Box Office News: Skyscraper Falls: The Latest Dwayne Johnson Action Flick Bombs Domestically

Posted By themoviesleuth 2 days ago on Entertainment - Considering The Rock's considerable box office draw and history of blockbuster action films, it comes as a surprise that his latest release is a financial disaster. Skyscraper basically bombed in its opening frame with a third place spot and a meager $25 million in ticket sales. Falling well below expectations of $35-40 million, it may struggle domestically and may have a hard time meeting its $125 million budget. Definitely inspired by Die Hard, the marketing behind it definitely failed to get the attention needed for a major summer release. In the number one slot was Hotel Transylvania 3 with $44 million and the second place position went to Ant-Man and the Wasp with another $29 million. Skyscraper is the third big budget release starring Dwayne Johnson to hit cinemas in the l

Cinematic Releases: Skyscraper (2018) - Reviewed

Posted By themoviesleuth 4 days ago on Entertainment - Does the world need another Die Hard? After all, we've had a perfectly serviceable one for 30 years. In fact, we have three, and some would argue four (we don't speak of A Good Day to Die Hard.)  Joking aside, Die Hard is more than just an average '80s action epic. It became the blueprint for what action movies would become for the next decade. Once upon a time "Die Hard on a..." was enough of a pitch to get you a three-picture deal with Paramount. The reason for that is that more often than not, it works. Audiences love watching movies where the put-upon everyman must acquire the MacGuffin and save his loved ones, with only his wits, a lifetime's worth of luck, and whatever weapon he happens to find handy. Action movies may have gotten darker and grittier as the millennium ended, bu

New Horror Releases: Ouija Seance: The Final Game (2018) - Reviewed

Posted By themoviesleuth 10 days ago on Entertainment - It is rather astounding how a Hasbro board game that can be purchased at just about any commercial big-box store could inspire an entire sub-genre of horror. There are at least three other movies out there that have the word ‘ouija’ in the title and about a hundred others that feature the use of ouija board as a major plot device. Despite the fact that there is scientific evidence disproving any kind of supernatural elements being the main force behind the board game, people still believe that ouija boards are a device used to communicate with the spirit world. It would seem that so long as people keep believing this and those boards keep selling, ouija movies will still be made no matter how terrible they are. Ouija Seance: The Final Game very well may be the holy grail of bad ouija mov

News: Idris Elba in Final Talks for Lead Villain in Hobbs and Shaw: Fast and Furious Spinoff

Posted By themoviesleuth 13 days ago on Entertainment - Let's face it. The Fast and the Furious franchise isn't going anywhere, any time soon. With the last film becoming one of the highest grossing movies of all time, this brand will see no end in the near future. For the last couple years, a spin off has been touted that would star Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham bringing back Hobbs and Shaw for a spinoff to the super successful film franchise. Now, it looks like another actor is being added to the flick that will definitely be a high dose of action and sneers. Idris Elba is in final negotiations to take on the role of the lead villain in the movie that's set to undoubtedly spawn even more high octane sequels.  Deadpool 2 director David Leitch is set to helm the project.  (function() { var zergnet = document.c
