One year after Lionsgate launched one of the few successful young adult franchises the second film in the series, The Divergent Series: Insurgent, reconnected with pretty much the same audience the first one had. Other newcomers imploded on impact with only last weekend’s champ Cinderella hitting double digit millions.

Opening almost identically to the original Divergent the latest in the series, The Divergent Series: Insurgent brought in an estimated $54M this weekend from 3,875 theaters for a per screen average of $13,942. By comparison, Divergent opened to $54.6M from 3,936 theaters for a per screen average of $13,874. My guess is that the final numbers will fall by a little, but this is a strong opening for the sequel with still two films to go to finish out the book trilogy. 3D surcharges certainly helped the numbers, as the first film wasn’t released in the format, but with a CinemaScore of an A-, it looks like the audience who enjoyed the first film enjoyed the further tales of Shailene Woodley and company. Overseas the film brought in an estimated $47M from 76 markets, opening at #1 in 66 of those territories.

Falling 49% in its second weekend was the latest Disney live-action reinvention, Cinderella, which brought in an estimated $34.5M bringing its total up to $122M. Its drop was just about on par with last summer’s Maleficent which fell 50.6% in its second weekend. At its current pace Cinderella should be able to break the $210M barrier domestically. Overseas the film grossed an estimated $41.1M bringing its worldwide total to $253M.

Third place belonged to Liam Neeson’s latest “Taken but not Taken” film, Run all Night which brought in $5.1M, according to estimates, a fall of 53.6% from last weekend, bringing its cume up to $19.7M. A final gross in the area of $30-35M is likely, which would be among the worst of this post-Taken action films.

Opening poorly in fourth place was the Sean Penn-led The Gunmen which shot up $5M from 2,816 theaters for a per screen average of $1,779. While Penn isn’t known for opening a film this has to be seen as a disaster from the perspective of distributor Open Road Films. Luckily the production budget of $40M wasn’t high, but it’ll be nearly impossible to even hit that low number. The CinemaScore was a B- showing that the few people that saw the film didn’t like what they saw.

A third straight action film landed in fifth this weekend as Kingsman: The Secret Service took in an estimated $4.6M in its sixth weekend, bringing its total up to $114.5M.

Another new film debuted in sixth place with the Christian-themed Do You Believe? calling up an estimated $4M from 1,320 theaters for a per screen average of $3,030. The creators of this film were behind last year’s surprise hit God’s Not Dead which opened this same weekend in 2014 to $9.2M on its way to a strong $60.7M finale. It looks like Do You Believe? might be lucky to hit even one third of that number, but if the production budget was anything like the $2M spent on God’s Not Dead, the film could still be pretty successful.

Holdovers took the remaining slots in the top 10. The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel ordered up an estimated $3.45M in its third weekend, bringing its total up to $24M. Eighth place belonged to the Will Smith starrer, Focus which took in another $3.3M, according to estimates, bringing its total up to $49M. In ninth place was Chappie which took in an estimated $2.65M this weekend for a total so far of $28M. And rounding out the top ten was everyone’s favorite undersea sponge, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge out of Water which soaked up an estimated $2.35M bringing its total to a robust $158.8M.

The top ten films grossed $118.9M which was down 8% from last year when Divergent opened at number one with $54.6M; and down 6.5% from 2013 when The Croods opened at number one with $43.6M.

Insurgent

28%

Rating: PG-13, for intense violence and action throughout, some sensuality, thematic elements and brief language.

The sequel to last year’s Divergent might be even more violent and intense than its predecessor. It’s also oppressively dour. But because the film carries a PG-13 rating — to make it accessible to the tweens and young teens who also were the target audience for the YA novel source material — there’s minimal bloodshed accompanying the massive gunfire. This time, the rebellious Tris (Shailene Woodley) and her boyfriend, Four (Theo James), are hiding out with some other folks, trying to figure out how best to take down the totalitarian dictator Jeanine (Kate Winslet). But Jeanine is after Tris, too, to put her through a series of simulations which will open a magical box that contains an important message, or something. This sometimes means Tris must endure harrowing imagery and fight dangerous battles. In real life, she and Four also have sex, but we don’t really see anything; the act is implied through kissing and naked backs. If your kids have seen the first film, they’re in for a lot of the same here.

New On DVD:



Penguins of Madagascar

73%

Rating: PG, for mild action and some rude humor.

The playful penguins who stole every scene in the Madagascar series have gotten a movie of their own. Part origin story and part spin-off, it explains how Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private became globetrotting super spies and it follows them on an all-new adventure. John Malkovich lends his rich voice to the shape-shifting bad guy they’re after: an angry octopus who’s pretending to be a mad scientist. He kidnaps penguins from zoos and aquariums around the world with plans to inject them with a serum that will turn them into hideous versions of themselves. He hopes they’ll seem less appealing to the masses, but they actually become more silly than frightening. The penguins end up in several dangerous situations but they always find a way to escape. There’s a lot of silly spanking among the animals as well as some fart jokes and flatulence puns, but it’s the kind of harmless, puerile humor that routinely cracks kids up. Nothing here is shocking or inappropriate. This is totally suitable for all ages, although a lot of the pop-culture gags are just for us grown-ups.



Annie

28%

Rating: PG, for some mild language and rude humor.

