‘The Hunger Games’ Should Rule Holiday Box Office Given Social-Media Strength: Adobe

13 November 2014 8:00 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The Hunger Games’ next installment, Mockingjay Pt. 1, is headed to a big holiday box office win, if social-media support is any indicator of the strength of its fan base and their interest in the property, says Adobe’s Digital Index analytics unit in its latest look at a season of blockbusters.

Interstellar, Dumb And Dumber To and the last of The Hobbit trilogy, The Battle Of The Five Armies, all are also headed to profitable domestic runs, Adobe says, but Exodus: Gods And KingsRidley Scott‘s Biblical tale, better pray for fan enlightenment a month out from its debut.

And one last unexpected bit: Adobe analysts say The Imitation Game, an indie biopic featuring Internet darling  Benedict Cumberbatch (also the voice of the dragon in The Five Armies), is a “potential surprise hit,” even as the Weinstein Company pushes it for Oscar glory in some unexpected sectors.

Weekend Report: Disney's 'Big Hero 6' Eclipses Nolan's 'Interstellar'

9 November 2014 12:40 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

In what could be considered a minor upset, Disney Animation's Big Hero 6 took the top spot at the box office this weekend ahead of Christopher Nolan's sci-fi epic Interstellar.Playing at 3,761 theaters, Big Hero 6 opened to $56.2 million this weekend. That's up 15 percent from fellow Disney Animation movie Wreck-It Ralph, which opened to $49 million around the same time in 2012. Big Hero 6 also had the second-highest animated opening of the year ahead of How to Train Your Dragon 2 ($49.5 million). This is undeniably a strong start for Big Hero 6: it's rare that an original animated movie opens to $50-million-plus. By promoting the unique, humorous robot Baymax, Disney managed to get huge turnout from family moviegoers (they represented 72 percent of attendance this weekend). Still, there was an assumption that Frozen's phenomenal success had elevated the Disney Animation brand to a new level, and that didn't exactly prove true this weekend. »

Fox Surpasses Four-Year-Old Box Office Record; No. 1 Heading Into Holiday Season

28 October 2014 1:26 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Bouyed by the success of a tremendous slate of films that has included X-Men: Days Of Future Past, Gone Girl, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, The Maze Runner, The Fault In Our Stars, How To Train Your Dragon 2, Rio 2 and Son Of God (to name a few), 20th Century Fox has beaten a four-year-old domestic box office record for its highest-grossing year ever. Already. It’s also edging closer to breaking an international box office record as well.

In 2004, Fox scored $1.48 billion; this year its slate has been even more explosive to help the studio cross the $1.5 billion mark. That record was set October 19 with Gone Girl pushing past $100 million. If we include Fox Searchlight, which released the box office favorite The Grand Budapest Hotel in March, the studio is actually up to $1.62 billion (that’s through yesterday). The studio is, of course, still the box »

Parents & Frequent Moviegoers Are Desensitized To Violence, Sex In Film; Likely So Is MPAA Ratings Board: Study

20 October 2014 12:01 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

After surveying 1,000 parents exposed to multiple clips of on-screen sex and violence in movies, a study found that parents become increasingly desensitized to acts of sex and violence with repeated viewing which appears to lead to an increasing acceptance to both. The result is that these parents are less likely to shield their kids from movies that contain sex and violence. In addition, the authors note that people who rate movies for the MPAA (themselves parents) could also be subject to the same desensitization “and thus more likely to be lenient when it comes to evaluating the appropriateness of such content for children.” Those behind the study said this effect could help to explain the “ratings creep” that has allowed more violence into films aimed at our youth.

The MPAA has long acknowledged that its standards have shifted over time but has traditionally attributed this to the changing standards of parents. »

Holiday Movies Try to Save the Year’s Box Office

15 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood will spend the rest of 2014 trying to dig itself out of a very deep box office hole, with ticket sales sputtering behind last year’s windfall.

The difficulty is that the upcoming holiday season isn’t just battling the ghosts of Christmases and Thanksgivings past. The studios are trying to recover from the worst summer moviegoing season in nearly a decade — one that left overall revenue down nearly 5% and admissions down more than 5% from last year. In order to make up that ground, the fourth quarter will have to exceed last year’s $2.7 billion haul by more than $400 million.

“It’s not very likely that we’ll catch up with last year unless we have some knock-it-out-of-the-park hit,” says Bruce Nash, founder of box office tracking site the Numbers. “A movie like ‘Interstellar’ wouldn’t just have to be huge — it needs to be gigantic if it’s going »

Natalie Dormer signs up for zombie flick Patient Zero

25 September 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Game Of Thrones star – who plays Margaery Tyrell – has signed up to star in Patient Zero, about “an unprecedented global pandemic that causes the evolution of a new species”. Austrian director Stefan Ruzowitzky (Deadfall) will take the hot seat with Mike Le (W.M.D.) writing the script and Vincent Newman (We’re The Millers) producing. Deadline broke the news but no other information regarding Dormer’s character has been released yet.

The early synopsis reads:

“An aggressive form of rabies turns the infected into predators, addicted to violence. An inexplicably gifted human survivor with the ability to speak the new mutant language leads a hunt for Patient Zero and hope for a cure.”

Since her stint on the Game of Thrones, Dormer has appeared in a number of highly successful feature films including Rush, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 & 2 and Captain America: The First Avenger. She has also appeared in Elementary – the U. »

Game Of Thrones star joins new zombie movie

24 September 2014 10:36 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Game Of Thrones' Natalie Dormer is to star in the upcoming zombie movie, Patient Zero...

Yesterday, we had the news that Charles Dance and Lena Headey were signing up to feature in the film of Pride And Prejudice And Zombies. Not one to be outdone, one of their Game Of Thrones colleagues, Natalie Dormer, is signing up to a zombie project of her own.

