28/03/2016 Box Office Round-Up

457632-90f47086-f2ba-11e3-8a62-ce6d4e05a259

It’s been a mega weekend with an absolutely huge opening and several examples of good counter-scheduling. You can see our predictions for the weekend here.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Budget: $250 M

Overall Box Office: $424 M

Domestic Box Office: $170.01 M

Weekend Box Office: $170.01 M

Our Prediction: $180 M

Comments: Batman v Superman blew away expectations and critics by earning a stunning $170.01 million domestically this weekend, GL was only $10 m off with its prediction. Batman v Superman needs to earn at least a billion worldwide to be considered a success, and it’s well on his way, but the drop-off next week will be very interesting.

Zootopia

Budget: $150 M

Overall Box Office: $696.7 M

Domestic Box Office: $146.7 M

Weekend Box Office: $23.1 M

Our Prediction: $25 M

Comments: Taking advantage of an available family audience and the Easter holiday, Zootopia came just under expectations and earned $23.1 M this weekend.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

Budget: $18 M

Overall Box Office: $26.1 M

Domestic Box Office: $18.1 M

Weekend Box Office: $18.1 M

Our Prediction: $18 M

Comments: We may not have been spot-on with Zootopia and BvS, but we nailed it when it comes to My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 with the comedy sequel reeling in just over $18 M.

  1. I’m laughing into my second cup of coffee at how off my predictions were. It’s nice to see that more people opted to go see MBFGW 2 than I’d predicted. Perhaps this is why I’m not a movie executive. 😉

    […]the drop-off next week will be very interesting.

    Indeed. Though I still think that it won’t be as significant as expected. After all, there might be people who decided to not go see it opening weekend.

  2. The best thing to come from Batman v Superman is all of the videos that are starting to popup picking apart the movie. Critics hated it & a huge amount of fanboys seem to have problems with it. I do wonder how many will go & hate watch it a 2nd time. I’m still convinced it’s going to have a massive drop off next week, but that might be more wishful thinking on my part. If the drop off is big enough it could force Warner to rethink things & hire someone else to take over for Snyder. Fingers crossed! 🙂

  3. I demand a fucking refund for that pile of shit that is BvS. It made no sense and I still feel raped. Henry Cavill is a piece of wood, Affleck is an uglier piece of wood and Gabot is an Israeli twig that needs fucking snapped.

    • Did you have trouble understanding what Gal Gadot was saying? My husband said he couldn’t understand her at all, just curious if others had that experience.
