Steven Spielberg’s “West Side Story” Didn’t Do So Well At The Box Office And People Are Blaming Ansel Elgort

December 12, 2021 / Posted by:

No film franchise is safe from Hollywood’s obsession with remakes and reboots, not even top-tier musicals like West Side Story. After long delays and early reviews calling it a “TRIUMPH” and “PHENOMENAL,”  Steven Spielberg’s take on WSS hit theaters on Friday… and it tanked, earning only around $10 million so far. For comparative purposes, its production budget was $100 million. Yikes. Spielberg and co. may have to let the Jets and Sharks loose on the streets to bully moviegoers into seeing the new WSS! Can you imagine being threatened by jazz hands when you’re just trying to buy tickets to see Encanto?

Steven Spielberg’s “West Side Story” Is Getting Rave Reviews

November 30, 2021 / Posted by:

Somebody please check on Lady Gaga because the critics are finally shouting A STAR IS BORN and it’s not because they just now got around to watching their screeners from three years ago. They are talking about Rachel Zegler who makes her big-screen debut as Maria in Steven Spielberg and Tony Kushner’s remake of West Side Story which in early reviews is being heralded as “phenomenal” and a “triumph,” with outstanding performances by Rachel, Ariana DeBose as Anita and David Alvarez as Bernardo, that Ansel Elgort is also in. Finally, Martin Scorsese can stop asking who he has to blow to get some CINEMA up in this bitch! Turns out it was his old pal Spielberg all along.

Open Post: Hosted By The Teaser Trailer For Steven Spielberg’s “West Side Story”

April 26, 2021 / Posted by:

I feel like we’ve been hearing about Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story adaptation for the better part of this millennium. After being pushed back a full year cuz of the pandemic, the movie is set to be released on December 10. And during last night’s Oscars, the trailer finally dropped! And this shit’s got it all: Ansel Elgort’s spectacularly punchable face, newcomer Rachel Zegler as Maria, lots of dancing, dance-fighting, 50s sets and costumes, the triumphant return of Rita Moreno, and Ansel Elgort’s spectacularly punchable face. Oh, did I repeat myself? Apologies. It’s just so… dang… punchable. I have to keep taking breaks from writing because my hands are involuntarily curling up into fists! That is the power of Ansel.

Disney Postponed A Bunch Of Movies Including Steven Spielberg’s “West Side Story”

September 23, 2020 / Posted by:

It’s days like today that I miss shirking all my responsibilities and taking myself for a sneaky matinee the most. Sadly, it’s just not an option right now and god knows when it will ever be again. Variety confirms that there’s really no reason for anyone to be putting their phone in airplane mode anytime soon since Disney (which owns damn near everything), has postponed a whole bunch theatrical release dates, most into next year. While it is decidedly “bad news for the exhibition industry,” at least it gives moviegoers an entire year to forget those pesky sexual assault allegations against Ansel Elgort because West Side Story is now scheduled to come out next December.

Ansel Elgort Denies Sexually Assaulting A Teenage Girl

June 21, 2020 / Posted by:

In “well, that was quick” news, Ansel Elgort is claiming that he is sowwy for how he has behaved in the past, but that he is absolutely NO predatory abuser (tell that to my eardrums when I had to, yet again, listen to that song of yours).

For those who may have lost track (there were a lot of disgusting pigs accused last week), Ansel was accused by an Instagram user of sexual assault when she was 17 and he was 20. Others also accused Ansel of trying to meet up with them when they were underage. Well, Ansel managed to tear himself away from his bathroom vanity mirror to spit out the usual defense (life is a journey, growth, etc…) BUT, while categorically denying that he’s an abuser, he goes one step further by claiming, with help from his PR team no doubt, that he and his accuser had a perfectly LEGAL and CONSENSUAL relationship, all but suggesting that she’s now speaking out after he ghosted her. And for that, he’s deeply ashamed.
