Big Highlights From The 89th Oscars – Moonlight, La La Land, Jimmy Kimmel, Viola Davis

10 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Barry Jenkins and Tarell Alvin McCraney poses backstage with the Oscar® for Adapted screenplay, for work on “Moonlight

“This is not a joke. Moonlight has won Best Picture. “Moonlight,” Best Picture [He holds up the card announcing the winner]”

After the “Cinderella, little-movie-that-could, made for only $1.5M with zero stars,”  won Best Picture at the 89th Oscars, Moonlight easily became our first pick of one of the many highlights from Sunday’s show.

Back in the pressroom director/producer Barry Jenkins said about the mixup, “No explanation. Things just happen, you know? But I will say I saw two cards. And so things just happen, you know? I did ‑‑ but ‑‑ and because ‑‑ I wanted to see the card to see the card. And Warren refused to show the card to anybody before he showed it to me. And so he did. He came upstairs, and he walked over to me, and he ‑‑ he showed the card. Everybody was asking, »

Stars React to Moonlight and La La Land Mix-Up, Oscar Accountants Apologize

16 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The ending of this year's Oscar telecast may go down as one of the most talked-about in history, as the wrong film, La La Land was announced as Best Picture. Bonnie & Clyde stars Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway reunited to present the final award, on the 40th anniversary of that classic film, but when Warren Beatty opened the envelope, he was surprised to discover that the envelope was actually for Best Actress, which Emma Stone had just won for La La Land moments earlier. The accounting firm of Price Waterhouse and Cooper issued a statement apologizing for this unfortunate error, while we have also compiled a number of tweets from celebrities as they watched this on-stage drama unfold. Take a look at the accounting firm's full statement below.

"We sincerely apologize to Moonlight, La La Land, Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during »

Oscars 2017: How La La Land Won Best Picture For Two Minutes

19 hours ago | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

If you watched the broadcast for the 89th Academy Awards, you were treated to a pleasant, if not long, ceremony that actually did a solid job of spreading the love between the films. Despite the momentum La La Land had this past year, it did not sweep the awards in an embarrassing fashion. However, no matter who you’d hoped would take the trophy at last night’s show, you could not have predicted what happened next.

The whole scene played out in a rather awkward fashion. Bonnie and Clyde co-stars Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty stood up on stage, ready to announce the honor of honors this year. Despite what you may have heard, Beatty was not at fault here, and it became increasingly evident as you watched the events unfold again and again. Beatty opened up the envelope, and looked at the card, slightly puzzled. He even looked »

Host Jimmy Kimmel made a valiant effort to smooth things over when he was closing the show, saying: “We hate to see people disappointed but the good news is we got to hear some extra speeches.”

Moonlight director Barry Jenkins said two winners cards caused the confusion:

Envelope-Gate: Twitter Hilariously Reacts to Bizarre Best Picture Mix Up at the Oscars

26 February 2017 10:04 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The Oscars ended on a bizarre note this year.

As Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway read out the Best Picture winner, there immediately seemed to be confusion. Beatty took out a piece of paper from the winner’s envelope, looked at it and checked in the red sleeve for more. After reading it a couple times and looking to the side of the stage as the crowd held their breath, Dunaway read out the supposed winner, La La Land.

But as the producers of the hit modern musical started accepting the award, show producers came onstage and told them that Moonlight had actually won, »

Will ‘Get Out’ Make Blumhouse the Pixar of Horror Filmmakers?

26 February 2017 1:12 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Get Out,” the low-budget horror hit that dominated the weekend box office, proves that it pays to be fiscally prudent and creatively risky. The story of a black man who finds himself preyed upon by liberal white suburbanites is a “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?” for our racially polarized time. It’s a film that uses scares as social commentary.

Writer and director Jordan Peele, previously best known for his work on Comedy Central’s “Key & Peele,” never expected a studio to greenlight his project. At a time of #blacklivesmatter and Trump, that kind of subversion just seemed too hot to handle.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Peele said that when he told producers that he had a cool pitch, he would always add, “The caveat is: No one will make this movie.’” Most studios would greet any non-superhero related proposal these days with a hard pass, »

Weekend Box Office: 'Get Out' Unseats 'Lego Batman' With Stellar $30.5M Debut

26 February 2017 7:13 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Jordan Peele's unique, race-conscious horror film Get Out peeled off an impressive $30.5 million debut at the North American box office over the weekend, toppling holdover The Lego Batman Movie from the top spot.

