The hit animated sequel Kung Fu Panda 3 ended the first month of 2016 on a high note at the box office, taking in $48 million in its opening weekend. In the first frame of February, this adventure will face three new movies, Universal's Hail, Caesar!, Sony's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Lionsgate's The Choice. As expected, none of these new releases could beat Kung Fu Panda 3, which won for a second weekend in a row with an estimated $21 million.
The animated sequel Kung Fu Panda 3 currently has a solid 80% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and it opened in 3,955 theaters, which will still make it the widest release in theaters this weekend, by a long-shot. Kung Fu Panda 3 marks the return of one of the most successful animated franchises in the world, with its biggest comedy adventure yet. When Po's (Jack Black) long-lost panda father (Bryan Cranston) suddenly reappears, »
Written and Directed by Burr Steers.
Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England is faced with a new challenge — an army of undead zombies.
Slow motion takes over as the Bennet sisters begin unsheathing various types of blades hidden underneath their elaborate Victorian-era appropriate garments (in what is a rather titillating shot), but most crucially, seems to promise that the ludicrous movie titled Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will live up to the level of absurd, stupid entertainment promised. That one quick scene offers essentially everything one could want coming into something so ridiculous; beautiful women dressed to kill that know their way around daggers and swords, »

Title: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Director: Burr Steers Starring: Lily James, Sam Riley, Bella Heathcote, Ellie Bamber, Millie Brady, Suki Waterhouse, Douglas Booth, Sally Philips, Charles Dance, Jack Huston, Matt Smith, Lena Headey. ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ is a fresh twist on Jane Austen’s classic novel, based on the best-seller by Seth Grahame-Smith. A mysterious plague has fallen upon the 19th century England. The land is overrun with the undead altering the genteel Victorian social mores, and turning the bucolic English countryside into a war zone. Director Burr Steers instills irony in a film that quotes the original novel by the book…with a touch of wacky spook. The [ Read More ]

Warning – there could be spoilers round these parts…
If you’ve been following superhero news over the last month, then you’ll have seen how Lego sets have potentially given away huge spoilers for both Captain America: Civil War and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Well, the newly released images for the tie-in Lego set for Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot may have done the same thing.
Check out the images below:
The curious images are of Chris Hemsworth’s receptionist character, who appears to be called Kevin. The design of the minifigure suggests that Kevin will try and become a fellow Ghostbuster ala Louis Tully in 1989’s Ghostbusters II. However, it doesn’t look like it works out well for him as he becomes possessed… ala Louis Tully from 1984’s Ghostbusters.
What we’re saying is, Kevin is a combination of Louis and Janine.

Expectations are modest for the trio of openers, with “Zombies” and “Caesar” forecast to finish the Super Bowl weekend with around $10 million each at the domestic box office, and “The Choice” likely to take in around $8 million.
“Hail, Caesar!,” Clooney’s fourth movie with the Coen brothers, has received strong critical support with a 78% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The film, portraying Hollywood studio life in the 1950s, opens at 2,231 sites on Friday.

Zombie films are second only to slashers when it comes to the sheer volume of horror titles released each year, but as popular as they are very few of them seem to make it into theaters. The handful that avoid the direct-to-dvd fate typically feature something extra in the form of a big star (World War Z), a genre lean towards comedy (Zombieland), or an existing franchise (Resident Evil: Retribution). Pride and Prejudice and Zombies checks off one of those boxes — possibly even two if you consider the literary works of Jane Austen to be something of a highbrow franchise. Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James, Downton Abbey) and her four sisters are proper young Victorian ladies trained in both the fine arts and the martial arts — the better to charm the living and decapitate the living dead — and while their father (Charles Dance) is focused on teaching them survival skills their mom’s (Sally Phillips) primary concern is »

To this day I am still surprised how mainstream zombies have become. Currently there are four television shows and more movies churned out in the last decade than any one person could ever hope to watch. With more titles than a herd of Walkers, filmmakers need to insure their title can stand out from the pack. Along shambles Pride and Prejudice and Zombies hoping to bite a piece out of the box office. But is it memorable?
A mysterious plague has ravaged 19th Century England. Mr. Bennett (Charles Dance) has been training his five daughters their whole life for combat. But Mrs. Bennett (Sally Phillips) is worried about her daughter’s future and wants to marry them all off to wealthy suitors. Daughter Elizabeth (Lily James) lays eyes on Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley) at a party and seems quite taken with him. Of course it can’t be that easy »

Neville Longbottom is starring in a movie with Daenerys Targaryen and Finnick Odair! This week, the Me Before You trailer broke our hearts into a thousand pieces and reminded us that the stars of this cast are all major franchise veterans. Harry Potter's Matthew Lewis took to Instagram to share a cute picture with Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke when the two stars were filming the movie adaptation. Emilia isn't the only Game of Thrones actor in the movie, either; Charles Dance, aka Tywin Lannister, is also in the film. As if those crossovers aren't exciting enough, Sam Claflin from The Hunger Games also stars in the film opposite Clarke, with the pair playing the main characters, William and Louisa. Keep reading for more pictures of the cast hanging out together, then check out Harry Potter cast reunions. »

