Needless to mention, ‘Iron Man 3‘ shattered many international records and standards. One of the highest anticipated and first major co-productions between America and China, having gone through the fires of speculation, criticizing and approved by the stern regulations of China, the film caused a world-wide stir, though not released yet in America. Congratulations to them and their success in finding a way to work with China’s strong and narrow rules.

On the international charts this week, ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation‘ (Par.) and ‘The Croods‘ (Fox) topped the charts, opening strong and picking up momentum as they travel the world. On the domestic charts this week, the Joes take #1, leading strongly ahead of the rest, but followed by the caveman family of funnies, ‘Tyler Perry’s Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor‘ (LGF) slipping into the comfortable #3 position, ‘Olympus Has Fallen‘ (FD) blowing into #4, and ‘Oz The Great and Powerful‘ (BV) blows into #5.

Trailing the top 10, ‘The Place Beyond the Pines‘ (Focus) confuses its way into #20, throwing many people off with the complicated 3 movies in 1 feel, a bit like ‘Australia‘ (2008) that ended three times.

Still on top, ‘Oz The Great And Powerful‘ (BV) sits on top on several international charts and at the domestic box office. ‘The Call‘ (TriStar) made it to #2, followed by ‘The Incredible Burt Wonderstone‘ (WB) at #3. Dropping down the charts, ’Jack the Giant Slayer‘ (WB/NL) falls to #4, ‘Identity Thief‘ (Uni.) skid into #5, and ‘Snitch‘ (LG/S) remains at #6 from the last week’s count.

Happy green day! Filled with people wearing green pinching people not wearing green, green beer, and many more green delights that blow the minds of green fans, like myself! Internationally, ‘Oz The Great And Powerful‘ (BV) SLAMMED the charts of several countries, the bewitching tale of the wizard of Oz, the Emerald City, and the witches have bewitched audiences with their glorious visual effects and glamorous world. This week, at the domestic box office, Oz is #1, knocking Jack off the top spot of the bean stalk, along with ‘Identity Thief‘ (Uni.), ‘21 and Over‘ (rela.), and ‘Dead Man Down‘ (FD). ‘Snitch‘ (LG/S) falls to #6, ‘Safe Haven‘ (Rela.) to #7, ‘Silver Linings Playbook‘ (Wein.) to #9, just behind ‘Escape from Planet Earth‘ (Wein.) by less than half a million. Just barely holding on, ‘The Last Exorcism Part II‘ (CBS) takes #10. Read more on Box Office Results (03.17.13)…

The cute and spunky, ‘Escape from Planet Earth‘ (Wein.) flies into #7, with the ballroom dancing, awkward, couple at #8, an explosive father-and-son reunion at #9, and ‘Dark Skies‘ (W/Dim.) finishes the top 10.

A week after the Oscars and the box office reflects the thoughts of the public. However, this week, comedy and romance sit at the top, the more serious of the nominations and movies trailing on. Topping the charts at #1 is ‘Identity Theft‘ (Uni.), followed by the new release, ‘Snitch‘ (Sum.) at #2, and ‘Safe Haven‘ (Rela.) at #3.

New on the weekday charts this week, ‘No (2013)‘ (SPC) takes #41 as ‘Like Someone in Love‘ (IFC) rides into #55, and ‘The Package (2013)‘ (Anch.)
This week, the 5th installment of ‘Die Hard‘ takes #1 with fully orchestrated explosions and action. Following just behind, perhaps in a car, is ‘Identity Thief‘ (Uni.) and then, a little further behind, ‘Safe Haven‘ (Rela.) at #3. New release, ‘Escape From Planet Earth‘, another Weinstein Co. production, is released and settles into the top 10, at #4, within its first week. ‘Warm Bodies‘ (Sum.) Follows #5, ‘Beautiful Creatures (2013)‘ (WB) storms into #6, and ‘Silver Linings Playbook‘ (Wein.) drops one to #7.

