Nia Vardalos, Meg Ryan, Geena Davis Talk Sexism in Hollywood

6 May 2016 5:35 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Working together on “Tootsie,” Dustin Hoffman gave Geena Davis wise career advice that she has followed ever since.

“One of the things he told me was ‘Work on getting your own material. Read books. Read articles, get the rights,’” says Davis. “So from the very beginning that was in my mind. In fact, I tried to get the rights to ‘The Accidental Tourist’ when I read it and somebody bought the rights a long time ago and I was so bummed because I thought somebody is going to get to play that part.”

Davis, of course, ultimately did get to play that role in Lawrence Kasdan’s 1988 drama, ‘The Accidental Tourist,’ winning the Academy Award for best supporting actress.

But snagging an Oscar didn’t preclude Davis from encountering sexism in Hollywood, a topic up for discussion at Friday’s “In Control of Her Own Destiny” panel held during the second annual Bentonville Film Festival, »

Weekend Box Office: Shere Khan Feasts on The Huntsman

24 April 2016 5:02 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

It was another great weekend for Disney’s live-action version of The Jungle Book. The family adventure earned nearly three times as much as its closest competition, the Universal fantasy The Huntsman: Winter’s War. The pricey prequel to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman melted with mediocre numbers in its second place debut.

After ten days of release, The Jungle Book has amassed a mighty $191.4 million domestically from 4,028 screens. The $60.8 million earned this weekend represents a drop of only 41% from its monster opening one week ago. That strong hold is the result of strong word-of-mouth from opening weekend crowds, whose feedback should keep the Jon Faverau-directed smash the king of the multiplex until Captain America and Tony Stark begin their Civil War on May 6th.

With nearly $200 million in the bank in such a short amount of time, the $300 million domestic milestone is pretty much a given. With an »

Amazon Studios woos CinemaCon

14 April 2016 3:42 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

In a genial presentation in Las Vegas on Thursday that reassured the massed ranks of exhibitors that it believes in the theatrical business, Hollywood’s newest major player also broke news about theatrical distribution partners on two films on its slate.

Lionsgate will work with head of marketing and distribution Bob Berney on the Us theatrical release of Cannes opener Café Society (pictured), while IFC Films was revealed as the partner on Sundance acquisition Complete Unknown.

If the legend ‘We Love Theaters’ emblazoned across two giant screens in the Octavius Ballroom and the presence of Berney were not already enough to persuade theatre owners that Amazon Studios intends to mount proper theatrical campaigns 90 days before the films roll out on its digital platform, the executive made it very clear in the session.

“All the films we’re acquiring or making will be released theatrically with an aggressive marketing and distribution campaign to bring customers to your theatres »

My Big Fat Superhero Wedding Sequel

27 March 2016 4:01 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Batman v Superman + a little Wonder Woman dominated the weekend with a critic proof opening record for March. The test will be how well it can hold with terrible reviews and lackluster word of mouth. It's unlikely to have the staying power of something like Deadpool for example, which is still in the top ten 7 weeks after its debut. On the other hand it has free reign for a while with no direct competition coming for one entire month. Captain America Civil War arrives on April 8th. The question is this: Will Marvel's superheroes vs superheroes blockbuster be hurt by people feeling all "bleh" about Batman v Superman? Casual moviegoers rarely know the difference between studios and filmmakers and general history of quality, you know.

Meanwhile something girlier: Sally Field's little film is doing great with older moviegoers and enters the top ten in its 3rd week despite being on less than 500 screens. »

'Batman v Superman' Breaks Pre-Summer Box Office Records with $170M

27 March 2016 1:46 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Early box office projections put Warner Bros. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at $120 million and $140 million for its opening weekend. This report came shortly after 20th Century Fox's R-rated superhero adventure Deadpool broke records with a $132.4 million opening weekend last month. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ended up surpassing expectations, with Box Office Mojo reporting that it took in an estimated $170 million, the largest pre-summer opening weekend in history.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has now become the highest-grossing movie to ever debut in March, breaking The Hunger Games' record of $152.5 million set in 2012. We reported last week that advanced ticket sales for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice are out-pacing Deadpool, which took in a record-breaking $132.4 million over its opening weekend, the highest debut ever for an R-rated movie. The movie has gone on to earn $340.9 million domestically and $390 million internationally for a worldwide haul of $731 million, »

My Big Fat Wedding 2 Review

26 March 2016 7:49 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

In the current Hollywood where any movie is ripe for a sequel, fourteen is just a number, which is why 2002 sleeper hit, and the highest grossing romantic comedy of all time, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, has produced a follow-up, with writer and star Nia Vardolas returning as Toula, once again trying to deal with her ‘crazy’ greek family. This time round, things get a bit ridiculous with the wedding actually being between Toula’s parents, due to a mistake being made with their marriage certificate fifty years prior. On top of that, Toula is dealing with marital issues with her husband Ian (John Corbett), that are aggravated by their teenage daughter Paris (Elena Kampouris) wanting nothing to do with them or her extended family. If that brief synopsis sounds like a bad sitcom, you’re right, and that’s the biggest problem with this movie. The plot is less »

Interviews: Flashback to Nia Vardalos, Lainie Kazan of ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2’

25 March 2016 3:47 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The second biggest release of the 2016 Easter Weekend is “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2.” The sequel to the 2002 mega-hit, the film rolls out the same weekend as a certain “Bats v Supes,” but is a bit quieter – and more Greek – than its weekend neighbors. In anticipation of the new “Wedding,” HollywoodChicago.com reruns a couple interviews from featured stars Nia Vardalos and Lainie Kazan.

Nia Vardalos, Actress & Screenwriter, “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

The Nia Vardalos story began with the first “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” (2002). She was doing a one woman show version of the story, when Rita Wilson – wife of Tom Hanks, and a Greek actress herself – came backstage and told Vardalos that it would make a great film. With that, Vardalos gave Wilson the already completed screenplay, and the rest is film history. Since then, Nia Vardalos has written and starred in several films, »
