As last week’s box office was understandably overshadowed by the tragic shooting rampage in a Colorado theater, the detractor this week came in the form of the opening of the XXX Olympic Games in London. Despite this, The Dark Knight Rises managed to retain 40% of its opening weekend audience. More on the weekend at the box-office after the jump!

#1. The Dark Knight Rises

Weekend: $64 million (-60%)
Theaters: 4,404
Budget: $250 million
CinemaScore: A
Rotten Tomatoes: 87%
Hypable Grade: A-

All things considered, The Dark Knight Rises really is faring quite well. While it took a massive hit against the Olympic competition on Friday, the rest of the weekend was quite strong for the Nolan flick, as it has proven there is still some legs on this feature as it has crossed the $500 million mark worldwide.

At $289 million domestically after two weekends, it will be difficult to match the $533 million mark from The Dark Knight, however it would be surprising if the film doesn’t continue to perform (at least reasonably) well over the coming weeks, both domestically and abroad.

Have you seen The Dark Knight Rises more than once? Do you plan to?

#2. Ice Age: Continental Drift

With just a 34% drop, Ice Age: Continental Drift is clearly the most viable family-friendly option against The Dark Knight Rises. The real story here, however, is how well it has performed overseas. With $511 million internationally compared with just $114 million domestically, this latest Ice Age is a success no matter how well it performs stateside.

Weekend: $13.3 million (-34.9%) | Theaters: 3,869 | Budget: $95 million | Hypable Grade: N/A

#3. The Watch

Talk about a dud. With just $13 million on a $68 million budget, The Watch can already be marked up as a failure financially and critically (just 14% on Rotten Tomatoes). R-rated comedies are always a bit of a wild card, as The Watch clearly couldn’t mirror Ted’s success.

Weekend: $13 million | Theaters: 3,168 | Budget: $68 million | Hypable Grade: N/A

#4. Step Up Revolution

The underperformance of Step Up Revolution makes this weekend’s newcomers 0/2 at the box office. The franchise is clearly suffering, which means maybe it’s time to bring C-Tates, box office hero, back. But more on him later.

Weekend: $11.8 million | Theaters: 2,567 | Budget: $33 million | Hypable Grade: N/A

#5. Ted

With just a 26% drop, Ted continues to perform magically. The $50 million budget was definitely a gamble, but it’s paid off as it nears $200 million domestically, a nice mark.

Weekend: $7.3 million (-26.6%) | Theaters: 3,129 | Budget: $50 million | Hypable Grade: N/A

#6. The Amazing Spider-Man

After suffering a major loss last weekend against newcomer The Dark Knight Rises, Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man suffered a lesser hit this weekend, although it will still need to rely on its international dollar for help, which has provided over 60% of the film’s overall gross.

Weekend: $6.8 million (-37.5%) | Theaters: 3,160 | Budget: $230 million | Hypable Grade: B-

#7. Brave

As it’s still in limited release internationally, Brave is certainly in solid shape financially. With just a 29% drop stateside, the Pixar feature continues to prove it has solid legs.

Weekend: $4.2 million (-29.7%) | Theaters: 2,551 | Budget: $185 million | Hypable Grade: N/A

#8. Magic Mike

Magic Mike is just incredible, as it’s crossed $100 million on just a $7 million budget – a 15x multiplier. This marks Channing Tatum’s third $100 million film in the past six month, and if G.I. Joe: Retaliation hadn’t been delayed, we’d probably be looking at four such films. Is there a more bankable star right now than C-Tates?

Weekend: $2.5 million (-39.9%) | Theaters: 2,075 | Budget: $7 million | Hypable Grade: B+

#9. Savages

Savages continues to struggle, which should hurt stars like Taylor Kitsch more than its proven director, Oliver Stone.

Weekend: $1.7 million (-48.4%) | Theaters: 1,414 | Budget: $45 million | Hypable Grade: N/A

#10. Moonrise Kingdom

Moonrise Kingdom continues to perform nicely as it rolls out around the country, as it’s now at $52 million worldwide on that slim budget of $16 million. Nicely done. Be sure to check out our interview with Wes Anderson Here!

Weekend: $1.3 million (-28.5%) | Theaters: 853 | Budget: $16 million | Hypable Grade: Here

Nickelodeon debuts action-packed ‘Legends of the Hidden Temple’ trailer at SDCC

The brand new trailer features tons of nods to the original 90s game show!

