Box office: 'Ouija' haunts 'John Wick' and 'Fury' with $8.3 million Friday

6 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The paranormal thriller "Ouija" wasn't playing games at the box office on Friday, as the film scared up $8.3 million, topping fellow newcomer "John Wick" and the holdover "Fury." The Michael Bay-produced film reportedly cost just $5 million to produce, and will likely earn around $20 million for the weekend. It stars  Daren Kagasoff, Douglas Smith and Olivia Cooke. In second place, "Wick," starring Keanu Reeves, made off with $5.4 million in its opening night. Spurred by largely positive reviews, it is on track to shoot its way to $15 million or so in its debut weekend, a sum considerably higher than initial tracking indicated. "Wick" should also be a timely victory for Reeves, who has had box office trouble over the last few years, culminating in last Christmas' mega-flop "47 Ronin." Meanwhile, Brad Pitt's WWII drama "Fury" rolled into third place with $4.1 million. Directed by David Ayer ("End of Watch"), "Fury" has earned »

'Ouija' Haunts Top Spot on Friday with $8.3 Million

7 hours ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

On a somewhat quiet Friday at the box office, supernatural horror flick Ouija took first place ahead of Keanu Reeves action movie John Wick.Meanwhile, Bill Murray's St. Vincent did decent business in its nationwide expansion.Opening at 2,858 theaters, Ouija earned an estimated $8.3 million on Friday. That's a far cry from Annabelle's $15.5 million, but is above recent October horror movies Sinister ($7.4 million) and Carrie ($6.5 million). If Ouija holds like those three movies, it will wind up with around $20 million this weekend.John Wick opened in second place with a solid $5.45 million. That's roughly on par with last Fall's The Family ($5.37 million), and is above recent movies like A Walk Among the Tombstones ($4.76 million) and 3 Days to Kill ($4 million). For the weekend, John Wick is now targeting $14 to $15 million.Coming off opening weekend, Fury fell 54 percent to an estimated $4.1 million. That's a so-so drop for a movie with positive reviews, »

Friday Box Office: Ouija Conjures Easy Win; John Wick Strong in Second

7 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

After four adult-skewing frames in a row, teen audiences will regain control of the box office with Ouija this weekend.  The PG-13 horror movie starring Hasbro’s venerable “board game,” earned $8.3 million from 2,858 locations on Friday despite receiving some of the worst reviews of the year.  Ouija is not going to break out like R-rated Annabelle did a few weeks back, but the Universal release should have no trouble summoning over $20 million on its first weekend in theatres.  John Wick took second place yesterday, earning an estimated $5.45 million from 2,589 locations.  The R-rated drama marks the return of Keanu Reeves to the action genre after a less than stellar run in 47 Ronin last year.  Originally expected to bring in under $12 million, good reviews and strong word of mouth should get John Wick closer to $15 million through Sunday. More box office news and Friday’s top five after the jump. After two weeks in limited release, »

Box office update: 'Ouija' scores with $8.3 million Friday

7 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Keanu Reeves is no match for a board game, it seems. After debuting in early Thursday night showings, Universal's spooky Ouija has earned an estimated $8.3 million, putting it on track for a $20 million weekend, while Lionsgate and Summit's John Wick took in an estimated $5.45 million, suggesting the violent revenge pic will net out around $14 million by weekend's close. While Ouija, which cost Blumhouse and Platinum Dunes less than $5 million to produce, is a resounding success, $20 million is a little less impressive than the standard Blumhouse fate. The Purge and The Purge: Anarchy, for instance, opened to $34.1 and $29.1 million respectively. This »

‘Ouija’ Box Office May Scare Up $20M, ‘John Wick’ No. 2 With A Bullet, Bill Murray Graces ‘St. Vincent’ – B.O. Weekend

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

2nd Update, Saturday 7:53 Am: This morning’s estimates are pretty much on the money with what we had last night with few exceptions. Ouija could actually pull off a $20M weekend for Universal and Blumhouse if their audiences hold today, and the Keanu Reeves’ actioner John Wick from Lionsgate will likely come in right around $15M, as we predicted. For a micro-budgeted film, this horror film — talking Ouija, not the ultra-violent John Wick — should end up yet another profitable horror entry for the studio despite its terrible, horrible, no good, very bad C CinemaScore. St. Vincent, in its expansion, is holding its own for The Weinstein Co. and Chernin Entertainment could end up with around $7.8M. With an A- CinemaScore, this dramedy with Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy headlining should continue to generate good word-of-mouth. The Michael Keaton comeback film Birdman could end the weekend with around a $28K »

‘Ouija’ Scares Up Box Office Win Ahead of Keanu Reeves’ ‘John Wick’

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

The supernatural thriller “Ouija” has summoned a box office win, ahead of Keanu Reeves’ actioner “John Wick.”

Universal’s séance pic scared up $8.3 million in the U.S. on Friday and has a weekend win in its future as it heads toward a $20 million opening. “John Wick” isn’t too far behind with $15 million, while Bill Murray’s comedy “St. Vincent” climbed into the top five as it expanded nationwide.

Directed by Stiles White and starring a crop of newcomers, including Daren Kagasoff and Olivia Cooke, “Ouija” centers on a group of teens who accidentally summon dark powers when attempting to make contact with a recently deceased friend.

It’s no surprise that the “Ouija” topped the box office, considering that Halloween is only a week away and that the film carries a PG-13 rating that broadens its appeal to its target audience of teens.

Box Office: ‘Ouija’ Sees Bright Weekend Ahead; ‘John Wick’ Looking Solid

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

With Halloween a week away, it isn’t too much of a surprise that Universal’s seance thriller “Ouija” should make contact with some decent ticket numbers at this weekend’s box office: Early estimates have it at $18 million or more, putting it ahead of the $15 million expected for the Keanu Reeves actioner “John Wick” from Lionsgate.

