We've got a while to wait before The Batman actually hits theaters. In the meantime, DC fans are doing what they can to get their Caped Crusader fix. Once such fan decided it would be a good idea to have a bot watch hours upon hours of Batman movies to see what an AI-generated script for a Batman movie would look like. As it turns out, it's insane, hilarious and downright incredible. This is the work of writer Keaton Patti. Recently, Patti took to Twitter to explain his process and shared the first full page of the script. That one page contains more talking points than perhaps all of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is really saying something. Here's what Patti had to say. "I forced a bot to watch over 1,000 hours of Batman movies and then asked it to write a Batman movie of its own. Here is the first page." The thing kicks off with our hero in the Batcave, who is celebrating as the city is now safe because he, and this is a direct quote, "punched a penguin into prison." … [Read more...] about AI Bot Writes Batman Movie Script and the First Page Is Pretty Hilarious

"'Stuber' should not be the same price as 'Avengers,'" says one distribution veteran as cinema chains debate whether to get more creative about what they charge. On its first Tuesday (July 16), the troubled action-comedy Stuber took in a surprisingly strong $1.4 million, up a huge 72 percent from the day before and not all that far behind the $2.2 million it earned Sunday. The secret behind the number wasn't a post-opening marketing blitz waged in hopes of salvaging the R-rated Fox film, but a "discount Tuesday." In thousands of theaters across the country, the cost of a ticket on that day can be a third of the normal price — as low as $6 in New York and Los Angeles, the two most expensive U.S. moviegoing markets, where a ticket now costs upward of $17 or $18 (and that's for a no-frills format). The overall revenue generated Tuesdays is substantial, fueling new momentum behind the argument that cinema chains should get more creative about what they charge, with such approaches … [Read more...] about Amid Box Office Woes, Momentum Grows for Variable Pricing at Movie Theaters
That's down from $9.26 in the second quarter. The average cost of a movie ticket in the U.S. dipped to $8.93 in the third quarter of 2019, down nearly 4 percent from $9.26 in the second quarter and up slightly from $8.83 during the same corridor at year ago, the National Association of Theatre Owners said Thursday. That puts the ticket average for the first nine months of this year at $9.08, compared to $9.11 for all of 2018. Fluctuations in price are due to the strength of the marketplace, as well as the demand for Imax and other premium formats. The more people spend, the more the average cost increases. NATO said revenue for the third quarter — July through September — hit $2.8 billion, up 3.5 percent from last year and helping to trim an overall downturn this year at the domestic box office. Admissions hit 316 million, up more than 2 percent year over year. In terms of demographics, Gen Z-ers and Millennials (ages 18-34) made up more than half of the moviegoing … [Read more...] about Average Movie Ticket Price Falls to $8.93 in Third Quarter
The singer served as the guest host of Monday's episode of 'The Late Late Show' and put her spin on one of James Corden's annual segments. Alicia Keys broke down 2019 when she served as the guest host of The Late Late Show on Monday. The singer played the piano as she recapped the past year. While James Corden usually performs the segment by speaking quickly, Keys opted to do a more low-key version and spoke slowly as she played the piano. She also asked the audience to sing with her at the end of each verse. Keys began the segment by mentioning that "Fleabag's priest couldn't get much hotter," while she also highlighted Beyonce's concert film Homecoming and the Starbucks cup that made an appearance on Game of Thrones. "Aunt Becky paid off a ton of schools. We got Apple TV and Disney+. John Legend was named the sexiest," she continued. "Greta Thunberg gave a climate talk. NASA had an all-female spacewalk. 2019 showed us women are strong cause hot girl summer lasts all year long."
