    ‘Wonder Woman’ Powers Warner Bros. To Lead All Studios At Lackluster Summer B.O.

    Warner Bros. gets bragging rights for leading all major studios at the summer box office with $790M , fueled by DC’s  Wonder Woman,  Christopher Nolan’s  Dunkirk  and New Line horror film  Annabelle: Creation.  After getting beaten up by film reviewers last year for its DC titles  Superman v. Batman: Dawn of Justice  and  Suicide Squad,  WB proved that it could deliver a product that was equally a commercial success and critically acclaimed. We always knew that women went to the…

    ‘Get Out’ Is 2017’s Most Profitable Film So Far

    Jordan Peele’s racism-horror masterpiece “Get Out” has had the best return on investment of any film of 2017 — a spectacular 630 percent. Deep into summer, only one other film this year has come close to that kind of return — and it’s from Blumhouse, the same production company that delivered “Get Out.” M. Night Shyamalan‘s “Split” had a 610 percent ROI. TheWrap calculated an estimate for the combined production budget and marketing costs for the top 25 grossing films this year so far, and Blumhouse founder and CEO Jason Blum’s strategy of taking creative risks within tight budgets is paying off.

    3 Reasons ‘Valerian’ Failed to Launch at the Box Office

    While “Dunkirk” and “Girls Trip” found success at the box office, “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” did not. EuropaCorp, which is owned by Besson, won’t take a big financial hit, as it brought in outside investors and sold distribution rights to mitigate the cost of the blockbuster, but it will have to rely on overseas markets to find profits, as U.S. audiences have largely rejected the film with a B- CinemaScore rating and a 54 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes. From both a critical and marketing standpoint, Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne seemed to be the wrong pair to cast in the lead roles of space agents Valerian and Laureline.

At a press conference Friday to open the second annual BRICS International Film Festival in the Chinese city of Chengdu, Zhang Hongsen, the deputy director of the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television of the People’s Republic of China, which oversees — and censors — all films and television programs shown in the country, told attendees that China now has more than 45,000 movie screens, more than any other market, according to Chinese film website Mtime. The festival celebrates filmmakers from Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.

    Underlining Ben Affleck’s star power, The Accountant dominated moviegoing with a solid $24.7 million opening weekend at 3,222 North American sites. Sunday’s estimate came in significantly above expectations, which had ranged from $18 million to $20 million at the start of the weekend.

    From 'Dory' to Snore-y: Our Midseason Summer Box-Office Report

    ‘Finding Dory’ is still one of the hottest tickets of the summer (Photo: Disney/Pixar) We’re in the lazy days of summer, and that sluggishness extends all the way to the ticket booth. As the Fourth of July weekend approaches, it’s apparent that the 2016 summer movie season is off to a slow start, with tons of underachieving sequels and a few hits that seem almost obligatory (what, like you’re going to miss a Pixar or Avengers film?). As of mid-June, the summer box office was down 22 percent from last year, though Finding Dory has recently given that number a boost. In a sense, the tone for the whole year was set by March’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which brought in a ton of dough but little audience enthusiasm.

    2015's Biggest Winners at the Box Office

    To the delight of studios and fans alike, 2015 was the year that audiences decided to go back to the movies. Films like Jurassic World and Star Wars: The Force Awakens became full-blown cinematic events, attracting massive crowds and shattering box-office records. This week, industry analysts confidently declared that domestic box office would surpass $11 billion by the end of the year , an all-time high. While tentpole films made waves, it was also a good year for low-budget cult movies and limited-release Oscar contenders, as well as demographics that have often been underrepresented in Hollywood (like films starring African-American characters and/or female protagonists). Click through for a sampling of 2015’s biggest box-office winners. (Stay tuned for tomorrow for a roundup of the biggest losers.)

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens Becomes Fastest Ever Film To Make $1 Billion

    It was as inevitable as eating too much turkey on Christmas Day, and now ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ has passed the $1 billion mark. It took the J.J. Abrams film just 12 days to do so, beating the previous record - set by this year’s ‘Jurassic World’ - to become the fastest ever film to take a billion at the box office. While it’s hard to compare the popularity of the ‘Star Wars’ franchise to that of ‘Jurassic Park’s’ it’s perhaps more impressive that the space adventure has done it without having been released in China - a boost that aided ‘Jurassic World’s’ huge, quick success.

    ‘Star Wars’ On Pace to Overtake ‘Avatar’ as All-Time Box Office Champ

    “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is on pace to overtake Jim Cameron’s “Avatar” as the highest-grossing film of all time globally, just four days after it opened in the U.S. and most of the world. On Monday, the film’s $40 million haul put an exclamation point on an incredible opening weekend, in which it shattered records with the biggest domestic, foreign and worldwide openings. The monster debut by the hugely anticipated space opera erases any doubt that the 2015 domestic box office will be the biggest in history at over $11 billion, and Rentrak revised its estimates for the year to reflect that on Tuesday.
