The Revenant brought $24.6 million this past weekend, thanks in part to solid debuts in Spain ($4 million) and Brazil ($2.2 million), as well as strong holdovers across the board. […]

It's President's Day weekend, and last year it was the R-rated Fifty Shades of Grey dominating all things box office with a record-smashing $85.1 million opening that bumped up to $93 million for the four-day. This weekend brings a different kind of R-rated heat to the box office in the form of the superhero feature Deadpool, which won't likely top Fifty Shades' record, but that doesn't mean it isn't looking to perform in a big way. Additional new releases include the romantic comedy How to be Single and the fifteen-years later sequel, Zoolander 2, both of which will battle for a distant second. Arriving in a big way this weekend, Fox's Deadpool will hit 3,558 theaters with its sights set on settling among the top ranks of R-rated comic book adaptation opening weekends. The list is currently topped by 2007's 300 with $70.8 million, followed by 2009's Watchmen with $55.2 million. The film is looking at »

“Deadpool,” the Fox action film starring Ryan Reynolds as the Marvel Comics superhero with a boulder on his shoulder, is expected to dominate the Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day weekend box office and could hit $70 million. Fox’s projections are about $10 million lower, but analysts see Marvel’s first hard-r-rated superhero movie cruising past “Kung Fu Panda 3” and the two other films opening wide this weekend, “Zoolander 2” and “How to Be Single.” Paramount’s Ben Stiller fashion comedy will finish in the mid- to high-$20 million range for the four days, while Warner Bros.’ ensemble romantic comedy starring Rebel Wilson and Dakota. »

After seeing his once-white hot career flicker at a low ebb, diminished by flops such as “R.I.P.D.” and “Green Lantern,” the actor seems to have rediscovered his mojo. “Deadpool,” a very R-rated comic book adaptation about a wise-cracking mercenary, is on track to do as much as $70 million over the four-day President’s Weekend when it opens in more than 3,540 locations. Fox, the studio behind the picture is being more conservative, pegging a debut between $60 million to $65 million.
Whatever the final result, “Deadpool” has a very strong chance of enjoying the second biggest President’s Weekend launch in history, behind only “Fifty Shades of Grey’s” $93 million debut. It should also be a boon to Reynolds. The actor played Deadpool in 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” and has been agitating for a standalone adventure for some time. The picture got »

Kung Fu Panda 3 fell 48.5% to $21.2 million, which was more than enough to secure another weekend on […]
Read Box Office: Kung Fu Panda 3 Tops Super Bowl Weekend on Filmonic.
In the past few years, February has gone from a month that rarely features any box office hits, to a viable frame to open big blockbusters. Recent hits like The Lego Movie, Fifty Shades of Grey and Kingsman: The Secret Service have proved that fans will brave the elements and head to the theaters in droves for the right movie, and this year is no different, with three new releases arriving this weekend, all of which are slated to take in more than $20 million, according to the projections at Pro.BoxOffice.com. The big runaway winner, though, is expected to be the superhero adaptation Deadpool, which could come close to making box office history, although Zoolander 2 and How to Be Single are expected to perform well also.
Last month, analysts started tracking this blockbuster-to-be, predicting that its opening weekend could be anywhere between $55 million and $60 million. The movie has »

That pushed it past $325M worldwide and saw it outmaneuver last weekend’s champ, Kung Fu Panda 3, and its $23M frame. KFP3 had the benefit of a day-and-date U.S.-China release last frame and quickly passed $100M in the Proc this session, a milestone that 20 movies, Hollywood and Middle Kingdom combined, met and exceeded last year.

The Carolina Panthers weren’t the only big losers this Super Bowl weekend.
New releases such as “Hail, Caesar!,” “The Choice,” and “Pride & Prejudice & Zombies” failed to connect with moviegoers, sending ticket sales tumbling 8% from last year’s Super Bowl period. Total revenue topped out at $93.5 million, down from $101.8 million in 2015 when “American Sniper” racked up $30.7 million, according to ComScore. Final numbers have yet to be released so the results could change slightly.
Thanks to the continued success of “Kung Fu Panda 3,” which generated $21 million in its sophomore weekend, overall ticket sales did trump the Super Bowl weekends of 2014 ($86.1 million) and 2013 ($88.7 million), although they trailed 2012, when “Chronicle” and “The Woman in Black” combined to lift sales to nearly $116 million.
“Hail, Caesar!” fared the best among new releases, making $11.4 million, but “The Choice,” an adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ romance novel, and “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” a horror comedy for »

While many may have skipped the theater on Sunday to catch the Super Bowl (as evidenced by the lowest box office earning weekend of the year), there is still a handful of debuts that tried their best to catch an audience. Critics are finding mostly good things to say about the latest Coen Brothers film, Hail, Caesar!, and though it did middling against its $22 million budget by opening in second place with an estimated $11.4 million, it could not come close to taking the crown from Kung Fu Panda 3. While an estimated $21 million has brought the latest animated adventures of Po and company to $69.1 million domestically, foreign box office is almost double that amount.
The Revenant and its estimated $7.1 million may be showing signs of slowdown, but with a worldwide gross of $326.1 million it proved a definite winner, while Star Wars: The Force Awakens broke another record with its estimated $6.9 million, »

