    Awesome - should hit $600M today or tomorrow. Unfortunately, it won't catch Titanic, unless there's a re-release down the road...

    I guess it's safe to say that 2012 is 'the year of the bow, and arrow'. and that even A weak Pixar movie is always better than your average Disney Channel movie.

    They could release a special edition with 27 seconds of additional footage!

    'The Avengers' just hit $600 million!

Including its foreign gross, the movie's worldwide total now sits at an incredible $1.44 billion.
    The Avengers started its remarkable box office run with a record-shattering $207.4 million opening weekend. In a somewhat surprising turn of events, the movie's appeal reached well beyond the fanboy crowd, and it has held incredibly well in its eight weeks in theaters. Its debut currently accounts for 34.6 percent of its gross, which is a lower share than predecessors The Incredible Hulk (41.1 percent), Iron Man 2 (41 percent), Captain America: The First Avenger (36.8 percent) and Thor (36.3 percent).
    The movie now holds 28 records on Box Office Mojo including opening weekend, opening theater average ($47,698) second weekend ($103.05 million), 10-day gross ($373.1 million), and fastest to $500 million (23 days). It currently accounts for over 32 percent of the total grosses for Summer 2012, and it has earned more than the next four movies combined (MIB 3, Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, Snow White and the Huntsman and Prometheus).


    They don't call them 'Earth's Mightiest Heroes' for nothing.

    That's pretty much what Spoony said in his vlog review. Yeah, Kristen Stewart in in this one, and she's pretty much what you'd expect as far as acting goes, (Which isn't saying much.) but Chris Hemsworth, and Charlize Theron kinda make up for it.

    Spiderman makes $140 million through this Sunday.

    hollywoodreporter.com:

    Box Office Report: 'Spider-Man' Reboots Franchise With $140 Mil; Worldwide Total $341 Mil

    Oliver Stone's "Savages" climbs to No. 4 with better-than-expected $16.2 million, "Katy Perry: Part of Me" trails fellow concert docs with soft $10.3 million; "Ted" is R-rated comedy hit of summer, earning $120.2 million in first 10 days.


    Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-Man spun a strong enough web in its worldwide debut to ensure a new future for Sony's marquee franchise, including a six-day domestic opening of $140 million.

    Worldwide, the 3D reboot has earned $341.2 million in its first week.

    Domestically, Amazing Spider-Man -- headlining Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone -- turned in the best performance for the July 4th frame outside of the three Transformers pics, Twlight Saga: The Eclipse and Spider-Man 2. And among reboots, it easily bested the $79.5 million earned by Batman Begins in its first six days, including a three-day opening of $48.7 million.

    Opening Tuesday in North America, Amazing Spider-Man grossed $65 for the weekend itself, the third best three-day number of summer outside of The Avengers and Brave. Amazing Spider-Man was up 15 percent from Friday to Saturday, indicating that the event pic is playing like a family film.

    Overall, 75 percent of the audience were general movigoers ages 12 and up, while 25 percent were familes. Amazing Spider-Man skewed male (58 percent), while 65 percent of children were boys. The pic received an overall A- CinemaScore, and an A among moviegoers under the age of 25.

    What a spectacular relaunch," Sony worldwide president of distribution Rory Bruer said. "There are so many facets of this movie that are compelling, including the chemistry between Andrew and Emma and the out-of-the-box direction of Marc Webb."

    Imax locations turned in a hefty $14.3 million, 10 percent of the domestic total. Imax should finish the weekend with a global Spider-Man gross north of $24 million.

    With Amazing Spider-Man taking up much of the oxygen at the multiplex, the weekend brought mixed results for new entries Savages, Oliver Stone R-rated crime drama, and concert documentary Katy Perry: Part of Me.

    Savages did better than expected, grossing $16.2 million to come in No. 4 behind Amazing Spider-Man, Ted and Pixar/Disney's Brave. One complication: Savages may have had to compete with fellow Universal pic Ted for adults, even though they are very different movies.

    Ted, financed by Media Rights Capital and directed by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, has blossomed into the comedy hit of the summer, falling only 40 percent in its second weekend to $32.6 million for a 10-day domestic cume of $120.2 million.

    Ted is really doing well, did not expect that to happen.

