It was a Thanksgiving weekend for the record books - but not the kind you want to be a part of. While initial estimates put the weekend at $94.5 million (per IndieWire) when all was counted things were even worse with a Thanksgiving weekend of just $89.7 million. And, as pointed out, you have to go all the way back to 1994 to find another year when the Thanksgiving weekend box office posted a …

It's about time the MPAA kicked things into gear, offering a trio of films rather than a single entry for the first time in, I don't know, a month or so? Anyway, while I give thanks for that - the box office is still thankful for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which easily took the top spot once again, keeping things afloat for now.

While Black Panther: Wakanda Forever didn't have the …

While Black Adam bravely attempted to bring the blockbuster back, leave it to the MCU to finish the job as Black Panther: Wakanda Forever truly gave the box office the boost it needed after a dreadful post-summer slump. While it may have fallen short of the exceedingly high expectations set after the first film - as well as having to move on following the tragic death of star Chadwick Boseman - …

It was another case of the box-office blahs as Black Adam once again took the top spot, with anime One Piece Film: Red coming in second. But with just $53.8 million total, it was still on the lowest-grossing weekends of the year - but things should look much better with the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which is shaping up to be one of the biggest, if not THE biggest, openings of …

"The Power of the Dog" (2021) Jane Campion returns to the kind of mythic frontier landscape - pulsating with both freedom and menace - that she previously traversed in "The Piano" in order to plumb the masculine psyche in "The Power of the Dog," set against the desolate plains of 1920s Montana and adapted by the filmmaker from Thomas Savage’s novel. After a sensitive widow …

After becoming the first blockbuster since we ended the summer season, Black Adam once again ruled the box office, though not without taking a significant hit. The only new film to open, Prey for the Devil, may have tried to take advantage of the spooky holiday but had minimal impact over the weekend. The MPAA continues to trickle out its own treats with yet another single title that once again …
