D'Angelo Brings #BlackLivesMatter to SNL

2 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

D'Angelo performed two songs off his surprise comeback album Black Messiah "Really Love" and "The Charade" on the this week's J.K. Simmons-hosted SNL. For the latter, D'Angelo came out wearing a black hoodie while his band, the Vanguard, was clad in black t-shirts emblazoned with the phrases "Black Lives Matter" and "I Can't Breathe" — slogans of a national response to the deaths of Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, and others. In the chorus, he sings: "All we wanted was a chance to talk / 'Stead we only got outlined in chalk / Feet have bled a million miles we've walked / Revealing at the end of the day, the charade." Here's his performance of "Really Love," with D'Angelo looking like a high fashion version of Clint Eastwood circa The Good, The Bad, The Ugly. »

Weekend Box Office: ‘American Sniper’ Nears $250 Million At Home, ‘The Hobbit’ Surpasses $900 Million Worldwide

2 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Flashback to summer 2014: most pundits ask if Clint Eastwood has lost his touch after “Jersey Boys” tanks at the box-office. Fast forward to present day and Eastwood has the 6th highest grossing film in the U.S. for 2014 grosses and counting. The unexpected box-office behemoth that is “American Sniper” is probably last year’s biggest unlikely hit and now it’s about $1.1 million away from the $250 million mark. In its third week of wide release, ‘Sniper’ grossed another whopping $31 million. When was the last time a film did that? To put it in perspective, the #1 and #2 highest grossing films of the year, tentpoles “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1” and “Guardians Of The Galaxy,” pulled in $22 and $25 million in their third weeks of release respectively. While Eastwood’s war drama fell 50.7% this weekend from last, clearly it’s only putting a small dent in its box-office domination. Looks like »

Box Office: 'American Sniper' is super at no. 1 as 'Game of Thrones' slays in IMAX

5 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Clint Eastwood's "American Sniper" contented to dominate the box office over Super Bowl weekend, but the bigger story appears to be an unexpected tight race for the no. 2 and no. 3 spots between "Paddington" and "Project Almanac."  First, let's see how the no. 1 movie in America contented to perform. "Sniper" took in another $31.8 million over the three day for a new overall total of $248.9 million. It was down just 50% from the weekend before and is now the fifth highest grossing R-rated movie of all-time.  By the time it passes the $300 million mark later this month it will the second highest behind "Passion of the Christ's" $370 million.  The Best Picture nominee's run at the top of the box office will likely end this upcoming weekend, however, when "The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water" and "Jupiter Ascending" hit theaters. The battle for the second slot was much more intriguing.  Coming off an expected Saturday matinee bump, »

‘American Sniper’ Breaks Super Bowl Weekend Record With $31.85M – Sunday Box Office Final

6 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Final Update, Sunday 9:45 Am (after 8 Am update): “I wish there was a universe where American Sniper wasn’t in it!” one distribution exec cried this morning after their movie came up short this weekend. “I actually like this universe we’re living in!” beamed Warner Bros’ distribution Evp Jeff Goldstein over the third wide weekend of impressive results for Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper.

The Village Roadshow co-production made a box office touchdown as the highest-grossing film ever over Super Bowl weekend with $31.85M.

American Sniper is expected to eclipse Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best Of Both Worlds Concert‘s first weekend of $31.12M, the previous title to mint »

American Sniper Tops Us Box Office Again

7 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

This past weekend can sometimes be a tough one for films in the States, as the Super Bowl eats up audiences on the Sunday that might otherwise be tempted out to the cinema. Still, that was clearly no challenge for American Sniper, which is continuing to break records and gross lots of money. The Bradley Cooper film earned $31.8 million, a new record for the Super Bowl weekend and is past $248.9 million in the States alone, according to studio estimates.Clint Eastwood’s latest is looking like a possible challenger for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 as the highest-grossing film of 2014 and has snuck past The Matrix Reloaded to take the position as second-biggest R-rated release in Us history. The rest of the charts, a mixture of newcomers and current releases, had a tough time in its wake though Paddington is proving to be an appealing family film, adding $8.505 million »

Box Office Report: American Sniper Breaks Super Bowl Record

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

It was another explosive weekend for American Sniper, which broke the record for the biggest Super Bowl weekend at the box office in its third week of wide release. Earning an estimated $31.9 million, Clint Eastwood’s Oscar-nominated drama continued to steamroll over the competition, including several wide releases that flopped or fizzled this weekend. Even with a strong take, the film dipped a bigger-than-expected 51% in its third frame, a bit worrying given the strong 28% hold that American Sniper has last week.

