Spectre hits $750 million at the global box office

4 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It might have received a mixed reception from fans and critics, but James Bond’s 24 adventure continues to rake in the cash at the box office, with Spectre pushing its global total beyond $750 million this weekend.

In the States, the film has earned $176.1 million and counting, adding $12.8 million this weekend to overtake both Casino Royale ($167 million) and Quantum of Solace ($168 million) and become the second biggest Bond film in that market after Skyfall – a feat it’s already achieved here in the UK, where it is currently the third highest grossing movie of all time behind Avatar and Skyfall.

Spectre is the sixth movie to surpass $750 million this year, joining the likes of Inside Out ($851.5 million), Minions ($1.157 billion), Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.405 billion), Furious 7 ($1.515 billion) and Jurassic World ($1.669 billion).

Box Office: ‘Hunger Games’ Leads Thanksgiving Pack, ‘Creed’ Scores

8 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Moviegoers said goodbye to Katniss Everdeen and welcomed back Rocky Balboa, a series of farewells and reunions that powered Thanksgiving box office receipts above last year’s holiday.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” led a crowded field of contenders, topping charts with $75.8 million and bringing its domestic total to $198.3 million. It marks the final film in the hugely popular series, although Lionsgate, the studio behind the franchise, has hinted it wants to figure out ways to create future spin-offs.

The previous two “Hunger Games” films have both debuted the week before Thanksgiving and gone on to rule multiplexes over the holiday. Its dominance is practically a holiday tradition.

If “Mockingjay – Part 2’s” strong returns was a familiar Thanksgiving sight, the big surprise was how well “Creed” performed. The film successfully brought back Sylvester Stallone’s iconic Rocky character and revived a boxing franchise that seemed like a Reagan-era relic after »

The Daniel Craig Era: Bond takes two steps forward, one step back

28 November 2015 12:00 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With Spectre out in theaters, there has been no shortage of debate among Bond fans about where this entry lands in the series’ spectrum of quality, with some like PopOptiq’s own lead film critic J.R. Kinnard calling it “a glorious love letter to classic Bond”. To some this will sound like exactly what they want to hear, but after twenty-six movies (the Eon productions, along with 1967’s Casino Royale and Never Say Never Again), is an homage to classic formula the best way to close out what had seemed to be an attempt to genuinely take the franchise in a new direction during the Daniel Craig years? Tributes are for those who have no more to offer- those who soon will be gone, if they’re not already. Life and movie franchises are about pushing forward to stay alive; Spectre‘s safe retreat will only make regaining momentum that much more difficult. »

Box Office: ‘Hunger Games’ Tops ‘Good Dinosaur,’ ‘Creed’ Heading Into Thanksgiving

26 November 2015 8:26 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” led a crowded field of box office contenders heading into the Thanksgiving holiday. The final film in the popular futuristic series nabbed $13.7 million on Wednesday, pushing its domestic haul to $183 million.

But two other films threatened to dethrone the blockbuster — “Creed,” a euphorically reviewed “Rocky” reboot,  and “The Good Dinosaur,” a Pixar release destined to launch a thousand toylines.

Globally, “Mockingjay – Part 2” has earned nearly $320 million. It is expected to top stateside charts for the second weekend in a row with $75 million, despite debuting last weekend to a weaker than expected $102.7 million, the lowest opening for any “Hunger Games” installment.

Creed” punched above its weight, picking up $6 million from 3,350 locations in its opening day. The Ryan Coogler (“Fruitvale Station”) drama focuses on the son of Rocky Balboa rival Apollo Creed, played by Michael B. Jordan. Sylvester Stallone dons the monosyllables once again to play Balboa, »

On Mubi / Off #1: "Terminal Island" & "Spectre"

23 November 2015 8:15 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The parameters, mutually agreed upon by my editor Danny Kasman and myself, are these: A bi-weekly (every two weeks) column, entitled "On Mubi / Off," covering two films—one currently available on the Mubi streaming platform in the United States, the other screening offsite (in theaters, on VOD, Blu-ray/DVD, etc). The movies may share some similarities in approach, execution and theme, or they may not. Mostly, my own interests and curiosity will dictate what films are covered and in what way, and I hope you'll find the prose, the pairings, and/or the analysis compelling enough to follow along.On MUBITerminal Island (Stephanie Rothman, 1973)Sight unseen, I thought Stephanie Rothman's 1973 exploitation cheapie Terminal Island would make for a good inaugural article lead-off—something Z-grade disreputable to complement the A-level sleaze (not necessarily a criticism) of the other movie covered in this column.

