The Preview Reel: New Lego, Spy, and Horror Movies

8 hours ago | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Welcome to this week’s “Preview Reel” column, where we look at the week’s upcoming wide-release movies. The horror film It dominated the box office again last weekend as two new releases struggled to find their audience. It would appear though that the two-week reign for the Stephen King adaption is about to end as two high-profile releases (The Lego Ninjago Movie and Kingsman: The Golden Circle) and one small budget horror flick (Friend Request) hit screens. All three movies seem to be targeting different demographics, but which one is best for you? Let’s find out.

The Lego Ninjago Movie

What we are excited about: The Lego Movie franchise has turned out surprisingly good animated films. The Lego Movie was arguably the best animated movie of 2014, even though it was completely snubbed at the Oscars, and this year’s The Lego Batman Movie was an enjoyable riff on the classic comic book hero. »

Disappointing August 2017 Closed Out the Worst Summer Movie Season in Over 10 Years

19 hours ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

As the September box office attempts to get 2017 back on track*the month is currently up 14% compared to last year*the chapter ends on what was a dismal August 2017 at the domestic box office. August was the fourth month in a row to show a decline compared to the previous year, all of which contributed to the worst Summer movie season in over ten years, in which the total summer gross failed to top $4 billion for the first time since 2006. August 2017 wrapped up as the worst August in twenty years with calendar grosses delivering a combined $657.7 million from 225 movies, 35.5% behind last year's gross and failing to top $700 million for the first time since 2000. Thanks to the continued performance of Annabelle: Creation, which just topped $100 million domestically yesterday, the month did deliver a $100+ million earner, a feat that looked as if it might not happen not too long ago.

‘Annabelle: Creation’ Passing $300 Million Worldwide!

19 hours ago | | See recent news »

I knew all of our attention would turn to It once it broke box office records, which is why I rushed up an article pointing out that David F. Sandberg‘s Annabelle: Creation is this year’s most profitable horror film, not Universal PicturesGet Out. This isn’t to take anything away from Jordan Peele’s masterpiece but should illustrate just […] »

Can Kingsman 2 or Ninjago Take Down It at the Box Office?

19 September 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While the It had no trouble repeating atop the box office for a second straight frame in a row last weekend, it doesn't seem that it will be going for a three-peat, with three new movies vying for the crown in wide release, 20th Century Fox's action-packed sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Warner Bros.' Lego Movie spin-off The Lego Ninjago Movie and Entertainment Studios' horror-thriller Friend Request. While it very well could be a close race, we're predicting that Ninjago will come out on top with $55.6 million, while Kingsman 2 will follow just behind with $52.4 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that both Kingsman 2 and Ninjago will be released in roughly 3,900 theaters, with Friend Request opening in roughly 3,000 theaters. All of those movies will still fall short of the 4,138 theaters that the blockbuster It remake was playing in last weekend, but after a record-breaking opening weekend, and a normal second-weekend drop, »

Box Office Weekend: It Holds Top Spot

17 September 2017 6:54 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The horror film It topped the box office again this week with $60 million. The two-week total for the film fell just short of $220 million but has established the Stephen King adaptation as the highest grossing September release of all time. In a distant second-place was American Assassin with $14.8 million in its first week of release.

Darren Aronofsky’s mother! finished in third with $7.5 million in its initial week of release and has apparently not been winning audiences over despite the presence of star Jennifer Lawrence. Meanwhile, the Reese Witherspoon comedy Home Again brought in $5.3 million to bring its two-week total to $17.1, which was good enough to hold fourth place this week. The Hitman’s Bodyguard brought its five-week total to $70.4 million with $3.6 million this weekend, which held fifth place for it.

The successful six-week run for Annabelle: Creation continued as the horror film took in $2.6 million to raise its total »

Box Office Roundup: ‘It’ Tops the Box Office For Second Weekend

17 September 2017 2:48 PM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

It continues to crush the box office competition, winning the box office for the second straight week.  It brought in an additional $60 million this weekend, bringing the films estimated domestic total to just over $218 million.  With excellent business overseas, It has brought an international cume of just over $152 for a worldwide total of $370 million.  It’s been an impressive start for It, and it should be interesting to see how It performs in its third weekend with the release of both The Lego Ninjango Movie and Kingsman The Golden Circle.

In a somewhat surprising turn of events, American Assassin finished second this weekend, opening with a solid $14.8 million.  The Michael Keaton led Assassin was not only able to top the film which sits in the third spot, but almost double its opening weekend box office.

