☀️UNI's EXORCIST Falls Short; More Layoffs Hit the Town
AMAZON NFL growth keeps going strong / Strikes & more hitting CANDLE 2023 profit margin / FOX, NETFLIX cancel more series
Mornin! This is Sean McNulty (connect with me on LinkedIn here if ya like), and here’s the Hollywood + Media news to know on SUNDAY Oct 8, 2023.
Where first, I hope you were able to spend time with family and loved ones this weekend, as the images that come out of ISRAEL (not to mention the ongoing ones from UKRAINE) just continue to astound, and remind us that a peaceful existence is far more fragile of a concept in many other parts of the world.
SECONDLY: Yes, you’re getting this on a Sunday night! I’d say I’m trying something new… but I just got into LA this evening and really need the morning to adjust and uh, not wake up before dawn.
As do the COWBOYS — wtf was that NINERS game tonight?? 😖 But a thanks goes to Dallas for making me feel better about the disaster of a GIANTS game earlier today 🤝.
Though hey - if you like a Sunday night newsletter instead of Monday AM - email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, always open to changing things up a little.
PLUS: Here are the new 2024 dates for the rescheduled Springsteen tour dates from this autumn.
WAKEUP BOX OFFICE RESULTS:
Kudos to the bears! I guess reviews matter in horror somewhat too… good note to remember.
