    Box Office: 'One Direction' Number One; Audience Got Away From 'Get Away' & Latched To 'Instructions Not Included'

    Sony Concert Doc 'One Direction' Boosts Labor Day Weekend Box Office, 'Closed Circuit' Flops

    Forget the September doldrums. Sony's Brit boy band 3-D concert film "One Direction" was a solid number one. And major support came from four strong holdovers: "The Butler," "We're the Millers," "Planes" and "Elysium." All told, the three days will come in with about $84 million for the top 10, up $...

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...

    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...
