So, we’re off to see a puppet movie on Sunday. Come join us. But, with it being the last weekend before football starts, why aren’t the studios dropping a big movie on us. There really isn’t a lot going on but let’s see what’s new this week as we bring you our Friday segment “Whaddya Got On Tap?”

Are you sitting in your cubicle with stacks of TPS reports to go through? Listening to that conference call where everyone is talking at the same time about nothing at all that matters? Stuck at the water cooler hearing how Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom rampaged all the competition to take the #1 spot this past weekend! Need something to watch with that flask in your desk and that burned microwave popcorn from the break room? Let us share movie trailers with you with this week’s The Thursday Trailer Tap

CocktailsandMovies.com Fall & Year End 2017 Movie Preview

by Tim Barley, Mike Reyes, and Duwayne Tso

The fate of the 2017 box office rests on the next three months of movies

Cocktailers, the days are growing shorter, and the movies are growing deeper. What was traditionally the time for audiences to flood to the box office (Summer) was a disaster this year. The Summer 2017 box office was the worst in 25 years. And now, every studio is banking on some big movies to stem their losses. Some Fall movies have built in audiences (Star Wars: The Last JediThor: Ragnarok), but others will have to struggle to bring in money against the NFL, and a world that just seems out of control. So, let’s take a look at the next three months and get our main contributors’ takes on what we can expect between now and New Year’s Eve as we look at the 2017 CocktailsandMovies.com Fall Movie Preview.

A Summer of Bombs (and not the sake kind)

Thank God that 2017 Summer of movies is over!

Hi, everyone! Let me start by saying that I love the movies. I always have and I always will. Something about the two to three hours of time that I can spend alone (as I do on a weekday when I go to the movies) or with 100 to 200 others who love the spectacle on the big screen (as do with our events) lets me forget about the rest of the world and the problems in it. Onscreen, I can see problems set up and resolved within the time it takes me to drink a couple of cocktails and eat a big bucket of popcorn with peanut M&M’s mixed in. (then figure out how much gym time I am going to need to balance that out). That being said, I played more golf this summer than I saw movies, which is sad. So, let’s take a look at the summer 2017 box office, hand out a few Cristal mimosas and quite a few bloody mary awards.
