I like how that can be considered backlash when Netflix wasnt the one that did it...

I wonder how much money Lionsgate will throw down in their attempt to "tell more stories" in the Hunger Games and Twilight franchises? This nostalgia rush for all things 70s, 80s and 90s is probably not going to make the same level of success for even these young adult franchises with their loyal fan bases.

Not only that, but J-Law has turned herself into too much of a liability ever since her nude photos got released. Do young people really want to see her as much now?

Well personally I don't think her nudes have anything to do with it, but no, I no longer think she's a hot idol for teens like she was in hunger games.

After that happened, she just turned into an outright bitch. You can see the change quite noticeably.

The sad part is they had a lot riding on that, even a whole cinematic unverse they had planned.

BTW did anyone see the Dark Tower? I did, and I thought it wasnt too bad. It seems to be bombing hard at the box office though. Sad

they're desperate. i've heard that it made half it's budget, and considering that they were probably riding on the whole "let's make a low-budget movie so that we'll turn a profit even if people hate it" and that completely blew up in their face.

They are so desperate that they are ALREADY doing a 'buy one get one free' promotion for tickets if you buy an Emoji movie happy meal for your kid.

Wow. That is bad. And to think that this happened because of how Amy Pascal killed that one Popeye movie. Well, at least we got the final season of Samurai Jack out of that so at least something great came out of this.

The Nut Job 2 only made $8.9 million on it's opening debut and only had slightly over 4,000 theaters showing it.

Wow. That is just bad.

I wonder if its an omen that barring Disney, DreamWorks and Illuination, other CGI animated film studios are starting to undergo a phase of decay. And that you can't make money off the same formula that Shrek and DreamWorks created that subsequent studios have abused to death. Meanwhile, I wonder what this means for the remaining animated films to come out this year. Pixar will be fine of course, but there are a few more on my mind: The Lego Ninjago Movie (which has to do just as well as The Lego Batman Movie, somehow), Sony's The Star which just looks lousy as all hell, and... The MLP movie, which no matter where you fall on the show and its fandom its going to be an interesting film to watch at the box office.

China has been restricted from investing in Hollywood, as well as sports and hotels.

This means that Hollywood isn't as much of a de facto propaganda tool of the Chinese and that China won;t be able to hide its atrocities as easily.

The was a clash between Sony and the director of The Dark Tower about the first cut of the movie.

Jordan Vogt Roberts goes Josh Trank on CinemaSins.

This really bothers me since he's going to direct the upcoming Metal Gear Solid movie. As a huge Metal Gear Solid fan, I don't see a hard adaptation of that game working since it has far too much moving parts. And we know how much Sony sucks.

Frankly, CinemaSins has had a tirade like this coming in a long time. Vogt-Roberts might have been very careless in his Twitter ranting, but he has a right to stand up and defend the film he made, no matter how good or bad other people think it is. In a world that's pretty cynical by itself, we don't need CinemaSins.

That may be true, but even so. You don't pull this when you're just starting your career. Look at Josh Trank.

Haha I hadn't even thought about the MLP film. I'm actually super interested to see what the box office for that is, considering it also appeals to many adults.

If the movie is well received among the fans it could be a big hit. It's actually quite genius to adapt it into a film. Half my friends are "Brony".

Also I agree about Cinema sins. Although this isn't the first time the director of Skull Island has had an outburst about something. I think the guy has a short temper and just can't stand to be quiet.

Idk if you guys heard about the airplane incident.

Except Josh Trank made a bomb of a film, while Vogt-Roberts made a fun, and entertaining film that made decent rating and a good amount of money, something neither of which Craptastic 4 can claim. So unlike Trank, Vogt-Roberts actually has a leg to stand on in defending his movie.

Airplane incident?

Sat next to a trump supporter on a plane and he was so upset by the guys social media that he went on Twitter and bitched about it in 75 tweets. He even took a photo of the dude. Made fun of him and his appearance to his followers.

Quote :
The feud really kicked off, however, after Vogt-Roberts realised that, in the process of leaving his seat, the man had broken his (Vogt-Roberts's) phone charger cord.

