Ready Player One Pushed Into 2018 To Avoid Clash With Star Wars: Episode VIII

5 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following in the footsteps of James Cameron’s long-gestating Avatar sequel, Warner Bros. has officially pushed pack Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One film into 2018.

Originally scheduled to open on December 15, 2017, the sci-fi adaptation will now hit theaters on March 30, 2018. Yes, it seems Disney and Lucasfilm’s decision to bump Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: Episode VIII into late 2017 – December 15, to be specific – has had a resounding effect on Hollywood’s slate of blockbusters, setting off a domino effect that has now made an impact on Warner’s release plans for Spielberg’s futuristic tentpole.

Given that Ready Player One is still simmering in pre-production, news of delay shouldn’t prove too damaging for the studio’s adaptation of Ernest Cline’s eponymous novel. At the time of writing, only Olivia Cooke and Ben Mendelsohn have been confirmed to star, with the latter on board to play the role of the film’s chief villain. »

21st Century Fox Earnings: Cable Gains Can’t Lift Weaker Film Results

8 February 2016 1:23 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Updated: Lackluster home entertainment results, a weaker film slate and difficult foreign exchange rates pushed revenues and profits at 21st Century Fox down during the media conglomerate’s most recent fiscal quarter.

Revenues hit $7.38 billion, down 1% from the prior year, missing analysts expectations. Earnings per share topped off at 44 cents compared to 53 cents per share in the year-ago period, which was roughly in line with projections.

Wall Street was expecting earnings of 44 cents a share and $7.51 billion in revenue. It was a quarter that saw the return of Fox’s television hit “Empire,” the release of Ridley Scott’s space epic “The Martian” and several tussles between Fox News and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. There’s also been some preemptive belt-tightening. Last week, word leaked that the media conglomerate is initiating a voluntary buyout program as it looks to reduce staff overhead by $250 million in the coming fiscal year. »

Oscars 2016: David vs. Goliath In Best Picture Race

8 February 2016 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The stage is set for a David vs. Goliath battle at the 88th academy awards.

In one corner are the Goliath box office hits that Oscarcast viewers have heard of — and maybe even seen: This year’s top three on the nominations tally are Fox’s “The Revenant” (12 noms), Warner Bros.’ “Mad Max: Fury Road” (10) and Fox’s “The Martian” (seven).

Together, they’ve amassed over $1.2 billion at the global box office.

In the other corner are the likes of Fox Searchlight’s “Brooklyn,” which was acquired at Sundance and had a production budget of $11 million, and A24’s “Room,” which is the first best picture nominee for the emerging studio.

Together, they’ve made just over $40 million at the domestic box office (though neither one is close to finished, especially with three weeks to go until the Oscars).

Blockbuster Oscar winners such as “Rocky” and “Titanic” have given way »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens passes $2bn at global box office

Star Wars: The Force Awakens becomes only the third film ever to take $2bn at the box office. It won't be toppling Avatar, though.

A month and a half after it stormed into cinemas worldwide, Jj Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens has become only the third film ever - and the first not to be directed by James Cameron - to pass $2bn at the global box office.

The movie is by distance the biggest film of all time at the American box office, where it's taken $905m (comfortably ahead of Avatar's $760m Us haul). Elsewhere in the world, it's now added $1.1bn, to give the film a running total of $2.008bn and counting. It should still attract a few more quid, before the film finally heads to disc this April.

What it won't do is dislodge Avatar as the biggest grossing movie of all time. »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens becomes only the third movie ever to gross $2 billion worldwide

7 February 2016 9:58 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having become the first release ever to gross $900 million at the North American box office this past Friday, Star Wars: The Force Awakens has now achieved another milestone, with the movie crossing the $2 billion mark worldwide today.

It’s only the third time ever that a film has reached the landmark figure, with James Cameron achieving the feat twice with Titanic ($2.187 billion) and Avatar ($2.788 billion). However, it is unlikely that The Force Awakens will have enough left in the tank to knock either of those from their current positions and will surely have to settle for third in the list of the highest-grossing movies of all time, leaving Cameron as the king of the box office world.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Crossed $2 Billion at the Worldwide Box Office This Weekend

7 February 2016 6:47 AM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is still flying high at the box office and passed two substantial milestones this past weekend as it continues to add to its impressive ticket sales haul.

On Friday, Star Wars: The Force Awakens earned an estimated $1.76 million at the domestic box office in North America. While that number might not seem earth shattering at first glance, the deposit pushed the film's domestic total to $900 million. No other film has ever reached $800 million, much less $900 million.

The big score came on Saturday when Star Wars: The Force Awakens became the third film in history to surpass $2 billion at the worldwide box office. The other two are James Cameron classics: Titanic and Avatar.

