Party Down Revival Series Is Happening at Starz

Party Down Revival Series Is Happening at Starz
Starz announced it is reviving the party and developing a six-part Party Down limited series. The new original comedy is being developed and executive produced by Party Down alumni Rob Thomas along with John Enbom, Paul Rudd and Dan Etheridge. Enbom also serves as showrunner. The limited series is produced for Starz by Lionsgate Television.

Party Down follows a Los Angeles catering team - a sextet of Hollywood wannabes stuck working for tips while hoping for their "big break." Each episode of this half-hour comedy finds the hapless catering team working a new event - and inevitably getting tangled up with the colorful guests and their absurd lives.

"Before the cast of Party Down became well-known television and movie actors and award winners, they were all wearing the same pink bowties as part of a less than competent team of Los Angeles cater-waiters while chasing their dreams of stardom on the Starz series,

‘Party Down’ Limited Series Revival in Development at Starz

‘Party Down’ Limited Series Revival in Development at Starz
Are we having fun yet? Because a limited series revival of the cult comedy series “Party Down” is being developed at Starz, more than 10 years since its second season wrapped on the network in June 2010.

Starz announced that the six-part limited series is being executive produced and developed by “Party Down” alumni Rob Thomas, along with John Enbom, Paul Rudd, and Dan Etheridge. Enbom also serves as showrunner.

Cast members have not been confirmed for the revival, though with plenty of fan support for the series, and a cast reunion hosted by Vulture back in 2019 which teased a possible third season, it’s likely some familiar faces will be back. The original series, which launched in 2009, starred Adam Scott, Ken Marino, Ryan Hansen, Martin Starr, and Lizzy Caplan as failed actors, dreamers, and underachievers moonlighting as mostly miserable cater waiters to the rich in Los Angeles, with Jane Lynch starring in the first season,

New York City Movie Theaters Can Open at Limited Capacity This March

New York City Movie Theaters Can Open at Limited Capacity This March
The outlook for movie theaters, and the movie business in general, just got much better. New York City, one of the biggest moviegoing markets in the world, will finally allow theaters to reopen their doors next month. This means that the box office, which has been suffering greatly since March 2020, may finally get a much-needed boost. It also means that upcoming blockbusters have a much better chance of meeting their current release dates.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made the announcement on Monday. Movie theaters will be allowed to open again on March 5. It will, however, be under tight restrictions, in terms of capacity and regulations to help ensure the safety of moviegoers. This comes as theaters in the city have been closed for just shy of a year. Here's what Cuomo had to say.

"Movie theaters in New York will be brought in line with the rest of the

Ghostbusters: Afterlife receives PG-13 rating for “supernatural action and suggestive material”
With the highly-anticipated Ghostbusters: Afterlife, the follow-up film to Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II, currently scheduled to debut in theatres on November 11th, 2021, the film has received its age rating. Similar to Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, the MPA has officially handed Jason Reitman’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife a PG-13 rating for “supernatural action and suggestive material.” Although fans […]

Ghostbusters: Afterlife Is Officially Rated PG-13 for Supernatural Action

Ghostbusters: Afterlife Is Officially Rated PG-13 for Supernatural Action
Ghostbusters: Afterlife has received an official rating, which teases some new "supernatural action." Jason Reitman's highly anticipated sequel was supposed to have already opened in theaters, but it will now arrive in November. The public health crisis found studios scrambling to figure out how to handle their 2020 releases, with many of them deciding to push back to 2021. As of this writing, analysts seem positive about a return to movie theaters by late this summer, or early fall, which means there's a good possibility that Ghostbusters: Afterlife will hit theaters this year.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife has been rated PG-13 by the MPAA for "supernatural action and suggestive material." The rating should come as no surprise for fans of the previous installments. With that being said, the iconic 1984 original was only rated PG for its "language, innuendo and potentially scary scenes." When looking back, if Ghostbusters were released today, it would likely

