Box office report: 'Expendables 2' pummels puny newcomers with $13.5 million; Anti-Obama doc '2016' breaks out

You know you’ve reached the summer box office doldrums when not a single new wide release is able to break $7 million over the Friday-to-Sunday period.

Such was the case this weekend, when the top 12 movies grossed a cumulative $83.4 million, which makes this the least attended frame at the box office since December 9-11, 2011, when the top 12 films earned just $67.8 million.

Once again, The Expendables 2 led the chart, dropping 53 percent from its opening frame to $13.5 million — the lowest total for a No. 1 movie since that aforementioned December frame when New Year’s Eve topped the chart with a sad $13.0 million.

After ten days, The Expendables 2, which carries a reported $100 million budget, has grossed $52.3 million and is running well behind the total of the original Expendables, which had grossed $65.4 million at the same point in its run. The Lionsgate action entry may finish with just under $80 million.

Box office update: '2016: Obama's America' tops newcomers on Friday, 'Expendables 2' headed to weekend win

With the exception of one ultra-buzzy political documentary, this weekend at the box office is shaping up to be an unremarkable one.

The Expendables 2 maintained the top spot on Friday, shooting up $3.9 million worth of tickets, which should lead to a $12 million weekend — a 58 percent decline from last week, when it topped the chart. By Sunday, the action film will have about $51 million total. READ FULL STORY

Box office preview: 'Expendables 2' to outpace 'Premium Rush' on low-gear weekend

The dog days of the summer box office are upon us.

Late August is the time of the year when studios traditionally dump projects that have been shelved, moved, and deemed either misguided or unmarketable. You know, the perceived stinkers.

The same is true this year. This weekend brings three new films — bike thriller Premium Rush, comedy Hit and Run, and horror title The Apparition — none of which seem headed to impressive grosses. There’s also an indie film headed into a wide expansion, the political documentary 2016: Obama’s America, which has a pretty good shot at beating all of them.

Here’s how the box office may shake out:

1. The Expendables 2 – $12 million
The meager slate of newcomers should give The Expendables a clear shot at topping the chart for a second weekend in a row following its $28.6 million bow. The action film may fall hard by 55-60 percent, but without any serious competition, it should be able to retain the box office crown with about $12 million.  READ FULL STORY

'Premium Rush' trailer: Joseph Gordon-Levitt's quads have got to be shredded

There isn’t a great deal that’s new in the new trailer for Premium Rush, the more-or-less real-time thriller starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a head-strong New York City bike messenger and Michael Shannon as the dirty cop who desperately wants his latest delivery. The film was initially due to hit theaters last January, but with a new release date (Aug. 24) comes a new trailer, this time cut to emphasize the cat-and-mouse pursuit between Gordon-Levitt and Shannon. (The first trailer leaned more into the world of bike messengers, and the film’s real time approach.) Check it out below:  READ FULL STORY
