Final Thought – Cinema Releases 20 December 2019 – & Box Office

Anything with J.J. Abrams name attached to it tends to mean a poor to mediocre story and flashy special effects to cover it. Personally I hope Disney retire the Star Wars franchise until Hollywood can find some talented writers, producers and directors. I won’t hold my breath.

Looking at the Cats trailer sees another bizarre looking movie and clearly one not aim at me fortunately so I think I’ll pass on that one.

Meanwhile Jumanji: The Next Level impresses at the box office in both the UK & US taking £9m and $59.2m respectively. Maybe there will be a third film!
