Box Office Report: Tomorrowland Tops Mild Memorial Day Weekend

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

Remember when Christina Ricci starred opposite a computer-generated array of ghosts in Casper and Mel Gibson donned medieval garb in Braveheart? Those were the two big openers of the 1995 Memorial Day weekend frame 20 years ago – and also the last time this oft-bustling moviegoing weekend failed to see a film hit the $40 million mark. Despite no strong opener over the holiday weekend, making this the lowest-grossing Memorial Day frame since 2001, moviegoers still came out to see a variety of thrilling films, five of which earned more than $20 million over the three days.

In first place was Tomorrowland, an original (and pricey) sci-fi adventure from Disney, which finished with an estimated $32.2 million over its first three days. (The projected four-day estimate is $40.7 million.) That would be a fine start for an original film in summer, but with a $180 million budget, as well as mixed reviews and audience reception (a B CinemaScore), the »

12 '90s Movie Stars Who Defined The Decade

1 May 2015 11:02 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Defining a decade is, quite simply, impossible -- each ten-year span is as specific as the individual experiencing it. And yet there are the inevitable commonalities, events and names and faces who bridge the gap between our subjective journeys, however we choose to interpret them. Try to imagine the '90s without its movie stars. Impossible! It is a cinematic decade largely defined by $20 million-a-picture excess, and these inescapable larger-than-life personas, beaming out at us from billboards and multiplex screens, were the literal faces of that overindulgent era -- notably the last in which movie-star mystique could effectively be exploited. As the decade retreats further and further into the distance, we are afforded some perspective. Which movie stars helped to define that span of our collective experience? And perhaps more importantly: which of them continue to feel like a product of that time, whether or not their careers have flourished »

Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter at the Academy Awards Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter on the Oscars' Red Carpet Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter sported matching hairdos upon their arrival at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

Bonham Carter was a Best Supporting Actress nominee for Tom Hooper's The King's Speech (as another queen, Elizabeth). Helena Bonham Carter: Career boosted by Oscar nomination Helena Bonham Carter's film career began in earnest in James Ivory's 1986 Best Picture Oscar nominee A Room with a View, in which she romanced Julian Sands. She kept on working without creating too much of a stir – e.g., Lady Jane, »

The Outrageous, Bloody, True Story of Lizzie Borden

13 April 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

In case you didn't get enough of Christina Ricci in Lifetime's Lizzie Borden Took an Ax, the network recently debuted a new series, The Lizzie Borden Chronicles. Now, you may have heard the disturbing children's rhyme, "Lizzie Borden took an ax / And gave her mother 40 whacks / When she saw what she had done / She gave her father 41," but you might not be familiar with the true story of Borden. (Her father actually got 11 whacks and her stepmother 19.) If you've gotten into the show or you just want to hear a little more about the murders, Biography has a great description of the murders, History features some interesting facts, and Encyclopedia.com has a very detailed account of her life, and we have the abbreviated story below. Just be warned: there will be bloody parts. Source: Lifetime Born in 1860, Lizzie Borden lived in Fall River, Ma, her whole life. Her mother died when she was young, »

‘Lizzie Borden Chronicles’ Review: Christina Ricci Kills It, But Even Her Brand of Crazy Is Not Enough

5 April 2015 11:24 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It seems such a shame to waste such diabolical talent as Christina Ricci‘s. From “The Addams Family” to “Speed Racer,” “Monster” and on, Ricci adds a twisted gothic spin to anything she appears in. Though it might seem to be, the role of the titular ax-murderer in Lifetime eight-part limited series “The Lizzie Borden Chronicles” is not the best use of her unique interpretation of the universe. Sumptuous costuming and a believable period setting aren’t enough to make up for weak storylines that intend to make more of killer Lizzie than she actually was — though some theories do argue that she was. »

Stewart 'in Talks' to Be Featured in Subversive Iraq War Homefront Satire

4 April 2015 1:36 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Kristen Stewart, 'Camp X-Ray' star, to join cast of 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' Kristen Stewart to join 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' movie After putting away her Bella Swan wig and red (formerly brown) contact lenses, Kristen Stewart has been making a number of interesting career choices. Here are three examples: Stewart was a U.S. soldier who befriends an inmate (Peyman Moaadi) at the American Gulag, Guantanamo, in Peter Sattler's little-seen (at least in theaters) Camp X-Ray. She was one of Best Actress Oscar winner Julianne Moore's daughters in Wash Westmoreland and the recently deceased Richard Glatzer's Alzheimer's drama Still Alice. She was the personal assistant to troubled, aging actress Juliette Binoche in Olivier Assayas' Clouds of Sils Maria, which earned her a history-making Best Supporting Actress César. (Stewart became the first American actress to take home the French Academy Award. »

TV Review: ‘The Lizzie Borden Chronicles’

2 April 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Having chopped up the ratings with a 2014 movie, Lifetime shrewdly returns to the scene of the crime with “The Lizzie Borden Chronicles,” an eight-episode limited series whose success seems virtually assured on the strength of those blood-soaked billboards alone. Christina Ricci reprises her role as the notorious parent-slayer who became the subject of a children’s rhyme, now dealing with the aftermath of having been exonerated while still finding, ahem, permanent solutions to the impediments life throws her way. Joining series like “Hannibal” and “Bates Motel,” also built around antiheroes, “Lizzie” somewhat dubiously gives female psychopaths equal time.

