July 2014 Box Office Bleeds Red

July 2014 was a dismal month for the box office. The domestic numbers are in for July 2014, and they're not good. According to our friends at, the domestic box office for July totaled a paltry $966 million, which is down 30 percent from last July. The site also reported that this marks the first time since 2002 in which a July fell short of selling $1 billion in tickets. No matter how you cut it, no month has seen such a falloff year-to-year since January 2011, when the market dropped 29 percent. That was due entirely to the 2010 release of the mammoth Avatar . Yet, news like this isn't exactly a surprise, considering that few films last month peaked our interest, as we lamented in our July Preview post . Apparently, audiences felt the same, staying away in droves almost as soon as the July 4th weekend began. The writing was on the wall as far back as June 27th, when Transformers: Age of Extinction was released, experiencing a massive $100m

Earth to Echo Review: Sterilized for an Emotionally Unsatisfying Experience

The pleasant but emotionally hollow Earth to Echo is more Frankenstein than ET . Echo centers around 3 boys and their 'found footage' adventure to locate the source of an odd radio wave affecting their cellphones and other mobile devices. Their neighborhood will soon be knocked down to build a freeway, but Tuck (Brian “Astro” Bradley), foster kid Alex (Teo Halm) and “acquired taste” Munch (Reese Hartwig) set off on their bikes the night before everyone is to move to investigate the anomaly. What they find are pieces of a starship shot down by an agency claiming to be the freeway company, who's more than interested in discovering its whereabouts. The pilot - a tiny but adorable robot later called Echo - just wants to return home, and so the trio head off to rescue the alien, piece together the ship, and band together once more before their friendship comes to an end. Few might not care about the backstory of Echo 's development, but Disney's decision
