For the second week in a row, a David has taken down a Goliath. Last week, a little magician thriller handily derailed a Will Smith juggernaut and this week, the tiny horror film 'The Purge' took 'The Internship' down a peg or a dozen. We're one month in and this summer movie season has already given us plenty of surprises at the box office.
With 'The Expendables 3' already casting every washed-up actor in the history of ever, it should come as no surprise that Sylvester Stallone is apparently courting Mel Gibson. It's a development that Stallone has teased before, but now the Oscar-winning actor and director is rumored to have signed on to the project in a crucial role.
How rare is it for a Will Smith sci-fi blockbuster to not open at number one at the box office? Also, how horrible must it feel for a Will Smith sci-fi blockbuster to not only get beaten by the second week of a long running franchise about fast cars, but by a magician thriller headlined by Jesse Eisenberg?
What looked like one of the big box office showdowns of the summer turned out to not be battle at all. Not only did 'Fast and Furious 6' take the number one spot at the box office, it did it while shattering records, leaving 'The Hangover Part 3' coughing on its exhaust.
When is a $70 million opening not a success? When its predecessor opened to $75 million four years ago. This is the predicament facing 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' which opened at number one at box office while being something of a disappointment.
The season finale of SNL was the fifth time that Ben Affleck has hosted the show, officially making him a member of the "Fiver Timers" club. You may remember the pomp and circumstance that surrounded Justin Timberlake when he joined this elite group, so how was the Oscar-winning director of 'Argo' inducted?
Although there are no plans for a 'Toy Story 4' (yet), Pixar hasn't been shy about utilizing their most iconic characters for short films (see: the 'Toy Story' Toons and the 'Cars' Toons). But now, the latest adventure of Buzz, Woody and the gang will be heading to TV for Pixar's first Halloween special. Titled 'Toy Story of Terror,' was teased by Pixar today, giving us a first look at the project and letting us know where we'd be able to watch it.
No one expected 'The Great Gatsby' to take number one at the box office over 'Iron Man 3' this weekend, but it did the next best thing: it opened huge at number two. There is no shame in this silver medal.
