    Weekend Box Office: 'Fockers' Shows 'True Grit', Outduels Cowboys (But Not For Long)

    2010 ended with a whimper with most studio execs facing an uncertain 2011, as the year closed with eight consecutive weekends of box office earning lower than its 2009 counterpart despite five major 3D releases goosing prices. Of course, 3D is a gimmick, but it’s foolish to consider that each of those five films were relative underperformers due to disinterest in the format when even the most ardent fan must admit to subpar product. Of course, the industry is always looking for a scapegoat when the answer is clearly, “terrible movies are being made and should not be,” so the disappearance of 3D (not likely) will happen before a sudden spike i...

    27 Of Our Favorite Onscreen Moments In 2010

    First, we’ll start you off with a warning: there are plenty of plot spoilers within, so if you haven’t seen the movies on this list you might want to do yourself a favor and watch them first before having some key scenes, and in some cases even the ending, ruined for you.

    2010 In Reverse: 7 What-Could-Have-Been Films

    Projects come and projects go. Actors and directors join or spearhead them and then sometimes they leave. Sometimes it's not personal, sometimes it's downright acrimonious. We're not crying over spilled milk or anything, but there were a handful of high profile films in 2010 that started one way, then headed in an entirely different direction. In some cases it was for the better, in some cases for the worse, in some cases it just doesn't make much difference to anyone, but as we were thinking of the bigger news items of 2010, we thought it would be fun to look back on the history of some of the films that finally made their way to the big scr...

    Weekend Box Office: Audiences Say 'Fock' Off To 'Little Fockers,' 'Gulliver's Travels'

    Every once in awhile, we look at the numbers and hope, pray that the weekend is emblematic of an attitude amongst the public. They’ve had enough, we predict, and moviegoers are no longer going to accept subpar product. This winter has led to that assumption being made repeatedly, as audiences have r...

    Exclusive: David O. Russell Talks The Humor, Pathos & Women Of 'The Fighter'

    Long a personal pet project for Mark Wahlberg, "The Fighter" finally kicked into gear once David O. Russell was brought into the director's chair (replacing Darren Aronofsky who exited and went on to make "The Wrestler"). The film was a rugged indie effort, but one that attracted top tier talent inc...

    Weekend Box Office: 2010 Ending With A Whimper As 'Narnia' Fades, 'Black Swan' Rises

    The winter box office is proving to be a bummer for the major studios. A year after “Avatar” ran the table, allowing “The Blind Side,” "Sherlock Holmes" and “Alvin And The Chipmunks” to pick up the scraps on the way to $200 million domestic totals each, audiences have been rejecting the winter 2010 ...

    11 Boxing Films That Will Knock You Out

    Not every sport works well on the big screen, and it's not always the ones you think. Basketball? Surprisingly, not that cinematic. Golf? Actually pretty gripping, when done well. Soccer? Don't make us laugh. But probably the king of big-screen sports has to be boxing. It's as stripped ...

    In Theaters: 'The Tourist,' 'The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,' 'The Fighter'

    After last week's huge post-holiday box office drop, Hollywood will attempt to steer the ship back on course with a couple of high-profile new releases this weekend. Two of the world's biggest movie stars, Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, team up for the goofy international espionage thriller "The Tourist," which doesn't have too much competition for the adult dollar this weekend--at least at the multiplex. Fox reignites the 'Narnia' franchise without co-financing from Disney, after the disappointment of "Prince Caspian" with "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader." The 3D inflation should help the film do decent numbers, bu...
