New in Theaters January 30: Project Almanac, Black or White, The Loft

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/29/15 at 06:37 AM CT

After two monster weekends atop the box office, American Sniper shows little signs of slowing down - and will soon eclipse Saving Private Ryan as the top-grossing war movie of all time. Once again, it will be joined by three new wide releases this weekend - a found-footage time travel film with shades of Chronicles, a thriller revolving around five guys and one body and finally a heart-warming fa...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of January 27-February 2

Harley Lond - wrote on 01/27/15 at 04:12 AM CT


"The Judge" is a straight-ahead, old-fashioned, well-written and well-acted melodrama about a snarky, hotshot big city lawyer (Robert Downey Jr.) who returns to his small Indiana town for his mother's funeral and ends up defending his stern, know-it-all, son-of-a-bitch estranged father (who happens to be the town judge) from a hit-and-run murder c...

Weekend Box Office: American Sniper Stays on Top, Mortdecai Flops

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/25/15 at 09:02 PM CT

It was another banner weekend for American Sniper - which is good, considering two out of the three new films opening tanked hard. It was good news all around as the top films earned $137 million - up a whopping 46% compared to last year (which, if you remember, got off to a rather slow start). But while the overall picture looks good - there are some major bombs joining Blackhat as 2015 is shap...

New in Theaters January 23: The Boy Next Door, Strange Magic, Mortdecai

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/22/15 at 06:44 AM CT

Following the monster weekend and MLK holiday for American Sniper ($120.5 million and counting), the coming weekend also looks like it's going to be dominated by the Oscar hopeful. There are three new movies (and one expansion) coming this weekend: Whiplash, another awards hopeful, is getting the expansion, while Strange Magic looks to capture some of the family audience from Paddington, The Boy ...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of January 20-26

Harley Lond - wrote on 01/20/15 at 03:54 AM CT


"Lucy": From "La Femme Nikita" to "Leon: The Professional" to "The Fifth Element," writer-director Luc Besson has created some of the most memorable female action heroes in recent cinema. Now he's teamed with sexy diva Scarlett Johansson (who was devilishly scary in last year's "Under the Skin") to create another tough female protagonist, one who ...

Weekend Box Office: American Sniper Red Hot in Record January Opening

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/18/15 at 08:44 PM CT

There were early calls that American Sniper was going to open big, but even the most generous models were no match for the sheer enormity of Clint Eastwood's true-story war drama. Meanwhile, it was also a pretty good weekend for families and comedy fans - though with American Sniper getting all the attention, the same couldn't be said for Blackhat. With the impressive opening the top 12 films ear...

New in Theaters January 16: Blackhat, Paddington, American Sniper, Wedding Ringer

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/15/15 at 06:42 AM CT

Taken 3 easily dominated the box office and with final numbers rolling in, it was the third-biggest January opening on record. It's going to have plenty of competition this weekend as three movies open wide and an Oscar hopeful expands nationwide itself. Last week also was down compared to 2014 - so we'll see if the power in numbers will help lift things back into the black for the year. The movi...

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/14/15 at 03:01 PM CT

While regular columnist Harley Lond continues to send his apologies, I will once again step in for the new home video releases this week. You'll find plenty to get excited about this week - one of my favorite films of the year gets a release, You also have Liam Neeson stopping more bad guys, an unconventional love story, a stylish thriller, a "what-if" story about Elvis (and a WTF story as well) ...

Weekend Box Office: Taken 3 On Top with Near-Record Opening

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/11/15 at 08:56 PM CT

It was a banner weekend for an action movie franchise, even if it didn't quite lift the box office to new heights. The overall box office was down 8% compared to last year, as people wait with baited breath to see which Academy-Award Nominated films they need to see before the big awards show (FYI - look our for the two-part announcement this Thursday morning). That always provides a nice bump - ...

New in Theaters January 09: Taken 3, Selma

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/08/15 at 06:51 AM CT

The new year started off with a bang, now we get to see if things can keep on rolling in the right direction. We have the third entry in a high-impact action series along with the nationwide expansion of a civil rights drama with a very good chance of some awards-season love. I think the two, along with the strong holdovers that have been chugging since Christmas, should be enough to propel the b...

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/06/15 at 07:11 AM CT

Regular columnist Harley Lond sends his apologies, but due personal issues he is unable to preview this week's column. Thus I will step in for this week, wishing Harley the best, who should be back next week with the regular column. As it is, this week certainly provides a lot more to get excited about than the previous few weeks which, due to the holidays, looked rather weak on the new releases ...

Weekend Box Office: Hobbit Five Armies Once Again Rules Them All

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/04/15 at 09:30 PM CT

It was a three-peat for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies over the first weekend of the new year. Thanks to the Middle-Earth finale, along with a decent horror debut and some strong holdovers from last weekend, the top 12 films at the box office earned 6% more compared to first weekend in 2014. While there wasn't too much excitement, there was one record set (in limited releas...

New in Theaters January 03: The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/01/15 at 10:03 AM CT

So we ended 2014 and a nice high note with The Hobbit, Unbroken and Into the Woods providing a much-needed boost. The year might not have matched expectations, but it was still a pretty good year overall. Now that we've bid goodbye to 2014, we welcome in 2015. However, those hoping things would start off with a bang will have to wait awhile. There is only one film opening in wide release after th...
