Movie News #63 - Christian Bale, Nicole Kidman AMC, Pearl, The Whale and more!
Hello film friends, welcome back to the show James and I, glad to be here and discussing the latest
news from the film and television industry. I'm so happy to be here. I sent some sarcasm I'm pumped I can't wait it's been quite an interesting week actually and also in terms of the box office it's been very unique because very unique because we don't have the top two films one was one Re-release and the film in second place A film that came out three months ago four months ago so at the box office it's been another week of showing, um, what we talked about last week at work everyone says, oh i don't wanna go to the
movies it's too hot to go back to school yeah so spider-man no way home
more fun stuff the re-release of homecome of no way home it really is much
more fun it has to be it has to be its a game i mean what they added 10
more scenes some
more jokes no they made the credits longer and i actually got first place this weekend with six s million dollars because that's pretty good for a re-release of a
movie that came out this year so marvel is back on top top gun no need to recognize top gun maverick with 4.5 million still in cinemas is in second place.
Yes we didn't release any extra fun stuff it's already packed with fun stuff there is so much fun stuff it will never leave theaters top gun maverick when did it come out in may and it's second place now it is september september this is the longest run i can think of in the last memorable years in recent memory i can't think of anything this has done to make 4.5 million dollars and it's what modern box office and modern cinema experiences it's in its fourth month where it's usually just the first few weeks and on top of that it's already out digitally so you can buy it at home yeah it's all yeah we'll get to that people are still going to the
It's amazing, it's crazy to see, yes, Top Gun. It's that word of mouth everyone tells everyone they know this is the best
movie ever and you can see it a few
more times in cinemas in imax hell yeah third place was super pets uh four by four million sorry im so dumb today he had his factor meal so he feels fine a good workout ripping the kettlebells got my lemonade then we came in fourth place beast idris elvis film with a respectable 4 million for his third weekend he's doing quite well well wise the invite last week's re-release came in fifth place this week with 3.8 million i've heard mixed things about this
movie from some friends so i'm not sure i'll be seeing that the Title itself is weird because horror
movie came out titled Invitation.
Yes, recently, yes, so I'm surprised they had the same title already out, but this one has vampires, oh yes, so it's different, it looks like it's ready or not with vampires. The other invitation horror
movie is great. Yes, he is really good. Highly recommended Domestic that's very good for the
movie and then Thor 11 Thunder ranked 7th with 2.7 2.4 million box office gross so we get two old
movies from earlier this year dominating that it is crazy to be in our
news when the Rings of Power debuted on Thursday. We did a review of the first two episodes yesterday.
Review reaction recap, all bundled into one. Look at it. We gave our honest opinion about the show. It's a pretty solid start, but you know, I think there are some things that we wish they'd done a little bit differently, but I'm very excited to see where this goes tonight. We have House of the Dragon Episode Three. I think it will wait until we watch that and there will be a synopsis and recap episode on Tuesday I haven't watched the trailer yet but I don't want to see trailers for any of these episodes though the trailers though they're something like at the end of each episode so little are teasers for the whole season so i like that a lot yeah yeah that's cool and um
news the pale blue eye released their first picture of
bale that's one, about what we've been talking about is our excitement for this scott cooper film cooper yeah is coming from to netflix will be out in january with
bale and it's a great look that he'll be playing a victorian-era detective who's starring with what his name is edgar allan poe works as his assistant who solves a murder and that's going to be out in theaters in december for christmas so we'll see it then so looks like it's the big one e oscar nominee from netflix this year to release it in the week of christmas and then go to netflix for january. it looks like they are preparing this for osc ar season and i think scott cooper is without a doubt one of the most underrated and most underrated american directors working today.
Absolutely this could be his big hit everybody saw how everybody likes crazy heart but that's how it could be for him out of the ovens nobody saw it no yeah we saw it oh I love it out the oven its so good next we have winnie the pooh blood and treasure the trailer is finally out for the heavily rated r killer winnie the pooh
movie fan film basically and it looks hilarious uh very gory and bloody it's like these two this young couple come across like finds like where the animals used to live and like but nobody is around and christopher robin left them and now they just kill people.
