Insurgent set for $57 million+ Us opening, bigger than Divergent

9 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline has reported that the Divergent sequel, Insurgent, which is set for release at the end of March, looks likely to have a bumper opening weekend in the Us, with tickets sales up on the original.

Tickets for Insurgent went on sale earlier this week through Us ticket companies Fandango and MovieTickets.com, and early industry indications have the film heading for a $57 million three-day box office opening during its March 20th-22nd weekend. And while the estimates don’t include advance sales, industry tracking has the film above the $54 million opening weekend of Divergent on the same weekend last year.

Understandably, the film’s tracking is strongest amongst females, with 83% of awareness from females under-25, and  another 77% from teenagers between 12-16, with females again showing the main interest in the film.

Robert Schwentke (Red, The Time Traveller’s Wife) directs the sequel, which sees the return of Shailene Woodley, »

Mom's Allison Janney on Bonnie's 'Life and Death' Stakes After Alvin's Demise

26 February 2015 10:45 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

For two seasons now, Allison Janney has found big, unexpected laughs in Bonnie Plunket’s struggle for sobriety on CBS’ Mom.

This week, however, her character discovers a new type of intoxication: “Instead of getting drunk with alcohol,” Janney teases, “she gets drunk with her newfound power and status as secretary of her AA meeting.”

‘Insurgent’ On Track for Bigger Opening Than ‘Divergent’

26 February 2015 8:58 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Insurgent” is heading for a $57 million opening weekend, according to industry tracking.

If that number holds, the debut will be bigger than that of “Divergent,” the first film adaptation of Veronica Roth’s bestselling series of novels. That initial chapter in the futuristic franchise kicked off to $54.6 million last March, going on the make $150.9 million domestically and $288.7 million worldwide.

With nearly a month to go before “Insurgent” premieres on March 20, that opening figure could improve. It’s good news for Lionsgate, the studio behind the films, because the “Divergent” series is seen as a key part of its future given that this year brings the final installment in its lucrative “Hunger Games” series.

It’s possible that the stronger tracking is partially attributable to star Shailene Woodley’s higher profile after the success of “The Fault in Our Stars.” The romantic drama was a hit because it attracted many of »

Tris And Four Must Stand Together In Final Trailer For Insurgent

25 February 2015 12:52 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Earlier this month, the final trailer arrived for dystopian young adult sequel Insurgent. Except, it wasn’t the last one, because Summit has now dropped another minute-long preview ahead of the film’s March 20th release. As before, the flick stars Shailene Woodley as resilient teen Tris, who is now on the run with the hunky Four (Theo James). Now wanted fugitives, the pair will once more try to escape the clutches of Kate Winslet’s tyrannical leader, Jeanine.

Following original director Neil Burger’s exit, this second chapter in The Divergent Series is helmed by R.I.P.D.‘s Robert Schwentke. A direct follow-on from the first outing, Insurgent will trace Tris and Four as they are hunted down by those pesky Erudite elite. What’s paramount in this final teaser is that Tris’ newly-cropped haircut warrants its own special introduction, and that there will undoubtedly be more action, romance and brilliantly-bad one-liners from Winslet. »

Viola Davis Confirms That She Will Indeed Play Amanda Waller in 'Suicide Squad'

25 February 2015 6:27 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

An unconfirmed December 2014 report Tuesday from the folks at Latino Review (who've broken a number of stories in the past) stated that Viola Davis had been cast as Amanda Waller in Warner Bros.' 2016 "Suicide Squad" film adaptation. That has now been confirmed by the actress herself! She told etalk, during a red carpet interview at last weekend's Oscars, that she will indeed be playing Waller in the Warner Bros. project (watch the video at the bottom of this post). As previously reported, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Oprah Winfrey were said to be the studio’s top choices for the part. And as I said previously, of the 3, I'd run with Viola »

Watch: Stand Together In New Trailer For 'Insurgent' Starring Shailene Woodley

25 February 2015 6:01 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

So, is anyone excited for this sequel? Maybe I'm not talking to the right people or hanging out in the right places, but there seems to be decidedly smaller buzz for "Insurgent." Certainly, there is a fan base for this movie, one that coughed up over $285 million worldwide for "Divergent," but will those same people be back? And more importantly, will new people join the fold to make this franchise a bigger success? All questions that will be answered soon, but first, here's a new trailer. Shailene Woodley and Theo James are back in action, fighting for their lives and love, or something. And while I might fly the "whatevs" flag on this movie pretty hard, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't intrigued by the rather stacked supporting cast which includes Octavia Spencer, Jai Courtney, Ray Stevenson, Zoë Kravitz, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, Daniel Dae Kim, »

Shailene Woodley Is on the Run in Final 'Insurgent' Trailer (Video)

25 February 2015 3:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Things are heating up for Tris and her fellow outsiders in the latest and final trailer for "Insurgent."

