The film, with a domestic theatrical gross of nearly $265 million, follows the 2015 offshoot “Minions” and is a sequel to 2013’s “Despicable Me 2.” It’s one of three 2017 films to earn more than $1 billion at the box office, worldwide.
Two new releases, 20th Century Fox’s “Kingsmen: The Golden Circle” and HBO’s “Game of Thrones: The Complete Seventh Season,” bowed at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, on Npd VideoScan’s combined DVD/Blu-ray Disc sales chart as well as the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.
“Kingsmen” sold 80.6% as many units its first week in stores as “Despicable Me 3” did in its second week of release, Npd research shows, with “Game of Thrones” trailing at 58.2%.

Coming off a Grammy nomination for best song written for visual media with “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” the Taylor Swift-Zayn duet that helped propel “Fifty Shades Darker” into a $374 million global release, Universal Pictures film music and publishing president Mike Knobloch confirmed rumors about a Liam Payne-Rita Ora collaboration: “‘For You (Fifty Shades Freed)’ will make a big noise at the top of January on the single for the Feb. 9 film release.”
Knobloch, who joined Universal in 2010 after 13 years as executive VP of music at 20th Century Fox, has the inside track on what it takes to create a motion picture-propelled pop hit. Transitioning
"Elf is the most beloved holiday movie in my household because it's a film that makes you feel warm, happy and silly, and everyone needs some of that come the holidays. That, plus Will Ferrell's elf antics will never get old!"
The top 5 holiday movies are rounded out by The Polar Express, Love Actually, which actually got a Love Actually 2 sequel of sorts on
The Christmas season is well upon us and there is no shortage of movies to get you in that jolly old mood. From classics such as How The Grinch Stole Christmas or A Christmas Carol to modern films like Jingle All The Way or Home Alone, there is plenty of entertainment to choose from for the holiday season.
However, there is one movie that is always on my list to watch and should be on everybody else’s essential Christmas viewing: Die Hard.
Die Hard, starring Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman, is one of the greatest action films ever. New York cop John McClane travels across the country to spend time with his children and estranged wife, but his wife’s office Christmas party is ruined when Hans Gruber and a group of criminals take them hostage.
Its full of
"He gets meaner. See #TheGrinch in theaters Holiday 2018."
The Grinch tells the story of a green, grumpy figure who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl's generous holiday spirit. This heartwarming tale about the spirit of Christmas is beloved as a Dr. Seuss story, but really became a holiday staple when it was presented in animated form in How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
The Grinch will be the second Dr. Seuss tale adapted for the big screen by Illumination after 2012’s The Lorax. Pete Candeland is making his feature directorial debut on the movie alongside Yarrow Cheney (The Secret Life of Pets) and the film is set for release on November 9th 2018.

Apart from our first glimpse at Cumberbatch’s iteration of the character back in May, things have gone a bit quiet on The Grinch front since then. Now, though, just in time for the holidays, Illumination has rolled out the first poster for the pic, which arrives next year – and it takes the Grinch in an unexpected direction.
Captioned “He gets meaner,” the poster doesn’t show us the older, grouchier Grinch but rather, the sweet and innocent younger version. With his scarf and big eyes, the Grinch looks downright adorable here

There are a lot of opinions out there about what counts as a Christmas movie. I recently shared three films that help me get into the holiday spirit. Everyone is different, but here is the key factor in defining a movie as a Christmas movie for me: Christmas must be an essential part of the story.
The movie can’t just have a Christmas scene in it. Christmas must play an integral part of the story. For instance, there is a scene in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone that features Christmas, but that does not make it a Christmas movie. Christmas plays a very minimal role in the story. However, in How the Grinch Stole Christmas (both versions), the story revolves around Christmas. That whole story happens because of Christmas.
Another example is Toy Story, which ends with Andy celebrating Christmas with his family and

This week’s question: What are your winter holiday season viewing habits (that are not for work)? Do you have traditional go-to shows or movies? Are you looking forward to anything in particular?
Eric Deggans (@deggans), NPR
As I have written in the past, I’m not the kind of critic who loves holiday specials. Too often, they’re too hokey, too commercial, too weird (yes, Bill Murray, I still don’t get “A Very Murray Christmas”) or, in the case of countless Hallmark Channel movies, way too white. But I do have a few holiday media traditions, starting with my Spotify Holiday Tunes playlist, which gets fired up as
