Box Office: Here "Mamma Mia!" goes again, to #2 on the charts

by Nathaniel R

In a surprising turn of events Mamma Mia! 2 couldn't inch past Equalizer 2 despite a much higher-grossing preceding film. The absence of Meryl versus the presence of Denzel musta tipped it because it was super close with a 34/35 million battle! Much closer than last time around when Mamma Mia! faced off with The Dark Knight on its own opening weekend back in 2008 for a 27/158 million opening weekend.

In limited release theaters were packed for two new films, the fashion doc McQueen, and the new police brutality drama Blindspotting, while A24's deeply felt and delightfully awkward Eighth Grade had a great second weekend.  What did you see this weekend?

6 Moments From The Dark Knight That Prove It’s The Greatest Of All-Time

Ten years. It’s been 10 years since Christopher Nolan erased the stigma that comic book movies are strictly for kids with the release of The Dark Knight. His nuanced Batman crime drama – which also served as a subliminal tribute to Michael Mann’s Heat – defied all expectations as it became the new standard bearer for superhero affairs. Plus, it helped that it was a bloody good movie, regardless of its genre or assumed target audience.

Gary Oldman, who portrayed Jim Gordon, told Coming Soon how The Dark Knight could’ve terribly gone off course if it weren’t for Nolan’s vision and guidance.

“In the hands of a less talented director, I think, you might watch this and think there’s too much going on. It’s overloaded. Lots of plot. Two bad guys. There’s the Chechnyans, the mob, the Lao, the money, The Joker – who doesn’t

Book-a-Day 2018 #202: Saga of the Swamp Thing by Alan Moore and various artists (6 volumes)

  • Comicmix
I wouldn’t say that all of modern mainstream comics comes from Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing. Frank Miller’s work on Daredevil and The Dark Knight was just as influential, alongside the Claremont X-Men and the event frenzy kick-started by the Wolfman/Perez Crisis. And there have certainly been major developments in the thirty years since then. But our modern adventure-story comics world was formed in those days of the mid-80s when the Direct Market was strong and growing, when the outside world was reading “comics are growing up” stories every few months (with new examples each time), and the expectations of both readers and publishers started to bend to shocking revelations and long story arcs and Worlds That Would Never Be the Same. And that world was strongly molded by Alan Moore, starting with Swamp Thing in late 1983.

Thirty-plus years later, those Moore stories are both shockingly

Why So Serious, You Ask? The Dark Knight Is Returning to Theaters For Its 10th Anniversary!
It's been 10 years since The Dark Knight, aka the Batman movie of all Batman movies, was released and changed the game for superhero films. In honor of the film's big 1-0, Warner Bros. will rerelease it exclusively in four select IMAX theaters. That's right: for one week beginning Friday, Aug. 24, you'll get to see Heath Ledger's Joker and Christian Bale's Bruce Wayne battle it out in all their IMAX glory. Tickets officially go on sale July 20 for the select IMAX locations: AMC Citywalk in Universal City, CA, AMC Lincoln Square in New York, AMC Metreon in San Francisco, and the Ontario Place Cinesphere in Toronto.

Though The Dark Knight was the sequel to Christopher Nolan's 2005 Batman Begins, it's arguably the landmark film in his Dark Knight Trilogy. The Dark Knight took Nolan's story of Bruce Wayne to a whole new level by pitting him against a seemingly

‘Mamma Mia,’ ‘Equalizer’ Sequels Beat Box Office Expectations

‘Mamma Mia,’ ‘Equalizer’ Sequels Beat Box Office Expectations
Two new mid-budget sequels — Universal’s “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” and Sony’s “The Equalizer 2,” are on pace to beat expectations at the box office, with “Mamma Mia!” topping the charts with an estimated $39 million opening from 3,317 screens.

That opening tops the $27 million start for the first “Mamma Mia!,” even after inflation adjustment. The first film opened against “The Dark Knight” in 2008, yet still went on to have huge legs at the box office with $144 million domestic and $609 million worldwide, holding the record for the highest-grossing female directed film of all-time until “Wonder Woman” topped it last year. The sequel is performing better with critics with a 78 percent Rt score, while a mostly female audience gave it an A- on CinemaScore.

In second place is “Equalizer 2” with an estimated opening of $34 million from 3,388 screens.

Rumour: Joker movie plot details reveal The Joker’s real name, and a surprising connection to Bruce Wayne?

Since being officially announced earlier this month, Todd Phillips’s Joker origin movie appears to be coming together very quickly. We’ve had confirmation of Joaquin Phoenix’s casting as the Clown Prince of Crime, Deadpool 2 star Zazie Beetz in talks for the female lead, and an October 2019 release date set in stone.

It’s possible that we’ll get some additional news later today during Warner Bros. and DC Films’ San Diego Comic-Con panel, but in the meantime we’ve got some rumoured plot details courtesy of That Hashtag Show, which reveal the Joker’s real name – and a potential connection to Bruce Wayne.

According to the site, Phoenix will portray Arthur Fleck, who returns back home to live with his ageing – and perhaps dying – mother Penny, who was “very attractive in her youth” and “obsessed with her former employer.” Here he’ll also meet single mother Sophie

5 Reasons Why I Hate The New Titans Trailer!

Up until this point, I was hoping that everything that I have seen for the upcoming DC Universe series Titans was all a joke. Unfortunately for all of us, it is real and it looks stupid. Here are the 5 reasons why the new Titans trailer sucks.

1) Brenton Thwaites, the actor who plays Robin, just doesn’t do it for me. The guy is a decent actor. To me, he looks like one of those idiots from The Dark Knight running around trying to be Batman when clearly they are not. He is running around trying to be Robin when clearly he is just constipated. I am not a fan.

2) Starfire’s costume design is ridiculous. On a positive note, I love the costume design of Raven and Beastboy. Don’t get me wrong, I like the choice of Anna Diop for the role. I just think they made her look like a 1970’s groupie.

‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’ Dances to $3.4 Million at Thursday Box Office

‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’ Dances to $3.4 Million at Thursday Box Office
“Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” danced to $3.4 million at the Thursday box office, while Sony’s “The Equalizer 2” took in $3.1 million at the previews.

In 2008, the original “Mamma Mia!” earned a modest $27 million opening weekend while serving as counter-programming to “The Dark Knight,” which opened the same weekend. (The adaptation of a London and Broadway stage hit eventually earned nearly $610 million worldwide on a $52 million budget.)

Independent trackers are expecting that “Here We Go Again” will improve on the opening of the original “Mamma Mia!,” projecting an opening of $32-34 million from 3,200 locations while carrying a higher production budget of $74 million.

‘Titans’: DC Universe’s Brutal, Nsfw Trailer Says “F— Batman”

It’s interesting to go from a week where everyone is watching Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight” on its 10 year anniversary and considering the long shadow of its legacy while DC Films and DC Entertainment are still pumping out new products, “Aquaman,” the upcoming “Teen Titans Go,” etc. etc.

But one of the most glaring takeaways from watching “The Dark Knight” and the full ‘Dark Knight,’ trilogy is despite the films being a huge influence on movies and culture, nearly every movie that came in its wake missed the point and only borrowed, begged and stole just the superficial elements of “dark and gritty,” often creating quote-unquote “grounded” films with zero substance and free of the moral muddiness and ethical dilemmas of “The Dark Knight.”

Case in point and perhaps no better example: the new trailer from DC’s upcoming new streaming service “Titans,” an adaptation of the long-running
