‘The New Mutants’ Being Left Out to Die

Many of us have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Josh Boone’s The New Mutants to finally release. However, we had no idea it would be like this… A theatrical date was finally scheduled for August 28 but it was assumed that New Mutants, like many other films, would continue to get postponed due to Covid-19. Nope. Unlike Mulan, Tenet, Black Widow, and Wonder Woman 1984 Boone’s film is being made to walk the box office plank as no adjustments were made to it’s release just a few days away. Not only will the movie have an awkward debut that many won’t be able to attend/will be unwilling to attend but it has been stated that some critics have not even had the chance to prescreen the film to provide reviews… What the hell? Clearly, Disney is trying to take Covid-19 as a blessing as it’s allowing them to release this movie with no prospects for success. Why this is a positive for the studio is because it allows them to get rid of the …

Rebirth of the ‘Percy Jackson’ Series?

As we all know, just a couple months ago Disney absorbed 20th Century Fox leading to the return of the X-Men and Fantastic Four to Marvel Studios. Of course, this also meant that lesser known IP’s were acquired by Disney as well. There is one in particular I believe is worth pointing out and that would be the Percy Jackson series which had two films produced by 20th Century Fox. I wouldn’t call either of these films successes. Hell, neither would the author of the book series who is hilariously unapologetic over how much he hates these things. Any-who, regardless of their mediocre box office, the rights to the Percy Jackson series now belong to Disney! Why should this matter? Well, interestingly enough the publisher for the books is none other than Disney-Hyperion… Some might be thinking, why would a Disney published book have a movie made over at Fox? Well, publishing rights and film rights are different things! Also, just because a studio buys film rights to a book doesn’t mean they ever have …

‘Dark Phoenix’ Final Trailer- Oh Boy…

Fox Studios dropped the FINAL trailer for Dark Phoenix yesterday and, well, it is what it is? I do not understand how you can F%##$ up an iconic and legendary comic story such as this. Well, even more mind boggling is how you can goof it twice! I wanted to give this movie the benefit of the doubt. After all, I have been a fan of other non-accurate adaptations of this franchise in the past! Maybe it’s the total flop that was Apocalypse,  maybe it was the completion of the Disney/Fox deal, or maybe it was those damn cheap looking costumes shown in the first trailer, I don’t know! I just know that rather than anger or disapproval of what I have seen I actually just do not care. Seeing the final trailer yesterday gave me no emotions. I saw what I saw and went back to my bagel without another thought. In my opinion, this is worse than hating something. We all know of movies so bad that we love them! However, this looks …
