Weekend Box Office: The Rite Does Right, King's Speech Continues Oscar Bump Surge

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/30/11 at 10:27 PM CT

Looks like American is willing to give exorcisms one more shot as Anthony Hopkins and The Rite took the top spot over the weekend.

With an estimated $15 million, The Rite sat atop the box office, and performed in line with what was expected. Also showing up within expectations was The Mechanic. With Jason Statham and plenty of action, the film wound up tied for third place with The Green Horn...

New Movies to Crave: The Mechanic in a Fight Against The Rite

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/28/11 at 10:42 AM CT

Do you crave some action or a something a little more spooky? If you want something that's not going to be on Oscar's radar, or have already sampled the nominees, two new entries will try to shake things up over the weekend.

1) First, Anthony Hopkins takes a trip down Exorcist Lane as he prepares for The Rite. In this "based on true events" film, Hopkins is a priest who travels to Italy to lea...

Oscar Nominations Are Out: Let the Predictions Fly!

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/25/11 at 11:05 AM CT

It looks like the Oscars are shaping up to be a battle of the staid, old-school British costume drama and the up-to-the-moment, hipster social media biography. Throw in a grizzled western and a mind-bending dream and hopefully Oscar won't disappoint.

The King's Speech has 12 nominations, followed by True Grit's 10 and The Social Network and Inception both picked up 8. Here is the list, with my...

No Strings Bounces Green Hornet in Modest Box Office Brawl

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/24/11 at 10:11 AM CT

Has the romantic comedy curse finally been lifted? Well, I'm not about to declare the drought over. Even though No Strings did manage to take the top spot at the box office, the low-key $20.3 million debut was nothing to get excited about.

For Ashton Kutcher, it falls right in the range of his previous rom-coms, What Happens in Vegas ($20.2 million) and Just Married ($17.5 million) while this ...

New Movies to Crave: Look Ma, No Strings Attached!

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/21/11 at 09:59 AM CT

Maybe Hollywood is afraid of The Green Hornet, or maybe they're just getting ready for the rest of awards season... Whatever the case, don't expect a tidal wave of films anytime soon.

1) Natalie Portman shows that she doesn't just need to show her gritty ballerina side all the time. No Strings Attached is about as far from Black Swan as you could ask - a fun, romantic comedy about casual sex t...

New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave This Week: Stone Buried Takers; No, It's Not a 60s Album Title

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/19/11 at 11:41 AM CT

Usually you have one good laugh in the new releases, but it seems this week it's all drama and crime, so if you wanted comedy or family films it's just not your week I'm afraid.

1) I'm curious to see if Ryan Reynolds can pull off a one-man show. In Burie...

Globes Indicate the Oscars Are Going to Be a Very Social Affair

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/17/11 at 12:45 AM CT

When I first heard the new about a Facebook movie coming out, I was skeptical. I became a little more interested when I found out David Fincher was directing, but still, Facebook movie? - Maybe it's just the fact that I hardly use the site, but I still wasn't convinced. Yet I watched it opening weekend, and my fears were dispelled and I have no qualms saying it is was the best film I saw in 2010....

What To Watch In Theatres This Weekend?

Nick - wrote on 01/14/11 at 11:41 AM CT

Two movies are coming out this weekend that are worth some attention. Now whether or not they're going to be good is another story...

The Green Hornet

If you've watched any TV in the last month, you know they've been advertising the crap out of this movie. Comic book lovers and vigilante wanna-bee...

New Movies to Crave: The Green Hornet Battles a Dilemma

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/14/11 at 08:45 AM CT

It should be an interesting weekend at the box office for once now that a super hero has arrived on the scene.

1) I'm interested to find out if The Green Hornet can overcome bad early buzz to become a certified hit. While I'm still not sure Seth Rogan is the right choice, at least in the last few weeks the ad wizards have really stepped up their game in making the movie much more appealing. St...

New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave This Week: Get Social but Watch Out for Piranha

While the quantity may be down this week, the quality makes up for it.

Weekend Box Office: True Grit Finally Lives Up to Its Name; Fockers, Witch Hang Tough

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/10/11 at 09:56 AM CT

While it was a modest start to the new year, at least True Grit was finally able to top the box office.

The Coen Brothers' western earned $15 million and now stands at $110.4 million. The films has now topped the grosses of Maverick, The Unforgiven and Tombstone - though attendance numbers are still lower due to higher ticket prices. As far as westerns go, this ranks as one of the best of the ...

New Movies to Crave: The Witch is Back (Season of the)

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/07/11 at 11:41 AM CT

Well, hopefully you need to catch up on some of the rush of limited release films (I know I certainly do) because Hollywood isn't in much of a mood for new films.

In fact, the only film opening in wide release today is the Nicolas Cage Black Plague drama / fantasy film Season of the Witch. Considering this has been pushed back from an earlier release into the dregs of January, something tells ...

People's Choice Awards - Did The People Get It Right?

Nick - wrote on 01/05/11 at 11:38 PM CT

Favorite Movie - The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

The final award of the night, and maybe the biggest let down. The Twilight groupies were voting strong on this one. With the movie being #73 on FilmCrave's top movies of 2010, I find it hard to believe this movie should actually be the winner. After all, FilmCrave is also based on regular people's ratings. With other nominated movies like Incepti...

New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave This Week: Schmucks, a Machete and One Last Exorcism

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/03/11 at 11:40 PM CT

It looks like the machine is once again rolling as the releases are all over the map this week. Hopefully you like a good scare as well, as there are a couple of good contenders out there.

1) You have to hand it to Robert Rodriguez. Only he could turn a throwaway trailer gag in Grindhouse into a full-fledged movie and start a trend (Hobo with a Shotgun?). Anyway,

Weekend Box Office: Little Fockers Shows Up True Grit

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/02/11 at 11:03 PM CT

Despite having an edge over the New Year holiday, the Coen Brothers couldn't stave off Ben Stiller and Co. for the weekend.

The third film in the series, Little Fockers took the top spot with $26.3 million with a $103.2 total. With few comedies on the horizon, Little Fockers could have a good shelf life.

In second place was True Grit with $24.5 million. With a total of $86.8 million, the fi...
