US Weekend

Denzel Washington's "Equalizer" takes top spot this weekend, opening at $35M which ranks as the 4th best bow for a September picture, slightly lower than the $35.4M of "Sweet Home Alabama"'. and for Washiington is 20% up on his last pic "Two Guns" which bowed to $27M in August of Last Year and 31% up on the $24M opening of "Flight". Those pictures closed on $75M and $95M respecively.

It ranks as his all-time 3rd best gross, trailing the $40M of "Safe House" which closed at $126M.

Demographics, the picture skewed slightly Make with 52% of the audience being Men, 65% of the audience were over 30. Exiting audience scored the picture 9/10.

"Maze Runner" dropped 46% bringing in $17.5M this weekend which brings its 10-day Cume to $58M. In comparison, "Divergent" dropped 53% in its 2nd weekend though after 10-days "Divergent" had taken $94M. "Fault In Our Stars" dropped 69% in its 2nd weekend and 10-day stood at $80.8M.

"Maze Runner" should close at around $90M.

Laika Animation's "Box Trolls" debuted to $17.2M, the studio's best opening in N. America, besting "Coraline"'s $16.8M though "Corpse Bride" had a phased opening debuting to $388K across just 5 theatres and widening a week later to $23M.

Because of this staged bow, "Box Trolls" ranks as the2nd best debut for s stop-motion pic, narrowly beaten by Aardman's "Chicken Run" which opened at $17.5M (so it may be usurped when the Actuals are released tomorrow). "Chicken Run" closed at $106M

57% of "Boxtroll"'s audience were Female, there was no age breakdown. but the audience awarded the pic 8.5/10. "Coralline" with $75M currently ranks as Laika's highest grossing picture but at the moment Boxtroll looks as if it'll close around $60M

"This is Where I Leave You" takes 4th spot, falling just 39% with a take of $7M, the picture has at least matched its budget of $20M

"Dolphin Tale 2" took $4.8M, after 3 weekends the picture has grossed $33.7M. The original picture had grossed $49M by the end of its 3rd weekend and thus the 2nd pic is more than $15M shy of its original.

Poor Liam, if last weekend's bow of just $12M for "A Walk Among the Tombstones" disappointed this weekend it dropped a huge 66.8% with a take of $4.8M the picture has accumulated just $20.8M and is in danger of not matching its modest $28M budget.

"Guardians of the Galaxy" took $3.8M, the picture has now grossed $319M this means that the picture has now outgrossed the $318M of "Iron Man" and ranks as Marvel's 6th highest grossing picture, now trailing the $336M of "Spider-Man 3".

It ranks as the 34th best selling picture in N. America, trailing the $319M of 2007's "Transformers" and the $322M of "Shrek".

"Let's Be Cops" picked up $1.5M the picture has now grossed $79.6M, ranking it as the year's 27th highest grossing pic, trailing the $83M of "The Other Woman" and the $84M of "Tammy"

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" took a further $1.4M bringing its Cume to $187M, it's still not moved out of that 11th highest grossing picture of the year, still trailing the $191M of "22 Jump Street". Though it still lacks has sufficient life left in it to overtake "Jump Street" it will have only a short while before "Interstellar" and "Big Hero 6" open in 5 weekends time

Code:
1.  “The Equalizer”               $35.0M          3,236  $10,816   $35.0M   $55M

Overseas Weekend

"Maze Runner" holds the top spot for a 2nd weekend, expanding by a further 14 markets this week it took $27.5M.

Though it seems to be hold-overs that have provided the chunk of the weekend.Second Weekends In S. Korea earned the picture $4.9M for $12.2M. Australia generated a further $2.7M for $8.1M, $2.6M in Russia for $10.2M, Spain $1.3M for $3.9M. Brazil $1.3M for $3.9M.

In Mexico a 3rd weekend earned the picture $1.4M for $7.9M

After 3 weekends the picture has grossed $91M Offshore, this weekend there appear to be no major market releases but next weekend the circus decamps to Western Europe's major markets with debuts in The UK and Italy with France and Germany on subsequent weeks.

Globally the picture has now accumulated $149M, 4x more than its budget.

Denzel Washington's "Equalizer" opened in 64 Offshore Markets this weekend and took $17.8M, probably not a great take for such a Global release.

"Equalizer" took top spot in the UK with a bow of $2.8M, only slightly up on the $2.2M bow of both "Two Guns" and "Flight". In Russia the picture bowed to $2.7M also taking the top spot up on "Two Guns" bow of $1.9M and considerably up on the $800K bow of "Flight" (where drunk pilots is a matter of daily life :) ). The picture also opened in Mexico and Brazil to $1.4M and $1.3M respectively.

In China, Child-abduction thriller "Dearest" opened to $13.5M.

"Lucy" added a further $11.1M this weekend, bowing in Italy to $3.2M aking the top spot in the market. Italy marks the end of its release schedule.

"Lucy" has now grossed a Worldwide $394M, ranking as the 12th highest grossing picture of the year. It already ranks as Besson's highest grossing picture for both Directing and Writing, For Johansson it ranks as her 4th, unable to make a dent in her Marvel pics, the lowest of which, "Iron Man2", grossed a Worldwide $632M

Except in France, where the picture has grossed $40M, and has just pipped "The Avengers" gross of $37M.

"Boxtrolls" widened by a further 5 Offshore Markets this weekend as well as debuting in N. America but only managed $5.1M. Russia debuted to $1.1M sufficient to award it 5th spot about on-par with "Para-Norman"'s debut of $1.2M in the market.

A 3rd weekend in the UK earned the film $1.2M for a local Cume of $8M. In the market "Paranorman" closed with $9M and "Coraline" $12M.

With a Worldwide Cume of $34.9M, next week the picture debuts in Brazil and Italy.

"Sex Tape" took $5.1M this weekend there doesn't appear to be any breakdown of markets but the film has now grossed a Worldwide $117M meaning is has outgrossed "Pompeii"'s $108M and "Transcendence"'s $103M

Still waiting on its Chines debut (October 10) "Guardians of the Galaxy" took $4M this weekend, providing it with a Worldwide $644M making it the year's 7th highest grossing picture.

Outside of the US, the UK is by far the film's champion having grossed $45M, 13% of the Offshore gross. Next is Russia with $32M then Australia with $22M. France and Germany providing $19M each.

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" appear to have lost 9 Offshore markets this weekend, dropping from 50 to 41 (the picture has been on release since it debuted in Chile on August 7th but doesn't reach Europe until it opens in the UK on October 11).

With no debuts this weekend, "Turtles" was only able to scrape up $4M, $1.7M from Australia where it now stands at $12M after 3 weekends.

Worldwide the picture has grossed $342M ranking it as the year's 15th highest grossing picture, chasing down "Noah"'s $359M and "Edge of Tomorrow"'s $369M.

"Into The Storm" took a further $3.4M thanks to a number of openings in S. America, highest of which was Argentina where the pic took $470K. giving it #2 slot. China stands as the picture's largest market with $16.6M, followed by S. Korea with $15.8M Mexico ranks 3rd with $9.5M and Russia with $6.7M.

"Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" is now out of new markets but still managed to earn a further $3.9M with China providing $1.3M pushing its Cume to $107M where it ranks as 7th highest grossing picture of the year.

Worldwide "Apes" has now grossed $695M where it still ranks as the 6th highest grossing picture of the year.

With "Guardians" about $50M behind and "Winter Soldier" having grossed $115M in the Market it'll be interesting to see if "Guardians" can overtake not-only "Apes" but also "Amazing Spider-Man 2" at $714M and "Days of Future Past" at $746M, even "Maleficent" at $756M.

More annoyance for Liam, "Non-Stop" took $3M this weekend (all thanks to China where the picture has grossed $7.3M, Meanwhile "Among the Tombstones" was only able to raise $2.1M this weekend

"Non-Stop" has now grossed $212M keeping it as the year's 24th highest grossing picture with #23, "Hercules" trying to crawl away with $2.5M this weekend which brings its Cume to $233M

Predicted Weekend

This weekend David Fincher's "Gone Girl" hits the theatres.

