Secret Life of Pets Beats Ghostbusters at the Box Office

17 July 2016 1:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Heading into this weekend at the box office, it was expected to be a very close race between last weekend's winner The Secret Life of Pets and Sony Pictures' Ghostbusters reboot. As it turned out, both movies came in a bit under their weekend projections, but it still remained a close race, with The Secret Life of Pets coming out on top with $50.5 million in its second weekend in theaters. Ghostbusters wasn't too far behind, though, with a solid opening weekend of $46 million.

We were predicting that Secret Life of Pets will drop 40%, which would would put its second weekend total at $62.5 million, since most animated movies don't drop as much as other summer blockbusters. Box Office Mojo reports that The Secret Life of Pets dropped 51.5% with a healthy $11,541 per-screen average. This animated comedy has now taken in an impressive $203.1 million domestically and another $50.8 million internationally for a worldwide total of $253.9 million. »

Will Ghostbusters Win Big or Crash and Burn at the Box Office?

12 July 2016 9:51 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After a lackluster 4th of July holiday at the box office, Universal's animated comedy The Secret Life of Pets breathed new life into the sagging summer season last weekend with a whopping $104.3 million. This surprise hit will face two newcomers this Friday, Sony's Ghostbusters reboot and Broad Green Pictures' The Infiltrator, starring Bryan Cranston. If our predictions are accurate, it should be a close call at the box office, with Ghostbusters just barely beating out The Secret Life of Pets with $64 million.

Animated films don't normally suffer huge drops like many summer blockbusters, so we're predicting that Secret Life of Pets will drop 40%, which would would put its second weekend total at $62.5 million. Of course, with the top two so close together, it could very well turn out the other way around, with The Secret Life of Pets repeating atop the box office, so we'll have to wait and see. »

Secret Life of Pets Wins the Box Office with $103.1M

10 July 2016 1:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The 4th of July holiday weekend didn't provided the usual fireworks at the box office, with Pixar's Finding Dory winning for a third weekend in a row with $41.8 million over the three-day frame, and $51.4 million over the four-day holiday. The animated holdover won for its third straight weekend in a row, taking down three newcomers, Disney's The Bfg, Warner Bros.' The Legend of Tarzan and Universal's The Purge: Election Year. This weekend, a different animated movie took th top spot, with Universal's The Secret Life of Pets scoring big with $103.1 million.

Universal and Illumination Entertainment's Secret Life of Pets was also a hit with critics this weekend, earning a solid 76% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Box Office Mojo reports that this animated comedy took in a whopping $23,609 per-screen average from 4,370 theaters. That rollout is the fifth widest of all time, behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (4,375), Iron Man 2 »

She made the transition to more adult roles with the unforgettable “Lost in Translation” (2003), opposite Bill Murray, and further stole the screen in the Woody Allen-directed “Match Point »

Black Widow Is Scarlett Johansson's Favorite Role of All-Time

8 July 2016 2:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Scarlett Johansson has had a long, excellent career, having spent 20 years in the business as an actress. She still has an awful long way to go too, because she is only 31 years-old and is one of the most in-demand names in the business. That is in large part thanks to her work as Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As it turns out, she appreciates the role more than anything else in her career.

Speaking with Michigan Avenue, Scarlett Johansson was asked what her favorite role of all-time was. She did admit that it was difficult to decide, but ultimately she landed on her role as one of the core members of The Avengers in the McU. Here is what she had to say.

"I really like playing Natasha; playing the Black Widow. It's been an interesting journey, to take a character and grow it over these years, »

Scarlett Johansson Makes History, Is Highest Grossing Actress Ever

30 June 2016 7:10 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The list of the highest grossing actors of all-time has long been a male-dominated field thanks to the likes of Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Downey Jr., Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp and more, but the beautiful and badass Scarlett Johansson is here to finally break up the boys’ club. According to Box Office Mojo’s running list, Scarlett Johansson has entered the Top 10 with a total gross of $3.3 billion and counting, coming in ahead of Gary Oldman, Robin Williams and Bruce Willis.

Johansson’s role as Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has no doubt helped propel her into the top 10. The actress has played the character in five Marvel blockbusters, beginning with her first appearance as Black Widow in 2010’s “Iron Man 2” and most recently in this summer’s “Captain America: Civil War.” Other »

What DC/Warner Bros has Gotten Right Before Marvel Has

27 June 2016 1:17 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Over the past three months DC/WB has seen a plethora of critics put every decision under a microscope and dissect everything wrong with the Dceu.  From the tone of Man of Steel, the appointment of Zach Snyder as the lead of Dceu, the casting of Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot as Batman and Wonder Woman, the interpretation of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and the decision and style of Doomsday.  I am probably missing some more critiques that are out there but you all understand my point that there is plenty that Warner Bros., Zach Snyder, and DC have to fix before Justice League.  With all of those issues there is one that DC and Warner Bros. got right and did so before Marvel and that would be the incorporation of strong female leads in the Dceu.

