'Dunkirk' and 'Valerian' Bring Big Budgets to the Weekend, but Will They Bring Big Box Office?

16 hours ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Rave reviews pave the way for this weekend's release of Christopher Nolan's World War II feature Dunkirk, a $150 million production critics have declared a "masterpiece" and the first surefire Oscar contender of the year. Additionally, Stx is debuting Luc Besson's $200+ million sci-fi feature Valerian, the second of three original features debuting this weekend amid a franchise laden summer. Dialing back the spending a little, but not the potential, Universal's female-driven comedy Girls Trip carries a meager $19 million budget, but is looking for big results and a possible second place finish as it enters a marketplace begging for something that isn't specifically targeting the male demographic. Poised for a #1 finish, Warner Bros.' release of Dunkirk debuts this weekend in 3,720 theaters, including several IMAX and Plf locations, some of which will be playing the film in 70mm. Nolan's recent history is peppered with three Batman films along with three original features, »

Taron Egerton Replacing Tom Hardy In Elton John Biopic ‘Rocketman’

20 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Musical biopics are notoriously difficult to make, usually because it involves getting tangled web of parties — the artist’s estate, music rights holders, and more — to all get on the same creative page. However, Elton John is clearing up any such potential dust-ups by producing his own biopic “Rocketman.” That said, locking down a leading man isn’t always easy, and the film has made a switcheroo.

A few years back, Tom Hardy was the eye-brow raising choice to play Elton John, but he’s now been replaced by “Kingsman: The Secret Service” star Taron Egerton.

While Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is expected to win this weekend's box-office battle, the big question is whether the critically acclaimed World War II epic can clear $40 million in its U.S. landing.

War dramas have never been known for big openings, although Nolan — the mastermind behind the blockbuster Dark Knight trilogy — is a powerful brand unto himself.

Warner Bros., Nolan's home studio, is projecting a domestic debut in the $35 million-$40 million range. Most box-office observers believe Dunkirk will come in on the higher end, while some think it has a shot of doing »

Dunkirk and City of Ghosts: this week’s best films in the UK

1 hour ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Christopher Nolan delivers a visceral war epic, while brave citizens in Isis’s ‘capital’ risk their lives to shed light on the treatment of the city and its people

Nolan marshals the troops, the fleet and the Spitfires but strips out the dialogue and bombast to create a war epic like no other. Solemnly viewing the Dunkirk evacuations from three intersecting perspectives, it’s an intense, visceral experience, enhanced by non-cgi action and a throbbing score. The star cast – including Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance and Harry Styles – almost disappear in the mayhem.

Film Review: ‘The Black Prince’

2 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Queen Victoria once painted a charming watercolor of the young Maharajah Duleep Singh carefully adjusting a child’s turban on the head of her son Arthur. Victoria was no artist, but the sketch delights thanks to the intimacy between the two royals, one Indian, the other British, and speaks of the familial affection the Queen felt for the man whose throne in Punjab her government had confiscated. Unfortunately, where the illustration offers a window onto a relationship, the new biopic on Duleep, “The Black Prince,” provides no similarly insightful rewards.

Designed as a Quality (with a capital “Q”) production demonstrating the Maharajah’s gradual awakening to his Indian heritage after years in exile acting the British squire, director-writer Kavi Raz’s oh-so-simple take on a deeply contradictory character turns a fascinating historical figure into a sad and dully predictable footnote. Clunkily scripted and generically pretty in a Stately Home porn kind of way, the »

Film Review: ‘Awaken the Shadowman’

2 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A slow burn of a horror drama that doesn’t build toward quite enough of a blaze to be truly memorable, “Awaken the Shadowman” nonetheless ranks a cut above the genre norm for its atmospheric and confident setup. This debut feature for director “J.S. Wilson” (actually a pseudonym for the three scenarist-producers, two of whom are also the male leads) finds estranged brothers reunited over their mother’s disappearance, but increasingly troubled even more by weird goings-on in the town where they grew up. Some horror fans will decry the lack of gore — or even much violence — here. More discerning ones, however, may just lament that a film with such a strong first two-thirds grows rushed and underwhelming in the last lap.

After a brief prologue depicting an imperiled young woman and baby in 1964 Connecticut, we meet present-day protagonist Adam (James Zimbardi), a Redding, Calif. construction worker struggling to meet the needs of his small family — to »
