New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of December 31-January 6

Harley Lond - wrote on 12/30/13 at 05:14 PM CT

As we ring out the old and ring in the new this week, there's only a trickle of releases coming your way Tuesday. Topping the list is:

"Love, Marilyn" (2013), a lovingly made documentary by Oscar-nominated director Liz Garbus that is an intimate and personal portrait of Marilyn Monroe, based on the book of Monroe's recently discovered personal papers and journals, "Fragments: Poems, Int...

Weekend Box Office: Hobbit, Frozen Fend Off Christmas Onslaught as Newcomers Fall Short

Chris Kavan - wrote on 12/29/13 at 07:40 PM CT

It looks like Hollywood won't end up with coal this year. The top 12 films brought in $185.8 million - a 13% increase from the same time last year - and it should be enough to cap off 2013 as the most lucrative year yet for movies (though not attendance - because inflation and all that). Still, it should be interesting to note that out of the five new releases, only one was able to crack the top ...

New in Theaters Dec. 24: 47 Ronin, Wolf of Wall Street, Walter Mitty, Grudge Match, Bieber's Believe

Ho-ho-holy end of year rush, Batman! Why does Hollywood wait until the last minute to release so many movies? I see some of these as being potential Awards contenders, but some of the others.... really? Anyway - audiences won't have to want for much this Christmas as there is comedy, action, drama and... Justin Bieber - something for everyone! But there are always going to be winners and losers -...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of December 24-30

Harley Lond - wrote on 12/23/13 at 04:22 PM CT

With Christmas just a day away, the home video industry has taken a hiatus of sorts; there's only two releases of note this week:

"Insidious: Chapter 2," the sequel to 2010's horror-thriller in which a family tried to prevent evil spirits from trapping their comatose child in a realm called The Further. Here, the haunted Lambert family seeks to uncover the mysterious childhood secret th...

Weekend Box Office: Smaug Tops Anchorman 2 - Mr. Banks Disappoints

Chris Kavan - wrote on 12/23/13 at 12:38 AM CT

It was another great weekend for Hollywood - with the top 12 movies taking in $137.3 million - the box office was up 37% compared to the same frame last year. Barring some catastrophic terrible movie openings next week, it is all but assured that 2013 with top the $10.84 billion set last year and become the highest-earning year on record. While none of the movies could top The Avengers - there we...

New in Theaters Dec. 20: Anchorman 2, American Hustle, Saving Mr. Banks, Walking with Dinosaurs 3D

Chris Kavan - wrote on 12/19/13 at 06:42 AM CT

In what is shaping up to be a crowded end-of-year rush at the box office, this weekend sees four movies hitting wide release (one has an early Wednesday opening, and two others are going wide after limited openings). That's nothing compared to the pre-Christmas rush next week when there will be SIX new movies all vying for your attention (not to mention the holdovers from this week and those prye...

Director Gore Verbinski and actor Johnny Depp's deconstruction of the "legend" of "The Lone Ranger" came in for some heavy bashing by a majority of film critics who all seemed to jump on the bandwagon after initial reports circu...

Weekend Box Office: Smaug Sets Box Office on Fire

Chris Kavan - wrote on 12/16/13 at 12:17 AM CT

There wasn't any doubt as to what movie was going to take the box office crown - the only question was how good it was going to open. The answer is one of the best December openings on record but not as good as the record-setting original Hobbit. Even if it fell short of its predecessor, Peter Jackson doesn't have much to be worried about as The Desolation of Smaug is easily going to be one of th...

New in Theaters Dec. 13: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, A Madea Christmas

Chris Kavan - wrote on 12/12/13 at 06:54 AM CT

As we get closer to the end of the year, Hollywood brings out the big guns. The next few weeks are going to be jam-packed with blockbusters and this weekend is no exception. Just like Catching Fire did in November, Peter Jackson should have a certified lock on the box office. The question, as always, will be just how much will the super-sized sequel bring in. In terms of competition - I don't exp...

Weekend Box Office: Frozen Tops Fire; Out of the Furnace Fizzles

Chris Kavan - wrote on 12/08/13 at 11:43 PM CT

It was a reversal from last weekend as the two top box office draws switched places a week after setting some Thanksgiving records. Families apparently preferred goofy snowmen and a princess tale over, you know, people killing each other in a dystopian future. Meanwhile, the Coen Brothers had their biggest opening ever in limited release, while a dour December crime drama was too dark to make man...

New in Theaters Dec. 06: Out of the Furnace, Inside Llewyn Davis

Chris Kavan - wrote on 12/05/13 at 06:44 AM CT

After a monster Thanksgiving for Hollywood, things are going to be a bit more quiet (at least for one weekend). With only one new wide-release opening (thank isn't likely to have that much of an impact), things should keep rolling for movie titans Catching Fire and Frozen. The looming shadow of The Hobbit hangs over the blockbusters - but there is at least one more week of clear sailing before Sm...

"The Smurfs 2" is a modern hybrid live action/animated equivalent of "The Three Stooges" meet "The Little Rascals" but without any of the intelligence and irony those series exhibited. In this sequel, the Smurfs must travel to Par...

Weekend Box Office: Fire Beats Ice Over Record Thanksgiving Holiday

Chris Kavan - wrote on 12/01/13 at 11:03 PM CT

Hollywood has a lot to be thankful for as Catching Fire and Frozen combined for over $200 million alone. That's the big story - but it wasn't all good news as the rest of the nationwide releases faltered. Even so, it was an excellent weekend that broke multiple records and though competition is going to be heating up in the coming weeks, it should be smooth sailing for the big-name films well int...
