58th BFI London Film Festival Review – The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them (2014)

28 October 2014 1:26 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them, 2014.

Written and Directed by Ned Benson.

Starring James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Viola Davis, Nina Arianda, Bill Hader, Ciarán Hinds, William Hurt, Isabelle Huppert and Jess Weixler.

Synopsis:

One couple’s story as they try to reclaim the life and love they once knew and pick up the pieces of a past that may be too far gone.

For those who prefer their romantic films to be sappy, cheesy, mushy, schmaltzy, written by Nicholas Sparks or Stephanie Meyer be warned: The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them may not tickle your taste buds. Not because it’s a bad film by any means, far from it, but because Ned Benson’s tale of love and loss in New York may well put you off rom-coms for good, and make you reassess everything you know and love about the genre.

Somewhat strangely, Eleanor Rigby is a film »

‘Ouija’ Says Yes To $19.8M, ‘John Wick’ Chases In $14.4M, ‘St. Vincent,’ $7.7M Blessing – Final B.O. Weekend

27 October 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Final Update, Monday, 2:25 Pm: The finally tallies are in with Universal’s horror film Ouija and the Keanu Reeves’ actioner John Wick winning the No. 1 and No. 2 spots, respectively. St. Vincent, which went wide, did okay for The Weinstein Co. With terrific exit polling, it should get some more play. In their second weekends, Sony/Qed’s Fury held well (-44%) as did Fox’s animated The Book of Life (-41%). Relativity’s The Best of Me wasn’t as lucky (-54%). Noteworthy: We’ve included the grosses for the Bollywood heist film Happy New Yea from our own sources as Rentrak did not report for it. There are still no official numbers for the the film which we know tallied biggest opening weekend in Indian Cinema history (per its producer). Strange as to why they are not touting the numbers and reporting them as soon as possible, but »

Box Office Weekend: No One Predicted Oujia Win

27 October 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Critics did not like it. Audiences did not like it. And yet, thanks most likely to its status as one of the few spooky flicks to enjoy during the Halloween season, Ouija took the box office crown with an estimated $20 million. It was still not good news for an overall dipping box office trend, as second place went to the new (and much better received) John Wick. Keanu Reeves made good with an estimated $14.2 million start and good word of mouth, but along with Ouija had no reported budget numbers, so whether Reeves finally has a winner on his hands is undetermined.

Fury (estimated $13 million), Gone Girl (estimated $11.1 million), and The Book of Life (estimated $9.8 million) all stayed in roughly the same positions, if only pushed down by new releases, but only Gone Girl is a winner and the highest earner in the current top ten. Fury and The Book of Life »

Nicholas Sparks On 'Best Of Me,' Working With James Marsden [Exclusive]

21 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Nicholas Sparks, who has penned a number of best-selling novels that have been adapted for the big screen, has most recently been promoting the adaptation of The Best of Me, starring James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan.

Nicholas Sparks On 'The Best of Me'

In The Best of Me, Dawson (Marsden) and Amanda (Monaghan) are high school sweethearts, now in the their forties, who find themselves falling back into each others arms. Part of Sparks’ inspiration to tell this particular love story was the uniqueness of being a person in his or her 40s, a decade that exists in an inbetween of sorts.

“I just think the 40’s are a very interesting decade,” Sparks told uInterview exclusively “The 40s is like this period where you’re shifting from one to the other. At the same time, I think that brings with it all sorts of great questions. The ‘what if’ questions of life, »

Box Office Actuals: 'Fury' On Top, 'Birdman' Opens Huge and 'Best of Me' is Worst of the Sparks

20 October 2014 2:33 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Fury dropped only a fraction once actuals came in, topping the weekend box office with $23.7 million. With an "A-" CinemaScore it could push to up around $75 million or so domestically, but I'm not sure I'd hold my breath. It will also be interesting to see how it plays internationally. Having Brad Pitt in the cast certainly helps, but is the international audience all that interested in following an American tank crew through the final days of World War IIc Gone Girl only dropped 33.7% for a strong third weekend result of $17.5 million, just barely topping the animated The Book of Life, which stuck to its $17 million estimate once actuals came in. Then down in fifth is The Best of Me, the worst opening for a Nicholas Sparks adaptation in nine tries, but don't expect that to stop them from making more as both "The Choice" and "The Longest Ride" are already in production, »

