Arthouse Audit: Viggo Mortensen Propels ‘Captain Fantastic’ to Rare Heights

10 July 2016 10:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Thanks to a well-reviewed movie star, Bleecker Street took “Captain Fantastic” to a now-rare, once-common $20,000-plus limited per theater opening. With all well-oiled cylinders at work, Bleecker  filled the demand for older-audience films after two failed recent attempts by others at corralling the younger market (“Swiss Army Man” and “The Neon Demon”).

Two New York-only docs, “Under the Sun” (Icarus) and Sundance opener “Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You” (Music Box) both attracted interest.

A wider Bollywood release, Salman Khan-starrer “Sultan” (Yash Raj), achieved something few specialized films have managed in recent months: a Top Ten placement despite playing at fewer than 300 theaters.

Meantime, The Orchard’s “Hunt for the Wilderpeople” expanded again to strong numbers close to last weekend’s. This word-of-mouth hit could play all summer and expand wider. There is still an audience out there: it’s just more selective.

Happy 18th Birthday, Jaden Smith: How Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith's Son Has Been Wise Beyond His Years

8 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jaden Smith turns 18 today, but this young man adopted his game-changing ways years ago.  The multifaceted star is unabashedly inquisitive, having championed many different causes and tried out a few careers while he was growing up. Whether he's acting, modeling or documenting his life on social media, Jaden's life has garnered attention not so much because of his movie star parents, but because of his fearlessness to shatter societal norms.  For instance, Jaden's decision to mix skirts and dresses into his wardrobe transcends mere sartorial taste to send a profound message.

[Review] Fathers and Daughters

7 July 2016 8:06 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The works of director Gabriele Muccino aren’t for everyone. I can’t speak on his Italian films, but the American ones are unavoidably cloying and sentimental in a way that must be accepted or ignored to find resonance. Despite being the one showered with praise, The Pursuit of Happyness didn’t quite do enough for me. I appreciated the story and performances, but felt the artifice. For Seven Pounds, however, I didn’t care. The entire film proved one giant manipulative contrivance yet it unexpectedly hit me with depth and power just the same. So when the opportunity to watch his latest Fathers and Daughters arrived, I was optimistic. It looked ripe for that same emotional catharsis and as such possessed the potential to also crash and burn magnificently.

It’s reality lies somewhere in the middle. Brad Desch‘s script is everything that detractors say it is, but »

3 Reasons Why ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ Bombed at the U.S. Box Office

27 June 2016 10:49 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Independence Day: Resurgence” didn’t set off any early fireworks at the U.S. box office over the weekend. The sequel to the 1996 hit (the highest-grossing movie of its year) only opened with $41.6 million. To put things into perspective, the original “Independence Day” kicked off to $50.2 million, back when tickets were less than half of what they are priced at now. But executives at Fox might not be sweating too much, since “Resurgence” (which cost $165 million) did much better internationally with a tally of $102.1 million abroad. In China, it scored an impressive $37.3 million debut.

Still, it’s troubling for Hollywood that the sequel named after a patriotic summer holiday wouldn’t generate more interest among U.S. ticket buyers. Here are three reasons why “Resurgence” suffered at home.

1. The Sequel Needed Will Smith

The original “Independence Day” kicked off Smith’s career as a major box office draw, a status »

Suicide Squad IMAX Poster Kicks Off the Day with a Hearty Breakfast

20 June 2016 10:19 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the weekend, director David Ayer shared a new poster for his highly-anticipated comic book adaptation Suicide Squad, and it proved to be one of the most unique one-sheets we've seen this year. As we get closer and closer to the August 5 premiere date, IMAX has unveiled yet another new poster. But this one doesn't exactly show us the members of Task Force X. Instead it teases how they might be portrayed if these characters got their own breakfast cereal. This latest sneak peek shows all the individual logos for each character as breakfast cereal marshmallows.

