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.

Blade Runner 2049
Official Synopsis: “Officer K (Ryan Gosling), a new blade runner for the Los Angeles Police Department, unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. His discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former blade runner who’s been missing for 30 years.”
Our Review: Does Blade Runner 2049, which came out in 2017, count as a “throwback” watch? Absolutely not. But guess what, Daddy makes the rules around here and I was watching Blade Runner 2049 earlier this week and told myself I’d like to write about it. So, here we are.
A sequel to 1982’s visionary Blade Runner, the long-awaited sequel gorgeously adds to the franchise’s legacy with a stunning mix of surprising and emotional storytelling, solid action, and truly unbelievable cinematography.
