'Kung Fu Panda 3' Repeats Box Office Win with $21 Million

7 February 2016 11:09 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The hit animated sequel Kung Fu Panda 3 ended the first month of 2016 on a high note at the box office, taking in $48 million in its opening weekend. In the first frame of February, this adventure will face three new movies, Universal's Hail, Caesar!, Sony's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Lionsgate's The Choice. As expected, none of these new releases could beat Kung Fu Panda 3, which won for a second weekend in a row with an estimated $21 million.

The animated sequel Kung Fu Panda 3 currently has a solid 80% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and it opened in 3,955 theaters, which will still make it the widest release in theaters this weekend, by a long-shot. Kung Fu Panda 3 marks the return of one of the most successful animated franchises in the world, with its biggest comedy adventure yet. When Po's (Jack Black) long-lost panda father (Bryan Cranston) suddenly reappears, »

Movie Review – Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016)

6 February 2016 4:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, 2016.

Written and Directed by Burr Steers.

Starring Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith, Ellie Bamber, Millie Brady, Suki Waterhouse, Sally Phillips, Charles Dance, and Lena Headey.

Synopsis:

Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England is faced with a new challenge — an army of undead zombies.

Slow motion takes over as the Bennet sisters begin unsheathing various types of blades hidden underneath their elaborate Victorian-era appropriate garments (in what is a rather titillating shot), but most crucially, seems to promise that the ludicrous movie titled Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will live up to the level of absurd, stupid entertainment promised. That one quick scene offers essentially everything one could want coming into something so ridiculous; beautiful women dressed to kill that know their way around daggers and swords, »

Film Review: Hard to Find a Point to ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’

5 February 2016 8:39 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Having not read this best-selling source novel, I had a hard time understanding the point of “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.’ Amazingly, it falls short as both a zombie movie and a satire of the original Jane AustinPride and Prejudice” story, which was its only achievement as a final result.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

Whether the source novel would unlock anything, I cannot know, because I have no desire to pursue the tale beyond the film. As an admirer of Jane Austin’s novel, it was surprising that the screenplay adaptation played it pretty straight, which had no oomph or reaction beyond, “wow, Elizabeth Bennett sure kicks ass in this version.” The zombies existed to show their oozing faces (both puss and blood, Thanks Obama) and to provide the zombies fighters – which included all of the Bennett sisters, Mr. Darcy and other familiar Austin-nites – with fodder for quality kills. There was »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Movie Review

Title: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Director: Burr Steers Starring: Lily James, Sam Riley, Bella Heathcote, Ellie Bamber, Millie Brady, Suki Waterhouse, Douglas Booth, Sally Philips, Charles Dance, Jack Huston, Matt Smith, Lena  Headey. ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ is a fresh twist on Jane Austen’s classic novel, based on the best-seller by Seth Grahame-Smith. A mysterious plague has fallen upon the 19th century England. The land is overrun with the undead altering the genteel Victorian social mores, and turning the bucolic English countryside into a war zone.

Pride And Prejudice And Zombies – The Review

4 February 2016 6:31 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Zombies make everything better! Jane Austen devotees needn’t worry that the makers of Pride And Prejudice And Zombies have ridiculed her perennially popular story of love among the British upper classes. They’ve merely added zombies to it – an improvement if you ask me! I’ve never had the inclination to read Austen’s novel (I’ve heard it’s good), but I once saw a big screen treatment starring Keira Knightly. This high-concept hybrid adapted from novelist Seth Grahame-Smith’s revisionist tome is one of the more interesting horror movies I’ve seen in a while. Not only does director Burr Steer skirt the edges of camp with Pride And Prejudice And Zombies, he accomplishes a wonderful sense of surrealism and whimsy missing in much modern horror. Here’s a movie that delivers on exactly what its title promises. There are the unmarried Bennet sisters, as well as Mr. »

[Review] Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

4 February 2016 1:53 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

From the opening moments, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies wears its awkward charm on its sleeve. The self-serious Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley) has crashed a ball in 19th-century Britain looking for a zombie amidst a gathering of the wealthy. With a neat trick up his sleeve, he manages to root out the flesh-eater and dispatches him without much pretense in violent fashion — from the point-of-view of the zombie itself, sparing us gory details. The bystanders are shocked and appalled. In this world, like most that make up the zombie genre, there are people who seem keenly prepared and able to survive the plague of the undead and those who seem distraught no matter how aware they are of the situation. In the world of Ppz, we have socialites that doddle around in corsets and finery with knives tucked into their garters.

