Excelsior, Spider-Man: Far From Home’s DVD And Blu-Ray Sales Are No Joke

The window between theatrical release and home media release is shorter than ever. Take Spider-Man: Far From Home; the sequel to 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, and the final installment of Phase 3, hit the big screen on July 2, and the Blu-ray and DVD release followed on October 1. 10 days later, word’s come in that Far From Home has been selling incredibly well on these formats.

According to Media Play News, Spider-Man: Far From Home is the #1 movie on both the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks the combined sales of sales of Blu-ray and DVD discs, and the specific Blu-ray sales chart for last week, ending its tracking on Saturday, October 5. While the specific amount of money Far From Home has hauled in so far on physical media wasn’t revealed, on the Blu-ray and DVD chart, it outperformed (in this order) longtime Halloween favorite Hocus Pocus, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, the Aladdin remake and Dark Phoenix.

Blu-ray discs accounted for 80% of Spider-Man: Far From Home’s first week unit sales, with 23% of the total sales coming from 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray copies. The sequel was also the #1 pick on the rental chart, pushing Aladdin to #2.

If a superhero movie does well in theaters, you can usually count on it having a good run on home media. Spider-Man: Far From Home is definitely no exception to that rule, further showing just how commercially successful it’s been. With its $1.131 billion worldwide haul, not only was Far From Home the first Spider-Man movie to hit the $1 billion mark, it’s also Sony’s highest grossing movie yet, knocking 2012’s Skyfall to second place.

Along with being a commercial powerhouse, Spider-Man: Far From Home has been met with a lot of positive reviews, ranking at 90% among critics on Rotten Tomatoes and earning an A on CinemaScore. While nearly a month passed where it looked like Far From Home would be Spider-Man’s last outing in the MCU, Disney and Sony managed to come to a new arrangement, and not only is another sequel on the calendar, but Tom Holland’s iteration of the Web-Slinger will also appear in another Marvel Studios film.

Besides exploring the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man: Far From Home also set up big things for Spidey that will take him down a path like the one his comic book counterpart has walked for years. As most fans suspected, rather than being a hero as advertised, Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio was just as villainous as he is on the printed page, and while his main plot involving the Elementals failed, he had a contingency plan in place implemented after he died. (But is he really dead?)

Just when Peter Parker thought he could catch his breath, doctored footage was released by The Daily Bugle showing Mysterio not only framing Peter for the Elemental attacks in London, but also revealing to the world that he’s Spider-Man. It’s anyone’s guess where things will go from here, outside of the fact that the public won’t be looking at him like they once did.

If you haven’t already, you can purchase Spider-Man: Far From Home on Blu-ray, DVD or Digital HD at your convenience. The next Tom Holland-led Spider-Man movie is dated for July 16, 2021, but for now, you can keep track of movies that are arriving a little sooner with our 2019 release schedule and 2020 release schedule.

Terminator: Dark Fate’s Runtime Has Been Revealed

Traveling back in time, going forward in time, saving the world in time, multiple timelines and time travel babies are all hallmarks of the Terminator films. So for a franchise that’s all about time, it’s good to know how much of it you’ll be spending in theaters for the next Terminator movie. That movie is this fall’s Terminator: Dark Fate and the runtime for the rebootquel from Deadpool director Tim Miller has just been revealed.

Terminator: Dark Fate will clock in at 128 minutes and three seconds, or two hours and 8 minutes if you prefer. This is according to the British Board of Film Classification, the NGO responsible for classifying and rating films released in the United Kingdom. The BBFC has released its rating for Terminator: Dark Fate and the film expected to be R-rated in the States has earned a “15” rating, meaning its suitable only for those age 15 and older. Along with the rating, the film’s 128 minute has been revealed.

As Terminator movies go, 128 minutes is on the longer side of things. James Cameron’s original 1984 film The Terminator remains the shortest film in the franchise at 107 minutes and Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Terminator: Salvation both clocked in at less than two hours.

The last film in the franchise, 2015’s Terminator: Genisys, was 126 minutes, so Dark Fate will just eclipse that to become the second-longest Terminator movie to date. The longest film in the series remains 1991’s iconic action classic Terminator 2: Judgment Day, which was a lengthy 137 minutes.

