Bombshell and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/19/19 at 09:37 PM CT

Not too much excitement in this week's bulletin. I guess the ratings board much be gearing up for Thanksgiving - or Black Friday - or both - as there is but a single wide release film getting its ratings due. That would be Bombshell - a film that helps define the MeToo movement as it follows the story of former Fox News head Roger Ailes and the toxic environment he fostered while running the …

Weekend Box Office: Ford v Ferrari Revs Up for Big Win; Charlie's Angels Are Grounded

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/17/19 at 10:04 PM CT

The box office continues to serve up surprises, both in the good news and bad news department. The good news is that Ford v Ferrari opened up bigger than expected and, in doing so, becomes one of the first true Oscar contenders of the season. It was also good news for Joker, which finally topped the $1 billion mark worldwide. On the flip side, the continuation of Charlie's Angels was a …

New in Theaters November 15: Charlie's Angels, Ford v Ferrari, The Good Liar

It seems November has not been able to shake off the sequel curse that has befallen so many films this year. Without Joker, it would be an outright underwhelming fall season indeed. There should be a few films that will top $100 million - but even that mark might not be enough to make the latest films any more impressive. This week brings a trio of new films - a reboot (again) of Charlie's …

With a title like "Good Boys" you know you're in for some bad-boy action. Three sixth-grade boys ditch school and embark on an epic journey while carrying accidentally stolen drugs, being hunted by teenage girls, and trying to make their way home in time for a long-awaited party where, hopefully, they'll get their first kisses.

The Gentlemen, Black Christmas, Beautiful Day, Richard Jewell in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/12/19 at 07:22 PM CT

A rather short list this week from the MPAA Ratings Board, but it's filled with some big movies to talk about. You have a biopic about the kindest soul ever to grace public access TV played by the most reliable actor of his generation, a new spin on holiday horror, a true crime tale about making judgement before the facts set in and an ensemble piece about a very British drug empire. All in all, …

Weekend Box Office: Midway Blows Up, Doctor Sleep Takes a Nap, Fire Burns Christmas

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/10/19 at 07:13 PM CT

It was an interesting weekend all around as Midway exceeded expectations to top the box office while, on the opposite side of things, Doctor Sleep came well under expectations and had to settle for second. In the other battle of newcomers, Playing with Fire topped Last Christmas. Terminator: Dark Fate cratered in its second weekend following a disappointing opening, while Joker continued to show …

New in Theaters November 08: Doctor Sleep, Midway, Playing With Fire, Last Christmas

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/06/19 at 11:19 PM CT

While Terminator: Dark Fate may have topped the box office, it was still more of a whimper than a roar. That means the door is wide open for the four new films debuting this weekend and it seems like the front-runner will be Doctor Sleep - the latest Stephen King adaptation that serves as a sequel to The Shining - both the book and film versions. Otherwise, we have a holiday romance, a …

Jumanji: The Next Level, 21 Bridges and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/05/19 at 07:17 PM CT

A slight improvement over last week's... slight update - we have a duo of new wide releases receiving some ratings love. Up front is a sequel to a surprisingly big update to a beloved 90s films - Jumanji, where it looks like our friends are going back to the video game setting - with some new (old) characters along for the ride. Otherwise, we have an action-packed (non-MCU) film for Chadwick …
