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

12 hours ago | 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. »

'Sniper' Adds $10 Million, Three New Releases Flop on Friday

14 hours ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

American Sniper earned more than all three new releases combined on Friday, which sets it up to easily take first place for the third weekend in a row.The Clint Eastwood war drama added an estimated $10.02 million yesterday, which is off 45 percent from the prior week. Considering how well it held last weekend, that's a surprisingly steep drop; with the Super Bowl coming up on Sunday, Sniper now seems poised to fall around 50 percent over the full three-day weekend ($30 to $32 million).Through 15 days in wide release, American Sniper has earned $227.1 million. That ranks ninth among 2014 releases; by the end of the weekend, it will move up to sixth place ahead of Transformers: Age of Extinction.In second place, found footage time travel movie Project Almanac flopped with $3.2 million. In comparison, Chronicle, The Woman in Black and Warm Bodies all opened over $8 million on the Friday ahead of the Super Bowl. »

‘Sniper’ Still Blowing Away Competition; Eyes Super Bowl Record – Saturday Am Update

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

Update, Saturday,  8 Am: With studio-reported estimates after 12:30 Am post. Distrib chiefs earlier in the week spoke about how Friday and Saturday are the saving graces during Super Bowl weekend since most films are frontloaded on those two days. Well, Warner Bros./Village Roadshow’s American Sniper is the only film that continues to hook the masses and hammer the competition. Industry estimates had it at $9.9M last night, but Warner Bros. is calling Friday at $10M, with the rest of this weekend’s audience fractured across so-so choices at the multiplex. Current cume for American Sniper stands at $227.1M. The industry sees the Clint Eastwood film making double-digit gains on Saturday, and if the film clears $31.12M, it will be the biggest haul for a movie during the Big Game frame, beating the bow of 2008’s Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best Of Both Worlds Concert. Fandango continues to »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Lila and Eve’

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

When the cops don’t show enough interest in a drive-by shooting, a pair of grieving mothers take matters into their own hands in “Lila and Eve,” a vigilante thriller with a twist: Featuring an awards-caliber performance from Viola Davis and flavorful support from Jennifer Lopez (“Guess I’ll get my Tina on!” she barks, imagining her pop idol strong enough to smack back at an abusive Ike Turner), this gritty drama from Lifetime Films plays best on the bigscreen, which is how it premiered the second Friday of Sundance, though it’ll take some savvy positioning to draw its ideal audience of middle-aged women.

Add to that a younger contingent who don’t take J.Lo’s acting career all that seriously — those connoisseurs of camp who helped push “The Boy Next Door” to a nearly $15 million opening last weekend — and there’s a substantial audience out there for this cleverly conceived, »

Sundance: Jennifer Lopez and Viola Davis on Hollywood Diversity, TV Careers and ‘Lila & Eve’

30 January 2015 5:15 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This year’s Sundance Film Festival closes with “Lila & Eve,” a gritty crime drama starring Jennifer Lopez and Viola Davis as two moms who lose their children to crime, and take vigilantism into their own hands. The two actresses, who first worked together on 1998’s “Out of Sight,” share other common ground. Both of the leading ladies juggle television (Lopez on “American Idol,” Davis on “How to Get Away With Murder”) with film careers. They talked to Variety separately by phone this week about their new movie, diversity in Hollywood and why it’s still so hard to get financing for a project with two female leads.

Viola, when did you first meet Jennifer?

Davis: “Out of Sight” was my second film. I was so excited — I thought, “I’ve made it. I’m going to be a star.” I only had three days on it, but we clicked immediately. »

Jennifer Lopez on her bleak new role - and why 'Boy Next Door's' success meant so much

30 January 2015 4:50 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Lila & Eve"? Let's just say it's a far cry from "The Wedding Planner." The gritty drama starring Jennifer Lopez and Viola Davis is premiering tonight at the Sundance Film Festival - and needless to say, it's not a feel-good time at the movies. "It was a very intense shoot," said Lopez when I spoke with her this afternoon. "I can't say I was happy the whole time, I wasn't. It was intense, and the scenes between Viola and I are intense. What we're doing is insane. ...it's just a dark thing. You know what I mean? It's not like going to work on a romantic comedy." "And by the way," she hastened to add of her previous rom-coms, "I love those films. But this is something different." Lopez, in case you were wondering, is the "Eve" part of the equation - the devastated mother of a murdered child who hooks »

30 January 2015 12:39 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

While the ratings for American Idol continue to fall lower and lower, it's remained Fox's top show. Will they continue to drop or will they start to rebound this time around? Could the ratings fall low enough to see the series cancelled? Stay tuned.

