Oscars 2016: David vs. Goliath In Best Picture Race

1 hour ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The stage is set for a David vs. Goliath battle at the 88th academy awards.

In one corner are the Goliath box office hits that Oscarcast viewers have heard of — and maybe even seen: This year’s top three on the nominations tally are Fox’s “The Revenant” (12 noms), Warner Bros.’ “Mad Max: Fury Road” (10) and Fox’s “The Martian” (seven).

Together, they’ve amassed over $1.2 billion at the global box office.

In the other corner are the likes of Fox Searchlight’s “Brooklyn,” which was acquired at Sundance and had a production budget of $11 million, and A24’s “Room,” which is the first best picture nominee for the emerging studio.

Together, they’ve made just over $40 million at the domestic box office (though neither one is close to finished, especially with three weeks to go until the Oscars).

Blockbuster Oscar winners such as “Rocky” and “Titanic” have given way »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens passes $2bn at global box office

Star Wars: The Force Awakens becomes only the third film ever to take $2bn at the box office. It won't be toppling Avatar, though.

A month and a half after it stormed into cinemas worldwide, Jj Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens has become only the third film ever - and the first not to be directed by James Cameron - to pass $2bn at the global box office.

The movie is by distance the biggest film of all time at the American box office, where it's taken $905m (comfortably ahead of Avatar's $760m Us haul). Elsewhere in the world, it's now added $1.1bn, to give the film a running total of $2.008bn and counting. It should still attract a few more quid, before the film finally heads to disc this April.

What it won't do is dislodge Avatar as the biggest grossing movie of all time. »

Box Office: ‘The Revenant’ Tops $300 Million Globally

7 February 2016 1:24 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It was a weekend of milestones, as “The Revenant” crossed the $300 million mark globally, “The Martian” soared past $600 million and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” became only the third film in history to top $2 billion at the worldwide box office.

In addition to seeing its global total hit new heights, Fox survival saga “The Revenant,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio, topped foreign charts, picking up a leading $24 million. The story of a fur trapper seeking revenge on the men who left him in the frontier to die debuted in Spain and Brazil last weekend, earning $3.8 million and $1.8 million, respectively. The $135 million production was famously hellish, as director Alejandro G. Iñárritu drove cast and crew to the breaking point, shooting in remote locations in Canada and Argentina. “The Revenant’s” worldwide total stands at $326 million.

In addition to the financial rewards, “The Revenant’s” Oscar chances got a big boost after Iñárritu won »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens becomes only the third movie ever to gross $2 billion worldwide

7 February 2016 9:58 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having become the first release ever to gross $900 million at the North American box office this past Friday, Star Wars: The Force Awakens has now achieved another milestone, with the movie crossing the $2 billion mark worldwide today.

It’s only the third time ever that a film has reached the landmark figure, with James Cameron achieving the feat twice with Titanic ($2.187 billion) and Avatar ($2.788 billion). However, it is unlikely that The Force Awakens will have enough left in the tank to knock either of those from their current positions and will surely have to settle for third in the list of the highest-grossing movies of all time, leaving Cameron as the king of the box office world.

Box Office: ‘Kung Fu Panda 3’ Trumps ‘Hail, Caesar!,’ ‘Pride & Prejudice & Zombies’ Flops

7 February 2016 8:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood fumbled the ball during a quiet Super Bowl weekend at the multiplexes as new releases such as “Hail, Caesar!” and “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” failed to make much noise.

For the second weekend in a row, DreamWorks Animation’s “Kung Fu Panda 3” easily topped box office charts. The animated sequel added $21 million to its $69 million domestic haul. The film is playing particularly well in China, where it is being distributed by Oriental DreamWorks, a $330-million East-West joint venture. It crossed the $100 million mark in the People’s Republic this weekend after opening day-and-date in the U.S. and China on Jan. 29.

Universal’s “Hail, Caesar!,” a sendup of the Hollywood studio system from the Coen brothers, fared best among the new entrants, though that’s grading on a generous curve. It picked up a mediocre $11.4 million for a second place finish. A C-minus CinemaScore could spell trouble for the film’s long-term prospects, »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Crossed $2 Billion at the Worldwide Box Office This Weekend

7 February 2016 6:47 AM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is still flying high at the box office and passed two substantial milestones this past weekend as it continues to add to its impressive ticket sales haul.

On Friday, Star Wars: The Force Awakens earned an estimated $1.76 million at the domestic box office in North America. While that number might not seem earth shattering at first glance, the deposit pushed the film's domestic total to $900 million. No other film has ever reached $800 million, much less $900 million.

The big score came on Saturday when Star Wars: The Force Awakens became the third film in history to surpass $2 billion at the worldwide box office. The other two are James Cameron classics: Titanic and Avatar.

