FINAL UPDATE, 1:32 PM: Fury ended the weekend at $23.7M for Sony and QED, so it underperformed all the tracking (gee what a surprise), social media metrics, and expectations just a little. But it will likely still make money all in after its domestic, international and home entertainment run. I understand that there were significant profit participations on this one. Fox and Reel FX’s The Book Of Life closed the weekend on the high end of our estimate with $17M and will have some playtime again over the next two weekends as no new offerings are in the family zone until Big Hero 6 bows from Disney on November 7. The other newbie, Relativity’s The Best Of Me, was soft with $10M. Gone Girl is now sitting pretty at $106.7M after three weeks in release for Fox and New Regency.

sq_birdmanThe more exciting news was really in the specialty box office sector where the Michael Keaton comeback film Birdman from Fox Searchlight (yet another one from New Regency) ended up with the second-highest per-screen of the year behind another Fox Searchlight title, Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel (March). In their second weekends, Warner Bros’ The Judge fell 40%; Disney’s Alexander (and the very long title) also held well, dropping only 38%; and Universal’s Dracula Untold slid 58% (which was not unexpected).

The next two weeks are really the calm before the storm of Big Hero 6 and Paramount/Legendary’s anticipated sci-fi pic Interstellar from director Christopher Nolan. This coming weekend we will see the opening of the very violent actioner John Wick starring Keanu Reeves from Lionsgate and yet another horror film from Universal and Jason Blum, Ouija. Neither are expected to do much business, although horror audiences always come out for a new offering. Also expanding next weekend is the Jeremy Renner thriller Kill The Messenger and the Bill Murray- and Melissa McCarthy-starring St. Vincent, which has done fairly well in its platform release so far.

3RD UPDATE, SUNDAY, 8:17 AM: Fury won both the battle and the war this box office weekend while newcomers The Book Of Life is sitting above ground at No. 3 with about $16.6M to $17M and The Best Of Me got bested by four other films to take the fifth spot with only $10M and change. More interesting this weekend is the specialty box office where several really quality pictures found their audiences such as Birdman which flew in with a whopping $103K per screen average for Fox Searchlight and New Regency (on a roll lately as they also have the No. 2 Gone Girl which just passed $100M). It marks the second-highest per-screen average of the year behind another fav, Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel ($202K), also from FSL. Writer-director Ted Melfi’s St. Vincent, which is in limited release, can also boast a strong $10K for TWC and Chernin Entertainment (which is also churning out hits this year with Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes).  These two films are both getting some Oscar buzz. See the chart below following the Top Ten weekend’s grosses.

blockbillJon Bernthal;Brad Pitt;Michael PenaSony and QED can thank Brad Pitt for their weekend Fury as he boosted the attention of its war movie, written and directed well by fellow Midwesterner David Ayer (okay, we forgive you for bringing an aging Schwarzenegger back in Sabotage … on second thought, maybe not). This was a film that started out as a spec sale. Not any spec sale — QED International’s Bill Block bought it for a whopping $1M from Ayer last year and then went about getting a star to carry the film. Enter CAA who gave it to Pitt to read and viola! Lessening the weight of carrying the interest on $1M investment, this was a fast turnaround as Hollywood development goes … from the purchase in Feb. 2013, it was on the screen by Oct. 2014. Fury also gives Sony its third straight No. 1 opening this fall with The Equalizer and No Good Deed. It also was a record breaker for the PFL screens, grossing $3.5M or roughly 15% of the total that Fury has estimated to have grossed.

fury-shia-labeouf-michael-pena-logan-lerman_Fotor_FotorHow much this picture will perform around the world is anyone’s guess but with Pitt leading the charge of a strong supporting cast in Michael Pena, John Bernthal, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, (to name a few), it should get some attention overseas. An A- CinemaScore usually carries with it an average of a 3.5 multiple so this could top out domestically at around $83M or better depending on the second weekend drop. They are about $150M all in with budget and marketing and distribution costs around the world. Lone Survivor made $149.2M with about 84% coming from international markets with Mark Wahlberg leading the troops. “We had some very good reviews here in the U.S., but the ones coming out of the UK have been as good if not better which I think bodes well for our openings that start, in earnest, next week,” said Sony’s president of worldwide distribution Rory Bruer. “David Ayer is a great storyteller and with this incredible cast led by Brad Pitt … they are so good together that they take you on an emotional journey through what is an action-packed story.”

