This ranking includes only new theatrical releases viewed for the awards year of 2016 (for eligibility for the Academy Awards and the Ofcs and Awfj awards); some films released in the UK without Us releases (and so ineligible for those awards this year) may also be included, for my own bookkeeping purposes. Links go to my review. Numbers after each entry are Date First Viewed/NYC Release Date/London Release Date; year is 2016 unless otherwise noted.

01.03.17: This ranking is not quite final; I will continue to add films and links to reviews through the awards season that ends with the Oscars ceremony on February 26th for a little while longer still.

After Dick Clark Productions Deal Fails to Close, What’s Next for Dalian Wanda?

14 March 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Wang Jianlin has led a triumphal march through Hollywood. Drawing on bottomless cash reserves, the Dalian Wanda Group chairman has snapped up theater chains and forged powerful friendships, while vowing someday to own a major studio. But last week, China’s richest man found himself in an unfamiliar position: being short of cash.

Wanda had agreed last fall to buy Dick Clark Productions — the company behind live TV events like the Golden Globe Awards and “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” — for $1 billion. But under pressure from Chinese regulators and faced with steep losses at Legendary Entertainment, another Wanda property, Wang couldn’t close the deal.

Wanda declined comment for this story.

The stunning reversal is a major embarrassment for Wang and puts his conquest of Hollywood, once seemingly inevitable, in grave doubt. It also raises broader concerns about the future of Chinese investments in the U.S. »

Kong: Skull Island Post-Credit Scene Almost Got the Axe

12 March 2017 4:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, it was confirmed that there is a post-credit scene attached to Warner Bros.' Kong: Skull Island, which sets up the highly-anticipated Godzilla: King of Monsters in 2019, which will in turn set up Godzilla vs. Kong in 2020. As it turns out, it seems that scene was almost cut by the studio, according to director Jordan Vogt-Roberts. Here's what the filmmaker had to say in a recent interview about why it almost got the axe.

"We shot that during production, and it was actually one of those things that they had taken off the movie at one point. For some reason, there was concern about it, and I was really happy when everyone decided let's bring this back. I think that's what people want to know is happening."

During his interview with Cinema Blend, the filmmaker did not say why the scene was almost removed, but the scene made the final cut anyway. »

Kong: Skull Island Pummels Logan with $61M Win at the Box Office

12 March 2017 3:22 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After 20th Century Fox's Logan came away with an easy box office win last weekend, many were expecting the superhero movie to take the top spot at the box office this weekend as well. While Logan didn't suffer a tremendously drastic second weekend drop (57.2%), it did drop to second place, with Warner Bros. Kong: Skull Island overperforming, taking in an impressive $61 million while Logan earned a decent $37.8 million. While it was originally expected to be a close weekend at the box office, Kong: Skull Island had no trouble running away with the box office crown.

Box Office Mojo reports that Kong: Skull Island opened with an impressive $15,865 per-screen average from 3,846 theaters. While the debut was impressive, it does fall quite short of 2014's Godzilla, which opened huge with $93.1 million in 2014, but dropped a massive 66.8% in its second weekend and 61.2% in its third weekend, closing its domestic run with $200.6 million with a worldwide tally of $529 million, »

Avengers: Infinity War Finds Thanos a Sidekick

10 March 2017 4:42 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel's highly-anticipated Phase 4 sequel Avengers: Infinity War started production back in January. Even though filming has been under way for a few months, little has been revealed about the story. We reported in January that Peter Dinklage was being sought to play an unspecified character, with theories running rampant that he's playing either Modok or Pip the Troll, neither of which have been confirmed. Today we have word that the movie has added another cast member, motion capture specialist Terry Notary, who will have a pivotal role.

The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Terry Notary, who was promoting his work as the title ape in Kong: Skull Island, which he performed via motion capture. He has also portrayed the ape Rocket in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and the upcoming War For the Planet of the Apes, and Peon in last year's Warcraft. »

‘Kong: Skull Island’: How Ilm Created the Biggest, Most Badass King Kong Ever

10 March 2017 12:22 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ “Kong: Skull Island” transports the big screen’s favorite giant gorilla to the Vietnam era (riffing on “Apocalypse Now”) and takes full advantage of the land-out-of-time motif. So it’s fitting that the film also returns to the original 1933 stop-motion design of “King Kong” to animate the beast.

