WPR’s Box Office Report: February 9th

First and foremost, news bits: Netflix has released the first Daredevil trailer, which the consensus around the WPR offices is that it looks dark, very gritty, and like it has a lot of potential.  We will be watching with anticipation.  Here is the trailer if you haven’t already watched it a few times. Doctor Who […]

WPR Box Office Report: February 2

There is not much news this past week in the world of movies, unless you count all the news coming out of Sundance, which most are unconfirmed reports of films being sold.  What we do have, is a gigantic list of new trailers.  There are too many to post here, but we did post them […]

WPR Box Office Report: January 20th

This weekend saw an impressive and record setting January weekend for the disappointing American Sniper, with a weekend gross of $107 million.  Followed by the overly kid friendly Paddington still able to pick up $25 million, and The Wedding Ringer was only 1 million behind it.  The rest of the field looks much as it […]

WPR Box Office Report: January 13th 2015

This is the first Box Office Report of 2015, I wanted to get at least a full week in before diving into what is happening in theatres.  The  past two weekends saw only two new openings, with others expending nationwide.  Most notably, Selma, which picked up the number two spot from Into the Woods.  The […]

This week The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies walked away with the top spot at the box office.  In a distant second is Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, and then Annie.  Trailing the pack is Exodus: Gods and Kings which appears to be losing any momentum it had in its […]

This weekend Exodus: Gods and Kings displaced Mockingjay after three consecutive weekends at the top of the list, although the opening numbers for this big budget epic were disappointingly small for the studio.  It seems unusual to say a $24 million opening weekend is small, think of it this way; a film studio depends on […]

It was the smallest weekend of the year for the box office, and as such from last weekend to this, not much changed.  The only new entry in the top ten this weekend was The Pyramid, opening with only $1.3 million.  Horrible Bosses 2 picked up a bit, nudging Bit Hero 6 out of 3rd […]

Box Office Report: October 27

This weekend something interesting happened, and it was not just that Keanu Reeves (John Wick) has a hit movie, and it is not Ouija opening at the top.  It is St. Vincent jumping from an obscure 15 to 6th in it’s third week.  A big part of that is that it only opened in 4 […]
