With a trio of unimpressive newcomers arriving at the box office this weekend, the path was clear for the holdovers to remain on top. Coming in first again is The LEGO Batman Movie with $34.2 million in its second weekend. That’s only a 35.4 percent decrease from its debut, which is an excellent hold. It isn’t surprising the film has had nice legs, given it was a hit with critics and generated enthusiastic word-of-mouth from audiences. LEGO Batman is a fun time at the multiplex for viewers young and old, and its status as the only real family film in town helped as well.

Let’s be frank. The none-more-gritty presentation of the Power Rangers reboot has caught some of us moldy old folks (read: ages 30 and up) a bit by surprise.

Granted, this is a personal hang-up and not the case for a new generation of juice bar enthusiasts, but the tone change can feel strange.

Wong is probably most closely associated with his decade-plus tenure portraying forensic psychiatrist Dr. George Huang on the long-running NBC police procedural Law & Order: SVU, but has more recently turned in memorable performances as both Whiterose on USA’s Mr. Robot and the sinister Dr.

The twitter account for the upcoming King Arthur film has teased out a new 30 second clip ahead of a new full trailer schedule to release tomorrow on President’s Day. We’ve had two trailers thus far – one from back at SDCC last year, then one that’d dropped just shy of a month ago. From Nothing Comes a King. A new #KingArthur trailer debuts TOMORROW! pic.twitter.com/ZFiHejPUL6 — King Arthur (@kingarthurmovie) February 19, 2017 Fans of the traditional Arthurian legends will need to take a few deep breaths before jumping into this one.
While it’s certainly true that not every horror, sci-fi, or action film needs an R-rating to be good, there are definitely particular stories that cry out for the creative freedom only an R allows. Additionally, one would assume that sequels and prequels to R-rated films would most appropriately be suited by going R also, so as to best serve the tastes of those who made their predecessors a hit in the first place.

Doctor Strange challenged viewers to open their minds to experience something unlike anything Marvel had presented before. This was not just an indication that magic was in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but a promise that the visuals would be something completely unique. The earliest marketing drew comparisons to Christopher Nolan’s Inception thanks to buildings folding in on themselves, but Doctor Strange took this to a completely new level. As if the exploration of multiple dimensions was not trippy enough, the film’s more revolutionary visual scene came in the third act.
