(EXCLUSIVE) #BoxOffice Report: #Burnt, #OurBrandIsCrisis Get Burned

October's new releases continue their disastrous run. Story by Matt Cummings Although the weather has begun its transition into Fall, someone has apparently forgotten to tell moviegoers that it's time to celebrate by seeing newer releases. This week's top 5 welcomed only one new film, while three others continued their 'dominance' in the absence of anything better. In fact, the top spots - The Martian ($10.7m), Goosebumps ($9.2m), and Bridge of Spies ($7.6m) - haven't changed their positions since last weekend. Add Hotel Transylvania 2 at No. 5, and the only newcomer to make a dent was Bradley Cooper's Burnt at $4.7m. But the bigger news continues to be Hollywood's inability to draw significant amounts of moviegoers to newer releases. How bad have October's releases fared? Just consider the following: seven major releases (those premiering on 2,000+ screens) had total openings of just $54.8m. That's only $500k over what T

Adam Sandler's "The Ridiculous 6" Trailer

Hotel Transylvania 2 ’s animated antics aside, Adam Sandler could use a win at the moment, what with Pixels under performing and the catastrophic failure of The Cobbler to keep his more serious indie acting cred afloat. The first release from his multi-film Netflix deal, Western farce The Ridiculous 6 is part of his attempt to see if an original serving of his broad comedy stylings will work for the streaming service’s audience, and the first trailer is now online. Watch the trailer after the Jump... Sandler stars as an outlaw named Tommy, AKA White Knife, an orphan raised by Native Americans who discovers that he has five half-brothers (including the likes of Luke Wilson, Terry Crews, Rob Schneider and Taylor Lautner ) and decides that they’ll go on a mission to find their wayward, deadbeat dad. Oh, and they’ll keep committing robberies along the way. Naturally, this leads to the authorities (embodied in part by Will Forte ) trying to track them down. We’re in standard S

(EXCLUSIVE) #BoxOffice Report: New Titles Get Hammered, 'The Martian' Re-Emerges On Top

It's one of the closest weekends ever as audiences return to Ridley Scott's epic. Story by Matt Cummings This weekend's box office reminded us of the old saying "Just Because It's New Doesn't Mean It's Great," as audiences stayed away from five new releases, while returning a familiar name to No. 1. Although we discussed the race this weekend on our Inside the Bucket podcast, SJF was unwilling to crown anyone No. 1 because the numbers were so close. In fact, the winner was eventually crowned by the smallest margin of the year - just $219,000. But its return to the top saw many new releases under perform, perhaps fairing worse than the pre-sale of Star Wars: The Force Awakens . Returning to the top is the Ridley Scott/Matt Damon Science Fiction epic The Martian with $15.7m. The Fox space survival film has endured with audiences for a variety of reasons: the terrific science behind the story, and the fact that Author Andy Weir's boo

#BoxOffice Report: 'The Martian' Continues Its Run, 'Pan' Fails to Appeal

The Martian keeps the rescue coming, while Pan walks the plank. Story by Matt Cummings As discussed in our Inside the Bucket podcast this weekend, the US box office proved once again that legitimately bad press can kill a movie long before it gets released. Meanwhile, Ridley Scott's newest film continues to impress. Leading the box office for the second consecutive week is The Martian with a very good $37.01m haul, dropping only 32% from its release. That's better than 2014's Interstellar , which dropped 40% in its second week. Riding high on critical and popular praise, the Matt Damon survival film has already made a stunning $108.72m by emphasizing friendly teamwork and no manufactured drama. Remaining at a distant No. 2 was Hotel Transylvania 2 , with an estimated $20.42m, dropping only 38% in its third week. The Adam Sandler/Selena Gomez animated follow-up is really the only game in town for families, but that's not the only reason why it&#

#BoxOffice Report: 'The Martian' Shines, 'The Walk' Falls Off The Wire

The Ridley Scott film could be the biggest October opening ever. Story by Matt Cummings If August 2015 broke all kinds of box office records for infamy, October 2015 could do the same but in the more preferred direction. The beginning of the Oscar season kicked off with two very good showings, even though the specter of serious disappointment has already claimed one hopeful submission. Coming in at No. 1 was Science-Fiction epic The Martian with a stunning $55m haul, which nearly doubles the performance of the No. 2 film. Martian is only $700,000 behind the Oscar winner Gravity , which is also about an American astronaut stranded in space and needing a rescue. Director Ridley Scott is back in a big way with The Martian , which tells of astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) surviving on Mars until a rescue mission can reach him. We loved the movie (read our review HERE ), so it was no surprise it resonated with both fans and critics. The impressive performance is jus

Movie Review: 'Hotel Transylvania 2'

Hotel Transylvania 2 is more of the same, but is that good enough? Review by Matt Cummings In a year of gross-out humor, dark and dreary landscapes, and even some animated films that were frankly way too young for children, Hotel Transylvania 2 might have found itself the odd monster banished to the Forest of Forgotten Genres. Luckily, it returns to re-stake its claim to the beliefs that funny doesn't have to always be gross, and that little kids still have a place in Hollywood's big budget machine. Fresh off a marriage to the lovable loser Jonathon (voiced by Andy Samberg), Mavis (voiced by Selena Gomez) soon delivers the baby Dennis whom her father Dracula (Adam Sandler) is convinced is a vampire just waiting to arrive. But Mavis isn't onboard and thinks her new family should move to California where Jonathon's parents (Nick Offerman and Molly Shannon) represent the kind of life that Dennis truly deserves. But Dracula is a tough customer, and so he
