Box Office Weekend: Lucy at the Box Office with Diamonds

1 hour ago | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

While critics may be saying relatively the same thing about these films, things are shaping up very differently at the box office for the two big releases this weekend. Lucy, getting slightly worse reviews than its competition Hercules, nevertheless took the first-place spot with $43.9 million – more than enough to be make money against its $40 million budget. Hercules took second with $29.8 million, but the Dwayne Johnson vehicle has a much bigger debt to pay off, still needing to cover over $70 million of its $100 million production costs (and could be doing better overseas).

The rest of the box office is a mixed bag; third place went to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes with $16.8 million, which became a domestic success this weekend by crossing its $170 million costs. The Purge: Anarchy dropped off from its debut week, but it still made a splash, earning $10.5 million and ensuring the low-budget terror franchise will »

"Taylor won't be happy with that!"

'Halt and Catch Fire' Recap: Tragic-Con

19 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Gordon and Donna were right about one thing: A convention is a party, if you're doing it right. Like the Scottish boat-burning ritual for which it was named – and that little shindig in San Diego you may have heard about this weekend, making this some pretty inspired piggybacking – tonight's excellent episode of Halt and Catch Fire, "Up Helly Aa," was a celebration. For a while, anyway.

Box Office Report: Scarlett Johansson Powers Lucy to #1

27 July 2014 12:11 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The year of ScarJo continued in high fashion this weekend, with the action-thriller Lucy surpassing expectations and reaching the #1 spot at the North American box office. Taking in an estimated $44 million from 3,173 theatres, Lucy became the actor’s biggest opening for a non-Marvel film. That is also a larger opening than Salt ($36 million), which starred kick-ass heroine Angelina Jolie and opened in late July, 2010.

With Johansson receiving a lot of acclaim this year for her roles in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Her and Under the Skin, a lack of options for female moviegoers and a dazzling trailer, Lucy was expected to open at the top – but not to this extent. With competition from Hercules and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, mixed reviews and an R rating, an opening over $40 million is a big surprise.

Lucy is the fourth original film from Universal to open at #1 this year – after Lone Survivor, »

Weekend Report (cont.): 'Most Wanted Man' Cracks the Top 10, 'Apes' Rules Overseas

27 July 2014 10:52 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

<< Continued from "Weekend Report"Playing at 361 theaters, spy thriller A Most Wanted Man cracked the Top 10 with $2.7 million. That's the second-biggest opening ever for distributor Roadside Attractions, and is noticeably higher than last year's Mud ($2.2 million). With strong reviews and built-in curiosity surrounding the final lead role from Philip Seymour Hoffman, this should be a solid performer in the weeks ahead.Richard Linklater's Boyhood expanded to 107 theaters and earned $1.73 million this weekend ($16,121 average). The movie has now earned $4.1 million, which ranks fifth all-time for distributor IFC Films. According to IFC, there will be an aggressive expansion over the next few weeks that will include a national television advertising campaign. It's unclear exactly how high this can go, but a total north of $15 million seems like a likely outcome.Gabriel Iglesias stand-up flick The Fluffy Movie opened to $1.3 million from 432 theaters.

Warcraft Motion Logo and Trailer Description - Sdcc 2014

27 July 2014 | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Director Duncan Jones presented som incredible footage at Comic-Con today for Legendary Pictures' upcoming movie Warcraft. The film is currently deep in post-production, and there's still a ton of work that needs to be done to finish the film, but that didn't stop them from showing off a short teaser to get the fans at Comic-Con pumped up to see the movie.

The footage that was shown included narration from two leaders from different clans, the human side and the orc side. What's interesting about this is that neither one seems like a villain. It shows that the movie will be an origin story of sorts that will examine the events and characters that lead to the conflict between the two races, and we'll see it from both of their perspectives — similar to how they portrayed the warring sides in Dawn of Planet of the Apes.

The human leader is played by Travis Fimmel, »

Will A Remake of the Original Planet of the Apes be Next for the Franchise?

26 July 2014 10:42 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 

Where should Caesar and his apes go next? The critical and box office success of the two recent 'Apes' films starring Andy Serkis harkens back to the classic film Planet of the Apes and the novel it was based on. Will a remake of Planet of the Apes be next for the popular franchise?

