Terrible news! The execs at Netflix have reversed the season 4 order of GLOW and the show will not be returning! Season 4 was going to be the final season for the series, but it had to be pulled due to concerns over filming during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’ve made the difficult decision not to do a fourth season of GLOW due to COVID, which makes shooting this physically intimate show with its large ensemble cast especially challenging,” said a Netflix spokesperson. “We are so grateful to creators Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, Jenji Kohan and all the writers, cast and crew for sharing this story about the incredible women of GLOW with us and the world.”

Great news! It was announced that Alison’s latest movie The Rental is ranked #1 at the U.S. box office for two weeks in a row, as reported by Deadline.

IFC’s Dave Franco-directed horror movie The Rental continued to hold its lease atop the box office for a second weekend in a row, grossing $317,823 from 242 locations. Pic’s 10-day gross stands at $916,333.

The Rental reps the first No. 1 movie for the indie distrib (My Big Fat Greek Wedding, if you remember, only got up to the No. 2 spot for three weekends in a row starting in Labor Day 2002). Again, The Rental is the second new title to hold the top spot at the box office since the major chains closed down in mid-March, after Universal/DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls World Tour. Black Bear produced and financed The Rental.

The Rental continues to hold strong digitally, maintaining the No. 1 spot on iTunes’ Horror charts this week, as well as placing within the platform’s top 10 overall.

It is being reported by Deadline that The Rental is the number 1 movie during this weekend’s box office!

According to box office figures we’ve gotten our hands on this morning, IFC’s Dave Franco-directed horror feature The Rental is leading at the weekend box office, having logged roughly an estimated $130K yesterday at 251 locations. The movie should rake in north of $400K for the 3-days. The Rental, Franco’s feature directorial debut, is also available in homes to rent this weekend.

A majority of that is from drive-in theaters, which continue to be the leading exhibitors at the weekend box office, despite the fact that they only make up about a third of the current number of theaters open (between 1,2K-1,5K).

These numbers do not come from IFC, which the distributor will make official tomorrow. Note, IFC has been one of a few indie distributors to publicly report their official weekend box office numbers throughout the exhibition pandemic shutdown, and they’re on their way to making over $3M from the mid-March to current July span, something to applaud in what is sadly a very distressed business right now.
