Weekend U.S. Box Office November 23-25, 2018

What a weekend this was at the U.S. box office. ‘Ralph’ managed to get top spot, but had serious competition against it with ‘Grinch’ still out and ‘Fantastic Beasts’. Then their was ‘Creed II’ that also did great, even though it wasn’t first. Which doesn’t look that bad when you account for the fact that it made more than its first entry by around 6 million and was released to a smaller amount of movie theaters around the States.

However, what everybody will be talking about is the weak link of the pack that was as expected the new ‘Robin Hood’. The film that wanted to bamboozle audiences into thinking it was the hip and fresh reboot when it was anything other that.

A small drop for the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ series in its box office intake from its first film, but not big enough that Warner Bros should be scared, yet. However, that being said its international box office alone is something that still makes a lot of the classic Hollywood studios not care so much anymore about what happens in the States. As the big markets of importance are now China and other developing nations.

Benedict Cumberbatch is the Grinch and for the film’s first week it almost made its budget back with its U.S. box office alone. In second place no surprise is the Queen biopic that is doing well and in third place is ‘Overload‘ with a small box office of 10 million, but a couple of weeks more will tell if this kooky horror film will have legs with its tiny budget of 38 million dollars.

Lastly, the other new film of the week the ‘Dragon Tattoo’ film bombed with only 8 million dollars over the weekend. As it was barely promoted, had significant competition against it and despite the great admiration people had for the previous films, there was no buzz behind this one.

Weekend U.S. Box Office November 2-4, 2018

The most anticipated musical biopic of the last few years is finally out and with a nice 50 million box office just in the U.S. In second place on the other hand is the the film that tried to be the new ‘Alice in Wonderland‘ and failed miserably at that with its budget of around 130 million dollars. Showing that big studios are way too eager to repeat a trend that they have no idea why it succeed in the first placed.

Down the pecking order ‘Venom’ is about to make 200 million and ‘Halloween’ reached the nice amount of 150 million.

Weekend U.S. Box Office October 26-28, 2018

As mentioned around two weeks ago, if word of mouth was good 'A Star is Born' would get close to 200 million without an issue and below the numbers show that it may still get there once Oscar season comes around. Not to mention even with the box office it has at the moment, it is quite the achievement for both Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga and the amazing film they made.

Still though in first place is the reboot of ‘Halloween’ that was lucky not to have any serious competition for the horror month of October. Lastly, there is ‘First Man‘ that in all honesty done poorly despite its famed and talented director and leading star and soon will be out of box office top ten.

No matter if the film ‘Venom‘ was good or bad, it had many people’s attention to garner 80 million alone in the U.S. Box Office. Which still goes to show what an ‘IP’ can do without real buzz behind it to back it up. 

In second place is Bradley Cooper’s first film ‘A Star is Born‘ that also made a decent return and real early if you remember Oscar season isn’t that far away. So its foreseeable that by the time Oscar season heats up and word of mouth spreads this film could climb to 200 million if lucky. In comparison, at last place is ‘Predator’ that finally managed to make 50 million total after 4 weeks. Talk about a flop.

This U.S. box office weekend had ‘Mission Impossible’ finally get kicked out of the top ten after 9 weeks and a Eli Roth kids film got top spot in what was another pretty quiet week.

In other news, the sequel to ‘Fahrenheit 9/11’ tanked, with its box office being nothing near its original (link) and three films made significant climbs to the 100 and 150 million dollar marks that will look really good on DVD and Blu Ray covers soon in a store near you.
