Ted 2 performed far under what the studio hoped for, coming in second place to Ted’s opening by over $20 million. Audiences are liking it far more than critics, but apparently not enough.
There’s no denying it’s going to be a really tight race this weekend. Jurassic World, Inside Out, and Ted 2 are all being projected right around the $50 million mark. Although Inside Out is trending seriously high with parents, they haven’t exactly forgotten about Jurassic World.
In another huge box office weekend, the real shock was Inside Out, which now holds the second highest Pixar opening of all time. Audiences came out in droves for what was the first Pixar movie in two years.
Though Inside Out has enjoyed rave reviews so far, there’s really no stopping Jurassic World, and it’s just going to go on destroying records. In one weekend, it made almost half of what Avengers: Age of Ultron has grossed in seven.
There’s really not much to say besides Jurassic World had no problem gobbling up the competition. ALL of the competition. All of the competition of all time. It beat both Avengers movies. And every Harry Potter. And Nolan’s Dark Knight series. Love it or hate it, it looks like everyone went to see Chris Pratt’s trained velociraptors this weekend.
It’s been 14 years since the last one. The Jurassic Park franchise is basically the Star Wars of anyone born in the ’80s and ’90s. This is the movie millennials have been waiting for and Chris Pratt proved he could bring the big numbers with last summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
Another week, another under-performing box office. Spy performed alright with $29 million, higher than McCarthy’s most recent comedy, Tammy. However, rave reviews should keep its momentum going through the week.
Spy will most certain come out on top this weekend, with wide appeal and interest, but everything else is less certain. Insidious could open stronger than expected, giving San Andreas a run for its money.
Apparently no one found fault with San Andreas this weekend, as it crushed the box office with a surprising $54,588,173 million, yet not quite a domination like Pitch Perfect 2.
Since the 4-day Memorial Day weekend was down this year, box office could pick up this weekend thanks to San Andreas opening. Aloha’s opening as well, but it might as well say goodbye now.
Tomorrowland was almost upset by Pitch Perfect 2‘s stellar second weekend this holiday. Bad buzz and a confusing concept (that didn’t get any clearer after seeing it) have surely hurt it, but somehow negative reviews aren’t effecting Poltergeist.
Tomorrowland has a shot at winning this Memorial Day weekend, but it certainly won’t be dominating like Pitch Perfect 2 did with 40% of the box office.
It’s no surprise that Pitch Perfect 2 killed it, but how much much it killed it? That is a little shocking. With $69.2 million, Elizabeth Banks’ directorial debut is an unequivocal success, landing the number one spot this weekend.
Pitch Perfect 2 vs. Mad Max: Fury Road reads like a stereotypical box office battle of the sexes, but Mad Max is putting up more of a fight than expected. We analyze, track, and predict this week’s Box Office numbers.
Week two in the box office, and the Avengers go right on avenging. It should come as no surprise to anyone who lives near a screen of any kind that Age of Ultron will take the weekend again. And not just by a little; possibly by a factor of 5.
This weekend’s winner will be… oh, you already know. The question isn’t whether Age of Ultron will win the weekend, the only interesting question that has yet to be answered, so far as the box office goes, is whether Age of Ultron will specifically break the record for highest-grossing opening weekend that was set by The Avengers.
Neither “Age of Adaline” nor “Ex Machina” can move “Furious 7″ from the top of the stack.
A new crop of releases brings some life to the box office, but Furious 7 will likely drive away with it all for the third week.
“Furious 7″ wins again, but the real race is for second place.
Furious 7 burns rubber.
“Get Hard” dukes it out with the second week of “Insurgent.”
Insurgent is dauntless at the box office.
Cinderella’s poised to be the belle of the box office.
It’s another low-grossing weekend this time, with three new releases — Chappie, The Second Best Marigold Hotel, and Unfinished Business — only one of which is poised to make much impact.
“Focus” is the strong frontrunner, while everyone else grapples for a half-million here, a half-million there.
Second verse, same as the first, except the overall box office is about 40 percent lower.
Love “Fifty Shades of Grey” or hate it. There is no third option.
American Sniper does exactly as we all expected it to.
Bradley Cooper will hold down the fort.
Bradley Cooper takes out the competition.