The movie marks Peele's feature directorial debut and is the second win in a row for Universal and Blumhouse after M. Night Shyamalan's Split, which has grossed $221.2 million globally since its Jan. 20 release.

Get Out, playing in 2,781 theaters and costing under $5 million to make, exceeded expectations after garnering a rare 100 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and »

‘Get Out’ Races to $10.8 Million Lead at Friday Box Office

25 February 2017 7:17 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Get Out” got off to a roaring start at the box office on Friday, racking up $10.8 million to claim the top spot at the box office after making $1.8 million in Thursday night previews. Universal Pictures, which conservatively projected Jordan Peele’s directorial debut to gross in the high teens this weekend, is now projecting a weekend total of $28 million, well above independent trackers’ pre-weekend projections of $24 million. “Get Out” continues what has been a great year for Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions, which enjoyed another terrifying box office hit last month with M. Night Shyamalan’s “Split.” That film made. »

24 February 2017 1:38 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jordan Peele’s horror-thriller “Get Out” is dominating the box office with an opening weekend of as much as $28 million at 2,773 North American locations, early estimates indicated Friday.

The second weekend of the historical saga “The Great Wall,” which carries a $150 million price tag, is dropping sharply from its $21 million opening over the four-day Presidents Day weekend, and will finish with about $8 million. Matt Damon stars in “Wall,” financed by Legendary and several Chinese partners. The film grossed over $170 million in China

Lionsgate Premiere’s “Rock Dog” will open with about $5 million at 2,077 sites, while Open Road’s actioner “Collide” is likely to finish with a diminutive $2 million at 2,045 sites.

24 February 2017 6:55 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jordan Peele’s horror-thriller “Get Out” has opened with an impressive $1.8 million at 2,240 sites in Thursday night preview screenings starting at 7 p.m.

Universal-Blumhouse’s thriller about a young African-American man’s visit to his white girlfriend’s estate is coming into the market amid strong critical support with a rare 100% “fresh” score on Rotten Tomatoes. “Get Out” expands to 2,773 North American theaters on Friday, where it’s expected to gross $18 million on its opening weekend and challenge the third weekend of “The Lego Batman Movie” for box office leadership.

Deadpool 2 start date leaked, Captain Marvel details, new Star Wars artwork and more – Daily News Roundup

Captain Hair-vel

It seems odd – to me at least – that one of the big talking points around Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel is less around her costume, tone and director, but the haircut she’ll sport in the film. The character has had a wide variety of cuts over the years, and Larson is under the impression that fans will not be happy with the choice they’ve made. “I can’t say anything,” she told IGN. “I feel like this is a big conversation and everyday I have people yelling at me on Twitter like you better have long hair, or you better have a mohawk, or you better wear the helmet, or you better not wear the helmet, so someone’s going to be mad.” Read more about that story here.

The Weekend Warrior 2/24/17: Get Out, Collide, Rock Dog

22 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.  

This Past Weekend:

Presidents' Day weekend was an interesting one at the box office, and as with most holiday weekends, it was particularly difficult to figure out how things might fare, other than The Lego Batman Movie, which remained at #1 with almost $45 million over the four-day weekend. Fifty Shades Darker followed with $21.3 million, about a 50% drop.  Last week, I thought that the Ice Cub comedy Fist Fight would beat The Great Wall, although it seemed like it could be a close race. Nope. Matt Damon’s action epic came in third place with $21.6 million, which is a couple million more than my original prediction, but The Fist Fight fell short of my prediction by almost $10 million, grossing $14.5 million in its first four days. »

TNT has released the first trailer for its upcoming reboot of the cult horror anthology series Tales from the Crypt, along with a featurette which sees executive producer M. Night Shyamalan discussing his plans for the show’s revival; take a look here…

Time of Death is planned as an anthology of season-long horror tales that unfold in real time – each one taking viewers hour-by-hour through a single “long night of hell.” The first season will follow a murderous psychopath who returns to his Midwestern hometown during the annual county fair to exact revenge on a community he believes destroyed his life.”

“Another Tales project now in development is Creatures, a sophisticated psychological thriller that tells the disturbing tale of two former best friends who, at 12 years old, tried to cut out their classmate’s heart as a sacrifice to an internet bogeyman they invented called Mr. Gorgi.

