FROM THE BIG SCREEN:

"Incredibles 2": In this long-awaited sequel to the very popular "Incredibles" (2004), Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack -- whose super powers …

Weekend Box Office: Bohemian Rhapsody Delivers a Killer Queen, Nutcracker Crumbles in Distant Second

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/04/18 at 07:53 PM CT

You would have to go all the back to February of this year to find another weekend where the top three films were all new films at the box office. This time around Bohemian Rhapsody, Nutcracker and the Four Realms and Nobody's Fool took the top three spots at the box office - though it wasn't good new for all of those films. A Star is Born continued to hold well while Halloween managed to keep a …

New in Theaters November 02: Bohemian Rhapsody, Nobody's Fool, Nutcracker and the Four Realms

Chris Kavan - wrote on 11/01/18 at 06:42 AM CT

Hope you got all the horror out of your system for October, because we're now entering the fall season proper, where more serious fare resides. Case in point - Rami Malek becomes the front-man for Queen, Disney gives us a new twist on a holiday classic and, to lighten things up, Tiffany Haddish gets out of prison only to find herself trying to foil a different nefarious plot. Don't count horror …

Destroyer, The Upside, Girl in the Spider's Web and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/31/18 at 09:54 AM CT

Another solid slate arrives this week as the MPAA Ratings Board gives us a lot of drama this time around. We have Destroyer, featuring another award-caliber performance from Nicole Kidman, The Girl in the Spider's Web attempts to revive an anti-heroine for our modern age and The Upside is a remake of a well-received French drama. That's a well-rounded update, and one I am more than happy to …

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of October 30-October November 5

FROM THE BIG SCREEN:

"The Spy Who Dumped Me": It's been more than a quarter of a century since the brilliant "Thelma and Louise" hit the big screen, and you'd think that Hollywood would get the female-buddy-action-comedy film right after such a great start. But no ... especially not with "The Spy Who Dumped Me," a silly comedy about two 30-year-old best friends in Los Angeles, Audrey (Mila …

Weekend Box Office: Halloween Repeats as October Winds Down in Record Fashion

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/28/18 at 07:36 PM CT

It was no surprise that Halloween took the top spot for the second week in a row as audiences are definitely in the horror spirit. None of the new entries really has much of an impact as Gerard Butler's Hunter Killer barely managed to crack the top five while Indivisible landed well outside the top 10. In other horror news, Suspira, an art-house horror film if there was ever one, managed to snag …

New in Theaters October 26: Hunter Killer, Indivisible

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/25/18 at 06:37 AM CT

While October has rolled to some record territory, it is going to be the hold-overs that drag this Halloween box office. The two newcomers, submarine drama Hunter Killer and inspirational film Indivisible, aren't likely to stir up audiences. Rather, it looks like Halloween, Venom, A Star is Born and even Goosebumps 2 will likely once again rule the roost. It should still be a rather profitable …

Instant Family, The Mule, La Llorona, Eli, Mortal Engines and More in This Week's MPAA Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/24/18 at 10:04 AM CT

The MPAA Ratings Board is really getting into that Halloween spirit as a disproportionate amount of a major ratings are horror-related. This includes both original and remakes on the agenda. But, fear not, for there is also a comedy and a major blockbuster also getting their ratings due and helping to shake things up. All in all, this is a very loaded updated with a lot to talk about, so let's …

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of October 23-October 29

FROM THE BIG SCREEN:

"Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again" is "Mamma Mia!" five years on, based on the songs of Abba. Both a prequel and a sequel, the film tells two stories: present day as Sophie Sheridan (Amanda Seyfried) prepares for the grand reopening of her mother Donna’s (Meryl Streep) hotel and 1979 when young Donna (Lily James) first arrives on the island. Sophie learns about her mother’s …

Weekend Box Office: Halloween Brings in October Gold, Hate U Give Expands Well

Chris Kavan - wrote on 10/21/18 at 08:31 PM CT

No tricks, but plenty of treats as October continued on its record pace as Halloween helped deliver the second-best October weekend on record. Meanwhile, it was good news for The Hate U Give, which not only impressed audiences, but nearly cracked the top five while the final film (allegedly) of actor Robert Redford, The Old Man and the Gun, cracked the top 10. All told, the weekend brought in …
