    '2 Guns' Blasts Mild August Weekend; 'Smurfs 2' Lags Stateside; 'Conjuring' Most Profitable Movie Ever Made?

    Universal returned to the #1 spot with Denzel Washington-Mark Wahlberg actioner "2 Guns," the latest in the studio's diverse string of successful openings, after an expensive detour with the dreadful opening of "R.I.P.D." "2 Guns" led a top 10 that totaled about $120 million in gross, a jump of $8 m...

In top spot, "2 Guns" (review here) made $27 million, marking Universal's sixth box office number one film for the summer, but the weakest #1 opening of the summer so far. Directed by Baltasar Kormakur (who also directed the Mark Wahlberg-s...

    Weekend B.O. Aug. 2-4 (The Calmer Month Arrives)

    August is usually the “calmer” month of the summer film season. By then, the humongous CGI bloated, tentpole movies have come and gone (sometimes sooner than expected), and more adult films slowly, but blessedly, begin to appear leading up to the fall film season.

    '2 Guns' Leads Bland Friday Grosses; Sony's 'Smurfs 2' Opens in Third, Bigger Overseas

    It's August. Universal is heading for its third number one opener of the summer as the Denzel Washington/Mark Wahlberg crime actioner "2 Guns" grossed $10 million Friday.

    Arthouse Audit: 'Blue Jasmine' Exceeds 'Midnight in Paris' Debut in Top Specialized Opening of 2013, Best Ever in Summer

    Box Office: 'The Wolverine' Slashes Into Top Spot, But Trails Opening Weekend Of 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'

    Weekend B.O. July 26-28 (‘Fruitvale’ Cracks The Top Ten)

    'The Wolverine' Disappoints at Healthy Box Office; 'Fruitvale' Lands in Top Ten

    Although Twentieth Century Fox's "The Wolverine," the week's sole wide opener, performed a good deal below predictions, the overall weekend was encouraging as the uneven (and very expensive) summer continues to play out. Grosses for the top 10 came in at around $152 million, a big jump from last yea...
