Box Office Mojo is a website that tracks box office revenue in a systematic, algorithmic way. Brandon Gray started the site in August 1998 and claims to now receive over two million monthly visitors.

The forums are a popular place for box office "fanatics" and is home to several popular games (Fantasy Box Office and Create A Year of Movies). Tracking is done very close to the day by day, actual tabulation by the distributors. It is possible to see the general trend of a film's "earnings trajectory".

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