Final: ‘Fury’ Wins Box Office War With $23.7M; ‘Book Of Life’ At $17M; ‘Gone Girl’ $100M+; ‘Best Of Me’ $10M – B.O. Final

20 October 2014 1:32 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Final Update, 1:32 Pm: Fury ended the weekend at $23.7M for Sony and Qed, so it underperformed all the tracking (gee what a surprise), social media metrics, and expectations just a little. But it will likely still make money all in after its domestic, international and home entertainment run. I understand that there were significant profit participations on this one. Fox and Reel FX’s The Book Of Life closed the weekend on the high end of our estimate with $17M and will have some playtime again over the next two weekends as no new offerings are in the family zone until Big Hero 6 bows from Disney on November 7. The other newbie, Relativity’s The Best Of Me, was soft with $10M. Gone Girl is now sitting pretty at $106.7M after three weeks in release for Fox and New Regency.

20 October 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The bloody World War II drama Fury blew past Gone Girl at theatres this weekend.

Gone Girl was tops at the box office for two weeks before Brad Pitt and his rag-tag group of tank mates in Furyblasted the film to second place.

Were Brad Pitt And Shia Labeouf Really A Couple In Fury?

20 October 2014 9:36 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Many of you packed theaters across the country this weekend to see Brad Pitt lead a small platoon of soldiers across Nazi Germany in David Ayer.s tank drama, Fury. The gritty combat thriller earned enough to hold of David Fincher.s Gone Girl and claim the top spot at the box office. But how many of you watching Fury over the weekend noticed a relationship unfolding on screen that many thought was far more romantic than the one happening next door in the Nicholas Sparks adaptation, The Best of Me? David Ayer has been describing Fury as the "study of a family" (according to HuffPo), only one that happens to live in a World War II tank. Yet, some coming out of Fury noticed a different dynamic between Brad Pitt and the introverted, God-fearing soldier played by Shia Labeouf in the film. Is it possible these two men had »

Ranking Every Nicholas Sparks Movie Couple, from Pathetic to Passionate

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

While we’ve pretty much established all Nicholas Sparks films are the same, the one factor that truly sets them apart is the chemistry between the lead actors. Sure, we could watch attractive people kissing in the rain, hair blowing in the wind during a slow embrace on the sandy shores of North Carolina all day, but if the passion isn’t there, we ain’t buying it.

As the author’s latest book-to-film venture The Best of Me is currently in theaters, only time will tell where James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan fall on the spectrum of believable couples in Sparks’ movie repertoire.

Of course, not all silver screen couples can be up to par with Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams‘ perfectness in The Notebook. The two couldn’t stand each other at first on set, and they were still the most heart wrenching on screen. Take note from »

Box Office: 'Birdman' and 'St. Vincent' Soar in Limited Release

20 October 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Michael Keaton and Bill Murray haven't been box office heavyweights for ages, but at the art-house, both men are setting ticket sales on fire, with "Birdman" and "St. Vincent," respectively. During what proved to be a ho-hum weekend for mainstream, wide-release movies, led by Brad Pitt's underperforming "Fury," Keaton and Murray were among the stars packing them in at the indie theaters.

Overall, the North American box office was down 13 percent from last weekend, despite three eagerly awaited new wide releases. PItt's World War II action drama was in the lead, but while pundits had expected it to open as high as $33 million, it finished at an estimated $23.5 million. Despite good reviews, strong word-of-mouth (it earned an A- grade at CinemaScore) and the presence of Pitt, "Fury" did not pull as many older men away from baseball playoffs as expected.

Opening in third place, a hair behind three-week old "Gone Girl, »
