Steve Jobs & Jem And The Holograms Tanked So Hard They're Already Leaving Theaters!

no title

We had a feeling that Universal's Jem and the Holograms big screen reboot was going to flop — but we didn't think it would be THIS bad!

The feature length adaptation of the popular ‘80s cartoon, which opened on October 23, has performed so poorly at the box office that Universal is reportedly pulling it from theaters after only two weeks — something unheard of for a movie that was released nationwide!

But even Aaron Sorkin's critically acclaimed biopic Steve Jobs isn't safe from a dismal box office performance!

After ticket sales declined over 69 percent from the film's previous weekend to around $823,000, the Michael Fassbender-led movie was pulled from 2,072 screens!

Movie studios can't win 'em all! Both these flicks flopped bad, but…

Steve Jobs — the bio-pic about the late Apple founder — opens Friday and is already receiving some pretty favorable early reviews.

It looks like Cate Blanchett has got some 'splaining to do!

It's been reported that the Carol actress is set to star as comedy legend Lucille Ball in an upcoming biopic!

Set to pen the script is Aaron Sorkin, who is no stranger to big budget biopics. Sorkin won an Oscar for his Mark Zuckerberg script The Social Network, and he also has a Steve Jobs film coming out later this year!

Ball has previously been the subject of two TV movies — 2003's Lucy starring Rachel York, and 1991's Lucy & Desi starring Frances Fisher!

We don't want to get our hopes up, but we can smell the award buzz already!

The Steve Jobs Movie Has Been Dropped Like An iPhone! Is It All Because Christian Bailed Out?

Filed under: Film FlickersChristian BaleGIFs

no title

"Let me say this in a way you'll understand. No Christian Bale?! NO MOVIE!!"

At least that's how we imagine it went down over at Sony.

After Christian bailed on the project, it looks like the Steve Jobs biopic is no more.

The film, which was written by Newsroom creator Aaron Sorkin and was set to be directed by Slumdog Millionaire's Danny Boyle, has been put in turnaround.

That's a Hollywood euphemism for "not being worked on anymore."

Even with names like Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, and Seth Rogen mentioned in relation to the biopic, it looks like the project has run out of battery power.

The movie sounded like a winner, so who knows? Maybe it'll find its feet somewhere else.
