    What Went Wrong with 'Jersey Boys'? (VIDEO)

    It's easy to see how Warner Bros. turned to their A-list director-producer Clint Eastwood, known for his calm, economic, unpretentious, methodical filmmaking, for the 60s period musical "Jersey Boys." After directing 37 movies, he can do period in his sleep, from "Invictus" to "Changeling,"--on a bu...

    Box-Office: Kevin Hart’s ‘Think Like A Man Too’ Is #1, 'Jersey Boys' Can't Hit Any Strong Notes

    Every trade will tell you the success of “Think Like A Man Too” is because of social media buzz. I just thought it was a little guy named Kevin Hart and an audience that is constantly underserved. I’m going to go with the latter. Hart is one of the biggest African-American stars in the world right n...

    Box Office Top Ten: 'Think Like a Man Too' Takes Number One, 'Jersey Boys' Draws Seniors on Soft Summer Weekend

    The studios have skewed their summer releases around the World Cup, which is taking a bite out of the box office. So this weekend's new releases are aimed at domestic audiences; two films are likely to do more than the usual amount of their business in the U.S. The result was a mixed bag. Leading th...

    SCREEN TALK EPISODE 2: 'Boyhood,' 'Jersey Boys,' Telluride vs. Toronto Clash & More

    New York's Indiewire critic Eric Kohn and I hit Skype again to debate movies seen and still to come. We both adore Richard Linklater's "Boyhood," which didn't make Indiewire's mid-year critics' poll (TOH's picks are here) because it hasn't been released yet. Is it a Best Picture Oscar contender?

    It looks like yet another winner for Kevin Hart, director Tim Story and Clint Culpepper and the gang at Screen Gems as "Think Like A Man Too" is poised to take control of the weekend box office, far outdistancing Sony's other comedy, "22 Jump Street" and "How To Train Your Dragon 2".
