Ted, a 2012 comedy headlined by Mark Wahlberg and a vulgar, raunchy teddy bear, was a creative and financial boon for filmmaker/screenwriter Seth MacFarlane. The film is one of the top grossing comedies of all time, earning over $218 million at the domestic box office. Although he misfired last year with A Million Ways to [...]
Furious 7 continues to dominate the box office all over the world. The movie has grossed over $1 billion worldwide. Film audiences just can’t seem to get enough of The Fast and the Furious franchise. We spoke to Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, who told us there are many reasons why he thinks audiences loves the [...]
Currently riding high at the top of the weekend box-office chart, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES is yet another reboot of the perennially popular comic book characters that first appeared on the pop culture scene in 1984. Originally conceived by KEVIN EASTMAN and PETER LAIRD for Mirage Studios, the story centered on four teen anthropomorphic turtles [...]
Far and away the biggest performer at this week-end’s box-office, TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION is the fourth film in the series directed by MICHAEL BAY and estimated to have taken in a whopping $100M. And, while cast members in this CGI uber-franchise may come and go, it has always been (for better or worse) largely [...]
Thor: The Dark Wold was the resounding box office winner over the weekend, as the Chris Hemsworth headlined feature took in $86.1 million. Budgeted at $170 million, the movie has already made over $240 million, with a worldwide gross totaling $327 million. With such great numbers, another installment of Thor should be in the [...]

Coming in second is Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, which already has a worldwide gross of $79.66 million. This weekend, Bad Grandpa took in $20.5 [...]
It took Johnny Knoxville to knock Sandra Bullock and George Clooney off their box office throne, as Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa took in $32 million in its first weekend. Gravity didn’t go home a loser either, as the flick took in $20.3 million to capture second place. Unfortunately, The Counselor’s star power of Michael [...]
Gravity continues its dominating hold on the box office with a third straight week at number one, as the film took in $31.03 million to beat out Captain Phillips (#2, $17.3 million) and Carrie (#3, $17 million). The combo of near geriatric action stars Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger failed to entice a sizable audience, [...]
Gravity retained the top spot as it made $44 million over the weekend for a total domestic gross of over $123 million. It’s Sandra Bullock’s second hit this year, as it follows the successful summer comedy The Heat.
Tom Hanks’ latest film Captain Phillips came in second with $26 million. It’s an improvement over last [...]
Putting Sandra Bullock in a space suit was a creative coup for director Alfonso Cuaron and the bigwigs at Warner Bros., as Gravity debuted at the #1 spot with $55.55 million. That figure bests the October openings of such hit films as Ted ($54 million) and Valentine’s Day ($56 million).
