Lee Daniels' The Butler (we can thank <a href="http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2374348/Oprah-Winfrey-movie-renamed-Lee-Daniels-The-Butler-MPAA-settles-lawsuit.html" target="_blank">Warner Bros' litigiousness</a> for that mouthful of a title) opened at number one this week, with an estimated $25 million in domestic box office.

Hugh Jackman and his torso made entirely out of veiny penises was too sexy for American moviegoers to resist over the weekend, topping the box office with $55 million (our <a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/2013/07/review-the-wolverine-can-handle-action-scene" target="_blank">Wolverine review here</a>).

Jerry Bruckheimer's <a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/2013/07/bad-review-round-up-for-lone-ranger" target="_blank">bloated turd</a> of a Lone Ranger movie tanked this weekend while Despicable Me 2 won the day, which is crazy, because from everything I've read about children, they just adore adaptations of semi-racist radio serials from the 30s.

We all know that Sir Channing of the House Tatum is a box office titan, the hardest twerkin' man in show business, but after this weekend he may have to call a Pop and Locksmith because White House Down got trounced by The Heat.

By | 13 Comments

Most of the <a href="https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/monsters_university/" target="_blank">reviews</a> seem to suggest Monsters University wasn't one of Pixar's best, but in terms of DOLLA DOLLA BILLZ$™, its $82 million take was good enough to be Pixar's second best of all time, behind Toy Story 3's $110 million opening in 2010.

Box Office: ‘The Purge’ earned 12 times its budget this weekend, Internship bombs

I don't pretend to understand the appeal of horror movies, but at this point it seems clear that horror fans are the most enthusiastic and least discerning of all moviegoers, which coincidentally are the exact qualities I'm looking for in a woman.

By | 17 Comments

This statement has a lot of caveats, but we'll ignore them for now because it's a fun story: this weekend, a film adaptation of the great American novel earned more than $50 million on the same weekend a Tyler Perry-produced romantic comedy earned less than $5 million.

No matter what you think about Prometheus (I mostly <a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/2012/06/review-prometheus" target="_blank">enjoyed it</a>, but I'm definitely not going to defend it), you have to give Fox credit for at least releasing it with an R-rating.
