    Box Office: Moviegoers Fall Into 'Oblivion' As Studios Prepare For Start Of Summer

    Tom Cruise could be seen as a leading man in a holding pattern right now. The fans still come out for his films, but maybe the base hasn’t grown despite an impressive box office record carried into the 2000’s.

    CinemaCon: Warner Bros. Reveals Slate Led by Nolan/Snyder 'Man of Steel,' 'Pacific Rim,' 'Gatsby'

    Indie Box Office Preview: Will Rob Zombie Score With 'Lords of Salem'?

    Rob Zombie isn't usually typical "specialty market fare," with his last three features -- "The Devil's Rejects" and the two new "Halloween" films -- each getting initial wide releases that led to sizable opening weekend grosses (the "Halloween" films took in $26 million and $16 million, respectively...

    Arthouse Audit: 'To the Wonder' Opens in Theaters and VOD; Expanding 'Trance' Weakens

    This weekend, three of four openers also premiered on Video on Demand venues. Terrence Malick's "To the Wonder" is the most significant film yet to take that route.

    Weekend Box Office: '42' Leads Weekend, Breaks Baseball Movie Records, 'Scary' Series Ends

    Old-fashioned period baseball biopic "42" opened surprisingly well and shows signs of long-term play. The Jackie Robinson film provides struggling Warner Bros. with a much-needed hit.
