X-Men: Days of Future Past was a risk, but right now Fox has got to feel pretty good about the whole thing as they've taken the top spot this Memorial day weekend, and will easily clear a hundred million tomorrow. But as this is Fox's second most expensive film ever, it's going to need to play big internationally. The good news: It has.

It's Memorial Day weekend, which means school is almost out and summer actually begins (no matter what Hollywood would lead you to believe), and now there's a new X-Men movie from original series director Bryan Singer. The film looks to be a huge hit, and should open big over the weekend, though the director is unlikely to throw a party to celebrate.

Box Office Roundup: 'Godzilla' is King

Godzilla seems to have come at the right time, as audiences hungry for summer entertainment gave it more business in its opening weekend than they did The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in its opening weekend. That's huge, and it's no surprise sequel talk is already happening.

Box Office Predictions: 'Godzilla' Gets a Weekend to Stomp

Well, this summer has been a little unpredictable so far, but it looks like Godzilla will definitely dominate this weekend. The question is if it can do over $150 Million domestic, and what the international numbers are like. As this summer's shown, getting to a $60-$70 Million (or even $90 Million) is no guarantee of over $150-$200 Million.

Box Office Roundup: 'Neighbors' Soars, 'Spider-Man' Crashes

The Seth Rogen/Zac Efron vehicle Neighbors had the potential to blow up, but Universal and many thought the film would open in the mid-$30 Million range at best.  Yeah, that was a low estimate, the film made over fifty million this weekend. Also, in a suprise to no one paying attention, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 collapsed this weekend.

Today brings The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to the big screen, and though the film has been trashed by much of the geek community, it's on track to open to huge numbers. Sony, infinite in their wisdom, are already plotting two spin-offs and at least two more sequels, but though star Andrew Garfield has said that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will be his...

There is an argument to be made that critics often give the first films of summer a pass. It's partly because they're ginormous studio productions, and it used to be that coverage and/or advertising could be hurt by panning their latest blockbuster. But also there's often a sense of a soft pass, films that aren't particularly great (at least in the critic's eyes) but also not worth going hard...

Movie Review: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 follows Peter Parker's journey as the consequences of being a vigilante begin to catch up with him. For the second entry in this (somehwat forced) new Spider-series, there's a lot of pieces that are meant to set up future adventures, which leaves the experience of watching this film frustrating, though the film has its moments.

Summer Movie Preview 2014: Superheroes, Comic Books And Sequels

Summer wouldn't be complete without superheroes, comic book adaptations and sequels. All three go hand-in-hand, especially because many of this summer's superhero films are sequels like The Amazing Spider-Man 2, X-Men: Days of Future Past and Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. Then there are other sequels that aren't necessarily based on comic books like Michael...

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is scheduled to kick off the summer in a little over two weeks, and the film is definitely in the final stretches of it's marketing campaign.

'Sinister Six': Drew Goddard To Direct

We’ve been pretty lukewarm about Sony’s plan for an expanded Spider-Man film universe that includes a Sinister Six villain team-up film, mostly because The Amazing Spider-Man was as mediocre as could be, and Sony’s desperate, flopsweat-drenched marketing campaign for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 doesn’t inspire much hope, either.  Plus, it’s a...

We’ve known for some time that Sony is chomping at the bit for something close to Marvel Films’ multi-movie, universe-filling franchise, and that they planned on doing so by actually making a series of villain movies—as the colorful Spider-Man rogues gallery is just about all they have the rights to.  We’ve also known that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 would likely be launching...
