Weekend Box Office: A New Year at the Movies


A new year has begun at the box office!

Spider-Man: No Way Home took the top spot again for the 3rd weekend, taking in $52.7 million. Its domestic total now stands at $610 million, and has entered the Top 10 All-Time list. Box office firm EntTelligence estimates that around 50 million have seen the film thus far.

Sing 2 followed with $19.6 million. Its domestic total sits at $89.6 million. The King's Man came in 3rd with $4.5 million, with American Underdog ($4 million) and The Matrix Resurrections ($3.8 million) rounding out the Top 5. Matrix had a hard 68% drop, while the rest of the top 5 only fell between 12-38%.

The domestic total for all of 2021 currently stands at $4.55 billion, over double the $2.2 billion of 2020, but still nowhere near the $11 billion range that was the norm during the years prior to covid.

Coming next weekend: The 355 is the only wide release, as A Hero goes limited, and The Tender Bar moves to Amazon.

The Cobrasnake does an interview with the It Girl Theory podcast

https://instagram.com/p/CYE2_d8pu-d


Episode description: For our season finale we went back to the source and spoke to Mark @thecobrasnake Hunter about his process, the naughties, the disappearing internet, and the final word on our most burning question: when will The Party return??

This OP listened and made some notes:

-The era of “looking like shit” made people feel like they can be spotted online too; everything is too posed these days
-His first website, Polaroid Scene, ended up being shared on the Yeah Yeah Yeahs message board – they then emailed him saying they loved the photos and asked him to come shoot them (he had to pay to get into that show)
-Says there's a romanticization of 2006-2011 because “life is boring now because of COVID” – no one is “spitting in each other’s mouths”
-Before he blew up, he was working at a Chinese restaurant making $6 an hour
-He has a coffee table book coming out in the spring
-Says Uffie has 2 kids now
-Also says there is nothing he should be cancelled for (ha!)
-Some scoop: Myspace Tom tried to make it as a rocker and had him shoot some photos; now Tom is a “tech bro”
-He became a “fitness guru” a decade ago when he got sick of going out all the time, but his book has given him a new love for what he did
-He has everything archived and is considering re-releasing it in 2022
-He is also dreaming up a documentary of the 2000s and will frame himself as washed up

A Sampling of 2022's Speculative Fiction Releases (Part 1)

As my 2022 TBR list grows, I figured - why not try to put others in the same predicament? So, here's the first part (of three or four) of some of 2022's fantasy, sci-fi, and horror novels, ordered by release date. I've tried to look up some books that perhaps weren't on my personal radar to give a mixture of books across the spec fiction category, and I have zero insights on any of these books myself, please note.

This is already a long list, so as to not make it longer, I applied a couple of rules to myself:
1. All books must have an actual release date.
2. All books must have a synopsis. (Martha Wells' rumoured Witch King comes to mind here.)
3. All books must have a title.
4. Only one book per author. (T. Kingfisher, for example, has two 2022 releases that both look intriguing.)
5. No sequels! Because that will be a separate post.

The Starless Crown by James Rollins
Release date: January 4th

Why is it on this list?: idk, I've never read anything by this author, but a fantasy book featuring a team who must come together and probably bond is a trope I'm always on board for, personally.

An alliance embarks on a dangerous journey to uncover the secrets of the distant past and save their world in this captivating, deeply visionary adventure from #1 New York Times bestselling thriller-master James Rollins.
[continued description under the cut]

A gifted student foretells an apocalypse. Her reward is a sentence of death.

Fleeing into the unknown she is drawn into a team of outcasts:

A broken soldier, who once again takes up the weapons he’s forbidden to wield and carves a trail back home.

A drunken prince, who steps out from his beloved brother's shadow and claims a purpose of his own.

An imprisoned thief, who escapes the crushing dark and discovers a gleaming artifact - one that will ignite a power struggle across the globe.

On the run, hunted by enemies old and new, they must learn to trust each other in order to survive in a world evolved in strange, beautiful, and deadly ways, and uncover ancient secrets that hold the key to their salvation.

But with each passing moment, doom draws closer.

WHO WILL CLAIM THE STARLESS CROWN?

Seattle Kraken fan called a hero after noticing Canucks staffer's cancerous mole during game



On October 23, 2021 a Seattle Kraken fan sitting behind the Vancouver Canucks bench noticed a mole on the neck of one of the staff. The woman began to bang on the glass to get his attention and show him a message she had written for him on her phone saying she was concerned that the mole was cancerous.

Brian Hamilton the Canucks assistant equipment manager later went to the doctor where the mole was confirmed to be cancerous. The doctor told him that if he had left it he would have only had 4-5 years left. On January 1, Hamilton posted a letter on the Canucks social media accounts saying the woman had saved his life and asking for help to track her down to thank her and through the power of the internet she was tracked down very quickly.

The woman, 22-year-old Nadia Popovici is a medical student. At the New Years Day game Hamilton and Popovici were able to meet face to face. During the game Popovici was recognized by the arena and it was announced that the Canucks and the Kraken were awarding her with a $10,000 scholarship.
