Saturday a.m. Update: With an estimated $19.8 million, Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is heading toward an opening weekend right around $50 million to $52 million.

Additionally, Dunkirk has now been released in 46 international markets where it has so far grossed $21.2 million after releasing earlier this week in a handful of territories. We'll have more on the overall international performance with tomorrow morning's report. In second is Universal's release of Girls Trip, which is scorching the weekend, delivering an estimated $11.68 million on Friday, heading toward a $29+ million opening.

Venice: New Films by George Clooney, Guillermo Del Toro, Stephen Frears Expected to World Premiere (Exclusive)

21 July 2017 6:05 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – George Clooney’s “Suburbicon,” Guillermo Del Toro’s “The Shape of Water,” Stephen Frears’ “Victoria and Abdul,” and Paolo Virzi’s “Ella and John,” starring Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland, are among the titles strongly tipped to world premiere at the upcoming 74th Venice Film Festival.

Also expected to make their worldwide bows on the Lido are Paul Schrader’s “First Reformed,” Andrew Haigh’s “Lean on Pete,” and Lucrecia Martel’s “Zama.”

Less than a week before the official announcement, the buzz on the Venice lineup remains somewhat muted, though some locked-in titles have surfaced, including Alexander Payne’s “Downsizing,” which will open the fest. There’s also certainty over the absence of some titles – especially “Blade Runner 2049” and Darren Aronofsky’s “Mother!”, both high-profile movies that had been considered as possibilities.

Suburbicon,” starring Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Josh Brolin, and Oscar Isaac, looks set to be the second Paramount picture to launch from »

‘Game of Thrones’: How Fruitcake Was Used in the Season 7 Premiere’s Most Stomach-Churning Sequence

48 minutes ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There was a lot to unpack in last week’s “Game of Thrones” premiere, from Sansa and Jon’s infighting to Daenerys’ long-gestating plans for conquest, but one of the most memorable sequences from “Dragonstone” had little to do with war. Rather, it was our introduction to Samwell’s time at the Citadel — an apprenticeship shown in a montage that repeatedly cut between bowls of soup and overflowing bedpans.

In a new Vulture interview, actor John Bradley takes us behind the scenes of that stomach-churning sequence. Were you aware, for instance, that “if you want to re-create human feces onscreen, the best thing to do is to use soaking-wet fruitcake and mold it into the shape of turds”? Now you do.

As his unofficial exit interview, very-recently-resigned White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer appeared on “Hannity” last night to discuss his brief tenure as Donald Trump’s mouthpiece.

Alfonso Cuarón Is the Best Director of the 21st Century, According to Metacritic — See the Top 25

1 hour ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Using the proprietary powers of the Metascore, everyone’s favorite review aggregator (sorry, Rotten Tomatoes) has ranked the 25 best directors of the 21st century. The results were found by averaging the reviews of filmmakers who’ve released at least four movies since January 1, 2000 and thus represent more of a number crunch than a subjective list.

Read MoreThe 25 Best Documentaries of the 21st Century, from ‘Amy’ to ‘The Act of Killing

As the two lowest-ranked auteurs are tied with an average Metascore of 78.4, essentially anyone who’s released at least one movie that received middling reviews didn’t make the cut — meaning that everyone from Quentin Tarantino and Terrence Malick to Sofia Coppola and Wes Anderson shan’t be found here.

Topping the list is Alfonso Cuarón, whose average score of 87.5 comes from four highly acclaimed movies: “Gravity” (96), “Y Tu Mamá También” (88), “Children of Men” (84), and “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban »

We're almost exactly halfway through 2017 and its already been a kind of revelatory year for DC and Marvel adaptations. The very fact that Wonder Woman, as directed by Patty Jenkins, is the best movie that the DC comics have produced since The Dark Knight would be worth a lengthy discussion alone. Putting Wonder Woman's unbridled success up against small triumphs like James Mangold's Logan and Jon Watts' Spider-Man: Homecoming, two of the best movies to be produced from Marvel titles, full stop, suggests that DC and Marvel are finally starting to really understand what their … »
