TCA 2010: HBO says Boardwalk Empire pilot cost $18M

When HBO does television, they do it big (after all…”It’s not TV, it’s HBO”). However, this is really, really big.

Variety reports that the pilot episode of  Boardwalk Empire , directed by Martin Scorsese, cost a massive $18 million (with tax breaks–so the actual cost was even higher).

“I kept thinking ‘This is pointless. How can we possibly afford a boardwalk, or an empire?’?” Writer Terence Winter recalls. “We can’t call it ‘Boardwalk Empire’ and not see a boardwalk.”

Winter, a longtime writer-producer on “The Sopranos,” worried that even with Martin Scorsese as a producer, the project was too ambitious for the smallscreen. Winter had found in his research that the boardwalk back then amounted to “Times Square on the ocean.” Such scope seemed impossible to reproduce authentically for a TV series.

Weekend Box Office Numbers (March 5-7, 2010): Alice in Wonderland opens to $116.1M; Breaks 3D/IMAX records

Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland grossed an impressive $116.101 million, the biggest opening ever for Burton (crushing the $68.533M opening of 2001’s “Planet of the Apes”) and the best-ever opening debut for a 3D film (eclipsing the $77.025M for Avatar). The film opened on Friday to $40.805M, improved 8.3% to 44.209M on Saturday and dropped 29.7% on Sunday to $31.087M. That translates to a per theater average of $31,143.

The 3-day tally is enough to put it ahead of Valentine’s Day ($106.42M) as the highest-grossing film of 2010.

‘Alice’ was helped significantly by 3D and IMAX, which accounted for about 70%, or over $80M of its opening weekend, topping the previous $55M record set by Avatar. The film grossed an estimated record $11.9M (included in the $80M tally) from just 188 IMAX venues (an incredible $63,197 per site).  The previous best for IMAX was Avatar‘s $9.5M from 178 sites.  Box Office Mojo estimates that combined, the 3D and IMAX ticket premiums over normal prices added about $22M to Alice‘s gross.

Worldwide receipts were also strong, $100.5M from 6,455 sites in 40 territories (for a per-screen average of $15,569) putting its opening weekend worldwide cume at $216.601 million. Head on over the jump for more analysis and the weekend chart.