In this sequel to "Divergent," Tris (Shailene Woodley) and her loverman Four (Theo James) are on the run from Jeanine Matthews (Kate Winslet), the head of the Erudite faction who's willing to kill Tris, Four, and anyone else who threatens the status quo. In between all the running and jumping and shooting, Tris takes a sec to cut off her long locks. "I wanted something different," she tells Four, and hey, who hasn't felt that way once in a while?

In addition to Woodley, James, and Winslet, we also get a peek at Octavia Spencer as Johanna, Miles Teller as Peter, and Naomi Watts as Evelyn.

"Insurgent" opens March 20.

How to Fix the Oscars in 5 Easy Steps

24 February 2015 3:23 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This year’s Oscars weren’t just a disappointment in terms of viewership — down 16%, with tepid reviews for host Neil Patrick Harris — it also speaks to a much larger problem for Hollywood. The Oscars are supposed to be a celebration of all facets of the movie-making business, but in recent years, the ceremony has started to feel more and more insular, like an employee-of-the-year celebration that happens to be televised for the entire world. The gap between the movies that win the Oscars (“Birdman” with its relatively small box office of $37 million) and movies that general audiences love to watch (“The Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Captain America 2,” etc.) continues to grow wider, which is why the ceremony is facing an identity crisis. Popular actors such as Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans attend only as presenters, while a mega-hit franchise like “The Hunger Games” has yet to receive a single Oscar nomination. »

Critics Debate the Best and Worst of the Oscars

23 February 2015 3:38 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Three Variety critics agree to disagree about Oscar winners and losers both onscreen and on the Dolby stage.

Peter Debruge: Last year, the Academy made a statement in giving the best picture award to “12 Years a Slave.” This time around, over the course of a spread-the-wealth evening, it was the winners’ turn to speak their minds, and they did so in force, using Hollywood’s prom as a podium to demand equal rights — for women (“Boyhood’s” only winner, Patricia Arquette), for African-Americans (Common and John Legend, accepting “Selma’s” only win), for gays (“The Imitation Game” writer Graham Moore, urging young Lgbt viewers to “stay weird, stay different” as he collected the film’s lone statue), for those with disabilities (both Julianne Moore and Eddie Redmayne turned the spotlight on talents who achieved while coping with Als), and for immigrants (Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, offering a plea on behalf of »

Outrage Watch, Oscars Edition: Everyone's mad at Patricia Arquette now

23 February 2015 2:54 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to a special Oscars edition of Outrage Watch, where we break down all the things folks are peeved about from last night's big show. Top story? Let the Patricia Arquette backlash begin. Did you catch the Best Supporting Actress winner's acceptance speech? Meryl Streep loved it! American was on her side, mostly. And then...she went backstage. “The truth is, even though we sort of feel like we have equal rights in America, right under the surface, there are huge issues that are applied that really do affect women," said the Best Supporting Actress winner to the assembled press corps. "And it’s time for all the women in America and all the men that love women, and all the gay people, and all the people of color that we’ve all fought for to fight for us now.” Hmm...maybe she just got caught up in the moment? »

5 Best and Worst Moments of Oscars 2015

23 February 2015 2:41 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The stars of the silver screen gathered at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood last night for The 87th Oscars ceremony, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris. Birdman emerged as the night's big winner, taking home four Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director (Alejandro Gonz&#225lez I&#241&#225rritu), Best Original Screenplay (Alejandro Gonz&#225lez I&#241&#225rritu, Armando Bo, Alexander Dinelaris, Nicol&#225s Giacobone) and Best Cinematography (Emmanuel Lubezki), with The Grand Budapest Hotel also taking home four Academy Awards for Best Costume Design, Best Makeup and Hairstyling, Best Production Design and Best Original Score. It was a rare year where all eight of the Best Picture nominees ended up taking home at least one award apiece, but for many viewers, the awards themselves weren't talked about nearly as much as the speeches, musical performances and other segments from the ceremony, which ran more than a half-hour longer than its allotted three-hour time slot. »

Oscars show: Almost 4 Hours…

23 February 2015 1:46 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Michael Russnow The Academy Awards for me was a surprise, notably in that I mostly enjoyed Neil Patrick Harris’ performance. In the past, when he’s hosted the Tonys and Emmys I’ve not always been impressed, perhaps because he tried too hard to show off skills that were adequate but not thrilling. At the outset, I thought here we go again, bland, so-so singing with not so catchy lyrics, though against a clever background of cinematic screen moments into which Harris injected himself. And when Anna Kendrick joined him in song, the disparity in vocal ability was apparent, not to mention the charisma factor, which was eclipsed when Jack Black bounded onto the stage in a funny moment. As the opening wound down, Harris was in much finer voice and his patter was often clever, in particular his bit about predictions in a locked box to be overseen by Octavia Spencer. »
