Making all of your nightmares come true … Varèse Sarabande will be releasing A Nightmare On Elm Street 8-cd box set (limited 2000 units) on October 16, 2015.

This deluxe package contains all 8 soundtracks from the original series, over 8 hours of music including almost 3 hours of bonus tracks.  New artwork has been commissioned for the set (by artist Shawn Conn, http://atomicdeadguy.com/), and configuring the sleeves together forms a larger piece of art.  Before you have any nightmares, please don’t worry … the original Matthew Joseph Peak creations are included in the packaging.

The set comes complete with the trademark knitted Freddy sweater encasing the outer box.

The world was introduced to Wes Craven’s Freddy Krueger (portrayed by Robert Englund) in 1984 with A Nightmare On Elm Street.  Krueger was a former child killer seeking revenge against the parents who burned him by haunting the dreams of their teenage children and killing them in their dreams. »

Why Did 'We Are Your Friends' Have One of the Worst Openings of All Time?

31 August 2015 2:50 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Zac Efron's "We Are Your Friends" was unfriended by most of the country this weekend. The Edm movie, co-starring Wes Bentley and Emily Ratajkowski, was released on 2,333 screens but only made $1.8 million. That's not just short of the $8 million projection, it's also the worst wide-release launch of Efron's career and one of the worst openings of any studio film ever.

Entertainment Weekly culled the list of the top 10 worst wide-release movies ever, and "We Are Your Friends" ended up at No. 3, just behind "Delgo" and "Oogieloves In The Big Balloon Adventure." This movie actually did worse than the much-mocked "The Adventures of Pluto Nash" and marks Wes Bentley's second time on the list, since he was also in the horror movie "P2."

According to Variety, Warner Bros. only spent $2 million to acquire "We Are Your Friends." Warner Bros. distribution executive vice president Jeff Goldstein commented on the opening: "We're disappointed, »

Weekend Box Office: Compton Tops the Competition Again

30 August 2015 8:28 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

It was another quiet weekend at the North American box office as Universal Pictures’ Straight Outta Compton stayed put at number one for a third straight weekend. Three new films entered the fray this weekend, but only the faith-based drama War Room made any sort of impact. Fellow newcomers No Escape and We Are Your Friends made little to no impact. Business was down 26% from last weekend’s weak numbers and down a steep 24% from last year at this time.

Now playing on 3,142 screens, Straight Outta Compton added an estimated $13.2 million to Universal’s coffers. Off 50% from last weekend, Compton currently stands at $134.1 million and is still on track to wind down its run with a remarkable $165 million. Compton joins fellow 2015 Universal releases Furious 7 and Jurassic World to hold the number one spot for three straight weeks.

'Straight Outta Compton' Takes 3rd Weekend Box Office Win

30 August 2015 3:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As expected, Universal Pictures' runaway hit Straight Outta Compton secured its third straight win at the box office this weekend, taking in $13.2 million. The big surprise, though, was the over-performing faith-based drama War Room, which earned second place with an estimated $11 million, according to Box Office Mojo, out-grossing major studio new releases No Escape and We Are Your Friends (which didn't even crack the top 10), with far less publicity and advertisement. Neither movie was expected to put up huge numbers, considering the last weekend of the summer movie season is always light on box office returns, but War Room's performance is still impressive, nonetheless.

War Room opened in the least amount of theaters of any movie in the top 10, scoring the best per-screen average of all films this weekend with a $9,692 average from 1,135 theaters. The drama, which centers on a mother who turns to faith to try and save her family, »

Box Office: 'War Room' shocks 'Straight Outta Compton' by winning Friday

29 August 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Another faith based movie came out of "nowhere" to shock Hollywood at the box office on Friday. That's narrative you'll see in most stories about "War Room's" performance, but it may be more about the entertainment media ignoring the consistent performances of faith based movies more than anything else. "War Room," which was distributed by Sony Pictures division TriStar Pictures, took in $3.875 million on its first day to knock "Straight Outta Compton" from the top spot for the first time in 15 days.  "Room" was directed and co-written by Alex Kendrick whose last two films, "Courageous" and "Fireproof," each earned over $33 million during their theatrical runs.  Moreover, "Room" looks like it will slightly exceed the $9.1 million "Courageous" earned over its first three days in 2011.  As with all of Kendrick's productions, the marketing is aimed at churches and religious groups on a grass roots level which flows under the radar for those covering the biz. »

Box Office: Zac Efron Trounced by Faith-Based Film ‘War Room’ on Thursday

28 August 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Zac Efron’s “We Are Your Friends” was pummeled by the faith-based film “War Room” on Thursday night.

Sony’s Christian drama launched with $600,000 at 1,017 locations at Thursday preview screenings, while Warner Bros.’ DJ movie generated a mild $175,000.

We Are Your Friends” expands to 2,333 locations on Friday. It’s expected to take in about $9 million this weekend, while “War Room” has been forecast for a launch in the $5 million range. “War Room,” which is going out through Sony’s TriStar label, has been the leader in advance sales in recent days.

However, Universal’s “Straight Outta Compton” is set to top the box office for the third consecutive weekend with roughly $15 million.

The Weinstein Co.’s political thriller “No Escape,” which opened Wednesday with $1.2 million at 3,007 theaters and adds 343 locations Friday, should also gross about $9 million for the Friday-Sunday period.

We Are Your Friends” is firmly pegged at younger women, »

No Escape | Review

24 August 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

American in Peril: Dowdle Bros. Play on Base Fears with Survival Drama

It’s unfortunate so many superficial elements are working against the objective consideration of No Escape, beginning with its potentially problematic casting of an unwavering comic star as the lead in what promises to be a pulse-pounding thriller. Add to this a flurry of uneasy marketing elements, including dreadfully cheesy poster art, corny taglines, borrowing a title from a likeable 90’s sci-fi flick starring Ray Liotta, and the potential of this latest effort from the Dowdle Bros. (Quarantine; As Above, So Below) promises the making of an undeniable turkey.

Despite all of these unfavorable buzz-killing aspects, the film manages to be an unfathomable rarity in that it manages to overcome all of these red-flag detractions as an uncomfortably tense survival thriller. Though not without a certain amount of quibbling in reference to its sometimes problematic ‘truths’, such as »

‘No Escape’ Review: Owen Wilson Saves His Family in This Slick, Racist Thriller

24 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Splendid form doesn’t necessarily mean equally noteworthy function: When film school professors screen the works of Leni Riefenstahl and D.W. Griffith, it’s for the craftsmanship and not for the messaging. It’s up to history whether or not future students categorize “No Escape” alongside the work of those earlier auteurs, but it’s fair to say that this new movie combines genuine filmmaking skill and effective action editing with a queasily racist subtext, one in which a bloody revolution in Asia only matters insofar as some white people might get killed. You may recall “The Impossible,” the recent tsunami movie in which the. »
