It earned $2.2 million from Thursday night previews at 2,400 theaters, an improvement over the $870,000 made by its predecessor. It made $11 million on its first day, nearly totaling the $14.4 million the first film made in its entire opening weekend. It went on to open to $30.4 million, more than double the opening weekend of the original film and finishing third at the box office behind The Lego Batman Movie ($53 million) and Fifty Shades Darker ($46.6 million).

Critical Response via Wikipedia

On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 89% based on 197 reviews, and an average rating of 7.3/10. The site’s critical consensus reads, “John Wick: Chapter 2 does what a sequel should—which in this case means doubling down on the non-stop, thrillingly choreographed action that made its predecessor so much fun.” On Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating, the film has a score of 75 out of 100, based on 43 critics, indicating “generally favorable reviews”. Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of “A–” on an A+ to F scale.

Scott Tobias of Uproxx said the film improved upon the original, writing: “For better or worse—though mostly for better—it’s a full-scale assault on the senses, constantly pushing itself to greater feats of excess. At this rate, a third John Wick might trigger the apocalypse.” Mike Rougeau of IGN gave the film an 8.5/10, stating that it “takes joy in expanding on the original’s lore”, and praised the film as a vast improvement of its predecessor, in terms of action set pieces, fight choreography, cinematography, and writing. Peter Travers of Rolling Stone called it “the real deal” and “pure cinema”.

Critical Response via Wikipedia
On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 99% based on 280 reviews, with an average rating of 8.3/10. The site’s critical consensus reads, “Funny, scary, and thought-provoking, Get Out seamlessly weaves its trenchant social critiques into a brilliantly effective and entertaining horror/comedy thrill ride.” It is one of ten films to earn a 99% (six other films) or 100% (three films) rating with 100 or more reviews (it held a 100% approval rating after the first 139 reviews on the site were registered). On Metacritic, the film has a score of 84 out of 100, based on 48 critics, indicating “universal acclaim”. Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of “A–” on an A+ to F scale.[35]

Richard Roeper gave the film 3½ stars, saying, “The real star of the film is writer-director Jordan Peele, who has created a work that addresses the myriad levels of racism, pays homage to some great horror films, carves out its own creative path, has a distinctive visual style—and is flat-out funny as well.” Keith Phipps of Uproxx praised the cast and Peele’s direction, noting: “That he brings the technical skill of a practiced horror master is more of a surprise. The final thrill of Get Out—beyond the slow-building sense of danger, the unsettling atmosphere, and the twisty revelation of what’s really going on—is that Peele’s just getting started.” Mike Rougeau of IGN gave the film 9/10, and wrote: “Get Out’s whole journey, through every tense conversation, A-plus punchline and shocking act of violence, feels totally earned. And the conclusion is worth each uncomfortable chuckle and moment of doubt.” Peter Travers of Rolling Stone rated Get Out a 3.5/4, and called it: ” a jolt-a-minute horrorshow laced with racial tension and stinging satirical wit.” Scott Mendelson of Forbes praised how the film captures the current zeitgeist and called it a “modern American horror classic”.

Release of the week – Silence (MA15+)
Available 14 June – Outdoor from 14 September 2017.
Screen Shot 2017-05-22 at 6.20.33 am

Box Office via Wikipedia
Silence grossed $7.1 million in the United States and Canada and $8.9 million in other territories for a worldwide total of $16 million, against a production budget of $40 million.

In North America, the film had its expansion alongside the openings of Monster Trucks, The Bye Bye Man, and Sleepless, as well as the wide expansions of Live by Night and Patriots Day, and was expected to gross $4–6 million from 747 theaters in its four-day MLK opening weekend. It ended up debuting to $1.9 million (a four-day total of $2.3 million), finishing 15th at the box office. Deadline.com attributed the film’s low opening to its 161-minute runtime and lack of major award nominations to create buzz.

Similarly, The Hollywood Reporter noted that, unlike some of the other films released, Silence was playing in fewer cinemas and had been released at a time when the marketplace had “too many adult dramas” and “a lack of interest in the subject matter”.

Critical Response via Wikipedia
On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 85% based on 220 reviews, and an average rating of 7.6/10. The site’s critical consensus reads, “Silence ends Martin Scorsese’s decades-long creative quest with a thoughtful, emotionally resonant look at spirituality and human nature that stands among the director’s finest works.” On Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating, the film has a score of 79 out of 100, based on 48 critics, indicating “generally favorable reviews”.

Scoring 95% on Rotten Tomatoes ‘Paterson’ is our release of the week

Release of the week – Paterson (M)
Available Now.
Screen Shot 2017-05-22 at 6.17.50 am

Box Office via Wikipedia
On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 95% based on 193 reviews, with an average rating of 8.6/10. The site’s critical consensus reads, “Paterson adds another refreshingly unvarnished entry to Jim Jarmusch’s filmography — and another outstanding performance to Adam Driver’s career credits.” On Metacritic, the film has a score of 90 out of 100, based on 41 critics, indicating “universal acclaim”.

Todd McCarthy of the The Hollywood Reporter gave the film a positive review, writing: “A mild-mannered, almost startlingly undramatic work that offers discreet pleasures to longtime fans of the New York indie-scene veteran, who can always be counted on to go his own way.” Eric Kohn of Indiewire.com also gave the film a positive review writing : “But “Paterson” has too much clarity of mind to fall into a similar category. The story builds to an accidental circumstance that, on the surface, might not seem like a big deal — but in the context of Paterson’s tiny universe, resonates with tragic connotations. The brilliantly cryptic finale explores what it means to work back from personal setbacks to find a new source of inspiration. It’s an apt statement from Jarmusch, a filmmaker who continues to surprise and innovate while remaining true to his singular voice, and who here seems to have delivered its purest manifestation.”
