Big-budget sequels, reboots, and re-dos dominating the summer movie season is nothing new, but the extent of the sequel spinning is. Sequels coming out this summer also include 'Mad Max: Fury Road' and 'Fantastic Four.'
When women lead up action-driven films and franchises, it's usually one female against the world, but 'Insurgent,' which hits theaters on March 20, includes multiple female leads and supporting characters played by Shailene Woodley, Naomi Watts, Kate Winslet, and Octavia Spencer.
'Cinderella' grossed more than $70 million in North America. Interest in the movie was boosted by a 'Frozen' short that played before the film. Meanwhile, the Liam Neeson action movie 'Run' opened with only $11 million.
Neeson stars as a Brooklyn hit man, while Ed Harris portrays a mob boss and Vincent D'Onofrio is a veteran police detective. There's not a lot of fresh ground to this New York crime drama, but the movie offers simple, well-acted genre thrills.
