Universal Dominates Jan Box Thanks To Ride Along, Lone Survivor
February 8, 2014 - box office
As distant as box office, Jan is customarily a transfer ground, where usually awards-friendly holdovers make any genuine income and large new attractions tumble by a wayside. In January, a big, far-reaching recover won’t win we any attention, yet a savvy enlargement could make all a disproportion between a megahit and an also-ran. It’s expected we’ll never see a Jan utterly like a one in 2010, where Avatar ruled a roost, a month generating $1.06 billion in profits for studios. But reason your conduct adult high, Hollywood: in 2014 we came close!
Box Office Mojo reported a sum Jan domestic take of $894 million, a fantastic transport deliberation a raft of 2013 leftovers encroaching on a new recover territory. Leading a approach was Lone Survivor: a film played to decent business during a tail-end of 2013 privately in a big-city singular release. But a Mark Wahlberg actioner was a star, a star, a large splendid resplendent star when it stretched on Jan 10th, scarcely recouping a $40 million bill in a initial 3 days of far-reaching release.

Universal proceeded to dump a bang once again with Ride Along collecting $84.7 million by January. The film was a array one film in a nation for 3 weeks in a row, and is a certain gamble to cranky $100 million. Ride Along non-stop opposite a foe of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, and it’s protected to contend Kevin Hart and Ice Cube ate Chris Pine’s lunch: a view thriller hardly crawled over $35 million by a month, and it seems doubtful to pass a $83 million sum of Patriot Games to equivocate being a lowest-grossing Ryan adventure.
Disney’s Frozen was a one and usually captivate for kids, pulling in $89.9 million during a month notwithstanding being in recover for months prior. The film’s sum now stands during $360 million after a sing-along re-release, and it is a both highest-grossing charcterised non-sequel, and usually a integrate of million divided from being a biggest charcterised recover of 2013, leading Despicable Me 2. Disney stays silent on a Frozen sequel, yet you’d wish that it’s not another quickie DVD follow-up.
It’s a duel to a genocide between American Hustle and The Wolf Of Wall Street. The former was expelled progressing final year and has so collected a aloft gross, yet it pulled in $63.1 million in January, usually somewhat some-more than a Wolf’s $60.2 million. The disproportion is fundamentally negligible, given that Wall Street is roughly a full hour longer than Hustle, tying a volume of daily showtimes. Hustle has brought in $134 million domestically so far, while Wolf has usually recently upheld $100 million, yet it’s roughly doubled that ($160 million) overseas.
As for a rest of those newer releases? It wasn’t pretty. Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones became a weakest in a array ($32 million), and it usually hardly achieved improved than The Legend Of Hercules, Devil’s Due and poor, bad I, Frankenstein: even with a 3D release, that film could usually collect $12.1 million stateside.
