Call of the Wild managed a decent debut even in the face of a feisty hedgehog. Family films have been all the rage recently - with action a close second, but one genre that hasn't gotten much love this year is horror. Hopefully that's all about to change because The Invisible Man is here to give us an updated take on a classic horror story that looks both incredibly creepy and quite keeping with …

It's another quiet week for ratings updates with but a single wide release to talk about. At least the new entry looks intriguing - with Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson joining the Saw franchise in a continuation of the series with Spiral. Other than that, however the short list is full of the typical limited and streaming releases, but not other big, bombastic theatrical releases. Oh well, …

As February crawls to an end the big news this weekend is what movie families were going to support as a fast-as-lightning Sonic the Hedgehog found a new competitor in Harrison Ford and a very good boy good CGI doggo in Call of the Wild. It turns out, Sonic just has more gas, though Call of the Wild was no slouch. On the other hand, Brahms: The Boy II continued to trend of middling horror …

It was no race to the top this time around as Sonic the Hedgehog had no problem leaving the competition in its dust. And it did so in record fashion, topping Detective Pikachu to become the biggest opening for a video game adaptation to date. Fantasy Island, despite earning bad review and an equally tepid audience reaction, was still top among newcomers, beating out The Photograph while Will …

New in Theaters February 14: Sonic the Hedgehog, Fantasy Island, The Photograph

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/12/20 at 08:34 PM CT

With Birds of Prey failing to provide the blockbuster spark the year needs, we'll still have to wait a bit longer to see if any films before the summer season can truly breakout. Bad Boys for Life is currently the only big film of 2020, and it is a standout. This weekend, a fast, furry blue hedgehog looks to make an impact. We also have a Valentine's romance along with a horror-centric …
