Weekend Box Office. What did you see?

"I enjoyed The Hustle... Always nice to see Anne Hathaway in comedies...wondering if Meryl coached her on all those accents!" - me

"My friend and I watched Under the Silver Lake last week and to this day, I still don’t know what it is about. 😔Same friend insisted that we watch Wine Country on Netflix and somehow only the white wine joke made me laugh." - goodbar

"Me Tarzan. You.... wait."

You are forgiven if you've forgotten that they're making another Tarzan picture. Hell, your host forgot it and he's kind of more into Tarzan flicks (leftover childhood obsession) than anyone he knows. The film is currently slated to open wide July 1st, 2016.

This is not a still from the film. This is Nathaniel goofing around in Photoshop

We first heard about Alexander Skarsgård's involvement almost exactly three years ago. A year later there were still casting dramas but we eventually ended up with the new Jane (Margot Robbie) and the villain (eventually Christoph Waltz... because we've never seen him do European villain before. sigh) and eventually filming happened and then the producer Jerry Weintraub died and then the director David Yates departed during lengthy postproduction to start on the new Potterverse franchise and test screenings didn't go well making its $180 production budget look more dangerous than alligators and stampeding elephants. Basically there are lots of "Tarzan's in trouble" rumors.

Will they finish it in time? Do you care? Will the deliciously exhibitionistic Alexander Skarsgård do the iconic role proud? So many questions. Stay tuned.

I like Alex but this will fail purely based on that wig. They should just camp it up and issue an X-rated version on demand.

I too like Alexander Skarsgard but.... no, this will not be any good.

Skarsgard and Robbie. I'm there. I feel every single person who sees it will get some major hit in their ego when it comes to feeling good about one's looks...
