We like to make fun of the Golden Globes. With awards given out by a voting body of around 90 people, it's easy to take shots when it comes to its relevancy during award season. But one thing we can't dispute is the award show can be a huge marketing tool, and that was evident this weekend with "1917."
Universal's World War I drama from director Sam Mendes ("Skyfall"), that is told in stle that resembles the look of having continuous shot (in reality there were multiple shots), won the Globes' top prize, best motion picture — drama, last Sunday and that catapulted it to must-see-status this weekend.
The result: "1917" dethroned "Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker" from the number one spot at the domestic box office with its estimated $36.5 million take.
