    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.

    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?
