Tom Cruise returns to theaters in American Made, while Sony, the jack of all retreads and redos, tries to find a reboot pulse, yet again, with Flatliners.
Two new sequels splash across screens. The Kingsman: The Golden Circle and to a lesser degree, The LEGO Ninjago Movie, both arrive with considerable fanfare.
Unfortunately for Darren Aronofsky, and his cast to die for, his macabre thriller, “Mother!,” opens this Friday, smacking down in the middle of Clown Town.
Time to bring in the clowns. The real deal. Enter: Stephen King’s Pennywise, to be precise.
If the summer of 2017 will be remember as one thing, it’ll be the season that Hollywood officially became second-tier entertainment to streaming content.
This summer can’t get any worse at the box office, right?
“The truth is, this summer has been a big-time box office bummer, and August has only accentuated that fact.” — Jeff Bock
Two more sequels arrive this weekend—“Annabelle: Creation” and “Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature”—and should finish 1, 2 atop the summer slowdown.
Reshoots, re-edits, and whisperings of revolt (mostly from preview audiences) have cluttered the trail of “The Dark Tower.”
“There’s an old adage that goes: ‘Into each a life, a little crap must fall.’ I’m not sure whoever said that had ‘The Emoji Movie’ in mind.” — Jeff Bock
