The lockdown continues.
One good thing: Black Widow has been moved back to November 6th. That’s three days before my birthday so, assuming that I can actually go outside in November and that the Alamo Drafthouse manages to reopen, Black Widow can be my free birthday movie! (Never give up hope.)
It’s interesting to think about actually. All of the summer blockbusters are getting pushed back into what is traditionally Oscar season. So, it’s easy (or maybe just entertaining) to imagine a situation where the Oscar race comes down to Black Widow vs Wonder Woman 1984 vs Top Gun: Maverick.
We’ll see what happens! Here’s my report for this week:
