Sony Classics’ Mr. Turner had a near masterpiece of a theatrical debut in limited release, creating director Mike Leigh‘s highest per-theater average for any of his titles opening on multiple screens. But holdovers Inherent Vice from Warner Bros and TWC’s The Imitation Game took the highest and second-highest averages this weekend, while Whiplash, Citizenfour and Force Majeure all passed notable milestones in their on-screen runs.
“This is the perfect alternative to the big Hollywood blockbuster,” said Spc co-president Michael Barker. “This movie is really going to cross over. The reason we wanted to become involved with this film years ago is that Turner is the first modern painter. He bridged the gap between the classical and the modern, and his fans range in all ages. Young people are also very interested in seeing this film.”

Jedediah (Owen Wilson), Octavius (Steve Coogan), Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams), Attila The Hun (Patrick Gallagher), Sacajawea (Mizuo Peck) and the rest of the Museum of Natural History exhibits are back for Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, but the magical tablet that brings them to life at night is losing its powers. Ahkmenrah (Rami Malek) doesn’t know how to restore it, but he thinks his father might. The problem is, his father is on display at London's British Museum so Larry’s (Ben Stiller) got no choice, but to cross the Atlantic to save his friends. With the new installment hitting theaters this weekend, I got the opportunity to meet my favorite actor from the Night at the Museum films, Crystal the Monkey who plays Dexter.

“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” is marching toward a box office victory.
The final installment of Peter Jackson’s “Hobbit” trilogy grossed $16.6 million on Friday in the U.S. on its way to hauling almost $54 million this weekend, which would put its five-day total at $88 million. This is far above recent estimates of $80 million.
The fantasy adventure is miles ahead of the other newcomers this pre-Christmas weekend. Another sequel, “Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb,” is headed for $19 million, while the reboot of “Annie” trails slightly behind with $18.5 million. The films are in a neck-and-neck race after initial forecasts as late as Friday pegged “Secret of the Tomb” as the clear winner.
Aside from giving a much-needed boost to the U.S. box office, if estimates hold, “Five Armies” will have the year’s eighth highest-grossing opening, behind “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”

It sounds like Owen Wilson is just as excited at the possibility of a Zoolander 2 as we are! During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week, the Night at the Musem: Secret of the Tomb star opened up about making a sequel to his and Ben Stiller's hit 2001 comedy. "Well I don't mean to be coy but I know that there's a script and Ben is considering it. So we'll see," the 46-year-old said. "Don't you hope so?" Ellen DeGeneres asked. "I do, yeah," Wilson responded. "We have to do it." Make it happen! Changing topics, Wilson also shared adorable photos of his sons Ford and Finn, which he called "great little »
Title: Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb Director: Shawn Levy Starring: Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Steve Coogan, Ricky Gervais, Rebel Wilson, Ben Kingsley, Skyler Gisondo and Dan Stevens People often easily embrace the natural and intriguing relationships in their lives, and can start taking advantage of the belief that their connections will never be affected by anything in the world around them. It’s not until their beliefs and ideals change, due to their natural maturing and reactions to challenges around them, that they are finally forced to contend with the knowledge that everyone has to let go of those they love at some point.

As his dad put it, Robert Ford Wilson has the melody down, but he's still working on the lyrics.
Owen Wilson stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday, and shared an adorable video of his son attempting to sing the alphabet. Though he seemed to call out all the letters to the tune of the song, Ford didn't quite sing his ABCs in order.

