The Grinch has officially dethroned Home Alone to become the highest grossing Christmas movie of all-time. Illumination's take on the Dr. Seuss classic has earned $500.5 million at the worldwide box office since debuting in theaters back in November, beating Home Alone, which only took in $476.6 million globally. The Grinch is still in theaters, though it has dropped from the box office top ten, where it stayed for over a month, sparring with Wreck-It Ralph 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. While The Grinch has beaten Home Alone on the worldwide stage, it still has a ways to go before beating the 1990 movie domestically. Macaulay Culkin's Christmas movie was able to earn $285.7 million, while Illumination's latest project is currently at $269.8 million. Now that the holiday season has passed, it seems highly unlikely that The Grinch will be able to cover another $16 million to overtake the nearly 30-year old Christmas classic. However, Illumination has created a modern holiday … [Read more...] about The Grinch Overtakes Home Alone as Biggest Christmas Movie of All Time

The proof in that is The Great Rupert and Little Shop of Horrors are both missing.

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation had no problem taking down Dwayne Johnson's Skyscraper at the box office this weekend, earning $44.1 million to take the top spot. Johnson's latest action thriller represents the lowest opening for the actor in recent years, earning $25 million, which put the film in third place behind Ant-Man and the Wasp. Skyscraper came in lower than what was initially projected by the studio, who shelled out $125 to get it made. It opened with another $40.4 million overseas, but has yet to premiere in China, which is where the movie was filmed. Adam Sandler's Hotel Transylvania 3 was the big winner this weekend, earning $44.1 million domestically and taking the number one spot. Additionally, the animated family comedy took in another $54.8 million overseas, which was enough to take down Skyscraper globally as well. It's also important to note that this is the first summer opening for a Hotel Transylvania film, which makes the feat even more impressive. The … [Read more...] about Hotel Transylvania 3 Demolishes The Rock’s Skyscraper at the Box Office
It's going to be a tight race at the box office this weekend. Ant-Man and the Wasp finally managed to take down Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom last weekend, but with both Skyscraper and Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation opening up this week, there could be a new champion in town. The real question is, can Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson muster enough of his box office charm to overcome Marvel and the ending to the family-friendly Hotel Transylvania trilogy? Ant-Man and the Wasp debuted with $75.8 million at the box office over the weekend. Positive buzz could help keep it in the top spot, but it's going to be very close. Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation is currently tracking just shy of $40 million on the low side and optimistically at $45 million. With Incredibles 2 still chugging away, looking to bring in another $13 to $14 million this weekend, that could take a bite out of Adam Sandler's animated vampire comedy. If Ant-Man and the Wasp can avoid a huge drop, it should be able to … [Read more...] about Can Ant-Man 2 Topple The Rock’s Skyscraper at the Box Office?
Ant-Man and the Wasp buzz into first! Marvel's smallest heroes had a sizeable opening weekend as ANT-MAN AND THE WASP premiered on top at the box office with an estimated $76 million! Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly's diminutive duo got a stronger start than ANT-MAN's solo debut, which opened with $57.2 million in 2015 before finishing with $180.2 million domestic and $519 million worldwide. But the pair and their shrinking/growing exploits couldn't compare to Marvel's other offerings of 2018 -- BLACK PANTHER started with a staggering $202 million in February and the all-star AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR had a record-crushing $257 million first weekend. Director Peyton Reed's second time around with the Pym-powered protagonists also flew away with $85 million from international audiences for a worldwide opening of $161 million (the PG-13 action-comedy cost a reported $160 million). Critics were happy for some upbeat costumed antics after the devastation of INFINITY WAR, giving the sequel an … [Read more...] about Weekend Box Office Report: July 6-8, 2018
