Weekend Box Office: Aquaman Threepeats as Escape Room Opens Strong in Second

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/06/19 at 07:13 PM CT

The DCU continues to benefit from Aquaman, which easily topped the box office for the third straight weekend. It also continues to dominate overseas as its overall worldwide total nears the $1 billion mark. Meanwhile, it was good news for Escape Room and it turns out January is still a fertile field for horror movie openings. Escape Room, surprisingly, may have affected the other holdovers with …

New in Theaters January 04: Escape Room

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/03/19 at 06:55 AM CT

Out with the old in with the new as 2019 rings in with a mighty... squeak. That's right, our first weekend of the new year brings us just a single new film, and Escape Room is not likely to be much of a challenge to holdovers like Aquaman or Mary Poppins Returns. Granted, there were supposed to be two horror films... but Eli got shipped to Netflix and is unknown whether the streaming giant will …

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!:

FROM THE BIG SCREEN:
"Night School" is a disappointing comedy (given the track record of the comedic stars) about a successful salesman (Kevin Hart) who loses his job and is forced to attend night school so he can finally get his GED and find another job. Naturally he attends a school headed up by his high school nemesis-turned-principal and a tough-with-a-heart of gold …

Weekend Box Office: Aquaman Washes Away Competition as 2018 Ends Strong

Chris Kavan - wrote on 12/30/18 at 08:22 PM CT

Aquaman had little competition and easily topped its second weekend in row. It was another good sign for DC as their cinematic universe continues to look better after a rough start. Mary Poppins Returns and Bumblebee also held strong while Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse hit a major milestone and Clint Eastwood likewise had reason to celebrate. Neither Vice nor Holmes & Watson were able to …

New in Theaters December 28: Holmes and Watson, Vice

Chris Kavan - wrote on 12/27/18 at 06:42 AM CT

After the long Christmas holiday, December is closing on a more quiet note. Granted, both of these movies were actually released on Christmas Day, so they have been playing for most of the week already. That is the Sherlock Holmes comedy the reunites Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly and the awards-season friendly Vice, which finds Christian Bale transforming into the commander but not-in-chief …

Christmas Weekend Box Office: Aquaman Dominates, Mary Poppins, Bumblebee Strong, Marwen Bombs

Chris Kavan - wrote on 12/26/18 at 07:24 PM CT

It was a long Christmas box office, thanks to the holiday landing on a Tuesday and there was little surprise that Aquaman dominated both the weekend and Christmas period. Settling for runner-up status, both Mary Poppins Returns and Bumblebee couldn't compete with the might of Atlantis, but both had respectable, if somewhat lower-than-expected totals. Second Act played well among women, but …

Happy Holidays
Because it's Christmas, there's only two releases of note this Tuesday:

"White Boy Rick" (2017), starring Matthew McConaughey, Richie Merritt, Bel Powley, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Rory Cochrane, Eddie Marsan, Bruce Dern and Piper Laurie. Set in 1980s Detroit at the height of the crack epidemic and the War on Drugs, the film is based on the moving true story of a blue-collar …

New in Theaters Dec. 21: Aquaman, Bumblebee, Mary Poppins Returns, Second Act, Welcome to Marwen

Chris Kavan - wrote on 12/20/18 at 07:13 AM CT

WIth a big 'ol holiday time frame ahead of us (as in Christmas and New Years), Hollywood is gearing up for what it going to be a jam-packed finale for 2018. We've already had some big films, but this week brings us a whole avalanche of new and expanding films. Aquaman, which has already conquered the international box office, looks to to the same on the domestic front. Mary Poppins Returns looks …

Arctic Justice, Penguins and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 12/19/18 at 06:55 PM CT

This is the last bulletin of the year, people, so get your party hats on and let's go wild! Okay, not too wild, because the final two movies worthy of talking about are both clearly in the family category. We have another Disneynature offering, this time taking on the dapper black-and-white Antarctic birds and, speaking of cold-weather fun, the other film is an animated arctic tale about taking …
