Highest Feb opening for ‘Fifty Shades’

February 15th, 2015 - Graham Eley

Universal’s ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ grossed an outstanding $30.2m at North America’s Friday box office for the highest ever February opening. Both first night audiences (‘C+’ cinemaScore) and critics (26% on RT) lacked any enthusiasm but it’s unlikely to impact on the film’s momentum. Competition from Valentines Day is more of a concern but the E.L. James’ adaptation should still gross $85m over the four days, comfortably above studio expectations.


The weekend’s other wide opener, ‘Kingsman: Secret Service’, starring Colin Firth, grossed $10.5m in line with market projections. Again critics and audiences were in agreement and a solid 71% critical RT average and a ‘B+’ cinemaScore should push Matthew Vaughn’s adventure comedy to a $40m prednisolone eye drops online

‘American Sniper’ on course for another record

February 1st, 2015 - Graham Eley

All eyes are on Clint Eastwood’s controversial ‘American Sniper’ after it grossed a further $10m at Friday’s North American box office, giving it a realistic shot at heading for the highest ever Super Bowl weekend. Friday’s return was at the low end of market predictions but the Navy SEAL thriller only needs $31.12m+ to beat existing record holder, ‘Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best Of Both Worlds Concert’. Much will depend on Saturday’s uplift with the session being inevitably front-loaded.


Warner Bros expanded the film’s coverage to 3,885 theatres coming into the weekend, a new high for a R-rated title. Tantalisingly, this should be enough for a three day tally in the $31-32m prednisolone online

‘American Sniper’ enjoys another bumper Friday

January 25th, 2015 - Graham Eley

Clint Eastwood’s controversial ‘American Sniper’ continued to grab the headlines with another spectacular Friday at the North American box office. The Navy SEAL biopic exceeded expectations with an outstanding $18.3m haul, putting it on pace for a never before achieved $60m during a film’s second weekend on wide release in January.


It was also a strong Friday for newcomer, ‘The Boy Next Door’, starring Jennifer Lopez, which grossed $5.6m at the top end of market forecasts and the erotic thriller should finish the frame around an impressive $15m. Audiences liked it more than critics with a ‘B-‘ CinemaScore – not bad for the genre – against a putrid critical 13% aggregate rating on RT.


Both of the other weekend wide releases bombed just below the $1.5m mark, leaving ‘Mortdecai’ and ‘Strange Magic’ facing box office oblivion. Although below already low market expectations, it won’t surprise anyone.prednisolone coupon

‘American Sniper’ sets new record with wide release

January 18th, 2015 - Graham Eley

Multiple Oscar nominations and powerful word of mouth since its limited release in the speciality market have propelled Clint Eastwood’s ‘American Sniper’ to a stunning $30.5m Friday after going wide at the North American box office. It’s the highest ever single day January tally in the box office’s history and sets up an astonishing $80m+ haul over the four-day Martin Luther King weekend; making a mockery of market and studio forecasts.


There’s a close battle for second place between two of the weekend’s wide releases. Kevin Hart’s R-rated comedy ‘The Wedding Ringer’ established an early lead on Friday with a solid $6.9m but the Michael Bond adaptation, ‘Paddington’ grossed a higher than predicted $4.6m and has the advantage of family audiences during the remainder of the session. Both films have strong word of mouth – an ‘A-‘ cinemaScore for ‘The Wedding Ringer’ and an even better ‘A’ for ‘Paddington’ – and they should earn $25m apiece over the four days.


The other wide newcomer, ‘Blackhat’, has bombed. Michael Mann’s crime drama could only muster $1.3m on Friday and will barely clear $5m during the session against a $70m production budget. And with audiences awarding it a ‘C-‘ cinemaScore and critics agreeing – 31% on RT – there seems no hope for a recovery.prednisolone dosage by weight

‘Selma’ under-performs after wide expansion

January 11th, 2015 - Graham Eley

Selma’s disastrous week continued when Paramount expanded Ava DuVernay’s civil rights drama from 22 to 2,179 theatres at the North American box office. After missing out at the Producers Guild and BAFTA nominations, it could only muster a poor $3.7m on Friday notwithstanding a rare ‘A+’ CinemaScore and an exceptional 98% current Rotten Tomatoes aggregate critics rating (and 96% with top critics). This will leave it facing a soft $11m weekend, below market and studio expectations.


The other wide weekend release, ‘Taken 3’, starring Liam Neeson, Forest Whitaker and Maggie Grace, fared much better; grossing a stronger than expected opening $14.7m off 3,593 theatres, including $1.6m from Thursday night previews. Audiences enjoyed the final instalment of the franchise much more than critics with a ‘B+’ CinemaScore against a 11% Rotten Tomatoes critics aggregate. The action thriller should finish the three days around $36m.prednisolone dosing

‘The Woman In Black’ sequel enjoys strong Friday

January 4th, 2015 - Graham Eley

Tom Harper’s ‘The Woman In Black 2: Angel Of Death’ exceeded expectations at the North American box office with a strong $7.7m opening Friday from 2,602 theatres (including $1.5m off Thursday previews). Poor reviews – 24% on RT – and a disappointing ‘C’ cinemaScore are unlikely to deter the horror crowd and the film should finish the weekend around $16m, just $4m off the original’s launch. It’s a noteworthy achievement, after factoring in that Relatively picked it up for a bargain basement $1m and Daniel Radcliffe has not returned.


It will not be enough to derail ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ in claiming a third consecutive weekend win. The Middle Earth adaptation grossed a further $8.3m on Friday, putting it on pace for a strong $23m session.


