Weekend Box Office: Zach Braff And Demi Lovato Duke It Out For Third Place Dreamworks Animation After a monstrous March that saw five movies open with more than $40 million (including the $175 million opening of Beauty and the Beast), April got off to an unremarkable start, and with the exception of next week’s The Fate and the Furious, it’s likely to remain that way until the first weekend of May when Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens. The race for first place this weekend was between two holdovers — last week’s number one movie, The Boss Baby, and the number one film the two weeks prior to it, Beauty and the Beast.

Box Office Prediction – The Boss Baby vs. Smurfs: The Lost Village Welcome to the Screen Rant Box Office Prediction. Every week we put together an informal list of box office picks for the upcoming weekend to offer readers a rough estimate of how new releases (and returning holdovers) will perform in theaters. For a recap of last week’s box office totals, read our box office wrap-up from Ghost in the Shell‘s opening weekend, and scroll to the bottom of this post to see how our picks matched up. Full disclosure: Box office predictions are not an exact science. We acknowledge our picks may not always be correct.

Release dates are sometimes more interesting than their movies.The simple answer for how a movie like The Boss Baby opens at number one is that it’s a major studio animated feature debuting in late March. Specific to this movie, however, there are certain special circumstances, like Beauty and the Beast finally dropping enough to give something else a shot and Ghost in the Shell being a flop, possibly due to its whitewashing casting controversy and possibly just due to its just not being very good.March is a tricky month for movie releases.

Weekend Box Office Report: March 31-April 2, 2017 The Boss Baby takes charge! Animated infant Alec Baldwin seized control of the box office this weekend as THE BOSS BABY opened with an estimated $49 million! The PG-rated family comedy (adapted from the childrens' book of the same name) was about average for the first weekend of a non-SHREK Dreamworks effort, right between the $47.6 million start of KUNG FU PANDA 2 and the $49.4 million...

‘The Boss Baby’ Bounces to No. 1 With $15.5 Million Opening at Friday Box Office Fox/DreamWorks Animation’s “The Boss Baby” has become a surprise No. 1 success at the box office, riding robust advance ticket sales to claim the top spot from “Beauty and the Beast” with a $15.5 million opening Friday from 3,773 screens. That strong opening has drastically pushed opening weekend estimates to the low 50s for the Alec Baldwin-fronted family film. A total in that range would put it in the same neighborhood as the $52.1 million opening enjoyed by DreamWorks’ “Home” in the same release date spot back in 2015.

‘Rogue One’ Controls Christmas Box Office With $140 Million Estimates Box office experts knew “Rogue One” would stay on top at the box office, but its dominating margin above the competition is something to behold on Christmas Day. The “Star Wars” prequel starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen and Riz Ahmed is now expected to end its second weekend with nearly $140 million over the six-day holiday. The Lucasfilm hit should make more than $80 million over Christmas Sunday and on Monday alone, when moviegoers are expected to surge theaters.

‘Rogue One’ Soars Over Box Office Competition With $22.8 Million Friday The Force is still with “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” as it zoomed past a crowded field of challengers to maintain its number one spot on the Friday box office. Disney and Lucasfilm’s “Star Wars” spinoff featuring a cast including Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen and Riz Ahmed hauled in $22.8 million across 4,157 theaters on Friday. “Rogue One,” which follows Gyn Erso (Jones) on a journey to receive her father’s plans for destroying the Death Star, a superweapon used by the Galactic Empire, has made $244.8 million at the d

Rogue One Passes $200 Million at Domestic Box Office Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is on quite a roll, opening to a hefty $155 million domestic gross during its debut weekend, which is the second best December opening of all time (the first spot belongs to 2015’s Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens). Rogue One is also expected to take the number one spot again this upcoming weekend despite the incoming wave of competition, like Illumination’s Sing, video game adaptation Assassin’s Creed, as well as Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence’s original science fiction film Passengers. As if to solidify its projected se

Assassin's Creed is the best film adaptation of a video game we've ever seen. Granted, that's not exactly a huge wall to scale. The world of video games adapted to the big screen has had more valleys than peaks, and problematic films like Silent Hill and Resident Evil are considered the best this brand of movie making has to offer. Cult status has been kind to movies like Super Mario Bros. and Mortal Kombat in recent years, but even those fall into the category of fun rather than good. Leave it to a filmmaker like Justin Kurzel (of Snowtown and Macbeth) to show how it's done.
