bloodshot vod sales

One of the few good things about not reporting box office numbers at the moment is that we don’t have to see how audiences around America ignore the critically acclaimed, underseen fare in favor of the bad popcorn flick of the month. But it turns out that, even with movie theaters closed around the country, things don’t change much.

Last week, both Bloodshot and Birds of Prey, two comic book movies with wildly different critical receptions, hit digital platforms early amid coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns. But despite the abysmal critical reception to Bloodshot (which sits at 29% on Rotten Tomatoes), and favorable reviews of Birds of Prey (78% on Rotten Tomatoes), Bloodshot came out on top in video-on-demand sales.

Bad Boys For Life First 9 Minutes 

Bad Boys for Life is now on digital, and you should really check it out. Believe me, I was a bit skeptical going into the movie, but it turned out to be a lot of fun. Also: it has a witch as one of its villains, which is a selling point I feel like more people should’ve brought up. That’s right, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence have to fight a witch in this movie. If you still need some convincing (even after the witch part), the first 9 minutes of the film are now online to give you a little taste.

A Texas theater has converted itself into a temporary drive-in – and the result has been a smashing success. An EVO Entertainment theater located in Schertz, TX (trivia: the hometown of /Film managing editor Jacob Hall) set up a drive-in option in its parking lot, and has been selling out every single show since opening last Friday.

eliot stabler series

Hot-tempered cop Elliot Stabler is back, baby! Christopher Meloni is returning to his iconic Law and Order: SVU role for a new spin-off series focused on Stabler, a character who abruptly departed SVU after 12 seasons. This new series will find Stabler heading up the organized crime division of the NYPD, and will also presumably feature plenty of scenes where Meloni scowls and possibly violates a suspect’s civil rights, as he was wont to do back in the day.

rise of skywalker was rewritten

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the most divisive blockbuster since Star Wars: The Last Jedi, ended the Skywalker Saga with a heavy concentration of nostalgia and not enough attention paid to its overall plot. For some fans, those little dopamine hits of familiar references were enough to scratch their Star Wars-specific itches; for others, they were amusing distractions in a story that felt rushed and cobbled together. Well, according to one of the film’s writers, Chris Terrio, the movie was rushed and cobbled together. And while rewriting major movies on the fly is nothing new (especially not for Star Wars), this one evidently took things to a new level. Read More »
