Box Office: 'Mockingjay' trails previous 'Hunger Games' films with $55 million Friday

18 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay" isn't quite keeping the first two films in the series at the box office, but is nonetheless on its way to a massive opening weekend.  Powered by Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, "Mockingjay" soared to $55 million on Friday, making it the biggest Friday opening of the year. "Transformers: Age of Extinction" earned $41.9 million on its first Friday. "Mockingjay" will likely earn around $130 million for the weekend, again topping "Age of Extinction's" $100 million weekend debut. However, "Mockingjay" is doing much slower business that last year's "Catching Fire," which opened to a staggering $158.1 million last year, as well as the first "Hunger Games," which bowed to $152 million in 2012. The first film went on to gross a huge $408 million domestically, while "Catching Fire" topped it with $424 million. The threequel -- the first part of the two-part finale -- will have to make up some ground next week »

The Newsroom Season 3 Episode 1: ‘Boston’ Review

18 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Anthony Hemingway

Writer: Aaron Sorkin

Synopsis: In the wake of the Genoa debacle, the team decides to use caution in reporting a major breaking story. Neal is contacted by an anonymous source in possession of stolen government documents; Sloan looks to solve a takeover puzzle.

Aaron Sorkin has deservedly earned the plaudits in his career and when you’re writing the likes of The West Wing and The Social Network, to name a couple, then every ounce of praise is wholly warranted.  The HBO series The Newsroom has been adored by fans but initially ruffled the sensitive feathers of some critics, I often wonder if a series such as this is little too close to the truth of how the News should be reported and how the media should truly act. The high expectations of Charlie Skinner (Sam Waterston) and Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels) in how they report the »

22 hours ago | GossipCop | See recent GossipCop news »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is expected to crush the box office competition, earning roughly $128 million in its opening weekend, according to early estimates. The blockbuster Jennifer Lawrence sequel should easily win the #1 spot. Meanwhile, it looks like animated film Big Hero 6 will take second place with approximately $21 million. The #3 spot should be a fight between the Matthew McConaughey-Anne Hathaway space adventure Interstellar and the Jim Carrey-Jeff Daniels comedy Dumb and Dumber To. Those movies are currently on pace for about $14 million apiece. »

Jessica Chastain Discusses Astronaut Training & Nasa’s Jpl For Ridley Scott’s The Martian

21 November 2014 1:15 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Ridley Scott’s epic Exodus: Gods And Kings opens in theaters in three weeks.

Jessica Chastain currently stars in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar where she plays a scientist trying to save humanity from extinction.

One year from now, Scott and Chastain, along with Matt Damon, come together in 20th Century Fox’s upcoming sci-fi film The Martian.

“Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.

Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there.

After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive.”

Dumb and Dumber To Movie Review

20 November 2014 11:49 AM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Dumb and Dumber To Director: Bobby Farrelly & Peter Farrelly Starring: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Kathless Turner, Rob Riggle, Laurie Holden, Rachel Melvin, Steve Tom, Don Lake, Patricia French. Dumb and Dumber Two or Dumb and Dumber Too? Either way the intentional typo reiterates the stupidity of our protagonists who are back after two decades. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels have aged badly but more than their farcical out of date “dumb play,” the true problem of ‘Dumb and Dumber To’ lies in the script, drenched with language and coarsely vulgar gags. Twenty years since Dumb and Dumber’s first adventure, Harry finds out he has a daughter who was  [ Read More ]

New TV Shows Could Break Into Crowded SAG Awards

20 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

One thing you’ve got to hand to the SAG TV voters, they’re loyal to a fault. When it comes to the categories for individual acting, once they find someone they like, they stick with them.

Each year a host of veterans, not to mention a steady stream of series newcomers, is forced into the cold by familiar, entrenched names in comedy and drama alike.

So amidst the universal mourning for the “Breaking Bad” and “30 Rock” finales, there must have been a certain amount of secret glee among thesps. After all, the spot Bryan Cranston occupied in male actor, drama, for five consecutive years is now open for business, as are Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey’s in the comedy division, where they competed, and usually triumphed, a total of 15 times.

Opening up Cranston’s slot is particularly tantalizing, since the drama field is crowded indeed. Steve Buscemi of »

Scott Davis chats with Dumb and Dumber To star Brady Bluhm

Twenty years after the original grossed over $240 million, Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels and The Farrelly Brothers are back with a bang. Dumb and Dumber To was released to huge box office takings this last weekend, landing straight into the No.1 spot in the States with a huge $36million bow. But Carrey and Daniels aren’t the only people reprising their roles from the original, as actor Brady Bluhm returns to the Dumb-verse as Billy in 4C, the “blind kid” who Lloyd so famously sold Harry’s dead parakeet to in the original.

In an exclusive interview with Flickering Myth, Staff Writer Scott J. Davis was able to talk with Brady about all things Dumb, and what it was like to be back two decades later….

