Box Office: Scarlett Johansson’s ‘Lucy’ to Out Muscle ‘Hercules’

6 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

One of Hollywood’s hottest action stars will inject a shot of adrenaline into the moribund summer box office this weekend, when “Lucy,” Scarlett Johansson’s revenge thriller, hits screens.

Distributed by Universal, “Lucy” will unroll across 3,172 theaters this weekend and should shoot up an estimated $36 million. That would be a nice return on a $40 million budget and a sign that audiences don’t always need their on-screen mayhem to arrive pre-branded, pre-merchandised and plucked from venerable comic books or toylines. It’s the rare original film that looks ready to upend the steady stream of same-olds.

Film Review: Scarlett Johansson’s “Lucy

Sadly, “Lucy’s” main competition, “Hercules,” is looking less than godly. Paramount and MGM’s $100 million re-imagining of the old Hydra killer is on track to debut to roughly $25 million across 3,600 locations, which would be a scrawny showing given the high cost of the production.

Who comes to mind when you think of kick ass women in movies? On the classic side, you may name Sigourney Weaver as Ripley in the Alien movies or maybe Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor in The Terminator series. More recently, you may have thought about Angelina Jolie, Gina Carano, or Ronda Rousey in next month's The Expendables 3. You also could have instantly thought of Black Widow herself, Scarlett Johansson, who looks to play another kick ass babe in this week's Lucy. We »

'Maleficent' Crosses $700 Million Worldwide, Shining Jewel in Lackluster Summer

22 July 2014 11:49 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Disney had the sense to back its Sleeping Beauty spin-off starring Angelina Jolie, "Maleficent," knowing that the Disney brand could sell the film worldwide. After all, the studio has done well with fairy tale princesses for its entire history, from "Snow White" to "Frozen." Now "Maleficent," which opened May 30, has topped $700 million worldwide, marking Jolie’s highest-grossing live action film of all time domestically, internationally and globally, as well as the highest grossing original film of 2014 worldwide. "Maleficent" is a shining jewel in a dull summer box office that has dipped 20 % so far. The year to date is down by 6 %. The other Hollywood studios are paying the price for sticking to lookalike formulas, chasing sequels and the fickle male demo. Many of the disappointing films aimed at men didn't pull enough women, and several films aimed at women have done well even with mixed reviews, from spring hit »

Chris Pratt's Hollywood transformation in pictures over the years

22 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Chris Pratt looked as though he had undergone a complete Hollywood transformation as he attended the premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy in Hollywood last night (July 21).

The 35-year-old star, sporting a new spiky hairdo, was looking bronzed and groomed on the red carpet for the Marvel movie, in which he plays the lead role of Star-Lord.

We take a look at the ever-changing Chris Pratt over the years below:

Cameron Crowe’s latest, starring Bradley Cooper, delayed until 2015

21 July 2014 11:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Wrap has reported that the currently untitled return of director Cameron Crowe (Vanilla Sky, Almost Famous) has been pushed back from it’s original Christmas Day release until the middle of next spring. And while it may seem like a downer, it sounds like Sony, who are distributing the movie, have made the right choice considering the competition it faced in the Us over Christmas.

In the Us, the film was originally set to go head-head-to-head with a glut of wide, and potential hit, films. Disney’s big film for the festive season, an adaptation of musical Into the Woods, starring Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt and Chris Pine was arguably the biggest obstacle.

Other obsticles included Angelina Jolie-directed Unbroken, cult-comedy sequel Hot Tub Time Machine 2 and  Tim Burton’s Big Eyes, which begins it’s limited release on the same day, but will still draw in the crowds. »

Robert Downey Jr. Named The Highest-Paid Actor By 'Forbes' With $75 Million

21 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Robert Downey Jr. has been named Hollywood’s highest-paid actor by Forbes, which estimates that Downey earned $75 million in the past year, between June 2013 and June 2014.

Robert Downey Jr., Highest Paid Hollywood Actor

A big chunk of Downey’s income comes from his lucrative deal with Marvel as the on-screen manifestation of Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, in the Iron Man trilogy – the third of which was released in May 2013 – and The Avengers franchise. This is the second year in a row that Downey has earned the top spot on the exclusive list.

In second place is Dwayne Johnson, who has a recurring role in the Fast and Furious franchise and is continuing to make a name for himself as an action hero. This summer he will star in the summer blockbuster Hercules, earning him a reported $52 million.