Sony’s Spider-Man Expanded Universe May Include Silver Sable Movie

24 June 2016 2:35 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sony’s Spider-Man movie universe received a boost yesterday when chairman Tom Rothman confirmed that the studio still plans to push forward with some of those long-rumored webslinger spinoffs. Sinister Six and Venom were two projects in development years ago that may be back on the table, and according to a new rumor, there’s another fan favorite character earmarked for a solo outing: Silver Sable.

Silver Sable hails from Marvel comics, and as part of Sony’s Spider-Man licensing deal from decades ago, the studio is entitled to use her on the big screen. She’s a spy, mercenary and generally a bit of an antiheroine, so that makes her perfect franchise fodder. After material like Deadpool proved audiences are happy to back an antihero, Silver Sable’s a solid choice for a Spidey spinoff.

Why are the stakes in Marvel movies so low?

21 June 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on the low stakes in Marvel movies…

There are so many things the Marvel movies have done right. They’ve launched a new era of studio blockbusters, faithfully adapted some of their most exciting characters with care, and delivered consistently entertaining feature films that, for the most part, are well worth the price of admission.

Sure, Avengers: Age of Ultron kind of sucked and Iron Man 2 was an unsalvagable mess. But more often than not Marvel Studios delivers entertaining and exciting popcorn fare.

The main criticism Marvel has received over the years is how weak their rogues gallery has been. Most of the films feature fairly unspectacular ‘one and done’ villains who really don’t offer much more than a warm body (or bodies) for our heroes to punch repeatedly. Every once in a while we’re blessed with Tom Hiddleston’s Loki or Daniel Bruhl’s amazing Zemo. »

Marvel Studios Countdown: What Does A Black Widow Solo Movie Look Like?

7 June 2016 9:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

In the wake of Captain America: Civil War, we finally got confirmation that Marvel will be getting around to a solo film for Black Widow. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige told Deadline Hollywood, “I would say certainly the one creatively and emotionally that we are most committing to doing is Black Widow...She’s a lead Avenger and has amazing stories in her own right to tell that we think would be fun to turn into a stand-alone franchise.” That comes as good news to fans who’ve been waiting patiently for the character to take center stage since her film debut in 2010’s Iron Man 2. Saturday Night Live poked some fun at what Black Widow might look like as a feature film, but this was before Feige got serious about plans for the spy. While he references...

Shane Black defends Mandarin twist in Iron Man 3, but feels bad for fans who were disappointed

5 June 2016 5:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The big Mandarin twist in Iron Man 3 certainly upset a number of fans who were excited to see Tony Stark’s nemesis in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, rather than a drunken British actor pretending to be Tony Stark’s nemesis. Speaking to IGN, director Shane Black has defended the creative decision, stating that he has no regrets and would do it again, although he does feel bad for any fans who felt fooled by their interpretation.

“We may have done our job a bit too well in a way because we succeeded in actually having a surprise in the middle of a big summer movie where you normally know virtually everything about it before you go in” states the director. “And when I say we did our job too well it meant some of the fans felt fooled. They felt I think that they’d been led down one »

Has Avengers: Infinity War Part One Been Retitled Avengers 3?

4 June 2016 10:07 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

While promoting Captain America: Civil War, Joe & Anthony Russo confirmed that Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2 would eventually be retitled, citing the need to denote the fact that the two films have very different storylines.  Perhaps they meant they were going to drop the subtitles altogether rather than replace them with something else?  As the various Hollywood trades such as Variety, The Hollywood Reporter and The Wrap reported on the Brie Larson casting news for Captain Marvel, Deadline Hollywood's report had something extra, the fact that the Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 has been retitled Avengers 3.  It's simple but it doesn't convey the same level of excitement that Infinity War does.  But a lack of subtitle certainly didn't prevent Iron Man 2 or Iron Man 3 from cleaning up at the box office.  What do you think of the new title? »

Thor's Hammer Might Steal The Spotlight in 'Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2'

3 June 2016 1:59 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The Marvel cinematic universe has become an Easter egg hunting magnet. Every time you sit down and watch a film, be it Captain America: The Winter Soldier or Iron Man 2, you'll notice several hints and surprises hidden in scenery. Look at Guardians Of The Galaxy, a film that had so many hints to the greater cosmic universe that be. In a scene where the Guardians are introduced to The Collector, a glimpse at Adam Warlock's cocoon in a glass case is seen, and it lets diehard fans now that the character is in the universe, and he's just waiting for the right time to make his presence known. And from what we've seen thus far in the future of the Marvel cinematic universe, the Easter eggs aren't going to stop anytime soon.

And now, a recent post by James Gunn on his Instagram has everybody going into a frenzy. »
