While we’re not sure if movie theaters will be opening their doors in time to get Christopher Nolan’s Tenet into theaters by the proposed July 17 release date (or if Warner Bros. will even release it), it’s very likely that they’ll at least be back in business by sometime in August. But how will movie theaters convince audiences to come back? They’ll be getting help in the form of a major marketing campaign with the support of all the major movie studios, some big name stars, and even their Hollywood agencies. Read More »

the wretched box office

IFC Films is winning at the box office. To be fair, there aren’t many other movies out there to compete with, but IFC’s indie horror flick The Wretched is cleaning up, remaining at the top of the charts for the fifth weekend in a row.

gambit movie villain

Remember the Gambit movie? Channing Tatum was all set to star as the Cajun mutant (even getting an atrocious haircut for the role) in a buzzy X-Men solo spin-off movie that went through numerous directors and writers before falling into oblivion after the Disney-Fox merger. Doug Liman was the last director to be attached to the film before he hammered the last nail in its coffin with an unforgiving, “It’s done.” But as recently as 2016, Gambit wasn’t done. X-Men: Apocalypse writer and Dark Phoenix director Simon Kinberg revealed that the nonsensical end-credits scene in Apocalypse were actually planting the seeds for a future Gambit film, teasing the film’s original intended villain, Mister Sinister.
