    MGM’s Bond 25 will open April 8, 2020 now, instead of Feb. 14, 2020. That new date is the Wednesday before Easter, and currently 007 is the only major pic on that new date.

Middle Kingdom is the bread and butter for the Fast & Furious franchise. B… Read

    By Anthony D'Alessandro on Feb 14, 2019 1:03 pm

    Did we want to watch a trailer? Yes, we watched a trailer. Disney’s Frozen 2 to be specific, a whole 116.4M of us in the teaser’s first 24 hours. That makes the pic the most-watched trailer of all-time for an animated film, besting the 113.6M views clocked for Incredibles 2.  There is something to be said about how online trailer views translate into B.O. numbers — at least at this point in time. We saw this with New Line’s It which turned into a hit with a record horror… Read

    By Anthony D'Alessandro on Feb 14, 2019 7:58 am

    Disney’s Captain Marvel from Marvel landed on tracking today, and most early industry estimates are certain that it’s headed to $100M, especially with the pic’s enormous first choice score of 33 and the fact that the trailer clocked a huge 109M views in its first 24 hours, but we have to remember a couple of things: First, we’re in a funky marketplace.

    By Anthony D'Alessandro on Feb 13, 2019 2:36 pm

    “The direct-to-service strategy is happening,” Amazon Studios Head Jennifer Salke said at TCA this morning. While Amazon Studios will continue to be a respecter of theatrical windows, it currently is making movies specifically for its Amazon Prime portal, and very well could emulate a similar qualifying theatrical-quick-to-streaming window that Netflix practiced this past awards season for its pics Roma, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs and 22 July.  You can’t say that Netflix… Read
