Game of Thrones S07 E03: ‘The Queen’s Justice’

A whole lot to talk about as Fire and Ice finally meet, the Lannisters let loose in several different ways, and we continue to collect missing Starks in a densely packed episode that revealed a ton of things, even as it muddied several paths our heroes need to follow.  Let’s talk about them all after the break (and yes… lots and lots of spoilers).

It was a war for first place at the box office, and ‘Dunkirk’ won

It was a bit of a race for the top spot at the box office this weekend, but a holdover managed to remain on top, even as a new family friendly film tried to take its place. Here’s what went down:

Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk remained at the top of the box office for a second weekend in a row, bringing in an estimated $28.1 million. The film has already grossed over $100 million, and dropped less than 44% week to week. It will likely give up the top spot next weekend, when Stephen King’s The Dark Tower arrives.

‘The Emoji Movie’ vs ‘Atomic Blonde’ at the box office

There are a lot of emotions heading into the weekend, and when they’re unleashed? Well, they could be atomic. What movie will win the hearts of audiences? Here’s our prediction:

While on paper The Emoji Movie, a film based on emojis sounds like an absolutely horrible idea, that hasn’t stopped Sony Pictures from releasing a film based on them. Unfortunately for parents, what will be a must see film for kids this weekend is currently sitting at 0% at Rotten Tomatoes. Yes, Z-E-R-O. Good luck sitting through this one, folks. I’ll feel for everyone who helps make The Emoji Movie number one at the box office. Look for it to debut there with $32 million.

Sure, Jack Kirby’s a revered artist, and he created some of the best known comic characters around. Captain America and the Avengers and the Inhumans and the X-men, Galactus and the Silver Surfer and Red Skull and Darkseid, Kirby had a major hand in the stories and look of the heroes and villains currently raking in millions upon millions for film franchises on both sides of the ‘verse divide. He’s a giant of a figure, as BBP continues celebrating a summer of Kirby at 100. But did you know Jack Kirby was a spy?

It Won’t Take Wealth To Get Your Hands On “The Black Sinister” HC On The Wednesday Run

It’s been ten years since the 2007-2008 global financial crisis that devastated longstanding, too-big-to-fail, banking institutions and shattered the life savings of hundreds of thousands of hard working people.

Entire countries were enveloped in the quicksand of collapse. Jobs were eliminated overnight. Lives were lost.

And hatred, abhorrence and distrust for the affluent deepened and spread.

The phrase “1 per cent” became mainstream, and pop culture followed down that rabbit hole in many ways, be it film or music, continuously shining the light of justice and social equity on money, power…and, in the case of comic books, the rich superheroes that protected the city and its citizens!

Ladies and gentlemen, purveyors of social justice, fandom of a certain age, if you haven’t already had the pleasure, let me introduce to today’s release of The Black Sinister!
