FROM THE BIG SCREEN:

"Sicario: Day of the Soldado": "The boys are back in town again" in this sequel to 2015's drug drama "Sicario." In the drug war, there are no rules -- and as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border, federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) calls on the mysterious Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro), whose family was murdered by a cartel kingpin, to …

Weekend Box Office: Night School Makes the Grade, Smallfoot Just a Step Behind

Chris Kavan - wrote on 09/30/18 at 11:44 PM CT

While September might not have been the most exciting of months, there was enough excitement to make it the second-largest on record (behind just last year's record run). There was plenty of good news at the box office this weekend as both Night School and Smallfoot debuted to good numbers and Hell Fest, while not as huge, still looks to turn a tidy profit. There was also a record set in limited …

New in Theaters Sept. 28: Smallfoot, Night School, Hell Fest, Little Women

The end of September is proving itself to be somewhat subdued when it comes to new releases. The Predator was a miss and while House with a Clock in Its Walls did well, it couldn't help save an otherwise lackluster weekend. This week brings us a bit more flavor, though I'm not sure it will be enough to revive those fall blahs at the box office. Smallfoot looks to snare families away from Jack …

Ralph Breaks the Internet, Bad Times at the El Royale and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

This week brings us one of the more packed updates in recent MPAA Ratings memory. Yet for all the quantity, the amount of films worth mentioning is still woefully low. Just three main entries this week - one a sequel to one of my personal favorite Pixar films (because I'm a video game nerd), a meetup between shady characters at a rundown hotel and an uplifting tale about a victim of a brutal …

FROM THE BIG SCREEN:
"Solo: A Star Wars Story": Young Han Solo finds adventure when he joins a gang of galactic smugglers, including a 196-year-old Wookie named Chewbacca. Indebted to the gangster Dryden Vos, the crew devises a daring plan to travel to the mining planet Kessel to steal a batch of valuable coaxium. In need of a fast ship, Solo meets Lando Calrissian, the suave owner of the …

Weekend Box Office: House With a Clock in Its Walls Tops Slower Weekend

Chris Kavan - wrote on 09/23/18 at 09:16 PM CT

While this weekend wasn't the worst in 2018, it was low enough to make the top three. Good news is that Jack Black's A House with a Clock in Its Walls did better than expected, but that was countered by the other three wide release films all under performing. Add in the precipitous drop for The Predator, and it was a perfect storm of audience apathy. I'm not sure if things are going to get much …

New in Theaters Sept. 21: The House with a Clock in its Walls, Fahrenheit 11/9, Life Itself

Chris Kavan - wrote on 09/20/18 at 06:44 AM CT

Last week The Predator may have topped the box office, but it was far from a win as it was also the lowest opening weekend for a live-action film premiering in 4000 theaters or more. That isn't exactly a record you want and most of the good news came from the holdovers. This weekend, Eli Roth takes a break from torture porn and cannibalism and gives us a... family film?! Otherwise, Michael Moore …

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of September 18-September 24

FROM THE BIG SCREEN:
"Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom": Some movie franchises can go on forever (we're thinking "Alien" and the Marvel Universe entries), but some should be terminated for being worn out (the "Resident Evil" series). This fifth entry into the "Jurassic" world falls into the latter category. It's time that the park/resort was closed forever; there's just not enough dino juice left …

Venom, Goosebumps 2 and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 09/18/18 at 07:18 PM CT

The update may be a bit shorter this week, but a there is a nice bit of content to talk about. We have a sequel to an enjoyable bit of preteen hijinks featuring a teen-lit legend - even if it seems like it will be a pale shadow of the first film. Otherwise, we have one of the greatest comic-book villains getting his own dark film - though maybe not as dark as some fans were hoping for. That's …

Weekend Box Office: The Predator Wins and Loses in Weak Debut, A Simple Favor Opens Solid

Chris Kavan - wrote on 09/16/18 at 09:20 PM CT

While The Predator topped the box office over the weekend, hold that celebratory glass of champagne. It turns out that you can both win and lose because topping the box office wasn't enough to avoid an ignoble distinction for the bloody sci-fi action film. Meanwhile, A Simple Favor opened with flair while White Boy Rick was more quiet and Unbroken: Path to Redemption could barely crack the top …
