Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Drops First Trailer

Well, it has finally happened.   After a year of only hearing about news and rumors surrounding the 9th Quentin Tarantino film we are finally getting our first look at it.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt together for the first time in the backdrop of a 1960s Hollywood.  The acting duo play Rick Dalton and Cliff Booth, a washed-up actor and his long-time stunt double.

Check out the trailer below!

Tarantino wrote, directed, and produced Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and was inspired to create this film due to his upbringing in 1960s Tinseltown amidst LA’s hippie-crazed counterculture.  The two characters Rick Dalton and Cliff Booth live next door to Sharon Tate, played by Margot Robbie, in 1969 – durring the rise of the Charles Manson cult.

The film also stars Luke Perry, Damian Lewis, Dakota Fanning, and Bruce Dern who is playing the rancher who owned the infamous ranch where Manson and his followers lived.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is set to release on July 26th.

‘Bumblebee’ sequel will have “A Little More Bayhem”

Last December’s Bumblebee broke the trend that had been set by Transformers films since 2007 – it was not directed by Michael Bay.

The film was directed by Kubo and the Two Strings director Travis Knight, who was praised for bringing more heart and depth to the Transformers characters than had been seen in the previous five straight films.  Bay’s Transformers movies were known for their sexy over-the-top action and “comedy” with very little character development of the titular characters.  And while the previous films did make a lot of money at the box office, there was a huge decline between the 4th and 5th instalments showing that audiences were getting tired fo the shtick.

Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura spoke at SXSW with Collider‘s Haleigh Foutch saying:

“Several lessons have come out of this. One is that we have the freedom to tell almost any story.  The other is that, how strongly the audience identified with the strength of character and emotion. I know the next Transformer, our attempt anyway, is to sort of do a fusion of Bumblebee and the Bay movies…a little more Bayhem. And a little bit more of the character falling in love within the emotional dynamic of the movie. One of the things I want to do-and I hope we pull it off-is, we did it with Bumblebee because he’s so cute and he’s so accessible, but he can’t talk.  I think the more human we can make these characters, the more people are going to like them.”

March 15-17 Box Office Report

Another weekend in the word of movies completed, and surprisingly most of the films made more money than anybody predicted.

As predicted in last weeks podcast episode, Captain Marvel stayed in the number one spot  However, my prediction was not completely accurate – the Marvel film dropped only 55.7%, as apposed to the 70% predicted.

The film garnered a lot praise from audiences after its first weekend and it is no surprise that it had lots of repeat viewing as well as viewership from those that may not normally go to a superhero film.  After this past weekend Captain Marvel is showing that it may just cross the coveted one billion dollar mark.

New release films Wonder Park, and Five Feet Apart, despite coming behind Captain Marvel managed to bring in more box office dollars than had been predicted. Both managed to cross over the $10 Million mark, something that many did not think was possible going against a Marvel superhero film in its second week.

Check out the full box office breakdown below!

No 1. Captain Marvel – $67,988,130. Bringing its total gross in its 2nd weekend to $264,884,063.

No 2. Wonder Park – $15,853,646 in its first weekend of release.

No 3. Five Feet Apart – $13,190,286 in its first weekend of release.

No 4. How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World$9,277,310.  Bringing its total gross in its 4th weekend to $135,576,405.

No 5. Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral$7,836,167.  Bringing its total gross in its 3rd weekend to $58,819,182.

Warner Bros. CEO Steps Down Amid Sex Scandal Allegations

Kevin Tsujihara, Warner Bros. CEO for six years, has stepped down as chairman.  His move to step down as leader for the movie studio comes after a story broke in The Hollywood Reporter last week alleging that Tsujihara was involved with actress Charlotte Kirk in exchange for movie auditions and roles.

Tsujihara did publicly apologize for his conduct, however it is unbecoming of a CEO to operate in this way.  If he had not stepped down he would have been forced out by higher powers.

WarnerMedia CEO John Stankey said on Monday regarding Tsujihara’s departure:

“It is in the best interest of WarnerMedia, Warner Bros., our employees and our partners for Kevin to step down as Chairman and CEO of Warner Bros. Kevin has contributed greatly to the studio’s success over the past 25 years and for that we thank him. Kevin acknowledges that his mistakes are inconsistent with the Company’s leadership expectations and could impact the Company’s ability to execute going forward.”
