‘Bloodshot’ Finishes Third at Weakened Box Office

Bloodshot finished in third place at the weekend box office amid ever-growing fears of the global spread of the Corona Virus, leading to the lowest weekend totals since 1995 (when John Carpenter’s Vampires led the pack).

The adaptation of the Valiant comic book character actually met expectations (albeit low expectations) with an estimated $9.3 million this weekend.  Bloodshot’s 31% score on Rotten Tomatoes and B rating on Cinemascore wasn’t enough to tempt more people to venture outside of their homes, but this week’s metrics had little to do with any tickets being sold. read more

‘New Mutants’ and ‘Antlers’ Moved Off Release Schedule

Similar to Paramount’s decision to shift A Quiet Place II to a later date in 2020, Disney followed suit by moving New Mutants, Antlers, and Mulan off of their scheduled release dates.  No new dates have been announced as of yet, but according to Deadline, Disney is “…looking at potential 2020 dates in regards to where the titles would be scheduled next.”

Although these concerns are explicitly related to Coronavirus fears, this will be the fourth time that New Mutants will shift to a new date.  Previously, the film was scheduled to screen on January 11, 2018, March 27, 2018, May 7, 2019, and March 12, 2020.   Antlers was originally scheduled to be released on April 17. read more
