‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Sets $238M Box Office Record!

12.20.2015 | By |

As we all expected, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the highest grossing opening movie in film history. What most of us didn’t know was what number it was ultimately going to arrive at. Now we know. The Walt Disney Studios announced today that Star Wars: The Force Awakens has set a new all-time domestic debut record with an estimated $238M. With a five-day international debut of $279M, the film has taken in $517M globally. Now these numbers could still change, but not by much.   Read More

Why I Didn’t Go See ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

05.4.2015 | By |

I made my way through the crowded isles at the cinema, my ten-year-old brother at my side, and made myself as tall as I could in order to see over people’s heads in hopes of finding a few empty seats. I had made it a point to get there at least thirty minutes before the movie started and even then the theatre was packed. I finally spotted two empty seats in a dark corner next to an unkempt older man. The theatre was loud with teenagers hollering over almost every line. The older man next to me did not have the most appealing body odor. If this was the case at the average theater in Queens, New York, which I go to for its proximity and convenience, I cannot begin to imagine what it must have been like in the city. In the end, as much as I loved 2012’s The Avengers, I was not a fan of that movie-going experience. Read More

'The Avengers' passes $600 million in US!

Marvel’s The Avengers is expected to cross the $600 million domestic box office threshold today, becoming one of only three films in history ever to reach this milestone. The Super Hero film’s global total is now an estimated $1,438.3 million, and it stands as the #3 film of all time globally and domestically.

Marvel’s The Avengers opened in North America May 4 with a staggering $207.4 million – the biggest domestic debut of all time – and has been shattering domestic box office records ever since including the industry’s all-time second weekend record with $103 million; fastest film to reach $200 million (3 days), $300 million (9 days), $400 million (14 days), and $500 million (23 days); and highest Saturday ($69.5 million) and Sunday ($57 million) totals. It is the #4 film of all time internationally with $838.9 million.

Among only 12 films that have grossed $1 billion at the global box office, Marvel’s The Avengers is one of five billion-dollar Disney releases, which also include Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, Alice in Wonderland, Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story 3, and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

'Think Like a Man' takes the #1 spot at the box office!

We begin the week with an incredible surprise! ‘Think Like a Man’ premiered in the number one spot, finally taking ‘The Hunger Games’ out of the spot it occupied for four consecutive weeks. This comedy not only makes you die laughing, but it has done the impossible taking the first place with $33 million dollars.
