Mad Men’ Season 5 leaves behind its ninth episode of the year, as Don tries to get back in the game while Betty reveals a distressing secret to Sally, and Roger enlists the estranged Jane in helping him land a new account.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘The Avengers’ Destroy ‘Dark Shadows’

Box Office Report: Dark Shadows
Warner Bros.

Poor Barnabas Collins never stood a chance. Tim Burton's 'Dark Shadows' found itself clobbered to death over the weekend courtesy of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, who rode a perfect cocktail of hype and stellar word-of-mouth to an unprecedented second weekend. It's no longer a question of whether or not 'The Avengers' will be one of the biggest movies of all time, mainly because it already is one of the biggest movies of all time: after only nineteen days, it's crossed the $1 billion mark. The question we should be pondering now is whether or not it will become the biggest movie of all time.

‘Dark Shadows’ Review

Dark Shadows
Warner Bros.

I love watching Johnny Depp make silly faces. Heck, I can watch that all day!

That's something I used to think. Now I know that I can watch it for. . .about forty minutes. For an hour and fifty-three, which is the running time of Tim Burton's 'Dark Shadows,' I start to get real uncomfortable.

In this week's Reel Women we discuss something that people often shy away from: the sexualization of young actresses. In Tim Burton's latest film, 'Dark Shadows,' Chloe Grace Moretz plays a pretentious, grating teen with all the sexual emphasis of the film's co-stars -- women who are more than twice her age.

Does Hollywood have a problem? Or are we the problem?

‘Dark Shadows’ and ‘The Avengers’ Call Imax Truce

Marvel, Warner Brothers

'The Avengers' had the Imax field all to itself this weekend. It was on 275 Digital Imax screens and made $15.3 Million there, which would figure out to $55.6 Thousand per screen (and that's nearly eight thousand above the total per screen average). It also did $207 Million over the weekend, which meant exhibitors were none too happy to lose any of these screens to 'Dark Shadows,' which they already had booked. But a deal's been made to share screens.

Tim Burton's 'Dark Shadows' was slow on its roll out to theaters - it didn't have a trailer until a couple of weeks ago and for a summer release it's been curiously mute until recently. You'd think a Tim Burton/ Johnny Depp film would be hyped more after their 'Alice in Wonderland.' But now we have a featurette for the movie, which talks about vampire lore and a little bit about the original show.
