‘Ghostbusters’ Beats ‘Tarzan’ for Top Spot on DVD, Blu-ray Disc Sales Chart

17 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Three new high-profile theatrical hits catapulted into the top three spots on the national home video sales charts the week ended Oct. 16, led by Sony Pictures’ much-maligned “Ghostbusters” remake.

The comedy, which grossed $128.2 million in U.S. theaters against an estimated budget of $144 million, topped both the Npd VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined Blu-ray Disc and DVD sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart.

Warner’s “The Legend of Tarzan” debuted at No. 2 on both charts, selling about 61% as many units as “Ghostbusters.” “Tarzan” came to home video with a domestic theatrical gross of $126.6 million.

20th Century Fox’s “Ice Age: Collision Course,” the latest in the studio’s successful “Ice Age” franchise of animated, family friendly films about a group of mammals in the Paleolithic ice age, bowed at No. 3 on the overall disc sales chart and No. 4 on the Blu-ray Disc chart. “Collision Course” – installment No. »

Box Office Top 10 Takeaways: ‘The Magnificent Seven’ Delivers, ‘Storks’ Doesn’t

25 September 2016 1:55 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The grosses from two new $20-million-plus openers – “The Magnificent Seven” (Sony) and “Storks” (Warner Bros.) – delivering $35 million and just under $22 million respectively, might appear to be strong numbers. It’s the first time we’ve seen this level of gross since the second August weekend. And if the movies hold well and get strong international results, both could nudge into positive territory.

But a closer look is less upbeat, due to the total gross count as well as the disappointing showing of “Storks.” While remake “The Magnificent Seven” hit its marks, they are also less impressive on close examination.

The Top Ten

1. The Magnificent Seven (Sony) New – Cinemascore: A-; Metacritic: 55; Est. budget: $90 million

$35,000,000 in 3,674 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $9,526; Cumulative: $35,000,000

2. Storks (Warner Bros.) New – Cinemascore: A-; Metacritic: 54 ; Est. budget: $70 million

$21,805,000 in 3,922 theaters; PTA: $5,560; Cumulative: $21,805,000

3. Sully (Warner Bros.) Week 3- Last weekend #1

$13,830,000 (-36%) in 3,955 theaters (+430); PTA: $3,497; Cumulative: $92,393,000

Weekend Box Office Preview: Western ‘The Magnificent Seven’ Duels Animated ‘Storks’

22 September 2016 10:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Western remake “The Magnificent Seven” (Sony) faces off against animated “Storks” (Warner Bros.) for #1 this weekend. But ranking is less important than how much the two movies pull in audiences. This fight pits the latest iteration of the venerable Hollywood western against a new example of the dominant genre ruling the 2016 box office.

Last weekend’s three duds and a big drop in Top Ten box office can be explained by retread projects that lacked appeal. However after a quick start to the season where six out of seven initial wide releases disappointed (Clint Eastwood’s “Sully” will end up grossing more than the other six combined), this week sees only two new wide releases.

That’s actually a sign of strength, since both look appealing enough to boost numbers. It’s an interesting combo, with both films having potential but neither guaranteed to open as well as “Sully” ($35 million), although both cost more. »

China’s Shinework Pictures Unveils Fund, Slate of Co-Production Movies (Exclusive)

20 September 2016 2:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Well-established Chinese TV producer, Shinework Media has launched a feature film division with a high-powered slate of co-production movies.

Shinework Pictures, which is already producing the $65 million Jackie Chan film “Kung Fu Yoga,” says it expects to deliver 3-5 movies per year.

The slate was unveiled Tuesday in Xi’an, the historic city where the Silk Road International Film Festival is currently being held.

The lineup announcement was complemented by the launch of a film finance fund. The scale of the fund was not immediately confirmed though as this stage it is understood to have received investments from private equity sources, predominantly high net worth individuals.

“The film fund and production company’s slate will be focused on commercial China co-production films that will appeal to the China box office and international markets with budgets ranging from $10 million to $60 million,” the company said in a statement. The model sees Shinework »

Toronto Film Review: ‘Mascots’

10 September 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In Christopher Guest’s “Mascots,” there’s a funny scene in which the judges for the 8th World Mascot Association Championship in Anaheim, Calif. — a competition known as “the Fluffies” — call one of the 20 competing finalists onto the carpet for an alleged sin of political incorrectness. The judges include the ever-beaming Michael Hitchcock as a persnickety control freak in a sweater vest, Ed Begley Jr. as an old curmudgeon with a “micro-penis,” Don Lake as a geek version of J.K. Simmons, and Jane Lynch, with her never-less-than-hilarious cutthroat hauteur, as the author of a book called “A Moose-ing Grace: A Mascot’s Journey to God.”

The finalist who’s in hot water is Cindy Babineaux (Parker Posey), a broken-down belle in a frowzy dye job whose mascot character is Alvin the Armadillo, from a college in the heart of Mississippi. The trouble is that the team was once named the Leaping Squaws. »

Ice Age: Collision Course Headed to 4K Uhd, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital This October

30 August 2016 7:51 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

The fifth and likely not final Ice Age film is headed to home video in October with the release of Ice Age: Collision Course on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. All versions are set for release on October 11th, 2016.

Ice Age: Collision Course fell victim to franchise fatigue in North America with less than half the gross box office business as any of the previous four franchise films with $61.7 films. International business, buoyed by over $42 million from China alone, pushed the worldwide ticket sales north of $367 million.

