2010 Box Office Winners & Losers: Which Flicks Helped Domestic B.O. Earn $10.5 Billion?

29 December 2010 9:05 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Movies like "Avatar," "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" and "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" contributed to 2009's record-breaking $10.6 billion domestic box office total, and it doesn't look like 2010's crop of flicks will be able to outdo that.

Hollywood Wiretap reports that 2010 has fallen just short of 2009's record-breaking box office intake, finishing the year out with $10.556 billion to its name. You can thank "Toy Story 3" ($415M), "Alice in Wonderland" ($334.2M) and "Iron Man 2" ($312.1M) for that high number, with those three films serving as the top three moneymakers of 2010. "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" ($300.5M) and "Inception" ($292.5M) rank closely behind at fourth and fifth place.

But while 2010 marks only the second time in box office history that full year revenues are past the $10 billion line, it also marks the second lowest attended year of the decade after 2008... and the single lowest summer attendance of any year »

Box-Office Wrap-Up: Dec. 17 - Dec. 19, 2010

19 December 2010 8:08 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Wow, this is one hell of a slow weekend at the cinema. Tron: Legacy is on top as expected, but it's only the smaller indie films that appear to be making any noise worth listening to. Let's break it down. Laremy predicted the #1 movie correctly 7 Weeks In A Row Tron: Legacy Tron: Legacy jumps out of the gates with $43.6 million, a rather unimpressive number that's likely to translate to no more than $150 million domestically. I also have no idea how well this film will play overseas. Is there a large following for Tron around the world?

This result means Laremy was really close with his prediction of $41.41 million, but Oscar Smarty had the best pick in the comments at $42.3, which was one of the lowest predictions out there from the readers. Many guesses were in the $60 million range and some even as high as $75 million. I imagine some of you are quite shocked this morning. »

'Narnia' Fails to Tread Water, 'Tourist' Trips

12 December 2010 10:08 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Few journeyed back to Narnia over the weekend, and few sparks were set off by the coupling of two hot stars. Between the soft debuts of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and The Tourist and the uninspiring holdovers, this holiday season's tepidness continued: overall weekend business was off nearly five percent from the same period last year when The Princess and the Frog led. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader docked with an estimated $24.5 million on approximately 6,500 screens at 3,555 locations (3D showings at 1,989 venues accounted for 54 percent of business). It was hoped that a return to December along with marketing that pushed the first movie's lion, witch and Christian angles and the addition of the 3D illusion would rekindle interest, but the third Narnia mustered a weaker start than fantasy also-ran The Golden Compass, let alone the other Narnias.

Friday Report: Third 'Narnia' Flounders, 'Tourist' Doesn't Sizzle

On Friday, few journeyed back to Narnia and few sparks were set off by two hot stars' coupling. Top Ten business was a touch higher than the same Friday last year but still continued the tepidness of this holiday season. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader docked with an estimated $8.2 million on approximately 6,500 screens at 3,555 locations (3D showings at 1,989 venues accounted for nearly 55 percent of business). It was hoped that a return to December along with marketing that pushed the first movie's lion and witch and the addition of the 3D illusion would rekindle interest, but the third Narnia mustered a weaker start than fantasy also-rans like Eragon and The Golden Compass, let alone the other Narnias. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe pulled in $23 million its first day, while The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian claimed $19.4 million. The Tourist fared relatively better than Narnia, »

10 December 2010 3:00 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

You may remember earlier this month we brought you news on a special Sky Movies Christmas viewer vote to see what films Sky would broadcast on the Sky Movie Christmas Channel/HD.

Review: “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1”

8 December 2010 9:18 PM, PST | ReelLoop.com | See recent Reel Loop news »

The movie directed by David Yates depicts action, adventure and death. The outstanding performances of Daniel, Emma and Rupert combined with the help of wise camera tricks and superb technology took the movie into its box office hit.

The movie involves the death-defying mission of the three grown-ups (namely Harry, Ron and Hermione) to destroy Horcruxes – key to Voldermort’s destruction. The three people have nothing to rely on but their own and their friendship.  The world of wizard has become a dangerous place and battle started when Voldemort’s Death Eaters control the Hogwarts and Ministry of Magic. Voldemort’s desire is to find Harry Potter alive while Harry is searching for the Horcruxes. As he was searching for the secret to Voldemort’s destruction, he discovers the Deathly Hallows which can give Voldemort the greatest power if the legend is true. But Harry has been always prepared to destroy Voldemort. »

‘Black Swan’ soars in limited release, while holdovers tumble and Warrior’s Way fumbles.

5 December 2010 11:31 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Scott Mendelson

hollywoodnews.com: There was but a single new wide-release this weekend, as the weekend after Thanksgiving is a scary time for Hollywood. Few studios are willing to risk dealing with the post-holiday hangover, so this weekend brings just The Warrior’s Way. But we’ll get to that in a minute. First off, Tangled took the box office crown in its second weekend, dropping just a bit less than Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part I, which was enough to score the number one slot. The Disney animated fairy tale grossed $21.5 million, which accounts for a somewhat troubling 56% drop in weekend two. With $96 million in twelve days, getting to $200 million is no longer the sure-thing that I pegged last weekend. Still, the film is Disney’s biggest non-Pixar hit in quite a long time. It’s about $13 million ahead of Chicken Little at the end of its respective weekend, »

Harry Potter and the New Career Path: What Does the Future Hold for Radcliffe, Watson and Grint?