There were also solid holds for ‘Unbroken’ and ‘Into the Woods’ with both earning an additional $17.4m respectively. Expect both films to overtake the ‘The Woman In Black’ sequel during the weekend.prednisolone medication

‘Five Armies’ heading for repeat win

December 28th, 2014 - Graham Eley

‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ is heading for a repeat weekend win at the North American box office after enjoying a strong $15.6m Friday. The Middle Earth saga fell behind wide openers, ‘Unbroken’ and ‘Into the Woods’ on Christmas Day but always seemed to have enough in the tank to win the extended session. It should take around $47m over the four days.


‘Unbroken’ and ‘Into the Woods’ continued to exceed expectations on Friday and grossed a further $12m apiece. With a $2m lead from Christmas Day and an influential ‘A-‘ CinemaScore, ‘Unbroken’ appears to have the upper hand but ‘Into the Woods’ held better on Friday notwithstanding a lesser ‘B+’ from first night audiences. Both films should pass the $40m mark by Sunday night.


And Sony’s political hot potato ‘The Interview’ earned a further $725k from 331 independent theatres in the speciality market, with its modest theatrical performance following the simultaneous online platform release.prednisolone over the counter

‘Five Armies’ on pace for bumper weekend

December 21st, 2014 - Graham Eley

Peter Jackson’s ‘The Hobbit : The Battle Of Five Armies’ grossed another $16.5m at the North American Friday box office, taking its tally to a strong $50.9m after just three days in play.  Audiences liked the Middle Earth finale more than critics with an ‘A- CinemaScore against a 60% RT reviews average and word of mouth should propel it towards $86m over the five day launch.


The weekend’s two other wide openers are in a close battle for second place, which is too close to call. ‘Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb’ earned a below par $5.6m on Friday putting it on pace for a $17.5m weekend, a couple of million off low-end market expectations.  Although the Broadway musical adaptation, ‘Annie’, will take a similar amount after opening on $5.3m, it compares favourably with the market analysts’ $15m predictions for the session.  Audiences slightly preferred Annie – an ‘A- CinemaScore as opposed to a ‘B+’ – but critics disliked it a lot more with a 29% RT rating being 20% behind ‘Museum 3’.prednisolone 15 mg

‘Exodus’ disappoints during opening Friday

December 14th, 2014 - Graham Eley

Ridley Scott’s biblical epic, ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’, starring Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton, grossed a lacklustre $8.6m during its opening Friday at the North American box office, including $1.2m from Thursday previews.  It’s active in a high 3,505 theatres and faces a $25m weekend, around $10m below Fox’s expectations.  A disappointing ‘B- CinemaScore from first night audiences and a critical kicking – 25% on RT (and 35% with TC’s) – will further damage word of mouth during the Christmas period.  And all of this falls against the backdrop of a $140m production budget.


The weekend’s other widish opener, Chris Rock’s ‘Top Five’ grossed a solid $2.4m on Friday from 979 theatres.  Exceptionally strong reviews – 89% on RT (and an astonishing 95% with TC’s) – should propel the ‘R’ rated comedy to around $8m over the three days.


And Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘Inherent Vice’, is making headlines in the speciality box office.  Joaquin Phoenix leads a typically impressive Anderson cast and the crime drama bagged a stunning $128,000 from just five theatres during its debut Friday.

Solid hold for ‘Mockingjay’

December 7th, 2014 - Graham Eley

Lionsgate’s ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1’ grossed a reasonable $6.5m at Friday’s North American box office as it continued to hold well on the back of an ‘A-‘ CinemaScore after a comparatively disappointing opening weekend.  This puts the Y.A. blockbuster on pace for a $23m weekend but the damage is already done with its overall domestic tally of $243m being over $70m less than predecessor, ‘Catching Fire’.


With no new wide releases as distributors steer clear of the traditional Christmas shopping period, ‘Mockingjay’ will easily claim its third consecutive weekend win.  But it was a particularly slow Friday even allowing for seasonal factors with a 15% fall from the corresponding date last year.temovate cost

Box office race is a foregone conclusion

November 30th, 2014 - Graham Eley

The ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1’ is heading for an easy win at the North American Thanksgiving weekend box office after grossing $24m on Friday.  It represents a so-so 55% fall from last week’s opening but doesn’t compare favourably with the $31.5m that its predecessor, ‘Catching Fire’, racked up on the corresponding Friday last year.  The YA blockbuster should finish the five-day session around $82m.


DreamWorks Animation’s ‘Penguins of Madagascar’ finished second on Friday with a slightly disappointing $10.5m during its third day in play.  An ‘A-‘ CinemaScore from first night audiences should draw family audiences on Saturday and Sunday but the animation adventure is still unlikely to finish the long weekend much above $37m.


The session’s other wide opener, ‘Horrible Bosses 2’, made little impression.  The R-rated comedy earned a poor $6.1m on Friday and will struggle to reach $24m over the five days even allowing for its reasonable ‘B+’ CinemaScore.price of zithromax z pak

Mixed messages for ‘Mockingjay’

November 22nd, 2014 - Graham Eley

Lionsgate’s ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1’ made a comparatively slow start on Friday at the North American box office but there is still time to recover.  The Y.A. action adventure grossed $55m from 4,151 theatres (including Thursday night previews), being 17% and 22% below the franchise’s first two instalments respectively and leaving it on pace for a $125m opening weekend, below market expectations.  But, putting things into perspective, it would still be the year’s highest debut.


Critics were less enthusiastic than with the first two but it still aggregated a decent 68% on RT.  More importantly, first night audiences awarded it a powerful ‘A- CinemaScore and, with Thanksgiving weekend pending, word-of-mouth should sustain a healthy run.


