‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ Bombs Amid Johnny Depp Scandal “Alice Through the Looking Glass” has all The Playing Cards stacked against it as it seeks to hold onto its head through the Disney sequel’s opening Memorial Day weekend.

Warcraft Projected For $30 Million Overseas Opening Some moviegoers believe 2016 will mark a turnaround for video game film adaptations, citing works like Warcraft and Assassin’s Creed as reasons to be hopeful. However, as the former of those begins its rollout into theaters across the globe, the prospects do not seem very good.

His roles gradually began to grow, assuming leads in action films like The Rundown and Walking Tall that hinted at Johnson’s potential to be the next big movie star.

BOX OFFICE: X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Earns $65 Million Domestic In 3-Day Weekend With a 3-day holiday weekend in its corner, X-Men: Apocalypse will only earn $65 million domestically [$78 million across 4-days]. That's a disappointing figure when compared to Batman v Superman's $166 million and Captain America: Civil War's $179.1 million.  This figure is also way down from Days of Future Past's $110.6 million opening weekend gross.  But all is not lost.  The last two X-flicks attributed the bulk of its worldwide box office total to foreign territories.

Will ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Be Hurt by Its Mixed Reviews? Reviews for “X-Men: Apocalypse” have been decidedly mixed.

Bryan Singer Teases X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Deleted Scenes; Reveals There Will Be No Alternate Cut It's been exactly 2 years, 5 months, and 20 days since director Bryan Singer officially announced X-Men: Apocalypse as the follow-up to his critically acclaimed blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past and the day we've all been waiting for is finally here!

Warcraft – The Coolest Kids On The Block Duncan Jones thinks there is an arms race in Hollywood for the best visual effects and right now he and the crew of Warcraft are the coolest kids on the block. It’s hard to say for story and acting from the trailers, but the visuals we’ve seen so far in the trailers and featurettes are pretty stunning.
