Do you want more Conjuring/Annabelle movies?

I liked The Conjuring well enough, and I do find creepy dolls really creepy, but of all the horror franchises in existence to have a horror "universe" born out of it I would not for a moment have guessed it would be the one about ...


Who the hell paid for The Emoji Movie?

Guys, The Emoji Movie made $25.6 million this weekend. That puts it on track to easily eclipse its $50 million budget, and turn Sony a profit. That more than likely means there will be a sequel. There is a high chance that th...


Is Planet of the Apes the best modern trilogy?

With War for the Planet of the Apes opening at number one this weekend, toppling a insanely strong second showing from Spider-Man: Homecoming, we've been asking ourselves whether or not there's a better modern film trilogy out there......


Things not looking so hot for The Mummy

Universal studios desperately wants to launch a movie universe, and they're plan is to do it through their universal monster properties. The first film in this franchise is this weekend's The Mummy. But it appears there may not be any big b...

Logan nets $85 million at box office

With the amount of buzz going into Logan and the positive flooding out from it it may be hard to understand why studio execs were nervous about the film. It was a risky movie, but that risk has paid off with Logan pulling in more ...

Ben-Hur is Summer's biggest flop with $120 million loss

Although we had some major tentpole releases last Summer, even making it the third best box office Summer ever, that didn't mean every release succeeded. Among the Civil Wars and Batmans, was the poor Judah Ben-Hur. According to The Hollywo...


Universal lost $70 million from The Huntsman: Winter's War

Universal Studios, the folks that brought you nearly SEVEN BILLION dollars worth of brain food last year with hits like Jurassic World, Fast & Furious 7 and Minions may lose as much as $70 million dollars, according to Variety. But don&...

The Boss edges out Batman v Superman at the box office

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice would inevitably drop to second place at the box office--such is the law of diminishing returns--yet who would have predicted that Melissa McCarthy's The Boss would knock the boys out? The Boss made $23.48...

Batman v Superman drops 68.4% at box office in second weekend

After setting major records during its opening weekend with $420 million worldwide, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice had a rough second week. The film suffered a second-week drop of 68.4%. Most movies experience a drop in week two, typica...

You can preorder your Assassin's Creed movie ticket for $1200

If you're familiar with the Assassin's Creed videogames, then the notion of preorder bonuses or super expensive special editions is nothing new to you. While theater chains have folks preorder tickets all the time, what 20th Century Fox, Ub...

Box Office Numbers: No Vaseline

As we all figured, Straight Outta Compton is still dominating the box office. It released at just the right time as the Summer was winding down and the award season is still a few weeks away. It's not like it would've got swallowed up by th...

Terminator: Genisys makes bank in China

Currently we can blame China for a lot of crappiness what with their destroying of the world economy in full swing at the moment. On top of this they're probably going to be responsible for a sequel to Terminator: Genisys being made as...

Box Office Numbers: Still Outta Compton

As Summer comes to an end, Straight Outta Compton is free to reign until it's all over. It's a weak release weekend for sure, but Compton's intake doubles every other film's with $26 million. So glad it's caught an audience, and I can't wai...

Box Office Numbers: Compton

I love when Hollywood realizes there's a huge audience out there for films like Straight Outta Compton. I worry about biopics all the time, and I was worried Compton would suffer the same generic fate. But thanks to its timeliness, we final...

Box Office Numbers: Kim Possible

Despite its best effort (or worst apparently, according to our review) Fantastic Four could not accept the impossible mission of taking the top box office spot over the weekend. Mission: Impossible remains a basic average girl with $29 mill...

Box Office Numbers: Gone Roguin'

Dethroning Ant-Man, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation conquered the top of the box office with $56 million. As we're reaching the tale end of Summer, we don't have a lot of big releases left over. So I'd expect M:I to hold strong. It won't...

Box Office Numbers: Ants in the Pants

Despite our circle ranting and raving over Pixels, it seems it's gone largely unnoticed. Ultimately losing out to Ant-Man's $24.7 million with $24 million, Pixels is only in second place. It doesn't really matter since Sandler's films alway...

Box Office Numbers: B-A-N-A-N-A-S

Despite the plea I made in the review, parents are still dishing out tons of money for Minions. With their billion dollar advertising budget, the little buggers have taken over the box office with a whopping $115 million dollar opening. The...

Box Office Numbers: The Outsiders

Thanks to a prolonged July 4th hangover, I totally forgot to see a good movie last weekend. Apparently no one else is having that problem since there was a good amount of change thrown around over the holiday. Jurassic World held a firm top...

Box Office Numbers: Spy vs. Spy

Another week gone, another week of box office numbers. Unsurprisingly, the Melissa McCarthy movie Spy (which apparently isn't as bad as her recent string of bad choices) took the top spot with $30 million, San Andreas is still making money ...

Box Office Numbers: Rocky Road

Dwayne Johnson just can't catch a break, can he? At this point I'm not sure who is to blame. Is Johnson just not that great of an actor or does he just attach himself to terrible projects? After starring in two terrible solo films, maybe he...

Box Office Numbers: Pitchy, dawg

Like most folks last weekend, I was torn between seeing Mad Max and Pitch Perfect 2. With only enough time and money allowing only one of the two, I chose Fury Road because my roommates have done the same. I was originally going to review P...

Box Office Numbers: Avenge Me!

Hey, I finally saw a movie in theaters! Meaning I helped Age of Ultron make even more money as it topped the box office for a second week with $77 million. It'll be interesting how this weekend turns out since we have two big movies for two...

Box Office Numbers: China Still Cool

Furious 7 has raked in over $323 million in China, making it China's highest grossing film ever. The previous highest grossing film was Transformers: Age of Extinction and it had to pander to the foreign audience to get there so good job! N...

Box Office Numbers: Billion Dollar Family

Last week, Furious 7 crossed a billion (with a b) dollars worldwide over 17 days. That makes it Universal's first film in history to cross that mark through its first run in theaters. Also, it's now the fastest (heh) to reach it before prev...

Box Office Numbers: Still Family

After last weekend, Furious 7 is now the best performing film in the series, netting $60.5 million and $252 million overall. Still have yet to see it myself, and considering how invested I am in the series it's pretty unfortunate, but no on...

Box Office Numbers: #FAMILY

As of this writing, I've yet to see Furious 7 for myself. As I predicted forever ago, Walker's untimely demise drew an insane amount of people to the film's premiere over the weekend. It's sadly going to be the best performer in the series ...

Box Office Numbers: Insurgency, Schmensurgency

I haven't been to the theater in quite awhile. This job usually affords me the opportunity, but due to some life stuff I haven't even seen the inside of a theater for about two months now. But thankfully, this is all during March. Looking a...

American Sniper is the top grossing film of 2014

I had a lot of problems with American Sniper as a movie about PTSD and veterans, but despite these issues it had a very good redeeming value of bringing Veteran issues to the forefront of the discussion in America. It seems a lot of pe...