Gremlins 3 is Inevitable if HBO Max Series Succeeds, Says Zach Galligan

Gremlins 3 is Inevitable if HBO Max Series Succeeds, Says Zach Galligan
In an age of reboots and long-gestating sequels, Gremlins 3 remains oddly unrealized. While over 30 years have passed since 1990’s celebrated-but-divisive Gremlins 2: The New Batch stumbled at the box office, there’s been no shortage of fruitless teases ever since. Yet, the property still has a pulse, with an HBO Max animated prequel series in the works, and this week saw Zach Galligan reunite with Gizmo for a commercial that might provide the blueprint—story-wise and production-wise—for the threequel, as the star seems to hint.

The Mountain Dew Zero Sugar commercial (seen below), chock-full of franchise-evocative Easter eggs, shows movie protagonist Billy Peltzer (Galligan) hyping the soda before unwisely giving Gizmo a gulp (as if he didn’t know any better), leading to an all-too-familiar population outbreak. Billy’s daughter reacts with an exasperated sigh.

While the clip is hardly canon, Galligan explained to EW how the puppets-teeming

‘Black Widow’ vs. ‘F9’: Which Summer Blockbuster Will Blink First?

‘Black Widow’ vs. ‘F9’: Which Summer Blockbuster Will Blink First?
Disney’s “Black Widow” and Universal’s “F9” are poised to kick off summer moviegoing season. Yet it’s unlikely either blockbuster will actually arrive on schedule.

While neither film has been postponed, industry experts and insiders have been speculating that Hollywood’s next round of release date delays will begin to impact the middle of 2021.

At this point, it’s almost expected that movies due out in the first half of the year will be moved yet again. With coronavirus cases rampant and the vaccine rollout going more slowly than many hoped, studios and by extension, cinema operators, are essentially in the same situation they were 10 months ago: audiences aren’t going to the movies.

Even with President Joe Biden’s recent announcement that the U.S. will be able to vaccinate 300 million people by July, it’s still too soon to tell how quickly Americans will be able to resume everyday activities.

Twins 2 Script Is in Development and Still Happening Says a Hopeful Danny DeVito

Twins 2 Script Is in Development and Still Happening Says a Hopeful Danny DeVito
One of the oddest entries on both Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito's filmographies is the 1988 comedy Twins, which saw the two actors playing fraternal twins who had been separated at birth. The movie was an unexpected success and is still fondly remembered today. In an interview with CinemaBlend, DeVito recently confirmed that Twins 2, which has often been called Triplets, is currently in development.

"Yes. Yeah, we're working on it. It's been a while I know, but we're developing the screenplay right now. That's going to happen...hopefully."

A few years ago, the success of a movie that is a sequel to a comedy that came out in 1988 might have seemed questionable. But the last few years have taught us that nostalgia is the most powerful factor in the success of Hollywood these days. Projects like Bill and Ted Face the Music, Coming 2 America, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Cobra Kai,

Sony Pictures Posts $212M Profit In Third Quarter As Music Gets Boost From ‘Demon Slayer’ & Corp Ups Full-Year Forecast

Sony Pictures Posts $212M Profit In Third Quarter As Music Gets Boost From ‘Demon Slayer’ & Corp Ups Full-Year Forecast
Sony Pictures Entertainment recorded a $212M profit in the third quarter of Fiscal Year 2020, good for a 316% upward swing versus the similar period in 2019. The profit increase for the three months ended December 31, 2020 was due to lower theatrical marketing costs and higher TV licensing and home entertainment sales from prior year titles, Sony Corp said in announcing results from Tokyo today.

Sales in the Pictures division dropped 17% to $1.8B compared to Q3 last year given the absence of major theatrical releases as a result of the Covid-19 crisis and lower home entertainment and TV licensing sales from the current year titles.

