    Top Ten Highest Grossing Woody Allen Movies vs. 'Blue Jasmine'

    "Blue Jasmine" moved into the top ten this weekend as Woody Allen's widest release ever. Taking in $4.3 million in 1,283 theaters and reaching the $14.8 million mark in only its fifth week, this Sony Pictures Classics release is now certain to be the biggest specialized film of the year thus far, an...

    Box Office Top Ten: 'The Butler,' 'We're the Millers' Lead Solid Late Summer Weekend; 'Mortal Instruments' Another Sony Also-Ran

    The end of season returns show that audiences can be satisfied with something beyond just the more hyped franchise entries that dominated most of the last few months, many of which failed to satisfy over a period when increased total grosses came with higher budgets. "The Butler" and "We're the Mill...

    Arthouse Audit: 'The Grandmaster' and 'Short Term 12' Lead Openers

    This week's openings didn't reach the heights of the strongest mid-summer specialized releases, but two did solid initial business. Weinstein's "The Grandmaster" and Cinedigm's "Short Term 12" both have a ways to go before they're hits, but each grabbed decent sampling and critical heft to boost the...

    Box Office: 'Lee Daniels' The Butler' Withstands 'The World's End' & 'The Mortal Instruments' To Take #1 For Second Week

    The end of summer is nigh and it's going out with a whimper (although this weekend's gross is up 16% since last year). The openers (even the third installment of the Cornetto Trilogy) couldn't compete with an Oprah and Weinstein Company-endorsed historical drama and a comedy featuring a Jennifer Ani...

    Specialty Box Office: 'Grandmaster' Fights To Top of New Releases; 'Blue Jasmine' Makes Overall Top 10 As Woody's Widest Release

    "The Grandmaster" -- already Wong Kar-wai's highest grossing film at the Chinese box office -- hit U.S. theaters this weekend care of Mr. Harvey Weinstein (in a version 22 minutes shorter than what China got), and got off to a very respectable start. In 7 theaters, the film grossed $132,259 for a $1...

    Weekend B.O. Aug. 23-25 (‘The Butler’ Does It Again And A Question)

    Once again Lee Daniels’ The Butler was the No.1 film this weekend with $17 million and a total-to-date B.O. gross of over $52 million, and, once again, I predicted it. Can’t say I’m surprised considering that every single person I’ve talked to so far who has seen the film has told me that the au...

    'The Butler' and 'We're the Millers' Continue Strong at Box Office, 'World's End' Could Be Wright's Biggest Grosser

    Unlike some who find reporting on this kind of weekend not worth their time or analysis, there's a lot going on. For one thing, by Sunday the year's box office will officially be ahead of last year. For another, two solid late summer entries, "The Butler" and "We're the Millers," both held well to t...

    'Blue Jasmine' to Go Wider--and Outgross--Any Woody Allen Film

    Sony Pictures Classics has decided that the time is right to expand "Blue Jasmine," Woody Allen's 44th feature starring Cate Blanchett, from 229 to over 1,200 screens nationwide this weekend.

    Arthouse Audit: Sundance Hits 'Austenland,' 'Ain't Them Bodies Saints' and 'Cutie & the Boxer' Open Soft

    The ongoing success of several late-summer hits plus serious competition from "The Butler" this weekend contributed to the disappointing results for three new entries. Over July and August, four Sundance 2013 releases opened strongly with two breakouts: "The Way, Way Back" and "Fruitvale Station." B...

    'The Butler' Close to 'The Help''s Opening Numbers; Holdovers 'We're the Millers' and 'Elysium' Beat Other Newcomers

    "Lee Daniels' The Butler" delivered as a major number one success for The Weinstein Co., exceeding most predictions. But the overall weekend marked another summer disappointment. Three of this week's four openers fell from their Friday starts, showing bad word of mouth and lack of interest. "Kick-As...

    Specialty Box Office: Limited Release Newcomers Underwhelm as 'The Butler' Exceeds All In Wide Release

    Unlike Lee Daniels' last two films, his legally titled "Lee Daniels' The Butler" went wide in its first weekend of release, and it sure did pay off. Though Indiewire's Sunday report is typically exclusive to limited release indies -- we'll get to that in a minute -- it seemed worth leading off with...
