Box office report: 'Ride Along' dominates with $47.8 million, breaks January recordupdated Mon Jan 20 2014 08:24:41

It's good to be Kevin Hart and Ice Cube this weekend. The increasingly ubiquitous Hart, who recently told EW that Ride Along is "my baby," scored big with a $41.2 million opening weekend for the buddy-cop comedy. That should jump to an estimated $47.8 million when one factors in the Monday MLK Jr. holiday. Not only does the impressive haul surpass expectations for Universal's leanly budgeted $25 million comedy, but it also breaks the record for a January opening. (If you're still not sold on the Hart/Cube pairing, whose chemistry lifted the film to an "A" approval rating with CinemaScore audiences, let this stupendous spot on Conan give you a taste of their chemistry.)

Box office report: 'Frozen' freezes out the latest 'Paranormal Activity' updated Mon Jan 06 2014 10:46:55

As much of the Northeast was trapped in a winter wonderland not unlike its snow-cursed setting, Disney's Frozen managed to reclaim the No. 1 spot at the box office for the first time in three weekends. The animated film took in $20.7 million, which is a nearly 28 percent drop from last week's numbers but still impressive considering it's no longer a holiday and the film is already in its sixth weekend of wide release. It's now inevitable that the Disney hit will cross the $300 million mark, as it's currently sitting pretty at $297.8 million. That's $97 million more than 2010?s Tangled --Disney's previous CG-animated adaptation of a fairy tale with a past participle for a title?made in its entire domestic run. Meanwhile, Frozen's worldwide total has reached $639.9 million.

Box office report: 'The Hobbit' beats 'Frozen' with $29.9 millionupdated Mon Dec 30 2013 17:32:49

In a remarkably tight race, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug held onto its gold at the box office this weekend, earning $29.9 million over the three-day frame and taking the top spot. The fantasy epic's domestic total is now $190.3 million after three weeks, a robust number that still trails last year's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which had already earned $221.6 million at the 17-day mark. Peter Jackson's earlier Tolkien epic, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, had made a princely $290.4 million by its third weekend in 2003, headed toward a final gross of $377.8 in the states and $1.119 billion worldwide. Smaug looks likely to end up below Unexpected Journey's total haul of $303 million, whereas each of the Lord of the Rings films managed to outgross its predecessor. The Hobbit: There and Back Again, the trilogy's final film, is slated for release on Dec. 17, 2014.

'G.B.F.' director blames 'R' rating on MPAA's gay double-standardupdated Fri Dec 20 2013 13:20:29

It's an old accusation, but one that shows no signs of disappearing anytime soon: the Motion Picture Association of America is disproportionately stricter about profanity and sex than it is about violence. Relatively gruesome studio films like The Hunger Games or The Dark Knight Rises frequently win PG-13 ratings; relatively gentle films like Philomena, by contrast, are slammed with a much more restrictive R rating ? initially, at least ? simply for dropping one too many F-bombs.
