‘San Andreas’ Heads for $40 Million-Plus Opening, ‘Aloha’ Eyes $12 Million

2 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Dwayne Johnson’s disaster drama “San Andreas” is anything but a disaster, dominating moviegoing at the U.S. box office with early projections showing a $40 million-plus opening weekend.

The opening of Sony’s “Aloha” is likely to finish the frame at around $12 million, or the mid-range of recent forecasts that have been tamped down as negative buzz surrounds the rom-com — despite the star power of Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams.

San Andreas” showed respectable drawing power with $3.1 million in latenight shows Thursday, while “Aloha” arrived with a meek $500,000 at 2,275 locations in preview showings. Early Friday estimates showed a $16 million opening day for “San Andreas,” which is playing at 3,777 locations, and a Friday total of $4.5 million for “Aloha” at 2,815 site.

Warner Bros.’ 3D “San Andreas” is arriving with an easy-to-understand premise — a mega-earthquake and aftershock clobber California, forcing Johnson’s helicopter pilot character to scramble to rescue his daughter, »

Amal Clooney's Stylist Revealed—And Just Wait Until You Find Out Who It Is!

5 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Does Amal Clooney have a secret stylist? According to Yahoo! the answer is—gasp!—yes. Reportedly George Clooney's wife has been working with stylist Alexis Roche, who—and here's the kicker—is John Galliano's longtime partner. You, of course, remember Galliano, the designer who fell from fashion grace after making anti-Semitic and racist remarks in 2011. Cut to present day, where after a long apology tour (which is still going on) we've seen him making a comeback of sorts in his new position at Maison Margiela. Even Anna Wintour has seemingly forgiven him. But here's the thing: Amal has only worked with Roche when she was wearing Galliano's Maison Margiela »

Martha Thomases: Look Out, Here Comes Tomorrow

10 hours ago | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Tomorrowland didn’t do as well as expected this weekend in theaters.  Some people celebrated this fact, apparently believing that the movie was the brainchild of George Clooney and that it was a propaganda film about climate change.

They must have seen a different movie than I did.

I’ll admit that, like the Big Hollywood website, I went to the theater with my own set of assumptions and biases.  Tomorrowland is my favorite area in the Disney parks, the first place I wanted to go the first time I went (in 1979).  I love the work of director Brad Bird, and have since The Family Dog

And, yeah, I have the hots for George Clooney and I think climate change is an issue deserving action.  Only the first of those affects my ticket-buying decisions.

So, the Disney nerd in me loved the movie.  But, more important to this column, so did the comics fan. »

‘Tomorrowland’ gets Shazam’ed

11 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Despite a mixed reception and a less-than-futuristic box office performance so far, Disney’s Tomorrowland is leading the way in mobile applications.

Perhaps unusually for a movie with a retro sci-fi theme, the print campaign for George Clooney‘s gadget-fest is the first to utilize Shazam’s new visual recognition software, which operates through your camera phone. It’s been in operation as an audio-based system up to now.

Aiming your lens at the poster allows the device to access interactive Tomorrowland content and advertising-based material in what sounds like a pocket-sized riff on Minority Report. Brad Bird‘s action adventure has been branded  “Shazamable” as a result!

The pioneering company (based in the UK) have also struck a deal with the music arm of Uncle Walt’s digital empire. Other corporate entities are involved, with perhaps the most exciting being Warner Bros and their forthcoming Batman: Arkham Knight game release. »

George Clooney Doesn't Think Men Should Get Plastic Surgery: "It Makes You Look Older"

13 hours ago | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Silver fox for life! George Clooney thinks everyone should accept aging and work with what they’ve got. During an interview with BBC’s Radio 4, the Tomorrowland actor, 54, revealed he’s against men getting plastic surgery because it only makes them look older. "Clearly, I haven't. For me, it isn't an issue or an option,” the hunk said when asked about dying his hair or contemplating going under the knife. “I don't think it would make much sense, quite honestly…I’ve seen it happen and…particularly on men, I don't [...] »

