    Summer 2013 Box Office Wrap: Winners and Losers, Lessons Learned

    Soon after the summer season started off strong four months ago with the launch of giant Marvel sequel "Iron Man 3," the story shifted from scoring a $5 billion at the box office to Steven Spielberg's forecast of apocalypse, as too many big-budget behemoths were tanking.

    Box Office: 'One Direction' Number One; Audience Got Away From 'Get Away' & Latched To 'Instructions Not Included'

    If last weekend was a whimper, this one is a sigh and a groan, and then a brief shimmering light of hope. Considering the normal lackluster of Labor Day box office, we didn't have high expectations. When we read that the top contender was a One Direction documentary (helmed by Morgan Spurlock) we gr...

    Sony Concert Doc 'One Direction' Boosts Labor Day Weekend Box Office, 'Closed Circuit' Flops

    Forget the September doldrums. Sony's Brit boy band 3-D concert film "One Direction" was a solid number one. And major support came from four strong holdovers: "The Butler," "We're the Millers," "Planes" and "Elysium." All told, the three days will come in with about $84 million for the top 10, up $...

    Box Office Top Ten: 'The Butler,' 'We're the Millers' Lead Solid Late Summer Weekend; 'Mortal Instruments' Another Sony Also-Ran

    The end of season returns show that audiences can be satisfied with something beyond just the more hyped franchise entries that dominated most of the last few months, many of which failed to satisfy over a period when increased total grosses came with higher budgets. "The Butler" and "We're the Mill...

    Arthouse Audit: 'The Grandmaster' and 'Short Term 12' Lead Openers

    This week's openings didn't reach the heights of the strongest mid-summer specialized releases, but two did solid initial business. Weinstein's "The Grandmaster" and Cinedigm's "Short Term 12" both have a ways to go before they're hits, but each grabbed decent sampling and critical heft to boost the...

    Box Office: 'Lee Daniels' The Butler' Withstands 'The World's End' & 'The Mortal Instruments' To Take #1 For Second Week

    The end of summer is nigh and it's going out with a whimper (although this weekend's gross is up 16% since last year). The openers (even the third installment of the Cornetto Trilogy) couldn't compete with an Oprah and Weinstein Company-endorsed historical drama and a comedy featuring a Jennifer Ani...