This movie is terrible. But if it’s the only family-friendly film available for rental… well, it’s still terrible. It’s a modern-day version of the enduring stage musical, which has been moved from the Great Depression to present day Manhattan. This time, the plucky orphan Annie (Quvenzhane Wallis) moves in with a billionaire cell-phone mogul (Jamie Foxx) and melts his heart… in song! The celebration of materialism is seriously amped up here, which is sort of depressing. Annie enjoys a helicopter ride around New York City and hands out free phones to her foster-kid friends. Cameron Diaz is rather shrill and inept as Miss Hannigan but she’s not as intimidating as she’s been in previous versions; she’s more pathetic than anything else. And Annie briefly finds herself in danger when she goes off with a couple who pretend to be her birth parents, but she’s not hurt in any way. Suitable for all ages.



Exodus: Gods and Kings

30%

Rating: PG, for violence including battle sequences and intense images.

Mature tweens and older will probably be fine watching this massive biblical epic from director Ridley Scott, which makes his Oscar-winning Gladiator look like a tiny indie by comparison. With the use of massive visual effects, Scott tells the Old Testament story of Moses leading hundreds of thousands of Hebrew slaves out of Egypt to freedom. That means plagues — lots and lots of plagues — from frogs to locusts to boils. (The boils are especially gross.) And because everything has gotten so chaotic and overpopulated under the reign of the inept Ramses (Joel Edgerton), slaves are thrown into enormous fires to thin out the city. There are also several elaborate battle scenes, perilous chariot chases and a pummeling wall of water once Moses (Christian Bale) has finished parting the Red Sea. And be warned: besides the violence and the subject matter, the film runs nearly two and a half hours, which might be quite a slog for younger viewers.

This week at the movies, we’ve got a rebellious teen (Insurgent, starring Shailene Woodley and Kate Winslet) and a repentant assassin (The Gunman, starring Sean Penn and Javier Bardem). What do the critics have to say?



Insurgent

28%

Shailene Woodley is well on her way to becoming one of Hollywood’s brightest stars. However, critics say there’s only so much she can do to save Insurgent, a middling middle chapter with frenetic action sequences but little narrative cohesion or character development. This time out, Tris (Woodley) and her fellow Divergents are on the run from evil overlord Jeanine Matthews (Kate Winslet), who wants to exterminate the rebels and take control of futuristic Chicago’s various factions. The pundits say Insurgent is a definite step back for the franchise, as its excessive violence and confusing story overwhelm a terrific cast. (Watch our video interview with Woodley and co-stars Theo James, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, and Octavia Spencer, and click through our gallery of young adult novels that have been adapted to film.)



The Gunman

16%

The veteran actor-shooting-people action subgenre is all the rage these days, and The Gunman has two things to set it apart from the pack: geopolitics and Sean Penn. Unfortunately, critics say it’s pretty generic otherwise, with a predictable plot and a shortage of energy. Years after carrying out a hit in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Jim Terrier (Penn) is working for a humanitarian organization when he discovers he’s the target of a shadowy organization — and that his ex has fallen into its clutches. The pundits say The Gunman benefits greatly from its scenic locations, but otherwise, this is a so-so thriller that doesn’t live up to its lofty ambitions. (Check out Penn’s best-reviewed films here.)

What’s On TV:


Despite cast and broadcast changes, Community (Certified Fresh at 91 percent) manages to remain at the top of its quirky class.


An amusing variation on the zombie trend, iZombie (Certified Fresh at 90 percent) is refreshingly different, if perhaps too youth-oriented to resonate with adult audiences.

Also opening this week in limited release:

  • Metalhead, a dramedy about a girl who immerses herself in heavy metal as a way of dealing with the death of her older brother, is at 100 percent.
  • Spring, starring Lou Taylor Pucci in a horror film about an American backpacker who strikes up a relationship with an Italian woman who’s harboring a shocking secret, is at 95 percent.
  • Amour Fou, a drama about writer Heinrich von Kleist and his attempt to get a society woman to join him in a suicide pact, is at 94 percent.
  • Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter, starring Rinko Kikuchi in a drama about a woman who leaves behind her life in Japan to search for the buried cash in Fargo, is Certified Fresh at 89 percent.
  • Backcountry, a thriller about a couple that gets lost while hiking in the remote Canadian wilderness, is at 83 percent.
  • Jauja, starring Viggo Mortensen in a period drama about a Danish engineer who goes searching for his daughter after she runs off with a soldier, is at 78 percent.
  • She’s Lost Control, a drama about a sex surrogate whose life is thrown into disarray when she gets too close to one of her clients, is at 75 percent.
  • Zombeavers, a horror comedy about three friends vacationing at remote cabin who are menaced by the title creatures, is at 60 percent.
  • Danny Collins, starring Al Pacino and Christopher Plummer in a dramedy about a veteran rocker who decides to change his ways after discovering a long-lost letter from a music legend, is at 61 percent.
  • Tracers, starring Taylor Lautner in an action flick about a crew of thieves who use their parkour skills for a series of daring heists, is at 14 percent.
  • Growing Up and Other Lies, starring Adam Brody and Amber Tamblyn in a comedy about a group of millennials who walk across Manhattan while discussing the state of their lives, is at 14 percent.
  • David O. Russell‘s Accidental Love, starring Jessica Biel and Jake Gyllenhaal in a romantic comedy about a woman whose behavior changes when she gets a nail lodged in her skull, is at zero percent.
  • The Walking Deceased, a spoof of zombie apocalypse movies, is at zero percent.

Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, and Octavia Spencer all came out in support of their new film The Divergent Series: Insurgent. Miles Teller is kind enough to give a scoop on the upcoming Fantastic Four, Shai and Theo talk about hair prejudice in the world, Ansel wants to be clear about his running abilities, and the entire cast rolls up their sleeves and plays a feisty game of Name That Movie Box.
