Winners and Losers


Disney for the second month in a row hit nearly 1 Billion dollars in box office money with The Jungle Book. Proving that not only is their live-action trend popular and financially lucrative, but well received by critics and public alike.

Melissa McCarthy proved with The Boss that even if her movie is sub par, people will see it because she is in it.  However, this may be a win so she can make another solo film, but she will need to improve critically.


Ratchet and Clank continued proving that even animated video game inspired movies aren’t very good.
