Here Are the Highest-Grossing Madonna Films

9 December 2011 5:45 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In honor of this week's limited run for her directorial effort "W.E." this weekend, Indiewire decided to take a trip down Madonna memory lane, counting down her best-performing films at the box office. While the singer-dancer-actress-filmmaker is not generally revered for her film work, she's perhaps gotten a bad rap.  A simple look at her acting resume makes it clear that for every "Body of Evidence" or "The Next Best Thing," there's an "Evita" or "A League of Their Own." Her five best films -- "Evita," "League," "Dick Tracy," "Desperately Seeking Susan" and doc "Truth or Dare" -- are also her highest grossing. Perhaps most impressive of all is "Dare" (directed by her "W.E." co-writer Alek Keshishian), which grossed a stunning $28.3 million when one adjusts for inflation (making it one of the highest-grossing documentaries of all time). »

The Weinstein Company To Distribute Madonna's W.E.

13 June 2011 1:48 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

She may be one of the biggest recording artists of all time, but Madonna has quite the hit-or-miss record when it comes to the movie industry. As an actress she has some pretty interesting titles on her record, including A League of Their Own and Dick Tracy, but she also has disasters like The Next Best Thing and Swept Away listed on her filmography. Lord only knows what that means for her newest writing/directing gig, W.E., but now the Weinstein Company is going to help us find out. According to a press release, the Harvey and Bob-owned production company has attained the U.S. distribution rights for W.E., which stars Abbie Cornish, Oscar Isaac, James D.Arcy and Andrea Riseborough. A two tiered story described as a romantic drama, the film establishes parallel storylines between King Edward VIII's relationship with American divorcee Wallis Simpson and a modern »

Get Some Action With… ‘The Green Hornet’

14 January 2011 11:39 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

So you’re taking a date to see “The Green Hornet?” You’ve taken on quite the task, you know.

Don’t worry too much, though. Taking a date to see “The Green Hornet” isn’t quite as epic an endeavor as taking a date to something like “Tron: Legacy” or “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” “Hornet” isn’t as big a movie, so the challenges you’ll face in molding a successful “Hornet” date are a little more surmountable. But like Britt Reid himself, you’ll have to prove you’re up for the task at hand.

Actually, if you really want to impress your date, you’ll find yourself some funding and turn yourself into a superhero. Imagine it: the movie’s just ended and you’re both enjoying the closing credits (you stay to watch the credits, right? Good). All of a sudden, your wristwatch starts flashing. »
