‘Ouija’ Says Yes To $19.8M, ‘John Wick’ Chases In $14.4M, ‘St. Vincent,’ $7.7M Blessing – Final B.O. Weekend

27 October 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Final Update, Monday, 2:25 Pm: The finally tallies are in with Universal’s horror film Ouija and the Keanu Reeves’ actioner John Wick winning the No. 1 and No. 2 spots, respectively. St. Vincent, which went wide, did okay for The Weinstein Co. With terrific exit polling, it should get some more play. In their second weekends, Sony/Qed’s Fury held well (-44%) as did Fox’s animated The Book of Life (-41%). Relativity’s The Best of Me wasn’t as lucky (-54%). Noteworthy: We’ve included the grosses for the Bollywood heist film Happy New Yea from our own sources as Rentrak did not report for it. There are still no official numbers for the the film which we know tallied biggest opening weekend in Indian Cinema history (per its producer). Strange as to why they are not touting the numbers and reporting them as soon as possible, but »

Weekend Box Office: 'Gone Girl' Officially Tops 'Annabelle' for #1

6 October 2014 1:44 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

By a margin of only $378,854, Gone Girl was the #1 film at the box office this past weekend, just barely topping the horror prequel Annabelle. Based on an average ticket price of $8.15 that's a margin of only 46,485 tickets. As I wrote yesterday, this is a great result for both films as the Gone Girl opening is the highest opening for a David Fincher film at $37.5 million. Meanwhile, the opening for Annabelle at $37.1 million is the highest for a horror film in 2014 and only $4 million shy of the opening for the film's predecessor, The Conjuring, which will have its own direct sequel next October. Heading into the weekend I would have guessed these two films would have been neck-and-neck around $27-28 million, but they sure proved me wrong. Of course, while Gone Girl is on top in terms of the amount of money taken in, when you count its $61 million budget versus the $6.5 million budget for Annabelle, »

The top 25 must-see movies of 2015

2 October 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Next year’s full to bursting with potentially brilliant geek films, so to help, here’s our pick of 25 must-see movies out in 2015…

Compiling a list of next year's most exciting films is extremely difficult. What do you put in? What do you leave out? Those are some of the questions we've had to ask ourselves as we drew up the long-list of our most anticipated films of 2015. In an attempt to limit the number of sequels which can fill up a list such as this, we've left out something like Fast & Furious 7, even though we're fairly sure it'll be a lot of fun. With but two significant exceptions, we've excluded some of the films we were looking forward to this year that have been delayed until the next, such as Kingsman: The Secret Service and Frankenstein. 

What we're left with, we hope, is a fairly broad selection of action and comedy, »

Laggies Review [Tiff 2014]

12 September 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lynn Shelton’s latest indie dramedy, Laggies, not only comes with the largest budget that the director’s ever worked with, but also the first script she did not pen herself (written instead by Andrea Seigel). Set on the outskirts of Seattle, the film tracks Megan (Keira Knightley), a young woman out of graduate school, working as the underemployed “sign girl” for her father’s tax firm and as she describes it, “floating,” through life. Still hanging out with the high school friends she went to prom with and dating the same high school sweetheart, Keira has a crisis of confidence when her boyfriend (Mark Webber) attempts to propose to her at a friend’s wedding.

The early representations of Megan friends paint the group as square and simple. A joke Megan makes a bout a Buddha statue’s nipples offends her one friend (portrayed effectively by the perpetually underused »

3 'Equalizer' Clips Put Denzel Washington in the Line of Fire

5 September 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Former black ops agent McCall delivers a pair of broken and bloodied sunglasses to a Russian mob member, threatening his boss as the search for a missing Russian prostitute continues in the first of three clips from the upcoming action thriller The Equalizer. Denzel Washington stars as a trained killer in hiding who is forced out of retirement to help a young girl on the streets. Here, we also see McCall's kinder side as he helps a friend clean-up fire damage which may have been caused by the gangsters he is hunting. The third and final clip introduces Chloe Moretz as Teri, a beat-up prostitute looking for solace, which she finds in a very understanding McCall. Check out this buffet of footage before The Equalizer hits theaters later this September.

