'Pirates' still in record business

21 August 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

In its seventh consecutive weekend as the top-grossing film internationally, the Walt Disney Co.'s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest continues to notch significant records, becoming Disney's biggest release of all time, the 12th highest-grossing title ever released abroad and the industry's sixth-ranked worldwide hit of all time. With a weekend estimate of $25.5 million from 6,222 screens in 51 territories, Dead Man's Chest pushed its international gross total to $522.7 million. Its worldwide cume stands at $923.8 million, pushing it above the $866.9 million worldwide gross of Disney's previous record holder, 2003's Finding Nemo.

'Pirates' continues global domination

30 July 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The Walt Disney Co.'s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest this weekend rounded out a full month as the No. 1 overseas hit, supplanting its predecessor as the 25th-biggest worldwide boxoffice smash in industry history. The international take for the frame was an estimated $55 million from 7,698 screens in 40 territories, pushing the film's international boxoffice total to $305.5 million. Combined with its domestic cume to date of $358.4 million, Dead Man's Chest notched a worldwide boxoffice total of $663.9 million -- $8.9 million more than the $655 million recorded by 2003's Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. A third installment, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, is expected in May. Dead Man's Chest also becomes the fourth-largest-grossing film on a worldwide basis ever released by Disney, trailing 2003's Finding Nemo, 1994's The Lion King and last year's The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. »

Sony, Sandler 'Click' at top as 'Cars' cruises to 2nd

26 June 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Sony's Click controlled the boxoffice in North America this past weekend with a $40 million debut and the top spot. While the Adam Sandler starrer easily topped the charts at the boxoffice, the opening proved to be the fourth best for the comedian. On the flip side, the debut was Sandler's fifth film to open to $40 million or more. Columbia Pictures and Revolution Studios produced the PG-13-rated film, helmed by Frank Coraci, about a man who finds a television Remote Control that controls his life. Buena Vista's animated Cars found some traction at the boxoffice on its third lap in theaters, pulling into the pit in the second spot with $23.3 million -- some $800,000 better than early estimates. The G-rated Pixar film dropped a mild 31% from a week earlier, advancing the total cume to date to $156.7 million. Cars still lags The Incredibles and Finding Nemo at this same point of release, but just edged out Monsters, Inc., which had grossed $156.3 million by the end of its third weekend. »

Disney/Pixar's 'Cars' laps field with $60 mil opening

13 June 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

While Buena Vista's Cars took its first lap at the boxoffice in the top spot this weekend, the seventh film from Pixar had less horsepower on opening weekend than the previous three releases from the highly esteemed animation company. Cars pulled into first place this weekend with $60.1 million, slightly less than the $62.8 million that was projected early Sunday morning. It's a well-known fact that the vast majority of films open woefully short of $60 million, but even so, Pixar has carved out an enviable track record through the years. But the company's last three films, The Incredibles ($70.5 million), Finding Nemo ($70.3 million), and Monsters, Inc. ($62.6 million), each opened better than Cars. Among all animated films, it was the seventh-biggest opening weekend of all time, and it was the fourth-best debut of the seven Pixar pictures. »

'Cars' laps the competition

13 June 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

On its first lap in North American theaters, Buena Vista's Cars from Pixar put the pedal to the metal and as expected easily crossed the finish line in first place, cruising into the winners circle with an estimated $62.8 million -- the fifth-biggest opening of all-time for an animated film and third best for Pixar. But while the bow of the seventh picture from team Disney/Pixar proved a company best for the distributor in June, and a personal best for director John Lasseter and voice-over stars Owen Wilson and Paul Newman, it fell short of the debuts of the previous two Pixar releases. The Incredibles opened with $70.5 million and Finding Nemo swam off with $70.3 million -- the second- and third-biggest animated openings ever, respectively. DreamWorks' Shrek 2 owns the title for the largest animated opening in history with a staggering $108 million. Universal's surprise summer hit, The Break-Up, moved into the second spot with an estimated $20.5 million. The Vince Vaughn-Jennifer Aniston starrer, from director Peyton Reed, slipped a middling 48% on its sophomore frame, carrying the 10-day cume to an estimated $74.1 million. »

'Cars' has Disney on side of road

12 June 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Shares of the Walt Disney Co. took an early swoon in trading Monday before partially recovering as Wall Street decided that the $62.8 million weekend opening of Cars amounted to an underperformance and investors digested an analyst downgrade. Many analysts had been expecting Cars to match the boxoffice of previous Disney-Pixar collaborations The Incredibles and Finding Nemo in its opening-weekend bow, though in both cases Cars fell more than $7 million short. That Cars is the first release of a Disney-Pixar film since the former acquired the latter means the film is under even more scrutiny than it would have been, some observers said. Disney acquired Pixar for $7.4 billion last month. Before its opening, many on Wall Street had anticipated a $270 million domestic run for Cars, though some Monday were predicting a bit less. »

'Ice Age 2' int'l ruler with $94.7 mil

11 April 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

In Germany, Ice Age 2: Meltdown provided a blockbuster hit that lifted the local industry out of the worst boxoffice slump in a decade; in the U.K., it was the second-highest opening ever for an animated film (after Shrek 2); in France, it also was the second-biggest animated bow ever (after Finding Nemo); in Switzerland, it was the biggest industry opening ever; and in Mexico, it became the industry's biggest second weekend of all time. And on and on it goes, as Ice Age 2 set all sorts of records in its second week in the overseas market, taking in a mighty $94.7 million from 8,305 screens in 49 markets for an international cume to date of $157.8 million. Ice Age's performance this past weekend practically drove the rest of the competition into extinction, but at the same time it was hailed as a sign that the offshore boxoffice is emerging from a slump. "What happened to 'Ice Age' is good for everybody," said a leading international distributor. "If people enjoy movies, they'll go to more movies." »

Pixar Q4 down but tops Street

8 March 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Pixar Animation Studios, which Tuesday reported its quarterly earnings probably for the last time before becoming part of the Walt Disney Co., beat its own guidance and the expectations of Wall Street analysts. Leaning heavily on home video and worldwide TV rights to Finding Nemo as well as on consumer products and global DVD sales of The Incredibles, Pixar posted a fourth-quarter profit of $30.9 million on $55.6 million revenue. While down from year-ago results of $55.2 million earned on $108.9 million revenue, analysts had expected Pixar to post earnings of only $20.8 million on $44.7 million in revenue. »
