    Indie Box Office Preview: How Big Is 'Boyhood' Going To Be?

    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 -...

    BOI Projected Weekend Top 10: "Apes" Run Wild, Midwest/Northeast Storms Should Lift Family Titles

    "Apes" and the Doppler Radar should be the box office buzz words this coming weekend as Fox's "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" will certainly extend Caesar's reign and a weekend chock full of severe storms in the midwest and northeast look to bring a much needed boost to the industry.

    BOI WEEKLY: Fox/Warners Toe-To-Toe For Box Office Market Share Lead

    An influx of titles ("Edge Of Tomorrow", "Jersey Boys", "Tammy") has allowed Warners to (temporarily) catch Fox as the two currently sit atop the market share leaderboard.

    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. This time last year, the July 4th weekend sold $220 million worth of tickets (a...
