‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’ and ‘Zombieland: Double Tap’ are Headliners in a Crowded Weekend

The domestic box office receipts for 'Maleficent 2' prove that the age-old question of "did anyone ask for this movie?" is never a good sign leading up to a release as the latest Disney failed to meet expectations, although its overseas gross did help to soften the blow.

In other news, Sony released another sequel and Martin Scorsese took another jab at Marvel movies. Call it just another week for The MovieBabble Podcast to cover!

‘Joker’ Continues to Soar, ‘The Addams Family’ Scares Up a Profit, and ‘Gemini Man’ Flounders Against its Massive Budget

'Joker' is quickly turning into a worldwide phenomenon as it crosses the $500 million mark worldwide, furthering entrenching the film as a talking point for the months to come. But what is its earning ceiling? We break down what the future may hold for the origin story -- which includes Nick going on a deep-dive into Chinese censorship boards.

In other news, 'The Addams Family' starts off its theatrical run with a solid gross, while 'Gemini Man' does the exact opposite (RIP Paramount). We discuss all this and much more (including 'El Camino'!) on this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

‘Joker’ Ignites Debate (and Box Office Success) as Martin Scorsese Upsets an Entire Fandom

A little indie film that literally no one has discussed in long, angry Twitter threads entitled 'Joker' earned the highest October opening weekend in history with its +$93.5 million haul, furthering entrenching the film as a BIG talking point...and a possible awards contender down the line. Brace yourself for the outrage!

Elsewhere, Martin Scorsese pissed off Marvel fans. All this and more in this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

Movies That Made Us Love Movies!

All of our film journeys our different. We arrive at some films at different points in our lives, and sometimes not at all. But there's always a select group of films for each person that gets the wheels turning. This week on Babble With Brennan, the crew discuss some of the films that made them interested in the art form, including some films that are still among their favorites, and even some they don't like anymore. From the painfully obvious, cliched films that everyone loves to some smaller classics, Brennan, Collin, and Nick share a little about their journeys for your own entertainment!

‘Abominable’ Melts and ‘Joker’ Continues to Cause Controversy Before its Release

It's a late-September tradition that an average to an above-average animated movie opens in theaters, and that trend continued this week with 'Abominable', the latest effort from DreamWorks. However, 'Abominable' may have some tough sledding ahead with its lackluster box office take.

Elsewhere, 'Downton Abbey', 'Hustlers', and 'It Chapter Two' all excel, while 'Judy' seems primed for an Oscar run. Oh, and there's a tiny little movie called 'Joker' coming out next week, and it seems like everyone has an opinion on it. We discuss all this and more on this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

‘Downton Abbey’ Makes History, ‘Ad Astra’ Impresses, and the Awards Race Begins to Take Shape

It turns out that 'Downton Abbey' fandom is alive and well, as the film adaptation of the popular TV show became Focus Features' highest opening weekend ever with its $31 million, hinting at a new trend in TV-to-film adaptations for studios.

And thanks to both 'Ad Astra' and 'Rambo: Last Blood', we longer have to talk about 'The Lion King' as part of the top five (thank the heavens!!!), as the two films open right near each other. Nick and Brennan discuss these two films -- with a bit of an extended conversation on 'Ad Astra' -- as well as 'Hustlers' continued success and a look at awards season as it begins to take shape. All this and more in this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

And while 'It Chapter Two' walked away with another solid week, the other big story of the week was the awards coming out of TIFF. We cover all this and more in this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

‘It Chapter Two’ Floats Past $90 Million While the Venice Film Festival Confuses Us All

As expected, 'It Chapter Two' started the fall movie season off with a bang, despite tracking behind 'It' (2017) in overall numbers. However, we discuss why this sequel did not work as well as its predecessor in a spoiler discussion of the film.

However, the most curious news of the week was 'Joker' earning the top prize at the Venice Film Festival with Roman Polanski's 'An Officer and a Spy' getting second-place honors. Collin and Nick discuss what this means for the growing Oscar race along with much more in this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

Labor Day Weekend, Summer Rundown Special

Wait, so you're telling me that movies like 'Don't Let Go', 'Bennett's War', and 'Killerman' don't excite you?

Luckily for everyone, we have no interest in discussing these films either, so we're doing a little something different this time around by looking back at the summer movie season as a whole. What were our favorite movies? How about our most disappointing? What dog voiced by an actor did we like the best? We tackle all this and more on this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!
