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...

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 ...

<b>FROM THE BIG SCREEN:</b> <b>"Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom":</b> 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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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 ...
