New in Theaters November 30: Killing Them Softly, The Collection

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/29/12 at 04:48 PM CT

Two huge weekends have helped Hollywood to an exceptional November. Now, as we reach the end of the month things are slowing down. In fact, I have a feeling the top 3-5 movies are going to look very familiar, as there's no doubt in my mind the rather tepid offerings in the next few weeks will do little to change the face at the box office. That's good news for the films currently playing - but no...

Too Early for 2013 Oscar Predictions? I Think Not

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/28/12 at 02:12 PM CT

Here we are - November is coming to a close with December (and some huge movies) right around the corner. Now, a disclaimer, I haven' see every movie this year - including many that could be up for awards (or that haven't been released, obviously) but I have seen enough that I am willing to make my initial predictions on what films (and which actors) we're likely going to be seeing come awards ti...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of November 27

Harley Lond - wrote on 11/26/12 at 07:41 PM CT

The first "Men in Black" (1997) was a mind-blowing affair, what with it's outrageous premise of a secret organization dedicated to policing alien activity on Earth, its then-state-of-the-art special effects, and its wry humor. "Men in Black II" (2002) tried to mine more of the first's box office gold and, though it tread the same territory, still was a fun outing. Ten years later stars Will Smith...

Weekend Box Office: Twilight and Skyfall Lead the Way to Record Thanksgiving Returns

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/25/12 at 07:44 PM CT

After a strong opening last week, it was once again The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2, along with fellow holdover Skyfall, that helped the box officer earn a record $206.7 million over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, easily topping the $175.2 million previous record set back in 2009.


Through the five day holiday period, the Twiligh...

New in Theaters November 21: Life of Pi, Rise of the Guardians, Red Dawn and Silver Linings

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/21/12 at 12:03 PM CT

Welcome to a very special holiday edition of the the New in Theaters blog. Thanks to Thanksgiving landing on Thursday, pretty much all the major releases are coming out on Wednesday in order to take advantage of the holiday. It's too bad most people spend Thanksgiving indoors eating heartily, so I'm still thinking most of the big money is going to come in over the weekend anyway. I have a feeling...

"The Expendables 2":
Need a gigantic 1980s/1990s hero fix? Want to see the latest adventures of senior citizen action stars? Then "The Expendables 2" is for you. Sylvester Stallone gathered together his old buddies from 2010's "The Expendables" -- Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger, added in Chuck Norris and Jean-Clau...

Weekend Box Office: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 Wraps Up Series With Big Win

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/18/12 at 09:08 PM CT

It was a good weekend for those who like vampire and historic biopics as the two new debuts, plus some strong holdovers, helped the top 12 films take in $237 million - the sixth-highest weekend total on record.

Leading the pack by a comfortable margin was the final Twilight film: Breaking Dawn - Part 2. Opening with $141.3 million - it was good enough to be the eighth-best opening for any film...

New in Theaters November 16: Lincoln, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/15/12 at 06:10 PM CT

Last week Skyfall delivered a huge boost to the box office. It seems after a longer-than-average four-year wait, audiences were more than happy to welcome 007 back to the big screen. This week, a movie that made some big waves in limited debut opens nationwide and a franchise that's a big hit with tweens, teens and, yes, even many adults, finally comes to end and all signs point to a monster open...

Official FilmCrave Staff Verdict: Skyfall Movie Review

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/13/12 at 07:02 PM CT

After a longer-than-average four-year hiatus from theaters, James Band returns in his 23rd outing with Skyfall. Celebrating 50 years, the film opened very strong in international markets before setting a franchise record over the weekend. But is Skyfall really the best Bond yet? Here's the breakdown from the FilmCrave crew to see if you should believe the hype surrounding the latest 007 film.

Harley Lond - wrote on 11/12/12 at 07:14 PM CT

You gotta love Oliver Stone: The director wears his sentiments -- and his politics -- on his sleeve. I don't think I've yet seen a Stone film in which the good characters aren't all compromised and the bad guys aren't all ... well ... really, really bad. "Savages" is no exception. This extremely violent drug war saga revolves around two lifelong buddies and multimillionaires (Aaron Johnson...

Weekend Box Office: Skyfall Wins Weekend; Stakes Claim as Best Bond Yet

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/11/12 at 11:52 PM CT

It was a good weekend for a certain man who likes Astin Martins, Walther PPKs and Vodka martinis shaken, not stirred. After burning up the international box office, Skyfall had trouble making waves in the domestic market as well. It all added up to a hefty 29% increase for the top 12 films compared to the same weekend last year.

For the 23rd outing for everyone's favorite spy, with Daniel Crai...

Nicholas Cage - Now Starring in Everything!

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/10/12 at 09:55 AM CT

If you haven't had a chance to check out my profile page (and why not - I'm a nice guy!), I'll tell that under my guilty pleasures I list the "many films of Nicolas Cage" (and Super Troopers). Why you ask? The actor is not exactly discriminating when it comes to picking out his projects, especially not lately. If you need proof, well, let's look at a few key pieces of evidence from the past few y...

New in Theaters November 09: Bond is Back with Skyfall

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/08/12 at 06:21 PM CT

Last week Hollywood chalked up a big win with the northeast returning to a bit of normalcy and boosting Wreck-It Ralph to the top of the box office, with Flight a strong second place. I have a feeling the next few weeks are going to have big returns as well, as there are some franchises with strong offering for fervent fans coming out. This week there is only one new wide-released film, but I hav...

In Honor of Election Day 2012: My Favorite Fictional Presidents in Film

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/06/12 at 08:39 PM CT

As I write this, the results from the 2012 presidential election are pouring in. If things are going to be as close as reported, it may stretch into tomorrow - or even election week depending on just how close the votes get.

Yet all this coverage can leave your head spinning, so it's nice to have a bit of levity. That's why I'm turning to some of my favorite films to analyze which fictional p...

"The Amazing Spider-Man":
What a difference a decade makes. This reboot of 2002's "Spider-Man" (which grossed more than $403 million, making it one of the top moneymakers of all time: No. 13 in the U.S.) pretty much covers the same ground as the original but adds in more spectacular special effects and a less nebbish Peter Parker -- in the form here of talented Andrew Garfield ("The Soci...

Weekend Box Office: Wreck-It Ralph, Flight Fuel Box Office to Big Win

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/05/12 at 12:34 AM CT

It was an excellent weekend at the box office as two new comers ignited a one-two punch to put the top 12 films 20% ahead of the same weekend last year. It was also a welcome recovery in the northeast as families looking for a return to normalcy following the devastating hit by Sandy were a big reason the box office looked so good.

Opening in first place was the animated Wreck-It Ralph. With J...

New in Theaters November 2nd: Flight, Wreck-It Ralph, The Man with the Iron Fists, The Bay

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/01/12 at 04:38 PM CT

After last week's disappointing return following a stream of above-average weekends, Hollywood looks to redeem itself. There are plenty of films to choose from: a drama, an animated family film, an over-the-top action piece and a horror film, but despite the interesting mix, it may another rough weekend. With the after-effects of superstorm Sandy still being felt, it could once again affect the b...
