Barely anything is out this week on DVD and Blu-Ray with the exception of the excellent 1917, the first season of the Bourne spin-off Treadstone, a collector’s edition of 80s horror movie April Fool’s Day and one or two other things.
Now one of the Oscar frontrunners, 1917 took the top spot at the box office in its first weekend of wide release while Like a Boss and especially Underwater did not fare too well in their opening weekends.
Rise of Skywalker remained on top of the box office for the first weekend of both 2020 and a new decade while Frozen II became the highest-grossing animated film worldwide.
2020 (and a new decade) kicks off with an apparently terrible new version of The Grudge as the only new movie in theaters this weekend.
2020 begins with a slew of horror, including a new spin on The Grudge, the return of Bad Boys with Bad Boys for Life, World War I epic 1917, the latest from Guy Ritchie with The Gentlemen and more in January.
Sam Raimi is helping to bring back The Grudge franchise, with a reboot arriving the first weekend of 2020 starring John Cho and Andrea Riseborough as the main characters dealing with a vengeful spirit that is haunting a suburban home.
