New movies hit theaters every weekend, so who’s to say which films are bombs and which are blockbusters? Obviously, promotion, casting, budget and content (if you don’t have a story or a big name, what’s putting butts in the seats?), play factors, but are...

The cinema struggled through five long years of oppression, but the box office has been liberated. That’s right, for the first year since 2008, the Twilight Saga isn’t one of the highest grossing films (of course, they didn’t release any this year). Apparently, American cinematic taste...