Despite the strong box office performance by Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it's unlikely that Titanic and Avatar will be threatened by its presence in the two billion-dollar club. The Force Awakens is »

The Week in Star Wars – The Force Awakens to hit $2 billion, Captain Phasma returning for Episode VIII, Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Kevin Smith talks Stormtrooper cameo and more

In this edition of The Week in Star Wars, we’ve got news on The Force Awakens reaching $2 billion, a confirmation of a returning character for Episode VIII, an announcement for Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Kevin Smith talking his Stormtrooper cameo and more…

Our top story this week surrounds the ambiguous Captain Phasma, played by Gwendoline Christie in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. While the character was featured heavily in the marketing for the movie, the character didn’t end up doing a lot in the movie. Well, perhaps she’ll be given more to do in the Episode VIII, which the actor confirmed she would be appearing in this week. “I will be in the next Star Wars movie. I think that’s an exclusive, actually,” Christie said at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. She »

10 film plot holes that need some explaining...

7 February 2016 2:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

It turns out Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jack Dawson didn’t have to die in the Atlantic after all. We list some other films that take suspension of disbelief a plot point too far

Jack! Come back! Rose can just budge over a bit! Yes, the third highest-grossing film of all time – the watery 1997 romance Titanic – was built on a big weepie lie. Kate Winslet admitted this week that in the climactic scene, her co-star, Leonardo DiCaprio, could have fitted on that raft after all, meaning his character Jack Dawson shivered to death in the Atlantic unnecessarily. Swizz. So in a spirit of cinematic truth-telling, here are 10 more movie plot holes we’d like closure on please…

Star Wars: The Force Awakens becomes the first movie to hit $900 million at the domestic box office

5 February 2016 1:13 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It had already taken the crown of the highest-grossing North American release of all time back in early January, and now after fifty days on screens Disney and Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens has become the first film in history to pass $900 million at the domestic box office.

“The film’s achievements are truly astounding, and it’s our great honor to relaunch this cinematic galaxy not only for all the devoted decades-long fans but for a new generation who will keep the Star Wars legacy alive for many years to come,” states Disney’s Alan Horn.

Worldwide, The Force Awakens is expected to become only the third film ever to reach $2 billion this Saturday after James Cameron’s Titanic ($2.18 billion) and Avatar ($2.78 billion).

TV: DC's Legends of Tomorrow "Blood Line" Review

5 February 2016 8:06 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

For a show that was promoted as a time travel show there hasn’t been a whole lot of it in three episodes.  Once again we the setting is still 1975 with the team still trying to figure out how to take down Vandal Savage.  Just like the pilot episodes the story plot rotates between three stories with different partnerships of the team attacking the issues.  This episode broke the team up into the best pairings yet with Rip Hunter and Sara going after Vandal Savage’s financial wealth, Stein and Ray working together to save Hawkgirl, and the trio of Jax, Snart, and Rory working together to help Snart save his dad from going to jail.

There were some cool references in this show:

- Rip says “I have seen Men of Steel and Dark Knights fall” referencing that he has seen a version or form of Superman and Batman. »

Why The 33 soundtrack is a testament to James Horner’s memory

5 February 2016 6:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sean Wilson remembers one of film music’s great dramatists James Horner with his instrumentally varied and beautiful disaster movie score…

Chilean mining drama The 33 may have generated mixed reviews, not least for its oddly international cast including Spain’s Antonio Banderas, France’s Juliette Binoche and Ireland’s Gabriel Byrne. However, it’s notable for being one of the final films scored by late, great composer James Horner. Here are five tracks reinforcing the loss a singularly brilliant musical talent.

1) The Atacama Desert

Horner’s flair with ethnic and regionally specific textures becomes immediately apparent in this exotic opening track, one that establishes the movie’s physical landscape with his customary finesse. Subdued strings, woodwinds and electronics anticipate the disaster to come whilst striking pan flutes possess a suitably earthy and authentic air. It’s a reminder not only of his acclaimed works like Legends of the Fall »

'Titanic' Shocker! Jack Could Have Lived, Admits Kate Winslet

3 February 2016 1:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Please note: this post includes a major spoiler about the conclusion of 1997's Titanic. Originally slated for theatrical release in the summer of 1997, James Cameron's Titanic was a tremendous risk at the time. Thanks to the global success of Aliens, Terminator 2: Judgment Day and True Lies, Cameron was known as an action director, so the prospect of him directing a romantic epic set on the doomed maiden voyage of the Rms Titanic in 1912 was surprising, to say the least. The shooting schedule was extended to more than five months in total and the budget reportedly expanded to about $200 million, making it the most expensive production in history. When Cameron realized that it would not be possible to finish the film in time for its scheduled release on July 2, it was...

The star of the third highest-grossing film to date voices agreement with fans who felt that Leonardo DiCaprio’s character died unnecessarily at the end of James Cameron’s Titanic. On Monday Kate Winslet finally weighed in with her take. “There was plenty of room on the raft,” said the Us chatshow host Jimmy Kimmel, to which the actor replied, “I know, I know.” She also said: “I agree, I think he could have actually fitted on that bit of door.”
