Did Solo Really ‘Bomb’ In China?

Words matter, so if you read ‘China Box Office: ‘Solo’ Bombs With Third-Place $10.1M Opening’ from The Hollywood Reporter you’re likely to assume that the movie failed there. And in a sense it did, though Star Wars movies since being purchased by Disney have underperformed in the Middle Kingdom before–Rogue One: A Star Wars Story […]

Tomb Raider – Trailer

Captain America: Civil War -Review

And there are ways to program against the box-office behemoth that is Captain America: Civil War, though pitting it against another superhero movie is probably not it. In other words, I’m saying Warner Bros moving Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice from the same release date was, […]

My problem is that it’s hard […]
