    $8.8M Thursday Night Sets "Transformers" Up For Weekend Grab Of Close To $100 Million

    I will admit to being rather perplexed by "Transformers: Age of Extinction". It has all the street cred of a big summer tentpole...Michael Bay, a bankable star in Mark Wahlberg, great special effects and a built in audience. Yet it appears that the film won't crack the $100 barrier as the film's T...

    In this week's Hit Or Miss column we look at the Kevin Hart machine, why "Fault In Our Stars" hasn't hung in the way "Divergent" did and Jon Favreau's Little Engine That Could

    Clear The Track, Optimus Prime Leads The "Transformers" Back Into Box Office Action

    That cacophony of crashes, screeches and high octane this-goes-to-11 decimation you hear can only mean two things...it's summer and it's Michael Bay. Yes, both are back with a vengeance this week as Optimus Prime and the rest of the Transformers return in "TF: Age Of Extinction"

    Joon-ho Bong's "Snowpiercer" and Whitey Bulger Lead A Full Plate Of Indie Offerings This Week

    It's been a rather silent summer so far on the indie front with films such as "The Rover", "Words and Pictures" and "The Immigrant" failing to gain any traction at the specialty box office. Only "Chef" has enjoyed any kind of tasty returns since the calendar struck June but this week there are some...

    China Spurs "Maleficent" To The Top Of The World Cup Dominated International Box Office

    There's nothing like an opening in China to allow you to reclaim the top spot overseas and nothing like 11 guys falling down as if shot when breathed on (are you listening, Germany?) to keep guys away from International multiplexes. That translates to family oriented films finishing 1-2 this weeken...

    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...

    Sunday Update. Sony's 1-2 Punch: "Think Like A Man Too" Tops The Chart at $30 Million, "22 Jump Street"

    Saturday's number on "Think Like A Man Too" was less than expected but still good enough to win the box office weekend with $30 million, barely edging out Sony's other title, "22 Jump Street".

    Projected Weekend Top 10: Separating The "Man" From The "Boys"

    It looks like yet another winner for Kevin Hart, director Tim Story and Clint Culpepper and the gang at Screen Gems as "Think Like A Man Too" is poised to take control of the weekend box office, far outdistancing Sony's other comedy, "22 Jump Street" and "How To Train Your Dragon 2".
