‘Coco’ Heading for Third Consecutive U.S. Box Office Victory

‘Coco’ Heading for Third Consecutive U.S. Box Office Victory
Disney-Pixar’s animated comedy “Coco” is heading for a third straight winning weekend at the North American box office during what’s expected to be a moderate frame.

For the second weekend in a row, major studios have opted to rely on holdovers during the session instead of offering any wide openings. Disney-Lucasfilm’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is expected to dominate when it opens on Dec. 15.

The weekend will see one wide opening as Broad Green Pictures launches its last movie with the action-comedy “Just Getting Started” debuting in 2,146 locations. The film, starring Morgan Freeman, Tommy Lee Jones, and Rene Russo, is tracking to gross around $5 million this weekend. Also starring are Jane Seymour, George Wallace, Joe Pantoliano, Glenne Headly, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Graham Beckel, and Elizabeth Ashley.

Broad Green announced in August that it was closing down production after three years of mostly disappointing box office performance. Its first major release,

Thor: Ragnarok crosses $800 million at the worldwide box office

Despite competition on the superhero front from Justice League, Marvel StudiosThor: Ragnarok has reached another box office milestone this week, passing $800 million globally and helping Walt Disney Studios to cross $5 billion worldwide for the third consecutive year (and with Star Wars: The Last Jedi still to come!).

Arrowverse 'Crisis on Earth-x' Crossover vs. Justice League: Which DC Team-Up Was Most Super?

Arrowverse 'Crisis on Earth-x' Crossover vs. Justice League: Which DC Team-Up Was Most Super?
This November played host to a pair of DC superhero team-ups — the big screen’s Justice League and TV’s Arrowverse crossover. Which proved to be most super?

Justice League of course is a massive franchise film that cost a reported $300 million to make, and runs 120 minutes. The CW’s “Crisis on Earth-x” event meanwhile spanned about 160 total minutes across four episodes and cost… a whole lot less. (In general, an hour-long TV drama on the high side carries a $5 million price tag. And keep in mind, this is The CW.)

Watch Luke Skywalker and Chewbacca Reunite in Theaters This Weekend

Watch Luke Skywalker and Chewbacca Reunite in Theaters This Weekend
New footage of Star Wars: The Last Jedi is being shown before the Pixar movie Coco, during the Noovie preshow, and it features a reunion between Chewbacca and Luke Skywalker. Yes, you read that correctly, the wookie and the Jedi, chilling out on Ahch-To along with Rey. Disney and Lucasfilm are on the promotional rampage, premiering a slew of new footage over the last few weeks. Just recently, we were able to see Chewie do something many have wanted him to do for the last 6 months: Punch a Porg.

Although the reunion sounds like it's all fun and games, it's actually not. Luke Skywalker is apparently pretty grumpy and still pretty mad about the whole Kylo Ren betrayal deal. Rey and Chewbacca approach Luke in this sneak peek, asking him to return and help the Resistance. Luke says, "You think I came to the most unfindable place in the galaxy to be disturbed?

‘Justice League’ Box Office Explained: What Happened?

Warner Bros.’ highly anticipated comics adaptation Justice League finally hit theaters this past weekend, and there’s no way around it: the film is a box office disappointment. The superhero team-up pulled in $94 million on opening weekend (adjusted down today from yesterday's estimates of $96 million), the lowest bow yet for a Dceu film and well below expectations (it was pegged at $110 million last week). But you may be asking, how is almost $100 million a disappointment? It only made $7 million less than Wonder Woman, and that movie is considered a smashing success. Won’t …

Leaked Justice League Deleted Scenes Show Iris West and More Cyborg

Over the weekend, we heard that most of the deleted scenes from Justice League featured Cyborg's backstory. We get to see what that looked like now in some leaked footage that is making its way across the internet. These deleted scenes, some of which haven't been completed, also give us a look at the Keirsey Clemons cameo that was axed from the movie.

The original runtime for Justice League was said to be nearly three hours. When Joss Whedon stepped into replace director Zack Snyder, that runtime was shaved down to exactly one hour and forty-nine minutes minus credits and post-credit scenes. That means over an hour of the movie is sitting unfinished in a Warner Bros. vault in Burbank. Now, some of the missing footage has popped up, and it gives us a better idea about Zack Snyder's original vision.

Justice League was supposed to be the Dceu's most important movie,

DC Extended Universe Movies Ranked from Worst to Best

Last weekend saw the release of Justice League, which brings the total of films in the DC Extended Universe (Dceu) to five. While that may seem like too few to rank, keep in mind that if Warner Bros. keeps on pace with production, that number will grow. The Dceu has had a rough start, but keep in mind that the McU didn’t have a smooth liftoff. Iron Man was fantastic, but then they had to figure out The Incredible Hulk and Iron Man 2. The Dceu has generated its fair share of controversy, but to its credit, it’s …

Movie Review – Justice League (2017)

Justice League, 2017.

Directed by Zack Snyder.

Starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Ciarán Hinds, Diane Lane, Amber Heard, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Billy Crudup, J.K. Simmons, and Jeremy Irons.

Synopsis:

Inspired by Superman’s heroic sacrifice, Batman and Wonder Woman assemble a team of heroes to tackle the demonic Steppenwolf.

Lots of big films have troubled productions, but few go through such publicised woes as DC’s latest. Zack Snyder, director of the Dceu’s first two instalments, left the project while it was in its final stages due to a family tragedy, and Joss Whedon was promptly roped in to handle reshoots and to oversee post-production. This was met with mixed reactions from the fanbase ? some were excited because Whedon had managed to craft successful and entertaining ensemble pieces with The Avengers and (to a lesser extent) Avengers: Age of Ultron,

8 Interesting Ways That Justice League Sets Up Future Dceu Movies

Much was made in the run-up to Justice League that it would echo recent comics and offer something of a rebirth for the DC Extended Universe, moving the franchise away from the dour tones of Man of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and morphing it into a brighter, more optimistic future.

But what could the future of the Dceu consist of? Well, Justice League bears a lot of that on its back. By the end of the film, all six Leaguers have been moved into new positions on the board which could be picked up in later outings. Likewise, elements of much wider mythologies such as the New Gods mythos and the Green Lantern Corps are only briefly touched on here, ready to be picked up later down the road.

Granted, Justice League hasn’t been the barnstorming success that Warner Bros. were hoping for, and its
