11/04/2016 Box Office Round-Up

boxoffice

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.

The Boss

Budget: $29 M

Overall Box Office: $24.5 M

Domestic Box Office: $24.5 M

Weekend Box Office: $24.5 M

Our Prediction: $20 M

Comments: The Boss pulled off a great upset this weekend, when it usurped the big budgeted, superhero flick Batman v Superman and exceeded expectations by pulling in almost $5 million more than we expected. A great weekend for Melissa McCarthy.

Batman v Superman

Budget: $250 M

Overall Box Office: $785 M

Domestic Box Office: $296 M

Weekend Box Office: $23.14 M

Our Prediction: $22.5 M

Comments:Batman v Superman met our expectations, but still tumbled to second place to Melissa McCarthy’s The Boss. When it rains it pours, nowhere but down for the caper now.

Hardcore Henry

Budget: $10 M

Overall Box Office: $7.2 M

Domestic Box Office: $5 M

Weekend Box Office: $5 M

Our Prediction: $10 M

Comments: Ouch. A very bad weekend for Hardcore Henry, which failed to get anywhere near its target gross. What The Boss over earned this weekend, Hardcore Henry lost.

  1. I ended up being right with The Boss, but way off with Hardcore Harry. I heard so many younger guys talking about how awesome Hardcore Harry looked so I thought it would do better. I guess they meant it looks cool, just not cool enough to spend 10 bucks on it!
