Weekend Box Office: Deadpool Offs Gods, Eagle in Threepeat Win

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/28/16 at 06:44 PM CT

It should come as little surprise that Deadpool had little problem holding off the CGI spectacle of Gods of Egypt as well as the uplifting Olympic biopic Eddie the Eagle and the crime thriller Triple 9. With the Oscars coming out tonight we can reflect on how none of the above-mentioned films will be nominated for anything next year, though if there was an award for sheer brazen kick-assery, obvi...

New in Theaters February 25: Gods of Egypt, Eddie the Eagle and Triple 9

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/25/16 at 06:42 AM CT

Deadpool has been on an R-rated, all-out box office blitz with little in the way of competition. That could finally change as there is a big-budget CGI epic, a crime thriller and (another) uplifting sports story all vying for that coveted top spot. Deadpool still might have the edge for one more week as the competition, while varied, may not be quite enough to unseat the crowd-pleasing hero. I th...

The Brothers Grimsby, Kevin Hart: What Now? and More in This Week's MPAA Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/24/16 at 11:05 AM CT

Hot one week, cool the next. After a decent amount of movies last week, we'er back to getting just a trickle. Two wide release films and a couple of limited-releases are all that we can look forward to this week. But I can't complain - I'll take what I can get and look forward to that one week I have to write up like eight new ratings releases. Anyway, we have a British buddy/brother spy comedy a...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of February 23-29

Harley Lond - wrote on 02/23/16 at 03:49 AM CT

Upholding the grand cinema tradition of films about hard-working journalists who expose corruption and malfeasance ("All the President's Men" comes to mind immediately) is director Tom McCarthy's "Spotlight," a superbly directed and acted dramatization of the Boston Globe's Pulitzer Prize-winning "Spotlight" team investigation into allegations of child sex...

Weekend Box Office: Deadpool Continue R-Rated Rampage, Risen, The Witch Open Solid

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/21/16 at 07:33 PM CT

So what if the Merc with the Mouth isn't going to be hosting Saturday Night Live? It turns out the red-suited hero prone to violence has plenty left to celebrate after another dominating weekend victory and an increasingly impressive world-wide total. But don't think that just because Deadpool is leading the charts that the newcomers were left out. Two out of the three managed to break in to the ...

New in Theaters February 19: Race, Risen, The Witch

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/18/16 at 06:51 AM CT

With Deadpool breaking all kinds of records over the long President's Day weekend, do any new films have a hope to topple the R-rated hero? I would say it's going to be a tough challenge and though there are worthy films, Deadpool is likely to rule the roost for at least another weekend. That being said, we have a sports biography, a horror film and a biblical drama all looking to make their mark...

Desierto, Divergent Series: Allegiant, Pete's Dragon and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/17/16 at 05:43 PM CT

I have been bemoaning the somewhat lackluster offerings (for the most part) over the last few weeks. This week, we have a winner as there is a rather robust offering from the ratings gods. From teenage angst to a gritty immigration horror story to a a family-friendly reboot - there is a lot to look forward to. There is is also a large offering from the second-tier family of limited release films....

Due to unforeseen complications, Harley Lond's regularly scheduled column will return next week and instead will be provided by yours truly. I will cover the main releases, along with anything else that tickles my fancy. Luckily, this week anyway, there there are plenty of big releases to talk about, including a couple of Oscar-nominated films and lots of drama. A pretty good lineup as we approac...

Weekend Box Office: Deadpool Dominates in Record Fashion, Zoolander 2 Stumbles on the Catwalk

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/14/16 at 08:49 PM CT

Talk about a bloody Valentine - Deadpool didn't just win the weekend - it pretty much blew away every expectation right along with it. We'll get to those records in a minute, but let us turn to the lukewarm reception for How to Be Single, which really didn't benefit from the holiday and, despite a massive marketing campaign - the disappointing return of Derek Zoolander. Meanwhile, it was another ...

New in Theaters February 12: Deadpool, Zoolander 2, How to Be Single

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/11/16 at 06:39 AM CT

This Valentine's Day weekend, nothing says I love you like an R-rated superhero action/comedy featuring the most anticipated anti-hero to come along in awhile. Or you could go the more traditional route and watch Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson and Leslie Mann navigate the new-age singles scene or forget both of those and just watch a straight-up comedy sequel fifteen years in the making. The strong...

Zoolander 2, Nine Lives, Eddie the Eagle and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/10/16 at 11:23 AM CT

Finally, after a few weeks of little to no new updates, we have got ourselves a fine batch of new ratings. Some movies just had to wait until the last minute (looking at you Zoolander 2) before deciding on a rating, while others were more proactive. Aside from the comedic sequel we have an uplifting sports story and body-switching family-friendly film that hearkens back to the Shaggy Dog days of ...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of February 9-15

Harley Lond - wrote on 02/09/16 at 05:53 AM CT

"Spectre" is the 24th "official" James Bond/007 big-screen adventure (not including the 1967 "Casino Royale" and the 1983 "Never Say Never Again") and -- despite the naysayers -- it continues the Bond tradition of mixing fast-paced action sequences and stunts with high-tech gadgets, nasty megalomaniac villains, and a little bit of love-interest.

Weekend Box Office: Kung Fu Panda 3 Repeats, Hail, Caesar! Top Among Newcomers

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/07/16 at 09:16 PM CT

It was a super weekend... if you were a fan of football. For Hollywood, the weekend was down over 40% compared to last year (but only $2.9 million lower than Superbowl Weekend 2014, for what that matters). A lot of that has to do with the rather tepid response to most of the new films with the Coen Brothers settling for alright while Nicholas Sparks and a zombie adaptation of a classic novel both...

New in Theaters February 05: Hail, Caesar!, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, The Choice

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/04/16 at 06:44 AM CT

With Kung Fu Panda 3 wracking up a record animated opening, January ended on a high note - especially after an East Coast blizzard made the previous week a bust. Now we enter February with a hopeful continuation of some decent box office returns. Leading the charge, the Coen Brothers channel the golden age of Hollywood in a comedic crime, we have zombie invading Jane Austen's seminal novel and ye...

Triple 9 and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/03/16 at 10:34 AM CT

Another week, another light update to the ratings rank. At least this week there is one wide release we can celebrate - otherwise, once again, it's pretty slim pickings. A few limited release films and a few that probably won't even see the inside of a theater. One of these weeks I'm going to get my wish and be inundated with like 10 films to add to the list, but I guess for now I'll take what I ...

"Bridge of Spies": Director Steven Spielberg has a knack for creating absorbing and watchable films, no matter the topic. And he has had very few duds in his 40-plus year career, a success rate that not many other directors can lay a claim to. Add "Bridge of Spies" to Spielberg's list of enjoyable -- if not great -- films. This outing is a real-lif...
