Box Office Mojo is a website that tracks box office revenue in a systematic, algorithmic way. Brandon Gray started the site in 1999. In 2002, Gray partnered with Sean Saulsbury and they grew the site to nearly two million readers when, in July 2008, the company was purchased by Amazon.com through its subsidiary, the Internet Movie Database.
The forums were a popular place for box office "fanatics" and the site at one time was home to several popular movie games and quizzes/test,(e.g., Fantasy Box Office (created in 2006) and Create A Year of Movies), until these were summarily cancelled for financial reasons. Tracking is still done very closely to the day by day, actual tabulation of distributors, making it possible to see the general trend of a film's "earnings trajectory".

Famous quotes containing the words box and/or office:
“To be black and an intellectual in America is to live in a box.... On the box is a label, not of my own choosing.”
—Stephen Carter (b. 1954)
“The very existence of government at all, infers inequality. The citizen who is preferred to office becomes the superior to those who are not, so long as he is the repository of power, and the child inherits the wealth of the parent as a controlling law of society.”
—James Fenimore Cooper (17891851)
