Box Office Predictions: 'Killing Them Softly' Fights Reruns

Killing Them Softly – Poster (Top)
Studios often don't put a movie out the week after Thanksgiving, and if it wasn't for a shuffle a couple weeks ago, we wouldn't be getting a new movie at all. That's because it's usually considered a dead spot, or dumping ground for bad movies. To wit, last year saw no new wide releases, while in 2010 the only film opening wide was The Warrior's Way. Remember that...

Box Office Roundup: 'Twilight' Tops a Big Numbers Weekend

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 – Edward
With a five day opening for the new pictures, and with a holiday weekend  for the rest, it seems like Thanksgiving in America (at least this year) meant going to the movies. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 still won, but there are good things to say about most of the new pictures and their numbers. Mostly.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 – Bella as a vampire
So it's a holiday five day weekend, and there are three new wide releases. Rise of the Guardians, Red Dawn and Life of Pi. But with The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 netting $140 Million last weekend, even a 70% slide would mean a $40 Million weekend, and it's doubtful that these new pictures...

10 Things We're Grateful For This Thanksgiving (TOP)
Thanksgiving is nearly here, and there are a lot of things to be grateful for in the world of movies and television. We all like to poke fun at Hollywood for some of the crappy movies they invest in, and also some of the unfunny comedies that are still airing on TV, but the truth is we love this stuff. It's why we write about it. Thanksgiving is about reflecting and giving thanks, so...

Some interesting James Bond news broke today—while Skyfall, the 23rd entry into the long-running James Bond franchise, is breaking Bond box office records and will likely go on to be the most successful (in unadjusted dollars) of the series, plans are already underway for the next film.

Box Office Roundup: 'Breaking Dawn' Breaks no Records

Published by

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 – New Vampires
As the Twilight franchise comes to an end the final movie, Breaking Dawn - Part 2, made a crap-ton of money this weekend, but not enough to set any records (it isn't even the highest opening weekend for a Twilight film). Oh well, the makers are going to have to settle for a crap-ton of money.

Box Office Predictions: Say Goodbye to 'Twilight' With Piles of Cash

Team Jacob
The final Twilight film is upon us. At least, maybe. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 is the last of the adaptations of the exceptionally popular franchise, but that doesn't mean a spin off or a reboot might not be on its way in the near future. As we've seen with Star Wars, if there's money to be made, then studios...

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....

When one person comes out and claims that Skyfall is the best Bond film to ever be released, you can't help but raise an eyebrow. But when the reviews began to pour in, maybe there's something to it. For the spy's fiftieth anniversary instead of a retirement party, Bond has made a smashing return and fans couldn't be happier. So what is everyone saying about it? Here's...

'Skyfall' Enjoys Record-Breaking Opening Weekend Overseas

Daniel Craig
While the American box office didn’t exactly set any records over the weekend—unless you count it as a new low (high?) in general audiences apathy towards forward-thinking flicks, seeing as how Cloud Atlas heavily crashed and burned—overseas, it was a different story.  In the European market, there was one name above all:  Bond, James Bond (ugh, forgive me for doing that, it...

Could Idris Elba Be Our Next James Bond?

Right now a couple of popular British characters may be going through a transitional period within the next couple of years. There's been chatter of the 12th Doctor in Doctor Who being played by a woman, and the James Bond franchise may face the same treatment. No, they're not going to change James Bond into a woman (that'd be just plain weird) but Idris Elba may be...

One of the highlights—or biggest eyeroll moments, depending on how you feel about Bond films—of the Skyfall trailer takes places when the back of a train is ripped off and James Bond leaps inside, lands, and coolly adjusts his cufflinks because, well, he’s James Bond and this is all in a day’s work and, besides, it’s his job to look cool.  Well, today, in honor of the 50th...
