Boxoffice preview: 'Shaggy' remake best in show

9 March 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Theater marquees will be touting three new wide releases this weekend, but moviegoers might feel a tinge of deja vu as two are remakes from decades ago. Each of the new films carries a different MPAA rating and genre, appealing to distinct audience segments. In addition, Lionsgate's Crash, which won the Oscar for best picture Sunday at the Academy Awards and has been available on home video since September, will be rereleased for a limited time in about 150 theaters. With last weekend's titles generating lackluster performances, observers note that this frame's new entrees easily should grab the top spots. But as with all prerelease tracking, it's up for some debate as to where each film will place. Tyler Perry's Madea's Family Reunion from Lionsgate should remain among the top-ranked films, along with a pair of fellow holdovers, Warner Bros. Pictures' 16 Blocks and Buena Vista Pictures' Eight Below. The film most observers agree will land in first place is the one with the oldest pedigree -- pun intended. Walt Disney Pictures tapped into its venerable boxoffice vault of past hits and produced a remake of The Shaggy Dog, which originally debuted in 1959 with Fred MacMurray and Annette Funicello in the cast. This time, Tim Allen takes a walk on the furry side with Brian Robbins in the director's chair for the PG-rated comedy that Buena Vista will release in 3,501 theaters. »

Modest 'Madea' reunion still tops

5 March 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

On a weekend when the highest-grossing new release failed to crack the $12 million mark, Lionsgate's Madea's Family Reunion held on to the top spot for the second consecutive frame. Tyler Perry's Madea grossed an estimated $13 million, down a steep 57% from its sterling $30 million debut a week earlier. The PG-13 ensemble comedy was in 2,194 theaters, maintaining the highest per-theater average of the top-ranked films, and has gleaned an estimated $48.1 million in 10 days. Overall, this Oscar weekend proved to be a disappointing one at the boxoffice. With only one of four new wide releases venturing past the $10 million mark, the estimated boxoffice for the top 12 films was $83.8 million, down a sharp 23% from the comparable weekend a year ago. The results for the majority of the films in the marketplace turned out to be even less than the modest prerelease expectations heading into the frame. Warner Bros. Pictures' 16 Blocks chased down the second spot with a debut of an estimated $11.7 million from 2,706 sites. The opening for the Richard Donner-helmed action-thriller, rated PG-13 and starring Bruce Willis and Mos Def, finished with less than the hoped-for midteen area. »

Alcon reups with Warners

3 February 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Alcon Entertainment is continuing its relationship with Warner Bros. Pictures, signing a new financing and distribution agreement with the studio. Alcon will continue to develop and fully finance its own feature films that will be distributed by Warners, but under new deal terms; the company also will jointly finance some films with the studio. The deal calls for a minimum of six pictures during the next three years to be co-financed, beginning with the Richard Donner-directed action thriller 16 Blocks and The Wicker Man, Neil LaBute's remake of the 1973 horror movie. Alcon acquired distribution rights to Blocks, which stars Bruce Willis and Mos Def, and Wicker, which stars Nicolas Cage, from Millennium Films and Emmett/Furla Films, with the participation of Equity Pictures. »