Fincher's last pic "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" got off to a bit of a disappointing start, bowing to just $12.7M, though it closed in the US at $102M (exceeding its $90M budget) thus ranking as his 2nd highest grossing picture (beaten by the $127M of "Benjamin Button").

Prior to "Dragon Tattoo", "Social Network" bowed at $22M and "Benjamin Button" $26M so low to mid-20's could be reasonably expected, but "Gone Girl" is a delight of Reading Groups across the land and they are expected to swell the audience and is currently anticipated to take around $30M this weekend.

WB are pushing "Annabelle" as a prequel to last year's "The Conjuring", that picture bowed to $41M and closed at $137M in the US (cost just $20M). No-one is expecting "Annabelle" to do that kind of business but low 20's seems to be on the cards

Faith based pictures have done tremendously well this year, particularly over Lenten where attending the cinema seemed to have become an Article of Faith. Missing the boat somewhat comes "Left Behind" adopted from the "Left Behind" books/comics that tell of those that were not taken by the Rapture.

Starring Nicholas Cage who can at times still get a good debut "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" but lately his pictures have struggled to get even a theatrical distribution. Earlier this year "Joe" only made it to 48 theatres. There was nothing at all in 2013 while in 2012 "Stolen" made it to just 141 screens and "Seeking Justice" 231

The fact that "Left Behind" is expected to bow to $6M and that ("Ghost Rider" aside) will rank as his best opening since 2011's "Season of the Witch"'s $10M speaks to how far he's fallen

Code:
1.  “Gone Girl”     Predicted Weekend   $30.0M
2.  “Annabelle”                         $22.0M
3.  “The Equalizer”                     $16.5M
4.  “The Maze Runner”                   $10.0M
5.  “The Boxtrolls”                      $9.5M
6.  “Left Behind”                        $6.0M
7.  “This is Where I Leave You”          $3.5M
8.  “Dolphin Tale 2”                     $3.0M
9.  “Guardians of the Galaxy”            $2.5M
10. “Let’s Be Cops”                      $1.0M

US Weekend

Opening at $38M this weekend, "Gone Girl" marks a personal best for Fincher, beating his previous best "Panic Room" which opened at $30M in 2002 (Adjusted that would be around $38M & "Dragon Tattoo")

The picture ranks as the 10th best opening for an October released picture, "Gravity" taking the top spot which opened this weekend last year to $55M. Fir Affleck the picture ranks as his 3rd best bow, beaten by 2003's "Daredevil" with a debut of $40M and 2001's "Pear Harbor" which opened with $59M

Exit scores weren't too impresses ranking the picture 8/10. Demographics indicate that 75% of the films audience were aged 25 or older and 60% of the audience were Female. This is slightly out of the norm for a Fincher movie (checking back 55% of "Dragon Tattoo"'s audience were men). It seems that the book-groups came out in force.

Biggest surprise of the weekend was "Annabelle", a prequel to last year's "The Conjuring". The film was only expected to pick up around $20M over the weekend about half of its predecessors bow of $40M,but on Friday took $15.5M beating "Gone Girl"'s $13.2M

That wasn't too much of a surprise as the picture was always expected to do well with the Friday Night Date crowd, but Saturday it dropped just 9% to produce $14M only narrowly losing to "Gone Girl"'s $15.2M

Going into Sunday, "Annabelle" is just ahead with a gross of $29.5M to "Gone Girl"'s $28.3M. "Gone Girl" is expecting to take $9.6M Sunday, "Annabelle" $7.7M hence giving it the weekend but we won;t know for sure until tomorrow's Actuals.

So close on the heels of "Gone Girl","Annabelle" ranks as the 11th best bow for a October picture.

51% of "Annabelle"'s audience were Female and 54% of the audience were under the age of 25.

Like "Gone Girl", exiting audience members awarded the pic 8/10. "Conjuring"'s $40M represented 30% of its eventual close of $137M. Friday's take accounted for 41% of the weekend while for the "Conjuring" Friday represented 39% of its Weekend.

Thus, it wouldn't bee too much of a reach to predict "Annabelle" will close at around $80M-$90M and with a budget of just $7M Sequels of the Prequel are a shoe-in


Denzil Washington's "The Equalizer" dropped 44% in its 2nd weekend, with a take of $19M which pushes its cume to $64.5M, comfortably over its budget of $55M

In comparison, "Two Guns" grossed just $48M in its first 10, "Flight" $47M, "Safe House" $77M. Those picture closed with $75M, $93M and $126M respectively so "Equalizer" still looks set to break the $100M mark.

"Boxtrolls" dropped a very light 28% this weekend picking up $12.4M which brings its gross after 10-days to $32.5M.

After 10-days "ParaNorman" had grossed $28M, it closed at $56M, "Coraline" $35M and close with $75M, thus "Boxtrolls" shpuld clear its $60M budget but not by a huge amount, maybe around $65M

In the genre of Stop-Motion animation, the pic has outgrossed "Pirates: band of Misfits" North American take of $31M and ranks as the 8th highest grossing picture. Trailing the $35M of 2012's "Frankenweenie" and then there's quite a jump to the $53M of "Corpse Bride"

"Maze Runner" earned itself a further $12M it has now accumulated $73.9M. In terms of this year's YA adaptations, it's overtaken "The Giver"'s $44M and "Vampire Academy"'s $7M and obviously will fail to approach the $124M of "Fault in our Stars" or the $150M of "Divergent"

In the rank of overall YA adaptations (which is dominated by "Harry Potter" and "Twilight", it ranks 24th, $2M South of "Eragon" and then the $82M of "Bridge to Terrabithia" both of which it should have no problem overtaking. "The Lightnining Thief" at $88M may prove more of a challenge. "Maze Runner" has now been out for 17 days. After 17 days, "Lightning Thief" had grossed $70M.

Nicholas Cage's "Left Behind" opened at $6.8M, about as expected. This ranks as his best opening since 2012's "Ghost Rider" bow of $22M, omit that then you go back to 2011's "Season of the Witch"'s debut of $10.6M and "Sorcerer's Apprentice" of $17.6M

It ranks as his 33rd best debut (out of an amazing 62) trailing the $6.9M of '86's "Peggy Sue Got Married" and the $7M of '94's "Guarding Tess"

Of the year's Faith based pictures, that's better than "Mom's Night Out" $4.6M bow (close $10.4M), but lower than"God's Not Dead"'s $9M (close $90M),

No demographics were recorded, the exiting audience awarded the film just 6/5/10

Guardians of the Galxy is still in the top 10 for a 10th weekend, this weekend it picked up a further $3M and now stands at $323.7M from N. America.

This still leaves it as Marvel's 6th highest grossing picture, still $13M South of "Spider-Man 3" which its probably not going to reach and ranks as the 32nd highest grossing picture in N. American Box Office History. This weekend it overtook the $323M of "Shrek 3" and is now crawling towards the $330M of "Forest Gump"

Nothing else to really report, "Dolphin Take 2" and "This Is Where I Leave You" have both exceeded their budget but even "Dolphin Tale" only managed to attract $23M (24% of its Worldwide Gross) neither will actually turn a profit. Which is not the case for "No Good Deed" which at $50.2M is easily over the 3x budget figure

Code:
                                                Th’res Average   Gross    Budget
1.  “Gone Girl”                 $38.0M          3,014  $12,608   $38.0M   $61M
2.  “Annabelle”                 $37.2M          3,185  $11,680   $37.2M    $7M
3.  “The Equalizer”             $19.0M  -44.3%  3,236   $5,871   $64.5M   $55M
4.  “The Boxtrolls”             $12.4M  -28.1%  3,464   $3,587   $32.5M   $60M
5.  “The Maze Runner”           $12.0M  -31.2%  3,605   $3,329   $73.9M   $34M

It seems that one reason for "Gone Girl" did so much better than expected was Analysts believed Middle America would be deterred by the Movies sex-scenes and would thus avoid the film (presumably to watch something with Trucks)

This turned out not to be the case and the demographics across all of N. America were fairly consistent

Overseas Weekend

Don't think I've seen a weekend where SE. Asia, an in particular China where a public holiday was celebrated, dominated the Offshore Chart quite so much

Topping the chart this weekend is Chinese road-trip/comedy "Breakup Buddies" which bowed to $38M and that tells of two friends who go on a road-trip following a breakup in one of their relationships. The picture was so popular as it re-teamed the actors Xu Zheng and Huang Bo whose last movie together "Lost in Thailand" took $200M

Gone Girl opened in 39 Offshore territories this weekend and grabbed $24M for itself.

