Can Madea's Boo 2 Kill Off Happy Death Day at the Box Office?

Can Madea's Boo 2 Kill Off Happy Death Day at the Box Office?
After earning more than five times its budget on opening weekend, the Blumhouse thriller Happy Death Day will have plenty of competition in its second frame, with the year's most crowded field to date, five new movies opening in wide release. Among the newcomers are Lionsgate's comedy sequel Boo 2! a Madea Halloween, Warner Bros.' disaster thriller Geostorm, Sony's biopic Only the Brave, Universal's The Snowman and PureFlix's Same Kind of Different As Me. We're projecting that writer-director-star Tyler Perry's sequel Boo 2 will follow in its predecessor's footsteps by taking the top box office spot in a crowded field, with $24.6 million.

The third frame in October has traditionally become the most crowded weekend of the year, which started in 2015, when four new movies hit theaters, The Last Witch Hunter, Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, Rock the Kasbah and Jem and the Holograms, although only the first two movies were

Death of major ‘Robotech’ character to end first comic arc!

A major character will be killed off in Titan’s new Robotech series, Harmony Gold USA and Titan Comics announced today, paving the way for a stunning new arc penned by fan favorite writer Brian Wood (Dmz, Briggs Land) and legendary Transformers scribe Simon Furman.

The critically acclaimed and sell-out comic series, which launched in August, takes into account every iteration of the Robotech series, and casts a fresh eye over classic characters from the iconic ‘80s sci-fi anime.

Now, the series (written by Brian Wood with art by Marco Turini) is set to scale new heights with a dramatic first season climax that will change the face of Robotech forever… including the death of a major member of the team! But will it be Rick Hunter, Lisa Hayes, Lynn Minmei, Roy Fokker, Claudia Grant or Henry Gloval who pays the ultimate price?

All will be revealed in Robotech #4 (on

Director Steve Mitchell talks in depth about his new film King Cohen: The Wild World of Filmmaker Larry Cohen

Jason Souza chats with director Steve Mitchell on his latest film King Cohen: The Wild World of Filmmaker Larry Cohen

Steve Mitchell loves storytelling, and is a fan of all things film. He created the 80’s-slash-blast of a movie Chopping Mall, has written for numerous TV shows like Viper and the animated series Jem, and has produced DVD documentary extras for Never Say Never Again and Casino Royale. As an artist and media chronicler, it stands to reason that his directorial debut is about another renaissance man, Larry Cohen. King Cohen: The Wild World of Filmmaker Larry Cohen, is a documentary chronicling the work and character of an artist who’s never compromised, the man who wrote and directed influential blaxploitation films like Hail Caesar, 70’s creepers It’s Alive and God Told Me To, 80’s consumerist critique horror The Stuff, and more recently the writer of thrillers like Phone Booth and Captivity.

DreamWorks & Blumhouse to team for animated film, Spooky Jack

  • JoBlo
The foundation on which the Blumhouse empire is built was made by scaring the hell out of audiences with grizzly horror features, intense thrillers and Jem And The Holograms. Now the studio is ready to prove it’s not all about terrifying the innocent, and that they actually have a soft side too, by teaming up with DreamWorks Animation for a new animated film.

Joe Corallo: Amazing Grace

Okay, let me clear up a couple of things first.

One: This is not about the song “Amazing Grace” by poet John Newton. It’s about comic book professional Sina Grace.

Two: I shamelessly took the concept of this column title from Christmas at Pee Wee’s Playhouse when Globey says that in reference to Grace Jones’ performance of Little Drummer Boy.

Now then, if you aren’t familiar with Sina Grace I’m here to help change that. Especially since Sina has a few new comics hitting the shelves on Wednesday.

He’s someone entirely unique in comics. He’s worn nearly every hat you can in comics as a self-publisher, imprint editor, writer, and artist. His skills have graced most of the comics publishers here in the States that you can name, he’s edited The Walking Dead, put out deeply personal memoir comics, and is most recently

Cast This: He-Man (Masters of the Universe)

  • JoBlo
Over the past decade, Hollywood nostalgia for famous properties from the 1980s has given us (among other things) a seemingly endless live-action Transformers franchise, a trio of Smurfs movies, a couple of big-screen G.I. Joe missions and one Jem And The Holograms. But one guy who can't seem to get a break is He-Man. In the thirty years since shirtless Dolph Lundgren battled skull-faced Frank Langella in...

7 Classic Anime That Hollywood Should Remake After ‘Ghost in the Shell’ (And One That They Really Need to Leave Alone)

7 Classic Anime That Hollywood Should Remake After ‘Ghost in the Shell’ (And One That They Really Need to Leave Alone)
It was always only a matter of time until modern Hollywood resigned itself to remaking anime. Which isn’t to suggest that the uniquely Japanese medium is somehow unworthy of being used as fodder for Western blockbusters — on the contrary, anime has provided some of the most progressive, adventurous, and visionary filmmaking of the last 30 years — but rather to acknowledge the palpable whiff of inevitability with which Paramount is releasing “Ghost in the Shell.”