comScore released the official box-office results for this past with the number one film worldwide going to 20th Century Fox and Dreamworks Animation's "Kung Fu Panda 3" for a second weekend in a row with $44.0 million. The film stars Jack Black, Bryan Cranston, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, J.K. Simmons, Kate Hudson, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu and David Cross.
20th Century Fox's Oscar-frontrunner "The Revenant" starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy took second place worldwide with $31.1 million. Shoebox's "A Violent Prosecutor" rounded out the top three films worldwide with $19.5 million.
"Kung Fu Panda" scored the number one spot at the Us box-office as well with $21.0 million. Universal Pictures' "Hail, Caesar!" starring George Clooney and Josh Brolin debuted at second place with $11.4 million. The ensemble comedy, directed by Joel and Ethan Cohen, also stars Ralph Fiennes, Scarlet Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Francis McDormand, Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum and Elden Ehrenreich. »

Acclaimed follow-up to Inside Llewyn Davis takes just $11.4m on opening – the Coen brothers’ lowest ever debut for a film on wide release
Its cast includes George Clooney, Josh Brolin, Ralph Fiennes, Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Frances McDormand and Tilda Swinton. Critics have called it a brilliant paean to Hollywood’s golden age. But the Coen brothers’ new period comedy, Hail, Caesar!, has bombed at the Us box office, with the lowest opening haul of any major release in the Oscar-winning duo’s career.
Up against the continuing might of animated sequel Kung Fu Panda 3, as well as fellow debutants including romantic drama The Choice and horror-comedy Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the 50s-set tale of a major film star gone missing scored just $11.4m (£7.9m) to open in second place. The Coen brothers’ previous lowest bow for a film in wide release – usually estimated at around 2,000 cinemas – was »

For the second week in a row, Kung Fu Panda 3 martial arts-ed its way to the top of the box office, martial art-ing the Coen Brother's Hail, Caesar! in its Golden Age Hollywood face. Panda made $21 million, bringing its domestic total up to $69 million, while the Coens' comedy made $11.4 million, a little more than half of its $22 million budget. The Revenant, which snagged a Best Director DGA Award like a bear in a trap, made $7.1 million in its 7th week, for a cume of $149.7 million. Star Wars: The Force Awakens slacked in its 8th week, only making $6.8 million for a paltry $905.9 million domestic cume. (The film took 52 days to break $2 billion worldwide.) The week's other two major debuts, The Choice and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, didn't set the box office on fire. The Nicholas Sparks romance made $6 »

As much a distraction as the Super Bowl is, the two biggest days of the weekend fall before. Studios tend to avoid the date, but that doesn't mean there isn't business. While this weekend's numbers are average for the time period, the results are unsettling because the three new releases all fell short of what similar films usually do. "Kung Fu Panda 3" repeated at the top and helped stabilize an otherwise uneven period. But if 2016 is going to continue its early year pickup from a respectable 2015, it needs to improve quickly. Through Sunday, year to date totals are flagging slightly behind the same date last year. The Top Ten 1. Kung Fu Panda 3 (20th Century Fox) Week 2; Last weekend #1 $21,000,000 (-49%) in 3,987 theaters (+32); PTA (per theater average): $5,267; Cumulative: $69,051,000 2. Hail, Caesar! (Universal) New - Cinemascore: C-; Criticwire: B; Metacritic: 72; Est. budget: $22 million $11,440,000 in 2,232 theaters; PTA: $5,125; Cumulative: $11,440,000 3. »

Sure, it's hard to guess which movies will be big enough draws to pull people away from their living rooms on Super Bowl weekend. But the studios were wrong about nearly every new offering this weekend, and so were the box office analysts.
The only new release that performed as expected was the Coen Brothers' period Hollywood spoof "Hail, Caesar!", debuting in second place with an estimated $11.4 million. That's pretty weak, even for filmmakers as cultish as the Coens. Yet it was still far better than this weekend's other new wide releases, "The Choice" and "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" -- both of which opened well below expectations. It's enough to make you wonder if moviegoers have lost interest in both Nicholas Sparks and zombies.
Sparks, the novelist whose tearjerking romances have been adapted into such hits as "The Notebook," used to be one of Hollywood's most reliable brands, generating 11 movies over the past 17 years. »

This weekend, a new movie from the Coen Brothers, another Nicholas Sparks adaptation, and a high concept zombie movie all arrived but none of them could knock out an animated panda from the top spot at the box office. "Kung Fu Panda 3" stayed at the top of the box office for the second straight week, with 20th Century Fox's sequel adding $21 million to the balance sheet, keeping it ahead of the competition which didn't have much of a fighting chance. The film coming in with arguably the biggest push behind it was the Coens' "Hail, Caesar!" and yet, despite a huge ensemble of A-list talent, the picture only earned $11.4 million. The directors have only had six films in their career open in wide release, but this ranks near the bottom with 2003's "Intolerable Cruelty" besting it. With a $22 million price-tag, the film will likely wind up perhaps turning a small profit, »

Kung Fu Panda 3 wins again! Po and the Furious Five held onto first place this weekend as Kung Fu Panda 3 was once again on top at the box office with an estimated $21 million! Although it retained the #1 spot going into Super Bowl Sunday, the Dreamworks computer-animated sequel dropped by nearly 50% from its opening last week. Kung Fu Panda 3 has a 10-day domestic total of $69 million, plus another... Read More »
