Pacific Rim Neither Goes Big Nor Goes Extinct at the Box Office

Pacific Rim’s less than monstrous opening can’t be considered a shock given that it’s an original property, has no major name stars, and has to clear the hurdle of convincing general audiences that look down upon giant monster movies as something beneath their intelligence....

Box Office Report: World War Z More Like World War $

Monsters ruled the box office this weekend in a big way. The top spot belonged to the monsters of Monsters University, but nipping at their heels were the 3D PG-13 ant zombies of World War Z. How weird is it that on the small screen R-rated zombies garner huge ratings, but you have to make them bloodless PG-13 to find huge success on the big screen?

Box Office: This Is the End Off to a Solid Beginning

Who would dare challenge the Man of Steel? How about a raunchy R-rated meta-comedy about stoner actors dealing with the end of the world? This Is the End managed to hold its own against Superman even if it did make over $100 million less.

How High Did The Purge Surge at this Weekend's Box Office?

Opinions on The Purge may be greatly mixed, but audiences flocked in droves to see the futuristic home invasion flick this weekend, making it a surprise, overperforming #1, even making back ten times its budget and setting a new horror movie record in the process.

Weekend Box Office Report: Was Evil Dead More Alive than Scary Movie 5?

While Evil Dead struggled not to plummet like so many 3D Texas Chainsaws, Scary Movie 5 proved to be a franchise that probably wasn’t worth reviving. Funny; A Haunted House was a modest hit and Scary Movie 5 bombs.

Box Office – Evil Dead Groovy, Jurassic Park 3D Anything But Extinct

It was a big weekend for Hollywood with three films coming in at over $20 million and a 3D re-release nipping at their heels. But it was Evil Dead that swallowed the box office’s soul in a big way.

The Host Not So Heavenly at the Easter Weekend Box Office

If Open Road was thinking it had the next Twilight on its hands with The Host, also written by Stephenie Meyer, it had better think again. The film had a disappointing $11 million, 6th place debut, a sure sign that it's not the next hot young adult franchise everyone is scrambling to find.

Halle Berry Fans Answer The Call and Make It No. 2 at the Box Office

One of the year's biggest surprises so far is that Brad Anderson's The Call proved Halle Berry still has what it takes to attract a crowd as the film ended up in the number two spot at the box office.

If the Box Office Is Any Indication, It Really Will Be The Last Exorcism

There was good news and bad news for The Last Exorcism Part II at this weekend’s box office. The bad news is that it bombed. The good news is that it was such a cheap movie to make, it won’t be nearly the money loser Jack the Giant Slayer is poised to be.

The Ghastly Love of Johnny X Lowest Grossing Movie of 2012

Back in February of 2012 we told you about a little indie flick called The Ghastly Love of Johnny X. Nobody heard us. Nobody listened. And now... well now the little flick has gone on to live in infamy!

Dark Skies Not Exactly Hovering Above the Oscar Weekend Box Office

Fact: By the year 2015 all theatrically released horror movies will be billed as being "From the Producers of Paranormal Activity and Insidious." With that being slapped on movies like Dark Skies, it’s hard not to believe its enticement value is rapidly being diminished.

Beautiful Creatures Dies Hard at the Box Office

As Hollywood begins churning out more and more genre-centric romantic young adult flicks, desperately hoping that tweener girls experiencing Twilight withdrawal will give rise to a new cash cow franchise, a harsh reality is lost on these producers.

Warm Bodies Anything But Cold at the Box Office

It was a good weekend for young zombies with Warm Bodies, less so for new movies featuring actors with one foot in the grave (Stallone, Pacino, Walken). Meanwhile fairy tale monster slayers prove they have more life in them than Leatherface.

Box Office: Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters Lures Many Moviegoers into Its Gingerbread House

Audiences had no interest in an aging Austrian action hero last weekend, but they showed up this weekend to see a pair of younger action heroes save a Bavarian forest from witchery.

Mama is the Queen of the Martin Luther King Day Box Office

As the country prepares to remember the man who had a dream, moviegoers were more interested in nightmares. It may be the Martin Luther King Day weekend, but the four-day holiday box office belongs to a queen, and her name is Mama.
