Deadpool Congratulates Wonder Woman

There’s no denying that Wonder Woman is a box office giant. Not only has it exceeded the expectations of even the most optimistic box office forecasters, but it has much longer legs than anyone anticipated. Weekend after weekend, the box office hasn’t been dropping anywhere near as steeply as Wonder Woman‘s box office competition, and another superhero with a surprise hit film wanted to show some love.

Deadpool was the surprise hit of 2016, landing over $363 million at the domestic box office, thanks to its fresh approach to the superhero origin story and the addition of naughty, adult humor and fourth wall breaking. Now the Merc with a Mouth has been overtaken by Wonder Woman‘s march up the box office charts, but he’s not mad at all, as evidenced by a recent post to social media.

War for the Planet of the Apes ceasar guns

Director Matt Reeves’ War for the Planet of the Apes was /Film’s most anticipated movie of the summer and it hasn’t let any of us down yet. In his full review, Ethan Anderton gave it a rare 10 out of 10. Ben Pearson named it one of the 10 best movies of 2017 so far. Hoai-Tran Bui had some reservations, but even she threw around words like “brilliant” to describe its craftsmanship. Heck, I’m one of the only members of the team who hasn’t seen the movie yet, so I can only write about these new featurettes and the box office tracking and say “Yeah, it still looks pretty great.”

A Dog’s Purpose may have found its calling: in China.

The heartwarming tale of a dog (voiced by Josh Gad) who gets reincarnated multiple times before he finds its way back to his owner (Dennis Quaid) may have had middling success in the States, but it was all the rage at the Chinese box offices, bringing in $88 million compared to the domestic $64 million haul. And it’s the power of Chinese pet-lovers that has helped greenlight A Dog’s Purpose sequel.

It’s an age-old argument that directors fall back on: This movie is for the fans, not the critics.

Well, hate to break it to you, but critics are fans of movies too. And in the case of director Alex Kurtzman using this justification to defend his highly-reviled The Mummy, it seems like audiences aren’t too keen on it either.

power rangers sequel

Fans loved Power Rangers. Everyone else, not so much.

Although for a while it seemed as if fan enthusiasm could will a Power Rangers sequel into existence, that didn’t seem to be the case after the abysmal international box office numbers came in for the silver screen reboot of the kitschy ’90s TV series. But there may still be hope for a sequel after all thanks to one factor moviegoers may have forgotten about: toys.

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 box office

There’s an inherently dramatic arc to the rise and fall of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise. Back in 2003, everybody scoffed at the mere existence of a big budget adventure movie based on a theme park attraction, so it was shocking when the movie wasn’t just watchable – it was pretty damn good. But like all titans and heroes of legend, it eventually had to stumble. 14 years later, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales struggled at the box office in its opening weekend and this could be a sign that the industry is in for a bit of a rough summer.
