TGITDNMAR: (1/16/15)

Taken 3 made nearly 40 million dollars this weekend, which was good for the third largest January opening of all-time. Good job, people. I’m not saying you can’t, or shouldn’t, enjoy the cheap thrills of those kinds of movies, but […]

TGITDNMAR: (12/12/14)

A few weeks ago I typed the following: “I feel confident in predicting this week’s lone entry will be the highest grossing film of the year.” I then proceeded to make a really bad food joke as a way to […]

TGITDNMAR: (12/5/14)

It wasn’t a particularly lucrative weekend for new releases, as Horrible Bosses 2 opened a disappointing fifth (with a little over $15 million), while Penguins of Madagascar managed a second place finish despite being outgrossed by The Hunger Games: Mockingjay […]
