Sorry, Hollywood: The Highest Grossing Movie Of 2021 Is A Chinese Film

The global box office champion for 2021 has been crowned and, while things could change between now and December 31, it seems unlikely any movie released between now and then has a shot at overtaking "The Battle at Lake Changjin." Yes, a movie most people in North America, save for those who obsess over box office numbers such as myself, have probably never heard of is, by a pretty wide margin, the highest-grossing movie of the year.According to Box Office Mojo, the Chinese propaganda flick has ...

A Chinese Film Beat No Time To Die And Venom 2 At The Box Office

There was much talk last weekend about the box office -- and for good reason. "Venom: Let There Be Carnage" set records with its $90 million domestic opening, and "No Time to Die" made nearly $120 million in its international rollout. But, amazingly, those weren't the highest-grossing movies worldwide last weekend. And what's even more surprising is it's not even sort of close. Rather, a Chinese propaganda film titled "The Battle at Lake Changjin" absolutely obliterated the competition, which co...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2: The Magic of Great Characters

On July 15, 2011, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 released in theaters to a very magical (and, honestly, quite astounding) reaction from fans and critics alike. The film went on to become the highest earning Potter film with $381 million in the United States and $1.342 billion worldwide (though it sold 12 million fewer tickets domestically than Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, according to Box Office Mojo), and earned a stunning 96% on Rotten Tomatoes, the highest score of the...

‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Box Office Strong Enough to Help Movie Theater Stocks, But Theaters Aren’t Out of the Woods Yet

Wonder Woman 1984 hit HBO Max on Christmas Day, but it also opened in theaters. This means for the first time in a while we have some box office numbers for a big studio movie, and guess what? Those numbers aren’t too shabby! To be clear, Wonder Woman 1984‘s opening weekend box office haul would be a disappointment in a normal year, but this isn’t a normal year. At the moment, Wonder Woman 1984 is looking at a $17 million domestic opening – good enough to bolster movie theater stocks. But there...

‘The Croods 2’ Earns the Biggest Box Office Opening Since the Pandemic, But It’s Nothing to Brag About

Considering how many people decided it was okay to fly across the country for Thanksgiving in the middle of a pandemic, it should come as no surprise that some people were also willing to risk their lives to see what an animated caveman family has been up to after seven years. The Croods 2: A New Age opened in theaters for the holiday weekend, and while it had no problem taking the top spot at the box office and surpassing Tenet for the biggest box office opening since the coronavirus pandemic ...

DMG Founder Says Vin Diesel Will Be Back For Bloodshot 2

DMG Founder Says Vin Diesel Will Be Back For Bloodshot 2 Sony kicked off the blockbuster season a little early this year with Bloodshot, an adaptation of the Valiant Comics superhero. Unfortunately, the film opened just as the coronavirus made its way to the U.S. and prompted movie theaters to close. That put a nasty dent in its box office intake. But according to the CEO of Valiant’s parent company, DMG, this isn’t keeping the movie from getting a sequel. According to Dan Mintz, Vin Diesel i...

‘The War with Grandpa’ Dethrones ‘Tenet’ in the Continually Depressing Weekend Box Office

As if 2020 wasn’t already weird enough, the family comedy The War with Grandpa, starring Robert De Niro and directed by Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties filmmaker Tim Hill, has dethroned Christopher Nolan‘s sci-fi action blockbuster Tenet from the top spot on the box office charts. All it took was $3.6 million to knock Tenet out of the number one spot, which it held for six weekends in a row. But how did the rest of the weekend fare? Did any other movies from the past return to the charts? Find ...

The box-office expectations for 'Birds of Prey' were too high and the movie could still be a win for DC and Warner Bros.

"Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)" opened below studio and analyst expectations over the weekend with $33 million. But the movie has made $81 million globally and had a production budget of $84.5 million. "Birds of Prey" is rated R and stars a cast of unknown characters (besides Harley Quinn), so expectations should better reflect that. The movie if a spinoff of "Suicide Squad," which has a "rotten" 59% Rotten Tomatoes audience score and could have also held...

‘Birds of Prey’ Dethrones ‘Bad Boys for Life’ to Top the Box Office, But Opens Below Projections

Bad Boys for Life has been dominating the box office since arriving in theaters in the middle of January, but the ladies of Birds of Prey took Will Smith and Martin Lawrence down a peg with some DC Comics action. However, even though the movie starring Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn ended up Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with an 81% critical score, it only ended up with roughly $33.25 million, opening below the projected $45 million that Warner Bros. Pictures was hoping for. Get more on the...

Weekend Box Office: ‘Frozen 2’ is a Huge Hit (Bet You Didn’t See That One Coming!)

Finally: Disney can breathe a sigh of relief knowing they’ve scored a box office win. But seriously, folks: Frozen 2 is a smash hit. The long-awaited sequel to the 2013 animated film debuted over the weekend, and hauled in $350 million globally. That includes a $127 million domestic intake, which some are calling the biggest animated opening ever – but that’s not quite correct.

Box Office: 2019 Is Having The Most Lucrative Autumn In Theaters Ever

It's been an inescapable truth for almost the entire year: 2019 has been disappointing at the U.S. box office. After inflation, the winter season heralded the lowest returns of any year since 1990; spring was abysmal outside Avengers: Endgame and Captain Marvel; and the once-prosperous summer season failed to crack $5 billion for the sixth year in a row. But it's hard to get too disappointed about the fall season—in fact, the past two months have set 2019 on a bit of a correction cours...

Weekend Box Office: No One Can Defeat ‘Joker’, Not Even ‘The Addams Family’ or ‘Gemini Man’ (But Hey, How About That ‘Parasite’!)

The weekend box office returns are in, and once again, Joker reigns supreme. The Todd Phillips movie starring Joaquin Phoenix as a crazy killer clown who loves to dance ended up at the top of the box office for the second week in a row. As far as new releases go, The Addams Family had a strong opening at second place. But Gemini Man, starring Will Smith and Will Smith, had trouble drawing a crowd.

"Avengers: Endgame" has already made over $1 billion at the worldwide box office.

‘The LEGO Movie 2’ Wins Weekend Box Office But Still Disappoints, Liam Neeson’s ‘Cold Pursuit’ Gets Iced

The weekend box office numbers are in, and even though the animated sequel The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part took the top spot, it performed well below expectations. The LEGO Movie 2 was expected to open with at least $50 million last weekend, but it only ended up with a haul of $34.4 million. That’s roughly half of what The LEGO Movie earned in its opening weekend back in 2014. Is this a case of franchise fatigue for the building brick property?
