New in Theaters December 17: Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies, Annie, Secret of the Tomb

Chris Kavan - wrote on 12/18/14 at 06:43 AM CT

One movie has already hit theaters early - two other family-friendly titles will vie for the top spot, but I don't see it being much of a contest this weekend. Things have been in kind of slump since Thanksgiving, but this weekend should finally turn things around for Hollywood. Granted, it's a little to turn around the sting of the less-than-fruitful summer, but at least the year can end on a b...

Weekend Box Office: Exodus Tops Mockingjay but is Less Than a Kingly Opening

Chris Kavan - wrote on 12/14/14 at 10:59 PM CT

If Hollywood was counting on a strong December to counter a weaker summer, those hopes were pretty much dashed over the weekend. Though The Hobbit is sure to draw in a crowed, and the Christmas release schedule is packed, this weekend was another disappointment as the top 12 could only muster $77.7 million - ranking up there with the slowest weekends of the year. It's going to take a miracle to s...

New in Theaters December 12: Exodus: Gods and Kings, Top Five

Chris Kavan - wrote on 12/11/14 at 06:56 AM CT

Even with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 doing its part, it has been a couple of depressing-looking weekends at the box office following the Thanksgiving onslaught. Luckily, it looks like Hollywood is ready with a counter-punch this time. We have one big-budget blockbuster and an urban comedy with the hottest actors around. Both should appeal to their core audiences and we should finally ...

Weekend Box Office: Mockingjay Threepeats on a Winter Blah Weekend

Chris Kavan - wrote on 12/07/14 at 11:20 PM CT

Still suffering from some post-Thanksgiving blues, Hollywood apparently decided this wasn't going to be a good weekend and didn't release any new films in wide release. Because of that decision, the top 12 film earned just $70.4 million - tied with the second-lowest weekend of 2014 and down a steep 19% compared to 2013. Thanks to a weaker-than-expected summer, 2014 is still running about 4.6% beh...

New in Theaters December 05: Wild, The Pyramid

Chris Kavan - wrote on 12/04/14 at 06:52 AM CT

Now that Thanksgiving is over and we're all working off that mountain of food we all ate (right? right!?) - Hollywood is also going to take a step back to recover before assailing us with some more big-budget offerings. It's going to be a quiet weekend overall - there is one horror movie hoping to capitalize on fans being hungry and a buzzy Reece Witherspoon drama drawing comparisons to Into the ...

Weekend Box Office: Mockingjay Tops Penguins, Horrible Bosses 2 is a Turkey

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/30/14 at 08:29 PM CT

The long Thanksgiving holiday weekend meant that families had plenty of time to spend quality time together - and maybe catch a movie (either together, or to get away for awhile). Mockingjay cast its spell for a second straight weekend, as the newcomer proved to be a bit of a disappointment. While Catching Fire and Frozen helped the 2013 skyrocket - this year the overall total was off 20%. While ...

The Evolution of Black Friday

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/26/14 at 11:19 PM CT

I realize I'm getting older, but looking back at the dark ages known at the 90s, it amazes me how much things have changed in just a short span of time. I was disheartened that the day after Halloween, I saw the first Christmas ad of the year. It used to be most advertisers waited until after Thanksgiving to start up with the holiday cheer. But why wait when you can ram the savings and specials d...
