Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Crushes King Arthur at Box Office in Weekend #2

14 May 2017 12:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy 2 kicked off the summer movie season in grand fashion last weekend, with an opening weekend of $145 million, far surpassing the $94.3 million take of the original Guardians of the Galaxy movie. This weekend, these intergalactic superheroes took on two new movies in wide release, Warner Bros. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and 20th Century Fox's Snatched, with Lowriders also managing to crack the top 10 in limited release. Still, none of these newcomers could come close to the superhero ensemble Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which had no trouble repeating with $63 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that this superhero sequel dropped 57% this weekend, playing in 4,347 theaters for a respectable $14,494 per-screen average. The $200 million budgeted movie has now taken in $246.1 million domestically and $630.5 million worldwide. After just two weekends, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 already quite close to surpassing both the domestic ($333.1 million) and worldwide take ($773.3 million) of its predecessor. »

Review: ‘Snatched’ is a Tedious, Low-Energy Action Comedy

13 May 2017 8:23 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

A dim-witted offering released in time for Mother’s Day, Snatched — directed by Jonathan Levine from a script by Katie Dippold — is a low-energy action comedy without much laughter. (You know you’re in trouble when a frequent joke involves misunderstanding “come” for “cum.”) Much of the humor falls painfully flat as Amy Schumer does her usual shtick as Emily, a woman with deep insecurities who enjoys a party or two. Goldie Hawn, who has been absent from the silver screen since 2002’s The Banger Sisters, plays her cat-loving mom Linda. She lives with her mentally challenged son Jeffrey (Ike Barinholtz), a shut-in who makes a living teaching piano lessons. When Emily breaks up with musician boyfriend, she’s stuck with a non-refundable trip to a resort in Ecuador and convinces the adventure-adverse Linda to “come” with her. She mistakes a “welcome” drink given by porters in the hotel lobby with “whale cum, »

“Snatched” teams Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer in a comedic adventure

12 May 2017 2:04 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Ever since the release of Trainwreck established Amy Schumer as a big screen comedy star, it has been a waiting game to find out how she would fair as an A list leading lady, following that hit. Schumer has already conquered the small screen with Inside Amy Schumer, but now she tries cinemas again with Snatched. It’s out today and represents the best option in theaters this week. Keep in mind, it’s not amazing, but it’s solidly entertaining and more than amusing enough to recommend. Plus, Schumer has gotten Goldie Hawn back on screens, which is an absolute delight. If you’re a fan of either, you should be in for a treat. The film is an action comedy that wants to be as much an adventure as it is a laugh riot. Emily Middleton (Schumer) is the complete opposite of her mother Linda Middleton (Hawn). In »
