Box Office Report, July 21

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

This week the box office is once again ruled by apes as The Purge: Anarchy, Planes: Fire & Rescue, and Sex Tape all fail to knock Caesar from his throne.  Next week will prove an interesting challenge with a major action film, a thriller, and a Rob Reiner comedy all opening.  The new films are more likely to attract a different audience than the current batch of films in theatres.  Next weekend should be fairly diverse, in film genre and demographics.  In other news Frozen has finally stopped posting numbers from overseas box offices, settling in at a healthy $1,267.8 Billion.

And So It Goes

There are a million reasons not to like realtor Oren Little, and that’s just the way he likes it. Willfully obnoxious to anyone who might cross his path, he wants nothing more than to sell one last house and retire in peace and quiet — until his estranged son suddenly drops off a granddaughter he never knew existed and turns his life upside-down. Clueless about how to care for a sweet, abandoned nine-year-old, he pawns her off on his determined and lovable neighbor Leah and tries to resume his life uninterrupted. But little by little, Oren stubbornly learns to open his heart – to his family, to Leah, and to life itself,

Hercules (2014)

Everyone knows the legend of Hercules and his twelve labors. Our story begins after the labors, and after the legend… Haunted by a sin from his past, Hercules has become a mercenary. Along with five faithful companions, he travels ancient Greece selling his services for gold and using his legendary reputation to intimidate enemies. But when the benevolent ruler of Thrace and his daughter seek Hercules’ help to defeat a savage and terrifying warlord, Hercules finds that in order for good to triumph and justice to prevail… he must again become the hero he once was… he must embrace his own myth… he must be Hercules.
