  1. 'A Quiet Place' Hopes to Hold off Newcomers and Return to Weekend #1
    Audiences may already be looking ahead to Avengers: Infinity War, but this weekend could feature an interesting battle among the top three. While we're expecting A Quiet Place to return to the weekend's #1 spot, the race could be a little closer should Rampage hold on better than expected or if Amy Schumer's new comedy I Feel Pretty outperforms expectations. The weekend also sees the release of Fox Searchlight's Super Troopers 2 and Lionsgate's release of Traffik into a moderate number of ...
  2. 'Rampage' Tops Weekend Box Office, but 'A Quiet Place' is Making the Most Noise
    It was nearly an upset at the weekend box office, but Warner Bros. and New Line's Rampage was able to hold off a strong second weekend from Paramount's hit horror/thriller A Quiet Place to take the weekend's #1 spot. But that doesn't discount the fact A Quiet Place is less than $400k shy of topping $100 million domestically after just ten days in release. Additionally, Blumhouse's Truth or Dare delivered a solid, third place debut. With an estimated $34.5 million, Warner Bros. and New L...

Leading the way is China with an estimated $15.6 mi...
  4. 'Black Panther' Dominates Lackluster March at the Box Office
    Following a record-breaking February, which saw the February domestic box office top $1 billion for the first time ever, March saw a -24% decline compared to 2017 with calendar grosses totaling $891 million. One thing didn't change in March, however, and that was the #1 film as Black Panther not only dominated the month of February, but was also responsible for nearly 25% of March's overall gross. In fact, thanks to Black Panther, even though March was such a down month, the first quarter o...
  5. 'A Quiet Place' Delivers Not So Quiet $50 Million Opening
    With a $50 million debut, Paramount's A Quiet Place finished atop the weekend box office in impressive fashion and while Universal's Blockers didn't deliver even half of what A Quiet Place did, the film's $21 million debut was a solid start for the low budget R-rated comedy. The weekend also saw a very strong hold for Warner Bros.'s Ready Player One and Disney and Marvel's Black Panther topped Titanic this weekend to become the third highest grossing domestic release of all-time. Paramo...

  7. 'Ready Player One' Tops Easter Weekend Box Office with $53M Four-Day Debut
    Coming in on par with Mojo's pre-weekend forecast, Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One topped the weekend box office and delivered the director's largest opening weekend in ten years. The weekend also saw a strong second place debut for Lionsgate's Acrimony, the latest film from Tyler Perry, while Black Panther and I Can Only Imagine remain in the top five with their continued impressive runs. Not so impressive was the debut for Pure Flix's God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness, which finishe...

    SATURDAY AM UPDATE: Ready Player One brought in an estimated $15.2 million on Friday, pushing the film's two-day total to $27.2 million. Current expectations are for a four-day total around $52-53 million and $40+ million for the three-day weekend. The film received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. Lionsgate's release of Tyler Perry's Acrimony delivered big numbers on Friday, coming in with an estimated $7.26 million along with an "A-" CinemaScore. The...
  9. 'Pacific Rim 2' Tops Weekend as 'Black Panther' Becomes Fifth Largest Domestic Release of All-Time
    It had to happen at some point and this was the weekend that saw Black Panther's streak as the #1 film at the weekend box office come to an end at the hands of Pacific Rim Uprising. That being said, it wasn't a down weekend for Black Panther at all as it became the highest grossing superhero film of all-time, topping The Avengers with a domestic cume that now totals $630.9 million, becoming one of the top five domestic releases of all-time. This weekend also saw another stellar performa...

    SATURDAY AM UPDATE: With an estimated $10.36 million on Friday, Universal and Legendary's Pacific Rim Uprising led the Friday box office, on its way to a $25+ million weekend and the #1 spot. This pushes Disney and Marvel's Black Panther to second for the first time after six weekends in theaters, but that that isn't to say the film is slowing down as it brought in an estimated $4.38 million on Friday and is now less than $5 million shy of topping The Avengers and becoming the highest gros...
