Frank Miller's "Sin City" Chronicles return after a nine year big screen absence to hopefully prove that R rated action movies work better than watered-down PG-13's do, Sony hopes "When The Game Stands Tall" recalls the glory of "Friday Night Lights" and "Remember The Titans" and Chloe Grace Moretz headlines "If I Stay" for Warners.

The most interesting indie release of the week is surely "Love Is Strange", a relationship drama with Alfred Molina and John Lithgow from "Married Life" director Ira Sachs. Also opening this week are VOD day-and-date releases "The One I Love" with Mark Duplass and "Are You Here" with Owen Wilson and Zach Galifianakis

There's nothing like an opening in China to move a film back up the box office standings. Languishing "How To Train Your Dragon 2" got a Beijing Boost this weekend, pulling in almost $26 million from that country, allowing the film to take the #1 spot on the International Box Office charts. "Expendables 3" was far less lucky.

Fox still occupies the #1 spot at the studio market share race this week and with upcoming titles such as "Gone Girl", Penguins of Madagascar" and "Exodus" the group on Motor Drive will be tough to beat. Disney, currently sitting in the Place position, doesn't have another wide release until mid October, so Fox's lead seems safe for now.

Well it was nice while it lasted. Hollywood's return to glory days of the past three weeks came to a clunking halt this weekend as none of the three new openers could unseat returnees "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and "Guardians of the Galaxy"

Perhaps the 7pm late shows last night were past most of the stars', and therefore their fans', bedtimes but "Expendables 3" limped to a late show gross of only $875,000, barely topping Weinstein's "The Giver" and falling short of "Let's Be Cops" late shows of $1.2 million on Tuesday night.

There's a good chance that, for the first time this summer, we won't have a new opener crack the top two at the box office. Although "Expendables", "Let's Be Cops" and "The Giver" are on pace to open to three day numbers in the high teens or low 20's, it may not be enough to unseat Mikey, Donnie, Rocket Raccoon, and a talking tree.

Ok so they're not actually octogenarians (although I wouldn't mind checking Sly's birth certificate, just to be sure) but they are "The Expendables 3" and they're back for more mirth and mayhem. In addition, the latest stab at the young adult novel crowd, "The Giver" debuts, as does Fox's fake-fuzz comedy, "Let's Be Cops"
