    Weekend Box-Office: Is 'Green Lantern' The End Of The Superhero Gravy Train?

    Perspective is necessary. $53 million is a whole lotta money. $53 million could buy several houses, it could feed many people, it could save lives. $53 million is also a pretty good opening for a somewhat higher-budgeted film, provided advertising isn’t through the roof and there aren’t a massive am...

    The 'Salt' Sequel You Didn't Know You Wanted Is Happening, Kurt Wimmer Hired To Write The Film

    In the era of no-original-ideas Hollywood, even studio suits have to admit that rolling the dice on a "Salt" sequel seems a bit ludicrous. The Angelina Jolie spy film seems impressive when you look at the numbers -- just under $300 million worldwide -- but when you break it down, it looks less enticing. The film brought in $118 million domestic, just a shade over it's $110 million budget. Overseas, the film fared better with a $175 million haul. But is anyone really asking for a sequel? The film is all but a distant memory and that other Angelina Jolie spy movie from last year, "The Tourist," was met with even worse reviews than "Salt" and wi...

    Columbia Pictures Snags Kathryn Bigelow's Seal Team 6 Film; Set For Fall 2012 Release

    No Mention Of Joel Edgerton Starring In The FilmSince late last year, director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal have been hard at work on black ops thriller, the details of which, at the time, were being kept under wraps but was rumored to be about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden. Those rumors turned out be true but when the Al Qaeda leader was suddenly killed a few weeks ago, it was reported that Boal a former investigative reporter, shifted his research and resources and was already rewriting with a section covering the 40 minute firefight that resulted in Bin Laden's death. Even more, Aussie actor Joel Edgerton was said to be a frontrunne...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Pirates 4' Scores Biggest Global Debut Of All-Time Despite Being A Shitty Movie

    This weekend, Disney pooled their resources with Jerry Bruckheimer and produced an insta-blockbuster. Apathy is the name of the game with “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” which scored the biggest bow of 2011 despite being a piece of shit that grossed lower in its opening frame than its...

    Box Office: 'Rio' First 2011 Release To Crack $40 Million Opening Weekend; 'Scream' Goes Quiet

    There’s no way to sugarcoat this: it’s been a dismal year at the box office. Studios have their fingers crossed in regards to a tepid-looking summer schedule, but many were hoping the season could be kick(punch)-started early with a strong April, as two new films were tracking well over $40 million ...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Hop' Defeats Four Newcomers; 'Your Highness' Flops Loudly And Rudely

    Earlier in the year, the tepid box office returns were something to be ignored, as 2011 was competing with the previous year, with both “Avatar” and then the anomaly of “Alice In Wonderland” each raking in a cool billion. Well, it’s April, and it’s time for Hollywood to panic. There have been no genuine out-of-the-box hits so far this year and lots of flops, and the two (barely) $100 million grossers considered underperformers (“Rango” and “Just Go With It”). Let’s face it, part of it is a failure of marketing, but the blame must be laid on inadequate product. Even when it comes to the early year doldrums, this has been a banner year for garb...

    Weekend Box Office: Kids Come Out For 'Hop,' 'Sucker' Thoroughly 'Punch'ed

    While Universal’s animated division remains behind Disney and Dreamworks, “Hop” became their second straight surprisingly big opening this weekend, collecting $39 million. Most called the heavily-promoted film in the high 20’s, low 30’s, but like “Despicable Me” before it, the film definitely connected with family audiences in its first frame. While “Despicable Me” eventually collected $544 million globally with a much bigger opening, “Hop” isn’t expected to bust the doors down. But due to the seasonal and family appeal, expect this thing to have legs, and while they initially weren’t counting on $100 domestic, that should be easily surmounta...
