25 Lowest-Grossing Superhero Movies Ever Made

2018 has been a truly astonishing year for superhero movies. Black Panther, released in February, is at just under $700 million in North America as of this writing. Avengers: Infinity War, which came out at the end of April, is at well over $650 million. They are the #1 and #2 most successful superhero movies of all time. Deadpool 2, also released this year, will surely go over $300 million.

These successes come on the heels of last year's blockbusters Thor: Ragnarok, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Logan, and Wonder Woman, all of which made between $200 million and $400 million. Before them, of course, were many other massive superhero hits. Clearly, audiences love this type of movie, and judging by the fact that they seem to be getting bigger and bigger, that love doesn't appear to be going away anytime soon.

On the flip side, there have also been some pretty big superhero flops.

Dissecting 'I Feel Pretty' and Its Questionable Message of Empowerment

Dissecting 'I Feel Pretty' and Its Questionable Message of Empowerment
[This story contains spoilers for I Feel Pretty]

The following conversation about the Amy Schumer romantic-comedy vehicle I Feel Pretty is a veritable battle of like-minded persuasions waged between Eisner-nominated comics writer Alex de Campi (No MercyJudge Dredd) and The Hollywood Reporter contributor Simon Abrams. In the film, Schumer plays Renee Bennett, an insecure office drone who gains renewed self-confidence after she bruises her brain pan by falling off of an exercise bike at SoulCycle. 

This is the third monthly conversation in which the pair discusses films (check out the previous installment, a spoiler-filled look at Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One, here).

‘Accident Man’ DVD Review

Stars: Scott Adkins, Ray Stevenson, Michael Jai White, Ray Park, Ashley Greene, David Paymer, Nick Moran, Tim Man, Ross O’Hennessy | Written by Scott Adkins, Stu Small | Directed by Jesse V. Johnson

Not all comic-book movies have to be about superheroes… or heroes at all for that matter. Case in point: Accident Man. Originally debuting in a series of comic strips in the 90s UK comic Toxic!, Accident Man was created by Pat Mills and Tony Skinner – two legends of the UK comics scene who, beside this character, penned stories or Judge Dredd and ABC Warriors. In fact Mills is one of creators of 2000Ad, a British institution that has already seen success outside of the comics realm, with numerous video games based on characters within its pages and not one but two Judge Dredd movies!

For those not familiar with the Mills and Skinner creation, Mike Fallon is a hitman,

Scott Adkins On Screen: Five Of His Best Movie Roles

Scott Adkins has been tearing up the screen in Hollywood for well over a decade now. His latest film Accident Man hits DVD and digital download on Monday 16th April, and is an absolute blast – a bit of a corker of a British comic-book movie from Pat Mills (creator of the “Judge Dredd” comic) and Tony Skinner, and well worth seeking out.

Karl Urban As The Batman? Former Dredd Star Chimes In On Casting Rumors

Karl Urban will forever be associated with the brutal, unforgiving world of Judge Dredd. And that’s no bad thing, given those mooted reports of a possible cameo appearance in Rebellion’s upcoming TV revival, Mega-City One.

But what are the chances that Urban will decide to venture into uncharted territory? Like, say, Gotham City? That very question came up in conversation when JoBlo spoke to the actor in anticipation of Bent, a white-knuckle thriller in which he shares the screen with Sofia Vergara and Andy Garcia.

Turns out Karl Urban has never actually considered the possibility of playing the Batman – either for Matt Reeves’ gestating standalone pic or another project entirely – as he wasn’t aware of those casting rumors. Well, we say rumors, when really we mean wishful thinking from a small pocket of the DC fanbase.

Oh, really? Wow. I don’t know. I haven’t really contemplated that.

Karl Urban Confirms That Alex Garland Actually Directed Dredd

I've heard a few times over the years from people that Alex Garland (Ex Machina, Annihilation) was the person who actually directed Dredd, not Pete Travis. Well, in a recent interview with JoBlo, Karl Urban confirmed that this is actually true!