Other than Dark Fate, the two longest Terminator movies represent opposite ends of the spectrum for this franchise as far as quality is concerned, so it’s difficult to say we can glean a lot from the new movie’s long runtime. A longer runtime does not make a great Terminator, but the greatest Terminator movie is also the longest.

What I think we can guess based on this runtime is that there is a lot going on in Terminator: Dark Fate. This would make sense considering that thanks to the time travel conceit of the franchise, Dark Fate will be retconning the timeline and eliminating everything post T2.

Catching up with Sarah Connor, figuring out where John Connor is and explaining everything that’s happened since the second film will take some time and that’s on top of the main plot of this movie. So a long runtime could allow for all that. Plus producer and franchise creator James Cameron has said that Dark Fate could be the start of a trilogy, so over the film’s 128 minutes I think we can expect some world-building and seed-planting.

Terminator: Dark Fate opens in theaters on November 1. Check out our 2019 Release Schedule to keep track of all this fall’s biggest movies.

What Impressed Eddie Murphy The Most About Rudy Ray Moore

Eddie Murphy has gone three years without a new movie to his name, and years longer without a buzzy release under his belt. But this all changes with Dolemite Is My Name, a Netflix-produced biopic about ‘70s legend Rudy Ray Moore. Murphy embodies the all-star comedian and filmmaker, who made waves in the public eye with his own alter-ego Dolemite, an expressive pimp who wears bright suits and dons a cane.

The Beverly Hills Cop actor sounds really passionate about the legendary Rudy Ray Moore. Eddie Murphy said that he’d never come across anyone in his Hollywood career comparable to him. He explains how most people in the business have something special about them (you know… talent) that allows them to flourish in the industry. But Moore succeeds because he had confidence in himself, and that propelled him into fame and fortune.

Eddie Murphy spews a memorable quote too, describing how Rudy Ray Moore “turned shit into lemonade” instead of starting with the typical lemons. As Murphy teases, there is a certain charm to his moviemaking style that included mics that could be spotted on screen and punches obviously staged.

Rudy Ray Moore found success with his “Dolemite” and made a series of movies under the particular character, following a failing stand-up and music career. It’s fascinating to watch a real person run off belief in vision over a true eye for filmmaking, and this is what Dolemite Is My Name will entertain.

It’s perhaps comparable to Tommy Wiseau’s production of The Room, which became a cult classic after the mysterious director and star poured millions in the deliciously bad story and vision. It’s since become a popular “bad movie” still watched by millions, and was recently adapted into a biopic, The Disaster Artist, by James Franco.

Dolemite Is My Name is currently in select theaters and will be avaliable to stream on Netflix starting October 25.

John Cena Has Wrapped On Fast And Furious 9, According To Vin Diesel

The next Fast & Furious movie is currently filming and, while a lot of the details are obviously been kept under wraps, the biggest piece of news for Fast & Furious 9 is the John Cena has joined the cast. As expected, we know essentially nothing about what character Cena is playing or how that character fits into the story, but whatever Cena has brought to the production, he has now left it all on screen. John Cena has completed his work on the new movie.

The announcement of John Cena leaving the set came via Vin Diesel’s Instagram, where, with Cena standing behind him, Diesel announced the departure, saying…

16 weeks is a lot of weeks and if John Cena has been there the whole time, as Vin Diesel is implying with “finally,,” then we can confirm that Cena’s role is a significant one. Is he a hero or a villain? We have no idea. If he’s one of the good guys then he’s probably a new member of the “family,” If he’s a bad guy then he must be a significant one if he’s been shooting for 16 weeks.

Of course, the fact that Cena is done after 16 weeks but filming hasn’t wrapped entirely means that some of the crew still has more to do.

Vin Diesel says here that he’s had the “great pleasure” of working with Cena, but he doesn’t stop there. He continues to heap praise on Cena as an actor as well as the character that he plays in the movie. He tells his Instagram followers that fans will be “blown away” and “ecstatic” when they see what John Cena does in this movie. He’s selling this hard.

The franchise promotes the idea that the family dynamic of the characters also exists among the actors — or at least most of them — and it sounds like John Cena has officially joined the behind-the-scenes family. With at least one more of the movies planned, it seems likely we could see Cena return for Fast & Furious 10.

