The latest edition of The Hunger Games franchise predictably dominated ticket sales at Australian cinemas last weekend although the opening was fractionally below the previous edition.
The action thriller starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth accounted for a whopping 68% of the entire national B.O. of $17.4 million which, by sheer co-incidence, was up 68% on the previous weekend, according to Rentrak.
Mature folks who were not interested in either blockbuster turned up to see Maggie Smith and Kevin Kline bicker and banter in My Old Lady, which fetched $380,000 in its second weekend on 94 screens, dropping by 22%, bringing its tally to $1.12 million. »

Set in a fantasy world where witches and colossal creatures roam the lands, the film stars Jeff Bridges and Ben Barnes as a duo taking on evil of all shapes and sizes, as evidenced in the film’s new international trailer.
“In a time of enchantments when legends and magic collide, the sole remaining warrior of a mystical order (Oscar® winner Jeff Bridges) travels to find a prophesized hero born with incredible powers, the last Seventh Son (Ben Barnes). Torn from his quiet life as a farmhand, the unlikely young hero embarks on a daring adventure with his battle-hardened mentor to vanquish a dark queen (Julianne Moore) and the army of supernatural assassins she has dispatched against their kingdom. »

Like a phoenix rising very slowly and wearily from the ashes, fantasy adventure Seventh Son will soon land in theatres. After a very lengthy stint on the shelf following the Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures divorce, its new owners, Universal, have cobbled together an international trailer. The question is, though, will it outshine the somewhat hit and miss efforts of the last preview?
Early talk surrounding the epic, which is directed by Sergei Bodrov, has revolved around its addiction to genre conventions. Warriors, CGI monsters, dodgy accents, and dingy clothing are a few of the typical fantasy tropes that the pic is harnessing to ensnare audiences. If we’re to throw this international trailer into that mix, it seems Universal are attempting to capitalise on the success of Game Of Thrones. But without the cunning, genius or creativity.
To be honest, it’s a damn shame these teasers don’t seem »

They're making a "gadget," one that they hope will save the world ... but fear will actually destroy it someday. In Manhattan, Wgn's new World War II drama about scientists racing to develop an atomic bomb while grappling with the threat of espionage and the equally undermining power of egos, has just finished its first season, and the network is re-running all 13 episodes this Sunday, Oct. 26, in one marathon showing starting at 11 a.m. Et (8 a.m. Pt.) For those who are already fans, it's a chance to revisit those earlier episodes and catch little hints and Easter eggs that become »

Implosion. Pre-detonation. Radioactivity. Meltdowns. The terms that define Wgn’s atomic bomb drama Manhattan also apply to its characters, a mix of men and women trying to stop a world war by creating a weapon that could destroy the planet completely. There isn't a simple equation among them. Throughout season one, which came to an end Sunday night with its thirteenth episode (“Perestroika”), the show mastered the art of contradiction, presenting heroes you root for even as they betray their own better natures. In the finale, the scientists of Los Alamos are still far from the breakthroughs they will need »

Though its viewership has been quite small, Manahattan has been renewed for a second season on Wgn America. The period TV show's first season finale airs this Sunday night.
Set in 1943, Manhattan follows the residents of a secret town of Los Alamos, New Mexico. Hidden away by the federal government, scientists live there with their families while they work to build the world's first atomic bomb. The cast includes John Benjamin Hickey, Olivia Williams, Alexia Fast, Ashley Zukerman, Rachel Brosnahan, Daniel Stern, Katja Herbers, Christopher Denham, Harry Lloyd, Michael Chernus, Eddie Shin, Daniel London, and Mark Moses.
The 11 episodes that have aired so far have averaged a 0.08 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 420,000 viewers. The cable channel is still very new to producing their own scripted series so likely has low expectations at this point.
What do »
A new TV show's opening credits sequence is often one of the last things completed, and therefore something critics don't always get to see before a show debuts. I don't know that the title sequence for "Manhattan" — which Wgn America just renewed for a second season — would have significantly upgraded my initial review of the show, but it does a nice job of suggesting the level of ambition and execution the show would be able to achieve over the course of its first season, which concludes Sunday night at 9. That title sequence (you can watch it here) presents an overhead view of a series of sketches and diagrams, as the military base that housed the Manhattan Project is rapidly constructed in the Los Alamos desert. We start with some solitary workmen, then blueprints of houses, then the houses themselves, with plans being mixed with physics equations and desert recipes and propaganda fliers, »

Ahead of its first season finale, Manhattan has been renewed for a second season, EW has learned. The series, which explores the race to build the world’s first atomic bomb, has averaged 1.2 million total viewers during its first season. Hailing from creator Sam Shaw and director Thomas Schlamme, the drama stars Benjamin Hickey, Olivia Williams and Daniel Stern. “Manhattan represents the kind of high-quality original series we aim to deliver at Wgn America, and we couldn't be more thrilled with the show’s widespread critical acclaim and its loyal audience," Wgn America President and General Manager Matt Cherniss said. »

David Cronenberg has claimed that all his films are comedies.
He admitted that they may not follow the "traditional definition of a comedy" but he considers there to be a "humorous aspect" to every project.
"At Cannes, someone said, 'Have you ever considered making a comedy?'" the veteran filmmaker told Vulture.
"And I said, 'I've done nothing but'. Not maybe the traditional definition of a comedy, where it ends with a feel-good kind of thing, but for me, there is an observed and humorous aspect to the human condition and, of course, exploring the human condition is really what art is about.
"And I can't imagine not having humour be part of it. I just can't imagine it."
