The Huntsman: Winter's War MovieSpoon.com

Revenues for the 99 percent computer-generated Jon Favreau retelling of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book fell by more than 40 percent from the previous weekend, but that didn’t prevent the film, which is still being shown in 4,028 theaters, from maintaining its number one spot on the domestic revenue list. The Jungle Book had some weak competition in the form of …

Box Office: ‘The Boss’ Takes Over #1 Spot

The Boss Melissa McCarthy MovieSpoon.com

Melissa McCarthy comedy The Boss topped the domestic charts over the weekend, dropping the blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice out of its number one spot after a two-weekend run. The Boss is testament to McCarthy’s draw at the box office, given the movie was thrashed by critics. The movie is mostly misguided, as it’s full of frat boy humor, but the intended …

Weak Competition Gives ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ Another #1 Weekend

Batman v Superman Miracles From Heaven MovieSpoon.com

The one-two punch of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was given little competition this week at U.S. theaters, leaving the poorly-reviewed superhero blockbuster safely and predictably on top of the Rentrak revenue list. In its first weekend out of the box, the star-studded feature took in more than $400 million. By the end of its second weekend, numbers were …

Let’s Be Clear – Batman Is A Cheat And A Scallywag!

Batman v Superman

Batman – let’s just make this as clear as possible – is a cheat and a scalawag and, well, too sleazy (and too smart) to go to battle with his colleague Superman without a little kryptonite in his pocket. The idea here was to write a bit about who might have been the victor in the thunder-battle between the Caped …

‘Man Up’: Pegg And Bell Heat Up Theaters In A Dorky Romance

Man Up

This year’s sleeper, no pun intended, turns out to be the British romantic comedy Man Up, which Variety called a pleasant trip down memory lane — at least for those waiting for a follow up to the second “Bridget Jones” film. I’m not particularly champing at the bit waiting for the third “Bridget Jones” comedy. I was hoping for better …

Review: Gerard Butler And ‘London Has Fallen’ On Fast Track To RedBox

London Has Fallen

London Has Fallen, the new Gerard Butler thriller, is a disaster movie plain and simple. It’s a movie with US president on the run, hundreds of stereotyped terrorists and little to no interesting dialogue – but who needs dialogue? Didn’t we just say it’s a disaster movie? Isn’t that what RedBox is for? I mean, why pay $14 to see London Has …
