With summer slouching towards its sweltering end, Hollywood is throwing everything and the kitchen sink into theaters, hoping something will magically turn into blockbuster gold. Unfortunately for them, Peter Travers is back with his trusty Scum Bucket — and he's itching to fight these films back and vanquish the 10 worst movies of August.
First up is The November Man, in which Pierce Brosnan plays a spy nowhere near as cool as James Bond and who's stuck doing the same old boring action movie stuff (like screaming, "Run!"). Next is the latest in the Step Up series, »

At an early Academy screening of The Wolf of Wall Street, a screen-writer approaches Martin Scorsese after the movie and screamed at him, “how could you? You’re disgusting.” We can only imagine that Scorsese’s first thought was, “No, I’m Martin Scorsese.” Whether it be mob politics, child prostitution, the weighing of show girls, or highly controversial interpretations of some fairly important religious texts, the director has always handled morally dubious material. The only difference with The Wolf of Wall Street was that this time it looked like a lot more fun.
The critic’s point was that the movie seemed to glamorize the hedonistic, grotesque lifestyle of these men, who had made their money dirtily and who didn’t treat each other or their families any better. But really, what else did he expect? For one thing, The Wolf of Wall Street was based on actual events »

Exclusive: New Line Cinema has optioned the inspirational true story of ballet prodigy Misty Copeland, who fought against the odds to become the only the second African-American female soloist to dance with the prestigious American Ballet Theatre. Offspring Entertainment’s Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot alongside Phil Sandhaus will produce the feature film adapted from Copeland’s bestselling memoir Life In Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina, which Stephanie Allain and Lenore Kletter are set to script.
In what’s shaping up to be The Blind Side set in the dance world, the film will chronicle Copeland’s striking rise to dance stardom. The late bloomer began training in ballet at age 13 while living in a welfare motel with her mother and siblings, learning so quickly she was dancing en pointe within months. She went from lessons at the local Boys & Girls Club to living part-time with a sponsor family while attending dance school. »

One of our favorite dance movies of all time is Step Up (and if you don't agree with us, we don't like you and we don't want to be friends with you). Not only did it give birth to the entire Step Up franchise (Moose!), but it also sparked one of the most perfect celebrity couples ever: Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Channing Tatum. It was a match made in heaven...and the dance studio. There's no doubt that the Tatums have killer moves, but what would have happened if they both auditioned for So You Think You Can Dance before they hit it big in Hollywood? "I would like to think I could have held my own," Jenna told E! News after Sytycd's show on Wednesday, where she served as a guest »
Had the $36 million tracking for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles been accurate, Guardians of the Galaxy would have been #1 for a second weekend in a row, as expected. However, like Guardians, Ninja Turtles flew by the tracking number to the tune of $65.5 million in its opening weekend, prompting Paramount to set a 2016 release date for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. Worldwide the Turtles opened to $94.2 million, while Guardians dropped 55.3% in its second weekend, bringing in $42.1 million and its worldwide cume is now up to $313.8 million in only ten days. Elsewhere, Into the Storm brought in $17.3 million in its opening frame, but it is likely to sink like a stone over the coming weekends. The geriatric crowd seemed to enjoy The Hundred-Foot Journey as it brought in a satisfactory $10.9 million on a $22 million budget and fewer and fewer tickets are being purchased for the Step Up movies as the fifth in the franchise, »

Here's a sentence I didn't expect to write: A film starring Megan Fox opened at No. 1 this weekend with an estimated $65.0 million and dethroned a Marvel movie after just one week atop the chart.
I wasn't alone; no one expected the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" reboot to enjoy such a huge debut. Pundits did expect "Guardians of the Galaxy" to fall to about $40 million in its second weekend (in fact, it earned an estimated $41.5 million), but they still thought it would beat "Turtles" in a close contest. Some pundits predicted a "Turtles" tally as low as $34 million, or about half what it actually earned.
After all, it was a competitive weekend, with four new wide releases. "Guardians" had just opened well above expectations, so even with a 56 percent drop in week two, it was still expected to win. And no one thought much of "Turtles" -- not critics, who panned it; not early audiences, »

'Tmnt' won the weekend box office, knocking the beloved 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' into No. 2.
While not a massive surprise, Michael Bay's explosive re-imagining of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles managed to score the top spot at the box office this weekend, knocking the acclaimed Guardians Of The Galaxy down a peg. However, Marvel's space opera was able to fend off three other newcomers.
1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - $65 million. Tmnt was the second film in two weeks to beat projected estimated grosses to an astounding degree. The film was only tracking to make around $45 million. Last week, Guardians opened at $94 million after predictions had it set at $60-70 million. All in all, this has so far been one of the most lucrative Augusts in recent history, despite an overall slower year in ticket sales.

