Box Office Late Nights: ‘Maze Runner’ Off To Good Start With $1.1M, ‘Tombstones’ Takes In $480K

deadline.com – Fox's The Maze Runner grabbed $1.1M in late night showing from 2,200 locations starting at 10PM. The best comparison is probably the sci-fi actioner, Ender's Game which opened with $1.4 million in November 2013 and went onto have an opening weekend gross of $27M. So, perhaps Fox is more on the money with a lower estimate for this weekend.

Tom Hardy Says He'll Never Do Another Romantic Comedy Again Thanks To 'This Means War'

fb.indiewire.com – Tom Hardy's greatest attribute is his willingness to try anything and knock it out of the park. It's hard to believe the same actor who stormed the screen in Nicolas Winding Refn's "Bronson" spent 90 minutes on the phone in Steven Knight's "Locke." This weekend, the actor plays a weary Brooklynite in "The Drop," and on the horizon he's got roles ranging from badass post-apocalyptic warrior in next summer's "Mad Max: 1 week 5 days ago via donnieyen

Andrew Garfield Says Studio Cuts Damaged 'Amazing Spider-Man 2,' Alex Kurtzman Talks Venom

fb.indiewire.com – “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” – the second entry into the Andrew Garfield reboot of the early 2000s franchise – didn’t swing to great heights this summer. Reviews were generally lukewarm at best, and box office returns were far lower than what Sony brass had hoped for. The film opened with $91.6M and managed to cobble together close to $203M domestic (of a $708M global total), which might not seem so bad, until you put it in perspective. 1 week 5 days ago via brucelee

​Box Office: What's Behind the Celestial Failure of 'The Identical'?

news.moviefone.com – "The Identical" was the only new wide release movie opening this weekend, so, in the absence of competition, why didn't it do better?
