New in Theaters May 17: John Wick 3, A Dog's Journey, The Sun is Also a Star

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/16/19 at 06:42 AM CT

Three weeks and Endgame continues to reign supreme - but I think it has been long enough. While Detective Pikachu may have come up just short of taking down The Avengers - I'm thinking that John Wick will be able to topple the mighty heroes from their perch. Keaunu Reeves returns for a third outing as the master assassin - now with a hefty price on his head as he tries to avoid other master …

Child's Play, Just Mercy and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/15/19 at 09:41 AM CT

A surprising amount of documentaries and shorts pepper this week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin - not exactly what I was hoping for - but there are at least a couple of wide releases worth mentioning. There is a complete reboot of a horror franchise that rules the creepy doll market. A far-off release that follow's one man's quest for justice in an often unjust world. So, hey, let's count the blessings …

Weekend Box Office: Endgame Tops Detective Pikachu - But Pokemon Still Sets Record

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/12/19 at 11:35 PM CT

While Endgame came out on top for the third straight weekend, and continued both its domestic and worldwide domination, Pokemon: Detective Pikachu wasn't too far behind and can now claim the best opening for a film based on a video game. There were three other new films over the weekend though only The Hustle managed to perform in line with expectations with both Poms and Tolkien struggled to …

New in Theaters May 10: Detective Pikachu, The Hustle, Tolkien, Poms

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/09/19 at 06:39 AM CT

Avengers: Endgame has had no trouble dominating the box office for two straight weekends. The first decent challenger approaches this week with the release of Pokemon: Detective Pikachu, which should give the heroes an actual run for their money. You also have two comedies in The Hustle (a gender-swapped version of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) and Poms (an age-swapped version of Bring It On). And if …

Dark Phoenix, Rocketman and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/08/19 at 05:32 PM CT

Well, thankfully the MPAA Ratings Board has deigned to gift me two major wide releases this week. While Disney has taken over Fox, and thus the X-Men franchise, there are still a few on the docket - one being Dark Phoenix. The other film looks to capitalize on the success of Bohemian Rhapsody by giving us another musical biopic of a larger-than-life figure, Elton John, in the more …

Weekend Box Office: Endgame Crushes Competition; Tops $2 Billion Worldwide

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/05/19 at 08:18 PM CT

While three out of the four new wide-release films (or expanded releases) were in the top five, it was once again Avengers: Endgame that dominated the weekend, here and abroad, and all indications point it to at least having the biggest worldwide total of all time. The Intruder managed to just over perform while both Long Shot and UglyDolls did the opposite but against such competition, one …

New in Theaters May 03: UglyDolls, Long Shot, The Intruder, El Chicano

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/02/19 at 06:35 AM CT

In a staggering opening, Avengers: Endgame shattered pretty much every record over its opening weekend and looks to continue to dominate the box office despite competition from frou new films. In fact, I tend to think that the reason any of these films will do well is because people will still not be able to get into Endgame over the crowded weekend and will seek the next best thing according to …

Nothing Wide in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/01/19 at 09:46 AM CT

It's another big batch of nothing this week. Well, okay, not nothing exactly, but nothing to talk about either. A lot of limited releases on the horizon and a lot of documentaries and some shorts... but you know what there isn't - any wide release. That means nothing to talk about so, thank you to the MPAA Ratings Board and the lack of decent entries. All you get is a big list this week and …
