November 9-11 Box Office Results

Skyfall raked in a majority of the dough this weekend, with $90 million (including Thursday’s earnings)! It so deserved it, too, because it’s just about one of the finest action films of the year, and it is generally one of the best of the year as well! And Lincoln took in an impressive $900, 000 at eleven theatres this weekend. Also, at least surprising to me, Pitch Perfect sneaked into the Top 10 this weekend at #8, but that’s pretty sweet for it!   Well, now to the numbers!

Trouble with the Curve

I’ve been putting these reviews at the bottom of my results article because I’m trying to get a little bit more traffic for them (in case you readers missed the reviews). And I, just now, realized by revealing the scores, it isn’t any good at getting more traffic. Who wants to read a review when they already know the score I gave it? I don’t think I’d do very well working in advertising…

Box Office Results: October 19 – 21

Paranormal Activity 4 took the top spot at the box office this weekend with a disappointing $30.2 million. But, the joke’s on the audience, because they just paid to see the same film for a fourth time. The other new release, Alex Cross, took 11.75 million at the box office. These two films performed poorly for the critical audience. The other new release, The Sessions, was well-acclaimed and earned $121, 000 at four theatres. All 41 films in theatres right now made for a[n] (estimated) weekend grand total of $129, 584, 600.

My Box Office Predictions (Title/My Prediction/Off by (+/-))

(Legends:

I will use the + sign if I estimated too high.

Ex: If I estimated PA4 at $31, 200, 000, I’d put: (+$1,000,000)

I will use the – sign if I estimated too low.

Ex: If I estimated PA4 at $29, 200, 000, I’d put: (-$1,000,000)

Comprendé?) And let me know if I should be doing it the other way, haha. 

1. Paranormal Activity 4/$54, 000, 000/ (+) $23, 800, 000

2. Argo$18, 000, 000/ (+) $1, 375, 000
