September 20-23, 2012 Box Office Returns



Jake Gyllenhaal is back on top of the Box Office this year after winning the weekend at box office with his new film End of Watch.



Early Box Office Returns Puts Jennifer Lawrence Back On Top Of The Box Office, The Top Ten

UPDATE — SUNDAY 5:56AM: As I mentioned yesterday, it’s anyone’s BOX Office Game To Take. Trouble with the Curve won Saturday with $5.5 million dollars and is now projecting a $13.2 million dollar weekend. However House at the End of the Street and Jennifer Lawrence are right there, racking in $5.4 million dollars on Saturday. The kicker? House at the End of the Street made $4.6 million on Friday to Trouble with the Curves $4.1 million. So, for the moment, House at the End of the Street is still in the lead. Meanwhile, End of Watch made only slightly less then the two films already mentioned. The Jake Gyllenhaal drama made $5.3 million on Saturday and is now projecting a $13.2 million dollar weekend like the other two films vying for the top spot.  That leaves Sunday to figure this whole Box Office thing out. All three films are neck and neck, and so which ever film wins Sunday, will win this weekends Box Office gold.



SATURDAY POST: House At The End Of The Street took home $4.6 million dollars last night and won Friday at the Box Office. For a film with a production budget of only $10 million dollars, that ain’t bad. Still, The House at the End of the Street could be surpassed by a couple of films by the end of the weekend.


End of Watch starring Jake Gyllenhaal is on Jennifer Lawrence and her horror flicks heels. End of Watch pulled in $4.5 million dollars on Friday night, but is projecting a $13.5 million dollar weekend. Meanwhile, House at the End of the Street is projecting a $12.3 million dollar weekend.


Trouble with The Curve’s Box Office numbers may coincide with Clint Eastwood strange convention chair routine. He looked like a clown, and turned off people from the left and the right by being a bit too callus with The President of the United States. Love him or hate him, but respect the office — this is our country. The  film did $4.3 million dollars on Friday night and is project to finish second behind End of Watch, which would put House at the End of the Street in 3rd. I think the projections for Trouble with the Curve are a bit bullish however, so don’t count on that. Jennifer Lawrence could still pull it out.


The saddest news of the weekend comes from Lionsgate. Dredd 3D flopped, big time. The comic book adaptation made a meek $2.2 million dollars on Friday and is projecting a puny $5.7 million dollar weekend. Don’t look for the sequel folks, it’s not going to happen. The film couldn’t even beat out Finding Memo 3D in its second week, a film that has been on DVD for ten years.
