  New Moon sets new opening day record.
Posted by: Mike on Nov 21st, 2009 Leave a Comment »

It’s a sad day for us The Dark Knight fans. Or for those of us who just love movies in general.

The Twilight Saga: New Moon has set a new opening day record of just over $72million.  That beats the previous record, held by our loved The Dark Knight by just over $5.6million.

New Moon has also set a new “single day” record, and a “single day – Friday” record, for its opening day.

Despite making a boatload of money, people don’t seem to be enjoying the latest “Twilight” movie.  As of now, Rotten Tomatoes’ current rating is 29%, and IMDb is only at a 4.4/10.

Have you seen New Moon? Is it as terrible as I’d guess it’d be?




  Transformers 2 Dominates Box Office

It’s no secret that everyone anticipated Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen/em> to be enormous.  I even went and saw it, though I certainly didn’t like it.

The movie raked in just over $200 million it its first five days in theaters.  While that may seem like a lot of money, it isn’t the most money ever taken in during the first five days in theaters.  That record is still held by The Dark Knight.  It was close, but Batman won by just a few million dollars.

With that said, $200million is still good for the number two spot on the list of best five day openings in history, and it demolished The Proposal, which made just $18 million.

Did you see Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen?  What did you think?  Sound off in the comments.




  Star Trek hits $33Millon
Posted by: Mike on May 9th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

As of the last showing, at the last theater last night, reports are in the Star Trek has hit the $33million mark, already.

If it continues today and tomorrow with the same amount of revenue, we could see an $85million opening weekend. While that would be impressive, it’d only be about half of The Dark Knight’s opening weekend record.

The opening weekend record for the month of May is held by Spider-man, with $151million.




  Star Trek already made $7million

Star Trek 2009Variety is reporting that last night’s late night showings of Star Trek have already brought the movie’s weekend total to $7 million, domestically.

Estimates say that if the film pulls in $25million today (which is extremely likely) that it’ll break the $80million mark for its opening weekend.

Chances of Wolverine holding the number one spot two weeks in a row are pretty bleak at this point.

Wolverine opened on roughly 4,100 screens, and did just over $75million on opening weekend, last week.

Star Trek is opening on 3,800 screens, and is estimated to do over $80million. Seems like a good weekend to be part of the Star Trek franchise.

We’re planning on hitting the first showing in the morning, and will have our review up early tomorrow afternoon.

What about you? When are you planning on seeing it?  Or are you not planning on seeing it at all?




  Wolverine cuts up competition
Posted by: Mike on May 4th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

For those of you living under a rock, Wolverine opened this past weekend.  While some people have said they hated it, others said it was pretty good.

Christine didn’t hate it, but it wasn’t her favorite. (Read her review.)

What is evident, is that the movie’s marketing worked.  Whether or not you liked it, chances are, you saw it.  Wolverine pulled in a staggering $87 million over its opening weekend.

That’s more than the rest of the top ten movies of the weekend, combined.

What did you think? Did you see it? Was it up to snuff?




  Fast & Furious Kills at Box Office
Posted by: Mike on Apr 5th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

moneymoneymoneymoneyIt’s evident that people still want fast cars, hot chicks, and Vin Diesel.  In an amazing opening weekend, the revival of the Fast and Furious franchine pulled in a whopping $72.5 million bucks.

That $72.5 million represents half of the money that all movies this weekend made.  That amazes me.

It also puts the new Fast & Furious movie atop the list of biggest grossing movies in April, of all time, beating the previous number one, Anger Management, by over $30 million.

I guess people were hoping that this new Fast & Furious would revive, and redeem, the franchise.  Did you see it? What’d you think of it? Leave your thoughts in the comments.




  Knowing out sells Man
Posted by: Mike on Mar 23rd, 2009 Leave a Comment »

I was a bit surprised to take a look at the final box office tallies from the weekend, to see a cheesy (and extremely poorly reviewed) Nicholas Cage movie taking top honors.

I fully expected I Love You, Man to take the top spot. But, I guess R rated comedies will always lose out to PG-13 rated Nicholas Cage movies.  Go figure.

I didn’t have a chance to check out  I Love You, Man, but have full intentions on seeing it this week. I’ve heard nothing but good things. And being a huge fan of Jason Segal, and Paul Rudd, I simply have to see this film.




  Tyler Perry Strikes Gold, Again
Posted by: Mike on Mar 2nd, 2009 Leave a Comment »

It seems the guy can do no wrong.  Yet another Tyler Perry movie has shot straight to the top of the charts for a second week in a row.

The Jonas Brothers had no chance of taking the number one spot, and Tyler Perry held strong.

Madea Goes to Jail – $16.5M
Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience – $12.7M
Slumdog Millionaire– $12.2M
Taken – $9.95M
He’s Just Not That Into You – $5.88M

It’s nice that Taken is still pulling in $10 million a week, even though some of the press is bashing the hell out of it.  Don’t believe them, Taken is amazing.
