California was the shooting location for 12 of the top 100 box office performers last year, trailing Georgia, the U.K., and Canada, a report by FilmL.A. showed Tuesday.

Georgia was the top-ranked location with 17, followed by the U.K. with 16, and Canada with 13. Films shot in California that were released last year included breakout hit “La La Land” and “Sully,” along with three films — horror-thrillers “Ouija: Origin of Evil” and “The Conjuring 2” and James Franco-Bryan Cranston comedy “Why Him?” — that received tax credits under the state’s expanded tax incentive program.

The state ramped up its tax credit program in 2015 by expanding its annual allocation of credits from $100 million to $330 million and establishing a selection system that gave priority to the jobs created by the films. The California tax credit »

‘Wakefield’ and ‘Abacus’ Lead Openers, But ‘Paris Can Wait’ Rules

21 May 2017 11:40 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This weekend, the entire specialized industry is huddled in Cannes in search of the next big things. On the home front, just three noteworthy films opened, each on a single Manhattan screen. Two of them, the Bryan Cranston-starring “Wakefield” and Steve James’ financial world set documentary “Abacus: Small Enough to Jail,” showed some life.

Eleanor Coppola’s “Paris Can Wait” had a promising second-weekend expansion, and looks to be the standout  over the next month and more. Still, results remain minor after a couple post-awards months led by “Gifted” and “The Zookeeper’s Wife.”


Wakefield (IFC) – Metacritic: 60; Festivals include: Telluride, Toronto 2016

$14,120 in 1 theater: PTA (per theater average): $14,120

Bryan Cranston has become an omnipresent force in TV, Broadway, and features. This film, opening many months after its September festival premieres, “Wakefield” puts him front and center as a Manhattan law partner who zones out of his suburban life »

19 May 2017 7:11 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

There's a simple reason why Jennifer Garner agreed to the role of Diana in the upcoming movie Wakefield. It spoke to her.

Et caught up with the 45-year-old actress on Thursday at the film's premiere in New York City, and she explained why she thinks Wakefield will resonate with audiences.
