    'Bad Grandpa' Pulls Young Males, 'Counselor' Flops, '12 Years' Makes Top Ten, NC-17 'Blue' Starts Strong

    Who knew? All it took to bring back the core males MIA from theaters was a film about an 86-year-old. Paramount's "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa" opened to an easy #1 Friday with $12.6 million (including Thursday late shows). Maybe Emmanuelle Riva should have stuck around a little longer after the O...

    It was no surprise when Cannes Palme d'Or winner "Blue is the Warmest Color" earned an NC-17 rating for “explicit sexual content.” Sundance Selects/IFC Films figured that would be the case when they submitted it.

    '12 Years a Slave' Scores Big in Specialty and African-American Theaters, 'All Is Lost' and 'Kill Your Darlings' Start Soft

    The fall awards season went to full blast this weekend with three major festival specialty successes launching their commercial releases. One, Fox Searchlight's "12 Years a Slave," matched the current #1 smash "Gravity" in acclaim and--on a smaller scale at this point--better-than-expected grosses. ...

    Top Ten Box Office: 'Gravity' Force Squashes Newbies 'Fifth Estate,' 'Carrie,' and 'Escape Plan,' Young Audiences Are MIA

    Where did the young audience go? That is the compelling -- and scary -- question for studios as another October weekend falls flat, even with strong turnout from the older demographic. The top ten came in at only $94 million, down from $112 last year, as kids failed to turn out for Sony's disappoint...

    Box Office: 'Gravity' & 'Captain Phillips' Reign Over 'Carrie'

    Specialty Box Office: '12 Years' Gets Off To Strong (But Not Huge) Start

    After a month of essentially non-stop Oscar buzz and critical acclaim building off of its debuts in Telluride and Toronto, Steve McQueen's "12 Years a Slave" hit 19 North American theaters this weekend, and the results were expectedly quite strong.

    'Gravity' Strength Hides Weak Friday Box Office Results; '12 Years a Slave' Starts Well, 'Carrie,' 'All Is Lost' and 'Fifth Estate' Don't

    "Gravity" continued its impressive run with an easy $9 million #1 gross, down just under 30% from last Friday with a likely total yield of another $30 million for the weekend. But this significant number -- which would be a solid first weekend total for any October -- masks an overall continued weak...

    With "Gravity" and now "Captain Phillips" dominating the Top 10, propelled by ticket buyers who often overlap with those who might otherwise pursue more specialized fare, the overall weekend arthouse box office is less than spectacular.
