Weekend Box Office: Mockingjay Tops Penguins, Horrible Bosses 2 is a Turkey

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/30/14 at 08:29 PM CT

The long Thanksgiving holiday weekend meant that families had plenty of time to spend quality time together - and maybe catch a movie (either together, or to get away for awhile). Mockingjay cast its spell for a second straight weekend, as the newcomer proved to be a bit of a disappointment. While Catching Fire and Frozen helped the 2013 skyrocket - this year the overall total was off 20%. While ...

The Evolution of Black Friday

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/26/14 at 11:19 PM CT

I realize I'm getting older, but looking back at the dark ages known at the 90s, it amazes me how much things have changed in just a short span of time. I was disheartened that the day after Halloween, I saw the first Christmas ad of the year. It used to be most advertisers waited until after Thanksgiving to start up with the holiday cheer. But why wait when you can ram the savings and specials d...

New in Theaters November 26: Penguins of Madagascar, Horrible Bosses 2, Imitation Game

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/26/14 at 04:48 PM CT

Family and food are upon us as Thanksgiving once again allows us to catch up with the most important people in our lives, while stuffing our face with everything within' hands reach. Meanwhile, for Hollywood, the holiday means essentially an extended weekend - especially for families - and are hoping that after the feast, and Black Friday, people are going to want to wind down with a movie (or...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of November 25-December 1

Harley Lond - wrote on 11/25/14 at 12:26 AM CT


"The Expendables 3": Say what you will about "over-the-hill" action heroes, but these "past-their-prime" stars can still kick some big screen action butt. In this second sequel, the Expendables leader, Barney (Sylvester Stallone), augments his team with new blood for a personal battle: to take down Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson), the Expendables c...

Weekend Box Office: Mockingjay Opens to Year's Best but Also Franchise Low

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/23/14 at 07:55 PM CT

It was a good news/bad news kind of weekend. On the one hand, there was no doubt Hunger Games was going to dominate the weekend - the only question was how big it was going to get. That question was answered and although it certainly posted impressive numbers, it was a bit under the expectations set by the first two films in this monster franchise. Still, it had many factors to take into account ...

New in Theaters November 21: The Hunger Games - Mockingjay Part 1

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/20/14 at 06:56 AM CT

While there may only be one new wide release opening this weekend - there is a reason. It turns out no one else wants to go up against one of the most lucrative and popular movie franchises out right now. The weekend is going to be dominated by one movie and one movie only - and I think it has a chance to be not just the biggest movie of the month, but could very well be the highest-grossing movi...

"22 Jump Street": Here's a thoroughly silly movie that made close to $200 million at the box office, out-performing the first in the franchise, 2012's "21 Jump Street," which took in $138 million, making it a rarity among sequels (which typically don't outperform their prequels). Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum return (as do directors Phil Lord and ...

Weekend Box Office: Dumb and Dumber To Smart Enough to Come Out on Top

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/16/14 at 07:25 PM CT

Proving that it's not always a bad deal to wait a long time between sequels, it turns out a long-awaited comedic duo acting incredibly stupid was enough to win the box office crown. Besides that strong showing, last weekends two big, new releases also had a good second weekend. What that all amounted to was a nice 13% increase for the top 12 films compared to same weekend last year. A handful of ...

New in Theaters November 14: Dumb and Dumber To, Foxcatcher

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/13/14 at 06:41 AM CT

Last weekend the double-barrel blast of Big Hero 6 and Interstellar gave the box office a big boost. It was certainly the shot in the arm the month needed following the quiet Halloween weekend. This weekend we have two films opening that couldn't be any more different if they tried. One is a sequel (long in the making) to a beloved comedy and, on the other hand, we have a beloved comedian taking ...

This week's top theatrical release is "Jersey Boys," Clint Eastwood's big-screen version of the Tony Award-winning musical that tells the story of the four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic 1960s rock group The Four Seasons. The film keys in on the true stories of the trials and tribulat...

Weekend Box Office: Big Hero 6 Edges Out Interstellar for the Win

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/09/14 at 11:15 PM CT

Two huge films opened over the weekend and, should current numbers stands, it will be only the fourth time in history that two films open to above $50 million in their first weekends (also of note - each other time that has happened it has also been an animated film vs. a live action movie). It was a nice rivalry leading up to the weekend, and it didn't leave much room for anyone else, as the hol...

New in Theaters November 07: Interstellar, Big Hero 6

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/06/14 at 06:47 AM CT

Thanks to Halloween, the first weekend in the new month wasn't exactly a barn burner when it came to returns. All that should change this weekend, however, when two, huge movies enter the scene. A massive sci-fi offering from one of the biggest directors around and an animated film from Disney that should help turn around the somewhat muted family market. Also opening in limited release is a biog...

Finally, a mean and nasty villain to yearn for. The folks at Disney have twisted around the 1959 classic "Sleeping Beauty" by putting the whole fairy tale -- in which an evil fairy, Maleficent, slighted at not being welcome at the christening of princess Aurora, casts a spell on her -- into a larger context of greed and exploitation...

Weekend Box Office: Nightcrawler, Ouija Dead Even Over Slow Halloween Wekeend

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/02/14 at 08:17 PM CT

With Halloween falling on Friday, it looks like people were more interested in celebrating than going out to the movies. With just $81.9 million, the Halloween weekend ranks among the slowest of the year. Granted, studios may have been expecting this and thus didn't really offer up any certified blockbusters to bring in moviegoers, either. That being said, at least there is some excitement to be ...
