Box-Office Oracle: 'The Hobbit' Takes on 'Les Miserables' and 'Django Unchained'

27 December 2012 3:55 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Current Streak: 2 Straight Weekends #1 Predicted Correctly Threat Level to Streak Being Broken: 90 percent or so? Every time I attempt one of these coin flip predictions they go horribly awry. Reason: There are so many questions surrounding this weekend. Is the older dollar going to take it with Les Miserables? Or will the kids support The Hobbit and Django Unchained? Do those two titles hurt each other's chances? Can a nearly three-hour musical top a less than two-hour musical (Mamma Mia) at the box office? Let's break it down! Les Miserables exploded onto the scene on Tuesday and hasn't looked back. The film put up a respectable $18 million dollar Christmas Day and followed it up with a sturdy $12 million on Wednesday, a day that is traditionally soft coming off of the holiday. The random question for this segment is will it matter with The Academy? The film is a certain Best Picture nominee, »

When Chinese-language interpreter Gaia (Francesca Cuttica) is offered a job that pays a fortune, she can’t believe her luck. This time, however, is going to be a little different. After being escorted to a secret location in Rome, she is locked inside a pitch-black room where she is asked to interpret the harsh interrogation of the eponymous ‘Wang’.

Remix: POTUSes — Movie Presidents of the United States

6 November 2012 10:31 AM, PST | Underground Film Journal | See recent Underground Film Journal news »

In a perfect video to watch on Election Day — or really any day for that matter — video mixologists Wreck & Salvage have put together an astounding compendium of clips of U.S. presidents from sci-fi flicks, comedies, drama, action movies and more. If you have trouble matching each Potus with each movie, below is a handy guide provided by W&S of the 51 films they’ve cribbed from.

The clips, of course, aren’t strung together willy-nilly. There’s a definite arc, flow and rhythm that provide a quasi narrative. Most movie presidents are there to deliver the “oh shit” news to the country — aliens are going to kill us all, an asteroid is going to kill us all, the economy’s in the toilet, all plant life is dying, etc. You know the “oh shit” news is coming when you hear the clichéd refrain, “Good evening, my fellow Americans.” (Actually, »

Limitless Director Neil Burger Drops Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Is In Talks For Divergent

23 August 2012 6:53 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Neil Burger is doing a bit of project swapping. While the Limitless director was attached to helm Uncharted: Drake's Fortune - the video game adaptation that David O. Russell also abandoned - he has decided to move on and instead is now in talks to helm the new teen film Divergent. While losing a director is rarely a good thing, there is some good news for the Uncharted movie. According to Variety, Marianne and Cormac Wibberley have been hired to do a rewrite of the video game movie. The two scribes are best known for writing both National Treasure and National Treasure: Book of Secrets. The selection of the Wibberleys is interesting given the fact that back in late 2010 - when Russell was still attached - the project was described as being similar in tone and feel to the National Treasure movies. The studio will wait until the new writers »

Mousterpiece Cinema, Episode 58: ‘National Treasure’ and ‘National Treasure: Book of Secrets’

18 August 2012 2:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

On this week’s Mousterpiece Cinema, Josh and Mike are joined by special guest Casey Ryan to tackle not one, but two movies. Yes, they shoved a discussion of the 2004 adventure film National Treasure along with its 2007 sequel, National Treasure: Book of Secrets into one jam-packed episode. The double-movie package may be a blessing in disguise, as the three quickly agree that both movies are cut from the same cloth, as it were. But what of Nicolas Cage and his penchant for nutty performances? Which film is your hosts’ favorite? Who’s the better villain–Sean Bean or Ed Harris? And who has the crazier haircut: Nicolas Cage or Tom Hanks? You’ll have to listen to find out the answers to all of these burning questions!

Being a spectator only allows us so many pleasures. It’s far from uncommon for people to watch something happen, watch someone do something as opposed to taking part. I’m not referring to movies or TV, I’m talking here about less passive activities. When we watch sporting events, on TV or in person, depending on the sport, it can be either thrilling or boring. Typically, it’s personal preference. Though it’s arguably very stereotypical to say so, golf is (to me) massively boring. I’ve mostly only seen golf highlights on TV, »

‘Stretch Armstrong’ Bends to ‘Crazies’ Director Breck Eisner

10 July 2012 6:57 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Relativity sure is taking its time with Stretch Armstrong. The studio acquired the rights to it back in January, after Universal cooled on their multi-picture toy and board game adaptation deal with Hasbro and dropped it — perhaps a wise decision, considering the dismal failure of Battleship. Besides hiring writer Dean Georgaris, little has happened in the six months of slow development. But, today, there’s finally some major news connected to the project

THR has learned that director Breck Eisner is in talks to bring the classic toy’s story to life, though it’s hard to gauge what kind of film he’ll turn out. His last big features were the remake of George Romero’s horror flick The Crazies and the action adventure outing, Sahara, so at least we know he’s versatile.

