    Why the Oscar Box Office Slump? It's Not What You Think

    When the Academy decided to extend the list of Best Picture contender to up to 10 (the last three years have had nine), one of the goals was to open up the competition to more widely-seen films. The studios have fallen in line, and one result has been more studio films in the mix, particularly some ...

    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...

    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...

    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.
