    I imagine this new TMNT movie will be on the same level of the first Bay produced movie, if not lower. Honestly the latest ads did cut a lot of the buzz this movie had earlier in the year and honestly the fact there hasn't been reviews yet of the movie (well a few but not enough for a rotten tomaotes score and even the few that are out there aren't positive) kind of show the studios don't have the highest confidence in the brand. Granted sometimes said confidence can backfire as X-Men Apocalypse splitting down the middle probably weakend it's box office but honestly I'm thinking this movie will do... 60-70 million at best next weekend. Obviously clearing over Popstar and Me Before You but not setting records or anything. Though if it does as well as the original that would still be a success so guess we'll see in a few days if it can achieve that.

    True, and it's obvious that Disney with scheduling it during that Thanksgiving season would want it to be a Frozen style hit. But there hasn't been any traction be it that positive or negative on the movie yet to know how it will play out. Especially because thankfully it seems we are in a period where movies only have an incredible amount of staying power if they wind up having really high reviews and get a lot of positive buzz, especially for those who aren't based on existing franchises. I would have to see good word of mouth from Moana before I expected said film to be a hit but it's a possible contender at least. But remember how Pixar was riding high last year with Inside Out... then sort of tumbled with The Good Dinosaur so we'll see if that will be a case with this movie and what not.

    As of Friday afternoon, it appears that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is going to be a box office disappointment for Paramount and Nickelodeon this weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Their current estimates have it at $27 to $30 million, but the film cost $135 million to make, from the article. And interestingly, IMO, for the merchandise, the Playmates TMNT toy line has to compete with itself, because they are selling Out of the Shadows movie toys alongside season 4 "Dimension X" toys from the Nickelodeon cartoon.

    So, the weekend estimate is up from the early Friday projections, but that number is still disappointing, considering the cost of the movie.

    That's an absolute shame about Popstar. It was a really fun movie.

    Good for Zootopia, and it's still in theaters, so it might have until the end of June to get a small increase. It makes me wonder how Moana is going to do with all the hype towards Zootopia.

    That's what I'm afraid of. I'm scared that this is going to be another Inside Out/Good Dinosaur situation.

    Get ready for something brand new to change the box office count this weekend: The T-Mobile effect. That is because, if you are a T-Mobile customer, you can get a free ticket to Warcraft. Variety has an article about it. As you can probably guess when giving away free movie tickets, that caused overwhelming demand for the new T-Mobile Tuesdays app, but T-Mobile appeard to be surprised by it.

    For anyone who might be worried about Warcraft, don't be. Apparently, even though it's a flop domestically, it's doing super well overseas, to the point where it's already broken some records in China and is now the tenth highest grossing film this year (worldwide).

    Anyway, I've heard good things about Conjuring 2. I think I'll probably have to see it.

    The problem with China though is I think Warcraft would only get 25% of the box office revenue it generates there. The rest going to whatever the Chinese government has in place to make sure out-of-country productions don't get their full costs back.

    A Chinese company owns Legendary now so they're going to make their money anyway.

    This doesn't surprise me in the slightest. I saw it at 11:30 this morning and the theater was packed, despite the fact the kids in my area don't get out of school until the 24th.

    I'm so glad to see the opening weekend record for an animated movie has finally been broken.

    Finding Dory continues to have superb box office numbers, earning over $73 million, from estimates at The Hollywood Reporter. However, Independence Day: Resurgence is a huge flop at the North American box office with only $41.6 million estimated. I will not be surprised if that drops below $40 million for the actual tally on Monday, as studios tend to avoid giving estimates with a "9" at the end, and want to project the biggest positive spin possible on Sunday. Despite what the THR article says, international box office sales generally mean lower returns for the studios, so ID:R may not make much of a profit, if any at all, once it concludes its run.
