It Primed To Topple The Exorcist As Highest-Grossing Horror Pic In Film History

20 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The past fortnight has been a whirlwind for Warner Bros. and New Line’s It reboot.

Arriving off the back of a smart, measured marketing strategy – Bill Skarsgard ostensibly went into hiding in order to maintain the aura and mystery surrounding Pennywise – It set the global box office alight, collecting a record $123 million in North America on opening weekend.

That proved to be the first domino to fall, as the Andy Muschietti-directed pic has since chewed through practically every box office in its path to stardom, and Deadline today brings word of what is arguably It‘s most impressive feat yet. With its domestic haul of $223 million, the first chapter in New Line’s two-part Pennywise saga is within touching distance of toppling The Exorcist ($232.9m), which has clawed onto the title of highest-grossing horror pic ever since 1973.

There are, however, two caveats to that historic feat. First and foremost, »

10 Best Stephen King Movies So Far

19 September 2017 2:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It stormed the box office in September 2017, smashing box office records, pleasing critics, and quickly washing away the bad taste of so many poorly wrought Stephen King adaptations like the current of a suburban neighborhood sewer. Move over Ernest Hemmingway! Beat it Dr. Seuss! The Stephen King adaptation is a hot commodity in Hollywood once again.

Sure, those aforementioned authors have had their books adapted less than half as many times as the works of Stephen King. With so many adapted works from the same prolific storyteller, many of them are sure to be bad. And that is the case with Stephen King. If you grew up in the 80s, you might even remember that a Stephen King movie was not anticipated with the kind of must-see attitude of today's audiences. Many laughed off the notion, believing that if it was a Stephen King movie, it must be bad.

But as It reminded audiences, »

Harry Dean Stanton: An Enigmatic Icon Whose Final Starring Role Might Be His Best

16 September 2017 4:41 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As Ry Cooder’s slide guitar sounds melancholy echoes, the man suddenly appears in the desert, walking purposely toward some vague destination off in the distance. His sunbaked face covered with several days of beard, his pinstripe suit dusty and ill-matched with a red baseball cap, he is plainly driven by some inner demons. Just as plainly, he isn’t going to last much longer.

That’s how Harry Dean Stanton first appears in “Paris, Texas,” the classic 1984 drama directed by Wim Wenders from a screenplay credited to Sam Shepard and L.M. Kit Carson. And while taking stock of the much-respected actor on the occasion of his passing — Stanton died Friday in Los Angeles at the age of 91 — I cannot help viewing that unforgettable image as metaphoric: After a long trudge through a wilderness of secondary roles, he finally broke through in this film to get the attention he so richly deserved.

It Has Set a New Box Office Record Every Day Since Release

16 September 2017 11:15 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

From the very beginning, it appeared as though It was poised to be a big success and one of the biggest horror movies of 2017. The Stephen King adaptation has lived up to that and then some. The movie has simply obliterated expectations this week, as evidenced by the fact that it has broken a record at the box office every single day since its release.

As reported by The Wrap, New Line Cinema's It started breaking records during Thursday night previews last week and has kept the streak going as the horror flick is headed into its second weekend. The record-breaking commenced when It brought in $13.5 million in Thursday night previews, which bested the previous record held by Deadpool for an R-rated movie. That was just the beginning though, as the records continued to get more impressive as the week rolled on.

Six Harry Dean Stanton films you can't afford to miss by Jennie Kermode

Harry Dean Stanton as Carl Rodd in Twin Peaks

He was the son of a cook and a tobacco farmer, a Kentucky boy who took a big risk by dropping out of university to pursue an acting career, but by the time he died on Friday at the age of 91, Harry Dean Stanton had appeared in more than 100 films. They include a host of hits: The Last Temptation Of Christ, Cool Hand Luke, Pretty In Pink, The Green Mile, Inland Empire and more. He had bit parts in the likes of The Godfather 2, In The Heat Of The Night and How The West Was Won, though sadly his scenes in Cheech and Chong's stoner classic Up In Smoke went up in smoke themselves. But some of his work was truly unforgettable. If you see nothing else, you have to check out these.

Harry Dean Stanton’s Best Performances: An IndieWire Tribute to ‘Paris, Texas,’ ‘Pretty in Pink,’ ‘Twin Peaks,’ and More

15 September 2017 5:21 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Harry Dean Stanton stole more scenes than most other actors even appeared in. Over his six-decade career, the late, great actor managed the improbable feat of being as recognizable from his highbrow fare (like “Paris, Texas”) as he was from his high-school movie (“Pretty in Pink”) — and that was just in the mid-‘80s.

Stanton also worked with David Lynch, Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, John Carpenter, and Monte Hellman, among many others; he left his indelible mark on all their movies, as he did on those who watched them. Here are some of our favorites.

‘It’ Will Become One of the Top 10 Horror Films in Box-Office History

12 September 2017 9:21 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After Sunday confirmed growing word of mouth, “It” ended its opening weekend with $123 million. For horror films, which call a $40 million-$50 million opening great, that’s nearly uncharted territory. Even if “It” only doubles its opening, that would make it not only the biggest Stephen King adaptation ever (topping “The Green Mile,” in adjusted numbers), but also one of the top horror films in box-office history.

It will easily outpace this year’s two best, the microbudget Blumhouse films “Get Out” ($175 million) and “Split” ($138 million). And the first weekend already has surpassed “Annabelle: Creation” ($96 million) or a domestic disappointment like the Tom Cruise’s “The Mummy” ($80 million).

Horror can cover a lot of territory, so exact definitions can be a challenge. But it looks like “It” will join a list of the 10 biggest ever in domestic ticket sales (as calculated by adjusting ticket prices).

Frances McDormand Delivers but Sam Rockwell Is the Story in ‘Three Billboards’

4 September 2017 8:51 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In terms of the awards season, all eyes will surely be on Frances McDormand in Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” which premiered at the Venice Film Festival Monday. But while the actress delivers a more nuanced turn than the fire-breathing character you might expect from the film’s trailer, it’s Sam Rockwell who really punches through the ensemble with a dramatic arc and a reminder that the journeyman actor can be one of the best tools in a director’s arsenal.

Rockwell stars as hateful Missouri law officer Jason Dixon, clearly a few bricks shy of a load, a simpleton who is the product of his limited environment. But he’s by no means a caricature. Jason has deep admiration and love for Woody Harrelson’s noble Sheriff Bill Willoughby, under fire from McDormand’s scorned Mildred Hayes, who seeks justice for her raped and murdered daughter. He »