Like the movie, the series derives some of its kick from the period, while giving Ricci a chance to play a role uniquely suited to those great big eyes of hers, offering the audience a chance to see what Wednesday Adams would look (and probably act) like all grown up.

The Lizzie Borden Chronicles: Christina Ricci returns with a vengeance in campy new Lifetime series

21 March 2015 5:00 PM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

Lifetime’s new limited series The Lizzie Borden Chronicles premieres Sunday, April 5 at 10/9Ct. In January 2014, Lifetime took a proverbial whack at bringing the sordid tale of Lizzie Borden to a new generation of horror fans with its original film Lizzie Borden Took an Ax. Starring Christina Ricci as the parent-dispatching Lizzie and Argo’s Clea DuVall as her obedient sister Emma, Lizzie was a bloody good time and a ratings killer, luring 4.4 million viewers on its way to becoming cable’s second-most-watched original film of the year. A few months later, the network approached Ricci with another idea — reuniting with … Continue reading →

Impressions: Ichabod Crane Sleepy Hollow Sixth Scale Figure

23 February 2015 10:54 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Three recent murders, three missing heads, one long-dead killer rumored to be back at work. With minds reeling and heads rolling, the small town of Sleepy Hollow is anything but sleepy when Ichabod Crane arrives. A police constable from New York City, Crane’s methods are unconventional for the brink of the 19th century, as he relies on forensic science over superstition to solve cases.

But with the Headless Horseman prowling the wooded trails, Crane’s science meets the supernatural in Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow. Starring Johnny Depp as the curious Crane, the memorably macabre 1999 film receives a terrific tribute with Hot Toys' new Ichabod Crane Sixth Scale Figure from Sideshow Collectibles. They’ve given us a look at the new entry to their Movie Masterpiece Series and the incredible amount of detail and care put into this Depp depiction is downright scary.

Do You Want a Now and Then Remake?

13 February 2015 2:50 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It's been 20 years since Now and Then opened in theaters and captured the hearts of angsty adolescents with its coming-of-age charm, a killer soundtrack, and a star-studded cast that included Christina Ricci, Gaby Hoffman, Demi Moore, and Rosie O'Donnell. But is the slumber-party staple ready for a remake? Vulture recently caught up with the film's director, Lesli Linka Glatter, who's had conversations about bringing Now and Then back to the big screen (especially since a planned ABC Family version for TV never came to fruition)."I'm very friendly with the woman who wrote it, Marlene King, so yes, that has come up," Glatter told Vulture this past week at the DGA awards. "It seems to be [with] this film especially, young women have come of age on it and I love that; that was one of the reasons we made it, there hadn't been anything done about young girls growing »

25 Reasons You Probably Envied Christina Ricci in the '90s

12 February 2015 9:45 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

With starring roles in hits like The Addams Family, Casper, and Now and Then, Christina Ricci definitely cemented herself in '90s pop-culture history. She brought surprising charm to Wednesday Addams, conveyed some thoughtful life lessons in Now and Then, and kissed then-heartthrob Devon Sawa not once, but twice on screen - not to mention her movie romance with Johnny Depp. Since then, she's continued to win fans over with onscreen appearances and her funny Twitter feed, and last Summer, she had a baby boy. The actress turns 35 this week, so to celebrate her birthday, take a trip down memory lane to remember all the reasons you couldn't help but envy Christina Ricci back in the '90s. »

“Killer Instinct”: Top Ten Disturbed Deviants in the Movies

8 February 2015 1:49 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Cinema deviants can come in all forms or variety. It is just a matter of taking your pick as to what kind of deviant you consider. Perhaps your preference of deviant is of the sexual or molesting persuasion? Or maybe in the arena of hustlers or swindlers or cheaters? Will notorious gangsters and corrupt officials fit the bill for your definition of legitimate deviant sources?

The one type of deviant prototype that no one can question or disregard in terms of an impacting impression is the serial killer…or any killer where the impulse to slaughter is mindless fun or in some cases a perverse release to punish society for their own inner psychological demons and despair.

In “Killer Instinct”: Top Ten Disturbed Deviants in the Movies we will look at the selections of twisted individuals whose overwhelming passion for the pleasure of pain and punishment against their fellow »
