I meant to post this over the weekend but didn’t. 20th Century Fox’s Cinemacon presentation happened four days ago, but I have to mention what a knockout it was — a real “That’s Entertainment!” extravaganza complete with singing and dancing and white-glow-rod costumes. What a jolt to see the familiar Fox logo suddenly re-defined by white tubular neon — it took my breath away. I had to share at least this.
Posted on Saturday, 4.1: Rather than just highlight their action and CG-driven gutslam releases (as Universal did), 20th Centurt Fox ballyhooed a varied slate — Snatched (5.12), Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (5.19), Alien: Covenant (5.19), War for the Planet of the Apes (7.14), Kingsman: The Golden Circle (9.29), The Mountain Between Us (10.20), Red Sparrow (11.10), Murder on the Orient Express (11.22 — Johnny Depp plays the murdered guy), Ferdinand (12.15) and The Greatest Showman (12.25).
