The Brothers Warner announced to a packed Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con that their next superhero film would be one seeing a face-off between the two most popular characters in the history of the genre.

Despicable Me 2 looks probable to pick up a repeat victory this weekend, making it four in a row for animation after Monsters University's two-peat. You can't stop the children or their parents who buy tickets!

The first effort dropped just under 42 percent, that's called "word-of-mouth" but I like this one to slip 47 percent, to a number around $44.2 million. When you're talking new releases, the topic on everyone's mind is Pacific Rim. The Brothers Warner have done a few brilliant things (frontloading the Rt reviews with positives) and a few not so clever things (releasing a trailer filled with only loud noises). Is this Battlehship all over againc Starship Troopersc The tracking is miserable (see that number below) so I can't bring myself to go too much higher. »
