Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Breaking Dawn Steven Spielberg/Jeremy Irvine/War Horse Opens Strongly; Cameron Crowe/Matt Damon/Scarlett Johansson/We Bought A Zoo Disappoints: Box Office Rounding out the top ten at the domestic box office this Christmas weekend was Amy Adams-Jason Segel's The Muppets with $2.14m according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. And that means Bill Condon's The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner, went the way of its three predecessors: David Slade's The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Chris Weisz's The Twilight Saga: New Moon, and Catherine Hardwicke's Twilight were all gone from the top-ten chart after five weekends. What's most surprising is how far down on the chart Breaking Dawn landed: no. 16 (both for the tree-day and the four-day weekend periods). Summit has lowered the film's estimates from $2.1m to $1.52m »

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Breaking Dawn Cameron Crowe/Matt Damon/Scarlett Johansson/We Bought A Zoo Disappoints, David Fincher/Daniel Craig/Rooney Mara/The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Passable: Box Office The no. 7 movie this Christmas weekend at the domestic box office will surely be Steven Spielberg's War Horse, which, as mentioned in part I of this three-part box-office article, is expected to gross close to $7 million on opening day — today. In addition to its four-legged star(s), War Horse features Jeremy Irvine, two-time Oscar nominee Emily Watson, Thor's Tom Hiddleston, Peter Mullan, Niels Arestrup, David Thewlis, Benedict Cumberbatch, Toby Kebbell, David Kross, Celine Buckens, Patrick Kennedy, Robert Emms, and Eddie Marsan. Sunday's other wide release, The Darkest Hour, an apocalyptic sci-fi thriller, isn't expected to make much of a splash at the box office despite showings at 2,324 locations. In fact, there's a good chance it won't »

Patrick Fugit, Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson, We Bought a Zoo David Fincher/Rooney Mara/Daniel Craig's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo to Surpass Swedish Original's Total Gross Over One Weekend: Box Office Despite the presence of Matt Damon, one of the most likable actors around, and former Woody Allen muse Scarlett Johansson, on Friday, Dec. 23, the kiddie-oriented We Bought a Zoo brought in a mere $3 million, landing at no. 6 on the North American box-office chart according to early, rough estimates found at both The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline.com. Directed by Cameron Crowe, who has been luckier with Tom Cruise (Jerry Maguire, Vanilla Sky), and distributed by 20th Century Fox, We Bought a Zoo is expected to gross less than $8 million at 3,117 locations over the three-day weekend. Memories of the tragic, bloody slaughter of dozens of wild animals in Ohio a few weeks ago — the animals had been »

Andy Serkis as Captain Haddock, The Adventures of Tintin David Fincher/Rooney Mara/The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Has Good (Not Great) Opening Day: Box Office With Tom Cruise performing impossible stunts in Brad Bird's live-action Mission: Impossible IV – Ghost Protocol, Tintin's motion-captured stunts in Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn may look a tad less compelling. At least in English-speaking North America. Whereas The Adventures of Tintin has grossed $239 million overseas, in the Us/Canada the adventure tale featuring the intrepid Belgian hero opened with a disappointing $2.3 million on Wednesday, Dec. 21, according to figures found at Box Office Mojo. (Tintin had already earned about $3.2 million in Quebec, where it opened on Dec. 9.) Tintin's top foreign market is France, where it has pulled in $53m; it's currently the fourth biggest 2011 release in that country, after local box-office hits Intouchables and Nothing to Declare, »

Breaking Dawn movie: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart on Isle Esme It's the holiday season, filled with joy and happiness and kinky vampire sex. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, starring Robert Pattinson as the lovestruck vampire Edward Cullen, Kristen Stewart as the vampire-impregnated human Bella Swan Cullen, and Taylor Lautner as the vampire-phobic werewolf Jacob Black, passed the $650 million mark at the worldwide box office last weekend after earning $8.7 million overseas and $4.19 million in North America. The latest Twilight movie is now well on its way to the $700 million mark. Breaking Dawn 1 has collected an estimated $391.4 million internationally up until Sunday, December 18, in addition to $266.97 million in the United States and Canada up until Monday, December 19, for a grand total of $658.37 million. Considering that Breaking Dawn has yet to open in mid-size Twilight markets such as Japan and Hong Kong, and that the Christmas and New Year holidays are just around the corner, »

Almost two weeks ago, we brought you the first trailer for director Luc Besson‘s (Taken) Sci-Fi/Drama entitled, Lock-Out, starring Maggie Grace (Faster) and Guy Pearce (Animal Kingdom). Now, FilmDistrict has released a new International trailer for the sci-fi thriller.
Apparently the studio has decided to change the name of the film to Ms One: Maximum Security, or it’s being retitled for different film markets and will still be called Lock-Out here in the U.S., we’re not entirely sure. Anyway, check out the trailer below!

