Chris Kavan - wrote on 08/24/22 at 12:46 PM CT

While the the weekend may not have been the biggest on record, it actually wasn't all doom and gloom thanks to a surprisingly strong (though incredibly front-loaded) opening for the latest Dragon Ball film. Meanwhile, Idris Elba's Beast opened to more a meow than a roar. On the ratings front, the MPAA Board is once again being a bit stingy but something is better than nothing.

While we are …

FROM THE BIG SCREEN

No major theatrical releases on DVD or Blu-ray this week.

THIS WEEK'S BEST BETS:
Possibly the great Luis Bunuel's most underrated film, "The Criminal Life of Archibaldo de la Cruz" (1955 - Mexico) is executed in traditional Bunuel fashion, where macabre meets comedy. The story begins when an overindulged young boy of "privilege" is shown a music box, which is a family …

With summer winding down, so goes the box office and the last gasps of the season are playing out as Bullet Train and a resurgent Top Gun: Maverick topped the weekend while the newcomers had little impact on the bottom line. With just $65.2 million, it was the lowest total box office since February - and things aren't expected to get better from here. The MPAA threw a few bones my way with a …

Here we are at the last gasp of summer movie season and Bullet Train has arrived as the last big summer film. The next two months are going to be extremely painful for the box office with no blockbuster films to speak of - though you can't rule out a surprise along the way - but by all accounts, returns are going to be woefully low after the current crop of films finally run their course. On the …

After Ever Happy and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

As summer winds down, it seems the box office is doing the same as DC League of Super Pets had a decent though not spectacular opening while Jordon Peele's Nope took a 58% spill. While there is one more guaranteed hit coming - the next two months are going to be rough for the box office and we may not get much fireworks until late fall. If the box office is slowing down the MPAA is following …

FROM THE BIG SCREEN

No major theatrical releases on DVD or Blu-ray this week.

THIS WEEK'S BEST BET:
Known for his impressively eclectic filmography and for helping to launch the careers of several young Hollywood stars of the 80s and 90s, Joel Schumacher ("The Lost Boys," "St. Elmo's Fire") tackles the existential question that, at one time or another, haunts us all: what awaits us after …

Emily the Criminal and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 07/27/22 at 05:32 PM CT

Jordon Peele's Nope came out on top of the box office with the best opening for an original film... since the last Jordon Peele film. Both Thor: Love and Thunder and Minions: The Rise of Gru continue to stay strong. On the MPAA side of things, while this week brought one of the largest amount of ratings this year, it was super short on content and I had to stretch to have something to talk …