Fury‘s demos, not surprisingly, were 60% male and 40% female with a 49/51 split under and over 35 years of age, according to Sony. “Even though audience was more skewed to a male demo, I think the word of mouth is going to be great with the A- CinemaScore and the women will find this film,” said Bruer.

The Book Of LifeThe Book of Life is a very festive animated tale from Reel FX and Fox Animation set around the mythical Mexican story of the Dia de los Muertos (or Day of the Dead). It garnered a A- CinemaScore, too, on an opening of about $16.6M to $17M (we think the low end) which means his could end up around $60M domestically. We would expect a nice gross in certain territories around the globe like Mexico and Latin America based on producer Guillermo del Toro’s name alone. This one — which Fox says cost $50M — is from director Jorge Gutierrez was based on stories from his own family and came about because he had a friend who worked in the Dallas office of Reel FX who got Guillermo involved and they subsequently took it to Fox. This and Disney’s horribly long titled Alexander (etc. ad nauseum) should get some good play until Nov. 7 when Disney Animation’s Big Hero 6 bows.

The-Book-of-Life-Guillermo-Del-Toro-Jorge-RGutierrez-interview“It was a labor of love for Guillermo and Jorge, and I think it manifests itself in the amount of voice talent they were able to amass,” said Chris Aronson, president of domestic distribution for Fox. Voice talent for this visual stunner (the detail is incredible)  included Channing Tatum, Zoe Saldana, and Ice Cube, to name a few. “The themes of the movie are universal even though they are rooted in Mexican culture,” he added. The film’s demo make-up was 30% Hispanic (which is higher than the norm but very representative of the film’s story), 57% female and 43% male. Also, 54% was — not surprisingly — under 25 years old. Of the kids demo, 59% were under 10 years old. “The one constant, regardless of age or gender was that it was 4.5 stars all the way through with a very high definite recommend,” said Aronson. I saw it and concur; I would also recommend this fun film.

The Best Of MeNicholas Sparks’ The Best of Me was originally optioned by DreamWorks before ending up at Relativity — which marks the third of the author’s work to go through the distributor (Safe Haven and Dear John). This one is said to have a budget of around $26M and due to pre-sales (both foreign and ancillary) and tax credits, Relativity’s exposure is only said to be around $5M. The film really had no big name YA stars in it — Michelle Monaghan (Source Code), James Marsden (X-Men, Enchanted), Luke Bracey (The November Man), Liana Liberato (If I Stay) and Gerald McRaney (Longmire).

In their second weekends, Alexander (blah blah, etc. whatever) held well with a drop of only 34% to 37% and now sits atop a $43.5M worldwide gross while Universal’s Dracula Untold fell harder as most horror films do, down 59% but its right around $146M worldwide. The courtroom drama The Judge, which stars Robert Duvall and Robert Downey, Jr., dropped 40% and is now at a two-week cume of only about $26.8M domestically for Warner Bros. The chart follows … and I would be remiss not to thank our dilligent intern Amanda N’Duka for helping me this weekend.

2nd UPDATE, Saturday 11:23 PM: Sony and QED’s Brad Pitt starring war pic Fury is on track to make anywhere from $8.9M to $9.1M Saturday for a estimated, revised three-day of around $23M to $24M. In its third week of release, Fox and New Regency’s Gone Girl still had a lot of get up and go on date night rising about 38% to 40% today for a new, estimated three-day of about $17.6M to $17.8M; it passed $100M tonight. The animated newcomer The Book of Life from Fox and Reel FX should bring in around $7M today for a total gross of anywhere between $16.8M and $17M+. The film centers around the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) and is being advertised as a Halloween film. With no other family fare bowing until Nov. 7th and with a solid A- CinemaScore, it will play right through. This fun romp still has another big family movie going day tomorrow.

In fourth place, is another family-friendly film from Disney, Alexander (and the too lengthy title) took in around $5.2M today and is looking more like a $11.2M to $11.5M haul in its second weekend, which means it is holding pretty darn well. It should drop only around 37% to 39%. Relativity’s romancer The Best of Me should end up rounding out the Top Five with anywhere from $10.5M to $12M. This Nicholas Sparks’ film adaptation is drawing younger females who are likely dragging their boyfriends in for date night. Sorry, guys. We’re also hearing that Birdman from Fox Searchlight and New Regency is ruffling feathers in theaters with another strong night tonight. Pretty cool that New Regency, under the tutelage of Arnon Milchan and Brad Weston, has two very talked about movies in this weekend box office report. Well done.

