    Holiday Box Office: 'Despicable Me 2' Leads Strong Two-Day Total; 'Lone Ranger' Trails Distant Second

    The Fourth of July holiday box office was dominated by Universal's "Despicable 2," which did just under half of the total business for the top 10 films for Wednesday (its opening day) and Thursday. Box office boomed for one of the best summer boosts above last year so far. The two-day take was aroun...

    Indiewire's Mid-Year Box Office Report: 'Mud' and 'Pines' Lead A Strong Year So Far

    Last summer, when Indiewire reported on the indie box office for the first half of 2012, we saw a hopeful turn in comparison to the year prior. A year later, it seems reasonable to suggest that trend has held and that all is generally healthy at the specialty box office so far in 2013.

    Arthouse Audit: 'I'm So Excited' Scores Decent Opening, 'Museum Hours' Is Surprise Success

    Summer isn't the usual launchpad for subtitled films, but this weekend two June openers both show promise. "I'm So Excited" (Sony Pictures Classics), from the most consistently successful foreign language director Pedro Almodovar, opened solidly, if below his usual level. The much less-heralded "Mus...

    Box Office: 'The Heat' Burns 'White House Down'; 'Monsters University' Still Valedictorian

    In its second week, Pixar's "Monsters University" is still top of the class with $46.2 million and a running total of $171 million. Pixar should enjoy the top spot while it lasts. With Universal's "Despicable Me 2" and Disney's "The Lone Ranger" opening next weekend, 'Monsters' is bound to lose some...

    Specialty Box Office: Audiences 'Excited' To Check Out Almodovar's Latest (But Not As Much As Usual)

    Pedro Almodovar's "I'm So Excited" led a generally underwhelming sextet of specialty debuts this weekend, grossing $103,000 from just 5 screens. That made for a $20,600 average, the highest of any film in release, including studio chart toppers "Monsters University" and "The Heat."

    'Monsters University' and 'The Heat' Battle for Top Spot at Lagging Summer Box Office

    The release calendar is crowded, and Friday's numbers show that the intense competition for the top films is not expanding the marketplace. The end result is not the box office bonanza many have been predicting. In fact, the total numbers for the top 10 yesterday fell just under 20% from the same Fr...

    'Unfinished Song' Leads Weak New Openers As 'Bling Ring,' 'Much Ado' and 'Before Midnight' Fight for Wider Attention

    After several weeks of mainly $20,000 range or better per screen averages for several opening week films in limited release, the new ones this week fell short of that. The best was Weinstein's "Unfinished Song," more of a crowd-pleaser than critics film, while two acclaimed foreign films -- "The Att...