Of course, the Fast and Furious franchise never does anything small, so it shouldn’t be all that shocking that John Cena is being hyped to the moon. The Fast & Furious franchise has been the home to some pretty epic moments over the years. I’m sure John Cena will have some great stunt moments of his own in the new film. I would suggest he could jump off a moving tank, or physically divert a torpedo, but that’s all been done before.

Check out Vin Diesel’s full comments about how awesome John Cena is in the clip below.

Fans of the Fast & Furious and fans of John Cena likely have a lot to look forward to with Fast 9. It sounds like it’s going to be pretty epic. We’ll get to see it all when Fast 9 hits theaters in may of 2020.

John Boyega’s Agent May Have Leaked When The Next Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Trailer Will Hit

While the summer box office was dominated by the Marvel Cinematic Universe, another major Disney-owned franchise is looming above the Holiday Season. The Star Wars franchise will return to theaters this December with The Rise of Skywalker, and the pressure is definitely on for. J.J. Abrams to deliver with his highly anticipated blockbuster. The nine-film Skywalker Saga will end with Episode IX, so fans are eager for any information ahead of its release. And now it looks like we may know when The Rise of Skywalker‘s full trailer will hit, thanks to John Boyega’s agent of all people.

John Boyega’s agent is Femi Oguns, who had his own career as an actor previously. Oguns represents some especially talented British actors, including Boyega and Black Panther‘s Letitia Wright. While the secrets of the Star Wars franchise are typically kept under lock and key, the agent recently took to social media to reveal that the new trailer will come during next week’s Monday Night Football. Check it out below.

Well, this is exciting. It looks like the full trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is just days away. The upcoming blockbuster will continue the story following Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi. And considering how high the stakes are, the generations of Star Wars fans are eager for any glimpse at Episode IX. Luckily, that time has nearly come.

Femi Oguns’ Instagram post is sure to make Star Wars fans very happy. Every day is one step closer to the release of The Rise of Skywalker. The upcoming blockbuster will conclude the current trilogy of movies, and hopefully win back naysayers who took umbrage with the events of The Last Jedi. As if that wasn’t daunting enough of a task, J.J. Abrams will also have to give the overall franchise an ending. No pressure, though.

The Star Wars franchise is methodical about its marketing, largely in an attempt to keep the secrets of each new release. The galaxy far, far away keeps footage limited with trailers, allowing audiences to go into theaters with fresh eyes. The Rise of Skywalker will be no exception in this way, especially considering the upcoming movie’s sky high stakes.

The story of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is currently a mystery, as we’ve only seen a brief teaser with content from the movie. Episode IX will reportedly feature a time jump, allowing for the sequels’ story to be more expansive. The group of heroes will reportedly be together for quite a bit of the movie’s runtime, in stark juxtaposition to the previous two installments. After all, Poe only met Rey for the first time in the final moments of The Last Jedi.

John Boyega’s Finn has been teased as a bonafide Resistance leader, after stumbling his way into the galactic conflict in the last two movies. I’m eager to see how he factors into the larger story, as Poe and Rey’s roles seem more clear as the protegees of Leia and Luke respectively. Plus, he’s currently in the middle of the galaxy’s hottest love triangle, with feelings for both Rey and Rose Tico.

All will be revealed when Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters on December 20th. In the meantime, check out our 2019 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.

To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right The Addams Family Ticket

Before you snap your fingers and buy a movie ticket to The Addams Family, it’s worth asking: “To 3D, or Not To 3D?” For our official review of the new ghoul tale, stay tuned! But if you’re itching to know if it’s worth seeing the release with tinted glasses on, make yourself at home! We have a full run-down to die for…

The Addams Family is best known as a ‘60s sitcom featuring black humor and sinister-looking creatures in a haunted mansion. This doesn’t particularly scream 3D format, but the animated film does embrace adventure and physical comedy elements often found in the genre’s 3D flicks. You’ll be immersed in some 3D concept shots and techniques throughout The Addams Family. But the film’s more simplistic animation style and bleak color palette doesn’t exactly lend itself to the format as well as other movies might. While the movie doesn’t feel completely at home in 3D, it does add to the enjoyment of the experience!

