Apes Win Over Spiderman
Both Dunkirk and Girls are doing better than expected. And Valerian tanking worse than they thought. Ouch. Co-host Mark saw Valerian and gave it a 1 out of 5. Enough said, lol.
While Apes should have taken a bigger cut of about $75 is not the news here. That Spidey lost over 60 percent is the news. Again sequel fatigue and it doens't help people got burn with the last Spidey.
What helps here is both will have a great box office overseas.
The first serious film of the summer and one that doesn't clock over 2 hours! Why all these movies so bloated to begin with? And Apes looks like another film not to stay at No. 1 for 2 weeks in a row. And of course there's that Nolan and the Oscar talk and that doesn't hurt at all. This will have legs as it won't have a huge opening but with no competition, A bubble Rhinna doesn't help matters, this will play out thru August.
So while they started introducing new villians and Vulture finally made it to the big screen where are the iconic ones like Mysterio (who almost made it even they did Raimis; number 4, and Kraven the Hunter? At least there's no mention of Goblin. That's enough of that.
Interesting interview on Besson. While I love his films and this one looks interesting, it's greating trashed big time on RT. Well that goes that franchise. lol.
Get over it. This show needs a good kick in the ass. While Capaldi was great in the role as the doctor the show itself was weak, tired and completely out of ideas. And that budget did not help. Did people forget that most Doctors were older then when it came back with a younger Doc thanks to Eccleston that people were up in arms with that, then we got nothing but younger ones. Does that make sense?
