Your Weekly Movie Roundup

Get the fix on all the flicks–from indies to Marvel to awards contenders, from box office to Rotten Tomatoes to industry news—before making your picks.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom took first place last weekend at the box office with another colossal opening for the franchise, stealing some buzz from the previous week’s smash hit, Pixar’s The Incredibles 2, which broke the record for a debut box office weekend for an animated movie. This week, we saw the releases of Sicario: Day of the Soldado, the basketball comedy Uncle Drew, as well as the limited release of Leave No Trace, currently pulling a friggin’ 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Even before the official release of Sicario sequel, producer Trent Luckinbill had expressed interest in bringing back Emily Blunt (who starred in the first Sicario) for a future installment. While Lionsgate hasn’t green-lit anything yet, and the sequel only received tepid reviews, it’s a good bet that if Emily is on board, it’ll happen.

In other news, Ocean’s 8, the female-led Ocean’s Eleven (and Twelve, and Thirteen) spin-off, continues going strong, topping $100M after three weeks. Does that mean we’ll be getting another Ocean’s flick? (Ocean’s 9, I guess?)

Any MoviePass subscribers out there still? How long is this going to last? The service launched back in 2011, and fees sunk to an all-time low in 2017, as an unlimited pass set you back only $9.99/month. Sounds too good to be true right? Well, yes. As other theaters launch rival ticket services and MoviePass flirts with price hikes, how sustainable is the business?