Also on the list are Bradley Cooper, clocking in with an estimated $46 million, »

Untitled Cameron Crowe Movie Starring Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone & Bill Murray Pushed To 2015

21 July 2014 2:44 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With release schedules in the fall generally packed with tentpoles trying to muscle their way between Oscar contenders, it can be tough to try and fit something in that's neither. And certainly, Cameron Crowe's upcoming untitled rom-com would've faced stiff competition. Originally set for a Christmas Day release, the movie has now been pushed to next spring, and it looks like a wise move. Sony has announced the release date change and it takes Crowe's movie out of the way of Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken," Disney's musical "Into The Woods," MGM's sequel "Hot Tub Time Machine 2," and the family movie "Paddington" all opening in wide release. And that's not to mention the Mlk pic "Selma" and Tim Burton's "Big Eyes" coming in limited release. Sometimes, you gotta know when to fold 'em. And to hear Sony tell it, Crowe's film probably wasn't going to be an awards season contender anyway. »

Lucy New Red Band Clip Emergency Room

21 July 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

I have no idea what Luc Besson’s Lucy will be like. But the more I see of it, the more intrigued I get with Scarlett Johansson’s latest big screen outing. The latest clip, which is quite mild in the Nsfw stakes, is incredibly bad ass. It’s also quite funny. Part of me wonders though, bad assery aside, will this turn into something like Salt with Angelina Jolie. Hopefully not as Johansson looks to be having a blast here. And above all else, it might give us some feel for a Black Widow movie, should one ever see the light of day! Still though Besson hasn’t written anything decent in years, let alone directed anything good in a similar time frame. Hopefully this is a return to form, as it’s a long time fucking coming! Released: July 25th USA / August 22nd Ireland & UK Synopsis: From La Femme Nikita »

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt to Get Intimate Again on the Big Screen in 'By the Sea'

21 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie met while filming the action thriller Mr. & Mrs. Smith, which came out back in 2005, but since then they've pursued separate projects -- until now. The two will star in By the Sea, based on a script that Jolie is writing and will direct. Universal Pictures will release the project, according to Deadline. We first heard about this potential teaming in May, though this is the first we've heard that Jolie would also be directing. Rumor had it that the project might be a relationship drama about a married couple trying to save their marriage. Without providing any details, the official statement about the movie describes it as "an intimate, character-driven drama." Jolie is busy finishing postproduction work on historical epic...

Angelina Jolie to Direct and Star in By The Sea with Brad Pitt

21 July 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

With the second movie she’s directed now in post-production, Angelina Jolie has lined up her next with By The Sea. She actually penned the script and plans on also directing and starring in it.

However, joining her will be her husband Brad Pitt, making this the first time that the two have worked together since 2005′s Mr and Mrs Smith. Unfortunately, there are no plot details available on By The Sea as of yet, but Universal have already picked up the rights and are clearly pleased with what Jolie has done with Unbroken.

That movie (which is set for a Christmas release) is based on the true story of Olympian and war hero Louis Zamperini and adapted from author Laura Hillenbrand’s bestseller. By The Sea on the other hand  is described as an intimate, character-driven drama, and Jolie and Pitt will also be producing it together.

Angelina Jolie To Co-Star With Brad Pitt And Direct 'By The Sea'

20 July 2014 10:23 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Has there been a major Hollywood couple where the wife actually directed her husband in a movie? The Hollywood directing ranks are overwhelmingly male, but there have been no shortage of power couples that could have tried it out. But more often than not, it's the man who wears the pants behind the camera. Kudos to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, who, with the help of Universal, will try to change that. CNN reports that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt will star in By The Sea, which Jolie will write and direct. The material is being called an "intimate character-driven drama," which likely means it will share no DNA with the last time Pitt and Jolie were onscreen together. That would be nine years ago, when they finally became a romantic pair offscreen while shooting the fantasy action romance Mr And Mrs. Smith. This will be Jolie's third directorial effort. »

Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Head By The Sea

20 July 2014 10:42 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

There has recently been speculation about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt reuniting on screen for their first project since 2005’s Mr. And Mrs. Smith. Now it’s becoming official, with the news that Universal has snapped up the rights to make what is currently called By The Sea.Very little is known about the movie, though Variety has heard that it’ll focus on a couple’s relationship, which isn’t that surprising given who is on board. Jolie is planning to write and also direct the film, which means it will have to wait until she finishes work on the Louis Zamperini film Unbroken, due in cinemas for Christmas.“I am very happy to continue my relationship with Donna and the entire Universal team as I finish Unbroken and begin work on By The Sea," Jolie said in a statement. “They have created a very special place for storytellers, »