Get Out: Jordan Peele Explores Race With His Social Horror Flick

21 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

After many years establishing himself as a comedian--first on Mad TV and then teaming with that show’s Keegan--Michael Key for the equally successful Comedy Central show Key and Peele--Jordan Peele has decided to go behind the camera to make his directorial debut with the horror-thriller Get Out.

It stars Daniel Kaluuya (Sicario) as Chris Washington, whose girlfriend Rose Armitage (Allison Williams of Girls) wants to take their relationship to the next level by having him meet her parents, who she hasn’t told that her boyfriend is black. At first, it doesn’t seem to matter, but as they spend the weekend together at her parent’s remote house, they’re joined by family friends who are acting equally oddly around Chris.  As Chris tries to figure out what is happening, he is led down a dark path towards something quite malevolent and deadly.

Kevin Smith Reveals Why Clerks 3 And Mallrats 2 Will Never Happen

20 February 2017 5:45 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Over the past decade or so, Kevin Smith has had quite the interesting turn in his career. He had his start in the indie world back in the early 1990s with the foul-mouthed micro-budget movie Clerks. The movie went on to get purchased by Miramax, and thus began a career with more twists and turns than an M. Night Shyamalan film. As he made more films, they generally increased in budget bit by bit, and before long, Smith went the traditional Hollywood route with the 2004 movie Jersey Girl, which was an experience that left him a bit unhappy. With that negative experience behind him, he opted to head back to the View Askewniverse with Clerks II.

Smith went on to do many other films and projects, and for a while, it seemed like those characters were done. A couple years back, however, Smith floated the idea that he was working on Clerks III, »

‘The Great Wall,’ Isn’t: Why All Three President’s Day Releases Flopped

19 February 2017 12:55 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Great Wall” (Universal) fared best among the three new original debuts this week. But at $18 million, it fell short of what was needed to boost this very expensive Chinese production aimed at international markets (while making American audiences see it as nothing out of the ordinary).

Even so, it did better than the disappointing Ice Cube comedy “Fist Fight” (Warner Bros.) or Gore Verbinski’s disastrous “A Cure for Wellness” (20th Century Fox), which barely made the Top 10. But any heft came from decent holdovers from last weekend’s unprecedented trio of $30 million+ openers.

That’s the good news. The bad is this is a Top Ten that compares miserably with 2016, and represents a further decline in year-to-date totals. Even if they aren’t in actual free fall, they’re showing serious weakness.

Box Office: ‘Lego Batman’ Flies High Over ‘Great Wall,’ ‘Fist Fight’

19 February 2017 8:43 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Lego Batman Movie” is dominating the North American box office with an estimated $44 million this President’s Day weekend — nearly matching the combined haul of “Fifty Shades Darker” and “The Great Wall.”

Universal’s second weekend of “Fifty Shades” is heading for $24 million at 3,714 sites and its action-fantasy “The Great Wall” was projected to wind up with $21 million at 3,325 locations for the Friday-Monday period. Lionsgate’s second weekend of “John Wick: Chapter 2” is finishing in a solid fourth place with $19.5 million at 3,113 venues as holdovers propped up the holiday weekend business.

New Line’s opening of high school comedy “Fist Fight” showed only a modest punch in fifth with around $14 million at 3,185 locations. And Fox’s horror-thriller “A Cure for Wellness” was scaring up a modest $4.9 million at 2,704 screens as it was projected to finish 11th.

Samuel L. Jackson Teases His Involvement In Unbreakable 2

18 February 2017 2:26 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When M. Night Shyamalan’s Split arrived in theaters, it’s fair to say that audiences probably didn’t expect a whole lot from it. Fans of the director’s early work were in for quite a surprise though when it was revealed that the film actually took place in the same cinematic universe as Unbreakable, with Bruce WillisDavid Dunn even showing up near the end to tie it all together. With the origin story for James McAvoy’s villain now out of the way, it’s time to start looking ahead to what comes next, and according to the director himself, that’ll be Unbreakable 2 (or Split 2 – a title hasn’t been chosen yet).

Details on what the sequel will involve are scarce, as you can imagine, but we know that Shyamalan already has an outline ready and will be working with both Disney and Universal to bring his vision to life. »