Top offshore market was the UK where the picture took $6.9M, considerably up on the $2.3M bow for "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" in the market, and up on the $4M bow of "Social Network". Australia produced $4.6M, Russia $2.9M, Germany $2.8M. Surprisingly Mexico produced just $689K while Brazil $860K. The worries that distributors had over Mid-West releases seem to be true in S. and Central America.

Bang Bang just failed to make it into the US top 10 (#12 with $1.2M) but managed to take $24M offshore. The film is apparently a Bollywood retelling of the Cruise/Cameron picture "Knight and Day" which died in the US ($76M on a $117M budget) became a minor Worldwide hit taking $261M Globally).

India produced the rump of the weekend, generating $19.2M, the UAE $1.8M and the UK $982K

Opening in 25 markets, in advance of its US release this weekend, Dracula Untold generated $21M. Mexico leading the way with $5M. The UK produced $2.7M, Germany $2.4M, France $2.1M and Australia $1.9M. Next weekend, as well as opening in the US the picture will widen into Russia and S. Korea.

Annabelle earned $23M Offshore, with S. Korea leading the way taking $3M on a par with the $3.4M debut of the "Conjuring" in the market, Australia produced $1.7M ($1.6M for the "Conjuring") and Italy $1.2M ($1.3M). "The Conjuring" produced $180M Offshore by these figures it looks as if "Annabelle" is on course to do the same.

The Maze Runner took $16.5M this weekend, a 3rd weekend in S. Korea producing $3M for $16.7M and now stands as the picture's largest offshore market. Australia produced $1.8M for $11.8M and Russia $1.3M for $13M. This weekend the picture debuts in Italy and the UK while France and Germany debut the following weekend.

The Equalizer widened by a further 6 markets this weekend, the only major being France where it opened to $2M which is about usual for a Denzel Washington pic, "Flight" debuted at $2M and "Safe House" $2.2M.

Elsewhere the UK produced $2M for a 2 week $7M, Russia $1.2M for $5M and Brazil $8.7K for $2.6M

Boxtrolls earned $6M this weekend with the UK producing $1.7M for $9.9M and Australia $1.1M for $5M. There are no major markets due this weekend though next week it opens in France and Germany the week after,

Lucy took a further $5M this weekend. Worldwide the film has earned $406M (off a $40M budget) ranking it as the year's 12th highest grossing picture, trailing the $468M of the "Lego Movie"

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles finds itself in the doldrums this weekend with only Venezuela being the only bow (to $1M). Things are about to change as next week the picture opens in France, Germany and the UK while October 31 sees it hit China

In the meantime the picture has grossed a Worldwide $349M (the US providing 53% of the gross) and ranks as the year's 15th highest grossing picture, $10M South of "Noah" and $20M short of "Edge of Tomorrow".

Guardians of the Galaxy opens in China this week, currently the UK stands as its largest Offshore market having produced $46.9M. Worldwide it has grossed $653M ranking it as the year's 7th highest grossing picture and Marvel's 10th highest grossing picture. In both cases the next film to beat is "Amazing Spider-Man 2" which grossed a Worldwide $709M

US Weekend

Well talk about close, "Gone Girl" took $37.513M over the weekend while "Annabelle" took $37.134M, so "Gone Girl" retains its #1 spot but by the narrowest of margins

In fact its $378,854 difference ranks as 17th closest. The title belongs to a 1993 film called "CB4" (starred Chris Rock and Ice Cube) and "Fire in the Sky". "CB4" bowed to $6.122M while "Fire in the Sky" opened at $6.116M a difference of just $5,966.

Closer to modern days, 2008's "Meet the Spartans" opened to $18.505M, just $301,654 ahead of "Rambo"s $18.203M and ranks as the 15th closest.

Predicted Weekend

An interesting weekend as there's quite some jostling predicted for the top few slots

Big question will be is how heavy will "Gone Girl" fall, a 50% drop would put it around $18M, 40% would give it around $22M, most predictions are saying that the picture should fall around the 40 percentile mark which should be sufficient to put it at the top of the charts. Don't be too surprised

"Annabelle" surprised the analysts last weekend, almost taking the top spot and has done well over the mid-week having picked up a further $7M. "The Conjuring" dropped 47% in its 2nd weekend which if it were the case of "Annabelle" we'd be looking at a $19.6M weekend, but most are talking of a 50% drop so "Annabelle" should be coming in at around $18M

Monday is Columbus day when Americans traditionally celebrate Genocide and Mattress sales, but outside of Schools, Banks and Public institutions is largely ignored.

Disney release "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" in the hopes of picking up some of the holiday cash. They have had some successes, "Real Steel" bowed to $27M in 2011, but "Here Comes the Boom" bowed to just $11M in 2012 and "Frankweenie" also $11M in 2012. Last year there doesn't appear to have been a particular Columbus Day Movie and "Gravity" bowed to $50M the weekend before.

"Alexander" is seeing quite a variety of predictions, ranging as high as $20M or as low as $14M, currently it looks as if it stands a chance of taking the #1 spot if "Gone Girl" suffers from those 8/10 scores it was picking up last weekend.

Robert Downey Jr's "The Judge" might be in contention if it performs a bit better than it's tracking. Though RDJ is certainly an A++ name his performance outside of Marvel and Sherlock Holmes hasn't been tested greatly. His last picture outside of these genres was 2010's "Due Date" which opened at an impressive $32M and closed with $100M.

Currently the thinking seems to be that most of "Iron Man 3"'s $174M bow won't be particularly interested in this picture and "Gone Girl" will be competing for the same audience. The picture is expected to open with around $15M-$16M

"Dracula Untold" lacks box-office names to help draw in the audience, though awareness for the picture is surprisingly strong. Worryingly "I Frankenstein" bowed to just $8M and closed with $19M indicating the US audience may not be interested in a reboot of the legend they already feel they know. Currently the pic is looking at around $14M

"Addicted" is based up the book of the same name and tells of a woman, Zoe, who finds married life isn't enough for her and starts sleeping with other partners to satisfy her sexual-addiction. The picture is opening in just 800 theatres this weekend and should bow to around $7M-$8M

Code:
1.  “Gone Girl”    Predicted Weekend   $22.0M
2.  “Alexander”                        $20.0M
3.  “Annabelle”                        $18.2M
4.  “The Judge”                        $16.0M
5.  “Dracula Untold”                   $14.5M
6.  “The Equalizer”                    $10.0M
7.  “The Boxtrolls”                     $8.0M
8.  “Addicted”                          $7.5M
9.  “The Maze Runner”                   $7.0M
10. “Left Behind”                       $2.5M

Really bad news for those of us amateur box-office pundits. It seems that Box Office Mojo is no more it's been folded into IMDB, both of which are owned by Amazon

Damm! Another site to knock off my favourites list!

However, it's not the only site that reports box office results right? If a lot of the data is behind a firewall people will surely just start going elsewhere as all there SEO collapses.

