    Arthouse Audit: 'Life Itself' Leads New Releases While 'Begin Again' and 'Snowpiercer' Show Life

    Independence Day weekend doesn't tend to be a big specialized release date. In the last six years, only "The Way, Way Back" in 2013 stands out as a significant new release over the holiday. So it isn't surprising that the pickings were modest this year.

    Box-Office: ‘Transformers 4’ Is The First Movie Of The Summer To Repeat At #1, On A Non-Spectacular July 4th Weekend

    Uh oh, the box office is down about 45% from last year’s July 4th weekend. The sky is falling! OK, maybe not so much, but a malaise has certainly kicked in with audiences that aren’t connecting with films in a major way.

    Holiday Box Office Fireworks Fizzle as Only 'Transformers' Shows Much Spark

    Though it took a big second Friday drop, "Transformers: Age of Extinction" had no trouble dominating an anemic Fourth of July box office. How weak was the day?

    After a big weekend of openers last weekend, the specialty market is slowing down a bit for Independence Day weekend, with indie box office-interested eyes likely more fixated on how "Begin Again" and "Snowpiercer" manage in their first weekends of expansion (both have the makings of breakout hits -...
