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

Chris Kavan - wrote on 09/27/18 at 06:41 AM CT

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 Bla...

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

Chris Kavan - wrote on 09/26/18 at 09:20 AM CT

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 crim...

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.

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 b...

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 ...

"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 di...

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 two...

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 10...

New in Theaters Sept. 14: The Predator, A Simple Favor, White Boy Rick, Unbroken: Path to Redemption

Chris Kavan - wrote on 09/13/18 at 06:41 AM CT

As The Nun helped scare up a record opening for The Conjuring franchise, The Predator looks to improve upon all the previous films, going way back to 1987, when Arnold Schwarzenegger headlined the proceedings. Otherwise, the box office is going to be filled with a lot of crime as Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively bring A Simple Favor to life while White Boy Rick is a true story about an informant-tu...

Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Serenity, Nutcracker and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 09/12/18 at 09:27 AM CT

Last week presented a landslide of new ratings releases, so much so I'm sure I advanced my impending Carpal Tunnel by at least a few months. This week things are back to normal, but the updates are nice and steady. Up front has to be the Godzilla sequel - that brings us ever closer to mega-monster franchise that will tie into King Kong and maybe Pacific Rim?? In any case, Godzilla, yay! We also h...

There's plenty of great chemistry from the talented actress...

Weekend Box Office: The Nun Conjures Franchise Record, Peppermint Stays on Target

Chris Kavan - wrote on 09/09/18 at 07:04 PM CT

The Nun conquered the box office in record fashion for The Conjuring's burgeoning series of films. It was also a decent debut for Jennifer Garner in Peppermint while Tom Cruise also had reason to celebrate while Crazy Rich Asians continued to deliver. If the fall season continues to deliver hits as big as this, it will be a September to remember and with plenty of high-profile films on the way, I...

New in Theaters Sept. 07: The Nun, Peppermint, God Bless the Broken Road

Chris Kavan - wrote on 09/06/18 at 06:43 AM CT

As summer fades and fall approaches, the movie season tends to wind down a bit. It's that time of year when Oscar bait films are holding off and blockbusters won't appear until closer to the major holidays. That beings said, this weekend may not be too bad. Leading the charge is The Conjuring expanded universe film The Nun - and has already been popular thanks to its "banned" Youtube ad that was ...

Aquaman, Fantastic Beasts, Bohemian Rhapsody, Hell Fest and More in the Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

And here... we... go... BAM! The Ratings Board has my gratitude this week as apparently they have decided to go all out and have offered a smorgasbord of updates. This includes an aquatic DC superhero, more Fantastic Beast (and, hopefully, where to find them), an incredible biopic featuring a singer with a voice fit for a Queen, Michael Moore taking the piss out of Donald Trump, a drug tale that ...

"Hereditary" was a sleeper horror hit this year. When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter's family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited. Making his feature debut, w...

Labor Day Weekend Box Office: Crazy Rich Asians Stays Strong, Operation Finale Tops Searching

Chris Kavan - wrote on 09/03/18 at 05:54 PM CT

Labor Day Weekend is one of the more quiet movie holidays - unlike say, Thanksgiving or Christmas, Labor Day is pretty chill. That being said, there was plenty of reason to celebrate with Crazy Rich Asians and Mission: Impossible - Fallout both reaching major milestones while the new films, while a bit low key, were decent for this otherwise quiet holiday. All in all, not a bad weekend as the sum...