Loosely based on the plotting of Jane Austen‘s Pride and Prejudice, »

Review: 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' is an agreeably silly mash-up

3 February 2016 12:40 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

First and foremost, I can't believe this movie actually finally exists. In development since 1921 or thereabouts, this is one of those films that has had roughly 300 different directors attached since it was first announced. At one point, this was going to be a David O. Russell film with Natalie Portman starring, and I'm still not sure what that would have looked like. The thing is, when Seth Grahame-Smith first published his mash-up novel, built onto the skeleton of Jane Austen's classic, I'm going to bet he never imagined how long it would take for this to become a movie, or even that it would be one someday. It felt like a sort of English major goofing around, only to somehow see it become this publishing smash. And all credit to Grahame-Smith, who has made a lovely career out of bending and breaking icons, for actually seeing this through. What »

Film Review: ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’

2 February 2016 12:04 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tolerable, but not handsome enough to tempt substantial audiences, “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” is in fact a moderately entertaining film, not deficient in old-fashioned costume drama when it pleases, nor in the power of being clever where it chooses, but awkward and unsatisfying. It comes with a very encouraging pedigree, based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s high-concept bestseller; it has the fortune of well-qualified cast members, all in the habit of investing their roles with more than they ought, and taking cues from other films of rank; and its producers ought therefore in every respect to have been entitled to think well of their box office prospects, and meanly of others. However, in Hollywood, the power of doing anything with quickness is always much prized by the possessor of the rights to a hot property, and often without any attention to the imperfection of the performance. But the public’s good opinion, »

Can 'Kung Fu Panda 3' Beat Zombies, Clooney and Sparks at the Box Office?

2 February 2016 9:28 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last weekend, the hit animated sequel Kung Fu Panda 3 ended the first month of 2016 on a high note at the box office, taking in $48 million in its opening weekend. In the first frame of February, this adventure will face three new movies, Universal's Hail, Caesar!, Sony's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Lionsgate's The Choice. If the projections at BoxOffice.com are correct, none of these will likely beat Kung Fu Panda 3, which should win this weekend with an estimated $22.6 million.

The animated sequel Kung Fu Panda 3 currently has a solid 80% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and it opened in 3,955 theaters, which will still make it the widest release in theaters this weekend, by a long-shot.

Dancing sailors and the return of Blue Steel: 10 films you must see this February

1 February 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

February may be the shortest month of the year, but it isn’t short of good films to check out—particularly comedies that will get you through Valentine’s Day if you’re single—or date movies that you should see with your significant other if you’re not.

In case we didn’t already know how, Rebel Wilson is going to teach both us and her co-star Dakota Johnson How to be Single. Meanwhile, The Coen Brothers are back with their first film in three years, a satire on the Hollywood system that looks like it will fall in line with their classics, Hail, Caesar!

If you’re in for a scare, there’s the festival darling The Witch which will definitely keep you up at night. However, it definitely looks like February is a month filled with laughs, especially with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilsonreprising their roles for Zoolander 2. »

Gothic New Poster For Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Teases A Bloody Apocalypse

29 January 2016 8:02 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jane Austin’s Bennet Sisters buck societal tradition and prepare for a bloody apocalypse in today’s gothic new poster for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, giving Burr Steers’ imminent genre hybrid one final moment in the sun before its arrival late next week.

Coming by way of Sony Pictures and Resident Evil experts Screen Gems, Steers’ adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel thrusts Lily James in the famous role of Elizabeth Bennet. Presenting a decidedly different take on growing up on the British aristocracy, the director has teased that the class disparities and longstanding relationship with the Darcys still filters in to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Flanked by her sisters Jane, Mary, Kitty and Lydia, Elizabeth assembles the troops in order to defend the lush rolling hills of Pemberley, but the serene English countryside has been stained with the crimson blood of fallen allies, who raise from the »
