Weekend Box Office: Aug 7-9, 2015 @ Infinispace.net

The news this weekend isn’t so much that Rogue Nation retained the top spot, but that the Marvel Universe, this time in the form of another Fantastic Four reboot, is not a guaranteed box office juggernaut.  Especially when in the hands of Fox, and double when not in the hands of Josh Trank …

Weekend Box Office: July 24-26, 2015 @ Infinispace.net

Another weekend, another truck load of money for Disney.  Ant-Man isn’t burning up the box office like most Disney/Marvel offerings, but it’s doing respectable business, grossing $25 million this weekend, with a $226 million global total so far.
The Adam Sandler starred Pixels also …

Weekend Box Office: May 15-17, 2015 @ Infinispace.net

Mad Max: Fury Road opened this weekend to universal critical and fan reception, chalking up a 98% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.com.  That’s unheard of for a movie that has little dialogue and non-stop brutal action.  Did it come in first at the box office?  Nope.  It was beat out by Pit…

Weekend Box Office: May 8-10, 2015 @ Infinispace.net

Another weekend, another $77 million.  Avengers: Age of Ultron open in China on Tuesday and should shatter the $1 billion mark later this week.  Ultron broke the $300 million threshold in ten days, tying The Dark Knight‘s pace to that mark.  The Avengers, which holds the title as the fastest to c…

Weekend Box Office: Apr 24-26, 2015 @ Infinispace.net

No surprises this weekend, just like there will be no surprises next weekend when Avengers: Age of Ultron absolutely destroys Furious 7 and knocks it from the top of the box office hill hill.
Furious 7 has surpassed $1.3 billion gross, which is absolutely shocking (well, not really) for such a …

Weekend Box Office: Apr 17-19, 2015 @ Infinispace.net

Science fiction and speculative fiction is, once again, criminally underrepresented in the weekend box office.  Furious 7 has been dominating the box office for a couple weeks now, and only The Divergent Series: Insurgent represents the science fiction/dystopia genres, and Unfriended represents …
