'A Quiet Place' Delivers Not So Quiet $50 Million Opening
With a $50 million debut, Paramount's A Quiet Place finished atop the weekend box office in impressive fashion and while Universal's Blockers didn't deliver even half of what A Quiet Place did, the film's $21 million debut was a solid start for the low budget R-rated comedy. The weekend also saw a very strong hold for Warner Bros.'s Ready Player One and Disney and Marvel's Black Panther topped Titanic this weekend to become the third highest grossing domestic release of all-time.

'Black Panther' Dominates Lackluster March at the Box Office
Following a record-breaking February, which saw the February domestic box office top $1 billion for the first time ever, March saw a -24% decline compared to 2017 with calendar grosses totaling $891 million. One thing didn't change in March, however, and that was the #1 film as Black Panther not only dominated the month of February, but was also responsible for nearly 25% of March's overall gross. In fact, thanks to Black Panther, even though March was such a down month, the first quarter o...

A Solid Redefinition of the Horror Flick
A review of 28 Days Later ...
by Matt Mason

Don't get me wrong, it's still a horror flick, with zombies eating the hell out of you, but it's a big leap from scary movies which are scary only because the door keeps opening as the music swells only to be that annoying pet again.

Director: Danny Boyle

Stars: Cillian Murphy, Naomie Harris, Noah Huntley, Brendan Gleeson, Megan Burns

Rating: R

Release: 06-27-2003

Time: 112 minutes

Buy Movie at No, in this movie, if the door opens as the music swells, ain't nothing cute about it, it's a freaking zombie what wants to eat your face to a bloody pulp.

Basically, England gets overrun by a genetically engineered virus called Rage which, maybe a minute after exposure to infected blood (which the infected spew out of their mouths pretty liberally) turns the victim into a twitching, angry track star who'll chase your butt down and bite you bad.

The hero, then, is a guy waking from a coma in a locked hospital room trying to figure out why the city appears to be empty.

The whole thing is shot on digital video, giving it a more alarming home video like look, and the scenes of starkly empty London streets are haunting.

The movie, then, takes its time, letting suspense authentically build in a way far scarier than any roller coaster scarefest manipulating screams out of you. This one doesn't go out of its way to be scary, it just is.
