(EXCLUSIVE) #BoxOffice Report: #TheForceAwakens Crushes Several Records in Premiere

Just how big was The Force Awakens this weekend? Read on to find out! Story by Matt Cummings Star Wars: The Force Awakens stormed into local theaters over the weekend, setting several box office records along the way. Some could see it coming: October's trailer release on ESPN generated huge interest, which eventually led to a record pre-sale that saw website crashes and frantic efforts by fans to score first-day tickets. On Monday, Disney reported the final stunning numbers: $247.9m domestically, which shatters the previously held record by Jurassic World earlier this year. And yet, that massive number is only one of several records which The Force Awakens broke. Here are just a few, as provided by BoxOfficeMojo: $57m in its Thursday night "preview", besting Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 ($43.5m) $119.1m on Friday, beating, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 ($91m) $247.9m domestically, beating Jurassic World ($208.8m)

(EXCLUSIVE) #BoxOffice Report: @TheHungerGames Leads Worst Weekend Since 1998

Another week, another disastrous opening for an Oscar contender. Story by Matt Cummings It's clear that while a Ron Howard/Chris Hemsworth marriage looks good on paper, audiences just aren't sold. This weekend's box office proved once again that a to-notch director and a successful Marvel leading man aren't enough to guarantee box office win. Such is the story behind In the Heart of the Sea , as it floundered in the open water with a second place opening to a film that's been in theaters for four weeks. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 kept its No. 1 status for another week, earning just $11.3m. It's second film in the Hunger Games franchise to manage a four-weekend run, and the first since Furious 7 did it back when the summer began. But the news ins't all good: Mockingjay 2 is still the fourth best overall performer in the franchise, crossing just $564m worldwide. At No. 2 is the aforementioned In the Heart of the Sea , making ju

Movie Review: 'In the Heart of the Sea'

In the Heart of the Sea should have stayed in port. Review by Matt Cummings In a time when superhero movies and the revisiting of our childhood brains the box office into submission, In the Heart of the Sea was supposed to arrive as a powerful and refreshing period alternative. But much like the rest of 2015's Oscar driftwood, this tale of an intelligent whale beating inferior men feels uninspiring in many parts and leaves the audience knowing exactly why blockbusters are currently ruling the day. Told from two different perspectives, the story behind Moby Dick is uncovered as an aging survivor (Brendan Gleeson) reveals his harrowing tale to the writer Herman Melville (Ben Wishaw). There, the veteran seaman Owen Chase (Chris Hemsworth) has braved 19th Century whaling as a quick way to earn a captainship while providing for his growing family. Situated in Nantucket - the home of the industry during that time - the need for whale oil couldn't be higher. Unfort
