Does digital data offer indicators that can be used to monitor marketing effectiveness and predict box office success even before awareness turns into intent? Moviepilot — which studies social data and box office trends — analyzes this weekend’s new movies across Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Google (the methodology behind the numbers is laid out in the appendix below) over the seven days leading up to their release, when marketing campaigns should be at their peak.
“Nightcrawler,” Open Road
Moviepilot Prediction: $12 million
Halloween falling on a Friday means a haunting box office weekend, with most movies scared off by the spectre of young audiences hunting for candy rather than cinematic treats. Aside from the re-released “Saw,” one man braving the challenge is Jake Gyllenhaal, who stars in the horror-tinged thriller “Nightcrawler” that looks set to open over $12 million — more than it’s production budget of around $8.5 million.
Gyllenhaal carries the weight of »

Directed by: Steve Pink
Running Time: 1 hr 40 mins
Release Date: February 14, 2014
Plot: Bernie (Hart) and Debbie (Hall) start to hate each other when a highly-sexual relationship gets serious. Meanwhile, their respective roommates Danny (Ealy) and Debbie (Bryant) begin to fall in love.
Who’S It For? Those who like their amount of real-life romance equaled to their sexual comedy, even if the sum is a bit underwhelming. And similarly, those who can look past a terribly made film.
Featuring three main performers from 2012′s Think Like a Man, About Last Night has a few credible moments within its story. With disturbing misfortune, they are amongst an experience of bad filmmaking. For sake of not losing my readership off the bat, I’ll save that tangent for later, and will at least start with what works here. »
