Steven Spielberg/War Horse Opens Strongly; Cameron Crowe/Matt Damon/We Bought A Zoo Opens Weakly: Box Office

27 December 2011 12:32 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Jeremy Irvine, Steven Spielberg on the set of War Horse Tom Cruise/Mission: Impossible 4, Robert Downey Jr/A Game Of Shadows Have Estimates Revised Upwards: Box Office Despite the presence of Matt Damon and former Woody Allen muse Scarlett Johansson, Cameron Crowe's We Bought a Zoo brought in a revised $9.5m — nearly $2m more than originally estimated — at no. 6 as per studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. Even so, the film's per-theater average was a mere $3,032 at 3,117 locations ($15.6m for the four-day weekend; average $5,005). As mentioned in a previous post, although figures will almost inevitably go up next weekend thanks to the New Year's holiday, We Bought a Zoo will have quite a bit of trouble matching — let alone recovering — its $50m budget domestically. Perhaps it's time for Cameron Crowe to pair up with Tom Cruise (Jerry Maguire, Vanilla Sky) once again. We Bought a Zoo, Crowe's first »

Robert Pattinson/Kristen Stewart/Taylor Lautner/Breaking Dawn to Break Twilight Movie Top-Ten Record?: Box Office

25 December 2011 9:11 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Breaking Dawn Cameron Crowe/Matt Damon/Scarlett Johansson/We Bought A Zoo Disappoints, David Fincher/Daniel Craig/Rooney Mara/The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Passable: Box Office The no. 7 movie this Christmas weekend at the domestic box office will surely be Steven Spielberg's War Horse, which, as mentioned in part I of this three-part box-office article, is expected to gross close to $7 million on opening day — today. In addition to its four-legged star(s), War Horse features Jeremy Irvine, two-time Oscar nominee Emily Watson, Thor's Tom Hiddleston, Peter Mullan, Niels Arestrup, David Thewlis, Benedict Cumberbatch, Toby Kebbell, David Kross, Celine Buckens, Patrick Kennedy, Robert Emms, and Eddie Marsan. Sunday's other wide release, The Darkest Hour, an apocalyptic sci-fi thriller, isn't expected to make much of a splash at the box office despite showings at 2,324 locations. In fact, there's a good chance it won't »

Matt Damon/We Bought A Zoo Weak, Kristen Stewart/Robert Pattinson/Breaking Dawn Top-Ten Sixth Weekend?: Box Office

24 December 2011 2:45 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Patrick Fugit, Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson, We Bought a Zoo David Fincher/Rooney Mara/Daniel Craig's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo to Surpass Swedish Original's Total Gross Over One Weekend: Box Office Despite the presence of Matt Damon, one of the most likable actors around, and former Woody Allen muse Scarlett Johansson, on Friday, Dec. 23, the kiddie-oriented We Bought a Zoo brought in a mere $3 million, landing at no. 6 on the North American box-office chart according to early, rough estimates found at both The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline.com. Directed by Cameron Crowe, who has been luckier with Tom Cruise (Jerry Maguire, Vanilla Sky), and distributed by 20th Century Fox, We Bought a Zoo is expected to gross less than $8 million at 3,117 locations over the three-day weekend.

Watch A Reporter Disintegrate On Camera In Great New Viral Video For The Darkest Hour

23 December 2011 8:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Ever since we got our first look at Emile Hirsch in the upcoming alien invasion/apocalyptic film The Darkest Hour back in the summer, I’ve been getting excited for its release at the start of next year.

Since then, we’ve seen the film’s first trailer, some incredible concept art, and a whole host of other awesome things to boot. We’ve now got a great viral video promoting the film to share with you, courtesy of ShockTillYouDrop, in which we get to see a Russian reporter witness the invasion, and subsequently get shredded, disintegrating into thin air.

The Darkest Hour is the story of five young people who find themselves stranded in Moscow, fighting to survive in the wake of a devastating alien attack. The 3D thriller highlights the classic beauty of Moscow alongside mind-blowing special effects.”

Along with Hirsch, The Darkest Hour also stars the brilliant Olivia Thirlby, »

Producer Kathleen Kennedy Talks Steven Spielberg’s ‘Robopocalypse’; To Have ‘Minority Report’ & ‘A.I.’ Elements

19 December 2011 1:30 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Quick! How many superstar directors could get away with opening one blockbuster less than a week after another? Right now that list has one name: Steven Spielberg. As the holiday box office awaits War Horse and The Adventures of Tintin, we’ve seen set pics of Daniel Day-Lewis as our 16th president in Lincoln, and now longtime Spielberg producer Kathleen Kennedy talks about the next project on the director’s eternally-crowded slate: Robopocalypse. [The Playlist]

Kennedy answered a number of question regarding projects that have been rumored (Jurassic Park 4 – “we don’t have a writer yet”), speculated about (Indiana Jones 5 – same story: “We’re not writing ‘Indiana Jones’ right now”), and some of them may very well be wishful thinking (a NeverEnding Story reboot, a Who Framed Roger Rabbit? sequel).

The project she divulged the most details about was the next planned shoot for Spielberg once Lincoln is wrapped (the man »

The Xbox 360 Experiment – More than games?

19 December 2011 8:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In partnership with Microsoft we are looking at the Xbox 360 console to see if it is, as promised, more than games. You can read my introductory post here for context.

