Will The Sleeping Box Office Giant Wake Up For Tarantino? Let’s Hope

Will The Sleeping Box Office Giant Wake Up For Tarantino? Let’s Hope
When will the Sleeping Giant wake up?

In the second half of every year for the past 10, the grown-up audience has opened its eyes, stretched its legs and gone to the movies in numbers big enough to make a certified hit of at least one non-animated, not-too-scary, non-sequel drama.

If ascent to the year-end box office Top 15 is a fair though somewhat arbitrary measure of hit status, the giant — who rarely rises in the first half for anything but action, comedy and the occasional fright drama like Us or Get Out — has consistently delivered. But not on a reliable schedule.

Last year, A Star Is Born, released on October 5, and Bohemian Rhapsody, which followed on November 2, both made the Top 15 with help from that large, 40-and-older audience, which manages to account for about 42% of domestic ticket sales, despite its seasonal habits. The year before, only Dunkirk, released on July 21, made the cut.

New Line noted that the video game “Mortal Kombat 11” was released in April and has become the most successful launch in franchise history.

The film “is an epic telling of the Battle of Midway, a turning point in the Pacific theater of World War II. The story follows the real soldiers and aviators who pulled off the unbelievable to turn the tide of the war in June 1942.”

I’m a sucker for war movies and this actually looks better than I thought it would. I’m not a fan of Emmerich’s recent work, but I’ll give this movie a shot. Mostly because of the impressive cast that it has.

While Emmerich’s last film a failed return to past glories in “Independence Day: Resurgence,” his latest, “Midway” is another attempt at epic action filmmaking, but this time through the lens of history.

Shanghai Film Festival Crowns Iranian Drama ‘Castle Of Dreams’ With Trio Of Prizes
China’s leading film festival crowned Iranian drama Castle Of Dreams with three prizes on Sunday evening.
