Black Panther Is Biggest Superhero Movie of All Time in the U.S.

Black Panther Is Biggest Superhero Movie of All Time in the U.S.
While Black Panther was finally dethroned from the top spot at the box office this weekend by Pacific Rim 2, it hasn't stopped the Marvel movie from becoming the highest grossing superhero movie in North American box office history. By the end of the weekend Black Panther will have surpassed the first Avengers movie and even Lucasfilm's The Last Jedi, becoming the 5th highest grossing movie of all time domestically. Nobody predicted that Ryan Coogler's first gig with Marvel Studios was going to be the record breaking monster that it has become.

Black Panther has earned $618,644,236 thus far while the Avengers earned $623,357,910 during its initial theatrical run. Additionally, The Last Jedi did $619,896,809, which means that Black Panther has now already passed the Star Wars movie with its sights set on the Avengers, which it will easily take down by Sunday. The Marvel movie was able to pull off 5 straight

Alien & Aliens Get Thrilling Modern-Style Trailers

Ridley Scott’s Alien and James Cameron’s Aliens just got brand new, modernized trailers… for no reason at all. Scott’s original 1979 Alien film – based on a script by Dan O’Bannon and a story by O’Bannon and Ronald Shusett – is widely considered one of the greatest science fiction movies of all-time, and its success spawned an everlasting franchise that continues to this day. But before it became a franchise, Alien received a sequel a few years after its release.

Pacific Rim Uprising Projected To End Black Panther’s Box Office Reign

It looks like Pacific Rim Uprising will be the film to knock Black Panther off the top position on the box office charts this weekend. Ever since Ryan Coogler’s entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe premiered a month ago, it’s dominated the marketplace thanks to its strong word-of-mouth and weak competition. Eclipsing even the rosiest expectations, Black Panther is one of the highest-grossing films of all-time and became the first movie since James Cameron’s Avatar to maintain the #1 spot for five consecutive weekends. Simply put, it’s been a phenomenon.

The Best #StupidQuestionsAboutMovies on Twitter: 'Why Wasn't There a Sequel to Titanic?'

They say there’s no such thing as a stupid question, but these just may qualify.

#StupidQuestionsAboutMovies was the subject the @SotallyToberHTs and @HashtagRoundup‘s Twitter challenge on Wednesday, and social media fanatics responded — so much that it became a trending topic hours later.

James Cameron’s 1997 epic Titanic has been the center of at least one major controversy over the years — Jack totally could have fit on that headboard, despite what the movie’s stars say — and it also spurred some dumb queries on Twitter.

“Why wasn’t there a sequel to Titanic?” asked one participant, while another absentmindedly questioned,

Robert Rodriguez: The $7,000 Movie Is Now Reality TV on ‘Rebel Without a Crew’

Robert Rodriguez: The $7,000 Movie Is Now Reality TV on ‘Rebel Without a Crew’
Before Robert Rodriguez created the El Rey Network in 2013, he came up with the contest: He would task burgeoning filmmakers with executing their first features in two weeks for just $7,000, the same limitations that produced his storied debut. (Said Rodriguez: “I thought no one was going to see it; that’s why I spent so little.”) “El Mariachi” secured Columbia Pictures distribution and the Guinness World Record for lowest-budget flick to earn more than $1 million (the same amount the studio reportedly spent on its marketing).

For the film’s quarter-century anniversary, Rodriguez made the competition a reality: Borrowing its name from Rodriguez’s 1995 memoir, “Rebel Without a Crew” began streaming March 19 on go90. He handpicked five directors (who include three women) from a capped pool of more than 2,000 applicants.

Each contestant had directed only shorts and possessed a completed feature script (or said they did). Rodriguez flew them and their on-set plus-ones into Austin,

Black Panther Tops Box Office For Fifth Consecutive Week, Ties With Avatar’s Record

Not since the release of James Cameron’s Avatar has a box office titan had the same staying power as Black Panther.

This past weekend, Marvel’s Afrocentric blockbuster was crowned king of the box office (and for the fifth week on the trot, no less) with $27 million, taking its domestic haul to $605.4 million for a worldwide total north of $1.1 billion.