The silver lining at the North American box office this weekend is the Brad Bird/Tom Cruise $140 million-budgeted combo Mission: Impossible IV – Ghost Protocol, which has raked in an impressive, IMAX-boosted $4.6 million — including $1m from Thursday midnight showings — at only 425 locations (300 of which IMAX theaters). As per The Hollywood Reporter, Ghost Protocol should bring in $12 million by Sunday evening. If so, that would represent an outstanding, even considering the IMAX surcharges, $28,400 per-theater average.
For comparison's sake, Mission: Impossible III earned $47.74 million at 4,054 theaters in July 2006 (approx. $58 million today), averaging $11,776 per site (approx. $14,000 today). At a little more than one tenth of the number of theaters, Ghost Protocol is expected to take in more than one fifth of the inflation-adjusted gross of its predecessor. »

Last week, we got our first look at Lock-Out, a new sci-fi movie produced by Luc Besson (The Transporter, Columbiana), in the form of an international teaser trailer that contained virtually no plot and only a smidgen of special effects, but a whole lot of British actor Guy Pearce looking tough, delivering quippy dialogue, and getting his face bashed in.
Now, a French theatrical trailer (in English) for the movie has been released that offers a brief explanation of the plot — the president's daughter (Maggie Grace) is trapped aboard an orbiting prison when a riot breaks out and only a wrongly convicted spy (Pearce) is desperate enough and crazy enough to attempt a rescue mission — more sci-fi goodness (cryogenic prison cells, spaceships, etc.); and much more of what was great about the teaser trailer: Pearce acting tough and delivering cheeky dialogue like, "Here's an apple and a gun. Don't talk to strangers; shoot them. »

Starring Kristen Stewart as a pregnant human, Robert Pattinson as a vampire, and Taylor Lautner as a six-packed werewolf, Bill Condon's The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 is now the third-biggest blockbuster at the North American box office, having surpassed Todd Phillips' comedy sequel The Hangover: Part II last weekend. According to figures found at Box Office Mojo, The Hangover 2, which stars Bradley Cooper, Justin Bartha, Zach Galifianakis, and Ed Helms stranded in Thailand, has collected $254.46 million in the domestic market. After 27 days (up until Dec. 14), Breaking Dawn 1 has raked in $261.45 million. No wonder Star Trek's George Takei is terrified of the Twilight menace.

Today we finally get a full-length official trailer for the upcoming "Lock Out" sci-fi film, which may end up being called "Ms One: Maximum Security" according to various sources and the trailer itself. The new film stars Guy Pearce, Maggie Grace (Taken) and Peter Stormare (Fargo). Plot Synopsis: A man (Pearce) wrongly convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage against the Us is offered freedom if he can rescue the president's daughter (Grace)… »
Lock-Out is the first of the two films co-written and produced by Luc Besson that we can look forward to next year – the other being the sequel to the immense Taken – which will mark the feature directorial debut of its other two co-writers, James Mather and Stephen St. Leger.
The film is led by Guy Pearce, who’s set to have a brilliant year next year starring in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus and John Hillcoat’s Wettest County opposite Tom Hardy and Shia Labeouf, and will also star Peter Stormare, along with reuniting Besson with his Taken star, Maggie Grace.
“A man wrongly convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage against the U.S. is offered his freedom if he can rescue the president’s daughter from an outer space prison taken over by violent inmates.”
We’ve now got a great new trailer to share with you, courtesy of the French film site, »

Lockout Trailer, Ms One: Maximum Security Trailer. James Mather, Stephen St. Leger‘s Lock-Out / Ms One: Maximum Security (2012) movie trailer stars Guy Pearce, Maggie Grace, Peter Stormare, Lennie James, and Vincent Regan. Lock-Out‘s plot synopsis: “A man (Pearce) wrongly convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage against the Us is offered freedom if he can rescue the president’s daughter (Maggie Grace) from an outer space prison taken over by violent inmates.”
We previously posted the Lock-Out (2012) International Movie Trailer.
I am going to see this film just for the jokes. This action film looks funny. Many people are saying Guy Pearce’s character is a replica of S.D. Plissken from Escape to New York. Snake was not a smartass like the character in this film is, he was insolent.
A new trailer has surfaced on Allocine for the Luc Besson produced movie Lock-Out featuring some recogniable faces including Guy Pearce (L.A. Confidential, The Kings Speech) and Peter Stomare (The Big Lebowski, Armageddon) and perhaps taking the award for ‘The Most Outrageous & Ludicrous Movie To Not Star Nicolas Cage Award of 2012′.
Ridiculously titled M.S. One: Maximum Security outside of the U.S. (seriously), the futuristic sci-fi trailer comes across like “Escape From New York set in space”, with Guy Pearce as a wrongfully arrested convict sent to the titular space station/prison to rescue the American President’s daughter when a mass breakout occurs. Lost’s Maggie Grace plays the kidnapped daughter and for whatever reason Luc Besson likes to make movies where she is kidnapped (see Taken, also produced by Luc Besson’s Europacorp) and she is getting herself typecast in the worst possible way.

