Weekend U.S. Box Office February 15-17, 2019

Thank Heavens studios have the international market to rely on, as otherwise most of them wouldn’t make ends meet. Case in point, ‘Alita’ that crashed badly in the U.S. market, but internationally made almost around 100 million in its first week.

Same couldn’t be said for other newcomer ‘Isnt It Romantic‘, that did as expected the bare minimum 20 million mark at the box office, but was released only in selected countries in theaters with the rest getting it straight to Netflix. Which is a weird new strategy by the studio that could many viewers in the States question why they had to pay more than 10 or 15 dollars for a ticket for it, when they could have just had it as a part of their subscription bundle in the first place.

New Movies of the Week 14/2/19-20/2/2019

After almost 16 years, James Cameron finally gets his ‘Alita‘ film released and it is as expected a CGI action fest. It virtually has no competition in its way, but difficult to tell if it will be a grand hit of the likes of ‘Avatar‘ or it will just be categorized as another hollow, eye candy sci-fi film..

Weekend U.S. Box Office February 8-10, 2019

The box office is up and running again (naturally not in full gear) with some films people actually want to see. The same though couldn’t be exactly said for the new Liam Neeson film ‘Cold Pursuit’ that indicates people are either tired of the ‘Taken’ formula or something in the news didn’t help them see this film over the weekend.

Lowest box office weekend so far this year and lowest Superbowl box office weekend as well (source) shouldn’t surprise anyone. Despite of it, ‘Miss Bala‘ managed to get into third place as the only new release in the top ten and ‘Glass‘ is still trying to scratch through to reach the 100 million mark.

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Trailer - The Rock & Jason Statham Movie

At first the F&F series started as a fun and serious action film, then it became standard sequel fare for a couple of films, till it suddenly took a turn for the serious in F&F 5, to later only change again towards the ludicrous (no pun intended) with F&F 6 & 7 and then finally became utter trash with F&F 8.

Now, a spin-off of the characters of those films will be a reality with ‘Hobbs & Shaw‘ and the direction they decided to take was of ‘GI Joe 1’ and ‘Kingsman’ nature and level of insanity in death defying acts and stunts, while also human abilities. Which is quite interesting to see that the production thinks that this direction will work based on the series prior history, but time will tell if audiences will eat this up or make into one of biggest box office bombs in history.

director: David Leitch

starring: Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham and Idris Elba

New Movies of the Week 31/1/19-6/2/2019

Heading into February this week is a diverse array of films being released that will find some adequately satisfied, but most will be wondering where the blockbusters are at? Not to mention where is also the star power content to leave their homes for the big screen.

Another dull U.S. box office weekend, despite some good films still being out there new and old. In addition, ‘Aquaman‘ may not have made ‘Black Panther’ money in the U.S. box office throughout its run, but on a global scale its a whole another story. (source)
