New in Theaters Jan. 31: Labor Day, That Awkward Moment

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/30/14 at 06:39 AM CT

Seems the cold weather is finally catching up to the box office as audiences have been giving a cold shoulder to most of the new releases recently. That has been good news for a few of the lucky holdovers that have been heating up the box office (Ride Along and Lone Survivor among them) but can this weekend bring some new blood into the top five? It's going to be an uphill battle, that's for sure...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of January 28-February 3

Harley Lond - wrote on 01/27/14 at 06:24 PM CT

THIS WEEK'S THEATRICAL RELEASES:
"Rush": You've got to hand it to director Ron Howard: he went out on a limb to produce and direct this film set during the golden age of 1970s Formula 1 racing -- a sport little-known by most Americans (although it draws massive audiences worldwide, both at Grand Prix events and via broadcast). There are few auto racing movies that make money -- act...

Weekend Box Office: Ride Along Still Cruising On Top, I, Frankenstein DOA

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/26/14 at 10:14 PM CT

As I predicted, it was a major case of deja vu at the box office this weekend as, except for one slight shift, the top five films were the same as last weekend. That's good for the current champions but not so good for the one new wide release that premiered. But it should be noted that as a whole January is considered one of the leaner months for movies. That being said, the most impressive movi...

New in Theaters Jan. 24: I, Frankenstein

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/23/14 at 06:57 AM CT

Although the year has been kind to the box office overall, January is known for being one of the dumping grounds for movies they don't have a lot of faith about. But this years has seen some clear winners arise - and it's been a much better start to the year than 2013. Now, I fear, we're going to be seeing a lot of familiar faces as there is one lone (wide release) entry entering the fray, and I ...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of January 21-January 27

Harley Lond - wrote on 01/20/14 at 07:45 PM CT

THIS WEEK'S THEATRICAL RELEASES:
"Captain Phillips": Two-time Oscar-winner Tom Hanks turns in one of his best performances in years in the true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the U.S.-flagged MV Maersk Alabama off the African coast. Phillips and his crew were held hostage for ransom, setting up a tense headline-making standoff between ...

Weekend Box Office: Ride Along Sets Record, The Nut Job Opens Hot, Jack Ryan Does Not

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/20/14 at 12:01 AM CT

While the year is still young, that doesn't mean records can't fall. Thanks to the strong arrival of some new films, as well as the continued strength of some decent holdovers, 2014 is getting off to an excellent start. Considering how slow last year was out of the block, this just might mean that the records set last year could easily fall and 2014 might wind up as the new highest-grossing year ...

New in Theaters Jan. 17: Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, Devil's Due, Ride Along, The Nut Job

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/16/14 at 06:46 AM CT

Lone Survivor started 2014 off with bang - opening with one of the highest January totals on record. This week four movies join an already-crowded box office and there can only be room for a few winners. A reboot of a popular (literary) agent looks promising - another horror film will try to improve over the lackluster response to the latest Paranormal Activity film - a red-hot comedian on the st...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of January 14-January 20

Harley Lond - wrote on 01/13/14 at 08:29 PM CT

THIS WEEK'S THEATRICAL RELEASES:

"Enough Said": Nicole Holofcener is the best director you've never heard of. Her forte is quiet, small romantic comedies that revolve around women struggling to find themselves in the world -- weak and strong women who stand up to the world as women and not as appendages to men. She's cut her directing chops on TV's "Sex and the City," the "Gilmor...

Weekend Box Office: Lone Survivor Melts Frozen's Hold on the Box Office; Hercules Far from Legendary

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/12/14 at 11:51 PM CT

After weeks of claiming the box office for its own, families had to take the back seat to the might of the military over the weekend. Meanwhile, it wasn't all good news as Hercules proved to be very mortal indeed and some other films didn't find as much success going from wide to limited release as they would have liked. Still, it was a slight uptick in sales compared to last year and hopefully m...

Golden Globes 2014: The Wit and Wisdom of the First Major Awards Show

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/12/14 at 10:41 PM CT

Usually the Golden Globes are considered a good precursor to the Academy Awards. Also, usually, one movie tends to stand out of the pack. This year, however, the Globes were really all over the place (and I'm not talking about the incredibly long walk people had to make to get up on stage). All I can say is the Academy Awards are still anyone's game at this point. But here are some of the things ...

New in Theaters Jan. 10: The Legend of Hercules, Lone Survivor, Her

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/09/14 at 06:46 AM CT

The box office got off to a chilly start in 2014 and I have a feeling it's not going to get a much better reception going into another week. Two films are going into a wider release following a much more limited opening while a new warrior steps up to see if he can conquer the box office. I have a feeling we're going to experience another bout of deja vu as I don't think any of the films poses a ...

THIS WEEK'S THEATRICAL RELEASES:
What better way to start off the new year than with a staggering indictment of greed and imbalance in our economic system. "Inequality for All" is a passionate argument on behalf of the middle class by Robert Reich -- professor, best-selling autho...

Weekend Box Office: Frozen Has No Problem Holding Off The Marked Ones

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/05/14 at 09:09 PM CT

Is it cold where you're at? Because I don't remember them ever cancelling school for cold weather when I was young (and I had to walk uphill both ways in 10 foot snowdrifts to get to and from school anyway). Hopefully your heating bill is paid up - as for the box office - things were a little chilly there as well. Families continued to be the main draw while a franchise in need of a reboot didn't...

New in Theaters Jan. 03: Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/02/14 at 10:46 AM CT

Last week, despite the best efforts of deluge the box office with plenty of new faces and films, almost nothing clicked with audiences and only The Wolf of Wall Street was able to crack the top five (and there were more bombs than success). Still, it turned out that 2013 was just able to pass 2012 as the highest-grossing year ever for Hollywood. Now that it is 2014 - how are things going to start...
