Wonder Woman 1984 will be released in theaters and on HBO Max simultaneously on Christmas Day. But the first round of press screenings happened just before the weekend, and the initial wave of social media reactions has already hit the web.
Thankfully, it sounds like director Patty Jenkins has knocked Wonder Woman 1984 out of the park with superhero spectacle that brings some much needed movie magic and positivity that we can all use after this terrible year. Plus, Gal Gadot continues to shine as the DC Comics superhero, and Chris Pine, Pedro Pascal, and Kristen Wiig all get to showcase outstanding supporting performances too. Get the round-up of the first Wonder Woman 1984 reactions below. Read More »
Terminator: Dark Fate made a valiant effort to properly reboot the Terminator franchise by sending it off in a fresh direction while still having ties to the the original continuity after Terminator 2: Judgment Day. It essentially gave the Terminator franchise the same treatment that The Force Awakens did for Star Wars, complete with the return of Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor, a new Terminator played by Gabriel Luna, Mackenzie Davis as a cybernetically enhanced resistance fighter from the future, and a new take on the John Connor formulua in the form of Daniella (Natalia Reyes), the new savior of the future war between humans and technology.
Unfortunately, Terminator: Dark Fate didn’t rake in as much cash at the box office as Paramount Pictures and Skydance hoped it would. The film earned $261.1 million worldwide, which isn’t the best way to start a “new” blockbuster trilogy as producer James Cameron hoped. Thankfully, Mackenzie Davis has given us some insight into where a Terminator: Dark Fate sequel would have gone, though it admittedly raises more questions than answers.

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect.

There have been dozens of movie adaptations of Charles Dickens’ classic story A Christmas Carol (with even more to come), but here’s one that puts a new spin on things.
Andy Serkis (The Lord of the Rings trilogy), Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out), Carey Mulligan (Never Let Me Go), Martin Freeman (The Hobbit), and more are featured in a new reimagining which tells the familiar story through “the magical fusion of modern dance and the spoken word.” And it’s coming to U.S. theaters this holiday season.

But there could be a glimmer of hope on the horizon. Negotiations on a stimulus bill started up in Congress again this week, and part of that stimulus includes proposals for $15 billion for movie theaters.
