    Wow Elektra dropped over 70% from it's first weeks total. Well it looks like I'm watching it in a really cheap cinema. Fockers now the second highest grossing Liive action comedy behind Home Alone
  • Are We There Yet? looks like crap...i expected Assault on Precinct 13 to do better given the good reviews i've read about it...and yes, Elektra is a flop! even the producers admitted it...at least we're free to talk about movies' box-office results frankly here, unlike the Elektra thread! hehe
  • neth_rowneth_row PEx Veteran ⭐⭐
    I already half-expected Elektra to be a major flop, considering the trend of previous femme action flicks tanking at the tills. It started with "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle", followed by "Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life". Both films, while moderately strong, didn't live up to box office expectations. The one that really blew up is "Catwoman". Jennifer Garner is popular, but audiences just aren't in the mood for femme capers nowadays. It's good that Warner Bros' Wonder Woman project is still in the freezer because I'm pretty sure any female action film in the near future will suffer the same fate as "Elektra".

    grabe ang laki ng sales drop ng elektra..tsk tsk
  • Meet The Fockers reached the $200M mark in just three weeks :wow:
  • hilarious kasi ung meet the fockers eh. hehehe
  • vp18vp18 PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    iba pa rin ang dating nang action movies pag guy ang bida . Its more realistic to see a man kick *** a lot of men in a movie than a woman doing such. Marami ding guys who dont watch action flicks na babae ang bida. Michismo eka nga . Mahirap ma sustain ang success . Tingnan niyo tapos ng tomb raider yung sequel did not do well.

    Will Are we there yet? remain at no.1?........
  • MerjoMerjo PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Hide And Seek (Robert Deniro & Dakota Fanning) and Alone In the Dark (Christian Slater and Tara Reid) opened this Friday. I have a feeling that Hide & Seek will be #1 movie this weekend. Million Dollar Baby (Clint Eastwood and Hillary Swank) jumped this weekend into more than 2,000 locations/screens. Million Dollar Baby might be in the Top 10 this weekend.

    De Niro Finds Top Spot at Box Office Again

    Robert De Niro returned to the No. 1 slot at the North American box office on Sunday with the thriller "Hide and Seek" six weeks after his comedy "Meet the Fockers" began a three-week reign.

    Several films that featured prominently when Academy Award nominations were unveiled on Tuesday enjoyed stronger ticket sales over the weekend after going into wide release.

    "Hide and Seek" earned an estimated $22 million from 3,005 theaters in the three days since opening Friday, said its distributor, 20th Century Fox. De Niro plays a widower whose daughter, played by Dakota Fanning, has a creepy imaginary friend.

    The News Corp.-owned studio had hoped the $30 million film would open with about $18 million, said Bruce Snyder, president of domestic distribution at Fox.

    "The element of a real actor in a psychological thriller certainly elevated it," he said.

    Last weekend's top movie, the Columbia Pictures family comedy "Are We There Yet?," slipped to No. 2 with $17 million, taking its 10-day haul to $39.1 million. Despite modest ratings in exit surveys last weekend, the Ice Cube comedy lost just 8 percent of its audience, the slightest dip in the top 10. Columbia is a unit of Sony Corp.

    EASTWOOD WINS A ROUND

    "Million Dollar Baby," which picked up seven Oscar nominations, jumped nine places to No. 3 with $11.8 million, after six weekends in limited release. Director Clint Eastwood's tale of a feisty pugilist played by Hilary Swank, was playing in 2,010 theaters, up from 147 last weekend.

    The film was released by Warner Bros., a unit of Time Warner Inc., which had been expecting a $10 million weekend. Its total stands at $21.1 million.

    Eastwood on Saturday night snagged the top prize at the Directors Guild of America Awards, an event that has correctly foreshadowed 50 of the last 56 Oscar winners for best director.

    Leading Oscar contender "The Aviator," with 11 nominations, jumped two places to No. 6 with $7.5 million. Director Martin Scorsese's Howard Hughes biopic added 242 theaters, taking its total to 2,503 outlets. The film has earned $68.2 million to date, and could reach $100 million, said Miramax Films, which is distributing it in the United States. Warner Bros. is releasing it in Canada; the figures combine sales from both territories.

    "Sideways," with five nominations, finally made it into the top 10 in its 15th week. The oenophile comedy jumped four places to No. 7 with $6.3 million, taking its total to $40 million. It expanded to 1,694 theaters from 696 last weekend. The film was released by News Corp.'s Fox Searchlight Pictures.

    "Million Dollar Baby," "The Aviator" and "Sideways" will all compete for best picture at the 77th annual Academy Awards on Feb. 27. The other two contenders for the top prize, Miramax's "Finding Neverland" and Universal's "Ray," also performed solidly, having been in theaters longer.

    "Finding Neverland," earned $2.7 million from 1,258 theaters, taking its total to $35.9 million after 12 weeks. "Ray," which comes out on home video on Tuesday, earned $559,000 from 527 theaters. It has earned $73.8 million after 14 weeks.

    Rounding out this weekend's top five, "Coach Carter" fell two places to No. 4 with $8 million in its third week. Paramount Pictures' Samuel L. Jackson basketball drama has earned $53.6 million to date.

    Universal's "Meet the Fockers" also fell two places, to No. 5, with $7.6 million in its sixth week. The comedy has earned $257.9 million to date.

    Paramount Pictures is a unit of Viacom Inc. Miramax Films is a unit of Walt Disney Co. Universal Pictures, a unit of General Electric Co.-controlled NBC Universal.

    Usually they release films tactically. They release it in a few cities just enough to be eligible for the Oscars. Then they release it on wide after the Globes awarding or Oscar nominations

    oo nga no bat laging ganon, the oscar nominess are always the ones released on december/january? paano naman kaya yung quality movies that had been released earlier?
  • neth_rowneth_row PEx Veteran ⭐⭐

    Like Eternal Sunshine for a Spotless Mind, for example. :) Had it been released in December, I'm sure it'll be one of the frontrunners for the Oscar race. Ditto for Finding Neverland. Looking at the flip side, I don't think Sideways and Million Dollar Baby would've been strong contenders had both been released during the middle of the year.

    May kasama na rin sigurong psychology. Siyempre, the last film that you see ang tatatak sa isip ng isang tao.
