‘American Sniper’ Soars to Super $64 Million in 2nd Week at Box Office

9 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Johnny Depp’s “Mortdecai” and George Lucas’ “Strange Magic” bomb as Jennifer Lopez scores with “Boy Next Door

The Iraq War saga “American Sniper” soared like a superhero movie at the box office, with a $64.3 million second weekend in wide release that would make any caped crusader proud.

The Clint Eastwood-directed telling of the tough return home by Navy Seal Chris Kyle, played in the movie by Bradley Cooper, continued its electrifying run with the best second weekend ever by an R-rated movie. In the process, “American Sniper” hit the $200 million mark in domestic grosses just 10 days after earning nominations for Best Picture, »

Box Office: ‘American Sniper’ Tops With $64.4 Million, ‘Mortdecai’ Flops

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

Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper” continued its box office dominance this weekend, picking up $64.4 million and steamrolling over everything in sight, including Johnny Depp.

Depp’s latest exercise in cinematic oddities, “Mortdecai,” left audiences cold, earning a paltry $4.1 million across 2,648 locations and coming in ninth on box office charts. It’s an embarrassing performance for a star of his caliber and comes on the heels of box office disasters such as “The Lone Ranger” and “Transcendence.”

“Something needs to click soon,” said Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst at BoxOffice.com. “It’s a couple of misses in a row and that always stings.”

Mortdecai” cost $60 million to make and was backed by OddLot Entertainment and released by Lionsgate. It had been expected to gross in the neighborhood of $10 million.

Much of the Sunday afternoon box office quarterbacking will center on Depp’s deflating career, but “American Sniper’s” endurance was the true stunner. »

John Ostrander: Secret Convergence Wars

12 hours ago | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Starting April 1, DC Comics is launching its new meta-Crisis series, Convergence, in which characters from different planets and timelines will be thrust together on the Blood Moon to fight fight fight. In May, all of Marvel’s multiverse will go blooey with bits and pieces being recombined into a single place called Secret Wars: Battleworld and, no doubt, every one will fight fight fight. Worlds/characters will live, worlds/characters will die, and nothing will ever be the same yet again.

It’s the same concept as DC’s Crisis on Infinite Earths back in 1985 (and Convergence, at least in part, is a thirty year Anniversary celebration of that event). For you young’uns who weren’t around, Coie was a 12 issue maxi-series with a very real purpose – to modernize and re-boot the DC Universe and continuity.

To be honest, I think that’s a necessity every so often for every continuity. »

Star Wars spin-off movie rumoured to feature Boba Fett and Han Solo

14 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve heard reports that Gareth Edwards’ upcoming standalone Star Wars movie would feature Boba Fett, and we’ve heard reports it would feature Han Solo. So what’s the next logical step? That it will feature Boba Fett and Han Solo? Yep, you guessed it…

It looks like Latino-Review is covering both bases by reporting that the fan-favourite bounty hunter and intergalactic soundrel will both feature in the movie, and that a young Han will somehow end up involved with the bounty hunters hired to steal the plans to the Death Star. The rest of their report reads like pure speculation, so we should probably file this one firmly in the back of the rumour cabinet for the time being.

The first standalone Star Wars movie is set for release in 2016, with Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) directing. Gary Whitta (After Earth) penned the original script, which Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past »

'Better Call Saul!' creators: 'It was not just a joke, but a potentially good idea.'

20 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As I said in my review of AMC’s “Better Call Saul!” I approached the “Breaking Bad” prequel with some skepticism about whether it could work, before ultimately being pleased with the first three episodes. Two other men who had deep and long-lasting concerns about the viability of the project? That would be “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan and producer Peter Gould, who wrote the episode that introduced Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman. As the two men discuss in this interview I did at press tour, a Saul spin-off was something they had been talking about — half in jest, half not — going back to “Breaking Bad” season 3, but the actual show went through many iterations before it evolved into its current form as a light-hearted drama series dealing with a younger Saul (or Jimmy McGill, as he went by back then) trying to establish himself as a defense lawyer in Albuquerque. »

Will Gareth Edwards' Star Wars Movie Feature Both 'Boba Fett' And 'Han Solo'?

22 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

At various points, every character from Jabba the Hutt to Yoda to Jar Jar Binks (okay, maybe not the last guy) has been mentioned as the possible focus of one of the planned Star Wars spin-offs in the works at Lucasfilm/Disney -- but the prevailing rumor about the plot of Gareth Edwards' first standalone flick was that it would tell the tale of Boba Fett and his gang trying to retrieve plans for the first Death Star. Now, Latino Review claim to have some new information that puts Han Solo and his iconic ship, the Millennium Falcon, right there along with the enigmatic bounty hunter and his pals. This does make sense, as we've been hearing conflicting reports on which of the two classic characters this first spin-off would be about, and that might simply be because they'll both be involved. In the original trilogy it was definitely »

15 Most Hotly Anticipated Movie Scenes Coming In 2015

24 January 2015 2:41 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

With the distraction of January now almost out of the way and the traditional dump month releases about to be washed out of memory by the excitement of the Oscars, it won’t be long before the real business of 2015’s tentpole releases kicks off. And as years go, the next twelve months has the potential to be one of the best in recent memory, provided the promise of the likes of Star Wars, Marvel’s slate and the new Bond are all realised. For some, that is a big ask.

