Everybody make way for the behemoth known as Argo. When Ben Affleck's latest movie first came out in theaters, every other film that came out before it was put in second place, awards-wise. It helps that Argo is a magnificent flick . Currently Oscar predictors are convinced the picture will have Oscar fame and glory. But will the front runner stay that way...

Bond is back so hard you guys. Skyfall ended up making $90 Million in America over the last couple days, which puts it on track to make more unadjusted money than any previous Bond movie. Quantum of Solace, the current record-holder, topped out at $168, and that sounds pretty doable. In fact, it may be close to that next weekend....

 Paranormal Activity 4 had the lowest grossing opening weekend of any Paranormal sequel, which means that the franchise may yet get a fifth entry, but is either wearing out its welcome, or this entry wasn't marketed as well as its predecessors. Perhaps there's just nowhere left to go. Alex Cross didn't open, so who...

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...

Ben Affleck in Argo
There was an exciting moment there on Saturday, when Sinister managed to be the number one picture for Friday, but when the weekend numbers were added up, that wasn't enough to take the top spot or second place. Those were held by Taken 2 and by Argo. Regardless of the horse race aspects of who came out on top, it...

Ben Affleck in Argo
Ben Affleck's Argo looks like a crazy-awesome, intense semi-comedy. Whatever one expected of the auteur behind Gone Baby Gone and The Town, it's hard to guess this would be the project. During the Carter Administration, an American embassy was raided and six of its employees went into hiding. Ben Affleck's character...
