Black Panther breaks US box office records

February 19th, 2018

Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther has smashed the US box office with $192 million in its opening weekend.

The Marvel superhero movie had the fifth-biggest opening weekend ever, beaten only by Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Jurassic World and The Avengers.

It’s also the highest-grossing February opening weekend, and ranks among the top 15 global debuts ever.

According to comScore, 37% of moviegoers were African American.

It holds a 97% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and has been a hit in the UK, with day one takings of £2.6 million (about $3.7m) – beating both Thor: Ragnarok and the Benedict Cumberbatch-led Doctor Strange in terms of first-day money.

Meanwhile, Black Panther‘s Michael B Jordan secretly sneaked into public screenings on opening night to find out what real audiences made of his turn as Erik ‘Killmonger’ Stevens.

“Honestly, everybody was laughing, they were yelling at the screen, you know what I’m saying?” he said.

“The gasps, the one-liners, everything was working so it was cool to see it with a normal audience – not at a premiere, not at a press junket.

“They were really engaged and interacting with the film, so it was good to see.”

As well as Jordan, Black Panther stars include Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Andy Serkis, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett and Forest Whitaker.

Black Panther is out in cinemas now.

Fifty Shades Freed takes top spot at US box

February 12th, 2018

Fifty Shades Freed has been given a proper thrashing by critics across the world but despite the fears of some in Hollywood, and even without any full-frontal Jamie Dornan bits, there are movies that are absolutely critic-proof, and the final part of the Fifty Shades trilogy is one of them.

The film has topped the US Box Office this weekend, according to the latest figures from Box Office Mojo.

It racked up $38.8 million over the weekend, putting it at number one and ahead of two other new entires in this week’s chart.

In at number two was the much rnore wholesome Peter Rabbit with $25 million, and at number three was Clint Eastwood’s latest The 15:17 to Paris with $12.6 million.

Then comes last weekend’s number one, reboot Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which grossed $9.8 million

And rounding out the top five was The Greatest Showman with $6.4 million.

The rest of the top ten was filled out with Maze Runner: The Death Cure, Winchester, The Post, The Shape of Water and Den of Thieves.

The commercial success of the Fifty Shades trilogy despite increasing critical disdain for each outing has led to rumours of adaptations of EL James’s spinoff novels.

The author has already published reworkings of Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker, this time from Christian Grey’s viewpoint, rather than Ana Steele, and is presumably working on the final part of the re-angled trilogy.

But with the films presented objectively in the third person, there seems little dramatic justification to adapt the spinoffs.

Jamie Dornan has already said that he’s not interested in playing Christian Grey in any new films they make for that very reason.

Check out the Feb. 9-11 figures below:

1. Fifty Shades Freed — $38.8 million
2. Peter Rabbit — $25 million
3. The 15:17 to Paris — $12.6 million
4. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle — $9.8 million
5. The Greatest Showman — $6.4 million
6. Maze Runner: The Death Cure — $6 million
7. Winchester — $5.1 million
8. The Post — $3.5 million

10. Den of Thieves — $2.9 million

Jumanji knocks The Last Jedi off the top of the US box office

January 7th, 2018

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has knocked Star Wars: The Last Jedi off the top of the US Box Office and perhaps unexpectedly, so has Insidious 4.

After three weeks at the top, Rian Johnson’s Star Wars movie was felled by the Jumanji reboot, which took $36 million in its opening weekend, according to figures from Box Office Mojo.

In second place was the latest installment in the Insidious franchise, which has proved to be a bit of a hit.

Insidious: The Last Key took $29.6 million, meaning that it also beat out The Last Jedi, which took just $23 million this week.

Given that The Last Jedi has already made over a billion dollars at the worldwide box office, we doubt Disney is too concerned.

Fourth place goes to Hugh Jackman’s polarising but no less enjoyable The Greatest Showman ($13.8 millions), and fifth went to Pitch Perfect 3 ($10.2 million).

In at sixth place is John Cena animated vehicle Ferdinand ($7.7 million) and seventh went to Molly’s Game ($7 million).

Winston Churchill biopic Darkest Hour came in eighth place, taking $6.4 million and in at nine is the yet-to-be-released-in-the-UK Pixar animation Coco, which took $5.4 million.