Plenty of sites for the week's numbers but BMJ was great for telling you the films that had the best 7th weekend. Wonder if Ray Subers has database exports :)

US Weekend

"Dracula Unbound" surprised many pundits last night as what was supposed to be a $14.5M underachieving picture had the temerity to take Friday Night with $8.9M, pushing Gone Girl into 2nd spot with $8.19M. "Dracula"'s single day overtook the $8.6M Opening Weekend of "I Frankenstein" and now Analysts are predicting the pic should take around $24M over the weekend. However this will place it 2nd to "Gone Girl" which is looking at around $29M

Annabelle took 3rd spot with $5.24M while Alexander took $5.23M

"Alexanders" $5.23M isn't too much of a worry for Disney, Family pictures always perform poorly on Friday Night and it's already ahead of "Muppets Most Wanted" which took 4.6M on its debut Friday and closed the weekend with $17M. "Alexander" is currently looking at $18M

Robert Downey Jr's The Judge is finding it hard going, taking $4.42M on Friday and now is predicted to weekend with $13..2M

And just as quietly as it went away, Box OfficeMojo returned

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/b ... ing-740156

Some say it was just a technical glittch, those more conspiratorially minded claim it as was Amazon didn't quite realise how many people in the industry use a free site and when they start phoning Jeff Bezos directly people responsible for the original decision started to see the error of their ways

Either way, glad you're back, you were missed :banana:

Having looked around one thing is noticeable is that editorial content seems to have gone, so it looks like Ray Subbers and the others who wrote the articles appear to be away

US Weekend

After 11 weekends on release, this week "Guardians of the Galaxy" drops from the top 10 with a take of $1.8M which puts it at #12. "E.T" is the film to have spent the most weeks consecutive weeks in the top 10, having hung in there for 35 consecutive weekends and has spent 42 in total in the top 10.

Despite losing Friday to "Dracula", Gone Girl takes the top spot this weekend adding a further $26.8M to its 10-day which now stands at $78.3M. "Benjamin Button" opened on a Thursday, and Christmas Day, so direct comparison will be hard, but after 10-days "Benjamin Button" had grossed $74.9M so "Gone Girl" is looking in good form to become Fincher's highest grossing picture

It already ranks 6th having overtaken the $55M of "Alien 3" and now chasing the $96M of both "Panic Room" and "Social Network".

For Affleck the picture ranks as his 10th highest grossing picture, chasing the $92M of 2010's "The Town" and the $93M of "He's Just Not That Into You". For Rosamund Pike the picture ranks as her 4th highest grossing picture, trailing the $80M of "Jack Reacher" and the $83.6M of "Wrath of the Titans" (both for 2012).

Dracula Untold beat expectations this weekend taking $23.4M, earning $8.9M on Friday which gave it the day's #1 spot. The Friday represents 38% of the overall weekend so it doesn't appear to be too front-loaded and the picture's exit scores come in at 8.5/10. Imax accounted for 17% of the weekend's gross and represented 9 out of the film's top10 venues and in one weekend has already surpassed "I Frankenstein"'s close of just $19M

The picture ranks as the 29th best bow for a picture released in October, just behind the $24.7M of "Zombieland" and that picture closed at $75M in 2009.

Demographics, 57% of the audience were Male and though ethnically diverse Hispanics represented 33% of the audience.

Disney's Alexander performed as expected, taking $19.1M this weekend but had to settle for 3rd spot. The film stars Steve Carrel and Jennifer Garner and marks Carrel's 16th best bow and Garner's 4th best

The picture was 14% behind "Diary of a Wimpy Kid"'s $22M bow in 2010 and that picture went on to close with $64M. Demographics, 54% of the audience were Female, Families comprised 67% of the audience and 57% of the audience were under the age of 25. The exit score was 8.5/10.

Annabelle fell slightly stronger (55.9%) than expected, giving it a $16.4M and after 10-days has grossed $62.1M. In Comparison "The Conjuring" fell 46.9% in its 2nd weekend and after 10-days had grossed $83.9M but with a budget of $20M cost 3x as much as "Annabelle".

"Annabelle" is looking like it has about another $20M left in it which would put its close at around $85M

Robert Downey Jr is undoubtedly a A++ star in name recognition but its dubious if he can actually open a film that isn't "Iron Man". Bowing at $13.3M, The Judge was below mid-week expectations and ranks as his 15th best bow. If there's any happiness for Downey, the picture at least bowed 37% higher than the "Soloist"'s 2009 debut of $9.7M, Downey's last non-franchise pic

Females made up the majority (55%) of the audience, 50% of the audience were over the age of 50, 71% were aged over 35, 85% were either aged 25 or older.

Like its fellow openers it scored a 8.5/10 exit score

Entering its 3rd weekend Denzil Washington's The Equalizer dropped 48.1% this weekend, taking $9.7M bringing its gross to $79.9M now ranking as his 10th highest grossing picture, having overtaken the $75M of "Two Guns", the $76M of "Training Day" and the $77M of "Man on Fire". It now trails the $81M of "Unstoppable". At this point in its life "Flight" had grossed $61M and went on to close with $93M so "Equalizer" still looks assured of a $100M close

Playing primarily to Afro-Americans (72%) Addicted took $7.6M, but only playing on 846 screens actually ranks as the best theatre average of the weekend. Females represented 73% of the audience.

Maze Runner earned a further $7.5M this weekend pushing its Cume to $83.8M. "Maze Runner" still ranks as the 22nd highest grossing Young Adult Novel Adaptation pic, attempting to close in on the $88M pf "The Lightning Thief". This weekend it overtook "Bridge to Terabithia"'s $82.3M

Boxtrolls took $6.7M after 3 weekends it has now grossed $41M, in the US it's starting to look to be a bit of a dud, still ranking as their 4th highest grossing pic (out of 4) and a huge $12M shy of 2005's "Corpse Bride". A bit of a disappointment as it was hoped it would actually compete with the $75M of "Coraline"

In the genre of stop-motion, the pic ranks 7th which is where it's likely to stay as "Corpse Bride" holds the 6th spot

Nicholas Cage's Left Behind almost suffered the indignity of dropping straight out of the 10 after just one weekend. On Friday it came in at 11th behind "Meet the Mormons" but over the weekend it came in just $200K ahead of "Mormans" and took the 10th spot

Code:
                                      Th’res Averge  Gross    Budget

Overseas Weekend

Widening by a further 17 Offshore Markets, Dracula Untold takes the top spot this weekend amassing $33.9M. Russia leading the way with $9.6M making it the year's, 2D Only, biggest release. In S. Korea the picture debuted to $4.6M.

Of the Holdovers, Mexico produced $3.6M for a 2 weekend cume of $9.5M

"Dracula" has now grossed a Worldwide $86.1M which with most of the majors out of the way doesn't seem to be that huge a figure and with another $60M to make before it starts to look at profitability (Deadline says Universal are out of pocket to around $150M) it probably won't end as a huge success.

A $26.6M 3-day debut in China returns Guardians of the Galaxy to the chart, taking the #2 spot with a $28M weekend.

The debut weekend marks Marvel's 3rd best debut in the market, trailing the $64.5M debut of "Iron Man 3" and the $38M of "Winter Soldier". Though it ranks as the 8th best bow of the year. It doesn't seem to be quite the opening that Marvel had hoped for as at one time they were talking of a $100M gross from China, "Winter Solder" bowed at $38M closed at $115M but now it's looking more like "Godzilla" $37M bow, close at $77M. So maybe $80M from China is more likely

"Guardians" has now grossed a Worldwide $687.1M, which still leaves it as the 7th highest grossing, chasing the $699M of "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" and the $709M of "Amazing Spider-Man 2" both of which are eminently passable

Of Marvel's total pictures the "Guardians" ranks 10th with "Amazing Spider-Man 2" in 9th spot and "Winter Soldier" in 8th with a gross of $714M. "Days of Future Past" with a gross of $746M may be just out of reach.

