Fantastic Beasts, Bad Santa 2, Sing and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 08/31/16 at 09:32 AM CT

So what if the summer movie season is over? That doesn't mean we have to kiss all the good movies goodbye. Case in point - though the source material is rather thin, I'm looking forward to seeing the continuation of the Potter universe in the (supposedly) darker Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. We also have a sequel to a raunchy Billy Bob Thorton vehicle featuring the worlds worst Santa a...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of August 30-September 5

Harley Lond - wrote on 08/30/16 at 02:36 AM CT

As we slowly head toward the end of Summer and segue to Labor Day, the weekly new releases slow to a trickle. But fear not: The Summer tent-pole films start arriving mid-September (with "Captain America: Civil War," "The Conjuring 2," "Central Intelligence") and continue making DVD and Blu-ray waves into the holidays. In the meantime ...

Weekend Box Office: Don't Breathe Knocks Off Suicide Squad With Scary Good Opening

Chris Kavan - wrote on 08/28/16 at 08:08 PM CT

It has been a good year for horror and the final weekend of August once again had a small-budget offering scaring up a big win. That meant that Suicide Squad had to give up its crown in its fourth weekend. Meanwhile, Jason Statham's Resurrection was solid while Hands of Stone scaled back its opening and finished well outside the top 10. Still, with most of the new films over performing, the top 1...

New in Theaters August 26: Don't Breathe, Hands of Stone, Mechanic: Resurrection

Chris Kavan - wrote on 08/25/16 at 06:44 AM CT

Suicide Squad has managed to hold on remarkably well for being a film that hasn't exactly resonated with either critics or audiences. But it is looking like it will finally have to give up its title this week with a horror moving breathing down its neck along with a boxing biopic and Jason Statham up to his usual action antics. The combination will likely be enough to dethrone the super villain t...

Trolls, Madea Halloween, Middle School Worst Years and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 08/24/16 at 10:25 AM CT

While it's not quite all quiet on the ratings front, things are pretty much normal and steady. We once again have a trio of big-name films getting their ratings - a family-friendly animated hit about a popular toy that hit its stride in the 60s, the return of everyone's favorite sassy cross-dresser, Madea, and enough teen angst to fill the Grand Canyon. Maybe it's your cup of tea, maybe not, but...

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

Harley Lond - wrote on 08/23/16 at 02:30 AM CT

There's a mixed bag of releases coming to home video this week: The surprise hit action-thriller-comedy "The Nice Guys" turns the buddy film sideways with the unlikely pairing of a down-on-his-luck private eye (Ryan Gosling) with a hired enforcer (Russell Crowe) who hurts people for a living. Fate turns them into unlikely partners after a young woman named Amel...

Weekend Box Office: Suicide Squad Fends Off War Dogs, Kubo as Ben-Hur Chokes on the Dust

Chris Kavan - wrote on 08/21/16 at 07:21 PM CT

I thought it was the end of the line for Suicide Squad but both the top new contenders came in under-performing and as the villainous menagerie held on to the top spot while the raunchy Sausage Party also held on to its second place spot. Even though the weekend was down 25% compared to last week, it was up 30% compared to last year as August continues to be a strong month for 2016. If Suicide Sq...

Chris Kavan - wrote on 08/18/16 at 06:47 AM CT

Suicide Squad may have had one good week and one decent follow-up, but something tells me the third time is not going to be the charm for the anti-hero league. Three films are coming out swinging, including Laika Entertainment's latest animated offering that even if it doesn't match the returns of Disney, still looks like one of the year's best. We also have a comedic look into the horrors of war...

Miss Peregrine's Home, Disappointments Room and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 08/17/16 at 10:36 AM CT

One could say that while the updates this week may be few, at least they have good quality. One of my favorite books I have read in the past year is coming to the big screen - who knew a book based around some creepy old photographs would have such a big impact. Yes, my friends, Miss Peregrine and her Peculiar Children are just about here. The other big film is a much-delayed thriller (due to all...

"Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made" (2016): After Steven Spielberg's classic "Raiders of the Lost Ark" was released 35 years ago, three 11-year-old boys from Mississippi set out on what would become a 7-year-long labor of love and tribute to their favorite film: a faithful, shot-for-shot adaptation of the action adventure film.

Weekend Box Office: Suicide Squad Holds Top Spot, Sausage Party Stuffs Pete's Dragon

Chris Kavan - wrote on 08/14/16 at 10:33 PM CT

It was another win for DC's villainous heroes but, like so many films this year, it took quite a big hit over its opening weekend. In new films, the R-rated animated Sausage Party was the big winner, coming in well ahead of most forecasts while Pete's Dragon scored with critics but didn't entice audiences. As for Meryl Streep, it was another case of well-received but somewhat disappointing result...

Chris Kavan - wrote on 08/11/16 at 06:37 AM CT

With Suicide Squad having conquered the August box office opening record, the big question is whether it is going to crash and burn in its second weekend following withering reviews or if it can weather the storm and continue its run. Now, Star Trek Beyond and Jason Bourne has both proven to be second-week losers so the deck is stacked against Suicide Squad. Luckily, most of the movies this week ...

Blair Witch, Deepwater Horizon, Snowden and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 08/10/16 at 09:53 AM CT

It has been a few weeks of, frankly, disappointing ratings. But this week, ho boy, do we have some much more interesting films that have long been on my radar. We have two based-on-true stories - one of a recent major disaster and another on a highly controversial figure (from a highly controversial director - should be good) and one surprise horror reboot that was just recently announced. All in...

Weekend Box Office: Suicide Squad Scores August Record as Jason Bourne Takes a Tumble

Chris Kavan - wrote on 08/07/16 at 09:39 PM CT

It was really no contest. Even with the pretty awful reviews, Suicide Squad came out on top and destroyed the previous August record. The only dark cloud on the horizon for the DC film is that it played incredibly front-loaded and considering the massive drops both Star Trek and Jason Bourne have both taken, it's a pretty good bet Suicide Squad is also going to have a big drop-off next weekend. S...

New in Theaters August 05: Suicide Squad, Nine Lives

Chris Kavan - wrote on 08/04/16 at 06:45 AM CT

There is pretty much no doubt as to which film is going to open on top this weekend. For months now all we have heard about is how different Suicide Squad is going to be from Batman v. Superman - DC needs a win and this is supposed to be their answer. Aside from that, Kevin Spacey is a cat. I have a feeling I know what film is going to get the bulk of attention. Granted, Jason Bourne should hopef...

FROM THE BIG SCREEN: Yorgos Lanthimos, the director behind the Academy Award-nominated "Dogtooth," helmed the provocative, edgy, and wicked "The Lobster," a film about love, relationships, and societal conformity. In a near future, society holds "romance" so dearly that unattached, single people are sent off to a strange hotel where they must partner up or be turned into

La La Land, The Wild Life, Bastards and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 08/02/16 at 07:54 PM CT

Harley Lond is going to be delayed with his usual DVD blog so I'm stepping up early with the MPAA Ratings Bulletin instead. Too bad this week is a bit on the boring side. An animated film with no big voices, a musical (an original too) and a comedy about finding your family. Hey, at least two out of the three star J.K. Simmons. Sure, all three are wide releases but I can't say any of them have m...
