'King' collects $73.6 million in opening weekend

21 December 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Movie audiences shelled out a king's ransom for one last trip to Middle-earth. New Line's The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King raked in an estimated $73.6 million in its first weekend and put up a five-day haul of about $125.1 million since debuting Wednesday, according to studio estimates Sunday. That put it well ahead of the fantasy trilogy's first two chapters. Part one, The Fellowship of the Ring, grossed $47.2 million over opening weekend and $75 million in its first five days, while the middle chapter, The Two Towers, had a $62 million opening weekend and took in $102 million over its first five days. Sony's Julia Roberts starrer Mona Lisa Smile, the weekend's only other new wide release, opened as the No. 2 movie with an estimated $12 million. Last weekend's top movie, Sony's Something's Gotta Give, slipped to third with an estimated $11.5 million. Warners' Tom Cruise starrer The Last Samurai was fourth with an estimated $7.3 million. Fox's Stuck on You rounded out the weekend top five with an estimated $5.4 million. Final figures will be released Monday. »

Audiences held captive by Hussein; b.o. ho-hum

16 December 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Overall it turned out to be a rather lackluster weekend at the boxoffice in North America as the total gross for the 103 films tracked by The Hollywood Reporter was $89.1 million, down 13% from the comparable session in 2002. Not that this weekend has traditionally been a strong one through the years. With schools still in session, winter weather in play, the holidays fast approaching, and this year's added bonus of the heavy news coverage of the capture of Saddam Hussein, there was definitely competition for the attention of moviegoers. Sony's Something's Gotta Give found itself receiving $16.1 million on its debut in theaters this past weekend as the Jack Nicholson-Diane Keaton starrer took first place. The PG-13-rated comedy, written and directed by Nancy Meyers, is a romantic comedy about an older man who falls in love with the mother of the girl he is dating. »

Keaton Laughs Off Jack Romance

16 December 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Diane Keaton has laughed off reports she's planning to wed Jack Nicholson - insisting she isn't even dating the legendary lothario. The 57-year-old actress - who is co-starring with Nicholson in new comedy Something's Gotta Give - says that marriage isn't even a "remote possibility" for her. Keaton suspects that the her role as Nicholson's lover in the movie, coupled with their good friendship has sparked reports of a real-life romance. But the veteran screen star - who was Woody Allen's inspiration for Oscar winning film Annie Hall - promises that the pair will always be just good friends. She says, "Jack and I would never get together like that. We are both too set in our ways, and he's too huge, a myth, a legend. There's no way." »

Distrib milestone: 'Something' up at boxoffice for Sony

15 December 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Sony's Something's Gotta Give gave its all at the boxoffice this weekend as the romantic comedy, starring Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton, romanced the top spot while exceeding expectations with a solid estimate of $17 million. The PG-13-rated Something, written and helmed by Nancy Meyers, marks a record nine No. 1 openings for Sony this year -- more than any distributor in boxoffice history. Warner Bros. Pictures held the previous record with eight No. 1 openings in one year, a feat the distributor has accomplished three times -- in 1994, 1999 and 2001. Last weekend's boxoffice champ, Warners' The Last Samurai, slipped into the second spot with an estimated $14.1 million, down a lukewarm 42% from its debut. The Tom Cruise starrer, directed by Edward Zwick, has generated around $46.8 million in 10 days and, according to executives at the studio, is on track to earn better than $120 million. The latest film from Bobby and Peter Farrelly, 20th Century Fox's Stuck on You, was attached to the third spot with a debut of an estimated $10 million. »

'Something's' out front at the boxoffice with $17 mil

14 December 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Sony Pictures' Jack Nicholson-Diane Keaton romantic comedy pairing Something's Gotta Give took in an estimated $17 million to lead the weekend boxoffice pack, according to studio figures compiled Sunday. Last weekend's winner, Warner Bros.' Tom Cruise starrer The Last Samurai was next with an estimated $14.1 million. A pair of new releases followed. 20th Century Fox's latest Farrelly brothers release Stuck on You wedged itself into third place with an estimated $10 million, while Warners' Love Don't Cost a Thing, an urban remake of the 1987 movie Can't Buy Me Love, collected an estimated $6.5 million in the fourth spot. Buena Vista's The Haunted Mansion fell two notches to No. 5 with an estimated $6.3 million. Dimension's Bad Santa and New Line's Elf were each right behind in sixth with an estimated $6.2 million. Universal's Jessica Alba starrer Honey was eighth with an estimated $5.1 million in its second weekend, while the studio's Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat took ninth place with an estimated $4.2 million. Warners' horror entry Gothika rounded out the weekend top 10 with an estimated $2.7 million. Final figures will be released Monday. »

Boxoffice preview: There's 'Something' about Jack

12 December 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

There is enormous anticipation building for New Line Cinema's final installment, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, which opens Wednesday. And that has cast a cloud over some of the boxoffice estimates for this weekend, which industry insiders are finding a difficult preholiday frame to call. But those willing to risk venturing the odds are placing their bets in favor of Sony Pictures' Something's Gotta Give, starring Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton. Something, a dramedy concerned with growing older while trying to stay young, has the full attention of the over-25 crowd. But with women and families heading to the mall for holiday shopping this weekend, there is a question of how available that audience will be to take in the movie, which co-stars Keanu Reeves, Frances McDormand and Amanda Peet. That could blunt the opening of the PG-13 film, which could bow with an initial purse in the $12 million-$16 million range. Nicholson's most recent film, Anger Management, debuted to a whopping $42 million, but that movie had an assist from co-star Adam Sandler. Something, from Nancy Meyers, who most recently directed the hit What Women Want, is more likely to perform like Nicholson's earlier As Good as It Gets. That adult-oriented comedy opened to $16.1 million. »

'Mystic River' Tops National Board of Review Awards

3 December 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Drawing first blood in the year-end award frenzy, the National Board of Review gave its best picture honors to Clint Eastwood's Mystic River, and awarded River star Sean Penn with the Best Actor award for his performances in both that film and 21 Grams. While those awards were not entirely unexpected (River has been one of the most acclaimed movies of the year), the group had a few surprises up its sleeve, citing Diane Keaton as Best Actress for the upcoming comedy Something's Gotta Give and an out-of-the-blue Alec Baldwin for Best Supporting Actor for Sundance hit The Cooler. Indie fave Patricia Clarkson took Best Supporting Actress for her work in Pieces of April and The Station Agent, while Edward Zwick nabbed Best Director for The Last Samurai, which finished second behind Mystic River in the group's top ten list. French-Canadian flick The Barbarian Invasions won Best Foreign Film. Breakthrough performance honors went to Paul Giamatti (American Splendor) and Charlize Theron (Monster) and an ensemble award was given to the cast of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.

The year's top ten films as named by the National Board of Review: Mystic River, The Last Samurai, The Station Agent, 21 Grams, House of Sand and Fog, Lost in Translation, Cold Mountain, In America, Seabiscuit, and Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. --Prepared by IMDb staff »
