We've been playing it cool with the near-constant rumors regarding Star Wars: Episode VII, but this one seems legit: It looks like the next villain to torment the Rebels and their friends will be played by none other than Girls cast member Adam Driver.

Like it or not, the old-fashioned two-dimensional villain is a thing of the past -- and the studio that helped define that archetype for several generations of filmgoers is now actively helping to shatter it with movies like Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie as the witch who infamously ruined Sleeping Beauty's christening with a curse.

This weekend was a blowout for one of our new releases, which earned well beyond its projected range, and worked its way to the top of the charts as a result. Lone Survivor, the cathartic war film based on a true story, pulled in $38.5 million over the weekend—a good $20 million more than its predicted gross.

This weekend was a mixed bag for the solitary new release, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones—while it did manage the laudable feat of pulling in higher earnings than The Desolation of Smaug, both films were topped by a holdout of nearly two months—Disney’s Frozen.

It comes as no surprise that, just as it did last year, the latest Hobbit will remain at the top of the charts for the last weekend of the year. Additionally, however, this weekend was a smashing success for holdover film Frozen, which managed to regain its spot directly beneath The Desolation of Smaug, and beat out all of the weekend’s new releases.
New in Theaters: 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,' 'Walking with Dinosaurs,' 'American Hustle,' 'Saving Mr. Banks'

We’ve quite the large batch of new releases heading our way this weekend; while a group of four new releases can be rare, rarer still is that three out of the four were met with decent critical reception, with the lowest rating received (of the well-received films) being 75%.

These past couple weekends have been a battle of ice and fire as Disney’s Frozen and Catching Fire duke it out in the box office. Both films are continuing to pull in impressive numbers, but this weekend Frozen was victorious, having earned the most this weekend. Our new release, unfortunately, did not beat out either film.

Just when you thought you could roll up your whip, hang up your leather jacket, and put away your fedora, here comes some of the more intriguing late-Friday news we've seen in some time: Apparently, Disney has picked up the rights to any and all Indiana Jones sequels.

Given Catching Fire’s explosive debut last weekend, no one expected any of the new releases, even the highly-rated Frozen, to make it to the top of the the charts. Despite a horde of new releases, the latest Hunger Games film is still pulling in numbers that most films are lucky to get on their opening weekend.

After a few weeks of standalone releases (or big-name releases accompanied by a smaller, somewhat negligible release), this Thanksgiving weekend features an explosion of new releases that, in conjunction with the blockbusters of the last month, should cater to just about every audience heading to the theaters over the weekend.
