Box Office Disaster: Lackluster Releases, Mayweather-McGregor, Hurricane Harvey Create Slowest Weekend in Over 15 Years

Box Office Disaster: Lackluster Releases, Mayweather-McGregor, Hurricane Harvey Create Slowest Weekend in Over 15 Years
There’s no getting around it: this weekend’s domestic box office is a catastrophe.

In the grand scheme, it can seem like a small issue when compared with Hurricane Harvey — the deadly natural disaster that tore through the Gulf Coast of Texas on Friday, dumping more than 20 inches of rain, according to the National Weather Service. But Harvey also had at least some impact on the business, forcing theater closures in South Texas. Still, the degree to which the storm hurt the bottom line of moviegoing is up for debate.

Another factor under inspection is Saturday evening’s Ufc match which saw Floyd Mayweather beat Conor McGregor with a 10th-round Tko. The fight was estimated to reap as much as $1 billion in revenues, and among the biggest pay-per-view draws in history. Numbers regarding the amount of viewers will be released later in the week

Mayweather-McGregor, Hurricane Harvey to Pummel Box Office

Mayweather-McGregor, Hurricane Harvey to Pummel Box Office
With the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight and Hurricane Harvey hurting moviegoing, holdovers “The Hitman's Bodyguard” and “Annabelle: Creation” are leading a disastrous weekend at the U.S. box office.

In fact, the Friday to Sunday frame in shaping up to be the worst of the year. According to early Friday estimates, both titles should finish in the $7 million range — by far the lowest gross for a weekend winner this year. The previous low mark was set during Super Bowl weekend on Feb. 3 to Feb. 5, when the third frame of “Split” led with $14.4 million.

Texas theaters are closing as the hurricane approaches, but one studio exec said the overall impact on the nation’s moviegoing business will be “minimal.” The Category 3 storm has already closed theaters in Corpus Christi, Texas City, Victoria, Lake Jackson, and Bay City.

“Regionally, the storm will have an impact, but the fight is a bigger threat to the overall box

Box Office: ‘Birth of the Dragon’ Kicks Off With $200,000 on Thursday Night

Box Office: ‘Birth of the Dragon’ Kicks Off With $200,000 on Thursday Night
Martial-arts actioner “Birth of the Dragon” has opened with a moderate $200,000 at 1,350 North American locations on Thursday night.

Sony’s faith-based drama “All Saints” launched softly with $70,000 during preview screenings at 773 sites in what’s expected to be a mild weekend at the box office. Preview numbers for The Weinstein Company’s “Leap!” were not immediately available, but the animated comedy is also opening amid muted expectations of about $5 million at 2,575 locations.

The second weekend of Liosngate’s “Hitman’s Bodyguard” has been forecast to win again with about $10 million, followed by the third frame of New Line’s “Annabelle: Creation” at around $7 million. Overall business is expected to be one of the slowest within memory due to marginal buzz for the new releases. Saturday night’s boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor is also expected to hold down moviegoing.

'All Saints': Film Review

'All Saints': Film Review
All Saints is a faith-based film that even atheists can embrace. Steve Gomer’s drama about the mutually beneficial relationship that develops between a small-town church and a group of Burmese refugees certainly doesn’t neglect its religious themes. But it mainly stresses the humanity of its characters and the importance of community ties. It does this in a manner that is never heavy-handed, making the true-life tale all the more inspiring.

John Corbett plays the lead role of Michael Spurlock, who gave up a corporate sales career to become the pastor of All Saints, a tiny church in Smyrna, Tennessee....

Film Review: ‘All Saints’

Film Review: ‘All Saints’
All Saints” recounts an inspiring true-life story, but don’t let that keep you away. Director Steve Gomer’s well-crafted faith-based film is affecting without undue heartstring-yanking, almost entirely saccharine-free and, perhaps most impressively, not entirely predictable. Indeed, it stands a good chance of reaching out beyond its presumptive target audience and entertaining anyone who’s willing, to paraphrase the title of an album by the late George Michael, to watch without prejudice.

