Week in Geek #60: Disney Breaks All Time Box Office Record and More

Posted by Anthony Mango Sunday, July 28, 2019
Welcome to another edition of WEEK IN GEEK here at Fanboys Anonymous—a rundown of some of the events, news and stories that went down over the past few days in the geek culture spectrum.

This week in geek culture Fanboys Anonymous nerd recap

Here are some of the topics I felt like voicing my opinions about:

Zombieland: Double Tap Trailer

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed Zombieland, as I'm not fond of zombie movies. I'll be seeing this movie regardless of how it looks, but it's good to know that it looks funny. In particular, the thing that made me laugh was the copycat Jesse Eisenberg.

Westworld Season 3 Trailer

This looks interesting, but I really hope they've learned their lessons from the last season and don't want to purposely try to make this too complicated for the sake of it. Season 2 was so hard to follow and not as good overall compared to season 1. Let's go with more of season 1 material for season 3.

Lucifer Season 5 Expanded

The next season, which will be the last, will have 16 episodes instead of 10. I'm all for that. The 10-episode arc worked really well, but I'm also down for more episodes of a show that I love.

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood Trailer

Tom Hanks doesn't look 100% like Fred Rogers if you compare the two side by side, but if anybody was going to symbolize that wholesomeness, Hanks is probably the best one for the job.

Disney Breaks All-Time Global Ticket Sale Record

Five movies from Disney are billion dollar plus films (Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel, Aladdin, The Lion King and Toy Story). Already, they've beaten their 2016 record of $7.61 billion by grossing over $7.67 billion, and they still have some MAJOR heavy-hitter films coming out later this year in Maleficent 2, Frozen 2 and The Rise of Skywalker.

Good lord, all that money. Just give me a taste. A small taste. I can

RIP Russi Taylor

The voice actress who portrayed Martin Prince on The Simpsons has passed away at age 75. Obviously, that is very sad to hear, not just for her friends and family, but the Simpsons community as a whole, as it seems another iconic character will be retired.
