The Divergent Series: Insurgent will outperform the original film, even though that one was terrible. I liked this a lot more, so it should be a lively podcast on Friday as Brad gets mad. I'm going with $18k per theater, $68.4 million, or about a 30 percent jump. That's aggressive, but slotting this against the Ncaa Tournament was pure genius. The Gunman looks D.O.A., even more so than Run All Night. The trailers could not look any worse, Sean Penn creeping around in the shadows with a gun. I'm putting it at $8.4 million, but even that might be kind. Like that scene in The Big Lebowski, there's just no bottom here. Do You Believec Not really, no. Well, okay, I believe in the sense that with only 1,300 theaters it's punching well above its weight. As per normal, these religious titles are basically impossible to predict as they rely on actual human marketing. »

Longmire is an absolute anomaly in the world of television, which could have something to do with the fact that it was pulled from A&E, despite consistently high ratings for the network. It’s also the reason that it was something of a no-brainer that it would be picked up by someone else, and season four will air on Netflix later in the year.
Where the first two seasons pulled us slowly into the depths of Sheriff Walt Longmire’s life on the sprawling plains of Wyoming, the third season is like the hammer blow that follows the slow, methodical wind-up.
The second season ended by bringing a lot of forces to the fore in a move of plot construction that brilliantly weaves angles and conspiracies into a show that actually makes it difficult to look away. The third season spins this all together, but uses a mode of »

Halloween may be over seven months away, but on the set of Rob Zombie's 31, the autumnal season is in full force and trick-or-treaters could pop up at any minute. Filming began yesterday on 31, Rob Zombie's Halloween-set horror film that takes place on the horror-soaked holiday at a place called Murder World. In recent weeks several key cast members have been added to the fright film and yesterday another big-name addition was announced: Malcolm McDowell.
In addition to playing Dr. Samuel Loomis in Rob Zombie's Halloweeen (2007) and Halloween II (2009), McDowell has played memorable characters aplenty in his legendary career and is perhaps best known for playing Alex in Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange. Now he'll add the character of Father Murder to his résumé. Announced by Zombie on his Facebook page, Father Murder is the "owner of Murder World", the sinister setting of the film where five kidnapped »

The wonderfully underrated Longmire completed its third season last year and was then canceled by A&E for reasons beyond understanding. After some protracted negotiations amidst a fury of wronged fans taking to social media to save the series, Netflix announced they have picked up the series for a fourth season to air later this year.
Burbank, CA (February 23, 2015) – The stunning skies of Wyoming, and the mysteries beneath them, have never been more enthralling than in the unfolding episodes of Longmire, the popular A&E-turned-Netflix television series. Those cinematic visuals and intense situations have also never looked better than in the full 1080p HD presentation of Warner Archive Collection’s Blu-ray™ release of Longmire, Season 3, available now via your favorite online retailers.

It’s been a long, crazy ride. That seems to be a sentiment echoed every year as the Oscar season comes to a close, having seen so many contenders become pretenders, front-runners changing with the announcement of every new precursor, and records kept or broken. It’s hard to put into words just what this year truly meant, and only time will tell if the academy’s choices really were the right ones, but for now, here are some of the things that stuck out as highlights: -Break- 1. Julianne Moore has an Oscar … at last! “Far from Heaven.” “Boogie Nights.” “The Hours.” “The End of the Affair.” Those are just the films for which Julianne Moore lost at the Oscars. There’s also “Safe,” “Magnolia,” “Short Cuts,” “The Kids Are All Right,” “The Big Lebowski,” “Children of Men,” and any number of great performances she wasn’t »

Jorge R. Gutierrez made his feature directorial debut with Book of Life, a charmingly designed, beautifully sincere musical comedy about The Day of the Dead. It’s a good picture, and will be remembered for more than scooping Pixar and their similar film.
As reported at Deadline, Gutierrez has made a deal to keep working with animation house Reel FX. Their next project doesn’t yet have a title, but it has a genre. In fact, it has several. It’s going to be a Kung Fu Space Western.
Here’s some concept art, which suggests the film will take place on some kind of Old West style generation starship. Where the Kung Fu comes into it isn’t at all obvious from this image.
The storyline apparently revolves around “the galaxy’s most charming outlaws, the leader of a funny, ragtag crew of rebel bandits that are put on »

6th Update, Monday Actuals, 3:20 Pm: Paramount’s SpongeBob SquarePants: Sponge Out Of Water came in with $635K less than its weekend estimate reported yesterday of $56M. Still, it’s a great gross for this time of year, especially when there aren’t a lot of kids out of school. Per Rentrak, only 1% of all K-12 and college students were off this Friday. That figure moves to 17% this Friday, and then 15% for the February 20-22 frame.
As reported this morning, Warner Bros./Village Roadshow’s Jupiter Ascending dropped ducats and is now filing $18.37M while Universal/Legendary’s Seventh Son is a $100K better with a $7.2M actual. They’re in for a hammering this coming weekend as two R-rated mass-appeal pics hit the sked: Universal’s long-awaited E.L. James bestselling adaptation Fifty Shades Of Grey at an estimated 3,600 theaters and 20th Century Fox’s Kingsman: The Secret Service on »