Gone Girl took $27M this weekend, with a 2nd weekend in the UK providing the best box office where it earned a further $5M for a cume of $16.1M. Australia produced $3.8M for $10.6M. In France the picture debuted to $3.6M while Germany produced $2.1M for $5.5M

Worldwide "Gone Girl" has now grossed $141.3M making it Fincher's 7th highest grossing picture trailing the $159M of "Aliens 3".

Annabelle also earned $27M this weekend , France producing the best weekend where a debut of $3.8M just pipped "Gone Girl" to the #1 spot and beat "The Conjuring"'s $2.4M bow in the market. In the UK the picture took $3.1M putting it in #2 slot behind "Gone Girl", this is only slightly behind "Conjuring"'s $3.2M bow in the market.Brazil debuted at $2.8M ahead of "Conjuring"'s $1.7M

Worldwide the picture, made for just $7M has now accumulated $122.4M

Maze Runner took $13.7M this weekend, beginning its European Run in the UK where it took $3.2M giving it #3 spot. The film has now grossed a Worldwide $223M ranking it as the year's 24th highest grossing picture, $2M behind "Hercules" and then it will be chasing the $242M of "Robocop".

China's "Breakup Buddies" picked up a further $13M this weekend and has now earned $141M ranking it as the year's 3rd highest grossing picture trailing "Age of Extinction"'s $301M and "The Monkey King"'s $167M

The Equalizer generated $11.5M this weekend, Germany appearing to be the top earning market where it earned $2.5M and gave it the #1 slot in the market.

France produced $1.3M where the picture has grossed $3.9M after 2 weekends, Italy bowed with $1.2M giving it the #2 spot, A 3rd weekend in the UK produced $1M for a Cume of $9M.

Worldwide "The Equalizer" has grossed $137M making it Washington's 13th highest grossing movie, trailing the $150M of 2009's "Taking of Pelham 123". It's interesting to note that Washington is a much bigger star in the US than Offshore as the US has lately been producing around 55% of his Worldwide Grosses. Normally you'd expect the positions to be reversed.

A one weekend only special "One Direction: Where We Are" produced $5M, $1.6M from the UK doesn't appear to be any info on the other 25 markets.

Indian Knight and Day remake Bang Bang earned $4.7M, $3.5M from India for a Cume of $29.6M

With only minor markets opening this weekend The Boxtrolls was only able to scrape together $3.6M for a Worldwide Cume of $72.8M.

The picture ranks as Laika's lowest grossing picture, needing a further $30M to catch-up with "Paranorman", this weekend it will debut in France and the weekend after sees it bow in Germany. But needing a further $70M to double its budget thinks don't look great for the film

Lucy picked up a further $3.2M this weekend bringing its Cume to $412.3M. Largest weekend was $1.1M from Italy where the film has grossed $8M after 3 weekends.

"Lucy" ranks as the year's 12th highest grossing picture and that looks like where it'll stay as "Lego" holds the 11th spot with $468M for Johansson it ranks as her 4th highest grossing picture (where it has been for some-time having overtaken the $186M of "Horse Whisperer" some months ago) and her highest grossing Non-Marvel picture.

Alexander began its Offshore campaign taking $2.8M from 14 Offshore Markets, Mexico producing $1.8M, Russia $800K and Argentina $300K. This week the picture opens in Brazil, the UK gets it the last weekend of October while Germany and France will just have to wait for January

Predicted Weekend

Quite an interesting weekend in-store this week with battles throughout the top 10

Brad Pitt's Fury should take to spot and predictions seem to range from $25M to $30M. Costing $68M, the picture is expected to perform very similarly to "Capt Phillips" which opened same weekend last year and bowed to $25M. Another comparison would be "Monuments Men" which opened in February this year to $22M and tracking says that it's performing very similar to the Clooney Pic. Reviews haven't been too great and that too may dampen Box Office

Gone Girl dropped just 29.6% last weekend and a similar hold is anticipated this weekend which should put it in 2nd spot. Thoough Del Toro's Book of Life will be vying for that 2nd spot with tracking suggesting it will be aiming for the high teens this weekend. Costing $50M, the pic, based on the Mexican Holiday "Day of the Dead" is expected to do well with Hispanics but Facebook and Twitter activity have been poor

Battling it out for centre ground will be Dracula Unbound, Alexander and the Very Bad Day plus new entry Best of Me is a $25M adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel. Last pic "Safe Haven" bowed at $21M, the movie prior to that, "The Lucky One" opened to $22M. But for some reason analysts are eschewing those opening for the mid to low teens, similar to "Rodanthe"'s $13M and "Walk to Remember"'s $12M.

There will be an interesting battle for the lower reaches of the chart, expected to do $9M and $8M respectively, Annabelle and The Judge should be safe. Denzil Washington's The Equalizer is expected to around $5M, The Maze Runner $4.5M. Which would mean Boxtrolls with $4M and Addicted with $3.9M will find no room at the inn. Also Men, Women and Children is expected to expand so that too many put it in contention

Code:
1.  “Fury”          Predicted Weekend  $26.0M
2.  “Gone Girl”                        $20.0M
3.  “Book of Life”                     $18.0M
4.  “Best of Me”                       $13.0M
5.  “Dracula Untold”                   $11.0M
6.  “Alexander & the Very Bad Day”     $10.5M
7.  “Annabelle”                         $9.0M
8.  “The Judge”                         $8.0M
9.  “The Equalizer”                     $5.0M
10. “The Maze Runner”                   $4.5M

Guardians of the Galaxy

Midweek Worldwide figures now see "Guardians" stand at $705.1M which means it has now overtake "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" to become the year's 6th highest grossing picture, on the tails of "Amazing Spider-Man 2"'s $709M Worldwide Gross

One the plus side for "Dawn", it may now be relegated to the 7th highest grossing film of the year, it too has also passed the $700M mark to now stand at $700.4M

US Weekend

Based on the 1st few showings of the day Book of Life is looking at $4M-$5M. This is unsurprising as, like "Alexander" last weekend, family films tend to perform better on Saturdays than they do on Fridays

Last weekend Alexander took $5.3M (28.8% of the weekend), on Saturday it took $8.0M (43%). Sunday it took a further $5.1M to give it a $18.36M weekend.

Thus it would seem that if "Book of Life" performs in the same way as Alexander and Friday represents 28% of the weekend then "Life" would be looking at a $14M-$15M weekend,

Fury with its 'R' rating means that the majority of the audience won't be in until the evening showings. Currently it's looking at a $8M-$9M Friday, Friday is expected to represent about 29% of the weekend. So the film is currently looking to weekend below $25M but at the moment it's too early to really say anything

Nicholas Sparks adaptation, Best of Me is looking at $3.4M - $4M. With Nicholas Sparks pictures, Friday tends to represent about 28% of the overall weekend. The lower end of the prediction would this see "Best of Me" not even clearing the $10M mark

US Weekend

There appear to be no surprises in store for this weekend. "Fury" opene
d to $8.8M and looks to be on target for $25M. This is almost identical to "Capt. Philips" which in the same weekend last year bowed to $8.5M on the Friday and weekended with $25.7M. It went on to close with $107M

"Gone Girl" will lose pole-position this weekend but in return looks set to cross the $100M mark, ending the weekend with $107M

"Book of Life" took just $4.9M on Friday but it's expected to perform strongly Saturday Night. Last Weekend "Alexander" took $5.3M on the Friday and closed the weekend with $18.4M. Similarly "Boxtrolls" (looks like they're out of the 10 this weekend) started its debut weekend with $4.9M and took $17.27M over the 3-day

"Best of Me" opened with $4.1M, last Nicholas Sparks picture "Safe Haven" debuted on a Thursday to $8.8M and on the Friday took $7.7M. But that was a Valentines Day and one must question the wisdom in release this picture in the middle of October, especially when "Gone Girl" is running rampant. "Best of Me" is expected to take $11.5M over the weekend

Code:
1.  “Fury”     Friday  $8.8M  Predicted W’kend $25.0M
2.  “Gone Girl”        $5.5M                   $18.0M
3.  “Book of Life”     $4.9M                   $17.3M
4.  “The Best of Me”   $4.1M                   $11.5M
5.  “Alexander”        $3.2M                   $12.9M
6.  “Dracula Untold”   $2.9M                    $9.3M
7.  “Annabelle”        $2.5M                    $7.6M
8.  “The Judge”        $2.4M                    $7.7M
9.  “The Equalizer”    $1.6M                    $5.5M
10. “The Maze Runner”  $1.3M                    $4.4M

US Weekend

A $23.5M weekend was more than ample to give Brad Pitt's Fury top spot this weekend, though it did edge on the low side of expectations. It gives Director David Ayer his best debut by a comfortable margin beating the $13.1M opening weekend of 2012's "End of Watch". Though as writer he's had better namely the $40M form 2001's "Fast and Furious" and the $37M of 2003's "S.W.A.T."

