Box Office RESULTS: September 13, 2013 - September 15, 2013







Just two months after his horror movie The Conjuring opened with $41.8 million, Saw co-creator James Wan was back behind the camera of his first sequel, Insidious Chapter 2 (FilmDistrict), once again starring Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Lin Shaye, Ty Simpkins, Barbara Hershey and Wan's screenwriting partner Leigh Whannell, and it proved to be just as big a hit. 

It opened on Thursday night with previews that brought in $1.5 million, but it really exploded on its well-selected Friday the 13th opening day with $20.1 million. The anticipation for the sequel as well as its opening day accounted for the movie's frontloading, going by the studio's three-day weekend estimate of $41 million, which still makes it the second-highest opener for September as well as the second-biggest horror opening for the year just behind The Conjuring

Neither movie surpassed the opening for the third installment of Blumhouse Productions' flagship horror franchise Paranormal Activity 3 and its record-setting horror opening of $52.5 million, but both opened bigger than the movies in that series that preceded and followed it.


Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer and Tommy Lee Jones were the three big name veterans starring in the Luc Besson's crime-action flick The Family (Relativity), which opened in 3,091 theaters on Friday to take 2nd place with $14.5 million for the weekend.

Vin Diesel's return as Riddick (Universal) took a nasty plunge in its second weekend, dropping 63% to 3rd place with just $7 million and $31.3 million grossed in its first ten days.

The weekend saw a fairly close race for fourth place, but Lee Daniels' The Butler (The Weinstein Company) came out slightly ahead of the R-rated road comedy We're the Millers (New Line/WB) with $5.6 million to the latter's $5.4 million. The Weinsteins' historic drama looks to achieve the $100 million milestone including Sunday estimates while "Millers" has grossed $131.6 million since opening in early August. Check the rest of the list for the remainder of the top 12 films in theaters and we'll be back on friday with the latest batch of movie releases for you to check out !

Box Office RESULTS August 30, 2013 - September 1, 2013




Alright ladies and gents, here are the latest box office results. The conversation for a lot of the summer has revolved around how bad so many of this year's movies have been and yet, Exhibitor Relations reports it was a record summer at the domestic box office with this year's crop of films estimated to have brought in $4.75 billion (10.5% over 2012) with 582 million tickets sold, the highest number of tickets since 2007.

Leading the charge on this final weekend was Morgan Spurlock's One Direction: This is Us concert documentary, which opened with an estimated $17 millionand received an "A" CinemaScore from the groupies in attendance. Expectations are for the film to cross $20.5 million by the end of the four day weekend.
Moving on to the Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez thriller Getaway I have to wonder, what kept fans away? Was it the 2% RottenTomatoes rating or were the trailers enough? Maybe it was simply word of mouth as opening night audiences gave it a "C+" CinemaScore, which pretty much translates to an "F" and for good reason, the movie is terrible and it reflects in its $4.5 million opening.
The biggest news of this weekend, however, is the staying power of Lee Daniels' The Butler, which only dropped 11% in its second weekend for $14.7 million, bringing its domestic cume to $74 million. Oscar talk may be ramping up with screenings out of Telluride and Venice, but The Butler is putting money where its mouth is and has assured us it will be part of the conversation over the coming award season. 
Below that we have Focus' new thriller Closed Circuit, which the studio opened on Wednesday and played in only 862 theaters this weekend and it wasn't playing to full houses. The film brought in an estimated $2.5 million and it's likely the last time we'll even hear of it.
Just below Closed Circuit is Wong Kar Wai's Grandmaster, which expanded into 749 theaters this weekend and brought home $2.4 million. Check out the list below for the remainder of the top 12 films in theaters.
