This week on the podcast, Zach and Chris talk about High Frame Rate and Gemini Man, Aladdin 2019, Jungle Cruise, Robert Forster, Bone coming to Netflix, Venom 2 turning into Maximum Carnage and more.
The Mortal Kombat reboot adds a bunch of new cast members, The Irishman and Castle Rock Season 2 get release dates, the 16-bit Aladdin and Lion King games are coming back in a new collection, Tommy Doyle is returning for Halloween Kills and more in this week’s News Shotgun.
The Lion King remained on top of the box office for its second weekend out but had the biggest drop from the opening weekend for the recent Disney remakes while Tarantino had his biggest opening ever with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Toy Story 4 opened with the highest opening ever for the series but did not meet Disney’s absurdly inflated expectations while the new Child’s Play also did not meet its modest expectations and Luc Besson’s latest didn’t even open in the top 10.
Men in Black: International was at the top of the box office but it was another weekend of new entries in established franchise vastly underperforming compared to their predecessors while Dark Phoenix continues to fall off a cliff and dropped almost 75% from last weekend.
