Blader Runner 2049 box office

Blade Runner 2049 just can’t catch a break. After the film underperformed domestically, producers had hoped to recoup costs overseas. But the film has now bombed in China as well, crushing any hope left for the cerebral sci-fi sequel to turn a significant profit. But that doesn’t stop the film from being good, so word that a much longer cut of the already long film once existed should intrigue those of you who loved the film.

amityville the awakening release date

For years, movie fans would joke about whether or not Amityville: The Awakening actually existed. The tenth movie in the Amityville Horror series was filmed back in 2014, but found itself delayed. And delayed again. And again. Posters would arrive and trailers would appear, but the movie itself slid around the calendar like a hairless, grease-drenched monkey on a slip-n-slide. The film became a joke and each release date change kept the joke running.

Now, the joke has reached its final punchline: Amityville: The Awakening quietly hit theaters last Friday and suffered one of the worst opening weekends of all time.

why the dark tower failed

We’re in a new age of Stephen King adaptations, with new and upcoming films like ItGerald’s Game, and 1922 winning over critics and audiences alike. But, like King’s own catalogue, there are plenty of stinkers.

The Dark Tower was the long-awaited adaptation of King’s magnum opus, the multiverse-spanning sci-fi series of the same name. And it tanked. Despite the many years The Dark Tower spent in development, fans got a choppy, chopped-up adaptation of the book series, causing the film to barely break even at the box office and to attain a meager 16% Rotten Tomatoes rating. And though King was heavily invested in the success of this adaptation, the author revealed why The Dark Tower failed.
