Halloween Box Office: ‘Nightcrawler’ Looks to Hold Off ‘Ouija’

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

Halloween is shaping up to be a box office dead zone.

With trick-or-treating taking place on Friday, weekend ticket sales will essentially be cut in half, analysts say, leaving the Jake Gyllenhaal thriller “Nightcrawler” and reigning champion “Ouija” to fight over the rest of the goodies.

“It’s one of those weekends where Halloween trumps everything,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak. “People are going to be pulled in so many different directions on that day. Just like when the 4th of July lands on a Friday, you’re at the mercy of the calendar.”

For now, give the edge to “Nightcrawler,” which should pull in between $10 million and $11 million when it bows on 2,766 screens. The picture focuses on the extreme lengths an ethically flexible crime journalist (Gyllenhaal) will go to in order to land a blood-splattered scoop. Reviews have been strong with critics lauding Gyllenhaal’s twisty performance, »

Kaley Cuoco Receives Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

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

Although she’s been on two long-running sitcoms in her brief 29 years, Kaley Cuoco says film roles are still somewhat elusive for her. So when she had the opportunity to audition for the role of a troubled twentysomething in independent drama “Burning Bodhi,” she was eager to prove herself.

“I got to show a completely different side of me,” Cuoco says. “No one really wants to take a chance on me like that, but I’m a very emotional person so it comes easier to me than you would think.”

Surprising audiences might be what Cuoco does best. She demonstrated as a teenager that she was more than a flash in the pan on ABC’s “8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter,” learning a few comedic tricks from her late co-star John Ritter, and has since become the comedic, maternal heart of CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory.” And on Oct. »

Remember These Lgbt Firsts on TV?

33 minutes ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Last week, a viewer complained about the "gay scenes" on How to Get Away With Murder. This week, we learned that the Cartoon Networkcensored its first gay kiss on Clarence. Still, it's 2014 and we've got shows such as Orange Is the New Black, Transparent, How to Get Away With Murder, Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and more breaking down Lgbt barriers left and right. There was a time not too long ago when having a gay character—forget a gay kiss!—caused quite the uproar and lost shows advertisers and viewers. Fast-forward to 2014 and we're hailing a show about a transgender father as the best new show of the fall. A lot can change in 40 years. All in the »

Starz Misses Q3 Revenue Projections, Confirms International Svod Launch

35 minutes ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Starz delivered a profit of $55.8 million in its third quarter but revenue of $408.2 million came in below Wall Street estimates.

In its earnings announcement, CEO Chris Albrecht confirmed the company is moving ahead with plans to launch an Svod service for its original series in selected international markets.

Overall, Wall Street had been expecting Starz to deliver Q3 revenue of around $434 million. The Q3 earnings per share of 51 cents were on target with estimates averaging 51 cents-52 cents per share.

Albrecht said Starz is seeing good traction for its new series, particularly fantasy epic “Outlander” (pictured), which bowed in August, and urban drama “Power.” Both have been renewed for a second season along with comedy “Survivor’s Remorse.”

Operating income at the Starz Networks unit climbed 4% to $99.2 million, but was offset by a $14.4 million jump in expenses for original series now in production.

. Sasha Stone takes us inside "last night’s packed academy premiere for 'The Theory of Everything'" and reports "it became clear that Eddie Redmayne has a good chance of unseating the two frontrunners in the Best Actor race, Michael Keaton for 'Birdman' and Benedict Cumberbatch for 'The Imitation Game.' The way the Best Actor race usually works is that it’s inextricably linked to Best Picture. This is the case almost every year but especially lately.

5 Things to Know About World Series Hero Madison Bumgarner

43 minutes ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

At just 25, he might already be the best pitcher in World Series history. Madison Bumgarner almost single-handedly led the San Francisco Giants to baseball's world championship over the past 10 days, winning two games as a starting pitcher earlier in the series before throwing five innings of scoreless relief Wednesday to clinch the deciding Game 7 over the Kansas City Royals. It was a staggering performance, though not the first postseason success for this 6'5", 230-lb. October phenom. Still, the handsome, soft-spoken North Carolina native lives a relatively quiet life when he's not dominating batters from the pitcher's mound. Below, check out »

Apple CEO Tim Cook Comes Out Publicly: "I'm Proud to Be Gay"

58 minutes ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

On Thursday in his first person piece written for Business Week, Cook proclaims, "I'm proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me." Cook "never denied my sexuality," he writes, but he hadn't "publicly acknowledged it either, until now." He explains this was because he wanted "to maintain a basic level of privacy," and that he likes "keeping the focus on our [Apple] products and the »

"Sometimes you have to die to be larger than life," says a character of Hereafter, the passion project from CBS' VP of late night Vinnie Favale that officially opened at New York City's Snapple Theater this past weekend for an unlimited commercial run. The musical, which follows three heartbroken women who meet with a medium in the hopes of communicating with lost loved ones, doesn't necessarily answer the question of whether heaven, hell or both do exist, but it does theorize on another postmortem topic: those who leave this world are held back after death by those still alive
