Weekend Box Office: 'Prisoners' Takes An Easy First

September 23rd, 2013 8:36am EDT
Prisoners
The well reviewed Hugh Jackman pic beat expectations and was crowned the champion (by a long shot). It should play well over the coming weeks with increasing awards buzz. The film received a B+ cinemascore, so word of mouth will be good, but not The Butler sized.

1) Prisoners- 21.4M Weekend, 21.4M Total

2) Insidious: Chapter 2- 14.2M Weekend, 50.5M Total

The horror sequel dipped 64% in week two, pretty typical for this genre. A third installment has already been ordered, as the sequel will definitely outgross the original.

3) The Family- 7.0M Weekend, 25.6M Total

Michelle Pfeiffer
Michelle Pfeiffer's new role alongside Robert De Niro in mob comedy The Family has been over 30 years in the making - she originally auditioned to work with him in 1980 classic Raging Bull.

The actress made the confession during a recent joint interview with the legendary star for Fox News, and the news took De Niro by surprise.

She said, "That was when I very first met you. Did I ever tell you that? It was my very first interview ever... never thinking I would get the part, which of course I didn't. I had always dreamed of working with him, and so I was just very excited (to land a role ...

Review: 'The Family' Not One You'd Like To Have Over For Dinner

September 13th, 2013 3:19pm EDT
The Family
Meet the Manzoni's. A family no different than your average family - mother, father, two children – except this family is in the United States Federal Witness Protection Program and they like to beat people up, or in the case of Daddy Manzoni, kill people.

Giovanni Manzoni (Robert De Niro) was a big time mob boss, who like many big time mob bosses, wound up snitching on his former cohorts. Not a good thing at all.

When we first meet Giovanni and his family his wife Maggie (Michelle Pfeiffer), daughter Belle (Dianna Agron) and son, Warren (John D'Leo) they have just been relocated to a sma...

Box Office Predictions: 'Insidious Chapter 2' Will Take The Weekend

September 13th, 2013 10:45am EDT
Insidious Chapter 2
1) Insidious: Chapter 2- 20.0M Weekend, 20.0M Total

The original opened to 13M, and eventually grossed 54M domestically. The sequel benefits from a painfully dead box office, solid word of mouth, and The Conjuring, which scared up good audiences in July. People may watch Insidious 2 without having seen the original. 20M for the weekend is likely.

2) The Family- 12M Weekend, 12M Total

Robert DeNiro and Michelle Pfieffer star in a mob dramedy that is tracking soft, but is opening into an empty marketplace. The marketing push for this has been solid, with Luc Besson and Martin Scorsese on a...
