    Arthouse Audit: 'The Rover' and 'Signal' Open Soft; Sundancers 'Ivory Tower' and 'Hellion' OK

    Fresh from Cannes, both "The Rover" and wider release "How to Train Your Dragon 2" opened this weekend. Just a year ago enterprising A24 opened "The Bling Ring," but the comparison ends there. A24's "The Rover" opened to only a fraction of the initial returns that Sofia Coppola's film received, and,...

    Box-Office: ‘22 Jump Street’ Is The 2nd Highest R-Rated Comedy Opening Ever With $60 Million

    There’s been talk of a slow box-office this year. Indeed as of early June, despite big grosses for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” “Godzilla” and “X-Men: Days Of Future Past,” the box-office was down 12% from 2013. And it has been relatively soft: Tom Cruise’s “Edge Of Tomorrow” vehicle failed to open h...

    Hollywood front-loaded the summer with big-budget actioners to get ahead of the month-long World Cup, which provides massive international competition. But this weekend two sequels, Sony comedy "22 Jump Street" and Dreamworks Animation's "How to Train Your Dragon 2" scored well stateside. And both i...

    Friday Box Office: '22 Jump Street' and 'Train Your Dragon 2' Both Headed for $50 Million-Plus Weekends

    Indie Box Office Preview: Will Robert Pattinson Finally Get An Indie Hit With 'The Rover'?

    Outside of the "Twilight" films, Robert Pattinson has been getting some consistent and impressive work from independent filmmakers, from David Cronenberg to Werner Herzog. Yet he's so far been unable to be a box office draw in that context, with his last two indies -- "Cosmopolis" and "Bel Ami" -- ...

    Dreamworks' Dragon Due To Dominate Box Office While Jump Street A Shoo-In For Second

    After misses such as "Mr. Peabody And Sherman" and "Turbo", Dreamworks is back on course, with the stars lining up for "How To Train Your Dragon 2". So far it's been a banner year for family titles and I see no reason why the Katzenberg Kids can't continue that trend with Dragon.

    Warner Bros. Studio Post-Robinov: Do They Need a Strategy Reboot?
