Apes Together Strong. But is Caesar’s legion powerful enough to head off teen horror AND a returning superhero?

Good Friday morning, Mixers! It feels like only a week ago, we were talking about how Spider-Man: Homecoming was the movie to beat. And, let history repeat itself, as superhero movie tend to show strong, but diminished returns. Of course, this is also the weekend War for the Planet of the Apes opens, which means there’s a chance that Caesar might be victorious.

But, while WFTPOTA will most likely win the box office, Spider-Man: Homecoming is still strong and we doubt that Apes will reach the $100 million mark. And will Wish Upon just end up as collateral damage in this box office fight?

Enough prologue, let’s talk shop inside as we bring you our recurring Friday segment: Whaddya Got On Tap? Whaddya Got On Tap? – Week of 07/07/17

Spider-Man! Spider-Man! Does Whatever A Blockbuster Can!

Spider Man Homecoming

Call the Daily Bugle folks, we’ve got a Spider-Man picture on our hands! It’s time for Spider-Man: Homecoming to make its way to theaters! But, of course, that doesn’t mean there’s no other films showing at the market, so that leaves us with the usual duty of evaluating the box office market as we usually do. Refill your drinks, and prepare your spreadsheets, as we dive into what’s on tap for this first weekend in July. What do you say we get right to it on this last day of this short weekend?

Is Transformers: The Last Knight a shoo-in for number 1? Or is there more to the competition than meets the eye?

The Transformers are back, and not a moment too soon as June’s about to wrap without an impressive hit, besides Wonder Woman. And yet, here we are, staring down the barrel of a new Transformers movie, possibly the last to feature Michael Bay at the helm and Mark Wahlberg in the lead. But can it muster enough clout to take cinemas by storm? Or are the already declining returns going to show this film the door? Let’s take a look for ourselves, and find out what’s on tap!

What do a dead stripper, a bunch of race cars, a biopic, and a shark thriller have in common? They’re all trying to stop Wonder Woman from making a threepeat.

Two weeks of Amazonian bliss have been enjoyed by Wonder Woman at the box office, but this weekend sees a couple new contenders vying for the throne. Could anyone stop Diana from scoring one more glorious weekend before Transformers: The Last Knight swoops in and takes the trophy? We’re not sure, Mixers, as this week’s competition is pretty robust. Let’s take a look at who’s coming to town this weekend. Whaddya Got On Tap? – Week of 06/09/17

Wonder Woman soared to some lofty heights, but these three flicks are going to try and bring her back down to Earth.

If you’re like us, dear Mixers, you’re probably still reeling from the awe that Patty Jenkins’ masterwork that was Wonder Woman. But, as any box office analyst will tell you, rarely does a film perform that largely in a first weekend, without a huge drop the following weekend. Will Diana and company be able to stave off second place, as the new contenders of the box office close in? Can The Mummy or It Comes At Night scare up some big time dollars? Or will Megan Leavey feed this weekend’s competition to the dogs? There’s a lot of questions, and we’re going to answer all of them, in this week’s report.
