A24’s The Disaster Artist, directed by and starring James Franco, enters the top 5 with an est. $6.4 million. Broad Green’s Just Getting Started isn’t… it bombed pretty badly its opening weekend.
James Franco’s The Disaster Artist faring well in first weekend of wide release, while Justice League and Wonder are in a close race for second place.
Ron Shelton’s comedy Just Getting Started, starring Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones, takes on James Franco’s The Disaster Artist as it expands nationwide.
Lucasfilm’s 2017 release is just weeks away. Advance tickets are selling like hotcakes. But few think it will break some of the seemingly insurmountable box office records set by its 2015 precursor.
Greta Gerwig’s Lady BIrd and Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards both expanded into over 1,000 theaters and grossed roughly $4.5 million in the slower post-Thanksgiving weekend. James Franco’s The Disaster Artist scored an impressive opening in just 19 theaters.
Wonder is giving Justice League a run for second place with a few other close races with no new wide releases or Top 10 entries.
Fox Searchlight expands Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards further but otherwise, Disney’s Coco is free and clear to repeat at #1.
Pixar’s latest opened lower than last year’s Moana but better than 2015’s The Good Dinosaur, while Justice League dropped to second place.
The latest Pixar Animation film is looking to gross close to $70 mill. over the five-day weekend, making it the fourth-biggest Thanksgiving opener for the studio.
The new animated feature from Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3) is taking on the second weekend of Warners’ Justice League. Denzel Washington’s Roman J. Israel, Esq. also expands nationwide.
While Warner Bros’ latest failed to find the success of previous DCEU movies, the adaptation of Raquel Palacio’s novel far exceeded all expectations and early predictions.
Warner Bros’ holiday tentpole probably won’t make $100 million this weekend, as Justice League grossed less than half what Batman v Superman made its first Friday.
Lionsgate’s Wonder and Sony’s animated The Star offer minimal counter-programming with the former likely to break out.
Disney/Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok predictably won the weekend with $57.1 million, representing a larger-than-expected 53.5 percent drop. Justice League won’t help matters next weekend, but Taika Waititi’s sequel has already passed Thor: The Dark World in the box office history books.
On the specialty side, Fox Searchlight opens Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri on four screens, and it could very well end up challenging Lady Bird for this year’s per-screen average crown.
Halloween may be over, but Lionsgate hung on to 3rd and 4th place thanks to “Jigsaw” and “Tyler Perry’s Boo 2! A Madea Halloween,” which finished behind “A Bad Moms Christmas.”
On the arthouse side, it’s actually a good weekend to be an adult at the movies, as this weekend sees the release of Richard Linklater’s “Last Flag Flying” and Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird.”
Lionsgate’s attempt to reboot their horror franchise falls short, but “Thank You For Your Service” and “Suburbicon” are massive bombs.
Analyzing the pros and cons of Warner Bros’ biggest make or break movie of the fall/holiday movie season.
George Clooney, Matt Damon might have the biggest bomb of their careers with the Paramount dark comedy “Suburbicon.”
The horror sequel stands the best chance over weekend before Halloween, but does Matt Damon + George Clooney + Julianne Moore = a bomb?
Gerard Butler’s “Geostorm” fizzles but still does better than three other star-led movies.
“Geostorm” should take second place, but everything else is doing rather poorly.
Other movies offer star power galore but is that enough to make a mark in a weekend with far too many movies?
Jackie Chan’s “The Foreigner” also does better than expected but settles for third place. “Marshall” and “Professor Marston” represent a bad weekend for biopics.
The Blumhouse horror flick will beat “Blade Runner 2049” for first place while Jackie Chan’s “The Foreigner” should place third.
Blumhouse’s “Happy Death Day,” Jackie Chan’s “The Foreigner” and Chadwick Boseman as “Marshall” take on “Blade Runner 2049.”
The Denis Villeneuve-directed sequel, released 35 years after the original movie, only made $31.5 mill. this weekend, far below most expectations. “My Little Pony: The Movie” also opened weakly in fourth place.
Despite positive tracking and reviews, the sci-fi sequel may not make more than $40 mill. this weekend. Meanwhile, weaker offerings “My Little Pony” and “Mountain Between Us” might be fighting it out for second place.
Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford are brought together for Denis Villeneuve’s long-awaited sequel that’s receiving rave reviews. “My Little Pony” and “The Mountain Between Us” probably won’t make similar waves.
