    Specialty Box Office: 'The Wind Rises' Opens In Shadow of 'LEGO'; 'Gloria' and 'The Great Beauty' Hit Milestones

    While a certain "LEGO" movie continued to dominate the studio box office (taking in a truly massive $183 million after 3 weekends), the specialty box office saw a much smaller animated film debut in its shadow.

    Friday Box Office: 'Lego' Saves the Day, as Audiences Aren't Taken With '3 Days to Kill' or 'Pompeii'

    "The LEGO Movie" (Warner Bros.) was an easy #1 yesterday, headed for a third straight week in the top position. This will be the second time in this still-early year that a film led for three straight weeks ("Ride Along" was the first). It's a relatively rare achievement -- neither of 2013's top two...

    Box Office Top Ten: Audiences Still Love 'Lego' and Kevin Hart, Snub Colin Farrell

    Looking at the Box Office Top Ten this week, you'd think we were still in the 1980s. Four new openers include three remakes of '80s hits, and another adapts a major novel from the decade. Another familiar pop culture artifact from the period -- Legos -- returned as the top film this weekend, as Warn...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Lego Movie' Blocks Out Newcomers, But 'About Last Night' Is Still Strong

    When your options are a tepidly received “RoboCop” remake and a Valentine’s Day-themed romance movie that only the teenage girl die-hards seemed interested in (“Endless Love”), is it any wonder “The Lego Movie” blocked out the competition this weekend? That said, performing quite well was the “About...

    Friday Box Office: 'LEGO Movie' Bests Valentine's Day Opener 'About Last Night'

    With Valentine's Day falling on a Friday this year, three new films aimed at the dating crowd opened to varying results, but at the end of the night none quite topped the list. "The LEGO Movie" (Warner Bros.) stayed in front by a tiny margin (grossing $13,030,000) on its way to an easy full holiday ...

    Arthouse Audit: Niche Docs Lead Specialized Openers, Oscar Contenders Tally

    Art-house exhibitors eagerly await the Fox Searchlight stateside release of Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel," which premiered in Berlin to wide acclaim, but it's still a month away. In the meantime, award season releases continue to show uneven results, although non-nominated "Gloria" is ex...

    Specialty Box Office: 'Afternoon' Delights New York Audiences While Oscar Contenders Hang In There

    While the "LEGO" movie exploded at the studio box office (to the incredible tune of nearly $70 million), the specialty box office had a comparatively slow weekend: "Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil le Clercq" -- a documentary chronicling the tragic fate of a 1950s NYC Ballet prodigy -- was definitely b...

    Box Office: Everyone Went To See 'The Lego Movie' But Your Dad Saw 'Monuments Men'

    Call it the power of nostalgia, and an indicator of just how much those plastic bricks are a part of popular culture. Everyone went to see Warner Bros.

    Friday Box Office: 'Lego Movie' Has Robust Opening Day, 'Monuments Men' in Distant Second Place

    Despite competition from the tape-delayed opening Olympics ceremony, box office was strong yesterday, with "The Lego Movie" (Warner Bros.) taking in a strong $17,140,000 ahead of what is likely to be a very strong matinee-fueled weekend, though not record breaking for February. "Lego" looks to be am...
