Huge Guardians Box Office
We should be back in July for our 28th year and a new radio show soon, probably next week.
PS: Bonus section: Major franchises going to tv/cable.
Now that the top 2 films of the summer are raking up big bucks, it's time for the rest of the slaughter to take place. Both Amy and the King are not even going to clear $20M this weekend. Wipeout.
Mix reviews for Aliens and are people getting tired of Depps business affairs. That article coming in the next blog after this weekend.
Pretty huge opening. And there's no hard competition coming down the pike besides more sequels aka Aliens and Pirates. Again the big question where is this going to land when all said and done. F8 is heading to the top 10 all time and would have been the bi one for the year if it wasn't for that 800 lb beast in the room. See next link.
Mini Review: 3 out of 5. Kind of disappointed. Bit too long with that father and son angle. Too much with the girls fighting back and forth. Never liked the blue guy and not enough Groot. Racoon and Dax rock. But still a lot of action and great SFX. First one is still better.
Unbelievable. One of the most boring Disney flicks of all time and this made the all time Wide World top 10. And it's ready to take out Frozen, the most overrated Disney flick, as the biggest money maker for the house of mouse. This only proves the dumbing of audiences with all the marketing hype that these two are the biggest winners. Sad very sad.
I put this on the blog so you can check out the comments below the article. And I have to agree with most on that 1. Prometheus sucked 2. Who cares about the engineers 3. Bring back Sigorney and do Blomkamp's vision. 4. I do ague about the lead female role. Aliens set the standard for females kicking ass and Signorney got an Oscar nod for it. So more females kicking ass. Besides guys are the bait in this franchise and that's what makes it all fun. Especially if they're dumb scientists who stick their nose in where it doesn't belong like in Prometheus. I mean DUMB!
I am curious about this one but don't expect a major 5 from me.
You know original Hellboy Ron Pearlman is piss off as hell. He's been pushing for this for the longest and now he's been completely written off. If anyone's to blame is Del Toro himself. Notice the pattern? He keeps asking for these big budgets aka Pacific Rim and they take the projects away from him. Hellboy 3 would have had a huge budget and not enough of an audience to back it up even tho the second one did damn good, one that I myself went and brought the blu-ray. Keeper! Let's see how this reboot works. Everyone involved with the new one just brings me one big yawn.
Waste of a video. Talk about being bored while promoting your movie. These guys look like they want to be anywhere but here. Expecially Gosling who looks like if he forgot to take the turkey out of the oven or not.
With big paychecks they should look involved or if not, your actors! Act involved. Wow what a waste and you learn nothing about the movie.
Is it me or does Cruise look miscast in this one. And this whole premise sounds great but it looks like something is going to get lost in the translation. If it weren't for this scene and Crowe as the mad doctor I might have skip this one. Crap I can't, gotta review it for the show. why, Why, WHY?..me.
Bonus Section: Franchises heading to the big tv/cable screen.
They have to keep it R like Archer and keep it on the edge. At least it didn't go to Disney, lol.
There is a huge cult following for Dredd even if it states the movie bomb, it does have a audience.
* It looks like once Bryan Singer announced the X-Men tv series now many studios are going that route. And I'm for it. It is a mish mash aka Agents of Shield which sucks and Flash and Supergirl nailing it. And it avoids having a Fantastic Four blowout movie franchise with that whole thing being in limbo. So simple and they still can't get it right.