Despite the strong box office performance by Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it's unlikely that Titanic and Avatar will be threatened by its presence in the two billion-dollar club. The Force Awakens is »

The Week in Star Wars – The Force Awakens to hit $2 billion, Captain Phasma returning for Episode VIII, Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Kevin Smith talks Stormtrooper cameo and more

Pre-order Star Wars: The Force Awakens via Amazon UK or Amazon Us

In this edition of The Week in Star Wars, we’ve got news on The Force Awakens reaching $2 billion, a confirmation of a returning character for Episode VIII, an announcement for Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Kevin Smith talking his Stormtrooper cameo and more…

Our top story this week surrounds the ambiguous Captain Phasma, played by Gwendoline Christie in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. While the character was featured heavily in the marketing for the movie, the character didn’t end up doing a lot in the movie. Well, perhaps she’ll be given more to do in the Episode VIII, which the actor confirmed she would be appearing in this week. “I will be in the next Star Wars movie. I think that’s an exclusive, actually,” Christie said at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. She »

Oscar’S Year Of Visual Effects, and The Art Of Seeing And Believing

6 February 2016 9:16 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

If you have been living and routinely interacting with other human beings over the last month, you’ve probably heard one or two words involving this year’s Academy Awards and the heated controversy over the startling lack of both films and people of color among the nominees. Personally, I think that the real focus of concern ought to be less on the back end-- awards handed out for films which were financed and/or studio-approved, scheduled for production and filmed perhaps as much as two or three years ago-- and more on addressing the lack of cultural and intellectual and experiential diversity among those who have the power to make the decisions as to what films get made in the first place. This is no sure-fire way to ensure that there will be a richer and more consistent representation of diverse creative voices when it comes time for Hollywood »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens becomes the first movie to hit $900 million at the domestic box office

5 February 2016 1:13 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It had already taken the crown of the highest-grossing North American release of all time back in early January, and now after fifty days on screens Disney and Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens has become the first film in history to pass $900 million at the domestic box office.

“The film’s achievements are truly astounding, and it’s our great honor to relaunch this cinematic galaxy not only for all the devoted decades-long fans but for a new generation who will keep the Star Wars legacy alive for many years to come,” states Disney’s Alan Horn.

Worldwide, The Force Awakens is expected to become only the third film ever to reach $2 billion this Saturday after James Cameron’s Titanic ($2.18 billion) and Avatar ($2.78 billion).

Here's why 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' fell way short of 'Avatar's' box office record

5 February 2016 11:39 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The latest press release from Disney confirms once again the following irrefutable fact: Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a massive box office hit. But the numbers put forth today also confirm the predictions of the box office experts we surveyed several weeks ago: there's simply no way J.J. Abrams' franchise reboot can touch Avatar's worldwide record of more than $2.7 billion. It would take a great cynic indeed to sniff at these Star Wars numbers. The film is by far the domestic box-office champ, having now racked up over $900 million in North American receipts in its 50th day of release (Avatar made $749 million). It will also pass the $2 billion mark globally on Saturday. But it's still a whopping $700 million off from Avatar's worldwide take, thanks to a less-robust-than-expected performance in several key international markets including Russia, China and South Korea.  In Korea, for example, Avatar made over »

By comparison, former all-time champ Avatar stood at $612.7M at the same point in time in its domestic run; it… »

Nicolas Winding Refn Clarifies Reports That He Shot 'The Neon Demon' At 60fps

5 February 2016 6:25 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Last year, as production got underway on Nicolas Winding Refn's upcoming "The Neon Demon," Jena Malone posted a picture from the set that got fans of the director talking. It was a seemingly innocent shot of a clapperboard, except that it noted a framerate of 60fps. Speculation immediately started that Refn was following in the footsteps of Peter Jackson and James Cameron in creating hyper-real imagery for his horror picture, but it seems everything was a bit overblown. Read More: Interview: Nicolas Winding Refn Talks 'The Act Of Seeing,' Why There's No Sex In His Films, 'The Neon Demon,' And More During a Q&A last fall, the director was asked about the frame rate, and he explained what is being used for. “This is why I love the internet.

'Titanic' Shocker! Jack Could Have Lived, Admits Kate Winslet

3 February 2016 1:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Please note: this post includes a major spoiler about the conclusion of 1997's Titanic. Originally slated for theatrical release in the summer of 1997, James Cameron's Titanic was a tremendous risk at the time. Thanks to the global success of Aliens, Terminator 2: Judgment Day and True Lies, Cameron was known as an action director, so the prospect of him directing a romantic epic set on the doomed maiden voyage of the Rms Titanic in 1912 was surprising, to say the least. The shooting schedule was extended to more than five months in total and the budget reportedly expanded to about $200 million, making it the most expensive production in history. When Cameron realized that it would not be possible to finish the film in time for its scheduled release on July 2, it was...
