G.I. Joe: Retaliation News
rottentomatoes.com – There isn't much to report this week, as far as home releases are concerned. There is the big, explodey blockbuster franchise sequel, of course, and an indie thriller, plus a few very small films and a handful of reissues, but not a whole lot to get excited about (unless you're a Guillermo del Toro fan). 19 weeks 16 hours ago via theothersenhman
cinemablend.com – Obviously, we're gaga over The Rock. The pro wrestler turned legit actor is a big ball of charisma and self-proclaimed "franchise Viagra" who has made every movie he's touched exponentially better. But how do you nail down exactly how popular Johnson is among moviegoers? Look at his insanely impressive box office record for 2013 thus far. 26 weeks 43 min ago via donnieyen

The weekend was very kind to last week’s one and only new release, Oblivion. Otherwise, the charts have remained more or less static since last weekend. Oblivion did quite well in the box office, making over $38.1 million; while this is at the bottom end of its predicted range for its opening weekend gross, it’s still a respectable sum, and the film can probably expect similarly impressive numbers in later weeks.

Both of last week’s new releases did very well in the box office this weekend—even despite the arguably vast disparity in quality between the two releases. Making the top of the charts is 42, which outdid its modest expectations (even for a heartwarming based-on-a-true-story yarn), earning revenues in the ballpark (ha) of $27.2 million on its opening weekend.

Not only did this last week introduce abnormally well-received new releases, but these releases continued the streak with admirable box office numbers, as well.
