The 2019 Box Office Is Down Half a Billion Dollars: It’s Not All Bad News

The 2019 Box Office Is Down Half a Billion Dollars: It’s Not All Bad News
Twelve days into its domestic opening, “Captain Marvel” has earned over $270 million in North America — but that’s not enough to end recent worries about the plunging box office. Revenue is still off by more than 20 percent, suggesting an unusual confluence of factors have created a sudden pronounced lack of interest in moviegoing. Here’s four of them.

Fewer wide-release films

Through last weekend, 2019 has seen 21 films open on more than 1,500 screens. This time last year, that number was 27. Even if those were lesser-grossing titles, figure six fewer films contributed at least $150 million to the shortfall. That doesn’t mean individual films made less this year; indeed, the absence of competition may have meant higher grosses for them. However, this looks like the new normal as studios conserve their firepower to produce fewer, more-expensive titles.

Christmas was weak

To put it kindly, January is a month for more secondary titles.

Samuel L. Jackson ‘Doesn’t Give a F*ck’ If Speaking Out Against Trump Loses Him Fans

Samuel L. Jackson ‘Doesn’t Give a F*ck’ If Speaking Out Against Trump Loses Him Fans
Samuel L. Jackson isn’t one to mince words when speaking about Donald Trump. At the beginning of the new year, the actor went viral for calling Trump a “motherfucker”. Does Jackson care that his outspoken hatred of the president might alienate fans or turn some of his massive fan base away from seeing his movies? Not at all.

“I know how many motherfuckers hate me,” Jackson recently told Esquire about not fearing fan reactions to his Trump criticisms. “‘I’m never going to see a Sam Jackson movie again.’ Fuck I care? If you never went to another movie I did in my life, I’m not going to lose any money. I already cashed that check. Fuck you. Burn up my videotapes. I don’t give a fuck.”

A common reaction Jackson often hears from Trump supporters is that he is an actor and should therefore “stick to acting” and not politics.

Samuel L. Jackson on Tarantino’s Use of the N-Word and Only Allowing Three Takes Per Scene
Samuel L. Jackson is back on top of the box office with “Captain Marvel,” his second number one debut of the year following M. Night Shyamalan’s “Glass” in January. While the actor is already having one of his biggest year’s yet, one film he is not attached to is Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” Jackson has appeared in six of Tarantino’s nine films, and recently told Esquire his character in the director’s “Django Unchained” is his favorite of all time.

“I love fucking Stephen,” Jackson said about the character, a loyal house slave to the film’s villainous plantation owner Calvin J. Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). “I mean, the dude ran that fucking plantation. Candyland was his fucking plantation. Leo’s out fighting n–gers and doing whatever, running the strip club. Dude’s writing the bills. [Stephen is] making sure the crops get planted.

The Upside For Stx: ‘Upside’ Becomes Second Release After ‘Bad Moms’ To Cross $100M

  • Deadline
STXfilms’ release of Lantern Entertainment’s The Upside will cross the $100 million milestone Tuesday at the domestic box office, becoming the Burbank-based studio’s second release to do so in its nearly five years of operations. Bad Moms grossed $113.2M in 2016.

The Upside is Kevin Hart’s sixth starring feature to click past $100M and Bryan Cranston’s fifth. For director Neil Burger, it’s his second after Divergent. Among 2019 releases to date, The Upside is the second movie to surpass $100M after Universal/Bvi/Blumhouse’s Glass.

We typically don’t write standalone pieces about movies passing the century mark in their seventh week of release, but this deserves some recognition: Stx’s plan is to keep lower-to middle-budgeted fare alive theatrically, especially when streaming is encroaching on these types of movies that are aimed at specific adult demos.

After starting its international roll out earlier this month, Universal Pictures and DreamWorks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World made its way to North America this past weekend, where it delivered a franchise-best opening of $58 million including previews.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” is providing the box office with some much needed good news. After earning $17.5 million from 4,259 theaters on Friday, the Universal/DreamWorks animated film is on pace for a projection-beating $58 million opening.

Box Office: ‘How to Train Your Dragon 3’ Soaring to $50 Million-Plus Launch
How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” is soaring toward a $53 million launch weekend at 4,259 North American locations, early estimates showed on Friday.

Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho Adds Matt Smith and More

David Crow Feb 22, 2019

Edgar Wright casts Matt Smith and Thomasin McKenzie in Last Night in Soho, his new horror film starring Anya Taylor-Joy.

Edgar Wright is apparently making his first straight-ahead horror movie, and the more we hear, the more exciting it becomes. Revealed earlier this month that Last Night in Soho would star Anya Taylor-Joy and be a horror film set in Central London, a part of the city Wright says he’s “spent a huge amount of time in the last 25 years,” the project is now adding to its cast former Doctor Who star Matt Smith and Thomasin McKenzie.

This continues the trend of Edgar Wright casting some impressively strong talent for his still fairly mysterious genre pic. Smith of course will bring geek attention due to his stint as the Eleventh Doctor on BBC, however he has had more recent success from playing a surprisingly empathic depiction
