MI Fallout is out this week along with horror hit The Nun and comedic flop The Happytime Murders, TV like Castlevania and Westworld and more.
Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish topped the box office with their comedy Night School while Smallfoot and Hell Fest performed to expectations and The Nun became the highest grossing movie worldwide for The Conjuring franchise.
Eli Roth’s family-friendly spookfest The House With a Clock In Its Walls was the only bright spot in one of the worst performing weekends at the box office in 2018, taking #1 as the three other new releases failed spectacularly.
The Predator won a Pyrrhic victory at the box office over the weekend, taking #1 but also having the worst opening ever for a movie in over 4,000 theaters, taking that spot away from Tom Cruise’s The Mummy.
The Nun not only crushed every other entry in The Conjuring franchise as far as opening weekends, it also had the second highest September and R rated horror opening of all time, behind IT Chapter One.
September kicks off with Jennifer Garner back in action in a revenge thriller, the latest chapter in The Conjuring Universe and a faith-based drama, all of which are Rotten according to the critics.
Transitioning from the summer to fall, September has a few blockbusters like The Predator but also the start of horror season with The Nun and Hell Fest, Jennifer Garner going Punisher in Peppermint and more.
This week on the podcast, Zach, Chris and Joe are back from a week off and try to dig through the tons of trailers that got released over the last week and everything revealed at the big E3 2018 press conferences.
Set chronologically before all the prior movies in The Conjuring franchise, The Nun follows a young nun and a priest sent to investigate the death of a nun in a remote abbey in Romania that is tied to the demonic Valak aka The Demon Nun.
