September 2014 Box Office is Lowest in Six Years

1 October 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

After a welcome reprieve in August, the 2014 box office woes returned in September.Overall domestic box office totaled just $513 million, which is down 11 percent from last year. More importantly, this was the lowest-grossing month at the box office in six years (dating back to September 2008).The abnormally low total can be chalked up to a dearth of content early in the month. As Above/So Below and The November Man were weak late August releases, and the major studios entirely avoided the first weekend of September; the only movie to open wide on that date was Freestyle Releasing's The Identical, which has taken in less than $3 million total. By the time the studios got back in to the game on September 12th, the damage was already done.The month's top performer was The Maze Runner, which tallied $60.2 million through its first 12 days. The young-adult adaptation started with a strong $32.5 million, »

Weekend Report: 'The Equalizer' Scores Fourth-Highest September Debut Ever

28 September 2014 12:50 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Featuring superstar Denzel Washington operating well within his wheelhouse, R-rated action movie The Equalizer had one of the biggest September openings ever this weekend.Meanwhile, The Boxtrolls had an above-average debut for a stop-motion animated movie, though it still wound up slightly behind The Maze Runner's second weekend.Playing at 3,236 theaters, The Equalizer opened to $34.1 million this weekend. That ranks fourth all-time in September behind Hotel Transylvania, Insidious Chapter 2 and Sweet Home Alabama. Among Denzel's movies, The Equalizer's debut ranks third behind American Gangster and Safe House. Lots of factors contributed to this strong debut*a well-managed marketing effort, outreach to Eminem's massive fanbase, etc.*though the real key to the movie's success is the name above the title. Denzel Washington is one of the few bonafide movie stars at the domestic box office; excluding The Great Debaters (in which he played a supporting role), The Equalizer is »

Box Office Final: ‘Maze Runner’ Finds $32.5M; Liam’s ‘Walk’ Limps In With $12.7M; ‘Where I Leave You,’ $11.5M

22 September 2014 2:12 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Final Update, Monday, 2:12 Pm: The fall season is off to a good start, thanks to Fox’s The Maze Runner which opened nicely to $32.5M for the three-day weekend. The next installment of the film, The Maze Runner 2: Scorch Trials, is already set to bow September 18, 2015. While Fox has created another franchise for the industry, Liam Neeson and Universal weren’t so lucky with A Walk Among The Tombstones. The picture didn’t appeal to the female audience — that same demo which helped Non-Stop open to $28.8M earlier this year for the actor. Tombstones ends this weekend with $12.7M. This Is Where I Leave You opened to mediocre numbers after having a less than expected Sunday. It will take in only $11.5M for Warner Bros.

Speaking of franchises, Sony and Denzel Washington hope to launch one next weekend with The Equalizer and those of us who have seen it believe it will happen. »

Weekend Report: 'Maze Runner' Franchise Off to Strong Start

21 September 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

The Maze Runner sprinted to the front of the pack with one of the biggest September debuts ever; add in strong international sales, and a new young-adult franchise was born this weekend.Meanwhile, A Walk Among the Tombstones and This is Where I Leave You fell short of modest expectations.Playing at 3,604 theaters, The Maze Runner opened to $32.5 million this weekend. That's nowhere close to Divergent, though it is bigger than Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief ($31.2 million) and Ender's Game ($27 million).What separates The Maze Runner from those comparisons is its relatively modest budget*it cost just $34 million, or less than half of those movies*and its strong international prospects. Full international details can be found below in the Around-the-World Roundup.As is always the case with young-adult adaptations, The Maze Runner's success can be attributed in part to the strong fanbase that's developed around author James Dashner's book series. »

'Maze Runner' Quick Out of the Gate on Friday

20 September 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

The Maze Runner jumped out to the front of the pack on Friday with $11.25 million. Otherwise, business was relatively quiet: A Walk Among the Tombstones and This is Where I Leave You fell a bit short, while No Good Deed and Dolphin Tale 2 fell hard going in to their second weekends.Playing at 3,604 theaters, The Maze Runner debuted to more than twice as much as recent young-adult misses like The Giver ($4.75 million) and The Host ($5.3 million). Still, it only opened to around half as much as March's Divergent ($22.8 million), which puts it squarely in the middle of the young-adult range.A closer comparison is last November's Ender's Game, which opened to $9.8 million on its way to a $27 million weekend. If The Maze Runner follows Ender's pattern, it will finish the weekend with just over $30 million (a very good result).Opening at 2,712 theaters, A Walk Among the Tombstones took second place with $4.7 million. »

