Weekend Box Office Preview: ‘Sausage Party’ Battles for Top Spot, ‘Ben-Hur’ Will Flop

18 August 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The late August weekends prior to Labor Day can offer opportunities for box office breakthroughs because the studios historically save these dog days for their weakest entries. Three years ago Weinstein took “The Butler” to $116 million domestic after a robust $24.6 million opening. None of this weekend’s three new wide releases will reach that level.

“Ben-Hur” (Paramount), “Kubo and the Two Strings” (Focus) and “War Dogs” (Warner Bros.) as well as three holdovers should all score more than $10-million for the weekend. That would set a record for the last half of August, and so would any Top Ten total above $114 million (unadjusted at least). This weekend in 2015 scored only $85 million.

Two pictures are contesting for different contests weekend bests. One will ends up at #1, in a close race between the third weekend of Warner Bros.’/ D.C. Comics’ fast-falling “Suicide Club” and Sony’s sleeper animated success “Sausage Party. »

Linda Cardellini has joined the upcoming action thriller Hunter Killer and, at the present time, appears to be the only woman in the cast.

Gerard Butler will play an American submarine commander, who is sent into Russian waters to rescue the Russian President (Gary Oldman), who is caught in the midst of an armed coup. Also in the cast are Toby Stephens, Billy Bob Thornton, Common, Ryan McPartlin, and Gabriel Chavarria. Linda Cardellini will play Jane Norquist – a senior Nsa analyst and Russia expert.

Toby Stephens And Michael Nyqvist Plot Course For Gerard Butler’s Submarine Thriller Hunter Killer

22 July 2016 8:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Continuing its mission of assembling some of the toughest actors in Hollywood, Millennium Films has enlisted John Wick alum Michael Nyqvist and Toby Stephens – star of the hit Treasure Island prequel series Black Sails – for its upcoming submarine thriller, Hunter Killer.

Surfacing from choppy waters, Millennium picked up rights to the adaptation – one sourced from George Wallace and Don Keith’s acclaimed novel Firing Point – from Relativity Media in light of the company’s financial woes. Now, it appears to be firmly back on track, with Nyqvist and Stephens bound for the deep blue alongside Gerard Butler, Gary Oldman, Common and Billy Bob Thornton.

Helmed by Donovan Marsh, THR reveals that Nyqvist is set to take point as Captain Sergi Andropoyov, while Lt. Beaman is the name of Stephens’ no-nonsense black ops team leader.

Londoners put through their paces at the London Has Fallen: Urban Heroes Event

19 July 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To celebrate the release of the explosive, fun-filled adrenaline ride that is London Has Fallen on both DVD & Blu-ray yesterday (July 18th), Londoners have been put through their paces at London’s Southbank with the London Has Fallen: Urban Heroes Event.

In partnership with Lionsgate Home Entertainment, obstacle course race experts Urban Attack constructed the imposing course on Riverside Slice in the shadow of the Oxo Tower. Members of the public competed on the course to see if they had what it took to emulate London Has Fallen’s resident hard man, Mike Banning (Gerard Butler). Some well-known faces, including Sam Callahan and Chloe Paige (X Factor) and Love Island’s Chris Baxter also took part whilst YouTube sensation Tobiias and his unwitting housemates took on former Sas trooper, ITV fitness trainer and Urban Attack’s owner Rob Edmond… and lost.

London Has Fallen Blu-ray Review

16 July 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

There could be a moment where films like London Has Fallen start to accidentially reflect reality a little too much but in the escapism of cinema, and the vast push towards those classic almost-impossible action movie boundaries, there’s more than enough here to take you away with an entertaining and cheesy, yet action packed, sequel of sorts to Olympus Has Fallen.

Not messing around with the winning formula in any way, Gerald Butler‘s Mike Banning returns to try and save President Ben Asher, played again by Aaron Eckhart, after a routine State visit to London ends up becoming a setup to kill all the world leaders and consequentially a deadly bloodbath. There’s not an excessive amount you can say about the plot because as a whole it involves Banning and Asher trying not to be killed by a seriously high volume of baddies that are both seemingly »

London Has Fallen: Bromance at the Movies

12 July 2016 2:18 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Let’s face it; it’s a fairly daunting task to save the world all by yourself. Not to mention, doesn’t having a partner by your side make fighting crime and evil so much more fun? We think so.

With the upcoming release of Olympus Has Fallen sequel, London Has Fallen on digital platforms from 11th July, 2016 and onto Blu-ray & DVD from 18th July, 2016, the ultimate buddy duo President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart) and his top security detail Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) are back to save the world from imminent danger once again. This time, however, the American duo is on foreign ground, in London. This is new territory for the pair but Asher and Banning remain astonishingly in sync.

Whether they will admit it or not, there does seem to be a special bond, dare we say bromance… that develops between the two men working toward a mutual mission. »

Post-Bankruptcy, Relativity Seems Stuck in Limbo

11 July 2016 5:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Not long before Ryan Kavanaugh’s Relativity Media won its release from bankruptcy in April, the ebullient CEO said he would now be leading a “well-capitalized media company that is well positioned for growth and success.” His financial adviser, from the firm of Houlihan Lokey, predicted the reborn Relativity would attract a “feeding frenzy” of new investment.

Kavanaugh’s company did shed a mountain of debt, and many employees, during its eight months under Chapter 11 protection. But today, the Beverly Hills-based entertainment concern finds itself with many of the same challenges that dogged it even before it was forced to seek bankruptcy protection a year ago. It’s still struggling to attract new investment and now has released its grip on a pair of key film distribution deals.

Relativity needed senior creditors to agree at the end of June to extend the date for the company to make a $30 million debt payment, »

Relativity: ‘Den of Thieves’ & ‘Hunter Killer’ Announcements Ripped From The Pages Of ‘The Twilight Zone’

8 July 2016 9:52 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Relativity put out back-to-back press releases tonight (both dated Thursday) stating that it had “reached a milestone” at the company. That ‘milestone’ it said was selling the Gerard Butler-starring Den of Thieves to Stx for $1.2M (the sale of which was reported two months ago). It said it did so to comply with the Court’s compliance for its emergence from bankruptcy to sell the property “North of One Million dollars.” (Think Austin Powers). Oddly, the company also put… »
