9 Regal Shows and Films to Binge After Finishing The Crown

27 December 2016 2:39 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Two months after The Crown was released on Netflix, we’re in the thick of the holidays, with plenty of time for binge watching … and nothing to watch since we devoured The Crown. If you, too, have already made it through the addictive series, try one of these royally inclined hits instead.

Downton Abbey

An obvious choice for anyone who loves period pieces, England and big, elaborate houses. While not about royalty exactly, Downton Abbey follows the trials and the tribulations of the aristocratic Crawley family against the backdrop of the early 20th century, World War I and the 1920s. »

Afm: German Money Boosts Projects Across Borders

3 November 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Germany has long been the powerhouse driving the economy in Europe, and in recent years its film and TV industries have likewise developed into major players at home and on the international scene.

The country’s sales agents are becoming more involved earlier in the production process due to creators’ financial needs and the agents’ financial connections, says Mariette Rissenbeek, managing director of German Films.

“Projects of well-known independent filmmakers can only be financed by involving international distributors or producers at an early stage,” Rissenbeek says. “German TV series with a high creative level and a high production level also demand international financing in order to be able to get started. Accordingly, German sales agents are more and more involved with this type of pre-sales and co-financing as they are well-connected to the international film and TV industry.”

In the TV arena, she notes, “a number of larger sales companies »

Afm: German Distributors Bring Diverse Slate to Market

3 November 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Germany has cooked up an eclectic array of movies for Afm this year.

The genre-spanning pics include sober historical dramas and biopics, topical thrillers, new works by celebrated filmmakers, science fiction, and family entertainment.

‘Black Mirror’ Season 3 Review: New Genres, New Talent Give Anthology Series an Upgrade

21 October 2016 12:01 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the five years since the debut of Charlie Brooker’s fascinating anthology series, the idea of “like a ‘Black Mirror’ episode” has become a commonly recognized reference point, invoking notions of paranoia, absurdity and, perhaps, a healthy distrust of the ways we’ve allowed technology to shape our world.

But true to the show’s technology-obsessed mindset, “Black Mirror” is always evolving — or upgrading — as the case may be. Launching today on Netflix, the six new narratives go from social satire to police procedural to horror with a relatively new influx of American talent, but the same fascination with the darker impulses of our society.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children movie review: infodump, the movie

1 October 2016 8:10 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take…

Relentlessly dull. A tour of a strange world and “characters” little more than their “peculiar” abilities isn’t enough to whip up fantastical excitement. I’m “biast” (pro): I was a peculiar child, and I remain a peculiar adult; love the cast

I’m “biast” (con): mostly disappointed by Tim Burton lately

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

So it’s Harry Potter Lite. Very lite. No, wait: It’s X-Men Babies. In the land of Groundhog Day, or maybe in a Doctor Who-ish timey-wimey chronic hysteresis. Where they’re haunted by Slenderman. Later, there is a Bill & Ted reference. Remember the days when Tim Burton made movies that took your breath away with their originality? Where has that Tim Burton gone?

Okay, so lots of things are derivative. That’s not necessarily a dealbreaker. »

Box Office: Tim Burton’s ‘Miss Peregrine’s’ Charms $1.2 Million on Thursday

30 September 2016 7:29 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox’s "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children” conjured up $1.2 million during Thursday night previews at 3,000 locations.

Following a recent string of underperforming films at the box office from Tim Burton — notably “Big Eyes” and “Frankenweenie” — “Miss Peregrine’s” could serve as at least partial redemption for the director as it heads toward a solid $30 million opening weekend. The film carries a $110 million production price tag and will open to 3,522 locations starting Friday.

“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” produced by Chernin Entertainment, Tgs and Tim Burton Productions, is based on a novel by Ransom Riggs in which a 16-year-old named Jake is forced to move to a mysterious island where he meets the titular Miss Peregrine.

Movie Review – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (2016)

29 September 2016 2:54 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, 2016.

Directed by Tim Burton.

Starring Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Chris O’Dowd, Allison Janney, Terence Stamp, Kim Dickens, Rupert Everett, Judi Dench and Samuel L. Jackson.

Synopsis:

Following a family tragedy, lonely teenager Jake decides to travel to Wales in order to search for answers that his grandfather has told him can be found at Miss Peregrine’s children’s home.

Welcome to Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and possibly one of the most – superficially, at least – perfect partnerships in film of the past few years: that of director Tim Burton and source material author Ransom Riggs. Stuffed with odd-ball occurrences, period splendour, spindly villains and his usual gothic flair, Miss Peregrine is a Burton-stamped production from the very beginning, even with the story beginning in the exotic climes of Florida.

