Box Office Results: September 20, 2013 - September 22, 2013







Alright yall here are your box office results !!! There was still a strong breakout movie in the dark dramatic thriller Prisoners (Warner Bros.), starring Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano, Maria Bello, Terrence Howard and Melissa Leo. Directed by Oscar-nominated French-Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, the well-reviewed film about the search for two kidnapped girls brought in an estimated $21.4 million its opening weekend to take first place. After winning last weekend and becoming the second-biggest September opener, James Wan's hit horror sequel Insidious Chapter 2 (FilmDistrict) took a nasty 64% plunge in its second weekend, dropping to second place with $14.5 million, although its 10-day $60.9 million gross has already surpassed the gross of its predecessor. Luc Besson's crime-action flick The Family (Relativity), starring Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer, took in $7 million this weekend to take third place--down roughly 50% from its opening--with a total gross of $25.6 million so far. The hit Mexican comedy Instructions Not Included (Lionsgate/Pantelion) pulled well ahead of the pack, adding another $5.7 million in just 978 theaters to bring its total domestic gross to $34.4 million at fourth place. That weekend take is up 17% from last weekend, which is quite an anomaly, considering that it only added 45 extra theaters this weekend. The dance movie craze is officially over and apparently, so is Chris Brown's career, as Battle of the Year 3D (Screen Gems/Sony), the latest attempt to revive both, failed to find much of an audience, opening with just $5 million in 2,008 theaters, at fifth place averaging less than $2,500 per venue. Check out the list below for the remaining top 12 movies in theaters and check back friday for the latest movies in theaters.

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.