The Ice Age: Collision Course 4K Uhd Blu-ray will featured Dolby Atmos audio and the Scrat: Spaced Out Mini-Movie extra in 4K. The remaining bonus features are found on the Blu-ray version of the film:

Why ‘Kubo,’ ‘Jungle Book’ and Other Great Kids’ Movies Prove Hollywood Should Treat Adults Like Children

29 August 2016 7:12 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

While the last few months have been pretty dire for moviegoers seeking the large-scale satisfactions that blockbusters can provide, my seven-year-old has had a nearly perfect summer at the movies. From “The Jungle Book” to “Kubo and the Two Strings,” it’s been a great summer to be a kid — or a chaperone.

The summer hasn’t been a total wasteland. As Vulture’s Mark Harris pointed out, movies aimed at older audiences, particularly older women, have been reliable arthouse hits, and audiences who see past the glare of studio marketing campaigns have had plenty to choose from: “Swiss Army Man,” “The Fits,” Don’t Think Twice,” “Love & Friendship” and “Hunt for the Wilderpeople,” to name a few. But there’s a particular itch that only a sweeping spectacle can scratch, and movies like “Suicide Squad,” “X-Men: Apocalypse” and “Ghostbusters” went after that itch with steel wool and a blowtorch. »

China Box Office: ‘Jason Bourne’ and ‘Ice Age’ Share Weekend

28 August 2016 8:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Two Hollywood titles released midweek in China dominated the country’s weekend box office. Neither will threaten the record books.

Actioner, “Jason Bourne” narrowly beat animation “Ice Age: Collision Course” with Friday to Sunday scores of $23.7 million and $22.0 million respectively. Between them they accounted for over 75% of the weekend box office total, and ended the winning – but relatively weak — performances of Chinese-language titles which had topped the chart for the previous six weeks.

Their release on Tuesday (Aug. 23) meant that “Bourne” finished the weekend with a cumulative $48.9 million after six days, while “Ice Age” had accumulated $42.4 million after six days, according to data from Ent Group. They ran each other closely throughout the period with “Ice Age” actually taking the top spot on Sunday.

While the six day scores were decent, for their respective studios it was a case of ‘what if.’ Chinese regulators, who decide release dates for imported Hollywood titles, »

‘Sausage Party’: Why Seth Rogen’s R-Rated Animated Comedy Was Long Overdue

23 August 2016 6:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sausage Party” may be a film about a hotdog that wants to have sex with a bun, but it still represents a watershed moment for Hollywood. The raunchy comedy that’s grossed $65 million after two weeks in theaters is the first R-rated CG animated movie. Co-written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, “Sausage Party” has sex, violence and curse words in a format that has always been reserved for family-friendly fare.

The movie features the voices of comedic stars like Rogen, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, James Franco and Paul Rudd playing anthropomorphized food items who discover their only reason for existing is to be eaten by humans. Directors Conrad Vernon (“Monsters vs. Aliens”) and Greg Tiernan (TV’s “Thomas & Friends”) have backgrounds in traditional animation aimed at children, but there’s nothing traditional about this deranged dark comedy. »

Paul Hanneman to leave Fox

19 August 2016 3:13 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The executive will depart his role as president of Fox worldwide theatrical marketing and distribution in October.

It is understood Hanneman chose not to renew his contract at the studio, which is undergoing fundamental change in its leadership structure.

Stacey Snider is due to succeed Jim Gianopulos as chairman and CEO of Twentieth Century Fox Film when the latter steps down on June 30, 2017.

Hanneman assumed sole oversight of worldwide theatrical marketing and distribution one year ago when Tomas Jegeus, with whom he had served as co-president since 2013, was named head of Fox International Productions.

The pair has overseen international marketing and distribution since 2005.

Hanneman’s tenure at Fox has seen him play a leadership role in some of the biggest hits of the last decade including the all-time (unadjusted) top-grossing film Avatar, as well as the Ice Age and X-Men franchises and Deadpool.

The studio confirmed the development on Friday after it was first reported by THR »

God, I love this wackadoodle show.

This week on CBS’ Zoo, Mitch deduced that their “missing link” in finding the cure would be an extremely hard get, while Jackson came face to face with his mutated mother. When all was said and done, the team was poised for a Jurassic lark, until an unexpected adversary surfaced.

Mammoth Movie 'Woolly' Will Show How Close We Are to a Real 'Jurassic Park'

10 August 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Even though the latest Ice Age sequel disappointed at the box office, hopefully there's room for another movie involving woolly mammoths. According to Deadline, Fox (which also puts out those prehistoric animal animated films) has picked up the rights to a movie based on the upcoming book Woolly: The True Story of the De-Extinction of One of History’s Most Iconic Creatures, and yes that title says this is a factual tale. Last year, Harvard geneticist Dr. George Church made the first step towards cloning one of the massive ancestors of the elephant in an experiment that seems inspired by the plot of Jurassic Park. Imagine if Michael Crichton's novel only covered the very beginning Dr. Hammond's research, and maybe that is what we can...

Box Office Special: When Films are Bigger Abroad...

7 August 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

What did you see this weekend?

Let's ignore Suicide Squad's big box office weekend (read Lynn's review here) as that story is overworked already given the months of hoopla on the internet and the expected fact of a very big weekend (that's what happens with much-hyped superhero films). Instead for the weekend box office column, let's talk about a situation that occurs each year in terms of different preferences in blockbusters around the globe. Those differences sometimes go a long way in explaining why some franchises never die (Hello, Ice Age) even long past their natural expiration dates. Though Finding Dory has easily topped the domestic charts in the Us to become 2016's champ, it couldn't reach the global power of Captain America: Civil War (#1), Zootopia (#2) or The Jungle Book (#3) worldwide. Taste and success do vary across borders.
