Box Office Tidbits

By December 31, 2010Nat-news

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.

    I went to see it again yesterday (the 31st). I was pleasantly surprised at the turnout. We went around 3pm, and my husband thought we’d probably have the whole theater to ourselves. It was a smaller, I guess “normal-sized” one in a mainstream place, not an artsy one, with about…150-200 seats? It seemed like there were abou5 100 people in attendance.

    I was really glad that I got to see it again…ecstatic actually hehe. I enjoyed it just as much as the first time, if not a little more.

    Cool about the Vogue magazine. I was in B&N yesterday and saw the EW cover in person. Very pretty. Didn’t buy it tho. It’ll probably be gone by now as this is a new week. 🙁 Can’t wait to see the Vogue one.
