The first trailer is out for Captain America: Civil War and I didn’t know Superhero movies could be a snoozefest. I guess they can be because I fell asleep just watching the trailer, so imagine what it is going to be like when the movie comes out on May 6th.
Scott Stapp heard that there is movie out now called Creed, and to paraphrase Carly Simon’s biggest hit, he’s so vain, he thought the movie was about him. Since the singer thought it was about his band, he ran out to see it. After the credits rolled, he filmed a review and submitted it to Funny or Die. Did he finally realize it was spinoff of the Rocky movies? Nope, but he accepted it With Arms Wide Open.
Will he do the same for Assassin’s Creed? We will just have to wait and see.
Did you forget that Jem and the Holograms came out this weekend? Don’t worry so did almost everyone else because the movie had the Worst Opening Weekend for a major studio release in over 2,000 theaters and fourth overall in the category.
How low did it go? According to Box Office Mojo, it made a whopping $1,320,000 even though it played in 2,413 theaters. That is an average of just $547 per theater. Ouch!
Not that I am complaining because that is what they get for destroying the classic cartoon and making it into a piece of sh!t film that has nothing to do with the original concept. So we had the last laugh. Ha ha!
Jem wasn’t the only movie that bombed this weekend. Bill Murray’s Rock the Kasbah opened up to just $1,509,816 in 2012 theaters, averaging $750 per theater. Ouch.
All of this news made Zac Efron a very happy man this weekend, because his movie We Are Friends bumped up two spots to 6th Worst Opening Movie and 3rd Worst Opener for a Very Wide Release. So it wasn’t all bad.
In a few weeks, all of these box office numbers will mean absolutely nothing because all we will be talking about is all the records that Star Wars: The Force Awakens breaks.
It is the day that has been day almost 26 years in the making, It is October 21, 2015. Why is this day so significant? It is the day that Marty McFly travels to in Back to the Future 2.
There has been a lot of talk about what they got right and what they got wrong. One of the things they got right, is what the front page looks like on USA Today today. Granted that is because the newspaper recreated it for their print edition.
Not only did they cover what they covered back then, but they added a great little article at the bottom. If you want to read it, you can do so below.
How are you spending Back to the Future Day? I am going to the Burger King where they filmed part of the first one. They are having a Marty McFly March at 3:30p PT.
Back in 1989, when Back to the Future came out, they predicted that the Chicago Cubs would sweep the World Series. Something that seemed really far fetched back then. Well, we are a week away from the Back to the Future 2 date and it looks like the Cubs could go to the World Series.
Not only did they predict that about the Cubs, they also predicted Miami would get a baseball team. Something that didn’t become official until 2 years after the film came out.
So did they hit it out of the park with their predictions? We won’t know until after October 21st because the World Series doesn’t start until October 27th. So we will have to wait and see.
As a Mets fan, I am really hoping they got it wrong.
The first trailer is out for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and if it’s anything like Seth Grahame-Smith’s last adapted novel for the big screen, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, February 5th can’t come soon enough. Seriously, doesn’t this movie look like it is going to be a hoot’nanny from the beginning until the end. As in it’ll just be stupid fun and we need more of that at the movies. Right?
We are 15 days away from the Back to the Future 2 Day and Universal is finally ready to release Jaws 19 as predicted! The studio released the trailer for the movie and I can’t wait for it. I also want to know how I missed Jaws 17 because that looks like it was the best one of them all.
BTW if I were Syfy, I would work on a Jaws vs Sharknado movie. I think Jaws would win because he is one bad MoFo!
Seriously though, when are we going to get Jaws 5?
What’s the Mashup? took 100 dance scenes and put them to Uptown Funk, and what we got is the funkiest video you will see all day! It’s amazing how even the whitest dancers can be funky with the right song. Right?
The only movies this brilliant mashup is missing is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Center Stage, Can’t Buy Me Love, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Rent. Even without those five, I can’t help but to smile every time I watch it because you can’t watch it just once.
We live in a world where toys, comic books and videogames have become feature film, so why not phone apps too? The first one to get its own movie is Angry Birds. While the trailer is really cute, are we still going to remember what they were in May? Do we even remember what they are now?
When we first got to know David Moscow, he played a young Tom Hanks who made a wish to be Big. Well, now he is big and he has a wish that he needs you to help him fulfill.
Moscow has been acting nonstop since that classic movie, and recently he just finished directing his first film. Now, he needs the money to complete Desolation and he is asking you to help him finish his dream come true.
He launced a Kickstarter campaign and for $25 you can get a signed Newsies postcard from him. For $300, you can get him to record a message on your answering machine. For $500, he will individually Skype with you for an hour. For $2,500, you will be listed as an Associate Producer of the film. For $9,500, you will be listed a Producer of the film. These are just a few of the perks for helping him out, and when you go to the Kickstarter page you can find out the rest.
So do a Zoltar and be his fortune giver.
A big reason why I am posting this, is that the Desolation sounds and looks really interesting