With an astounding $248.9 million take so far, American Sniper is already the fifth-highest grossing R-rated film of all-time. It is also a few days away from surpassing The Hangover Part II ($254.5 million), which also starred Bradley Cooper, to take fourth place on that chart. (Fun fact: Three of the five highest-grossing R-rated movies of all time in North America have Cooper in the lead role.) Beyond the Super Bowl record, »

Box Office: ‘American Sniper’ Sets Super Bowl Weekend Record With $31.8 Million

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

American Sniper” is nearing the $250 million mark after picking up $31.8 million to set a new Super Bowl weekend record.

The previous high-water mark for football’s big weekend was “Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour,” which nabbed $31.2 million when it premiered in 2008.

If it continues on this torrid clip, Clint Eastwood’s biopic of Navy Seal Chris Kyle could challenge “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1″ as the highest-grossing 2014 release and will pass “The Matrix Reloaded” to become the second-biggest R-rated release in history. It has earned $248.9 million — an unbelievable result for an adult drama about such hard-hitting topics as war and its psychological effects.

“These are superhero movie numbers,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak. “People are hearing about this movie, talking about it and I imagine it’s leading them to see it multiple times to get to these type of numbers. »

Weekend Box Office: 'American Sniper' Breaks Super Bowl Record

11 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Jake Coyle, AP Film Writer

New York (AP) - "American Sniper" has shot down another box-office record: Its $31.9 million is the biggest Super Bowl weekend gross ever.

According to studio estimates Sunday, the Clint Eastwood film narrowly surpassed the previous top Super Bowl weekend draw. The concert film "Hanna Montana/Miley Cyrus: The Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour" earned $31.1 million earned in 2008.

Hollywood often avoids competing with the Super Bowl, but "American Sniper" has proven an unlikely sensation. It has now made $248.9 million in six weeks, making it the most lucrative war movie without adjusting for inflation.

The competition was thin. The animated adaptation "Paddington" came in a distant second with $8.5 million, in a virtual tie with Paramount's found-footage thriller "Project Almanac."

Kevin Costner's "Black or White" opened in fourth with $6.5 million. »

‘American Sniper’s Oscar-Nominated Writer Answers Controversies — Michelle Obama Praises Film

22 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Lots of talk today about the controversy behind American Sniper during a screenwriters panel featuring seven Oscar nominees at the 30th Santa Barbara International Film Festival. The key points in that regard were powerfully made by Sniper’s Academy Award and WGA-nominated writer, Jason Hall who succinctly described his film as the story of Chris Kyle, veteran of four tours of duty in Iraq as a soldier who was “back home, but not back”.  He added that Kyle suffered from Post Traumatic Stress after finding himself in a war where he reportedly did over 160 kills, the largest number in U.S. military history.

I have long described Hall’s script and director Clint Eastwood’s film  as less a war movie  and more, the story of a warrior who finds himself balancing love for family with love for country.  No less than Jane Fonda tweeted praise after seeing the film »

Box Office: ‘Game of Thrones’ Eyes $2 Million in Imax Debut

31 January 2015 1:22 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Game of Thrones” has reached all-screen domination.

The show became the first TV series to hit the bigscreen when it opened Friday to $686,000 at the U.S. box office. The fantasy series stands to earn almost $2 million from 205 Imax screens this weekend, bringing its per-screen average to a weekend high of $9,800.

This weekend’s No. 1 film, Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper,” is aiming for a much lower but still impressive per-screen average of $7,695. “American Sniper,” however, has been in theaters since Christmas Day and went wide three weekends ago.

Update:

Warner Bros. has a more modest weekend estimate between $1.3 million and $1.5 million, considering the unpredictability of Sunday’s earnings. That would lower the per-screen average to $6,341 to $7,317, respectably.

And given the show’s nature as seven-day alternative content that has already aired on TV, the studio doesn’t expect the Imax-only exhibition to behave like a traditional theatrical release, which drastically alters the math equation. »

Box Office: 'American Sniper' still no. 1 on Friday, but for how much longer?

31 January 2015 10:50 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Superbowl weekend can often be slow at the box office. Especially since most of America is in front of their TV sets all day on Sunday.  Many studios have tried to counter program with female or teen themed films, but it rarely works.  One movie studio, Warner Bros., won't be ignoring the returns this year because they have "American Sniper" on their team. Clint Eastwood's Oscar-nominated blockbuster took in another $10 million on Friday for a $227.1 million overall come that was mostly earned over 15 days of wide release. The Super Bowl does make three-day projections difficult, but "Sniper" should clear at least $28-30 million over the frame with a final tally of $300 million plus a given at this point. It will easily be no. 1 for a third straight weekend, but beyond that? "Jupiter Ascending" and "The Spongebob Movie: A Sponge Out of Water" have a shot at taking the top spot next weekend. »
