Box Office Actuals for 'No Good Deed', 'Dolphin Tale 2' and 'The Drop'

11 hours ago

There is nothing more to say today than there was yesterday as the box office actuals for this past weekend aren't too far off estimates. No Good Deed is still the #1 movie at the box office with $24.25 million while Dolphin Tale 2 remains in second at $15.8 million, $700,000 below estimates, which should cause for an interesting shift in the box office reader predictions. Also opening this weekend, though on a limited basis was The Drop, which finished with $4.1 million from 809 theaters for a $5,074 per theater average. It will be interesting to see how that one does from one week to the next. It received a "B+" CinemaScore and I quite liked it so it has my full support. Finally, yes, Guardians of the Galaxy is now the only 2014 release to cross the $300 million mark domestically. I expect The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies »

'I Saw the Devil' & 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' Remakes Find Directors

11 hours ago

The prospect of a remake of I Saw the Devil with Adam Wingard (The Guest, You're Next) at the helm is far more compelling than the idea of Oculus helmer Mike Flanagan taking on a remake of I Know What You Did Last Summer. Not because Flanagan is a bad filmmaker or anything like that, but merely because who cares about a new I Know What You Did... moviec Scream 4 was a bust in 2011 and I Know What You Did... was riding on the original Scream's coattails, so who thinks a new one is a smart business decisionc Now, the idea of Wingard taking on Kim Jee-woon's I Saw the Devil with The Guest screenwriter Simon Barrett is a different story. The Guest begins hitting theaters this week and even with You're Next, Wingard has shown a knack for mixing small doses of dark humor within his terrifying tales, »

Oh Yeah, There's One More 'Hobbit' Movie Coming

14 hours ago

Warner Bros. and MGM have released the above new banner for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (12/17) and you can give it a click for the super-sized version as it serves as a reminder there is still one more Hobbit movie left to be seen. Perhaps the most interesting thing about there being yet another several hours spent in Middle Earth is to wonder what Peter Jackson will do once he is finally done with all things Hobbit. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town. Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices »

First Look at Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in 'By the Sea'

15 hours ago

We learned back in July, Angelina Jolie's next project following this December's Unbroken would be a smaller film in which she would star opposite hubby Brad Pitt and now Entertainment Weekly brings us the above first picture from By the Sea as well as this more detailed synopsis and word Niels Arestrup (A Prophet) and Richard Bohringer co-star: Set in France during the mid-1970s, Jolie plays Vanessa, a former dancer, and Pitt is her husband Roland, an American writer. As they travel the country together, they seem to be growing apart, but when they linger in one quiet, seaside town they begin to draw close to some of its more vibrant inhabitants, such as a local bar/cafe-keeper (Arestrup, pictured below) and hotel owner (Bohringer). EW doesn't know for sure, but suggests the film may have taken inspiration from the Emily Dickinson poem of the same name. Jolie, »

New Clip and Poster for 'Dracula Untold'

15 hours ago

With a PG-13 rating, I can't lie and say I'm expecting anything from Dracula Untold, Universal's clear attempt at starting a generic franchise based on Bram Stoker's Dracula, focusing on a young Vlad the Impaler (Luke Evans) who, when the lives of his wife and child are put in danger by a bloodthirsty sultan, risks his soul to save them, and in the process becomes the first vampire. The pic is slated for an October 10 release and the first clip and a new poster have just come online and it's clearly going for that glossy, modern CGI look all of these disposable, would-be franchise starters aim for, and I'm sure there will be some big battle in the end, a conflict of character, and a whole plotline with Vlad struggling with his now immortal soul and what it means for his family. »

'Tusk' (2014) Movie Review

17 hours ago

Like it or not, Kevin Smith has carved out his own niche in the world of cinema and I respect his decision to utilize his dedicated fanbase to make the movies he wants to make, rather than churning out studio garbage such as his 2010 feature, Cop Out. Tusk is his second venture into this latest stage in his career and, having not yet seen Red State, my first experience with something of a "new" Smith, a filmmaker that hasn't abandoned his comedic origins, but instead twisted his brand of comedy into the horror genre. The result is a movie that I didn't particularly enjoy or find funny, but still have to give credit where due, as I'd rather see more filmmakers making what they want to make and telling the stories they want to tell, instead of whatever second rate studio script lands on their desk. Tusk centers on Wallace »

'The Imitation Game' Wins Toronto Film Festival Audience Award

20 hours ago

The 2014 Toronto Film Festival has come to a close and the awards have been announced with little surprise at the top as it seemed it would either be James Marsh's The Theory of Everything my review and Morten Tyldum's The Imitation Game my review, at least based on the movies I saw and the reaction I'd heard walking around the fest. And lo and behold, it was Imitation Game taking hom the People's Choice Award, but it appears Theory of Everything wasn't a close second. The first runner up was Isabel Coixet's Learning to Drive and the second was Theodore Melfi's St. Vincent starring Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy. The People's Choice Documentary award went to Hajooj Kuka for Beats of the Antonov with David Thorpe's Do I Sound Gayc taking first runner-up in which Thorpe confronts his anxiety about "sounding gay" while the second »