The Most Useful James Bond Gadgets For Normal People

22 November 2015 3:38 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Part of the fun of being a spy is using nifty spy gadgets to accomplish your mission. As perhaps the most famous spy in cinema, James Bond gets to use all sorts of these crazy gadgets, courtesy of Q branch. But what about the rest of us? When do we get to play with all of these cool gizmos?

This is a collection of James Bond gadgets that I think would best translate into real-world use. Granted, most of James Bond’s gadgets are usually some sort of covert explosive or fancy way to kill somebody, but there are a select few that are not lethal. These are gadgets that, if technologically possible, would help make our lives easier. If only we had a Q in real life...

Gadget: Miniature Rebreather

As Seen In: Thunderball, and Die Another Day

Is It Possible? No

The idea behind the rebreather is that »

'Mockingjay Part 2' Creeps Over $100 Million for First Place Finish

22 November 2015 9:49 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 opened $20 million below Part 1, but with an estimated opening weekend of $101 million it becomes the fifth 2015 release to open above the century mark. It's tough to call a film that opens north of $100 million a flop (because it's not), but "disappointing" seems appropriate given the lofty heights previous installments reached. Theories as to what happened are easy enough to conjure up and most likely they all played some kind of role in why this fourth installment in what, effectively, is a three film franchise couldn't even match the opening of its predecessor. In its favor, Mockingjay 2 opened an hour earlier on Thursday night than Part 1, it had Jennifer Lawrence as its star and it was the finale in a franchise that has now grossed more than $2.5 billion worldwide. Heading into the weekend there was something of a palpable question mark concerning how well it would do, »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 review – dystopian drama struggles to its conclusion

22 November 2015 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Jennifer Lawrence fights on to the flawed denoument of an entertaining series with complex ideas about power and corruption

If The Hunger Games was Battle Royale, Catching Fire was Rollerball and Mockingjay – Part 1 was Broadcast News, then everything goes a bit Quantum of Solace in this hotchpotch final instalment. MJ2 picks up exactly where its predecessor left off, with Katniss Everdeen (girl on fire Jennifer Lawrence) nursing injuries inflicted upon her by the recently retrieved but still brainwashed Peeta (Josh Hutcherson). As rebel forces ready themselves for the last battle with President Snow (the silver-tongued Donald Sutherland), Julianne Moore’s Alma Coin starts to look less like a liberator than an ice queen in waiting, leaving Katniss wondering what – and for whom – she is fighting.

Despite an attempt to bring the spirit of the games on to the battlefield (marauding House of the Dead-style “mutts” and contrived booby-trapped battlefields »

Olga Kurylenko loves talking about philosophy

21 November 2015 2:50 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Olga Kurylenko is fascinated by philosophy. The Hollywood beauty - who is best known for her starring role opposite Daniel Craig in the 2008 James Bond movie 'Quantum of Solace' - has revealed that away from film sets, she relishes the opportunity to have intellectual chats with her pals. She said: ''I love philosophy. I love getting into discussions about why we're all here. I love psychology. And I'm passionate about medicine. ''It's a weird thing. I'm fascinated by the human body and I think we're an incredible machine - and how medicine interferes in good or bad ways with the machine, it's amazing. You probably didn't expect me to say that!'' The actress - who is currently starring in the new crime thriller 'Momentum' - also revealed she has a recurring dream involving an elevator. She told Metro newspaper: ''I've had the recurring elevator dream, »

Pierce Brosnan Not A Fan Of "Spectre"

17 November 2015 12:28 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Despite healthy box-office, the latest James Bond film "Spectre" has ended up with a mixed reviews overall. Scoring a 60/100 on Metacritic and a 63% (6.4/10) on Rotten Tomatoes, that puts it only just above the 58/100 and 65% (6.1/10) respectively earned by current Bond star Daniel Craig's least liked film "Quantum of Solace" - and far behind both "Casino Royale" and "Skyfall" which scored stellar reaction.

