Hollywood News Banter

Hosted by

Matt Belloni, executive editor of The Hollywood Reporter joins Kim Masters to discuss top entertainment news stories of the week.

  • It’s a battle of Tarzan vs. The BFG vs. The Purge at the box office this holiday weekend.
  • Warner Bros The Legend of Tarzan has been plagued with expensive problems from conception to execution, and it’s unlikely audience will respond to the potentially dated-feeling story in the way the struggling studio needs.
  • Jason Blum’s horror film The Purge: Election Year, on the other hand, was made for only $10 million and could make more than triple that this weekend--a winning formula for Universal.