The east coast freeze would have kept some at home; particular on Thursday night when it only earned $17m.  Overseas, where there are no such problems, the film has made a flying temovate cream uk

‘Fury’ on pace for a $25m weekend win

October 19th, 2014 - Graham Eley

David Ayer’s R-rated WW2 drama, ‘Fury’, starring Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf, is heading for an easy win at the North American weekend box office after a strong $8.8m opening Friday (inc $1.2m Thursday night takings) from 3155 theatres.  With very good reviews – 80% on RT – and a powerful ‘A- CinemaScore driving word of mouth, the Oscar hopeful should finish the three days on an impressive $25m.


The Guillermo del Toro produced animation adventure, ‘The Book of Life’, also bagged an ‘A- CinemaScore’ after opening in 3,071 theatres.  It grossed a lively $4.9m on Friday (inc $330k from Thursday night), which should translate to an impressive three day $18m after the Hispanic family audiences arrive during the remainder of the weekend.


The other weekend wide opener, ‘Best of Me’, starring Michelle Monaghan and James Marsden, had to settle for a $4.1m Friday (inc $550K Thursday might takings) from 2,936 theatres.  A solid ‘B+’ CinemaScore’ will have more sway with the YA female target audience than the truly atrocious reviews – 7% on RT – and it should reach $11m by Sunday night.  This does not compare favourably with other Nicholas Sparks’ adaptations but it is not unexpected.


And last weekend’s No.1, ‘Gone Girl’, is in a tight race with ‘The Book of Life’ for second place after taking a further $5.5m on Friday.  It will pass the $100m domestic milestone during the session.



UPDATE ‘Fury’ and ‘The Book of Life’ were fractionally off Saturday expectations, giving revised forecasts of $24m and $17.5m respectively.


Fox and New Regency celebrated ‘Gone Girl’ passing the $100m milestone on Saturday night and it looks set to take second place after remaining on course for an $18m weekend.


‘Best of Me’ should still finish the session on $11m after performing in line with expectations on Saturday.azithromycin generic price

‘Dracula Untold’ sets up another close battle

October 12th, 2014 - Graham Eley

Universal’s horror reboot, ‘Dracula Untold’, starring Luke Evans, arrived at the North American box office with an outstanding $8.9m Friday to set up another close contest for the weekend crown.  A powerful ‘A-‘ CinemaScore from the tough marking horror crowd will go some way to mitigating against the usual genre front-loading and it should finish the three days around the $25m mark.  It remains to be seen whether the film can hold off reigning champ, ‘Gone Girl’, which enjoyed a strong $8.2m second Friday and has the advantage of the studio’s target mature audience arriving on Saturday and Sunday.  ‘Gone Girl’ recovered from a Friday deficit last weekend to defeat New Line’s ‘The Conjuring’ spin-off horror, ‘Annabelle’, by a mere $0.4m and the smart money is on a similar outcome this time around.


Disney’s PG-rated adaptation of Judith Viorst’s 1972 bestseller, ‘Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’, slightly exceeded expectations in third place with a solid $5m opening.  With family audiences turning out during the remainder of the weekend and first night audiences also awarding the film an ‘A-‘ CinemaScore, it has a shot at hitting $20m over the three days.


And David Dobkin’s surprise Toronto opener, ‘The Judge’, starring Robert Downey Jr, Robert Duvall and Vera Farmiga, made it a hat trick of newcomers receiving an ‘A-‘ CinemaScore’.  The R-rated legal drama needed a boost after underwhelming critics – reviews running at 47% on RT – and earning a soft $4.4m during Friday but with it being more sensitive to reviews than the other two wide openers, the film is heading for a disappointing $13.5m three day tally.  This would leave it in fifth place below ‘Annabelle’, which is on course for a $15m second weekend hold after adding a further $5.2m on Friday.zithromax z pak price walgreens

‘Gone Girl’ on pace for Fincher record

October 5th, 2014 - Graham Eley

David Fincher’s Oscar hopeful, ‘Gone Girl’, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, opened at the North American box office with a huge $13.2m Friday (inc $1.2m from Thursday previews).  This should translate to a stunning $36m weekend for Fincher’s highest ever debut and a good $13m ahead of Fox’s estimate.  An average ‘B’ CinemaScore will be a slight concern for long term momentum but the strong reviews – currently 87% on RT from a high 200 – are more likely to influence the film’s target mature audience.


New Line’s low budget R-rated horror ‘Annabelle’ did even better on Friday with a bumper $15.5m launch (inc $2.1m from Thursday previews) but it will not be enough to beat ‘Gone Girl’ over the weekend after allowing for the usual genre front loading.  Even so, a ‘B’ CinemaScore from the notoriously hard marking horror crowd – equivalent to an ‘A-‘/’B+’ elsewhere – will drive it towards a $32m weekend, better than any other horror debut this year.


The other weekend wide opener, Freestyle’s bestseller adaptation, ‘Left Behind’, starring Nicolas Cage, proved true to the film’s title in not connecting with its target ‘faith’ audience.  It could only muster a weak $2.3m on Friday, leaving the film facing a disappointing $7m over the weekend.


UPDATE ‘Gone Girl’ and ‘Annabelle’ performed stronger than expected on Saturday and both films are now tracking at $38m for the three days.


Capitalising on the mature audience’s preference for Saturday and Sunday viewing, ‘Gone Girl’ banked a further $15m during its second day in play.


‘Annabelle’ mitigated front loading with strong word of mouth for an outstanding $14m Saturday, a modest fall below 10%.


