    Arthouse Audit: Polanski's Provocative 'Venus in Fur' Tops Tepid Specialized Openings

    Films from two established directors (Paul Haggis and Roman Polanski) offered well-hyped new releases this weekend. Polanski's "Venus In Fur" (IFC) (also available on Video on Demand) was the clear leader. Paul Haggis' "Third Person" (Sony Pictures Classics) fared less well, doomed by high profile n...

    Box-Office: Kevin Hart’s ‘Think Like A Man Too’ Is #1, 'Jersey Boys' Can't Hit Any Strong Notes

    Every trade will tell you the success of “Think Like A Man Too” is because of social media buzz. I just thought it was a little guy named Kevin Hart and an audience that is constantly underserved. I’m going to go with the latter. Hart is one of the biggest African-American stars in the world right n...

    Box Office Top Ten: 'Think Like a Man Too' Takes Number One, 'Jersey Boys' Draws Seniors on Soft Summer Weekend

    The studios have skewed their summer releases around the World Cup, which is taking a bite out of the box office. So this weekend's new releases are aimed at domestic audiences; two films are likely to do more than the usual amount of their business in the U.S. The result was a mixed bag. Leading th...

    Sony Sequels 'Think Like a Man Too' and '22 Jump Street' Dominate Mixed Friday Box Office

    Compared to last year's numbers, Friday's domestic box office took the sharpest overall drop of 2014, with no new tentpoles opening because of the ongoing World Cup -- and in anticipation of next week's "Transformers" juggernaut. And since summertime release dates are always created with an eye on i...

    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...

    Box Office Top Ten: So Far Comedy, Family Fare and Fox Dominate the Summer

    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

    Studios played it safe this weekend opposite the start of the World Cup--which is more damaging to overall box office internationally--by debuting two sequels domestically. Both the well-reviewed "22 Jump Street" and "How to Train Your Dragon 2" look headed to over $50 million for the weekend, a rar...
