Tuesday Box Office Report

1 min read

It may be a day late, but that just means that more moolah circulated through Hollywood, this past American non-public holiday long weekend! Four new films debuted, including cop drama End of Watch, the future lawman Dredd arrived on scene and was joined by Trouble with the curve and a House at the end of the street. Who came out on top?

Despite some underwhelming total figures, the race for number one was a tight finish indeed. End of Watch claimed the top sopt, followed closely by Trouble with the curve and House at the end of the street, while future law enforcer Judge Dredd landed disappointingly in the sixth spot on the top ten charts.

As for everyone else, here’s a look at who made what at the North American box office.

  • End of Watch – $13.1 Million
  • Trouble with the curve – $12.2 Million
  • House at the end of the street – $12.1 Million
  • Finding Nemo 3D – $9.6 Million
  • Resident Evil Retribution – $6.7 Million
  • Dredd – $6.2 Million
  • The Master – $4.3 Million
  • The Possession – $2.6 Million
  • ParaNorman – $2.3 Million
  • Lawless – $2.2 Million

The Bourne Legacy, The Expendables 2 and The Campaign saw a drop for the top ten, while The Master added in some more screens, bumping itself up from 19th to seventh place overall.

Still, bad news for Dredd though. Despite strong word of mouth, reviews and love from the comic book community, it looks like this film is on track to make less cash than the version which starred Sylvester Stallone, and that other guy…Rob Schneider.

Hopefully, DVD sales will pick it up once again, alongside a strong foreign market.

    That is disappointing. But I’ll still go watch Dredd.

    I think you’re right and Dredd will pick up in the foreign market and DVD sales. Well at least I hope so. Alex Garland already has the sequels mapped out.

      There is one upside. The movie was quite cheap and a good run will see it more likely to get a nod for a sequel.

        True, but it’s still going to need to crack around $100 million to be considered profitable, and most likely double that before any sequels pop up.

          Not necessarily – it’s not a tentpole movie, so if it can reach $75 million I think it has a good chance. Also, Lionsgate tends to understand the business of DVD. If it gets good traction there, a sequel will also be on the cards.
