Variety Lights Up London Honours Bash with 10 Brits to Watch

The BAFTA Awards weekend in London started early Thursday (Feb. 15) when the fourth annual Newport Beach U.K. Honours evening, which packed the ballroom of the Rosewood Hotel with celebrants, luminaries and awards season contenders. Industry leaders on hand to be feted in the celebration of U.K. film creative talent included Sir Patrick Stewart, Gurinder Chadha, Jason Isaacs, Mark Gatiss, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Celia Imrie, Andy Serkis, Eleanor Tomlinson and Simon Pegg.

Stewart drew laughs early with his topical observations about the Newport Beach enclave’s location inside California’s Orange County which he quipped, “was formerly a known bastion of conservative politics.” The “Star Trek” and “X-Men” star also made a plug for “X-Men” spinoff “Logan’s” contention in the Oscar best screenplay race.

“The voting is still open, so you still have a chance to recognize the film,” he said.

In his speech, Pegg waggishly made mention of his gratitude to his wife, who he explained

Box Office: ‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ Dominates With $62.6 Million Internationally
Fox’s “Maze Runner: The Death Cure” has dominated the international box office with $62.6 million from 34,374 screens, finishing first in 58 markets.

China posted the top figure with $21.6 million for a first-place finish, followed by Russia with $3.9 million, South Korea with $3.3 million in its second weekend, Indonesia with $3.1 million, the United Kingdom with $2.9 million and Brazil with $2.3 million. The dystopian sci-fi pic has topped $15 million in South Korea.

Fox said business for “The Death Cure” is outpacing 2015’s “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” by 7.6% and the original “Maze Runner” by 49.2%. “Death Cure” releases in 11 new markets next weekend, including Germany, Italy, Mexico, Belgium, and India.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure” ended the three-week reign of Sony’s “Jumanji: Welcome to the “Jungle” with a respectable $23.5 million at 3,787 North American locations for the weekend.

“The Death Cure” stars Dylan O’Brien, with Kaya Scodelario and Thomas Brodie-Sangster. The opening of the film was delayed for a year following injuries

Maze Runner 3 Dethrones Jumanji at the Box Office

Sony's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has dominated at the box office all month long, but, as expected, its reign came to an end this weekend, thanks to 20th Century Fox's The Maze Runner: The Death Cure. While it came in slightly under projections, the third installment in The Maze Runner trilogy based on the books by author James Dashner, took in an estimated $23.5 million, more than enough to take down Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which is still putting up strong numbers in its sixth frame in theaters, dropping just 15.9% to take in $16.4 million.

The Maze Runner: The Death Cure opened in 3,787 theaters, posting a solid $6,205 per-screen average. This movie continues the downward trend for this franchise, as the trilogy comes to an end. The Maze Runner opened in 2014, debuting with a $32.5 million opening weekend, with $102.4 million domestic and $348.3 million worldwide, from just a $34 million budget. The

Box Office: ‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ Overtakes ‘Jumanji’ With $22 Million

Fox’s “Maze Runner: The Death Cure” is set to knock “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” out of its first place slot at the box office, with $22 million from 3,787 North American locations.

The last installment in the “Maze Runner” series, “The Death Cure” stars Dylan O’Brien as a young man fighting for survival in a dystopian world. The film’s opening was delayed for a year after O’Brien sustained injuries on the set two years ago. Kaya Scodelario and Thomas Brodie-Sangster also star. Wes Ball has directed all three films.

Sony’s “Jumanji,” starring Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson, had maintained the top spot at the box office for the past three weekends after opening in second place behind “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” in December. The sixth weekend of “Jumanji” will likely finish at around $15 million at 3,553 sites, giving it $337 million domestically after 40 days — topping Sony’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” for 49th place on the

‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ to Outpace ‘Jumanji’ With $22 Million Weekend

‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ to Outpace ‘Jumanji’ With $22 Million Weekend
Fox’s “Maze Runner: The Death Cure” is heading for $22 million at 3,768 North American locations, dethroning three-time champ “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” early estimates showed Friday.

