Noah Floods The Box Office! Recordbreaker Rides High Above Divergent!

noah box office hit numbers opening weekend beats divergent

Moses may have parted the sea, but Noah made people part with some C-notes!

The Russell Crowe-starring biblical epic (with the biblical budget of $125 million!) won the weekend, earning a domestic box office take of $44 million!

The flood knocked Divergent from its top spot to a respectable number 2 $26.5 mil.

But the real surprise may be Noah's international draw. The movie took in $95 million worldwide, including a record breaking $17 million in Russia alone! Bozhe moy!

Captain America: The Winter Soldier also debuted just about everywhere BUT America, earning a superheroic

Divergent Destroys The Haters- And The Muppets! Shailene Woodley Is Now A Box Office Smasher!

divergent opening weekend box office millions muppets most wanted

Divergent did NOT diverge from expectations this weekend.

The film adaptation of the popular book series was on the high side of its tracking, earning a solid $56 million in its opening weekend.

Shailene Woodley has herself a bona fide hit! No wonder the sequel already has the green light!

Unfortunately it's not easy being green as the second place Muppets Most Wanted learned. The star-studded Disney comedy scored a disappointing $16.5 million despite an incredibly popular viral ad campaign.

Maybe if Kermie got himself some seksi back tattoos…

P.S. - In case you missed it, check out our exclusive interview with Shailene and the rest of the cast the Divergent premiere HERE!

Veronica Mars Continues Its Killer Opening Weekend! See How Much It Made In Only 291 Theaters!

veronica mars movie

What do you call a massive hit on a small scale? Well, you can call her anything that you like, but her name is Veronica!

The Veronica Mars movie is experimental in many ways, not the least of which is raising its budget from fans on Kickstarter.

The movie was also only released in 291 theaters in North America for its opening weekend, while being made available for rent at the same time.

And the film's biggest potential fans, its backers, were (mostly) able to download it free!

Despite all this working against them, Kristen Bell and the rest of the Neptune players were still able to pull in an impressive

Captain America Sequel Tracking An $80 Million Opening! Expected To Grow As Big As Chris Evans' Biceps!

captain america the winter soldier box office

How big is Captain America: The Winter Soldier going to get? Well, if Chris Evans' muscles are anything to go by, much bigger than the last one!

Box office experts are tracking it to surpass $80 million in its opening weekend alone!

The sequel is expected to benefit from what's called the "halo effect" of mega-hit The Avengers. Cap's teammates already saw big jumps in their opening weekend takes.

The first Thor took in $65.7 mil, but after The Avengers, the thunder god made it rain with $85.7 million! Likewise, Tony Stark got even richer, going from $128.1 million for Iron Man 2 to $174.1 million in Iron Man 3.

That's over a 30% increase in both franchises! Captain America: The First Avenger also opened to about $65 mil, so $80 mil is looking like an easy hurdle!

And repeat business might be good too! Word is that both Disney and Marvel are so happy with the film's quality, they've already greenlit number three!

We guess green is the operative word!

Shailene Woodley Is Already Bringing In The Big Bucks With Divergent Set To Open With At Least $50 Million In Sales!?!

Filed under: Film FlickersBookzShailene Woodley

divergent early numbers at 50 million already

Well, we're not exactly surprised by this!

The film hasn't even premiered yet, but early numbers are in for the opening weekend of Divergent and it looks like the movie is on track to make AT LEAST $50 million!

Not only this, but if those are the early sales alone then it looks like the Shailene Woodley headed film just might beat the first Twilight movie's $69 million opening weekend!

The anticipation for it is HUGE, so we have no doubt those numbers could definitely be a reality!

Plus, they've been teasing us with A LOT of music from the film, so that's an added bonus of enticement!

And, honestly, have you SEEN Theo James shirtless?!?!!?

Major hottie alert!

We're sure that just about everyone will be flocking to theaters to see it!

Mark Wahlberg's Lone Survivor DESTROYS The Competition With A Huge Opening Weekend!

lone survivor still doodle

We're guessing Marky Mark is feeling those good vibrations right about now because that dude is on top of the movie-making world!

The gritty new war film he stars in, Lone Survivor, just enjoyed a $38.5 million dollar opening weekend and easily dominated its box office competition!

Not only did Peter Berg's critically acclaimed flick oust Disney's Frozen from the top spot, but it straight-up OBLITERATED two other big name films that also opened this weekend.

In fact, it nearly TRIPLED the combined total grosses of Joaquin Phoenix's Her ($5.4 mil) and Julia Roberts' August: Osage County ($7.3 mil)!!

Man Of Steel Estimated To Fly As High As $100 Million This Weekend!

man of steel flying

Is Superman strong enough to break through the $100,000,000 barrier?

Some analysts think so! Estimates have Man Of Steel making as much as $105 million this weekend, which would put it just under the top 20 opening weekends of all time!

With a good head start of $21 million on Thursday late night screenings alone, the film has a shot, but Warner Bros. is trying not to get their hopes up. They're expecting the reboot to hit around $85 mil.

We think they may be underestimating the super-powered appeal of Henry Cavill! In the pantheon of pecs to put on Clark Kent's specs, we think he rates pretty darn high! Up in the sky high!

It's a bird! It's a plane! Nope, it's a chiseled jaw and an 8-pack of abs!

Yeah, we're going to say a $100 million without breaking a sweat! But if he does, that's OK too! LOLz!
