    Here are some facts, without spin. The opening $64 million weekend of "The Amazing Spider-Man" is less than that of "Spider-Man 2" by about $24 million. The $140 million it has registered since it's release on Tuesday is overshadowed by the first three days of "Spider-Man 3," at $151 million. And wi...

Leading the way and outdoing all expectations was "Ted," the teddy bear-Marky Ma...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Brave' Is Pixar's Thirteenth Straight Number One Debut

    Thirteen films. Thirteen straight hits. All number one movies. It wasn't a surprise to see "Brave" climb that mountain, the fifth-highest opening in Pixar history, even if the numbers are coming in very close to last year's relatively underwhelming "Cars 2." That film was...

    Weekend Box Office: '80s-Themed Pics 'Rock Of Ages' & 'That's My Boy' Stumble As 'Madagascar 3' Retains The Top Spot

    Kids sure do love these CGI ‘toons. “Madagascar 3D: Europe’s Most Wanted” took over the box office for a second straight week, handily defeating holdovers and two new big releases despite falling off a bit heavier than your usual kids’ flick (41.1%). Having grossed $120 million domestically so far, ...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Madagascar 3D' Bests 'Prometheus,' Solid Results For Both

    There’s always an audience out there. You just have to serve it. And so it goes with the past three days, the second straight strong weekend of this summer that suggests business is rebounding from a tepid 2011. “Madagascar 3D: Europe’s Most Wanted” took the crown in a fashion similar to the first t...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Snow White And The Huntsman' Bucks Poor Tracking Worries, The 'Avengers' Breaks Two More All-Time Records

    Maybe that sequel will happen after all. Very clever, Universal. First, you announce that "Snow White and the Huntsman" is tracking a bit weak, possibly in the low 30s. Then, there's a "leak" that you've backtracked on a sequel since getting David Koepp to pen a follow-up...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Men In Black 3' Unseats 'The Avengers' From The Top Spot

    Sony said, “Lemme see ya Nod Ya Head! Cuz the black suits coming!” And if you look at this weekend’s opening numbers for “Men In Black 3,” they’re really only impressive if you were to go “Back In Time.” As is, $55 million worth of audiences domestically said, “Here come the ‘Men In Black’ ” this we...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Battleship' & 'The Dictator' Flop Hard As 'The Avengers' Continues To Dominate

    Disney sure picked the right time to get in on that Marvel action. After the first Marvel films proved to be decent-sized hits, the studio came in like a shark, swiping the studio up for a few billion, expecting similar results. Yet, not only has “The Avengers” handily outdrawn every other superhero...

    Weekend Box Office: 'The Avengers' Crosses The $1 Billion Mark In 19 Days; Registers First-Ever $100 Million Second Weekend

    When a movie scores the biggest opening weekend of all time (by nearly $40 million, in this case), the expectation is that it should continue to smash records. So, at a glance, “The Avengers” scoring the largest second weekend in film history isn’t exactly newsworthy. Though most prognosticators peg...

    Weekend Box Office: 'The Avengers' Assemble The Biggest Opening Weekend In History With $207 Million

    Box office: you just got Avenged. Combining the feature attractions of four separate blockbusters, "The Avengers" was looking to at least surpass the first weekend gross of "Iron Man 2," which pulled in a non-3D three-day total of $128 million during this weekend two years ago. However, few expected...
