Weekend Box Office: Green Lantern Slips But Pixar Keeps Winning

It was a rather interesting weekend for box office as several studios took many risks. You would think its an off weekend that isn't full of much interest. Due to the fact Green Lantern was the only big budget release still counting numbers I would usually agree? However that wasn't the case.

TMP’s Second Opinion: Green Lantern

The Blackest Night is upon us! Cower and tremble, for there is no one to save us. Director Martin Campbell has birthed a twisted and deformed child, stillborn yet a deadly threat to any siblings still gestating in the womb. Not only has a potentially great franchise been killed before it was even given a chance to live, but Green Lantern has done what every super-villain in the pantheon has been attempting for the last eight decades: it has killed the super-heroes.

TMP Reviews: Green Lantern

DC’s first big franchise starter (outside of Batman and Superman) is finally here.  Is it really as bad as the critics are saying, or is there something worthwhile in the comic book adaptation?  TheMoviePool is here to help sort through it all.

The 10 Best Superhero Origin Stories Ever Put to Film

When it comes to superhero movies, nothing is more important than the origin story.  It sets up not just the character, but the tone and future plot points of the franchise to come (or in some cases, the movie itself).  If you botch this, then you’ve already botched the entire franchise potential (as seen from such classics as Daredevil or Punisher). And for a movie like this week’s Green Lantern, first impressions are everything.  If they don’t like the first outing, why would audiences come back for a second? Green Lantern needs to nail its origin story if it hopes to become the next big superhero franchise.  Here are eight other origin stories that Green Lantern should try to emulate if it wants to hit its mark.

Box Office: Predicting the Highest Grossing Films of Summer 2011

Summer 2011 is huge. I've said it once, and I will say it again. Because of the somewhat "overstuffed" nature of the season, it's rather natural for some films to be pushed out of the public eye. Not every wide release this year will make $200 million dollars. They could be huge movies, but they will eventually become the casualty of a crowded marketplace. It's sad, but true. So which films will rise up to the top of the mound and conquer the Summer Box Office? Here's our picks.
