‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Blasts Up $40 Million+ During Opening Weekend

Published

Afterlife

Ghostbusters: Afterlife is bringing  ghosts back to ghost traps and dollars back to the box office. So far, we have seen a huge amount of cash brought into the box office by horror movies like Candyman, Spiral, Etc… This horror/comedy is bringing in the big bucks too. So far, GB:A has brought in $40 million+ so far – and it’s only Saturday.

Expectations were set at $30 – $35 million. So, bustin’ ghosts managed to blow right past that in a big way. We are pretty much guaranteed a follow up for Ghostbusters at this point.

Director, Jason Reitman intentionally set this one up to be a picture about Egon’s family. The entire film is a dedication to Harold Ramis without a doubt. From here on out, the franchise will be able to take things back to the firehouse in New York and to take the original cast back to busting ghosts. Reitman can now easily have a kids branch of Ghostbusters and an adult side to bustin them ghosts. I would love to see Paul Rudd head to New York with the classic lineup. A slow passing of the torch to a new team of characters would be awesome.

The synopsis for Ghostbusters: Afterlife goes like this:

When a single mother and her two children move to a new town, they soon discover they have a connection to the original Ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind.

The weekend isn’t even over and the film is at $40 million+!  We are excited to see where these numbers are come Monday morning.

‘Cloverfield’ Film Finds a Director To Helm Next Entry

Published

Cloverfield

We have seen an incredible three Cloverfield-based films so far. The latest being Cloverfield Paradox on Netflix. The latest in the series also managed to lose steam for the secretive franchise. It went too far into the explanation of secrets that we had seen in the first two films. Once the wizard is discovered behind the curtain the game loses its momentum and fun. The upcoming Cloverfield film has found its director from Under the Shadow’s Babak Anvari.

The director’s Under the Shadow was a great piece of horror. It was entirely effective in its scares and story.

There is no word on where the fourth Cloverfield film will take audiences. But, that is for the best. These films have always been shrouded in secrecy and that is what has made them fun. Well… the first two films anyway.

The synopsis for Cloverfield went like this:

As a group of New Yorkers (Michael Stahl-David, Mike Vogel, Odette Yustman) enjoy a going-away party, little do they know that they will soon face the most terrifying night of their lives. A creature the size of a skyscraper descends upon the city, leaving death and destruction in its wake. Using a handheld video camera, the friends record their struggle to survive as New York crumbles around them.

We are happy to see that Anvari is going to helm this entry. We can’t wait to see what he brings to the franchise and to see what direction this entry takes.

Netflix’s ‘Dahmer’ Already in The Number One Spot

Published

Dahmer

Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story only just arrived on Netflix earlier this week and it has already managed to move to Netflix’s number one spot. The 10-episode nightmare goes into nightmarish details of the Milwaukee Monster. In fact, the details that the series dives into have caused a backlash among some viewers. There has been an outcry by some viewers that beg audiences not to romanticize the Dahmer just because Evan Peters is playing him.

The new series has a score of 91 on Rotten Tomatoes and that score doesn’t appear to be going down anytime soon.

The synopsis for Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story goes like this:

Between 1978 and 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer gruesomely took the lives of seventeen innocent victims. DAHMER – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is a series that exposes these unconscionable crimes, centered around the underserved victims and their communities impacted by the systemic racism and institutional failures of the police that allowed one of America’s most notorious serial killers to continue his murderous spree in plain sight for over a decade.

Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is now streaming on Netflix.
