On this episode of The Fanboy Garage, we quickly summarize the results of this weekend’s box office (flop-office) where movies like Dark Phoenix and MIB International fall short of projections and consumer interest.
From there, we clear the air and report the real news behind the deal between JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot and Warner Media. With a price tag of $500 million, the deal re-ups Bad Robot with Warner Brothers ahead of the launch of the rumored Warner Media streaming service.
In other news, we discuss the recent announcement that Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy has named Michelle Rejwan as SVP of Live Action Development and Production for Lucasfilm. Staying in a galaxy far far away, we discuss our hopes on for a potential movie set in the era of the Old Republic.
To close, we talk about the potential of new a la carte broadcast opportunities as streaming services become a dime a dozen and what consumers should expect in the months to come.
