'Hidden Figures' Topples New Releases to Take MLK Weekend While 'Rogue One' Passes $500 Million

It wasn't necessarily an exciting Martin Luther King weekend, though it is rather astonishing to see how poorly all but one of the weekend's new and expanding wide releases performed. The weekend's successes find Hidden Figures leading the way for a second weekend, followed by Golden Globe juggernaut La La Land while it was STX's The Bye Bye Man that over performed against tracking and delivered the best new opening among the weekend's new and expanding releases, more than doubling the film...

'Hidden Figures' Poised to Top MLK Weekend Ahead of Several New & Expanding Releases

SATURDAY AM UPDATE: With an estimated $5.5 million on Friday Hidden Figures is leading the way. At this time industry expectations range from $18-20 million for the three-day with the four-day climbing anywhere from $22-28 million based on these early results.

The film took in an estimated $5.43 million on Frida... (Box Office Mojo - Top Stories 12-Jan-17)

2017 Kicks Off with Tight Race for #1 Between 'Rogue One' and 'Hidden Figures'

Domestic weekend estimates are in, but the full story won't be told until actuals arrive Monday afternoon as the top two films are within a mere fraction of one another as severe winter weather had a clear effect on this weekend's grosses. For the time being Rogue One: A Star Wars Story holds the top spot over Fox's expanded release of Hidden Figures by less than $200,000. The weekend's lone new wide release, Screen Gems's Underworld: Blood Wars, scored a fourth place finish while Focus's e... (Box Office Mojo - Top Stories 08-Jan-17)

'Hidden Figures' & 'Underworld 5' Debut with 'Rogue One' Set for #1 Again

SATURDAY AM UPDATE: It is looking like a very close race at the top of the weekend box office as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is suffering a sharper drop than we expected, looking at a $23-24 million weekend while Universal's Sing is looking like it will hit around $23-25 million. Making things even more interesting is the performance of Fox's Hidden Figures, which may also have a shot at the #1 slot after bringing in an estimated $7.57 million on Friday, heading toward at least $21 million...

'Rogue One' Tops New Years Weekend, Capping Off Disney's Monster 2016

With the coming of the new year we can now say 2016 was officially the largest year at the domestic box office of all-time as 725 films delivered over $11.3 billion, led by Finding Dory, one of several films that contributed to Disney's record year wherein the studio saw 16 films deliver over $3 billion in domestic revenue.

'Rogue One' Set to Close Out 2016 With Third Straight Weekend at #1

The final weekend of 2016 features no new wide releases, but should feature plenty of tickets sold across the country with most everyone getting an extended weekend off work and school. Just as last weekend saw Christmas Day fall on Sunday for the first time since 2011, this weekend sees New Year's Day fall on Sunday, which means we'll be looking closely at the same weekends from 2011 and 2005 for some inkling as to how this weekend's holdovers should perform. That said, look for Rogue One:... (Box Office Mojo - Top Stories 29-Dec-16)