For Pitt the picture ranks as his 11th best bow, trailing the $26.8M of "Benjamin Button" (though that was the tail end of a 5-day Xmas weekend.

Demographics, as expected with War film, the picture skewed heavily Male (60%). 51% of the audience were aged 35 or older. Exit scores was positive with around 9.1/10.

When the picture was looking like it would weekend with $25M, there was a lot of comparisons to "Capt Philips" which opened this time last year, that pic bowed to $25.7M and closed with $107M. It seems that "Fear" is closer to "Monuments Men" with a bow of $22M and a close of $78M. Now it seems likely that "Fear" won't cross the $100M mark but will most likely close in the mid-80s to low-90s.

Dropping 32.6% this weekend, Gone Girl raked in a further $17.8M pushing the picture across the $100M mark, the last pictures to do that were "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and "Lucy" both of whom stepped over the milestone on the weekend of Aug 15/17.

This weekend the picture outgrossed the $102M of "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" and now ranks as Fincher's 2nd highest grossing picture with just "Benjamin Button"'s $127M ahead.Last weekend "Gone Girl" generated $37M over the entire week thus it looks set to shortly become Fincher's highest grossing pic and a quick pen and paper calculation would suggest the picture will close at around $150M

For Ben Affleck, the pic has overtaken the $102M of 2003's "Daredevil" and now is chasing the $118M of "Sum of All Fears" and the $136M of Argo and the $138M of "Good Will Hunting".

Coming in narrowly behind is Del Toro's Book of Life, the picture took $4.9M on Friday and then $6.8M Saturday, a jump of 38%. Unfortunately for the picture it's looking very similar to "Boxtrools" which this weekend dropped out of the 10 with a take of $2.6M pushing its Cume to $46. "Boxtrolls" opened to $4.9M and took $7.4M so the performance does seem very similar.

"Book of Life"'s audience was 57% Female, 54% of the audience were under the age of 25. Surprisingly only 30% of the audience were Hispanic, it was anticipated that the figure would be higher with the film's background being "Day of the Dead". Exit scores were positive 8.7/10, but then so were "Boxtrolls"

"Alexander and the Bad Day" dropped 34% this weekend taking $12M which now gives it a Cume of $36.9M. After 10-days "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" had grossed $35.9M so they do seem to be tracking similarly, that picture went on to gross $64M so a similar figure should be on the cards.

Nicholas Sparks' "The Best of Me" flopped with a bow of just $10.2M. As far as Sparks adaptations goes it's the poorest opening, pushing the $12M of 2002's "Walk to Remember" into penultimate place. Biggest problem for the pic seems to be its opening date, Generally Sparks pics get released around Valentine's Day, interesting that fellow lowest opening pic "Walk to Remember" opened in January.

70% of audience were Women, but also young with 56% of the audience were under 25. They don't seem to have liked it very much scoring it just 7.4/10.

Universals joy of Dracula Untold $23M bow last weekend took quite a hit as it dropped 65% from its opening on Friday, recovered a little over the weekend to take $9.9M representing a fall of 57.9%. "Untold" looks like it won't match its $70M budget as it looks like it'll close with around $60M

In the genre of Vampire pictures, "Untold" has now outgrossed the $37M of "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and is closing in on the $45M of "Underworld:Rise of the Lycans". "Evolution" grossed $62M in 2006 and after 10-days had taken $44M.

It was hoped that the more mature audience tends to stay away from debut weekends and tend to find the picture in subsequent weekends, well that was the hope when last weekend The Judge underperformed with a debut of $13M. This this weekend's take of $7.9M, a drop of 39.5% must be a 2nd blow as it seems that people just aren't that interested in the film

Grossing $26.8M, the picture looks like it's going to close at $40M

Almost on equal footing Annabelle also took $7.9M giving it a gross of $74.1M. As Supernatural Movies go, it ranks 18th on a par with "The Exorcism of Emily Rose", chasing the (unadjusted)$76M of '92's "Poltergeist". In the genre of possessed toys "Annabelle" is the clear leader with '88's $33M for 2008's "Child's Play" in a distant 2nd place, Though adjusted "Child's Play" is around $65M,

Denzil Washington's "The Equalizer" took $5.4M this weekend bringing its Cume to $89.2M which now makes it the 8th highest grossing pic of his career having overtaken the $87M of 2006'a "Inside Man" and is now after the $91M of "Crimson Tide". For Moretz, the picture ranks as the highest grossing film of her career having overtaken the $74M of "Dark Shadows"

Finally bringing up the rear is Maze Runner which has now grossed $90.8M, almost 3x its budget in just the US

Code:
                                       Th’res Average  Gross   Budget
1.  “Fury”              $23.5M         3,173  $7,406   $23.5M  $68M
2.  “Gone Girl”         $17.8M  -32.6% 3,249  $5,479  $107.1M  $61M
3.  “The Book of Life”  $17.0M         3,071  $5,537   $17.0M  $50M

Overseas Weekend

A 2nd weekend worth $22.3M helped push Guardians of the Galaxy back to the top spot this weekend with an Offshore take of $23.1M

After just two sessions the picture has grossed $69M making China the picture's top market, pushing the UK to #2 slot with $47.3M, Russia with $37.6M, Australia $24.5M, Germany $24.2M and France $21.8M

Offshore the picture has now grossed more than $400M ($404.8M) making it the 8th highest grossing picture overseas. Worldwide it's gross of $732.6M sees it surge pass both "Amazing Spider-Man 2"'s $709M and "Winter Soldier"'s $714M to rank as the year's 4th highest grossing picture, trailing the $746M of "Days of Future Past" and the $757M of "Maleficient". Even then it will still be a distant 2nd (Rich Edwards take note) to "Age of Extinction"'s $1,080M.

For Marvel comics overall, the pic now ranks as their 8th highest grossing picture of all-time with slot #7 occupied by "Days of Future Past" and #6 by "The Amazing Spider-Man" with $757M

"Guardians" only narrowly beat Dracula Unbound which this weekend takes the #2 spot with $22.5M widening by 14 further markets for a total of 55 Offshore Markets. Though it seems that Russia was the top market this week where a 2nd weekend picked up $4.4M for a Cume of $16.7M

"Dracula" has now grossed a Worldwide $136M meaning that it's close to its 2xbudget mark but with a negative cost of around $150M Universal will need at least another $70M to start making money. The pic debuts in Brazil and Spain this week,

Gone Girl earned a further $20.2M this weekend, a 3rd weekend in the UK took a further $3.9M giving it #2 place and a local cume of $23.2M, the picture's largest offshore territory. Australia produced $2.8M for a cume of $14.8M after two weekends.

Worldwide "Gone Girl" has now grossed $201.8M, the 28th highest grossing film of the year, just trailing the $203M of "Need for Speed" and the $204M of "The Expendables 3".

