Box Office Tidbits

I’ve got a few mini box office news items so let’s power rangers these suckers into one monster smashing whole.

– Black Swan continues to hold strong this week, pulling around $2.5 million on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. After Wednesday’s numbers the total cume is $36 million, and I think it’s now almost a certainty that this modestly budgeted film will crack $50 million.

– looks at Twitter, Facebook and web buzz to help hone their predictions. On top of their web buzz chart is Your Highness, with twice the number of mentions as the final Harry Potter film, which is in second place. While the film is being talked about, Universal will want to try and increase the positive buzz, which is at 22%. Negative is only 4% but compared to the other films on the chart, it could definitely be better.

– I found a really cool visualization of the year’s box office numbers, which of course includes Black Swan at the very end. Yummy.
