Marvel‘s ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: QUANTUMANIA debuts huge this weekend with $100 million domestically from 4,345 theatres. Though Critics weren’t in love with this first installment in the fifth phase of the MCU with 49% on the Tomatometer, that certainly isn’t stopping fans from showing their love and of the three Ant-Man films, this one comes out on-top for best opening, topping 2018’s Ant-Man and the Wasp’s $75 million bow.
Second goes to AVATAR: THE WAY OF WATER with $6.3 million from 2,675 theatres for 20th Century Studios. Its ten week run takes it to $657 million domestically.
Third is PUSS IN BOOTS: THE LAST WISH with $5.5 million from 3,012 theatres for Universal Pictures. Its run now is brought to $167.9 million over nine weeks.
Landing in fourth is MAGIC MIKE’S LAST DANCE with $5.6 million for Warner Bros. It is brought to $19 million in its second weekend out.
Rounding-out the Top Five is 80 FOR BRADY with $3.7 million, a tally of $33 million for Paramount Pictures.
It’s Super Bowl weekend, so those who are off to the Movies this weekend, really must want to see these releases! Of course, it’s all MAGIC MIKE’S LAST DANCE taking top spot at the Box Office in its debut with $11 million from 1,500 theatres only for Warner Bros. This final installment in the Franchise gets 46% on the Tomatometer.
AVATAR: THE WAY OF WATER still is thriving with $6.5 million, enough for second spot for 20th Century Studios. Its run is now brought to $646 million in North America.
In third is TITANIC’s 25th Anniversary re-release with $6.4 million from 2,464 theatres for Paramount Pictures. Domestically to date, the classic has made $665 million giving Director James Cameron two films in the Top Five this weekend.

Rounding this Top Five out is KNOCK AT THE CABIN with $4.6 million for Universal Pictures, a two-week tally of $23 million.
We’re sad to see Mike go! Hot off the release of its new Canadian Trailer for MAGIC MIKE’S LAST DANCE – coming to us Valentine’s Day 2023 – we get some new Canadian Posters also! Channing Tatum reprises the role of Mike and joining the Cast is Salma Hayek Pinault (House of Gucci).
“Magic” Mike Lane (Tatum) takes to the stage again after a lengthy hiatus, following a business deal that went bust, leaving him broke and taking bartender gigs in Florida. For what he hopes will be one last hurrah, Mike heads to London with a wealthy socialite (Hayek Pinault) who lures him with an offer he can’t refuse…and an agenda all her own. With everything on the line, once Mike discovers what she truly has in mind, will he—and the roster of hot new dancers he’ll have to whip into shape—be able to pull it off?
The film’s producers are Nick Wechsler, Gregory Jacobs, Tatum, Carolin and Peter Kiernan. Julie M. Anderson serves as executive producer.
Also starring with Tatum and Hayek Pinault are Ayub Khan Din (“Ackley Bridge”), newcomer Jemelia George, Juliette Motamed (“We Are Lady Parts”) and Vicki Pepperdine (“Johnny English Strikes Again”).
Soderbergh’s creative team behind the scenes includes production designer Pat Campbell (“The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself”), costume designer Christopher Peterson (“The Irishman”) and music supervisor Season Kent (“KIMI,” “Let Them All Talk”), with choreography by Alison Faulk and Luke Broadlick, both part of the “Magic Mike” franchise.
A Warner Bros. Pictures Presentation, “Magic Mike’s Last Dance” slides into theatres only in North America on February 10, 2023 and internationally beginning 8 February 2023, and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.

We honestly had no idea this was even a thing but we are glad to saw this! We loved Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike and steven-episode reality series FINDING MAGIC MIKE gives aspiring male dancers a chance to compete for a $100k prize and a chance to join the famed troupe.
Firstly, we love that in addition to amazing dancing, captured beautifully like a slick, gorgeous Music Video by Gareth Paul Cox, the Series really focuses on the storylines of our Contestants and their own personal growth journeys. Some have no experience as performers and just want to improve the chemistry of their relationships with their partners, some are failed Olympians, some are looking for a breakthrough into the Entertainment industry. There is a bit of diversity and inclusion in the storylines and we like the direction the Series goes. There is even a fire-throwing, bisexual Mormon competing and if that isn’t covering the spectrum, I don’t know what is!
The Series brings aboard some awesome Panelists like Nicole Scherzinger, Whitney Cummings, Robin Thede, Nikki Glaser and more. Serving as Mentor is Adam Rodriguez, who actually starred in the Magic Mike films, speaking to his own experience on the movies, knowing first-hand what to look for in these aspiring dancers. Choreographer Alison Faulk also serves as a Mentor and comes with a fun positivity that is infectious, as does Choreographer Luke Broadlick.
Some of these challenges the dancers are given are impossible including Aerial Dancing, a Shower Dance but these contestants are in it to win it and despite a spirit of competition, we see a bond of brotherhood among them. Be warned, FINDING MAGIC MIKE is tears, vomit, injury and a dash of egos. Where the final two land in terms of their progress is astonishing. We could not stop watching and quickly-zipped through these episodes and you won’t be disappointed, trust me!

We absolutely loved MAGIC MIKE, hence we are even more pumped about MAGIC MIKE XXL for all the obvious reasons! Although Gregory Jacobs takes over direction from Steven Soderbergh here, this looks to be every bit as sultry and entertaining as the first. This new Poster for perhaps one of the most anticipated Sequels in quite some time, cleverly places the words “COMING” right in Channing Tatum‘s nether-regions. Calm down, now Ladies…
Three years after Mike retired from stripping, he bumps into his former Kings of Tampa friends, who appear burned out from performing.
Ken (Matt Bomer), Big Dick Richie (Joe Manganiello) and Tito (Adam Rodriguez) collectively decide to throw in the towel and leave Myrtle Beach with a bang. While on the road to their final shows in Jacksonville and Savannah, the crew reunites with old friends, pick up a few new girls and a few new dance moves along the way.
Amber Heard, Andie MacDowell and Elizabeth Banks join the Cast.

See the brand new Trailer. We’re getting major Flashdance vibes from the beginning of it!
