    '12 Years a Slave' Scores Big in Specialty and African-American Theaters, 'All Is Lost' and 'Kill Your Darlings' Start Soft

    The fall awards season went to full blast this weekend with three major festival specialty successes launching their commercial releases. One, Fox Searchlight's "12 Years a Slave," matched the current #1 smash "Gravity" in acclaim and--on a smaller scale at this point--better-than-expected grosses. ...

    Top Ten Box Office: 'Gravity' Force Squashes Newbies 'Fifth Estate,' 'Carrie,' and 'Escape Plan,' Young Audiences Are MIA

    Where did the young audience go? That is the compelling -- and scary -- question for studios as another October weekend falls flat, even with strong turnout from the older demographic. The top ten came in at only $94 million, down from $112 last year, as kids failed to turn out for Sony's disappoint...

    Box Office: 'Gravity' & 'Captain Phillips' Reign Over 'Carrie'

    In spite of being in its third weekend and with Halloween right around the corner, "Gravity" took the number one spot, with "Captain Phillips" following right behind, beating out a gang of newcomers: horror remake "Carrie," Schwarzenegger and Stallone actioner "Escape Plan," and the Julian Assange s...

    Specialty Box Office: '12 Years' Gets Off To Strong (But Not Huge) Start

    After a month of essentially non-stop Oscar buzz and critical acclaim building off of its debuts in Telluride and Toronto, Steve McQueen's "12 Years a Slave" hit 19 North American theaters this weekend, and the results were expectedly quite strong.

    'Gravity' Strength Hides Weak Friday Box Office Results; '12 Years a Slave' Starts Well, 'Carrie,' 'All Is Lost' and 'Fifth Estate' Don't

    "Gravity" continued its impressive run with an easy $9 million #1 gross, down just under 30% from last Friday with a likely total yield of another $30 million for the weekend. But this significant number -- which would be a solid first weekend total for any October -- masks an overall continued weak...

    How Will '12 Years a Slave' Play Out at the Box Office?

    The folks here at Indiewire have made our opinion of Steve McQueen's racially-charged true story "12 Years a Slave" pretty clear: We love it. Chief Film Critic Eric Kohn gave the film an A+ after its premiere at the Telluride Film Festival, saying "McQueen turns a topic rendered distant by history i...

    Arthouse Audit: Action Among Wider Release Films as Specialty Box Office Lags, 'Enough Said' Tops Fall Specialty Films

    With "Gravity" and now "Captain Phillips" dominating the Top 10, propelled by ticket buyers who often overlap with those who might otherwise pursue more specialized fare, the overall weekend arthouse box office is less than spectacular. Several independent releases outside the normal definition of s...

    'Captain Phillips' Opens Well Against Mighty 'Gravity' at Number One

    Two well-reviewed, high-quality films -- "Gravity" and "Captain Phillips" -- lead the Top 10 this weekend with impressive numbers. The studios, building on such late 2012 successes as "Argo," "Lincoln" and "The Life of Pi," are continuing to push a small number of awards-targeted quality projects at...

    Specialty Box Office: Newcomers Drowned Out By 'Gravity' and 'Phillips'; Panetlion's Spanish Language Duo Keep It Coming

    As the studio box office continued to soar thanks to intelligent, Oscar-favored fare like "Gravity" (down just 21% in weekend two) and "Captain Phillips" (Tom Hanks' best opening in a half-decade), for once the smart options weren't necessarily at the art house. Which is perhaps felt in the fact tha...

    Box Office: 'Gravity' Stays In Top Spot With 2nd Best Hold Of 2013; 'Captain Phillips' Ships In 2nd With $26 Million

    This past weekend saw two heavyweights go head-to-head. In one corner, an original sci-fi pic with phenomenal special effects and Sandra Bullock lost in space (read our review here). In the other, another American darling, Tom Hanks, gets captured by Somali pirates (our review). Both are getting the...

    Weekend B.O. Oct. 11-13 (The ‘Captain’ Can’t Beat ‘Gravity’)

    As expected, Gravity once again came in No. 1 this weekend with $44 million. But what is even more remarkable is that the usual box office drop off from the first week to the second for the film was only a mere 21%.
