Box Office Report: October 20

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

Fury opened this weekend slightly under what was expected, falling $1.5 million short of the $25 million goal, I believe that falls into a close enough opening weekend.  Gone Girl slipped to second in its third week, while The Book of Life opened just behind Gone Girl.  The tedious The Best of Me pulled in $10 million just slipping past the mostly entertaining Dracula Untold.  The Judge is still struggling to attract an audience.  While still within the Halloween holiday opening schedule this weeks openers pose no serious threat to the current frontrunners at the box office.  In other news, Guardians of The Galaxy has grossed $732.5 worldwide capturing the number one spot for films opening in 2014 and the third highest grossing film in the Marvel cinematic universe (behind Iron Man 3 and The Avengers).  The rise up the all time worldwide gross chart is less thrilling, but it is currently resting at 61st and climbing as it opens in new countries, but a translation foul up has hurt the film in China.  It remains to be seen if Disney will push to have the translation corrected and re-release the film.

23 Blast

When a high school football star is suddenly stricken with irreversible, total blindness, he must decide whether to live a safe, protected life or to summon the courage through playing football to step back into the world. 23 Blast is based on the inspirational, true story of Travis Freeman, who with the support of his family and community shows us what real faith and courage is.
