Joe gives his picks for the top 10 movies of 2017.
This week on the podcast, Zach, Chris and Joe talk about the terrible first trailer for the new Death Wish, bringing back 80’s TV shows, the official return of Rick & Morty, Atomic Blonde, Spawn and much more.
Both ends of the movie spectrum are out this week with Oscar nominees Hidden Figures and Lion and January dumping ground movies like Monster Trucks along with the previous seasons of Veep and Silicon Valley and more.
The best weekend of the year for movies so far had The Lego Batman Movie on top while John Wick Chapter 2 managed to double the opening of it’s predecessor and Rings took a massive nosedive in it’s second weekend and Fifty Shades Darker made about half as much as it’s predecessor.
Over the Super Bowl weekend, Split remained on top while Rings had the lowest opening for the franchise and The Space Between Us had an all time terrible opening.
Split stayed on top of the box office for another weekend while Resident Evil: The Final Chapter had the lowest ever opening for the franchise and Matthew McConaughey’s Gold barely made it into the top 10.
The nominees have been announced for the upcoming 89th Academy Awards with obvious front runner La La Land still the front runner with 14 nominations.
Split dominated the box office with the fourth best opening for both M. Night Shymalan and January in general while Rogue One crossed over the $1 billion mark worldwide.
Hidden Figures took the top spot at the box office away from Rogue One for this past holiday weekend while La La Land is boosted by it’s award season accolades and the rest of the new and expanding releases didn’t really fare that well.
Rogue One held off strong competition from the wide release of Hidden Figures over the weekend while Underworld: Blood Wars was the lowest ever opening for the series.
