What happens when two new releases that look like sure-things smash into the unstoppable wall that is a Pixar movie? Well, you get one second place hit and one severe disappointment. 'The Heat' still looks good next to the continued success of 'Monsters University,' but it made 'White House Down' stumbling at the starting line look all the more horrible.
Zombies may be really hot right now, but there's one thing that is (and probably always will be) a bigger deal: Pixar. Brad Pitt's 'World War Z' performed quite well in its opening weekend, but even the biggest zombie movie of all time couldn't keep pace with 'Monsters University.'
When George Lucas handed the reins of 'Star Wars' over to Disney, it was understood that the man behind the most popular science fiction universe of all time would only be involved in 'Star Wars: Episode 7' in a limited capacity. However, we didn't realize just how limited it was! Lucas recently spoke out about his involvement in 'Star Wars: Episode 7' and revealed that he hasn't spoken to director J.J. Abrams. Like, at all.
After months of feverish anticipation and a marketing campaign that left everyone at ScreenCrush practically speechless, 'Man of Steel' has arrived (amidst a flurry of mixed reviews) and taken its place at the top of the box office chart. Although the latest Superman film broke June box office records, it's yet to be seen whether or not the film is truly prepared for the long road ahead.
We've all had that teacher at least once in our lives. You know the one. The oddball. The eccentric. The one whose bizarre worldview and teaching methods have a lasting (and not always positive) impact on his or her students. However, the award for the year's strangest teacher undoubtedly has to go to Jean-Baptiste Clément, a sixth grade math teacher who subjected his students to James Wan's horror film 'Saw.'
For the second week in a row, a David has taken down a Goliath. Last week, a little magician thriller handily derailed a Will Smith juggernaut and this week, the tiny horror film 'The Purge' took 'The Internship' down a peg or a dozen. We're one month in and this summer movie season has already given us plenty of surprises at the box office.
Whether you're referring to Stephen King's original novel or the 1976 Brian De Palma film, one mention of 'Carrie' conjures up images of bloody, psychic vengeance during a high school prom. For this reason, all of the marketing for director Kimberly Peirce's take on the material has focused on the final chunk of the film, where bullied teen Carrie White unleashes her supernatural powers on an unsuspecting populace. The newest poster doesn't stray from this formula.
How rare is it for a Will Smith sci-fi blockbuster to not open at number one at the box office? Also, how horrible must it feel for a Will Smith sci-fi blockbuster to not only get beaten by the second week of a long running franchise about fast cars, but by a magician thriller headlined by Jesse Eisenberg?
What looked like one of the big box office showdowns of the summer turned out to not be battle at all. Not only did 'Fast and Furious 6' take the number one spot at the box office, it did it while shattering records, leaving 'The Hangover Part 3' coughing on its exhaust.
