Booksmart, Poms, Downton Abbey, John Wick 3 and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/17/19 at 02:46 PM CT

A very impressive MPAA Ratings Bulletin this week - with a lot to talk about. Seriously, it's like a trickle here and there and then suddenly they open the floodgates - but I guess more it better than nothing. There is a lot to cover - John Wick is back for a third round, a proper British series gets a proper film treatment, a female twist on Superbad, an older female twist on Bring It On and an …

Weekend Box Office: Shazam! Wins Second Weekend as Little Tops Hellboy

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/15/19 at 12:40 AM CT

It was another heroic weekend as Shazam! didn't have much trouble taking the box office crown the for the second straight weekend. However, it was also a pretty non-heroic weekend, as the Hellboy reboot opened to scathing critical reviews and didn't fare much better with audiences, coming in third behind the comedy Little. After managed to slightly over perform in a front-loaded weekend while …

New in Theaters April 12: Hellboy, Little, Missing Link, After

With Shazam! and Pet Sematary powering the box office last weekend, is there room for some more decent openings? Hellboy sure hopes so, as the new rebooted version looks to be the best bet for weekend numbers. Also looking to make a splash is the comedy Little, Laika's new animated offering Missing Link and teen romance After. While I don't think this weekend is going to offer nearly as many …

Avengers: Endgams, Long Shot, Aladdin and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Oh man, what an update from the MPAA Ratings Board this week! It might not be the biggest list of all time, but quality matters and there are some big films. The biggest of the big films is, of course, Avengers: Endgame, which looks to cap off the MCU in grand fashion (and with a potential record-breaking opening) but the heroes are joined by another Disney friend, that would the live-action …

Weekend Box Office: Shazam! and Pet Sematary Offer Potent One-Two Punch

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/08/19 at 05:31 AM CT

It was a win-win all around as Shazam! and Pet Sematary opened in the number one and two spots at the box office. The Best of Enemies came in a bit below expectations, landing just outside the top five. The superhero and super horror films both opened within expectations and got April off to a solid start, though Avengers: Endgame is going to be the biggest game in town and should launch the …

New in Theaters April 05: Shazam!, Pet Sematary, The Best of Enemies

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/04/19 at 11:42 AM CT

FYI, Captain Marvel just passed $1 billion, just in time to welcome a new (DC) hero to the big screen. Shazam!, which has been getting great reviews on its own, looks to give DC their next big boost - but it better be quick, because it doesn't have long until Avengers: Endgame is going to dominate everything. Along with dueling superheroes, we also have dueling horror as Jordan Peele's Us …

UglyDolls, Brightburn, A Dog's Journey, Bad Trip and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/03/19 at 03:04 PM CT

Another pretty good update from the MPAA Ratings Board this week. Four, count 'em, four major releases all getting their approved ratings. The lineup includes an animated film about embracing your uniqueness, yet another dog-gone film, an anti-super man origin story and something about a road trip combined with the time-honored tradition of pranking people. An interesting lineup with something …

"Vice": Despite a luke-warm reception, this expose of Dick Cheney -- and Washington power politics -- is amazing to behold. If you want to know who runs this country and, by extension, the world, this film is a must. Cheney was an unassuming bureaucratic Washington insider who quietly wielded immense power, first in the corporate world and then as Secretary of Defense to …
