They absolutely need to get this over to Lucasfilm asap. It would make me very happy to see her as a younger Leia in a prequel series or movie. She looks perfect for it and it would make my realism factor very happy.

Now, this is a family friendly forum, what you do with your realism factor is your own private business

Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets

A sequel to Tomb Raider (2018) is definitely in the works. I was hoping there would be one given how it ended but I hadn't heard anything about it up and till now

Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets

You probably heard towards the end of last year that Cineworld wasn't doing too well and was having to close down. There were concerns that Odeon would follow suit after lockdown No. 3 but the good news is that its parent company, AMC Theatres in the US, has secured a tonne of money to keep it going for a while. I am hoping that as long as the vaccine rollout continues and restrictions are eased in time for summer that we will get some cracking films in the second half of the year and things can get back to normal release date wise.

Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets

So Tenet is apparently doing very well digitally over a month since it's release:

https://www.indiewire.com/2021/02/vo...ld-1234613701/

Quote:
It left room for two titles to continue flying high with “Tenet” at $5.99, and “News of the World” at $19.99. Like last week, each placed #1 on two of the four charts we track.

Ongoing interest in Christopher Nolan’s film may seem ironic as it was the last major Warners release to see a traditional rollout. The studio reportedly recoups 70 percent of VOD rental; if there were 1 million rentals in a week, at the current price of $5.99, it would generate nearly $4.2 million. That would justify delaying a move to HBO Max.

As a PVOD, Universal sees a more generous revenue share of 80 percent on “News of the World” rentals. For a $4 million return — a nice bounty for a film with a reported $38 million budget and a sale to Netflix for the rest of the world — it would need 250,000 rentals.
But if you consider those numbers of $4.2 million at a price of $6 a rental and $4 million at a price of $20 a rental as very good you can see why studios do not want to release direct to VOD.

Tenet opened to $20 million on it's first weekend with most of the U.S theatres being closed. Tenet's entire domestic run was poor and was hardly seen by anyone but it still generated a total $58 million which will be more than it looks like it can amount on VOD.

Worth keeping in mind when we wonder why films are constantly being kept back.

The main motivation to release them at the moment would be a loss leader for someone like Apple to promote their streaming services.

And what a load of rubbish it is.

Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets

Well that was really confusing until I realised that "News of the World" is the title of a film.

Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets

I thought so to when I first saw the title, I assumed it was about the hacking scandal and was going to be one of those films that tells a story which happened in real life and gets nominated for a tonne of Oscars. I love Tom Hanks though and I will defo give it a go.
