Meaning it is certain to top $600 million next weekend, likely ending the weekend at around $615-620 million, depending on [...]

Read why there's such a disconnect between critics, the press, fans, and the mainstream public over SUICIDE SQUAD!

Warner Bros.' super-villain team-up movie Suicide Squad has had quite a week. What precisely is meant by "quite a week," however, depends on who you ask and which news coverage you read. There has been a distinct contrast between the reality of Suicide Squad's box office performance and how a [...]

http://www.forbes.com/sites/markhughes/2016/08/19/review-kubo-and-the-two-strings-is-a-mesmerizing-emotional-animated-film/
Animation has become one of the most consistently reliable "genres" of film in modern times (I know, animation isn't technically a "genre," but on the other hand animated cinema -- particularly for families-- has adopted certain conventions of style, characterization, storytelling, and so on that make it easier to apply [...]
