WPR Box Office Report: January 13th 2015

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

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 number one spot goes to Taken 3 or, being kidnaped is officially a hobby.  This wasn’t screened for critics so we cant tell you if it is any good.  But we can all use our imaginations.  Last weekend’s new opener was The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death which opened to the number four spot last weekend, and dropped like a corpse to number nine this past weekend.

In other news, the Golden Globe Awards were this past weekend.  There were a few surprises in the winners list, notably Boyhood, and The Grand Budapest Hotel.  While many of the winners proved I was not always the best at predicting how the Hollywood Forign Press would vote, I was not always far off.  I won’t bore you with how close I was, but I will leave it at “very”.  You can see the list of winners here http://www.goldenglobes.com/golden_globe_winners.
