Jaeden Lieberher Recalls Intense Deleted Scene From It

21 September 2017 9:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If the summer blockbuster season fell far short of expectations – King Arthur, Valerian, Baywatch and The Mummy all struggled to leave much of an impression – then Warner Bros. and New Line jolted Hollywood’s box office back to life through the release of It.

Lauded with praise from the get-go, the Andy Muschietti-directed adaptation has since achieved box office glory, and recently knocked The Exorcist off its perch to become the highest-grossing horror pic in film history with a domestic haul of $228 million. Not bad for an R-rated genre movie with little-to-no notable stars.

Instead, Muschietti and his team placed their Stephen King adaptation on the Losers Club, a pool of freaks and geeks filled out by some of the hottest rising stars working in Hollywood today. One of those up-and-coming actors is Jaeden Lieberher, who took point as the haunted Stuttering Bill. It was a fairly nuanced performance from the young star, »

Let Nick Offerman Take You to Camelot in ‘A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court’ — Exclusive

19 September 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

You might remember that around this time last year, “Parks & Recreation” star Nick Offerman brought to life Mark Twain’s “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” in a unique audiobook narration performance through Amazon’s Audible. Now, once more, you can listen to his lulling voice narrating another Twain classic in Audible’s new audiobook: “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court”.

The 1889 novel follows Hank Morgan, a mechanic living in 19th-century New England, who (after hitting his head) travels back in time 1300 years to Camelot during the years of King Arthur. Being a mechanic living in a progress-driven atmosphere, Hank feels compelled to teach the citizens of Camelot the modern way of life. As he sets out on his endeavor, he encounters several obstacles like an arrogant, devious wizard. While time-travel narratives were not as usual as they are today, the novel says something crucial to readers about social »

Hellboy Star Daniel Dae Kim Responds to Whitewash Casting Controversy

14 September 2017 2:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Lionsgate's Hellboy reboot avoided a potential disaster, when Ed Skrein graciously bowed out from playing Major Ben Daimio, upon learning the character is an Asian-American in the comics, leading to the casting of Daniel Dae Kim this week. Daniel Dae Kim has now released a statement, thanking Ed Skrein for doing the right thing, after his casting sparked a whitewashing outcry from the fans. Here's what Daniel Dae Kim had to say in thanking the producers of Hellboy and Ed Skrein for how he handled this situation.

"I applaud the producers and, in particular, Ed Skrein for championing the notion that Asian characters should be played by Asian or Asian American actors. He could not have addressed the issue more elegantly and I remain indebted to him for his strength of character."

The actor gave his statement to The Hollywood Reporter, where he also confirmed that, not only is his deal finalized, »

Stephen Colbert Q&A: Despite Politics, ‘Late Show’ Host Just Wants to Make Audiences Laugh

13 September 2017 6:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Many of the nation’s late-night hosts like to keep their audience laughing, even when they’re not on camera. Stephen Colbert has a serious side, too.

He has reason, sometimes, to take a pause. In August, he and his team rushed to put together a monologue in half an hour, the result of President Trump’s now-infamous late-day press conference in which he said many different parties were to blame for the August clash between white supremacists and protesters in Charlottesville, Va. The effort, Colbert said during an interview the next day, left him tired.

But not at a loss for words. In an extensive interview that took place the day after that effort and that has been edited for clarity, the CBS “Late Show” host looks forward to new projects, including an animated series about President Trump that he is readying for Showtime, and a potential revamp of his program’s second half hour.

Daniel Dae Kim Replaces Ed Skrein in Hellboy Reboot

11 September 2017 3:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Exactly two weeks after Ed Skrein made a surprise exit from Lionsgate's Hellboy reboot, following "whitewashing" concerns about his character Major Ben Daimio, a replacement has been found. Korean-American actor Daniel Dae Kim has entered talks to play Ben Daimio, who, in the comics is a Japanese-American character. After Ed Skrein stepped away from the role, Lionsgate released a statement stating that the studio will re-cast the character, "with an actor more consistent with the character in the source material," and it seems they've found their man in Daniel Dae Kim.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news today, describing the Major Ben Daimio character as, "a rugged military member" who works for the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (Brpd), who also has the ability to turn into a jaguar when he's injured or becomes angry. Ed Skrein signed on to play Ben Daimio in August, using social media to »

Return of the B-movie: why big-budget flops could be good for cinema

11 September 2017 1:59 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The likes of King Arthur and Cars 3 crashed at the box office – but could they pave the way for a ‘second feature’ renaissance?