Although The Addams Family isn’t the perfect fit for 3D as a film, there are some fun places where the format implements the technology. The filmmakers thought through some of the specific shots for a 3D audience that benefits the viewing. One early sequence that has Gomez and Morticia’s son Pugsley rocketing explosives into midair is exhilarating to witness on the big screen. Wednesday’s crossbow acts as a particularly amusing element to the format. It does feel as though there were missed opportunities to really take advantage of 3D.

The Addams Family has some elements perfect for jumping out at the screen. “Thing” the crawling hand, for instance, often lends a limb to the format at the front of the screen. Other examples include shots involving swordplay – since the plot revolves around an Addams family ritual involving Pugsley mastering a traditional sword technique – and Lurch (the Frankenstein-esque butler) scaling tunes on the haunted mansion’s grand piano. The movie does a nice job of showcasing the 3D technology with a few “jump-out-at-ya” moments that contribute greatly to the experience.

Just as important as objects coming off the screen in a 3D movie is a nice use of depth, and The Addams Family uses this to its advantage as well. Much of the use of background 3D has to do with the interactive house of the ghoul family and their home sticking out like a sore thumb in the neighboring new town. The movie has cool effects when it comes to the fog surrounding the Addams’ residence. The use of “beyond the window” is impressive, but doesn’t send jaws dropping for extended periods.

It’s tough to give a movie with characters made up of colors largely in the grayscale a perfect 5 of 5 brightness score. The Addams Family implements the aesthetic of the beloved television show by giving the core family and house they live in a bleak color palette. They are contrasted by a brightly lit neighborhood below them. Still, the 3D is able to thrive in the grays and blacks the movie largely consists of, thus providing a positive viewing experience for moviegoers in this format. The dark elements such as the mansion are more than visible and bright enough.

As previously described, The Addams Family isn’t an incredibly intensive 3D film. There’s not always something going on to make you feel engrossed in the format, though it does makes good use of it when it is implemented. Since the movie is mostly dialogue scenes between the characters and doesn’t involve constant image manipulation, you could take off your glasses intermittently and not be bothered by the image. The blurriness isn’t incredibly bothersome when glasses are off, further indicating the movie may not be an expertly planned visual spectacle for the format.

A lot of the time when audiences contemplate viewing a movie in 3D, worries of leaving with headaches or discomfort due to the technology are something often kept in mind. The Addams Family is perfectly executed with these health concerns in mind. It’s an effortless viewing experience with your glasses on. The 3D isn’t constantly in your face, there’s easy-on-the-eyes muted colors and the runtime is a breezy 87 minutes. There’s fun elements of 3D to catch throughout but it’s not actively overwhelming the senses or leaving you queasy.

The Addams Family isn’t a “must-see 3D” type of movie. Its content doesn’t make a strong case for paying the extra dollars for to experience as such. This is largely due to the movie’s bleak setting and somewhat unattractive animation. It does make efforts to be a 3D viewing experience, and if you enjoy watching animation movies in this format, it does deliver! However, I wouldn’t recommend Addams Family particularly for its image manipulation in 3D, because it’s just not as impressive in the format as other movies in theaters can offer.

How Will You See The Addams Family?

Jared Leto Allegedly Didn’t Respond Well To Losing Joker To Joaquin Phoenix

Jared Leto allegedly didn’t respond well to losing Joker to Joaquin Phoenix. The Oscar-winning actor played the Clown Prince of Crime once in Suicide Squad in 2016 before the role was given to Joaquin Phoenix for a standalone Joker origin film not tied to the existing DCEU. Joker came as a surprise to fans, but for Jared Leto, it may have been a rather unpleasant one.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, when former Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara and Toby Emmerich greenlit Joker, actor Jared Leto felt alienated and upset. It’s unclear if this is based on something Jared Leto said and it should be taken as a rumor until we hear Jared Leto’s account of events (if we ever do), but if true, it’s kind of understandable that the actor felt that way. This isn’t the first time that we’ve heard Jared Leto wasn’t happy about Joker either.

