'Captain America' Tops Box Office Top Ten for Third Week as Depp's 'Transcendence' Flops
This Easter weekend three religious-themed films made the Top 10, led by new opener "Heaven Is for Real" (Sony) which barely missed taking the #2 spot despite playing in more than 1,000 fewer screens than the box office leaders. This unheralded low-budget effort reinforces the most significant trend of 2014 so far: faith-based films nabbing substantial audiences (even "Noah" got a piece of this action). For the third week running, the top film is "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" (Marvel/Buena Vista), which looks to be among the year's very best grossers, particularly worldwide. But with three other openers falling below expectations, particularly Warner Bros.' "Transcendence," once expected to be a top spring hit, the overall weekend total is disappointing. The $118 million total marks an uptick from the same calendar weekend last year, but falls $20 million below last year's earlier Easter. Way over expectations is the year's penultimate specialized opener, "Fading Gigolo" »

'The Hateful Eight': Quentin Tarantino says he's still working on the film
The Hateful Eight isn’t dead after all.
Quentin Tarantino vowed to kill the project – a Wyoming-set, post-Civil War western — when the script was leaked in January.
“I’m going to publish it , and that’s it for now,” the director said at the time. “I give out to six people, and if I can’t trust them to that degree, then I have no desire to make it. I’ll publish it. I’m done. I’ll move on to the next thing. I’ve got 10 more where that came from.”
But at an all-star reading of The Hateful Eight script on Saturday, »

Disney Crosses $1 Billion Overseas in Record Time
Fueled by whammo performances from “Frozen” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” Disney has crossed the $1 billion mark this weekend at the international box office, marking the fastest time the studio has ever done so.
So far, “Captain America” has grossed a whopping $586 million-plus globally, of which $385.1 million comes from overseas markets — a massive improvement over the original.
Though “The Winter Soldier” has impressed to date, the Mouse’s far-and-away stand-out player has been Disney Animation’s “Frozen,” which this weekend became the highest-grossing film internationally, with $729.3 million, surpassing “Ice Age: Continental Drift” (with $715 million in 2012).
“Frozen” has defied expectations in nearly every market: For instance, in Japan, where anime usually reigns supreme, the Disney toon has amassed an outstanding $104.1 million locally, making that territory the film’s largest contributor outside the U.S.
South Korea is the toon’s second-largest international territory, with $76.9 million, followed by the U.K. »

Match: Tribeca Review
New York — Playwright/filmmaker Stephen Belber returns to sex, lies and audiotape in Match, the adaptation of a play that, like his earlier work Tape (itself adapted in 2001 by Richard Linklater), is a three-hander in which people try to trick each other into owning up to long-buried transgressions. Sunny and open where Tape was sealed up tight, this film is less psychologically gripping; while it offers some provocative moral quandaries, it serves mostly as a showcase for Patrick Stewart, playing a Juilliard dance teacher whose past has come to haunt him. Stewart should ensure that attention is

‘Heaven Is for Real’ Rides Faith-Based Wave to Big Easter Score at Box Office
When it comes to faith-based movies at the box office, “Heaven Is for Real” is the latest to show that smaller may be better, at least in terms of return on investment. The drama, based on the 2010 best-selling Christian book written by Kansas pastor Todd Burpo and conservative author Lynn Vincent, scored an Easter weekend surprise with its strong $21.5 million three-day haul, and has taken in more than $28 million since opening on Wednesday. That's a major score for Sony and producers Joe Roth and pastor Thomas “T.D.” Jakes, who produced “Heaven Is for Real” for $12 million and »

Sharyl Attkisson: CBS News Resistant Toward Criticizing Government, Corporations
Sharyl Attkisson leveled strong, but carefully worded, criticism on Sunday against her former employer CBS News, describing a pattern where stories that painted the Obama administration or corporate interests in an unflattering way faced resistance at the network. "It did get to the point were there was not a lot left for me to do," Attkisson reiterated about her employment during an interview with Brian Stelter on CNN's Reliable Sources. The investigative reporter alleged a culture among some sectors at CBS News that was hesitant toward airing a story critical of the government and singled out "the producers that decide
