As the entertainment industry exponentially expands, so does its constant coverage — blogs, podcasts, YouTube shows, and magazines to cover every episode, casting announcement, trailer, and movie release that happens during the course of the week.
Add in all of those “New On Netflix This Week” articles out there and the influx of information for the average pop culture nerd can become overwhelming.
But what if someone fixed that? What if someone compiled all of the must-see trailers, all of the trendiest rumors, all of the pending release dates, all of the most-fuego latest gear into one easy-to-consume article?
What if the hero we deserve and the hero we need is actually just a weekly entertainment newsletter?
Wonder no more, because The Hot Box Office is here.

Throwback Watch of the Week
No Country For Old Men (2007)
Official Synopsis: “While out hunting, Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) finds the grisly aftermath of a drug deal. Though he knows better, he cannot resist the cash left behind and takes it with him. The hunter becomes the hunted when a merciless killer named Chigurh (Javier Bardem) picks up his trail. Also looking for Moss is Sheriff Bell (Tommy Lee Jones), an aging lawman who reflects on a changing world and a dark secret of his own, as he tries to find and protect Moss.”
Our Review: Simply put, No Country For Old Men is one of the best films of the 21st Century. Winning the Academy Award for Best Picture, while No Country For Old Men may have gone over your head when you were younger, with a few years of experience in you, it becomes a riveting, slow-burn that feels almost perfect in every moment.
Netflix Gem of the Week
Bill Burr: Paper Tiger
Official Synopsis: “Bill Burr unloads on outrage culture, male feminism, cultural appropriation, robot sex and more in a blistering stand-up special shot in London.”
Our Review: Bill Burr has been one of the premier stand-up comedians in the world for the last decade, and Paper Tiger maybe his best special yet. Similar to Dave Chappelle’s recent Sticks & Stones, Burr takes direct aim and political correctness and cancel culture, and emphatically wins.
