Ok, that makes zero sense. However, Warner Brothers bypassing theaters to bring Scoob Direct to Digital on May 15th actually makes perfect sense. All the rescheduling of 2020’s big films means the smaller, more iffy titles like Scoob need a home so why not digital. Unlike Universal’s unilateral move, WB did consult with theaters first.

MTV Movie and TV Award Announces Performances

Man, I wish I still lived in LA and not this backwaters hole in Florida. It’s a nice backwaters hole, but nothing exciting happens in Jacksonville. Can I put a sad face emoji in a news article? Is that professional?

MTV Movie and TV Awards has announced their performance line up and I’ll admit I don’t know who most of these people are, but I love Macklemore and would consider flying out to LA just to get a chance to meet and talk to him. Not to mention the Red Carpet will probably be insane.  Even though I can’t be there, unless MTV pays for me (like that will happen), I plan on having someone out there repping the EM machine. Hosted by “Shazam!” star Zachary Levi, the MTV Movie & TV Awards air Monday, June 17 at 9:00 PM ET/PT.  Full press release below.

Skyscraper is the story of Will Sawyer (Dwayne Johnson). Ten years ago, while serving as an FBI hostage crisis extractor, Sawyer suffered through a terrible incident which cost him one of his legs. Today he has started a whole new life as a loving husband, father to twins, and the head of his own private security analysis company. The latter achievement has landed Sawyer an incredibly high-end opportunity to serve as the head of security for The Pearl, the world’s most luxurious (and tallest) skyscraper ever constructed. The bottom portion of the structure is home to commerce, the middle boasts a vertical park, and the top floors contain residences which are yet to open, but home to Sawyer’s family.

Murder on the Orient Express is an Enjoyable Ride Lacking a Destination

Hercule Poirot (Kenneth Branagh) takes a moment away from the scene of the crime to collect his thoughts in MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS

Murder on the Orient Express, a remade version of the 1974 Sidney Lumet film which is also an adaptation of Agatha Christie’s revered novel, is about a crime most foul. Aboard a lavish passenger train barreling through the snowy mountains in the 1930s several parties find themselves in close quarters. One patron is a man named Ratchett (Johnny Depp) whose slimy contemptuous demeanor oozes vile. Ratchett has identified a celebrity of sorts aboard—Hercule Poirot (Kenneth Branagh), a world-famous detective, and approaches the sleuth with a work proposal. Claiming to be a quasi-legal carpet salesman, Ratchett is convinced his life is in danger and seeks Poirot’s protection. Poirot’s honor makes refusal easy. The murder ensues.

Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgard) returns to the jungle to save the woman he loves in The Legend of Tarzan.


The Legend of Tarzan is a sequel.

Raised by apes to speak the language of the wild, Tarzan grew into a man, met Jane, fell in love, and became both myth and legend in the process.

Batman: The Killing Joke Stays Alive Thanks to Mark Hamill

Batman (Kevin Conroy) attempts to further understand, if not reason with, The Joker (Mark Hamill) who has unleashed a new deadly scheme focused on the Gordon family in Batman: The Killing Joke.

Batman: The Killing Joke is the adaptation of the wildly popular and critically successful graphic novel written by Alan Moore in 1988. The central story revolves The Joker, following his most recent escape from Arkham Asylum, seeking to prove that all people can devolve to the level to insanity and depravity where he currently, knowingly, resides.

CinemaCon 2015 Preview – 10 Things to Look Forward To!


This weekend your fearless leader is making the annual sojourn to Vegas. I’m flying a red eye on Frontier Air – it’s going to be fine, it’s going to be fine. If I say it enough I’ll believe it. It’s going to be fine…. Who am I kidding; Frontier Air sucks monkey balls. Only the annual National Association of Theater Owners (NATO) convention CinemaCon can get me on Frontier again. CinemaCon is where Movie Theater Owners get together and celebrate their love of movies (as well as whine) directly to the studios. Considering everyone talks about the death of the industry, there are more and more fancier theaters coming to my area – not soon enough and most are too far away. There will be studio presentations, partaaaays, and some cool interviews.
