29 October 2013 11:26 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson already has had one successful reality TV project with 'The Hero' on TNT and now will be given an opportunity to expand his reach into the market with a new show titled 'Wake Up Call'. The WWE wrestler has a nice resume on the big screen with starring roles in “Race to Witch Mountain,” “The Tooth Fairy,” “Planet 51,” “Get Smart” and “The Game Plan” but returns to TV again for this project. In June 2013, the TNT show "The Hero" debuted where Johnson was there to help motivate and mentor competitors each week as they are faced with challenges pushing them to their limits. The show was a success and now Variety reports that TNT has ordered eight hourlong episodes of “Wake Up Call” ( a follow up to "The Hero") and will debut the series next year (2014). The report reveals: "Wake Up Call" will feature Johnson »

Spanish Animation Generates Heat in Otherwise Tepid Market

18 May 2013 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Once the Cinderella of film production, Spain’s animation output is now knocking on global market doors, boosted by the growing commitment of private broadcasters.

Enrique Gato’s Indiana Jones parody, “Tad, the Lost Explorer,” Spain’s biggest local toon hit ever ($24.8 million), marked one milestone. The film has gone on to corral $50 million-plus worldwide, and counting.

Ilion Animation Studios’ $60 million Planet 51, a Sony U.S. pickup, paved the way by scoring $105.7 million worldwide in 2010.

For crisis-beleaguered Spanish production, animation is proving to be a lifeline.

Two of Spain’s more anticipated releases — the $28.6 million-budgeted “Justin and the Knights of Valour,” produced by Antonio Banderas, and Argentinian Juan Jose Campanella’s $20 million Foosball — are animated features.

Obliged to invest 3% of annual revenues in Spanish film production, TV broadcasters will play a crucial role in this growing phenomenon.

Weekend Report: 'Die Hard' Narrowly Wins Presidents Day Weekend

18 February 2013 2:32 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

A Good Day to Die Hard opened in first place over Presidents Day weekend, though it was overshadowed to some extent by strong runner-up performances from Safe Haven and Escape From Planet Earth. Meanwhile, Beautiful Creatures was such a huge miss that it could temporarily quell the post-Twilight young adult adaptation craze.For the four-day holiday weekend, the Top 12 grossed $149.4 million, which is off around 13 percent from the same period last year. Overall, the month of February is on pace to wind up significantly off from last year's record-setting $818.2 million gross.A Good Day to Die Hard grossed $28.6 million over the four-day period, which ranks 10th all-time among Presidents Day openers. That's a bit underwhelming for a heavily-marketed franchise movie: in comparison, Unknown opened to $25.5 million on Presidents Day 2011, while Safe House tallied $27.5 million over Presidents Day last year (which was the movie's second weekend). Rolling in its Thursday gross, »