The full-year forecast for Sony Pictures grew 50% to 74B yen ($704M), impacted by lower costs related to theatrical marketing and higher-than-expected home entertainment and TV business. However, sales are expected to be lower than the October outlook primarily due to delays in theatrical releases as cinemas remain closed in key markets.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife Turns Winston Zeddemore Into A Complete Character Says Ernie Hudson

Ghostbusters: Afterlife Turns Winston Zeddemore Into A Complete Character Says Ernie Hudson
The most iconic image from the original Ghostbusters films has Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, and Harold Ramis as the trio of scientists decked out in jumpsuits and ghost-hunting gear. But there was a fourth Ghostbuster in the shape of Winston Zeddemore, played by Ernie Hudson. In a recent interview with Michael Rosenbaum, Hudson explained how his character's role, which was written for Eddie Murphy in the original film, was drastically reduced while in production, but will become a complete character in Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

"We don't know a damn thing about Winston. With Bill Murray, we see him in his little studio, or Danny in his little lab, we get a sense of what is outside of what we're seeing. But with Winston, he's just there. He just pops up... In the beginning, there was a backstory [but] just before we started shooting, they wrote him out... Basically, instead of coming in page eight,

Denzel Washington’s ‘The Little Things’ Leads Box Office Despite HBO Max Debut

Denzel Washington’s ‘The Little Things’ Leads Box Office Despite HBO Max Debut
Would audiences pay to see a new movie on the big screen if they could watch the same title at home from the comfort of their couch? Prior to the pandemic, the response from theater operators and cinema purists would have been a resounding “no.”

Yet Hollywood is finding that, at least while a plague of Biblical proportion rages, the answer is: sorta.

The Little Things,” a crime thriller starring Denzel Washington and Rami Malek, topped domestic box office charts, debuting to $4.8 million from 2,171 venues in North America. At the same time, it was available to HBO Max subscribers for a monthly fee that’s less than a single movie ticket in some parts of the country. “The Little Things” is one of 17 films from Warner Bros. that will premiere simultaneously in cinemas and on the HBO Max streaming service.

In normal times, those box office receipts would spell disaster.

Movie Theaters Predicted to Rebound Big at the Box Office, But Not Until 2023

Movie Theaters Predicted to Rebound Big at the Box Office, But Not Until 2023
The good news for lovers of the cinematic experience? A trusted industry analyst believes that movie theaters will rebound to record levels. The bad news? This probably won't happen until 2023. But that does mean, perhaps, there is a light at the end of the tunnel for theater chains and studios that can ride out the storm. What this all boils down to is pent-up demand for moviegoing once it becomes safe to do so for the general public once again.

This box office prediction comes from Eric Wold of B. Riley Securities. Wold is a veteran analyst who is a trusted source for Wall Street types in this area. In a recent note to clients, Wold explained that companies in the exhibition space, such as AMC Theatres, have experienced slower-than-expected recovery following the disaster that was 2020. Much of this has to do with the fact that vaccine rollout has been messy and slow.

Movie Theaters Will Rebound To Box Office Record In 2023, Analyst Predicts, Though Vaccine Stumbles Hurt Near Term

Movie Theaters Will Rebound To Box Office Record In 2023, Analyst Predicts, Though Vaccine Stumbles Hurt Near Term
As exhibitors get set to report results from the last quarter of their annus horribilis, 2020, one Wall Street bull is predicting record box office in 2023.

Eric Wold, a veteran analyst with B. Riley Securities, acknowledged in a note to clients that exhibitors’ efforts to emerge from the abyss of Covid-19 have been hampered by the slower-than-expected vaccine rollout. Nevertheless, he continues to believe that pent-up demand will drive a steady burst of moviegoing once theaters reopen. Benchmarking to 2019, when domestic receipts totaled $11.4 billion, he projects that box office will drop 40% in 2021 and another 7% in 2022 before surging 7% to a new high in 2023. The previous high for domestic box office came in 2018, when it reached just shy of $11.9 billion. Wold’s report slightly lowered his outlook for 2021 and 2022 theatrical revenue.

In the note, Wold also raised his 12-month price targets on four stocks in the sector: AMC Entertainment, to $5.50 from $3.50; Imax to $28 from $26; Marcus Corp.
