    Weekend Box Office Top Ten: 'Identity Thief' First Breakout of 2013 Amid Weak Field

    A weekend standout amid weather closings, "Identity Thief" outdid expectations for a terrific opening. While a number of recent releases and older Oscar contenders held up well (following the depleted Super Bowl weekend), most or all of the Top 10 films are successes. So what's the worry?

But sometimes, films are filling a void left empty for casual audience goers, and the demand is pent-up not for a specif...

    Weekend Box Office Top Ten: Low-Scoring Game Boosted by Veteran Holdovers

    It was a piss-poor weekend at the box office. Grosses showed somewhat more strength Saturday than Friday. The Super Bowl always damages both audience turnout and viable new releases, but this looks like the worst in total gross since at least 2007, and less than that when higher ticket prices are in...

    Box Office: 'Warm Bodies' Tops Super Bowl Weekend, While 'Bullet To The Head' Flops

    Pale young leading man dreamboat? Check. Playing a cannibalistic monster who holds his predatory instincts in check? Check. Falls in love with a girl who looks like Kristen Stewart? Check. Based on a best-selling book, from Lionsgate/Summit? Double check. “Warm Bodies” took dead (har!) aim at the “T...
