Box Office Breakdown: ‘Hobbit’ Sequel Victorious Over ‘Anchorman 2’

Athough much buzz was drummed up for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (not to mention all the appearances Will Ferrell made as Ron Burgundy for promotional purposes), it was not enough to overshadow the draw of the sequel to last year's The Hobbit. The latest installment of the Lord of the Rings series took in $31.5 million, securing its second consecutive week at number one. Anchorman 2 took in a respectable $26.7 million in its debut weekend while Frozen fell …

Box Office Breakdown: ‘Frozen’ Proves No Match for ‘Catching Fire’

Despite an impressive jump from its debut at the twenty-second spot to number two this week, Frozen didn't make enough money to overtake last week's number one winner The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The sequel to The Hunger Games took in $74.5 million, a good $8 million more than Frozen, which earned $66.7 million this weekend. Thor: The Dark World fell one spot to number three with $11.1 million while The Best Man Holiday also …

Box Office Breakdown: ‘Riddick’ Fights to the Top, One Direction Falls

This summer has been good to Vin Diesel. His film Fast & Furious 6 dominated the box office in the beginning of the season, and now Riddick looks to rake in film-goers' cash in the tail end of it. Earning $19 million secured the sci-fi thriller the top spot while Lee Daniels' The Butler remained at number two with $8.4 million. Instructions Not Included jumped one spot to number three with $8.1 million, bumping We're …

Box Office Breakdown: One Direction Film Claims Number One Spot

Oscar buzz-worthy dramas like Lee Daniels' The Butler are apparently no match for One Direction fans. The concert documentary - which debuted this Labor Day weekend - took in $17 million, reducing Lee Daniels' The Butler to second place with $14.7 million. We're the Millers also dropped one place - from two to three - with $12.6 million in its fourth week while Planes also fell one spot to number four with $7.7 million. Instructions Not Included debuted in fifth …

Review: ‘Post Tenebras Lux’ Lacks Heart, Underwhelms

What I mistook as ambition and mythology for Carlos Reygadas' decision to title his film, Post Tenebras Lux, in Latin ("Light After Darkness") was simply pretentiousness. Though the movie - shot in a 1:33 ratio - was undoubtedly as stunning as a Terrence Malick film, the semi-autobiographic pic was as self-indulgent as a Tyler Perry flick. The Mexican film - which won the Best Director award at last year's Cannes Film Festival - is comprised …

Box Office Breakdown: ‘Now You See Me,’ ‘After Earth’ Trail Behind

Neither magic tricks nor an futuristic-yet-abysmal Will Smith vehicle were enough to bring Fast & Furious 6 down from its number one position. The car thriller held its own in its second week at the theaters with $34.5 million while newcomers Now You See Me and After Earth just couldn't make the cut to the top spot. The Louis Leterrier-helmed Now You See Me placed second with $28 million while M. Night Shyamalan's After Earth …

Lincoln Leads Oscar Nominations

Lincoln leads the Oscar nominations after being named in 12 categories. Emma Stone and Seth MacFarlane unveiled the shortlist for this year's Academy Awards earlier today, and the Steven Spielberg-directed biopic - which stars Daniel Day-Lewis as pioneering President Abraham Lincoln - leads the way, followed closely by Life of Pi, which is up for 11 honors. Both movies are up for the prestigious Best Picture Oscar, but will face competition from Amour, Argo, Beasts …

Will Ferrell is the ‘Muhammad Ali of Improv’

Will Ferrell is the "Muhammad Ali of improv." The comedian stars in Matt Piedmont's Casa de mi Padre, a Spanish language Mexican telenovela, and although the motion picture was a huge challenge for Will, the director says he rose to the occasion beautifully. "For Will it was surely a Heart of Darkness in that he pulled off something almost impossible that surely caused him night sweats: having to act in a very specific Northern Mexican …

Box Office Breakdown: Snow White Slays Competition

Is it Chris Hemsworth's amazing hair? Was it the aggressive marketing campaign? Is Kristen Stewart actually a box office draw? Whatever it was, something prompted movie-goers this weekend to spend their dollars towards Snow White and the Huntsman -- approximately $56.2 million of them. Men in Black 3, therefore, was bumped down from its short-lived number one spot to number two with $29.3 million. Marvel's The Avengers dropped to number three with a decent $20.2 …

Box Office Breakdown: Hill-Tatum Bromance Gets the Jump on The Lorax

It took a few weeks, but a new film has finally pushed The Lorax off its perch at number one: 21 Jump Street. The reimagined film adaptation of the popular 80's television series of the same name, 21 Jump Street took in $35 million at the box office this weekend, well ahead of the $22.8 million last week's top film -- The Lorax -- earned. Disney's latest live-action film John Carter was bumped back one …