Hello World! With the spikes in the box offices after the results of the Golden Globes, Critics Choice Awards, and announcement of the official nominations for the 2013 Oscars, the box office results are tossed back and forth. This weekend, new release, ‘Mama‘ (Uni.) sits at #1 grossing more than $10M more than #2, ‘Zero Dark Thirty‘ (Sony), both movies feature Jessica Chastain. Holding on and jumping up on the charts, ‘Silver Linings Playbook‘ (Wein.) takes #3, ‘Gangster Squad‘ (WB) at #4, and new release, ‘Broken City‘ (Fox) falls into #5. This week’s #2, ‘A Haunted House‘ (ORF) drops to #6, unable to contend with the Oscar nominees. Tarantino’s unchained historical fiction shoots into #7, followed by the beautiful musical, ‘Les Miserables (2012)‘ (Uni.), ‘The Hobbit’ (WB) at #9, and California’s government, the Schwarzeneggs, takes #10.

Whoever plotted out the scheduling of awards was quite the smart cookie! Pacing everything so close together so as to bring up the expectations and anticipation of who will receive the Oscars, the Critics’ Choice Awards and Golden Globes really ramp up the hype, either pushing one in front of the others or evening out the playing field. However, this week’s box office was quite the competition. Internationally, ‘The Hobbit‘ (WB) still leads on the frontlines. Surprise, surprise, but not really, ‘Django Unchained’ (Wein.) is #1, followed by ‘Texas Chainsaw 3D‘ (LGF). ‘The Hobbit’ (WB) falls to #3, ‘Les Miserables (2012)‘ (Uni.) down to #4, but ‘Jack Reacher‘ (Par.) holds onto #5. The family-fun ‘Parental Guidance‘ (Fox) is in at #6, ‘This is 40‘ (Uni.) hangs onto #7, ‘Lincoln‘ (BV) #8, and ‘The Guilt Trip‘ (Par.) drives into #9. Rounding out the top 10 is ‘Promised Land (2012)‘ (Focus), which jumps up 19 to make it into the top 10.

Happy New Year! To kick the first week off with Oscar tension is so exciting! There is no better way to start the new year than with healthy competition that the entire world is watching. Internationally, ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘ (WB) claims #1 in several countries, but #3 domestically. The epic and inspiring journey did, however, place 6th for the year of 2012. And, in America, it managed to stay #1 for a couple of days before the bounty hunters shot it up, and then was massacred by a new release. This week saw, new release, ‘Django Unchained‘ (Wein.) on top, followed by ‘Les Miserables Read more on Box Office (01.06.13)…

‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘ (WB) has swept the international box office, creating a sensation that rivals the magnitude of Skyfall, though we can only wait to see how long it lasts. This week and this weekend, ‘The Hobbit‘ sits on top, almost doubling ‘Les Miserables (2012)‘ (Uni.) during the week with ‘Django Unchained‘ (Wein.) shooting in at #3. New on the weekday charts, ‘Jack Reacher‘ (Par.) is #4, followed by ‘This Is 40‘ (Uni.) at #5. The comedy, ‘Parental Guidance‘ (Fox) takes #6 and #7 is ‘Lincoln‘ (BV). The mother and son trips into #8, followed by our fearless childhood guardians, and the fuzzy monsters that we love. With the holidays upon us as the time of family gatherings, its little surprise to find the family comedies and classics outranking the rest. Read more on Box Office (12.30.12)…
With the international release of ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Adventure‘ (WB), it claims #1 wherever it has been released, including the American box office.

Congratulations! With the release of ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘ (WB), the epic prequel to The Lord Of The Rings series, the sun has set on ‘Breaking Dawn Part 2‘ (Sum.) and ‘Skyfall‘ (Sony) has jumped to the top of many charts, including the American box office. Behind it is ‘Rise of the Guardians‘ (Par./DW), like last week, ‘Lincoln‘ (BV) at #4, and ‘Life of Pi‘ at #5. New release, ‘Playing for Keeps‘ (FD), featuring Gerard Butler, at #6 and the only other difference from last week is ‘Killing Them Softly‘ (Wein.) falling to #10. Due to a controversy of unsatisfied fans of director Andrew Dominik’s interpretation of the characters, there are quite a few contradicting reviews turning fans off to the flick. However, most movie-watchers found it pleasing and Pitt’s acting killed them softly. Like ‘The Hobbit‘, which claimed #1 this weekend, some viewers claimed the movie made them sick while others marveled at the clear images the 48 FPS brought them.

