Although Ender’s Game received a strong reception from moviegoers (Rotten Tomatoes has it at 78%), its $28 million domestic is slightly disappointing, considering it cost an estimated $110 million to produce.

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 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, [...]

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).

Charlie Sheen). Estevez, who [...]

Insidious: Chapter 2 continues the hot streak of The Conjuring filmmaker James Wan, as it easily beat out the competition to rake in $41 million at the box-office.
