‘The Martian’ Lands Solid Opening In China

26 November 2015 1:46 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Martian” delivered a solid opening at the Chinese box office with a $5.91 million score on Wednesday (Nov 25.)

With a day of previews worth another $1 million, that gave the Matt Damon-starring picture a $6.91 million total, according to preliminary figures from local data provider Ent Group.

That fell short of the recent record breaking opening by “Spectre,” but puts “The Martian” in good shape to quickly overtake “Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2,” which currently stands on $19.6 million after six days. In fourth place after 13 days, “Spectre” has a total of $80.7 million.

By 5pm local time on Thursday, “The Martian” had added a further $1.7 million for a running total of $7.68 million.

Despite its awkward midweek opening, “The Martian” obtained more screens than the number two film, “Our Times,” and according to Ent, it enjoyed the highest per screen average of any title in the top ten.

The solid score for “The Martian »

Back in September, principal photography got under way on Universal Pictures' long-awaited Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel, a.k.a. Bourne 5, with producer Frank Marshall sharing the first photo of Matt Damon as Jason Bourne. Production is still under way, with new photos arriving from the Kreuzberg, Germany set, thanks to We Got This Covered and several other sources. While all of these photos feature Matt Damon in action, one of them reveals his face has been bloodied quite badly, despite the smile on his face.

We last saw Matt Damon as Jason Bourne in 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum, which wrapped up a trilogy of adaptations based on Robert Ludlum's spy novels. After that adaptation hit theaters, Matt Damon said that he wouldn't come back for another follow-up unless director Paul Greengrass came back, and they had a story they both wanted to work on.

Examining Hollywood Remakes: True Grit

23 November 2015 2:40 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Remakes…Where would Hollywood be without them? In the third of our continuing weekly series on Hollywood remakes, it’s time to look at one of those very, very rare remakes that is actually better than the original. This week Cinelinx looks at the Cohen Brother's True Grit.

Sometimes an actor can seem like the perfect casting for a role, and have you thinking “I can’t imagine anyone else in this role”, but then a remake comes along and the new actor even outdoes the original one. This week, we’re going to look at the way proper casting can actually elevate a remake above its predecessor. The original 1969 version of the Western True Grit starred Hollywood action legend John Wayne—winning the only Oscar of his long career—whereas the 2010 remake stars one of the most versatile actors of the modern era, Jeff Bridges. Yes, it’s the Dude replacing the Duke. »

7 Early Year Releases, from 'Going Clear' to 'Mad Max,' That Deserve Awards Buzz

20 November 2015 8:16 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Once Venice, Toronto, Telluride, and New York introduce fistfuls of films to the awards race each autumn, it can feel as though the commentariat's collective memory of what came prior has been erased. With the calendar racing toward deadlines for Academy shortlists and guilds and critics groups preparing to vote, we thought it high time to offer a reminder about eight early-year releases that deserve consideration. (Mark Harris conducted an informal poll on Twitter, and four of our choices landed in the top ten vote-getters: "Queen of Earth," "The Duke of Burgundy," "Mistress America," and "Clouds of Sils Maria.") Read More: "Oscar Predictions 2016 (Updated)"  "The Duke of Burgundy" Peter Strickland's exquisite "The Duke of Burgundy" is so far from the Oscar race it may as well be stranded with Matt Damon on Mars, but it's undoubtedly one of the year's highest achievements.

Best of Late Night TV: Jimmy Kimmel Reveals Sexiest Man Alive, Justin Bieber's Nascar Race, Conan in Armenia

17 November 2015 11:01 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Jimmy Kimmel had the honor, once again, of revealing People's new Sexiest Man Alive. But first, Jimmy had the audience guess who it might be, hiding the man's face and disguising his voice. The audience first learned that he was taping his spot from London, he has an "accent," he has never been Sexiest Man Alive before, he's married to a celebrity, he's not an actor, he has kids, he has tattoos, and -- the clincher -- he used to be an athlete. After a guess of Nick Carter (?), someone finally asked if it's David Beckham. And it was! David, 40, thanked his parents, his hairdresser, his stylist, and Photoshop for the honor. »

Pierce Brosnan Didn’t Even Like Spectre

17 November 2015 1:28 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Pierce Brosnan, having played James Bond opposite Denise Richards as a nuclear physicist, knows about missteps in the franchise. So when he sat down with HitFix, he divulged exactly how little he cared for the latest Bond film, Spectre. "I was looking forward to it enormously,” Brosnan said, before lowering the boom with, “I thought it was too long. The story was kind of weak — it could have been condensed. It kind of went on too long. It really did." He then threw some shade on the Bourne movies and said it was more like the Matt Damon franchise in parts than a Bond film.Brosnan, however, is still a fan of his Bond successor, Daniel Craig: "He’s a mighty warrior, and I think he found a great sense of himself in this one with the one-liners and a nice playfulness there.

Todd Haynes, Cate Blanchett, and Rooney Mara Talk Body Language, Relationships, and Love Stories

17 November 2015 10:13 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In Todd Haynes’ exquisite Carol, Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara play two women in 1952 New York, who fall in love and must face prejudice and societal conventions, but most importantly must face their own notions of what they’re allowed to desire. With its overpowering beauty, both dreamlike and earthly, the film presents us with a snapshot of a time and place that make a case for Haynes being one of the greatest anthropologists in all of cinema, a filmmaker whose attention to detail is surpassed only by his humanism.

At a press conference in New York, attended by Haynes, Blanchett, Mara, screenwriter Phyllis Nagy, and co-stars Kyle Chandler, Sarah Paulson and Jake Lacy, the director commented on one of the many qualities that attracted him to tell this love story, and how it reveals “a kind of expression of intimacy that is hard to find a parallel to among gay men, »
