The Weekend the Box Office Stood Still

by Collin Willis

The box office is at a near-complete halt due to the closures mandated by major theater chains earlier this week. With March and April’s release schedules also cleared, there aren’t any theatrical releases on the docket for some time. However, the cinema is still very much alive, or at least Netflix is. As millions flock towards pandemic and disaster movies, millions more flock to whatever they can comfortably play in the background while they fold laundry.

This week, Nick, Brennan, and I discuss our thoughts on Netflix’s self-proclaimed Top Ten, as well as some of our personal recommendations. All this and more on this week’s episode of The MovieBabble Podcast.
