Beauty and the Beast Beats Power Rangers and Life in Weekend #2

26 March 2017 1:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After shattering box office records last weekend with an amazing debut of $174.4 million, nothing was expected to stand in the way of a second straight weekend win for Beauty and the Beast. The live action fairy tale adaptation squared off against three newcomers this weekend, Lionsgate's Power Rangers, Sony's Life and Warner Bros.' CHiPs, although, as expected, none of these new releases managed to come close to Beauty and the Beast. The Disney blockbuster easily won its second weekend in a row with an estimated $88.3 million.

Last weekend, this long-awaited live-action adaptation broke Batman v Superman's record for largest March opening ever, and it also broke records for the largest debut for a PG movie, and had the biggest IMAX debut ever for a PG film as well. While it only opened against one other movie last weekend, the R-rated thriller The Belko Experiment, which debuted in roughly 1/4th »

Can Power Rangers Beat Beauty and the Beast at the Box Office?

21 March 2017 10:13 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney's Beauty and the Beast somehow managed to exceed the expectations of most box office analysts, with a record-breaking opening weekend of $174.7 million, beating the Sunday estimates by over $4 million. This long-awaited live-action adaptation broke Batman v Superman's record for largest March opening ever, and it also broke records for the largest debut for a PG movie, and had the biggest IMAX debut ever for a PG film as well. While it only opened against one other movie last weekend, the R-rated thriller The Belko Experiment, which debuted in roughly 1/4th of the theaters Beauty and the Beast was in, this live-action fairy tale will have much more competition heading into its second weekend, facing Lionsgate's Power Rangers, Sony's Life, Warner Bros.' CHiPs and River Rain's sports drama Slamma Jamma, although Beauty and the Beast should still easily reign supreme.

Life Trailer #2: Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds Face a Deadly Alien Species

5 February 2017 1:28 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With so many reboots and sequels happening in Hollywood, there is a lot of desire for some original, or at least non-franchise related movies.

Now, Sony has released a brand new, full-length trailer for Life that gives us a much better idea of what to expect from the new sci-fi thriller.

The film follows team of scientists aboard the International Space Station whose mission of discovery turns to one of primal fear when they find a rapidly evolving life form that caused extinction on Mars, and now threatens the crew and all life on Earth.

Life Super Bowl Trailer: Ryan Reynolds Fights a Scary Alien

4 February 2017 10:52 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ryan Reynolds got a big boost to his career last year with Deadpool, and while we have to wait a while for Deadpool 2, we are going to be seeing him back on the big screen very soon. He is going to be starring alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in the new sci-fi thriller Life, which just so happens to be written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who penned the screenplay for Deadpool. Now, Sony Pictures has released their brand new Super Bowl spot for Life online.

Sony clearly has a lot of confidence in Life, or at the very least they want to get as many eyeballs on it as possible, since a 30-second slot of ad time cost an average of $5 million. In any case, this new video gives us a nice, brisk look at what to expect from the movie, which will be hitting theaters late next month. »
