    A History of Lars Von Trier at the Box Office

    The director is known for many things, but box office success in North America is probably not one of them. That said, von Trier has managed a few very respectable grosses over the years, most notably from 1996's "Breaking The Waves," 2000's "Dancer in the Dark," and 2011's "Melancholia," all of wh...

    Box-Office: It's No 'Hunger Games,' But ‘Divergent’ Kicks Off Its Sci-Fi YA Franchise With A Healthy Number 1 Slot

    To paraphrase a salient tweet from L.A. Times writer Ben Fritz, It’s no “Hunger Games” or “Twilight,” but with a solid $56.7 million opening, the sci-fi YA adaptation “Divergent” won’t be a “Vampire Academy” or “Mortal Instruments”-type flop either. And yes, they tend to come in those black and whit...

    Arthouse Audit: 'Bad Words,' 'Enemy' and 'Le Week-End' Best of Modest Openers

    As the post-Oscar surge abates, a wide range of new releases opened this week. They fell far short of the total of last week's massive opener "The Grand Budapest Hotel" (Fox Searchlight) which expanded this weekend to reach #8 in only 66 theaters.
