DVD and Blu-ray Picks for October 16 - 22

Published by

Bruce Willis and Edward Norton in Moonrise Kingdom
This is a good week for animation on Blu-ray. You get one of the summer’s better animated titles and some classic Looney Tunes action. You also get one of the year’s best films and one of the best shows on television, along with some pretty bad summer movies. It’s good week for home video, all things.

Box Office Predictions: Summarizin' The Summer

Published by

Johnny Depp in Dark Shadows
Though there are three wide releases this weekend, who cares? Summer's over. Labor Day weekend is here. So let's talk about the winners of the summer, and general trends. Cause that's fun. And you'll never guess who won the summer (Hint: it was The Avengers)

Box Office Predictions: How 'Magic' is 'Mike'?

Published by

Magic Mike
So, this weekend would look to be the quiet before the storm. Next week is dominated by Spider-Man (Amazing or not), then comes the Ice Age, and then a little film called The Dark Knight Rises. But Warner Brothers has smartly targeted women for Magic Mike, and it went from little awareness...

Box Office Roundup: 'Brave' Takes the Top

Published by

Brave
Though Brave may not have had the critical consensus of Pixar films in the past - films that often have nearly 100% Rotten Tomato ratings - that wasn't going to keep parents and children from one of the best brands in the business. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter didn't pass the sniff test, but may be okay as a smaller gamble. Check out the...

Box Office Predictions: It's Still a Pixar Movie

Published by

Brave

Box Office Predictions: It's the 80's All Over Again

Published by

Tom Cruise in Rock of Ages
Between Rock of Ages and That's My Boy, we've got a weekend of films that seem to use nostalgia as their main draw. "Hey remember when Adam Sandler would swear?" "Hey remember hair metal?" Then again, those of us who remember may not want to go back.

Box Office Predictions: Aliens and Animals Slug For Top Slot

This is a strangely busy weekend for June. For the most part studios launch their biggest titles in May and July, while June and August don't normally hold the big powerhouses. But this weekend we've got a big prequel and sequel hitting screens, and at least one of them has an X-factor that means it could do much better than expected, or much worse (that is,...

To the Point: Summer Box Office Predictions

Published by

Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle in The Dark Knight Rises
The summer season is a week away at this point, so it's time to start making predictions about the biggest movies of the summer. These predictions are always going to be a just little off, but that's the fun of making wildly inaccurate guesses months before we've even seen a film - sometimes you're right. So here are the top ten films that are going to be trying to make more than $200 Million...

Is it ever too early to start thinking Oscar season?
