Published by

a million ways to die in the west
Seth MacFarlane has been bringing a bunch of wonderfully raunchy humor back into the mainstream. Now that's not to say it ever disappeared; it was just a little dormant after the teen sex comedies had their run in early 2000. Thanks to the success of Ted, we're getting an additional dose of raunchy MacFarlane comedy on the big screen with his latest, A Million Ways To...

This has been a huge pivot point for movies in how they're made and distributed. 2012 was the year where the film industry turned its back on 35 millimeter film (which has been the standard for well over a century), with digital projection no longer just an option but the standard. At the same time a filmmaker like Paul Thomas Anderson shot a movie on 70mm - a format that hadn't been used...

Dark Knight Rises
Universal, who've had a number of misfires this summer (Battleship, Savages), may have won this weekend by moving The Bourne Legacy to August 10. Originally the film was going to open on Friday, and here we've seen what happened: The Dark Knight Rises did better business than the...

'Prometheus,' 'Ted,' And 'American Reunion' All Receiving Sequels

Published by

prometheus
While most films released this summer don’t really need a sequel (unless you count The Amazing Spider-Man, which needs a sequel simply for Sony to maintain rights to the franchise), Ridley Scott’s Prometheus may be one of the only films that could possibly be enriched a sequel to explain away some glaring plot holes/ character motivations/ muddled questions.  So...

Dark Knight Rises
There was word that a good quarter of the movie-going public were scared because of the shooting that happened last weekend. So scared they probably wouldn't go to movies this weekend. Looking at the numbers, it shows. Looking at headline news, it appears their worries were unfounded.

There's a pall over this weekend's box office because the release of The Dark Knight Rises was marred in tragedy. It's hard to say if the events from the midnight screening hurt the film's grosses, but thinking about that is ghoulish. Here are the numbers.

This summer took its time launching its kids films (partly because the summer season for movies starts before most kids get out of school), but we've seen some winners in the bunch, and Ice Age: Continental Drift took this weekend. But - as I said Thursday - it gets a week until Batman, and this feels like the calm before the big movie.

Box Office Predictions: 'Ice Age' Makes Some Money

Ice Age Continental Drift
You know what happens next weekend, right? Yup, The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters, and often when there's an absolute must-see, there's the possibility it will lay waste to everything in its path. That's what happen last time there was a Batman movie, so Fox - which has already released Ice Age: Continental Drift internationally - is hoping...

Box Office Predictions: 'The Amazing Spider-Man' Beats All

Published by

Andrew Garfield
Over the past two days The Amazing Spider-Man has already grossed nearly $60 Million stateside. Calling it the weekend winner doesn't take much work. It's going up against Katy Perry: Part of Me, and Savages and if it can't take both it's because it completely collapsed.

Box Office Roundup: 'Ted' Takes it

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.

Ted: Movie Review

Ted - Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlane
Ted is Seth MacFarlane unleashed. The writer, actor, and producer is making an R-rated splash with his feature directorial debut.
