Weekly Box Office Work-Up

Another weekend has come and gone which means it is now time to examine the weekend box office receipts for the top five performers.

Lower-than-average week-to-week drops was the main theme at the box office this weekend. It was yet another crazy rich weekend at the box office for Warner Bros' romantic comedy Crazy Rich Asians. The book-to-film adaptation dropped just 5.7% in its second frame, bringing in an impressive $25 million. To put that into perspective, the average … Continue reading Weekly Box Office Work-Up

Weekly Box Office Work-Up

August is an infamously slow month at the box office. Last August in fact was the worst August in 20 years. The story is a bit different this year, however. This weekend was the third in a row to top its equating weekend from last August. It's also the second weekend in a row that … Continue reading Weekly Box Office Work-Up

Weekly Box Office Work-Up

By Jordan Peterson | @thefilmmajor "An oldie but a goodie." The phrase applies both to the long-running Mission: Impossible film franchise as well as its seemingly ageless star, Tom Cruise. At 56 years young not only is Cruise now five years older than Wilford Brimley was in Cocoon (a movie about old people), but he's … Continue reading Weekly Box Office Work-Up

Weekly Box Office Work-Up (Sep. 22-24)

No one wants to be defeated, but it looks like someone just beat IT (see what I did there?). That's right, the highly-anticipated sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle (you can check out my video review here) saddled the number one spot at the box office this weekend, dethroning New Line's IT after two-weeks. Domestically, the comic book-adapted … Continue reading Weekly Box Office Work-Up (Sep. 22-24)

The 5 Best, Most Complex Villains in the MCU

Thus far, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a super-sized success, both financially and critically. Still, that hasn't deterred the passionate online community from ragging on Kevin Feige and company for the undercooked depictions of their big screen baddies (collectively dubbing the issue "Marvel's Villain Problem"). While evil-doing duds like Dormammu and Malekith (you're looking him up, aren't you?) leave much to be desired, Marvel … Continue reading The 5 Best, Most Complex Villains in the MCU

Weekly Box Office Work-Up: Apr. 21-23

It was a disappointing weekend at the box office for new releases, of which there were five. None of them managed to crack the top five. Born in China, the latest Disneynature documentary, came the closest at number six with $4.7 million. In fact, this week's top five performers are the same top five from last … Continue reading Weekly Box Office Work-Up: Apr. 21-23

Weekly Box Office Work-Up: Mar. 31- Apr. 2

There's a new boss at the box office. In its opening weekend, DreamWorks' The Boss Baby came out on top with $49 million, despite filling a diaper critically (you can check out our written review here or our video review here). Its shocking success could be due to the current lack of family programming. The animated … Continue reading Weekly Box Office Work-Up: Mar. 31- Apr. 2