Last night I had the chance to try out my new system properly for an annual festive tradition as we sat down to watch the 1970 musical version of Scrooge. Albert Finney and Alec Guinness always bring the seasonal cheer with a number of truly memorable songs and a Christmas veneer so thick you can hang your stocking on it.

Resisting the urge to show off the Minority Report Kinect-enabled navigation I instead used my voice to zip to the desired part of the new Dashboard (which, as an aside, looks fantastic and as a new user of both the Xbox 360 and the new Nokia Lumia 800 with its Window Phone Os I’m still marveling at how Microsoft managed to create »

[Review] Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol

16 December 2011 5:29 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There’s very little reason to come out of Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol doubting Brad Bird‘s skill as a live-action filmmaker. To date, of course, he’s known best for his Pixar contributions, which include the directorial oversight of The Incredibles and Ratatouille, but with the fourth installment of this Tom Cruise-headlined franchise, Bird proves just as adept at staging large-scale set pieces in physical locations. The difference, though, is that his two previous films both had the foundation of intelligent screenplays, while the written material for Ghost Protocol, co-penned by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec, is just plain dumb.

“Hang on a second there,” you might say, “this movie isn’t supposed to be a smart actioner.” And I would agree with you (for the most part, because, at 133 minutes, the film outstays its welcome by at least 20, and there are one-too-many let’s-take-an-action-break-and-get-emotional monologues).

Philip K. Dick’s Now Wait For Last Year Is Headed to the Big Screen

14 December 2011 8:00 AM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Back in March, Universal Pictures released The Adjustment Bureau, written and directed by George Nolfi (The Bourne Ultimatum), which is based on a short story (Adjustment Team), and next August, most of us will be heading to the theater to see director Len Wiseman‘s forthcoming remake of Total Recall, starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bill Nighy and John Cho, which is based on a novelette called, “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale“.

What do these projects, along with Minority Report, A Scanner Darkly and a handful of others all have in common? Philip K. Dick.

In addition to the Michel Gondry (Green Hornet) directed big-screen adaptation of Philip K. Dick‘s 1969 book, Ubik that we told you was in the pipeline back in February, now Variety reports that Lila 9th and Electric Shepherd Productions are joining forces to bring Philip K.

Now Wait for Last Year dusts off a Philip K Dick tale … again

9 December 2011 10:27 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Do execs dream of Philip K Dick stories? His novel of a humanity embroiled in inter-species war is the latest to be optioned

What is it about the weird and wonderful world of Philip K Dick that has Hollywood hanging round his stories like moths to a flame? Variety reports this week that the time-travelling tale Now Wait for Last Year is the latest novel by the prolific late science fiction writer to be optioned for a date with the multiplexes. In the next couple of years we'll also see Michel Gondry taking charge of disturbing future vision Ubik, Disney attacking whimsical fantasy King of the Elves and the BBC taking on alternate history The Man in the High Castle. There's probably a lot more to come: the author wrote more than 40 published full-length novels and 120 short stories during a writing career of just over three decades.

The Diminishing Old Guard Of Hollywood

7 December 2011 2:24 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

One director brought the smell of napalm in the morning to our screens. Another took us to a Galaxy far, far away. One brought Dinosaurs back to life and into our cinemas. We all know who they are: Coppola, Lucas and Spielberg. All of them seen above, minus Marty, have cracking beards, but that’s not the point. With the man holding the smaller Golden man, Martin Scorsese, having recently released the critically acclaimed Hugo into the cinematic realm we’re left to wonder; what’s happened to the rest of them? Their once almighty talents now seem to be focused upon diminishing their own legacies, the desire they once had to create and maintain their filmic reputations seem to be diminishing with every new feature they release. With Spielberg about to unleash his disappointing technological imagining of the Euro-centric Tintin on the American market this Christmas.

Let’s start with Coppola, »

‘The Darkest Hour’ Trailer #2 & TV Spot: Fiery Alien Invasion Action

6 December 2011 5:39 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Between spies, Victorian-era detectives, Goth punk computer hackers, adventurous journalists, remarkable horses, and “Matt Damon: Zookeeper”, there are plenty of colorful characters that will be popping up in highly-anticipated films due to arrive in theaters over the Winter 2011 holiday season.

However, none of those movies will boast villains as gorgeous (yet dangerous) as the fiery energy aliens that invade Earth in The Darkest Hour, a film helmed by former art director/supervisor Chris Gorak (Tombstone, Fight Club, Minority Report) and scripted by Jon Spaihts – a fellow who contributed to the screenplay for Ridley Scott’s upcoming Prometheus.

The Darkest Hour revolves around a group of young Americans who are vacationing in Moscow when the sky lights up with what (at first) appears to be streaming balls of fire. It is quickly revealed that ...

Another Day, Another Philip K. Dick Adaptation

6 December 2011 5:50 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Variety is reporting that Lila 9th and Electric Shepherd Productions are planning on adapting the Philip K. Dick story Now Wait for Last Year for the big screen.The synopsis from PhilipKDick.com:Dr. Eric Sweetscent has problems. His planet is enmeshed in an unwinnable war. His wife is lethally addicted to a drug that whips its users helplessly back and forth across time -- and is hell-bent on making Eric suffer along with her. And Sweetscent's newest patient is not only the most important man on the embattled planet Earth but quite possibly the sickest. For Secretary Gino Molinari has turned his mortal illness into an instrument of political policy -- and Eric cannot tell if his job is to make the Male better or to keep him poised just this side of death.Obviously this is not the first of Dick's writings to be adapted for a feature film. »
