Weekend Box Office Results 7/18/10

18 Jul

Great word-of-mouth combined with a all-star cast, not to mention one of the smartest directors of the last decade, all helped to boost Inception to the top of this weekend’s box office.  Leonardo DiCaprio received his highest opening weekend numbers to date with the film.

The other new release, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, failed to win over viewers and couldn’t even bring in $20 million.  For a film that had a budget estimated at $150 million, the numbers are anything but promising.

Box Office Mojo’s Top 10 Box Office Estimates for 7/16-7/18:

1. Inception – $60.4 million
2. Despicable Me – $32.7 million
3. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice – $17.3 million
4. The Twilight Saga: Eclipse – $13.5 million
5. Toy Story 3 – $11.7 million
6. Grown Ups – $10 million
7. The Last Airbender – $7.4 million
8. Predators – $6.8 million
9. Knight & Day – $3.7 million
10. The Karate Kid – $2.2 million

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse wasn’t able to claim a second week atop the box office this weekend.  The animated film, Despicable Me, took that honor with a very healthy $60+ million.

Predators did well with over $25 million, which was good enough for third place on the charts.  Eclipse did have a smaller second week decrease than its predecessor, New Moon, so Summit will be happy about that.  The Last Airbender and Grown Ups each reached the $100 million mark this weekend as well.

This weekend was dominated by vampires.  The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the third film in the hugely successful series, created by Stephenie Meyer, topped the box office.  After only five days of release, Summit Entertainment has already raked in a $100 million+ profit.

The Last Airbender was given horrific reviews across the board, but still managed to bring in a respectable number this weekend.

Weekend Box Office Results 6/27/10

28 Jun

Even with two new well publicized films entering the race this weekend, it was last week’s reigning champ, Toy Story 3, that won the weekend.

Adam Sandler’s Grown Ups did remarkably well and would have topped the box office if it weren’t for the Pixar juggernaut of Toy Story.  Tom Cruise’s Knight & Day was very disappointing and came in a distant third with $20 million.

Weekend Box Office Results 6/20/10

20 Jun

It’s no big surprise that Toy Story 3 reigned over this weekend’s box office.  The Pixar classic brought in over $100 and bested its competitors by a whopping $70+ million.

The Karate Kid managed to bring in another $30, but did drop off almost 50% from last weekend’s fantastic opening.  Jonah Hex bombed with only about $5 million in ticket sales.  Twitter and various film reviews crucified the film every chance it got.

13 Jun

11-year-old Jaden Smith made a huge name for himself this weekend after his film, The Karate Kid, cleaned up and took top honors at the box office.  It exceeded all predictions for its gross and looks to only build upon the good word-of-mouth.

The A-Team fell short of expectations, but still managed to bring in more than $25 million.
