Ah, a week at the box office where the new release flies completely under the radar and everything else feels like it's just hanging out because there's nothing else to push it off the charts. Welcome to January. Welcome to the home of movies like 'I Frankenstein,' which was dead on arrival this weekend and will vanish into dollar theaters within the next week or so.
Apart from the shock that FOX's '24' would live on at all to spawn this May's coming miniseries '24: Live Another Day,' the new adventures of Jack Bauer continue to surprise us with casting.

The four films opening wide on Friday cover a wide range of genres and styles, a little something for everyone.
Russell Johnson, the veteran TV actor best known for playing Professor Roy Hinkley on 'Gilligan's Island,' passed away from kidney failure on Thursday. He was 89.

We'd heard the rumor earlier, but didn't want to believe it for ourselves. HBO period drama 'Boardwalk Empire' will make the upcoming fifth season its final year, putting the last touches on the story of Steve Buscemi's Nucky Thompson, his associates, and organized crime from Atlantic City to Chicago.
