Box Office: ‘Despicable Me 3’ to Dominate Independence Day Weekend

16 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The summer box office this year hasn’t been the friendliest to franchise films, but “Despicable Me 3” looks to buck the trend.

In a record 4,529 locations — the widest domestic release ever — Illumination and Universal’s threequel could land in the $90 million-$100 million range this weekend. The studio is estimating slightly lower, around $85 million.

Either way, that’s a win for the franchise, which has grossed over $955 million domestically and $2.7 billion worldwide with the first three installations (including the “Minions” spinoff). “Despicable Me 2” opened this weekend in 2013, and earned $83.5 million. The franchise has historically performed well overseas — this installment has already taken in $20 million internationally from six select territories over the past two weekends.

10 best Cartman moments from South Park

20 June 2017 8:05 AM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Eric Cartman is the backbone of South Park’s humor. He is annoying, egotistical, spoilt, maniacal and most of all he revels at the misery of others. Despite being primarily a caricature, a lot of his qualities will be familiar to most people; everybody knows an Eric Cartman. Cartman occasionally redeems himself, which is one of the reasons why his friends Stan, Kyle and Kenny continue to stick around, but mostly the kids enjoy watching Cartman’s elaborate plans fall horribly apart. Cartman usually gets what he deserves for his bad behavior and the show would not be the same without him....read more »

Illumination and Universal PicturesDespicable Me 3 opens in theaters nationwide on June 30, 2017.

Illumination, who brought moviegoers Despicable Me and the biggest animated hits of 2013 and 2015, Despicable Me 2 and Minions, continues the story of Gru, Lucy, their adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions in Despicable Me 3. After he is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down the latest bad guy to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis. But when a mysterious stranger shows up to inform Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother—a brother who desperately wishes to follow in his twin’s despicable footsteps—one former super-villain will rediscover just how good it feels to be bad.

Steve Carell (The Big Short, The 40-Year-Old Virgin) not only reprises his role as Gru, but also takes on a second part—that of Dru, »

‘F is for Family’: The Darkest New Netflix Drama Worth Watching Is an Animated Comedy

19 June 2017 12:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The more prestige dramas there are, the harder it is to watch all of them. They’re long. They’re heavy. And for most content on Netflix, they’re far too loosely edited, which only makes them feel longer and heavier. So as the streaming giant prepares to release a 30-minute live-action comedy-drama hybrid this week (the much-anticipated “Glow”), it’s important to note Netflix has been killing it when making shorter dramatic content, with the most recent example being “F is for Family.”

And by killing it, I do mean death is but a heartbeat away in Bill Burr’s R-rated, animated take on “Married With Children.” It’s not so much that the ’70s-set family show deals with existential fears (like “BoJack Horseman”) or knocks off characters left and right (like most dramas these days), but that Burr’s fictionalized memoir of growing up deals with the era — and those living through it — as if though there’s no going back.

Read More: ‘The Ranch’ Part 3 Sneaks a Pro-Choice Argument Into a Superficially Conservative Season

Literally, there isn’t (until Doc Brown gets around to inventing the DeLorean), but “F is for Family” approaches its period story as being stuck in time rather than nostalgic for a time gone by. Take, for instance, the opening credits, which show a young, happy, idealistic Frank Murphy (voiced by Burr) slowly transform into an old, frowning, pessimistic father of three. There’s no next step for Frank. His arc, literally embodied by flying up into the air and plummeting back to earth, is closed. He started with dreams, and he’s ended up here.

The show itself mimics this mentality with a nuanced thematic goal for its lead character. Frank struggles to regain the dreamy perspective he once had, but he’s only hoping to remember specific bits, rather than dramatically change his life. He’s unable to turn back the clock, and he knows it. So how does he survive in the now?

Season 2 focuses on his marriage and how the destruction of his dreams led him to de-prioritize his wife, Sue (Laura Dern). Throughout the 10 new episodes (released May 30, just in time for Emmy consideration), viewers are given telling flashbacks to how Frank and Sue met, and it’s unclear if we’re seeing the beginning and end of their marriage arc — witnessing its end in the present day and its beginning in the past — or if we’re meant to see why Frank might have an ounce of hope (and why the ever-patient Sue stays with him).

