Box Office Roundup: No 'Need for Speed'

Published by

Well, that didn't happen. Need for Speed seemed liked it should have been a contender, with fast cars, and hot stars like Aaron Paul. But audiences were warned off by critics, and the advertising (it seems) didn't hook them. Perhaps it's partly because the film had little appeal to Breaking Bad fans, but the film came in third this weekend,...

Box Office Predictions: 'Need For Speed' Only Moderate

Published by

March has become a big money month for the studios, but this weekend will not be one of the biggest. Need for Speed is opening, and it's a functional car chase/car crash movie that hasn't connected with the Fast and Furious crowd in the way that was hoped for. But it may have enough muscle under the hood to open in the top spot.

Box Office Roundup: 'Smaug' Covers the Top of the Charts

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug took the top of the of the box office this weekend, which is no surprise. It's a big movie and part of one of the most successful franchises in cinema. Who would guess that Orlando Bloom would star in seven of the biggest movies of all time? Especially after Elizabethtown?

Guillermo Del Toro has finally found a replacement for the leading role in his upcoming thriller Crimson Peak. Late last month, the filmmaker lost Benedict Cumberbatch, but now the awesome Tom Hiddleson has stepped in to replace him. More details on that below. Also, the first trailer for Richard Ayoade's The Double, starring Jesse Eisenberg, has hit the web....

After a long holiday weekend, we’re finally get some decent releases on DVD and Blu-ray this week. Many of which are titles from earlier this year which failed to rouse much interest, but still, there’s Spring Breakers.

Box Office Roundup: 'Evil Dead' Swallows the Top Spot

Published by

Jane Levy
Normally April is one of the weakest box office months of the year, as the season take a breath between the March hits and the big summer movies that start the first week of May. But not this year. The Evil Dead remake leads a crowded field of strong performers this weekend, and with Oblivion and Pain and Gain, we...

Box Office Predictions: 'Evil Dead' Summons the Top Spot

Published by

Lou Taylor Pucci in TriStar Pictures' horror EVIL DEAD.
It's hard to want to talk numbers after the recent announcement of Roger Ebert's passing. He was as important to modern film culture as any living filmmaker. This weekend brings Evil Dead and the 3D reissue of Jurassic Park, but there will likely be a pall over this weekend as cineastes remember one of the most famous critics to ever discuss...

Box Office Roundup: 'Joe' Tops the Charts, 'The Host' Flops Out

Published by

It's no surprise that G.I. Joe: Retaliation topped the box office, it was going to make some money when it was released. The big thing for the movie is that it's already popular overseas, where it made an additional $80 Million, and that puts its grand total near $130 Million (which is the reported budget). Which means Paramount absolutely did the right thing with the...

Box Office Predictions: Yo, 'Joe' Tops BO

Published by

If G.I. Joe Retaliation had opened on its original launch date of June 29, 2012, we'd probably have already forgotten about it by  now. It's also possible it would have been seen as weak next to Ted, would have fell hard in the face of The Amazing Spider-Man and would have died by the time The Dark...

We’re starting to get some of the Fall’s Oscar Pictures hitting home video, one of the most interesting documentaries of the year, and one classic Walt Disney film from the vaults. Not a bad weekend for home video.

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN-PART 2
It’s that time of year again—no, not the Academy Awards nominations (that’s tomorrow); rather, it’s time to find out who’s up for a Razzie.  In a time-honored tradition (well, since, 1980), the Razzie nominations, honoring the absolute worst films of the year, are announced the day before the Oscar contenders.  And the 33rd annual Razzie Awards, pinpointing the...

Box Office Predictions: 'Paranormal' Activities Takes the Weekend

Published by

Paranormal Activity 4
This weekend shows that Paramount still remembers how to do horror sequels as they've dashed off three quickie horror sequels in the last three years to capitalize on the success of Paranormal Activity. It reminds of their success with Friday the 13th films (though they were much more embarrassed of that franchise). And then there's Tyler...

Alex Cross: Movie Review

Published by

Alex Cross Movie Review
Tyler Perry has taken a break from writing and directing to star in Rob Cohen's Alex Cross. It's the big screen adaptation of one of James Patterson's most popular characters. Unfortunately, the film sells the source material short. Alex Cross is nothing to write home about.

Tyler Perry's 'Alex Cross' Is Already Getting A Sequel Despite Being Tyler...

Alex Cross
Despite the fact that it won’t be released until tomorrow, it has an abysmally low 27% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and the trailer was just awful, Alex Cross—yes, the serial killer film starring Tyler Perry as a cop pushed to the limit in his hunt for a madman (because that movie has never, ever been made before)—is already set to get a sequel.

Box Office Roundup: 'Ted' Takes it

Published by

Ted - Party Girls
This weekend was about counter-programming, but both Ted and Magic Mike opened bigger and stronger than many of the summer's supposed blockbusters. Ted exceeded all expectations, as is a monster hit, which paves the way for more Seth MacFarlane movies. Timing is everything.

Box Office Predictions: How 'Magic' is 'Mike'?

Magic Mike
So, this weekend would look to be the quiet before the storm. Next week is dominated by Spider-Man (Amazing or not), then comes the Ice Age, and then a little film called The Dark Knight Rises. But Warner Brothers has smartly targeted women for Magic Mike, and it went from little awareness...

Tyler Perry Wants to Make a Science Fiction Film

Published by

Tyler Perry
Tyler Perry has built a franchise out of his name. Every film he's made has turned a profit, but it's partly because they're done on the cheap, and he knows he has a core fanbase. Later this year he'll see if he can cross over into the mainstream with the action film Alex Cross, and now it looks like he wants to stretch even further by making a science fiction...

Alex Cross
Let’s start with the movie’s tag line:  “Don’t Ever Cross… Alex Cross.”  When that’s the best a film can come up with, you know you’re in trouble.  Further, when the film is a reboot of the Alex Cross franchise (Kiss the Girls, Along Came a Spider) that replaces Morgan Freeman with Tyler Perry (a.k.a., the guy who writes, directs, and stars...
