Oscars news: 'Birdman' academy screening reax, Documentary Short field narrowed to eight

6 hours ago | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Pete Hammond has the inside scoop on this weekend's official academy screening of "Birdman," observing: "The good news for distributor Fox Searchlight is that much of that crowd stayed for the Q&A following the film with director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, sure-fire Supporting Actor contender Edward Norton, and actress Andrea Riseborough. That’s a good sign as it isn’t always the case ever since the fickle Academy voters started getting the Q&A treatment a couple of years ago. So in this instance, it’s not the attendance figure or even birdmanthe audible response, it’s that they didn’t bolt for the exits afterwards. Deadline -Break- Oscars predictions update: Experts still backing 'Boyhood,' Michael Keaton, Julianne Moore, ... The academy has winnowed a field of 58 entries down to eight semi-finalists for Best Documentary Short. Among these are three films about the terminally ill, including "Th...' »

Final: ‘Fury’ Wins Box Office War With $23.7M; ‘Book Of Life’ At $17M; ‘Gone Girl’ $100M+; ‘Best Of Me’ $10M – B.O. Final

19 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Final Update, 1:32 Pm: Fury ended the weekend at $23.7M for Sony and Qed, so it underperformed all the tracking (gee what a surprise), social media metrics, and expectations just a little. But it will likely still make money all in after its domestic, international and home entertainment run. I understand that there were significant profit participations on this one. Fox and Reel FX’s The Book Of Life closed the weekend on the high end of our estimate with $17M and will have some playtime again over the next two weekends as no new offerings are in the family zone until Big Hero 6 bows from Disney on November 7. The other newbie, Relativity’s The Best Of Me, was soft with $10M. Gone Girl is now sitting pretty at $106.7M after three weeks in release for Fox and New Regency.

Oscars: ‘Birdman’ Flew Sky High In Theaters, But How Did It Play With Academy Voters?

19 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

There can be no question that one of this year’s most anticipated films, Oscar-wise, flew high in its limited platform break at the box office this weekend. With an estimate exceeding $400,ooo at just four theatres in NY and La, the $103,000-per-screen figure indicates strong want-to-see on the coasts. I had expected this totally unique and original film, with its orgiastic critical and Venice/Telluride/NY film fest response and general must-see status, would be huge on its first break. And since both NY and La are full of industry players, that bodes well for the awards future of the film.

So how did it do with Oscar voters? Well, it also played a fifth cinema on Sunday, the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre in Beverly Hills, where it had its “official” Academy screening to a nearly packed auditorium of what is estimated by several attendees at about 90% capacity. Most told »

'Birdman' (2014) Movie Review

21 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Once Birdman starts it doesn't stop until the film runs out and even then its energy seems to bleed into your veins as you exit the theater. It's a story of actors and the stage, artists and their critics. It's about the desire to be somebody as much as it's the fear of being a nobody. It tells of a world where artists are no longer recognized for their talent, but instead for the larger-than-life characters (literal and figurative) they play. Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton) is one such artist. Years ago, Riggan played Birdman in a trilogy of big budget, billion dollar blockbusters. The franchise was a massive hit and he turned down a lot of money for Birdman 4. Now he finds himself at his wits end, quite literally haunted by the character that made him famous while at the same time attempting to become the actor he's always dreamed of being. »

50th Chicago International Film Festival Review – Birdman (2014)

20 October 2014 4:41 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Birdman. 2014

Directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu

Starring Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Zach Galifianakis, Emma Stone, Amy Ryan, Andrea Riseborough and Naomi Watts

Synopsis:

A washed-up actor who once played an iconic superhero must overcome his ego and family trouble as he mounts a Broadway play in a bid to reclaim his past glory.

There might not be a more meta film in existence than Alejandro González Iñárritu’s latest film Birdman. There is the obvious selling point of the film in that Michael Keaton – famous in real life for portraying Batman yet recently finding himself accepting a load of crappy projects – playing Riggan Thomson, a washed up Hollywood actor that society most associates with Birdman, but the mimicking of reality actually goes even further down the rabbit hole. Edward Norton’s Broadway performance art actor character Mike is a total prick to everyone on-set, and if you go do some »

Birdman's Gonzalez Iñárritu: 'Superhero films are cultural genocide'

20 October 2014 3:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Birdman director Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu has called superhero films "cultural genocide".

