‘The Secret Life of Pets 2′ and ‘Dark Phoenix’ Open Up a Slow Weekend for Sequels

The weekend proved to be pretty brutal for sequels, as 'The Secret Life of Pets 2' and 'Dark Phoenix' suffered mightily, albeit for different reasons. Among other things, Collin, Nick, and Brennan discuss the failures of these two films -- with SPOILER discussion of 'Dark Phoenix' included -- the life habits of Harrison Ford, and our favorite X-Men movies. All this and more in this week's episode!

‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ Proves that Godzilla is King of the Box Office…At Least by a Little

The latest film in Legendary's MonsterVerse left much to be desired, despite plenty of monster action. Still, it took the top spot at the box office, raking in a solid international number in its first weekend. But will it have the legs to continue its success in the coming weeks? Or will challengers knock it down? We discuss this and much more in this week episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

‘Aladdin’ Soars to 1st Place Over Memorial Day Weekend

'Aladdin' has a green splat on Rotten Tomatoes, but that didn't stop it from earning over $100 million at the domestic box office over the Memorial Day weekend. We dive into all that Aladdin has to offer, from horrifying CGI to memberberries.

In other news, both 'Brightburn' and 'Booksmart' opened near each other at the four and five spots in the box office. The group covers their prospects moving forward, and also a look ahead to next week's crop of films in this episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

‘John Wick: Chapter 3′ Takes Aim At ‘Endgame’ (Ep. 19)

'John Wick: Chapter 3' had sword fights on motorcycles, Keanu Reeves on a horse, and attack dogs -- what else could you possibly need in a movie? It seems that many felt that way, as 'John Wick 3' was the lucky film to finally overtake 'Endgame at the box office with a strong $57 million and change, almost doubling the opening weekend of 'John Wick: Chapter 2."

But not everything was as lucky as the Keanu Reeves-vehicle. We unpack all the hits and the serious misses (sorry, 'The Sun is Also a Star') on this week's episode!

‘Detective Pikachu’ Gives ‘Endgame’ a Run for Its Money (Ep. 18)

'Endgame' is well on its way to passing 'Avatar' to become the highest grossing movie of all time. But in the meantime, 'Detective Pikachu' gave the superhero giant a run for its (literal) money and earned back its production budget and then some in its first weekend at the box office. What do future weeks hold for this film? Will it have good legs? Will 'UglyDolls' make a serious comeback and beat it next week? Is 'Poms' the greatest film of our generation? All of this and more in this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Becomes the Second Highest Grossing Movie of All Time (Ep. 17)

'Endgame', the little engine that could, continues to rack up crazy numbers after becoming the second highest grossing movie of all time in just two weekends.

But the question remains: does it have the energy to beat 'Avatar'? Collin and Brennan discuss this possibility, as well as films in the coming weeks that could hurt its chances.

Elsewhere, the team breaks down 'Long Shot', 'The Intruder', and 'UglyDolls' which all finished right around each other...and VERY far away from 'Endgame'.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Breaks the Internet and Every Major Box Office Record (Ep. 16)

'Avengers: Endgame' is the movie event of the decade, maybe even of all-time if the box office receipts continue as they are currently after one week. The culmination of everything in the MCU so far broke every major box office record, earning approximately $350 million DOMESTICALLY. We discuss this Earth shattering total and more, including whether or not it has a chance of beating Avatar's worldwide box office record in this week's episode of the MovieBabble Podcast!

Also, there were a few other movies that made some money, so we felt obligated to talk about them.

‘Hellboy’ Fails to Bring the Heat (Ep. 15)

You remember the Guillermo del Toro 'Hellboy' movies. They were whimsical and darkly odd (just like every other one of del Toro's movies). But now we have 2019's 'Hellboy'...oof. The reboot failed in just about every respect, earning a Rotten Tomatoes score of less than 20% and losing to 'Little' at the box office. Pour one out for Lionsgate.

In other realms of movie news, we have a new Star Wars trailer! It has all the Star Wars-y things, including Palpatine??? All this and more in this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

‘Shazam!’ Laughs Its Way to the Bank (Ep. 14)

'Shazam!' was a delightful flick, and it led to what Warner Bros. will most likely call a delightful return on their investment. It appears that DC is finally on the right track...for now. (Don't screw it up!)

In other news, 'Pet Sematary' left audiences a little cold, which will probably lead to lower grosses in the coming weeks. And 'Dumbo' continues to exist...and not much else. We break this and more down on this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast! (Also includes bonus coverage on STX Entertainment and A24 that didn't want/need but are getting anyway.)

How High Can ‘Dumbo’ Fly? (Ep. 13)

'Dumbo' flew into theaters this weekend (sorry, bad pun) and wrestled the top spot away from Jordan Peele's 'Us.' Just one question: did it have to cost $170 million? The team breaks down the curious case that is Tim Burton's 'Dumbo' as well as Nick's odd and overzealous love for Harmony Korine's 'The Beach Bum' and the messy Twitter situation that surrounds Pure Flix's 'Unplanned'... and so much more! (Seriously, it'll change your life.)