4:33 pm EDT, July 23, 2016

Get ready for a serious dose of nostalgia, 90s kids! Nickelodeon just premiered the trailer for the upcoming Legends of the Hidden Temple movie at San Diego Comic-Con and you’re definitely going to want to check it out!

The upcoming made-for-TV movie centers around three siblings who find themselves immersed in the temple after breaking away from a jungle tour. Once inside, they discover all the legends they’ve grown up hearing about the mysterious temple are actually real.

Being trapped in the temple itself may sound cool at the beginning, but the siblings will soon learn that getting out may be tougher than they originally anticipated. They’ll have to follow the map and survive the Temple’s many hidden rooms if they want to make it out unscathed.

Check out the first trailer for Legends of the Hidden Temple below!

Fans of the original game show are sure to recognize quite a few of the most iconic aspects taken from the beloved 90s series. Olmec aside, the first action-packed trailer includes mentions of the steps of knowledge, the shrine of the silver monkey, and more— They’ve even managed to slip in mentions of some of the old teams contestant were able to play on when competing on the original game show!

The upcoming Legends of the Hidden Temple movie reunites Kirk Fogg (original TV how host) and Dee Bradley Baker (original voice of Olmec), and additionally stars Isabela Moner, Colin Critchley, and Jet Jurgensmeyer.

Legends of the Hidden Temple premieres on Nickelodeon in the fall of 2016

Hot off the heels of the Wonder Woman trailer DC has released our first look at the art for Justice League as well as the first trailer!

It’s a very exciting day to be a DC movies fan! After debuting the Wonder Woman trailer earlier today, DC surprised everyone with the first official Justice League trailer which has been simultaneously released publicly during its debut at San Diego Comic-Con. It should be noted that the video, posted on Director Zack Snyder’s Twitter account, includes a title card at the beginning denoting that this video was made specifically for fans at Comic-Con. “The following footage was prepared by the filmmakers as a special look for fans in attendance at Comic-Con 2016.”

Click full screen, turn up your volume, and get ready for this!

The “trailer” (if that’s what we’re calling it) doesn’t give away much about the plot of the movie, however. It features Bruce Wayne checking in and recruiting Cyborg, Aquaman and The Flash – the three of which weren’t as heavily featured in this year’s Batman V Superman.

One of the more thrilling parts of the video is when Bruce Wayne shows up to meet The Flash and throws a Batarang at him. We get to see the slow motion perspective of The Flash while a Batarang whizzes by his face, with him ultimately realizing who has just appeared before him. Before Bruce even has a second to sell him on joining the Justice League, he’s interrupted. “Stop right there. I’m in,” says The Flash.

After the mixed reviews of Batman V Superman from earlier this year, it looks like Justice League might have taken some notes from the massive success of Deadpool’s light-hearted but serious comic book movie template. It already feels like this ensemble cast will lend itself to making up some ground in terms of likability. Ezra Miller’s The Flash is easily the “you-gotta-love-this-kid” character based on his one scene alone. Meanwhile, Aquaman will appeal to those burly, rugged Wolverine style fans. Both character types were missing from the sometimes confusing Batman V Superman.

Check out the full photo of the Justice League featuring our first detailed looks of The Flash, Cyborg, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman together in one place.


We still have a while before we get to hit theaters for Justice League. The superhero sure-to-be blockbuster is set to hit theaters November 17, 2017.

What did you think of your first look at the upcoming Justice League movie?

WB debuted a new trailer for Wonder Woman on Saturday morning at San Diego Comic-Con.

Gal Gadot and the cast of Wonder Woman introduced the new trailer, which offers a massive new look at the first female-led super hero movie (during this new wave of super hero madness, anyway). Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor and Gadot’s Diana Prince seem to have some great chemistry. And unsurprisingly, Wonder Woman gets up to a lot of ass-kicking in the three minute preview. Perhaps one of the coolest moments is when she fends off a lot of fire power, and one of the funniest moments comes at the end, when Diana equates Steve’s secretary to a slave. Watch below:

The movie is directed by Patty Jenkins, who has clearly done an amazing job bringing Wonder Woman to life with Gadot.

A new poster for Wonder Woman was also released, finally revealing her (colorful!) costume:


Wonder Woman hits theaters June 2, 2017. The film’s synopsis reads:

Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
