After a dismal outing over the Labor Day holiday weekend, the box office started to show signs of life again, with The Perfect Guy fending off The Visit in a very close race. The Perfect Guy took in $26.7 million over the weekend, with The Visit just behind it in second place with $25.6 million. Since these estimates are so close to each other, it's possible these results could change when the actual box office figures are announced on Monday, but, for now The Perfect Guy has the top spot, according to the estimates at Box Office Mojo.
Both The Perfect Guy ($12 million budget) and The Visit ($5 million) have already turned a profit after just one weekend, but The Perfect Guy's win is more impressive since it opened in far fewer theaters than The Visit. The Perfect Guy opened in 2,221 theaters, earning an robust $12,022 per-screen average. The Visit, on the other hand, »
After pulling off an improbable holiday win at the box office, the War Room faces some stiff competition this weekend, going up against a pair of thrillers, The Visit and The Perfect Guy, and yet another faith-based film, 90 Minutes in Heaven. Now that the summer movie season is over, the box office receipts have already started to dwindle, which was part of the reason War Room was able to take the top spot over Labor Day.

The Visit is expected to take in $17 million at the box office, which should easily give it the top spot over The Perfect Guy, which is expected to earn $13 million in its opening frame. War Room is expected to drop to third place this weekend, »
Fox is assembling a remarkably high-profile cast for its upcoming Ryan Murphy anthology series Scream Queens. In addition to previously-cast series leads Emma Roberts and Jamie Lee Curtis, the comedy-horror series will star Lea Michele (Fox’s Glee), Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine, Zombieland), Keke Palmer (Akeelah and the Bee) and Joe Manganiello (HBO’s True Blood). Meanwhile, Victorious co-star and breakout chanteuse Ariana Grande has landed a recurring role.
Whether all those actors will be singing as well as acting is unclear, but it’s a sure thing that Michele, Palmer and Grande will belt out at least a few numbers. Breslin is a likely candidate for a singing role, too, seeing as she showcased her vocal abilities in the little-seen drama Janie Jones back in 2010 and has also been an occasional member of dream-pop band Stargroves.
The stacked cast is less surprising when you consider the show’s pedigree. »