 

When Pierre Boulle first wrote the novel Planet of the Apes in 1963, he had no inkling it would spawn a series of films that would stretch on into the 21st century. The 1968 film—starring Charlton Heston, written by Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling, and directed by Franklin J. Schaffner (Patton, the Boys from Brazil)—has become a sci-fi classic. Originally meant to be a stand-alone film, it was so successful, and Serling’s clever ending (which wasn’t in the book) added an extra layer of potential mythos to the story, that 20th Century Fox decided »

Birdseed boobs and babies: Highlights from the Women Who Kick Ass Comic-Con panel

26 July 2014 10:12 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

San Diego - What does it mean to be a lady who kicks ass at Comic-Con? It means sitting through a quiet but thoughtful and meaningful panel before Marvel took the main stage at Hall H on Saturday night. Sarah Paulson of "American Horror Story," Nicole Beharie of "Sleepy Hollow," Maisie Williams and Natalie Dormer of "Game of Thrones," Katey Sagal of "Sons of Anarchy" and Tatiana Maslany of "Orphan Black" took on questions from fans and the moderator during the now-annual Women Who Kick Ass discussion at Sdcc. They talked on topics from makeup and beauty standards to stunt coordination advice to what pisses them off. Below are some of the highlights from the varied panelists. Will the plutonic relationship between Nicole Beharie's "Sleepy Hollow" character Abbie and co-lead Ichabod Crane "stick," try not to take it down the romantic path as shows tend to do? Beharie: "I certainly hope not. »

Comic-Con International in San Diego has already hosted the debut of Batman's cowl, Avengers art, and even a pizza thrower, and that was just the first day. We already assembled a roundup of cool stuff you might have missed on Thursday, and now we turn our attention to Friday's under-the-radar news and debuts from the second day of Comic-Con.   Captain Kirk Meets Cornelius the Ape?

‘Star Trek’ Meets ‘Planet of the Apes’ at Idw and Boom! Studios

26 July 2014 3:41 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Back in the 60s, the world of film and television wasn’t as dominated by big franchises as it is now simply because there obviously weren’t as many. In the realm of science fiction, there were really only a few big names and two of them were Star Trek and The Planet of the Apes. Now that both those franchises are back and making a splash on the big screen, they’re coming together for the first time in the world of comics. While it might seem like a strange mash-up at first glance, with all the dimension hoping in Trek and time travel in both, why couldn’t the crew of the Enterprise end up on the dystopian future Earth rules with an iron paw by apes? Star Trek has already crossed over over with Doctor Who, so let’s finish up the big names of the 60s »

Could We Be Getting Another Planet Of The Apes Remake?

26 July 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There's been a lot of talk recently about the direction in which the Planet Of The Apes franchise will be going, and a lot of that talk has been about just how and when the original 1968 film will fit in. The original blueprint for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes would have seen the series make a huge leap from the ending of 2011's Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes straight to a time and place that seemed like a midway point between what we'd just seen and what was to come. However, Matt Reeves wanted to take a slower, more Caesar-centric approach to the future, and now we've gotten our first clue just what all of this is possibly leading up to: we might be getting another re-imagined version of the 1968 classic. Creative Screenwriting recently spoke with Mark Bomback, the man who's pretty much the mind behind »

Box-office update: 'Lucy' defeats 'Hercules' with $17.1 million Friday

26 July 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Dwayne Johnson’s brawn was no match for Scarlett Johansson’s brain at the box office on Friday, as Johansson’s new action film Lucy took the top spot. With an estimated $17.1 million on Friday, Lucy may bring an unexpected boost to this year’s weak July box office and is now on track to pass its estimated $35 million opening, further cementing Johansson’s star power.

Though he definitely has a lot of power in his own way, Dwayne Johnson didn’t have enough strength as Hercules at the box office; Brett Ratner’s poorly reviewed adaptation of Steve Moore »

Box Office: Scarlett Johansson’s ‘Lucy’ to Slay ‘Hercules’ With $45 Million Opening

26 July 2014 8:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Brain is beating brawn at the box office as Scarlett Johansson’s “Lucy” outperformed Dwayne Johnson’s “Hercules” on Friday.

Lucy” opened to a higher-than-anticipated $17 million and is headed toward a strong $45 million debut weekend. Meanwhile, “Hercules” grossed $11 million on Friday on track for a $30 million launch.

Johansson plays the titular femme fatale in Luc Besson’s actioner from Universal. She’s a drug mule who turns superhuman when she mistakenly ingests a drug that gives her access to increasingly more and more brain power at the expense of her humanity.

The actress is a formidable threat to Johnson, the quintessential action star, as she’s proven capable of seamlessly alternating between indies and action pics, from an alien in “Under the Skin” to Black Widow in the “Avengers” and “Captain America” movies. Johansson has the highest grossing film of the year in the U.S. so far with “Captain America: The Winter Soldier. »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Writer Hints at Direction of Third Film

25 July 2014 2:39 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Director Matt Reeves recently said that even though the "Planet of the Apes" franchise will have to return to the 1968 film, there are plenty of stories to tell before getting there. But according to "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" writer Mark Bomback just revealed that the original film is definitely on everyone's minds. "The challenge that we're up against . and I think we'll be even more aware of it in the next film . is how we circle back to the original franchise's fundamental premise that apes have taken over the earth and humans are their prey," he said. "How do you get back to the 1968 universe that started it all?" Bomback continued: "Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, who wrote 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes,' did something really brilliant where they launch the Icarus [the spaceship in the original 1968 film]. I remember when I read the draft I said, 'What a great idea. »
