Weekend Box Office Report: Denzel Washington’s ‘The Equalizer’ Triumphs

When you put Denzel Washington in an action movie, you've written your meal ticket for the foreseeable future. Few actors are as consistent as Washington with their opening weekends, even when the project looks like something everyone has seen countless times before.

The unfortunate flip side of that coin is that a strange and risky project like 'The Boxtrolls' opens to only half the gross of 'The Equalizer.'

‘Star Wars’ Spinoff to Follow Obi-Wan Kenobi?

So far, we have heard rumors that two of the three planned 'Star Wars' spinoffs were to follow Boba Fett and Han Solo. Then there was the mysterious third spinoff, which we haven't much concrete information on. Until now. A recent report suggests that despite earlier reports that the spinoffs wouldn't follow any Jedi or Sith characters, Lucasfilm is currently working with artists and a writer to develop an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘No Good Deed’ Dethrones ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

After a month at the top, 'Guardians of the Galaxy' has finally fallen from the number one spot on the box office charts. All it took was a modestly budgeted thriller starring Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson.

‘Christian Mingle’ Trailer: This Is a Real Movie [Video]

Christian movies are kind of a big deal right now, so it sort of makes sense, we guess (?), for dating website ChristianMingle.com to get in on the action with their very own film -- no, actually it makes absolutely no sense at all, but here is the trailer for 'Christian Mingle,' a film directed by Corbin Bernsen, of all people, and starring former Mean Girl Lacey Chabert opposite some guy suffering from Average White Guy face.

There actually was a new film released this week. It's called 'The Identical' and it's a Christian-themed fable about what would have happened if Elvis Presley's stillborn twin brother had survived. Well, for reasons that should be obvious after reading that sentence, 'Guardians of the Galaxy' held onto the number one spot this weekend while 'The Identical' opened outside of the top 10, never to be heard from again.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Rules

A few weeks ago, this column was skeptical that Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' could reach $300 million. Now, it seems impossible that it won't. Thanks to ecstatic word of mouth, killer marketing and only one genuinely successful box office challenger (that would be 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'), Marvel's oddball space opera has managed to spend three of the past four weekends at the number one spot at the box office, giving it enough momentum to officially become the highest grossing film of 2014.
