‘American Hustle,’ ‘Gravity’: AFI Awards 2013 - big-studio movies rule once again (photo: Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper in ‘American Hustle’) The American Film Institute has released AFI Awards list featuring the Top Ten Movies of 2013. As usual, the AFI Awards mostly focus on mainstream, popular fare from the big studios; in fact, they’re a sort of more upscale, Oscar-friendlier People’s Choice Awards, i.e., no Twilight, no The Fast and The Furious, no Adam Sandler, scattered super-hero movies. (You’ll see why they’re so big-studio-friendly once you scroll down a bit to check out the list of this year’s AFI Awards’ jury members.) Six of the AFI’s Top Ten 2013 movies come courtesy of the Hollywood majors: American Hustle, Captain Phillips, Gravity, Her, Saving Mr. Banks, and The Wolf of Wall Street. Additionally, 12 Years a Slave was released by Fox Searchlight Pictures, a subsidiary of »

“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is still smoldering at the box office. Everyone has been giving the film praise and if, for some reason, you’re still on the fence, perhaps the newly-cut “Atlas” trailer for the film will change your mind. The trailer gets its name from Coldplay’s song for the film (an amazing song, by the way). Take a look at the trailer below the post and see what you think! “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” stars Jennifer Lawrence as Katinss Everdeen and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, the two tributes that go on to change Panem forever. “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned [ Read More ]

Athar and Baca were tied atop the points leaderboard for several weeks, but neither managed to score a point in that same timeframe while rusty slowly gained ground and this week, by predicting The Hunger Games: Catching Fire exactly correct, he added 5 points to his total and has now taken a two-point lead. Quite fortunate for him I'd say that Catching Fire came in at $26.1 million, almost one million less than Sunday's estimate. In first, however, remained Frozen, which came in exactly as estimated with $31.6 million, bringing its domestic total to $134.2 million in only 17 days. Out of the Furnace dipped only $100,000 from estimates to come in with $5.2 million while our fourth title on the board this weekend, Homefront, finished with $3.4 million. I also just noticed I accidentally left The Book Thief out of the top ten in yesterday's report. The Fox film added 82 theaters and is now playing in 1,316 where it scored $2.6 million. »

I was lucky enough to go into The Hunger Games with no real expectations, something which was arguably helped by the fact that I'd never read the Suzanne Collins penned novel it was based on. That movie turned out to be really good, and 18 or so months later and the sequel is already here, and I still haven't read the books. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is a 5* movie right up until the point Katniss Everdeen and the rest of the tributes enter the arena. Why? Well, that unfortunately puts us squarely in the realm of generic action blockbuster territory, while a rushed and slightly muddled ending doesn't help matters either. The character driven parts of the movie are ultimately far more interesting than the attempts to differentiate this games from the last, with the addition of poison gas, tidal waves and, er, monkeys). The thought-provoking themes and parallels »
With so many blockbusters that hit theaters this year, it's hard to choose my Top 3 movies of 2013. After much consideration, I've taken my pick, but ultimately, every movie is geared towards its own audience and the different genres must be taken into thought. So, without further ado, here are my Top 3 Movies of the Year based on what I found was compelling, enjoyable, and supplied food for thought.
1. Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Director Francis Lawrence is brilliant. I applaud the entire cast and crew of Catching Fire for bringing the book alive on screen in ways that's perhaps even better than the book. The acting is exceptional and outstanding. Jennifer Lawrence immerses herself completely in the character of Katniss. The plot moves along in such an artistic, impeccable way that it's easy to forget that Hunger Games is a big franchise blockbuster. Catching Fire is a precious rarity in that it beats its predecessor. »

Can Disney's winter-wonderland offering fend off the impending arrival of The Desolation of Smaug?

Holiday season hit-making
'Tis the season when studio chiefs with the right movies rub their hands/smart phones in glee, manage a half-smile and issue impersonal notes of thanks to the minions for all their hard work. Holiday season means hits and Frozen has the makings of one. Not every Disney animation is a dead cert these days – to wit, Planes – but the latest release from the production line appears to have what it takes to become a blockbuster. It climbed to top spot in North America in its third weekend, reaching an estimated $134.2m (£81.9m). Really, this figure should be viewed as a two-weekend result because the opening session was limited to a single theatre.

