    There's nothing like an opening in China to move a film back up the box office standings.

    Top Ten Takeaways: What Went Wrong with 'The Giver' & 'Expendables 3,' Surprise Genre Gains Popularity

It bested the disappointing, much more expensive "The Expendables 3" (Lionsgate), which for a var...

Comedy "The Trip to Italy" (IFC) and music drama "Frank" (Magnolia) fared best in theaters only--from distributors who often use day-and-date Video on Demand avenues.

    Box-Office: ‘Ninja Turtles’ Repeats At #1, ‘Expendables 3,’ ‘The Giver’ & ‘Let’s Be Cops’ All Flop

    Let’s recap since we didn’t really do a proper box-office report last weekend (aside from this brief report).

    There's a good chance that, for the first time this summer, we won't have a new opener crack the top two at the box office. Although "Expendables", "Let's Be Cops" and "The Giver" are on pace to open to three day numbers in the high teens or low 20's, it may not be enough to unseat Mikey, Donnie, R...
