Box Office Predictions (08-10th Nov) Results

Real shocking results this weekend. Thor The Dark World won the weekend! With practically no competition yeah that obviously happened and really this is why I don’t do the prediction past summer because even I am bored. Go watch some movies!


Returning Films

Can’t forget about are returning films as well. Ender’s Game may have won last weekend but wow did this drop like a led brick this weekend, 62% drop to $10M. Bad Grandpa may have dropped more than I thought but still came up 2nd place next to Thor 2. Gravity is still holding on and within hugging distance to Ender’s Game.

New Films

Thor: The Dark World



Slightly under what some predicted but still an excellent result for Thor 2, $86M this weekend. That number is a 31% jump on Thor 1 (win) granted Iron Man 3 gave a 36% jump but were not going to compare this too much. Now I thought this film would get more of an female audience than most superhero films alas the audience was 62% male. Thor smash! Internationally though this film is smashing its past numers and has nearly made its international earnings in two weeks.

My Prediction

  1. Thor: The Dark World:   -$92M
  2. Bad Grandpa:   -$14M
  3. Ender’s Game:   -$12M
  4. Last Vegas:   -$11M
  5. Free Birds:   -$10M
  6. Gravity:   -$9M
  7. Captain Phillips:   -$6M
  8. 12 Years a Slave:   -$3M
  9. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2:  -$2M
  10. The Counselor:   -$2M

Actual Results

  1. Thor: The Dark World:   -$86.1M (-5.9M)
  2. Bad Grandpa:   -$11.3M (-2.7M)
  3. Free Birds:   -$11.2M (+0.8M)
  4. Last Vegas:   -$11.1M (+0.1M)
  5. Ender’s Game:   -$10.2M (-1.8M)
  6. Gravity:   -$8.4M (-0.6M)
  7. 12 Years a Slave:   -$6.6M (+3.6M)
  8. Captain Phillips:   -$5.8M (-0.2M)
  9. About Time:   -$5.1M (N/A)

    I was disappointed with Thor 1 so I wouldn’t think 2 would do so good. Good call, a lot of peeps are saying this one is excellent and should have been the first, so I want to see it now.


  2. The Celtic Predator says :

    Yeah, we’re really getting into Oscar nominee territory here. My guess is ’12 Years a Slave,’ ‘Enough Said,’ and ‘Blue is the Warmest Color’ will be getting some important nods soon.


  3. sidekickreviews says :

    Pretty good with your Thor prediction 🙂


  4. ReasonableCritic says :

    I’m happy for Thor 2, which looks terrific and will be the next film I see. But Ender’s Game, Ender’s Game, what happened? It’s my favorite sci-fi novel, and the film was better and MUCH more faithful than I could have hoped for. It deserves to be seen, but with an overcrowded season and a bad marketing campaign, I guess it never stood a chance. Here’s hoping it’s appreciated in time.


  5. Tom says :

    Nice numbers!!! You’re pretty accurate here, I am surprised to see Free Birds even doing this well. I’ve heard nothing but crap things about it. Great to see Gravity still. . .clinging on to dear life. 🙂


  6. ruth says :

    I think I predicted between $70 to $80 right, so we’re both off by about $5 mil. That’s a pretty good number, though of course, hard to beat Iron Man’s stellar box office prowess!