Chicago – I can’t decide which is worse: the “fake deep talk” from Jeff Bridges in “Seventh Son” or the “angry whisper talk” from Eddie Redmayne in “Jupiter Ascending,” which also opened on Friday. Both speech impediments are ugly fish out of water, both films are getting punished by critics and both are underperforming at domestic box offices.
Ironically, both movies have also also been quite delayed and now we see why. “Jupiter Ascending” opened two days ago after initially being slated to open in July 2014. That film’s push back was justified to finish its extensive special effects, which “The Matrix” creators did without remembering to fix its laughable acting and weak story.
Also knowing it was in trouble, “Seventh Son” was originally supposed to open way back in Feb. 2013, but the film was pushed back once and then a second time to Feb. 2015. It even changed distribution »

Ben Barnes is the title character in this month's Seventh Son, and we have an exclusive interview with the actor about his latest project. Watch as he answers our questions, like what it was like to be in the film that reunited The Big Lebowski's Julianne Moore and Jeff Bridges, and why he likes making films in the fantasy genre. Post by PopSugar. »
Following a lengthy wait, Seventh Son has finally made its way to theaters. The epic fantasy centers on a professional spook (Jeff Bridges), who takes a dashing young apprentice (Ben Barnes) under his wing as the two prepare to face the end of the world. Together they square off against Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore) and her army of deadly minions.
At a recent New York press conference for the film - Bridges, Moore and Barnes discussed their personal connections to their roles and how themes of fate and destiny have played out off-screen.
This film talks a lot about destiny and fate. How much has fate played a role in your lives?
Jeff Bridges: Destiny and fate? You guys wanna go first on that one?
Ben Barnes: Nobody wants to go first on that! »

From toilet-based scares to nasty encounters in the shower, here's a selection of 17 memorable moments of terror in the bathroom...
Nb: the following contains potential spoilers and scenes which may be considered Nsfw.
The scariest moments in horror are often the most intimate - this is why knives are a far nastier, button-pushing instrument of death than the gun. As the Joker famously put it in The Dark Knight, “You can savour all those little emotions...”
Intimacy may be the key to understanding why, in horror films, so many dreadful things tend to happen in bathrooms. The bathroom is often where we go to be by ourselves - either to answer the call of nature, brush our teeth, or simply relax in the bath after a hectic day at work. Equally, the water closet also sees us at our most vulnerable: naked, or at least with our trousers down, and »
In "Seventh Son," Ben Barnes plays the seventh son of a seventh son, a mystically indebted apprentice who goes on the road with Jeff Bridges, who plays a Spook, the last of a dying breed of knights who defends the innocent from the ghastly forces of darkness (led, in this case, by an incredibly over-the-top Julianne Moore as a fearsome witch). Barnes's Tom follows the Luke Skywalker trajectory of starting off as a slightly above-average farm boy to becoming the savior of the land.
And Barnes has some history with this kind of thing, having starred in the "Chronicles of Narnia" movies (with far more benevolent beasts). When we got to speak to Barnes about "Seventh Son," we asked him about how he came aboard the project, what it was like working with Bridges and his comely costar Alicia Vikander (don't worry - if you don't know who she is, »

A lifelong — or, at least, acting-career long — dream of Julianne Moore’s has finally come true.
“I’ve always wanted to play a wicked witch,” Moore says over the phone. “I think all of us always want to do that.”
Of course, the freshly Academy Award-nominated star of Still Alice is not talking about her role in that acclaimed film (more on that in a bit). Rather, she’s referring to Mother Malkin, an evil sorceress and sometimes dragon who’s out to destroy a medieval fantasy world in this month’s Seventh Son.
“It was great to play somebody that was so unambivalent about what she wanted,” Moore, 54, says of her part in the magic-and-monsters epic that co-stars Jeff Bridges as a veteran witch whacker and Ben Barnes (The Chronicles of Narnia’s Prince Caspian) as his young apprentice, the seventh boy of the title. The film was shot mostly in Vancouver, »

Dark magic, witches and “the Dude” (Jeff Bridges’ famed role in “The Big Lebowski”) prevailed at a special screening of Universal Pictures’ epic fantasy adventure “Seventh Son” in New York City on Friday night.
The film’s stars, Bridges and Julianne Moore — last seen together onscreen in the Coen brothers’ 1998 cult classic, 17 years prior — reunited at the Crosby Street Hotel for the first time since “Seventh Son” wrapped in 2012. The movie’s release was long delayed after Legendary Pictures parted ways with Warner Bros., originally on board to distribute the project.
With Bridges and Moore back together, the red carpet was abuzz with “Big Lebowski” talk. Is a follow-up to the slacker comedy in the works? Would Bridges ever bring back “the Dude”?
“Oh God yes, I would do a sequel,” Bridges told Variety. “I’ll do anything the Coen brothers ask me. I take that very seriously. But there’s nothing official… »

Director: Paul Thomas Anderson; Screenwriter: Paul Thomas Anderson; Starring: Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Katherine Waterston, Reese Witherspoon, Benicio del Toro, Jena Malone; Running time: 148 mins; Certificate: 15
With masterpieces like Boogie Nights and Magnolia tucked under his belt, Paul Thomas Anderson's new movies are inevitably threatened by the huge burden of expectation. A bold director who never shies away from a challenge, Anderson's latest effort tackles Thomas Pynchon's supposedly unfilmable novel Inherent Vice and bears all the hallmarks of his finest work – a terrific ensemble cast, acutely observed visual detail and a labyrinthine plot that weaves together disparate and desperate figures. Sadly on this occasion, such individually strong components fail to gel together as a whole and provide a consistently engaging experience.
The intriguing period at the start of the 1970s is the canvas for the story, which involves a stoner private detective known as 'Doc' (Joaquin Phoenix »
