    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. Also in the Top 10 is "Veronica Mars" (Warner Bros.)...

    A three-way race for the weekend #1 started off with the DreamWorks video game adaptation "Need for Speed" (distributed by Buena Vista) on top with $6.64 million.
