'Batman v Superman' Wins Weekend #2 at the Box Office with $52.3M

3 April 2016 2:44 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When most movies open with huge box office numbers on their opening weekend, they typically drop a significant amount in their second weekend. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was no different in its second frame in theaters, dipping a massive 68.4% but still remaining atop the box office with $52.3 million, according to the estimates from Box Office Mojo. There were only two new releases opening in theaters, God's Not Dead 2 and Meet the Blacks, but neither came close to surpassing Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Last weekend, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice surpassed its own expectations, taking in $166 million domestically and $424 million worldwide, the best global debut for any superhero movie in history. Still, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice didn't fare well with critics. The superhero movie continues to drop on Rotten Tomatoes, currently standing at a 28% Rotten rating, but the audience score is still overwhelmingly positive, »

Movie Review – Meet the Blacks (2016)

1 April 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Meet the Blacks, 2016.

Directed by Deon Taylor.

Starring Mike Epps, Zulay Henao, Alex Henderson, Bresha Webb, Paul Mooney, Lil Duval, Charlie Murphy, Andrew Bachelor, Lavell Crawford, Gary Owen, Perez Hilton, Mike Tyson, and George Lopez.

Synopsis:

As Carl Black gets the opportunity to move his family out of Chicago in hope of a better life, their arrival in Beverly Hills is timed with that city’s annual purge, where all crime is legal for twelve hours.

Whenever one begins to pick apart The Purge‘s world where crime is at an all-time low thanks to the titular event where all illegal activities are free game for one night, it admittedly does become a load of nonsense that crumbles logically and thematically. With that said, the movie does actually make for great material to spoof. The problem is that we live in a generation where parodies often result in some of the laziest, »

Can 'Batman v Superman' Win Its Second Weekend at the Box Office?

29 March 2016 11:19 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, Deadpool set the pace for all superhero movies this year, setting box office records with a $132.4 million opening weekend, en route to becoming the highest grossing R-rated movie of all time. Last weekend, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice surpassed its own expectations, taking in $166 million domestically and $424 million worldwide, the best global debut for any superhero movie in history. With the superhero movie's second weekend approaching, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will have no trouble staying in the top spot, since the only two newcomers God's Not Dead 2 and Meet the Blacks don't stand a chance at unseating this superhero movie, according to the projections at Pro.BoxOffice.com.

It's always tricky trying to predict the second weekend of a blockbuster like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, especially since it didn't fare well with critics. The superhero movie continues to drop on Rotten Tomatoes, »
