Yahoo Entertainment debuts an exclusive deleted scene, set in a hospital waiting room, from "The Big Sick," featuring Kumail Nanjiani, Ray Romano, and Holly Hunter.
Still, 'Apes' is the latest franchise title to come in behind the last installment as Hollywood battles sequel fatigue; elsewhere, 'Wish Upon' gets lost, while 'The Big Sick' places No. 5 in its nationwide expansion.
Considering how back-loaded the release schedule is when it comes to awards-friendly films, it’s an encouraging sign that there have already been several movies from the first half of 2017 that could easily wind up in the Oscar conversation. True, a couple of them (Mudbound, Call Me by Your Name) premiered at Sundance and won’t get distributed until the fall, but there are plenty that have already dropped, from the art house (The Lovers, The Big Sick) to the cineplex (Get Out, Wonder Woman). Juno could provide the template for this touching and crowdpleasing rom-com based on the real-life coupling of Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon.
