    Arthouse Audit: Action Among Wider Release Films as Specialty Box Office Lags, 'Enough Said' Tops Fall Specialty Films

    With "Gravity" and now "Captain Phillips" dominating the Top 10, propelled by ticket buyers who often overlap with those who might otherwise pursue more specialized fare, the overall weekend arthouse box office is less than spectacular. Several independent releases outside the normal definition of s...

    'Captain Phillips' Opens Well Against Mighty 'Gravity' at Number One

    Two well-reviewed, high-quality films -- "Gravity" and "Captain Phillips" -- lead the Top 10 this weekend with impressive numbers.

    Box Office: 'Gravity' Stays In Top Spot With 2nd Best Hold Of 2013; 'Captain Phillips' Ships In 2nd With $26 Million

    This past weekend saw two heavyweights go head-to-head. In one corner, an original sci-fi pic with phenomenal special effects and Sandra Bullock lost in space (read our review here).

    Weekend B.O. Oct. 11-13 (The ‘Captain’ Can’t Beat ‘Gravity’)

    As expected, Gravity once again came in No. 1 this weekend with $44 million. But what is even more remarkable is that the usual box office drop off from the first week to the second for the film was only a mere 21%.

    'Gravity' Finally Takes George Clooney's Opening Weekend Record Away From 'Batman & Robin,' But Can It Top 'Oceans' For His Best Overall?

    Beyond breaking the box office record for best opening in October, best opening in the Autumn, and best opening ever for a Sandra Bullock film, "Gravity" had the distinction of finally taking George Clooney's debut weekend record away from... "Batman & Robin"? Yep, somehow Clooney's career -- which ...

    'Gravity' Dominates Weekend Box Office with Big Saturday Jump

    3-D space epic "Gravity" delivered a bigger-than-expected $55.5 million at an otherwise dismal weekend box office. Only one other film grossed more than $8 million, holdover "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2" ($21.5 million). After the recent ballyhoo over AMC's "Breaking Bad" finale, "Gravity" r...
