‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Tops Pre-Christmas Home Video Sales Charts

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

‘Twas the week before Christmas, and Walt Disney Studios snatched the top spot on the national home video sales charts for the week ending Dec. 14 with “Guardians of the Galaxy,” the year’s biggest box office hit.

“Guardians,” which earned $332.5 million in U.S. theaters, easily debuted at No. 1 on both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart – which tracks total disc sales, Blu-ray Disc and DVD combined – and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray chart.

The film opened theatrically Aug. 1 and cost an estimated $170 million to make. Advance word was so good that Marvel Studios announced a sequel even before the film opened; it’s expected out in 2017.

Twentieth Century Fox’s “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” which debuted at No. 1 on both charts the previous week, slipped to No. 2, also on both charts, with total unit sales just 12.2% of the first-week tally for “Guardians.”

Walt Disney’s “Frozen” moved down a notch to No. »

Jim Carrey's How the Grinch Stole Christmas vs. the Classic Cartoon: We Take a Hard Stance on Which is Better!

11 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We're taking a hard stance this year: the 2000 feature film version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas is better than the 1966 TV cartoon special. We are Not grinches for saying that! Let us explain. 1. Jim Carrey was born to play this role. Ever seen The Mask? He's got the market for green, funny characters on lock! 2. We can't even with this cartoon. What is that supposed to be? It's like an obese version of the Mucinex mascot. 3. There's a baby Grinch and a 'lil Grinch in the live action movie, and we want to pinch those cheeks! 4. The cartoon Grinch's Rbf (resting bitch face) makes us legitimately uncomfortable. 5. Ok, this has nothing to do with the »

PopWatch Confessional: The thing you like (that everyone else hates)

12 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Last week, we talked about the widely beloved pop culture things we secretly despise. This week, we're tackling that question's sunnier opposite: What's the entertainment you love, even though everyone else gives it a bad rap? Ashley Fetters, EW.com news editor: There are plenty of unpopular things I like but can understand others' hatred for: Auto-Tune, black jelly beans, the "hella good hair" part of "Shake It Off," televised tennis. But I truly don't understand why some people hate the live-action 2000 version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Not only is it the perfect outlet for the over-the-top Jim Carrey »

‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Takes Over Home Video Sales Charts

10 December 2014 5:25 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the holiday shopping season draws to a close, a handful of hot summer theatricals are trickling into stores during December in an attempt by the studios to capitalize on last-minute gift and impulse buyers.

For 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, the strategy paid off. “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” debuted at No. 1 on the national home video sales charts the week ending Dec. 7 and sold nearly three times as many copies as its closest competitor.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” which earned more than $208 million in U.S. theaters alone, easily topped both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart – which tracks total disc sales, Blu-ray and DVD combined – and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart. Counting an exclusive-to-Walmart two-pack (with predecessor “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”), the film generated 53% of its total unit sales from Blu-ray.

Ratings: Football Dominates First Week of December; NBC Tops Among Networks

10 December 2014 5:56 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With many of primetime’s top series either in repeat (“Big Bang Theory”) or wrapped for the fall (“Walking Dead,” “Scandal”), football dominated the weekly program rankings even more than usual last week.

Three NFL games and a college football conference championship game led the way in the adults 18-49 demo, beating out firstrun series offerings including “The Simpsons,” “Modern Family,” “The Voice” and “Sons of Anarchy.”

NBC closed the week strong with “Sunday Night Football” (7.1/20 in 18-49, 21.15 million viewers overall), which was the No. 1 primetime program in 18-49 as well as total viewers — the fourth straight week the franchise has topped 20 million viewers.

It was followed by Espn’s “Monday Night Football” game between the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets (4.1/13 in 18-49, 11.75 million viewers overall), NFL Network’s contest between the Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears (3.2/10 in 18-49, 9.11 million viewers overall) and Saturday’s college football nailbiter on »

10 Best Christmas Movies (For Guys)

8 December 2014 4:31 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

It’s that season again – the season where the Halloween candy isn’t even off the shelf before garish Christmas decorations are being unpacked. The season of overpriced junk being peddled as the “perfect holiday gift for friends and family”. The season of fake holiday cheer, fruity flavoured beers, and more phoney goodwill than you can shake a stick at.

Bah, humbug!

