Box Office: ‘Maze Runner’ Sprints Past Liam Neeson With $32.5 Million

21 September 2014 7:46 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Maze Runner” showed that sometimes the weekend box office is a marathon, not a sprint.

Twentieth Century Fox’s adaptation of James Dashner’s post-apocalyptic novel took awhile to build up steam, but found its core audience by the weekend’s midpoint. It debuted to $32.5 million from 3,604 locations, in line with projections. That’s good news for the studio, which hopes to turn the story of a group of teenagers battling nasty creatures in a dangerous labyrinth into a franchise.

“All of the elements came together in accomplishing something that no one ever tried by launching a young adult film like this in September,” said Chris Aronson, Fox’s domestic distribution chief. “We like to stand out whenever we can and we selected this release date in order to be the first event film of the fall.”

The unique opening date allowed “The Maze Runner” to jet ahead of »

The hidden family heartache behind director Shawn Levy's 'This Is Where I Leave You'

20 September 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Shawn Levy is what happens when someone who has never forgotten what it means to be a boy becomes a dad.

The director of Real Steel, the Night at the Museum movies, and the new bittersweet family comedy This Is Where I Leave You (in theaters now), is an undeniable family guy. The father of four girls, he’s known for making movies about households run amok (2003’s Cheaper By the Dozen) and parents who desperately want an evening away (2010’s Date Night,) as well as fathers who redeem themselves in their kids’ eyes with the help of boxing robots or magical museums. »

18 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

This Is Where I Leave You, boasting a bona fide all-star cast, chronicles the reunion of estranged siblings who, granting their father’s dying wish, sit shiva together following his funeral.

Based on Jonathan Tropper’s 2009 novel, Judd (Jason Bateman), Wendy (Tina Fey), Phillip (Adam Driver) and Paul (Corey Stoll) reluctantly live under the same roof together with their mother Hillary (Jane Fonda) for a week. During the tense seven days, the siblings and their respective significant others share laughs, tears and moments of rage. The movie, directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum), also stars Rose Byrne, Kathryn Hahn, Connie Briton, Timothy Olyphant and Dax Shepard

This is Where I Judge You: In the Great Well of Family Drama, Levy Is Dry

Based on the acclaimed novel by Jonathan Tropper, who adapts his own screenplay, This Is Where I Leave You hardly lives up to the Sirkian soap as its delightfully sappy title would lead you to predict. Tropper, with the aid of mainstream heavy Shawn Levy (who sports a resume that includes those Night at the Museum films and Real Steel), has managed to give us a film that feels like the Grand Hotel of family reunion dramas. A nest of WASPs wades around under the disguise of their mixed Jewish ancestry to gimmicky effect in a drama about a large number of otherwise privileged people chronically unhappy with their inability to transcend their conditioning and seek fulfillment from a fabricated, pedestrian lifestyle. Levy and Tropper aim for middle ground with a portrait of familial »

‘This Is Where I Leave You’s’ Shawn Levy Proud to Get ‘Career Defining Performance’ from Jason Bateman

16 September 2014 10:57 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Monday night’s steamy weather stirred plenty of emotions at the L.A. premiere of Warner Bros.This Is Where I Leave You” at the Tcl Chinese.

Director Shawn Levy mused at the afterparty that he had taken the gig as a break from his usual broad comedies such as the “Night at the Museum” franchise. He said he was proud to get Jason Bateman to shed tears in what Levy called a “career defining” performance.

'I really wanted to take the pressure off Jason to cry in the movie so I told him he didn't have to' – Shawn Levy pic.twitter.com/33BbANiSqZ

“‘I’ve never seen Jason Bateman full-on cry,” he added.  “Any time he had scenes with Jane Fonda, it pushed those buttons.”

Corey Stoll, who portrays Bateman’s older brother, said actors wound up falling into sibling patterns during the five-week shoot. »

Arab World’s Relentless Crises Boost Citizen Journalism & Freedom Of Expression As TV Ratings & Film Box Office Rise

14 September 2014 8:53 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

In a region where the media biz is often more noted for being polarized, the atrocious actions that have brought Isis global attention have unified the vast majority of decent moral Arabs across sectarian and political divides against the exceptionally brutal terror group.

President Obama and dozens of countries are rushing an emergency plan to eradicate Isis on the ground, and the world is getting to know this organization because of the horrific beheadings of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff and last night’s atrocity against married British aid worker and father of two David Cawthorne Haines. The Arab world, however, was already all too aware of the group’s murderous tactics, as thousands of Arab civilians have been killed in recent months in Syria and Iraq.

Isis has created an unprecedented amount of upheaval that has manifested itself in different ways. Journalists who cover the region have »

Toronto: ‘Theory Of Everything’ Sends Oscar Race Into Early Overdrive As TIFF World Premieres Keep On Coming

8 September 2014 5:22 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

In terms of Oscar watching, the most anticipated World Premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival debuted Sunday night and it did not disappoint. Focus Features, as expected, has a major contender in The Theory Of Everything, its Stephen Hawking biopic that turns out to be a touching and unusual love story between the young Hawking and his wife Jane. The film is based on her memoir, and Anthony McCarten’s adaptation and first-rate direction by Oscar winner James Marsh (Man On Wire) get it all right. Stars Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones will both be heading to the Oscars in the lead actor and actress categories, and if the buzz at the Patria afterparty is any indication, they could be going there with front-runner status (although the season is just getting rolling). To say the response here was rapturous would not be understating the enthusiasm I heard »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

Toronto Film Review: ‘This Is Where I Leave You’

7 September 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sitting shiva makes the heart grow fonder (and the libido rage and the repressed grievances runneth over) in “This Is Where I Leave You,”. Repping a concerted effort by “Night at the Museum” and “Cheaper By the Dozen” helmer Shawn Levy to spread his wings beyond the gilded cage of family-friendly tentpoles, this alternately manic and mawkish adaptation of Jonathan Tropper’s 2009 novel aims for “Kramer Vs. Kramer” and “Terms of Endearment” territory and ends up somewhere closer to a Semitic “Home For the Holidays” or “August: Osage County.” But a tremendous ensemble cast gives the pic a significant boost, especially when they’re allowed to act rather than merely act out. Opening wide Sept. 19 following its Toronto Film Festival bow, “This” occupies an increasingly rare space on a major studio’s release slate: a literary adaptation that’s neither tween-centric nor awards bait, but which could generate some modest »
