Tales From The Box Office: How Blade Runner 2049 Became A Cautionary Tale

(Welcome to Tales from the Box Office, our column that examines box office miracles, disasters, and everything in between, as well as what we can learn from them.)It is no secret that Hollywood loves a franchise play in the modern age. The success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, "Star Wars," "Harry Potter," and "Transformers," among many others, has forced studios to try and do whatever they can to get a leg-up on the competition with recognizable IP that can generate several sequels, if not a...

The Texas State Capitol in Austin. Tamir Kalifa/Getty Images Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott appointed Fort Worth attorney John Scott to oversee the state's elections. Scott briefly sought to help Trump overturn the 2020 presidential results in Pennsylvania. The attorney withdrew from the case a day before its scheduled hearing last November. Texas Gov.

Le Gasp! Biden Finally Embraces Changing The Filibuster

A lot of things happened. Here are some of the things. Here We Go! After months of largely avoiding calls to reform the filibuster while GOP senators were gleefully weaponizing it to obstruct his agenda, the President said during a TV town hall event last night that he’s had enough: It’s time to “fundamentally alter the filibuster.” Biden suggested he might be open to eliminating the filibuster entirely. Meanwhile, he proposed bringing back the “talking filibuster,” where senator...

How Blade Runner's Production Was Almost Shut Down During Its Final Days

Rightly regarded now as a classic, the original "Blade Runner" faced many significant hurdles on its road to movie greatness. Ridley Scott's 1982 film utilized some of the neon from the set of Francis Ford Coppola's Las Vegas-set musical romance, "One from the Heart," the same box-office bomb that — together with Michael Cimino's "Heaven's Gate" — traditionally demarcates the end of the New Hollywood era. "Blade Runner" came at the tail end of that fertile period when filmmakers like Scott, Copp...

In need of a shape-up

In today’s Wall Street Journal I review the Broadway transfers of Thoughts of a Colored Man and Dana H. Here’s an excerpt. *  *  * Barbershops of the old-fashioned three-chair type are integral parts of Black urban neighborhoods, quasi-community centers where the locals not only get their hair cut but hang out, see friends, swap gossip, and shoot the breeze. I learned this from “Barbershop,” Tim Story’s charming 2002 screen comedy about a 40-year-old shop on the South Side of Chicago, and “Thoug...

Michael Scott's 12 Most Redeeming Moments On The Office

In an exceptional article for Stereogum about Chris Brown and other "villainous" pop stars, Michael Nelson turned his eyes — briefly — to television. "We're long past good guys in white cowboy hats and bad guys in black cowboy hats," Nelson writes. "Now we root for charismatic protagonists from Tony Soprano to Don Draper even as they exploit, abuse and even murder those close to them." Michael Scott, regional manager of Dunder Mifflin, is not Tony Soprano or Don Draper's contemporary. Like them,...

Gladiator Ending Explained: Roman Retribution And Elysian Reunions

Ridley Scott's grandiose Roman revenge film "Gladiator" has remained a staple of historical epics since it was released back in 2000. With its sweeping vistas of Rome, iconic (and forever quotable) scenes, and brutal action, the film is a beautiful and visceral immersion into one of the largest empires of the ancient world. Maximus Decimus Meridius (Russell Crowe), a Roman general turned gladiator after his loyalty to the Emperor leads to his family's murder, is portrayed as an unstoppable force...

The 14 Greatest War Movies Of The 21st Century

The war movie has been around as long as movies themselves, and they make for an important historical document. Comparing WWII movies made during or just after that war with ones made 50 to 70 years later, with the benefit of hindsight, is a fascinating exercise. While the Second World War does dominate the war movies that are made to this day, lesser-known conflicts around the world and throughout history also make for compelling subjects. Hardly any of the war movies mentioned here feature big...

Zillow’s Pivot Not a Sign of an iBuying Collapse

The innovative practice of iBuying, at least on the surface, seems like a tremendous shift—a new, growing force with the potential to rock the real estate industry in myriad ways. Pundits, observers and brokers have regularly shared predictions as to how much iBuyers could change the industry or disrupt markets, and analysts have scrambled to interpret data as they seek to predict the future of the industry. Perhaps, though—at least in the short-term—iBuying is not yet ready to upend traditio...

John Wick Prequel Series Adds Mel Gibson, Just In Case You Thought Hollywood Had A Memory

If you need proof that God is dead, look no further. Deadline reports that actual garbage human Mel Gibson has been cast as the lead in the "John Wick" prequel series, "The Continental." After the fourth John Wick movie kept on adding beloved actor after beloved actor, the pendulum was bound to swing the other way at some point. But good grief.

A Miniseries Is The Best Way To Finish Ridley Scott's Alien Prequel Story

It’s looking less and less likely that Ridley Scott will helm another Alien prequel, but fortunately, Alien: Covenant could still receive a follow-up in the form of a limited series. Despite starting strong, the Alien franchise has struggled to find its feet with critics over the last few decades. The original Alien, a brutal and brilliant “haunted house in space” sci-fi horror, and its more action-forward sequel Aliens are beloved by viewers and critics alike, often still held up as classics o...

Halloween Kills Director David Gordon Green Made A Rock 'N' Roll Sequel [Interview]

"Halloween Kills" is a bloodbath. Director David Gordon Green's sequel turns up the gore, the comedy, and the pace in the sequel to the hit reboot, which brought Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) back. Like most sequels, "Halloween Kills" goes bigger, especially in the kills department. Not only are they nasty and impressive pieces of craftsmanship from the VFX department, but they are surprising — sometimes even shocking. Green wanted the sequel to go a little nuts, especially after earning the ...
