…and to think,
i just got an “amc rewards card” too.
so it seems like no one went to the movies this summer.
a ton of movies tanked,
and this labor day weekend,
apparently was the lowest it has seen in years.
according to ew…
This year’s summer moviegoing season is ending not with a bang, but a whimper.
North American box office revenue for the four-day Labor Day weekend — which didn’t feature a new wide release for the first time in a quarter-century — is projected to total about $95.5 million, marking the lowest such frame in nearly two decades. (The last time the four-day Labor Day total failed to crack $100 million was back in 1998, according to ComScore.)
It would seem to be a fitting end for a sluggish summer that’s on track to finish below $4 billion (somewhere around $3.8 billion) for the first time since 2006. Although the season featured some notable hits, including Wonder Woman, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Dunkirk, it was dragged down by a string of misfires, such as King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Baywatch, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, and The Dark Tower, to name a few.
let’s be honest,
there was a lot of wack shit that came out this summer.
the only movie i wanted to see was “girl’s trip”.
it definitely didn’t disappoint.
the trailers before “girl’s trip” looked horrendous too.
i remember when going to the movies was an event.
you can hop online and watch whatever you want from home.
“free stream and chill”?
the movie studios are catching on tho.
they may launch a service called “pvod” via hollywood reporter:
Studios may launch PVOD — where consumers get a movie on their TV screens for about $30 shortly after its release into theaters — as early as this year, say some observers. MoffettNathanson Research analyst Robert Fishman estimates that PVOD could cost the movie exhibition industry $380 million annually.
a friend of mine was at lady gaga’s concert recently…
via live stream on facebook on her friend’s phone.
she said it was a “good copy” and enjoyed what she saw.
we don’t have to leave our dens for damn near anything.
and even sex is at a click of a button.
there are delivery companies born to cater to our laziness.
has this started to end getting up and going outside?
are we just smarter with how we spend our money now?
we HAD to leave to watch a terrible movie.
we can watch that terrible movie from bed.
so i had to wonder…