Much of the credit should go to top-billed John Corbett, who gives a career-highlight performance as Michael Spurlock, a hard-charging paper salesmen turned pastor of a failing Tennessee church. Taking his cue from the solid screenplay by Steve Armour, Corbett walks a fine line between selflessness and cocksureness. We’re supposed to believe that Spurlock ended his previous career after frequent clashes with what he viewed as bullheaded superiors — of course, he always knew better — and has not really dialed down his skepticism of

Box Office: Will ‘Hitman’s Bodyguard’ Protect No. 1 From Newcomers?
A sluggish summer at the box office appears to have almost reached a standstill.

Last weekend, “Hitman's Bodyguard” won the domestic box office with $21.4 million. That was a solid opening for a film without a superhero, well-known source material, or a franchise to back it up. But now, in week two, it seems the movie could retain its spot on top, even if it sees a 50% to 60% drop.

The fresh releases don’t post much of a threat, starting with “Leap!” from the Weinstein Company. The animated film, which has already picked up $58.2 million from foreign markets, is looking at an opening around $5 million from 2,500 locations. Éric Summer and Éric Warin directed the movie, titled “Ballerina” in all territories outside the U.S. It’s billed as a musical adventure comedy about an orphan girl who aspires to become a dancer. The voice cast is led by Elle Fanning, and also includes Maddie Ziegler,

Can Hitman's Bodyguard Fend Off 3 New Movies at the Box Office?

Can Hitman's Bodyguard Fend Off 3 New Movies at the Box Office?
While the action-thriller The Hitman's Bodyguard ended up managing an easy opening weekend box office win just a few days ago, it also set a record for box office futility, with the lowest-grossing overall weekend to date in 2017. As the summer movie season comes to an end this weekend, that record may be broken, with three under-promoted movies hitting theaters, the animated comedy Leap!, the Bruce Lee biopic Birth of the Dragon and the religious drama All Saints, which are expected to open in 2,000 theaters or less. We're predicting that The Hitman's Bodyguard will actually come out on top again this weekend with a projected $12.5 million as the disappointing summer season comes to a close.

While The Hitman's Bodyguard didn't exactly have a stellar opening weekend, it will still have a much wider release than any of these newcomers. Box Office Mojo reports that Leap! will have the "widest" release of any of these newcomers,

Monte Carlo TV Festival Hosts World Premieres: ‘Absentia,’ ‘The Last Tycoon’

Monte Carlo TV Festival Hosts World Premieres: ‘Absentia,’ ‘The Last Tycoon’
Faced with increased rivalry from nearby Cannes, the Monte Carlo Television Festival is pulling out all the stops this year with two world premieres of hotly anticipated Hollywood shows as “Absentia” and “The Last Tycoon,” will grace the Grimaldi Forum red carpet.

Long known as a glitzy launching pad for high-end global TV fiction and a celebration of top notch news content — the festival celebrates 57 years with this edition — the competitive event is seemingly undeterred by announced plans for yet another ambitious TV fest, called Cannes Series, that is slated to run concurrent with Mip. Expected to launch next year in Cannes, of course, which is about an hour’s drive down the Cote d’Azur.

Monte Carlo itself runs June 16-20 — shortly after the L.A. Screenings in May.

‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ 15th Anniversary: Anatomy of the Sleeper Hit (Photos)
Screenwriter-actress Nia Vardolous initially wrote “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” thinking a few people who identified with her might appreciate it. But the indie movie, starring John Corbett — then the hunky Aidan Shaw on HBO’s “Sex and the City” — went on to become the sleeper hit of the summer in 2002 and remains the highest-grossing romantic comedy until this day. Take a look back at the origins of the hit indie movie: Fotoula “Toula” Portokalos is the leading role written and played by Nia Vardalos. It is based on her own upbringing as a Greek American — as...
