Has this ever happened before? Has there ever been a weekend when two such diametrically different movies opened at the same time?
To be honest, I was kind of rooting for there to be fights breaking out in theaters between the Barbie people and the Oppenheimer people. My money is on the Oppenheimer people.
Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. I’m not rooting for personal harm to anyone, but some cotton candy, popcorn, and soft drinks in everyone’s hair might have been fun. I’m not sure what the atomic bomb of theater snacks is, but you know the Oppenheimer fans would release that immediately.
What also might be fun is considering some other movie release combos that might be ridiculous:
1994: Forrest Gump and Speed: What if Forrest had to keep running from a bus that couldn’t stop?
I knew a guy in college whose last name was Oppenheimer. I really hope he went to see Barbie.
Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you have a great day, and thanks for reading! What are your ideas for the best movie mash-ups?
