It’s November 2017 and a lot big budget movies are getting their release! As such, this week’s episode of GeekScholars Movie News begins with the hosts revealing their Rotten Tomatoes and Opening Box Office Predictions for: Murder on the Orient Express, Justice League, and Coco.

Director Taika Waititi delivers a fast paced, quip filled movie that has a rainbow of cotton candy colors and riotous set design work that still left me feeling a bit let down. It’s perfectly innocuous entertainment that’s worth watching once and enjoying. However, you’ll most likely forget about it after you leave the theater.
Find out what goes into making a great villain with a telling look at the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first female villain—Hela, played by Oscar® winner Cate Blanchett—in “Hela Good,” a new video featurette from Marvel Studios.
With Thor: Ragnarok, the series moves away from the darkness of its immediate predecessor, Thor: The Dark World, and back into the sense of fun that propelled Thor – winning rave reviews and favorable comparisons with Christopher Reeve’s take on Superman.
