Hellboy and Missing Link flop hard in this mid-April slump

Surprising no one, all of the bad publicity and reviews took its toll on Hellboy. With Shazam! having a surprising amount of strength going for it, it was the movie to beat for all of this week's new releases. Unfortunately, Hellboy ca...

Dumbo flies in with a winning box office

We're not going to be calling Dumbo a hit any time soon unless something magical happens. The film, which would be the first real flop in Disney's sturdy line of animated remakes, pulled in only $45 million. While Pete's Dragon&nb...

Warner Bros. loses some of LEGO Movie 2's pieces

With how AWESOME the original LEGO Movie was Warner Bros. was all set for a massive hit this weekend with the sequel The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, but evidently they didn't do too good a job constructing the sequel. While rev...

Holiday weekend is a good time for M. Night Shyamalan

It looks like the middling reviews from grumpy critics didn't slow Glass down too much over the long weekend. The film pulled in an estimated $47 million over the four day weekend, which puts it slightly under the $50 million expectati...

With no competition, Aquaman tops Box Office again

Spider-Man, Spider-Man. Does whatever box office hits can.

It was a huge weekend for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, as the film debuted to the largest animated opening ever recorded in December with $35.4 million. That's clearly nothing to scoff at, and also means another win for Marvel propert...

Halloween slashes the competition with best franchise opening

While this is about as surprising as Michael Myers killing people, Halloween came in at the top of the box office, knocking off Venom which had held the top spot for the past two weeks. Coming in at $77.5 million, this is the best opening w...

Ant-Man and the Wasp lands another success for Marvel

Looking at the raw numbers you'd have to say that Ant-Man and the Wasp was a letdown for Marvel. After all, their last five openings easily crossed the $100 million dollar mark on opening weekend without even trying, and Ant-...

AI will determine what scripts get greenlit in the future
