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 ...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of December 2-8

"The Hundred-Foot Journey" is a by-the-book feel-good movie from master of the melodrama Lasse Hallstrom ("The Cider House Rules," "Chocolat"). Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a young culinary genius who moves with his family to a quaint village in the south of France and opens an Indian restaurant, the Maison Mumbai, right across the street from L...

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...

New in Theaters November 26: Penguins of Madagascar, Horrible Bosses 2, Imitation Game

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/26/14 at 04:48 PM CT

Family and food are upon us as Thanksgiving once again allows us to catch up with the most important people in our lives, while stuffing our face with everything within' hands reach. Meanwhile, for Hollywood, the holiday means essentially an extended weekend - especially for families - and are hoping that after the feast, and Black Friday, people are going to want to wind down with a movie (or...

"The Expendables 3": Say what you will about "over-the-hill" action heroes, but these "past-their-prime" stars can still kick some big screen action butt. In this second sequel, the Expendables leader, Barney (Sylvester Stallone), augments his team with new blood for a personal battle: to take down Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson), the Expendables c...

Weekend Box Office: Mockingjay Opens to Year's Best but Also Franchise Low

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/23/14 at 07:55 PM CT

It was a good news/bad news kind of weekend. On the one hand, there was no doubt Hunger Games was going to dominate the weekend - the only question was how big it was going to get. That question was answered and although it certainly posted impressive numbers, it was a bit under the expectations set by the first two films in this monster franchise. Still, it had many factors to take into account ...

New in Theaters November 21: The Hunger Games - Mockingjay Part 1

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/20/14 at 06:56 AM CT

While there may only be one new wide release opening this weekend - there is a reason. It turns out no one else wants to go up against one of the most lucrative and popular movie franchises out right now. The weekend is going to be dominated by one movie and one movie only - and I think it has a chance to be not just the biggest movie of the month, but could very well be the highest-grossing movi...

"22 Jump Street": Here's a thoroughly silly movie that made close to $200 million at the box office, out-performing the first in the franchise, 2012's "21 Jump Street," which took in $138 million, making it a rarity among sequels (which typically don't outperform their prequels). Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum return (as do directors Phil Lord and ...
