'Miss Peregrine', 'Deepwater Horizon' and 'Masterminds' Close Out September

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

When compared to last year, September 2016 has been a bit of a rough and tumble month. While there have been a pair of $30+ million openers, there have also been more than a fair share of disappointments. This weekend closes out the month with two new big budget releases in the form of Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and Peter Berg's Deepwater Horizon, both hoping to make a case for their price tag while the long-delayed ensemble comedy Masterminds finally hits theaters after enduring six release date changes over the past 18 months. Overall, the weekend is once again looking to underperform compared to the same weekend last year, which saw The Martian top the box office with $54 million. At the top, Tim Burton returns to work at Fox for the first time since 2001's Planet of the Apes remake and he does so with Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, »

Film Review: Masterminds

9 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Stories of great heists start with a bang and end with a whimper. But in Masterminds, a comedy based on the true story theft of an armored vehicle by incompetent robbers to the tune of $17 million, it begins with the usual plot devices: a voice over narrator, slow-motion shots for comedic effect, and a girl. And it closes not with a whimper but with title cards, pictures of the real life baddies, and comedic outtakes for good measure. Hollywood has done another of its numbers on a middling tale, and not in a good way.

The girl in question is Kelly, played with unusual quietness by Kristen Wiig, and the hapless lover is David Scott Ghant, portrayed by Zach Galifianakis sporting pageboy bangs. Ghant works at an armored vehicle company with Kelly, and falls hard for her. After she introduces Ghant to swindler Steve Chambers, the expectably soft-spoken Owen Wilson, »

Masterminds Review

10 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Masterminds is the summation of the strangest cinematic formula imaginable. You know director Jared Hess from such quirkiness as Napoleon Dynamite and Don Verdean, which he wrote alongside his wife Jerusha. You’ve witnessed how far off the beaten path his vision wanders, and you’ve probably sat there dumbfounded by the likes of Napoleon’s family and Nacho Libre. So what does Relativity Media do with such an individualistic filmmaker, who seems more comfortable writing his own material? Give him a ready-made script penned by three fairly fresh writers, cast A-list names and attempt to restrain Hess’ awkwardness for mainstream success. What could possibly go wrong?

Well, much like the actual bank heist Hess’ film is based on, everything.

Zach Galifianakis stars as Loomis Fargo security guard David Ghantt, who’s described as the lovechild of “Kenny Rodgers and Kenny Loggins.” His dreams of an exciting professional career that »

Movie Review – Masterminds (2016)

11 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Masterminds, 2016.

Directed by Jared Hess.

Starring Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Jason Sudeikis.

Synopsis:

A night guard at an armored car company in the Southern U.S. organizes one of the biggest bank heists in American history.

Masterminds was originally set to release in August of last year, but those plans fell through due to a bankruptcy within the film’s distributor, although honestly the fact that the movie is now releasing in the month of September a little over a year later might actually benefit its box office performance, as the movie actually co-stars 3/4 of the Ghostbusters reboot (Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones). And trust me, this movie is going to need all the help it can get to be a success, especially on a weekend with four other movies coming out.

This will probably surprise you considering the absurd jokes found in the trailers, »

Film Review: ‘Masterminds’

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

Arguably the most outrageous line in the consistently bonkers heist comedy “Masterminds” occurs just four minutes in, after Zach Galifianakis, playing an armored-truck driver with an overgrown beard and Little Lord Fauntleroy haircut, shoots a hole in his shorts when ineptly trying to holster a handgun in his waistband. It is then that director Jared Hess (making his funniest film since “Napoleon Dynamite”) flashes the words “Based on a true story” across the screen. Sure enough, as crazy as the details can get, the basic facts of how a handful of rednecks stole, squandered, and were ultimately forced to surrender nearly $17 million in Loomis Fargo loot are true, making for a movie that will leave many gawking in disbelief — and the beleaguered Relativity laughing all the way to the bank.