Zombies make everything better! Jane Austen devotees needn’t worry that the makers of Pride And Prejudice And Zombies have ridiculed her perennially popular story of love among the British upper classes. They’ve merely added zombies to it – an improvement if you ask me! I’ve never had the inclination to read Austen’s novel (I’ve heard it’s good), but I once saw a big screen treatment starring Keira Knightly. This high-concept hybrid adapted from novelist Seth Grahame-Smith’s revisionist tome is one of the more interesting horror movies I’ve seen in a while. Not only does director Burr Steer skirt the edges of camp with Pride And Prejudice And Zombies, he accomplishes a wonderful sense of surrealism and whimsy missing in much modern horror. Here’s a movie that delivers on exactly what its title promises. There are the unmarried Bennet sisters, as well as Mr. »

From the opening moments, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies wears its awkward charm on its sleeve. The self-serious Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley) has crashed a ball in 19th-century Britain looking for a zombie amidst a gathering of the wealthy. With a neat trick up his sleeve, he manages to root out the flesh-eater and dispatches him without much pretense in violent fashion — from the point-of-view of the zombie itself, sparing us gory details. The bystanders are shocked and appalled. In this world, like most that make up the zombie genre, there are people who seem keenly prepared and able to survive the plague of the undead and those who seem distraught no matter how aware they are of the situation. In the world of Ppz, we have socialites that doddle around in corsets and finery with knives tucked into their garters.

Emilia Clarke broke out big time during the first season of HBO's Game of Thrones and has remained a fan favorite. As Daenerys Targaryen, she began as a fairly timid young woman who quickly blossomed into a mighty leader. She demonstrated her action chops in last summer's Terminator: Genisys, taking on the iconic role of Sarah Connor and more than holding her own opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger. But how will she do as the star of a beguiling romance? The first trailer for Me Before You reveals that Clarke shines as a young caregiver who falls for a recently disabled man (Sam Claflin). Jenna Coleman and Charles Dance also star; the movie will open in theaters on June 3. The first trailer for Get a Job feels surprisingly nostalgic. Produced in 2012 but only now...

The first trailer for “Me Before You,” based on the novel by Jojo Moyes, debuted Wednesday, giving fans of the novel a sneak peak at the feature film directed by Thea Sharrock. “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke and “Hunger Games'” Sam Clafin find love in the English countryside in the upcoming film.
Will Traynor’s (Claflin) life changed drastically after an accident left him in a wheelchair, and he promised his parents to wait six months before pulling the plug on his own life. When Louisa “Lou” Clark (Clarke) first meets Traynor, the two don’t quite get along. As Traynor’s caretaker, Clark begins to show the wealthy young man the point of living. As they fall for each other, Traynor admits to Clark that she is “pretty much the only thing that makes me want to get up in the morning.” The tear-jerking UK trailer shows the »

Neither as bad as it might have been nor as good as it needs to be, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies lands in that yawning chasm between promising premises and satisfying screen experiences. The movie smacks of shrewd marketing calculations, namely, how to appeal to the same fans who made Seth Grahame-Smith's 2009 adaptation of Jane Austen's classic a surprise best seller? The answer is to focus on fashioning a more swashbuckling version of the Bennet sisters. Not only is that more appealing to modern sensibilities, it's justified within its 19th century setting because of a widespread zombie uprising in England that has changed expectations for how proper young ladies should conduct themselves. Thus, family patriarch Mr. Bennet (Charles Dance) has ensured that his five...

Warner Bros. has made a move to capitalize on the lingering romance ahead of Valentine’s Day by releasing the maiden trailer for Thea Sharrock’s Me Before You – giving our heartstrings a good ol’ tug in the process.
Placing Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin – Game of Thrones and The Hunger Games, respectively – at the heart of the tale, today’s snippet introduces the latter’s quadriplegic, a bitter yet intellectual young banker who has resigned to living out the rest of his days in a wheelchair. On the other side of the budding romance, Clarke’s wide-eyed Louisa “Lou” Clark takes on the role of a caretaker on a whim when her future prospects leave her with little option, and the pair soon fall madly in love.

Following the massive success of Game Of Thrones, it was inevitable that actress Emilia Clarke (best known for portraying Daenerys Targaryen in the series) would begin making her rounds in Hollywood in a variety of genres. Unfortunately, Terminator: Genisys didn't really turn out too well, and the film's sequels have been put on hold until further notice. Though in addition to booking within the genre of action films, Clarke has also turned to making more low-key, emotional flicks like Me Before You.
Check out the trailer for the drama below:
