  1. Christian says:

    Kinda “meh” number on VOYAGE OF TIME, although I don’t know what expectations are for real IMAX theaters (as opposed to multiplex lie-MAX theaters). How many of those are there? What’s the capacity at each and the number of daily showtimes?

  2. Christian says:

    Well, I guess the relevant number re: the first question above is “9,” eh?

  3. Movieman says:

    The presidential campaign is so much juicier (and infinitely more interesting) than the blah weekend box office.
    Hard to focus on much else right now.

  4. EtGuild2 says:

    I’d say so, given that I just watched a panel show that referred to “big, phony tits” and whether it’s anatomically feasible to grab a woman by the you-know-what.

  5. Pete B. says:

    Are the numbers correct? How is Miss Peregrine down 57%, when that’s the same numer (8.9) as last Friday?

  6. Sideshow Bill says:

    Peregrine should be 3.9, I think.

    Not only is the election more entertaining than box office releases, MLB Playoffs are fantastic. Lifelong Cubs fan here so my time is booked. No Girl On A Train for me.

  7. leahnz says:

    entertaining isn’t the word i’d use to describe it

  8. Sideshow Bill says:

    Traumatic, maybe, leahnz? That might be more accurate

  9. leahnz says:

    ha yeah why not. stay frosty
    (today’s debate: hermione v michael myers, like if he’d never escaped/gone back to haddonfield and somehow been released from the psyche ward many years on supposedly “rehabilitated”)

    Hermione? Really?

“What Quibi trying to do is get to the next generation of film narrative. The first generation was movies, and they were principally two-hour stories that were designed to be watched in a single sitting in a movie theater [ED: After formats like the nickelodeon]. The next generation of film narrative was television, principally designed to be watched in one-hour chapters in front of a television set. I believe the third generation of film narrative will be a merging of those two ideas, which is to tell two-hour stories in chapters that are seven to ten minutes in length. We are actually doing long-form in bite-size.”
~ Jeffrey Katzenberg

“The important thing is: what makes the audience interested in it? Of course, I don’t take on any roles that don’t interest me, or where I can’t find anything for myself in it. But I don’t like talking about that. If you go into a restaurant and you have been served an exquisite meal, you don’t need to know how the chef felt, or when he chose the vegetables on the market. I always feel a little like I would pull the rug out from under myself if I were to I speak about the background of my work. My explanations would come into conflict with the reason a movie is made in the first place — for the experience of the audience — and that, I would not want.