A Lock-Out trailer has been released. Luc Besson's science fiction action movie stars Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace. Grace is the daughter of the president, who finds herself trapped on a supposedly invulnerable orbital prison when the inmates take over. Pearce is the mouthy convict offered a pardon if he can rescue her. The trailer for Lock-Out is for the French version of the film, which is titled (more) »

Today we have a full-length trailer for the upcoming "Lock Out" sci-fi film, which may end up being called "Ms One: Maximum Security." The new film stars Guy Pearce, Maggie Grace (Taken) and Peter Stormare (Fargo). Plot: A man (Pearce) wrongly convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage against the Us is offered freedom if he can rescue the president's daughter (Grace) from an outer space prison taken over by violent inmates. The new movie is written by Besson (director of "The Fifth Element" and "The Professional") and directed by James Mather. It is set to hit theaters on April 20th, 2012. Trailer: If you cannot see the player, click here. »
Back in August 2010, when word broke of Maggie Grace jumping aboard Luc Besson’s new high concept thriller Lock-Out (or Ms One: Maximum Security as it is in France), we thought the set up sounded like a blend of Escape From New York and Fortress. From the looks of this trailer, we were bang on, with just a dash of Die Hard added in for good measure. Check it out below, but beware of some Nsfw language.Grace plays the president’s daughter, who gets stranded when a supposedly invulnerable maximum-security prison floating in space is suddenly taken over by its psycho inmates. So who could rescue her? Well, since Liam Neeson clearly wasn’t available, Guy Pearce is called in to do the job. He’s a snark-fuelled type who has been falsely accused of espionage against the Us. Promised a pardon in return for his actions, he’s »
After spending the last five years directing a trilogy of animated films based on the Arthur et les Minimoys books and a serious political drama with The Lady, French director Luc Besson is finally returning to the genre that we've all been hoping for: science-fiction. Okay, so he's not directing this one himself, but it's still hard not to be at least a little bit excited by the prospect. The last time he worked with this kind of material himself was in 1997 with The Fifth Element, a movie that a lot of people still seem to love. This time he has co-written a screenplay about a convict who "is offered his freedom if he can rescue the president's daughter from an outer space prison taken over by violent inmates." Yes, the plot synopsis sounds a little bit like John Carpenter's long-rumoured Escape from New York sequel, Escape from Earth, »
Let's not beat around the bush here. Guy Pearce is awesome and should probably be in every movie ever. Whether he's playing a tortured tough guy in a crappy situation in "Memento" or a tortured tough guy in a crappy situation in "The Hurt Locker" or a tortured tough guy in a crappy situation in "L.A. Confidential," Pearce has proven time and time again that his a-game when it comes to playing manly men is in no short supply.
However, not content on just being the world's favorite badass Australian (sorry, Russell Crowe), Pearce has decided to come back with some new material with ten times the space shootouts.
In "Escape from M.S. One" (or various iterations on "Ms One: Security Maximum," "Ms One: Maximum Security," depending on who you ask), Pearce plays a tortured tough guy (see a pattern here?) who has to rescue the president's daughter »

This is either gonna be terrible, or awesomely terrible (and we're really hoping for the latter), but no matter how you slice it, the Luc Besson-produced "Lock-Out" (or as it seems to be called overseas "Ms One: Maximum Security") looks plain ridiculous. But luckily, Guy Pearce is there to help chew the scenery. Penned by Besson and co-directors James Mather and Stephen St. Leger, the film stars Pearce as a wrongly accused convict who must clear his name by undergoing a suicide mission to rescue the President's daughter (Maggie Grace). Oh, she just happens to be trapped in a futuristic space prison that is currently in the midst of a riot. This thing looks totally fucking bonkers in the best way possible, with Pearce seemingly trying to take the crown from Bruce Willis for action movie one-liners. And each one is eye-rolling/genius gold. It's kind of great to »
Two weeks back we brought you the first trailer for Lock-Out, a new sci-fi thriller starring Guy Pearce, Maggie Grace and Peter Stormare. In my write-up I noted that the plot description of the film made it sound like John Carpenter's Escape From New York, only set in space instead of Manhattan. The trailer, however, which largely featured Pearce getting interrogated and punched a lot, didn't really show off much of the story. Now a new French trailer for the movie has arrived online and I'm changing my stance: this not only looks seems a remake of Escape From New York, it basically is one. Check out the trailer below. Written by Luc Besson, James Mather, and Stephen St. Leger and directed by Mather and St. Leger, Lock-Out is set in 2079 when a prison in space is used to house some of the most dangerous criminals in the world.
