Holiday boxoffice rings in third-best session of year

28 December 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

During an aberrant four-day weekend at the boxoffice that hadn't been seen in 11 years -- where Christmas Eve, the slowest moviegoing day of the year, fell on Saturday, the busiest moviegoing day of the week -- the total boxoffice for the 77 films tracked by The Hollywood Reporter was $176.4 million. It was the third-biggest weekend of the year behind Memorial Day ($231.8 million) and the opening of Warner Bros. Pictures' Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire ($180.7 million), which bowed Nov. 18. Midweek business should be brisk, and the upcoming New Year's weekend grosses should be in the ballpark of the Christmas session and perhaps greater because there are four full days of solid moviegoing potential. »

German b.o. down in '05 after record year

21 December 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

MUNICH -- Germany will see a double-digit drop in cinema ticket revenues this year, after hitting record highs in 2004, local distributors and theater owners said at a year-end press conference Tuesday in Berlin. They also predicted that 2006 should be a year of more growth. "We are confident that 2005 will end up being a year that is not among the best in history," said Johannes Klingsporn, managing director of the film distributors' association VDF, "but it will certainly not be among the worst." A lack of blockbusters from Hollywood as well as a year in which no local films broke the 3 million ticket mark, were among the factors cited by analysts for the dramatic decline in income. Last year, German films such as Dreamship Surprise and Downfall were among the nation's top grossers. But thanks to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, November 2005 outpaced the same month last year. Meanwhile, Chronicles of Narnia also had a huge first weekend and King Kong is set to premiere in Germany this weekend. »

'Goblet' still holds magic atop weekend's b.o.

5 December 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The teen wizard of Warner Bros. Pictures' Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire worked his magic one more time and claimed the top spot at the boxoffice for the third straight weekend. Goblet fired up $19.9 million this past weekend, advancing the 17-day cume to a sterling $229.3 million. Goblet is the fourth film in the Potter franchise and is running ahead of the previous three films for the same period. The quick influx of green at the boxoffice has likewise vaulted the distributor into first place in the North American market-share race, moving 20th Century Fox into a close second. The first-place reign of Goblet will end this coming weekend as the magic of the young boy wizard makes way for some new magic when Buena Vista's highly anticipated The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe hits theaters. »

'Goblet' tops boxoffice for third week

5 December 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Warner Bros. Pictures' Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire held on to the top spot at the boxoffice for the third consecutive weekend, stirring up $19.9 million in the process. The fourth installment of the Harry Potter franchise is the first film since Universal Pictures' Meet the Fockers, released during Christmas 2004, to hold the No. 1 position for three consecutive weekends. The Mike Newell-directed Goblet has accumulated $229.3 million in 17 days and a staggering $560 million in worldwide boxoffice to date. The latest filmed incarnation from the J.K. Rowling book series still is tracking better than the first three films for the same period. In addition, the quick boxoffice infusion from Goblet has vaulted Warner Bros. into first place in the North American market-share race, with 20th Century Fox now a close second. Paramount Pictures' Aeon Flux was the frame's new only wide release for the weekend. The MTV Films production, financed by Paramount and Lakeshore Entertainment, arrived in the second spot with $12.7 million, which falls at the high end of expectations. But considering the film's estimated $60 million-plus budget, the opening is on the disappointing side. »

'Goblet' tops $332 mil as 'Narnia' set to kick off

5 December 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

With Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire continuing as a potent source of fuel for the overseas boxoffice, the chances of the international market overcoming the gloom and doom that pervaded the industry at mid-year appear better than ever. Unexpected year-end aid -- as foreign multiplexes await the arrival of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe this coming weekend and King Kong the following -- came from Mr. & Mrs. Smith, which reached an international cume of $251.1 million after bringing in $7.9 million from its final offshore openings in Japan and Italy. At the same time, such current offerings as Flightplan, Chicken Little and The Exorcism of Emily Rose, among a few others, are performing sufficiently to help bring this year to "a bright end," said one international distribution executive, who noted that almost every foreign territory last week exceeded last year's results for the same period. Foreign sales executives contend that the international business is doing better than domestic, which, they say, is not coming close to making a comeback. »

Leftovers keep weekend b.o. in 'Flux'

2 December 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The leftover turkey has been turned to soup, the relatives have left, and the holiday shopping season has begun in earnest, all of which signals a historically weak weekend at the boxoffice. Add the fact that Walt Disney Pictures' The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe doesn't open for another week, and business at the multiplex is expected to slow during the coming frame. Paramount Pictures' Aeon Flux is the weekend's lone wide release, but it hasn't been screened for critics -- never a good sign of a picture's playability. So this weekend's leaderboard should look much like last weekend's holiday boxoffice returns; grosses are expected to drop by about 50% for each title. The red-hot Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire should secure a third week at No. 1, while the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line, starring Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon, could hang on to the second spot for the third straight week, depending on the strength of Flux. »

'Goblet' casts strong spell on Chinese b.o.