Now, one former 007 has also expressed disappointment in the newest entry - Pierce Brosnan. Speaking with HitFix, Brosnan shared his review of the new film which praises Craig but mostly criticises the story and more specifically the pacing - a common complaint considering this was the longest Bond film to date:

"I was looking forward to it enormously. I thought it was too long. The story was kind of weak - it could have been condensed. It kind of went on too long. It really did.

['Spectre'] is neither fish nor fowl. »

Box Office: Spectre is Again Unmatched

Since there was pretty much zero opposition from the new batch of releases Spectre finished the weekend once again on top followed by The Peanuts Movie in 2nd. Spectre nabbed another $33.7 million over the weekend, off by just 52.5% against its opening. That’s actually much better than I was expecting, beats the 2nd weekend drops of Quantum of Solace […]

Forecast: 'Spectre' and 'Peanuts' Hope for Strong Second Weekend Holds

12 November 2015 3:24 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Spectre's $70.4 million opening last weekend was the seventh largest of 2015 and this weekend it faces little to no incoming competition. The week's new wide releases include the Chilean miner drama The 33, the Christmas-themed family feature Love the Coopers and the period, football drama My All American. Not one of these three new wide releases will be threatening the top two spots at the box office, which means the second weekend of Spectre and The Peanuts Movie draw the majority of our attention. Starting with Spectre, the first instinct is to look to Skyfall's second weekend back in 2012. After a monster opening, Skyfall dropped 53.5% in the face of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2's $141 million opening weekend. Quantum of Solace dropped 60% when it faced off, and took second to, the first Twilight film back in 2008. Twilight, however, isn't exactly direct competition. Taking that into consideration, it would suggest those weekend »

10 Best Scenes From The Daniel Craig Bond Movies

25 October 2015 12:15 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


It’s hard to argue that the Daniel Craig Bond era has been anything but a rousing success. Casino Royale was a fantastic re-invention of the character, Quantum Of Solace took a stylistic approach to some deep themes and Skyfall entertainingly tackled the Bond legacy as a whole. There were certainly some low points but on the whole, his movies have all been enjoyable thus far.

Along with this new Bond came a new era ushered in for the series. Gone were the silly gadgets and ridiculous world-conquering plans. They were replaced with gritty action, believable motives, and a character rooted in the real world of modern espionage. The result of which was a bevy of memorable moments for the famous character as he navigated a flurry of new threats over the course of three films.

James Bond 007: revisiting Skyfall

23 October 2015 11:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




A peroxide Terminator, a magnificent M, and stunning set-pieces. We revisit Sam Mendes' first Bond film, Skyfall...

The film: Brilliant first half, problematic second. But even the second half is still pretty good. Manages to celebrate the traditions/clichés of the franchise without ever descending into parody. Stunning set-pieces in Istanbul, Shanghai and Macau showcase the globetrotting and glamour that has served the franchise so well (naturally, we end in Scotland). The plot disappears halfway through and finale is again underwhelming, although less so than the previous Craigs. Ultimately Skyfall is a great Bond film on first watch, a very good one thereafter.  

The Villain:  A fine antagonist, although certainly not the best ever. The first camp baddie since Wint and Kidd in Diamonds Are Forever (and they were only henchmen). Silva is a heap of fun. His deep, sexy voice charms you, but those cold »

Early Reviews For Sam Mendes’ Spectre Are A Mixed Bag

22 October 2015 9:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Opening a full fortnight earlier than its planned debut in North America, the early reviews for Sam Mendes’ much-anticipated spy sequel Spectre have found their way online – and they’re a mixed bag.