Robert McCall is a solitary, ex-special ops, monastic figure who despises injustice and devotes himself to helping victims of criminals. »

Fall Movie Preview: September 2014

5 September 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The summer movie season is officially over, and this weekend we finally head into fall. Most of these impending new releases are vying for that elusive Oscar gold or any other semi-prestigious award being presented. We start this cinematic journey by looking at all the upcoming movies September has to offer. This first fall month is a little overcrowded, promising a fine mix of genre fare. We have a couple of Academy worthy dramas making their debut, an untested family franchise starter, a handful of comedies, yet another Ya novel adaptation, an action epic based on a cult classic TV show, the return of an iconic trio and one independent coming-of-age shocker that promises to push the boundaries of everything that has arrived before it. Hold onto your seats...

Here are this September's can't miss releases:

4 September 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Hitting cinemas in the UK and the USA on the 26th September, The Equalizer sees Denzel Washington play Robert McCall, a role made famous by the late, great Edward Woodward in the superb 1980s original series of the same name. Updating the story for and directing for a modern audience is acclaimed filmmaker Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), while Robert Wenk (16 Blocks) tackles the screenplay.

Washington plays McCall, a former black ops commando who has faked his death to live a quiet life in Boston. When he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), he finds himself face to face with ultra-violent Russian gangsters. As he serves vengeance against those who brutalize the helpless, McCall’s desire for justice is reawakened. If someone has a problem, the odds are stacked against them, and they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help. He is The Equalizer. »

Denzel Washington & Chloe Grace Moretz Have a Heart-to-Heart in This 'Equalizer' Preview (Exclusive)

4 September 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Denzel Washington's new rock-'em sock-'em thriller "The Equalizer" is the unlikely opener of this year's Toronto International Film Festival, a lavish, ten-day-long affair that features hundreds of movies, of every flavor, texture, and genre from all over the world.

This is a festival that caters specifically to its audiences, though, with the audience award winners usually going on to capture Oscar gold as well, and in that respect, "The Equalizer" is a perfect choice -- it's going to get the people whooping. In our exclusive clip, though, which takes place in the calm before the storm, you'll get to see Denzel bonding with a young prostitute, played by Chloe Grace Moretz.

The sequence is just a minute long, although this might be the only minute in the entire movie when Denzel Washington isn't brutally kicking someone's butt. Washington plays a lowly worker at a Home Depot-style home improvement store »

Latest Poster & Trailer For ‘The Equalizer’

3 September 2014 11:20 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The cinematic adaptation of hit Edward Woodward show The Equalizer is almost upon us. With Denzel Washington giving it his Man On Fire Best, the film looks to be a decent and brutal action film in which a former black ops agent comes out of retirement to rescue a young girl. The title comes from the fact he likes to restore the balance somewhat, kind of like Darth Vader when he throws the Emperor down that chasm. Antoine Fuqua reteams with Washington, and if Training Day is anything to go by then this looks set to be a hard hitting and explosive film. Hell, it even has Washington being a cool guy and not looking at explosions.

The Equalizer is released 26th September and stars Denzel Washington, Marton Csokas, Chloe Grace Moretz, David Harbour, Haley Bennett, Bill Pullman, and Melissa Leo.

Producer Todd Black Talks Tailoring the Role for Denzel Washington, Long Dialogue Scenes, Franchise Potential, and More on the Set of The Equalizer

3 September 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last August, when director Antoine Fuqua was filming The Equalizer outside of Boston, I got to visit the set along with a few other reporters.  Adapted from the 1980s TV series of the same name, the pic reteams Denzel Washington with his Training Day director as he plays a former black ops commando who comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl (Chloe Grace Moretz).  Soon thereafter, things go south and he finds himself squaring off against violent Russian gangsters.  The film also stars Melissa Leo, Martin Csokas, Haley BennettDavid Harbour, and Bill Pullman.  I learned a lot about the movie on the set visit and walked away thinking the film could turn out great, especially with Washington playing an ass-kicking hero defending folks that need help.  When Sony test screened the movie, the pic scored huge numbers and they’re already prepping a sequel, which »

All Things Being Unequal Here’s a New Trailer and Poster for The Equalizer

3 September 2014 7:47 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Do you need more things equal in your life? Then you’re in luck with this new trailer and poster for The Equalizer who really should be working hard on the gender divide rather than sticking it to a few low-level pimps but this is Hollywood after all.

Denzel Washington steps back into pissed-off older man territory, shouldering up to Liam Neeson and Harrison Ford, but the man has got form – Training Day (also with Equalizer director Antoine Fuqua) for one.

And though a generation of us mourn Edward Woodward it’s no surprise to see Sony throwing a spotlight on this one for the kids of today. Washington is joined by Chloe Moretz who needs to do something special after If I Stay and Carrie in order to regain the spark she had with Kick-Ass.

Here’s a trailer, which looks suitably nuts.
