theaters, but it is still projected to place third after tallying the three day totals.

Snatched” is expected to make $16 million from its premiere while “King Arthur”‘s potential numbers continue to fall — it »

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Crushes Weekend Box Office with $145M

7 May 2017 1:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For the third year in a row, Marvel kicks of the summer movie season with a new superhero sequel. In 2015, Marvel Studios unleashed Avengers: Age of Ultron in the first weekend in May, with Captain America: Civil War kicking of the summer movie box office season last year. This year, the studio unveils Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which had no trouble surpassing its predecessor Guardians of the Galaxy ($94.3 million) with an opening weekend haul of $145 million. While the opening weekend is certainly a strong one, it did come slightly under projections.

Back in March, box office analysts predicted a $160 million box office opening weekend for Guardians 2, but it came in slightly under those projections. Still, the $145 million estimate, courtesy of Box Office Mojo, is a solid start to the summer movie season, with the movie earning an impressive $33,368 per-screen average from 4,347 theaters. Still, it falls far below The »

Box Office: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Rockets to No. 1 With $145 Million

7 May 2017 8:05 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

And just like that, Star-Lord and his band of super buddies are back on top of the box office.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” blasted into domestic theaters this weekend to kick off the summer box office to the tune of $145 million at 4,300 locations. The latest from Disney and Marvel was expected to make $140 million, but possibly more by some analysts considering the studio’s track record and enthusiasm that the first go-around generated.

Returning to deliver more bright colors, wise-cracks and another groovy soundtrack, James Gunn directed and scripted the movie starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper as the titular guardians. The film also features expanded roles for Karen Gillan and Michael Rooker, as well as prominent new characters played by Kurt Russell and Pom Klementieff. The movie functions as an escape thriller, »

Box Office: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Dominates With $140 Million

6 May 2017 8:07 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is dominating domestic moviegoing with about $140 million at 4,347  North American locations for its opening weekend, estimates showed Saturday.

The Disney-Marvel tentpole is kicking off the summer box office solidly — although the figure is coming in slightly lower than recent forecasts, which had pegged the launch above $150 million. Disney has been projecting the figure in the $140 million to $150 million range.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” accounted for about 85% of Friday’s total box office with $56.3 million (including Thursday’s previews).

It’s the second biggest launch weekend for a 2017 movie after “Beauty and the Beast,” which opened with $174.8 million on March 17-19, and the fifth largest opening for a Disney-Marvel film after “The Avengers,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Captain America: Civil War,” and “Iron Man 3.”

5 May 2017 8:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Will Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Smash All Marvel Box Office Records?

2 May 2017 10:59 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For the last two years (and four of the last five years) Marvel has kept a foothold on the first weekend in May, which kicks off the summer movie season. The studio still holds the May record for the biggest opening with The Avengers' $207.4 million debut, but their most recent May hits, 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron ($191.2 million) and last year's Captain America: Civil War ($179.1 million) have fallen just short of that mark. This year, the studio releases Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which is the only movie opening in wide release this Friday, and will definitely hit quite huge, getting the summer season off to a great start. But it may still fall short of The Avengers' all-time Marvel record, opening with a predicted $181.7 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that Marvel is planning on rolling out Guardians 2 in approximately 4,200 theaters, which falls in line with the rollout of the last few Marvel blockbusters. »

The incredibly well-reviewed Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 has debuted at the top of the UK box-office over the bank holiday weekend and instantly became the second biggest opening film of the year.

Mulan: can it work as a live-action movie?

29 April 2017 7:21 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Katie Smith-Wong May 31, 2017

With plans afoot for a live action take on Mulan, we look at the challenges facing Disney...

After more than 50 years of making animated features, Disney have now turned their attention to live-action adaptations of their famous films. After releases such as 101 Dalmatians (1996), Maleficent (2014) and Cinderella (2015), the studio's new creative direction has earned critical acclaim and financial success.  It is also making its mark on the global box office, as the recently released Beauty And The Beast remake has earned small change in the region of $1.2bn and counting.

Among the upcoming remakes planned is Mulan, which already has fans of the 1998 Disney film debating about its faithfulness to the animated feature. That's especially so given reports about director Niki Caro's indecisiveness regarding the inclusion of songs such as Honour To Us All and I'll Make A Man Out Of You, as well as the »
