‘Kong: Skull Island’ Takes On ‘Logan’ At The Box Office

After an incredible debut weekend, will our previous box office number one hold on to the spot, or will a legendary King climb to the top of the heap? Here are our predictions:

 

Kong: Skull Island is an effects-driven film that seems like it would do well as a summer blockbuster, but instead here it is arriving just a few short weeks before Spring. This is the next in what is looking to be a shared universe between King Kong and Godzilla, with the potential for more giant monsters to come. Kong benefits from a great group of actors, including Tom Hiddleston, John Goodman, Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson, along with decent reviews, but word of mouth around the final film of Marvel’s favourite mutant is going to dash Kong: Skull Island‘s dream of number one. Look for a second place debut with $43 million. Read the rest of this entry

Lawyer Up With “Kingpin #1” On The Wednesday Run

kingpin-1-coverLong time bad guy finally goes legit.

A likely story, right?

No one can escape their reputation. Michael Corleone famously reminded us of that fact in The Godfather Part III: “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.”

Al Pacino is all kinds of awesome.

And Wilson Fisk, the “Kingpin” of crime in the Marvel Universe, is all kids of bad.

Can the arch-enemy of Daredevil (not to mention Spider-Man and the Punisher), go good? Can he change his disposition? Does he want to? Will the world let him?

A new series, appropriately titled Kingpin, aims to answer those questions, beginning with the first issue, out today!

Civil War II #8

There’s no question that Civil War II has had a lot to live up. The first series, crafted by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven, is a classic piece of sequential storytelling, and its repercussions were felt for the decade that followed it. Anything that would follow would certainly have to deliver something memorable and groundbreaking.  Read the rest of this entry

Get (To? Two?) Guarding With “Gamora #1” & “Star-Lord #1” On The Wednesday Run

gamora-1-coverI remember when the Guardians of the Galaxy film was first green-lit.

Sure, Marvel had been knocking it out of the park, both critically and monetarily, with their series of interconnected film franchises. I mean… Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Avengers… how could you second-guess the brain trust that was making those kinds of studio decisions?

But Guardians of the Galaxy?

A gun-toting raccoon and a giant walking, somewhat talking, tree? In space?

Admittedly, I thought it would be a hot mess, singlehandedly signaling the demise of the superhero film franchise.

Boy, was I wrong.

Boy, was that an awesome film.

Boy, I can’t wait for the sequel next year!

To tide us over until then, today, Marvel Comics launches two new monthly series’ starring the coolest characters from the Guardians franchise: Gamora #1 and Star-Lord #1.

Finally!

Doctor Strange weaves his spell on the box office

There’s something strange at the box office this weekend, and it managed to score with audiences. Here’s what went down:

ag7

Marvel’s Doctor Strange debut in first place this weekend with an outstanding $85 million. That’s definitely off from our predictions, but to be fair, I was shooting high with that one. The number is $0.7 million from Thor: The Dark World, the previous Marvel film to debut in November and one that wasn’t debuting a brand new MCU characters. Reviews have been solid across the board, and I’d be surprising if Doctor Strange doesn’t top out over $200 million in North America by the end of its run. It’s yet another home run for Marvel Studios.