He eventually related his decision to take the other man's cable in compensation, writing: "BUT I GOT YOUR CORD MOTHER F------. BYEEEEEEEEEEE".

Quote :
"And that might conclude this Twitter saga. Be kind. Take responsibility. The world is changing. The patriarchy is dead. The cord is mine," he wrote in a final post.

Controversially, the director also posted videos and photographs of the passenger, although these have also now been deleted, along with the majority of the posts.

The guy broke jordans charger by accident. Most of these tweets are now deleted. But still It was a shameful display. He even had the nerve to talk about echo chambers later on lmao.

Shocked Shocked Shocked

And THIS is who will direct the Metal Gear Solid movie?! He complains about people needing to treat each other better after treating a Trump supporter who he doesn't even know like sh*t. What a hypocritical dick. And what does he consider 'alt-right'? For all I know, JVR would consider anybody who's not a centerist alt-right, which in real life, isn't anywhere close to being true. How this guy got the role of the director, I'll never know. I was never on board for a Metal Gear Solid movie, even more so how Sony/Avi Arad are involved, and JVR I always saw as too green. Now, I can NOT support this movie at all. I hope that Sony goes under before this movie gets made and the project goes to another studio and a new director is picked.

Joss Whedon's ex-wife blasts him as a hypocritical feminist.

I know that this is from a jilted ex-wife, but with that being said, considering how Joss attacked Trump's daughter (who's actually quite liberal), insulted Nicole Kidman when she said that Trump needed a fair chance, and wrote a VERY sexist Wonder Woman script, I really don't have a choice but to believe what she says.

Pixar will be fine of course, but there are a few more on my mind: The Lego Ninjago Movie (which has to do just as well as The Lego Batman Movie, somehow), Sony's The Star which just looks lousy as all hell, and... The MLP movie, which no matter where you fall on the show and its fandom its going to be an interesting film to watch at the box office.

Haha I hadn't even thought about the MLP film. I'm actually super interested to see what the box office for that is, considering it also appeals to many adults.

If the movie is well received among the fans it could be a big hit. It's actually quite genius to adapt it into a film. Half my friends are "Brony".

Also I agree about Cinema sins. Although this isn't the first time the director of Skull Island has had an outburst about something. I think the guy has a short temper and just can't stand to not say something.

Idk if you guys heard about the airplane incident.

Airplane incident?

Sat next to a trump supporter on a plane  and he was so upset by the guys social media that he went on Twitter and bitched about it in 75 tweets. He even took a photo of the dude. Made fun of him and his appearance to his followers.

Quote :
The feud really kicked off, however, after Vogt-Roberts realised that, in the process of leaving his seat, the man had broken his (Vogt-Roberts's) phone charger cord.

He eventually related his decision to take the other man's cable in compensation, writing: "BUT I GOT YOUR CORD MOTHER F------. BYEEEEEEEEEEE".

Quote :
"And that might conclude this Twitter saga. Be kind. Take responsibility. The world is changing. The patriarchy is dead. The cord is mine," he wrote in a final post.

Controversially, the director  also posted videos and photographs of the passenger, although these have also now been deleted, along with the majority of the posts.

The guy broke jordans charger by accident. Most of these tweets are now deleted. But still It was a shameful display. He even had the nerve to talk about echo chambers later on lmao.

^you can read some of the tweets yourself of the last link.

Shocked Shocked Shocked

And THIS is who will direct the Metal Gear Solid movie?! He complains about people needing to treat each other better after treating a Trump supporter who he doesn't even know like sh*t. What a hypocritical dick. And what does he consider 'alt-right'? For all I know, JVR would consider anybody who's not a centerist alt-right, which in real life, isn't anywhere close to being true. How this guy got the role of the director, I'll never know. I was never on board for a Metal Gear Solid movie, even more so how Sony/Avi Arad are involved, and JVR I always saw as too green. Now, I can NOT support this movie at all. I hope that Sony goes under before this movie gets made and the project goes to another studio and a new director is picked.
