Boycott hits 'Scary' in the boxoffice

26 June 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

MADRID -- Scary Movie 4 suffered a relatively weak opening weekend due to a boycott of the movie by Spain's four biggest exhibition chains in a protest over Buena Vista International's rental terms. According to BVI, the film earned €1,460,000 on 400 copies, a quarter of what the film would have been expected to earn, according to one industry insiders. Scary Movie 3, which opened in Spain in April 2004, earned €9 million overall, but BVI said it wasn't able to provide comparative boxoffice numbers for the earlier Scary films. "We're so busy, I don't have time to look for the opening weekend figures," a spokesperson for BVI in Spain said. »

'Scary' franchise thrives with $40.2 mil weekend

18 April 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

According to the calendar, this weekend was reserved for Easter observances, but for millions of moviegoers, the frame played more like Halloween as Dimension Film's Scary Movie 4 staked its claim as top dog. In fact, with Good Friday a school holiday across much of the country, a number of films that appealed to younger demographics enjoyed a Saturday-like upsurge at the boxoffice on Friday. The fledgling Weinstein Co. easily scored its biggest opening ever as the fourth installment in the Scary parody franchise bowed to $40.2 million. Playing in 3,602 theaters, it notched a strong $11,167 per-theater average. Like the last film in the series, Scary Movie 4 was directed by David Zucker and rated PG-13 rather than the more restrictive R of the first two movies. Although it wasn't quite as robust as Scary Movie 3, which opened to $48 million in October 2003, the new film did mark the biggest Easter opening weekend ever. The previous holder of that record, Sony Pictures' Panic Room, witnessed a $30 million opening back in 2002. »

Dimension bites on genre spoof 'Comic Book'

1 March 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Dimension Films has pre-emptively bought John Unholz's superhero spoof Comic Book: The Movie. The spec, which was bought for mid-six against seven figures, went out wide Thursday morning and was acquired by Dimension on Thursday night after drawing interest from multiple studios. Described as in the vein of the Scary Movie franchise and the recent boxoffice hit Date Movie, Comic Book is a spoof of comic book-based films. There are no producers or director attached yet. Alexander Franklin is shepherding for Dimension. Dimension, which has a history of success lampooning the horror genre with its Scary Movie franchise, also had been developing the satire Superhero! with Scary Movie 3 filmmakers David Zucker, Craig Mazin and Robert Weiss. That project has had no new movement in more than a year. Unholz, a former TV scribe who was a staff writer on WB Network's Hype, sold the TV pilot Operator Standing By to Happy Madison Prods. Comic Book marks his first foray into feature film writing. He is repped by manager Dave Chariton at Miners Mills Entertainment and attorney Mark Wetzstein. »
