Aladdin (2019) Review
With a budget of over $200 million, and devoid of any A, B, C or D list talent, other than Smith and his genie, the film fails on multiple levels. There is no chemistry between Aladdin, played by Egyptian born Mena Massoud, and Princess Jasmine, played by British born Naomi Scott (who is of Indian and British heritage). The more than two hours of their flirting amounts to nothing more than a tacked on Indian style wedding reception scene during the end credits of the film. Jafar (Marwan Kenzari), instead of being scary, is just plain boring to listen to and watch. And Saturday Night Live's Nasim Pedrad, who plays Dalia, Princess Jasmine's servant, is not cut out for the big screen.
Chewbaca actor Peter Mayhew Dead at 74
Peter Mayhew, who became known to fans worldwide as the lovable Wookiee Chewbacca in the Star Wars galaxy of films, has died. He was 74. The actor died Tuesday in his North Texas home with family by his side. His official Twitter account shared the news Thursday. Mayhew had undergone spinal surgery in July in an effort to improve his mobility. The London native played Chewbacca in Star Wars (1977), The Empire Strikes Back (1980), Return of the Jedi (1983), Revenge of the Sith (2005) and The Force Awakens (2015).
Avengers Endgame Sells 40 Million Tickets in U.S First Three Days in Theaters
By now, you've heard that Avengers: Endgame earned over $356 million at the U.S. box office during its first three full days in theaters, and a total of over $1.2 billion, worldwide in the same time frame. What movie studios fail to do is report tickets sold. However, a movie like E.T. that earned $359 million during its entire first theatrical run in 1982/83 opened when movie ticket prices averaged $2.92, and opened in only 1103 theaters its first weekend, is no comparison. What this means for Avengers: Endgame is that it sold just under 40 million tickets in the United States, alone, during its first three days in theaters, based on the $9 ticket price average of 2019.
