    SPECIALTY BOX OFFICE: 'Trip to Italy' and 'Frank' Best of New Sundance-Premiered Openers as 'Life After Beth' Lags

    Three high-profile Sundance 2014 films top the grosses for this week's specialized openers. Comedy "The Trip to Italy" (IFC) and music drama "Frank" (Magnolia) fared best in theaters only--from distributors who often use day-and-date Video on Demand avenues. A third, zombie flick "Life After Beth" (...

    Box-Office: ‘Ninja Turtles’ Repeats At #1, ‘Expendables 3,’ ‘The Giver’ & ‘Let’s Be Cops’ All Flop

    Let’s recap since we didn’t really do a proper box-office report last weekend (aside from this brief report).

    'Expendables 3' Off To Middling Start w/$875,000 From Thursday Late Shows, 'Giver' Also Underwhelming

    Perhaps the 7pm late shows last night were past most of the stars', and therefore their fans', bedtimes but "Expendables 3" limped to a late show gross of only $875,000, barely topping Weinstein's "The Giver" and falling short of "Let's Be Cops" late shows of $1.2 million on Tuesday night.

    Can "Turtles" and "Guardians" Hold Off Sly & Co. For a Box Office Repeat???

    There's a good chance that, for the first time this summer, we won't have a new opener crack the top two at the box office. Although "Expendables", "Let's Be Cops" and "The Giver" are on pace to open to three day numbers in the high teens or low 20's, it may not be enough to unseat Mikey, Donnie, R...

    PREVIEW & PREDICTIONS: Octogenarian Onslaught, Fake Fuzz And "Giver"'s Gain Highlight This Week's New Releases

    Ok so they're not actually octogenarians (although I wouldn't mind checking Sly's birth certificate, just to be sure) but they are "The Expendables 3" and they're back for more mirth and mayhem. In addition, the latest stab at the young adult novel crowd, "The Giver" debuts, as does Fox's fake-fuzz...

    Paramount Sets 2016 Release Date For 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Sequel After Massive Opening Weekend

    Never again will August be seen as the summer dumping ground for movies that studios have little confidence in. Last week, "Guardians Of The Galaxy" proved that all bets were off with a record breaking debut, and this past weekend "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" showed that August audiences are ready...

    For the second straight weekend, a high-profile festival acquisition opened to mixed results, as CBS Films' Daniel Radcliffe vehicle "What If" struggled to find significant traction in ten markets before it moves wider next week.