It’s not like studio executives are obsessive fans of the franchise, it’s not like former Paramount CEO Brad Grey bought every new DVD of “Stand Alone Complex” as it was released in the United States and can walk you through every detail of the Laughing Man case, it’s not like the people in power were just patiently waiting for the entertainment climate to warm up to the idea of a star-studded Major Kusanagi

Riverdale: the long, strange history of Archie Comics on TV

Chris Cummins Jan 24, 2017

A look-back at the previous attempts to bring Archie to TV before they got it right with Riverdale...

When Riverdale premieres on the CW on January 26th, it will mark a milestone for Archie Comics - the first time in the company's 75-year history that its characters will truly shine on television. A mix of gleefully ridiculous kitsch with standout performances and some truly smart writing, the series is poised to be 2017's breakout TV hit.

That said, it took a while for Archie to get to this point. There have been many attempts to bring Archie and his friends to TV before, but these all suffered for either being shoddily animated (the various 1960s cartoons), misguided (1990's Archie: To Riverdale and Back Again), or just plain, um, weird (the X-Files cash-in Archie's Weird Mysteries

Preview of Mega Princess #1

Writer Kelly Thompson (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Pink, Jem and the Holograms) and Nickelodeon’s Brianne Drouhard launch their new five-issue series Mega Princess this Wednesday, and we’ve got a preview of the issue for you here…

The ultimate princess is here from writer Kelly Thompson (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Pink, Jem and the Holograms) and Nickelodeon’s Brianne Drouhard!

During Princess Maxine’s 10th birthday, her fairy godmother grants her the gifts of Every fairy tale princess, which…sounds a lot cooler than it actually is, in Max’s opinion. She doesn’t want to sing on key or feel a pea under 20 mattresses—she wants to be a detective!

At least the power to talk to animals is cool, but her pony Justine is downright saucy. They don’t get along.

When her little brother, Prince Robert VI (better known as Baby Bobs), goes missing,

Marc Alan Fishman: Danger – Driving While Plotting!

  • Comicmix
I often receive puzzled looks when I tell folks that Unshaven Comics makes the trek from the southern burbs of Chicago to the New York Comic Con by car. I reassure them that if we could afford to ship an entire booth setup and merchandise to the Javits, convince ComicMix’s own Glenn Hauman to pick us up from La Guardia (a hell I wouldn’t wish on anyone, let alone our most gracious host), and then be beholden to said Haumans for most of our transportation needs, we would. But, rest assured, we’ve made the trip enough for me to admit I actually look forward to the nearly 14-hour jaunt across Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.

In those middle-hours of driving, somewhere between lunch and arriving in New York, we found ourselves unpacking The Samurnauts as a concept. You ever want a first-class ride on the creative-process express?

Teresa Giudice Turns Heads in Sparkly Pink Power Jumpsuit -- See the Pic!

Teresa Giudice Turns Heads in Sparkly Pink Power Jumpsuit -- See the Pic!
Scene stealer, indeed!

Teresa Giudice seemed to be feeling sassy at Star magazine's "Scene Stealers" event at the Kola House in New York City on Tuesday.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star hit the red carpet in a pale pink sequined jumpsuit with sharp shoulders that was equal parts Jem and the Holograms, J.Lo, and disco ball.

Barbie may have also been an influence, as every bit of Giudice's look was pink, including her smoky eye, lipstick, nails and pointy pumps, though there was some sparkly silver jewelry thrown in for good measure. She completed the look with a high ponytail, which helped put the focus on her curve-hugging ensemble.

Mighty Morphin Tweens Defend The Earth In The First Trailer For ‘Power Rangers’

It’s never quite clear how cartoon nostalgia is going to land. For every “Transformers” there’s an underwhelming “G.I. Joe” or worse, a “Jem & The Holograms” (people seem to like “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” enough to justify some sequels, I guess). So how will Lionsgate’s “Power Rangers” perform next year?

Yoga Hosers Review

Thanks to my surprisingly contrarian adoration of Kevin Smith (amongst critics, at least), I sat down for Yoga Hosers filled with curious excitement. One Kevin Smith movie packs more personality than some filmmakers produce over an entire career, and his daddy-daughter feature teased bizarre delicacies beyond Earthly words.

Alas, my take on Smith’s Canadian zero-to-hero nightmare aligns with most other negative views, but it’s still an admirably passionate project that I salute the renegade director for tackling. Smith takes tremendous creative risks every time he pens a script, and sometimes they become Clerks, or Tusk, or Zack And Miri Make A Porno, while other times they’re Yoga Hosers. It’s a numbers game, really.

So – regrettably – let’s get to the not fun part.

Yoga Hosers is a hollow genre mashup that can be best described as Buzzfeed meets Jem And The Holograms meets a neat-enough podcast discussion.

Max Steel: first international trailer

Ryan Lambie Aug 23, 2016

Mattel action figure and superhero Max Steel gets his first feature film this year. Here's the first trailer to prove it...

If such disparate movies as Robosapien, Battleship and Jem And The Holograms have anything in common, it's that they all prove that not every movie based on a toy or board game can be a roaring success like Michael Bay's Transformers franchise. Bay's robot action movies may be bullet-proof when it comes to reviews, but audiences don't always turn out in huge numbers to see a film based on a familiar name. 

This might explain why, following a development period which began way back in 2009, the marketing for Max Steel feels rather apologetic. Based on Mattel's 90s line of action figures, the movie's an origin story about Max McGrath (Ben Winchell), a young man with extraordinary powers of speed and strength.
