Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Maleficent’ Casts a Spell Over the Box Office

We're knee-deep in the summer movie season and the hits just keep on coming. Despite mixed buzz, 'Maleficent' opened very strong, not coming close to the massive numbers of the past few weekends, but certainly holding its own. However, the success of Disney's latest live action effort meant that the weekend's other big release, Seth MacFarlane's 'A Million Ways to Die in the West,' fared less well.

‘A Million Ways To Die In The West’ Review: The Most Important Movie Ever Made

I suspect it has a lot to do with the human carnage we witness on screen being unbearable to watch, so the only way to desensitize an audience’s eyes to what they're about to witness is to somehow convince the viewer that what their about to see is a comedy – even though there is not one laugh to be had.

‘Batman vs. Superman’ Gets an Official Title: Enter the ‘Dawn of Justice’

For the past year or so, we've been calling 'Batman vs. Superman' 'Batman vs. Superman' only because we didn't have an official title. There were rumors of 'World's Finest' but nothing was ever confirmed as an official title for the film, but 'Batman vs. Superman' had a nice ring to it, so we went with that. N

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Godzilla’ is King of the Box Office

Everyone expected 'Godzilla' to take the number one spot at the box office this weekend, but few people saw it doing business that rivals 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' and 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2.'
