Mixed bag takes over as summer season exhausts

7 September 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

With kids heading back to school and vacationers returning to normal work routines, the overseas boxoffice began to settle down as a batch of new entries attracted degrees of attention in a fragmented marketplace. The Terminal led the charge in the United Kingdom, Italy, Korea and Taiwan; The Village was No. 1 in Australia, Brazil, Switzerland, Hong Kong and Argentina; Garfield purred its way to the top in Spain; King Arthur overwhelmed Greece; The Chronicles of Riddick headed the boxoffice chart in Germany; Van Helsing took command in Japan; Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid hit the mark in the Philippines and Singapore; and a local film, 5x2 calculated to No. 1 in France. Top weekend honors went to M. Night Shyamalan's The Village, which took in an estimated $9.5 million from 2,052 screens in 23 countries, raising its international cume to $45 million. Village captured the No. 1 position in all seven of its new openings, according to distributor Buena Vista International, with Australia providing $2.2 million from 200, said to be 40% better that Shyamalan's Unbreakable; Brazil, $750,000 from 250; Switzerland, $655,000 from 80; and Hong Kong, $421,000 from 20. »

Thandie Opts Out of 'M:I 3'

18 June 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Thandie Newton turned down the chance to reprise her role in the upcoming Mission: Impossible 3 sequel - so she can write a new movie with her husband. The British actress lit up the big screen alongside Tom Cruise in 2000's Mission: Impossible II - but Thandie has forgone the chance to return to the action franchise. Instead she is occupying herself writing a screenplay with husband Oliver Parker, after becoming frustrated with Hollywood. Newton - who is currently starring alongside Vin Diesel in The Chronicles Of Riddick - says, "It's the occasional film that just reignites my love of acting. I can go through months where I just want to quit and it's funny the films that do reignite that love." »

Final boxoffice: 'Azkaban' conjures up $34.9 mil

14 June 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The charms and wizardry of Warner Bros. Pictures' Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was strong enough to enable the film to repel three robust wide releases and maintain its position in the top spot with $34.9 million, Monday's final figures showed. But new product, combined with the charms of DreamWorks' Shrek 2, was enough to erode the sophomore session of Azkaban by a steep 63% from its debut. Nevertheless, the Alfonso Cuaron-directed Azkaban reached the $100 million mark in a fast four days and has grossed a sturdy $158 million in just 10 days. Among the three new wide releases, Universal's The Chronicles of Riddick, starring Vin Diesel and helmed by David Twohy, fought its way into the second spot with $24.3 million. The sci-fi actioner arrived at the low end of expectations, but it was a solid opening nonetheless, besting Shrek 2 and easily topping the four-day weekend gross of Pitch Black ($13.5 million), the film that spawned the character of Riddick. »

'Potter' waves off rivals

14 June 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The charms and wizardry of Warner Bros. Pictures' Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was strong enough to enable the film to repel three robust wide releases and maintain its position in the top spot with an estimated $35.1 million. But new product, combined with the charms of DreamWorks' Shrek 2, was enough to erode the sophomore session of Azkaban by a steep 63% from its debut. Nevertheless, the Alfonso Cuaron-directed Azkaban reached the $100 million mark in a fast four days and has grossed a sturdy $158.1 million in just 10 days.

Boxoffice preview: They're off to seize the wizard

11 June 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Three films targeting very different audiences are attempting to dethrone the boy wizard from his boxoffice perch this weekend. But it's unlikely that the eerily perfect wives of Stepford, the anti-hero Richard Riddick or a lasagna-loving animated cat will cast a spell strong enough to drive Harry Potter and his friends at Hogwarts from the top of the chart. Last weekend illustrated the pure power of Potter. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the third installment of J.K. Rowling's book series, generated a record $93.6 million in its debut weekend, the highest opening-weekend gross of the series. But with Universal Pictures' The Chronicles of Riddick targeting young males, Paramount Pictures' The Stepford Wives making a bid for older women and 20th Century Fox's Garfield: The Movie looking to capitalize on the family audience, the boxoffice will have to expand to accommodate all the new titles. »

Universal driving 3rd 'Fast' film

9 March 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Universal Pictures is putting the gears in motion for a third installment of The Fast and the Furious and is hoping to put Vin Diesel back in the driver's seat of the Neal Moritz-produced franchise. Diesel and Paul Walker starred in the first Fast, which grossed $144.5 million. Although Universal originally sought Diesel to reprise his role as Dominic Toretto in the sequel, negotiations broke down, and the studio opted to build the second film in the series around Walker, who teamed up with Tyrese for last year's 2 Fast 2 Furious, which grossed $127 million domestically. Universal, which will release Diesel starrer The Chronicles of Riddick on June 11, has begun to rev up the Fast team by hiring Chris Morgan to pen a script that would accommodate Diesel's return to the street-racing franchise. The studio said no deal is in place with the actor, adding that it is "looking to bring back certain elements from the first two films." »
