Coming this week: Hercules (2014 Film)

See Hercules in theaters July 25, 2014!

Finally, after many rough weeks, it’s time to shift into high gear with Hercules!

 

Produced by Paramount Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, it tells another mythical story about Zeus’s son, Hercules.

 

The official plot synopsis read; “Having completed his legendary twelve labors, Hercules, the Greek demigod, has his life as a sword-for-hire tested when the King of Thrace and his daughter seek his aid in defeating a tyrannical warlord.”

 

This wasn’t exactly a movie I was planning on seeing myself, but I’m pretty sure Dwayne Johnson will make it entertaining to watch.

 

This is one to look into, along with the movie Lucy.

 

Hercules is directed by Brett Ratner, and is set to be released July 25, 2014.

Despite the opening of three movies (Planes: Fire & Rescue, The Purge: Anarchy, and Sex Tape.) Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was still able to hold onto first place.

 

In first, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes scored an estimated $36 million, down nearly 50% from it’s opening weekend.

 

In second, the horror film The Purge: Anarchy got an estimated $28.3 million from it’s first weekend.

 

In third, Planes: Fire & Rescue earned an estimated $18 million from it’s first time out.

 

In fourth, Sex Tape earned an estimated $15 million from the weekend.

 

Rounding out the top 5, Transformers: Age of Extinction scored another $10 million.

 

Up next; it’s time to see how Lucy, Hercules, And So It Goes performs one week before Guardians of the Galaxy and Get on Up, stay tuned!

Blast From The Past: Twister (1996 Film)

Twister (1996 Film) is now available on DVD and Blue-Ray!

It’s time once again! Where I bring another Blast From The Past! This time it will be swirling in the clouds and coming over you at a fast speed, that being the movie Twister.

 

Produced by Warner Brothers Pictures and Universal Pictures, it tells a story about storm chasers chasing tornadoes for a living and trying to get their instruments inside the beast of the storm, so that they can save lives and create advance warning systems.

 

The story follows Jo Harding (Played by Helen Hunt.) and Bill Harding (Played by Bill Paxton.); as they battle the weather and battle themselves.

 

Let’s dive into the movie! It was an interesting, yet ridiculous movie. It’s special effects and scenery were spectacular, but the story lacked in certain departments.

 

Its cast was impressive, with Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt in the lead roles. Its director, Jan de Bont was very impressive.

 

The rating I would this movie is about 3.5 out of 5 stars. It had great special effects and technical sides, but the characters and story lacked.

Box Office Prediction: Planes: Fire & Rescue to perform big with small numbers!

Planes: Fire & Rescue is set to be released July 18, 2014!

Out of all the names coming out this week, it looks like Planes: Fire & Rescue will be able to fly in and steal the show!

 

But not at a big number; since the first Planes gathered a lot of negative reviews from critics and audiences alike, it looks like it might not perform on par with it’s predecessor.

 

Odd’s are it probably opens up to something small, but ahead of the curve. Unless Dawn of the Planet of the Apes drags it’s success into the second week, look for Planes to fly in.

 

The opening weekend I think will be probably around $25 – $45 million for Domestic.

 

Foreign markets, I don’t think Planes will make a lot of noise there either.

 

Planes: Fire & Rescue

Opening weekend: $35 million

Foreign markets: $25 million

Opening worldwide total: $60 million.

 

Make sure to stay tuned for next week’s San Diego Comic Con!

Coming this week: Planes: Fire & Rescue!

Planes: Fire & Rescue will hit theaters July 17, 2014!

After the hype of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Transformers: Age of Extinction, its time to see how the children’s movie coming out will do and whether it will steal the show, that being Planes: Fire & Rescue.

 

Produced by Walt Disney Pictures, it continues the adventures of Dusty Crophopper and his adventures. This time; it won’t be racing, but fire fighting.

 

I was a bit surprised when I found out they were doing a sequel, because I wasn’t really a fan of the first Planes.

 

From the looks of it, it’s a perfect movie to take your young kids to see. I’m beyond that so I probably won’t see it either.

 

Planes: Fire & Rescue is set to be released July 18, 2014!
