New Movies: ‘Carrie,’ ‘Escape Plan,’ ‘The Fifth Estate’

This weekend we get a remake of a '70s horror classic, Arnold and Stallone finally punching and shooting things together onscreen ('80s action-movie fans, rejoice!) and a based-on-true-events political thriller about that creepy-looking Wikileaks guy.

‘Carrie’ Review

For a gal named Carrie White, she's sure got a lot of red on her.

Watching Kimberly Peirce's 'Carrie' is an odd experience. If you've seen Brian De Palma's version from 1976, this new version is - and there's really no point in denying this - like watching a cover band. There's a tweaked scene here and there (including a new, creepy-as-heck opening) plus the addition of cell phones and references to 'Dancing With The Stars.' This remake, more than most, really feels like hitting the same marks. It may be a peculiarity specific to 'Carrie,' because, let's face it, not a whole heck of a lot happens in this story. Considering most moviegoers' familiarity, there's plenty of room to stew and think, "Why is this considered such a classic?"

New Movies: ‘Captain Phillips,’ ‘Machete Kills’

It's an action-packed weekend at theaters, with two new thrillers arriving—one based on true events, the other a sequel to a movie that not too many saw, but, well, there's a sequel anyway.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2′ Forecasts Big Opening Weekend

There's nothing like a family-friendly animated movie to help shake off the September doldrums and 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2' performed as expected. Although Sony's big release effortlessly took the number one spot, this weekend had a few other bright spots, namely a handful of independent films doing quite well in more limited release.

‘Captain Phillips’ Review

With piracy drama 'Captain Phillips,' Paul Greengrass ('Bloody Sunday,' 'United 93') has defended his ground as the go-to man for tragic, reality-based pressure-cooker films. The dude really knows how to get your palms sweaty, even when you kinda-sorta know how things are going to end up. Note to self: don't take your cargo ship through the Somali Basin if you don't have to.

Greengrass is also the director of the best two 'Bourne' movies ('Supremacy' and 'Ultimatum') and just as Matt Damon glided through those films as the steely, mixed-martial killing machine, Tom Hanks' center-seat performance here is a master class in keeping it cool.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Prisoners’ Holds the Box Office Captive

September may traditionally be a wasteland of half-baked films unfit to open in a proper month, but the lack of competition can actually be a good thing. Could 'Prisoners,' a film made specifically for an adult audience, have opened as well as it did if it was released in a busier month? Probably not.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Insidious Chapter 2′ Has a Terrifyingly Huge Opening

James Wan has done it again. For the second time this year, a horror film that he's directed has opened to over $40 million, securing his position as the reigning king of mainstream horror cinema. He may be taking a break from the genre to direct 'Fast and Furious 7,' but after the jaw-dropping success of 'The Conjuring' and now 'Insidious Chapter 2,' you just know he'll be back. No one is bringing the audiences in quite like Wan.

Oh, and there were some other movies that made some money, too.

New Movies: ‘Insidious Chapter 2′ and ‘The Family’

This weekend at theaters, we get the sequel to a popular 2010 horror hit by the director of this summer's smash, 'The Conjuring,' plus a return to gangster life for Robert De Niro (though not exactly 'Goodfellas' or 'Godfather' territory). Happy Friday the 13th!

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Riddick’ Wins an Unimpressive Weekend

One of the things 'Riddick' has going for it is that it didn't cost too much. So while its opening weekend may be a little less than impressive, it doesn't have that far to go to make a profit. It's little victories like this that make this, one of the slowest most stagnant movie weekends of the year, more palatable.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘You’re Next’ and ‘The World’s End’ Get Served by ‘The Butler’

Despite a bunch of new releases with all kinds of wide and varied appeal, this weekend's box office top 10 looks suspiciously like last week's. Apparently, none of the newcomers could match Lee Daniels' 'The Butler,' which effortlessly claimed the top spot once more.
