Weekend Box Office: 2 Guns Shoots to the Top, Smurfs 2 Feels the Blues

Chris Kavan - wrote on 08/04/13 at 09:44 PM CT

The summer is certainly winding down - August is traditionally a slower month and the first weekend is not exception. The $126.3 million box office was up about 11% compared to last year but the compared to previous weekends, its numbers are quite a bit lower. The top film wasn't able to crack the $30 million mark and most of the waves made by films come from some strong limited release films wel...

New in Theaters August 02: The Smurfs 2, 2 Guns

Chris Kavan - wrote on 08/01/13 at 06:50 AM CT

Now the summer begins the gentle slide into fall. Although there are some blockbusters to look forward to, August tends to be on the quieter side compared to June and July. Still, with the overall box office still looking in very good shape, this weekend, featuring a family-friendly sequel and yet another action film looking to give the genre some kick this year, August should start off well enou...

10 Types of People Who Kill the Theater Experience

Chris Kavan - wrote on 07/31/13 at 06:22 PM CT

I go to the movies. Like, a lot. If not every weekend during the summer, certainly every other weekend. I sometimes see movies more than once - but one thing that never changes whether you're watching a matinee, a midnight showing or even catching some obscure film at the local art house theater - there are some people you just want to avoid. These are the people who make movies less enjoyable si...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of July 30-August 5

Harley Lond - wrote on 07/29/13 at 05:40 PM CT


"G.I. Joe: Retaliation": You really have to be a "G.I. Joe" fan to appreciate this tangled mess of a movie. The sequel to 2009's "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" scored more than $122 million at the boxoffice, so -- having missed the original -- I settled down to what I hoped would be an evening of exciting fights, explosions and all-out war on the s...

Weekend Box Office: Wolverine Claws to First Place, The Conjuring a Strong Second

Chris Kavan - wrote on 07/28/13 at 10:08 PM CT

There wasn't too much doubt over which movie was going to wind up in first place this weekend. The only question was how much The Wolverine would make. Although the numbers suggest that fallout from the poorly received X-Men Origins: Wolverine were still in effect, Hugh Jackman should have no problem bouncing back given a strong international push. All in all, the total box office was up 25% comp...

New in Theaters July 26: The Wolverine, The To Do List

Chris Kavan - wrote on 07/25/13 at 07:12 AM CT

Despite throwing a lot of movies out last weekend, it was only the low-budget horror film, The Conjuring that found success. Meanwhile, Ryan Reynolds had a rough time as two movies he fronted, Turbo and R.I.P.D., failed to find much of an audience. It was also one of the few weekends this summer that was down compared to last year. Will this weekend get back on track? We have a popular super hero...

Weekend Box Office: The Conjuring Scares Up Record Opening, R.I.P.D. DOA

Chris Kavan - wrote on 07/21/13 at 10:58 PM CT

While there were four new movies to choose from this weekend, it was the film with the lowest budget that made the biggest waves. While the box office has been on the upswing, this weekend was off 19% from last year - but that was the weekend The Dark Knight Rises bowed, so a loss is very understandable. Even so, there were a few bright spots to be found (along with a few black marks as well) and...

New in Theaters July 19: R.I.P.D., Red 2, The Conjuring, Turbo

Chris Kavan - wrote on 07/18/13 at 06:47 AM CT

Pacific Rim may have made the wrong kind of splash, but last week's box office was still a strong one for an already impressive summer for 2013. This week we have a nice mix of offerings including the return of horror, a straight-up action movie, another animated offering and a comedy/action hybrid. It's also going to be a busy weekend for Ryan Reynolds, who is at the head of two our of these fou...
