The Gross Movie Pool: 2006

Four New Films, Four New Flops - Week 2

The American Public didn't just hit the polls last week to voice their displeasure with the way things are going in Washington, they also sent a message to Hollywood by boycotting all of the new films at the box-office. For the first time in the history of the blockbuster pool, the exact same Top Three films from the weekend before were the same Top Three films again.

Borat #1 With A Microphone - Week 1

After endless internet, media-hyped films flailing at the box-office, imagine the industry surprise when one actually works. Borat kicked off the Holiday Movie Pool season with $26.5 million and bested both the other family films being offered.

2006 Holiday Movie Pool Preview

In case if you don't know what's coming out for the 2006 Holiday Season, check below for a detailed list of this year's crop!

2006 Summer Movie Pool Final Report

What a weird/wacky summer it was. In theory the box-office numbers were up this summer from the last, yet I think most people's attitude about the season is down.

Snakes Flakes As A Blockbuster - Week 16

Snakes Flakes As A Blockbuster - Week 16

Almost a year of hype, a boat-load of free publicity, the word-of-mouth flick that people didn't want to stop talking about, and a popular actor that people love to see "do his thang" couldn't make Snakes On A Plane any bigger than any other B-Grade movie launched in the summer.

Constricting a mere $15.2 million, it's almost hard to see how much worse this film would've done if it hadn't had any of the hype of all. It probably would've at least made $9 million on ridiculousness alone with all the man-guy bets of "Come on, dude, let's go check out that Samuel L. snake flick."

Heck, Anaconda opened with almost $17 million nine years ago. Even Anacondas: The Hunt For The Blood Orchid (which should've been titled The Hunt For A Really Lame Name) debuted with $12 million last year.

For better or for worse, it just confirms studio moguls beliefs that what a few whacko on the internet think doesn't amount to jack-squat at the box-office. I just wished I'd realized that those internet people were nuts before I wasted those 10 dollars on The Blair Witch Project.

The Top Five If Week 5 Was Labor Day:
#1. Pirates of the Caribbean 2 - $401.2 million
#2. Cars - $239.6 million
#3. X-Men 3 - $234.1 million
#4. Da Vinci Code - $217.5 million
#5. Superman Returns - $194.2 million

This Week
With all the heavy hitters out of the way and no August sleepers waking anything up, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas for one particular pooler.

Nights Takes A Second Victory Lap - Week 15

The Ballad continued for Ricky Bobby as Talladega Nights slipped 53% and still made $22.1 million. With $90.3 in 10 days, Will Farrell won't have to be staying at any roadside motels anytime soon. However, it doesn't look like this film has the gas to park in the Top Five either.

Ricky Bobby Drives To The Top - Week 14

Will Farrell returned to the heights of other comedic superstars as his Talladega Nights ruled the hot August days.
