ROBOCOP 2014 Movie: Full-Fledged Domestic Box Office Bomb

‘RoboCop’ 2014 movie: Full-fledged flop at domestic box office (photo: Joel Kinnaman in ‘RoboCop’ 2014) Directed by José Padilha, and starring Joel Kinnaman and Abbie Cornish, Sony Pictures’ $100 million-budgeted RoboCop 2014 remake opened with disappointing numbers on Wednesday, February 12, 2014. Things improved a bit over the weekend, but there’s no denying that RoboCop 2014 will become a major domestic box office bomb. (See also: José Padilha hates ‘RoboCop’ 2014 filmmaking process.) According to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo, Padilha’s remake of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 "classic" (as mentioned elsewhere on this site, just about anything made before 2003 is considered a classic these days) landed in third place this extended Presidents Day Weekend, February 14-17, trailing both Warner Bros.’ overwhelmingly well-received The…

zac-efron-movies-that-awkward-momentZac Efron movies: ‘That Awkward Moment’ box office disappoints on Super Bowl weekend - though grosses may surpass budget Zac Efron can be seen this weekend, January 31-February 2, 2014, in That Awkward Moment, a romantic comedy directed by Tom Gormican, and co-starring Miles Teller (the star of Sundance 2014 double winner Whiplash), Michael B. Jordan (the star of Sundance 2013 double winner Fruitvale Station), and Imogen Poots. (Photo: Zac Efron in That Awkward Moment.) Released by Focus Features at 2,809 North American locations as a sort of "counter-programming" to the Super Bowl, That Awkward Moment had a disappointing debut on Friday, collecting an estimated $2.94 million, according to estimates found at Box Office Mojo. Chances are things aren’t going to get all that much…

I, FRANKENSTEIN: Aaron Eckhart Reboot Dismal 2014 Box Office Bomb

i-frankenstein-aaron-eckhart-shirtless‘I, Frankenstein’ box office: Frankenstein reboot is second domestic box office bomb of 2014 (photo: buffed up, shirtless Aaron Eckhart in ‘I, Frankenstein’) Made for a reported $65 million (not including marketing and distribution expenses), the Lionsgate-distributed I, Frankenstein is surely not about to become a movie franchise. Directed by Stuart Beattie and starring Aaron Eckhart as the "I" of the title, I, Frankenstein collected a dismal $8.3 million from 2,753 North American theaters this weekend, January 24-26, 2014, according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. The weekend’s only new wide release in the United States and Canada, I, Frankenstein landed in sixth place on the domestic box office chart. I, Frankenstein, in fact, is the second major 2014 domestic box office bomb,…

Box Office Record? History is Remade If Ignoring a Few ‘Minor Details’

2013 domestic box office record: History is made (once again) — if you pretend inflation doesn’t exist (photo: 2013 North American box office no. 1 movie, ‘Iron Man 3,’ with Robert Downey Jr.) Even though Will Ferrell’s comedy Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and the latest Martin Scorsese-Leonardo DiCaprio collaboration, The Wolf of Wall Street, have opened more modestly than expected, while the Justin Bieber concert movie Believe has been totally discredited, the 2013 Christmas and New Year’s season has been quite strong at the domestic box office. According to Variety, figures are up 10% compared to 2012, while the total 2013 box office tally up to December 29 is a mere $1.6 million lower than the $10.837 billion record set last year.

Justin Bieber BELIEVE Bombs: Box Office Dismal, Unfair Comparisons to NEVER SAY NEVER

justin-bieber-believeJustin Bieber ‘Believe’ bombs at North American box office After opening with a dismal $1.25 million at 1,037 North American locations on Christmas Day, the Jon M. Chu-directed Justin Bieber documentary Believe grossed an estimated $2.014 million at no. 14 on the domestic box office chart this weekend, December 27-29, 2013, according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. Believe‘s per-theater average was $1,942, while its five-day cume is an equally paltry $4.27 million. (Photo: Justin Bieber in Believe.) Distributed by Open Road Films, which reportedly spent a modest $5 million promoting the equally modestly budgeted documentary — cost: $4-5 million — Believe will likely disappear from view in the very near future. Justin Bieber concert movies: ‘Believe’ vs. ‘Never Say Never’ Now, comparisons…