“A huge part of the success of Dredd is in fact due to Alex Garland and what a lot of people don’t realize is that Alex Garland actually directed that movie.”

You may or may not remember the rumors of Pete Travis being removed from the film and barred from the editing room. Well, that apparently actually happened and Garland took over. Dredd was such a great movie, and now we know one of the reasons why. It just wasn't Garland's great script, it was also his directing skills.

Karl went on to say that he's still open to reprising his role on the Judge Dredd series Mega-City One,

Dredd: Karl Urban Still Wants in on Mega City One TV Series

Karl Urban is still eager to reprise the role of Dredd for the forthcoming Judge Dredd: Mega-City One TV series. Judge Dredd is a cop in the post-apocalyptic future and polices the crime polluted metropolis of Mega-City One. The character hails from the pages of British comic 2000 Ad, and Dredd has become a beloved cult figure. Sadly, he hasn’t had much luck trying to crack the big screen.

‘Defective’ VOD Review

Stars: Colin Paradine, Raven Cousens, Ashley Armstrong, Dennis Andres, Jamie Tarantini, Nick Smyth, Ry Barrett, Andrei Preda, Christopher Spaleta, Erin Stuart, Neil Affleck, Diana Goldman | Written and Directed by Reese Eveneshen

Well well, it would seem that someone has been watching a little too much RoboCop (or maybe read too much Judge Dredd?) and decided that they had an idea for a sequel, expanding on the concept of the Ocp and the police state they wanted to bring in with the Ed-209 bots… only no-one would a) let them make a sequel; and b) no-one would give them a budget to make a film anywhere near as good either.

So what do we end up with? Defective. A film that loving lives up to its title.

In the near future, the corporation S.E.A., has implemented North America’s first and only police state. Uniformed, anonymous Preservers of Peace investigate, judge,

Mute Director Duncan Jones Want to Adapt a 2000 Ad Comic Book Series

If Mute director Duncan Jones was going to tackle a comic book movie, he’d love it to based on a character from cult British comic 2000 Ad. The comic began in the late 1970s, with a focus on science-fiction and action stories. 2000 Ad quickly became known for its lurid artwork and dark sense of humor, and over the years it built up an array of great characters, including Rogue Trooper, Strontium Dog, Halo Jones and, of course, Judge Dredd.

Accident Man Trailer Is Full of Nasty 90s-Style Action

Accident Man Trailer Is Full of Nasty 90s-Style Action
Brace yourselves for the utter insanity that is the Accident Man trailer. Deadpool and Logan have kicked the door wide open for Hollywood to explore the idea of R-rated comic book movies in a big way. And, in this case, in kind of a small way. Accident Man isn't going to make its way to the big screen, but that doesn't mean it can't pack a serious R-rated punch. If nothing else, this footage looks absolutely nuts and, though cheesy, pretty impressive for something on a very minimal budget. Dare we say, there are even gentle shades of John Wick in here. After all, this movie was directed by a former stuntman, much like John Wick and John Wick: Chapter Two.

That said, it's hard to expect that Accident Man, which arrives on DVD and Digital platforms on February 6, 2018, will be nearly as pleasantly surprising as John Wick. However, the

Blu-ray Review – Paradise Alley (1978)

Paradise Alley, 1978.

Written and Directed by Sylvester Stallone.

Starring Sylvester Stallone, Lee Canalito, Armand Assante, Anne Archer, Frank McRae, Joe Spinell, Terry Funk, Frank Stallone, and Tom Waits.

Synopsis:

Three brothers in the slums of 1940s New York try to make their fortune by training the youngest sibling to become an underground wrestler.

After the success of Rocky in 1976 Sylvester Stallone was a hot property in Hollywood and was pretty much able to get any passion projects he wanted a green light, which is why between Rocky and Rocky II we got trucking federation drama F.I.S.T. and, more significantly, Paradise Alley. Significant because as well as writing it Stallone also directed it (and in true Little Britain style, also sang the theme tune), which marked his first time behind the camera, setting him up to direct Rocky II the same year, and also because despite sharing many themes and plot threads as Rocky,
