Green Lantern and Ends Bring Home Post-Holiday Green, Losers Weep for Small Numbers 

Once again, the holdovers dominate the first weekend of the year, with sci-fi spectacles Green Lantern Corps: Home and The Ends of The Universe taking the top 2 spots. The top 10 this year had a sizable jump from last year, pushing this weekend grosses a few hairs above $100m. Numerator Productions’ Losers Weepers took the fourth slot this weekend, doing about the same as its predecessor, bringing home around $6.2M. Audiences were also not as impressed this time around as Losers Weepers scored a CinemaScore of a “C-“, due to the flat characters and sense of graphic dark comedy not landing. 

 

  1. Green Lantern Corps: Home - $28,238,844 (-45.8%)

  2. The Ends of the Universe - $22,477,095 (-44.3%)

  3. Temple Run - $16,891,626 (-34.6%)

  4. Losers Weepers - $6,213,504 

  5. Birdwing - $6,162,445 (-24.8%)

  7. Until Dawn - $5,107,881 (-54.0%)

  8. Ms. Blakk 4 President - $3,898,115 (-30.6%)

January 12-15 (MLK Jr. Weekend):

The Lost Empire Rules Over The Competition, Gunman Clive Shoots Blanks

 

Phoenix Fire Studios’ scores it’s first major hit since Tony Hawk: Pro Skater last fall as The Lost Empire overperformed its initial tracking to pulling off a four day weekend of almost $70m. Despite a strong holiday season, audiences have been craving a new tentpole feature causing The Lost Empire to overperform pulling similar numbers to Endless Entertainment’s discarded Treasure Planet series. With an “A“ CinemaScore, only time will tell if The Lost Empire will hit the $200m domestic mark, however the road for that seems very difficult.

 

Gunman Clive, on the other hand flew under the radar, performing on pace with lower end of tracking, pulling in a four day of just about $15.5m. Scoring a middling “B” CinemaScore due to the lackluster humor and oddly zany premise, Clive is likely to fade away fastly after the opening and duck under the radar.


 

  1. The Lost Empire - $59,490,595/$69,512,759

  2. Green Lantern Corps: Home - $16,989,435 / $21,237,195 (-39.8%)

  3. The Ends of the Universe - $13,276,967 / $16,604,873 (-40.9%)

  5. Temple Run - $11,515,012 / $14,400,979 (-31.8%)

  6. Birdwing - $4,413,794 / $6,058,144 (-28.4%)

  7. Losers Weepers - $3,218,595/$3,808,141 (-48.2%)

  8. Making Waves 2 - $3,455,112 / $4,315,878 (-42.5%)

  9. Ms. Blakk 4 President - $3,305,775 / $4,133,226 (-15.2%)

January 19-21:

The Lost Empire Resurfaces at Number One, White Wyvern Fails to Captivate Audiences

 

The Lost Empire rules the box office once more as it holds on tightly, dropping just under 49% bringing home a $30.5M weekend. With no other blockbusters until Pokémon in sight, The Lost Empire should pull in a total over $180M. Holds continue to be solid for the Christmas holdovers while the the newer films outside of The Lost Empire fail to keep up momentum. To add insult to injury, New Journey’s White Wyvern fails to be a sight for audiences as it pulls in an opening just under $6m. With word of mouth being quite toxic with a “D+” CinemaScore, White Wyvern is destined to be extinct.


 

  1. The Lost Empire - $30,518,675 (-48.7%)

  2. Green Lantern Corps: Home - $10,354,773 (-39.1%)

  3. The Ends of the Universe - $9,105,144 (-31.4%)

  4. Temple Run - $7,788,669 (-32.4%)

  5. White Wyvern - $5,612,338

  6. Gunman Clive - $5,176,245 (-58.8%)

  7. Birdwing - $3,028,774 (-31.4%)

  8. Ms. Blakk 4 President - $2,216,821 (-32.9%)

  9. Making Waves 2 - $1,850,885 (-46.4%)

  10. Losers Weepers - $1,448,368 (-55%)

 

Top 10 Gross: $71,924,447 (+1.006% from Y7) (-45.1% from last weekend)

 

January 26-28:

The Lost Empire Retains the Box Office Crown, Home Invasion Fails To Get Audiences From Their Homes

 

As usual for the past few weekends, The Lost Empire remains on top of the box office with an $18m third weekend. Empire seems to be also doing very well overseas maintaining solid holds, and likely to be Phoenix Fire’s biggest film both domestic and worldwide, giving the new studio a win and maybe a franchise. 

 

Home Invasion, on the other hand fails to hold captive a sizable audience. Having a record low opening for the franchise at $11m, despite the hook of uniting the two leads of the previous films, Home Invasion is unlikely to make it past $30m domestic, especially with rancid reviews and a tepid “C” CinemaScore.

