    Friday Box Office: Is It Time to Panic Yet?

    Another post-holiday Friday, another dismal box office report. And with the Super Bowl upon us, the weekend is unlikely to get much better. The top ten films yesterday grossed around $22 million, compared to $31 million last year (also opposite The Big Game). This continues a trend for recent wee...

    MVPs of the Movies: Tom Hanks, Harrison Ford, Eddie Murphy and Robin Williams Top the List

    What does it take to be one of the most valuable actors of all time? 24/7 Wall St. considered this and ranked almost 700 leading actors. They found that in order to top the list, an actor needed to have starred in not just one but several high-grossing franchises

    Despite not getting any traction this awards season, Dustin Hoffman's senior-audience skewing "Quartet" continued to find very impressive numbers at the specialty box office, which has been off to a slow start for newcomers this month.

    Arthouse Audit: VOD Vet 'John Dies at the End' Scores, 'Quartet' Builds

    The contrast between the fevered buying at the just completed Sundance and the pace of business, particularly for new openings, at specialized theaters was fairly stark this weekend. Among those new films reporting grosses, each opened in only one city (two in New York, one in Los Angeles), all gett...

    Weekend Box Office Top Ten: Weak Openers Led by 'Hansel and Gretel'

    Things picked up on Saturday after poor box office performance Friday due to Eastern weather. But it was still a weak result overall, with the Top Ten down about 25% from last weekend (even without major football competition) and about $6 million under last year (which saw a slight bump for two new ...

    Box Office: 'Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters' Tops Slow Weekend

    So, did the big fairy tale boom happen? “Alice In Wonderland” burst out of the gate with a billion dollar gross, leading the way for two Snow White movies that performed respectably, if not powerfully. And here in January, we have another, the R-rated “Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters.” The fact tha...

    Weekend Box Office Preview: Weak Openers, 'Silver Linings' Holds Strong

    Did you look at the movie ads this weekend and decide maybe it was a good time to stay home? Apparently you weren't alone. Three new openings failed to spark much interest, and combined with other post-Christmas releases that got whatever attention they deserved on their first few days, business col...

    While distributors ponder how much to spend on new films showcased at Sundance, the business of opening and playing off previous acquisitions continues, with most of the success coming from higher-level films from top companies, particularly those in the middle of the Oscar race.