For Fincher, the picture ranks as his 5th highest grossing film, having exceeded the $196M Worldwide take of 2002's "Panic Room" and is chasing the $224M of "Social Network".

For Affleck the picture ranks as his 6th highest grossing film, trailing the $225M of "Good Will Hunting" and the $232M if "Argo".

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles finally arrives in W Europe this weekend with a $20M weekend, $7.1M of which was sourced from the UK where the picture debuted at #1. France opened at $4.1M, Germany $3.8M

Worldwide "Turtles" has now grossed $375M ranking it as the year's 13th highest grossing picture, chasing "Lucy"'s $415M.

With tales of French Teenagers mobbing cinemas it's no surprise to see "Annabelle" pick up $19.2M this weekend, a second weekend in France produced $3.2M for a Cume of $7M, double the "Conjuring"'s close of $3.5M in the market. Brazil produced $2.8M for $7.9M hugely over "Conjuring"'s close of $2.9M. The UK produced $2.4M for $7M exceeding "Conjuring"'s $4.9M

Offshore "Annabelle" has now earned $92M, (still only half of "Conjuring"'s Offshore $180M) and Worldwide it has grossed $166M to "Conjuring"'s Worldwide $318M.

Maze Runner picked up $17.1M this weekend. opening in France to $4.9M which gave it top spot. A second weekend in the UK delivered $2.1M for a Cume of $7.1M.

With China yet to bow, "Maze Runner" has so far grossed $252M ranking it as the year's 23rd highest grossing picture, just ahead of "Robocop"'s $242M and trailing the $268M of "Neighbors"

Interestingly, Offshore "Maze Runner"'s $161M outgrosses "Divergent"'s $137M. Looking at the Worldwide shares, Offshore represents 63% of "Maze Runner"'s gross to just 47% of "Divergent".

Break Up Buddies has now grossed $165M making it China's 3rd highest grossing picture of the year, just $2M behind "The Monkey King". "Age of Extinction" ranks as the year's top picture with $301M

Book of Life opened in 19 Offshore Markets, Mexico producing $3.8M and $2M from Brazil. The picture opens in the UK and France this weekend.

Denzil Washington's The Equalizer debuting in Spain to $1.2M, though Germany was the weekend's top market earning $1.6M for a Cume of $4.7M. The UK stands as the picture's highest grossing market where it has so-far earned $10M

The pic now stands as Washington's 9th highest grossing film, having overtaken the $157M of "Crimson Tide" and is now looking at "Flight"'s $161M

The Judge took $6.5M, $1.5M of which was produced by a debut in Russia giving it the #2 slot in the market.

Boxtrolls took $3.1M, strangely it debuted to just $630K in France no indication of the # of theatres or if it was just local to Paris. The UK has produced $12M. Worldwide it has grossed a not great $82M. This week it opens in German speaking Europe which looks to be the last major market for it it looks doomed to be Laika's lowest grossing movie as "Paranorman"'s $107M looks to be out of reach

Predicted Weekend

Quite a wide variety of predictions this weekend. Most believe that Ouija, based upon the Hasbro Ouija board, will come out on top. BoxOffice are predicting $28M but most others are saying $18M - $20M is a bit more likely. This picture is a PG13 and Universal have largely targeted at teenage girls so it probably won't be too attractive to the core horror fans (The demographics of the last few pictures indicate is skewed Female anyway).

"Fury" and "Gone Girl" are expected to take the low to mid-teens

Keanu Reeves may retain name recognition but of-late it hasn't equated to pulling-power. His last pic "47 Ronin" bowed at just $9M and closed at $38M ($150M World Wide) despite costing Universal $175M to produce and he hasn't been in a +$50M film since 2008's "Day the Earth Stood Still". This weekend he releases John Wick and once again predictions seem to be quite varied varying from $17M to just $10M

St. Vincent stars Bill Murray, Naomi Watts and Melissa McCarthy and has been playing speciality theatres for the last couple of weeks and has so-far raised $969K. This weekend is goes Wide (+2,200 theatres). Unfortunately it seems to be just as McCarthy's act seems to be wearing thin with cinema goers. Her last pic, "Tammy", bowed at $21M, 47% down on her previous picture "The Heat". Currently the film is looking at taking $5M this weekend


Code:
1.  “Ouija”         Predicted   $19.0M
2.  “Fury”                      $14.0M
3.  “John Wick”                 $13.5M
3.  “Gone Girl”                 $12.0M
5.  “Book of Life”              $10.0M
6.  “Alexander”                  $7.0M
7.  “St. Cloud”                  $5.5M
8.  “The Judge”                  $5.0M
9.  “Dracula Untold”             $4.5M
10. “The Best of Me”             $4.0M

Predicted Weekend

Ouija opened Thursday Evening took $911K and early matinee performances are suggesting it will take $7M Friday which would indicate a weekend of around $19M-$20M giving it the weekend's #1 spot.

John Wick seems to be doing a bit better than expected, started the ball rolling Thursday with $870K it's now looking like it will take $5M-$6M Friday and that would give it a weekend of about $14M-$15M considerably better than the $10M some analysts were calling for

Predicted Weekend

Looking to be a bit of a slow weekend, and nothing majorly surprising appears to be happening except that "John Wick" is performing towards the top of expectations.

"Ouija" bowed to $8.3M Friday Night, nowhere as good as "Annabelle"'s $15.4M Friday bow, but better than "Carrie"'s $6.3M Friday bow last year and "Sinister"'s $7.4M bow in 2012. The picture is looking like it will do around $20M over the weekend. But the exit scores are bad, something like 4/10.

"John Wick" did well taking $5.4M on Friday which should see it take around $14M over the weekend

If there any surprises then it's Bill Murray/Melissa McCarthy's "St. Cloud", originally expected to take $5M-$6M over the 3-day, it took $2.5M on Friday and now is targeting a weekend worth $8.2M

Code:
1.  “Ouija”      Friday   $8.3M  Predicted W’kend $20.0M
2.  “John Wick”           $5.4M                   $14.0M
3.  “Fury”                $4.1M                   $13.5M
4.  “Gone Girl”           $3.4M                   $11.0M
5.  “St. Vincent”         $2.5M                    $8.2M
6.  “Book of Life”        $2.4M                    $9.2M
7.  “Alexander”           $2.0M                    $7.1M
8.  “The Best of Me”      $1.6M                    $4.8M
9.  “The Judge”           $1.3M                    $4.2M
10. “Dracula Untold”      $1.3M                    $4.2M

US Weekend

Universal/Hasbro's Ouija takes the top spot this weekend picking up $20M over the 3-day, earning $8.3M on Friday representing a heavily front-loaded 42% of the total. Armed with a horrible 4/10 exit score expect this picture to drop heavily next weekend. But coming with a budget of just $5M, even if the film drops 70% next weekend Universal will make money from this picture.

Armed with a Teen-pleasing PG13, gave the picture a leg-up on its horror competition opening better than "Carrie"'s $16M (close $35M) and "Sinister"'s $18M (close $48M) though both those pics came with 'R' ratings

As expected demographics skewed young with 75% of the audience being under 25, 61% of the audience were Female.

Following "47 Ronin"'s failure (cost $175M, closed with $38M in the US $150M Worldwide), Keanu Reeves badly needed a hit and he looks like he's got it with John Wick bowing at $14.1M, it ranks as his best bow since the $30M debut of 2008's debut of "Day the Earth Stood Still" and ranking as his 9th best bow, just slightly less than "Speed"'s $14.45M '95 debut.

LGF haven't released budget figures but hopefully they've paid heed of recent action pics Washington's "Equalizer" cost $55M, "Lucy" $40M, Costner's "3-Days to Kill" $28M so somewhere up there would be expected.

On Friday the film took $5.5M which represents a slightly front-loaded 39% of the weekend but exit scores were largely positive gaining an 8/10 that kind of score would suggest a multiplier of around 2.5 so the film should close around $35M-$40M.

