The Boss Baby Repeats Box Office Win with $26.3M

9 April 2017 1:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After a successful first weekend at the box office, The Boss Baby, an animated comedy from DreamWorks Animation, had no trouble repeating at the box office. The hit movie went up against Warner Bros.' comedy remake Going in Style, Sony's animated adventure Smurfs: The Lost Village and PureFlix's faith-based drama The Case For Christ. None of these new releases stood a chance, with The Boss Baby repeating atop the box office with $26.3 million, followed closely by Disney's blockbuster Beauty and the Beast with $25 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that Smurfs: The Lost Village, Sony's new fully animated movie in the beloved franchise, opened in 3,610 theaters, debuting in third place with $14 million for a meager $3,882 per-screen average. Going in Style debuted in 3,061 theaters in fourth place with $12.5 million with a $4,084 per-screen average, while The Case for Christ opened in 10th place with $3.9 million. Smurfs: The Lost Village and Going In Style weren't critically acclaimed, »

Neil Patrick Harris's Family Snaps Just Keep Getting Cuter

7 April 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Neil Patrick Harris and husband David Burtka often share adorable snapshots of twins Harper and Gideon, and they haven't slowed down this year.

The couple, who secretly got married in September 2014 after 10 years of dating, constantly shares heart-meltingly cute photos of the twins, ranging from their elaborate Halloween costumes to their nights on the town at the Plaza Hotel, eating oysters, and watching jazz shows.

Smurfs: The Lost Village Review: Welcome to Smurfette's Existential Crisis

7 April 2017 9:17 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Smurfs: The Lost Village takes our favorite mushroom dwellers on a new, purely animated adventure. Neil Patrick Harris and Hank Azaria are not popping up here. The film sends a strong girl power message in vivid CGI. The Lost Village is aimed like a laser at young, kindergarten aged children. There are no double entendres or sly references meant for adults. The target audience will be entertained, the parents not as much; unless they're dipping into the mushrooms as well.

It's a regular, happy day in Smurf Village when Smurfette (Demi Lovato) faces an existential crisis. Brainy (Danny Pudi) makes a device that captures your smurfiness; translated, smurf essence. It works marvelously on Hefty (Joe Manganiello) and Clumsy (Jack McBrayer), but draws a blank on Smurfette. What is she really about? What defines her character? She's the only girl, but created by Gargamel (Rainn Wilson) to trap the Smurfs. Smurfette's »

Smurfs & Gramps Take One Last Swing At Box Office -- The Weekend Warrior

7 April 2017 7:30 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. 

Three New Movies May Have Trouble Making Much of a Mark

After a couple impressive March weekends with one new box office record, and a couple impressive openings, we’re now into April, and of the new movies, there just doesn’t seem like anything can defeat last week’s powerful duo of DreamWorks Animation’s The Boss Baby--which exceeded all predictions with $49 million, taking the top spot from Beauty and the Beast. Ghost in the Shell didn’t even do as well as I thought it may, opening with just $19 million, those late reviews helping to kill its weekend.

Sony Pictures Animation are giving the loveable blue Smurfs a third go at American audiences with The Smurfs: The Lost Village (Sony), after two previous movies, »

Smurfs: The Lost Village – Review

6 April 2017 10:55 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Tra-la-lalala”A simple tune that quickly transformed into an earwig which burrowed into the brains of a generation (“Generation X” to be more precise). Yes, it’s the rallying song of that big, blue behemoth of kid-friendly franchises, the Smurfs. Those petite (three apples high) magical imps were introduced by Belgian cartoonist Peyo (Aka Pierre Colliford) way, way back in 1958. They were a merchandising phenom in Europe, but didn’t truly achieve worldwide superstar status until they descended on the Us thanks to TV cartoon titans Bill Hanna and Joe Barbara (the creators of The Flintstones and Scooby Doo also co-wrote that too-catchy theme song with Hoyt Curtin) and became the anchor for NBC’s Saturday morning line-up in 1981 through 1989. Tons of toys and imitations (remember the Snorks?) followed, but things were quiet in their hidden spot in the magic forest for the next twenty years or so. And then »

‘Smurfs: The Lost Village’ Review: Smurfette Stars in Much-Improved, All-Animated Adventure

6 April 2017 9:45 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Lots of little lessons are interspersed throughout “Smurfs: The Lost Village,” but the film itself is an example that even the big, powerful, well-paid grown-ups who run movie studios can learn a thing or two. If you endured the two previous “Smurfs” movies — which cloyingly mixed live actors with CGI Smurfs — you’ll notice the many ways in which “The Lost Village” marks a vast improvement. This time around, the Smurfs don’t invade our world and have wacky misunderstandings; stars like Neil Patrick Harris and Sofia Vergara don’t have to embarrass themselves with big, broad performances; there’s almost no. »

Confessional TV: 6 Shows Told Through Diaries, Letters and Other Personal Accounts

5 April 2017 2:03 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

As producers continue to experiment with TV storytelling, the epistolary format has recently popped up multiple times – from Netflix’s “13 Reasons Why” to Hulu’s highly anticipated adaptation of “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

Epistolary storytelling — told through diaries, letters, newspaper clippings and other documents — has long been a staple of the fiction world. The digital age has allowed this documentation to evolve from the written word to include formats such as emails, recordings, interviews and blogs.

These accounts can lend a sense of realism and authenticity to a story because of the highly personalized voices that mimic how people really communicate, vs. the somewhat omniscient tone of a narrator.

Netflix renews Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events for Season 3

5 April 2017 12:23 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The television adaptation of A Series of Unfortunate Events has been renewed already by Netflix for a third season.

After receiving its season two renewal last month, Netflix has decided to already bestow upon the Neil Patrick Harris led series a third season.

Paramount and Netflix began the journey towards adaptation back in 2014, a full ten years after the Jim Carey movie adaptation failed to impress. However, the first season of the show went down well with critics and seems to be popular with fans too.

Season one of the show premiered back in January of this year with eight episodes, which adapted the first four books in the series. Season two is upping things to ten episodes. There is no word yet how many instalments season three will contain.

The book series has sold over 65 million copies and has been translated into 43 languages.

A Series Of Unfortunate Events Renewed For A Third Season At Netflix

4 April 2017 2:44 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been a busy day in the Netflix camp (when is it not?) what with the announcement that The Defenders, Marvel’s team-up series that acts as the culmination of four superhero solo outings, will debut via the online streaming service in August. A viral site was launched in tandem with the teaser, which offered fans a handy refresher on all four of Netflix’s reluctant heroes before they come together to face Midland Circle and, specifically, Sigourney Weaver’s Alexandra.

Elsewhere on the company’s roster of original content, we have Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, the live-action spin on Daniel Handler’s Ya saga that debuted to relatively strong reviews back in January. Since then, and buoyed by positive word of mouth, Netflix’s gleefully morbid adaptation has gone from strength to strength, scoring rave reviews among critics before the online streamer ordered a second season. »
