New in Theaters November 27: Knives Out, Queen & Slim

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/27/19 at 11:24 PM CT

With Thanksgiving falling smack dab in the middle of the week, Hollywood isn't wasting any time, getting the two new wide released a Wednesday opening. But despite the one-two punch of Rian Johnson's star-studded whodunnit and a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde featuring Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith on the run - Frozen II should have no problem dominating the Thanksgiving holiday timeframe - …

A Big Ol' Nothingburger from the MPAA Ratings Board

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/27/19 at 09:43 AM CT

It's too early to be feeling the effects of tryptophan, ratings board! Whatever the case, while there are plenty of movies with ratings to celebrate, a big fat zero of them are wide releases. So it's another case of feast or famine and this week it's famine - well, in terms of ratings, in terms of food, it's Thanksgiving! Eat up, people and then go watch football and take a nice, long nap or …

Weekend Box Office: Frozen II Ices Competition in Big Opening

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/24/19 at 09:49 PM CT

It was about time the box office had a hit and, wouldn't you know it, once again we can thank Disney. Frozen II easily topped the box office, and it didn't just perform well domestically, it can claim a record internationally as well. The win for the animated sequel meant there wasn't much left to go around, thus A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood and 21 Bridges had to settle for much more …

New in Theaters November 22: Frozen II, 21 Bridges, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/20/19 at 09:32 PM CT

After a string of disappointing sequels that have failed to ignite the box office, the streak should come to an end as Disney's monster hit Frozen is getting a sequel - one that could very much rival the first film in terms of opening. But that's not all as Tom Hanks seems primed for some awards-season love playing Fred Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood - which is getting even better …

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

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/13/19 at 11:04 PM CT

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 …
