We only have 4 movies remaining this summer that have been selected, and this weekend’s Nope (30 players) is one of our wildcards. Is it horror? Is it sci-fi? Is it dark comedy? Why not all of them? We can pretty much agree that Downton 2 and Bob’s Burgers are on the chopping block, and with Nope projected at $55M it’s looking like a pretty solid choice. And how can you not dig all of these promotional posters??
