Year 8 Actuals (November Is Up!)

Recommended Posts

Okay folks our favorite time of CAYOM is here! 

 

In regard to the actuals, I will not make changes to any of the films. What happens happens. Remember if everything does what it is predicted to do or if everything flops/breaks out it will be a boring year and unrealistic. Films will soar while others will plummet!!

 

January should be up by tonight. February should be up on Sunday and March should be up on Monday/Tuesday. I want enough time in between for you all to discuss the box office and make predictions for the up-coming months!

January 5-7: Zombies Plague the Box Office

Sami Raimi’s The Good, The Bad, and The Dead smashed the opening weekend of January. Expectations were set around a mid-twenty opening but the studio never thought a 30M+ weekend would happen. The film has a B on the Cinema Score, which means that it might have a chance against Unbalanced 5 next weekend. Blood Brothers opened right along expectations. It too got a B on the Cinema Score and reviews were very mixed leaning negative. It might struggle over the next weekends.

 

1. The Good, The Bad, and The Dead- $32,262,456 million

2. The Once & Future King: The Queen of Air & Darkness - $29,705,683 million

3. The Rise & Fall of Julius Caesar - $23,751,925 million

4. Blood Brothers- $13,020,160 million

5. A Series Of Unfortunate Events: Movie the 2nd - $10,212,678 million

6. The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time - $9,937,361 million

7. The Three-Month Funeral - $7,582,395 million

8. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer - $6,381,299 million

9. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, & The Wardrobe- $4,759,830 million

10. Boy Band - $4,293,116 million

 

January 12-15 (MLK Weekend): Unbalanced Leaves with Thunder

Unbalanced 5 was always expected to be a grand slam and with a 40M three-day weekend and a 46.4M four-day weekend it is clear that this franchise is leaving with a bang. The 19.5M Friday clearly shows that the film is severely frontloaded and should plummet next weekend. Hard to Find played well given its sub-2,000 theater release. Audiences liked what they saw and gave it a B+ on the Cinema Score. Bloodbath Unite was murdered by Unbalanced 5 and The Good, The Bad, and The Dead’s success. Reviews were harsh and audiences gave it a D.

 

1. Unbalanced 5: 40,025,117 million/46,447,133 million

2. The Once & Future King: The Queen of Air & Darkness - $16,943,118/$20,855,214 million

3. The Rise & Fall of Julius Caesar - $16,578,427/$20,389,491 million

4. The Good, The Bad, and The Dead- $14,889,231 million/$18,101,117 million (-53.9%)

5. The Three-Month Funeral - $12,653,417/$15,489,203 million

6. Hard to Find- $9,421,232 million/$11,508,992 million

7. The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time - $6,802,331/$8,420,318 million

8. Blood Brothers- $6,668,234 million/$7,925,984 million (-48.5%)

9. A Series Of Unfortunate Events: Movie the 2nd - $6,381,034/$8,081,720 million

10. Bloodbath Unite- $5,567,900 million/$6,559,291 million

 

January 19-21: Three Weekends of 30M+ So Far!

This weekend marks three straight weekends of Year 8 with 30M+ openers. Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel was well received by audiences despite mixed critic reviews. Audiences awarded the third film in the series with a healthy B+. Chessmen also broke out thanks to zero competition. Again reviews were mixed but audiences liked what they saw and gave it an A-. Chessmen should hold very well in the following weekends. 1944 Part 1: Resistance opened limited and expands next weekend. The long running time could keep general audiences away and reviews for the film haven’t been as good as the studio has hoped for but a 38K is a great start and any studio will take that number.

 

1. Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel: $34,356,687 million

2. Chessmen: $25,572,382 million

3. Unbalanced 5- $12,134,447 million (-69.7%)

4. The Rise & Fall of Julius Caesar - $10,723,400 million

5. The Once & Future King: The Queen of Air & Darkness - $9,672,317 million

6. The Three-Month Funeral - $9,012,388 million

7. Hard to Find: $8,111,237 million (-13.8%)

8. The Good, The Bad, and The Dead- $7,451,119 million

9. Blood Brothers- $4,367,887 million

10. The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time - $4,022,368 million

 

(Off charts) Bloodbath Unite- $1,579,993 million (-71.4%)

1944 Part I: Resistance- $306,992 million

 

January 26-28: Slenderman Destroys Ice Station 2

Slenderman: The Beginning fought the over crowded horror box office and surged to win the weekend with a strong 21.2M. The film earned an average C on the Cinema Score but reviews don’t matter for films like this. Ice Station 2: Area 7 plummeted from the first film. The film barely passed 10M this weekend and Tatum couldn’t save it. Reviews were negative and audiences strongly disliked what they saw with a C- Cinema Score. Ice Station 3 looks like it won’t happen. 1944 Part I: Resistance expanded this weekend to wide with a 7.1M weekend. This marks a weak expansion and it appears audiences weren’t on board with this 3-hour flick. With a 45M budget this should be just fine when overseas are added in.

