“Gods of Egypt” is a huge flop for Lions Gate. They made $4.5 mil on Friday. Weekend projection is $13 mil but it may be lower. The sandals and and spears saga cost at least $140 mil. Lions Gate may be sold to Amazon or Starz or someone. The stock is in the toilet. I asked an LG exec if that was happening and he said, “I hope so. My stock will go up.” G-night!
Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight” nears $150 million worldwide. In the end it made money. Good news for The Weinstein Company. Composer Ennio Morricone got his star on the Walk of Fame yesterday. He may win the Oscar tomorrow. Congrats!