Rounding off the top 10 is Ridley Scott’s much-discussed All the Money in the World, which famously saw Christopher Plummer replace Kevin Spacey after he was removed from the movie.

Check out the Jan. 1-7 figures below:

1. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle — $36 million
2. Insidious: The Last Key — $29.3 million
3. Star Wars: The Last Jedi — $23.6 million
4. The Greatest Showman — $13.8 million
5. Pitch Perfect 3 — $10.2 million
6. Ferdinand — $7.7 million
7. Molly’s Game — $7 million
8. Darkest Hour — $6.4 million
9. Coco — $5.5 million
10. All the Money in the World — $3.6 million

The Last Jedi again tops the US box office

January 1st, 2018

It’s another incredible weekend for Star Wars: The Last Jedi — as it maintains its top spot at the US box office and reaches a huge milestone in ticket sales.

The latest entry in the Star Wars film series has now passed $1 billion in ticket sales internationally and become the year’s biggest domestic box office hit, just three weeks after it debuted in cinemas around the world.

This milestone was reached thanks to The Last Jedi once again winning the US box office for the New Year holiday weekend, pulling in an impressive $52.4 million over the three-day period (via Box Office Mojo).

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now only $15 million behind Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to overtake its spot as the seventh highest-grossing movie in US history.

The Last Jedi maintained its hold over the box office despite some stiff competition from Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which only narrowly missed surpassing Star Wars with a $50.5 million haul.

Finishing in third place this weekend with $17.8 million is musical comedy Pitch Perfect 3, likely adding some more momentum to talk the series continuing with stars Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson.

The highest-charting newcomer of the week was Sir Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World, in at the number-seven slot this week with $5.4 million.

Scott’s J. Paul Getty biopic has been a surprising critical success story of awards season, given that the filmmaker was forced to completely replace Kevin Spacey’s central performance mere weeks before release with new scenes starring Christopher Plummer.

Check out the Dec. 22-24 figures below:

1. Star Wars: The Last Jedi — $68.5 million ($100.7 million four-day)
2. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle — $34 million ($47.5 million four-day)
3. Pitch Perfect 3 — $20.5 million ($27 million four-day)
4. The Greatest Showman — $8.6 million ($13.6 million four-day)
5. Ferdinand — $7.1 million ($9.2 million four-day)
6. Coco — $5.2 million ($7.4 million four-day)
7. Downsizing — $4.6 million ($6.2 million four-day)
8. Darkest Hour — $4.1 million ($5.9 million four-day)
9. Father Figures — $3.2 million ($4.8 million four-day)
10. The Shape of Water — $3.1 million ($4.3 million four-day)

The Last Jedi dominates this weekend’s US box office

December 18th, 2017

Star Wars: The Last Jedi has – unsurprisingly – destroyed all competition at the US box office this weekend.

The much-anticipated sequel, directed by Rian Johnson, has opened to $220 million according to Box Office Mojo, who provide the top ten and their grossing amounts below.

This gives the film the second-best domestic opening ever behind its predecessor, The Force Awakens, which earned $247.966 million.

The Last Jedi stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Andy Serkis, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran and Benicio del Toro.

Following up in second place is another new release in the form of Ferdinand. The animation, which stars wrestler John Cena as a pacifist bull named Ferdinand who refuses to participate in bullfighting, earned $13,325,000 over the weekend.

It also stars Kate McKinnon, David Tennant, Bobby Cannavale and Peyton Manning.

Last week’s number one, Coco, drops to third place having won $10,025,000. The Disney Pixar animation follows a 12-year-old boy named Miguel Rivera (Anthony Gonzalez) who is accidentally transported to the land of the dead.

Wonder, which stars Owen Wilson and Julia Roberts, drops one place to number four after racking up $5,400,000 in earnings.

The drama features The Room‘s Jacob Tremblay as a child with Treacher Collins syndrome trying to fit in.

The top five is rounded out by DC’s Justice League, which previously held second place. The divisive superhero movie, which stars Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Henry Cavill and Ray Fisher, earned $4,170,000 this weekend.

Check out the Dec. 15-17 figures below:

1. Star Wars: The Last Jedi — $220 million