2. Guardians Of The Galaxy – $41.5 million. The film is »
Ninja Turtles fans old and young showed up at the movies this weekend, driving Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to one of the biggest August openings ever.Meanwhile, Guardians of the Galaxy scored the highest second weekend of the Summer so far.The Top 12 earned $174.2 million this weekend, which is up 22 percent from the same frame last year. This August remains on track to be the biggest ever, and could be the first to pass $1 billion.Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ruled the box office with $65.6 million this weekend. That ranks fourth all-time in the month of August. It's noticeably higher than G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra ($54.7 million), though 3D premiums and ticket price inflation likely account for most of that gap. The movie also made more in one weekend than 2007 animated Turtles movie Tmnt earned in its entire run.This strong opening can be attributed primarily to the power of the Ninja Turtles brand. »

<< Continued from "Weekend Report"The Hundred-Foot Journey opened in fourth place with $11 million. That's a bit higher than May's Million Dollar Arm; unfortunately, it paled in comparison to similar August releases like Eat Pray Love ($23.1 million) and Julie & Julia ($20 million). With strong word-of-mouth and an audience that skews much older (69 percent over the age of 35), this should hold up well: a total close to $40 million is possible.Rounding out the Top Five, Lucy fell 48 percent to $9.5 million. To date, the Scarlett Johansson/Luc Besson thriller has grossed $97.5 million, and will pass $100 million sometime this week.Step Up All In tanked with $6.5 million this weekend. That's down 45 percent from the previous installment, which was already the lowest-grossing outing in the franchise. Even with solid international returns, it would be surprising if a sixth Step Up got a theatrical release here in the U.S.Lionsgate/Summit has released six movies at over 2,000 locations this year. »

The latest revival of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opened strongly this weekend at the North American box office. The action flick displaced last weekend’s number one champ Guardians of the Galaxy, which held its ground with a solid second place showing. Warner’s Into the Storm and Disney’s The Hundred-Foot Journey also opened to okay numbers while Step Up: All In proved to have two left feet. Thanks to the arrival of Turtles and the strong second weekend of Guardians, the box office had its second weekend of increased business over totals from not only 2013 (+23%), but also 2012 (+31%).
There have, according to IMDb, been three animated television series, one live action film series that ran from 1990-1993 and an CG-animated reboot from 2007 that preceded the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Despite the endless reincarnations in multiple media formats, it appears that the heroes in a half-shell haven’t lost their appeal. »
Have mutant ninja turtles and Chris Pratt saved the summer of 2014? Well, that may actually be an impossible feat at this point in the box office season, but both "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and "Guardians of the Galaxy" are delivering a welcome late summer surge at your local multiplex. The latter opened to astronomical numbers last weekend. This time those heroes with a half-shell delivered a major surprise. Paramount Pictures' reboot of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" was expected to open somewhere between $45-50 million. Instead, the Michael Bay produced adventure played to a much broader audience than expected and took in an eye-brow raising $65 million over the the three-day frame. That's a much need boost for the studio after the disappointing returns for "Hercules" last month and proves the new deal with "Tmnt" producer Michael Bay wasn't just about more "Transformers" movies. The only concern for Paramount has to be the film's B Cinemascore. »

Admit it, most of you are surprised Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles did so well. I'm sure some of you expected big things, but the easy money was on Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy scoring a second weekend win and while it finished pretty much just where it was expected, Ninja Turtles defied that $36 million tracking to the tune of $65 million this weekend to go along with a rather tame "B" CinemaScore. Looking over the reader predictions, no one thought Turtles would amount to this much, the highest prediction being that of Pj Edwards at $60.2 million. Then again, when you come in $29 million over tracking, it's hard to predict that correctly. The film added another $28.7 million internationally from 19 overall markets. Guardians scored $41.5 million, bringing its domestic cume to $175.9 million in just two days as it's on its way to becoming the highest grossing domestic release of 2014, currently $84 million shy of Captain America: The Winter Soldier »

It was the battle of the superheroes at the box office Friday night, as "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" topped Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy." The Michael Bay-produced "Tmnt" is performing even better than expected, picking up $25.6 million on Friday night, which will likely snowball into somewhere in the $65 million range by Monday. The Paramount/Nickelodeon film will easily surpass the lifetime gross of the 2007 CG version, which stalled out at just $54 million domestically. Meanwhile, "Guardians" -- which set the record for August openings last weekend -- earned another $12.3 million in its second Friday, bringing its domestic haul to a strong $146.7 million. It will likely earn $45 million or so for the weekend, and will soon be closing in on the $200 million mark. In addition to "Ninja Turtles," it's a big weekend for new movies, with "Into the Storm," "The Hundred Foot Journey" and "Step Up All In" all opening wide. »
