New in Theaters June 07: Dark Phoenix, The Secret Life of Pets 2

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/06/19 at 11:40 AM CT

Another week, another blockbuster - well, maybe two this time. Godzilla: King of the Monsters ruled over last weekend, but his roar was a bit weaker than expected, thus I have a feeling his reign over the box office is going to be short-lived. Two big films are going to sucker punch the big guy: the final film in the current generation of X-Men films and a sequel to a well-received animated …

Annabelle Comes Home, Stuber, Ready or Not and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/05/19 at 01:40 PM CT

Thankfully we aren't going to have a repeat of the dreadful nothing we all had to endure during the Memorial Day update. There are three big movies getting their ratings due - a nice, round number. We have a new horror addition to the Conjuring franchise, a different kind of horror film that will prove doubly so for newlyweds and an action/comedy that combines Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani - …

Weekend Box Office: Godzilla Is King, Rocketman Soars, Ma Impresses

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/03/19 at 01:06 AM CT

It was mixed to good news for all the new releases over the weekend. While Godzilla: King of the Monsters took the box office crown, it's opening was lower than anticipated and it will have to get a helping hand on the international front to save face. On the other hand, both Rocketman and Ma opened better than expected, both finding a place in the top five. Overall, the weekend helped push the …

New in Theaters May 31: Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Rocketman, Ma

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/30/19 at 11:41 AM CT

With summer coming in full speed ahead and with Avengers: Endgame running down, it's time to look out for the next big blockbuster. Sure, Aladdin has been pretty magical and John Wick has been strong, but we want bigger! And who is bigger than Godzilla? That's right - everyone's favorite atomic-era nightmare returns, along with a few friends, to spice up the weekend. Elton John gets his own …

A Moment of Silence for the Memorial Day MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/29/19 at 10:26 PM CT

Silence is golden - this week's update is not. Once again, I have nothing worthy to talk about - no wide releases, not even any limited releases. We have a handful of documentaries and some even more under-the-radar films that will likely never the light of day outside of art house theaters or the bottom of your streaming queue. In any case, that leaves me with little more than another list to …

New on DVD and Blu-Ray Week of May 28 - June 03

Harley Lond - wrote on 05/29/19 at 02:59 AM CT

In "Greta," Frances (ChloĆ« Grace Moretz), a sweet, naive young woman trying to make it on her own in New York City, doesn't think twice about returning the handbag she finds on the subway to its rightful owner. That owner is Greta (Isabelle Huppert), an eccentric French piano teacher with a love for classical music and aching loneliness. Having recently lost her mother, …

Memorial Weekend Box Office: Aladdin a Wish Come True, Brightburn, Booksmart Open As Expected

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/27/19 at 04:29 PM CT

It might not have been A Whole New World for Disney as Aladdin topped the Memorial Day Weekend box office in impressive fashion. While Disney has been missing rather than hitting with their live-action offerings of late, Aladdin, despite some early trepidation from fans, was a big hit and will probably make the studio happy about the future, including The Lion King, Maleficent 2 and Cruella. Not …

New in Theaters May 24: Aladdin, Brightburn, Booksmart

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/23/19 at 11:45 AM CT

With Avengers: Endgame finally having to take a backseat - with John Wick: Chapter 3 finally toppling the heroes - will this week bring about a new winner or fail to match up to the competition? Disney is coming out swinging with their live-action Aladdin remake, with Will Smith, Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott leading the charge. We also get the anti-hero origin story in Brightburn as well as what …

MIB International, Crawl, Blinded By the Light and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/22/19 at 02:45 PM CT

Oh man, this is the kind of update that makes me happy. A nice, long list and a well-rounded three new major films earning their ratings. This time around we join the Men in Black once again, for an overseas adventure we get the next man vs. nature horror film and we get a coming-of-age tale set across the pond but rooted in the music of Bruce Springsteen. Overall, not complaints from me this …
