Now that we’ve moved on from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, what is there to look forward to seeing this April? There are at least
25 24 films slated for release in the month of April and here’s the trailer for all of them, ranked by anticipation:
1. The Jungle Book (April 15th)
The original animated version of The Jungle Book had an estimated budget of $4 million. The live action version in 1994 cost $27 million. This bundle of CGI goodness was shot in downtown LA and none of the film was shot on location so even though there’s no released budget information, another increase of 7 times the ’94 budget wouldn’t be surprising.
We’re 25 movies deep into 2016 reviewing all but 3 movies that have made it to 500 screens or more. Sorry Kung Fu Panda 3, Fifty Shades of Black and The Other Side of the Door (which is in the plans to see tonight).
Personally, I’ve never been a fan of ratings for movies. The old thumbs up/down system has always been my favorite. But then what do you do with those movies that fall in the middle? Anyway, let’s avoid going off on a tangent about movie ratings (we’ll save that for another day) and grade the first 25 films of 2016 seen on a scale of 0-5 stars (yes, 0… we’re glaring at you, Norm of the North!)Read More →
We all know January is the worst month for releases but, like the groundhog, the movie industry sometimes doesn’t see it’s shadow and the box office shines bright on some pretty big and sometimes even game changing films. It appears Deadpool is one of those game changers as it dominated for 2 weeks straight at the box office and is shattering records left and right. The question about the success of Deadpool though is, is the movie as good as it’s box office indicates or is it reaping the benefits of great timing. How does Deadpool stack up against the 31 box office kings of February of the last 30 years? Here are all of the box office winners, ranked:Read More →
The architect of a few of my worst nightmares has passed. RIP Wes Craven. The writer or director (or both) of 30 films:Read More →