“Kong” creator Willis O’Brien would be pleased. He’d also be amazed at the technological advancement, which even surpasses Peter Jackson’s 2005 remake that won the VFX Oscar for its CG and performance-captured brilliance.

“What’s interesting is that Kong is intentionally not a gorilla in this film,” said Ilm’s VFX supervisor Jeff White. “Jordan wanted to go back to the 1933 version where Kong was more of a new species — a hybrid of man and gorilla. And we came back to the idea that he’s a movie monster, so he doesn’t walk on all fours. And »

Kong Storms a California Beach, More Skull Island Footage Surfaces

7 March 2017 11:58 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It seems that Warner Bros. is going the extra mile to promote their highly-anticipated Kong: Skull Island, with a new aerial video from a Los Angeles news station that shows some massive King Kong footprints that have mysteriously surfaced on a local beach. The video reveals that these footprints span 25-feet long by 12 feet wide, which were created in conjunction with the Los Angeles premiere at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood tomorrow, Wednesday, March 8. If that wasn't enough, we also have new TV spots, along with a few videos where star Tom Hiddleston explains why this movie is not a remake, sequel or a prequel.

Fox La debuted this new aerial video high above Dockweiler State Beach near the Los Angeles International Airport (Lax), with the reporter hinting that there may be a few more footprint sightings around L.A. between now and the premiere. Warner Bros. has also debuted »

Will Kong: Skull Island Demolish Logan at the Box Office?

7 March 2017 9:42 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

20th Century Fox's Logan proved to be a lucrative swan song for Hugh Jackman's title character, as the final Wolverine movie became a box office hit with a huge $88.4 million opening weekend, which is actually $3.1 million more than the $85.3. million estimate posted on Sunday. This weekend, it only has one new competitor, Warner Bros.' Kong: Skull Island, which is shaping up to give Logan a run for its money in what could be a very close brawl at the box office. We're predicting that Logan holds onto the crown for one more weekend, taking in $42.6 million, with Kong: Skull Island not too far behind.

Box Office Mojo doesn't have any data regarding how many theaters Kong: Skull Island will open in, but it's already shaping up to be a critical hit. Early reviews have put this King Kong adventure at an impressive 82% on Rotten Tomatoes, with 42 positive reviews »

Exclusive: Toby Kebbell on returning to the world of mo-cap in Kong: Skull Island

7 March 2017 3:39 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

Though making a remarkable impression when starring in Shane Meadows’ Dead Man Shoes, Toby Kebbell has since become more renowned for his work in blockbusters, notably in the Planet of the Apes franchise, and more recently with Fantastic Four and Warcraft. Embracing the new means of storytelling, using motion-capture, it’s a world he’s returned to yet again, this time in Kong: Skull Island, where he plays two roles.

First and foremost he is soldier Jack Chapman, but he also helped out with the character of Kong himself, telling us that he was brought in to capture the more subtle sense of emotion the character requires.

“What I came back and did was give them the nuance of emotion, even in the roar, making sure it had some pain attached to it,” he said. “It wasn’t just the roar of a wild beast, so I »

Box Office: ‘Lego Batman’ Tops as Matt Damon’s ‘Great Wall,’ ‘Cure for Wellness’ Flop

20 February 2017 7:49 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Two mysterious billionaires, one of the toy variety, the other with a penchant for sex games, triumphed at the box office over a trio of new film releases during a muted Presidents Day Weekend.

Once again, “The Lego Batman Movie” loomed large at the multiplexes, picking up $42.5 million to take first place on the charts for the second consecutive weekend. The Warner Bros. release has now earned $107.1 million stateside. It focuses on a one-percenter who dons a bat costume in order to rescue Gotham City from the Joker.

Universal’s “Fifty Shades Darker,” a look at the bedroom habits of a titan of industry, came in second, picking up $24 million at 3,714 sites. The erotic drama has helped bring Bdsm into the mainstream, while earning roughly $92 million. That’s a solid result, although it trails its predecessor, “Fifty Shades of Grey,” which had made $131 million at a similar point in its run. »