 

1. Slenderman: The Beginning- $21,181,226 million

2. Chessmen- $18,953,496 million (-25.8%)

3. Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel- $16,712,002 million (-51.4%)

4. Ice Station 2: Area 7- $10,003,175 million

5. The Rise & Fall of Julius Caesar - $8,128,331 million

6. The Three-Month Funeral - $7,162,198 million

7. 1944 Part I: Resistance- $7,070,555 million

8. Unbalanced 5- $6,107,695 million

9. The Once & Future King: The Queen of Air & Darkness - $5,723,690 million

10. Hard to Find- $4,758,812 million

11. The Good, The Bad, and The Dead- $4,228,730 million

12. The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time - $3,051,293 million

Aw, that's too bad. I was excited for the sequel.

Yeah right.Blood brothers should make its budget back with overseas profit and did quite well. Bloodbath unite bombed only just making back its prosecution budget and altogether making a loss

Silent Invasion 3: The Attack fell significantly from the first two with 4.8M. The film saw mostly negative reviews and audience didn’t like this third installment with a C- on the Cinema Score.

 

1. We are the Champions 2: Rise of the Crusaders- $18,163,150 million

2. Curling Men- $15,654,211 million

February 9-11: Tatum and Lawrence Dominate Weekend

Tatum and Lawrence’s A Love to Die For swept this weekend with 42.9M. Reviews were mostly positive and audience loved what they saw with a A- on the Cinema Score. It should play well over the next few weekends and should be the first flick this year to pass 100M. Demon: The Summoning and Farmville battled for second place with 11.3M and 11.2M respectively. Reviews were not kind to both films and legs are questionable.

 

1. A Love to Die For- $42,895,743 million

2. Demon: The Summoning- $11,341,901 million

3. Farmville- $11,245,564 million

February 16-19 (President's Day Weekend): Massive President’s Weekend

Darkseed broke out this weekend with 36.1M over the three-day weekend and 41.9M over the four-day. Review were mixed but audiences enjoy Josh Hutcherson’s sci-fi horror flick with a B on the Cinema Score which is great for a horror film. Spinach Artichoke Dip swept 24.2M and 29.6M this weekend, which is much higher than the 13-14M weekend the studio was expecting. Hush Hush Little Baby performed within expectations with 7.5M and 9.1M respectively. This year has been much stronger than most were expecting, however it is unlikely the box office will be able to keep up this momentum for long.

 

1. Darkseed- $36,098,156 million/$41,876,002

2. Spinach Artichoke Dip- $24,225,762 million/$29,573,307 million

3. A Love to Die For- $22,440,991 million/$27,317,081 million (-47.8%)

10. The Rise & Fall of Julius Caesar - $2,410,883/$3,056,289 million

 

February 23-25: The Box Office Refuses to Slow Down

MirrorWorld smashed 34.2M this weekend thanks to little competition and a starved family audience. Reviews were positive and audiences enjoy the film with an A- on the Cinema Score. Daniel Tosh: New and Improved road on the new interest among audiences of stage comedies being adapted to film with 17.3M.  Reviews were mostly negative and audiences were mixed. The Last Rider took 16.6M, which is above expectations but one wonders if it could have broke 20M if Spinach Artichoke Dip won’t have broken out last weekend. Reviews were in line with most action driven flicks and audiences were mixed to positive with the film. Like Tosh tis film was mostly driven by fans alone. The Guardian of the West opened very strong on its limited opening with .6M. Reviews were terrific and audience approval is high for the western documentary.

 

1. MirrorWorld- $34,198,511 million

2. Daniel Tosh: New and Improved- $17,282,166 million

3. The Last Rider- $16,556,081 million

4. Darkseed- $15,846,819 million (-56.2%)

5. A Love to Die For- $13,715,744 million

9. Farmville- $2,899,161 million

10.We are the Champions 2: Rise of the Crusaders- $2,695,777 million