At last, giving the box office something to celebrate after a difficult summer, it will be the first time in two months that two films have debuted over $30m.zithromax pills for sale

‘The Equaliser’ off to a flyer

September 27th, 2014 - Graham Eley

Sony’s R-rated TV reboot, ‘The Equaliser’, enjoyed a bumper $12.6m opening Friday at the North American box office from 3,236 theatres (inc $1.45m from Thursday night previews).  The action thriller reunites the ‘Training Day’ director/actor collaboration of Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington and could finish as high as $36m after receiving an ‘A-‘ CinemaScore from first night audiences.  This is higher than Sony’s overcautious estimates and the market’s more realistic pre-release tracking, justifying the studio’s earlier decision to make a sequel.  Critics liked it less than punters – currently 59% on RT – but is unlikely to make an impact.


The weekend’s other wide opener, ‘The Boxtrolls’, also exceeded expectations with a solid $4.8m Friday from 3,464 theatres ahead of the family audiences arriving on Saturday and Sunday.  It’s the latest stop-motion animation from Laika after ‘Coraline’ and ‘ParaNorman’ and looks set to take $17m over the three days, around $4m above market forecasts.  A ‘B+’ CinemaScore and solid reviews – 71% on RT – should support a decent run.


Last weekend’s No.1, ‘The Maze Runner’ had a strong $5m Friday hold from a market high 3,638 theatres, putting it on pace for a similar three-day total as ‘The Boxtrolls’.  This would represent a modest 48% week-on-week zithromax overnight shipping

Strong opening for YA sci-fi thriller

September 21st, 2014 - Graham Eley

Fox’s YA sci-fi thriller, ‘The Maze Runner’, starring Dylan O’Brien,  Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Will Poulter, enjoyed a strong opening Friday at the North American box office, grossing $11m from 3,604 theatres.  A powerful ‘A-‘ CinemaScore should off-set genre front-loading and the franchise opener is back on course for hitting the predicted $30m+ weekend after taking a slightly disappointing $1.1m from Thursday night previews.  Average reviews – currently running at 63% on RT – is unlikely to have any bearing.


Universal’s R-rated thriller, ‘A Walk Among the Tombstones’, starring Liam Neeson, arrived in 2,712 theatres with an underwhelming $4.7m (inc $428k Thursday previews).  A disappointing ‘B-‘ CinemaScore will counter decent reviews – 73% on RT – and it should finish the weekend around the $14m mark.


And there was disappointment for the other weekend opener, ‘This is Where I Leave You’,  in third place.  Warner Bros’ siblings comedy took a soft $3.85m on Friday from 2,868 theatres (inc $100k TP’s) leaving it on pace for a $11.5m weekend at the lower end of market expectations.  Audiences liked it more than critics with a ‘B+’ CinemaScore against a 43% RT critical rating.tadapox buy online uk

‘Guardians’ on course for easy repeat win

August 30th, 2014 - Graham Eley

Marvel/Disney ‘s superhero extravaganza, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, is set to retain the top spot at the North American box office after five weekends in play.  It grossed another $3.8m on Friday, which should translate to a solid $19m over the four-day holiday session.


Newcomer, ‘As Above/So Below’, was only $0.6m behind on Friday after a strong digital marketing campaign but also received a push from the usual horror genre front loading.  A miserable ‘C-‘ CinemaScore from the notoriously harsh marking horror crowd and unenthusiastic reviews – currently 30% on RT – will damage word-of-mouth but it is still on pace to hit $11m over the four days, slightly above market expectations.


‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ will overtake it when the families turn out during the remainder of the session.  The adventure reboot earned a further $2.7m on Friday and looks set to finish its fourth weekend around a so-so $14.5m.


R.J. Cutler’s YA tearjerker, ‘If I Stay’ should also steal ahead of the horror flick after a $2.6m second Friday hold.  It looks set to finish just under $12m on Monday night.


The week’s other wide release, Roger Donaldson’s ‘November Man’, continued to disappoint since arriving on Wednesday evening.  The spy thriller took a soft $2.2m on Friday, leaving it facing a $10.5m extended session at the low end of distributor expectations.  Disappointing reviews – 35% on RT – and a decent ‘B+’ CinemaScore have largely cancelled each other out.sildalis online cheap

Close race at the top

August 24th, 2014 - Graham Eley

YA adaptation newcomer and superhero extravaganza go neck and neck during a soft weekend at the North American box office.


R.J. Cutler’s big screen version of Gayle Forman’s bestseller, ‘If I Stay’, starring Chloë Grace Moretz, slowed after a lively start and finished Friday night on a slightly disappointing $6.8m (including $1.1m from Thursday night previews).  This puts it on pace for a $16.5m weekend after factoring in both positive word of mouth from an ‘A- CinemaScore’ and genre front loading.


Disney/Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ was $2m behind on Friday but should perform stronger on Saturday and Sunday for a tight weekend win.  It’s the film’s fourth week in play.


Sony TriStar’s sport drama, ‘When the Game Stands Tall’, opened with a $3m Friday and should gross a solid $10m+ over the weekend ahead of market expectations after receiving an ‘A- CinemaScore’


And the other wide weekend opener, Frank Miller‘s and Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill’, bombed with a truly appalling $2.6m.  The delayed ‘R’-rated sequel – nine years after the original – will struggle to hit $8m over the three days.  The ‘B- CinemaScore’ will not help word of mouth.purchase sildalis online Spain

Besson’s scifi thriller enjoys bumper Friday

July 26th, 2014 - Graham Eley

Luc Besson’s sci-fi thriller, ‘Lucy’, starring Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman, got off to a flyer at the North American box office with an outstanding $17m opening Friday from 3,173 theatres.  A disappointing ‘C+’ CinemaScore from first night audiences will have some impact on word of mouth but its three day tally should still be $3-4m higher than the film’s $40m production budget and $8-9m above market expectations.


