The film looks to be a mix of Missions past and present, with Sean Harris returning…

‘Mission Impossible: Fallout’ Will Smash The Summer Slump

Today Parmount debuted the official trailer for Mission Impossible: Fallout starring Tom Cruise and Henry Cavill, and to sum it up, it is truly awesome. I have to say this does look like the best film/the culmination of the franchise, and the two trailers have had a slightly darker tone, giving it the gritty tone that of John…

‘Deadpool 2’ To Dethrone ‘Infinity War’ With $140M+ Opening

This weekend we will see Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War finally be dethroned at the top of the box office after three weeks of ruling. Replacing Thanos at the top spot is…well… Thanos, but this time as Cable in the highly anticipated Deadpool 2.  Looking to take the top spot is Deadpool 2, the highly awesome sequel starring Josh Brolin and Ryan…

‘Infinity War’ Can Hit $2BN; But It’s Down To China

With $1.6BN in just sixteen days, Avengers: Infinity War has become the fifth highest grossing film of all time already, and the highest grossing film ever in the MCU. There are only a few question Infinity War has left to answer in the box office, and one of them is whether it can cross $2BN worldwide. As the biggest…

‘Infinity War’ Heading For $62M Third Weekend

Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is currently going to drop 47%in its third weekend to take a great $61M third weekend. This pushes its domestic gross close to $550M, and worldwide thanks to China we’re looking at a worldwide cume north of $1.55BN, possibly hitting $1.6BN when the actual figures come in. Taking the top spot is Infinity War for…

‘Infinity War’ Heading For $200M+ Opening Weekend In China? – 400th Post

FRIDAY AFTERNOON UPDATE: Avengers: Infinity War is off to a great start in China, taking a $71M Friday. This is currently +/-$4M (depending on FX) off The Fate Of The Furious. The Fast and Furious films play to a wider demographic in China than the MCU flicks, and word-of-mouth is allegedly decent without being stupendous. We could still see a $200 million+ weekend…

‘Jurassic World 2’ Is Now The Underdog Of Summer 2018

Avengers: Infinity War is a hit. No Question. It could hit $2BN worldwide if China is huge. Deadpool 2 is tracking for a $150M opening weekend, Solo is at a $175M four-day, and I believe it is impossible for all of the blockbusters to be huge successes. Now my magnifying glass turns to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.  The previous film, Jurassic World, opening…

‘Infinity War’ To Hit $1.5BN This Weekend

This weekend will mark the final day of Avengers: Infinity War‘s rule of the box office. After three weekends (including the upcoming one) the Marvel epic will have to settle for second place behind Fox’s release of Deadpool 2. That doesn’t mean that Infinity War won’t make a lot after the release of Fox’s answer to The…

Downey & Law Go Up Against Avatar 11 Years After First Battle

Warner Brothers announced yesterday that the long-awaited Sherlock Holmes 3 will be released on December 25, 2020. Presuming nothing has changed since the last update on this long-gestating project, Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law will return as Holmes and Watson while Guy Ritchie will again direct. The Sherlock Holmes franchise in my opinion is one that isn’t…

Kodachrome: Surprisingly Touching Road-Trip Picture – ★★★☆☆

When it comes to Netflix original films, it’s always difficult to sift through the crap to find a decent one, and luckily last night I found one. Kodachrome is based on an article wrote in the NY Times in 2010. It talked about the worldwide rush on Dwayne’s Photo in Parsons, Kansas, which became the world’s last processor…

‘Infinity War’ Takes $113M Second Weekend

Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War has dropped a bit bigger than I was hoping, at a 56.1% drop, but that still acumes to a $113M second weekend, ahead of Black Panther’s $111.1M to be the second best second weekend of all time. Estimates were putting the Thanos epic at $120M, but estimates can be wrong. This pushes its North American…
