US Box Office Estimates April 23-25 2010

Last week's eventual runner up, Dragon, regains the top spot this weekend, a rare feat, but one enabled by a weak overall weekend. Newcomers Losers and Back-Up Plan fail to make the draws to displace the Dreamworks film on it's 5th weekend. Last weeks photo-finish winner, Kick-ass, plummeted down the charts while the Carell/Fey comedy Date Night racks up all the threes, staying at third spot on it's third weekend.

US Box Office Estimates April 16-18 2010

Another week, another top spot occupied by a  3D movie , as How to Train Your Dragon regains the top spot after 2 weeks down in 3rd, presumably as it's the only wide-release kids film this weekend. Superhero movie Kick Ass was within striking distance though, but not quite delivering the knock-out blow to come second. Meanwhile Date Night stayed strong, and morbid comedy Death at a Funeral also got a decent draw, despite being a remake of a British film released just 3 years earlier.

US Box Office Estimates April 9-11 2010

Clash of the Titans takes the top spot for a second week, although there's stiff competition from newcomer Date Night (staring comedy 'Titans' Steve Carell and Tina Fey), and How to Train your Dragon. Tyler Perry's film moved down the order, without the staying power of the 3D films. Otherwise a fairly typical weekend, with the more recent bawdy comedy, Hot Tub, going ahead of the limited time release of Alice, now in it's 6th weekend.

US Box Office Estimates April 2-4 2010

light change, as we go from the top5, to the top10.

Two new releases top the charts, Clash of the Titans (yet another 3D movie), and Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too?, with a third taking 4th place, behind last week's top earner, How to Train a Dragon. Alice's staying power seems to be waning, though, perhaps making the Disney decision to shorten the release time to 12 weeks appear smart in retrospect.
