The Box Office Report – January 18-20
Last week, in Box Office…
I honestly don’t even know what happened. That’s messed up. I didn’t even check.
Zero Dark Thirty won the weekend with $24.4 million. It only had like $5 million before this weekend, so — it made some money.
A Haunted House opened to $18 million, which I’m pretty sure I said it would. I know America is stupid. This should come as a surprise to nobody.
Gangster Squad opened to a decent $17 million opening. One would have hoped for better, but — shit happens. The reviews didn’t help.
Django Unchained — $11 million. It’s Quentin’s highest grossing movie of his career. Les Misérables — $9.6 million. They’ve doubled their budget. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey — $9.2 million. They’re gonna fall just shy of $300 million domestically. Lincoln — $6.3 million. $150 million there for them. Parental Guidance — $6.1 million. They’re in profit. Texas Chainsaw 3D — $5.3 million — $30 million after two weeks. It fell 76%. I’m sure they made it for like, $3.50 though, so it’s okay. Silver Linings Playbook — $5 million. They’ve doubled their budget.
Broken City — Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe. Mid teens. Probably like $16 million.
The Last Stand — Arnold Schwarzenegger and Johnny Knoxville. $12-13 million, probably. Maybe even $11 million and change.
Mama — horror movie. Most people expect it to do around $17-18 million. Maybe even $20 million. Meh.
Zero Dark Thirty — $17-18 million.
A Haunted House — $9 million.
Gangster Squad — $8-9 million. Maybe $10 million.
Django Unchained — $7 million.
Les Mis — $5 million.
The Hobbit — $5 million.
Amount of fucks I gave about this article? Zero dollars.
It’s Oscar time, people. I got better things to worry about.
