Mania Box Office Report: The After for Shyamalan

Fast 6 Takes the Weekend!

By Robert T. Trate     June 03, 2013
Source: Box Office Mojo

The totals are in and it looks as if another weekend belongs to the Fast & Furious 6. Making it the second summer movie to take its following weekend. The first was Iron Man 3, a feat that Star Trek Into Darkness did not accomplish. Speaking of which, it seems as if STID has cooled off at the box office. It fell another place on the chart. Will a third installment be delayed with both a search for a new director and an OK box office? 

Of course we have to address After Earth. With its poor reviews did anyone else decide to wait for cable, red box, or Netflix? Where does this leave M. Night Shyamalan on his next project? He did turn in an original piece that was not a sequel or a reboot. Yet, it looks as if more moviegoers were interested in a criminal magicians and cars. Will an Unbreakable sequel be his last play at a career? Is it the only thing that any studio will endorse? Sound off below Maniacs!
















Fast & Furious 6








Now You See Me

I saw Now You See Me this weekend and enjoyed it very much.

Funny how I was reading that ''After Earth'' totally did not promote how M. Shyamalan was the director and it still affected the very, very poor box office...kind of shows that it support the idea that the movie doesn't appear to be that great (story wise because visually, it looks awsome).

Surprised about STID going down that fast...may have to see it again.

 Meh. I'll catch After Earth on a plane. 

The lack of marketing M. Night's name means this is likely less an indictment on his box office, as on the fact that this was just a bloated vanity vessel for Darth Smith, and an audition reel for his kid.

After Earth was just okay IMHO. A good idea but the execution wasn't right for me. It needed tension and more of a sense of danger and the urgency of imminent death to make it a rollercoaster thriller. Plus the bond between an estranged father and son didn't come across strongly to me. I have to put that on M.Night's shoulders. And Young Smith wasn't a compelling character to me. If I had seen this on cable it would have been fine.

TheSilentKiller, why do you (and some others) have this hate-on for Smith? I don't quite understand it. Its not that they don't like his acting. It seems everywhere someone comments about him its like he's evil, like he was caught but never convicted of child molestation or something.

I agree with you monkeyfoot. 


I am surprised that Star Trek is doing so poorly.  I really enjoyed it. 

Except of course I think they botched the pacing in the end.  Chase scene was un-necessary or out of sequence. 

I saw Fast 6 yesterday.  It has some fun parts inter mixed with ridiculous plot elements.  The end credit scene was interesting.  I would have rather had him yanked from the car and shoved in a trunk and then that call made. Since they were being so lenient with cannon anyway. (Vague for those that haven't seen it and wish to)


I guess now you see me is next up for me. Maybe star trek again just to bolster its earnings.  I would like to see another.

 I got out to see Fast 6. I am a fan of the franchise so I really enjoyed it, despite so many unrealistic moments. I enjoy the cast and the concept. The Fast universe has evolved as the storyline has changed. Which I enjoy, because the first film was basically a retelling of Point Break (which I also really enjoyed). The past couple of movies have done double their budgets oversees.


I keep hearing great things about Star Trek. I am shocked at the lack of $ vs the budget, I hope there is a strong oversees market. I thought with the Star Wars announcement it might have given some fans from the other side more interest to see it. I hope to see it this week.

I really can't wait to see Superman, I hope the action lives up to it's trailer.

World War Z!!! Looking great.

Saw F&F 6 over the weekend; absurd but fun and enjoyable.  I guess that's the allure of these movies.  Gina Carano was terrible which is quite an accomplishment considering this wasn't the greatest collection of thespians to begin with.

Saw Star Trek on Saturday and really enjoyed it.  I too am surprised at the lower than expected box office.  I hope it doesn't affect a sequel.  I liked the little setup at the end for the next film.  And Cumberbatch was awesome as the villain.

If Star Trek manages to double its combined US and Intl. box office receipts by the end of the month- You can bet on a sequel.
