Box Office: ‘Straight Outta Compton,’ Faith-Based ‘War Room’ in Close Race

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

N.W.A biopic “Straight Outta Compton” is experiencing unexpected competition at the box office with Christian drama “War Room” pulling in a nearly identical sum from Friday showings.

“Compton” pulled in $3.8 million in Friday grosses, on track for $12 million for the weekend. This means the music drama should hit a total haul of $133 million by the end of the weekend.

Directed by F. Gary Gray and starring O’Shea Jackson Jr., the Universal-Legendary release is playing across 3,142 screens. It was made on a budget of $29 million.

Nearly on par with “Compton” is faith-based “War Room,” surprising many with its stealthy box office infiltration. The Christian drama pulled in $3.9 million on Friday across 1,135 screens, on pace for a $10 million weekend haul. Released through Sony’s TriStar label, “War Room” follows a couple who solve their marriage troubles with prayer. The pic stars T.C. Stallings, Priscilla Shirer and Karen Abercrombie.

Woody Allen Already Replaced Bruce Willis With ...

28 August 2015 6:25 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

So, Bruce Willis left the latest Woody Allen movie, and though initial reports say it was due to a scheduling conflict, the latest reports are that the Die Hard star got canned. But don't worry if you're super psyched for the neurotic auteur's next film and worried it might be delayed, because they already replaced Willis, and they landed a an A-lister to boot. According to a report from Deadline, the as-yet-untitled film has cast The Office and The 40-Year-Old Virgin star Steve Carell to take over for Bruce Willis. There's definitely a different style moving from one of these actors to the other. This will be Carell's second time teaming up with Allen, as he was also part of the director's 2004 romantic comedy-drama Melinda and Melinda. Though there is little in the way of details on this latest Woody Allen joint.he.s »

‘Hannibal’ Finale: A Last Supper That’s Not Fully Satisfying (Spoilers)

6 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hannibal” has likely had its last supper, concluding a somewhat ungainly third season that delved further into its literary underpinnings. Assuming there’s no stay of execution, the NBC series goes down as one of the most meticulously produced – and hunger inducing – in the recent annals of network TV, one that finally appeared to run out of options along with hospitable real estate.

Despite an extremely loyal cadre of fans, showrunner Bryan Fuller’s program endured various indignities during the course of its run, among them being moved to Saturday nights to mitigate ratings damage to the network. Viewing had always been low (with international financing keeping production viable), but tune-in shriveled further after its relocation. And while there was talk of a revival elsewhere, that always looked more hopeful than likely, demonstrating that Netflix and Hulu can’t always be counted upon to reheat network leftovers.

‘Hannibal’ Finale Postmortem: Bryan Fuller Breaks Down That Bloody Ending and Talks Revival Chances

6 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen the “Hannibal” season three finale, “The Wrath of the Lamb.”

Bryan Fuller’s “Hannibal” takes its leave from broadcast television in exactly the same manner in which it entered — full of style, subversiveness and some of the most cinematic imagery ever presented on the small screen.

Even fans familiar with Thomas Harris’ literary works would’ve had a hard time predicting how Fuller and his stars Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy would pull off the climax to Harris’ familiar “Red Dragon” story arc, but the team behind “Hannibal” once again made the material their own by focusing on the complex (but always compelling) relationship between Mikkelsen’s titular cannibal and Dancy’s criminal profiler, ending with a literal cliffhanger that was made a little less cruel (or more, depending on your perspective) by the post-credits stinger that saw Gillian Anderson »

Review: 'Hannibal' comes to a dark and... romantic end?

6 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

And so "Hannibal" has come to an end — at least on NBC, and probably in any kind of ongoing TV series form — with a corker of a finale that I had to discuss at length with Bryan Fuller. And I have my own thoughts on the finale coming up just as soon as I drop the mic... "See? This is all I ever wanted for you, Will — for both of us." -Hannibal Given that "Hannibal" has existed on the cancellation bubble for its entire run, Fuller says he likes to end every season with an episode that could function as a series finale if need be. But they've also been cliffhangers. Yes, ending the series with Will imprisoned for Hannibal's crimes would have been a sick joke, but there's so much more to see there; ditto ending it on Hannibal escaping the country after butchering Will and all his friends. »

‘Hannibal’s’ Bryan Fuller on the "Obscure" Finale, Movie Hopes: "There’s a Few Ways to Go"

6 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the Hannibal series finale, "The Wrath of the Lamb."]  That's all she wrote, Hannibal fans. Saturday's series finale featured Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) joining forces to take down Francis Dolarhyde, a.k.a. the Red Dragon (Richard Armitage), once and for all via a complex plan hatched in Will's head. As the former FBI consultant helped Hannibal escape prison in order to tempt the serial killer into revealing himself, Dolarhyde caught up with the men to unleash a blood bath. During the series' final scene Dolarhyde was indeed eliminated, but rather than celebrate, Will and Hannibal clutched each other on

'Hannibal's creator explains that dark, twisted and... romantic(?) series finale

6 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tonight, Bryan Fuller and company gave us the end of "Hannibal" as we know it. Even if the money and logistics can ever be worked out for some kind of movie or miniseries featuring Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy, and this creative team, the show's time as an ongoing TV series is done, and it ended in a way that functions as a conclusion to the story, even if it's one that may outrage some fans. (My finale review is here.) Earlier this week, I spoke with Fuller about that ending, potential ways he could continue the franchise, the challenges of finally doing a direct adaptation of "Red Dragon," and a lot more — including me having a very different interpretation of the post-credits scene than what Fuller intended — coming up just as soon as you take the key from around my neck...

Hannibal Finale Recap: It's Beautiful

“What have we given? My friend, blood shaking my heart The awful daring of a moment's surrender Which an age of prudence can never retract By this, and this only, we have existed.”  T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land A heap of broken images. This is Hannibal's design: “Do you know where you are in the room?” Francis asks Reba. She does. “Then you know where you are in the house.” She does. “Then you know where the front door is, don’t you?” She does. He instructs her to feel his chest – no, not what she’s thinking, just touch it. Put her hands up to his throat (“Careful”) and take the key dangling around him. He needs to know if he can trust her. He sends her to the front door, advising her not to run. “I can catch you.” She makes her way downstairs, to the door. She pauses, »

Bryan Fuller on That Hannibal Finale and the Show's Campy, Sensual Undertones

6 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Spoilers ahead for the season three finale of Hannibal. Hannibal fans: It’s all over, but what a ride we had. NBC declined to renew the show for another season, making the third season finale in effect a series finale — at least for now. Like Sherlock Holmes tumbling off of Reichenbach Falls only to return, Hannibal may very well live to eat again. Still, the finale provided an intensely satisfying end to one of the most improbable shows on broadcast television, with a grisly, gorgeously orchestrated murder, coinciding as the culmination of one of the most unconventional love stories between two men. We spoke with Hannibal’s creator Bryan Fuller about the finale — he spoke of the blue balls suffered, the camp genius of Gillian Anderson (Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier), and how we might see Hannibal return (if Martha Stewart has anything to say about it).Had you planned on »