Back in 2017 when Joker was coming together and before Joaquin Phoenix was cast, it was reported that Jared Leto was allegedly caught off guard by news of the film and that he expressed his displeasure at the multiple cinematic Jokers to his agents at CAA. In addition, following the announcement of Joker, Jared Leto did say that he was confused by what was going on at DC and with his character.

So to hear that he apparently felt alienated and upset at Joker would be in keeping with the existing rumors about his feelings on the matter. And if Jared Leto did feel alienated and upset by the Joaquin Phoenix film, no one could really blame him.

Jared Leto is an Oscar-winning actor and he had just played Joker in 2016’s Suicide Squad, so he might have felt like chop liver when another actor was given the role. Just as there was among the fandom, there was surely confusion about what his future would be with the character and if he was being pushed out for some reason.

This must have been quite frustrating for the actor to feel like he was being replaced, especially after Suicide Squad. It seems that a lot of Joker scenes in David Ayer’s film were left on the cutting room floor so he arguably didn’t get a fair shake at the character and audiences didn’t get the full picture of his portrayal. It would be understandable for Jared Leto to feel alienated or feel like he was being penalized for something that wasn’t entirely his fault.

For a while it seemed like we might get more of Jared Leto’s Joker when it was announced that he would be getting his own standalone Joker film. There was also talk of a Joker and Harley Quinn movie. Neither of those things ever materialized (yet) and Jared Leto’s Joker is not in any of the upcoming movies you might think he would be in.

Joker is now playing and Morbius hits theaters on July 31, 2020. Check out our 2020 Release Schedule to see what other big movies are coming next year.

Jumanji: Next Level Star Kevin Hart’s Car Accident Report Has Been Released

When Kevin Hart’s vintage 1970 Plymouth Barracuda lost control and slid down an embankment in Los Angeles a few weeks ago, both Hart and the passengers in his car were injured in the process and the police were called. Which means a subsequent investigation was underwent and today we learned the results of the car accident report.

First and foremost, the accident report has determined the cause of the crash was human error and not some sort of malfunction. In fact, according to the California Highway Patrol, the Plymouth vehicle was being driven recklessly by Kevin Hart’s friend Jared Black at the time the accident occurred.

Per the report, however, though reckless driving was involved, Black was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time. In a statement (via Fox News), Kevin Hart also spoke out about not feeling any anger toward his friend following the accident. The succinct statement his attorney sent out notes:

Both Kevin Hart and Jared Black suffered back injuries in the accident. Rebecca Broxterman also suffered from minor injuries after the car went down an embankment and ultimately hit a tree. Yet, it looks like Kevin Hart is choosing to see “the upside” of this incident.

Regardless, it is worth pointing out the accident has had a large affect on Kevin Hart’s personal and professional life. The typically prolific actor had to undergo surgery and allegedly some projects are on hold while he recuperates. He’s also been doing physical therapy to get back in shape and hopes to be back to work in 2020.

It does seem as if recovery is coming along well, however. A new report this week has indicated Kevin Hart is back in the game. He did some preliminary marketing for Jumanji: The Next Level with his co-stars Dwayne Johnson, Danny Glover and Danny DeVito. They all allegedly reworked their own schedules so that the actor could be involved in the process.

Kevin Hart has a couple of movies set to come out over the next few months. The first is the aforementioned Jumanji: The Next Level, which will hit theaters on December 13. The second is a movie called Fatherhood, directed by Paul Weitz. That movie is expected to hit theaters in April of 2020 and features a solid cast including Alfre Woodard, Paul Reiser, Lil Rel Howery and more.

Once he gets back to work in more of an avid fashion, we’ll likely be able to tell you where the actor and producer is at with some of the other projects he had in the works at the time of the accident. In the meantime, we wish Kevin Hart a speedy recovery and are thankful we’ll still get to see him on the big screen in the coming months.

Has Nathan Fillion’s The Suicide Squad Role Been Revealed?

A whole host of actors were rumored to be joining The Suicide Squad over the last several months, and when Warner Bros. and director James Gunn finally revealed the main cast, nearly every one of the rumored names was confirmed to be accurate. However, while we now know who will be in the movie, we are largely in the dark regarding who all these great talents will be playing.

