    Indie Box Office Preview: How Big Is 'Boyhood' Going To Be?

    After a big weekend of openers last weekend, the specialty market is slowing down a bit for Independence Day weekend, with indie box office-interested eyes likely more fixated on how "Begin Again" and "Snowpiercer" manage in their first weekends of expansion (both have the makings of breakout hits -...

    BOI Projected Weekend Top 10: "Apes" Run Wild, Midwest/Northeast Storms Should Lift Family Titles

    "Apes" and the Doppler Radar should be the box office buzz words this coming weekend as Fox's "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" will certainly extend Caesar's reign and a weekend chock full of severe storms in the midwest and northeast look to bring a much needed boost to the industry.

    "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" Off And Running With $4 Million Thursday Late Shows

    Although it's not in the stratosphere of early summer tentpole superhero titles, "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" opened to a respectable, though hardly overwhelming, $4 million in its Thursday night late shows last night.

    BOI WEEKLY: Fox/Warners Toe-To-Toe For Box Office Market Share Lead

    An influx of titles ("Edge Of Tomorrow", "Jersey Boys", "Tammy") has allowed Warners to (temporarily) catch Fox as the two currently sit atop the market share leaderboard. But the gang in Burbank should enjoy it now as a bunch of apes should return Fox to the top of the box office mountain by this ...

    Top Ten Box Office Takeaways: Holiday Box Office Suffers Worst Drop of the Year

    This fourth of July weekend, the box office, led yet again by Michael Bay's latest "Transformers," suffered a serious collapse. The Top Ten grossed $113 million. That is $107 million less than last year (when the 4th fell on a Thursday). It's worse than that -- no June or July weekend has grossed th...

    Arthouse Audit: 'Life Itself' Leads New Releases While 'Begin Again' and 'Snowpiercer' Show Life

    Independence Day weekend doesn't tend to be a big specialized release date. In the last six years, only "The Way, Way Back" in 2013 stands out as a significant new release over the holiday. So it isn't surprising that the pickings were modest this year.

    Box-Office: ‘Transformers 4’ Is The First Movie Of The Summer To Repeat At #1, On A Non-Spectacular July 4th Weekend

    Uh oh, the box office is down about 45% from last year’s July 4th weekend. The sky is falling! OK, maybe not so much, but a malaise has certainly kicked in with audiences that aren’t connecting with films in a major way. This time last year, the July 4th weekend sold $220 million worth of tickets (a...

    Holiday Box Office Fireworks Fizzle as Only 'Transformers' Shows Much Spark

    Though it took a big second Friday drop, "Transformers: Age of Extinction" had no trouble dominating an anemic Fourth of July box office. How weak was the day? The three new openers combined only grossed about $1 million more than last year's holiday opener "The Lone Ranger" on the same Friday.
