"The Internship" may have had the big names and the big expectations, but it was "The Purge" that received the big payday at the box office this weekend, as the dystopian horror flick shocked expectations by bringing in a whopping $36.4 million according to Film.com.
That was more than enough to overshadow not just Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn's reunion in "The Internship," which debuted in fourth place with $18.1 million, but also returning hits "Fast & Furious 6" ($19.8 million) and "Now You See Me" ($19.5 million).
Next week, of course, will likely be a different story thanks to the debut of "Man of Steel." But for now, "The Purge" reigns.

According to Film.com, Will Smith's new sci-fi epic "After Earth" took a massive header at the box office this weekend, allowing Vin Diesel and company to slip into the number one spot for the second weekend in a row, as "Fast & Furious 6" earned an estimated $34 million.
How bad was it for "After Earth?" The team-up between Smith and son Jaden proved to be the latest flop by director M. Night Shyamalan, bringing in $27 million. That doesn't sound too bad, but the film cost over $120 million to make and had been expected to top the box office. Instead, it had to settle for third place behind fellow newcomer "Now You See Me," which earned $28 million.
For a full run down of the weekend's box office top ten, including figures for returning favorites "Iron Man 3," "The Great Gatsby" and "The Hangover Part III," head to Film.com.
Greetings from the apocalypse! This here is my twentieth weekend column, which seemed like as good a time as any to reach out to my fellow weekend road warriors to say if you have any suggestions for upcoming films/local weekend events to feature in future editions just write me on Twitter. Signed 8 x 10 glossies will be sent to fans at my secretary's discretion. But seriously, write away — give this wandering rōnin of the desert some feedback, yo. Get More »
Have you ever watched a "Fast and Furious" movie (any of the previous five qualify, including "Tokyo Drift," we guess) and thought, "Man, this is good, but I kind of wish there was less action. Less fights, less explosions, less street races. Actually, you know what would be great? If this was directed by Sofia Coppola." Of course you have. Who hasn't? Get More »
Hey guys, remember a couple weeks ago when we mentioned that Tom Hiddleston was in talks to play the lead in the upcoming reboot of "The Crow?" Considering Hiddleston is still hot as hell thanks to his turn as Loki in the record smashing box office blockbuster "The Avengers," and that he was aggressively pursuing the role, it seemed like pretty much a done deal, right?
Well, not so much apparently, because according to Deadline, the folks at Relativity Media have decided to pass on Hiddleston after all and instead are planning to sign up Luke Evans to play the undead goth superhero. Get More »
It's summer, summer, summertime, time to sit back and unwind, as The Fresh Prince once rhymed. Iron Man, Wolverine, Superman and Hit-Girl are suiting up and the AC is pumping as studios trot out their big guns, eager to put butts in the seats with big stars, bigger explosions and lots of numbers after titles.
That's right, nearly a third of our list is sequels, there's even more that didn't make it, and that doesn't even count the reboots and potential franchise-starters in store as we dive headfirst into our glistening pool of summer movie bliss. Get More »

Just how fast are the "Fast & Furious" film? They're so fast they actually have gotten ahead of themselves, as rumors over who will be directing "Fast & Furious 7" are swirling even before "Fast & Furious 6" has hit theaters.
There've been murmurs of Universal Pictures' plans for a seventh installment to the "Fast & Furious" franchise for a couple of years now, but it looks like Vin Diesel was much too eager for the
hot rod cat to be pulled out of the garage bag this weekend to hold the secret in any longer.
Via Facebook, he announced Saturday (so no April Fool's Day joke involved here) in no unclear terms that the sequel has indeed been greenlit, that a shooting location has been narrowed and that a production schedule is now in place for the flick.
Clearly, Vin Diesel's vocabulary doesn't include the term "embargo." Get More »
He's walked tall, been cool and felt the need for speed in "Faster" and "Fast Five." Now, 2013 is truly the Year of the Rock, with the WWE Champion appearing in no less than five feature films.
We begin this week with the release of "Snitch," in which he plays the greatest dad in the world. Five weeks later, he'll be fighting for freedom in the "G.I. Joe" sequel (March 29), and four weeks after that he'll be robbing from the rich in Michael Bay's "Pain and Gain." (April 26). That's not all — four weeks after that, he'll be feeling that need for speed again with "Fast & Furious 6" (May 24). You'd think he'd take a vacation after all that, but no, he'll also be investigating an armored car heist in "Empire State," which will probably hit theaters this fall.
Let's get the Year started with hotness, shall we?
