TGITDNMAR: (4/10/15)

Daddy definitely went to work this weekend. Furious 7 grossed a staggering $147 million in the U.S. – good for ninth all-time – to absolutely bludgeon all comers and best the franchise’s previous opening weekend record holder (Fast & Furious […]

TGITDNMAR: (4/3/15)

In the least surprising news you’ll hear all year, Disney knows how to make money. Lots and lots of money. As stated last week, people love Cinderella. They apparently love her and her story to the tune of almost $68 […]

TGITDNMAR: (3/13/15)

Remember how last week I said March would give way to more exciting, interesting movies? Well, after Chappie and Unfinished Business opened to putrid reviews and bombed spectacularly, I’m left with the proverbial egg on my face. Or maybe the […]

TGITDNMAR: (3/6/15)

TGITDNMAR: (2/13/15)

As predicted in this very space last week, The Wachowskis’ latest, Jupiter Ascending, bombed spectacularly at the box office this weekend, grossing a shade over $18 million. That’s $18 million against a $175 million production budget. That’s, um, bad. Really […]
