Paul Mescal Has Weighed In On Gladiator 2 And Wicked Being The Next Barbenheimer And He Revealed His Preference For The Double Feature’s Name

Movies



Despite another summer movie having a great debut at the summer box office this past holiday weekend with Despicable Me 4, the movie season just isn’t hitting the same as last year. Why? Well, remember Barbenheimer? We don’t have one of those this season. There was something really special about the internet agreeing on the obscure double feature and turning out (and even dressing up) big time for it. So the idea of Gladiator 2 being part of its own special double feature with Wicked later this year not only has moviegoers excited, but also Gladiator 2 star Paul Mescal

Last week, Universal decided to change Wicked’s date to open on the same release day as Ridley Scott’s Gladiator 2, and thus “Wickediator” was born. Cinephiles have been taking to the internet to merge the two movies together in memes and such –much like what occurred with Barbie and Oppenheimer when their dates were revealed. In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Paul Mescal revealed his thoughts on the two movies opening on the same day: 

Wickdiator doesn’t really roll off the tongue does it? I think my preference would probably be Glicked if it has a similar effect to what it did for Barbie and Oppenheimer. It would be amazing ’cause I think the films couldn’t be more polar opposites and it worked in that context previously. So fingers crossed people come out and see both films on opening weekend.
