"Expendables," "Giver" Underwhelm At Box-Office

17 August 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

After a late Summer surge saw "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" open way above expectation, things came crashing down to Earth this week with the release of three films which opened a bit soft at the U.S. box-office upon release.

Of the trio, the one good performer was the Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr.-led R-rated comedy "Let's Be Cops" which came in third with $17.7 million over the weekend. Thanks to a Wednesday opening, it's already at $26.1 million after five days - surpassing its $17 million production budget.

Next was the "The Expendables 3" in fourth with $16.2 million for the weekend. That's considerably down on the $34.8 million and $28.6 million opening weekend of the first two films. The weakest reviews of the franchise, the switch to a PG-13 rating and the online leak of a DVD screener all probably didn't help much .

In fifth came "The Giver, »

Weekend Box Office: 'Ninja Turtles' #1, 'Expendables 3' Tanks and 'Boyhood' Sneaks into Top Ten

17 August 2014 8:19 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

No big surprise this weekend, at least not at the top, where Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles took the #1 spot for a second weekend in a row with $28.4 million as its domestic cume climbs to $117.6 million while Guardians of the Galaxy was closely behind in second with $24.7 million as it is now over $222.3 million domestically. We find the first of the weekend's new releases in third and no, it doesn't star Sylvester Stallone and a rag tag group of aging action stars. It's Let's Be Cops, a comedy Fox didn't even screen for critics here in Seattle, and while it brought in $17.7 million, falling short of the $20+ million tracking, I'd say it's doing decently after a big start on Wednesday, bringing in $26.1 million total over the last five days. The "B" CinemaScore suggests it will drop as pretty much all films drop, maybe a little faster, but with a $17 million budget »

“Boyhood” is making money at the box office and increasing its Oscar chances

12 August 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

With each passing week (and really each passing day, considering the numbers), Richard Linklater’s incredibly well received film Boyhood is becoming a bigger and bigger indie box office success. Ever since it debuted to an almost religious response at the Sundance Film Festival back in January, we’ve known that the movie would be a critical favorite. The question was always if the flick would be seen by anyone outside of the niche independent audience that goes to art houses and pays attention to reviews. Well, I’m here to say that Boyhood is being seen by way more folks than that, which is only helping it become a more and more viable Oscar player. It’s made $10.5 million and there’s plenty more to come. The movie was never going to be an easy sell. A nearly three hour coming of age story that rewards patience and noticing subtle changes? »

Guardians of the Box Office. What Did You See This Weekend?

3 August 2014 8:03 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Amir here, with the weekend’s box office report. As expected, Guardians of the Galaxy topped the week’s chart, though it wasn’t quite expected that it would do this well. In true Marvel fashion, the previous record for the month of August has been blown up with a big bang, what with Guardians taking in nearly $25m more than Bourne Ultimatum. As I’m sure you know, I haven’t yet seen the film. Nathaniel has but is not enthused. 

Weekend Box Office

01 Guardians Of Galaxy $94 *New* Review

02 Lucy $18.2 (cum. $79.5)  

03 Get On Up $14 *New*

04 Hercules $10.7 (cum. $52.3)

05 Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes $8.7 (cum. $189.3) Reviewish & Podcast

06 Planes: Fire And Rescue $6.4 (cum. $47.5)

Weekend Report (cont.): 'Transformers' Joins $1 Billion Club

3 August 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

<< Continued from "Weekend Report"In second place, Lucy fell 58 percent to $18.3 million. That's a rough drop, though it's not horrible given the movie's mixed word-of-mouth and tough competition from Guardians. To date, Lucy has earned $79.5 million, and remains on track for over $110 million total.James Brown biopic Get On Up opened to $13.6 million this weekend. That's a bit above Jersey Boys ($13.3 million), but is less than half of the opening of star Chadwick Boseman's last biopic (42, $27.5 million). It's also significantly lower than director Tate Taylor's last movie, The Help ($35.9 million in five days). With good reviews and strong word-of-mouth ("A" CinemaScore), Get on Up should hold up well in the next month: a final total north of $50 million is likely.Hercules plummeted 63 percent to $11 million this weekend. To date, the movie has earned $52.7 million, and is on pace to wrap up somewhere between $70 and $80 million.Rounding out the Top Five, »

Why 'Boyhood' is a different story on the Oscar front for IFC Films

28 July 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" added more screens this weekend and currently finds itself in 107 theaters nationwide. With a per-screen average of around $16,000, the weekend gross was north of $1.7 million, bringing the overall tally to over $4.1 million to date. As it continues to find its audience, the film is obviously a long play for IFC Films, and the prospect of awards recognition lurks, as ever, just over the horizon. Can "Boyhood" be a significant player in the Oscar season for a company that has never really made awards a part of its overall business model? Better yet, if the answer is yes, could it become a significant threat in a season that may well end up a lackluster one when all is said and done? There are a lot of possibilities here, and plenty of questions, for what is easily one of the most unique films in the 2014 marketplace. I hopped »