Okay, so maybe that’s a bit of a cynical over-reaction, but really, Christmas for many is an annual chore, something that comes with tedious family obligations and an empty pocketbook. However, with Christmas comes some good things as well – rum and eggnog, apple pie, and Christmas movies. Christmas movies are good, right? Right?

Well, maybe not so much. For every How The Grinch Stole Christmas there’s a Jingle All the Way and Santa With Muscles. For guys, the pickings are even more slimmer, because »

Bebop and Rocksteady confirmed for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2; Casey Jones could feature

8 December 2014 2:31 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We reported last week that David Green (Earth to Echo) would be replacing Jonathan Liebsman as director for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, and we can now confirm some of the previous rumours surrounding new character additions.

According to Omelete (via Collider), long-time adversaries Bebop and Rocksteady will appear in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, possibly alongside Casey Jones. A few months back we posted some concept artwork for Bebop and Rocksteady and were asked to remove them, prompting speculation that they would feature in the sequel.

“We can say that Bebop and Rocksteady are in the film, and Casey Jones is a character that we love and we’re trying to fit him in as well,” said producer Andrew Form at Ccxp.

Co-producer Brad Fuller also confirmed the return of April O’Neil, Vernon Fenwick and Shredder. No word yet on Krang.

This will be Bebop and Rocksteady’s first big-screen appearance. »

Universal Studios Kicks Off Grinchmas With Tree Lighting Spectacular

Universal Studios Hollywood is the home to many theme park rides, delicious foods and a bunch of fun activities for families around the world.

Sequels abandoned after the film before them struggled

7 December 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Green Lantern 2 and Terminator: Salvation 2, to a Cat In The Hat sequel and Batman Triumphant: sequels killed by the earlier film...

Earlier this year, it was revealed that a sequel was in the early stages for the new Pierce Brosnan action thriller, The November Man. Remember it? Probably not: The November Man would go on to flop in the Us, grossing just $25m in the Us, and when it finally made it to British cinemas, it was released on just one screen (presumably to fill a contractual obligation somewhere along the line).

There's been no word yet on the fate of The November Man 2, but the outlook does not seem favourable. It wouldn't be the first time though that a sequel had been loudly mooted before even a first film was released, only to be quietly abandoned when something - usually related to box office takings - didn't go to plan. »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 finds its director

4 December 2014 5:07 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite all the claims and promises Jonathan Liebesman made about a sequel for this summer’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, it seems as though he won’t be back for another outing.

Instead, Variety are reporting that David Green (Earth to Echo) will take over the director’s chair for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles earned around $477 million worldwide and Paramount announced a sequel for the movie on its weekend opening, despite not having the cast confirmed to return, a director, or a script in place.

No details on plot for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 have been announced, but Megan Fox, who played April O’Neil in the original, hinted that there were Easter Eggs in the movie to suggest that Bebop and Rockstead would feature. In fact, concept art was leaked online a few months back that suggested both Bebop and Rocksteady would be in the sequel, »

2 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Seeing these family-friendly, feel-good shows is a beloved tradition for many communities, and holiday productions find a welcome home on many an actor’s résumé. Here are some festive titles you’re sure to recognize, along with a few fresh winter picks! “A Christmas CarolCharles Dickens’ 1843 classic may be the mother lode of all Christmas shows, in part because it’s so open to re-imagination.

Nadia Bronson, Former Universal International Marketing President, Dies at 67

14 November 2014 7:53 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Film executive Nadia Bronson, known for her innovative work during her tenure as head of international marketing at Universal, died Friday following a long battle with cancer. She was 67.

Bronson, a native of France, was well-liked among colleagues and competitors. She’s credited with raising the profile of the international marketplace — so much so that she was often dubbed “The Queen of Cannes” — thanks to the creativity she brought to promoting films.

During her 24-year Universal tenure, she oversaw international campaigns on such notable pics as “Out of Africa,” “In the Name of the Father,” “Apollo 13,” “Jurassic Park” “Shakespeare in Love,” “The Mummy,” “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” “Babe,” “Gladiator” and “Schindler’s List.”

Jurassic Park” was a massive hit overseas, topping $600 million in 1993. Two years later, “Waterworld” performed impressively internationally with $175 million.

Bronson, who spoke five languages fluently, combined a straightforward business style with a charm that endeared her to executives, »
