Sunday AM UPDATE FINAL: With the No. 1 $31.5M opening success of Ford v Ferrari this morning and an overall $52M global debut, high praise is to be given to 20th Century Fox Film president Emma Watts and execs Mike Ireland and Steve Asbell, who have been shepherding and advocating this project through all its iterations for years. Chernin Entertainment also produced. A $120M endgame, if not more, is in store for Ford v Ferrari at the domestic box office. Finally, a great start for Fox in the new Disney empire after misfires Ad Astra, Stuber, and Dark Phoenix, to name a few. On Friday, Disney planted flags in the 2020-2023 release schedule for big Fox with 12 titles next year (not counting Searchlight) going to 7 pics in 2023.

Fantastic beasts and where to find them
Look, sometimes an entire episode is a big swing and a miss. It happens. It’s somewhat surprising that it happened while Scarlett Johansson hosted, because her previous five hosting gigs have yielded consistently solid episodes. But that’s the nature of the Saturday Night Live beast: Some weeks everything just sorta sits there, comic-adjacent but never really coming into focus. Let’s put it this way: you know it’s not the show’s week when even Bowen Yang’s Chen Baio fails to truly land. It’s tempting to invent reasons why this episode dragged for most of the evening. But it’s much easier to simply realize that a show that starts from scratch every week will collectively falter every once in a while, even with a proven excellent host such as Johansson. It’s more than likely all will be forgotten and forgiven once Eddie Murphy hosts next week, but for now we can only wonder what might have been. With all that said, there were a few … [Read more...] about Scarlett Johansson on ‘SNL’: 3 Sketches You Have to See
The next phase of the MCU will be kickstarted not with a movie, but with the shows being developed for Disney+, particularly WandaVision, featuring Wanda Maximoff and the android Vision. According to Charles Murphy, of the news source Murphy's Multiverse, a major way that the show will lead to the next slate of MCU films is an appearance by Doctor Strange in the final episodes of WandaVision. It has been rumored that Benedict Cumberbatch will be on set for the final week of principal photography for the show. The rumor confirms what was first announced at San Diego Comic-Con, that WandaVision will be leading directly into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. From what we know so far, based on the comics from which the Disney+ show is inspired, the series starts with Wanda and Vision living in apparent marital bliss within a standard sitcom format. But over time, the show will evolve into something much more sinister as it is revealed that the whole thing is an illusion Wanda … [Read more...] about Doctor Strange to Return in WandaVision Disney+ Series Finale?
For a movie that may not have been made if not for leaked test footage, Deadpool is proved to be a box office gamble that has already paid off in spades. The superhero adventure has taken in $236.8 million domestically and $256.2 million internationally for a global total of $493 million, and it will likely cross the $500 million milestone sometime this week. Heading into its third frame in theaters, Deadpool will face three new releases at the box office this weekend, Lionsgate's Gods of Egypt, 20th Century Fox's Eddie the Eagle and Open Road Films' Triple 9. If the projections at Pro.BoxOffice.com are accurate, Deadpool should have no trouble winning for a third weekend in a row. While Deadpool has had success beyond most analysts' expectations, its second weekend drop of 57.4% could mean that it may not have as much staying power in theaters. For example, throughout Star Wars: The Force Awakens' 10-week run in theaters, they have only posted a decrease of more than 50% once, and … [Read more...] about Can Gods of Egypt Take Down Deadpool at the Box Office?