Related: Box office massacre: how Hollywood flopped this summer

For Hollywood, summer has been a disaster movie. Us ticket sales are the lowest in decades, the landscape is strewn with fatigued franchises and broken tentpoles, and most studios don’t have two blockbusters to rub together. Which is unfortunate because blockbusters are now the only game in town. Studios have steadily been painting themselves into a corner by releasing fewer, more expensive movies at the expense of mid-range drama, which has pretty much defected to television.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Remains Atop Disc Sales Charts

8 September 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Walt Disney Studios continued to ride high on the national home video sales charts the week ended Sept. 2, nailing down the two top spots on both the Npd VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

The Marvel mega-hit “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” remained No. 1 on both charts for the second consecutive week.

And Disney’s “Signature Collection” release of “The Lion King” debuted at No. 2 on both charts. The 1994 animated classic has a long track record of success on home video; upon its initial release more than two decades ago, it sold more than 26 million VHS videocassettes to become the biggest home video seller ever.

Paramount’s “Baywatch,” based on the 1990s TV show that made a star out of Pamela Anderson, debuted at No. 3 on both charts after earning $58 million in U.S. theaters.

Wonder Woman Just Cracked Another Major Hollywood Milestone

4 September 2017 4:00 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The summer of Wonder Woman isn't over yet, as the DC comic's Amazonian origin story passed another major, historical threshold. After 14 weeks, Wonder Woman remains in the top 15 at theaters, and is second in overall domestic box office this year (just ahead of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2). According to Forbes, Wonder Woman also just blew past Iron Man 3 to become the fifth-biggest superhero movie of all-time in North America (after adjusting for inflation).

Let's put this into perspective, only The Dark Knight Rises ($448m), Avengers: Age of Ultron ($459m), The Dark Knight ($534m), and The Avengers ($623m) have performed better at the domestic box office. This is a truly amazing accomplishment for Patty Jenkins (only her second feature film), and Gal Gadot (her first starring role), and DC who's struggled to construct and sustain their extended universe of superhero films (Dceu).

Box Office: ‘Hitman’s Bodyguard’ Leads Slowest Labor Day Weekend in About Two Decades

3 September 2017 8:22 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A disastrous domestic summer box office is ending on a low note.

Without any fresh competition in wide release, “Hitman's Bodyguard” appears the be the holiday weekend’s movie of choice. The Lionsgate release with Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson at the center is tracking to earn $12.9 million from 3,370 locations over the four-day weekend. Its seemingly imminent win would make “Hitman’s Bodyguard” the only flick this summer to retain the top spot on the domestic box office charts for three consecutive weekends. “Dunkirk,” “Wonder Woman,” and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” each stayed first for two frames.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Tops Disc Charts

1 September 2017 2:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Walt Disney Studios dominated the top tier of the national home video sales charts the week ended Aug. 26, with the summer theatrical mega-hit “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” riding its nearly $390 million domestic box office take to an easy No. 1 debut.

The film, the summer’s No. 2 (and the year’s No. 3) movie based on U.S. ticket sale revenue, sold nearly three times as many discs as the rest of the top 10 sellers combined, according to Npd VideoScan data.

It also sent the original “Guardians of the Galaxy” back into the top 10 on the overall disc sales chart (the film finished the week at No. 6).