Jake (the eminently watchable Butterfield) is a typical »

'Miss Peregrine', 'Deepwater Horizon' and 'Masterminds' Close Out September

29 September 2016 12:48 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

When compared to last year, September 2016 has been a bit of a rough and tumble month. While there have been a pair of $30+ million openers, there have also been more than a fair share of disappointments. This weekend closes out the month with two new big budget releases in the form of Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and Peter Berg's Deepwater Horizon, both hoping to make a case for their price tag while the long-delayed ensemble comedy Masterminds finally hits theaters after enduring six release date changes over the past 18 months. Overall, the weekend is once again looking to underperform compared to the same weekend last year, which saw The Martian top the box office with $54 million. At the top, Tim Burton returns to work at Fox for the first time since 2001's Planet of the Apes remake and he does so with Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, »

Box-Office Preview: Can 'Miss Peregrine's Home' Evict 'Deepwater Horizon,' 'Masterminds'?

29 September 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Filmmaker Tim Burton returns to theaters this weekend with the family-friendly Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, which is widely expected to beat Peter Berg's ripped-from-the-headlines Deepwater Horizon and Relativity's comedy Masterminds, according to projections. Based on the popular Ya novel of the same name by Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine is expected to open to $25 million or higher, a solid start for Burton, whose last big-budget Hollywood film, Dark Shadows, was a major disappointment. Fox produced the fantasy film for $110 million with Chernin Entertainment. Asa Butterfield, Eva Green, Chirs O'Dowd, Allison Janney, Rupert Everett,

Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children review

29 September 2016 1:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Published Date  Thursday, September 29, 2016 - 09:52

A mad young inventor in a loft constructs living creatures from spare parts. A teenage girl wears asbestos gloves to prevent herself from lighting fires with her hands. A small boy has a right eye which can project his dreams onto a wall. These and other shunned oddments of society live in a neo-gothic house on a remote Welsh island, all watched over by the imposing yet good-natured Miss Peregrine - who you might recognise as Eva Green smoking a pipe.

There’s much in the novels by Ransom Riggs that seems tailor made for Tim Burton’s cheerfully macabre sensibility, and Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children arrives on the silver screen like an X-Men comic drawn by Edward Gorey. Viewers familiar with such movies as Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands and Dark Shadows will recognise Burton’s handiwork here; Miss Peregrine is, »

Samuel L. Jackson Reveals the Similarities Between Quentin Tarantino and Tim Burton’s Directing Styles

28 September 2016 2:54 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Samuel L. Jackson has worked with almost everyone at this point in his career. He most recently added Tim Burton to that list with “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” an adaptation of the young-adult novel by Ransom Riggs. The actor’s unexpected takeaway from the experience is that the “Beetlejuice,” “Edward Scissorhands” and “Ed Wood” director is “very Quentin [Tarantino]-like” in his approach to filmmaking.

“It’s incumbent on you to come in there as precise and as sure as you want to do as [he is],” Jackson eleborated during the “Miss Peregrine” premiere on Monday night. “But still he expects you to come and create something that’s as unique and visual as what he’s doing.” The actor has worked with Tarantino a number of times, »

Exclusive: Asa Butterfield talks Spider-Man, superheroes and the DC Extended Universe

28 September 2016 12:46 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Before Tom Holland was announced as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Spider-Man for Captain America: Civil War and the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming, fellow Brit Asa Butterfield was frequently mentioned as one of the front-runners for the role, with certain rumour sites even going as far as to claim on several occasions that he’d been cast [see here and here].

Flickering Myth’s Scott Davis caught up with Asa this week to discuss his new film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, during which he shared his thoughts on portraying a superhero, and revealed that he’s more of a DC fan, and would love to appear in the DC Extended Universe. Here’s an excerpt from the interview. Be sure to check back tomorrow for the full thing.

The Weekend Warrior 9/30/2016: Deepwater Horizon, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Masterminds

28 September 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.   

This Past Weekend:

 While the new movies reigned at the box office this past weekend, both Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven (Sony) and the animated Storks (Warner Bros.) didn’t fare nearly as well as our projections, both falling short by about $10 million. The Magnificent Seven, starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt, fared decently with $34.7million, which is about the average for Washington’s films, but the fourth highest opening for a Western after last year’s The Revenant, the animated Rango, and Cowboys and Aliens. Storks’ $21.3 million opening wasn’t great compared to other animated September releases with Sony still holding the September opening record with Hotel Transylvania 2, but it should continue to do well with no other animated movies opening for another month. »
