    Box Office: 'Ender's Game' Wins Jackpot Over 'Last Vegas'

    Considering the love-or-hate, finicky temperament of its core audience targets (grownup sci-fi fans and young adults), Gavin Hood's "Ender's Game" (starring Asa Butterfield as the titular Ender) fared well, ending up in the top spot with $28 million.

    Box Office: 'Bad Grandpa' Knocks Down 'Gravity,' '12 Years A Slave' Makes The Top Ten

    After three weeks, "Gravity" has been taken down a peg by none other than "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa." Although it could read disheartening (Oscar-buzzed original sci-fi knocked down by lowbrow comedy third sequel), there's hope yet that we can still have nice things as a few limited release, in...

    'Bad Grandpa' Pulls Young Males, 'Counselor' Flops, '12 Years' Makes Top Ten, NC-17 'Blue' Starts Strong

    Who knew? All it took to bring back the core males MIA from theaters was a film about an 86-year-old. Paramount's "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa" opened to an easy #1 Friday with $12.6 million (including Thursday late shows).