That figure was enough to see off competition from the rebooted Tomb Raider, which scooped up around $23.5 million in ticket sales across North America. To its credit, the Alicia Vikander-fronted adventure film was #1 overseas, and Black Panther has been blazing a trail of its own straight into the Hollywood history books, so this record is merely the latest to be added to Wakanda’s trophy cabinet.

As a matter of fact, the latest time a film retained total control of the domestic box office for five consecutive weeks was Avatar.

Where do the most recent group of Academy Award winners rank all time?

As we begin to fully focus on 2018 releases and eventually what the 2019 awards season will be like, a little more about the most recent Oscars is still required. Mainly, a look at how the winners stack up with previous ones. This time around, I’m tying in all of the major categories together. Yes, all eight of the top prizes will get a rundown today, with the possibility of another piece next week on the technical categories. For now, it’s Picture, Director, the four Acting slots, and both Screenplay categories, which is more than enough to start with. This is going to be fun. Like I mentioned above, before we get to Best Picture, which is clearly the big one, quickly I’d like to run down some of the other categories and how they stack up. That way, it’s more of a broader collection. Obviously, we know

‘Terminator’ Reboot Casts Mackenzie Davis; Shoots This Summer

It’s been several years since we last saw a film in The Terminator franchise with 2015’s abysmal Terminator Genesys. Although that film effectively killed the franchise, we finally have hope for a return to greatness for the franchise with the yet to be titled Pseudo-sequel/ reboot. The film is set to be produced by James Cameron, who is closely overseeing the writing process, with Deadpool director Tim Miller currently set for the director’s chair. The film is also been said to ignore everything after Terminator 2: Judgement Day, and will be a direct continuation of that film, bringing back stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton. Other than this, we haven’t heard much about the film in the past few months.

Now Variety (via Collider) is reporting that Mackenzie Davis has been added to the impending reboot of the Terminator franchise in a “key” role. Not only that,

Terminator 6 Receives Green Light, To Film This June

Thanks to the combined efforts of Tim Miller (Deadpool), James Cameron (Avatar) and Paramount Pictures, Skynet is currently being reprogrammed ahead of the forthcoming Terminator reboot.

Though it was originally expected to enter production this month, screenwriter Billy Ray has confirmed via Twitter that Miller’s franchise revival is now on course to begin filming in June (as expected), after the project finally received the green light from the studio earlier this week.

Not that anyone thought it would be placed back on the shelf, mind you, but until now, it technically wasn’t official. As such, it’s nice to get the confirmation from Billy and with production set for June, we imagine that casting will begin to heat up as Miller continues to put together the supporting players.

This time around, Cameron and Miller have reportedly settled on a female protagonist by the name of Dani Ramos, who

‘Alita: Battle Angel’: Robert Rodriguez and Jon Landau on Creating a Photo-Real Manga Character

Years ago, James Cameron was debating between making two projects: Avatar and Alita: Battle Angel. As we all know, he chose Avatar, which went on to become the highest-grossing movie in history and has led to the visionary director spending the last few years developing four sequels, the first of which is currently filming. While Alita: Battle Angel could have been left in the scrap pile of ideas and half-written scripts, never to see the light of day, the project had at least one person hungry to see it on movie screens: director Robert Rodriguez. One day, years …

Search and destroy: can James Cameron revive the Terminator by killing its past?

Is the original director’s plan to ignore the plots of the last three Terminator movies the way to revive the franchise for the next three films?

If only we had a time machine like the one used by Arnold Schwarzenegger’s menacing T-800 in 1984’s thrillingly bleak and minimalistic Terminator, the first and arguably best instalment in James Cameron’s sci-fi saga. We could travel forward to 2030 and find out whether Cameron’s plan to revive the ailing man v machines franchise ends up having any (hyper alloy endoskeleton) legs, or is doomed to be lowered further into searing molten steel.

Cameron announced last year that the only Sarah Connor who ever mattered (at least on the big screen), Linda Hamilton, will reprise the role for his return to the franchise, with the sixth Terminator film. And yes, Arnie will also be back, though that is now less likely