The sixth weekend of “Jumanji” will likely finish at around $14 million at 3,553 sites, giving it a stunning $335 million domestically after 40 days — topping Sony’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” for 49th place on the all-time list.

Five films are battling for third place in the $8 million to $10 million range: Fox’s sixth weekends of the sturdy musical “The Greatest Showman” and Steven Spielberg’s “The Post,” Warner Bros. second frame of Afghan war drama “12 Strong,” STXfilms’ second weekend of “Den of Theives” and Entertainment Studios expanded Christian Bale drama “Hostiles.”

The Maze Runner franchise has been a reliable performer for Fox since 2014 when it opened the original “Maze Runner” with $32.5 million on its way to grossing $102 million in U.S. receipts. The 2015 follow-up, “The Scorch Trials,” opened with $30 million

‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ Review

Stars: Dylan O’Brien, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Kaya Scodelario, Giancarlo Esposito, Rosa Salazar, Aidan Gillen, Walton Goggins, Ki Hong Lee, Barry Pepper, Will Poulter, Patricia Clarkson | Written by T.S. Nowlin | Directed by Wes Ball

This third and final entry in the Maze Runner franchise gives the Ya series a rousing send-off, stream-lining the books’ overly complex plot in favour of a succession of exciting action set-pieces. It might be a little too long at a posterior-troubling two hours and twenty minutes, but better that than splitting the third part of the trilogy into two movies, like certain other dystopian teen movies we could mention.

To its credit, Maze Runner: The Death Cure assumes audiences are already familiar with the events of 2014′s The Maze Runner and 2015′s The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, because otherwise, what are you doing here in the first place? To that end, the film opens in rip-roaring fashion,

Film Review: ‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ Has Run Out of Life

Chicago – The third part of the “Maze Runner” trilogy is called “The Death Cure,” and that cure best describes the faint pulse of this run-out-of-steam dystopia aimed at “young adults.” It is mostly warring and not much more, except for a stab (literally) at misplaced emotion.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

The trilogy started out with promise, as they are based on a novel series by James Dashner. The first film had a drawing-back-the-curtain effect, promising that perhaps the strange maze our heroes had to go through was some sort of mind experiment. But by the second film, that effect turned into a literal and bizarre adventure in a post-apocalyptic world, a kiddie “Mad Max.” The third installment continues the second film concept, and ups the ante. More big bang effects, more guns, more 20-year-olds-portraying-teenagers-as-virus-survivalists, and less of anything to really latch onto. This is the Maze Runner film for completists only.

‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ Sprints to $1.5 Million at Thursday Night Screenings

‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ Sprints to $1.5 Million at Thursday Night Screenings
Fox’s “Maze Runner: The Death Cure” opened solidly with $1.5 million at 2,860 North American locations in Thursday night preview screenings.

The launch compares to the $1.7 million from “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” from 2015 on its way to a $30 million opening. “The Death Cure” will expand to 3,768 sites Friday and should finish the weekend in first in the $20 million range — ending the three-week box office winning streak of Sony’s “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.”

Dylan O’Brien stars as the lead in the finale of the dystopian trilogy, which saw its opening delayed for a year after he sustained injuries on the set. The 2014 original opened with $32.5 million and grossed $102 million in U.S. receipts, and the 2015 follow-up “The Scorch Trials” tallied $82 million in domestic box office.

Kaya Scodelario and Thomas Brodie-Sangster also star. Wes Ball directed all three films.

