‘Tomorrowland’ Earns $725,000, ‘Poltergeist’ Scares Up $1.4 Million on Thursday Night
Disney opted to limit the Thursday showings of the George Clooney sci-fier to what it dubbed “movie palaces” in order to highlight director Brad Bird’s vision. It noted that “Tomorrowland” scored a $1,077 theatre average, which would have given it $2.7 million had it played on 2,500 screens and $3.2 million if it had been launched at 3,000 theaters — placing it in the same range as “World War Z” and “Tron: Legacy” with $3.6 million, “X-Men: First Class” at $3.3 million, “Inception” at $3 million, and “Interstellar at $2.7 million.
“Tomorrowland,” which carries a $180 million price tag, opens Friday at 3,972 U.S. locations. It’s on track to debut to $40 million for the three-day weekend and around $50 million for the four-day period. “Tomorrowland” also opens in 65 foreign markets.

Netflix's 'Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp' Confirms Crazy Famous Cast With First-Look Photos
Netflix and "Wet Hot American Summer" co-creators Michael Showalter and David Wain blew our minds earlier this year when they revealed that their series return to the cult classic film, subtitled "First Day of Camp," would include nearly every one of the movie's now-pretty-damn-famous ensemble cast.

‘Pitch Perfect 2’ Edging Out ‘Tomorrowland’ in Box Office Upset
“Tomorrowland” doesn’t have as promising of a future as Disney might have anticipated.
The George Clooney-starrer is being outperformed at the U.S. box office this Memorial Day holiday by the second weekend of “Pitch Perfect 2.” While “Tomorrowland” was expected to open to $45 million — already slightly below recent forecasts — it now looks likely to reel in less than $40 million, giving the “Pitch Perfect” sequel a narrow edge with $41 million-plus.
The two films were neck and neck on Friday in as tight of a race as it gets, with both earning $9.7 million. “Tomorrowland” earned $9.73 million, while “Pitch Perfect 2” brought in $9.66 million. The weekend’s other newcomer, “Poltergeist,” was a close third, but will likely finish the weekend in fourth with about $29 million.
The big-budget tentpole “Tomorrowland,” which carries a hefty $180 million pricetag, had been shrouded in mystery leading up to its release and likely suffering from being »

Cannes: Gilles Jacob – How To Make It in Film
Jacob joked his life was now far easier. “As the former president of the Cannes Festival and president of Cannes Cinefondation, my situation was very difficult: I used to have to say, good day Cinefondation president, good day Festival president, and I was talking to myself.”
Ex catedra, he delivered two-to-three tips to the audience, mostly made up of film school students. They are worth noting, the fruit of a long experience, and Jacob’s believe in and admiration for grand masters and auteur filmmaking:
1.“First of all, see as many films you can, good, not that good, it’s not that big a deal. Look attentively at how they’re made. François Truffaut, when he had a problem on set, when you don’t have time to think things through, »

Cannes: Chilean Marcia Tambutti’ Wins Cannes’ First Oeil d’Or with ‘Allende’
Stig Bjorkman’s “Ingrid Bergman, in Her Own Words,” earned a mention.
Snapped up by Edouard Waintrop for Directors’ Fortnight, Tambutti’s first feature, “Allende” portrays her grandfather, Chilean president Salvador Allende, not as a political icon but in personal terms, as a family man, with his friends, on holiday, “relating in a special way with almost everyone,” Tambutti told Variety before Cannes.
A Chilean-Mexican feature, produced by Errante, Martifilms and Fragua Cine, Tambutti’s documented search for a more intimate sense of her grandfather also breaks with her family’s silence about him.
“ I was brought up in a matriarchy and seeing these strong women, wanted to know how my family dynamics operated” when Allende was alive, Tambutti said.

Louisiana's Anti-Gay Order Won't Disrupt Its Film Industry, Says 'Pitch Perfect' Producer
Louisiana's governor Bobby Jindal has received heavy criticism this week for signing a "religious freedom" executive order to protect same-sex marriage opponents in his state. Louisiana is the #1 location for major motion pictures filmed in the U.S., according to a study released last year. Could Jindal's perceived anti-gay measure affect the success of the film industry in Louisiana? New Orleans native and Gold Circle Film's Scott Niemeyer doesn't think so. Niemeyer executive produced Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2 both of which were filmed in Baton Rouge. Niemeyer, along with many other people in Louisiana, sees Jindal's executive order as a flaccid

'The Shining' Turns 35: 10 overlooked scare moments in Kubrick's horror classic
"The Shining" turns 35 today. Can you believe it? Truly, Stanley Kubrick's horror classic feels as fresh today as it did when it was released. Not only that, but it stands as possibly the most picked-apart horror film in cinematic history. Scratch that: it is the most picked-apart horror film in cinematic history. Watch Rodney Ascher's fascinating documentary "Room 237" for more on this. What always got me most about "The Shining" is that unlike most horror movies, there aren't a lot of peaks and valleys -- i.e. setup-scare-setup-scare, loud-soft-loud. Instead it's an exercise in sustained horror, filled to the brim with small, subtle scare moments that -- while not as iconic as, say, the elevator of blood, the bathtub crone, or Nicholson's psychotic invocation of that famous late-night line -- are arguably all the more frightening for their very casualness. Let's celebrate the 35th birthday of this »

Michael Fassbender says his 'Macbeth' is suffering from Ptsd
Cannes - The last film in competition debuted at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and that meant it was time for two of the world's most respected and photogenic stars to get their moment in the spotlight. So, yes, the global media were quite excited about Marion Cotillard and Michael Fassbender taking the podium for "Macbeth's" official press conference. Justin Kurzel's new adaptation of "Macbeth" is a stylish, gritty and intense depiction of William Shakespeare's classic bard. Fassbender plays the title role passionately and Cotillard (basically France's Cate Blanchett) takes on his Lady. Kurzel expands on the material by including some beautiful and gruesome war sequences that frame the story in a slightly different light. Fassbender says he experienced the play when he was 15 and later when he was in grad school, but was taking on the iconic role for the first time. It was a conversation with the Aussie director, »
