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[1], in July 2008, the company was purchased by Amazon.com through its subsidiary, the Internet Movie Database.[2][3]

The forums are a popular place for box office "fanatics" and is home to several popular movie games and quizzes (e.g., [fantasyboxoffice.com Fantasy Box Office] (created in 2006) and Create A Year of Movies). Tracking is done very closely to the day by day, actual tabulation by the distributors, making it possible to see the general trend of a film's "earnings trajectory".
