It’s Monday which means its time for the weekend box office report brought to you by our friends at AMC theatres. Some angry birds should now be very happy as Sony’s animated movie, Angry Birds, took the No 1 spot at the box office on its first weekend in theatres pulling in $39 million dollars. Down 56% in its third weekend in release, Captain America Civil War took in $33.1 million dollars for the No 2 spot, crossing 1 billion dollars worldwide in the process and becoming the 25th film all time to hit the milestone. Neighbors 2 Sorority Rising took the No 3 spot with $21.8 million dollars, less than half of the $49 million launch of the original Neighbors two years ago. The other new release, The Nice Guys, pulled in $11.3 million for the No 4 spot. And at No 5, The Jungle Book with $11 million.
Paramount Pictures has released the newest trailer for Star Trek Beyond, the Justin Lin directed third movie in the rebooted Star Trek franchise starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Idris Elba, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin and Sofia Boutella. The sequel, from a script by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung, finds the crew in the midst of their five-year mission when they run across a villainous alien played by Elba. The trailer premiered during a fan event in Los Angeles where it was announced that Star Trek Beyond will also have its world premiere at San Diego Comic-Con on July 20th.
Disney has released the first sneak peek at their upcoming live-action re-telling of Beauty and the Beast, giving audiences a tiny glimpse at the highly anticipated film based on the animated classic. The film stars Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast. Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson also star.

After Marvel officially confirmed Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson and Karl Urban would be joining Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins in Thor Ragnarok, a new piece of concept art was released, featuring a look at what appears to be the character of Hela, played by Blanchett, a powerful villainess who was appointed goddess and ruler of the realms of the dead.
Since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice proved to be a disappointment for Warner Bros. Pictures by not pulling in as much box office as they hoped, the studio is really banking on the success of Suicide Squad to help turn things around. And It looks as though Warner Bros is on the right track with some early reactions hitting the web following a test screening.
In advance of the July release of Star Trek Beyond, it looks as though Paramount is going to try to get itself beyond a serious problem it’s having with the passionate fanbase of Trekkies. During the Star Trek fan event this past weekend, producer JJ Abrams announced that the studio will be dropping the contentious lawsuit against a fan film production known as Star Trek: Axanar, with Abrams quoted as saying the litigation was not the appropriate way to deal with the fans.
