New in Theaters June 28: The Heat, White House Down

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/27/13 at 03:13 PM CT

Last weekend the potent combination of Pixar's Monsters and Brad Pitt's zombies proved a recipe for box office success. This weekend sees the return of comedy and blockbuster action - but will it be enough to unseat a popular family film from the top spot? I think the deciding factor this weekend is going to be what the female audience shows up for: two top female comedians or a buff and sweaty C...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of June 25-July 1

"No:" On September 11, 1973, a CIA-backed military coup overthrew Chile's democratically elected government of President Salvador Allende, ushering in almost two decades of a repressive, fascist government -- headed by General Augusto Pinochet -- that caused the torture and/or disappearance of more than 40,000 citizens. By 1988, facing international pr...

Weekend Box Office: Monsters, Zombies Take a Bite Out of Box Office

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/24/13 at 01:47 AM CT

It certainly was a monster weekend at the box office. Thanks to the two newest entries providing a big splash, the total box office managed to break into the top 10 for the 9th-best total box office total of all time. The good news wasn't limited to just new movies - although a certain superhero is probably wishing the competition didn't do as well as they did. Still, going into July, the box off...

New in Theaters June 21: Monsters University, World War Z

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/20/13 at 01:57 PM CT

Man of Steel took flight with a record June opening last weekend - helped in no small part by an extra boost from Father's Day. This week sees the return of the family film along with a Brad Pitt's horror film darling that has been marketed to death and could still fall flat on its undead face. If Superman can continue to hold strong, however, the weekend may still come out as a win for Hollywood...

"Stoker" is the U.S.-directorial debut of the great South Korean director Park Chan-wook ("Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance," "Oldboy," "Thirst") and it's quite an achievement. What starts out as a dysfunctional family drama spirals into an involving and intriguing mystery-thriller that becomes a modern-day riff on Hitchcock's "Shadow of a Doubt" -- but with...

Weekend Box Office: Man of Steel Proves Super in Record-Breaking Debut

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/16/13 at 09:16 PM CT

If there were any fears that Superman couldn't keep up with other heroes, those fears were put to rest over the weekend. It turns out that audiences still had a place in their hearts despite the underwhelming reaction to Superman Returns. Add in a decent haul for a star-studded apocalyptic comedy and a couple of strong holdovers, and this weekend proved to be very super indeed.

1) MAN OF S...

New in Theaters June 14: Man of Steel, This is the End

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/13/13 at 06:21 PM CT

Last week horror trumped comedy - but this week comedy should make a comeback... along with another major blockbuster whose success of failure is going to make or break the future of a new superhero franchise. We also get our first major post-apocalyptic comedy - and considering the all-star lineup (and cameos) involved, it should have no problem washing the bad taste of recent failures out of th...

The FilmCrave Interview: Jake Hull Proves Filmmaking is Alive and Well in Nebraska

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/11/13 at 06:50 PM CT

As some FilmCrave members may or may not know, the three current operators of this site all grew up in the small town of Wahoo, NE (population: 4528 as of 2011). One of the "Five Famous Sons" of Wahoo is filmmaker Daryl F. Zanuck - legendary producer and co-creator of 20th Century Fox. But there is another filmmaker I'm here to talk about today, one who didn't move out of Wahoo when he was 6 - bu...

"Oz the Great and Powerful": Director Sam Raimi and the folks at Disney obviously struggled long and hard to create a worthy prequel to the masterful 1939 "Wizard of Oz," and based on the eye-popping visuals (deigned with the 3D process in mind), the CGI and VFX specialists kept up their end of the bargain. But the rest of the crew, including an A-list...

Weekend Box Office: The Purge Wipes Out Competition

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/09/13 at 08:43 PM CT

Things were horrific at the box office - not for the box office itself, just that the top movie was a horror movie for the first time since Evil Dead in April. It turns out that the might of Google is not enough to power the film industry as Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson's reunion couldn't help The Internship make much of a mark at the box office. Meanwhile, two popular films managed to cross the ...

New in Theaters June 07: The Internship, The Purge

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/06/13 at 09:22 AM CT

After Earth sputtered at take off while Now You See Me did better than expected last weekend. But even with new competition, including a comedy and the rare summer horror film, I still think that Fast 6 is going to continue to be the movie to beat - at least until Man of Steel lands in two weeks. Still, can a pairing of beloved comedians and a Ethan Hawke returning to horror once again spell succ...

"Warm Bodies": I'm always thirsty for zombie flicks of all kinds, from the original "Dead" gorefests through "Dead Alive" to the more modern interpretations such as "28 Days Later"; I particularly have a soft spot for zombie comedies such as "Fido," "Zombieland" and "Shaun of the Dead." Now comes a zombie romcom, replete with star-crossed lovers, a stu...

Weekend Box Office: Fast 6 Speeds Away with Win, After Earth Fails to Lift Off

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/03/13 at 12:10 AM CT

After an adrenaline-fueled Memorial Day weekend, audiences sure turned down the volume with last week's film taking some big drops and the new releases posting a modest success and big disappointment. The good news is that even if some films didn't live up to expectations, compared to last year the overall box office was still up 13%. It's not going to totally save the day, but any news is good n...
