Bill Murray Relived Groundhog Day Again at the Broadway Musical — and Cried

9 August 2017 5:39 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Bill Murray returned to Groundhog Day… again.

On Tuesday, the 66-year-old comedian went back in time — taking in a performance of Groundhog Day, the Broadway musical based on his hit 1993 movie about a cranky TV weatherman who gets stuck in a time warp while covering the Groundhog Day ceremonies in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania and is forced to relive the same day over and over again until he gets it right.

It was Murray’s first time seeing the musical, which was nominated for seven 2017 Tony awards and took home London’s Olivier Award for Best Musical. And according to reports from The New York Times, »

Box Office Plummets as ‘The Dark Tower’ Leads Weak Openers

6 August 2017 11:32 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Long-planned Stephen King adaptation “The Dark Tower” (Sony) managed to score the top spot at the weekend box office. Only the second King adaptation to reach theaters since 2007’s “Carrie” remake (which opened even lower), this one contributes a pittance to a mighty adjusted gross of $2.2 billion for all of King’s movies since the original “Carrie” in 1976.

Coming in under the projected $20 million for the weekend with an estimated $19.5 million, “The Dark Tower” couldn’t save one of the biggest falloffs ever for a summer weekend. The Top Ten came in at just $106 million, compared to $218 million exactly a year ago. That weekend boasted D.C. Comics entry “Suicide Squad.” But a $112 million shortfall and a drop of some 50 percent is grim. Last year’s second-ranked sequel “Jason Bourne” came in ahead of anything in the Top Ten this weekend.

As Sony kept the budget down on “Tower,” foreign returns could mitigate any losses. »

1 August 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

To coincide with the release of creepy doll flick Annabelle: Creation, which hits cinemas soon, we at Thn take a look back at some of cinema’s scariest dolls. Rag dolls, clown dolls, mannequins…there is something creepy about a permanent smiling face and fixed stare. Let us have a look at how something so innocent can also be the stuff of nightmares in our top ten creepiest dolls on celluloid.

10. Chucky – Child’S Play

The cult horror villain voiced by Brad Dourif is probably the most well known evil doll ever. Although Chucky has now become some kind of loveable anti-hero, the first couple of films from the Child’S Play series feature a more evil and creepy version. With a death count of 30, Chucky is a doll you don’t want to mess with.

Anna Faris and Chris Pratt Have a Secret Emoji Signal to Escape Hollywood

27 July 2017 11:48 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Sometimes you just need to get away.

When Anna Faris and Chris Pratt need a break from their hectic Hollywood lifestyle, they send each other their own version of the bat signal.

“I send the emoji of an eagle landing to say, ‘Let’s get away to the islands,” Faris, 40 tells People in this week’s issue. “We both grew up in Washington State, and we have a place up there.”

It’s no wonder the couple has had to come up with a secret code. This summer alone, Faris has been juggling filming a remake of Goldie Hawn’s classic Overboard, »

Bawdy Nun Comedy ‘The Little Hours’ Soars at Specialty Box Office

2 July 2017 10:07 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

All of a sudden the scary decline at the indie box office has reversed. Through the first five months of 2017, only four films opening limited in the standard four New York/Los Angeles theaters opened with a per theater average of $20,000. In the last four weeks, four films have opened strong as “Beatriz at Dinner” (Roadside Attractions), “The Big Sick” (Lionsgate) and “The Beguiled” (Focus) opened well and reached crossover crowds.

This week’s addition, Sundance comedy hit “The Little Hours” (Gunpowder & Sky) is the latest surprise. Loosely inspired by the bawdy 14th-century Boccaccio classic “The Decameron” (The Hollywood version starred Joan Fontaine while Pasolini shocked in 1971), this tale is set in the Medieval Italian countryside with bawdy contemporary dialogue as a randy peasant hides out at a convent after his master catches him with his wife. It did strong business at four theaters on two coasts.

‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ is a Transformula for Failure, and Other Sad Box Office Stories

25 June 2017 1:24 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Rival studios gave “Transformers: The Last Knight” a wide berth, not that it was necessary. While that assured its entry at #1, it set the wrong kind of record as the lowest-opening entry in Paramount’s “Transformers” franchise. A Wednesday opening camouflages the size of its weekend drop, and while its worldwide haul stands at just under $200 million, once again domestic theaters are the major losers.

There’s scattered good news, including another strong hold for “Wonder Woman,” but this was another down weekend led by another lackluster sequel.

Next weekend should change the tone with “Despicable Me 3” (Universal) primed for a possible $100 million opening, with Edgar Wright’s “Baby Driver” (Sony) and the Will Ferrell/Amy Poehler comedy “The House” adding to the potential. The need for a gamechanger keeps getting bigger.

Box Office: Beatriz at Dinner with Giant F***ing Robots

25 June 2017 12:32 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

By Nathaniel R

The opening weekend for Transformers: The Last Knight was such a huge drop from the series past bows that they might want to use the last film's title The Age of Extinction rather than dumping more billions into keeping this franchise alive. Unless of course its overseas take continues to be ginormous.

