New in Theaters Sept. 25: Shortcut

Chris Kavan - wrote on 09/24/20 at 06:54 PM CT

Well, here we are - there's actually a new wide release coming out this week. It's not going to have much of an impact, but at least it's there. Once again, the biggest story is not what is coming out, but rather, what has been delayed. Disney has pushed back all MCU titles - Black Widow is now going to have to wait until May 2021 - and that, in turn, has delayed the release of Shang-Chi and The …

In the Heights, Shorcut and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

As I wasn't feeling ups for a full write-up this weekend for the box office, a mini update for you:

Tenet still came out on top, though it dropped to just $4.7 million for a new $36.1 million. It did pass a major milestone as it crossed $250 million worldwide. It will probably not be enough to actually cross profitability but, hey, Christopher Nolan certainly tried.

While numbers aren't …

THIS WEEK'S BEST BETS
An elegy of exile and an epic immersion into the world of rural Italy during the Mussolini years, Francesco Rosi’s sublime adaptation of the memoirs of the painter, physician, and political activist Carlo Levi, "Christ Stopped at Eboli" (1979) brings a monument of 20th-century autobiography to the screen with quiet grace and solemn beauty. Banished to a desolate southern …

New in Theaters Sept. 18: Infidel

Anticipation for Tenet has tapered off and with more movies either delaying their openings - or rumors to such a move - it's going to be a bleak fall season for movie theaters. Tenet should have no problem holding on to the top spot - and a few more markets (though not the major markets of New York, Los Angeles or San Franciso... yet) are opening up, so it will be interesting to see what this …

One step forward, two steps back as it now looks like Tenet's ambitious plan to get people back into theaters has not instilled confidence that people are ready to commit to returning. Now that Wonder Woman 1984, The King's Man Candyman have all been delayed, it is sounding more and more like Disney is going to also delay Black Widow (currently scheduled for November 06) and Soul (November 20th) …

Weekend Box Office: Tenet Remains on Top, Broken Hearts Gallery Lands in Fourth

Chris Kavan - wrote on 09/13/20 at 08:29 PM CT

Once again, the biggest news over the weekend didn't concern any of the film currently playing at the box office, but rather the uncertain future of theaters. Wonder Woman 1984, which was poised to be the biggest film of October, has been delayed until December - where Dune (which just dropped an amazing first trailer) is still (for the moment) also opening. Another wide release, the horror …

New in Theaters Sept. 11: The Broken Hearts Gallery

Chris Kavan - wrote on 09/10/20 at 07:09 PM CT

Tenet finally opened and was... pretty good. And, as predicted, Christopher Nolan's pandemic-era blockbuster IS going to be playing in Los Angeles... in drive-ins at least. Considering drive-in theaters have been making bank of late, it could actually improve the film's chances. In other news, Sony has explicitly stated they will release NO films as long as the pandemic keeps theaters closed - …

The Croods: A New Age, Run and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Labor Day has come and gone and we can look forward to fall (or winter, if you've gone from high topping 100 to the forties in one day) - but what can we look forward to in movies? Well, if theaters manage to remain open in the coming months, the sequel to The Croods is on the horizon and, sticking to my guns in covering streaming titles of note, the thriller Run (a victim of these Covid times) …

THIS WEEK'S BEST BETS
In "Graveyards of Honor" (1975/2002 -- Japanese) Two peerless masters of Japanese cinema - Kinji Fukasaku ("Battles without Honor and Humanity," "Battle Royale") and Takashi Miike ("Dead or Alive," "Audition") - present their own distinctive adaptations of yakuza expert Goro Fujita's gangster novel "Graveyard of Honor," each tapping into the zeitgeist of a distinct period …
