NTTD is doing poorly in USA so that may be the reason. Not for the lack of marketing but becasue Bond has never been an American thing at least not in the way it’s international. But MGm may feel they need to amplify the marketing push. Which won’t help.
Lol. It’s not doing poorly in the United States. It just failed to meet expectations. It’s still doing better than Casino Royale and all the Bond movies before the Craig era and even better than all the Mission Impossible movies with their over the top action. So how can you say it’s doing poorly? It’s just because Skyfall ridiculously overperformed at the box office due to all the hype around that film leading to the industry expecting the follow up films to match Skyfall which didn’t happen for both Spectre and No Time To Die.October 19, 2021 at 8:36 pm #1204527545
I saw the Dune trailer and why is it high in the predictions center for things like Production Design? It looked quite UGLY to me. I didn’t like the trailer at all. I happen to love Timothee Chalamet but there wasn’t a single aspect of that trailer that made me want to see the movie. I have at least for now taken it out of several categories I had it in what I call “holding spots” until I get to see more of the films that are likely nominees. Trailers most often give us a ton of information, particularly about the visual look of a movie. I also saw the Licorice Pizza trailer again when I saw No Time To Die today and I still really dislike that trailer. I also still do not understand why Bradley Cooper is so high in the predictions center for it; it is a real head-scratcher. The Eternals trailer looks beyond stupid. I have no desire to see it. These are my opinions and I don’t expect anyone else to see it the same way I do.
In regards to Dune. Maybe you should actually see the movie before forming strong opinions….October 19, 2021 at 7:31 pm #1204527481
The Last Duel should have never gone to theaters during a pandemic. It should have been sold to Netflix a long time ago and it would have killed on Netflix a la The King. I couldn’t be more devasted for such a talented quartet of actors. Sigh.October 19, 2021 at 7:20 pm #1204527465

Pablo Larrain over Denis Villeneuve, Adam McKay, Paul Thomas Anderson and Joel Coen? In what world? Don’t make me laugh please.October 14, 2021 at 1:43 pm #1204519051
Honestly no, because it’s going to be Emma Stone show from beginning to end, but we’ll see if the movie is strong.
Do you think Emma Stone can win a Golden Globe and an Oscar nomination for it?
And do you think this can achieve box office success (or at least gross more than the Favourite?) because Dr Frankenstein – esque movies are well liked by the general audience.October 9, 2021 at 1:58 pm #1204511067
Do we know anything about US release plans for “The Worst Person in the World?” As the current frontrunner (or at the very least, a top contender), it’s surprising to me that Neon hasn’t dated the film yet and capitalized off of a strong festival run.
If it is to be said, so it be…so it is.October 9, 2021 at 5:54 am #1204510444
1. Cillian Murphy finally getting his deserved big leading role in an event film.
2. “Trinity” (the code name of the test) would have been a much cooler title.
3. I highly doubt that people of the caliber of Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale will ever accept or consider to play second fiddle to Murphy.
There were at least two 2 theatrical movies, one just after the war in 1947 and the other in like 1987, and another television film i think sometime in the 90s. And in each and every one of those projects, the actor who played Lowes was given top billing including the 1987 film where Paul Newman played Lowes and was given top billing and I can’t remember the name of the actor who played Oppenheimer because I had never heard of him. The role of Lowes is basically a co lead role akin to Damon and Bale in Ford v Ferrari. So they should and need to cast a big name actor in the role of Lowes.October 9, 2021 at 5:49 am #1204510433
Bale’s pretty comfortable in supporting roles (it’s where he won his Oscar after all), and DiCaprio is playing second fiddle to both Jesse Plemons AND Robert De Niro pretty soon, so I wouldn’t put it past either of them. That said, neither of them would be my pick for Leslie Groves.
Who would be your pick for Leslie Groves? Please do tell. I can’t think of anyone for some reason.October 8, 2021 at 1:40 pm #1204509591
1. A better title for the film would have been American Prometheus after the book it is based on. That’s more marketable than Oppenheimer because 90% of the world don’t know who he is and might think it is a foreign language film. Lol
2. I adore Cillian Murphy and I think he is a great actor and I’m happy he is finally getting a lead role in a major film BUT a Ford v Ferrari looking Christian Bale would have been better even though more expensive casting because Bale is more marketable and carries more prestige with awards voters.
3. The success of this film will greatly depend on who is cast General Leslie Groves because that is essentially a co lead role that if cast with a big enough actor can be given top billing. Again my choice would be Christian Bale and it might just be me being a huge Bale fan but as I said he is very marketable and he can gain the weight needed to look like Grooves but someone like Leonardo DiCarprio can also do fine.
4. I don’t know if you can tell but I’m very excited about this film. Lol
