Another thing that is also interesting, Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation is the first film trilogy starring Selena Gomez and Adam Sandler. Prior to this, they had never played in a franchise consisting of more than two films.
When Sony Pictures held the premiere of Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation at Regency Village Theater, Westwood, California, last Sunday (1/7), Selena Gomez was present and became the main star. Which is also the first appearance of Justin Bieber’s ex-girlfriend at a film premiere in the last two years.
Since undergoing kidney transplant surgery in September 2017, Selena Gomez has limited her activities. In fact, he admits that he no longer lives in Los Angeles. Besides that, he also no longer tried so hard to get people to like him like he used to. In essence, Selena is trying to enjoy life.
However, unfortunately, despite still relying on the charm of Selena Gomez like the two predecessor films, Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation did not receive a positive response from critics. The story of this 97-minute animated comedy film, actually, is considered quite funny. However, overall, not good enough. Ordinary aliases.
However, even so, it seems, Sony Pictures did not bother with the opinion of the critics. For them, most importantly, the audience responded positively. The proof, during the inaugural weekend yesterday, Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation managed to reap revenues of up to USD 98 million. In fact, it was able to outperform Skyscraper (2018) by The Rock.
If the film Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation with a budget of USD 80 million continues to advance at the box office, it is not impossible, Sony Pictures will continue one of its flagship franchises. So, get ready to welcome Hotel Transylvania 4 in the next few years!
Ant-Man and the Wasp, finally, is showing in Indonesian cinemas starting this Wednesday (4/7). After “disappearing” in Avengers: Infinity War (2018), the appearance of Ant-Man has been eagerly awaited by Marvel fans. Moreover, this time, the Ant-Man does not act alone (as in his first film three years ago), but with his partner: The Wasp. aka the Wasp. Which, like Ant-Man, is also supermini-sized.
For those who have forgotten, the figure of Ant-Man, who became the alter-ego of Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), was last seen in the film Captain America: Civil War (2016). In violation of the Sokovia Agreement.
After fighting Team Iron Man, it is said, Ant-Man was captured by the American government, then detained in Raft. aka maximum security prison in the middle of the sea. However, eventually, he was released by Steve Rogers. And, after reaching an agreement with the government, Scott Lang went under house arrest for two years.
Well, the story of the film Ant-Man and the Wasp continues the events in the film Captain America: Civil War. The time setting is just before the events of Avengers: Infinity War.
And, as a result, after holding a world premiere at the El Capitan Theatre, Hollywood, on Thursday (10/5) evening local time, Ron Howard’s hard efforts, apparently, paid off. Solo: A Star Wars Story received a fairly positive response from critics. This 135-minute film, it is estimated, will make fans have mixed feelings.
