  Monsters University may have topped the box office, but the winner this weekend is everyone, as the top four films did over $200 Million. World War Z smashed past expectations, while Man of Steel sank quickly, even as it passed $200 Million domestically. It was a big weekend for a non-holiday.

In what is likely to be a surprise to no one, Man of Steel was the number one film in America this weekend. That it did over $100 Million, and that it did so easily is also not all that surprising. It is the latest superhero movie. Still, this could have gone much, much worse.

Weekend Box Office Roundup: 'The Purge' Surges to Top Slot

Published by

The Purge 5
The Purge supposedly cost $3 Million to make, which -- by Hollywood math -- means the film was in profit sometime on Friday. The truth of profitability is likely to be far more complicated, but there is no way this isn't a gigantic win, and that the film is already setting up a sequel makes all the sense in the world. The Internship? Much...

The Purge
Last weekend showed the start of a summer slump, which should end next Friday with the release of Man of Steel (which is already tracking to open over $100 Million dollars). This means it's a good weekend to release something like The Purge, which is a low budget, high concept horror film, and maybe it was a good idea to open The...

Weekend Box Office Roundup: 'Now You See Me' Beats 'After Earth'

NOW YOU SEE ME
On paper, who would think that Will Smith could be beat by a movie about magicians that starred that guy from The Social Network? Well, that's exactly what happened. Both were behind Fast and Furious 6, but this is big blow to the Will Smith dynasty. No question.

Box Office Predictions: 'After Earth' Will Chase 'Fast and Furious 6'

After Earth
We're a long ways away from the glory days of Will Smith's box office run. In fact it was over fifteen years ago when Smith saved the world in Independence Day and busted aliens in Men in Black. They launched him into the A-list, and he was once considered "the last movie star," but a prolonged absence from the screen, and with huge changes...

Now You See Me: Movie Review

NOW YOU SEE ME
There's nothing quite like a good heist movie, and if you can throw in a bit of sleigh-of-hand all the better. As a film, Now You See Me seems to know it's not supposed to be much more than a good time, and on that count it delivers. And it raises a perfectly valid question: Why aren't more professional magicians bank robbers?