2 December 2010 4:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

So the end really is now in sight. Nine years, seven films and one more due out next year, cinema audiences have followed the exploits of Harry Potter since 2001, watching him and sidekicks Ron and Hermione battle basilisks, dark wizards, giant spiders, dementors, dragons and Severus Snape, amongst the many obstacles that have faced The Boy who Lived.

There is sadness in seeing such a successful and much-loved franchise ending, a series which has always remained thoroughly grounded in its British roots and showcased the talents of some of our greatest thespians in a variety of cameo roles.

But surely no one can more anxious about post-Potter life than the young stars of the films. The cherubic, cute kids presented to the world’s media many years ago are now all adults and facing the tricky prospect of forging a career outside the cosy world of Hogwarts. The path ahead »

World AIDS Day didn't escape Russell Brand's attention today, and although he didn't sign off of Twitter to show his support, he did offer some advice to his followers.

In other tweets, David Slade dismayed over the technical problems that plagued the Spider-Man musical in New York, though he didn't sound all that broken up over what the show's fate might mean for a Hulk musical down the road. Check out his perspective after the jump, where you'll also find David Spade's reactions to the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, Tom Felton's recent golf excursion and a height comparison between Autumn Reeser and Magic Johnson.

Around-the-World Roundup: 'Potter' Continues to Dominate

1 December 2010 1:13 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

After one of the biggest foreign openings ever, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 took a steep drop but nonetheless carried the weekend by a huge margin. In second, Tangled proved its domestic success was no fluke by unleashing huge numbers in Russia.Deathly Hallows Part 1 added $114 million on 19,700 screens in 62 territories for an excellent foreign total of $383 million. According to distributor Warner Bros., that's about the same as Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince territory-to-date total of $381.4 million. The movie's only major debut this weekend came in France, where it scored a 2010-best $20.7 million. The seventh Potter movie didn't fare quite so well in holdover regions, though, as it dropped an average of around 55 percent. In the United Kingdom, it fell 56 percent to $13 million for an impressive ten-day total of $51.9 million, while it was down a lighter 49 percent to $10.3 million in Germany. Its best hold came in Japan, »

WikiLeaks, The Tokyo Earthquake And 'Harry Potter' Reactions In Today's Twitter-Wood

30 November 2010 1:00 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Some Twitter-Wood citizens were shocked after the organization WikiLeaks decided to release U.S. diplomatic cables that they'd obtained over the weekend. Some responded with a total lack of surprise, such as Michael Ian Black, and at least one man just wanted to know if they were aware of where his keys might be.

A Tuesday earthquake in Japan, meanwhile, startled people as well. Olivia Wilde has a theory about why it occurred that you probably hadn't considered, while Tom Felton didn't appear to have experienced an interruption during his grocery shopping because of the quake. Find out what he was looking at in Tokyo after the jump, as well as what Rose McGowan thought of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1," as well as how "Weird" Al Yankovic sees himself.

Tangled and Harry Potter 7 face off over crowded Thanksgiving

28 November 2010 11:39 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Scott Mendelson

hollywoodnews.com: Like a combination of Thanksgiving holidays past, it was a combination of Harry Potter holding down the fort against all newcomers, while a Disney animated property broke out of the gate. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part I still won the three-day and five-day weekend derby, but Disney’s Tangled had a smashing debut that set a record for a three-day opening weekend for a standard Disney cartoon (Ie – not Pixar). The Disney fairy-tale scored $49 million over the Fri-Sun portion of the weekend and amassed a whopping $69 million since opening on Wednesday. Inflation and 3D price-bump aside (56% of ticket sales were for the 3D version), this best the $42 million opening of The Lion King way back in summer 1994 (which was one of the top-five opening weekends ever at the time). It’s also the second-largest Thanksgiving opening weekend in history, behind the $80 million five-day »

'Harry Potter,' 'Tangled' Tower Over Thanksgiving Weekend

28 November 2010 10:38 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Families were out in force as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and Tangled dominated the Thanksgiving box office with a potent one-two punch, followed by Megamind in a distant third. Burlesque, Love and Other Drugs and Faster each posted modest numbers, and overall weekend business was slightly down from the same period last year when The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Blind Side led. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 pulled in an estimated $50.3 million, down 60 percent from last weekend. Its drop was more extreme than the last Thanksgiving Potter, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, which was off 47 percent. Tallying $220.4 million in ten days, though, the penultimate Potter boasted the top-grossing ten-day launch of the series, passing Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince's $201.2 million, and it has gained ground on New Moon, which had $230.9 million by day ten.

For the second weekend in a row Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 heads the weekend box office, taking in an estimated $76.3 million over five days and bringing its ten day domestic total to $220.4 million.  Potter was not the only family film that enchanted over the Thanksgiving holiday: Disney’s Tangled pulled in an estimated $69 million in its five day start, besting many predictions.  Meanwhile, debuts aimed at the adult audience gave new meaning to the term ‘turkey trot.’ Burlesque, Love & Other Drugs and Faster all failed to pass $20 million after five days. Nevertheless, this was the second-highest grossing Thanksgiving on record after Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Blind Side took 2009.
