News from around the web

This weekends box office is going to be an interesting watch. The global coronavirus will do a couple of things to cinemas attendance, it is keeping people at home as they self isolate and in many countries including the UK and US cinema owners have shut their doors to help prevent the spread of the virus.

At the UK box office this weekend, Friday, 20th March 2020, there are 2 new releases, originally there were more, including A Quiet Place Part II which would have made the box office look different, but many film have been put back to later this year or next year.

Can either of these two movie knock Onward from the top of the UK box office chart?

The Jesus Rolls

First up at cinemas this week is The Jesus Rolls, directed by John Turturro who also directed Mac in 1992.

It stars John Turturro who last starred in Gloria Bell (2019).

The film also stars Bobby Cannavale who last appeared in Motherless Brooklyn (2019).

Radioactive

Radioactive

Next on this weeks new release schedule is Radioactive.

This new movie stars Anya Taylor-Joy who's last film was Emma (2020)

It also stars Rosamund Pike who appeared in The Informer (2019).

The film is brought to us by 2 time director Marjane Satrapi.

Check back on Monday to see if these new releases enter the UK Weekend Box Office Chart.

Next Week

There is 1 new release in the shape of Vivarium which is in cinemas on Friday, 27th March.

Following a trend set by Universal with The Invisible Man and Warner Bros. with Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn), Bloodshot starring Vin Diesel will get a release on digital March 24th, next Tuesday!

The Invisible man

Coupled with bad reviews and not so good word of mouth the movie which was released at the box office last Friday (March 13th) the film will have one of the shortest windows of a major blockbuster.

The self isolation and lockdowns of the world during this unprecedented time of the coronavirus pandemic is setting new standards of box office to home entertainment window.

For big blockbusters the window has always been 3 - 6 months, unlike the 80's and 90's when the window from box office to VHS could be a year or more.

We live in a time now when people have much better home entertainment systems, as opposed to a 14 inch low quality TV with a mono speaker attached and the best way to see a film was at the cinema.

It will be interesting to see if this 'experiment' sets a standard or its just a temporary measure while the world deals with the viral outbreak.

Cinema chains across the globe are taking drastic safety measures to keep the spread of coronavirus by closing up, in many countries until early April.

As seen by this weeks box office figures this weekends box office taking were down by up to 70% in some countries and the general public remain at home in self quarantine.

Now, by the request of many global governments, cinemas are closing their doors all together in order to keep the public safe and limit the spread of the virus.

If COVID-19 is controlled then we may see a reopening in the early days of April, but this will have a large impact on local and global box office.

Europe and America have a thriving cinema going population, and China which is starting to show signs of controlling the spread has one of the largest in the world.

More importantly many small independent cinemas might struggle to survive in the suggested 3 weeks of shutdown, and even with the large chains it might have a detrimental effect.

Time will tell but this could have lasting effect on movies at cinema while the home streaming benefit.

Disney continue their series of live action remakes for their animated features with Mulan which has been given a 12A rating.

Mulan is given a 12A age rating

The story of Mulan is set in China where a young woman disguises herself as a man so she can fight for her country rather than her ageing father.

The film, a remake of the 1998 animation, as been given a 12A rating by the BBFC.

Here is a break down of the decision.

  • Age rating: 12A
  • Reason: moderate violence
  • Release date: 27th March 2020
  • This work was passed uncut.

Ryan Reynolds stars in the first trailer for Free Guy, and interesting movie which has an ordinary guy put on a pair of glasses and find himself in an actual reality (AR) world where he in the hero.

With a fairly confusing premise the film gives a lot of the story away and shows off the actual reality side of the movie, with Reynolds in the centre of all the action.

The movie os directed by Shawn Levy who is no stranger to challenging comedies and we can expect the comedy and the action to blend well, and Reynolds is no stranger to comedy action hero films.

The movie has a release date in the UK of 1st July 2020.