Taken 3 might already have taken a preposterous $180m worldwide, but the first big release won’t hot cinemas until March (unless you count Fifty Shades Of Grey or Jupiter Ascending, which frankly you probably shouldn’t for various reasons). In honesty, it’s hard to look at the next twelve months and identify a traditionally “quiet” month; blockbusters »

More "Star Wars" Fett, Solo Spin-Off Rumors

24 January 2015 2:40 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following the news earlier this week about at least four actresses testing for the female lead in Gareth Edwards' untitled "Star Wars" spin-off film, more rumors have surfaced revealing further potential details about the story.

Possible Major Spoilers Ahead

First up, Latino Review reports that according to their sources, both Boba Fett and Han Solo will be featured in this untitled spinoff. Said film will Not revolve around stealing the plans for the first Death Star as had been previously indicated, but rather is reportedly set before that adventure.

They say the story will deal with the relationships between Han, Boba and other criminals - specifically The Hutts. Said spin-off could also be used to "kick off a new series of Star Wars movies."

Elsewhere, Making Star Wars reports that the film will be shot in Mexico, and that "bounty hunters are important to the film." Crew members are »

Video: Watch The Avengers Cut In The Style Of Zack Snyder's Watchmen Trailer

24 January 2015 6:02 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Last week, we shared a very impressive Star Wars/Age Of Ultron trailer from YouTube editor, The Unusual Suspect. It seems he's been up to his old tricks again, delivering another entertaining little mash-up. This time, he turns his focus on Joss Whedon's original Avengers movie and Zack Snyder's Watchmen. The video features footage from Marvel's 2012's smash hit, re-cut in the style of Snyder's epic trailer - arguably one of the best Cbm teasers of all time. Check it out below: Perhaps what's most impressive here is the way he manages to seemlessly blend together two movies with such contrasting tones. It's also always great to hear that Smashing Pumpkins theme again. The Unusual Suspect has been making waves for some time now. If you haven't already, I'd recommend you check out some of his other works over on his channel. What did you guys think? Are »

Review: 'Stockholm, Pennsylvania' can't survive the dreaded suspension of disbelief

23 January 2015 10:20 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Park City — Nikole Beckwith's new drama, "Stockholm, Pennsylvania," which premiered Friday at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, asks a number of questions surrounding the provocative subject matter of child abductees. How would a young woman who has spent 17 of her 23 years captive in a basement adjust to living in the real world? And, more controversially, is this a better "life" than what she was experiencing before? For Lea (Saoirse Ronan), returning to a family she has no memory of isn't just jarring, it's an alien experience. Beckwith begins by reintroducing Lea to her parents Marcy (Cynthia Nixon) and Glen (David Warshofsky), who are, understandably, overjoyed to see their only daughter after so many years. In an extended sequence set in the family living room, we immediately realize Lea — born Leanne — has no real understanding of what has happened to her, the outside world or how she should act in the company of these two relative "strangers. »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Stockholm, Pennsylvania’

23 January 2015 8:02 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Austere and unnerving, Nikole Beckwith’s stir-crazy “Stockholm, Pennsylvania” picks up where most kidnapping thrillers leave off: the moment the victim is returned home to her parents. Everyone in town sees the reunion as a happy ending, but Beckwith senses otherwise, delving into the painfully drawn-out process of trying to rebuild bonds both sides had 17 years to forget. While such a sensitive psychological approach has the potential to delve deep, the treatment lacks the dramatic thrill of a traditional endangerment story, offering rich parts for Saoirse Ronan and Cynthia Nixon, but precious little access to their inner thoughts — and less to grab the attention of general audiences.

Ronan has it especially tough, playing a character who has spent the better part of her childhood living in a disturbed man’s basement. Seen almost exclusively through the traumatized girl’s eyes, her almost benevolently portrayed captor, Ben McKay (Jason Isaacs), stole »

Julia Roberts To Produce, Star In Batkid Movie

23 January 2015 2:59 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Breaking: Not even Oscar-winner Julia Roberts can resist Batkid fever. The actress and producer just closed a deal to adapt Batkid Begins, the Slamdance premiere documentary about the 5-year-old leukemia patient who got his wish to be a superhero granted when thousands of volunteers, and even President Obama, helped turn San Francisco into Gotham City for a day.

On November 15, 2013, youngster Miles Scott became the hero Gotham needed and deserved as 25,000 supporters across the city, and even more on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, tracked his heroics through a series of staged missions. The event culminated with Scott receiving the key to the city from Mayor Ed Lee and sparked media attention and more than 400K tweets in 117 countries, reaching over 1.84 billion social media users.

Roberts is attached to star in the feature remake as well as produce with her Red Om Films partners Lisa Gillan and Marisa Yeres Gill. Batkid »
