The Academy Still Isn't Recognizing Movies People Care About, According To Math

That makes it the second-highest Thursday night preview ever.

Hollywood Faces A Record-Setting Box Office Slump, Despite Guardians Of The Galaxy Boost
While August has classically been considered a weak spot on the Hollywood release date schedule, with studios regularly using the time as a sort of dumping ground for blockbusters they don't have much faith in, that hasn't been the case so far in 2014. The month got off to a hot start with the release of Marvel Studios' record-setting Guardians of the Galaxy, and a second week boost came in the form of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

47 Ronin Off To A Slow Start At The Japanese Box Office
Unfortunately, it doesnít look like Carl Rinschís Japanese historical fantasy 47 Ronin will be adding much to that total, at least not in Japan, where the film took in a mere $1.3 million from its premiere. On the one hand, you think it would be a major project there since itís based on a Japanese legend, but on the other hand, itís a completely ludicrous take on the legend which probably didnít appease everyone they intended.