Ouija,” which is produced by Jason Blum and Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes, is the latest in the trend of low-budget horror and thriller projects, as it cost less than $5 million to make and cast still lesser-known names like Daren Kagasoff and Olivia Cooke. It also has a PG-13 rating, making it easier to market to teens looking for scary date-night fare. The strategy of opening before next weekend’s Halloween party blitz (and therefore, predicted empty movie theaters) also ensures more of a profit.

The weekend’s movies also offer choices for adults, »

“Ouija” spirited away with $911,000 at 2,061 theaters on Thursday night. Universal's board game-based film is expected to bring in $20 million at the box office this weekend, according to analysts.

Amy Poehler Has the Angelina Jolie of Vaginas and 6 Other Things We Learned

24 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

In her new memoir, Yes Please, Amy Poehler opens up about her childhood, her divorce from Will Arnett, and her own outstanding female anatomy. The book, which is a mix of personal stories, essays, advice, and plenty of memories from Saturday Night Live, is a hilarious yet tender look at the actress’ journey from the first time she she fell in love with improve (for the record, it was during her fourth grade performance of The Wizard of Oz) to fighting for the survival of Parks and Recreation.

Here’s what we learned about comedy’s fairy godmother:

Even Angelina Jolie would be jealous of Poehler’s… vagina.

When opening up about giving birth to her first son, Archibald, Poehler prefaced with an indisputable self-made proclamation about her anatomy. “I don’t consider myself beautiful or famous, but my vagina certainly is. Everyone knows this. I have the Angelina Jolie of vaginas. »

‘Ouija’ To Scare Up No. 1 At Box Office, ‘John Wick’ Another Test For Keanu – B.O. Preview

23 October 2014 11:55 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Ouija, another micro-budget pic from Blumhouse Prods., is likely to take the weekend, despite Universal keeping this one away from the critics (Danger, Will Robinson!). It opens tonight at 8 Pm in over 2,000 theaters before its Friday run of 2,857. Universal is thinking it could do high-teens, but the horror crowd comes out in force the first weekend and this one is appealing to teen girls and the Hispanic and African American sectors which tend to come out in groups to see films. Good news for this one, so if that happens, figure it could do anywhere from $20M-$24M. The audiences for horror films always seem to come out in force and then the drop-off comes the second weekend. But this second weekend will be Halloween.

Based on the Hasbro toy of the same name, Ouija had been in development for some time and back in 2008, it was originally envisioned as »

‘Ouija’ Board Predicts Box Office: Teen Thriller to Beat Brad Pitt, Keanu Reeves, Bill Murray

22 October 2014 11:31 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Moviegoers will get a jump on Halloween this weekend, when Universal rolls out its spooky board game adaptation “Ouija” on Friday. The teen-targeting PG-13 horror movie is expected to scare up around $20 million, say the analysts, and knock the Brad Pitt war saga “Fury” out of the top spot. Lionsgate's Keanu Reeves assassin thriller “John Wick” is projected to open just under $10 million, and the Bill Murray-Melissa McCarthy comedy “St. Vincent” should be in the same range in an aggressive nationwide expansion by the Weinstein Company.

Will Packer Developing A Female Buddy-Cop TV Show

22 October 2014 11:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Powerhouse movie producer Will Packer (Think Like A Man, About Last Night) has just sold his fourth series pitch under his company’s Universal Television deal, and it is an as-yet-untitled female buddy-cop show written by Amanda Lasher (Gossip Girl). With Lasher set to executive produce the show along with Packer, NBC have provided the creators with a script commitment.

Ccharacterizedas a “light” female cop show that centres on two Lapd homicide detectives trying to balance “messy” personal lives with their work on terrible crime scenes, the show seems to fall into a particular niche for the network that is currently poorly filled. While female-led drama – across the networks – boasts a vast array of strong characters, having those female characters lead a police-themed show as a pair is almost unheard of. Not since the days of Cagney And Lacey have we seen a cop show in which the female characters »

Bill Murray's ‘St. Vincent’ Expanding Wider Than Expected at Friday's Box Office

21 October 2014 1:57 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The Bill Murray-Melissa McCarthy comedy “St. Vincent” will be in more than 2,000 theaters as of Friday, the Weinstein Company's distribution chief Erik Lomis told TheWrap Tuesday. It's been in limited release for the past two weekends, initially in four locations and then 68 in its second, so this weekend's rollout is an unusually aggressive expansion. Also read: ‘St. Vincent’ Review: Bill Murray Wallows in Feel-Good Clichés “It's been playing really strongly, particularly in the suburbs, so we decided to go for it,” Lomis said. “There's not a lot like it out there in the marketplace, and the demand (from theater owners) was. »

Melissa McCarthy Discusses Ghostbusters Reboot

21 October 2014 5:11 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

When it was announced that Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat) will be directing the upcoming "Ghostbusters" reboot and that it will focus on a female team, it was immediately assumed that Melissa McCarthy would be one of the Ghostbusters. McCarthy is not only one of the most successful comediennes in Hollywood today, but she has done a total of three films with Feig. So if anyone is going to be cast in the "Ghostbusters" reboot, it will likely be McCarthy. The actress recently appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," where she revealed that she has yet to be cast. The other guest on the show, Lena Dunham, explained how important the "Ghostbusters" reboot is to Hollywood actresses. "I have to say, since I've heard that rumor, I think every lady in town who fancies herself a jokester wants in." McCarthy currently co-stars with Bill Murray in "St. Vincent." Not long ago, »
