Final: ‘Fury’ Wins Box Office War With $23.7M; ‘Book Of Life’ At $17M; ‘Gone Girl’ $100M+; ‘Best Of Me’ $10M – B.O. Final

20 October 2014 1:32 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Final Update, 1:32 Pm: Fury ended the weekend at $23.7M for Sony and Qed, so it underperformed all the tracking (gee what a surprise), social media metrics, and expectations just a little. But it will likely still make money all in after its domestic, international and home entertainment run. I understand that there were significant profit participations on this one. Fox and Reel FX’s The Book Of Life closed the weekend on the high end of our estimate with $17M and will have some playtime again over the next two weekends as no new offerings are in the family zone until Big Hero 6 bows from Disney on November 7. The other newbie, Relativity’s The Best Of Me, was soft with $10M. Gone Girl is now sitting pretty at $106.7M after three weeks in release for Fox and New Regency.

The Foo Fighters' weeklong Late Show With David Letterman residency came to a close Friday night with the band participating in a Letterman staple: The reading of the Top Ten list. The subject: "Top Ten Things Foo Fighters Would Like To Say After Spending a Week at the Late Show." "All in all, not a bad place to be quarantined," guitarist Pat Smear joked, to which Letterman replied, "When you were a kid, did you get teased about 'Pat Smear'?"

Which is the greatest British film in history? No one seems to be in agreement

11 October 2014 5:32 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Best British movies of all time? (Image: a young Michael Caine in 'Get Carter') Ten years ago, Get Carter, starring Michael Caine as a dangerous-looking London gangster (see photo above), was selected as the United Kingdom's very best movie of all time according to 25 British film critics polled by Total Film magazine. To say that Mike Hodges' 1971 thriller was a surprising choice would be an understatement. I mean, not a David Lean epic or an early Alfred Hitchcock thriller? What a difference ten years make. On Total Film's 2014 list, published last May, Get Carter was no. 44 among the magazine's Top 50 best British movies of all time. How could that be? Well, first of all, people would be very naive if they took such lists seriously, whether we're talking Total Film, the British Film Institute, or, to keep things British, Sight & Sound magazine. Second, whereas Total Film's 2004 list was the result of a 25-critic consensus, »

Tim Key Q&A as it happened

12 August 2014 6:31 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Enigmatically droll comedian Tim Key is in Edinburgh with his show Single White Slut, and hes answered your questions from what it was like being trussed in tinfoil for the Alan Partridge movie to considering wrestling with Shaun Murphy on a snooker table onstage in Sheffield

2.31pm BST

And with that, Tim heads off into the Fringe. His show Single White Slut is at the Grand until Monday 25 August thanks to him and to everyone who asked questions.

2.19pm BST

Gingification asks:

If I could only watch one show at the fringe this year with slut in the title, which show should it be?

One with that in the title would be Single White Slut. 9.40 at The Grand. One without would be Monsieur Butterfly, by Alex Horne. I watched it last night and it blew my mind. He's at 8.10, so we don't clash.

Pet Shop Boys have been bringing us their Original Synth™ for almost thirty years, and while their last hit in the U.S. was over 25 years ago, they’ve maintained their hitmaking ability in the U.K.

Today is Neil Tennant‘s 60th birthday, so let’s pay tribute by ranking their greatest hits. This is a good place to start your Essential Pet Shop Boys Collection.

Jimmy Fallon Singing 'Fancy' With Crosby, Stills & Nash and the Origin of Jack Bauer's 'Damn It' Catchphrase Lead Our Late Night Roundup (Video)

8 July 2014 12:38 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Didn't stay up for Monday night's late night talk shows? Moviefone's got you covered. Here's some of what you might have missed:

"The Tonight Show" was back from a one-week hiatus for the Fourth of July holiday, and host Jimmy Fallon pulled out one of his oldest -- and best -- recurring gags in celebration. Dressed up and singing as Canadian rocker Neil Young, Fallon was backed by none other than Young's former bandmates, Crosby, Stills & Nash, who applied their signature tight harmony sound to Iggy Azalea's "Fancy." Fallon/Young does a fine job reinterpreting the tune on his own, but things really take off around the halfway mark when Csn join in. Just try not to crack a smile.

Also on "Tonight," Kiefer Sutherland discussed the enduring success of "24" -- including its newest iteration, "24: Live Another Day" -- as well as the origins of Jack Bauer's favorite catchphrase, »

The Essential Heart: Ranking Their Top 20 Songs

19 June 2014 9:33 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Ann Wilson is one of the greatest vocalists (male or female) in the history of rock music, and she and sister Nancy tore down barriers and shattered expectations with their group Heart.

Since their 1976 debut Dreamboat Annie and it’s classic Top Ten single “Magic Man,” they defied the rules about women in rock, and became an inspiration for a generation of female musicians.

Today is Ann’s 64th birthday, so let’s pay tribute by counting down Heart’s 20 greatest songs (including a couple of Ann’s solo releases).

Note – Compiling this list, I was shocked by how few songs from Heart’s “Bustier Era” (1985 – 1990) I decided to include. There are only three (and only one in the Top Ten). And their first #1 song “These Dreams?” It didn’t even come close.

20. City’S Burning

Year: 1982

Album: Private Audition

Chart Peak: N/A

The early 80′s were rough for the group, »

The Essential Boy George: Ranking His Top Ten Songs

13 June 2014 7:42 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Boy George has been a part of our lives for well over thirty years, and was one of the first great stars of the MTV generation. As quickly as his star rose, though, it fell to earth, thanks to years of substance abuse.

Now clean and sober, he’s never been to scale those early heights again, but he’ll always be our Boy George, a reminder of the fun of early 80′s pop music, and we’ll always have that voice … soulful, vulnerable, and warm.

This weekend is his 53rd birthday, so let’s take a look back and name our favorite George hits, both solo and with Culture Club. These ten songs are a good way to start your Essential Boy George Collection.

Top Ten Tuesday – Top 10 Guilty Pleasure Movies

10 June 2014 6:12 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I have a curious habit, maybe you have it too, if you are a real movie geek, film fan, cinema addict, what have you.

A certain number of movies that I have seen and loved with all my heart were losers at the box office or were mercilessly slammed by critics, usually both. This doesn’t happen all the time, mind you. I know a bad movie when I see one. But several times I have seen a movie on opening day and loved it so much I was sure it would be a big hit and be loved by critics and film goers, nope, not all the time.

Here then is my own personal and highly eccentric top ten list, with some honorable mentions, of movies that lost out, yet I love them still, many of them desperately, hysterically, madly do I love these films, well anyway… let me tell you about it. »

The Essential Kylie Minogue: Ranking Her Top Ten Tracks

28 May 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Kylie Minogue has been a star since her teen years on Australia’s Neighbours, but when she branched out into pop music, who knew that she would become a worldwide best-selling superstar?

Today is her 46th birthday, so let’s celebrate one of our greatest allies and icons by ranking her greatest songs. Do you prefer late 80′s “Wouldn’t Change A Thing” Kylie, or “Timebomb” Kylie? Or something in between?

Here’s a good way to start your Essential Kylie Collection.

10. It’S No Secret

Year: 1988

Album: Kylie

Chart Peak: #37

Kylie’s fab debut yielded three top forty singles on the Billboard Hot 100, and while I don’t think “Locomotion” has aged well, the other two are still fresh and fun. “It’s No Secret” is a sweet ballad about a cheating bastard.

9. Love At First Sight

Year: 2002

Album: Fever

Chart Peak: #23

Delirious “Fever” dream, it pulsates and shimmers with giddy delight. »
