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-...

Dinosaurs still make money even when they're in a bad movie

It's not too unexpected, but Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opened big this weekend with $150 million box office despite the tepid reviews of the film. Clearly, the franchise has legs, and people still love dinosaurs doing dinosau...

Avengers series will continue after 'Avengers 4'

Guess what movie came in number one the weekend

We all knew that Avengers: Infinity War was going to demolish the box office, which it did to a tune of $250 million, but what's stunning is that it actually out performed expectations. Yes, a movie with stunningly high expectatio...

A Quiet Place almost, almost bests Rampage

If you were some sort of charlatan psychic who predicted box office returns each weekend you would have gotten this weekend very wrong. Looking at the competition between Rampage, a Dwayne Johnson led disaster movie with giants monster...

What's your favorite Spielberg film?

As expected Ready Player One delivered a strong box office over the weekend. We're not talking Marvel-strong, but strong none the less. The film brought in $41.2 million over the Easter weekend, and dominated internationally with ...

Justice League stinks, has the worst B.O. in DCEU history

Surprising no one, with the official end of Justice League's box office run, it stands dead last in the DC Extended Universe tallies. Sad face, JL, sad face. Take a look at the global box office numbers: 1. Batman v Superman: Dawn...

What do you want to see in Phase 4 of the MCU?

Black Panther crushed it once again, pulling in more money than the next seven films combined. That was pretty much a given, though. The film didn't have any competition this week, and pulled in the third biggest gross for a third week...

Will Black Panther anchor the next phases of the MCU?

Black Panther dominated the box office again this weekend, and not just in a way that a movie with no competition normally would. It had the second biggest second weekend in history with $108 million, coming in behind only The For...

Young, white women, why do you love Fifty Shades?

Fifty Shades Freed smashed (relatively) the box office this weekend, propelling the franchise past a billion dollar box office. While the third installment saw a 17 percent drop off from the last film, and a 54 percent drop off from th...

Are we done with the YA adaptation movies?

I don't have to write about Jumanji this week! Ever since Hunger Games tore through the box office every studio out there has been trying to make their own dystopian film series based off a young adult novel, and mostly ...

Is there anything you want to see before Black Panther?

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sure opened at the right time, huh? It's positive word of mouth and the complete lack of competition anywhere else has propelled it into a stellar box office. It pulled way ahead again this weekend, and d...

How much do you love Dwayne Johnson?

Sorry for the lack of box office the past few weeks, but holidays and such. Anyway it pretty much was just Star Wars and Jumanji, and that'll continue for a bit because... well. Blockbuster holiday movies have strong hol...

What genre can't Disney beat DC superhero movies with?

Thanksgiving weekend has long been known for your drunk uncle saying things they probably shouldn't, eating too much turkey, and rousing oneself out of the turkey-induced stupor to see a movie. Usually, this spells good news for big release...

What non-blockbusters are you looking forward to?

Look, we pretty much know what the rest of the year looks like in terms of number one opening weekends. It's going to go like this including this week's number one: Thor > Justice League > Coco > ...

Are Marvel movies really all the same?

Anyone want to take a wild guess at what movie won the box office this weekend? Anybody? Anybody? Bueller? Yea, it was Thor: Rangnarok by a long shot. In fact it made over $100 million more than the next movie on the list, A ...

What's your favorite horror franchise?

With Halloween just two days away, a dismal box office, and Jigsaw hitting the number one spot this weekend (in a most unimpressive manner), seems like the perfect time to ask everyone what their favorite horror franchise was...

Should there be a third Blade Runner?

Usually I try to leave these things open for debate for at least a sentence or two before giving my opinion, but there's clearly a right answer here. While Blade Runner 2049 is probably the best result to come out of a needless se...

Is there any actor that you'll show up to the theater for?

Time was if you shoved Tom Cruise into a movie and emblazoned all the marketing with his name bigger than the name of the movie you'd pretty much have a guaranteed number one opening weekend, and most likely a box office hit. That time has ...

If you need to google a movie to understand it did it fail?

Darren Aronofsky's mother! released this weekend and it struggled pretty hard. That might be because the entire thing is a biblical allegory art house film that is somehow both complicated and blunt at the same time. People came o...
