Quentin Tarantino Lists Top Films of 2013, Including 'The Lone Ranger' and 'This is the End'

Quentin Tarantino sat out the ten best lists last year because he was in fevered production on "Django Unchained." This year he has already posted his alphabetical ten best list of 2013 so far on his site. While the Oscar-winner is an Academy member, don't look for his taste to be replicated by the Academy at large.

'Man of Steel' Opens to Second Best Gross of 2013; 'Bling Ring' Debut Glitters

"Man of Steel," Warner Bros.' reboot of the "Superman" franchise, grossed a super $44 million on Friday (including midnight shows, but not Thursday evening Walmart-promotion screenings, which took in an addition $12 million). This is just under two-thirds of the opening day of "Iron Man 3," which was similarly enhanced by premium 3-D and IMAX ticket prices. "The Dark Knight Rises" last July, which confronted the Aurora tragedy its opening day, did over $75 million with no 3-D.
