Please don’t Nah I'm good. I'll wait till it's safe Every 10 years or so I bet the lead character is played by BO There was a pinnochio movie in the works? I'm watching tomorrow 😂🤣 This looks scary. Huh? Roberto Benigni’s “Life is Beautiful” is my favorite foreign film. I played Geppetto in my 5th grade production of “Pinocchio.” I. AM. HERE. FOR. THIS. cppCOM1101

Representative Mike Johnson advised Judiciary Chairman Nadler didn’t want to move on Judge Friedman but case is imminent. Nadler and Hank Johnson are compelled to move on Friedman and others in this massive probe. Why? To ensure the spread of COVID? Why is Hollywood being so “trumpish”? Why choose $$$ over life? COVID-19 will shut Hollywood down if they’re not more responsible. 🙄 IDIOTS!

So about 10 theaters? Chief Keef sister Husband *New* Music Video interest = 0 wtf is this movie? in theatres, eh? They should have released this on Halloween Wait, Roberto in yet another version of Pinocchio? His version from 20 years ago was awful. like jaw droppingly dreadful. 🥴 Wish this was out for Halloween instead...

That’s a lie! Brahms?! May god bless their souls going against Wonder Woman lol is that Roberto Benigni? the guy who made the worse career move ever by playing Pinocchio himself in 2002? Pls no I learned how to read at 5 yrs old from the 1930s book back in 1970.. I hope the movie is as messed up as the original story.

Not in CA. Theaters!!!! Is this a new horror from Blumhouse? Omg Disney 👉😂😂🤘 Lol Weird there’s no differentiation or explanation why Roberto Begnini is doing another Pinocchio after his last one flopped almost twenty years ago. Great reporting, guys. Isn’t this pretty old? dear god another horror movie? already?

This Pinocchio movie is DARK! Be aware. I can't be the only one not feeling this 'make everything live-action' trend by Disney right? Leave the classics alone!! If only I didn't live in a blue state where they have shuddered our theaters Way Better Of. Walt Disney Pinocchio. From the Cartoon Real life People

I love Roberto Benigni! So much happy energy! be afraid I’m not going to any theater to watch a movie. We’re in the middle of a pandemic 😷🦠 Hollywood needs to get their shit together and figure out something else until the vaccines start rolling out. Our country is not going to be clear of this crap until maybe summer or much later

This is going to be terrifying.
