    Box Office: 'The Hobbit' Holds Off 'Jack Reacher' & 'This Is 40'; 'Zero Dark Thirty' Starts Strong

    'The Hobbit' what happened? You were supposed to be our hero. The “Lord Of The Rings” pictures, all released during the holiday period, had steady-to-muscular second weekend holds.

    Weekend Box Office: 'Argo' Takes Top Slot As 'Cloud Atlas' And Other New Releases Crash & Burn

    In one of the weakest weekends of the year which may yet get weaker thanks to the oncoming Frankenstorm (stay safe, East Coasters), the only real winner was Ben Affleck's "Argo." It's rare for a movie to make it to number one several weeks into release, but the actor/director's political thriller ha...
