After a stellar IMAX opening last week, it was expected that Universal’s Everest would go on to dominate the Us box office this weekend. However, that didn’t quite go as planned.
Opening to just $13 million domestically, Everest only managed to take fourth place against Hotel Transylvania 2 ($47 million), The Intern ($18 million) and Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials ($14 million). With a reported budget of $55 million, this is not a good opener for the disaster movie, even with its $7.5 million IMAX only weekend.
Next weekend sees the release of Ridley Scott’s The Martian, so it is unlikely that Everest will find its footing in its second week. Thankfully for Universal, they’ve have had major success elsewhere with Jurassic World, Furious 7, Minions and Straight Outta Compton.

Who will save your soul? Well, in the '90s, the answer for Jewel was none other than Sean Penn. The songstress' memoir Jewel—Never Broken: Songs Are Only Half the Story, available now, is proving to be quite the juicy tale. An excerpt from the book reveals that the "Foolish Games" singer had a romance with the actor when she first came onto the scene. She recalled how it all began, when her music career was in its beginning stages, and Penn split from now-ex-wife Robin Wright. "Around this time, in 1995, I got my first TV break," she writes of her television debut on Conan O'Brien's show. "I think I was wearing purple polyester pants with a black T-shirt and a »
Who knew these two were a thing?! In her new memoir, "Never Broken," Jewel reveals she and Sean Penn were an item back in the mid-'90s, when he was on a break with future-wife Robin Wright. The actor contacted her after watching her perform on Conan O'Brien's show in 1995. "My dad was building another cabin ... there was electricity and a phone line," Kilcher reveals of the day Penn made first contact. "One day my dad came to find me, saying, 'Jewel, you must be getting some kooky fans out there in the Lower 48. Some guy just prank-called and said he was Sean Penn.' 'No s**t,' I said, chuckling. 'What did you do?' 'I hung up on the weirdo,' my dad said." Turns out, it was really him though -- and, after he called again, Penn revealed he wanted her to compose a »

Now this is a gem of a celebrity memoir. In Jewel's new book, Never Broken, the "Foolish Games" singer-songwriter, 41, writes that she fell in love with Sean Penn in the mid-'90s, during his brief break from his future second wife, Robin Wright. In the tome, she recalls when her music career was in its beginning stages. "Around this time, in 1995, I got my first TV break," she writes of her television debut on Conan O'Brien's show. "I think I was wearing purple polyester pants with a [...] »
Everest recounts the real-life story of the May 10, 1996 trek to the top of the world's highest peak - a day that would become the deadliest in its history. (That record has sadly since been surpassed.) The movie is based on climber and survivor Beck Weathers's memoir, Left For Dead: My Journey Home From Everest, but most people are more familiar with another book about the fateful expedition: journalist Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air. The film, while epic and frightening - especially when captured in expansive IMAX 3D - still somehow doesn't compare to the real human drama - which, in my opinion, these two books better harness. Read on for more of the true story of Weathers' incredible survival and to find out about his life after Everest. Weathers and Brolin at the La premiere of Everest in Sept. Weathers, now 68, is played by Josh Brolin in the film. »

While the battle at the top of the Us box office was interesting for movies targeting different audiences, there was a more intriguing bit of box office news over the weekend with Universal deciding to launch their latest blockbuster Everest on IMAX screens alone prior to a full release next week.
Well, it paid off.
Opening on just 545 IMAX screens around the country, Everest pulled in an impressive $7.5 million, which is an average of $13,ooo per screen. If Universal can achieve a similar result when its opened nationwide next week, it could be another huge money maker for the studio.
There isn’t much to compare this too sadly. Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol opened on limited number IMAX screens and pulled in $12.7 million – but that was the fourth entry in a franchise with Tom Cruise in the lead role and was a holiday release. If we can compare it to anything, »
