Box Office Mojo

Stats overload for cinema junkies.

I retain statistics better than I remember people’s names. To memorize an old door code (8762) I simply repeated the phrase, “It takes a Robocop (’87) To Kill A Mockingbird (’62).” Ever wonder what the number one movie was back in 1987? Three Men and a Baby. Robocop was 16th. Box Office Mojo isn’t pretty, but it’s a fascinating look at the cadence of pop culture through the lens of cinema.

This week’s Frandoms are by Jason Theodor at Blast Radius.
