Weekend Box Office: Welcome to Week 2 of Pennywise’s Reign
It’s now been two weekends since Pennywise the Dancing Clown was unleashed upon unsuspecting audiences, and Hollywood may never be the same. Seriously. The kind of box office numbers we’re seeing right now will inspire, uh, major changes in how Hollywood tries to jump on specific trends. And while two new movies made a sort of solid showing for themselves over the weekend, the fact is this: it’s Pennywise’s world. We’re just living in it. Here’s the box office projections as of Sunday afternoon:
‘mother!’ Review: An Insane Nightmare From Darren Aronofsky
It would be an understatement to call Darren Aronofsky’s mother! simply crazy. This movie is a balls-to-the-wall bonkers nightmare that feels like diving head-first through the fiery pits of hell. It more than earns its titular exclamation point; as a matter of fact, it could use at least six more of those, bolded in 50-point font. It’s a uniquely thrilling ride ribbed with shards of dark humor, but mother! is bound to be Aronofsky’s most divisive film yet. Though wildly daring, Aronofsky’s latest is a self-indulgent melting pot exploding with too many ideas that’s as enthralling as it is frustrating.
Early Reactions to ‘mother!’ Tease Aronofsky’s ‘Masterpiece’
It’s difficult to know what to make of mother!, the latest thriller from Darren Aronofsky. The plot description sounds like a home invasion thriller, the posters pay homage to Rosemary’s Baby, and the trailers have led some to speculate that Aronofsky’s film could be anything from a vampire movie (yeah, right) to a sorta-remake of the aforementioned Roman Polanski classic. Whatever Aronofsky is up to, at least a couple of his famous friends loved it enough to share their reactions on Twitter last night following a private screening.
New Poster for ‘mother!’ Will Give You Double Vision
Another day, another mysterious poster advertising Darren Aronofsky’s mysterious mother! This one doesn’t seem to have any connotations towards any other classic horror films (unless I’m totally missing something), but it might provide a few clues as to what the movie is about? Or does it? Something tells me we won’t know what’s going on with this one until we’re actually in the theater seeing it.
New ‘mother!’ Poster Sure Looks Like Another Classic Horror
Darren Aronofsky’s mother! is intriguing just for the very fact that we know next to nothing about it, besides who’s starring and a few quick glimpses of some trailer action. But the new poster for the movie (the latest in a slew of one-sheets, each more fascinating than the last) is our biggest clue yet as to what this movie will be about, and what other classic horror movie it was influenced by.
