4K Star Wars On Disney+

If you’re looking for even more reasons to sign up for Disney+, here’s some news: all of the Star Wars movies have been remastered in 4K with Dolby Vision and Atmos support for the service. This will mark the first time the original trilogy, and those pesky prequels, have been made available in 4K anywhere.

weekend box office doctor sleep

Has the Stephen King movie adaptation bubble burst? Or was opening a big horror movie a week after Halloween a huge misstep? In any case, Doctor Sleep, Warner Bros.’ big sequel to The Shining, failed to generate much steam over the weekend. The Mike Flanagan-directed King adaptation was tracking toward a $25 million opening weekend, but the real result was an underwhelming $14.1 million. To add insult to injury, the film came in second to Roland Emmerich’s abysmal Midway.

Chris Evans Return to MCU

Chris Evans is done playing Captain America. You know this, I know this, and he knows this. Still, the actor is bound to be asked about returning to the MCU for the rest of his days, because that’s the world we live in now.

Watchmen If You Don't Like My Story Write Your Own

After three stellar episodes in a row, Watchmen stumbles ever so slightly with episode four, “If You Don’t Like My Story, Write Your Own.” That’s not to say this episode is bad. It’s just the first episode we’ve encountered that feels like, well…filler. Almost everything that happens this week is meant to set up something else further down the road, and while the payoff might be worth it, getting there can be a tad frustrating.
