The biggest releases this week is one of this winter’s biggest Oscar also-rans and one of January’s biggest hits. On top of which, Universal is releasing some great catalog titles.

'Ride Along 2' Is Now Happening With Kevin Hart And Ice Cube

Published by

Ride Along
Ride Along—the action-comedy starring Kevin Hart and Ice Cube, has already scored $120 million at the box office, setting a January box office record and all but securing the bankability (at least for the time being) of a Ride Along franchise.  So it should come as no surprise that as early as April of last year, Universal Pictures was developing a...

Box Office Roundup: 'The LEGO Movie' is Likely to Start a Franchise

Published by

The LEGO Movie
There was a moment on Saturday where -- when The LEGO Movie did $17 Million -- people thought the film wouldn't get to $60 Million. Yeah, those people were wrong, and the Chris Miller/Phil Lord directed movie made nearly seventy million, which means if we hear word of a LEGO Movie 2 in the next couple days, it's because the film is likely to make over two...

Box Office Predictions: 'The LEGO Movie' Busts Out

The LEGO Movie is set to have a huge opening, but -- alas -- the record will not be broken for the biggest February opening weekend. That title is currently held by The Passion of the Christ, which did $83 Million. Still, it's going to do huge numbers for what's often one of the weakest months of the year.

Weekend Box Office: 'Ride Along' Tops the Charts for Third Week

Ride Along
     Say what you will about the film itself, Ride Along is a huge, huge hit, and Universal was right to start working on a sequel months ago.

So this is a January weekend, old school style. I've talked before about how January used to be the dumping grounds season, but we've recently seen some smartly released films do bang-up business in the first month of the year. Where I, Frankenstein is a perfect example of the sort of dreck genre films we're used to.

Box Office Roundup: 'Ride Along' Rides Over Competition

Sorry Paramount, you don't have a franchise reboot on your hands. It turns out that January is a good time to release a certain kind of movie, and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit isn't one of them. It is a good time for Ride Along, which now has the highest opening ever for a January picture.

January has become a strangely competitive season these days. It used to be that anything released in January was considered crap, but now... they might not be the best films in the world, but they're not all exploitation and misfires. Studios now make films specifically for January. That's a huge shift.

There are exactly two official stills for Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, which suggests that Paramount thinks they're going to make a quick buck on the film, but have no interest in a heavy push. They will make money, that's for sure. These films are usually done for cheap, run about ninety minutes, and have solid opening weekends and die a quick death. There's no reason to...
