Box Office: ‘I, Frankenstein’ Delivers Dismal $8.3 Mil, While ‘Ride Along’ Injects Life Into Sluggish Frame

26 January 2014 9:04 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

While Lionsgate’s “I, Frankenstein” failed to spark audience interest, delivering a dismal estimated $8.3 million in three days, the domestic box office still saw some signs of life, thanks to solid holds from such films as Universal pair, “Ride Along” and “Lone Survivor,” which led with $21.3 million and $12.6 million, respectively.

In its second outing, “Ride Along” fell just 49%, lifting its Stateside cume to a sizable $75.4 million; while “Lone Survivor,” which dropped just 43% in its fifth frame, reached $93.6 million domestically.

The B.O.’s remaining top holdovers also helped boost totals: Open Road’s soph-sesh toon “The Nut Jub” estimated $12.3 million (down just 38%), for a Stateside total of $40.3 million. Meanwhile, Paramount’s “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” held its own after a somewhat disappointing domestic opening last weekend, grossing $8.8 million through Sunday, off 43%, with a cume of $30.3 million and counting.

Overall, domestic box office came in at a little over 3% ahead of this time last year, »

Box Office: 'I, Frankenstein' DOA With $8.3 Million; 'Ride Along' Still No. 1

26 January 2014 7:57 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Stuart Beattie's  I, Frankenstein quickly faltered in its North American debut, eking out a sixth-place finish with $8.3 million. Starring Aaron Eckhart, the $65 million genre epic reimagines the classic literary character as an action hero. Holdovers Ride Along and Lone Survivor easily stayed at No. 1 and No. 2 with $21.2 million and $12.6 million, respectively, in a double victory for Universal. Frankenstein was financed and produced by Lakeshore Entertainment, with Lionsgate releasing and marketing in North America. Lionsgate, which only put up a small portion of the budget, has limited financial exposure. Adapted from Kevin Grevioux's

Box Office: ‘I, Frankenstein’ Dead on Arrival with $7.7 Million

25 January 2014 8:42 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It looks as though “I, Frankenstein” is deteriorating before our very eyes.

Pre-weekend projections had Lionsgate’s horror-inspired actioner in the mid-teens this weekend. That was reigned back to $10 million midday Friday, and now its total looks even grimmer: about $7.7 million, well shy of double digits.

“I, Frankenstein” cost a reported $65 million to produce, not including the marketing costs that producer Lakeshore Entertainment wound up assuming, thus limiting Lionsgate’s exposure on the likely flop. Of its $2.8 million Friday haul, roughly 60% came from 3D engagements, which is slightly higher than usual for the format. It’s expected to land in sixth overall at the domestic marketplace by Sunday’s end.

With “I, Frankenstein” the only wide opener this frame, several holdovers are left to take up the slack — including Universal’s “Ride Along,” which just broke the Martin Luther King holiday weekend record with $48.6 million in four days. The laffer »

Box Office: ‘I, Frankenstein’ Scary Low with $10 Million; ‘Ride Along’ Rolls

24 January 2014 5:13 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate’s launch of “I, Frankenstein” was clinging to life at about $3 million for Friday and appeared heading for a $10 million weekend at the U.S. box office. The fantasy-actioner, set in a dystopian world, has generated dismal reviews with a 3% “fresh” rating on the Rotten Tomatoes site.

“I, Frankenstein” stars Aaron Eckhart in a battle between gargoyles and demons and is directed by Stuart Beattie from his own script, based on the graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux. Lakeshore financed the $65 million project.

Meanwhile, Universal’s second weekend of cop comedy “Ride Along” is heading for a second-consecutive victory with as much as $20 million for the weekend.

Early Friday’s figures for the Ice Cube-Kevin Hart vehicle projected in the $5.5 million to $6 million range in its eighth day of release to push the cume to around $60 million.

Box Office Preview: 'I, Frankenstein' No Match for Holdover 'Ride Along'

23 January 2014 12:59 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Universal's Kevin Hart and Ice Cube buddy cop comedy Ride Along should have no trouble staying at No. 1 in its second weekend, beating new genre entry I, Frankenstein with a gross north of $20 million. Ride Along scored the top opening of all time for the long Martin Luther King Jr. weekend ($48.6 million) and cements Hart's rising star status. The pic's total was $52.5 million through Wednesday. Frankenstein, reimagining the classic literary character as an action hero, is expected to open in the $10 million to $12 million range, a so-so start considering the movie's
