Box Office Predictions: It's 'Scary' Out There for '42'

Published by

An inspirational true story versus hacky "remember this" jokes. On merits, 42 should be the clear winner this weekend, but Scary Movie 5 gives ample evidence that merit is generally not what gets people into theaters these days.

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

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...

G.I. Joe: Retaliation
After being taken out of the running by Paramount last summer and getting delayed due to numerous reshoots and a lengthy 3D post-conversion process, G.I. Joe: Retaliation had all the earmarks of a Dead On Arrival film that would eventually make a few bucks with franchise/ action fans and then die a quick death.  But then the film opened hard and strong this weekend which, coupled...

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

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...

Guilty Until Proven Innocent: The Top Five Best Name-Clearing Movies

It's slightly painful but still exciting to see your main character struggle to prove his/her innocence in a high-octane thriller of sorts. You know from the start that they're not guilty, but you follow them along the story as they try their best to wipe their name clean from whatever charge it may be. Unfortunately for Roadblock and the rest of his small crew in G.I....

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...

When G.I. Joe: Retaliation got pushed from June of last year to March of this year, one of the elements that people thought might be changed was the role of Channing Tatum. When he did G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Hollywood was attempting to make him the next big thing but it hadn't taken yet. And so when Retaliation...

G.I. Joe: Retaliation
G.I. Joe: Retaliation, the sequel no one wanted to the original film no one liked, is almost upon us.  And seeing as how it was set for a June 29, 2012 release date before being held back to March 28th of this year so Paramount could slather it with 3D effects and add a massive amount of reshoots, it should be really, really great!  And now that the release date is looming, here are...

'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' Previews its Ninja Fight

Published by

G.I. Joe: Retaliation
We might be skeptical about the eventual release of G.I. Joe: Retaliation, but it's only because Paramount delayed the film at the last minute, and claimed it was to post-convert the film to 3D, not to do extensive reshoots. From all word they didn't touch it much, so maybe it's not that bad? The latest footage looks fun, so there's that.

'G.I. Joe Retaliation' Gets a New Trailer

Published by

G.I. Joe Retaliation
Originally scheduled to be a June 2012 release, G.I. Joe: Retaliation was bumped from this summer and moved to March 2013 to be retooled and converted to 3D. Now there's a new trailer to help sell its Spring launch, and it features a little more Channing Tatum, about the same amount of Dwayne Johnson, and a touch more Bruce Willis. Check it out.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation
G.I. Joe: Retaliation was originally set to hit theaters this past summer, where it was on track to be one of the mega-blockbusters of 2012.  Instead, Paramount pulled the film just one month before release—after already shelling out a ton on the film’s advertising campaign—to convert the film to 3D (translation: the film is terrible and would no way have stayed afloat in...

Anyone who was looking forward to seeing G.I. Joe: Retaliation this summer knows they have a lot of disappointment on their hands, as Paramount bumped the film from its June 29th release date to March 2013 (also, the fact that they were looking forward to the sequel at all raises some issues).   While the studio claims the move is due to a last minute decision for a 3D...

Summer 2012 is beginning to feel like a game of “release date musical chairs."   After Paramount’s surprise move to push back action sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation from June 29th to 2013, Universal has decided to make hay while the proverbial sun shines by shuffling Seth McFarlane‘s R-rated comedy Ted as well.  Ted has now...

'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' Pushed Back To 2013 For 3D Conversion

G.I. Joe: Retaliation
Surprising news today: Paramount has decided to push G.I. Joe: Retaliation's June 29th release date back a whole nine months. They've probably realized that in a summer filled with Avengers, bats and cats, and Ridley Scott's aliens, their toy-based action film didn't stand a chance. Or perhaps it was Battleship's box office failure...
