    Arthouse Audit: 'Bad Words,' 'Enemy' and 'Le Week-End' Best of Modest Openers

    As the post-Oscar surge abates, a wide range of new releases opened this week. They fell far short of the total of last week's massive opener "The Grand Budapest Hotel" (Fox Searchlight) which expanded this weekend to reach #8 in only 66 theaters. Also in the Top 10 is "Veronica Mars" (Warner Bros.)...

But either #2, "300: Rise of an Empire" (Warner Bros.) with $5.8 million, or more likely "Mr. Peabody and Sherman" (20th Century-Fox), at...

    Box Office: ‘300: Rise Of An Empire’ Defends The Kingdom; 'Grand Budapest Hotel' Smashes Per-Screen Average Records

    It arrived much too late, some seven years after the fact. It was met with most middling reviews, and it featured no real stars to speak of. But that could not stop “300: Rise Of An Empire,” the slightly less-ripped, less-sweaty, otherwise pretty-much-the-same sequel from dominating the box office (...