Hosted by Ryan Seacrest, American Idol typically airs twice a week, on Wednesday and Thursday nights, for only part of the season. For the first time, the results will be wrapped into the performance episodes. Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez, and Keith Urban return to the judge's table.

‘Boy Next Door’ Star Ryan Guzman on Playing Bad, Upcoming Richard Linklater Baseball Comedy (Video)

29 January 2015 8:46 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Ryan Guzman talked about going dark for his role opposite Jennifer Lopez in Rob Cohen’s “The Boy Next Door” and then showing his lighter side in an upcoming baseball comedy written and directed by Oscar-nominated Richard Linklater (“Boyhood”).

Guzman became known for roles in the “Step Up” films and on the ABC Family television series “Pretty Little Liars,” but “The Boy Next Door” offered him a chance to delve into a different place as an actor.

41 A-List Actors Who Bombed as Hard as Johnny Depp in ‘Mortdecai’

28 January 2015 7:04 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When Johnny Depp‘s mustache comedy “Mortdecai” brought in less than $5 million on opening weekend, it marked the A-list actor’s fifth straight box office bomb. But he’s far from the only top billed actor to endure a tanker or two.

The 51-year-old film star and his co-stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor and Olivia Munn are in fact in very good company.

Watch the Best Scene of 2015... So Far

27 January 2015 1:16 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'm still debating as to whether or not The Boy Next Door is a send-up of the thriller genre and director Rob Cohen just didn't know what he was doing or if it's really as god-awful stupid as it appears on the surface. I mentioned the following scene in my review at length and now it has come online for you to enjoy. If you didn't know the nature of the story, The Boy Next Door stars Jennifer Lopez as a literature teacher at a local high school who ends up having sex with Ryan, the titular boy next door, a 19-year-old played by Ryan Guzman. However, before they hit the sheets, Ryan gives her a gift based on their shared love of Ancient Greek author Homer... that gift being "The Iliad"... Here's how it played out... Considering how much of the publicity for this film focused on the "steamy »

'American Idol' Winner Phillip Phillips Files Legal Claim to Escape 'Oppressive' Contract

27 January 2015 11:31 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Phillip Phillips is taking legal action against American Idol's co-producers 19 Entertainment.

In a complaint lodged with the California Labor Commissioner on Jan. 22, the American Idol season 11 winner claims that the producers have "manipulated" him into accepting jobs and entering into other transactions that were actually for the benefit of 19 and its affiliates, and is seeking to void his management, recording and merchandising agreements with the producer.

In the court documents which Et has obtained, Phillips says he "remains grateful [to American Idol] for the opportunities provided to him to demonstrate to the world and capitalize upon his talent, creativity and diligence." However, "the appreciation does not extend to the oppressive, fatally conflicted 19 Entertainment, Inc."

Phillips' multiple complaints include being forced to perform in a live show promoting Idol sponsor Jet Blue for free amongst other similarly questionable gigs, the production company getting as much as a 40 percent cut of »

Jennifer Lopez has weekly sleepovers with her twins. The 45-year-old singer-and-actress lets six-year-old Max and Emme - who she has with ex-husband Marc Anthony - share her bed every Friday so they can have an evening of bonding time together. She said: ''I let them bring sleeping bags into my room and we watch a movie together and then they fall asleep. That's our night to do that.'' Whenever she can, Jennifer has the twins travel with her when she is working and thinks it is good for them to see first hand how putting in effort leads to a better life, but she also wants them to be charitable towards others. She said: ''They understand that I work a lot and that the work pays the bills. It's a good message for kids. ''I grew up poor, so I knew I had to work hard. It's different with them, »

27 January 2015 4:08 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

2Nd Update, Tuesday 4 Am Pt: Actuals are in for the international weekend with no major discrepancies save for a big drop on Taken 3. After Sunday’s report of a $57.2M total in non-Fox markets, the confirmed total came in at $39.8M. The difference was down to an incorrect cume provided to Fox by EuropaCorp for those territories. The overseas total is now a corrected $134M. In new pics, both JLo-starrer The Boy Next Door and Johnny Depp’s Mortdecai saw small bumps (up a respective $23K and $70K). American Sniper reloaded to $18M from a previously projected $17.6M.

Updated below are final numbers on those films along with: The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies, Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb, Penguins Of Madagascar, The Theory Of Everything, Unbroken, Seventh Son, Exodus: Gods And Kings, Into The Woods, Ouija, The Imitation Game, Birdman, Ex Machina, »
