BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Jurassic World looks set to take in a colossal sum when it's released next month.
The Memorial Day weekend box office total was embarrassingly low.
Marvel's latest superhero opus Avengers: Age of Ultron just passed another huge milestone, earning $1 billion worldwide.
The current landscape of comic book movies makes us wonder who's at the top, and surprisingly, it's not who we thought.
Furious 7 just overtook Transformers: Age of Extinction as the number one grossing movie in China.
Anyone who has paid even a modicum of attention already knew that Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron is going to be a huge blockbuster. But as it turns out, it may be even bigger than anyone thought, as advanced ticket sales are freakishly massive. Like Hulk-sized.
Young people have stopped going to the movies as much as they used to, and theaters owners think they know why.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is already on track to put up huge box office numbers in the U.S., but by the time it touches down on American shores it will already have a nice chunk of change in the bank as a gargantuan international haul is also expected.
You probably know this, but in less than a week, Furious 7 has already made a ridiculous sum of money. But this is only the beginning, and it looks like the latest installment in the adrenaline-fueled franchise could become the first movie of 2015 to cross the $1 billion mark.
In the filmmaking world, America has spent decades as the center of the industry, with Hollywood long considered the home of cinema and the box office market seen as the most important in the world. In recent years, however, the tide has begun to change.
Regardless of any controversy that has spurred in the media, the film continues to have enormous success, and now has broke yet another huge box office record.
Despite dwindling movie ticket sales last year in light of more eclectic streaming options and illegal downloads, it looks like theaters will be able to bounce back from this.
In 2009 the Academy decided to increase its Best Picture nominees from five to 10, with the goal of bringing in more of the higher-grossing studio films that have largely not been included. However, increasingly lower collective box office numbers among Best Picture nominees suggests the Academy is still not recognizing movies people really care about.
Given the buzz leading up to the feature adaptation of E.L. James' Fifty Shades of Grey, it should come as little surprise that the film performed very well at the box office for its Thursday night preview, racking up a cool $8.6 million. That makes it the second-highest Thursday night preview ever.
Some people love seeing giant movies fail miserably. The same, however, cannot be said for the studios behind these mega-pictures, the latest of which The Seventh Son, just opened this weekend to very low numbers. Not only that, they're far worse than anyone could have expected.
Despite it’s Golden Globes snub, Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper continues to break box-office records, in addition to holding its six Oscar nominations. While the 2015 Super Bowl dominated discussions this past weekend, people were apparently still heading out to theaters. What were most of them seeing? The film about the deadliest sniper in U.S. history.
Clint Eastwood's latest film American Sniper has been killing it since its wide release hit theaters last weekend. Not only has it made a ton of money, it also broke records for movie openings in the month of January. And the war-drama isn't even close to surrendering yet, as new information suggests its about to make even more substantial money and break, yet, even more records.
The newest Bradley Cooper film American Sniper opened in theaters last night, immediately proving itself to be a major box office contender. If it can manage to keep up at its current pace, and projections say it likely will, it could end up making the studios a mountain of cash.
The Interview actually ended up losing Sony quite a hefty amount of money because of its savaged cinematic release. In fact it lost them $30 million.
While The Interview was certainly not the first film to do this, because it was in the limelight, a debate arose of whether or not VOD release could trump over theatrical release and if the combination of the two is beneficial.
