The streaming wars continue their never ceasing battle, goodness fucking gracious. Warner Brothers is dropping an atomic tea bag on the rest of the movie industry next year. The company is releasing 10 movies exclusively on HBO MAX. Fucking exclusives! Personally? I think it’s pretty fucking gross, but this at least a portion of the inevitable model, no? Either dropping shit exclusively on the streaming services, or adopting a Disney+ hybrid model.
Warner Bros. strikes first deal to bring films to theaters only in 2022. Includes new 45-day window!
It looks like the fucks at Warner Brothers are making good on their claim that 2021 is an aberration in their release policy. Unlike this year, the company has struck a deal with Regal Cinemas to be dropping new titles in theaters only in 2022. However, they’ve also negotiated a 45-day window, which is noticeably shorter. Me? I’m fucking stoked, man. Preserve the theatrical experience, and if the theaters aren’t ready by 2022, we got bigger fucking problems.
Warner Bros., is, would you fucking believe it, done with Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. No, seriously this time. Until the next time, obviously.
Man, I sort of feel bad for Warner Bros. at this point. Like, I know you gotta do your thing, mind your grind, and keep attempting to make good movies. But, dropping the Shazam logo a week after the Infinity War trailer feels like a sad measure. How about ya’ll just go quiet for a bit until Infinity War passes, and then try and capture some of the zeitgeist.
Maybe it’s the longer days contributing some solar-powered optimism, maybe it’s my latent love for portions of Michael Bay’s oeuvre. But, I’m down for the dude directing a Lobo movie. Both of them are a monument to excessivism and mindless violence. Both of them are meat-head dumb asses. And together? They may damn well be unstoppable.
There’s yet another head of DC Films, my dudes. It’s the same guy who oversaw the production of hits It and The Conjuring, whatever the fuck that means to you. But. Hey dude, welcome aboard. You really can’t do any worse than your predecessors.
Ah! As the world turns for The Batman, and everything surrounding it. The latest report? Warner Bros. is “very happy” with the script. But, I mean, what are they going to say-leak? They fucking hate it, and they’re despairing?
Get it? I’m just calling everything about The Flash movie Dope, because it’s got the same director and actress. So shitty puns, man. Shitty puns straight everywhere. Seriously though. Cyborg is in the movie. Cool? Not cool? I don’t know, but I remain optimistic about the film.
Apparently it’s news that The Rock’s Shazam! movie is going to be set in the DC Film Universe. I mean, was there speculation that it wasn’t going to be? I don’t know. It’s Friday afternoon, slow news day, here have this morsel of #nonnews, folks.
Man of Steel is getting a sequel. At this point, why the fuck not? It’s the least worst out of the three shitty, shitty entries into the DC Extended Universe. I mean, it’s still shitty. But least. And Geoff Johns is now DC Entertainment President and has spoken about the Man of Steel needing to be a colorful, inspiring figure. So let’s green light the movie! Worst Case Ontario? It sucks like the rest of them
