April 19-21 Box Office Report

This past weekend was extremely rare.  Most of the time when a film falls out of the top 5 box office positions it stays out.  Very rarely does it happen to climb back in after being knocked out in the previous week.  It is even more rare that it jumps up two positions! Congrats Captain Marvel for being that very rare film.

After the April 12-14 box office wrapped up, Captain Marvel was knocked out of the top 5 box office positions.  However, it came back with a vengeance and not only managed to steal the number four position this past weekend (miraculously jumping over five), the amount of people that saw it in weekend six compared to weekend seven jumped up by six percent.  This is rare because traditionally a film’s trajectory for the amount of tickets purchased drops close to 50 percent per weekend.  It almost never goes up.

Also, The Curse of La Llorona managed to destroy initial projections of $17 Million predicted by Box Office Mojo  and bring in just over $26.3 Million.  For lower budgeted horror movie this is a huge success. Continue reading “April 19-21 Box Office Report”

Terrifying First Look At ‘The Curse Of La Llorona’

A first look trailer for the James Wan produced film, The Curse of La Llorona, has hit the web and once again shows that anything that Wan touches will haunt your nightmares.

Wan is responsible for such terrifying horror franchises as The Conjuring and Insidious.  Now he brings us the story of La Llorona, a crying woman who lives between heaven and hell – cursed by her own hand when she drowned her two kids.  The film is directed by Michael Chaves, who Wan has picked to direct The Conjuring 3, so this proves that the horror director/producer has a lot of faith in Chaves’ capability in directing horror.

The Curse of La Llorona stars Linda Cardellini, Raymond Cruz, Patricia Valasquez, Marisol Ramirez, and Sean Patrick Thomas. The film is set for a release date of April 19, 2019.  Expect to be terrified.
