As of right now there has been no MPAA Ratings Bulletin updated for this week - I will update the blog if one comes out. The MPAA Bulletin has been updated - but with no new wide releases, it is once again just a pretty list.

That being said while the weekend brought a double dose of new wide released it was Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness that came out on top for the …

The Gray Man and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/18/22 at 11:26 AM CT

With a light ratings update and little surprise at the box office, it's not the most compelling update of all time but here we are. Doctor Strange had no trouble holding on to the top spot at the box office. The main new wide release, Firestarter, was a dud with critics and audiences and the semi-wide Family Camp didn't have wide appeal apart from its faith-based crowd.

Coming into this …

Finally we have a busy week from the MPAA board as the past few weeks have been a barren wasteland of quality content. Three new films to talk about and it's a family-fest combined with a hefty biopic. On the box office side of things, Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness had no competition and easily took the top spot - as well as the biggest opening of 2022.

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/04/22 at 10:37 AM CT

While last week at least provided some fireworks in the box office department, this week is a double punch of exceedingly low returns coupled with another big ol' goose egg from the ratings bulletin. The top five remained (almost) unchanged while, yet again, there are not new wide releases to speak of - leading to what is sure to be one of the shortest updates this year.
