Teaser Trailer for Funky Sundance Midnight Thriller ‘Summer of ’84’

Summer of '84 Trailer

“There’s a serial killer on the loose… What else could possibly be this exciting?!” Gunpowder & Sky has put out the first teaser trailer for filmmaking collective RKSS’ new film Summer of ’84, which is premiering at the Sundance Film Festival this month. This film comes with quite a similar pitch to many other projects these days: it “delivers the camaraderie, adventure, joy and nostalgia of The Goonies and Stand By Me while four boys chase to uncover a mystery (ala ‘Stranger Things’).” The main cast is lead by a group of four young kids, and the film stars Graham Verchere, Judah Lewis, Caleb Emery, Cory Gruter-Andrew, Tiera Skovbye, Rich Sommer, Jason Gray-Stanford, and Shauna Johannesen. This really does look like Stand By Me meets “Stranger Things”, but hopefully it has something to unique offer on its own. Have fun. ›››

Winter is the New Summer Movie Season

Forget Summer. Seriously… it’s easy to bash the “Hollywood industry” during the long drawn out months of the summer blockbuster season – The blogosphere is heavy with article after article about the so-called “death of Hollywood” (because of a few percent decline in B.O.) – The internet is clogged with a new industry of fandomism […]

More Monster Humor: ‘Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation’ Trailer

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation

“If anyone needs a vacation… it’s Drac!” Sony has unveiled the first trailer for the animated sequel Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, again directed by the animation mastermind Genndy Tartakovsky. By now you should know what to expect with this series, considering we’re about to see the third one next year. Hotel Transylvania 3 brings back the “Drac Pack” and his family/squad, this time going on a summer vacation cruise. Apparently he falls for the “intriguing-yet-dangerous” captain of the ship, causing problems of course. This once again featuring the voices of Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez, Andy Samberg, and Genndy Tartakovsky. I’m a fan of Tartakovsky so I want to be into these, but I don’t think I’ve watched any, and I don’t know if I want to watch them. Something just tells me no, not for me. But – enjoy it anyway. ›››

Summer 2017 Closes Out with the Worst Labor Day Weekend in 17 Years

Thanks to some stronger-than-expected performances, this weekend ended up better than Mojo’s forecast and yet, this is still the worst three-day Labor Day weekend in twelve years. The top twelve grossed a combined $ 51.5 million and you have to go back to 2000, when the top twelve grossed a combined $ 47 million, to find a worse performance. That said, both The Hitman’s Bodyguard and Annabelle: Creation delivered strong performances to top the weekend. In fact, only four films in the top…

Sagging Summer 2017 Comes to an End with a Whimper

It has been 25 years since Labor Day weekend has not seen a new film debut in over 1,000 theaters. The largest “new” release over Labor Day weekend 2017 is Sony’s re-release of Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind, which will be ushered into 901 locations followed by The Weinstein Co.’s Tulip Fever, which recently moved up to take advantage of the absence of a wide release, but will still only launch in 765 locations. Otherwise, Lionsgate is releasing Pantelion’s…

Summer Staggers to a Close as Mayweather and McGregor Fight Takes Center Stage

We are looking at what may be the worst August weekend in over 20 years with a top twelve that could struggle to reach a combined $ 50 million, something that hasn’t happened in August since 1993. In fact, while this will undoubtedly be the worst weekend of 2017 thus far, it could be the worst weekend for the top twelve since early September 2014 should Mojo’s current forecast hold. For more context, August is currently pacing 36% behind last year and expected to be the first August since 20…

It’s a great weekend for Warner Bros. which saw Annabelle: Creation, the latest installment in the Conjuring franchise, top the box office with $ 35 million while Dunkirk topped $ 150 million domestically.
