Rogue One Crosses $1 Billion at the Worldwide Box Office

22 January 2017 1:39 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney was probably never worried that spending more than $4 billion to buy Lucasfilm back in 2012 wouldn't pay off, but now they can rest easy knowing it was a great investment. Star Wars: Rogue One, the first standalone Star Wars anthology movie, has officially crossed the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office. No matter how you look at it, that makes the movie a big success and should give the Mouse House a lot of confidence that Star Wars can be a massive cash cow for them for many years to come.

According to Box Office Mojo, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has grossed a grand total of $1.011 billion, with this weekend's estimated take factored in. Even when factoring in the reported $200 million production budget and the surely large promotional budget, that makes Rogue One a very profitable movie for Disney and Lucasfilm. Not only that, but save »

16 January 2017 9:05 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Never let it be said that James Cameron doesn’t give it everything he’s got when he undertakes a project. After making Titanic in 1997, he also expanded upon his deep sea diving expeditions for several documentaries on the subject – contributing to the development of new technology, and breaking records. When he made Avatar, he developed no fewer than four sequels to tell a broader story – and plans to shoot them consecutively from 2018 to 2023. Before he gets to that, however, he will deliver a six-part documentary series to AMC, focusing on the genre of science fiction – James Cameron’s Story Of Science Fiction, to be precise – about which he is so very passionate.

The limited series will comprise of six hour-long episodes, and each instalment will ask a single question. The show will then examine how that question has been addressed by popular culture, such as film, television, video games, »

Rogue One Dethrones Finding Dory as 2016's Domestic Box Office Champ

15 January 2017 1:51 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

4 billion dollars seems like a lot of money no matter what way you look at it, but that's what Disney paid to acquire all of Lucasfilm back in 2012. The purchase was primarily so that they could make Star Wars movies until most of us are dead or they are no longer profitable. If Star Wars: Rogue One is any indicator, they are going to be profitable for a very long time, because it has just passed Finding Dory at the domestic box office

According to Box Office Mojo, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has now made Just shy of $499 million domestically, which puts it above Pixar's Finding Dory, which made $486 million during its run last summer. Finding Dory still has the latest Star Wars movie beat worldwide, but that will probably change soon. As of right now, Star Wars: Rogue One has made $979.9 million worldwide and Finding Dory finished up with $1.02 billion. »

12 January 2017 1:40 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If you grew up in the ’90s, there’s a 99% you had a crush on Leonardo DiCaprio (hellooo, Jack Dawson). That’s the case for singer-actress Keke Palmer, who took her nostalgia for the actor to the next level when she wore a pair of leather chaps covered in cutouts of his face while out in N.Y.C. last month.

We get it: Who wouldn’t want to have Leo attached at the hip all day? But we still had to ask the Scream Queens star about her risk-taking, head-turning fashion choice at the launch of her ShoeDazzle x »

The Abyss needs a Blu-Ray release (and a DVD Release in the correct aspect ratio)

7 January 2017 2:19 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Despite having helmed both the highest and second highest grossing films of all time with Avatar and Titanic, James Cameron's superior 1989 underwater sci-fi-drama-thriller The Abyss is still in need of a Blu-Ray release. This is made all the more pressing by the fact its DVD release is butchered by its anamorphic aspect ratio being pillar-boxed on both sides -- this means a rather low resolution and squashed-in presentation of what is an otherwise gorgeous and mesmerising-looking film with some of the most extraordinary special effects shots of the 1980s.  There's nothing more aggravating than putting in a DVD or Blu-Ray that you've bought with your own hard-earned money and finding out it's not in the correct aspect ratio. This little first world problem is...

New Documentary Claims It Was A Fire That Sank The Titanic

Everybody knows the Titanic sank after hitting an iceberg during its maiden voyage — spawning a super-successful Leonardo DiCaprio movie nearly a century later.

New Titanic Documentary Claims Ship Sank Due to Fire

4 January 2017 2:38 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

This article originally appeared on EW.com.

The sinking of the Titanic is perhaps the most well-known maritime disaster of all time, but a new documentary claims the widely-believed cause — a fatal collision with an iceberg — isn’t entirely true.

In Titanic: The New Evidence, an upcoming hour-long documentary on the Smithsonian Channel, new evidence suggests that it was actually a coal fire which caused the 1912 disaster. Whether viewers are generally intrigued by all things nautical — or fans of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet’s blockbuster Titanic — the documentary promises to capture their attention with newly unearthed photos detailing »

Rob Legato clearly loves a challenge. His two Academy Awards are for supervising the visual effects of both “Titanic” and “Hugo,” two films that featured complex and realistic computer graphics. Both films might pale, however, to the work his team pursued for director Jon Favreau’s “The Jungle Book.” And now, the critically acclaimed spring blockbuster is on the shortlist for this year’s Best Visual Effects Oscar.

Top 10 performances directed by Martin ScorseseTop 10 performances directed by Martin ScorseseShane McNeil1/4/2017 11:30:00 Am

On January 6th 2017, Martin Scorsese's passion project Silence finally hits the big screen.

Based on the Japanese novel by Shûsaku Endô, Silence tells the story of two Jesuit priests who face torture and persecution after traveling to Japan to find their mentor and spread the word of Catholicism. It's bound to be a heavy handed film, and with Scorsese directing, we wouldn't be wrong to expect another masterpiece from the legendary filmmaker.

Here he directs stars Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver and Liam Neeson, the three of which look to be Oscar contenders for their performances. While none of them have been nominated by the Golden Globes or the Screen Actors Guild, there's a good chance the very late in the year release of Silence (it plays just in time in New York and Los »

Jan. 25, 2002: A Walk to Remember (15 Years)

While fans are crying over Mandy Moore’s Golden Globe-nominated performance on NBC’s hit new series This Is Us, it was just 15 years ago that they cried over her performance in the weepy adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ book about a girl with cancer who falls in love with a rebellious classmate.
