Posession holds the top spot Weekend Box Office Wrap Up: September 9, 2012

It’s unbelievable that a shocker like The Possession should hold the box office top spot for two weeks in a row, but that seems to be the case, grossing $9.5 million for a $33.3 million total. That’s a great number for the Sam Raimi produced film, which cost less than $15 million to make, so it’s already in profit.

Lawless stabilized after last weekend’s disappointing debut. It should dip around 40%, grossing $6 million for a $23.5 million total. The Shia LaBeouf /Tom Hardy film should end up with a decent, if unimpressive final gross.

Bradley Cooper’s The Words (read our review) had a lacklustre debut, grossing a measly $5 million. It won’t be around for much longer. It shows that maybe Bradley Cooper doesn’t have as much star-wattage as studios think. Solace should be taken in the knowledge that the film has a production budget of just $6 million.

The Expendables 2 should shoot-up another $4.7 million for a $75 million haul – that’s a decent number but it will never hit $100 million. The action film is now closing in on $200 million worldwide.

The Bourne Legacy should finally cross $100 million, grossing $4 million for a $103.7 million total. The film won’t match its $125 million production budget at the domestic box office, but it should be profitable enough once international ticket sales are taken into account.

ParaNorman is holding up quite well, a weekend gross of $3.8 million should see the animated adventure raise its cume to $45 million.

The Odd Life Of Timothy Green should bank another $3.6 million worth of green, a number which would bring its total to just over $43 million.

Another $3.5 million would see The Campaign raise its gross to $79.4 million, a great number – but a good domestic gross is necessary for this political comedy, as the subject matter won’t sell well abroad.

A weekend gross of $3.2 million would see The Dark Knight Rises raise its gross to a powerful $437.8 million. Globally the film has grossed over $1 billion, surpassing The Dark Knight’s worldwide take in the process. It will soon surpass Shrek 2 as the seventh highest grossing film at the domestic box office and it will soon find a home in the top ten list of highest grossing films worldwide.

 2016 Obama’s America looks set to gross an additional $3.2 million, bringing its cume to $26 million. It’s shaping-up to be one of the highest grossing documentaries of all time.

Cold Light Of Day has poor debut2 Weekend Box Office Wrap Up: September 9, 2012

The Bruce Willis/Henry Cavill thriller Cold Light Of Day had a woeful debut outside of the top ten. The thriller should gross just $1.8 million from a little over 1500 locations, making it the lowest grossing wide release of Willis’ career. The film has also landed just $13 million via international markets.

Meanwhile, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas’ Indiana Jones adventure,  Raiders Of The Lost Ark looks set to gross $1.1 million from 267 IMAX screens.

That’s it for now. See you at the movies.

  1. best comic book movie year

    • Hardly…

      All of 3 were dissapointing for me.

      I think 2013 is gonna rock: Man of Steel, Iron Man 3, maybe a good Wolverine at last, Thor:TDW

      Let’s hope the world is gonna end.

      • not gonna

  2. Wow you have to hope after reading these reviews of ‘The Cold Light of Day’ that Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill had better had an Epiphany while making ‘Man of Steel,’ otherwise WB may have to sack the whole DC to screen idea as their new money stream…



    • OK after thinking about that, perhaps a little too much hyperbole, however could Henry Cavill get away with a flat, read, characterless Superman? I come across these reviews and realize if the script or the director is a little off the game this could really hurt the whole DC line. Remembering Chris Reeves in the worst of the Superman movies he did he still had the Superman charisma. If that’s missing the movie could really falter and that could be bad, really bad…

  3. ‘Cold Light Of Day’, haven’t heard anything about this.

    • Good don’t watch it. It was TERRIBLE, in all caps.

    • I haven’t heard about it either… which is odd if you look at the cast: Bruce Willis, Henry Cavil AND Sigourney Weaver!

      But I won’t be seeing this in theaters though, and looking at the reviews it’s been getting, I’m not sure about a rental viewing either…
      I’ll wait till it hits TV.

  4. The film won’t match its $125 million production budget at the domestic box office, but it should be profitable enough once international ticket sales are taken into account.