Watch Ventriloquist Jim Carrey Serenade His Jeff Daniels Puppet

Jim Carrey stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday to promote Dumb and Dumber To, and he brought along a friend — the dummy version of Jeff Daniels. Carrey pointed out that he wasn't the best ventriloquist, and that the audience could likely see his lips moving. But his puppet friend Daniels had a great solution to help him out with his issue. What a nice friend. The pair then broke out into song. Is this the makings of a Dumb and Dumber trilogy? Read more 10 Best 'Dumb and Dumber' Callbacks in the Sequel

‘Interstellar’ At $226M Overseas As China, Korea Show Endurance: Intl’ Box Office Final

18 November 2014 4:02 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Update, Tuesday, 4:02 Am Pt: A couple of things have happened in the world of international box office since late Sunday night. We now know that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I will not be bowing in China in the 2014 calendar year, and we have a little more insight into why Korea is like the proverbial black hole for Interstellar (in the good sense). Exerting an incredible gravitational pull, Korea has advanced itself as a massive $35.9M play (so far) for Christopher Nolan’s intergalactic epic. Here’s why: There is a very strong and vocal Nolan fanbase in Korea, which has generated astronomical word of mouth in the market. I’m told there were a few midnight screenings the night before the opening on November 6, and online buzz began building immediately. The not-so-spacey elements have also played very well, with the emotional and family sub-plots broadening appeal. Worth »

Dumb and Dumber To tops box office with $38.1M

17 November 2014 7:28 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

At the movies, idiocy never goes out of style.

Twenty years after the 1994 original, Dumb and Dumber To opened with $38.1 million at the weekend box office, according to studio estimates Sunday. The Universal sequel debuted almost exactly two decades after the Farrelly brothers first introduced the Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels low-iq duo.

Dumb and Dumber To edged out the animated Disney adventure Big Hero 6, which took in $36 million in its second week. Christopher Nolan's sci-fi epic Interstellar slid to third in its second week with an estimated $29.2 million. The film continues to blast off overseas, where it took in $106 million over the weekend, with sales particularly boosted by a strong opening in China.

The top three films took up the lion share of the box office, with the no. 4 film, the romance Beyond the Lights, opening with a distant $6.5 million. In a Hollywood constantly updating, rebooting and sequalizing old properties, »

Will this be the plot for the Dumb and Dumber To sequel?

17 November 2014 6:24 AM, PST | | See recent JoBlo news »

Sequel talk isn't uncommon, even before a movie comes out, but it seems as though the Farrellys had a good time hamming it up with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels as they seem pretty keen on returning to the world of Dumb and Dumber. Despite reviews not being so hot on this sequel taking place 20 years later (you can check out our review here), the flick managed to rake in $38 million this weekend! Word is that's pretty much all the film's budget right there, so the idea »

There Was a ‘Dumb and Dumber’ Cartoon and It’s Completely Crazy

17 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

There is a Dumb and Dumber cartoon. It is insane and it demands your attention. This may come as a shock if you weren’t watching animation on ABC in the mid-1990s. It was never exactly well-regarded, or even regarded at all. It was canceled after its first season, which ran from October of 1995 through February of 1996. Harry and Lloyd only managed to gallivant through 13 episodes before they were evicted from the screen until 2003’s ill-begotten prequel and, of course, Dumb and Dumber To. The characters, created by the Farrelly Brothers, have had quite a bizarre franchise history. That said, the Farrelly Brothers were not directly involved with Dumb and Dumber the TV series. It was their co-writer on the original film, Bennett Yellin, who stepped in to write the television series. It was produced by Hanna-Barbera, their last project for ABC. This was an important moment for the storied animation studio, which »

Box Office: How Did 'Dumb and Dumber To' Overpower 'Big Hero 6'?

17 November 2014 5:15 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Poor Lloyd and Harry. The perpetual underachievers of the "Dumb and Dumber" movies have been underestimated by everyone.

Certainly, few pundits expected much from "Dumb and Dumber To," the poorly reviewed sequel to a 20-year-old movie, starring a Jim Carrey whose box office strength has dwindled over the last decade. Besides, last week's champ, "Big Hero 6," seemed unstoppable and poised for a repeat victory, with about $35 million in likely earnings. "Dumber," by contrast, wasn't expected to top $29 million.

Nonetheless, "Dumber" confounded the sages and came out on top, with an estimated $38.1 million. How did it defy conventional wisdom for a come-from-behind victory?

Here are some of the ways:

Nostalgia isn't just for old folks. Sure, it's been 20 years since the 1994 original, but it's been in near-constant rotation on cable ever since. A whole generation has grown up watching the silly antics of Carrey and Jeff Daniels as the doofus duo. »

Dumb and Dumber To Teases A Sequel, Get The Details

17 November 2014 1:24 AM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Spoiler Warning: This article contains spoilers about the recently released Dumb and Dumber To. If you haven.t seen the movie and wish to remain ignorant of the details, please click away to another one of our wonderful articles on the website. The end credits of Dumb and Dumber To is a nice treat for fans, as those who have spent years loving the adventures of Harry and Lloyd are treated to a fun little trip down memory lane that sees footage from the new movie juxtaposed against footage from the old. Sweet as those moments are, however, the big show comes at the very end of the credits, which features one last big cameo and a semi-ridiculous promise for the future. For those who didn.t see the movie, allow me to set the scene: Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carrey) have completed their adventure and are driving »

Box Office Weekend: America Loves Dumb

16 November 2014 8:40 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels returned to the big screen 20 years later with Dumb and Dumber To, to most critics’ chagrin. Still, for such a late-coming sequel, it did remarkably well, its estimated opening of $38.1 million more than doubled the original film’s opening weekend (whether it comes close to topping Dumb and Dumber’s $127.2 million domestic gross, though, is the real test). It held tight over big draws Big Hero 6 (estimated $36 million) and Interstellar (estimated $29.2 million), both of which have done well both here and abroad (though Interstellar has done much better worldwide, grossing over $329.1 million in all).

While nothing else on the board picked up over $10 million, critics and audiences were very happy with Beyond the Lights. The romantic drama only made an estimated $6.5 million in its debut, however, and is currently the lowest earning film in the top ten; it cannot hold a candle to Gone Girl in overall take, »
