great emu war movie

In the 1930s, Western Australia had a problem – an overabundance of emus (although if you ask me, there’s no such thing as too many emus). The solution: send in a bunch of soldiers with machine guns to cut down the emu population. That’s weird enough as it is, but the story gets even stranger/better, because while many birds were killed, the emu population continued to thrive. It was dubbed “The Emu War” by the media, and in the end, the emus won. Now, two people who you probably never expected to see working together – John Cleese and Rob Schneider – are teaming up to make a Great Emu War movie.

nomadland release

We’ve reached an important foothold in the awards season race. The Producers Guild of America Awards has often been a great litmus test for the Oscar front-runners, with the PGA award winner often going on to win that coveted Best Picture Academy Award (see: Green Book, The Shape of WaterArgo, and more in recent years). It’s not always the case (Sam Mendes’ PGA winner 1917 was bested by Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite last year), but it gives us a good idea for how the race will shape up. And the 2021 PGA nominations did that once again, giving a boost to awards season favorites Nomadland and The Trial of the Chicago 7, while appearing to put the nail in the coffin for the frequently snubbed Da 5 Bloods.

See the 2021 PGA nominations below.

coming 2 america trailer new

Coming 2 America was a sequel that was a long time coming — it was finally released more than 30 years after the original 1988 hit comedy. So it stands to reason that the long-awaited Coming to America sequel, which brings back Eddie Murphy and other original cast members, would have legions of nostalgic fans who would tune in when the film debuted on Amazon Prime Video last week. But even so, today’s news that Coming 2 America had the biggest debut of any streaming movie in the past year? That’s a bit hard to believe, but as is the case with all of these celebratory “ratings” stories, we have no actual numbers to back it up. So let’s roll out the royal red carpet for the movie that reportedly scored the “No. 1 opening weekend of any streaming movie in the past 12 months.”