Forecast: 'Maze Runner' on Track for Big First Place Debut

18 September 2014 5:28 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

After a few quiet weeks, business should pick up substantially this weekend. Three major new releases hit theaters, and young-adult adaptation The Maze Runner will likely finish at the front of the pack.Opening at 3,604 theaters, The Maze Runner is the latest attempt to cash in on the young-adult craze that's led to successful franchises like Twilight, The Hunger Games and Divergent.For every hit, though, there's at least two misses: in the past two years, the young-adult graveyard includes Beautiful Creatures, The Host, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and Vampire Academy.Ahead of the weekend, it's pretty clear that The Maze Runner is going to avoid falling in to the latter category. While the existing fanbase is more-or-less on par with other would-be franchises*and much lower than The Hunger Games or Divergent*20th Century Fox has done a good job campaigning to non-readers.Marketing has nicely established the movie's mysterious premise, »

Intl Box Office Final: No. 1 Bragging Rights In China Too Close To Call As ‘Storm,’ ‘Expendables 3′ And ‘Apes’ Fight It Out

15 September 2014 3:01 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

4th Update, Monday, 2:43 Pm Pt: Who was No. 1 this weekend in China? It’s just not clear. Although Warner Bros reported $7.7M this afternoon for Into The Storm, Fox reported $7.64M for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes and it looks like Expendables 3 ended up with $7.5M (according to Rentrak). But China reporting on box office is always a bit sketchy and numbers tend to fluctuate, which may be why another final total for Into The Storm shows it pulled in only $7.16M. Warners is sticking by its $7.7M number (which includes previews). So, to be fair to both parties, it’s really too close to call.

Final grosses are in for Guardians Of The Galaxy and other films including The Maze Runner (which bows in the states next weekend), The Boxtrolls (which won’t bow until September 26 in the U.S.), Dolphin Tale 2, Lucy, Finding Fanny (which »

Box Office: How Did 'No Good Deed' Beat 'Dolphin Tale 2'?

15 September 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

On paper, "Dolphin Tale 2" looked like a stronger box office contender than "No Good Deed." Star-filled, family-friendly, upbeat animal sequel playing on nearly 3,700 screens vs. grim, modest-budget thriller debuting on about 2,200 screens? No wonder pundits predicted an opening around $24 million for "Dolphin" and $17 million for "Deed."

And yet, when Sunday's estimates came in, it was "Deed" boasting a $24.5 million debut and the top slot, while "Dolphin" settled for second place with $16.6 million.

What's behind the upset? A look at how the two films matched up head-to-head in their various elements offers some clues.

Empty Marketplace. Both films were positioned to take advantage of the current box office doldrums. Sure, there were other family films and action movies/thrillers playing, but they were all several weeks old and vulnerable. That said, September is generally not a good time for a family-friendly release (even though the first "Dolphin Tale" opened well »

No Good Deed knocks Guardians of the Galaxy from the top of the Us box office

15 September 2014 12:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The box office weekend was down again from 2013 with last year’s number one, Insidious Chapter 2, taking more than $12 million from this week’s chart topper.

Knocking Guardians of the Galaxy from its four weeks on top is the home invasion thriller No Good Deed starring Idris Elba. Made for around $13, No Good Deed opened in just over 2,000 screens to earn an impressive $24.5 million, making it an instant box office success.

Taking the number two slot is family sequel Dolphin Tale 2 with a decent $16.6 million. While the taking and chart placement is good, it is down on its predecessor which took $19.1 million in less theatres in its opening weekend.