    Glad Spiderman and Brave are doing well, Spider-Man seems to have done well for itself after the horrible feeling SM3 left with a lot of people. Brave is on pace to easily move past CARS2 and Ratatouille for another $200m+ bow despite people fearing otherwise before it premiered

    This makes me happy. Savages was easily my top book for 2011. Now I just need to see if the movie does it justice.

    Glad to see TDKR did so well despite the tragic events. I'm sure it would have been over $200Mil had those events not transpired.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    The Expendables 2 wins the box office for the weekend of 8/17-8/19, but makes less than the first one. I wonder how much the bomb scare affected the box office. The Dark Knight goes over $400 million in the domestic box office.

    1 The Expendables 2 $28,750,000
    2 The Bourne Legacy $17,020,000 ($69,581,000)
    3 ParaNorman $14,008,000
    4 The Campaign $13,385,000 ($51,694,000)
    5 Sparkle $12,000,000
    6 The Dark Knight Rises $11,140,000 ($409,916,000)
    7 The Odd Life of Timothy Green $10,909,000 ($15,187,000)
    8 Hope Springs $9,100,000 ($35,051,000)
    9 Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days $3,850,000 ($38,762,000)
    10 Total Recall $3,500,000 ($51,782,000)

    The Odd Life of Timothy Green performed as well as I expected, which was not well at all. Poor Jennifer Garner.

    I saw Wreck-It Ralph last weekend and enjoyed it.

    The last Twilight movie wins this weekend as expected, while Bond comes in second.

    hollywoodreporter.com:

    The final film in the blockbuster vampire series scores a franchise-best worldwide opening; Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" expands nationwide with a pleasing $21 million.

    Proving that females can fuel an event franchise, Summit Entertainment's Twilight vampire series is going out in high style.

    Twilight: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2 topped the worldwide weekend box office with $340.9 million opening, including $141.3 million domestically from 4,070 theaters and $199.6 million internationally from 61 markets. It's the franchise's best global opening, thanks to massive international business.

    In North America, Breaking Dawn 2 wasn't able to match the $142.8 million opening of New Moon on the same weekend in 2009, but it did open ahead of the $138.1 million grossed by Breaking Dawn -- Part 1 on the same weekend last year, thanks in part to especially strong Saturday traffic and an A CinemaScore.

    Overseas, Breaking Dawn 2 opened well ahead of previous Twilight films in nearly every territory.

    Directed by Bill Condon, Breaking Dawn 2 returns Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner in the lead roles for a final time. The Twilight franchise put Summit on the map and has been a resounding victory for all involved. Breaking Dawn 2 has pushed Lionsgate, which merged with Summit this year, past the $1 billion mark in ticket sales for the first time.

    Breaking Dawn 2 drew more males than any previous title in the series, who made up 21 percent of those buying tickets. In terms of age, 50 percent of the audience was 25 years and older, reflecting the aging fanbase.

    In other box-office news, Sam Mendes' Skyfall finished the weekend with a worldwide total of $669.2 million to become the top-grossing James Bond pic of all time.

    Skyfall, starring Daniel Craig, grossed a stellar $41.5 million in its second weekend domestically and pushed its North American total to $161.3 million. Overseas, the film has earned a massive $507.9 million for partners MGM, Eon Productions and Sony.

    Steven Spielberg's awards contender Lincoln also made headlines as it expanded nationwide. The historical drama took in a strong $21 million from 1,775 theaters for a location average of $11,831. Lincoln, which opened in a handful of markets the previous weekend, has taken in a total of $22.4 million.

    The DreamWorks film, made in association with Participant Media and distributed by Disney domestically, came in No. 3, despite its modest screen count. Lincoln stars Daniel Day-Lewis as the iconic 16th president. Fox co-financed Lincoln and is handling the film internationally.

    Lincoln is doing particularly well on both coasts and will up its theater count to 2,000 locations Wednesday in time for the long Thanksgiving holiday.

    i saw cloud atlas with my wife. if you go to movies not to think, this is not for you. it was amazing. and i felt like i was reading a book. a bit boring at points, but the boring points were justified by what was coming next.


    very very impressed with it.

    ps. took the kids to Wreck it Ralph, and had a blast as well..

    When a 'Twilight' movie does a better job poking fun at 'Twilight' than 'Vampires Suck', you know something is wrong. So i don't know weather to laugh, or cry.
