'Lucy' Knocks Out 'Hercules' at the Weekend Box Office

27 July 2014 5:31 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

More people wanted to watch fully-clothed Scarlett Johansson punching mobsters than a mostly-shirtless Dwayne Johnson drop-kicking giant boars.

According to the action sci-fi thriller Lucy, using more than 10% of your brain's full capacity can allow you to bend the laws of physics and stop time. It also allows Scarlett Johansson to thoroughly trounce Dwayne Johnson in the battle for box-office supremacy.

1. Lucy – $44 million. Who could have guessed that a lot of people would want to watch Scarlett Johansson beat the hell out of a bunch of dudes? That's exactly what happened this weekend. While $44 million isn't record setting, director Luc Besson – creator of The Fifth Element and Leon: The Professional – was able to create a blockbuster epic on a relatively modest $40 million budget.

Sandra Bullock Turns 50! Her 9 Best Movies, Ranked

26 July 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Celebrating America's Sweetheart by remembering her greatest moments

It’s hard to believe Sandra Bullock is turning 50 years old today! Because really, it’s been that long and also, she looks ah-mazing!

But then if we take a step back, we remember that America’s Sweetheart has been entertaining us for over 25 years. Of course, there have been some missteps (let's not talk about All About Steve or Speed 2) but for the most part, her track record is solid. So solid, we’re having a hard time ranking them, but let’s give it a go anyway!

9. The Blind Side: An inspiring tale and one of the few times Sandy went blonde. Plus, she won her first Oscar for this so how could it not make the list?!

8. Gravity: This was not an easy movie. She literally had to carry the whole thing by herself and much of it was just closeups. Well, good thing »

NewFest 2014: Rubber, Leather, Hookers, and Cupcakes

25 July 2014 6:41 PM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

If you still have an affinity for books, there can be few more choice summer reads than Edmund White's 2005 autobiography, My Lives. Divided into nonlinear sections devoted to his relationships with his parents, his hustlers, and his female entanglements, there's also a chapter entitled "My Europe." Herein White notes how while in the Paris of the 1980s, he became aware that petite green beans are tastier than their larger cousins. He also recounts how the social theorist Michel Foucault, a pal of his, noted that while "'gay philosophy' and 'gay paintings' were meaningless notions...writing gay fiction was legitimate since it enabled us to imagine how gay men should live together."

Foucault apparently "felt that relationships between gay men were tenuous, undefined, still to be invented, and that gay fiction was the place where a vision of association could be worked out in concrete detail."

The same could be said of Lgbt cinema, »

Comic-Con: Cumberbatch in Con debut

24 July 2014 4:24 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Benedict Cumberbatch earned a rapturous reception from the adoring masses in Hall H during his maiden Comic-Con appearance at the DreamWorks Animation panel on Thursday (24) and hinted at future visits.

When asked by an audience member towards the end of the panel – the first by a Hollywood studio at this year’s show – if he would return as Sherlock next year, the British actor said “Possibly.”

To the business at hand. Cumberbatch was in San Diego to talk up his first ever voice role in an animation. He plays Classified, a secret agent wolf who aids the eponymous Penguins Of Madagascar, due out in November.

“I like the idea of unpacking a spy and trying to make him more human, if that makes sense with a wolf,” he said.

Cumberbatch said he jumped at the chance to work with John Malkovich, another Comic-Con debutant in attendance who voices the part of the villainous Dave the octopus.

Box Office Weekend: Purge Fails to Budge Apes From Top Spot

20 July 2014 9:27 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The evolution of apes was still a big enough draw to keep away the de-evolution of society, as Dawn of the Planet of the Apes topped The Purge: Anarchy at the box office. While The Purge: Anarchy suffered a lot more at the hands of critics, both sequels are doing very well at the box office; Dawn of the Planet of the Apes picked up an additional estimated $36 million and closes in domestic success (though it has been successful counting worldwide sales), while The Purge: Anarchy earned an estimated $28.4 million, which is actually a grand success considering its $9 million budget.

Following in their wake are two far less successful debuts; Planes: Fire & Rescue made an estimated $18 million on a $50 million budget, and Sex Tape made an estimated $15 million on a $40 million budget, and neither are getting much help from critical acclaim.

The other six films in the top ten are »

Weekend Box Office: 'Dawn of the Apes' Tops 'Purge' and 'Sex Tape' For Second #1

20 July 2014 8:46 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes lands in the #1 spot for the second weekend in a row, bringing in $36 million, raising its domestic cume to $138 million in ten days, but one newcomer did hold its own in the face of the apes... The Purge: Anarchy proves people don't care if they didn't like the first film in a franchise, you promise more of the same and they'll show up in hordes. The sequel to last year's The Purge brought in an estimated $28.3 million, which is less than the $34 million the previous film opened with a year ago, but when you more than triple your production budget in three days I think you've done something right. Of course, the production budget is one thing, the marketing budget on this thing had to be huge. Next up, another animated family film fails to inspire parents to take their kids to the »

'The Purge: Anarchy' Tops Friday Box Office, 'Apes' Likely to Take Weekend

19 July 2014 10:51 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Well, it seems despite the fact people didn't like 2013's The Purge that hasn't had much of an effect on the box office prospects of The Purge: Anarchy, which not only topped Friday's box office with an estimated $13 million, but scored a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, much better than the first film's "C". However, the Friday number is down $3.7 million from the first film and the sequel cost Universal $6 million more to produce. Then again, we're talking about a $9 million budget here, which is likely to be tripled by the end of the three day... not too shabby. In second was Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which is likely to eek above The Purge and take the weekend box office with a shade over $30 million or so. Disney's Planes: Fire & Rescue is performing similarly to The Purge in that it is a sequel to a »
