DVD & Blu-ray This Week: 'Seventh Son', 'The Loft' & Tons of Brand New Release Dates

26 May 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There is very little to discuss in terms of new releases this week, especially since I haven't seen the two new Costa-Gravas titles or Rainer Werner Fassbinder title from Criterion, which lead off the "Even More" section below. I have, however, updated the upcoming release schedule with several new titles including Ex Machina, the "Rogue Cut" of X-Men: Days of Future Past, Insurgent and Slow West. Hopefully there's something that catches your eye. The Loft I never saw this, but the way Universal treated it pretty much said all I needed to know. Then I talked to someone that did see it and I know to stay away for good.

Seventh Son This one I did see and it is quite the trainwreck.

NBA's Kenny Smith -- Knicks Are Cursed ... Lakers Are Relevant

20 May 2015 7:14 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

The NY Knicks must have done something terrible to someone in a past life, 'cause they're more cursed than the John Madden cover ... so says "Inside the NBA" star Kenny Smith.  Of course, Smith's reacting to the Knicks getting the #4 pick at Tuesday night's NBA Draft lottery ... after getting beat out by Minnesota (#1), the Lakers (#2) and Philadelphia (#3).  Fyi -- the way the lottery works, the teams with the worst record have the best odds to »

Box Office Weekend: Furious 7 an April Success Story

6 April 2015 10:16 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

For anyone who ever said sequels are tired, old, and only a matter of diminishing returns, there is the Fast and the Furious franchise. Only getting more and more critically acclaimed as each new entry comes out, the latest, Furious 7, not only did well with critics, but at an absolutely bang-up estimated weekend of $143.6 million broke numerous April box office records and is already poised to be the highest earner in an already high-earning series. It made mincemeat of Home, the top draw of last week, which pulled in an estimated $27.4 million and is still struggling to make back its $135 million costs. And while it was in second-place last week, Get Hard appears to have been almost all but forgotten this weekend with an estimated $12.9 million and, with $57 million in domestic earnings, will probably end up a middling effort at best.

Remaining in fourth, Cinderella, with an estimated $10.3 million, »

Lindsay Lohan’s D-List Ex Details How Terrible of a Boyfriend He Was in New Book

1 April 2015 11:05 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Lindsay Lohan has had her fair share of hot Hollywood romances — many of which were only discovered last year via her leaked list of famous conquests. In a sea of names like Colin Farrell and Heath Ledger, put your thinking cap on and try to remember Lohan’s ex-boyfriend Calum Best. Still drawing a blank? Best was the sexy English bad boy Lohan dated in 2007 aka her wildest of wild days. Now, the 34-year-old D-lister is trying to clean up his life by continuing to hang on to her coattails.

The Gossip Table reports Best’s new memoir Second Best: My Dad And Me details his “combustible” time with Lohan, including the night he was caught him in a hotel room, doing drugs with multiple prostitutes while wearing nothing but a towel. Congrats on being the worst boyfriend of all-time, Calum! Do you want a medal or a monument? »

Box Office Weekend: Box Office Goes (for) Home

29 March 2015 10:14 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Critics considered it decidedly average at best, but that did not stop DreamWorks’ latest effort Home from being the big box office winner of the weekend with an estimated $54 million. It, however, has a long way to go to make back its $135 million costs (and that includes foreign box office), while the similarly excoriated Get Hard, with Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, got an estimated $34.6 million, but has much less ground to make up against a $40 million budget. Both may have won out this weekend to the previous top earners, but The Divergent Series: Insurgent and its estimated $22.1 million and Cinderella and its estimated $17.5 million are still two of the three biggest overall draws at the box office, with Cinderella both the current highest top earner and a winner with critics.

It Follows opened to wide release this weekend, the extremely critic-friendly horror film opened to an estimated $4 million, which does not sound like much, »

DreamWorks Animation’s Home Brings In $54 Million At Weekend Box Office

29 March 2015 2:32 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Home was number at the box office this weekend with an estimated $54 million. The PG animated family movie stars Jim Parsons, Rihanna, Steve Martin and Jennifer Lopez.

Rentrak’s Senior Media Analyst Paul Dergarabedian commented, “There’s no place like ‘Home’ when it comes to this weekend’s box office as the DreamWorks Animation release distributed by Fox added $78 million globally, topping the international chart & leading the charge in its first weekend in North America for a combined worldwide total to date of $102 million. Another PG-rated movie marked a milestone as Disney’s hit live-action fairytale ‘Cinderella’ crossed the $300 million threshold this weekend with an impressive total to date of $336.2 million.”

20th Century Fox’s Kingsman: Secret Service also crossed the $300 million mark with $328.4 million.

