Box Office Breakdown: Bring On The Fuzz

This weekend’s Top Ten saw the introduction of several new movies:  Fracture, Vacancy and In the Land of Women.  But no star-wattage combination (Gosling/Hopkins, Wilson/Beckinsale) could bring down the LeBeouf. But that’s not to say Indy’s newest sidekick shouldn’t be worried.  Hot Fuzz, the latest movie from the makers of Shaun of the Dead, had an impressive debut—bringing in an average of $7000 per theater.  With Grindhouse already off the map, here’s how the rest …

Vacancy Leaves Fans Empty

Posted by K.C. Morgan
Categories: Sony, Horror, New Releases,

A dark, somewhat eerie night. A strange, somewhat scary locale. A couple with a broken-down car. Either this is a classic B-movie horror setup, or we’re about to be treated to a fabulous cult classic. Many, many movies have used the same premise – a handful have even created memorable screen drama with this same scene, but it’s even more ambitious for horror filmmakers to use a plot that’s been brilliantly, and totally, done before. If …

Box Office Breakdown:  Oscar Winners Fail to Prevail

DISTURBIA [di-stur’-bee-uh), noun: A rare state that occurs when three previous Oscar winners (e.g. Berry, Swank, Tarantino) struggle to remain in the Top Ten.  This anomaly often coincides with the meteoric rise of a 20-year-old star (e.g. Lebeouf). 1. Disturbia, Paramount, $22,224,982 2. Blades of Glory, Paramount, $13,826,386 3. Meet the Robinsons, Disney, $12,467,155 4. Perfect Stranger, Sony, $11,206,163 5. Are We Done Yet?, Sony, $8,952,686 6.

Box Office Breakdown:  Metal Blades Take Down Machine Gun Leg

Not even the combined directing muscle of Team Tarantino/Rodriguez could take away the gold medal from Team Ferrell/Heder.  Despite the publicity onslaught, Grindhouse didn’t even score a silver.  Heck, it didn’t even make the medal platform.  But I guess it could have been worse.  Two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank not only placed fifth—but she too was beat out by a family friendly Ice Cube.  I think it’s now safe to say that the plagues have …

Box Office Breakdown:  Blades Has The Cutting Edge

It really shouldn’t have been hard to predict that a Will Ferrell movie—or frankly a better movie—would take the top spot away from those fightin’ turtles.  Audiences simply love watching him mock their beloved sports.  It’s also worth nothing that TMNT sunk so low…it was even surpassed by the old fave, 300.  Cowabunga?#$%! Here’s how the rest of the weekend broke down: 1. Blades of Glory, Paramount, $33,014,202 2. Meet the Robinsons, Disney, $25,123,781 3. …

Box Office Breakdown: Cowabunga!

And Xerses thought 300 warriors looked pathetic.  Apparently a handful of shells was all it took to take down that clump of shielded warriors.  The latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles offering, TMNT, took the top spot away this weekend from powerhouse 300. Also of note—two movies starring a Wahlberg opened up this week:  Shooter with Mark and Dead Silence with Donnie.  While neither movie did spectacular, both movies managed to crack the Top 10.  Here’s …

Box Office Breakdown: 300 Loses Steam, Remains Strong

Just like the Spartan forces, the movie 300 was bound to lose steam.  But that doesn’t mean it won’t still take out a round of movies on its way down!  Here’s the breakdown for the past weekend: 1. 300, Warner Bros., $32,877,328 2. Wild Hogs, Disney, $19,058,871 3. Premonition, Sony, $17,558,689 4. Dead Silence, Universal, $7,842,725 5. I Think I Love My Wife, Fox Searchlight, $5,674,802 6. Bridge to Terabithia, Disney, $5,192,153 7. Ghost Rider, …

Box Office Breakdown: 300 Tears It Up

Ghost Rider and Wild Hogs step aside.  Throngs of men in need of a testosterone-laden movie were apparently craving more than just motorcycles.  According to the latest box office numbers, what they really needed were swords.  And blood.  And Spartan women.  Trapped inside a crowded theater this weekend, I knew 300 would be successful.  But who could have guessed it would be this big??  The latest movie to be based on a Frank Miller graphic …

Spider-Man 3 Adds New Villains to the Web

Sony Pictures will release the third installment to the Spidey saga May 4, 2007, much to the delight of eager fans.
