New in Theaters Nov. 1: Ender's Game, Free Birds, Last Vegas

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/31/13 at 01:46 PM CT

October is behind us and November enters with some big guns - or at least some big names. You have a quartet of seasoned veterans descending on Sin City - an adolescent sci-fi epic and some animated feathered friends that hope their film isn't a turkey. Gravity may have dominated October (even in the overall month was down compared to 2012) but it looks like November is going to have a lot more c...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of October 29-November 4

Harley Lond - wrote on 10/28/13 at 07:35 PM CT


THIS WEEK'S THEATRICAL RELEASES:

"Monsters University": Ever since the release of "Toy Story" (1995), the folks over at Pixar have striven to equal (or surpass) the breathtaking excitement of that ground-breaking film. Although they've rarely fallen on their face...

Weekend Box Office: Bad Grandpa Brings Gravity Down to Earth; The Counselor Falls Flat

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/27/13 at 08:35 PM CT

Well, what do you know? It took a Jackass to dethrone Sandra Bullock. How many people saw that one coming? Actually, it's not too big of surprise, given that the past three Jackass films have opened to pretty big openings and the market was ripe for a broad comedy. In fact, this was the first weekend in October to actually improve over 2012 (up 17%) and even with Gravity taking so many of the hea...

New in Theaters Oct. 25: The Counselor, Bad Grandpa

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/24/13 at 06:41 AM CT

Last weekend proved to be a bit of a letdown - at least for the new movies. Gravity continues to rule the top of the box office and I see no reason why this weekend should be any different. You have another thriller aimed at adults (granted with a well-rounded cast) and yet another sketch comedy from the master of gross-outs and violence, the Jackass crew, who take things in a slightly different ...

Harley Lond - wrote on 10/21/13 at 07:25 PM CT

THIS WEEK'S THEATRICAL RELEASES:
"Before Midnight:" It's been 18 years since director Richard Linklater teamed with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy for "Before Sunrise" (1995), a romantic drama about two strangers, American tourist Jesse and French student Celine (in their twenties), who meet on a train bound for Vienna and spend a day and night together discussing love, life, religion...

Weekend Box Office: Gravity Makes it Three in a Row, Carrie Scares Up Limited Audience

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/20/13 at 10:10 PM CT

It was no surprise over the weekend (at least for me) with Gravity once again taking the top honors at the box office. Despite the two top dramas bringing in the crowds, the overall box office was still down a hefty 20% compared to 2012 - and although it's looking as if adults will continue to support these strong movies - it probably means the rest of October is also likely to be a bit below com...

New in Theaters Oct. 18: Carrie, Escape Plan, The Fifth Estate

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/17/13 at 06:41 AM CT

With Gravity continuing to pull in the majority of audiences - is there any chance that a different October release has any chance of making it big? Chances are we're not going to see much of a challenge this weekend. We have a horror remake and a little-advertised action/thriller and another film targeting the adult crowd with a riveting biography. I have a feeling the three films combined offer...

Harley Lond - wrote on 10/14/13 at 10:00 PM CT

THIS WEEK'S THEATRICAL RELEASES:
"The Heat": Even in this enlightened era, female buddy movies are far and few in between -- so it's a pleasure to have two top comediennes join forces to tear up the big screen with outrageous bits and wild shtick. It's a great concept picture: Take sassy, foul-mouthed Melissa McCarthy and slapstick-savvy Sandra Bullock and cast them as a boundary-b...

Weekend Box Office: Gravity Continues Record Setting Run, Captain Phillips a Strong Second

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/13/13 at 10:41 PM CT

After an impressive opening weekend, it looks like audiences are still attracted to Gravity. And it turns out there is room for two adult dramas as Tom Hanks found out with one of his best openings in five years. All in all it was a very strong October weekend - even if most of the fireworks were made by the top three films (leaving scraps for the rest). It also meant the weekend was down about 1...

New in Theaters Oct. 11: Captain Phillips, Machete Kills

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/10/13 at 10:52 AM CT

Last weekend Gravity pulled in a record October opening - helped in large part by a monster 3D/IMAX showing. I have a feeling that we're going to see a repeat of Sandra Bullock and George Clooney making the best of a bad situation up in space as the two newcomers aren't likely to attract nearly as much attention. While one is serious and has a major star, the other is the complete opposite, an ov...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of October 8-14

Harley Lond - wrote on 10/07/13 at 09:52 PM CT

THIS WEEK'S THEATRICAL RELEASES:
"The Purge" combines the best of several thriller genres all in one fairly tightly directed and acted outing: there's the near-futuristic "Clockwork Orange" violence-for-violence's- sake scenario, a home-invasion-by-strangers attack, and a "Straw Dogs's" fight-back retaliation. In the near future, in order to reduce crime in America, the government ...

Weekend Box Office: Gravity Attracts Record October Opening

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/06/13 at 10:07 PM CT

Although the box office was bit down compared to the same period last year (by about 13%), you can bet that didn't matter much to Alfonso Cuarón, George Clooney or Sandra Bullock. It turns out that with a nice marketing effort, tremendous buzz and spectacular audience response, you have the perfect storm for box office success. While demographics always seem to point to the coveted young adult au...

New in Theaters Oct. 04: Gravity, Runner Runner, Metallica: Through the Never

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/03/13 at 07:08 AM CT

Families drove the box office last weekend, helping Cloud with a Chance of Meatballs 2 take the fourth-highest opening for any September film. But now September is behind us and October is here. We start the month off with a couple of heavy hitters and some heavy metal to boot. Considering Cloudy 2 is still the only fresh family film out there, it is bound to have some staying power - but will it...
