Box Office Based on the Bible or not, Noah was a big draw for moviegoers this past weekend, dominating the box office with a $43.7 million debut, the fourth highest of 2014. The movie was not only a coup for Paramount, but for title star Russell Crowe and director Darren Aronofsky: Noah is the highest opening ever for a Crowe-led movie and it earned more than Aronofsky's first movie movies put together!
Divergent took second, adding $25.6 million to its total, which nears the $100 million mark. Divergent actually had more staying power than similar Ya movies, dropping 53% in week two versus, e.g., The Hunger Games, which dropped 62% in its second week in theaters. Muppets Most Wanted took third with $11.3 million, while Mr. Peabody & Sherman came in fourth with $9 million. Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which opens this week in the States, opened internationally to an impressive $75.2 million.

Dennis Haysbert of 24 and The Unit fame is taking over the role of Manute, a part played by the late Michael Clarke Duncan, other replacements include Josh Brolin who is taking over Clive Owens Dwight and Jamie Chung will now wield Miho’s sword replacing Devon Aoki.

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is, like it’s predecessor, based on graphic novels by co-director Frank Miller, who helms the films alongside Robert Rodriguez. Violent, racy and extremely stylized, Sin City became a cult hit when it was released in 2005, and the neo-noir tone and aesthetic found in the original film continue in the sequel.