The filmmaker warned about the philosophy of the genre and the values that he perceives such movies to promote.

"I sometimes enjoy them because they are basic and simple and go well with popcorn," Gonzalez Iñárritu told Deadline.

"The problem is that sometimes they purport to be profound, based on some Greek mythological kind of thing. And they are honestly very right wing.

"I always see them as killing people because they do not believe in what you believe, or they are not being who you want them to be. I hate that, and don't respond to those characters.

"They have been poison, this cultural genocide, because the audience is so overexposed to plot and explosions and s**t that doesn't mean [anything] about the experience of being human.

"If you observe the mentality of most of those films, it's »

'Birdman' warmly received at Academy screening as Norton and company hold court

19 October 2014 8:59 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Beverly Hills — Fox Searchlight's "Birdman" flew into limited release this weekend with a fantastic $103,750-per-screen average and plenty of Oscar potential. This comes on the heels of a New York press blitz built around a closing night New York Film Festival berth for the film and with the expectation for limited availability from the ensemble and key crew members during the upcoming awards season (and in lieu of a proper Los Angeles premiere, to boot). At the film's official Academy screening Sunday afternoon, Alejandro González Iñárritu's thematically rich, formally inventive opus drew a sizable turnout (800 or so people in the 1,000-seat venue) and a warm reception that seemed to indicate this one will do well with voters. Nevertheless, I'm mostly against taking reportage from Academy screenings to heart. So take any or all of this with a grain of salt. Generally this kind of thing is only an element »

Brad Pitt's Fury and Michael Keaton's Birdman Top Box Office

19 October 2014 7:35 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Brad Pitt's "Fury" war movie took first place at the domestic box office this weekend with $24 million, which is one of the best openings of all time for a World War II film behind "Pearl Harbor" ($59 million), "Inglourious Basterds" ($38 million) and "Saving Private Ryan ($31 million). It's also the highest opening of director David Ayer's career. The new movie, co-starring Shia Labeouf and Logan Lerman, cost $68 million to make and has an 81% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. Thanks to positive reviews, it's expected that "Fury" will have a strong showing overseas, where it begins to roll out next weekend. The animated "Book of Life" movie, voiced by Channing Tatum and Zoe Salanda, ended up in third place with $17 million, which puts it on track to barely earn back its $50 million budget. Internationally, "Book of Life" took another $8.6 million for a worldwide debut of $25.6 million. It has a 79% fresh rating. The »

‘Birdman’ Astounds in Limited Box Office Debut, But How High Can It Fly?

19 October 2014 10:39 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Birdman” soared at the arthouses this weekend with the show business satire enjoying a smashing debut that could help it travel beyond the cinephile crowd.

The quirky comedy from Fox Searchlight picked up $415,000 in just four theaters, making it the year’s second-highest grossing film from a per-screen average standpoint. Its average of $103,750 is behind only “The Grand Budapest Hotel’s” $202,792 number.

“When the numbers started coming in on Friday, we all went ‘wow,'” said Frank Rodriguez, senior vice president of distribution at Searchlight. “We were seeing all the seats fill up. There’s so many films out there. So many holdovers and so many new films, that it’s hard to get the seats you need.”

In order to meet the demand, Searchlight will expand “Birdman” beyond New York and Los Angeles to 18 markets and between 40 and 50 theaters. Within three to four weeks, it hopes to have the film in between 400 and 600 theaters. »

‘Birdman’ Swoops Into Theaters, Will Attempt to Fly All the Way to Oscars With Clipped Wings

18 October 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu‘s Birdman, an inventive Gotham-set dramedy about the mid-life crisis of a former movie star desperately trying to revive his career by going to Broadway — played, in an Oscar-caliber performance, by Michael Keaton, with support from Edward NortonNaomi Watts and Emma Stone — is being released by Fox Searchlight in select theaters Friday.

Over the past week, the aforementioned individuals made a barrage of appearances in New York (Keaton hit Los Angeles last month), some aimed at driving moviegoers to the box-office to see the $18 million film — which is not the easiest sell — but much of it geared toward courting Oscar voters during the small window in which these folks were available to do so.
