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.

New releases…

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.
