When Disney announced its $71.3 billion acquisition of 20th Century Fox, X-Men was among the film properties that had executives at the Magic Kingdom frothing at the mouth. The historic merger meant that the Fox-owned band of mutant superheroes could reunite with its comic-book brethren in Disney's Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was the kind of […]
After some pretty punishing reviews, Godzilla – and his mostrous cohorts Rodan, Ghidorah and Mothra – have fallen short of expectations at the US box office.
"Godzilla: King of the Monsters" didn't have a roar quite as deafening as its franchise predecessors. The third entry in Warner Bros. and Legendary's MonsterVerse opened with a middling $49 million at the domestic box office, a start well below 2014’s “Godzilla” ($93 million) and 2017’s “Kong: Skull Island” ($61 million). Like its series brethren, […]
James Cameron has continued a long-held Hollywood tradition by congratulating Marvel Studios for its box office success with Avengers: Endgame.

"Dumbo" nabbed the top spot at the domestic box office last weekend, but Disney's latest re-imagining didn't fly as high as expected. Despite the cast of Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito, and Michael Keaton, the nearly eight-decade old property showed that not every remake is guaranteed to pack a major punch. Tim Burton's live-action reboot of […]

Heading into the weekend, Warner Bros. expected everything would be awesome. Instead, executives on the Burbank lot are feeling a pain not unlike the sharp sting you suffer from stepping on a tiny plastic toy. The studio's animated sequel "The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part" fell short of expectations, earning $34.4 million when it […]
"The Kid Who Would Be King" isn't exactly ruling over the box office. Fox's family friendly adventure is looking like one of the year's first big-budget flops after the $60 million movie debuted last weekend with a disastrous $7 million from 3,521 theaters. It's only January, but "The Kid Who Would Be King" also marks […]
