Colin Callender’s Playground Options ‘The Widow,’ ‘Jeremy Hutchinson’s Case Histories’

11 April 2016 1:54 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London — Colin Callender’s production company Playground, whose credits include Hilary Mantel adaptation “Wolf Hall,” has optioned two books, Fiona Barton’s psychological thriller “The Widow” and Thomas Grant’s nonfiction account of a lawyer’s life, “Jeremy Hutchinson’s Case Histories.”

The deals follow Playground’s recent optioning of Patrick Kingsley’s “The New Odyssey — The Story of Europe’s Refugee Crisis,” which will be published in May.

“The Widow” is about the wife of a man who is accused — and eventually cleared — of kidnapping and murdering a child. Throughout this ordeal, the woman, Jean, stands by her man, the ever loyal and supportive wife, seemingly refusing to believe anything the police or press accused him of. But when he suddenly dies, both the law and the media want answers. Surely Jean must know the truth about what happened?

Jeremy Hutchinson’s Case Histories” is an entertaining and thought-provoking »

Box Office: Disney’s ‘Zootopia’ Opens Big With $73.7 Million Debut

6 March 2016 8:36 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Disney’s “Zootopia” scored the fourth-biggest March opening ever, debuting to $73.7 million over the weekend.

The animated story about a rabbit who joins the police force ranks as the biggest Disney Animation launch (though not the best Pixar debut), outstripping “Frozen,” the 2012 blockbuster that bowed to $67.4 million. With no major family film opening until “The Jungle Book” lands on April 15, “Zootopia” is well positioned to be the de facto choice for moviegoers with children for the next month.

“There’s an absence of competition,” said Dave Hollis, Disney’s distribution chief. “We are set up to have a big, big run.”

Disney did not release a budget, but most animated films cost in excess of $100 million. “Zootopia” screened in 3,827 locations.

Overseas, where “Zootopia” has been playing for three weeks, the film added another $63.4 million to its haul, pushing its global total to $232.5 million. The film continues a sterling comeback run for Disney Animation, »

Disney's 'Zootopia' Targets March Animated Opening Record

3 March 2016 11:30 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

We may have another record-breaking weekend on our hands as Disney's Zootopia looks as if it will topple 2012's The Lorax to claim the largest March opening weekend for an animated feature. Additional new releases include Gerard Butler's second straight weekend with a new release as he stars in the Olympus Has Fallen sequel, London Has Fallen, and Tina Fey delivers the war comedy Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. And once the numbers are tallied, this year's top twelve may come close to doubling last year's top twelve total over the same weekend. Getting a head start on its domestic release, Zootopia has already brought in more than $93 million internationally from 31 territories. That said, not only is it opening in the U.S. this week, it's expanding into 14 additional territories including Germany, Russia (where it had $1.3 million in previews last weekend) and China. These international releases obviously upped the film's online footprint worldwide, »

Adam McKay at Art for Amnesty Brunch: ‘It’s Been an Amazing Year for Movies Challenging Entrenched Power’

8 January 2016 10:32 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“We were thinking about how we break back into the Hollywood awards season with a social change-human rights message, and since the Globes were first up, we said, ‘why don’t we go for it?'” explained Art for Amnesty’s creative director Marvin Bing at the inaugural Art for Amnesty Pre-Golden Globes Recognition Brunch on Friday afternoon at Chateau Marmont.

There, the historic organization — which was founded 55 years ago, and has fought beside activists from Nelson Mandela to Malala Yousafzai — honored three individuals for artistically promoting freedom of expression: Participant Media founder and chairman Jeff Skoll, “The Big Short’ writer/director Adam McKay and “Homeland” actress Nazanin Boniadi.

“I think it’s been an amazing year for movies challenging entrenched power and corruption,” McKay — who founded comedy video website Funny or Die with Will Ferrell, and partnered with Amnesty in 2010 — told Variety before the program. “‘Beasts of No Nation, »
