Traditionally Doctor Who is considered to be the protector of Earth and mankind against all manner of alien invaders, but what happens when it’s mankind who are the invaders, and the invades are former archenemies of The Doctor? That’s the conundrum when Victorian age explorers land on Mars amongst a hive of Ice Warriors – what will The Doctor do? Meet me after the small time and space jump for my thoughts on “Empress of Mars.”
Hey folks, Glenn Walker here, editor-in-chief Andy Burns who usually does the weekly Box Office Predictions, is out of town, so I will be giving this a shot. Remember, folks, I’m not a gambler, or a psychic, and kids, don’t try this at home. Box office predictin’ is dangerous business.
This weekend brings Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Zootopia, and London Has Fallen, as well as The Other Side of the Door into theaters. Can Deadpool hold on to its lead for a third weekend in a row? Let’s see what my guesses are, after the jump.

I’m convinced that the Monster Mania convention is the Disneyland for the demented.

If you’ve never been to this or any other horror convention, you’re in for a real treat. Read the rest of this entry
The partnership between Disney and Marvel has been very good for everyone involved. Some of the best live action superhero comic book movies of all time have resulted. But now, Disney is digging a little deeper into the Marvel vaults for an animated feature. Meet me after the jump for the new trailer of Big Hero 6.
While, this column’s regular contributor basks in the sun of a very well deserved holiday with his family, I’m tasked with counting turnstile receipts for this weekend’s box office results.
I must admit, although there aren’t any crazy headlines to be made from the decisions of movie-goers over the past few days, there are some surprising good results for one film, and some not-so-surprisingly horrible results for another.
How did our predictions pan out? Follow me after the jump and I’ll tell you all about it!
The early box office estimates are in and, as predicted, we have a new number one. Here’s what went down.
After duking it out with The Hobbit for the past three weeks, Frozen finally returned to the top spot at the box office, bringing in $22.5 million, raising its total to $299 million in North America. The film continues to have legs and could find itself close to $350 million when its run concludes.

Everybody at Biff Bam Pop! is talking about Top Fives this week, so I guess it’s my turn. There were so many good things going on this year in movies, it will be hard to narrow them down to just five in each category, but I’ll try. Next, after the jump, we’ll look at my top fives (give or take) in film for 2013.
At the start of the weekend, Biff Bam Pop! predicted a big rush for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, giving The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug a tumble, and beating out other newcomers American Hustle and Saving Mr. Banks. Frozen would still hold onto the top five as well. Check me after the jump to see how BBP’s predictions matched the weekend’s real numbers.
Oh, that was a fun heading to write!
Not that I really had much to do. How often do you get a weekend box office wrap-up report that can write itself like this particular weekend? Thank you, Disney and Buona Vista, Lionsgate and Relativity Studios!
