Box Office: ‘Kingsman 2’ Comes In Slightly Under Expectations

Kingsman Kingsman: The Golden Circle came in first at the box office this weekend with a total of $39 million, just under the projected total of $40 million. When added to the overseas total of $61 million, Kingsman is on pace for a $100 million global debut.

The Hollywood Reporter notes that IT, the reigning box office champion, came in second this week and now has totaled $266 million domestically. IT is the top R-rated horror grosser of all time, and because of this has led to the biggest September box office ever. Worldwide, the film sits at a total of $478 million.

Coming in third this week was underperformer The LEGO Ninjago Movie with only $21.2 million. The animated flick had high expectations following the $69.1 million and $53 million debuts of its predecessors The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Batman Movie respectively. Minus the star power of Batman, and the novelty of the first LEGO film, Ninjago looks to have a tougher time establishing box office dominance.

Directed by Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class, Kick Ass), Kingsman: The Golden Circle stars Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Julianne Moore, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges, Halle Berry and Pedro Pascal.

Kingsman: The Secret Service introduced the world to Kingsman – an independent, international intelligence agency operating at the highest level of discretion, whose ultimate goal is to keep the world safe. In Kingsman: The Golden Circle, our heroes face a new challenge. When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both founded. In a new adventure that tests their agents’ strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy…

Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters September 22, 2017. You can read a review of the film here.

Superhero Movies X-Men Man of Steel The Avengers

There happens to be an abundance of good to great comic book films. It’s a medium that can be challenging to adapt for the big screen. Making solid movies while staying true to the material is always challenging and it’s quite a feat when a filmmaker is able to accomplish something like that. Of course, there have been many superhero films that have been successful, but no film is truly perfect. Perfection is an impossible standard to achieve, but greatness is definitely attainable.

With any good or great film, there are bound to be a few bad moments and flaws, and the same can be said for the opposite. Some of these bad moments stick out more than others, but they’re pretty much always there, no matter how good the film is. While it’s easy to overlook these flaws, it’s also important to study them. With that in mind, I decided to write about some of the worst scenes in what are otherwise considered good superhero movies.
