With the summer in full, and the Cubs competing for the worst record in the majors, the BCB faithful should be looking for better ways to spend their time. As always, the summer box offices are thriving, as the annual blockbusters hit the theaters. However, this summer, Hollywood is going Chicagowood... as Cubs themed re-makes are flying to box offices in groves.
Here are a some previews for movies you all might enjoy, instead of watching the Cubs turn into doormats.
