Weekend Box Office Report: Liam Neeson and ‘Non-Stop’ Battle Jesus and ‘Son of God’

This weekend saw a brutal showdown between Liam Neeson, the current god of action cinema, and Jesus Christ, the current god of millions of human beings.

Since the box office is a "two may enter, but only one may leave" type showdown, the victory ultimately went to Neeson and 'Non-Stop,' which edged out the son of God and his movie, uh, 'Son of God' to win the weekend.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Pompeii’ Fizzles While ‘Lego Movie’ Still Awesome

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘RoboCop’ Taken Down by ‘The Lego Movie’ and ‘About Last Night’

When 'RoboCop' got pushed from an August 2013 release date to February, everyone assumed it would open stronger when far away from the busy summer months.

If this was the better of the two options, then imagine how poorly it would have opened in summer. The remake of the 1987 classic filmed in Detroit is definitely not a disaster, but it most certainly under-performed.

Jose Padilha's update on the tale of a cyborg cop out for revenge has made $26 million since its Wednesday release, with $21 million coming over the weekend. That's not awful, but it's not exactly strong for a movie with a foundation dating to 1987.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Ride Along’ Laps ‘That Awkward Moment’ and ‘Labor Day’

Unless you had a personal stake in a film being released this weekend, movies were far from the most important thing happening to you these past couple of days. You can blame the weekend's mostly anemic box office on one thing: the Super Bowl. Everyone spent their money buying snacks and preparing their parties and not going to see 'That Awkward Moment' and 'Labor Day,' both of which opened soft.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Lone Survivor’ Screens as Lone Victor

New releases have a habit of floundering in January, which tends to be one of Hollywood's biggest dumping grounds.

Even this year's big January horror release, which is commonly a sure thing, floundered.

What does tend to do well are the prestige pictures which opened late in the previous year (often in limited release) and expand in the new year, riding awards momentum to solid box-office receipts.

Peter Berg's "Lone Survivor" emerged from limited release last week to rise at the box office.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones’ Gets ‘Frozen’ Out of No. 1

Over the past few years, "Paranormal Activity" series has established itself as one of the most inexpensive and reliable horror franchises around.

Produced for pennies, they've consistently opened strong at the box office, ensuring a fast and efficient turnaround. The latest film, "Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones," accomplished that goal, and did so without grabbing the No. 1 spot.

While people may love found footage demons,it turns out that they love animated singing princesses more.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘The Wolf of Wall Street,’ ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ and More Battle It Out

Although you'd think people would spend the holidays in their homes catching up with their families and what-not, they actually tend to go to the movies after opening gifts and having awkward conversations. And Christmas Day moviegoers had a bunch of options this week, with recent releases (and not-so-recent releases) still going strong and a whole bunch of new releases arriving to coincide with the holiday.

‘Fleming’: James Bond’s Creator Gets a Little Spy Action Himself

It's no secret that James Bond creator Ian Fleming based many aspects of his legendary fictional spy on parts of himself.

However, the trailer for the upcoming four-part BBC miniseries "Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond" wants to believe that he actually was 007.

The footage from the series has enough action and seduction to make it look like an actual James Bond movie.
