One of the summer’s best/only comedies hits home video this week, along with The Little Mermaid, and a number of classics. It’s not a bad week for collectors, that’s for sure.

Box Office Roundup: 'Oblivion' Rides to the Top Spot

With one picture opening this weekend, it seemed inevitable that Oblivion would nab the top spot. And -- no surprise -- that's exactly what happened. But summer's not so far away, so it's a smaller victory in the scheme of things.

Box Office Predictions: 'Oblivion' Obliviates

When there's only one movie opening in wide release during a weekend (and it stars Tom Cruise), it's not hard to guess what's going to be the number one picture come Sunday. 42. Again (just kidding).

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

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...

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

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...

Box Office Roundup: 'Croods' Tops, But 'Olympus' is No Slouch

Though last year this weekend saw the release of The Hunger Games - which made a boatload of money by itself - the same weekend a year later proved to do pretty good without a gigantic blockbuster. Not only did The Croods open better than expected, but Olympus has Fallen bucked the trends of recent action movies and...

Box Office Predictions: 'The Croods' Takes Top

Published by

Though often there are films that succeed because of their inherent draw, just as often a film can win by being in the right place at the right time. Though Oz: The Great and Powerful was kids friendly, the only animated movie in recent weeks was Escape From Planet Earth. So The Croods has a very good shot of making...

DreamWorks Animation: From 'Antz' to 'The Croods' (and Some 'Shrek' in...

We're all familiar with the story of animation powerhouses such as Disney/Pixar, but a lot of the time most people don't really recognize what other animation houses are churning out one big hit after another. With the release of The Croods, we'd like to run down how DreamWorks Animation has evolved in the animation front since its beginning.

We also have a bunch of new images from movies...

'The Croods' Trailer: A Stone Age (Not 'Ice Age') Adventure

Published by

The Croods
DreamWorks Animation's The Croods is not a rip off. Sure, it concerns a prehistoric community fleeing what looks to be the start of a new era, but it stars people, not animals (though there are animals), and there's no ice. Totally different.

Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds Star in The Croods

Cage and Nicolas cast in The Croods
Nicolas Cage and Ryan Reynolds will butt heads in the DreamWorks animated comedy The Croods. Set in prehistoric times, Cage will voice Crug, a tribal leader who ushers his people after an earthquake destroys their home and Reynolds' character will be the modern nomad who scares Crug out of his old ways. This sounds sort of interesting, right?