George Clooney Will Stay Gray, Thank You: Dyeing Your Hair or Having Plastic Surgery Makes Men Look Older

28 May 2015 2:57 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Seriously, why mess with silver-fox perfection? But still, George Clooney fields questions about why he doesn't dye his hair, which has been gray for over a decade now. And his answer, like so many of his answers, makes sense. "Not today, I'm not," the Tomorrowland star actually joked right off the bat when asked about the process of "aging gracefully." "I will say that there's nothing fun—and I know for actresses it's infinitely worse because of public perception based on nothing except studios not hiring them and those sorts of things—but I think for all of us, you have to come to terms with getting older and not trying to fight it," Clooney told the »

George Clooney Is "Very Proud" to Be Married to a "Very Strong" Woman

28 May 2015 11:05 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

George Clooney hasn't shied away from gushing about Amal since they got married in September 2014, and he was still talking about his gorgeous wife as he made the press rounds for Tomorrowland. In a radio interview with BBC's Jenni Murray last week, he responded to the question of having children with a simple, "I don't know," but had plenty to say about his "very strong" wife, whom he said he's "very proud to be married" to. Read on for quotes. On Amal: "She's someone that I enjoy spending every minute of the day with and I'm very proud to be around, watching the things that she does I admire so greatly. I've always been involved in things other than this business long before I was successful at it, but she's been doing it kind of quietly and unheralded for a long, long period of time."

Box Office Democracy: Tomorrowland

28 May 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

It’s profoundly irritating just how lifeless Tomorrowland is. I’m not even talking about how in the grand climax there was clearly no budget for extras so it just seems like three people fighting in a bunch of cavernous empty sets. I mean that one of the biggest movie stars of a generation joined forces with a director that could seemingly do no wrong and they made a movie that always seems like the next scene is the one where things are finally going to kick in to high gear, but instead it just sits in neutral and slowly sinks in to the mud. Tomorrowland is a promise of a future never fulfilled and I wish I could believe that was a really deep metaphor and not a punchless script.

There’s one really fantastic sequence in Tomorrowland set in the 1964 World’s Fair with a young boy presenting »

Jason Reitman to adapt The Adventures Of Beekle for DreamWorks Animation

28 May 2015 7:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jason Reitman’s next directorial effort has been announced and it’s going to be a DreamWorks Animation adaptation of the book The Adventures Of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend. This is the first project developed since DreamWorks Animations’ restructuring and looks to be Reitman’s feature followup to 2014’s Men, Women & Children.

The Adventures Of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend was written and illustrated by The New York Times bestselling author Dan Santat, and subsequently named 2015’s “most distinguished American picture book for children,” thus being awarded the Caldecott Medal. According to Deadline, the newly announced adaptation will be written and directed by Reitman and overseen by Dwa development exec Damon Ross and Head of Development Gregg Taylor.

The story follows an imaginary friend, born far away on an unknown island. He waits patiently for a real child to choose him but is continually overlooked and eventually decides to take control of his own fate. »

In Defense of Tomorrowland

27 May 2015 3:56 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Things are not looking good for Tomorrowland. With critics currently divided at a 50/50 dead heat on Rotten Tomatoes and opening weekend box office numbers disappointingly low, it looks like Tomorrowland is set to be labeled as a failure in the absence of serious legs or a major international turnout. And that's a damn shame. This is not the fate Brad Bird's ode to optimism deserves. Let’s be very clear about something from the get-go. Tomorrowland is a flawed film, but since when does being flawed mean something isn’t beautiful? Tomorrowland opens with grizzled grumpypants Frank Walker (George Clooney) recalling splendid visions of the future from his childhood, “When I was a kid, the future was different,” he tells us as the scene transitions to the 1964 World Fair where we see his younger self (Thomas Robinson) enthusiastically lugging his handcrafted jetpack for consideration. While the haughty judge (Hugh Laurie) is unimpressed, »

Destroy All Monsters: The Problem With The Tomorrowland Thesis

27 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

I enjoyed Tomorrowland. There was a joy about the way Brad Bird shot the film that reminded me of early Spielberg, and if the whole thing ends up turning on the audience's willingness to believe that George Clooney has harboured a crush (and therefore a grudge) on a ninja robot in the body of a 12-year-old girl for his entire adult life, well, Raffey Cassidy was excellent as the robot. The film exists somewhere on the salt flats between "earnest" and "preachy," and has been receiving fire for it. There's a unique pop cultural thesis at the center of it all: Tomorrowland proposes that our elaborate fixation upon doomsday scenarios in our media - Fury Road last week andSan Andreas next, as many critics have...