Arriving in the seemingly inescapable shadow of 2013’s Skyfall, the director’s clandestine follow-up was always going to be fighting an uphill battle, and these early, somewhat divisive reactions are emblematic of those weighty expectations.

Universally, though, every outlet was full of praise for Spectre‘s much-touted opening sequence. Orbiting on the famed Mexican Dia de los Muertos celebration, the production drafted in hundreds of extras, two daring helicopter pilots and scores of stunt coordinators. The result is, apparently, one of the best pre-credits segment in MGM’s prestigious series.

Without further ado, though, here are some early verdicts coming out of the film’s UK premiere.


Consequently, there’s a little more room in “Spectre »

Film Review: ‘Spectre’

21 October 2015 5:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The dead are alive” are the very first words printed onscreen in “Spectre,” the 24th and far-from-last James Bond adventure. It’s a statement that could be viewed as a pre-emptive spoiler, a sly double-bluff or a swaggering boast from a death-defying franchise that, following the soaring success of “Skyfall,” couldn’t be in ruder health. Sam Mendes’ second consecutive Bond outing again passes its physical with flying colors: Ricocheting from London to Rome to Morocco across action sequences of deliriously daft extravagance, the pic accumulates a veritable Pompeii of mighty, crumbling structures. What’s missing is the unexpected emotional urgency of “Skyfall,” as the film sustains its predecessor’s nostalgia kick with a less sentimental bent. A wealth of iconography — both incidental and integral — from the series’ founding chapters is revived here, making “Spectre” a particular treat for 007 nerds, and a businesslike blast for everyone else.

'Spectre': Film Review

21 October 2015 4:58 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Empires collapse, stock markets crash, dynasties die out, but James Bond endures as one of cinema's longest-running and most lucrative franchises for over half a century. The 24th installment in the official 007 canon, Spectre is the sequel to Skyfall, which gave the seminal spy-thriller series a pleasingly smart and sophisticated makeover after the dismal Quantum of Solace. This classy upgrade paid off with box office receipts of $1.1 billion, the most profitable Bond vehicle to date.  So it is no surprise that Spectre reunites the same core creative team including director Sam Mendes and screenwriters

Spectre review

21 October 2015 4:39 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Can Spectre match the success of the previous James Bond outing, Skyfall? Here's Ryan's spoiler-free review...

Nb: While this review is as spoiler-free as we could make it, you may find mention of a few plot points from Skyfall.

The billion-breaking success of Skyfall was such that it’s little surprise that its leading players, from director Sam Mendes to Daniel Craig, were given pause. That 50th anniversary adventure - Bond’s 23rd - left them with a tough act to follow, after all. Fitting, then, that Spectre’s opening sequence takes place in front of a huge crowd; all eyes are on Mendes and his team of filmmakers to see what they can come up with this time.

As openings go, Spectre’s is a slickly assured one, set among the pulsating rhythms of Mexico’s Day of the Dead festival. Cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema sweeps us through the city, »

Review: Sam Mendes' 'Spectre' Starring Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux & Ralph Fiennes

21 October 2015 4:03 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The Daniel Craig era of Bond movies has been something of a mixed bag so far. "Casino Royale" got things off to a strong start nine years ago — a classy, surprisingly emotional picture that truly delivered a 007 for the new millennium. But a script rushed by the writer's strike and some poor direction led to follow-up "Quantum Of Solace" disappointing all but the most undemanding Bond fans. Then "Skyfall" rebooted anew, with some strong set pieces, a great villain, stellar reviews and a billion-dollar box office haul. There were still complaints that Sam Mendes' film didn't quite feel like Bond in places, so it would be nice to report that his second movie in the franchise, "Spectre," will please both the hardcore and the more casual fan. Unfortunately, the new film, the 24th in the long-running series, feels more like a successor to 'Quantum,' or to one of the ropier Roger Moore films, »
