    Box Office: 'Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2' Made It Rain; No 'Rush' To See 'Baggage Claim' Or 'Don Jon'

    If the summer went out with a whimper, September is going out with a friendly shrug. With a little over a third of the number of films in release as last year (44 compared to 120), the box office managed to stick in there, missing last year's domestic gross by roughly only $11.7 million (2012—$119.3...

    Box Office: 'One Direction' Number One; Audience Got Away From 'Get Away' & Latched To 'Instructions Not Included'

    If last weekend was a whimper, this one is a sigh and a groan, and then a brief shimmering light of hope.
