And now the Exorcist is getting a reboot and Rachel Weiz has been cast as both leads in a new series based based upon Dead Ringers. Yargh:

Dear Hollywood, for the love of God will one of you buy a dictionary and look up the word ORIGINAL  noooo:

Could be good though.  The Exorcist was a brilliant basic plot, patchy script and budget filming
Well, whatever nevermind

I had my doubts when it was first announced but the Robert Pattinson Batman film may be better than I thought it was going to be.

Having heard that it's been leaked online I'm valiantly resisting the urge to go look at the Dune trailer   angel1

Ok while I admit I wasn't sure about some of the casting I am really looking forward to seeing this now.  :thumbsup:

And so it begins, Wonder Woman 1984 has been put back till Christmas. While I can appreciate the arguments cinemas are already struggling due to low numbers and reduced capacity. If the studios keep putting films back or onto VOD there isn't going to be a cinema left for them to put films on to in the future.  noooo:

It's a worry but what to do?  VOD is as much just responding to the masses of people that would rather watch pirated copies than go to the flicks.  Not just Covid threatening cinemas

The studios switching to VOD won't prevent piracy though, if anything it will make it easier as you can stream to a computer and then use video capture to record it.

I guess their theory is that many pirate copy watchers do it more for the home viewing convenience than to steal.  I'd hate to see cinemas go, they're a huge part of my life but if I'm honest mostly last century.  Gone from ~2 visits a month to ~ 2 a year in normal times.  And yes that's part explained by the content is nowadays really aimed at those much younger than baby boomers but they're the ones most likely to want to see stuff on their screen and now

I really don't know what can be done

Closed 3 days a week now. I have a grand total of 2.75 hours next week and that and that shift isn't a certainty. I'm applying for other jobs left right and centre but so far no luck  noooo:
