Social Media Buzz: ‘Lucy’ to Out Muscle ‘Hercules’ at the Box Office

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

Does digital data offer indicators that can be used to monitor marketing effectiveness and predict box office success even before awareness turns into intent? We analyzed this weekend’s new movies across Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Google (the methodology behind the numbers is laid out in the appendix below) over the seven days leading up to their release, when marketing campaigns should be at their peak.

Hercules

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson faces off against two foes as Hercules: Scarlett Johansson goes one-on-one with The Great One as ass-kicking sci-fi star “Lucy” and Kellen Lutz, who played the same role in “Legend of Hercules” earlier this year. The “Twilight” favorite fought his way to an $8.8 million opening. It seems certain that WWE’s most electrifying man in all of entertainment will win the “Hercules” battle, but who will win this weekend’s war?

The Atlas-sian shoulders of Johnson have carried the weight of the marketing campaign. »

A Guide To Every Philip Seymour Hoffman Movie Streaming on Netflix

11 hours ago | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

It’s been nearly six months since Philip Seymour Hoffman died of a heroin overdose, and yet his presence is still heavily felt throughout Hollywood. In addition to a lengthy and acclaimed filmography, the Academy Award winner kept up a busy work schedule until the time of his death. He had three films slated for 2014 release: John Slattery‘s directorial debut, God’s Pocket, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, and A Most Wanted Man. With the latter hitting theaters today, we thought we’d give you a look every Psh film currently available for your streaming pleasure. Whether as cynical music writer Lester Bangs in Almost Famous or hopelessly lonely boom mic operator Scott J. in Boogie Nights, Hoffman managed to steal the scene in each one of his films. If you have a Netflix account, log in and get caught up on some of the greatest performances in the last 20 years. »

‘Star Wars,’ ‘Superman’ Inspire New ‘Avengers’ Score

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

Composer Brian Tyler’s score for Marvel’s “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” will try to pay homage to the music of films like “Star Wars,” “Superman” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”

Those films “changed the game,” the composer said during the Musical Anatomy of a Superhero panel at Comic-Con on Thursday in San Diego. “It’s the template for ‘The Avengers’ coming up.”

That’s good news for fans of superhero movie music who have seen a bi-polar split between the serious sound of more recent Batman and Superman movies at DC and the triumphant and bombastic sounds of Marvel’s films.

“Marvel’s vibe is more old school, more heroic,” said Tyler Bates (“Guardians of the Galaxy”). “DC seems darker, post-apocalyptic.”

John Ottman, who recently scored “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” said the now-classic “Superman” and “Batman” scores by John Williams and Danny Elfman served as a “resurrection of the film score. »

5 Sexy Secrets from the ‘Fifty Shades’ Trailer

24 July 2014 6:56 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Helicopters! Elevators! Beds! Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele travel to such erotic venues in the first trailer for “Fifty Shades of Grey,” which Universal Studios unveiled on “Today” on Thursday morning. Here are five things we learned about the film, which opens on Valentine’s Day 2015.

(1) Jamie Dornan > Charlie Hunnam. There was pandemonium when Hunnam suddenly bailed on playing Christian Grey last fall, but it might have been a blessing in disguise for Universal. Hunnam looked disheveled when he recently appeared at TCA, to promote his TV series “Sons of Anarchy.” On the other hand, Jamie Dornan, a former male model, makes for a more plausible kinky businessman. He seems to be interpreting the role as a cross between Robert Pattinson in “Twilight” and Tom Cruise circa “Eyes Wide Shut.” This could work. And his abs, which are briefly on display, earn an A+, according to our panel of experts. »

Fab Films to look out for in the rest of 2014

23 July 2014 10:01 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

More than half of 2014 has past and many of the most awaited films of the year have already been released, with more or less success in the box office. But there are many months left until the end of the year and B-town is finalizing a bunch of new films to entertain the audience.

Here’s a selection of films to be released during the rest of 2014:

Kick

Producer Sajid Nadiadwala’s directorial debut is the major release of this year’s Eid, which features Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Randeep Hooda and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead roles. The remake of a Telugu film of the same name, Kick tells the story of Devi (Khan), a man who lives only for his ‘Kick’ aka an adrenaline rush, and who will eventually become a thief. He will come across several characters, such as Shaina (Fernandez), who will become his love interest, »

Bang Bang Teaser Gives You Abs, Explosions, And Footjets(?) Aplenty!

23 July 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Fox Star Studios in India gave us what could turn out to be the most ridiculous teaser of 2014 today with the first footage from Siddarth Anand's Bang Bang! The film is an official remake of the Tom Cruise/Cameron Diaz film Knight and Day, which is remarkable in that they actually bothered to get remake rights for a film. Headlining Bang Bang are Hrithik Roshan, who has proven his action chops in films like Dhoom 2, and Katrina Kaif, on whom a Barbie doll is based. Director Anand has a couple of solid Bollywood rom-coms under his belt with Bacchna Ae Haseeno and Salaam Namaste, however, his action skills are as yet untested unless you count his "cars turning left" opus, Ta Ra Rum Pum....