It was also a stronger than expected start for Brett Ratner’s $100m ‘Hercules’, which landed in second place with a $11m Friday from 3,595 theatres.  This puts the fantasy adventure on pace for $30m over the weekend, aided by a solid ‘B+’ CinemaScore.  As with many of the summer’s higher budget releases, it will be reliant on the international markets for decent returns.


Critics slightly favoured ‘Hercules’ – 4% higher than ‘Lucy’ on RT at 63% – but the reviews are unlikely to have much effect on the films’ box office performance.


The other wide-ish weekend opener, ‘And So It Goes’, bombed.  Rob Reiner’s romantic comedy, starring Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton, could only muster $1.34m from 1,768 theatres and will finish the weekend around $4m.  Critics hated it – a truly abysmal 15% RT rating – but a ‘B+’ CinemaScore could prevent it totally disappearing without trace.price of propecia at cvs

‘Apes 2’ to retain top spot

July 19th, 2014 - Graham Eley

Fox’s ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ grossed an impressive $10.4m at Friday’s North American box office, slightly ahead of already high expectations.  This puts the reboot sequel on pace for a $35m second weekend hold with its 52% fall – 49% after stripping out the film’s opening Thursday previews – comparing favourably with other summer tentpoles.


‘The Purge: Anarchy’ opened with a strong $12.9m to lead the box office on Friday night but, after factoring in the usual horror genre front loading, it will finish behind ‘Apes 2’ over the weekend when the film should take around $28m.  It received a ‘B’ CinemaScore, which is almost top end for the notoriously hard marking horror crowd.


Disney’s sequel ‘Planes: Fire & Rescue’ came third with a decent $6.3m launch and it could hit the $20m mark for the weekend on the back of family audiences and a powerful ‘A’ CinemaScore.


And the weekend’s other wide opener, Sony’s $40m ‘Sex Tape’, massively disappointed with a poor $5.6m Friday and will struggle to return much more than $15m during the three days after a damaging C+ CinemaScore.  Market analysts had predicted $10m more.


Richard Linklater’s early Oscar hopeful, ‘Boyhood’, which had a spectacular $71,800 per-screen average last weekend for the second-highest limited opening of the year, grossed a further $270k on Friday after expanding from 5 to 34 theatres.  It should finish the weekend just under the $1m mark.generic propecia from canada

‘Transformers 4’ heading for easy win

July 5th, 2014 - Graham Eley

‘Transformers: Age Of Extinction’ will be the first film since ‘Captain America 2’ to retain the No.1 position at the North American weekend box office but there is little by way of competition.


Michael Bay’s latest tentpole grossed a so-so $11m on Friday, increasing its tally to $28.3m since the five-day holiday session got under way on Wednesday.  This should translate to $40m for the Friday-Sunday period being a week on week 56% fall (after stripping out Thursday night previews) and $55m for the full five days.


Warner Bros’ Melissa McCarthy comedy vehicle, ‘Tammy’ has disappointed with a soft $18.05m since its Wednesday launch.  Negative word-of-mouth has taken its toll after lousy reviews – 28% on RT – and a poor audience ‘C+’ CinemaScore and the film is heading for $20m and $31m three and five day totals, being $4m+ below market expectations.


There has been a close battle between the other two weekend wide releases for the third spot.  The $30m horror thriller ‘Deliver Us From Evil’ has edged it so far but Dave Green’s debut feature, ‘Earth To Echo’ is likely to be less front loaded and has an ‘A-’ CinemaScore against its rival’s ‘B-’.  Both films have grossed just under $8m since Wednesday and they should finish around the $10m and $15m marks for the two to buy cialis online uk buy cheap cialis online australia buy cialis china cialis quick delivery uk will cialis go generic cialis online amazon buy cialis at walmart


‘Transformers: Age Of Extinction’ on pace for highest opening of the year

June 28th, 2014 - Graham Eley

Michael Bay’s latest blockbuster, ‘Transformers: Age Of Extinction’, starring Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz and Jack Reynor, is on course for the highest opening of the year so far at the North American weekend box office after grossing a powerful $41.3m on Friday (including Thursday previews).  It should also be the year’s first film to exceed the $100m milestone over the three days and, with a strong Saturday, could reach as high as $105m.


The franchise fans enjoyed the sci-fi adventure far more than critics awarding it a healthy ‘A-‘ CinemaScore against an appalling 18% RT critical rating.  Unsurprisingly, 64% of the audience was male.


With a whopping $180m production budget and a monster $145m marketing spend, it was under considerable pressure to deliver the goods.  It opened on a market high 4243 theatres.

Lord/Miller directing duo catches markets off-guard for 2nd time this year

June 15th, 2014 - Graham Eley

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are heading for their second opening weekend of the year that massively exceeds expectations at the North American box office after ’22 Jump Street’ arrived with a stunning $25m on Friday (including a $5.5m haul from Thursday previews).  Boosted by an ‘A-‘ CinemaScore from first night audiences and strong reviews – currently 83% on Rotten Tomatoes – Sony /MGM’s crime comedy sequel is heading for a three day tally around the $62m mark being over $10m more than market predictions.  This follows the directing duo’s sensational opening with  ‘The Lego Movie’ during February, which again caught analysts off guard.


The weekend’s other wide opener, ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2’ also enjoyed a strong Friday.  It grossed $18.5m (inc $2m from Thursday night) ahead of its target family audience arriving on Saturday and Sunday, and an ‘A’ CinemaScore and exceptional reviews – 92% on RT – should propel it towards an impressive $55m over the session.