Dormer, who also features in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, is set to join the cast of Patient Zero, a film set in a post-outbreak zombie apocalypse. It tells the story of a man who has the talent of being able to talk to the undead, and in doing so, he looks for a cure for his infected wife.

Stefan Ruzowitzky, who directed the excellent The Counterfeiters, is at the controls of this one. Mike Le has penned the screenplay, and we'd imagine the plan is »

The Hunger Games finale is right around the corner (the first part, anyway), Ridley Scott's Exodus looks to deliver the epic, and Peter Jackson will finally be closing his overlong Hobbit trilogy as well. Not to get lost in the shuffle, Christopher Nolan will deliver his latest opus, Interstellar, in »

Empire's Winter Preview Cover Is Here!

The October issue of Empire magazine hits newsagents shelves both literal and digital this week, and contained inside is an essential guide to the films that will be rocking your world this winter, led by David Fincher's Gone Girl, Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods And Kings and Francis Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.But it's Fincher's film that is front and centre on this month's cover, as the director tells us, "I want to make a date movie that results in at least 15 million divorces. We were constantly trying to walk that line; I want it to work and live in the area of slightly tongue-in-cheek, but also morally repellent. I liked the idea of the audience coming in going, 'I know what this is,' and then it goes horrendously off the rails - for everybody involved."There is much more »

Ridley Scott’s The Martian Slotted For November 2015

2 August 2014 6:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ridley Scott is gunning for an Oscar – and if this fall’s buzzy Exodus: Gods and Kings doesn’t get him to that Dolby theatre stage (as it probably won’t, given the slew of competitors including Inherent Vice, Unbroken, Gone Girl and Interstellar), he’s already lined up his next attempt. The Gladiator director’s next film, sci-fi drama The Martian, has been shifted from its March 2016 date and set for a prime awards-season release date of November 25th, 2015.

That’s a big show of confidence in the project from 20th Century Fox. And perhaps the studio has good reason to be excited, seeing as Warner Bros.’ space-set drama Gravity shaped up into a major awards-season juggernaut last year. Based on the eBook by Andy WeirThe Martian follows an astronaut who becomes stranded on the Red Planet. With depleting oxygen and slimming options, he must reach his crew »

Emmys Drama Preview: Why Serials Knocked Procedurals Out of the Race

31 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It seems obvious to say, yet it’s still a striking thought: A procedural drama, historically a staple of television, is unlikely to ever win another best series Emmy — and, indeed, will probably struggle even to get nominated.

That’s reflected in this year’s nominees — all of them serialized — highlighting an appetite for such storytelling that has permeated not just television, where it has found its deepest and most satisfying roots, but multiple forms of entertainment.

Indeed, modern-day film franchises have adopted a serialized approach, as evidenced by the book-to-screen successes that have become such lucrative annuities, from “Harry Potter” and “The Lord of the Rings” to “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games.” Where James Bond’s adventures were once crafted into largely stand-alone affairs, the latest run starring Daniel Craig adopted a trilogy-like connection more reminiscent of Jason Bourne than vintage incarnations of 007.

There are many suspects for why »

Comic-Con 2014: Hollywood’s Highs, Lows and No-Shows

28 July 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the place where Hollywood now launches the marketing campaigns around its upcoming films, TV shows and videogames — like “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” to smaller films like “The Giver” and “Horns,” along with new and returning TV shows “Game of Thrones,” “Flash” and “Gotham” — this year’s Comic-Con revealed the runaway successes and upcoming headaches for the industry’s marketers.

Here are the biggest takeaways from the fanfest that wrapped Sunday:

“Jupiter” Descending: Warner Bros. had a bigger problem beyond the need to complete special effects sequences when it made a last minute decision to move sci-fi actioner “Jupiter Ascending” from the summer to February 2015: a lack of interest in the movie. A trip to San Diego’s Comic-Con won’t help. A presentation in which star Channing Tatum’s mic didn’t work and the Wachowski siblings weren’t present, »

6 Best & 6 Worst Historical Movie Epics Of The 2000s

15 July 2014 5:41 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

The first trailer for Ridley Scott’s upcoming Exodus: Gods and Kings landed earlier this week, and it certainly seems like a return to familiar territory for the veteran director, who has helmed several big-budget epics over the last decade. While the trailer itself was a little underwhelming, it did boast the stunning visuals we’ve come to expect from Ridley Scott movie and an impressive cast led by Christian Bale that also features Joel Edgerton, John Turturro, Ben Kingsley, Aaron Paul and Sigourney Weaver.

Ever since the director resurrected the genre with Gladiator at the turn of the millennium, the historical epic has had a patchy track record at the box office to say the least, and it remains to be seen how his latest effort will fare. Exodus will need to be a great movie to stand any chance of commercial success, with a release »

First Look At Jamie Dornan’s Christian Grey In Fifty Shades Of Grey

18 June 2014 7:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As much as it pains me to write this, one of the most anticipated book adaptations hitting screens in the near future – right up there with new Divergent and The Hunger Games installments – is Fifty Shades of Grey, based on a Twilight-fanfiction-turned-erotic-romance that somehow became the fastest-selling paperback of all time. Fans of the steamy book by E.L. James are likely scrutinizing the web daily for news about the adaptation, though very little has come out about the movie since it wrapped production in February. Today, however, those fans will be thrilled to get their first real look at mysterious billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), whose Bdsm-fueled romance with college student Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) powers Shades and two other books.

Dornan wasn’t the first choice for the tricky role - Pacific Rim star Charlie Hunnam was originally cast but dropped out due to scheduling conflicts with FX’s Sons of Anarchy. »
