This year was all about a boy wizard, a Bumblebee, and a sparklevamp. Joining Harry, Sam, and Edward in 2011′s box office toppers were two groups of wedding-oriented train wrecks, several superheroes, and a bunch of upstart Southern domestics. Over in DVDs, a couple instances of horse power and some evil geniuses joined the fray. So which films topped the box-0ffice? Click through to see 2011′s most popular movies. READ FULL STORY

Summer box office hits record $4.4 billion, but...

movie_box_office

The 2011 domestic summer box office earned a record $4.4 billion in the period between May 6 and Labor Day, improving by one percent on the $4.33 billion earned last year. Theoretically, this should be seen as a major victory for Hollywood — of course, they’re celebrating it as such — but savvy box office junkies know better than to simply believe the hype. The box office is not quite as healthy as that figure might suggest.  READ FULL STORY

Box office report: 'Captain America' stands proud with $65.8 million; 'Harry Potter' plummets, still huge

This weekend, Captain America: The First Avenger was on a quest to avenge the disappointing box office results of recent superhero movies like X-Men: First Class and Green Lantern, and according to weekend estimates, it looks like Cappy has succeeded! The patriotic Paramount/Marvel tentpole earned a strong $65.8 million this weekend, bettering the opening of Thor, which hammered out $65.7 million during its debut in May. (Let’s wait for final numbers on Monday before we declare this the best superhero opening of the summer.) Captain America wasn’t a weakling in the per theater average department, either, as it found a terrific $17,719 at each of its 3,715 locations. Only 40 percent of the opening figure came from 3D screens, though—yet another low number for the format.

Audiences, which were 64 percent male, liked the film quite a bit, issuing Captain a nice “A-” Cinemascore grade (comparatively, Thor and X-Men: First Class both earned a “B+”, while Green Lantern earned a “B”), and the positive reception should help the $140 million action film stick around at the box office.

Box office update: 'Captain America' soars into first place with $25.7 million on Friday

Captain America: The First Avenger is starting off stronger than anyone (self-included) expected. According to estimates, the patriotic Marvel superhero film grossed a tremendous $25.7 million on Friday, with $4 million of that coming from midnight screenings. Captain America‘s impressive Friday gross puts it well ahead of the first-day totals for X-Men: First Class ($21.4 million) and Green Lantern ($21.4 million), and just a touch above Thor‘s first Friday ($25.5 million) as well. Thus, Cappy should earn a figure in the same range as Thor‘s opening, grossing around $66 million this weekend.

In second place, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows—Part 2 plummeted 84% from last weekend’s record-breaking Friday to $14.6 million. Given the up-front excitement and huge numbers for Harry Potter last weekend, this drop doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Still, the magical fantasy should stabilize some over the rest of the weekend and finish with about $49 million by Sunday.

Friends With Benefits nabbed the third place spot with a solid $6.8 million. The Mila Kunis/Justin Timberlake comedy earned about 6 percent less than the $7.2 million that No Strings Attached made on its first Friday in January. Sunday grosses are typically stronger in the summer since kids are out of school and people are on vacation, so I wouldn’t be totally surprised if Benefits edged out Strings by the end of the frame, but right now, Friends With Benefits looks to be headed to a $19 million weekend.

Horrible Bosses continued to exhibit some strong legs at the box office, declining just 33 percent from last Friday to $3.7 million. The revenge comedy should pick up another $12 million this weekend, good for fourth place. In fifth will be Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which earned $3.5 million on Friday and will likely find just over $11 million.

Box office report: 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' wins weekend with $47 million; 'Horrible Bosses' starts strong, 'Zookeeper' decent

Comedy and robots — that’s what sold this weekend at the American box office. A major action sequel topped the chart, with four comedies following close behind. Transformers: Dark of the Moon easily held on to first place, firing up an optimal $47 million. That number represents a 52 percent decline from last weekend, and gives Dark of the Moon a 12-day total of $261 million. The original Transformers had earned $212.3 million at the same point, while Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen had pulled in a stronger $293.4 million.

Word-of-mouth does appear to be helping Transformers: Dark of the Moon, though. READ FULL STORY

Box office update: 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' retains top spot with $14.9 million on Friday

Transformers: Dark of the Moon held on to its prime position at the box office on Friday, blasting up another $14.9 million. That number represents a 55 percent drop from Moon‘s last Friday, which is actually in line with expectations, as effects-driven sequels tend to be very frontloaded at the box office. Transformers should earn a strong $46 million this weekend and lead all other releases by a comfortable margin. That’s not to say that the newcomers fizzled, though — they most certainly did not!  READ FULL STORY

Jennifer Aniston on her 'Horrible Bosses' character: 'I never get that kind of fun stuff'

There's certainly much to enjoy in 
Horrible Bosses, directed by Seth Gordon (read Lisa Schwarzbaum's review here), the funniest workplace revenge comedy to come along since 9 to 5. But perhaps the most unexpected pleasure is seeing Jennifer Aniston play a predatory, filthy-mouthed dentist who delights in sexually harassing her assistant (played by Charlie Day). "I had such a great time doing it. It was ridiculous fun," Aniston tells EW. "I never get that kind of fun stuff. It was great! You do tend to get locked into parts that you play, you know what I mean?  People forget that there are other parts in there. That's what I love about Seth Gordon -- someone with imagination. You just have to have the balls to let people try [other kinds of roles]

Box office preview: 'Horrible Bosses' and 'Zookeeper' take on 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon'

Since its debut last Wednesday, Transformers: Dark of the Moon has been utterly dominant at the box office, amassing a gigantic $204.4 million in its first eight days of release. This weekend, Horrible Bosses and Zookeeper will do their best to compete with Transformers, but the Michael Bay film is all but guaranteed another weekend atop the chart. That’s not to say that the newcomers won’t do well for themselves — they very well might — but in this battle between people, animals, and machines, I’ve got my money on the robots. Take a look at my box office predictions below.  READ FULL STORY

'Horrible Bosses' red band trailer: We love it when Charlie Day shouts

The red band trailer for next month’s Horrible Bosses is full of NSFW language and scenes stolen by Charlie Day. Watch it below. Note: Day has now managed to make us laugh twice at a line involving the word “rape”: The first time was when his It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia character had trouble pronouncing his fake occupation to a date (he said he was a “full on rapist” instead of a philanthropist). The second time is in this trailer, when he yells that rape is what his boss Jennifer Aniston did to him. (It’s all about the delivery. His trademark shout is gold.)  READ FULL STORY
