Box Office Blitz Week 12!

We're just about to the halfway point.  If you didn't read Tuesday's post (or all of Tuesday's post) you might not have noticed that there
was a change last week in who won the round once the final results were in.  Here now is the updated scoreboard, which helps both Dilloways as Chris takes sole possession of 2nd place and inches closer to Rusty while I remain within striking distance of fourth place.  Which really means nothing.

Box Office Blitz


11 Total
1 Rusty Carl 500 7300
2 Chris Dilloway 1200 6800
3 David Walton 900 6500
4 Andrew Leon 900 5000
5 PT Dilloway 500 4900
6 Maurice Mitchell 600 4600
7 Briane Pagel 300 4300
8 Michael Offutt 500 2800

5400 42200

BTW, last week I noted there were at least 8 second movies in a series this year.  It occurs to me that this week we have "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2" while in November there's Thor 2 and Hunger Games 2, plus The Hobbit 2 later on.  Year of the deuce!

And now here's the list from my local megaplex (* denotes a new release):
  • 2 Guns  
  • Baggage Claim*
  • Battle of the Year
  • Blue Jasmine
  • Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2*
  • Don Jon*
  • Elysium 
  • Generation Iron
  • Insidious 2 
  • Instructions Not Included 
  • Lee Daniels' The Butler
  • One Direction: This is Us
  • Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters
  • Prisoners
  • Riddick 
  • Rush*
  • The Family
  • The Wolverine
  • The World's End
  • We're the Millers
With no other kid's movies really in the theater right now I suppose I'll go with:
  1. Cloudy...Meatballs 2 $40M
  2. Rush $15M
  3. Don Jon $10M

Now you make your picks in the comments!


  1. Cloudy 2 - $45 mil
    Prisoners - $15 mil
    Rush - $12 mil

  2. Cloudy 2 - $47 million
    Rush - $13.2 million
    Don Jon - $12 million -- a JGL fan so I'll be there to watch his body. :) I can't wait.

  3. 1. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 $46M
    2. Prisoners $13M
    3. Don Jon $10

  4. So it's me and Michael for the Sacko? I should say "Cloudy 2, $47,000,001!" But I think Rush will do better, maybe? On the one hand it has the Hemsworth who DIDN'T dump Miley Cyrus, but on the other hand it looks superboring. Isn't it Englishmen racing? Do the Brits have NASCAR? I would find that as shocking as Alabama Crimson Tide fans eating crumpets. I wonder what a crumpet is?

    I digress.

    Rush: $25 mil.
    Cloudy 2: $20 mil.
    Baggage Claim $15 mil.

    Baggage Claim looks stupid, but, then most romantic comedies do, these days. As for "Cloudy," I'm not sure the first one was ever that big a hit, was it? I'm going to go check that out.

  5. OK, it was released almost exactly 4 years ago and got $30,000,000 opening, It beat "The Informant," "Jennifer's Body," and something called "Love Happens" that weekend, taking in more than those three combined. But I'm going to stick by my picks. A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds. WAIT, I don't think Emerson meant that as a compliment...

  6. There just isn't anything out there right now that I'm interested in seeing. I guess I'll wait for the winter releases.

  7. Hmm...
    All the good numbers are taken. I guess that's what I get for being late.
    1. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2: $44m
    2. Rush: $14m
    3. Prisoners: $11m

  8. This could be the year of the deuce Pat! My son and loved CwCM mainly because it was my favorite book as a kid. Nothing like the movie, but still good. I'm betting kids and Jackman fans will rule.

    1.Cloudy 2 - $43 mil
    2. Prisoners - $13 mil
    3. Rush - $12 mil

  9. Meatballs 2 $35
    Rush $12
    Prisoners $11

    Apparently my post didn't get posted yesterday. Been having issues posting on here from this account. I think my school email is messing up my regular account. I think we all can get #1 right, but the rest...I have no idea...