Males made up the majority of the audience, 60%, but it seems unlikely that it was the boyfriends of the girls going to see "Ouija" as 60% of the audience were over the age of 25.

Brad Pitt's Fury dropped 45% in its 2nd weekend, earning a further $13M which gives it a 10-day Cume of $48M.

Last weekend it was thought that "Fury" would perform similarly to "Capt Philips" which bowed at $25M and went onto to Cume $107M in N. America. But "Fury" opened to $46M and it was thought it would perform similarly to "Monuments Men" which started with $22M and closed at $78M

In its 2nd weekend "Captain Philips" dropped 36% and posted a 10-day Cume of $52.4M. "Monuments Men" dropped just 29% in its 2nd weekend but had accumulated $44M after 10-days. So "Fury" does appear to even be a bit weaker than "Monuments Men". So probably not quite as strong as was hoped. The 10-day of "Monumnets Men" turned out to be 56% of the eventual gross, thus "Fury" looks as if it will close around $80M down from the anticipated $90M last weekend.

"Fury" currently ranks as Pitt's 21st highest grossing picture, having overtaken the $44.6M of '98's "Sleepers" and is now trailing the $53M of '96's "Sleepers" and the $56M of "12 Years a Slave"

Earning a further $11.1M, Gone Girl dropped 36% this weekend, its heaviest decline so-far and now totals $124.1M which makes the picture just $3M shy of overtaking "Benjamin Button" to rank as Fincher's highest grossing picture. For Affleck the picture ranks as 5th highest grossing picture, trailing the $136M of "argo" for Pike the picture now ranks as her 2nd highest grossing film, trailing the $160M of "Die Another Day"

"Gone Girl" earned $23M in its last week and is dropping at about 37% per week, this would suggest that it has about another $2M left in it which would put its closing at around $140M-$150M

Book of Life added a further $9.8M this weekend, representing a drop of 42.4%, after 10-days it has grossed $29.9M.

Last weekend I was comparing it to the opening of "Boxtrolls" which opened to $17.2M compared to "Life"'s $8.3M, but in its 2nd weekend "Boxtrolls" dropped just 30% and had accumulated $32M after 10-days. "Boxtrolls" went on to close with $47M. It seems that "Book of Life" will close in the low 40's.

"St. Vincent" went wide this weekend and took $8M a bit higher than the mid-week predictions (partly due to it adding more theatres than announced), but what should be pleasing TWC is the 9/10 exit scores indicating the picture should develop some quite long legs.

On Friday the picture took $2.5M which represents 31% of the weekend so there's no front-loading involved. There appears to be no demographics available

Disney's Alexander earned itself a further $7M this weekend, after 3 weekends the picture has now grossed $45.5M.

After 3 weekend "Diary of a Wimpy Kid:Roderick Rules" had grossed $45M, that went on to close with $52M that would seem about right for "Alexander" too.

Nicholas Sparks adaptation The Best of Me took $4.7M this weekend, a but better than predicted it has so-far grossed $17.1M.

As the poorest opening Nicholas Sparks adaptation the picture was already on to a bad start and still ranks as the lowest grossing picture with a huge gap between it and the $47M of "A Walk To Remember" which at a bow of $12M was the prior holder of lowest debut for a Sparks Adaptation. After 10-days "Walk" had grossed $23M so it doesn't appear to be in any danger of regaining the title of lowest grossing Sparks picture. That all looks to belong to "Best of Me"

"Walk" had grossed 56% of its eventual total after 10-days, thus is would seem likely that "Best of Me" will close at around $30M.

Team Downey's The Judge picked up a further $4.3M this weekend the picture has grossed just $34M and will no-doubt close at less than $40M

If there's any glimmer of optimism for Downey then the picture has at-least surpassed the $31.7M of "The Soloist", Downey's previous non-Marvel pic. It ranks as his 15th highest grossing picture, trailing the $36M of "Soapdish" a picture he made in '91 and whose adjusted figure is worth around $70M in 2014.

Finally, after dropping 57% last weekend, Dracula Untold might have been hoping for some bottoming out of the drop, but it was not to be falling a further 56.9% this weekend with a take of $4.3M the picture has grossed just $48.3M and should just creep over the $50M mark before it closes

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has now grossed $190M, $1.1M shy of "22 Jump Street", at its current rate of progress it will probably overtake "Jump Street" in the next couple of weeks. "22 Jump Street" currently holds the slot as the 10th highest grossing picture of the year. So will "TMNT" take the 10th slot of will "Interstellar" (Nov 5th) & "Big Hero 6" (Nov 6th) just pip it of that slot :smallsmile:

Dominating the weekend was Mexico where the picture debuted to $11.2M, the best ever opening for a horror film in the market. The film did well across a flood of openings in Latin and S. America this weekend, picking up $1.2M in Argentina (46% of the weekend market) while $1.3M in Peru provided WB with their 2nd best debut in the market.

In Brazil a 2nd weekend took a further $2.2M providing a Cume of $11.5M beating the "Conjuring"'s gross of $7.8M in the market. A similar story in France the picture has grossed $10M to the Conjuring's $9.9M. Though in the UK the pic has taken $9.6M to the Conjuring's $16M and S. Korea $6.6M to $15M

For Affleck it ranks as his 4th, trailing the $289M of "Shakespeare In Love" then there's quite a jump to the $449M of "Pearl Harbor".

Dracula Untold took in $14.7M this weekend, debuting in Brazil to #1 with $2.7M Worldwide the picture has grossed $166M.

The Maze Runner added a further $12.6M this week with France providing the best weekend where the picture's 2nd weekend brought in $5.3M for a Cume of $12.7M and retained the #1 spot. Elsewhere the picture has now grossed $9.4M in the UK after 3 and a 2nd weekend in Germany sees the picture to have accumulated $4M

Fury opened in 15 Offshore Markets taking $11.2M, the UK providing the best take with $4.2M, Australia produced $2.2M and France chipped in $2.1M. This week the picture opens in Russia, then Italy, S. Korea at the end of November but Germany & S. American don't get the picture until January.

Hercules opened in China and Japan this weekend to $10.9, but China provided the bulk of the take with $9.6M. This brings the picture to $238.2M it was enough to help the picture overtake "Non-Stop"'s $222M to rank as the year's 25th highest grossing picture.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles grossed more than $200M Offshore this weekend thanks to a further $10.8M.

A second weekend in France produced $3.3M for $9.4M, The UK $3M for $12.6M after 2. In Germany the picture picked up $2.1M which gave it the #1 spot and a 2nd weekend Cume of $6.6M

China produced a further $6.5M this weekend for a Cume of $84.4M which helped Guardians of the Galaxy to $10.3M. The picture finally ends its tour in Italy this week

"Guardians" has amassed a Global $752M. This week it overtake "Days of Future Past"'s $746M to now rank as the year's 3rd highest grossing picture, trailing "Malificent"'s $757M. Overtaking "Days of Future Past" also means that it now ranks as Marvel's 7th highest grossing picture trailing the $757M of "Amazing Spider-Man" so next weekend the picture should both be the 2nd highest grossing picture of the year and Marvel's 6th highest grossing picture.

Book of Life took $7.8M this weekend, debuting in the UK to $1.4M giving it 4th place, In France it barely crept into the charts with $1.1M giving it #10 spot. A second weekend in Mexico earned the film $2.5M where the film has now grossed $6.9M

Robert Downey Jr's The Judge took $6.9M, nothing particularly spectacular with the best debut weekend coming from Italy where the pic debuted to $1.1M. Mexico $828K and France it barely mustered $491K. Of the Holdovers Russia produced $1.1M for $3.3M after 2.

Denzil Washington's The Equalizer grabbed $5.7M debuting in Japan to $735K the picture has taken $77.7M Offshore, $10M of which comes from the UK and $5M from Russia, $4M from German and Greece each.
