Movie Review – Ready or Not (2019)

Ready Or Not, 2019.

Directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett.

Starring Samara Weaving, Andie MacDowell, Mark O’Brien, Adam Brody, Henry Czerny, Nicky Guadagni, Melanie Scrofano, Kristian Bruun, and Elyse Levesque.

Synopsis:

A bride’s wedding night is flipped upside down when the family she marries into has a strange tradition. Instead of a beautiful night with her new husband, Grace must fight her way through the new in-laws to stay alive.

My feelings on Ready Or Not leave me more conflicted than the two battling sides in the actual film. On the one hand, this is a quick, little horror-comedy romp that doesn’t need much thought. On the other hand, Ready Or Not is a movie done dirty by its comedic elements as there’s a seriously scary film deep down inside.

Box Office Report Card: Studios Get Their Summer Grades

  • Variety
Studios got badly burned this summer.

From May to August, popcorn season in movie speak, the film flops piled up and the big hits were few and far between for nearly every company except Disney.

As a whole, summer did little to instill confidence in the state of moviegoing. To be sure, there were successes such as “The Lion King,” “John Wick 3,” and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” but the onslaught of costly duds such as “Dark Phoenix” and “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” ensured that nobody emerged unscathed. By the time Labor Day has passed, summer moviegoing season should end up almost 3% behind 2018, according to Comscore, pushing the year-to-date box office down more than 6%.

This summer also widened the gap between the have and have-nots, as independent comedies and dramas continue struggling to find an audience. That chasm left Disney looming high about the competition as other studios

James Wan’s New Horror Film Will Be An Original With Practical Effects

James Wan is currently riding high on the success of his last film, the critically acclaimed monster hit Aquaman, but he’s already looking forward to his next directorial feature, which he recently took to his Facebook page to tease.

In addition to revealing photos from the location scout, Wan posted the following message for his fans:

“There’s been a bit of speculation as to what my next project is… all I’ll say is, I’m super excited to go back to my indie roots with this hard-r thriller. An original horror idea (not a reboot/remake or anything based on existing IP) with old school, practical effects and no giant, blue screen sets. That’s all I’ll say for now,”

‘Hobbs & Shaw’ Dwarfs Quentin Tarantino With a $60 Million Opening

‘Hobbs & Shaw’ Dwarfs Quentin Tarantino With a $60 Million Opening
Here’s 2019 movie reality: “Fast & Furious” offshoot “Hobbs & Shaw” — starring Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, and Idris Elba — opened over 50% bigger than than “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” easily besting Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie.

That’s not to say “Once Upon a Time” isn’t doing well enough; it’s already made $78 million. However, it illustrates why studios are reluctant to take risks on originals. Even with Quentin Tarantino directing A-list stars, the film comes in behind a franchise spinoff.

With “The Lion King” placing between the two more recent releases, total business edged up a few million over last year. Year to date remains close to a half million down, over 6%, with “Hobbs” looking like the final summer release expected to open this well.

Irrespective of high-end media coverage and awards potential, “Hobbs” hits core moviegoers’ sweet spot much more than “Once Upon a Time.

Hobbs & Shaw Races to the Top of the Box Office with $60.8M
Hobbs & Shaw took the number one spot at this weekend's box office after earning $60.8 million domestically. The Fast and Furious spin-off came in a bit lower than originally thought, but it made a massive $181 million globally. With that being said, the movie still hasn't opened in China and South Korea, which are two of the franchise's biggest markets. With a budget reportedly around $180 million, Hobbs & Shaw is going to need the global boost later this month.

Disney's The Lion King was easily able to take the second position this weekend after bringing in $38.2 million. While the remake has been criticized by fans and animators who worked on the 1994 animated original, it is still making a killing at the box office and has crossed the $1 billion mark globally. Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood took number three after bringing in $20 million in its second weekend in theaters.

‘Aquaman’ Director James Wan Returning to Horror Roots for Next Film

Before diving back into the underwater world of Atlantis for Warner Bros. and DC’s “Aquaman 2,” slated to begin pre-production next year, director James Wan will first circle back to the horror genre for his next film. Fans of his deep catalogue of nightmare fuel, from “Saw” to “Insidious” and “The Conjuring,” will have to wait for details, as plot specifics remain under wraps, according to Variety.

Wan conceived of the story idea with his fiancée Ingrid Bisu, star of “The Nun” (which Wan executive-produced) and “Toni Erdmann.” The yet-to-be-titled project hasn’t set up a screenwriter at this time. Wan is not a writer by trade, but has story credits on most of his films.

The news adds to a busy slate for the prolific Hollywood figure, whose commercial track record continues to grow more robust. Wan recently produced such fearsome box-office hits as “The Curse of La Llorona” and “Annabelle Comes Home.
