    Super Bowl Weekend Saved by Strong Holdovers 'Ride Along' and 'Frozen;' 'Labor Day' Opens in Seventh Place

    Despite two new disappointing films (Focus's "That Awkward Moment" and Paramount's "Labor Day"), holdovers sustained this typically low-grossing Super Bowl weekend.

    Specialty Box Office: Penn & Teller Doc 'Tim's Vermeer' Starts Strong; Oscar Contenders Keep Cashing In

    Even though it ended up being snubbed for a best documentary Oscar nomination, the show must got on for Penn & Teller's "Tim's Vermeer," and it did so to the tune of a healthy $57,873 from 4 theaters, averaging $14,468. That bodes well for the Sony Pictures Classics release as it expands.

    Friday Box Office: 'Ride Along' Reigns Again, 'Awkward Moment' Connects, 'Labor Day' Lags

    For theaters, Super Bowl Weekend is sometimes an early Valentine's Day, as the week's new releases tend to have a rom-com theme. This year is no different, with both new wide releases -- "That Awkward Moment" (Focus) and "Labor Day" (Paramount) -- meant as counter-programming against the football ho...

    Friday Box Office: 'Ride Along' & 'Lone Survivor' Trump Sole New Wide Release 'I, Frankenstein'

    Two Universal films ("Ride Along" and "Lone Survivor") beat back "I, Frankenstein" (Lionsgate), the sole new wide release.