However, there are still plenty of rumors abounding regarding which DC comics heroes and villains will be joining the new Suicide Squad. If these rumors are as accurate as the casting rumors were, then we may actually know who some of these actors will be playing. Most interestingly, it looks like Nathan Fillion‘s role in the movie may have been revealed. He’s playing the utterly obscure and bizarre DC character known as Arm-Fall-Off-Boy.

Charles Murphy of the Murphy’s Law podcast is confirming a report from another podcast, which claimed Fillion would be playing the character named Floyd Belkin, otherwise known as Arm-Fall-Off-Boy. While the character feels like somebody that DC Comics might have introduced in the 1960s, he actually first appeared in 1989. His super power is the ability to, as his name implies, remove his own arms, and his legs too for that matter. He then can use his limbs as weapons, so he can pull off one arm, swing it with the other, and potentially beat you to a pulp with it. This is the worst possible way to be defeated by somebody with superpowers.

Arm-Fall-Off-Boy first appeared in Secret Origins Vol. 2 in 1989. He was most recently featured in Legionnaires #43, which you can check out here, from 1996. Although, in that comic the character is reintroduced under the slightly less goofy superhero name of Splitter, though his power set remains the same.

Needless to say, a character who can beat up bad guys with his own arm is an utterly bizarre idea for a character, but at the same time, it makes perfect sense. This is exactly the sort of character that you’d expect to show up in The Suicide Squad when the director and lead actor of Slither reunite.

The confirmation refers to Fillion’s character as a “non-lead role” so it doesn’t appear that Arm-Fall-Off-Boy will be a major player in the film. Perhaps he’ll be a character who only shows up in one scene and is a rejected candidate for the new Squad. Nathan Fillion has shown up in many of James Gunn‘s films over the years but he rarely plays significant roles, so this might be little more than a cameo, similar to what Fillion has done with Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy movies.

Still, the fact that a character like Arm-Fall-Off-Boy is going to even appear in this movie gives us a bit of an indication of just what sort of movie we’re in for. I couldn’t imagine a character like this showing up in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad movie. It seems a serious shift in tone is in the cards.

We’ll find out for sure when The Suicide Squad hits screens in 2021.

Zombieland: Double Tap Has Screened, See What People Are Saying

Zombieland was a big hit with fans when it hit screens, but that was a decade ago. 10 years later, we finally have the long-teased and highly anticipated sequel. The world premier of Zombieland: Double Tap took place last night, and with it come the first reactions. It seems to be pretty universally agreed that, if you were one of those people that has been waiting for the sequel, you’ll find the wait was worth it.

Not only is Zombieland: Double Tap apparently as funny as the first movie, it’s style of humor will likely very much remind fans of the first movie. Digital Spy says the humor hasn’t been updated since the last movie, which may or may not be a compliment, but if what you’re looking for Double Tap is simply more Zombieland, the new movie will provide that for you.

While that response seems to be at least potentially lukewarm, the rest of the reactions to Zombieland: Double Tap feel a bit more welcome. The movies is funny, plain and simple.

Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, and Abigail Breslin are back and, based on the responses, the foursome hasn’t missed a beat. 10 years have passed in the movie as well as in real life, so the characters have been through a lot, but they are still together, which means quite a bit considering the world that they live in.

However, a sequel still has to change things up, and Zombieland: Double Tap does that with a collection of brand new characters. All of the new additions are receiving praise alongside the original cast, but the majority of the praise seems to be going to Zoey Deutch. She appears to steal the movie more than any other single character, at least according to one critic.

More than one person has remarked about how much like 2009 the new Zombieland actually feels. This likely, at least in part, is because the new movie waited for the screenwriting due of Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese to find the right script. Between multiple attempts over the last few years that just didn’t work out for one reason or another, combined with the distraction that is the successful Deadpool movies, we begin to see why this movie took so long to produce. Luckily, it seems the wait was worth it, and once you sit down in the theater, it won’t feel like much time has passed at all.

Fans will certainly be happy to know that the wait hasn’t been in vain. If you loved the first Zombieland, then the sequel will likely hit all those buttons once again. So often waiting this long for a sequel leads to disappointment, and this year a lot of sequels have underperformed. The deck may be stacked against Zombieland but it’s going to try and give “the deck” a serious headshot.

Zombieland: Double Tap is in theaters now.