As we near 12.12.12, the big question of who will be #1 on, the rumored, the end of the world is, currently, up for grabs! Unsurprisingly, ‘Breaking Dawn Part 2‘ (Sum.) has been dethroned in several other countries around the world, being replaced with the happy holiday 3D flick, ‘Rise of the Guardians‘ (P/DW), a personal favorite of mine that I can’t wait to add to my movie collection! ‘Skyfall‘ (Sony) remains on top in many countries, though many stray down the American charts, finding favor with the epic movies about self-discovery like ‘Life of Pi‘ (Fox), which is #1 in China, and ‘Cloud Atlas‘ (WB).

What a thrill! The international release of ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2‘ (Sum.) has landed at the top of almost all of the charts. Beating out ‘Skyfall‘ (Sony) without a hitch, it also remains #1 during this week’s box office count. Within the top 10, ‘Skyfall‘ follows at #2 and ‘Lincoln‘ (BV) at #3. Recent releases, ‘Life of Pie‘ (Fox) jumps up three to #4, followed by ‘Rise of the Guardians‘ (Par./DW) up to #5. ‘Wreck-It Ralph‘ (BV) drops two to #6, followed by ‘Red Dawn (2012)‘ (FD), a recent release, at #7. ‘Flight‘ (Par.) drops three to #8, the underdog, ‘Silver Linings Playbook‘ (Wein.) floats up four to #9, and ‘Argo‘ (WB) drops one to #10. All in all, many have made several leaps up as older movies fallen at slower rates.

On top on the international front, Skyfall (Sony) still sits at the top of box offices around the world. But, in America, Breaking Dawn Part 2 (Summ.) sits comfortably at #1 and Skyfall, gracefully, falls in behind. From last week’s #15, Lincoln (BV) climbs to #3, which, unfortunately, means Wreck-It Ralph (BV) crumbles to #4, and Flight (Par.) hangs on to #5. New on the charts, Rise of the Guardians (Par/DW) rises to #6, Life of Pi (Fox) drifts into #7, and Red Dawn (FD) invades #8. Argo (wb), unable to escape the madness, lands on #9 and, the movie that had topped all charts just a month ago, Taken 2 (Fox) takes the hit to #10. Overall, there was nothing unexpected for, new on the charts, Silver Linings Playbook (Wein.), which made it to #12. The Sessions (Fox) made it to #13, Samsara (Osci.) to #18, and, due to the holidays, fewer people went to the movies this week than the usual count.

What an extravagant change in the charts! For most of the week, Skyfall (Sony) placed #1 daily and over all in American box offices, grossing over $117 million. Wreck-It Ralph (BV) managed to hold onto #2, followed by Flight (Par.) and then Argo (WB). Staying at #5, Taken 2 (Fox) is followed by Cloud Atlas (WB) and Hotel Transylvania (Sony) drops to #10. New releases during the week included A Royal Affair (Magn.) at # 44, Dangerous Liasons (WGUSA) at #52, and Starlet (MBox) at #54. Internationally, Skyfall (Sony) holds onto #1 in most of the countries, but many expect the international reaction to continue on for some time, this being the first of the Bond series to be released internationally before nationally.

As ever-changing as the recent weather, during the week, Argo (WB) was in a clear lead on an every day basis nationally. Sitting on top of the weekday’s polls, even despite the release of Cloud Atlas (Warner Bros.) during the week and the weekend ride of Silent Hill: Revelation 3D (ORF), Argo claimed the #1 spot on the charts during the weekdays. Cloud Atlas (WB) followed with Hotel Transylvania (Sony) at #3 and Paranormal Activity 4 (Par.) at #4. Outside of the top 10, The Master (Wein.) fell down to #20, followed by The Dark Knight Rises at #21. The Bourne Legacy (Uni.), currently #1 in China, fell down to #26 on American charts. The Other Son (Cohen), a new release, climbed up to #29, but many other movies fell as opposed to climbed higher on the charts. For the most part, thrillers and movies with Halloween themes are still doing quite well in theaters, despite being after Halloween. Read more on Box Office (11.04.12)…

The ever-changing box office never ceases to amaze as movies are released around the holidays. The first noticeable difference earlier this week was Taken 2 (Fox Studios) falling off its number 1 spot on the international charts and, mostly, being replaced by Paranormal Activity 4 (Paramount Studios), but that only lasted a couple days before Taken 2 climbed back up to the top of several charts.
