Those dang millennials, let me tell you. As I’ve been told by numerous think-pieces, they’re killing off everything, checking their phones too much, and riding their roller blades all over the town. But here’s one old fashioned thing millennials are still interested in: going to the movies. At least during the current holiday season. A new study by Fandango reveals that those crafty, hard-to-pin-down millennials are planning to flock to multiplexes to take in new films like Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

MoviePass ads

We’ve written a lot about MoviePass over the past few months, and for good reason: despite a questionable customer service track record, some scare tactics, and what appears to have been an underestimation of consumers’ desire for its own product, the service provides a solid value to movie lovers who want to see a movie every day for a cheap price. It’s worth putting up with all of the aforementioned problems if the end result is being able to see a movie per day at the cost of $6.95 per month for a year.

Now MoviePass has unveiled some numbers proving that they’re having a measurable impact on box office numbers.

2017 black list

Like with many aspects of Hollywood and the film industry, you can’t take the annual “Black List” too seriously. The survey of the “most liked” unproduced screenplays can be a valuable tool, a way for studios and filmmakers to discover talented writers and brilliant screenplays. It can also be political and silly, as a glance at previous years’ lists can prove. But the fact remains that Black List movies have often been critical and financial juggernauts. Sometimes, this is a list of the best movies you’ll see get made over the next few years. Sometimes.

The 2017 Black List has been revealed, so take a look at the titles and the attached talent. You may very well be seeing some of these movies realized on the big screen pretty soon.

Seth Rogen joining a David Gordon Green movie is not surprising news – they previously collaborated on the very funny stoner comedy Pineapple Express. David Gordon Green making a movie about legendary newsman Walter Cronkite and CBS News on the day of John F. Kennedy’s assassination is not surprising news – he is a versatile filmmaker who has floated between genres with ease. What is surprising news is that this film, titled Newsflash, will see Green directing Seth Rogen as Walter Cronkite. There’s no getting around it: that’s just downright wacky casting.