If that wasn't enough, we also have a new IMAX banner featuring several of the main characters. Last April, Warner Bros. inked a new deal with IMAX through the year 2020 that will cover 30 movies, including Suicide Squad. It's possible that this cereal poster will be given out to fans as an IMAX exclusive during midnight showings, »

New Suicide Squad Poster Delivers an Atomic Blast of Fun

18 June 2016 1:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Now this is cool! Warner Bros. is actually letting someone in the art & marketing department finally have some fun. And the result is possibly the best poster we've seen this year. Suicide Squad gets a comic book inspired one-sheet that is both colorful and exciting, and it manages to get all of the characters front and center. They are all part of a huge atomic blast that sits atop a pile of pastel colored sludge and comic book phrases that look the the original 1960s Batman TV Show on acid. It's truly unique.

From director David Ayer (Fury, End of Watch) comes Suicide Squad, starring Oscar nominee Will Smith (Ali, The Pursuit of Happyness), Oscar winner Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club), Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street, Focus), Joel Kinnaman (Netflix's House of Cards) and Oscar nominee Viola Davis (The Help, Doubt).

Howard Storm’s ‘My Descent Into Death’ to Be Adapted Into Movie

15 June 2016 12:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Alcon Entertainment has optioned film rights to Howard Storm’s book “My Descent Into Death,” a supernatural thriller dramatizing the author’s near-death experience.

Jinder Ho (“There,” “Past on Conversation”) will write the film adaptation. Mark Clayman (“The Pursuit of Happyness”) brought the book to Alcon and will produce along with Alcon principals Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove.

Carl Rogers will oversee the project with Alex Tompkins. Rogers, Alcon’s head of development, has been at the company since 2005.

Storm’s book, first published in 2000, details his experience in 1985, when he was awaiting emergency surgery and found himself out of his own body, looking down on the hospital room scene below. Rather than going “toward the light,” he found himself being torturously dragged to realms of darkness and death, and then to heaven before being transported back to earth with a new purpose.

Alcon’s upcoming projects include the road-trip comedy “Bastards,” now in post-production starring Owen Wilson and Ed Helms; and a sequel to “Blade Runner,” currently in pre-production with Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Robin Wright and Dave Bautista starring.

Jinder is repped by CAA and Andrew Coles at The Mission.

Suicide Squad TV Spots Unleash the Most Dangerous People on the Planet

12 June 2016 6:56 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While this year has already given us a slew of superhero movies, the villains will take over later this summer when Suicide Squad hits theaters. While we don't know when the next full trailer will debut, Warner Bros. has released three TV spots which feature new footage. We get never-before-seen moments featuring The Joker (Jared Leto) and even a brief glimpse of Batman (Ben Affleck). With less than three months left until Suicide Squad hits theaters, we'll have to wait and see how much more footage is released.

From director David Ayer (Fury, End of Watch) comes Suicide Squad, starring Oscar nominee Will Smith (Ali, The Pursuit of Happyness), Oscar winner Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club), Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street, Focus), Joel Kinnaman (Netflix's House of Cards) and Oscar nominee Viola Davis (The Help, Doubt). It feels good to be bad... Assemble a team of the world's most dangerous, incarcerated Supervillains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government's disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren't picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it's every man for himself?

The all-star ensemble cast for Suicide Squad includes Will Smith (Deadshot), |Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), and Jay Hernandez (El Diablo). Scott Eastwood and Ray Olubowale also appear in the movie, but their characters have not been revealed. We'll have to wait and see if their characters are confirmed between now and the release date.

Suicide Squad will be going up against The Weinstein Company's drama The Founder and EuropaCorp's comedy Nine Lives on August 5. This superhero adventure should have no trouble taking down The Founder and Nine Lives at the box office, but we'll have to wait and see. While we'll have to wait and see how this movie fares in theaters, Warner Bros. is already making plans for sequels and spinoffs.

Warner Bros. recently announced a Harley Quinn spinoff that may also feature characters like Batgirl and the Brids of Prey. Another report revealed that the studio is considering spinoffs for both The Joker and Boomerang as well, but it isn't known how far along in development any of these projects are. Another report claimed the studio wants director David Ayer to come back for Suicide Squad 2, with the studio eyeing an early 2017 shoot, although that hasn't been confirmed. Take a look at these new TV spots for Suicide Squad below. »
