box-office-guardians-of-the-galaxy-highest-grossing-film-of-2014

With two relatively small wide releases opening over the weekend, Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" enjoyed a healthy three-day gross of $16 million and became 2014's highest-grossing movie with $274 million, surpassing the previous champion "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" which achieved a domestic total of $262 million. "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" is also enjoying a very solid run, grossing $11.7 million this weekend which adds up to a total of $162 million.

Now, back to the two new releases. First, the spy thriller "The November Man" starring Pierce Brosnan and Olga Kurylenko grossed $7.6 million in five days and ranked sixth in the top 10, a pretty weak result, but not a complete disaster for the $20 million flick. A somewhat better gross was registered by "As Above/So Below", which took in $8.3 million in 3 days and placed fifth. The horror film only cost $5 million to make, so it has actually turned a profit.

New Wide Releases: "As Above/So Below", "The November Man".

emmy-winners-2014-breaking-bad-modern-family

The 2014 Emmy winners were announced and apart from the usual array of snubs, there were simply not that many surprises. It was a particularly good year for veteran television series. "Breaking Bad" swept the dramatic categories, winning Best Series, Best Actor (Bryan Cranston for a fourth time), Supporting nods for Aaron Paul and Anna Gunn, as well as Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series. This meant that "True Detective" missed out on most major awards, especially for Matthew McConaughey who many expected to add an Emmy to his hot streak of awards this year. Julianna Marguiles took home her second Emmy award for her performance as Alicia Florick in "The Good Wife".

On the comedy front, "Modern Family" won Best Series for a fifth consecutive year, matching the previously held record of "Frasier". In the miniseries categories, "Fargo" won Outstanding Miniseries and Outstanding Directing, while "American Horror Story: Coven" took home the awards for Outstanding Lead Actress (Jessica Lange) and Supporting Actress (Kathy Bates). This year was also great for "Sherlock", which scored three wins: Outstanding Lead Actor (Benedict Cumberbatch), Outstanding Writing (Steven Moffat) and Outstanding Supporting Actor (Martin Freeman).

box-office-if-i-stay-sin-city-dame-to-kill-for

"Guardians of the Galaxy" continues its impressive box-office run by returning to the top this weekend with a solid $17.6 million gross that surpassed the week's new releases. Marvel's newest sci-fi adventure is followed closely by the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" reboot which took in $16.8 million over the weekend and is enjoying a solid run with over $200 million grossed worldwide.

The teen melodrama "If I Stay" starring Chloe Grace Moretz enjoyed a great opening weekend by grossing $16.3 million and managed to rank third behind the Guardians and the Turtles. The film only cost $11 million, so it has already turned a profit.

The biggest disappointment of the weekend is Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's sequel "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" which despite being a follow up to a ground-breaking hit and featuring an all-star cast, failed to make an impression and opened eighth with a poor $6.4 million 3-day total.

On a slightly more positive note, the true story sports drama "When the Game Stands Tall" starring Jim Caviezel managed to take fifth place in its first weekend with $9 million versus a $15 million budget. While the result can't be described as an overwhelming success, it's a solid foundation for the inspirational drama which despite poor critical reviews seems to have found its target audience and is looking to improve its numbers next week.

New Wide Releases: "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For", "When The Game Stands Tall", "If I Stay".

the-hunger-games-mockingjay-part-1-image-character-posters

A new image and six character posters have been released for "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1". The image was released by Entertainment Weekly and it is joined by an interview with franchise director Francis Lawrence who discusses the sequel's scope, how the book's plot was adapted and what part Julianne Moore's character will play in this movie:
"There’s definitely some battles. There’s some of the first glimpses of real war in this movie. And the scale gets quite big. There’s an atonal shift from some of the last movies, but they’re still very emotional, very sweeping, [on a] grand scale with some levity and humor.

Instead of changing the plot and changing characters what we did was have the opportunity to show scenes that could have been happening at different times in the book. For us it’s world expansion instead of changing things. I think it’s exciting for the fan to see certain things. So we’ve been able to open the world up in this and see some new places. We get to see some new districts this time and the scope gets quite large.

[About Moore's character Alma Coin] What’s interesting is although she’s a huge character in Mockingjay the book, there’s actually very little of her in it. There’s more of her in this than in the book and because of that, there’s some development."
The film also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Jena Malone, Sam Claflin, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Jeffrey Wright, Stanley Tucci, Natalie Dormer and Philip Seymour Hoffman also star.

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1" opens in theaters on November 21, 2014.

box-office-expendables-3-ninja-turtles-guardians-galaxy

This weekend "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and "Guardians of the Galaxy" still lead in the top 10 at the box-office after poor performances from the week's three new wide releases. While the Turtles are closing in to the $200 million worlwide mark, Guardians has reached and passed that milestone this week.

The R-rated comedy "Let's Be Cops" opened on Wednesday and has grossed $26 million in 5 days, of which $17 million during the weekend, which ranks the movie third in its opening weekend. The $17 million film performed well enough without being as successful as other R-rated comedies.

The Bomb of the Week award must go to "The Expendables 3" which grossed $16 million in its first 3 days versus a budget of $90 million. The film had many things going against it, including a piracy scandal involving a high-quality version of the film that got leaked online, and the fact that it was cut down to a PG-13 rating. The latter is, in my opinion, the worst thing of all. The franchise is popular for featuring old action stars and rebranding the 1980's action violence for today's audiences. Ironically, the film performed poorly among those young moviegoers they were aiming for, maybe because they don't really care all that much about Sylvester Stallone and co., and with films like Ninja Turtles and Guardians in theaters, they have plenty of much cooler modern entertainment available. "The Expendables 3" scored the worst opening weekend in the franchise proving that there is no future for a fourth installment, should they ever decide to make one. And if they ever do, I strongly encourage them to return to an R rating.

In the young adult department we have "The Giver", the adaptation of Lois Lowry's dystopian novel, which managed to gross $12.7 million in its first weekend, a particularly poor performance, but not all that catastrophic for its $25 million budget. It does, however, rank lower than most YA adaptations, particularly "Divergent" and "The Hunger Games".

New Wide Releases: "The Expendables 3", "Let's Be Cops", "The Giver".

Biggest Drop : "Step Up: All In" (-58%)

Smallest Drop : "The Hundred-Foot Journey" (-35%)
