The War with Grandpa Box Office

As if 2020 wasn’t already weird enough, the family comedy The War with Grandpa, starring Robert De Niro and directed by Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties filmmaker Tim Hill, has dethroned Christopher Nolan‘s sci-fi action blockbuster Tenet from the top spot on the box office charts. All it took was $3.6 million to knock Tenet out of the number one spot, which it held for six weekends in a row. But how did the rest of the weekend fare? Did any other movies from the past return to the charts? Find out below. Read More »

Warner Bros., Disney, and every other major studio may be reluctant to be the first out the gate to release their major studio films in newly reopened theaters, but Solstice Studios’ Unhinged is sprinting to beat all other movies to the cinema. The Russell Crowe B-movie thriller is proudly announcing that it will be the first “new wide release in American movie theaters since they shut down in March due to Covid-19” with its August 21 release date — a week before Tenet opens in select U.S. theaters on Labor Day weekend.

The Conjuring 3 Logo

At the end of last week, studios shifted the release dates for the big movies that are intended to usher in the reopening of movie theaters around the United States (and around the globe). Originally slated for release in July, movies like Tenet, Mulan, Unhinged, Broken Hearts Gallery and Bill & Ted Face the Music have been delayed between two weeks and a month due to the fact that movie theaters in some of the biggest markets in the US would not yet be allowed to open. But studios aren’t even confident the new August dates will hold, and more changes are likely to come.

Thanks to the rising number of coronavirus cases keeping some major cities from reopening movie theaters in July, not to mention the constant shift in release dates, Warner Bros. Pictures is leaning towards delaying The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It from its September 11, 2020 release date and shifting it back to sometime in 2021. The major studios don’t think the new August release dates are a safe bet, and they’re anticipating the aforementioned titles will be pushed into September, shaking up the fall release calendar significantly.

Christopher Nolan‘s Tenet and Disney’s remake of Mulan have been pushed back into August, which has shaken up how soon movie theaters will be reopening.

The thriller Unhinged starring Russell Crowe and the return of Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter in Bill and Ted Face the Music have each been pushed back slightly, but Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse starring Michael B. Jordan has been delayed four months to early in 2021. Read More »

unhinged trailer

In a somewhat questionable attempt to both beat Tenet‘s potential July release and to lay claim to the title of the first new movie released in theaters in months, here comes Unhinged, a Russell Crowe thriller you probably never heard of until today. The selling point for this flick doesn’t seem to be the presence of Crowe, who is playing a crazy guy targeting a woman he encountered in a traffic jam, but rather that this will be the first new movie to hit theaters since March. Watch the Unhinged trailer below.
