It’s taken a few months, but we just got our first box office bomb of 2013.
We still have to wait a day to see The Amazing Spider-Man, but the flick's already open in several overseas markets and it's doing great. How great? Well, in at least one of those markets it managed to top the opening weekend of Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
Regardless of what you might think of the movies this young actress makes, or of her relative talents, she chooses hits—and she's made herself indispensable to one of the biggest franchises of the past 25 years. Seems like falling in love with sparklevamps is a rather profitable endeavor.
The Battleship has been sunk. The experts were expecting the boardgame-inspired alien invasion flick to have a soft U.S. opening this weekend, but no one thought it'd be quite this bad.
The year's first big box office bomb has already dropped in Disney's John Carter, and prognosticators think the board game-inspired alien invasion flick Battleship could be the next to crash and burn—mostly because of Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
Last week we got a hint of The Avengers' might when we saw its colossal pre-sale numbers at U. S. ticket outlets. Now the film is open in 39 territories worldwide, and it's crushing records everywhere. The only question is: will it do the same here?
With its 3D rerelease, George Lucas' first chapter in the Star Wars prequel trilogy has become the 11th highest grossing film of all time and on track to overtake The Dark Knight in a matter of weeks, if not days. And that's just unacceptable.
We're all looking forward to a new year, but movie studios are probably especially happy that 2011 is ending. It wasn't kind to them. Ticket sales were down four percent from 2010, thanks in large part to a number of major movie flops, including a few notable sci-fi releases that didn't do as well as expected.
Some films are hits and others are flops—but the low-budget horror flick Creature couldn't scare enough people into each theater to fill a decent-sized minivan.
Final figures are in, and it's Kick-Ass by a nose.