Ford is Owen's oldest son, and the actor gushed to Ellen that he is very protective of his little brother Finn. "He doesn't even call him by his name, he always calls him his baby brother," the 46-year-old Night at the Museum star said. "I think he likes the fact that he's just about 30 pounds, but that Finn is smaller."
The little guy even instructs his own dad on how to handle his baby bro. "He always sort of cautions me like, 'Don't kiss him »

Directed by Shawn Levy
Getting the band back together for one final gig is almost never a good idea. In the case of Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, however, there’s enough ingenuity and fun to justify the encore. Director Shawn Levy adds a few clever wrinkles and plenty of familiar callbacks as he sends his family franchise out with pomp and poignancy. The untimely death of Robin Williams also adds resonance to the film’s melancholy message that letting go is a necessary, painful fact of life.
It’s easy for critics to dismiss films like Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (Sott). When you’re three films into a franchise that’s fueled by a wafer-thin premise, you can feel bored and dissatisfied before the movie even begins. »

In opposition to TV’s “Schoolhouse Rock” classic tune, for movies three is not always the magic number. It’s true for most film franchises especially comedies (with National Lampoon’S Christmas Vacation being the exceptional exception). Many moviegoers still get queasy thinking about last year’s The Hangover Part III. Well, how about a more family friendly comedy series? In 2006 Ben Stiller decided to expand his fan base by starring in the surprise box-office smash, Night At The Museum, an all ages PG slapstick farce. Naturally he followed it up three years later with Night At The Museum: Battle Of The Smithsonian, which did enough business to warrant another entry….five years later?! Really, it took that long for all the stars to align? Now these flicks are special effects heavy and during the post production two of its stars, well, made sure they weren’t available for a fourth installment. »

If Joaquin Phoenix's character Doc Sportello bears witness to the end of the 60's in Paul Thomas Anderson's new film Inherent Vice, then Katherine Waterston's Shasta Fay Hepworth is what he bears witness to. Aside from being the engine that sets the story in motion, she utterly embodies the change that occurred in the culture as free love gave way to greed and paranoia (Shasta herself being a victim of these things, not an avatar for them). Along with a handful of other journalists, I recently had a chance to sit down with Waterston to discuss her role, and what it's like working with such a singular director. Hit the jump for our interview with Katherine Waterston. Inherent Vice is now playing in limited release before going wide on January 9th. It also stars Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, Benicio Del Toro, Eric Roberts, Martin Short, »

The third Night At The Museum installment hits theaters this weekend with one of Robin Williams‘ last performances, plus amusing turns by several series regulars, as I say in my video review above. The cast is led by Ben Stiller as the nightwatchman dealing with lively exhibits at the museum, played by Owen Wilson, Ricky Gervais, Steve Coogan, Rebel Wilson and Ben Kingsley with a terrific performance by Downton Abbey alumnus Dan Stevens as a gung-ho knight.
Veteran comedy helmer Shawn Levy directed from a script written by David Guion and Michael Handelman, from a story by the pair and Mark Friedman. Producers are Levy and Chris Columbus. Fox is handling distribution.

Ever wonder what it feels like for Owen Wilson to play Jedediah, the tiny cowboy from the Wild West Diorama? I got a brief taste of it at the Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb press day last weekend and it’s awkward to say the least. In the franchise’s third installment, Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) and the gang from the Natural History Museum must travel to London to try to figure out how to fix the tablet that brings the exhibits to life at night before it runs out of power. With Night at the Museum 3 making its way into theaters on December 19th, I got the opportunity to sit down (or stand in my case) with Wilson, Stiller and director Shawn Levy. After offering up some advice on how to hold my own at such a tiny size, they busted out some impressions and »

Near the end of Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, Robin Williams talks to Ben Stiller about accepting when it’s time to bid farewell to a loved one. The film is filled with flaccid attempts to pull at our heartstrings, but within the context of Williams’ untimely passing this moment is painfully bittersweet. Unfortunately, the rest of the film’s emotional and comedic moments fall flat as we watch Stiller lazily trudge through another series of museum misadventures. This go round Larry (Stiller) is sent to the British Museum in London to repair the Egyptian tablet that makes all the exhibits come to life at night. The films’ prologue provides some backstory about the discovery of the tablet during an archeological excavation and later on we learn about its creation through a fun Ben Kingsley narrated flashback. These recollections about the tablet are some of the most entertaining moments in the film, »
