You Rate The Box Office Winner: 'The Karate Kid'

By: Erik Davis on June 15, 2010 at 1:30PM Comments (3)

'The Karate Kid'Yesterday I was off battling the most horrific head cold known to man, so we missed our weekly poll where I ask you to rate the box office winner. Though it clocked in with a run time that was almost two and a half hours (really? For a Jaden Smith film?), that didn't stop folks from throwing most of their money at The Karate Kid remake...

Box Office: Who Will Win The Weekend?

'The Karate Kid' and 'The A-Team'We’re taking a Hot Tub Time Machine back to the mid-80s this weekend as two films based on properties that were popular back in 1984 arrive in theaters and battle one another for the top spot at the box office. Will one of them exit the weekend as the new box office champion, or will Shrek somehow find his way back up top? Let’s take a look …

Box Office: Who Will Win the Weekend?

'Get Him to the Greek' and 'Splice'Kudos to Shrek Forever After for surprising everyone over the Memorial Day weekend by coming in first place at the box office, ahead of Sex and the City 2 and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Easily one of the most impressive wins of the year so far, but we still have a long ways to go. Can the green ogre pull off another upset this week...

'Sex and the City 2' and 'Prince of Persia'The 2010 summer moviegoing season is in full swing, with Shrek Forever After leading the box office surge last weekend (taking in a respectable, but not earth-shattering $71 million), and now we're approaching one of the biggest weekends of summer: Memorial Day weekend. The three-day holiday weekend has played host to several blockbusters...

Box Office: Who Will Win the Weekend

'Shrek Forever After' and 'MacGruber'As expected (and predicted by me – high five!), Iron Man 2 hung on and beat out Robin Hood to secure back-to-back wins at the box office. This weekend, however, won't be so easy, since we have two more summer heavyweights entering the competition – both of which are sure to...

Box Office: 'Iron Man 2' vs 'Robin Hood' -- Who Will Win?

By: Erik Davis on May 14, 2010 at 3:03PM Comments (10)

'Robin Hood' vs 'Letters to Juliet'Now that we've officially hit the summer movie season, things will begin to get a lot more interesting around these parts. Obviously Iron Man 2 came away victorious last weekend (with a healthy $133 million), but can it do repeat business with two more hefty competitors entering the marketplace? In one corner we have…

'Kick-Ass' or 'Death at a Funeral'Seeing as only one wide release hit theaters last weekend, we took some time off to regroup ourselves in preparation for the upcoming summer blockbuster season. Last week saw a photo finish at the box office between Date Night and Clash of the Titans, with the latter barely winning.

Box Office: Who Will Win The Weekend?

'Clash of the Titans' and 'The Last Song'I've been on a bit of a roll lately when it comes to picking the top earner at the box office, so while I sit here and try to figure out the most comfortable ways to pat myself on the back, let's take a look at what new films are arriving in theaters today...

Box Office: Who Will Win the Weekend? Dragons, Cusack or Alice?

By: Erik Davis on March 26, 2010 at 3:15PM Comments (3)

'How to Train Your Dragon' and 'Hot Tub Time Machine'After successfully predicting that Alice in Wonderland would win the weekend last week (high fives, anyone?), this weekend could finally knock Burton's 3D trip to Wonderland off its magical box office pedestal. Only two major wide releases to go around, but one of them...

Box Office: Who Will Win the Weekend? 'Alice' Again?

By: Erik Davis on March 12, 2010 at 1:57PM Comments (4)

'She's Out of My League'In terms of movie seasons, Alice in Wonderland kicked off what I like to call the Prelude to the Summer – that two-month span before May where the films are big, yes, but not monstrous. This is a time to prepare for summer; like spring training, but for movies. Alice blew the box office wide...

Box Office: Who Will Win the Weekend? 'Cop Out' or 'The Crazies'

By: Erik Davis on February 26, 2010 at 10:52AM Comments (5)

'Cop Out' and 'The Crazies'After skipping last week’s box office challenge due to only one film arriving in theaters (Shutter Island), we’re back now with our predicting gloves on and our game faces ready. While Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island carried enough star power to give it the top spot last week, things may be...

Valentine's Day and The WolfmanEarlier this week we shared the news that Avatar was finally dethroned by Dear John, which means the box office is now a wide open playing field. This weekend finds a star-studded rom-com going up against a special effects-heavy kid flick and the remake of a classic...

'Dear John' Beats 'Avatar' at Box Office

By: Erik Davis on February 8, 2010 at 2:54PM Comments (6)

'Dear John'Not to toot my own horn or anything, but did I or did I not go way out on a limb and predict Dear John to finally beat Avatar at the box office this past weekend? Those Fandango Fanatics who follows our Friday box office posts should already know the answer to that question. Yes, based on...

"Dear John" and "From Paris With Love"I feel like we're at that point where all the other films are cautiously sneaking out from their hiding spots, whispering "Is it over yet?" in regards to Avatar and its massive box office takeover. Unfortunately for them, it's not over yet, as Avatar continues to rake in the cash...

AvatarWe all knew it would happen eventually, we just didn't know when. Now we do. At some point over the weekend, Avatar surpassed Titanic's record-holding total of...
