John Wick Takes Down The Avengers At The Box Office

If there was anyone who was going to finally knock the Avengers from the top spot at the US box office, it was John Wick, who could probably have taken down Thanos without all the complicated hassle. And so it has proved, with John Wick: Chapter Three – Parabellum has launched in first place with $57 million this weekend, according to studio estimates.

That's the best start for a Wick film to date, and it has already earned more in one weekend than the original film took in total in the States. Avengers: Endgame, meanwhile, was nudged down to second place, yet it still took in $29.4 million. Domestically, the movie has now made $770 million, passing Avatar in that regard, though it has a little way to go to best it worldwide, moving the needle to $2.5 billion in its fourth weekend (Avatar still sits at $2.7 billion).

Pokemon: Detective Pikachu earned $24.8 million in third place, pushing past $94 million in the US. A Dog's Journey, the sequel to 2017's A Dog's Purpose, opened to $8 million in fourth, representing about $10 million less than the original. It'll have to hope for an international boost much like Purpose got from China.

Fifth was con comedy The Hustle, adding $6 million, while The Intruder fell two places to sixth with $4 million. Long Shot earned $3.4 million, slipping to seventh. Romantic YA adaptation The Sun Is Also A Star opened to $2.6 million at eighth, while cheerleading comedy Poms was pushed to ninth on $2 million. Finally, Uglydolls found itself 10th, taking in $1.6 million. The 'toon has barely cracked $17 million in the States and seems unlikely to spawn the hoped-for franchise.

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See THE OATH In SAN FRANCISCO #THEOATH

Enter For A Chance To Win Pass To See THE OATH on September 26th at 7:30 PM in SAN FRANCISCO.

Writer/Director Ike Barinholtz will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.

From the producers of GET OUT & BLACKkKLANSMAN comes a raw and riotous political comedy for divisive times.

A controversial White House policy turns family member against family member in The Oath, a savagely funny dark comedy about surviving life and Thanksgiving in the age of political tribalism. When Chris (Ike Barinholtz), a high-strung 24-hour progressive news junkie, and his more levelheaded wife Kai (Tiffany Haddish) learn that citizens are being asked to sign a loyalty oath to the President, their reaction is disbelief, followed by idealistic refusal. But as the post-Thanksgiving deadline to sign approaches, the combination of sparring relatives, Chris’s growing agitation and the unexpected arrival of two government agents (John Cho and Billy Magnussen) sends an already tense family gathering com…

Sex Tape Review: Overly Sexual, Rude, Vulgar, and Absolutely Hilarious

The raunchy Sex Tape will divide audiences and critics, but who cares? Sex Tape suggests a growing practice among loving partners: that of making a raunchy testament of their escapades for posterity. But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln" for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children. The couple has a lot to lose: a burgeoning business relationship between Annie and Hank (Rob Lowe) could end if the iPad she's given to Hank exposes the video, and so the couple sets out to reclaim and wipe the incriminating …