Forecast: 'Apes' Sequel Swings In to Theaters This Weekend

10 July 2014 5:02 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Friday Am Update: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes earned an estimated $4.1 million from Thursday night shows beginning at 10 p.m. That's a significant improvement on Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which earned $1.25 million at midnight.Unfortunately, it doesn't compare favorably to recent releases. That number is less than half of the Thursday night openings for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Godzilla and Transformers: Age of Extinction. Godzilla and Spider-Man benefited from 7 p.m. showtimes, though Transformers was essentially in the same position as Apes.Another unflattering comparison: on the same weekend last year, Pacific Rim scored $3.6 million from late Thursday shows. For the weekend, the movie wound up with just $37.3 million.Apes should still be safely over $50 million for the weekend. But the odds of it breaking out to over $75 million now look slim.Forecast: Coming off the slowest Fourth of July in over a decade, the »

Brandon Routh, George Lazenby and the one-hit movie wonders

8 July 2014 5:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

"In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes," it's claimed Andy Warhol once said. Some stars shine much brighter than others, though, and in the case of Hollywood we often see actors hit big early before disappearing without trace.

Brandon Routh, who delivered a sensitive and assured turn as the Man of Steel in 2006's Superman Returns, is one such example. Routh never quite got the breaks he deserved after landing that life-changing role, so it's nice to see him back in the superhero game with an upcoming role as Atom in Arrow.

Digital Spy takes a look back at a handful of stars who couldn't escape their one big role.

Brandon Routh

Plucked from relative obscurity to lead Bryan Singer's lavish Superman sequel, Routh impressively channelled Christopher Reeve on his big screen debut but found leading man roles difficult to come by in the aftermath.

Are Shailene Woodley and Kristen Stewart really 2015 Oscar players?

5 June 2014 7:19 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Fault in Our Stars" arrives in theaters tomorrow having already transformed itself from summer sleeper to expected blockbuster. The reviews have been very positive with a number of critics even admitting they were bawling at the end. That being said, when it really comes down to it, most reviewers will admit Josh Boone's direction leaves a lot to be desired. Still, the movie works. Why?  The reasons are two fold. First, Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley have genuine on screen chemistry. And, second, Woodley pretty much carries the movie. It's as simple as that. (In fact, it really may just be all Woodley here. She also had a fantastic bond with Theo James in "Divergent.") As for the movie itself, "Stars" is told from the direct point of view of Hazel, the teenage cancer patient played by Woodley. The film lives and breathes on her ability to have »

Oscar Quandaries: Original Or Adapted?

30 May 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The Screenplay categories were not always as fluid as they are now and once adhered to very strict rules about a script's prior existence. Now, they let you get away with a little fudging which started in force a dozen years ago when Gangs of New York and My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which had spent all of their pre-release hype talking about being adapted from [insert fabulous thing here] were suddenly "originals" through complicated explanations once awards season was in sway and it became clear that the original category was infinitely less competitive. Since then much has changed and now previously established characters is a thing everyone does to fight for adapted (when it suits them) and the lines are really blurry.

Adapted Or Original. Either Could Happen...

So here are four plus movies that seem like they're balancing on a wire between original and adapted. Which way will they fall?

Hey Nia Vardalos: Here Are 11 Do's and Don'ts for Your Sequel to 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding'

30 May 2014 6:38 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Nia Vardalos' romantic comedy "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" hit theaters in 2002 it became a word-of-mouth, sleeper hit (to the tune of over $350 worldwide). Much of the film's success came from the fact that the Portokalos family was so relatable, with the demanding parents, and their quirky, ethnic traditions. Recently, Vardalos announced on Twitter that a sequel was in the works.

‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ Is Back

29 May 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

If you’re one of the many who enjoyed 2002′s hugely successful My Big Fat Greek Wedding, then you’re in luck – there’s a sequel in the works.

Both written by and starring Nia Vardalos, the first film follows Greco-American Toula (Vardalos) and her relationship with Us “Wasp” Ian (John Corbett).

It looks like much of the original team in on board for the sequel. Vardalos will once again write and star in the movie, while Corbett is also reprising his role as the husband. Playtone, HBO and Gold Circle are all involved again too, as are a whole bevy of producers (Rita WilsonTom Hanks, Gary Goetzmanare, Paul BrooksScott NiemeyerNorm Waitt and Steve Shareshian). However whether original director Joel Zwick returns remains to be seen.

All we know of the new script at the moment is it features a family secret and, of course, another Greek wedding. »

Have you ever cried upon hearing about a new movie coming out? I don't think I have. I was pretty excited about "Speed Racer" for a second, but the movie did not match the thrill of the trailer. No, it did not. But this woman is pretty psyched about the sequel to "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," so thank you, Nia Vardalos. And no thank you to Darren Aronofsky, who really offended this lady. »

You didn't even know you missed the Portokalos family, but you did. Trust me.
