‘Hobbs and Shaw’ Scares Off ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’ From the Number One Spot

Somehow, five movies opened in over 1,000 theaters this weekend, meaning that some of them were bound to fall through the cracks. The main losers were 'Brian Banks' and 'The Kitchen', two films that will quickly disappear from your purview. However, both 'Scary Stories' and 'Dora and the Lost City of Gold' opened strong behind 'Hobbs and Shaw' which stayed in the first spot. We cover this and more on this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

‘Hobbs and Shaw’ Opens Strong as the Summer Blockbuster Season Ends

'Hobb and Shaw' is plenty stupid, but it also made plenty of money in its first weekend, earning $180 million around the world ahead of its Chinese opening in a few weeks. Though its budget is a hefty $200 million, it should benefit from limited blockbuster competition until September.

We're into the middle of August now, which means that we're hitting a weird middle ground between the summer and awards seasons. Many smaller and independent movies will come out in the next few weeks, but which will become successful? We discuss all this and more in this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ is Tarantino’s Highest Opening Weekend

Did you hear? Quentin Tarantino has a new movie out! 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' is a bit of a departure for the director, as the film is far more relaxed and thoughtful than his previous few outings. And while that presentation might not lead to solid legs at the box office, Sony made sure that the film opened strong. In fact, 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' is Quentin's highest opening EVER.

Oh yeah, and Disney continues to make ALL the money. (What else is new?) All this and more in this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

‘The Lion King’ Roars its Way to the Top and Disney Keeps Winning

Have you heard of this company called Disney? You should have, because they might be around for awhile.

The media titan had another banner week at the box office and in the news as the remake of 'The Lion King' scored the highest opening weekend EVER for an animated film (it's CGI-animated, not live-action). But also, Comic-Con was this week, and Marvel made a BIG splash by announcing their lineup of films for Phase Four, including 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness', 'Thor: Love and Thunder', and 'Blade' with Mahershala Ali, just to name a few. We discuss all this and more on this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

Ranking All the Spider-Man Films

With 'Far From Home' doing excellent business, we're doing a bit of a Spider-Man redux and ranking all of the Spider-Man films to date (not including the weird made-for-TV movie from 1977 or any of the weird Turkish knock-offs, because we like fun around here.)

In this second episode of 'Babble With Brennan' on this feed, Brennan is joined by notable Spidey fan and MovieBabble contributor Collin Willis to break everything down, from the highs of 'Spider-Man 2' to whatever Jamie Foxx was doing in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2.'

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ and ‘Toy Story 4′ Hold Against ‘Crawl’ and ‘Stuber’

I would love to try the drugs you were on if you made the claim that 'Crawl' and 'Stuber' would ignite the sleepy summer box office. The two wide releases of the week opened to moderately small numbers, while 'Far From Home' and 'Toy Story 4' continue their strong theatrical runs.

But the sleepy summer has been extra sleepy, so the gang looks at future weeks and the fruit that they may bear, including 'The Lion King', 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood', 'Hobbs and Shaw', and a few of Nick's hipster-indie picks. All in this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

‘Spider-Man: Far from Home’ Swings Past ‘Toy Story 4′ into First Place at the Box Office

Breaking news: The MCU is financially viable. 'Far From Home' opened to slightly under $600 million worldwide over the long Fourth of July weekend, acting as both a palate cleanser to 'Endgame' and the finale of Phase 3 in the MCU. It was easily the highest grossing movie of the weekend, and it is well on its way to becoming the first Spider-Man movie to break the $1 billion mark.

In other news, Ari Aster and A24's 'Midsommar' opened, quickly becoming the summer's "holy shit, did you see what this movie did?" movie. The gang discusses the film's quest for profitability and so much more on this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

The Best Movies of 2019 So Far

This is the inaugural episode of Babble With Brennan, a new running series on The MovieBabble Podcast feed hosted by MovieBabble contributor Brennan Dubé. The series will run bi-weekly, and Brennan will lead discussion in a wide variety of topics. We start today with a look at the best movies of 2019 so far, broken down into three categories: surprisingly great movies of 2019, under the radar hits of 2019, and the best box office hits of 2019 (and a few honorable mentions for good measure).

Brennan and Nick go deep on plenty of movies, and Nick (once again) loses his mind over The Beach Bum. This and so much more on this episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

‘Toy Story 4′ Continues at Number One While ‘Annabelle Comes Home’ to Second Place

Surprising news: 'Toy Story 4' is a big deal. The animated tale continued its reign at the number one spot, inching its worldwide total to almost $500 million. Another hefty sum for Pixar. (What else is new?)

But we had other movies to discuss, including 'Annabelle Comes Home' and 'Yesterday', which had differing results in their first weeks. We unpack it all in this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!