30 November 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Titanic holds the top spot for a foreign film in China after it grossed 360 million yuan in 1998.

In China, it has outearned Mr. & Mrs. Smith, which has taken in 62 million yuan ($7.64 million) since its June release. »

Hungry wide openers crowd holiday table

28 November 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

With the holiday weekend about to begin, Warner Bros. Pictures' teenage wizard shows no signs of breaking his spell on the boxoffice. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the fourth iteration of the surefire franchise that soared to boxoffice heights in its first frame, will continue to enchant moviegoers this Thanksgiving weekend. On the next rung, two new releases -- Sony Pictures' release of Revolution Studios' Rent and Paramount Pictures' Yours, Mine & Ours -- will try to knock 20th Century Fox's Walk the Line off its well-earned second-place perch. But the Johnny Cash biopic, which earned an additional $2 million Monday, has the benefit of strong reviews and good word-of-mouth, making it a formidable competitor for the No. 2 spot, especially with adult audiences. Sony and partner Revolution are taking a gamble this frame that well-done musicals still can reach mass audiences. A laborious passion project of director Chris Columbus and producers Jane Rosenthal and Robert De Niro, Rent finally has reached the big screen after a decade of development. Scoring high in early reviews, the film is sure to draw fans of the stage production, but whether a musical about AIDS patients, drag queens and drug addicts can connect in red states remains to be seen. The PG-13 film will bow in 2,433 theaters and is looking to lure primarily young women. »

'Harry' conjures up $201 mil in 10 days

28 November 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Magic and music were in the air this Thanksgiving holiday as the young wizard of Warner Bros. Pictures' Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and the man in black from 20th Century Fox's Walk the Line held off six new wide releases to retain the top two spots at the boxoffice for the second consecutive weekend. Goblet of Fire lit up $54.7 million during the weekend and $81.3 million for the five days, advancing the estimated 10-day cume to a stellar $201 million -- reaching that mark in the fourth-fastest time on record. The fourth picture in the Potter franchise is tracking well ahead of the first three films for the same period, besting the $186 million of Sorcerer's Stone, the $148 million of Chamber of Secrets and the $157 million of Prisoner of Azkaban. The three-day weekend boxoffice total for the Mike Newell-directed Goblet was down a relatively modest 47% from its $102.3 million bow. Goblet is the third Warner Bros. release this year to surpass $200 million -- an industry first. The worldwide cume to date for Goblet is a staggering $408.1 million. The well-received Johnny Cash biopic Line stepped into second place with a weekend of $19.2 million, down 14% from its debut, taking in $27.6 million for the five days. The Joaquin Phoenix-Reese Witherspoon starrer from director James Mangold has generated a robust $54 million in 10 days. »

'Goblet' hits $209 million in 11 days of o'seas spurt

28 November 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

As Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire grossed $209 million in 11 days at the overseas market, industry pundits -- who at mid-year were predicting the demise of the theatrical sector -- are dusting off that old saw about "there's nothing wrong with the movie business that good movies can't cure." The early performance of Goblet, which brought in $97.4 million from 9,500 prints in 42 markets on its second weekend, is currently the major force in the industry's effort to make up for a 10%-12% boxoffice skid in the first six months of this year. According to one industry stats maven, every significant territory showed an increase last week compared with the similar period a year ago, with the exception of Australia, Brazil, Japan and Holland. Last year, it was noted, the major studios enjoyed an all-time high at the overseas boxoffice. Expectations for the final five weeks of this year are at fever pitch as the market awaits the December arrival of Disney/BVI's The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Universal/UIP's King Kong. »

'Potter' spell keeps fans mesmerized: $57.4 mil

28 November 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Warner Bros. Pictures' Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and 20th Century Fox's Walk the Line occupied the top two spots for the second consecutive weekend -- fending off six new wide releases in the process -- and led the Thanksgiving session to its second-highest tally on record. The total boxoffice for the 114 films tracked by The Hollywood Reporter was $165.4 million -- up 2% from last year's $162 million. The all-time high for the holiday frame is $176.7 million, racked up during Thanksgiving weekend in 2000 when Universal's How the Grinch Stole Christmas topped the charts. The fourth film in the Potter franchise conjured up $54.7 million on its sophomore frame to place first, down a relatively modest 47% from its sizzling debut. The Mike Newell-helmed Goblet has reached $201 million in 10 days -- the fourth-fastest time to that level ever posted and well ahead of the previous three Potter films for the same period. When Goblet surpassed $200 million, it became Warner Bros.' third release this year to do so -- setting an industry milestone. »
