Box Office: Dawn Of The Sex Tape Of The Planes: Anarchy

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

According to BoxOfficeMojo, America went to the theatres for a second week in a row, saw the poster for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and said "yes please to that again!" to the tune of $36 Million. Consequently, there was also a period of time where people would pay out the ass for anything with monkeys in it to the point where every single comic had at least one gorilla-feuled storyline, and we seem to be in its resurgence. I guess what I'm MORE

Box Office: Apes beat out Transformers

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

True story: The other day, I was on a pad thai binge after a day of work, and I'm pretty sure I ate enough to fill a bucket. Literally a bucket of pad thai. I was bloated, aching, and supremely ashamed of myself for not being able to recognize my own personal limitations, and as soon as I got home I hate half a pint of Ben & Jerry's Coffee Toffee Crunch. I guess what I'm trying to say is that, according to BoxOfficeMojo, Dawn of the Planet of MORE

Box Office: The world throws $201 Million at ‘Transformers 4′

Transformers: Age of Extinction

Transformers: Age of Extinction was the only major release this weekend, and for good reason ... long story short, it pretty much obliterated every other movie out there. According to Box Office Mojo, Transformers made $100 Million at the American box office this weekend, an $201 Million around the world. So apparently, audiences everywhere were just waiting for the day where Shia Laboeuf was replaced by a giant robot dinosaur. Guy who gets MORE

Box Office: ‘Think Like a Man Too’ #1, ‘Jersey Boys’ #4

Think Like a Man Too

Think Like a Man Too was the big winner at the box office this weekend according to Box Office Mojo, earning $30 Million in its debut and clearing its initial budget. Now, here's an honest to gawd question, because it needs to be asked: I know this series is based, however tenuously, on Steve Harvey's book Act Like A Lady, Think Like a Man. But who the hell goes to Steve Harvey for dating advice? He's Steve Harvey. I know he hosts Family Feud, MORE

Box Office: ’22 Jump Street’ hits #1, ‘Dragon 2′ takes #2

22 Jump Street

Two major summer sequels premiered at the movies this weekend, but according to BoxOfficeMojo, 22 Jump Street with Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill came out on top with a $60 Million opening weekend. Also, I realized this when I was cobbling the title together, but there's a disturbing amount of numbers-based movie titles this week. Which brings me to... How To Train Your Dragon 2, which debuted at number two with $50 Million. Apparently, some MORE

Box Office: ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ shoots to the top

The Fault In Our Stars

If there's one thing I learned from watching box office trends, it's to never underestimate the power of a teen romance novel. (Fun fact: teenagers still read. See? We're not horribly screwed after all!) As was the case with the Twilight saga, The Fault In Our Stars managed to dominate the box office this week according to BoxOfficeMojo, taking in $48.2 Million in its first week on a budget of only $12 Million. Yes, they already made a profit MORE

Box Office: ‘Maleficent’ spreads its wings

Angelina Jolie is Maleficent

Number one at the box office this weekend was Maleficent, taking in $70,000 in its opening week. According to BoxOfficeMojo, this is Angelina Jolie's biggest opening weekend ever, which is good because she's been plugging the hell out of this thing for months. She worked to fill those seats, and she earned every penny. And now, I'm going to sit and wait for Disney to release the origin story of Ursula the Sea Witch, starring Latrice Royale. (In MORE

Guess what the highest-grossing movie of 2013 was?


Oh who are we kidding, we all know it was Iron Man 3. I know. Sorry for the spoilers. Except not really, because Marvel is a gawddamn island in and of itself, and it's basically become the film industry's show pony. Oh, and number two was Despicable Me 2, because people love tic-tac shaped creatures. That wasn't sarcastic; those minions are f*cking ADORABLE. Via HuffPo ... 1. Iron Man 3 - $1,215,439,994 2. Despicable Me 2 - $918,573,535 3. MORE

Justin Bieber’s ‘Believe’ documentary bombed. Hard.

Justin Bieber Believe

I'll be completely straight with you: I have not seen Justin Bieber's new documentary Believe, nor do I have any intention of ever seeing it because why the hell should I? Even the Beliebers who actually like Justin didn't bother going out to see it, because according to RadarOnline, it bombed at the box office. It bombed hard, which kind of makes you wonder if that whole "retirement" thing Justin keeps harping on about might actually come MORE

Iron Man 3: The second-highest opening weekend ever

Iron Man 3

After The Avengers earned so much money that Disney started using $20 bills as napkins, it probably shouldn't be too surprising that Iron Man 3 followed in its footsteps with a massive opening weekend, the second-highest after (guess?) The Avengers. Box Office Mojo reports ... Kicking off the Summer movie season this weekend, Iron Man 3 lived up to sky-high expectations with an estimated $175.3 million haul. That ranks second all-time behind MORE

What are 2012′s biggest box office flops?

The Oogieloves In The Big Balloon Adventure

If the dwindling number of pages on your Far Side calendar hasn't tipped you off yet, 2012 is almost over, and it's almost time for us to wrap up the year with lists! LISTS EVERYWHERE! Well, here's a taste of things to come, as the A/V Club has compiled a list of the biggest 2012 box office flops. 1. The Oogieloves In The Big Balloon Adventure (Box office: $1 million / Budget: $20 million) 2. A Thousand Words (Box office: $20 million / MORE

Box Office: ‘Taken 2′ is still #1

Liam Neeson in 'Taken 2'

Taken 2 held onto the number one spot at the box office this weekend for a second time, raking in $22.5 Million. For those of you who are interested in the movie but not quite willing to pay to see it, this is probably how it went: Someone takes Lima Neeson's daughter. "GIVE ME BACK MY DAUGHTER!" Running punching running punching running kicking running punching. "GIVE ME BACK MY DAUGHTER!" Guns guns guns guns guns bad guy dies. "I HAVE MY MORE

Box Office: ‘Taken 2′ is tops!

Taken 2

First off, Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians! Or, to the Americans, Happy (*snicker*) Columbus Day. No, really, it's totally cool that you guys celebrate a guy who never actually stepped foot in the United States. (And yes, I know, he did land on Puerto Rico once. But it's just not the same ...) Anyway, Taken 2 managed to take first place at the Box Office this weekend with $50 Million, which I'm sure came entirely from people who MORE

Box Office: Hotel Transylvania checks in at #1

Hotel Transylvania

After two complete and total failures at the box office, Adam Sandler may have finally figured out how to actually pull in some money: by completely removing himself from the picture. Hotel Transylvania earned $43 Million over the weekend, which is not only his highest debut since The Longest Yard, but also the highest grossing weekend ever for September... although technically, we are in October. Still, not too shabby. Looper has been getting MORE
