Is Bridesmaids 2 going to happen?
January 16th, 2021 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

This year is going to be Bridesmaids’ 10th anniversary. Therefore, it seems like a good time for them to do a sequel, so will there be one?

“You know, for 10 years we’ve been saying that there will be no sequel. And that’s coming from Kristen [Wiig’s] mouth,” Wendi McLendon-Covey told Us Weekly. “So, yeah, there is no sequel.”

Even though the actors have all been saying there won’t be one for a decade, it is not going to stop people from asking them for one. You know, they should never say never. I mean, this year we are getting sequels to Coming to America and Top Gun, and those movies came out in the ’80s.


Rubik’s Cube is getting its own game show and a movie
January 5th, 2021 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

Did someone turn the clocks back to the ’80s because Rubik’s Cube is getting a game show and a movie?

Graham Taylor, co-president of Endeavor Content, told Variety, “The Rubik’s Cube is an iconic and family friendly brand. In partnership with Hyde Park we look forward to creating film, television, and game show content for global audiences.” Both projects are in the early stages, so we don’t know much about them.

I say they do a movie like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. As in, they have competitions all over the world to see who can solve the most Rubik’s Cubes in the shortest amount of time, and the winner gets to take over the company. Who wouldn’t want that job?


Warner Bros’ 2021 films will be released on HBO Max and in theaters on the same day

Let’s be honest; we are still at least six months away before we can even think about going into a movie theater again. What are the studios going to do?

Well, Warner Bros announced today that they will be releasing their 2021 movies on both HBO Max and in theaters on the same day.

“After considering all available options and the projected state of moviegoing throughout 2021, we came to the conclusion that this was the best way for WarnerMedia’s motion picture business to navigate the next 12 months,” said Jason Kilar, CEO, WarnerMedia. “More importantly, we are planning to bring consumers 17 remarkable movies throughout the year, giving them the choice and the power to decide how they want to enjoy these films. Our content is extremely valuable, unless it’s sitting on a shelf not being seen by anyone. We believe this approach serves our fans, supports exhibitors and filmmakers, and enhances the HBO Max experience, creating value for all.”

Their 2021 theatrical lineup includes The Little Things, Judas and the Black Messiah, Tom & Jerry, Godzilla vs. Kong, Mortal Kombat, Those Who Wish Me Dead, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, In The Heights, Space Jam: A New Legacy, The Suicide Squad, Reminiscence, Malignant, Dune, The Many Saints of Newark, King Richard, Cry Macho and Matrix 4.

Wonder Woman: 1984 will kick things off on December 25th.

This makes a lot of sense. While the small screen is not as good as the big one. However, it is better than none at all. I have a feeling Disney, Viacom, and Universal will follow suit on their streaming platforms Disney+, CBS All Access, and Peacock, respectively.


You can rent an AMC theater for $99 to watch a movie with 19 friends

Have you been wanting to go to the movies but don’t feel it is safe because of the coronavirus pandemic? Well, AMC has you covered. You can rent a theater to watch one of their select movies with up to 19 of your friends. The best part is most of the films like Empire Strikes Back and Shrek are going for $99 plus tax. Newer movies like The War with Grandpa and Unhinged start at $149.

I forgot to see Jumanji: The Next Level when it was in theaters, and now I can do just that. I just wish they had the offer at Universal City Walk. I would walk over with my neighbors, vote, and then go see the feature. How much fun would that be?

I mean, who hasn’t dreamed of having the theater all to themselves? I have had that happen to me a few times. I have awful taste in movies and never see one the first week it comes out.


No Time to Die kills some movie theater chains
October 5th, 2020 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

Last week, MGM announced that it was delaying No Time to Die until Easter. Over the weekend, Cineworld announced that it will be keeping its movie theaters in the UK and Regal Cinemas in the US closed for the foreseeable future.

“We had reached the stage where we had no alternative, it was a very, very difficult decision for us, mainly in view of the move we will have to take towards the employees,” CEO Mooky Greidinger told Sky News on Monday.

“From a liquidity point of view, we were bleeding much bigger amounts when we are open than when we were closed.”

Their decision to shut down their 663 in theaters in both countries will cause 45,000 people to lose their jobs.

But hey, let’s not wear a mask, social distance, and act like everything is normal. It isn’t. Wake up and be responsible. I want to hug a friend on their birthday. I want to go to the movies again. I want to go to a concert again. I want to see a play again. But I can’t because of people acting like they are invincible against an invisible killer. We are not. Please, take this seriously because if we don’t, the things we love might cease ever to exist again.
