Box Office Mojo is a website that tracks box office revenue in a systematic, algorithmic way. Brandon Gray started the site in 1999 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 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".

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