At least, that would have been the case had this legitimately funny movie co-produced by “Saturday Night Live’s” Lorne Michaels »

'Masterminds': Film Review

11 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Dumb criminals and their bad ’90s taste are the objects of affectionate ridicule in Masterminds, director Jared Hess’s predictably cartoonish spin on a true story. The real-life farce known as the “hillbilly heist,” one of the largest and most improbable cash hauls in American crime history, unfolds as a scattershot collection of caricatures and gags. The emphasis on skit-style moments may be miscalculated, but it’s no surprise given the SNL pedigree of a number of cast members and Lorne Michaels’ involvement as producer. Leads Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig and Jason Sudeikis bolster the hit-and-

Review: Masterminds

Plot: An armored car driver (Zach Galifianakis) is convinced to rob his employer by a former colleague (Kristen Wiig), who he has a crush on. The robbery ends-up being the biggest in U.S history, with $17 million stolen. When he goes on the lam in Mexico, one of his cohorts (Owen Wilson) starts spending money, and hires a professional killer (Jason Sudeikis) to tie-up loose ends. Review: Masterminds is another...

‘Masterminds’ Review: Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig and More Can’t Save This Painfully Unfunny Heist Film

15 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There’s a pretty good heist story buried underneath the muddled, sloppy mess that is “Masterminds.” After all, the film is based on the true story of the 1997 Loomis Fargo robbery, in which an employee of the armored truck company attempted to make off with nearly $20 million in a daring (and daringly stupid) act of criminal inspiration. Jared Hess’ film, his followup to the critically maligned “Don Verdean,” is so deeply unfunny that it’s probably wise to imagine what could have been. Despite a stacked cast of typically reliable talent, including Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudeikis, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Owen Wilson, Hess’ feature is practically anti-comedy, a punishing 94-minute endurance test with nearly zero return.

Despite the zany nature of the story, much of the screenplay (from Emily Spivey, Chris Bowman and Hubbel Palmer) sticks to the facts of the wild tale of the criminally ill-fated »

Box Office: ‘Deepwater Horizon’ No Match for Tim Burton’s ‘Miss Peregrine’s’

28 September 2016 2:14 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tim Burton has had a rough spell at the box office. “Big Eyes” was an Oscar contender that failed to grab any gold, “Frankenweenie” was a bridge too bizarre for family crowds, and “Dark Shadows,” starring Johnny Depp, revived a campy ’70s show that most of America had forgotten. Burton, once a reliable purveyor of popcorn hits, hasn’t scored since 2010’s “Alice in Wonderland.”

But the director of “Batman” and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” is on firmer ground with “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” an adaptation of the best-selling novel about a young boy who is taken in by an orphanage populated by children with extraordinary powers. It’s mixture of the magical and the macabre seems a perfect fit for Burton’s quirky sensibility. The film is expected to open in first place, with roughly $26 million when it debuts in 3,520 locations. Fox is distributing the film, »

The Weekend Warrior 9/30/2016: Deepwater Horizon, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Masterminds

28 September 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview 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:

 While the new movies reigned at the box office this past weekend, both Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven (Sony) and the animated Storks (Warner Bros.) didn’t fare nearly as well as our projections, both falling short by about $10 million. The Magnificent Seven, starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt, fared decently with $34.7million, which is about the average for Washington’s films, but the fourth highest opening for a Western after last year’s The Revenant, the animated Rango, and Cowboys and Aliens. Storks’ $21.3 million opening wasn’t great compared to other animated September releases with Sony still holding the September opening record with Hotel Transylvania 2, but it should continue to do well with no other animated movies opening for another month. »

Win Passes To The Advance Screening Of Masterminds In St. Louis

27 September 2016 12:16 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In this action comedy based on true events, directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite; Nacho Libre), David Ghantt (Zach Galifianakis) discovers the true meaning of adventure far beyond his wildest dreams. He is an uncomplicated man stuck in a monotonous life. Day in and day out he drives an armored vehicle, transporting millions of other people’s money with no escape in sight. The only glimmer of excitement is his flirtatious work crush Kelly Campbell (Kristen Wiig) who soon lures him into the scheme of a lifetime.

