Welcome back to Heroes and Villains, the column where I get to live my geek dreams and talk about comics with a captive audience!
This week I had the opportunity to read Volume 1 of American Gods from Dark Horse Comics and a few quick reads from Image, so let’s get started!
Last year’s adaptation of Stephen King’s classic 1986 massive horror novel IT proved to be a huge draw for horror fans. The film grossed $700 million worldwide, the biggest horror movie of all time. And the great thing is, IT is absolutely outstanding as both a film with frights and a coming of age tale.
Liam Neeson has a very specific set of skills, and he’s going to be plying them at the box office this weekend. Will he take over the top spot? Here’s our prediction:
The Commuter is yet another film starring Liam Neeson as an action star. Is the schtick getting old? Judging by the lack of real hype surrounding this film, the answer is probably yes. Though he has an audience, there’s likely not enough of them of that moment to give the film a big arrival. Look for a fifth place showing with $14.5 million.
