  1. Pushed back to February 2020 in the UK, would imagine US will follow suit https://www.dcm.co.uk/news/latest-film-release-changes-31-july-2019
  2. Now titled Dolittle. Sudden pivot to heartstrings/dead wife...darker than it probably was pre-reshoots?
  3. Well at least one other cinema got it. Looks like it's happening folks. https://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?p=16687488#post16687488
  4. Glaced at my Twitter timeline - mostly positive reviews? Told you to stop being so doom and gloomy....this is gonna make all the moolah. It's such a crowdpleaser.
  5. Absolutely adored this, in all its ridiculousness. Playing like a Brosnan-era Bond film (with its own version of SPECTRE) on crack - or more accurately, nitro - this thankfully does away with connections to the mainline F&F franchise and sets up its own thing - all for the better. The real star of the show is the script (or more specifically, dialogue) and the cast that exchange all these barbs: The Rock and Statham are as hilarious together as you've hoped, Kirby is *fantastic*, Elba and everyone else is hamming it up and clearly having fun in the best way - and a lot of it appears to be thanks to Drew Pearce specifically (and Leitch's Deadpool pedigree, though when I saw Pearce's name in the credits I went 'aaaaahhh') - remember when this was supposed to be a Shane Black joint? Can really tell... There's a sense of self-awareness that gels a whole lot better than the latter F&F films, and the drama/backstories...actually...work, like, earnestly? Unlike the soapiness of Diesel's stuff. But what Leitch brings here is a suitably ridiculous style that attempts to bring the bling and the action of his previous works all together (and you can extend that to this film as a whole being a very admirable attempt to do that) - very much succeeds at the former, with the latter I did miss the uncut and clean fight choreography which defined John Wick and Atomic Blonde, tough to adapt to PG13 evidently. Give me 8 of these movies in a row please and thanks Universal. I think they honestly have something interesting here in the spy franchise world - a 90s styled, star-studded and gloriously OTT counterpoint to the seriousness of Bond, crazy real stunts of Mission: Impossible, and the comic-bookyness of Kingsman that seems to, on reflection, properly fulfil the direction that the main Fast films have been going in. In other words, get these two to space and not Diesel.
  6. Release date in the US back to Xmas limited, Jan 10 wide. Trailer (probably) tomorrow.
  7. can you all just wait till the embargo or are we going off those who hated the film so much they decided to break it anyway
  8. Yup but showing multiple teasers in one month isn't at all a problem. Tenet is a lock for SW9, question is doing a teaser before that, which I bet they will and if they do, October/November would be far too small a gap. But still hoping this month/week
