How High Can ‘Dumbo’ Fly? (The MovieBabble Podcast Ep. 13)

by Collin Willis

How high can Dumbo fly? To quote another Disney movie, it’s more “falling with style” than it is flying. Dumbo takes the weekend, but with a much narrower victory than its budget warrants as Us continues to make audiences squirm in terror at the #2 spot. Captain Marvel finds itself within inches of a $1 billion gross in the three spot while Five Feet Apart continues to be a movie that exists and Unplanned makes an un-predicted dent in the box office.

And just in case you were wondering, Jai Courtney is indeed returning for James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad.

The summer box office season is starting up, how will your favorite movies fare? Will Disney ever lose the #1 spot? We discuss these pressing issues and more in this week’s episode of the MovieBabble Podcast:

(We apologize for Nick’s weird love of The Beach Bum — he gets a little too excited from time to time.)