Warner Bros. Picks Up 'Arabian Nights' 7-Movie Franchise

23 July 2014 2:51 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. has acquired a 90-page "script-ment" from new writer David Weil that lays out a massive seven-movie franchise based on the inter-connected stories from The Arabian Nights.

The writer's vision is to re-imagine these classic stories, which are in the public domain, as period tales that have modern themes for a big-budget CGI fantasy adventure tentpole. The "script-ment" is essentially a bible for what David Weil sees as a long-running franchise.

3 Arts, the production company run by producer Erwin Stoff, represents the writer and brought the project to Warner Bros., where they collaborated on numerous projects including the sci-fi thriller Edge of Tomorrow starring Tom Cruise.

The Arabian Nights, a.k.a. One Thousand and One Nights, dates back centuries ago, with the first English-language version published in 1706. The Arabian Nights is a compilation of numerous folks stories from ancient Arabic, Persian, Indian, Egyptian and Mesopotamian folklore.

New Trailer For Hector And The Search For Happiness

22 July 2014 2:17 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

A clever penis joke. We’re sold. The latest trailer for Simon Pegg’s Hector And The Search For Happiness has joyfully flown into our inbox via digital carrier birdy. You can check it out below, but be warned, it’s got an awesome cast and may well make you feel all warm and sticky on the inside (more than usual anyway). While some of you may be thinking “Walter Mitty” I’d hope it’s got more depth to it than Ben Stillers, somewhat good, but overall bland mental outing of late. As great as Simon Pegg is playing off the likes of Tom Cruise and Chris Pine in big blockbusters, these “smaller” movies seem to really like the actor. Starring alongside Pegg are Toni Collette, Rosamund Pike, Stellan Skarsgård, Jean Reno and Christopher Plummer. Something like this is a welcome change of scenery from giant robots punching the »

Edge Of Tomorrow Scribe To Write Akira Adaptation

22 July 2014 9:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Looks like we weren’t the only ones impressed by Edge of Tomorrow. Recently, it was revealed that Dante Harper, the first screenwriter to work on the Tom Cruise sci-fi action-adventure, has been hired by Warner Bros. to pen the script for a live-action Akira adaptation.

The troubled project currently has Non-Stop director Jaume Collet-Serra set to helm, who previously said he’d backed away from the adaptation over concerns with the script. Evidently, Warner Bros. is still invested in moving Akira forward, and the studio has opted to stump up the cash to hire a red-hot writer to do just that. Edge of Tomorrow was a terrific, extremely well-written film, so I’m hopeful that Harper has what it takes to finally get this project off the ground.

Just looking at Akira, it’s easy to see why Warner Bros. has struggled in getting it past early development stages. »

When grieving 18th century mortal Louis (Brad Pitt, 12 Years A Slave, World War Z) accepts an offer of everlasting life from charismatic vampire Lestat (Tom Cruise, Edge of Tomorrow, Jack Reacher), he quickly realizes that his dark gift is also a curse that requires him to kill to survive. An eternity of blood, lust and torment awaits in this thrilling and visually stunning film that redefined the vampire genre.

'Akira' Lives With New Writer On Board Live Action Reboot

22 July 2014 6:39 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

By the time the Tom Cruise-starring “Edge of Tomorrow” will likely clear the $100 million domestic box office threshold, it will have been in theaters for two months. Yet despite the underperformance stateside, the film is doing very well overseas with grosses adding up to $261 million. The international box office—which is responsible for nearly 3/4 of the film’s worldwide haul—may explain why Warner Bros. is looking at one of the writers of the Doug Liman-helmed film to take a crack at another beloved Japanese property. Deadline reports that Dante Harper has been tapped by the studio to write a new draft of the long-gestating remake of “Akira.” It’s interesting to note that Harper doesn’t have an official writer’s credit on “Edge of Tomorrow”—or any official writing credits—as a trio of other writers were awarded the credit instead. As for the movie, it's »

Downey, Hemsworth On Richest Actors List

21 July 2014 3:44 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The annual list of top earning actors published by Forbes magazine has come out for 2014 with Robert Downey Jr. heading up the list again. Downey took home approximately $75 million over the past financial year, two-thirds of which were backend profits from "The Avengers".

There was some surprising additions that show that young Hollywood is making bank on films despite claims these actors don't command the kinds of salaries that older stars (ala Tom Cruise, Denzel Washington, even Will Smith) do. Downey's fellow Marvel star Chris Hemsworth made it into fifth place with $37 million, "Hangover" star Bradley Cooper nabbed a very impressive $46 million, and both the former (Christian Bale) and current (Ben Affleck) Batman tied for seventh and eighth with $35 million apiece. Here's the Top 10:

1 - Robert Downey Jr - $75 million

2 - Dwayne Johnson - $52 million

3 - Bradley Cooper - $46 million

4 - Leonardo DiCaprio - $39 million

5 - Chris Hemsworth - »