1st UPDATE, SATURDAY 8:08 AM: Fury continues its storm this AM as it heads to a mid-$20M weekend for Sony and QED, which really needed this picture to work. This is Sony’s third No. 1 film at the box office in a row, following the record $34.1M opening for The Equalizer and Screen Gems’ $24.2M opening for No Good Deed. The budget for their newest — the well-reviewed war pic starring Brad Pitt — is around $68M, according to the studio, which we know QED financed 100% of the picture; QED is distributing through Italy, the all-important China and Japan through partners there and other territories. All in, with marketing and distribution costs here and abroad, they are looking at around $150M to recoup. Pitt’s box office prowess both here and internationally is helping to lift this picture as it rolls out as helmer David Ayer’s last outings as director (End of Watch, Sabotage) have not performed well overseas.

Sony screened Fury heavily for the military (from 35 bases to a VIP screening last week in D.C. attended by former Secretary of State Colin Powell and VP Joe Biden, with the hero veterans of WWII). That would have been a helluva memory for those in attendance, huh? Producers are Ayer, Bill Block, John Lesher (both former agents-turned-producers), and Ethan Smith.

gone-girlDavid Fincher’s leggy Gone Girl, adapted from the best-selling book by Gillian Flynn, continues its rant and will definitely go over $100M today for Fox and New Regency after only three-weeks in the marketplace. Newcomer The Book of Life should see strong family going today and tomorrow and to come in around $18M for the weekend which is good news for Fox and Reel FX. This animated adventure has a bit of space to play as both it and Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (which held very well in its second weekend) have nothing challenging them until Nov. 7 when Walt Disney Animation’s Big Hero 6 arrives.

the-best-of-meRelativity’s The Best of Me, based on the Nicholas Sparks’ book, continues to sink in expectations is now wandering in with $10M and change, although its distributor is more optimistic and thinks it will surprise everyone on Saturday date night and lift its cume between $11M and $12M. Relativity is also handling international; it opens in around 15 territories with UK/Ireland being the top market. Sparks’ movie adaptations usually make the bulk of their gross domestically.

In their second weekends, Dracula Untold added a handful of screens but it continues its descent, dropping 65% (not unusual in the horror genre) while the Robert Duvall, Robert Downey, Jr. drama The Judge had a better hold down only 38% for Warner Bros.

BirdmanThe pictures in limited release are the most fun to watch this weekend as the Michael Keaton-starring Birdman is flying high with its stellar per screen average of around $112K for Fox Searchlight and New Regency, writer/director Justin Simien’s Dear White People and the Bill Murray-starring St. Vincent also strong (see below). Here’s how it looks this AM:

1). Fury (SONY), 3,173 theaters / $8.8M Fri. (includes $1.2M latenights) / 3-day est. cume $24.3M to $25M / Wk 1

PREVIOUSLY, Friday, 11:03 PM: Fury will easily take No. 1 this weekend for Sony and QED with an expected three-day opening of around $23.5M to $25M as it dethrones Fox’s Gone Girl which will get its revenge by surpassing $100M after three weeks in release. Fury, which has been getting good critical reviews, also received a A- CinemaScore and marks David Ayer’s best opener as a director. The story on The Book of Life is that it also got a well-deserved A- CinemaScore and is in third position, expected to come in around $17.4M. The main audience for this picture will come out over the next two days, and it is skewing heavily Hispanic — moviegoers who tend to go in groups. the-best-of-meRelativity’s romancer Best of Me, which got a nice Thursday night preview of $550K, will likely only make about $11M to $13M for the weekend which is about what we expected despite tracking showing a higher gross. It received a B+ CinemaScore, which usually translates to about a 3.2 multiple.

In their second weekends, Universal’s horror film Dracula Untold is biting the dust with a 65% drop while both Alexander (and the horribly, terribly long title) and The Judge held very well in their second weekends. Disney’s Alexander is expected to drop only around 32% or so while the courtroom drama from Warner Bros. that stars Robert Duvall and Robert Downey, Jr. is holding steady at 38%.

Birdman_trailerThis week, I’m including a number of noteworthy films in limited release because some of these pictures — like the Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy comedy/drama St. Vincent and the Michael Keaton, Ed Norton drama Birdman — contain tremendous performances, writing and directing being buzzed about in advance of Oscar.