Along with a group of half-brained criminals led by Steve Chambers (Owen Wilson) and an absurdly faulted heist plan, David manages the impossible and makes off with $17 million in cash…only problem is he foolishly hands the money over to this wild group of double crossers and has been set up to take the fall. With the bandits blowing the millions on lavish and ridiculous luxuries, »

Can Miss Peregrine Beat Magnificent Seven at the Box Office?

27 September 2016 10:11 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

September has proven to be quite the difficult month for box office predictions, with three newcomers under-performing two weeks ago, and last weekend's winner The Magnificent Seven over-performing to win with $34.7 million. This weekend, three newcomers arrive to close out the month, 20th Century Fox's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, Lionsgate's Deepwater Horizon and Relativity's Masterminds. Only one can take home the box office crown, and we're predicting that movie will be Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

Box Office Mojo reports that Miss Peregrine will debut in roughly 3,400 theaters this weekend, with Deepwater Horizon opening in an estimated 3,000 theaters while Masterminds is set to open in roughly 2,800 theaters. While there is no Rotten Tomatoes score for Masterminds, both Miss Peregrine (62% Fresh) and Deepwater Horizon (89% Fresh) are faring quite well with the critics thus far. We're predicting that Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children will come out on top this weekend with $32.4 million. »

‘Masterminds’ Premiere: Ryan Kavanaugh ‘Relieved’ at Relativity’s Post-Bankruptcy Coming Out Party

26 September 2016 11:03 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Almost 18 months since Relativity’s last film premiere — and the start of a bankruptcy saga that captivated show business — an emotional Ryan Kavanaugh held a glitzy party for the comedy “Masterminds” on Monday in Hollywood. The heist movie starring Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig, Luke Wilson and Jason Sudeikis was originally set for release in August of last year, and the mini-major’s Chairman and CEO acknowledged how many thought it would never see the light of day. “A lot of people said this would never come out,” Kavanaugh told TheWrap at the film’s after party at Hollywood’s Roosevelt Hotel. »

Relive Last Man on Earth's Mad Men Reunion With a Delightful Jon Hamm Photo From Behind the Scenes

26 September 2016 8:41 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Last Man on Earth has gifted us with the brilliance of a well-timed completely random celebrity cameo before. Remember Will Ferrell? But the season three premiere was so totally unexpected and out of left field that we're still laughing at the absurdity of it all. Remember at the end of the season 2 finale, when three intruders stormed off a boat and headed toward the house? Well, turns out two of those faces are very familiar. The first one was Mark Boone's Pat Brown, a.k.a. the paranoid dude Mike (Jason Sudeikis) first encountered when he landed back on Earth. The second one? Because he was played by none other than Jon Hamm. But the Mad Men reunion didn't last long, considering January Jones' »

‘Crisis in Six Scenes’ Review: Woody Allen Takes the Money and Bombs in TV Debut

26 September 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

There’s a scene in the third episode of “Crisis in Six Scenes” in which Woody Allen’s character, Sidney “S.J.” Mussinger, sits down to pitch a TV series to a couple of network executives. Mussinger is a published novelist in good standing, if not high demand, who’s been convinced to try his hand at television because of its lucrative financial rewards. So in he goes, wide-eyed and eager, with nothing but thinly sketched out characters open to a “myriad” of possibilities. The pitch is…interesting, though it’s hard to fault the executives for checking their watches and staring skeptically at Mussinger, unclear as to why he’d think this series about a family of cavemen would be fit for modern audiences.

Perhaps these are the executives who should’ve heard the pitch for “Crisis in Six Scenes.”

To say “Crisis in Six Scenes” is a disaster would be an overstatement. »
