Living in a Post-Credit World

By Spencer Coile

Elizabeth Debicki as Ayesha in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2

I work part-time at my local movie theater.Yes,it is as glamorous as it sounds.Working there has been pretty eye-opening,leading me to witness the best and worst of humanity (he said dramatically).Lately,though,as I am cleaning the theaters,I've become privy to an ever increasing trend: the post-credit scene.BetweenKong: Skull Island,Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 (one of them features Elizabeth Debicki's Ayesha,pictured above) to even a fifteen-second long trailer to the third installment of the latest entry into the Grey world afterFifty Shades Darker,audiences have come to expect something once the credits begin to roll...

What are you up to this weekend?

This Memorial Day Weekend isn't on fire at the movies.Nobody much cares aboutBaywatch(which is neither exciting like an action movie or funny like a comedy,but can still be amply defined as an "action comedy") and a newPirates of the Caribbeanis getting only the usual flock of lemming moviegoers for an established franchise and no one else.This is,by a very wide margin,the worst opening for aPiratessequels.Elsewhere in sequel land the news isn't much better.Alien Covenant is the least popular Alien film yet if you adjust for inflation (and dont count those Predator crossovers because why would you?).WillWonder Womanturn things around next week for audience interest or is counterprogramming that Big Hollywood rarely does anymore what they actually needed to do this very summer?

In limited release,slightly better news.Two unconventional romcoms are performing pretty well: Israel's 'wedding without a groom' filmThe Wedding Planand the unfaithful ole marrieds ofThe Loversare still expanding to decent business.

Visual Effects & Makeup,the April Foolish Oscar Predix

In looking over the options for this year's visual effects and makeup and hair contenders,one thing is certain: we'll be drowning in sequels come Oscar time.Or at least come 'bake-offs' time when the these two branches whittle down the competition with screenings of clip reels of the work in question.

Some umbrella questions to consider...
