Birds of Prey Is Number One at the Box OfficeDespite all the Hollywood hoopla around the Oscars, this past weekend was a pretty slow one for moviegoers. The weekend only had one new wide release, and it came out on top. Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of Harley Quinn, the DC flick starring Margot Robbie as her Suicide Squad antihero Harley Quinn, pulled in $33.3 million at the box office. That figure is about $20 million below expectations, but it's possible the solid reviews and some word-of-mouth could help it gain some traction.Cats Leads the Razzies NominationsMeanwhile, amidst all the surprises of the Oscar wins, here’s some less shocking news: Cats leads this year’s Razzie nominations. The feline film is up for five awards, including Worst Picture. Also nominated: Sylvester Stallone (Rambo: Last Blood), John Travolta (The Fanatic and Trading Paint), and Tyler Perry (A Madea Family Funeral). See the full list of nominees here.
As expected, Marvel's latest movie broke nearly every box office record imaginable this past weekend, bringing in some $350 in North America and $1.2 billion total worldwide. According to Twitter, approximately 7.8 million tweets sent about last night's Battle of Winterfell episode of Game of Thrones.
