A bit of a slow week for the MPAA but the box office was full of life (and lot's of death) thanks to a franchise-best opening from John Wick 4. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the longevity of Shazam! Fury of the Gods, which, like Quantumania before it, suffered a steep second-week drop - which Creed III fully took advantage of. And the coming weeks look to profitable as well with …

It's been rough waters for the superhero genre of late. Black Adam was a dud, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania underwhelmed and, joining the gang, Shazam! Fury of the Gods may have topped the box office but it wasn't met with much enthusiasm as people seem to be bidding the old DCEU behind as they await the next chapter. Speaking of the DCEU, this week's MPAA offering has another film, the …

Over the weekend, Scream VI dominated the box office thanks to a franchise-best opening. The dinosaur action/adventure 65 opened a bit soft and the feel-good Champions fell just shy of the top five. Creed III crossed the $100 million mark while Quantumania continued its freefall. Overall the box office had another $100 million plus total weekend - a good sign as the rest of March also looks …

Creed III delivered a knockout at the box office - not just coming in first, but setting record for the franchise (even including the Rocky films). That came at the expense of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which took another big drop. Anime title Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba - To the Swordsmith Village landed in the top five while Guy Ritchie's Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre was a …

On the other hand, both Cocaine Bear and Jesus Revolution opened strongly - suggesting general audiences may be turning their attention to movies beyond the MCU. On the ratings side of …
