Pride review

28 July 2014 10:42 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Why a British film about the 1984 miners' strike, and a lesbian and gay support group, is the comedy of the year to date...

The truth, goes the saying, is often stranger than fiction.

Pride, for instance, is set in 1984, and tells the story of a small group called Lsgm, or Lesbians And Gays Support The Miners. Said group sparks into life in the midst of a Gay Pride march in London, when a 20-year old by the name of Mark Ashton (Ben Schnetzer) argues that miners have been as badly treated by the establishment as they have, and thus starts collecting money. As it turns out, quite a bit of money.

The problem? Once that money is raised, finding a community of miners willing to accept the cash is easier said than done. Manly miners taking money off a gay support group, in a period when prejudice - as the »

13 July 2014 11:03 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With over £10m banked and counting, BBC Films has confirmed it wants a sequel to Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie...

News

The unstoppable charge of Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie at the UK box office continues, with the film now having banked over £10m, and continuing to draw in audiences. It's little surprise then that BBC Films, who backed the project, is keen for a follow-up, even if there isn't one quite ready to go just yet.

Christine Langan, the head of BBC Films, was asked by Flickering Myth if plans were being pushed forward for a sequel. "I should think so", she admitted, "but there is nothing formal yet". She added that "I'm sure Brendan [O'Carroll] is working on a story of where we can take the character and I know we'd all be up for doing a sequel. But I can't confirm at this time".

Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie will 'hopefully' have sequel

11 July 2014 4:45 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The BBC has expressed an interest in a sequel to Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie.

Head of BBC Films Christine Langan told Radio Times that she is hopeful that the sitcom spinoff will receive a second instalment.

Langan said that writer and performer Brendan O'Carroll "is wonderful to work with", adding that "the audience love him and we would want to keep that relationship going".

Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie has been very commercially successful, topping the British box office chart for two weeks. The film sees Mrs Brown fighting to save her market stall from a ruthless developer.

On the possibility of a sequel, Langan said: "I wouldn't be surprised [if there was a sequel]. There isn't a script as far as I know. But I very much hope that he will come up with a sequel and I don't imagine he won't.

"It's great fun - he's good at it. He has got a huge audience. »

Mrs Brown's Boys star for Mrs Merton-style chat show?

7 July 2014 2:53 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Mrs Brown's Boys could be about to spawn a new chat show.

According to The Mirror, the BBC is keen to capitalise on the success of the sitcom as soon as possible.

The chat show would reportedly be similar to The Mrs Merton Show, which saw Caroline Aherne starring as an elderly host causing mayhem.

However, talks for the series are reportedly in the early stages.

Mrs Brown's Boys - starring Brendan O'Carroll as Mrs Brown - has been a runaway hit for the BBC. Meanwhile, this summer's big-screen adaptation Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie was a huge success at the UK box office - despite mixed reviews from critics.

Elsewhere, Mrs Brown's Boys will be going back on tour next year, with a huge arena tour taking the comedy show around the country in the spring, summer and winter.

Mrs Brown’s Boys: D’Movie: The film is out and it's dreadful

3 July 2014 11:24 AM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

Asked to comment on the international success of Mrs Brown’s Boys recently, Brendan O’Carroll explained his view that Irishness can travel well, with reference to his cultural forebears. “We have to have more faith in the audience,” he said. “Look, Sean O’Casey’s plays have toured all over the world. Ulysses is required reading at universities all over the world. Somewhere along the line, that inferiority complex set in.” »

New poster lands for The Inbetweeners 2

3 July 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Soz, Oz. The Inbetweeners hit Australia...

Poster

Much of the focus this week has been on the box office numbers that Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie has been generating at UK cinemas. But it's still got a long, long way to go to match the business drummed up by The Inbetweeners Movie.

In fact, we suspect it'll do well to get anywhere near the cash that the incoming The Inbetweeners 2 makes as well. The new film arrives in cinemas on August 6th, and a brand new poster for it has just landed. Fairly conventional stuff, granted, but we're still expecting the film to be a huge, huge hit at the British box office....

Transformers 4, Mrs Brown's Boys, and criticising fans

1 July 2014 9:04 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The success of Transformers 4 and Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie is having an unpleasant side effect...

Feature

This weekend just gone saw two critically-reviled movies top the box office charts of the Us and the UK. In America, Michael Bay's fourth and longest Transformers movie, Transformers: Age Of Extinction, hit the number one spot, eating up around $100m of business in its opening weekend. And that's just in America. The film has hit $300m worldwide, and it lands in British cinemas this weekend.

It might find unexpected competition, however. For over the weekend here in Blighty, Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie, a far more economical enterprise than Mr Bay's latest opus, helped itself to a staggering £4.3m in its first weekend. It crushed The Fault In Our Stars, the previous number one, and outperformed any number of blockbuster films in their opening weekend. Mrs Brown's Boys is a genuine movie smash hit. »

The film's box office performance has outpaced recent TV-to-film adaptation Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa, which opened to £2.2 million last summer.

However, Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie still falls some way short of matching the The Inbetweeners Movie, a big earner in 2011 with a £13 million first-weekend haul and £57 million in cumulative box office takings.

Elsewhere in this week's chart, new releases Chef, How to Train Your Dragon 2 (not on full release in Scotland and Ireland) and jukebox musical Walking on Sunshine all made it into the top ten. »

‘Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie’ Earns Massive £4.3m In Opening Weekend In UK & Ireland

1 July 2014 3:19 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It was a film that they refused to screen for critics, hence why you haven’t seen a review on our pages, but the British (and Irish) cinema-going public lapped up Mrs Browns Boys D’Movie this past weekend with the film grossing a huge £4.3 on its first three days out there. The movie, sorry, d’movie, which cost just $3.6 million to make, looks like it’s going to enjoy a solid run on home soil, pretty much guaranteeing a sequel in the coming years.

Here’s the official release from UK distribs Universal, applauding the success, and rightly so.

Monday – 30th June: Agnes Brown is queen of the box office! Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie is the #1 movie in the UK & Ireland, taking £4.3 million in its opening weekend and breaking records to become the largest opening of an Irish film in Ireland. Audiences have been turning out in »

Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie opens to £4.3m in UK

30 June 2014 7:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

For the second time today, critics be damned! Mrs Brown's Boys is now a major UK box office hit.

News

It seems apt on a day when we write a post about how Michael Bay's latest Transformers film has proven itself critic-proof at the Us box office, that we also highlight a film that's pulled the same trick in the UK.

With no press screenings ahead of release, Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie opened in UK cinemas on Friday, and promptly proved that you don't need to have transforming robots to defy critical opinion (critical opinion that was hardly split, we should note). The film opened to a staggering £4.3m opening weekend, knocking The Fault In Our Stars off the top spot.

To put its opening into some context, that's nearly double the £2.2m opening of Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa last year, and more than half what Edge Of Tomorrow »
