According to Box Office Mojo, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore earned just over $334 million worldwide, which is a lot of money till you take into account that it cost $200 million to produce, which makes it a failure, box office-wise (what I like to think of as ‘soft’ failure, in that there’s clearly […]
The trailer for Disney’s Artemis Fowl–based on the Young Adult novels by Eoin Colfer–dropped a few hours hours ago…and it’s a mess. For a start, it’s nothing that we haven’t seen before. Now, there’s little new under the sun, so it’s in the way that you arrange those familiar elements that matter most and this […]
Netflix’s Locke & Key started life as an Amazon series, but when development was abandoned it was picked up by Netflix, who went on to raze what was built prior, and rebuilt from the ground up. And it’s pretty good, though I haven’t read the graphic novels written by Joe Hill and illustrated by Gabriel […]
Fast & Furious 9 as a title just feels awkward to me. Maybe it’s the combination of an ampersand with a number. Though the trailer itself? It’s fucking bonkers. I’ve never been a fan of the Fast & Furious movies but it feels like it’s part of the MCU’s multiverse because the cars and their […]
Before I begin I should mention that I intend to stop posting teaser trailers (unaccompanied by a full trailer) because the former tends to give so little in the way of information that’s it’s almost pointless. This way at you get the teaser AND the full trailer at the same time, which as far as I […]
The title, while not quite accurate, sums up the little spider above. It’s official name is Eriovixia gryffindori, a new species discovered in India. Its scientific name was inspired by House Gryffindor, one of the four Houses that make up Hogwarts, from the Harry Potter series of books by J.K. Rowling.
Looks okay, by which I mean those of us really into Harry Potter will probably have a good time. I was never particularly a fan–I don’t hate it, though I don’t particularly love it, either. In other words I don’t care one way or the other. Though Warner Bros is betting a lot that there are enough less apathetic movie […]
I actually enjoyed the original Now You See Me, despite that the story made no sense
Legendary Pictures despite a somewhat acrimonious split from production partner Warner Bros, has been trying to make a go of it with Universal Pictures.
I’ve got to admit that despite the presence of Adam Sandler in a movie virtually guaranteeing that it’s going to appeal to the lowest possible denominator, I am hoping for Pixels. Maybe it’s the presence of Chris Columbus (the director of Home Alone, Adventures in Babysitting, two Harry Potter movies, etc) and actors like Josh Gad, Sean Bean and Peter […]