Twentieth Century Fox’s “Alien: Covenant,” finished a distant second on both the overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart. The film, with a domestic gross of $74.3 million, had bowed at No. 1 on »

Hellboy Reboot Gets Hemlock Grove Star Penelope Mitchell

30 August 2017 5:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just days after actor Ed Skrein exited Lionsgate's Hellboy reboot, due to concerns over "whitewashing," the project has added yet another member to its cast. Penelope Mitchell (Hemlock Grove) has just signed on to play a witch named Ganeida. It remains unclear if the studio is actively seeking actors to replace Ed Skrein, who backed out of the Major Ben Daimio role upon learning that the original character in the comics is a Japanese-American man.

Deadline reports that Ganeida is an elder witch who decides that the reign of terror caused by Nimue the Blood Queen (Milla Jovovich) has gone on long enough and tries to stop her. It's unclear if Ganeida ultimately joins forces with Hellboy (David Harbour) and his team of paranormal investigators to take down this medieval sorceress, but it seems likely. The Ganeida character had a similar arc in the 2011 comic Hellboy: The Fury, so »

The Furniture: Reframing the Legend of King Arthur

28 August 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

"The Furniture," by Daniel Walber, is our weekly series on Production Design. You can click on the images to see them in magnified detail.

King Arthur, the character, is listed by IMDb as appearing in 149 films and TV shows. That’s more than Dracula. I’m not going to go through all of them, obviously. But circumstance has given me a good excuse to compare two examples: Knights of the Round Table (1953) and King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017). The latter just came out on Blu-ray. The former will serve as a bit of a tribute to Mel Ferrer, whose centennial was this past Friday.

The most obvious difference is between Ferrer’s version of Arthur, noble and even a bit meek, and the ever-hulking Charlie Hunnam. But this isn’t a physique column. Instead, I want to take a brief look at how Hollywood’s presentation of the loosely defined Arthurian Age has changed. »

Yes, Summer Box Office Was Bad — and Here’s 6 Reasons Why the Worst is Yet to Come

25 August 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The summer movie season is almost over, and will total about $3.875 billion in North America. That’s a 13 percent drop from last summer; adjusted to the number of tickets sold, it’s the lowest summer in at least 20 years. And when you consider population growth, it’s even worse.

The losers here are the theaters. But for the studios, it validated their decision to make movies that consider the international audience first — which means for domestic theaters, there’s even more bad news to come.

Here’s what we learned on summer vacation:

Yes, there will be more sequels.

In North America, we’re getting sick of sequels — not that it matters. A summer sequel still sees easy entry into the $100 million club, thanks to overseas audiences. “Despicable Me 3” is the #1 film in foreign and worldwide totals, but stands as only #4 in the U.S./Canada. “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales »

‘King Arthur’ Rules DVD, Blu-ray Disc Sales Charts

17 August 2017 9:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Two new releases took the two top spots on the national home video sales charts for the week that ended Aug. 12, led by Warner’s “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword,” the latest retelling of the saga of the mythical British king.

“Arthur” debuted at No. 1 on both the Npd VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart. The film made less than $40 million in U.S. theaters and was panned by critics, with the reviewer for the Chicago Tribune calling it a “grim and stupid thing.” Nearly 40 films have been made about about King Arthur, the earliest one in 1904.

Debuting at No. 2 on the overall disc sales chart only was “Snatched,” which opened theatrically the same weekend (May 12-14) as “Arthur” and finished second, with $19.5 million, to $15.4 million for third-ranked “Arthur.” The comedy, from 20th Century Fox, stars »

Hellboy reboot casts Sasha Lane as Alice Monaghan

16 August 2017 3:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As pre-production on the Hellboy reboot ramps up ahead of filming later this year, the film has made yet another cast addition. The latest actress to join, per The Hollywood Reporter, is American Honey’s Sasha Lane, taking the role of Alice Monaghan in the film.

In the Hellboy comics, Alice Monaghan was a baby when she was kidnapped by fairies and then rescued by Hellboy. Due to her time with the fairies, Alice retained some magical abilities and met Hellboy again as she grew up. Though she was also in her early 50s, she showed little sign of ageing thanks to the fairies’ magic.

According to Splash Report, the movie will also feature  Abe Sapien and Major Ben Daimio of the B.P.R.D., Gruagach, Baba Yaga and King Arthur and Merlin. Expect more casting news soon.