‘Cars 3’ is Stuck in Neutral, But ‘Wonder Woman’ and Tupac Shakur Come To the Rescue

18 June 2017 1:24 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Rough Night” described the box office this weekend for too many movies. “Cars 3” (Disney), Pixar’s latest animated entry, took the top spot — but fell below opening estimates. “The Mummy” continued its domestic unraveling, falling to $13 million and number 4 in its second weekend. And then there’s Sony’s “Rough Night” — the latest attempt to replicate the “Bridesmaids” R-rated female comedy magic, and latest to fall short.

Winners were “Wonder Woman” (Warner Bros.) at number two, and  two original, non-franchise films with Lionsgate’s Tupac Shakur biopic “All Eyez On Me” flying much higher than predicted, while the British sharks-in-the-water thriller “47 Meters Down” (Entertainment Studios) scored a surprisingly strong $11.5 million.

Next week, expect another sequelitis outbreak with “Transformers: The Last Knight” (Paramount, fifth in the series) the sole wide opener next week on Wednesday. “Despicable Me 3” (Universal), actually the fourth in its franchise, opens the following week; a few countries have opened already, »

‘Wonder Woman’ Sends Indie Box Office Straight to Hades

4 June 2017 10:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Wonder Woman” captured the weekend zeitgeist with reviews as good as any new adult-appeal specialized opener — and gobbled up potential audience. But that’s not the sole reason the specialty box office went to hell this weekend.

“Churchill” (Cohen), with the pedigree of an arthouse crossover winner, went nationally in top theaters but failed to capture more than desultory business. A trio of niche releases showed some mid-level interest in New York and Los Angeles — “The Exception”(A24), “Letters from Baghdad” (Vitagraph), and “Band Aid”(IFC) — but none looks likely to cross over beyond the big-city arthouse market.

The scariest weekend news: the total lack of response to Ken Loach’s Cannes 2016 Palme d’Or-winner “I, Daniel Blake.” While it’s been a long wait after a year-end qualifying run, it’s shocking that the well-reviewed BAFTA-winner met with near total disinterest.

And the British crooner, 23, revealed new details about his independent music venture while riding shotgun with longtime mate James Corden during Thursday’s Carpool Karaoke.

Eva Longoria Talks Newlywed Bliss: ‘People Get Really Annoyed with Us Because We Love Each Other So Much’

17 May 2017 5:30 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Almost a year after getting married, Eva Longoria is still in the honeymoon phase.

The actress opened up to People about newlywed life with Mexican media mogul José “Pepe” Antonio Bastón, and her role as stepmom, while promoting her new film, Lowriders.

“My husband is the best part of life,” Longoria, 42, gushes. “Like, people get really annoyed with us because we love each other so much!”

Longoria and Bastón, 49, tied the knot in a gorgeous ceremony in Valle de Bravo, Mexico in 2016. Dating since 2013, Bastón popped the question in Dubai in December 2015 with a ruby and diamond engagement ring.

Jennifer Lopez Wears a 4.6 Carat $33,000 Diamond Ring and Anklet to the NBC Upfronts

While she may have missed appearing on the original Vh1 showcase series, there should be no doubt in anyone’s mind that Jennifer Lopez is a bonafide diva. After all, as Beyoncé once said, “diva is a female version of a hustler,” and the pop star is nothing if not a prolific multi-disciplinary talent. A point she hammered home on Monday morning, arriving on the NBC Upfronts red carpet in typical showstopping fashion.

While she already completely dominates the musical world and is responsible for some of the most iconic rom-coms of the early aughts, Lopez now has her eyes set on conquering TV, »

‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ is a Failure, and Summer Box Office Could Follow

14 May 2017 2:47 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” surpassed Warner Bros.’ modest expectations by revealing itself as a full-on belly flop, grossing $14.7 million. While nothing else approaches its level of disaster, it’s a beacon for the weaknesses that have begun to plague summer 2017.

Next week, expect Fox’s “Alien: Covenant” to lead three new summer entries. Ridley Scott’s return to his 1979 classic opened to $42 million in a majority of the world (but not China, among other territories); it will need to soar next weekend at home in order to restore some confidence to the industry.

This Was the Worst Box Office of 2017 — But ‘How to Be a Latin Lover’ and ‘Baahubali 2’ Were Amazing

30 April 2017 1:45 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This weekend was the nadir of what has become a bipolar year at the box office, but it comes with an extraordinary, if unsettling sidelight: Mass audience fare is no longer guaranteed, even with top stars and well-known IP.

How to Be a Latin Lover” (Lionsgate) and “Baahubali 2: The Conclusion” (from previously unheralded Great India) ranked second and third, both over $10 million. Those are grosses better than not only Stx’s “The Circle” (which had the benefit of Emma Watson and Tom Hanks, and is based on Dave Eggers’ novel), but are also better than any new release on the same weekend last year. Studios concede the weekend before the new Marvel release in early April, but that’s also an opportunity that two smart distributors recognized.

That left “The Fate of the Furious” (Universal) as the default #1 again. $19 million for a third weekend, and $192 million total, is strong »
