    Friday Box Office: 'Ride Along' Reigns Again, 'Awkward Moment' Connects, 'Labor Day' Lags

    For theaters, Super Bowl Weekend is sometimes an early Valentine's Day, as the week's new releases tend to have a rom-com theme. This year is no different, with both new wide releases -- "That Awkward Moment" (Focus) and "Labor Day" (Paramount) -- meant as counter-programming against the football ho...

    Box Office Top Ten: Action Holdovers and Animated Hits Edge Out Costly Bellyflop 'I, Frankenstein'

    Despite a flopping new wide release ("I, Frankenstein"), grosses for the Top 10 this weekend actually enjoyed a healthy jump over last year ($91 million up from $81), showing strength from two unexpectedly big Universal films ("Ride Along" and "Lone Survivor"), two animated features and sustained i...

    Friday Box Office: 'Ride Along' & 'Lone Survivor' Trump Sole New Wide Release 'I, Frankenstein'

    Two Universal films ("Ride Along" and "Lone Survivor") beat back "I, Frankenstein" (Lionsgate), the sole new wide release. (Ironically, "Frankenstein" is a redo of the story that once was a staple for Universal.) Holdovers overall helped lift the Top 10 for the day to more than 10% above the same ...

    Box Office: Universal's 'Ride Along' and 'Lone Survivor' Top Weekend as 'Jack Ryan' Stumbles and 'Hustle' Rides Oscar Wave

    Universal bounced back from its second big-budget dud of 2013, "47 Ronin," with two lower-budget 2014 releases that should pass the $100 million domestic mark. "Ride Along" and holdover "Lone Survivor" grabbed the top two spots, stealing the thunder from the spate of year-end Oscar contenders hoping...

    Friday Box Office: 'Ride Along' Huge as Audiences Move On from Oscars

    "Ride Along," comic Kevin Hart's first lead character role, looks to give Universal its second big opening of the early year as it dominated a strong Friday at #1 with $14.5 million. Studios always regard the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday (which of course is for all Americans) as a reason to open ...

    'Lone Survivor' Stuns in Wide Release; 'Her' is Weak, 'August: Osage County' Strong

    Led by "Lone Survivor," which grossed double its expected amount and looks to be a powerhouse for weeks to come, this weekend continued the steady business of the last few weeks. The Top 10 grossed about $114 million, up a tick from last year, when three new wide releases grossed better than all but...

    'Lone Survivor' Does Huge Friday Business

    With a huge $14.4 million Friday debut for their "Lone Survivor" (Universal), director Peter Berg and actor/producer Mark Wahlberg get the last laugh after their qualifying runs failed to impress critics or receive any awards attention for the film about a lone soldier's fight to escape after a deva...

    Box Office Top Ten: 'Frozen' Returns to #1 in 7th Week; 'Wolf of Wall Street' Shows Strength

    Even with inclement weather in the eastern half of the country cutting into attendance, the top 10 came in $4 million ahead of last year. This despite the relative shortfall from this year's standard first weekend opening of a new horror film. "Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones" failed to land t...

    Holiday Box Office Top Ten: 'Frozen' and 'Hobbit' Beat Out Newer Films, 'August: Osage County' Opens Flat

    The post-Christmas weekend can be one of the biggest of the year. And so it was. The top 10 grossed $171 million, up a healthy $17 million from 2012, which nudges the year's totals slightly ahead of 2012. However the strong weekend total comes despite an uneven performance from a wide variety of fi...
