Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Elysium’ Wins a Busy Weekend

In a weekend with four new major releases but no definitive frontrunners, the Matt Damon sci-fi action flick 'Elysium' snagged the top spot over some seemingly powerful competition. Director Neill Blomkamp's film continues this summer's trend of R-rated fare opening big ('The Purge,' 'The Conjuring,' '2 Guns') and proves that there's plenty of box office success to be had in the typically slow final weeks of the season.

‘Mission: Impossible 5′: Christopher McQuarrie Confirms Directing Gig

Has ‘Star Trek 3′ Found Its Director in Rupert Wyatt?

Yesterday we heard the rumor that John M. Chu, director of 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' was one of the names being considered for the vacated 'Star Trek 3' captain's chair. That rumor was quickly shot down, but now a new name has risen to the forefront of the conversation: 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' helmer Rupert Wyatt. But how close is this to actually happening?

‘We’re the Millers’ Review

'We're the Millers' is a vexing film. It's just funny enough to keep from being truly bad, but too preposterous and predictable to be anything close to good. For every laugh there's something that will make you want to hurl an object at the screen. When it flubs, it flubs hard, allowing each of the four main characters a chance to embarrass themselves. And yet, if you wait 'til the next scene, there's the possibility that whoever just served up a would-be joke in a humiliating fashion will do something inspired. As such, 'We're the Millers' wins some respect for at least being a very odd moviegoing experience.

Weekend Box Office Report: ’2 Guns’ Shoots Down ‘The Smurfs 2′

Ah, the continuing appeal of the one and only Denzel Washington. How much do people love this guy? They love him so much that they'll transform just about any movie he appears in into a respectable hit, even if that movie is a poorly marketed (but well-reviewed) action movie based on a comic book that no one read. We shouldn't be surprised that '2 Guns' shot to the top of the box office, but we are a little. Oh, Denzel Washington, you always catch us off guard.

‘Elysium’ Review

Here's one of my favorite jokes of all time. There's no punchline, it's just a sentence. "I've been rich and miserable, and I've been poor and miserable. And I'll tell ya: rich is better."

I don't know if this is what director Neill Blomkamp had in mind as the ultimate message of 'Elysium,' his visually stunning follow-up to 'District 9,' but beneath the dazzling spectacle, there isn't much else beyond that aphorism to cling to.

Michael B. Jordan to Star in ‘Rocky’ Spinoff ‘Creed’

The 'Rocky' franchise had its fair share of ups and downs over the course of six great-to-awful films, but 2006's 'Rocky Balboa' seemed to definitively close the door on the story of Sylvester Stallone's good-natured boxer. However, it turns out that the saga isn't over quite yet!

A spinoff titled 'Creed' is in the works and it will follow the grandson of Apollo Creed, the champion boxer and chief rival/best friend of Rocky Balboa.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘The Conjuring’ Conjures Up a Massive Opening

There was a lot of buzz surrounding James Wan's 'The Conjuring' going into this weekend. "Scariest movie of the year." "Best horror movie in a long time." And so on. But it paid off. 'The Conjuring' not only won the box office, it won the box office in a way that R-rated horror movies often don't. Between this and 'The Purge,' R-rated horror is officially back in a big way.
