    People go to movies to escape reality......wearing a mask isn’t going to let that happen so no need to go....Hollyweird apparently hasn’t gotten the message yet....

    Mortal Kombat had a WW84 scenario. the movies were just not that good to command continue success in viewing. I cannot speak for Demon Slayer since i havent watched it but i agree with Grace no matter what the scenario had been with MK it was gonna drop hard after its premiere and word of mouth spread of it being not that good of a movie.

    73% drop.. because it sucked! I saw it in thearter myself. let me also say that I've been watching movies in the theaters for 6 months now. Rona is not going to keep me away.

    Does she realize that Demon Slayer is an anime movie. You can’t compare it to a Hollywood movie. It’s was never expected for an anime movie to do as good, specially in the US.

    I don't care if theaters open up fully and I can only watch the newest movie only in theaters. I have a nice home theater system now and I can wait til it's streaming. No way I'm going back to theaters in the next few years.

    I agree with your past statement the movie industry needs to invest in drive-inns. Unless it's a huge action/adventure movie I rather stream it in the comfort of my living room at my convenience. And, I am fully vaccinated.

    Grace, I saw a Yasuke movie (or show) there! I had not idea anyone had made a movie (or show) about Yasuke, so I was surprised to see it, and delighted as well. In case you didn't know, Yasuke is a historical figure. He was a black man working for some missionaries in Japan, who was hired as a bodyguard by Oda Nobunaga and became a samurai. Yes, there was a black samurai in real life. You should totally cover that! We don't have much information about him, but what we know is quite interesting! As for Oda Nobunaga, he is the man credited with ending the Sengoku Jidai, or the Warring States Period and uniting Japan. This is one the most iconic periods in Japanese history and Yasuke was there to see it. I plan on checking out that project as soon as I'm done typing this comment and I would seriously love to know what you think about it!

    *2:50** for once they may be right, unless thr is actual hepa filtration. even in such a large space, and w 3ft being what the data say* . but w high vaccination, even 1 dose...no1 understands this stuff. i guess thats the problem. the msging on theatres should have been air filtration *EVERYWHERE* . how much are we losing a day? yes, it wont be cheap. this also wont be the last pandemic.

  • Zeku Of Bushinryu
    Zeku Of Bushinryu11 days ago

    Mortal Kombat was trash plain & simple. MK is a big franchise & fans along with newcomers were lured in by the advertising & the R rating, but after witness how awful the writing was & how mediocre many of the fights scenes were, I'd assume word got out & people were turned off from the film.

  • Hallow Knight

    Anime movies really don't do all that much in theaters to be honest but it's cool to see Demom Slayer at least going somewhere the series is so good and I really wanna see the movie at some point.

  • Rodrigo Pérez

    I used to go to the movies 2 or 3 times a week. Now I never go. Go woke, go broke. I don't even watch non-woke movies anymore. I don't want to give Hollywood a penny of my money. I'd rather buy stonks.

  • Francisco Octavius
    Francisco Octavius12 days ago

    5:05- Grace nailed the key point- Hollywood hasn’t been making any movies worth our time and money. Any unfortunately for some time. There are maybe 3 or 4 movies I would consider going to a theater to see and that was pre pandemic times. They’ve only got worse because they have no idea how to write anymore and their product is generally trash. And Falcon & WS was really bad it’s first two eps and got somewhat better ep 3 on. Still not Marvels best work.

    EASIER TO FOOL THE PEOPLE THA CONVINCE THEM THEY HAVE BEEN FOOLED . Notice Covid death toll not being reported for 4 months !! Here in TN I've been going to movie theaters since last July about every other week mostly seeing classic films , Traveled on sold out flight to CA and Back going to restaurants ( a lot ) and never got a vaccine and still not got covid 1984 . Everyone I know who got covid ( about 10 ) said it was like the flu and they bounced back 100% unlike our jobs or economy .

    I'm more surprised at the level of hype and anticipation for the new Mortal Combat, than I am to learn that it tanked it's second weekend. I've never been a fan of the ultra-viloent and gruesome video game, any interest is mere curiosity/titillation, than full on fandom/standom.

    I've been watching nothing. Many of us just don't like Hollywood anymore. We don't stream. We don't go to the movies. We don't watch the Oscars. Politics have destroyed entertainment and we're not spending our money on itanymore. We don't want to be preached to. We don't want to be called nasty names. We don't want diversity quotas. We don't want political opinions. We want entertainment and Hollywood is no longer an entertainment industry. We're done.

    The ever evolving, changing and misinformation of what is and isn’t safe continues to hit movie theaters the hardest. Noway it is any more “dangerous” with limited seating, cleaning guidelines and mask guidelines than working with others indoors for 8 hours, in-person school, or other countless indoor activities not reflagged.

    Just like books and theater, movies are about to become a hobby rather than mainstream entertainment. Technology moves so fast movies won't be able to catch up as new and exciting ways of entertainment emerge. Gaming is already ahead financially. And we have much bigger monitors now :D I was already going to theater mostly just to meet my friends. Pandemic was the final nail for me.

I wish I could go back to 1995-2005 time periods like that when we used to love celebrities and movies and everyone wasn't super bitter, pissed off or entitled. Reminiscing about old Hollywood Glamour, I took it for granted back then but now as a grown up I miss it a lot.

I actually have no intentions to watch the film until I see the first season.

    Seriously you need to stop the Movie Math. At least during the Pandemic. These drops dont really mean anything. They mean that everyone who doesnt care a pandemic is going on went to see it on opening weekend, and those who don't want to needlessly expose themselves didn't. That is the reason for the drop.

    Grace, my friend, we are in our 17th month of the year 2020. We are paying for every streaming service known to mankind. And to be perfectly honest, we are just about “movie’d” and “series’d” out of our minds. To many of us, right now,…It would be the equivalent of driving to a theater to surf USplan on a big screen with strangers. If that makes any sense. We have grown far too accustomed to simply voting a film or episode “down”, ...and clicking on an immediate replacement. Apps like Netflix and Tubi have become the equivalent of “The Gong Show”. We give something a try… Then respond with “This is stupid, let’s try something else.” It might be a while before we make any kind of investment/commitment to the theater again. Unless that screen comes with a remote control.
