The Weekly Box Office Results Thread

Post by WOODMO » July 1st, 2012, 12:55 pm

Since we all have been discussing weekend numbers, lets make a thread to keep it all in going forward.

What a great weekend for the two new films. 54mil on Ted is phenomenal, and just about 40mil on Magic Mike with a 7mil budget is unreal.

How shocked are you guys by these numbers?

I'm shocked that Ted mad that much this weekend and really shocked the budget for Magic Mike was on $7 million.
YES YES YES

Real impressive resiliency from Ted and Magic Mike. I thought Magic Mike could lose 75% given the event aspect of the movie. Pretty great Spiderman number, I am impressed.

Sure did. All comedies with the exception of 21 Jump Street have been lackluster in the box office, and I suppose lackluster in quality too.

Of course, Ted as well. Other than that though, comedies have been taking a beating in the box office. People don't seem to be ignoring bad word of mouth for their proven "favorites" like they did in years past.

In terms of summer movies, there have been so many good ones this year that it makes sense for the mediocre or bad ones to fail hard. When you have an unexpected phenom like Ted or Magic Mike, you severely cut into movies that might have done ok otherwise.

Think Like a Man also performed quite well, Project X exceeded expectations, Madea as well- 3 stooges recouped teh budget, but def didnt light the world on fire. The Comedies released this year have been terrible, and not alot that arent Animated or geared toward children (diary of a wimmpy kid)- People are tired of same ol same ol- it will be interesteing to see how Grown Ups 2 does, as teh allure of seeing all those people on one screen has passed-

Even so, a guy like sandler, Stiller, Smith etc are not expected to do as bad as they have

Was Project X really a comedy in the traditional sense? Madea and Think Like A Man were solid box office, not amazing, but very solid.

Grown Ups 2 I think bombs, best Sandler number in his last 3 or 4, but well below the 1st. People that hated the first, which were quite a few, won't care, and those that loved it won't be so excited to see a plot-less movie done again. No way does it match the last number. Same with Stiller, the names are done. When reviews are bad, people will say forget it and stay home, unlike in years past when bad movies by them still did business.

They both need something different, maybe the football movie with Ferrell is what Sandler needs, something he hasn't written, maybe it will be fresher for people. Stiller needs a smaller budget project to review well, like a Juno type success, maybe Walter Mitty can be it. The last few he's released have bombed, box office and critically.

madea was second best madea grossing film of all time, think like a man at least double, maybe triple its budget...eve more than that- project x is a comedy...not sure what else to classify it as---if the watch came out during the brat pack peak- 2001-2003ish (wedding crashers, old school, starsky & Hutch, etc)- it easily surpasses 100m

Project X felt more like party movie, but I guess comedy works, all the trailers I saw focused more on the outlandish than comical, felt like a scripted Jackass. Maybe I just have to see it to get it.

That's what I am saying, their names aren't what they once were. Jack & Jill, The Watch, they all do good 10 years ago, today people aren't going to support shitty movies just because they used to like the stars.

August 13.jpg
Reboot/spin-off The Bourne Legacy debuted to $38.1 million at 3,745 locations. That's a bit lower than recent Bond franchise reboot Casino Royale ($40.8 million) and is in between The Bourne Identity ($27.1 million) and The Bourne Supremacy ($52.5 million). Legacy's debut was off 45 percent from 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum (the last entry with Damon in the lead), and that decline is in between those for recent franchise reboots X-Men: First Class (off 53 percent from The Last Stand) and The Amazing Spider-Man (down 30 percent from Spider-Man 3 over its first five days).


In second place, The Campaign scored $26.6 million from 3,205 locations. That's a bit behind similar Will Ferrell Summer comedies Anchorman ($28.4 million) and Step Brothers ($30.9 million), and more noticeably off from The Other Guys ($35.5 million) and Talladega Nights ($47 million). That being said, it's a fantastic opening for the box-office-challenged political satire genre: in fact, it's the highest debut ever for a movie centered around a political campaign.

The movie was awarded a disappointing "B-" CinemaScore, which isn't particularly encouraging for its long-term prospects. However, the upcoming release schedule is surprisingly devoid of any direct comedy competition, which should help the movie play well through at least the rest of August.
Impressed by both numbers. With Will's being political, I expected 18-20, and Bourne I thought might do worse, but it was real solid.