Without spoiling the result, the not knowing is what makes “F is for Family” Season 2 such intriguing TV. If the safety nets presumed to be included with 30-minute animated TV shows aren’t completely gone, they’re lowered far enough to be out of sight and out of mind. And the other plots of Season 2 only make this reflective character study all the more unsettling.

Kevin (Justin Long), the teenage son, gets into a spot where he’s technically the victim of statutory rape. While presented, at first, as the dream conquest of any pubescent boy, Kevin’s moral struggle and inability to talk about what happened is fleshed out well. Bill (Haley Reinhart), the youngest of three kids, learns a harsh life lesson too soon and resorts to operating outside the innocent moral parameters of boys his age. Last season, he saw things he can’t un-see (and neither can we), but this season finds Bill making seemingly minor choices that could permanently change the man he’ll become.

And then there’s Sue. In Season 1, there was a nagging lack of outside perspective when it came to how Frank treated his family. The series felt far too supportive, understanding, or, at the very least, permissive of an emotionally abusive father. But Season 2 is Sue’s season, and she’s had enough of her husband’s attitude. Fixing their relationship involves respecting Sue as a full partner, not just someone who handles the kids while Frank’s at work.

Read More: ‘The Mist’ Review: Stephen King TV Adaptation Crosses the Wrong Lines for the Wrong Reasons

Her determination to make Frank see her as an equal gives the new episodes a stronger sense of self-awareness as well as a darker edge. Frank has had a tough go of things, but that’s no longer a good enough reason to behave the way he does. “F is for Family” isn’t a comedy making light of horrific childhood moments; it’s a drama depicting how pain can be transferred from husband to wife, father to son, family member to family member.

While “Bloodline” and “House of Cards” may earn the accolades at awards shows and attention from critics, Netflix has been steadily churning out deeper, more challenging dramas in briefer installments. “F is for Family” illustrates why it’s important to see series for what they are, rather than through the genre lens thrust upon them. But it’s also a show that benefits from unveiling its drama in shorter, 30-minute chunks, rather than stretching out episodes to fit the hour-long standard perpetuated by the industry.

As more and more scripted series are produced, hopefully more are allowed to be told in whatever format and whatever length is best. Animated series have long usurped expectations, from “The Simpsons” to “South Park,” but it’s time all series follow suit and upend these outdated genre assumptions.

Emmy Predictions 2017: Outstanding Animated Program

14 June 2017 11:07 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last Year’s Winner: “Archer

Still Eligible: Yes.

Hot Streak: “South Park” has been nominated four years in a row, 12 of the last 13 years. “The Simpsons” has been nominated two years in a row, but previously had a 24-year hot streak before it missed out on a nod in 2014.

Fun Fact: “The Simpsons” and “South Park” have been duking it out in this category for as long as the latter has been in existence. Fox’s iconic comedy has 10 awards and 25 nominations, while Comedy Central’s most heralded series of all time has five wins and 15 nods.

With one of last year’s nominees no longer eligible — “Phineas and Ferb,” which aired its final episode in 2015 — there’s at least one open slot in the Outstanding Animated Program category. That’s good news for the newcomers and those denied entry for past season. We’re hoping that bodes well for “BoJack Horseman, »

Film Review: ‘Despicable Me 3’

14 June 2017 3:43 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On the surface, the “Despicable Me” cartoons appear to be sendups of the James Bond franchise, but beneath that slick, spoofy exterior, they’re really marshmallow-centered affirmations of good old-fashioned family values. In the original, reformed super-villain Gru (Steve Carell) agrees to reprioritize his life around his three newly adopted daughters. Then, in the sequel, Gru met soul mate Lucy Wilde (Kristen Wiig) and got hitched. And now, in what might have been titled “Predictable Me 3,” Gru discovers his long-lost twin brother, Dru, giving the superficially surly character even more reasons for group hugs.

The fact that Gru has lost his job with the Anti-Villain League and that Dru desperately wants to get into the villainy racket is mostly just incidental in a series that’s starting to feel less like 007 and more like “The Brady Bunch” with every outing. And lest you assume that “Despicable Me 3” somehow marks »