Social media buzz drives ‘The Fault in Our Stars’

June 8th, 2014 - Graham Eley

Fan girls’ huge social media buzz translated into box office success as Josh Boone’s adaptation of John Green’s bestseller, ‘The Fault in Our Stars’, starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, landed in North America with a spectacular $26m opening Friday (including late Thursday previews).  An additional boost of an ‘A’ CinemaScore from first night audiences and strong reviews – currently 82% on Rotten Tomatoes – puts it on pace for a $52m winning weekend, $15m more than pre-release market expectations.  The tragic young adult drama is Boone’s second feature following ‘Stuck in Love’ two years ago.


The weekend’s other wide release, ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ grossed a soft $10.6m  (inc late Thursday screenings) in second place and will likely stutter to a low $30m over the three days notwithstanding very good reviews – 89% on RT – and a decent ‘B+’ CinemaScore.  This is against the backdrop of a massive $178m budget and Warner Bros is already looking towards the international markets for a bailout.


Last weekend’s No. 1, ‘Maleficient’, was only $0.6m behind for a strong second Friday hold.  It should secure second place over the entire weekend with a solid a $35m, after factoring in family appeal, which would represent a low 50% fall for the cialis sydney cialis sale canada generic cialis 5mg online generic cialis cvs cialis online pay with paypal cheapest cialis 20mg online buy cialis online u.s. pharmacy

Confident opening for ‘Maleficent’

May 31st, 2014 - Graham Eley

Disney’s $180m Black Beauty update, ‘Maleficent’, starring Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning, enjoyed a powerful $24.2m opening Friday (inc Thursday night previews) at the North American box office.


First night audiences liked it more than critics, awarding the film an excellent ‘A’ CinemaScore against an average 50% Rotten Tomatoes’ critical rating and should have more influence on word of mouth.  With little competition within the family market, the dark fairy tale remains on pace for a $65m+ weekend in line with top end market predictions.


It was a disappointing start for the weekend’s other wide opener, ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’.  Seth MacFarlane’s ‘R’ rated follow up to ‘Ted’ grossed a soft $6m on Thursday night and Friday and will only just exceed $15m for a poor three days.  This has left forecasts for the Western comedy being revised downwards a second time.


Last weekend’s No. 1, ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’, split the two openers in second place as ‘Godzilla’ had done the week before, after grossing a further $9.4m on Friday.  It faces a $32m weekend, which would represent a slightly higher than expected week-on-week 65% fall over comparable three day prednisone a generic drug

Market absorbs tentpole saturation

May 25th, 2014 - Graham Eley

Bryan Singer’s ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ is the third tentpole to arrive in North America during the last month and looks set for a similar opening weekend as the others.  The Marvel mutant adventure grossed $36m on Friday (including $8.1m from late night Thursday previews) and should be on pace for $93m over the three day session – the same as ‘Godzilla’ and slightly higher than ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ – and $110m for the Memorial Day weekend as a whole.  This is less than some of the more optimistic revised forecasts after strong reviews – currently 93% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes – and excellent figures for Thursday previews, which did not get under way until 22.00.  But with first night audiences awarding it an ‘A’ CinemaScore and marketing taking full advantage of a stellar cast, including, amongst many others, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and Ellen Page, there is still scope for word of mouth to escalate and drive the film nearer $115m.


The other wide weekend opener, ‘Blended’, starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, could only muster a disappointing $4.3m on Friday.  Not for the first time with an Adam Sandler vehicle, first night audiences, who awarded it an ‘A-‘ CinemaScore, liked it far more than critics, as evidenced by a truly appalling 15% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.  As things stand, the Warner Bros’ romCom is on course for $16m and $19m three and four day totals respectively being around $10m below market expectations for the longer session.


Last weekend’s No.1, ‘Godzilla’ spilt the two openers in second place.  The giant lizard remake took a heavy 77% fall from last week’s high starting point when grossing a further $8.8m on Friday.  It should finish the three days around the $30m mark and take another $9m on the fourth.prednisone 1 mg price

Giant lizard remake mauls the opposition

May 18th, 2014 - Graham Eley

Warner Bros’ Godzilla has a shot at beating Captain America 2’s $95m highest opening weekend of the year after landing in North America with a jaw dropping $38.5m Friday (including $9.3m from Thursday night previews).  This would exceed market expectations by a good $25m but fan boy front-loading could prevent it from hitting the $100m milestone.


Clearly, the giant lizard remake has already established a winning momentum but strong reviews – currently 73% positive on Rotten Tomatoes – and a healthy ‘B+’ CinemaScore from first night audiences will not do word of mouth any harm.

R-rated comedy enjoys spectacular opening

May 10th, 2014 - Graham Eley

Universal’s R-rated comedy, ‘Neighbours’, starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron, has hugely exceeded expectations at the North American box office with a stunning $19.5m opening Friday (including $2.56m from late night Thursday shows).  A so-so ‘B’ CinemaScore from first night audiences, lower than expected after solid reviews – currently standing at 73% on Rotten Tomatoes – might slightly take the edge off word of mouth but it is still on pace for a powerful $48.5m weekend session.


Meanwhile, the existing No. 1, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’, could only muster $10.1m after suffering a heavy fall from last Friday.  It leaves Sony’s superhero sequel facing a soft second weekend hold around the $37m mark in line with more prudent forecasts.  The international markets may well compensate but the possibility of over-exposure/genre fatigue will concern Sony with the franchise still having two other films in the pipeline.cost of lexapro prescription

‘Spidey 2’ makes Sony sweat

May 4th, 2014 - Graham Eley

Sony’s ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2’, starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Jamie Foxx, arrived in North America with a so-so $35.5m opening Friday (including $8.7m from late Thursday screenings).  This is in line with scaled down expectations after Thursday night was quieter than expected, and the superhero sequel should finish the weekend around the $90m mark but only if there was solid support from family audiences on Saturday and Sunday.  Some where predicting $100m+ earlier in the week.


