Movie & TV Hype: AMC Theatres Loses Sight, I'll Wait For History of The World Part III & Someone Lose A King?

The biggest movie news, other than so man theaters simply going away, is how AMC is try to grab more cash to stay afloat. Idiotically called Sightline, soon you'll be paying more or less for where your seat is in an AMC. Those with a better view of the screen will cost more. So, closer up seats will be cheaper. Lame. Just go to another theater to show your disapproval.

History Of The World, Part II just doesn't look very funny. The latest trailer looks like they spent the budget of Drunk History on the show, but doesn't look like it'll get the same amount of laughs. My guess was the comedians thought they did an amazing job, but test audiences hated it. Hulu had to release it in any case. Out this March. Oy, really wanted to love this Mel Brooks sequel, but not sure what level his input even was.

The Lost King, just looks like a charming silly indie I'd watch on a weekend. Not sure, how it'll do in theaters.
In this inspiring true story, amateur historian Philippa Langley believes she has made the archeological find of the century: the lost burial site of King Richard III. She takes on Britain’s most eminent historians, forcing them to rethink the legacy of one of the most controversial rulers in English history.
