Weekend Box Office Predictions: 4/14 – 4/16

Mid-April is not heavy with high profile releases. Next weekend sees the saturation of four wide releases, including Disney’s nature doc Born in China, A24’s action comedy Free Fire, and the Rosario Dawson-starring thriller Unforgettable.

This weekend, however, we see only one major release, and it could be a doozy. The Fate of the Furious. Furious 7, the franchise’s previous installment, made over a billion dollars worldwide and an opening weekend gross of $147 million domestic.

Will The Fate of the Furious live up to those numbers?

Weekend Box Office Predictions: 3/31-4/2

March is coming to an end, and it is has been a healthy month at the box office. Beauty and the Beast has continued to dominate over its first two weeks and is looking to add to its domestic gross.

Two new releases take aim at the Disney giant: Fox’s Boss Baby and Paramount’s Ghost in the Shell. Both are opening in over 3,000 theaters. But can either of them contend with the Beast?

Trailer Rundown Super Bowl Edition: Transformers and Ghost in the Shell

We’ve made it folks. We have seen trailers belabor the point more and more over the course of the 21st century, slowly inching their way to three minutes in length (or more), revealing endings and plot twists because marketing departments don’t care about spoilers (money…they care about money).

We have seen trailers for trailers, which is to say snippets of a trailer that play at the beginning of a trailer just in case you forgot that you were about to watch a trailer and were about to click away from the video on Youtube. Studios that believe every internet-perusing teen is a coked-up ADHD mental case that can’t sit still for two seconds have both elongated the movie trailer and shortened it into what are essentially GIFs waiting to happen.
