Sorry, James Franco!
While Oz The Great and Powerful is still pulling in all kinds of big box office bucks, its reign in the number one spot has come to an end!
But don’t worry, your new flick with Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens, Spring Breakers, isn’t doing too shabby in its …
Moving in to a new year, “Texas Chainsaw 3D” is on track to take first place at the box office for the weekend of January 4-6, 2013.
The John Luessenhop directed horror film had a Friday take of $ 10.2 million and looks to be headed for a $ 21 million debut weekend in theaters.
Landing in the second spot is the Leonardo DiCaprio-fronted “Django Unchained.” Directed by Quentin Tarantino, the action thriller cashed in at $ 6.2 million on Friday and is headed toward a $ 19.5 million sophomore run.
Rounding out the top five at the box office in pegged earnings are the previously dominant “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” ($ 5.2 million) in third, followed by the musical “Les Miserables” ($ 5 million) in fourth and the family comedy “Parental Guidance” ($ 3.1 million) in fifth.
Your Christmas Day box office:
1. Les Misérables – $ 18.2 million, a Christmas dominated by the powerful singing of Hugh Jackman. I bet his Christmas party was pretty obnoxiously like that, too.
2. Django Unchained – $ 15 million. Tarantino should thank A Christmas Story for breaking down the long-perceived wall separating Christmas and a dude getting his eye shot out.
3. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey – $ 11.3 million. Ticket sales suffered when America was able to convince its parents to see this but couldn’t budge their older sister.
4. Parental Guidance – $ 6.5 million. The popularity of Billy Crystal persists, much like his head of rich, auburn hair.
5. Jack Reacher – $ 5.3 million. Merry Cruisemas.
Even with the release of the much-anticipated Cloud Atlas, it seems that Ben Affleck’s latest directorial effort, Argo, was able to find its way to the top of the weekend box office!
While the ambitious Tom Hanks flick landed third with $ 9.4 million, putting it behind the still-making-bank Hotel Transylvania with …
Topping the competition with ease while posting solid opening numbers, “Hotel Transylvania” is perched atop the box office to begin the weekend of September 28-30, 2012.
The Sony Pictures Animation crafted family comedy, which features the voices of Adam Sandler and Selena Gomez, enjoyed an estimated first day take of $ 11 million while projected to boast debut weekend sales of $ 38.3 million.
Also a theatrical newcomer, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Emily Blunt’s sci-fi thriller “Looper” is off to a fine start with an estimated $ 7 million opening day putting it in line for a three day total of $ 19.7 million.
Filling out the top five at the box office in earmarked earnings are a trio of motion pictures in their second week of release, with third place going to the Clint Eastwood, Justin Timberlake and Amy Adams helmed drama “Trouble with the Curve” ($ 7.1 million), which is outpacing Jennifer Lawrence’s horror/thriller “House At The End Of The Street” ($ 7.0 million) and Jake Gyllenhaal’s crime drama “End of Watch” ($ 6.9 million).
Starting off with a bang thanks to a crushing performance by “The Avengers” at the box office, the summer 2012 movie season now finds itself coming to close on a less than stellar note.
Faring only slightly better than last weekend’s top grossing total of $ 13.5 million, “The Possession” is on track to take the Labor Day weekend (August 31-September 3) top spot – as the Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Kyra Sedgwick starring Lionsgate horror picture’s $ 5.7 million opening day puts it on pace for an estimated four-day total of $ 20.5 million.
Despite boasting an all-star cast including Shia LaBeouf, Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska, fellow cinema newcomer “Lawless” failed to pique the public’s interest, as well, with the John Hillcoat directed drama turning out a $ 2.6 million Friday while lined up to finish the holiday weekend at a paltry $ 12.4 million.
Filling out the top five at the box office in forecasted totals are the Sylvester Stallone , Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jason Statham led action caper “The Expendables 2″ ($ 12 million), followed by the Tony Gilroy directed action/adventure film “The Bourne Legacy” ($ 9.5 million) and LAIKA’s 3D stop-motion comedy thriller “ParaNorman” ($ 10 million).

Finding a newcomer perched atop the pack for the first time in the past month, “The Dark Knight Rises” has been dethroned by “The Bourne Legacy” in the battle for box office supremacy over the weekend of August 10-12, 2012.
The latest installment in the Tony Gilroy directed action/adventure franchise, which stars Jeremy Renner and Rachel Weisz in the leads, garnered an approximate $ 15 million on opening day while taking in an estimated $ 44 million for a first place inaugural weekend finish.
Offering up a more solid than expected second place worthy performance on its opening weekend was runner-up “The Campaign,” as the Will Ferrell/Zach Galifianakis fronted political comedy nabbed $ 11 million on Friday with a predicted three-day cume of $ 27.4 million.
Filling out the top five at the box office in expected totals are last weekend’s three-time chart-topper “The Dark Knight Rises” ($ 19.5 million), followed by the Meryl Streep and Steve Carell helmed theatrical newcomer “Hope Springs” ($ 15.6 million) and the David Bowers directed family comedy “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days” ($ 9 million).
