‘Captain Underpants’ Review: Why Front? This Animated Comedy Is Fun for Kids and Silly Adults Alike It’s hard to say the name “Captain Underpants” without smiling, and the big-screen debut of the skivvies-clad superhero (the film’s subtitle is “The First Epic Movie”) maintains that same goofy, innocently naughty nature for nearly its entire running time. Yes, there are farts, and musical numbers choreographed around infinite rolls of toilet paper, and an arch-nemesis named Professor Poopypants; at the preview screening I attended, kids were delighted, and so were more than a few adults who were willing to surrender to the animated feature’s grammar-s

'Fantastic Beasts' Sequel Casts 'Green Room's Callum Turner as Newt's Brother Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is going to launch a new Harry Potter franchise whether you like it or not. The next installment will dive a little bit deeper into Newt Scamander’s past and also flesh out Dumbledore’s backstory and how it all connects to the beginnings of Voldemort. We already know that Newt has a very important ex, but apparently he also has a family, as his brother is currently being cast. Continue reading…

Weekend Box Office: Zach Braff And Demi Lovato Duke It Out For Third Place Dreamworks Animation After a monstrous March that saw five movies open with more than $40 million (including the $175 million opening of Beauty and the Beast), April got off to an unremarkable start, and with the exception of next week’s The Fate and the Furious, it’s likely to remain that way until the first weekend of May when Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens. The race for first place this weekend was between two holdovers — last week’s number one movie, The Boss Baby, and the number one film the two weeks prior to it, Beauty and the Beast.

Box Office Prediction – The Boss Baby vs. Smurfs: The Lost Village Welcome to the Screen Rant Box Office Prediction. Every week we put together an informal list of box office picks for the upcoming weekend to offer readers a rough estimate of how new releases (and returning holdovers) will perform in theaters. For a recap of last week’s box office totals, read our box office wrap-up from Ghost in the Shell‘s opening weekend, and scroll to the bottom of this post to see how our picks matched up. Full disclosure: Box office predictions are not an exact science. We acknowledge our picks may not always be correct.

Release dates are sometimes more interesting than their movies.The simple answer for how a movie like The Boss Baby opens at number one is that it’s a major studio animated feature debuting in late March. Specific to this movie, however, there are certain special circumstances, like Beauty and the Beast finally dropping enough to give something else a shot and Ghost in the Shell being a flop, possibly due to its whitewashing casting controversy and possibly just due to its just not being very good.March is a tricky month for movie releases.

Weekend Box Office Report: March 31-April 2, 2017 The Boss Baby takes charge! Animated infant Alec Baldwin seized control of the box office this weekend as THE BOSS BABY opened with an estimated $49 million! The PG-rated family comedy (adapted from the childrens' book of the same name) was about average for the first weekend of a non-SHREK Dreamworks effort, right between the $47.6 million start of KUNG FU PANDA 2 and the $49.4 million...

‘The Boss Baby’ Bounces to No. 1 With $15.5 Million Opening at Friday Box Office Fox/DreamWorks Animation’s “The Boss Baby” has become a surprise No. 1 success at the box office, riding robust advance ticket sales to claim the top spot from “Beauty and the Beast” with a $15.5 million opening Friday from 3,773 screens. That strong opening has drastically pushed opening weekend estimates to the low 50s for the Alec Baldwin-fronted family film. A total in that range would put it in the same neighborhood as the $52.1 million opening enjoyed by DreamWorks’ “Home” in the same release date spot back in 2015.
