I thought I was being slightly aggressive with this weekend’s prediction on how much box office pull a talking raccoon would have on cinema-goers. Never would I have thought that I had grossly underestimated that pull.
Follow me after the jump for the galactically surprising numbers that Rocket Racoon, Groot and the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy raked in this weekend!
I think some folks are afraid to say it, but I’m not. Guardians of the Galaxy is the best movie of 2014, and it’s only been out a couple days. I saw it once and I want to see it again. When’s the last time you heard someone say that about a movie? This is the one. Meet me after the jump for a quick spoiler-free review of Marvel’s newest hit flick, Guardians of the Galaxy.
That’s right! He’s attending the 2014 Twin Peaks Festival in North Bend,Washington, and you can follow the blogging exploits of that adventure at Wrapped in Plastic: Twin Peaks And Andy Burns. Have a good time, Andy. And ekil uoy mug yojne.
That leaves me with the duty of predicting what could very well be the biggest opening box office weekend for a film in the history of all Augusts.
Follow me after the jump for this weekend’s galactic-sized predictions!
As I’m sure you know, Guardians of the Galaxy, the latest film in the Marvel Entertainment line of films, was released last night. Look for it to have a big weekend at the box office – our predictions for it (and the other films available this weekend) will be posted later this afternoon.
In the meantime, Marvel Entertainment has just released a five-plus minute trailer detailing the first and second phases of their movie franchises.
It’s an amazing tapestry of cinematic storytelling that catches you up to where we are right now. Catch it after the jump!
Here at Biff Bam Pop!, we can be pretty critical of the movies, television, and comics we love. I know I’m guilty of it. It’s easy to criticize, but the question is – could I do it better? Now we present the first in a new series, If I Did It, the brainstorm of editor-in-chief Andy Burns, where contributors tell how they would do things differently in work they disliked.
Meet me after the jump for my first If I Did It… a film about which I have had a lot to say in the past, and not a lot of it good… Man of Steel!
There have been enough articles written on Batman to wallpaper every home in America, but for Batman’s big 75th Anniversary I wanted to cover the women from television and film who had crossed paths with the Dark Knight. What did they think of the big guy and were they friend or foe? Head to the Batcave to find out. Read the rest of this entry
The Batmobile is perhaps the coolest car ever in the history of television (and of course comics as well). The General Lee. K.I.T.T. The Black Beauty. Grampa Munster’s Dragula. Speed Racer’s Mach 5. Even that car from the short-lived “Automan” that could make turns at ninety-degree angles. None of them live up to Batman’s ride. The line from Batman Forever is “The car, chicks dig the car.” There is so much truth in that statement and yet, it is not precisely true. Everyone digs the car. Meet me after the jump, and we’ll talk about some of the coolest Batmobiles over the ages.
I can still remember the teaser trainer to the first The Lord of the Rings film, The Fellowship of the Ring. I think it was in the fall, nearly fifteen years ago and I was completely captivated by it, freeze-framing every still so that I could get a good look at all the imagery that director Peter Jackson had put on display.
Today, we have our first teaser trailer for the final instalment of The Hobbit trilogy. This is, as they say, the defining chapter of the six films.
Follow me after the jump for an early look at December’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
