Weekend Box Office: Avengers: Infinity War Breaks Records in Huge Opening

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/29/18 at 08:02 PM CT

The question going into this weekend wasn't whether Avengers: Infinity War was going to have a huge opening, the only question was how big it would be. That answer to that question is not just big, but biggest... ever. Shattering multiple records, Infinity War proves the MCU has continued box office clout and any talk of superhero fatigue should be shelved indefinitely. And it isn't just domestic...

New in Theaters April 29: Avengers: Infinity War

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/26/18 at 06:43 AM CT

It is finally here - the culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe - an epic film featuring 76 characters, that's right, Infinity War has landed. As if the MCU needed any help, but certainly the huge showing for Black Panther is only going to serve the film even better. Infinity War has already set records for pre-ticket sales and estimates, on the conservative side, point to a $225 million op...

Ocean's 8 and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/25/18 at 09:46 AM CT

Two steps forward, one step back. I keep hoping that a meaty update will come along to whet my appetite, but all I keep getting are crumbs. Once again, the MPAA Ratings Board leaves me wanting so much more as there is but a single wide release getting its ratings due. At least the film is going to be decent - a female twist on the Ocean's franchise that, unlike a certain movie about busting ghost...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of April 24--April 30

Harley Lond - wrote on 04/24/18 at 03:17 PM CT

FROM THE BIG SCREEN:
Like the closing episodes of other major teen-oriented series of late -- "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," "Twilight" and the "Harry Potter" movies -- "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" tries to tie up all the loose ends and give satisfying closure to the series -- with mixed results. It does it, all right, but not after bogging down somewhat as our heroes navigate t...

Weekend Box Office: A Quiet Place Retakes First as I Feel Pretty, Super Troopers 2 Open Solid

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/22/18 at 07:31 PM CT

Rampage lasted one week atop the box office, but it has been horror film A Quiet Place that has dominated the big screen. The breakout horror hit managed to retake the top spot while Rampage had to settle for second. Amy Schumer's I Feel Pretty opened in line with expectations in third while comedy sequel Super Troopers 2 opened much better than expected in fourth. Truth or Dare rounds out the to...

New in Theaters April 20: Super Troopers 2, I Feel Pretty, Traffik

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/19/18 at 06:40 AM CT

Rampage burst onto the scene last weekend, while A Quiet Place continued to show a lot of staying power, becoming one of highest-grossing horror films hitting $100 million in just two weeks. This weekend offers up a sequel to cult favorite comedy, another female-centric comedy and a weekend getaway turned thriller when a biker gang gets involved. Despite the competition, it's hard to see Rampage ...

Hereditary, Dog Days, Where'd You Go, Bernadette and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/18/18 at 09:06 AM CT

Well, well, well - I guess a little bump is better than no bump at all. After several weeks (months? - I've lost count) of exactly two ratings worth talking about, the MPAA Ratings Boards has graced me with three movies to talk about. Cue the choir. While I'm certainly happy for the increase, only one of hte new movies really has my attention - a horror film getting all the buzz that is shaping u...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of April 17--April 23

Harley Lond - wrote on 04/17/18 at 03:52 AM CT

FROM THE BIG SCREEN:
Steven Spielberg's by-the-numbers "The Post" is an historical drama based on the events surrounding the release of the Pentagon Papers, documents that detailed the history of the United States' political and military involvement in Vietnam. It's a saccharine drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post's Katharine Graham (Meryl Streep), the ...

Weekend Box Office: Rampage Tops Box Office as A Quiet Place Nears $100 Million

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/15/18 at 09:26 PM CT

Dwayne Johnson can breath a sigh of relief. Though it was neck-and-neck with A Quiet Place, Rampage eventually came out on top to win the weekend. The opening may not be as rock solid as one would hope, but the raging beasts earned decent enough reviews and audiences seemed happy as well. The bad news is that the film has just one more week to impress before Avengers makes all the money. Speaking...

New in Theaters April 13: Rampage, Sgt. Stubby, Isle of Dogs, Beirut, Truth or Dare

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/12/18 at 06:40 AM CT

It has been a nice mix at the theater this year. Black Panther was a huge hit, Ready Player One was nerd-tastic fun and A Quiet Place proved horror still has what it takes. This week is about to add a lot more to the mix. Dwayne Johnson returns hoping Rampage can crush the competition. Sgt. Stubby looks to corral the family crowd while Truth or Dare hopes there is room for two competing horror ti...

Avengers: Infinity War, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/11/18 at 09:49 AM CT

The consistency of that old "two decent ratings a week" is alive and well, folks but at least this time the two movies are, to paraphrase a certain Commander in Chief "Huuuuuuuuuge!" Avengers assemble once again in what is certain to be, if not the biggest, certainly damn close (Black Panther set the bar awfully high) and we get to return to Jurassic World in what is also certain to be a massive ...

Weekend Box Office: A Quiet Place Makes Some Noise, Ready Player One Holds Second, Blockers Third

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/08/18 at 07:45 PM CT

It was a great weekend for genre films. A Quiet Place provided one of the best openings for a horror film and Blockers proved that comedy is still a strong draw. Black Panther continued its blazing path to glory while Ready Player One was a second-week winner, here and abroad. The limited box office likewise enjoyed a great debut from You Were Never Really Here while Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs b...

New in Theaters April 06: A Quiet Place, Blockers, Chappaquiddick, The Miracle Season

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/05/18 at 06:49 AM CT

Ready Player One became Steve Spielberg's biggest opening in nearly a decade last weekend. This weekend it will face off against a silent (but deadly) horror film, a R-rated comedy of parental control, a fact-based drama and an uplifting story. Oh, and Black Panther is still on the prowl even after seven weeks of shows. It will be interesting to see how Spielberg's nerd-fest nostalgia trip holds ...

Captive State and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/04/18 at 09:15 AM CT

Sigh - a familiar pattern is emerging, and one that leaves me with naught to do but hope for better. Once again, I'm faced with the stark reality of only being able to talk about one new wide release this week but at least this time it's a much more intriguing film. It's an interesting take on being occupied by enemy forces, so at least there's that. That's all you get, again, but I hold out hope...

Weekend Box Office: Ready Player One, Acrimony Power Easter Weekend

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/01/18 at 08:01 PM CT

Ready Player One had virtually no competition and, as such, turned out to be Steven Spielberg's best opening in nearly a decade. Meanwhile, Tyler Perry also had a good debut with Acrimony while the faithful continued to support I Can Only Imagine as the third entry in the God's Not Dead series was buried and doesn't look to be resurrected any time soon. Black Panther continued to enjoy a steady h...
