Lionsgate

Like cockroaches lurking in the darkness waiting for their chance to attack the fruits of someone else's labor, writer/directors Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer ('Date Movie,' 'Epic Movie,' 'Disaster Movie,' et al.) sit quietly, antennae twitching, primed for their attack.

Weekend Box Office Report: Everyone in the World is Seeing ‘The Avengers’ Before You

Avengers International Box Office
Marvel

Normally, the Weekend Box Office Report tends to shy away from covering the international box office. However, we're making an exception this week, mainly because the domestic box office was hopelessly anemic and 'The Avengers' opened everywhere not called the United States and took in an absolutely absurd amount of cash. Between 39 territories, Marvel's hotly anticipated Superhero Team-Up Extravaganza earned an astonishing $178.4 million, shattering opening records across the globe.

Think Like a Man Topples The Hunger Games
Screen Gems

After a month of domination, 'The Hunger Games' has finally been displaced from the number one position on the box office top ten. Considering its theme of the little guy taking on the establishment and emerging victorious despite the odds, it's appropriate that it wasn't a major Hollywood blockbuster that snatched that spot.

Disney decides that Hasbro shouldn't have all the fun adapting games, so they're adapting another ride. And Shia LaBeouf -- always reliable for a big dose of, "Um, what?" -- has decided he's a comic artist. We don't think he knows what that means.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘The Hunger Games’ Clings to the Top Spot

The Hunger Games
Lionsgate

Despite a handful of brand new wide releases, 'The Hunger Games' continued to thoroughly squash its competition without anything remotely resembling mercy, taking the top spot at the box office for the fourth week in a row. With a weekend gross of $21.5 million, the violent, dystopic science fiction flick (but you know, for kids) continued its march to the coveted $400 million mark with no signs of stopping, slowing or giving anything else in the multiplex a break.
