Doctor Strange

Did you know Oscars are being handed out next week? If you didn’t already know that, you would be able to figure that out, as there are five major Oscar nominees on this week’s list. Two of those, Jackie and Moana, are VOD releases, so that limits the choices for Pick of the Week. In fact, only Manchester by the Sea was a contender for Pick of the Week. Unfortunately for that film, I got to the review for Doctor Strange a week early and I’m awarding it the Pick of the Week this week. It is out on VOD right now, but I would wait a week for the Blu-ray Combo Pack. More...

Featured Blu-ray and DVD Review: Doctor Strange

February 20th, 2017


Doctor Strange was the first time that magic was really strongly introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and some thought the film was a bit of a risk as a result. Instead, the film became the second biggest introductory film in the MCU, behind only Guardians of the Galaxy. Is it as good as its box office numbers would suggest? Or has the MCU become self-sustaining generating hundreds of million of dollars regardless of quality? More...

Weekend Estimates: Lego Batman Pieces Together Second Weekend Win

February 19th, 2017

The Lego Batman Movie

The Lego Batman Movie will secure another weekend at the top of the box office chart thanks to a modest 35% drop from its opening, and soft openings for all the new wide releases. The animated adventure will make $34.2 million over three days, and is expected to earn about $45 million when the President’s Day holiday numbers are added in. It will pass $100 million at the domestic box office tomorrow. More...

Friday Estimates: Batman Beats Up Competition with $7.6 million

February 18th, 2017

The Lego Batman Movie

It is a disappointing weekend for new releases, as only The Great Wall managed to match low expectations. This left The Lego Batman Movie cruising to first place on Friday with $7.6 million. It is on pace for $42 million over the four-day weekend and will crack $100 million sometime on Monday, which matches our predictions almost perfectly. If the film can make $150 million domestically and $200 million internationally, then it will break even before it reaches the home market. More...

Limited and VOD Releases: Everybody Loves Some Limited Releases

Everybody Loves Somebody

While there are not a lot of films on this week’s list, there is still a wide selection of limited releases. Most of these films are earning overall positive reviews, if not overwhelmingly positive reviews. Two of these films are aimed at Hispanics, Everybody Loves Somebody and You’re Killing Me Susana, and they could do well in theaters. More...

Theater Counts: Great Wall, Fist Fight Barely Challenge Lego Batman

February 17th, 2017

The Great Wall

The Lego Batman Movie will remain the dominant force in theaters this weekend, according to studio theater counts announced on Thursday. The Great Wall will debut in 3,326 locations, and Fist Fight opens in 3,185. Both are solid numbers, but nowhere near the 4,088 theaters occupied by last week’s winner at the box office. Fifty Shades Darker also remains a big player, with a 3,715 theater count this weekend. More...

Thursday Night Previews: Wall’s Start is Far from Great with just $970,000

February 17th, 2017

The Great Wall

The first numbers for the weekend are in and they are not looking good. The Great Wall earned just $970,000 during its midnight previews, which is significantly less than half of what John Wick: Chapter Two managed just last weekend. Granted, John Wick: Chapter Two was a sequel and those tend to get off to faster starts, while The Great Wall has a Holiday to help boost its legs. On the other hand, The Great Wall’s reviews are much, much worse. We were only predicting just under $19 million during the four-day weekend. We are keeping that for now, but we might have to adjust it lower tomorrow. More...
