Weekend Box Office: Think Like a Man Leads the Calm Before Blockbuster Storm

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/29/12 at 11:22 PM CT

Audiences were apparently content to sit and wait things out this weekend as it was a somewhat lackluster performance, especially for the new releases, at the box office.

Leading the way for the second week in a row was Think Like a Man. Down 47% from its opening weekend, the battle of the sexes comedy took in $18 million for a nearly $61 million total. The film now stands as the highest-gross...

New Movies to Crave: Pirates!, The Raven, The Five-Year Engagement & Safe Make Their Moves

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/26/12 at 08:52 AM CT

There's a lot of competition at the box office on this Friday April 27th, 2012. Not only that, but there's a little of everything thrown into the mix: comedy, romance, action, family and horror.

1) Looking to continue the success of recent romantic comedy Think Like a Man, Nicholas Stoller's The Five-Year Engagement has Jason Segel and Emily Blunt as the perpetual couple who just can't commit ...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of April 24

Harley Lond - wrote on 04/24/12 at 02:39 PM CT

"Contraband:"

We like Mark Wahlberg. We like Kate Beckinsale. And one of our guilty pleasures is the criminals-turned-good-sucked-in-to-do-one-more-job movies. But for some reason the combination of the three didn't click here. The plot revolves around Wahlberg's Chris Farraday, an ace smuggler who gave up his life of crime to head up his own security firm. When his brother-in-law botc...

Weekend Box Office: Think Like a Man, Lucky One Lead Romantic Charge

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/22/12 at 11:38 PM CT

A one-two punch of romance led the box office over the weekend. One took the comedic approach, the other a more dramatic route, but both put up impressive numbers and helped knock The Hunger Games from the top spot.

Opening in first was Think Like a Man with $33 million. Opening in just 2015 theater (as opposed to the 3155 for The Lucky One), the per theater average was a whopping $16,377 - th...

New Movies to Crave: Will The Lucky One Live Up to Its Name?

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/20/12 at 03:11 PM CT

After four week atop the box office, The Hunger Games looks to face its toughest challenge yet: a film that specifically targets its strong female audience.

April 20, 2012 brings us a few new contenders looking to win the weekend:

1) Up first has to be the romantic drama, The Lucky One. Zac Efron and Taylor Schilling look to make beauty, sappy puppy dog eyes at each other - which for me is ...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of April 17

Harley Lond - wrote on 04/17/12 at 11:17 AM CT

This week's theatrical releases to DVD:

Mission Impossible -- Ghost Protocol:
There's so many leaps of faith required on the part of viewers here that this film should be called "Mission: Give Me a Break." Blamed for the terrorist bombing of the Kremlin, IMF operative Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is disavowed along with the rest of the agency when the President initiates "Ghost Protocol." L...

Weekend Box Office: Odds Favor Hunger Games for Fourth Weekend as Stooges, Cabin Fall Short

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/16/12 at 01:51 AM CT

While the weekends new films put up a valiant effort, neither Three Stooges, nor a scary cabin nor a prison breakout in space could bring down Katniss and co. from the top spot.

The Hunger Games was the first film since Avatar back in Jan. 2010 to top the box office for four straight weeks. Bringing in an estimated $21.5 million on the strength of a robust female audience, the film raised its ...

New Movies to Crave: Stooges, Cabin in the Woods & Lockout Fight for Top Spot

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/13/12 at 10:39 AM CT

Welcome to Friday April 13, 2012 - hopefully it won't bring bad luck for the three new films looking to bump off The Hunger Games from the top spot following three weekends at the top.

1) The Cabin in the Woods - This film has a much earlier release date but held up partly because the studio wanted it converted to 3D (which, luckily, didn't happen). But it's here now and I'm excited for a few ...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of April 10

Harley Lond - wrote on 04/10/12 at 03:25 AM CT

April is the cruelest month, especially for DVD releases. There's not much excitement coming your way the rest of this month -- aside from "Mission Impossible -- Ghost Protocol," due next week -- so we'll just have to bide our time until some real heavy hitters come our way. In the meantime ...

Weekend Box Office: The Hunger Games Serves Up Another Win Over American Reunion, Titanic

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/08/12 at 11:58 PM CT

The Hunger Games became the first film in 2012 to make it to the top of the box office three weeks running. It seems audiences were still in the mood for something new as opposed to revisiting some old friends over the weekend.

Now only did The Hunger Games retain its position atop the box office, it also became the first film of 2012 to cross the $300 million mark. With a drop of just 43%, Th...

New Movies to Crave: Titanic Comes Back in 3D, the Gang Returns for an American Reunion

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/06/12 at 11:12 AM CT

It's a trip down memory lane this weekend as we get a 3D re-release and a franchise that returns after a nearly eight-year respite. It really comes down to how audiences feel about revisiting some old friends or whether The Hunger Games will continue to draw in the lion's share of moviegoers.

1) For a long time people had predicted that Titanic would be the top-grossing film of all time after ...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of April 3

Harley Lond - wrote on 04/03/12 at 03:29 AM CT

It's a week for sentimental outings as the king of sentimentality, Steven Spielberg, regales us with a heart-wrenching drama about a boy and his horse, and rock-critic-turned-writer-director-producer Cameron Crowe gives us a light-hearted family-comedy-drama that ups the ante for feeling good (drugless). Read on.

Giddyup, Steven Spielberg. After taking on a Belgium comic book hero this year in...

Weekend Box Office: Audiences Prefer Second Helping of Hunger Games Over Titans, Mirror Mirror

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/02/12 at 12:24 AM CT

The odds were still in favor for The Hunger Games, which topped the box office for the second straight week. Despite competition from two major films, in the end, it wasn't even close.

With an estimated $61.1 million, The Hunger Games dropped 60% from its record-breaking opening and broke the $250 million barrier in just two weeks. In fact, it was the quickest to reach that mark for a non-sequ...