'Maze Runner: The Death Cure' Review: Third Time's a Yawn for Ya Dystopia Series
On no, not more dystopia! The third and final chapter in the Maze Runner trilogy comes at a time when worst-case-scenario Ya sci-fi series seems redundant – why imagine terrible futures when we have Trump to remind us that the end of the world is coming? Still, completists will make sure that The Death Cure shows some life at the box office. Fans of the franchise's talented star Dylan O'Brien will want to see the 26-year-old actor return to home base after suffering a serious stunt-related injury while filming the sequel

Movie Review: Maze Runner: The Death Cure

Maze Runner: The Death Cure is a very good movie. It is the conclusion of the Maze Runner trilogy. In this movie, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his friends are trying to stop Wckd’s tortuous experiments. Along the way there are many surprises that make it more difficult for them to achieve their goal. We also see Teresa (Kaya Scodelario) working at Wckd, trying to find a cure.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure is based off the best-selling novel of the same name. I have not read the novel so I cannot say if it stayed true to the story. However, I enjoyed the movie and did not feel like I was missing anything. I do feel that the ending was a little confusing, but overall it was satisfying. At the end of the movie there are not many loose ends. However, it feels like Thomas may be planning something more.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure – Review

It’s kind of a slow month at the movies, so join me in a cinema experiment (cue Kenneth Strickfaden’s sparking, buzzing Frankenstein lab equipment). That’s because this weekend’s new flick is a real rarity for this time of year: a franchise entry. To be more precise, it’s the third part of a trilogy based upon (oh oh) a popular series of young adult novels (that sends a chill up my spine, only matched by the name “Nicholas Sparks”). And its setting is a most familiar backdrop for such stories, a dystopian future. The first one came out in 2014, followed a year later by the middle entry. But why the nearly three-year wait? Being “heavy” on the action stunts, the leading man was injured on the set, forcing a lengthy shut down. Will this derail its momentum? Well, generally January is the “multiplex graveyard” where franchise flicks come to die.

Second Opinion – Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018)

Maze Runner: The Death Cure, 2018.

Directed by Wes Ball.

Starring Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Aidan Gillen, Will Poulter, Rosa Salazar, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Giancarlo Esposito, Ki Hong Lee, Katherine McNamara, Walton Goggins, Nathalie Emmanuel, Barry Pepper, Jacob Lofland, Dexter Darden, Paul Lazenby, and Patricia Clarkson.

Synopsis:

Young hero Thomas embarks on a mission to find a cure for a deadly disease known as the “Flare”.

Piecing together plotting in young adult fiction is a puzzle aimed at six-year olds. There’s a chosen one; often an orphan/an outsider/amnesiac who obtains/is born with something with which a malevolent organisation/force/individual has to obtain/kill in order to create/halt destruction/peace through destruction.

With that, Maze Runner: The Death Cure, the much-delayed finale to the middling Ya franchise, once again falls under the paradigm of by the numbers youth fiction. In fact, its plot – a baffling, incessantly

Box Office: ‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ Races Toward $20 Million Opening
Fox’s launch of “Maze Runner: The Death Cure” is poised to end the three-week box office reign of “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” with about $20 million at about 3,800 North American locations.

The action thriller has already opened impressively in four markets overseas, starting with South Korea, Australia, and Taiwan taking in $15 million during its first weekend. The movie’s original release date was delayed for nearly a year in order to allow star Dylan O’Brien to recover from injuries sustained during shooting.

O’Brien stars in the dystopian trilogy as Thomas. The 2014 original opened with $32.5 million and grossed $102 million in U.S. receipts, and 2015 follow-up “The Scorch Trials” opened with $30 million and tallied $82 million in domestic box office.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure Review

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Stefan Pape

The release date for the third, and final instalment into the popular Maze Runner franchise had to be pushed back a year following the serious on-set accident involving the film’s leading star Dylan O’Brien. In turn, this Wes Ball endeavour feels even more timely, released at a time when as a society we seem more inclined to be building walls as opposed to breaking them down – injecting a greater deal of profundity to a narrative that gives the power to the disenfranchised.

You would have imagined that the Gladers had overcome their biggest puzzle yet, after they first arrived on the maze, desperate to find a way out – but it seems that they’re about to embark on a monumental task, in a bid to save their dearest friends from the clutches of Ava Paige (Patricia Clarkson) and Janson (Aidan Gillen).
