Weekend Box Office Nov. 17-19: 'Justice League' tops, but doesn't live up to expectations

Only in Hollywood can a film that grossed a whopping $96 million in a weekend could be considered a disappointment, but that is what we have here with this weekend's No. 1 film, Warner Bros./DC's Justice League. People are saying it's a letdown, considering that earlier this week, it was expected to make somewhere around $120 million this weekend. And that's much lower than the $166...

Weekend Box Office Nov. 10-12 : 'Thor: Ragnarok' still reigns

Thor: Ragnarok was as expected once again the No. 1 film this weekend with $56.6 million and almost $211.6 domestically. So far, it has made over $650 million worldwide, heading for one billion globally -- or pretty close to that.

I have to admit, I've ever saw the appeal of horror film in which the basic concept is coming up with ideas of various horrifically grisly ways to kill off people, then...

Weekend Box Office Oct. 20-22: 'Boo 2! A Madea Halloween' frightens off the competition

Though things are up and down and definitely uncertain in the film business, there is one thing is for sure. Tyler Perry just keeps going on. Love him or hate him, you cannot deny that he does have his audience. Not necessarily the same audience that would go see Moonlight, but they're there. Perry's Boo 2! A Medea Halloween (an unwieldy title if ever there was one) was not screened...
