New in Theaters October 31: Nightcrawler, Before I Go to Sleep

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/30/14 at 10:42 AM CT

With October 2014 going down as the highest-grossing month on record, we'll see if November (the first few days, anyway) can open up just as strong. Granted, the really big movies aren't coming until the second weekend, but we still have a highly-regarded crime drama along with an under-the-radar thriller with a well-rounded cast. If the previous week's films can continue to hold on to at least a...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of October 28-November 3

Harley Lond - wrote on 10/28/14 at 12:19 AM CT


Due this week are three remarkably uninspiring films:

In "Deliver Us From Evil," New York police officer Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana), struggling with his own personal issues, begins investigating a series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes, eventually joining forces with an unconventional priest (Edgar Ramirez), schooled in the rituals of exor...

Weekend Box Office: Ouija Conjures Up a Win, John Wick Burns Steady

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/26/14 at 08:51 PM CT

It was the last full weekend in October and it has been a very good month for 2014. The top 12 films brought in $102.7 million - up 8% from the same period last year - and with a little under a week to go, it is already the highest-grossing October on record. Thanks to strong R-rated appeal from Gone Girl, Fury and now John Wick, the box office was driven mainly by adults (for a change) though th...

New in Theaters October 24: John Wick, Ouija, St. Vincent

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/23/14 at 06:44 AM CT

It has been an outstanding October for the box office. With Gone Girl leading the charge, each weekend has seen the overall box office up 20% or more compared to the same weekend in 2013. It's all the more impressive given most of the films that have shone have been targeted squarely at adults - R-rated dramas, war and crime. Throw in a few family films to balance the mood - and things are lookin...

Are You in for the Superhero Long Haul?

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/22/14 at 04:13 PM CT

Back in 2008, when Iron Man hit theaters and became a big hit ($318.4 million domestic, $585 million worldwide), it ushered in a new era of movies. The "cinematic universe" - a multi-year, multi-movie arc involving various characters who are then brought together for one huge film. Marvel started it off with Iron Man, Thor and Captain American, culminating in the monstrous Avengers. And pretty mu...

"The Purge: Anarchy": Writer-director-producer James DeMonaco's sequel to his summer 2013 sleeper hit takes place in a near-future Los Angeles as citizens once again get ready to prepare for the country's yearly night of anarchy -- The Purge -- in which murder and mayhem is legalized for 12 hours in an effort to lower the crime rate for the rest ...

Weekend Box Office: Fury Tops Gone Girl While Limited Release Birdman Gets Major Buzz

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/19/14 at 07:04 PM CT

It was a battle of the R-rated drama this weekend, and while the tank may have topped the mystery, the result was a lot closer than one would have predicted. It wasn't as good of news for the other two wide-release openings, which only did middling to tepid business. But the biggest buzz came from a pair of limited-release openings, which posted some of the most impressive numbers of the year - h...

New in Theaters October 17: Fury, Book of Life, The Best of Me

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/16/14 at 06:44 AM CT

Two strong weekends in October have come and gone and it looks like things are going to stay strong. Three new arrivals this week look to shake up the box office. An action-packed war film with an impressive cast, a colorful animated film for the family and, for those couples out there, another Nicholas Sparks adaptation sure to tug on the heartstrings. With Gone Girl continuing to impress, I thi...

Life is still very complicated for Rousseau. Now 40-years-old, a failed writer, and divorced, he's heartbroken when the mother of his children moves with them from Paris ...

Weekend Box Office: Gone Girl Staves off Dracula, Alexander for Second Win in a Row

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/12/14 at 08:31 PM CT

The fall is turning out to be a windfall for Hollywood, as the lean months have some teeth to them. Much like the beginning of the year, the 2014 is now outpacing 2013 by a healthy margins. The box office took in $150 million for the weekend - up 30% compared to the same weekend last year. It was a great weekend for both new releases and some old friends as both adults and families alike poured i...

New in Theaters October 10: Dracula Untold, Kill the Messenger, The Judge, Very Bad Day

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/09/14 at 06:48 AM CT

After a record-setting October weekend, I'm guessing Hollywood is looking to keep the good times rolling. They sure aren't letting up when it comes to releasing new movies as this weekend will see four movies vying for attention - another horror film will try to compete with Annabelle, a very dramatic film for the adults, a very lighthearted film for the family and crime drama, you know, to even ...

Harley Lond - wrote on 10/07/14 at 03:19 AM CT


"Edge of Tomorrow": Here's a time-loop sci-fi adventure that really works, one that not only gives us plausible scenarios, lots of military action and terrific special effects, but also a fine performance from the enigmatic Tom Cruise. All from eclectic director Doug Liman (who brought us "Swingers," "Go," "The Bourne Identity" and "Jumper"). The ...

Weekend Box Office: Gone Girl Edges Out Annabelle in Thrilling Debuts

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/05/14 at 07:47 PM CT

The weekend was a monster - and I'm not just talking about that scary doll. With Gone Girl and Annabelle both posting impressive numbers, this weekend was the biggest October weekend on record - and up a fantastic 23% compared to last year (when Gravity opened to $55 million). The two films led the way, but the also-rans also scored some strong week-to-week numbers, which was another big factor i...

New in Theaters October 03: Gone Girl, Annabelle, Left Behind

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/02/14 at 06:52 AM CT

September had a nice couple of weekends to end the month, even if it started out a quite slow. Now that we've reached October, slowly but surely we're going to be entering the all-important Oscar season. There's one movie that's looking to capitalize on its increasingly good buzz, if not to ride to the Academy Awards, at least ride to a good opening. Otherwise we have spin-off horror movie that i...