In Anchorman, Paul Rudd was part of the Channel 4 news team that rallied around Ron Burgundy at his moment of crisis. On Saturday, the gang returned the favor as Rudd hosted Saturday Night Live for the third time. He didn’t necessarily need it, but you don’t think Anchorman 2 was going to let this promotional opportunity pass by, did you? Will Ferrell, David Koechner, and Steve Carell had Rudd’s back for a little “Afternoon Delight” sing-off against One Direction. Combined with a cold-open that featured Kristen Wiig and Fred Armisen, it quickly appeared as if Rudd »

Despite a drop in revenue, Disney’s latest, Frozen, managed to move up in the standings, taking the first-place spot after a small limited release and a second-place finish in its wide release debut, earning an estimated $31.6 million. Though it has yet to make a domestic profit, it did manage to knock The Hunger Games: Catching Fire from its seemingly unbeatable perch, earning only an estimated $27 million. However, even with a large third week drop, Catching Fire seems intent on surpassing Despicable Me 2 for the second highest earning domestic film of the year; if it can hold onto the top ten for a few more weeks, it just may well do so.
Bad news for Out of the Furnace; despite the star power of Christian Bale, the action thriller failed to ignite critical or audience interest, the $22 million film only making an estimated $5.3 million in its first week of release. »

It was a good weekend at the box office for movies about women. The top two movies, "Frozen" (a Disney animated feature about not one but two princesses) and "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" (about a teenage girl gladiator) are in their second and third weeks of release, respectively, yet they sold nearly $60 million in tickets between them, for a total of nearly $400 million to date, just in North America.
There were also two female-centered art-house films, "The Book Thief" and "Philomena," both of them top 10 movies, earning about $5 million between them. Plus, Sandra Bullock's "Gravity" is still orbiting just outside the top 10, having earned $251.5 million domestically over two months. Add to that the current No. 8 film, "The Best Man Holiday" (which has proved a solid draw for women ticket-buyers because of its gender-balanced cast, its themes of family and romance, and its quartet of handsome male leads), and »

Disney animation heats up. Disney’s latest animated adventure Frozen made the unusual move of hopping up to first place at the box office in its second week of release, having debuted at second. Last week, the animation - a loose adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson fable The Snow Queen - opened with the best Thanksgiving weekend take ever, but could not topple The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire from its perch. »
Audiences were more into animated family-friendly fare this weekend than they were the second installment in The Hunger Games franchise as Disney's Frozen toppled Catching Fire from the top spot on the weekend box office chart. Horrible winter weather didn't affect the overall performance of films in theaters, with the box office take actually higher than the same weekend last year (historically a down weekend at the box office). However, the goodwill felt by moviegoers toward Frozen and Catching Fire didn't extend to Out of the Furnace starring Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, and Willem Dafoe. The dramatic thriller from director Scott Cooper posted a disappointing $5 million at the domestic box office and isn't likely to pick up business over the coming weeks. But while Out of the Furnace isn't a winner for Bale, he does still have David O. Russell's American Hustle coming to theaters this month. »
Washington, December 9: Disney's animated film 'Frozen' has topped the weekend box office by raking in 31.6 million dollars in its second week.

This week Nick, Nathaniel, Katey, and Joe discuss the blockbuster Philomena and that little arthouse indie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Spoilers you might want to avoid for Philomena are here (32:00-32:20 / 35:00-35:30).
Some questions that need your answers in the comments: Is Jennifer Lawrence better as Katniss than in her Oscar roles? Would The Hunger Games be better as a TV series? What is going on in the Hemsworth family gene pool? Is Philomena at 98 minutes too padded or too short or, paradoxically, both? And how many nominations can it hope for having conquered the auntie demographic?

A significant shake-up in the top spot highlighted an otherwise slow box office weekend.
In at number 1 is Disney Animation’s Frozen with $31 million. Although the film opened in the number 2 spot last weekend, Frozen was able to leapfrog the reigning box office king thanks to a record-breaking post-Thanksgiving performance. Now at $134 million, Frozen is well on its way to becoming Disney Animation’s highest grossing film ever.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire fell to the number 2 spot (after two straight weeks of box office dominance) with $27 million. Although the film’s 64% drop-off is rather steep, the folks at Lionsgate still have plenty to be happy about. Catching Fire has amassed $336 million after only three ...

Amir here, bringing you this weekend’s box office report, which looks curiously like last weekend’s box office report. Of course no one is surprised that Out of the Furnace didn’t have the power to blast off Catching Fire and Frozen. The reviews aren’t over the moon; its stars aren’t quite stars, but famous actors; and this time of year, if you’re not a franchise entry or an animated film, you better be an Oscar player with huge buzz to sell tickets. Furnace is none of those things, and this weekend isn’t particularly notable for big numbers anyway. The last time any film opened in the first week of December to what can be considered reasonably successful sales is The Golden Compass all the way back in 2007. The only other noteworthy release is Inside Llewyn Davis, which opened on 4 screens to a strong per screen average. »
