After just eight days in release, WB and New Line's It became the highest grossing September release of all-time, two days later it added another $40 million to that total for an impressive $60 million second weekend and nearly $220 million in just ten days. The horror film's performance vastly overshadowed the weekend's two new wide releases that saw Lionsgate and CBS Films's American Assassin deliver respectable results in second place while Paramount's release of Darren Aronofsky's mother! suffered greatly, finishing in third and receiving a disastrous "F" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. With an estimated $60 million this weekend, WB and New Line's It brought its domestic cume to $218.7 million after just ten days in release. As already mentioned, that makes it the largest September release ever, topping 1986's Crocodile Dundee ($174.8m). That number, of course, is not adjusted for inflation. Adjusted for inflation, however, It still finishes within the top »

Darren Aronofsky's mother! stalled in its domestic box-office debut, grossing an estimated $7.5 million from 2,368 theaters after receiving a rare F CinemaScore and facing competition from the blockbuster It.
mother!, an elevated psychological horror-thriller, supplanted The House at the End of the Street ($12.3 million) to mark the lowest nationwide launch of Jennifer Lawrence's career. The Paramount title, which costed $30 million to produce, came in No. 3 over the weekend behind It and new offering American Assassin. (In a sign that summer is over, all three titles are rated R.)

Moviegoers are having very negative reactions to Jennifer Lawrence's latest movie, Mother!, according to CinemaScore, which currently has the movie at an F rating. The Darren Aronofsky directed movie has been getting trashed by audiences, but praised by critics, leading to a huge divide between audience and critic with the polarized reviews. Could it be that moviegoers are beginning a backlash against Jennifer Lawrence?
Jennifer Lawrence is an acclaimed, Academy Award winning actress who was once the highest paid actress in the world two years ago. The 27-year old actress can pretty much do whatever she wants, but it's beginning to look like her fans do not want to see her in horror movies. 2012's House at the End of the Street was panned by critics and is seen as a commercial failure when compared to Lawrence's other work, which still earned a lot of money and was in »
Released soon after Jennifer Lawrence broke out big in The Hunger Games, House at the End of the Street is the only movie that the actress has done that could be described as a horror movie. But that's about to change. Teased as a psychological thriller, mother! looks to be a full-blown horror movie. Darren Aronofsky, who wrote and directed, previously crafted the exceptional psychological drama Black Swan, which earned Natalie Portman an Academy Award for her sterling performance. This time around, he pairs Lawrence with Javier Bardem as a couple living in a remote location. When uninvited guests Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer arrive, things soon turn incredibly creepy. Watch the trailer below. Directed by: Darren Aronofsky. Written by: Darren...

Another horror movie may have just entered the awards season discussion. Director Darren Aronofsky, who is easily one of the most respected filmmakers working in the industry today, has assembled an all star cast for a brand new horror/thriller that looks to be a couple of cuts above what one usually expects from genre filmmaking. Now, the first full trailer for Mother! has arrived online, giving us a better sense of what to expect from this mysterious potential Oscar contender.
Paramount Pictures released the full trailer for Mother online just ahead of its September 15 release date after first releasing a very brief teaser last week. This trailer still doesn't give us much of what to expect in terms of story as it looks like Darren Aronofsky wants the mystery to unfold for the viewer. We do get that there is a couple living in a seemingly remote area in »
