Weekend Box Office Report: ‘American Sniper’ Takes Out ‘Blackhat’

A lot of people are going to act like they didn’t see the enormous success of ‘American Sniper’ coming, but the signs were all there. On top of the promising limited release numbers, there was the awards buzz. On top of that, there were the names of director Clint Eastwood and star Bradley Cooper. On top of that, the subject matter of the film is inherently attractive to the same category of moviegoer that makes Christian-themed films into massive hits. ‘American Sniper’ had one doozy of a weekend, but it’s not that surprising.

Do You Believe These Things Are All 30 Years Old In 2015? [Videos]

A gallon of gas was $1.09, a ticket to see a new movie cost $2.50, you could buy a new home in Grand Rapids for just $59,000 and I was working at a radio station in Tijuana, Mexico. 1985 was a very good year.

So, here's a list of things that will turn 30 years old in 2015. Prepare to feel old.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘The Woman in Black’ Can’t Stop ‘The Hobbit’

After the jam-packed month of December, with its huge family-friendly blockbusters and awards season Oscar bait, we have arrived in the month of January. Formerly a dumping ground for mediocre films, the month has taken on a new identity in the past few years as a testing ground for unique genre films (think ‘Cloverfield’) and a solid place to release a horror movie, which seems to do quite well right around New Year’s for whatever reason. This year, we have ‘The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death,’ which had a fairly solid opening. Not solid enough to topple the Christmas Week champions, but no one is complaining too much.
