    'Captain Phillips' Opens Well Against Mighty 'Gravity' at Number One

    Two well-reviewed, high-quality films -- "Gravity" and "Captain Phillips" -- lead the Top 10 this weekend with impressive numbers.

    Alfonso Cuarón Says Studio Wanted More Flashbacks & Scenes From Mission Control In 'Gravity'

    While Warner Bros. does indeed deserve credit for bravely sticking with "Gravity" over a complicated four year development/production process, particularly for a film in a genre that isn't known for being the most consistent performer at the box office, that's not to say they didn't initially have c...

    TIFF: My Own Private Toronto Film Festival

    Late as usual. People are attending MIPCOM in Cannes and in November AFM in Santa Monica, and I’m only now getting around to writing about my own private Toronto. I chose films I would not be able to see soon in a theater near me and I chose films because my schedule permitted me to see them. Occasi...

    Watch: Alfonso Cuarón Talks Creating The Stirring Sound Of 'Gravity' In 9-Minute Featurette

    If you saw the box office smashing “Gravity” this past weekend, chances are you were as transfixed by the sound design of the film as you were by Emmanuel Lubezki’s cinematography. Though no sound can be heard in the vacuum of space, Alfonso Cuarón’s film still manages to tell its story aurally. A n...

    'Gravity' Dominates Weekend Box Office with Big Saturday Jump

    3-D space epic "Gravity" delivered a bigger-than-expected $55.5 million at an otherwise dismal weekend box office. Only one other film grossed more than $8 million, holdover "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2" ($21.5 million). After the recent ballyhoo over AMC's "Breaking Bad" finale, "Gravity" r...

    Box Office: 'Gravity' Soars Through 'Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs' & Leaps Over 'Runner Runner'

    Although profits from this weekend were lower overall than those from this time last year (roughly $19 million less, or a 13.4% drop), the box office still did decently ($123 million—not too shabby) thanks to the top two films and their reportedly mind-blowing visual effects, which made filmgoers mo...

    For the past couple of years—except 2013 when he was working on his own "Django Unchained"—Quentin Tarantino wasn't shy about sharing the films he liked, and sometimes, the ones he didn't. For the most part, the filmmaker loves indie movies, animated films and big, popcorn blockbusters. In 2010, he ...
