As summer winds down, it seems the box office is doing the same as DC League of Super Pets had a decent though not spectacular opening while Jordon Peele's Nope took a 58% spill. While there is one more guaranteed hit coming - the next two months are going to be rough for the box office and we may not get much fireworks until late fall. If the box office is slowing down the MPAA is following …

No major theatrical releases on DVD or Blu-ray this week.

THIS WEEK'S BEST BET:
Known for his impressively eclectic filmography and for helping to launch the careers of several young Hollywood stars of the 80s and 90s, Joel Schumacher ("The Lost Boys," "St. Elmo's Fire") tackles the existential question that, at one time or another, haunts us all: what awaits us after …

Jordon Peele's Nope came out on top of the box office with the best opening for an original film... since the last Jordon Peele film. Both Thor: Love and Thunder and Minions: The Rise of Gru continue to stay strong. On the MPAA side of things, while this week brought one of the largest amount of ratings this year, it was super short on content and I had to stretch to have something to talk …

Thor continued to pack a mighty punch at the box office, fending off a stronger-than-expected Where the Crawdads Sing and a getting little challenge from the disappointing opening of Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank. The MPAA gives us a double-dose of wide releases this week - both trending on the action side of things.

Thor: Love and Thunder was pretty much always expected to take the crown …

FROM THE BIG SCREEN
"The Bob's Burgers Movie" (2021) An animated, big-screen, musical comedy-mystery-adventure based on the long-running Emmy-winning series. The story begins when a ruptured water main creates an enormous sinkhole right in front of Bob's Burgers, blocking the entrance indefinitely and ruining the Belchers' plans for a successful summer. While Bob and Linda struggle to keep the …

Another short and sweet update from the MPAA Ratings Board this week as we have but a single animated release to tide us over. Meanwhile, Thor brought plenty of thunder to the box office even as audiences and critics may have wavered a bit on Taika Waititi's Ragnarok followup. Might this be the last, big hurrah for summer movies? Time will tell, but it's looking like it could be the last major …

After last week's embarrassment of riches the MPAA Ratings Board slows things down back to normal with a single wide release and two major streaming titles. Meanwhile, over the long 4th of July holiday weekend, The Minions ruled - setting a new record in the process while Top Gun: Maverick continued to soar to new heights.

When Lightyear landed with a relative thud, theories abounded about …