And after four weeks at the top of the chart, the summer’s biggest movie Guardians of the Galaxy falls to third with a taking of $8 million bringing its domestic total to $306 million and its domestic total to $305.6 million. Guardians of the Galaxy »

Weekend Box Office: No Good Deed Hits Number One, Guardians Hits $300M

14 September 2014 5:14 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

After three quiet weeks in a row at number one, Guardians of the Galaxy finally began the usual descent down the charts, but not before crossing the $300 million mark. Already the number one movie of the year so far, that total makes it one of less than fifty movies to ever bank that much money in domestic sales. No Good Deed took the number one spot with $24 million. That's not a notable opening weekend for a PG-13 thriller, but it's a financial success for a movie made on a $14 million budget. Dolphin Tale 2 landed second place with a $16 million debut, down some from the first Dolphin Tale which banked $19 million when it arrived three years ago. James Gandolfini's final feature film The Drop got a quiet start, opening in just over 809 venues. It took in $4 million and sixth place overall, but its $5,000+ per screen total was the second »

'No Good Deed' Has a Good Box Office Weekend

14 September 2014 3:32 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

After four weeks of being at the top, Guardians of the Galaxy is no longer number one.

There's a new movie sweeping the box office this weekend, and it's finally taking the number one spot away from Guardians of the Galaxy. With an opening weekend of $24.5 million, the movie about an unstable escaped convict terrorizing a woman who is alone with her two children is number one this week. Starring Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson, the two are also executive producers on the film. Already surpassing its $13.2 million budget, this thriller is one to beat.

In second, Dolphin Tale 2 made $16.5 million its opening weekend. The team of people who saved, dolphin, Winter's life are back to find her a companion. Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman and Harry Connick Jr. reunite on-screen in this family movie. To compare to the first one, Dolphin Tale performed at $19 million its opening weekend.

Weekend Report: 'No Good Deed' Succeeds, 'Guardians' Passes $300 Million

14 September 2014 1:05 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

No Good Deed easily took first place ahead of Dolphin Tale 2 on another quiet weekend at the domestic box office.Playing at 2,175 locations, the Screen Gems thriller opened to an estimated $24.25 million. That's in the same general range as 2009's Obsessed ($28.6 million), which shared a producer (Will Packer) and star (Idris Elba) with No Good Deed. More impressively, it debuted significantly higher than last year's The Call ($17.1 million), which was also a Sony thriller featuring a female protagonist in a confined location.No Good Deed managed to successfully combine a few key ingredients. First, and most importantly, it was well-positioned within the perennially successful home invasion subgenre. These movies manage to tap in to one of our most common fears (harm to our home/family), while also promising an element of wish fulfillment (taking control and fighting back against these invaders). Another key element to its success was its »

No Good Deed Is Good Indeed At Us Box Office

14 September 2014 10:04 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Though family films are usually a powerful driver at box offices around the world, it appears that America was more keen to embrace a stalkery, occasionally shirtless Idris Elba this week in psycho-thriller No Good Deed, which launched at the top of the box office there according to studio estimates.The film finds Elba as a jailbird recently denied parole who escapes during a transport and ends up at the home of single mother Taraji P. Henson. It earned $24.5 million in its first weekend, already making back more than its production budget and proving that even when he’s being a twisted, dangerous yet charming psycho, Idris Elba can draw them in. While the box office in the States remains in the doldrums, there can still be surprises.Swimming into second place is Dolphin Tale 2, which continues the story of Winter, the real-life dolphin resident in a Florida aquarium who was given a prosthetic tail. »

Box Office: ‘No Good Deed’ Tops ‘Dolphin Tale 2′ With $24.5 Million

14 September 2014 8:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

No Good Deed” topped the box office this weekend and helped reinvigorate a floundering domestic movie business.

The Sony/Screen Gems thriller took in $24.5 million from 2,175 theaters, easily beating expectations. Going into the weekend, analysts expected the home invasion thriller to hover around $20 million. Females made up the bulk of the audience, taking up 60% of the seats in theaters, and 41% of ticket-buyers were under 30 years old.

“It’s not a full reversal of the weakness at the box office, but it’s a step in the right direction,” said Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst at BoxOffice.com. “It’s good to see new films enter the marketplace and do all right.”

No Good Deed’s” success is a feather in the cap of stars Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson, both of whom actively hawked the film on social media.

“They absolutely elevated it,” said Rory Bruer, Sony Pictures’ president of worldwide distribution. »

Idris Elba and Taraji P.

Dolphin Tale 2, from Alcon Entertainment and Warner Bros., came in on the low end of expectations, grossing $16.6 million for a second-place finish. It wasn't able to match the $19.2 million opening of Dolphin Tale in September 2011, never welcome news for a sequel. Dolphin Tale 2, however, did earn an A
