Now, before you go through this list, I always take these with… read more

It appears that the young adult film curse may have finally been broken. Young adult novel adaptations have been hit and miss at the box office, but it seems that Divergent has finally broken the curse set forth by the likes of City of Bones, Beautiful Creatures and The Vampire Academy. It took in $56… read more

It seems that animated films are very much back in style at the box office. I’ll be the first to admit I didn’t expect Mr. Peabody & Sherman to do much at the box office due to the age of the property, but here it sits at the top this week in its second week… read more

I can admit when I get a prediction wrong, and this week’s number one is an example of me not predicting the audience reaction correctly. 300: Rise of an Empire took in a healthy $45 million domestic and $132.85 million globally off of a $110 million dollar budget.

300: Rise of an Empire, the sequel to the extremely popular 300, released a new trailer today that still leaves me wondering why this needed to exist. I will never grasp why the original 300 did so well. It was fun to look at, but the film had too many extraneous things going on as… read more

Yes, the world really needed a sequel to 300. No, we really didn’t, but we got one any way. 300: Rise of an Empire will tell the story of the naval battle that ran concurrent with the events of the first 300 film. Although Zack Snyder isn’t directing this time around, it’s apparent that the… read more