The movie that sits number 3 is Darren Aronofsky’s Mother!, which opened with a disappointing $7.5 million. »

‘It’ Lives Again, ‘mother!’ Dies at Box Office

17 September 2017 12:26 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Stephen King’s mighty “It” is single-handedly reviving box office totals after a bleak late summer. It is rare for the second weekend of a hit film to provide the majority of the gross for the time period, but that’s what Warner Bros. achieved on the horror flick’s second weekend. While not as dominant as it was in its September record initial three days, $60 million represented barely more than a 50 per cent drop. Not bad.

With almost $219 million in the till so far and a strong hold, forget $300 million as an ultimate domestic total — $350 million now looks possible. “It” is already the third-biggest modern-day September release ever after only ten days. It will soar past “Rush Hour” by next weekend, and end up almost certain behind “Crocodile Dundee” (adjusted to current ticket prices, at about $410 million) as best for the month in the era of wide initial releases. »

'It' Remains #1 with $60M Second Weekend, Floating to September Record

17 September 2017 9:22 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

After just eight days in release, WB and New Line's It became the highest grossing September release of all-time, two days later it added another $40 million to that total for an impressive $60 million second weekend and nearly $220 million in just ten days. The horror film's performance vastly overshadowed the weekend's two new wide releases that saw Lionsgate and CBS Films's American Assassin deliver respectable results in second place while Paramount's release of Darren Aronofsky's mother! suffered greatly, finishing in third and receiving a disastrous "F" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. With an estimated $60 million this weekend, WB and New Line's It brought its domestic cume to $218.7 million after just ten days in release. As already mentioned, that makes it the largest September release ever, topping 1986's Crocodile Dundee ($174.8m). That number, of course, is not adjusted for inflation. Adjusted for inflation, however, It still finishes within the top »

Box Office: ‘Mother!’ Crumbles With $7.5 Million, ‘It’ Repeats No. 1

17 September 2017 7:35 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It” continues to post terrifyingly huge numbers, while “Mother!” opens with a thud.

“It,” from Warner Bros. and New Line, expects to finish its second weekend with $60 million from 4,103 locations.

Broken down by day this weekend, “It” earned $19.4 million on Friday and $26.2 million on Saturday. Sunday’s take is estimated to be about $14.5 million. 389 Imax screens are expected to account for just over $3 million of the film’s take in North America this weekend.


Film Review: Jennifer Lawrence in ‘mother!’

Overseas, “It” is pulling in an additional $60.3 million in 56 markets. That raises its international total to $152.6 million and the worldwide tally to $371.3 million.

Based on Stephen King’s novel, “It” opened last weekend with an enormous domestic pull of $123.4 million. The R-rated title, reportedly »

Horrorwood! Will the new golden age of scary movies save cinema?

14 September 2017 9:41 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

It’s been a disappointing year at the box office – which means the huge success of It, Get Out and other horrors have made the genre more vital than ever. So how did these once-fringe films move to the heart of the mainstream?

A creepy clown has just chomped a monstrous chunk out of the box office – and It is not alone. This year, horrors Annabelle: Creation and the fantastic Get Out have thrived while other genres struggled to draw in the crowds. The Stephen King adaptation about the evil Pennywise has made nearly $180m (£134m) worldwide in its opening weekend, the biggest-ever opening for a horror. It’s official: horror films are firmly part of the mainstream – for good or bad.

The Conjuring “universe” kicked off in 2013, buoyed by the success of the Insidious series. The supernatural sequels and spin-offs that followed its success have since magicked themselves into »

'It' Set for $50M+ Second Weekend, Smothering 'Mother!' and 'American Assassin' Debuts

14 September 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

Friday Am Update: Lionsgate's release of CBS Films' American Assassin brought in $915,000 from Thursday night previews in 2,400 locations beginning at 7Pm. This compares favorably to John Wick, which kicked off its run to a $14.4 million opening with $870k from Thursday screenings. Paramount's mother! delivered $700k from Thursday previews beginning at 7Pm in ~2,000 locations, which is behind the $855k for Crimson Peak, which we used as one of our comps in our weekend preview below. It is, however, an improvement on the $520k Nightcrawler brought in before it opened with $10.4 million back in October 2014. We'll take a closer look at things tomorrow morning once Friday estimates come in. For now you can check out our weekend preview below.Weekend Preview: Following a record breaking opening last weekend, WB and New Line's It will reign supreme once again this weekend, pushing the horror film's domestic gross near record heights after just ten days of release. »