Pitch Perfect 2 and Mad Max: Fury Road continue UK box office domination

27 May 2015 7:19 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

George Clooney’s Tomorrowland fails to budge Anna Kendrick and Tom Hardy from the top while François Ozon’s latest opens well

The photo finish

Pitch Perfect 2 held on to the top spot over Friday, Saturday and Sunday, beating Mad Max: Fury Road by a narrow margin (£2.67m against £2.64m). But take Bank Holiday Monday into consideration, and over the four days Fury Road pipped Pitch Perfect 2, with £3.49m against £3.48m. The cumulative totals put Pitch Perfect 2 modestly in front (£10.59m against £10.54m), though it’s worth noting that Fury Road was released one day earlier.

Tomorrowland's flop recalls past Disney disaster movies

27 May 2015 5:09 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In this week’s round-up of the global box office scene:

• Slow start for $180m fantasia casts doubt over George Clooney’s star leverage

• Aamir Khan’s Pk sets new Bollywood high in China

Pitch Perfect 2 star Anna Kendrick in harmony with film-musicals revival

Still no serious competition for Marvel’s superhero partypack Avengers: Age of Ultron, with Tomorrowland flopping (see below) and Mad Max: Fury Road – perhaps because of its adult rating – not comporting itself exactly like a global blockbuster. Ultron hasn’t had the seismic Us box-office impact of the first film, but has been holding well for a CGI action spectacle nonetheless: it dropped a commendable 46.1% on this particular frame, benefiting from the Memorial Day crowd who weren’t fired up by Tomorrowland. A take of $1.27bn (£849m) sees it in sixth place on the all-time list, just below Frozen, and it’s not running on empty just yet: Japan, »

Tom Ford's Nocturnal Animals lost producers George Clooney and Grant Heslov, said to be due to scheduling conflicts, but landed a $20 million worldwide distribution pact with Focus and Universal in one of Cannes' biggest deals.

Here's all the awesome stuff leaving Netflix in June

26 May 2015 5:24 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Silence of the Lambs" This is definitely my favorite Best Picture-winning horror movie featuring Chris Isaak in a supporting role. Let's just think about the glamor of 1991 for a minute: "Point Break" occurred. Kate Nelligan was in whatever movie she wanted. CeCe Peniston was a reigning pop star, which is important because her last name has "penis" in it. And "Silence of the Lambs" was an ominous and unconventional movie that everyone agreed was fantastic. Anthony Hopkins is in "Silence of the Lambs" for less than 20 minutes but his performance lingers far after the credits roll. Jodie Foster is charismatic and august as Clarice Starling, who is no mood for fava beans by the time the movie is over. "Rain Man" I keep pretending I'm incapable of enjoying Tom Cruise in movies anymore, yet "Rain Man" is about as timeless and likable as a 1988 drama is allowed to be. »

‘Tomorrowland’ Sputters in First Day at China Box Office

Disney’s sci-fi adventure film “Tomorrowland” is off to a slow start in China, with early Tuesday numbers pointing to a box office debut of less $3 million. “Tomorrowland,” starring George Clooney, Hugh Laurie and Britt Robertson, topped the Memorial Day box office domestically over the weekend, but its four-day haul of $41 million was below the expectations of analysts and less than the studio had hoped for. “Tomorrowland” will take in $2.6 million in its first day of release in China, according to projections from Chinese tracking service Entgroup posted by BoxOffice.com. By comparison, “Fast and Furious 7” took in a. »