Warner Bros. Pictures comedy Get Hard, starring Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell, brought in an estimated $34.6 million and took the number two spot at the box office. »

Weekend Box Office: 'Home' Soars Past 'Get Hard' To the Top Spot

29 March 2015 5:35 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Jake Coyle, AP Film Writer

New York (AP) - Business was brisk at the weekend box-office, where the DreamWorks animated alien adventure "Home" beat out the Will Ferrell-Kevin Hart comedy "Get Hard" with a resounding debut of $54 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.

While the two films had been expected to vie for the top spot at North American theaters, "Home" came in well above expectations, handing DreamWorks Animation a much-needed hit. Though a distant second, "Get Hard" also opened strongly with an estimated $34.6 million, rewarding the Warner Bros. pairing of two of the most bankable stars in comedy.

Last week's top film, the young-adult sequel "The Divergent Series: Insurgent," slid to third with $22.1 million.

With a $100 million-plus debut expected next weekend for "Furious 7" - a franchise built on street-racing adrenaline and a diverse cast - Hollywood scored with two films that sought a variety of audiences. »

Box Office Weekend: Insurgent Surges, Gunman Lacks Caliber

23 March 2015 6:40 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

With Young Adult fiction making good bank at the box office, it should be no surprise that the dystopian Divergent movies are moving along well with a first-place finish for The Divergent Series: Insurgent and an estimated $54 million to start the weekend right, even if critics are lambasting it. It is not getting as much flak as The Gunman; debuting in fourth with an estimated $5 million, the Sean Penn led action film may be brought to the theaters by the makers of Taken, but it is doing nowhere near the business of the Liam Neeson franchise, and its lack of reported budget is very telling.

Cinderella may not be first this time around, but a second-place estimate of $34.5 million is not looking shabby for the Kenneth Branagh-directed fairy tale, doing good box office here and abroad. Run All Night, on the other hand, with a second weekend estimate of $5.1 million, »

Cinderella's sweeping entry to box-office ball marks next stage for Disney Princess brand

18 March 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In this week’s instalment of our series tracking the global box office …

Cinderella follows in Frozen and Maleficent’s footsteps

• American seniors market promises rejuvenating effect for Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Run All Night hints at termination of Liam Neeson’s action-man persona

Frozen’s stupendous $1.27bn worldwide take was bound to prompt an escalation for the Disney Princess brand – the one female-focused component of its bulging franchise slate – and Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella adaptation is the next instalment. Close in style and tone to the 1950 animation (whose $85m Us gross would be worth $824.2m today), it’s opened almost neck-and-neck ($67.9m) with Frozen ($67.4m) and Maleficent ($69.4m), though behind Alice in Wonderland ($116.1m). Perfectly sound, considering it lacks the star casting of the latter two – and surely a promise of a firm $200m+ Us base for the film’s international run.

Box Office Weekend: Cinderella Has $70 Million Opening Ball

16 March 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Sometimes, there is simply no winning against Disney and Buena Vista. The new, live action Cinderella proved a big boost to a flagging weekend box office, pulling in an estimated $70.1 million – a strong start against a $92 million budget. Nothing else even came close, with the Ed Harris/Liam Neeson thriller Run All Night opening with a rather weak $11 million estimate in comparison, and an unreported budget is not helping matters. Beyond that, things dropped below the $10 million threshold; even Kingsman: The Secret Service bumping up a place to third from last week only garnered an estimated $6.2 million. But in the end, counting worldwide gross, it is proving a decent success at the box office.

In fourth and fifth place, respectively, Focus and Chappie both pulled in about $5.8 million, and cost roughly the same to make, but by far Focus is more successful, especially when taking worldwide gross into account ($101.7 million to $56.7 million). However, »

Box Office: 'Cinderella' has a magical $70 million weekend

15 March 2015 10:16 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It didn't reach the heights of "Oz: The Great and Powerful" or "Alice in Wonderland," but you can bet the executives at Walt Disney Studios are overjoyed at the opening of their live action version of "Cinderella" this weekend. Kenneth Branagh's adaptation of the classic fairy tale opened to a magical $70 million to easily take the no. 1 spot at the weekend box office.  "Cinderella" reportedly played to a massive 77% female audience and earned an A Cinemascore grade.  The family flick will have some competition next weekend as "Insurgent" is poised to steal some of its teenage girl and twentysomething female audience, but "Cinderella" is already a hit that will contribute to all aspects of the Disney empire. Debuting far behind in second place was Jaume Collet-Serra's "Run All Night."  The Liam Neeson thriller earned a positive A- Cinemascore grade and mixed to positive reviews, but earned just $11 million over the three-day. »