 

  1. The Lost Empire - $18,219,649 (-40.3%)

  2. Home Invasion: Part III: Hunted - $11,012,892

  3. Green Lantern Corps: Home - $7,197,554 (-30.5%)

  4. The Ends of the Universe - $6,034,884 (-33.7%)

  5. Temple Run - $5,886,077 (-24.4%)

  6. Ms. Blakk 4 President - $3,015,881 (+36.0%)

  7. Gunman Clive - $2,541,536 (-50.9%)

  8. Birdwing - $2,404,449 (-20.6%)

  9. Tower of Babylon - $2,115,017 (+56.5%)

  10. White Wyvern - $1,941,869 (-65.4%)

 

Top 10 Gross: $60,369,808 (-12.7% from Y7) (-16.1% from last weekend)

February 2-4 (Super Bowl):

Moreno Sweeps Super Bowl Weekend Off Its Feet

 

Based on the game Tekken, Christie Moreno slightly overperforms Super Bowl weekend thanks to audiences in dire need of some new films and an non-tentpole action flick. With an “B+” CinemaScore, Moreno should have a pretty healthy run. As for holdovers, most films have taken slightly harsher drops due to the nature of Super Bowl weekend with Home Invasion taking the brunt of the blow, making a total under $30m, almost a guarantee. 

 

  1. Christie Monteiro - $27,612,453

  2. The Lost Empire - $9,310,241 (-48.9%)

  3. Home Invasion Part III: Hunted - $4,394,144 (-60.1%)

  4. Green Lantern Corps: Home - $3,915,881 (-45.6%)

  5. Temple Run - $3,488,338 (-40.7%)

  6. The Ends of the Universe - $3,204,285 (-46.9%)

  7. Birdwing - $1,819,356 (-24.3%)

  8. Ms. Blakk 4 President - $1,700,895 (-43.6%)

  9. White Wyvern - $1,534,750 (-49.1%)

  10. Gunman Clive - $1,324,140 (-47.9%)

February 9-11:

Audiences Take A Drive Down Romance Road and Cuddle with Adam and Cindy

 

Due to an underserved audience of African Americans (which the group made up 40% of the opening weekend), the fanbase of CAYOM starlet Naomi Scott and passable reviews for a romantic comedy, Infinite Studios’ Romance Road drastically overperformed its initial tracking and delivered an opening of nearly $34m. Romance Road scored a A- CinemaScore, indicating the film should cruise past $100m domestic. Phoenix Fire’s Adam and Cindy Valentine performed in line with what tracking said and had a solid little jump from the first film’s opening. With an A- CinemaScore, Adam and Cindy could survive before being annihilated by the newest Pokémon next weekend.

 

  1. Romance Road - $33,690,262

  2. Christie Monteiro - $15,076,399 (-45.4%)

  3. A Very Adam and Cindy Valentine - $11,451,677

  4. The Lost Empire - $5,539,593 (-40.5%)

  5. Green Lantern Corps: Home - $2,605,774 (-33.5%)

  6. Temple Run - $2,398,144 (-31.3%)

  7. The Ends of the Universe - $2,055,099 (-35.9%)

  8. Home Invasion Part III Hunted - $2,074,036 (-52.8%)

February 16-18 (President’s Day):

Pokémon Evolves Over The Competition as Funny Business Generates Decent Enough Laughs

 

As per usual, the latest Pokémon installment; Pokémon: The Case of The Orange Outrage blows up the box office, with the second highest weekend for the franchise at nearly $120m for the three day and a whopping $150m for the four day. Numerator Pictures should be very pleased with the films’ box office and with an “A” CinemaScore, it’s clear audiences enjoy it also. The question is will it have enough legs to get the franchise past the coveted $300m domestic mark. 

 

Meanwhile, new studio, The Workshop Inc.’s Funny Business opens modestly at just above a $7.5M opening weekend. Despite being much raunchier, comparisons felt too similar to Who Framed Roger Rabbit and the recent Toons v Reality, Funny Business couldn’t stand out compared to its competition. However, audience enjoyed it well enough with a “B” CinemaScore, Funny Business could make have a respectable total over $20m. Holdovers continue to hold well as Romance Road manages to keep it together after Valentines Day, indicating it could go over 100m and Ms. Blakk has a nice rise over the previous weekend.

 

  1. Pokémon: The Case of The Orange Outrage - $118,481,929/$150,376,869

  2. Romance Road - $18,057,980/$21,450,286 (-46.4%)

  3. Christie Monteiro - $9,392,597/$11,297,252 (-37.7%)

  9. The Ends of the Universe - $1,630,173 / $2,019,783 (-20.7%)

February 23-25:

Pokémon Continues To Blast Off as Holland Hannah Rocks Out Second Place

 

Orange Outrage continues its rampage at the box office, pulling above a $41.5m weekend. However, like all Pokémon movies, the second day weekend was brutal. Luckily, with Fable around the corner, perhaps Outrage could just slip by $300m. Alpha Pictures’ Holland Hannah outmuscled the tracking and delivered a rocking $15m opening weekend. With an “B+” CinemaScore, Hannah will definitely make a juicy profit for the studio, especially with its $7.5m budget.

 

  1. Pokémon: The Case of The Orange Outrage - $41,588,603 (-64.6%)

  2. Holland Hannah - $15,301,997

  3. Romance Road - $7,494,062 (-58.5%)

  6. The Lost Empire - $2,136,372 (-43.7%)

  7. Ms. Blakk 4 President - $1,216,101 (-18.8%)

  8. Temple Run - $1,204,282 (-34.9%)

  9. Green Lantern Corps: Home - $1,184,754 (-41.2%)

  10. The Ends of the Universe - $1,011,660 (-37.9%)
