    Specialty Box Office: 'Way, Way Back' Scores Strong Debut; 'Midnight' Tops 'Sunrise' and 'Sunset'

    Fox Searchlight's big Sundance buy is so far looking like a smart move: "The Way, Way Back" -- which the distributor bought for $10 million at this year's festival - debuted in 19 theaters this weekend to very strong $525,000 gross. That made for a $30,263 average and suggested promising things for...

    Arthouse Audit: 'The Way, Way Back' Starts Strong, 'Twenty Feet from Stardom' Expands Well

    Fourth of July holiday weekends aren't great for opening specialized films. But this year Fox Searchlight's "The Way, Way Back" saw the best numbers for a new release in recent memory. And business spread among several new breakouts. Leading the way was RADiUS/TWC's crowd-pleasing documentary "20 Fe...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Despicable Me 2' Overperforms, Leaves 'The Lone Ranger' in the Dust

    Universal's much-bigger-than-expected "Despicable Me 2" led the holiday weekend, outgrossing Disney's disappointing "The Lone Ranger" by two thirds. (It has amassed a remarkable $142 million in five days, while "The Lone Ranger" scored $48 million total.) Despite "The Lone Ranger," which marks the t...

    Box Office: Families Love 'Despicable Me 2'; 'The Lone Ranger' Bites The Dust, Kemosabe

    This was a 4th of July weekend for the record books, and we're not talking about fireworks. With an estimated $220 million worth of tickets sold (a 12% increase from last year's 4th of July), moviegoers set a new three-day weekend record for the holiday. As for the films themselves, this weekend mar...

    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...