The article also stated that Greg Poirier (National Treasure: Book of Secrets) was hired to write the script, »

'The Crazies' Director Breck Eisner to Helm 'Stretch Armstrong' Movie

10 July 2012 6:26 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Since directing the surprisingly fun and suspenseful horror thriller The Crazies, director Breck Eisner has been linked to projects like Manhunt with Gerard Butler (which is apparently still in development) and the remake of Escape from New York that doesn't seem like it's getting off the ground anytime soon. Now Eisner is going in a slightly different direction as Heat Vision reports he is now negotiating to direct Stretch Armstrong, a film based on the toy which first appeared in 1976. The project has been developing at Relativity after the property fell away from Universal, which once attached Taylor Lautner to lead it. The project still doesn't have a male lead to play the titular elastic hero, but National Treasure: Book of Secrets scribe Greg Poirier has been hired to write the script. It's not clear if this film is going the route of being very family friendly, or more along »

Breck Eisner in Talks to Direct Stretch Armstrong

10 July 2012 5:19 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The feature film version of Stretch Armstrong now has a director.  The gestating adaptation of the classic Hasbro toy has been in development for a few years, with Taylor Lautner previously attached to star as the titular, flexible hero.  Relativity picked up the rights to the project from Universal back in January and set Greg Poirier (National Treasure: Book of Secrets) to write the script, and now Heat Vision reports that Breck Eisner has entered negotiations to take the helm. Eisner—the son of former Disney CEO Michael—previously directed the horror film The Crazies and 2005’s Sahara.  He landed on a shortlist of directors to helm Die Hard 5 before John Moore landed the gig, but Eisner recently signed on to helm the action-thriller Manhunt.  Whether his Stretch Armstrong will finally come to fruition remains to be seen, but Relativity seems keen on getting the film into production.   »

Big Shoes: ‘Modern Family’ Star Ty Burrell Replaces Robert Downey Jr. For ‘Mr. Peabody and Sherman’

16 March 2012 3:21 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

At one point, Robert Downey, Jr. was set to voice the genius time-traveling dog from Rocky and Bullwinkle fame, but now according to The Hollywood Reporter Modern Family‘s Ty Burrell will be filling in for his vocal chords. Burrell started in movies with Evolution (raise your hand if you remember it and/or still have a poster for it in the bedroom closet at your parent’s house) and went on to bit roles in stuff like Dawn of the Dead (2004), National Treasure: Book of Secrets and The Incredible Hulk. Of course, he’s reached a far bigger audience on the ABC show that’s won 39 awards and been nominated for nearly one hundred more. Now, he’ll be playing a dog. It’s the dream, people. Lion King director Rob Minkoff will be directing Mr. Peabody and Sherman, the story of a brilliant, talking dog and his young human being sidekick who hop into their »

Missing TV Review – ABC

14 March 2012 4:52 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

There’s a certain genre of television that I’m not very friendly with, and it’s something I should confess before anyone goes too far in this review. It’s a genre that is dominated by shows with initials as their names these days, and they are geared actually toward people somewhere around my age. I find them awful in general, stunted by broken, goofy dialog that often seems to be written by people who have never heard people speak in real life, and pushed along by action scenes that are curiously hokey, but with delusions of grandeur.

If such shows are your bag, and you can deal with Ashley Judd as an ex-cia badass (but, I repeat myself), then I’ve got a show for you.

Veering off from most shows in this genre, Missing is another installment of the long arc vs. truly episodic shows, and follows »

ABC’s action-packed drama series Missing (premiering on March 15th) tells the story of Becca Winstone (Ashley Judd), a woman who learns that her son (Nick Eversman) has disappeared while studying abroad. Immediately suspecting foul play, she travels to Rome to begin piecing together the clues left behind. And, it isn’t long before the kidnappers realize that they’ve picked a fight with the wrong woman, as Becca has a secret of her own – she happened to be a lethal CIA operative. If she wants to find her son alive, Becca will have to rely on old friends and put all of her old skills to the test. The series also stars Sean Bean (Game of Thrones), Cliff Curtis (Trauma), Adriano Giannini (Oceans Twelve) and Tereza Vorísková (Borgia).

Super Tuesday: Box Office Edition

6 March 2012 9:35 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

It might seem like the Gop primary season has been stretching on since the day Barack Obama entered the White House — with the seemingly endless blather about socialism-inspired domestic initiatives and terrorist-sympathizing foreign policy, about how gay marriage will destroy the moral fabric of society, about how asking for heath care-provided contraceptives makes you a slut — it's only just beginning.

Because today is Super Tuesday — the biggest, baddest day on the Gop nominating calendar. Primaries and caucuses in 10 states (Alaska, Georgia, Idaho, Massachusetts, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia) will be held today. 419 Gop convention delegates are up for grabs. Mitt Romney is vying to re-solidify his front-runner status. Rick Santorum is hoping voters will coalesce around a guy with a 1950s moral compass and a 21st-century hatred of government. And Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul are still hanging around because, well, what else have they got to do? »

Chris Pine/This Means War Fizzles: Box Office

Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hardy in This Means War Channing Tatum, Rachel McAdams, The Vow, box office, Michael Sucsy Trailing Act of Valor, Good Deeds, and The Vow at the domestic box office on Friday, at no. 4 Brad Peyton's Journey 2: The Mysterious Island added $3.2 million, according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. The 3D action-adventure tale, which is performing exceedingly well overseas, features Josh Hutcherson, Dwayne Johnson, and Vanessa Hudgens. Next in line at no. 5 was the Denzel Washington / Ryan Reynolds actioner Safe House, with $3.1 million. Depending on how The Vow, Journey 2, and Safe House perform on the weekend proper — as a kiddie flick, Journey 2 has the edge — there could be some switching around when final weekend figures are released on Monday. Safe House topped the Us/Canada box-office chart last weekend. At. no. 6 was This Means War, a box-office disappointment starring Water for Elephants' Reese Witherspoon, »