The pressure is on for Sony with the film carrying a whopping production budget in excess of $250m and a marketing spend close to $200m.  The film received disappointing reviews – currently 54% on Rotten Tomatoes – but a more generous ‘B+’ CinemaScore from first night audiences (and an A- amongst the important under 25 group).


Disney’s ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ currently holds the record for the highest opening of the year so far with $95m.purchase lexapro online

Another box office failure for Johnny Depp

April 20th, 2014 - Graham Eley

The Easter holiday is traditionally a difficult one at the North America box office but nobody could have anticipated Transcendence’s catastrophic opening .  Things looked dodgy on Thursday night when a quiet start left market analysts predicting an underwhelming $20m session at the top end but a truly putrid $4.8m Friday, could leave it facing a final tally as much as $8m lower.  And with poor reviews – a shocking 19% Rotten Tomatoes rating – and an equally bad ‘C+’ CinemaScore from first night audiences, it has no momentum and faces box office oblivion against the backdrop of a $100m budget.


The sci-fi adventure marks the directorial debut of Oscar winning cinematographer, Wally Pfister (‘Inception’), and stars Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall and Morgan Freeman.  It will be Johnny Depp’s fourth consecutive box office failure.


Meanwhile, last weekends No. 1 and 2, the Rio and Captain America sequels,  are in a tight battle for the top spot, which is too close to call.  They are both likely to close the session around the $25m cialis daily online cialis ordering cialis cheapest price order cialis 20mg 30 pill cialis daily use cost lower cost cialis cialis generic reviews

‘Rio 2’ establishes early lead

April 13th, 2014 - Graham Eley

Fox’s Rio 2 held the slenderest of leads over Captain America: The Winter Soldier after Friday when both films over-performed in the battle for the weekend No. 1 spot at the North American box office.


With a powerful $12m Friday from a market high 3,948 theatres and an excellent ‘A’ CinemaScore propelling word of mouth, Rio 2 should finish the weekend close to $45m, a good $3-5m above market expectations.


The Winter Soldier was only $0.1m behind from 3,938 theatres but needed a good lead on Friday to have had a realistic chance of negating Rio 2’s Saturday and Sunday family audiences.  The superhero sequel, nevertheless, is on pace for a $41m three-day session, which would represent a decent 49% weekly fall (stripping out its opening Thursday), 6% less than expected.

‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ blitzes domestic box office

April 5th, 2014 - Graham Eley

The latest Marvel/Disney tentpole, ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’, starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson, landed in North America with a whacking $37m on Thursday night (starting at a comparatively early 20.00) and Friday.  With an ‘A’ CinemaScore from first night audiences and strong reviews – currently leading to an 88% Rotten Tomato rating – momentum should power it to a staggering $95m over the weekend.  This would be the highest April opening of all time, beating Universal’s current record-holder ‘Fast Five’ by $9m.


Darren Aronofsky’s biblical epic ‘Noah’, which made a confident start last weekend, grossed a disappointing $4.9m on Friday.  It will finish the weekend around the $17m mark, being $4m below more modest market projections.


‘Divergent’ is in the No.3 spot after grossing $4.1m during its third Friday in play and the action sci-fi adventure is on pace for a lightweight $12m weekend.price for lexapro without insurance

Strong Friday opening for ‘Noah’

March 30th, 2014 - Graham Eley

Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Noah’, starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly and Anthony Hopkins, grossed a strong $15.2m at Friday’s North American box office, leaving it on pace for a $39m opening weekend.  It’s a confident start in line with projections from Thursday night screenings and running $4m above original market forecasts.


First night audiences gave the Old Testament epic a low ‘C’ CinemaScore, but it is potentially misleading with 60%+ awarding the film higher.  The wide range of opinions reflect the ongoing debate surrounding Aronofsky’s controversial adaptation, which should help keep the film in the public eye and not damage word of mouth.


It is attracting an older audience, unsurprisingly, with 74% over 25 and there is an even gender mix.

‘Divergent’ builds platform for franchise success

March 22nd, 2014 - Graham Eley

Neil Burger’s ‘Divergent’, starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James, did enough on Friday at the North American box office for Lionsgate to continue with its proposed three film franchise and, with an ‘A’ CinemaScore from first night audiences, the Veronica Roth adaptation has built a decent platform notwithstanding missing out on high end forecasts.  The market was tricky to read with pre-sales defying poor reviews and the film’s Friday tally of $22.8m from 3,936 theatres leaves it on pace for a $56m weekend.


Disney’s ‘Muppets Most Wanted’, the weekend’s only other wide release, could only muster a soft $4.6m from 3,194 theatres on Friday.  Saturday and Sunday family audiences will provide some assistance but it is unlikely to climb much beyond a disappointing $14.5m, a good $5m off studio projections.lexapro cash price

‘Need For Speed’ crashes at North American box office

March 16th, 2014 - Graham Eley

DreamWorks’ PG-13 rated ‘Need For Speed’, starring Aaron Paul and Dominic Cooper, fell flat on Friday at the North American box office when it grossed a soft $6.6m from 3,115 theatres with huge 3D ‘premium rate’ coverage.  Thursday night screenings had suggested that the video game adaptation was on pace to finish the weekend around $28m at the top end of market forecasts but will now fall well short of the more modest $25m studio projections.  It did receive a reasonable ‘B+’ CinemaScore from first-night audiences, which may be enough for a slight push towards a $20m weekend.


