American Sniper Sets Another Record: EOB Weekend Box Office Podcast: 2/02/2015

Project Almanac

Here’s this week’s podcast. Although “American Sniper” broke another record during the Super Bowl weekend, we discuss why there was such a steep dropoff after a very good hold during the previous weekend.

“Paddington” held up well, compared to other films in the top ten.

Michael Bay’s found-footage, time-travel film “Project Almanac” disappointed. Will this discourage studios from cranking out more of these?

Binh and I try to come up with reasons why Kevin Costner’s interracial drama “Black or White” failed to make an impression.

“The Imitation Game” is finally slowing down, although just a tad. We wonder if it could still reach the $100M milestone at its current pace.

“The Loft” proves Binh’s theory that when you showcase of a bunch of guys’ pecs, they need to be paired with machine guns, not eroticism.

Find out what our projections are for this weekend’s new releases: “Jupiter Ascending,” “Seventh Son,” and “The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.”
