Soccer Mommy Chases Down Happiness on ‘Bloodstream’

Soccer Mommy Chases Down Happiness on ‘Bloodstream’
Following her performance at Bernie Sanders’ campaign rally in Houston Sunday, Soccer Mommy has released the third and final single from her album Color Theory, out this Friday via Loma Vista.

The track, “Bloodstream,” is the album opener, and a meditation on childhood loneliness and chasing down happiness. “Hydrangeas blooming of the branches of park trees/It’s a half-hearted calm — the way I’ve felt since I was 13,” Sophie Allison sings over a churning guitar that wouldn’t be out of place in a Nineties teen comedy. “‘Cause I may not feel it now,

Ghostbusters: Afterlife Star Promises That The Film Will Be Really Funny

Ghostbusters: Afterlife Star Promises That The Film Will Be Really Funny
While the debut trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife hit the sweet spot between mystery and nostalgia, some fans have been somewhat concerned about the upcoming pic’s comedic elements, or lack thereof.

Essentially, fans have been wondering whether writer-director Jason Reitman – son of the original Ghostbusters movies’ helmer, Ivan Reitman – will nail the horror-comedy tone that was so noticeable in his father’s beloved ’80s classics. Clearly, the serious tone of the spooky two-and-a-half minute preview clip is eerie and intriguing, for sure, but the question still remains: Will Ghostbusters: Afterlife be laugh-out-loud funny like the iconic Og films?

Well, in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, star Finn Wolfhard has gone on record to placate fans and has promised them that Ghostbusters: Afterlife is going to be a super funny movie. Here’s the rundown, courtesy of THR:

The trailer only showed some of it, but it’s a

The Haunting Of Hill House Star Says Season 2 Is Amazing

The Haunting Of Hill House Star Says Season 2 Is Amazing
The first season of Mike Flanagan’s The Haunting of Hill House was one of the most effective horror series in memory, and one that rewards multiple viewings. A second season is now in its way, with the focus switching to The Haunting of Bly Manor, an adaptation of Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw. Flanagan has already described the new season as even more terrifying than the first, and now series actor Oliver Jackson-Cohen has revealed that the director has “surpassed” himself with the new episodes.

Speaking to Collider, Jackson-Cohen, who played Luke Crain in The Haunting of Hill House, had this to say about why fans should be excited for season 2:

“I have to say, it’s quite strange. It was quite strange at the beginning going back because it’s Victoria Pedretti and I – we both played twins last year – and so we’re back

Box-Office Weekend: Birds of Prey Takes Flight

Despite debuting on top of the box-office weekend, Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn didn’t reach the $45 million that Warner Bros. expected for the film. Instead, the film brought in $33.3 million, which was easily bested the second-place finisher, Bad Boys for Life, by $21.3 million.

Falling out of first place for the first time in four weeks, Bad Boys for Life took in $12 million over the weekend. The film now boasts a total of $166.3 million. Also dropping a spot to third place due to the opening of Birds of Prey was 1917, which added $9 million over the weekend to give the war epic a seven-week total of $132.5 million. Falling to fourth from third was Dolittle, which finished with $6.7 million over the weekend, giving the film a four-week tally of $64 million.

Leap frogging to the fifth spot from sixth last week was Jumanji: The Next Level which

‘The Invisible Man’ Super Bowl Teaser: Blumhouse Reimagines The Universal Monster As An Abusive Ex

So far, 2020 has not been a great year for horror films. “The Turning,” “Gretel & Hansel,” and “The Grudge” have all been massive disappointments, both creatively and financially. Well, Blumhouse is hoping that by the end of February, the genre’s luck in the year will change thanks to the upcoming film “The Invisible Man.”

And as seen in the new Super Bowl teaser for “The Invisible Man,” the film is using the iconic character in a completely new way.

Box Office 2020: ‘Bad Boys for Life’ Leads Second Worst Super Bowl Weekend

  • Indiewire
Even though Super Bowl weekend is always a must-to-avoid for distributors–due to social activities in the days ahead of Sunday’s big game– this year fewer people went out to movies than just once before in box office history.

That said, this weekend marked a 10% weekend uptick against last year’s rock bottom. Next weekend, things will look up with Warner Bros.DC sequel “Birds of Prey,” starring Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. But among troubling box-office signs were weak starts for two new genre titles, “Gretel and Hansel” (United Artists) and “The Rhythm Section” (Paramount).

These movies did poorly even by the minimum standards set for second-tier entries. Their competition? The global Netflix debut of Sundance pop star documentary “Taylor Swift: Miss Americana.” Interestingly, the record for an opening against the Super Bowl came from “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never,” which grossed over $30 million.

‘Bad Boys For Life’ Drives Towards $300M Global; China Stall Impacting WW 2020 – International Box Office

  • Deadline
Sony’s Bad Boys For Life continues to lead the international box office, taking the top spot for the 3rd weekend in a row. The offshore frame was $30.8M in 63 markets for an overseas cume of $142.7M and a worldwide total of $291M to date. Globally, it’s the biggest in the franchise and is holding well, down just 38% in the already opened offshore hubs.

The Top 5 are currently the UK ($14.8M), Germany ($12.7M), Mexico ($10.5M), Australia ($10M) and Russia ($9.1M). Italy is still to open.

As was the case last weekend, it’s likely a local Chinese movie might have been at the top of the chart, but given theaters across the vast nation have been shuttered due to the spreading coronavirus, screens remain dark. When that will change is still unclear, though we do know that a series of Hollywood titles slotted for upcoming release have now been put on hold indefinitely.

Weekend Box Office Should Keep Pace Despite Super Bowl Dead Zone

Weekend Box Office Should Keep Pace Despite Super Bowl Dead Zone
This Super Bowl weekend, fewer movie tickets will sell than any weekend this year. But ticket sales should still improve over last year. Because studios always steer clear of this weekend, believing that football fans won’t venture into theaters for all three days, soft grosses are a self-fulfilling prophecy.

This year’s weekend uptick could reach a projected $95-100 million, compared to $74 million last year. January 2019 might have sold the fewest tickets in a month in decades. But don’t count on the year ahead to yield a huge bounty: 2019 opened six releases that grossed over $400 million domestic, which may not happen in 2020.

Most of the good news this weekend will come from holdovers. The two newbies, “Gretel & Hansel” (United Artists) and “The Rhythm Section” (Paramount), represent more fresh studio product than usual for this date. But their combined gross might be little more than the $12-13 million

‘The Turning’ review: Dir. Floria Sigismondi (2020)

Henry James’ The Turning of the Screw gets a fresh adaptation that began life as a reported Spielberg passion project. After a long drawn our production, how does this re-telling stack up?

Universal/YouTube

Set in the early 90’s (for reasons that are not entirely clear) Mackenzie Davis plays Kate, a young teacher who has left her job to go and work as a governess for a young girl, Flora Fairchild (Brooklynn Prince), who has been contained to her family’s grand manor and its grounds ever since witnessing her parents death. Kate sees a chance to help a girl in need, but things take a turn with the arrival of Flora’s brother, Miles (Finn Wolfhard), which coincides with Kate beginning to experience strange and ghostly visions around the manor.

The setup is a classic one and remains largely unchanged from the spine of Henry James’ novella. But that