It looks hilarious how are you how are you able to make this public domain yes properties it's over 100 years old so anyone can make anything about me now so you if you adapts you, if you want to adapt, uh, something that has been written it has to be a hundred years old before you can put it in the public domain or you have to buy the rights to it, but yes anyone can do it because you , anyone, can make a film about a Shakespeare play. yeah it's a century old so it depends how long it's been billed won't knock on your door bill shakespeare won't be like hey man where's my cut shakespeare is like ur-ur-ur-ur- great great grandson he will be like hey i own the rights i need a cut but i'm sure christopher robin wouldn't be happy with that a great character for kids i love him it's so much fun i can't wait to see it is probably very cheesy and silly moving towards baby names obviously
movies and tv and celebrities influence baby names every year and somehow the name thanos got into the top 10 most popular disney inspired baby names not popular baby names but disney inspired baby names but there are a lot of Disney names so that's actually very surprising something like 4,000 people have named their baby Thanos there's g I'll be in the next five years B.C Many be Thanos if you think about it it's a badass name it's a cool name Thanos because I don't know if you saw it that way if you had a kid named Dados you would only think of Thanos would have been just like your name thanos what do you want for dinner mac and cheese thanos put the ball down oh man thats funny thanos put your gauntlet on star lord stop bullying thanos lets get top gun back up top gun we got we gotta beat top gun reference yeah i mean come on for the second time this is raiders lost podcast you know top gun was released digitally and it has already become the best selling digital release of all time in US history so they like People the
movie in two days in two days people like the
movie alright Funko just unveiled the soprano characters from the legendary cast which you can pre-order now which oh yes pre-order too so i really want to love this cartoon when we were kids so maybe i need to understand that would be sick on the set we will have about 16 batman things i don't know maybe less within a month we look like a batman -podcast it would be cool to get tony soprano he would be sick uh next was shyla buff he was on uh what's the name of the actor he's the punisher john bernthal john bernthal has his own podcast , we're all real, um he makes you a little better than ours it's cool he has a podcast yeah its interesting but he had shiloh buff on and they apparently talked for a few hours and shyla buff revealed , that his film Honeyboy, which he produced and wrote and which was based on his life, his father was portrayed as an abusive father and physically abused, and then he admitted in the interview that his father never physically touched him or was in any w hurt iron and he only did it for the
movie and he regretted that he did it because of that it wasn't like kind of like a lying version of his father, it wasn't the truthful version of his father, it's a really interesting one interview, i was looking at some of them and talking about addiction and how there is this big community of actors and celebrities who love to get into addiction and have a big system and support system to help people and shia talked about how his addiction got him to be an abusive person in his relationships and talked about his downfall so it's quite an interesting interview.
John Berenthal. I think he's a really cool guy to do things like that and interview people who you know have fallen from grace in many ways and have demons in their lives and have done bad things. I think it's an interesting perspective to hear from both sides of the story, so and they seem like they are quite close because they worked together on Fury and from what I've read that was apparently one very bonding experience for all these guys it seems like brolin is involved in this network of his pinging people makes sense it would be because it is such a unique situation for celebrities yes because you are not just an aaa , but also a celebrity that you can't even walk out your front door without people wanting to talk.
So imagine that has to be like a completely different animal and that would make sense like there's a community of them helping each other which we talked about last week and he just got cast in Francis Ford Coppola's Megalopolis so he also cast a lot of controversy in that film which I think this vi Maybe that's the leap for him trying to fix his image to get back to Hollywood I mean, Downey has been a terrible person for a long time, a lot of actors and a lot of celebrities, a lot of people down bad paths and they're abusive, and you know I think it's important that people try to change their behaviors I mean you want it's not like giving people second chances so why not see what happens it's difficult you know , it's a controversial subject, yeah we'll see what happens, uh, but we'll go ahead and scream two, the lost boys, and
more horror classics are coming Halloween trick-or-treating is also coming to theaters this October.
That is so cool. We talked about this about a month ago. I wish we would have
more studios or just re-release great classic
movies in theaters annually it's free you don't have to get a roll of film any
more it's all you have to do they have to send a flashcard to the cinema and that is the digital copy go and how they wont be big hits but how you can like spider-man made 7million this week bt made some money jaws made some money absolutely viewers we love watching the same great
movies over and over again , you know what that is, yeah it's great because I like right now there's August, there haven't been that many good
movies in theaters, and like me, we just went to the things we were invited to, because we saw pine yeah and like if cool old
movies were playing i would be there the cinemas all the time good you can do stuff like new beverly but not a lot of people have access to cinemas exactly stuff like that yeah but how just to be able to play old
movies big change i find this a great way to get audiences into theaters how complex could this marketing be just a few instagram posts and word of mouth?
Do you send a copy to thousand amc? can do this for amc oh speaking of
nicole kim and there is the er the sequel to the commercial is on the way they will be filming it soon i think she is writing it too she wrote it yeah well apparently she did an interview and she er she said amc reached out to her and said they wanted to do a sequel uel to the ad and
