This weekend saw a neck-and-neck race for the first spot at the box office, with the animated 'Rio 2' offering strong competition for last week's champion, 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.' When the dust, debris and feathers settled, the one starring the superhero took the first slot, but there is no shame in a second place that strong.
After years of playing second fiddle to Disney in the theme park business, Universal is officially coming out swinging. In addition to an expanded focus on their Harry Potter and Simpsons licenses, and a new 'Despicable Me' ride, they have finally announced an attraction based on their massively popular 'Fast and Furious' franchise.
With shooting already begun in some capacity, the full cast of 'Star Wars: Episode 7' should be announced very soon. In the meantime, the fans have been thrown one very large bone: Peter Mayhew, the man behind the faithful Wookie co-pilot Chewbacca, will be among those returning to the galaxy far, far away.
Like 'Iron Man 3' and 'Thor: The Dark World,' the question was never whether or not 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' would take the number one spot at the box office, but rather how much it would earn while sitting pretty at the top of the list. Also, like its "Phase 2" predecessors, the second Steve Rogers adventure proved that people are still punch-drunk in love with the Avengers characters.
Call us suckers, but going by the new trailer for 'The Expendables 3,' we think this may be the one that finally gets it right. Both 'The Expendables' and 'The Expendables 2' were well-meaning but sloppy nostalgia exercises, but we're hoping that the third time is the charm and that this one will be a well-meaning and actually entertaining nostalgia exercise.

Insert your own "when it rains, it pours" joke right here. Darren Aronofsky's instantly controversial biblical epic 'Noah' overcame mixed buzz to win the box office this weekend, catering to both religious audiences and film buffs who like weird movies from unique, picky directors. But all was not well for everyone -- the latest film from a certain Hollywood action legend got washed away in 'Noah''s success.
Both 'Star Trek' fans and beer snobs like to obsess over and complain about the thing they claim to love until they alienate everyone in the room, so it only makes sense to combine that market. Behold! The 'Star Trek' beer Klingon Warnog is here and now you can show off your eclectic alcohol tastes and unsettling dedication to a fictional universe at the same time!
If the main goal of 'Divergent' was to snag a large portion of the audience for 'The Hunger Games,' it looks like it succeeded. Although it didn't reach the absurd heights of Katniss' two movies, Shailene Woodley's dystopian adventure effortlessly nabbed the number one spot and, unless something bad happens next week, announced the arrival of a new big franchise.
