The box office results are in and it looks like “Transformers” ain’t going away for a long, long, long, long, LONG time.

Paramount is suggesting that the “film” made $100 million over the 3 day weekend, but BoxOfficeMojo.Com suggests that “the actual number is around $98 million (or lower).” That would put it as the second highest opening weekend for the franchise behind “Revenge Of The Fallen,” ($108 million). Long story short, “Transformers” is here to stay no matter how bad this new movie was and chances are, Paramount’s getting the cash lined up for Michael Bay to return. Continue reading

Box office results are in and Kevin Hart and the gang take the #1 spot in a photo-finish victory against the double punch of last weekend’s sequels.

“Think Like A Man Too” won the box office over the weekend with $29.2 million. This debut is lower than the original’s $33.6 million opening weekend back in 2012 and considerably lower than the $41.5 million opening of “Ride Along” from earlier this year. This is more in line with the debut of “About Last Night” ($25.6 million). Continue reading

Box office results are in and Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are seeming to make for a better duo than Hiccup and Toothless at the box office.

“22 Jump Street” shocked the world by taking the #1 spot over the weekend with a whopping $57.1 million over the weekend. That’s over $20 million more than the debut of “21 Jump Street” two years ago and a little over $10 million under directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s last debut with “The Lego Movie.” This is a gigantic success for the franchise that will only get better from here considering the amazing word of mouth for the film. I myself saw it again over the weekend and loved it even more. Continue reading

Box office results are in and Shailene Woodley adds another huge success to her resume while Tom Cruise takes a disappointing hit.

“The Fault In Our Stars” had a huge opening weekend debut with $48 million. It’s not quite as big as Divergent’s $54.6 million debut, but this is further proof that you should never underestimate a film based on a young adult novel. I still have yet to see the film, but based on what friends of mine have told me, I’m happy for it’s success. I might be seeing it sometime over the weekend due to an overload of screenings this week. Continue reading

Box office results are in for the weekend and turns out that despite being gone for the past several years, Angelina Jolie is still a box office draw.

Disney has another hit on their hands with “Maleficent” making a whopping $69.4 million this weekend at the number 1 spot. Some may look at this and call it a disappointment considering that similar titles, “Alice in Wonderland” and “Oz: The Great and Powerful,” made $116.1 million and $79.1 million respectively, it’s actually the biggest debut of Jolie’s career. It’s hard to tell if the movie will have legs or not considering the mixed critical reception and strong competition from next weekend’s releases, but we’ll see what happens. Continue reading
