'Incredibles,' 'Bridget' top $100 mil at overseas boxoffice

7 December 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

As Pixar/the Walt Disney Co.'s The Incredibles continues to chalk up wondrous boxoffice numbers in the overseas market, the Mouse House's foreign distributor, Buena Vista International, matched its own industry record of six $100 million-plus films in a single year, a feat accomplished previously in 1997. Over the weekend, the computer animated powerhouse took in $36.3 million from 4,890 screens in 31 countries to raise its international cume to $104.6 million. The bubbling preholiday market opened its arms to Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, which also joined this year's $100 million club ($108.3 million) after tallying almost $17 million from 3,431 screens in 33 markets. Warner Bros. Pictures' animated The Polar Express grossed an estimated $11.3 million from in 25 territories, Alexander captured an estimated $6.2 million from about 14 markets, National Treasure delivered $5 million from 7 countries, The Forgotten nabbed $4.5 million from 44, and Christmas With the Kranks took in $3.8 million from 15 countries. »

'Treasure' adds $17 million more to its chest

6 December 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

It was a case of boxoffice Deja Vu this weekend in North America as the same five films from the previous session -- with just a slight shifting of positions -- were sitting atop the charts. The familiar list of family-targeted titles continued to dominate, due primarily to the lack of any new wide releases. Sony's Closer, an R-rated drama from director Mike Nichols, was the only film to open with anything close to a wide release and had a promising debut in the sixth slot from just 476 theaters. Buena Vista's National Treasure held the top spot for the third consecutive weekend, only the third film to do so this year, taking in an estimated $17.1 million. The Nicolas Cage starrer slipped 47% in its third frame, taking its cume to date for the Jon Turteltaub-helmed Treasure to $110.2 million in 17 days. The PG-rated film is the 18th release in 2004 to top the $100 million mark and the 46th picture to do so for the distributor. Sony's Christmas With the Kranks leapt from the third spot a week ago into the second spot this weekend, unwrapping a merry estimate of $11.7 million. The PG-rated comedy from Revolution Studios, starring Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis, dipped 46% in its sophomore frame. The total to date for the Joe Roth-directed picture reached $45.5 million after 12 days. »

Final boxoffice: 'Treasure' bests with $32.2 million

29 November 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Films aimed at the family were spinning gold at the boxoffice in North America, with the top five films all appealing to that audience and between them contributing an impressive $118 million to what will be the second-biggest three-day Thanksgiving weekend on record. But in a disappointing debut, the expensive R-rated Alexander from Warner Bros. Pictures and Intermedia could only conquer sixth place. Buena Vista dominated the weekend's top two spots -- marking the first time in 19 months a single distributor has done that and the first time ever during the Thanksgiving weekend, according to Monday's final figures. National Treasure was in first place with $32.2 million -- down a meager 9% from its debut, taking the 10-day total for the Nicolas Cage starrer to a stout $87.3 million. Pixar's The Incredibles placed second with $23.6 million, off a scant 11% in its fourth frame, moving its total to date to a sterling $214.3 million. It's the distributor's 10th film to surpass the $200 million milestone. Sony's Christmas With the Kranks, from Revolution Studios, opened with a solid $21.6 million to place third. Revolution topper Joe Roth helmed the comedy, starring Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis, which has garnered $30.8 million since its Wednesday opening, despite being poorly reviewed. »

Christmas Films in Name Mix-Up

13 April 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Bosses at Revolution Studios are brainstorming new titles for their movie adaptation of John Grisham's novel Skipping Christmas - because they've been informed they can't use the name. Bosses at the Motion Picture Association Of America have ruled the title is too similar to Ben Affleck's new Dreamworks film Surviving Christmas, which is also released this November. Revolution partner Joe Roth has also been denied the name John Grisham's Skipping Christmas, according to trade paper Daily Variety. »
