Box Office: 'Terminator Genisys' Earns $6.5M Thursday, Aims For $40M Holiday Haul

3 hours 30 minutes ago
Terminator Genisys continued its relatively disappointing holiday weekend with a $6.525 million Thursday gross. That's a smaller drop than Magic Mike XXL (-27% vs. 38%) in terms of Thursday-to-Friday, but both films have now earned $15m in two days while one film cost $14m and the other cost $155m. It's looking like a $41m Wed-Sun debut frame, which is frankly a disaster for the very expensive Paramount/Viacom Inc. sequel/reboot/remake/etc. Skydance Productions and friends may want to hold off on dating any future installments until they see if overseas box office can save them. To wit, the film has earned $27.97m overseas since opening in a few ... by Scott Mendelson

Box Office: Channing Tatum's 'Magic Mike XXL' Drops 38% On Thursday

3 hours 45 minutes ago
Magic Mike XXL may not end up the top film or even the top new release of the July 4th holiday weekend, but it still should up being in better shape than its more expensive rival. The Channing Tatum dramedy earned an additional $5.75 million on Thursday. That brings the $14m sequel's domestic take to $15m in two days and sets the stage for a likely $35m-$40m holiday frame, give or take the bumps. While the film dropped 38% from its $9.315m opening Wednesday, it dropped just 18% from its "pure" $7m Wednesday gross (minus the $2.3m worth of Tuesday previews). ... by Scott Mendelson

Why Do Organizations Work With Freelancers?

3 hours 54 minutes ago
The freelance economy continues to grow but there would be no growth if companies around the world didn't tap into this on-demand workforce. This isn't a movement that can simply be started by people who want to become independent, it requires two sides to come together; organizations that need on-demand labor and on-demand professionals who need the organizations to get gigs. I'll be talking about freelancers much more in the coming weeks and months as I work with Work Market, a freelance management system vendor (disclosure: client). They have shared some of their data, client stories, and ideas with me that really ... by Jacob Morgan
