Another solid ratings bulletin with a couple of heavy-hitters this week while the box office was once again dominated by The Batman while an anime title had a strong opening in second place.

The Batman has faced no serious competition yet and it easily took the top spot at the box office for the third straight weekend. Adding another $36.7 million, The Batman dipped 44.8% but that was still …

It was another big win for The Batman - which came as little surprise because there were not other wide releases over the weekend but there was a new entry in the top five in the form of the world's most popular pop group in BTS, whose live concert film Permission to Dance on Stage - Seoul: Live Viewing cracked the top three as screaming tweens (and probably more than a few adults too) watched …

The box office finally has another blockbuster (no knock to Uncharted) and the MPAA ratings board keeps chugging right along. But the big news was the opening for The Batman the grimdark, Fincher-like superhero was a big hit and looks to make March its own.

What happens when you make Bruce Wayne an emo, the Riddler a serial killer and turn Colin Farrell into an unrecognizable crime boss - oh, …

It was a a slow weekend at the box office and it looks like the MPAA was reciprocating the feeling but at least still provided something to dissect. As expected, the box office remained unchanged for the top five and the two new entries - Foo Fighters horror film Studio 666 and the limited release of Cyrano, had little impact overall. Next week will be a much different story when The Batman …

Fantastic Beasts 2, Father Stu and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/23/22 at 11:17 AM CT

It's another solid entry in the ratings department this week with two more wide releases to contend with. On the box office side of things, Tom Holland proves he doesn't have to be a superhero to top the weekend as Uncharted weathered drab critic reviews and wowed audiences enough to score the biggest opening of 2022. Also scoring decent was Channing Tatum's Dog - which joins the pantheon of …