The other wide weekend opener, ‘Tyler Perry’s Single Moms Club’ fared even worse and could only muster a shocking $3.2m on Friday.  It did receive a strong ‘A’ CinemaScore but market saturation of Perry’s brand will prevent the comedy drama from reaching much beyond $8/9m over the three days, being approximately  50% of Lionsgate’s forecast.


Elsewhere, ‘Mr. Peabody & Sherman’ enjoyed a superb second Friday  hold, taking $5.4m from a market high 3,951 theatres for a low 31% week on week fall.  Saturday and Sunday family audiences should drive it towards $23m and an unlikely weekend box office victory.


Last weekend’s No.1, ‘300: Rise of an Empire’ is in a battle for second place with ‘Need For Speed’ after grossing $5.8m on Friday.  It takes the R rated action adventure to $65m domestically.


Meanwhile, Wes Anderson’s ‘Grand Budapest Hotel’ continued to make the headlines after its spectacular opening in last weekend’s speciality market.  The idiosyncratic comedy expanded to 66 theatres as part of a standard platform release and bagged a powerful $16,705 per screen place to buy cialis online reviewscialis price in saudi arabia cialis for daily use 5 mg cost buy cialis 60 mg online cialis generic cost generic cialis from usa reviews cialis to buy

‘300’ sequel heading for easy win

March 8th, 2014 - Graham Eley

Warner Bros ‘300: Rise Of An Empire’ grossed $17.7m on Friday in line with top end market forecasts as it heads for an easy win at the North American weekend box office.  The epic adventure opened in 3470 theatres and should end the weekend around the $43m mark.  First night audiences awarded the epic adventure a so-so ‘B’ CinemaScore, which is unlikely to influence word of mouth either way.


It’s the sequel to ‘300’ with the original’s director, Zack Snyder, returning as co-writer and one of six producers.  Noam Murro has taken over the directorial duties for his second film after ‘Smart People’, and Sullivan Stapleton and Eva Green have come in as the film’s leads.


The other weekend wide opener, ‘Mr. Peabody and Sherman’ arrived on Friday with a solid $8m from a market high 3,934 theatres.  Boosted by an ‘A’ CinemaScore, the DreamWorks animation should cash in on Saturday and Sunday family audiences and has a shot at exceeding $30m for the weekend.


The film’s characters come from the Sixties TV animation,  ‘Peabody’s Improbable History’, which formed part of ‘The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. Rob Minkoff (‘Lion King’) directs and Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Matthew Broderick and James Earl Jones are amongst the buy for levitra

‘Non-Stop’ makes strong start

March 1st, 2014 - Graham Eley

Universal’s ‘Non-Stop’, starring Liam Neeson, comfortably exceeded expectations on its opening Friday at the North American box office, grossing a strong $10.6m from 3,090 theatres.  An ‘A-‘ CinemaScore will further propel word of mouth, leaving the air bound thriller on pace for an excellent weekend tally around the $30m mark.


The ‘Son of God’ was almost impossible to track coming into the weekend with its marketing campaign targeted at religious groups rather than usual cinema audiences.  As it turned out, the shortened version of the History channel’s ‘The Bible’ hit the mark on its debut and grossed a stunning $9.5m from 3,255 theatres.  It also received an ‘A-‘ CinemaScore, setting up a close battle with ‘Non-Stop’ for weekend supremacy.


Last weekend’s No.1, ‘The Lego Movie’, remains active in a market high 3,770 theatres.  It grossed a further $4.4m on Friday in third place and should come close to reaching $20m over the three levitra safely online

Toy blockbuster builds momentum

February 23rd, 2014 - Graham Eley

‘The Lego Movie’ grossed an impressive $7.3m at Friday’s North American box office, putting it on pace for a higher than expected $32m over the three days.  It will be the animated comedy’s third successive weekend win and justifies Warner Bros’ expansion from 3,375 to 3,890 theatres.


Relativity’s ‘3 Days to Kill’, starring Kevin Costner, Amber Heard and Hailee Steinfeld, earned $4m from 2,872 theatres on its Friday debut.  It was in line with already low market expectations and the spy thriller could struggle to make much more than $10m during the weekend.  First night audiences gave it a ‘B’ CinemaScore, which is unlikely to influence word of mouth one way or the other.


The weekend’s other wide release, ‘Pompeii’, received the same CinemaScore but should fall on the wrong side of $10m from 2,658 theatres after a disappointing $3.4m Friday tally.  The disaster within the movie is not the only one, with the volcano adventure carrying a production cost in excess of $ place to order cialis online price of cialis 20mg price cialis daily use cialis online paypal payment generic cialis shipped from canada generic cialis daily order cialis online canadian pharmacy

‘The Lego Movie’ off to a flyer

February 9th, 2014 - admin

Warner Bros’ first animation feature for three years, ‘The Lego Movie’, grossed a whopping $17m from 3,375 theatres on its Friday launch to take market analysts by surprise.  With an ‘A’ CinemaScore and strong reviews propelling word of mouth, the comedy animation could reach a spectacular $60m over the three days, approximately $15m above expectations.


George Clooney’s ‘The Monuments Men’ opened with a $7m Friday from 3,083 theatres in line with market forecasts.  Audiences liked it more than critics, awarding it a decent ‘B+’ CinemaScore and the art recovery drama stands a chance of hitting $20m by Sunday night.


The other wide release, ‘Vampire Academy’, made a disastrous start, only earning $1.7m from 2,676 theatres on Friday.  Bad reviews and a disappointing ‘B-‘ CinemaScore should condemn the Weinsteins’ teen fantasy to a poor $4m.
