ScarJo Shakes up the Industry, ‘Jungle Cruise’ Is a Jungle Snooze, and Two Flicks About ‘The Green Knight’

by Collin Willis

This week saw a heap of controversy roll through Film Twitter, starting with the news that Scarlett Johansson is suing Disney for lost profits due to the release of Black Widow on Disney+ at the same time as it hit theaters. The actress seemingly began a wave that may have repercussions for all involved in the moviemaking business, especially those below the line.

This week also saw the release of the closest thing COVID can produce similar to a blockbuster, Jungle Cruise which opened strong in theaters and at home. It was joined by the releases of StillwaterNine Days, and The Green Knight. We round out the podcast diving into the latter and contrasting it with an adaptation of the same poem, 1984’s Sword of the Valiant.

All this and more on this week’s episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!
