‘Finding Dory,’ ‘Deadpool’ Make Big Splash with Holiday Shoppers

1 December 2016 9:11 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The busy post-Thanksgiving holiday shopping weekend proved no problem for Disney’s “Finding Dory” maintaining the top spot on the Npd VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart the week ended Nov. 27.

The animated Pixar sequel had debuted a week earlier at No. 1 and showed no signs of slowing down despite deep discounts on other recent releases and catalog titles. The No. 2 overall title, Fox’s “Deadpool,” sold just 29% as many copies as “Dory.”

“Deadpool” seems to be the biggest beneficiary of holiday discount deals, jumping up from No. 20 the week before on the overall chart. The ‘R’-rated superhero comedy, which has been available on disc since May, jumped to No. 4 on the Blu-ray chart, up from No. 22 the week before.

Holding onto the No. 3 overall spot, and moving up to No. 2 on the Blu-ray chart, »

Box Office: ‘The Accountant’ to Dominate ‘Kevin Hart’ With $23 Million Weekend

14 October 2016 1:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ben Affleck’s action-thriller “The Accountant” is heading for an easy victory this weekend in the $23 million range at 3,222 North American locations, early estimates showed Friday.

The opening of comedy concert film “Kevin Hart: What Now?” is in a battle for second place in the $10 million to $13 million range at 2,568 sites. And science-fiction adventure “Max Steel,” based on Mattel’s line of action figures, is launching dismally in the $2 million range at 2,034 locations.

The Accountant” appears to be over-performing recent forecasts, which pegged it in the $18 million to $20 million range. One early estimate gave it an opening day in the $9 million to $10 million range, which could push the Warner Bros. title past $25 million but the studio cautioned it’s likely to come in closer to $20 million.

The Accountant” took in $1.4 million in Thursday night previews, just above the figure for 2014’s thriller “Gone Girl,” which starred Rosamund Pike and »

With $35 Million 'Magnificent Seven' Tops Another Lackluster September Weekend

25 September 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

It wasn't quite the weekend we forecasted on Thursday afternoon as Sony's The Magnificent Seven remake and WB's animated Storks both fell short of Mojo's lofty expectations. The weekend overall didn't look much better as the top twelve failed to combine for $100 million for the fifth weekend in a row and the weekend itself was down 25% compared to the same weekend last year. At the top, Sony and MGM's The Magnificent Seven turned in an estimated $35 million opening from 3,674 theaters, just a few thousand behind the opening of Sully two weeks ago and just ahead of Denzel Washington's The Equalizer from 2014, which was also directed by Antoine Fuqua. It's tough to say exactly where this one will go from here as Westerns aren't your typical blockbuster for the modern era and films such as The Lone Ranger and Django Unchained began their runs on Wednesday and Tuesday respectively.

Weekend Box Office Preview: Western ‘The Magnificent Seven’ Duels Animated ‘Storks’

22 September 2016 10:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Western remake “The Magnificent Seven” (Sony) faces off against animated “Storks” (Warner Bros.) for #1 this weekend. But ranking is less important than how much the two movies pull in audiences. This fight pits the latest iteration of the venerable Hollywood western against a new example of the dominant genre ruling the 2016 box office.

Last weekend’s three duds and a big drop in Top Ten box office can be explained by retread projects that lacked appeal. However after a quick start to the season where six out of seven initial wide releases disappointed (Clint Eastwood’s “Sully” will end up grossing more than the other six combined), this week sees only two new wide releases.

That’s actually a sign of strength, since both look appealing enough to boost numbers. It’s an interesting combo, with both films having potential but neither guaranteed to open as well as “Sully” ($35 million), although both cost more. »

'Magnificent Seven' and 'Storks' Look to Turn Around Box Office Fortunes

22 September 2016 9:44 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

On the heels of the worst weekend of the year so far (based on cumulative gross for all titles) this weekend should perk things up a bit as MGM and Sony's The Magnificent Seven remake and WB's animated feature Storks are looking at strong openings. Projecting just how well this weekend's newcomers will perform, however, is something that's raising a few eyebrows in the wake of recent weeks and last week's box office bloodbath where not one, but two of the week's three new wide releases came in well below expectations, and all three failed to open over $10 million. Industry expectations for Magnificent Seven and Storks have both films opening around $30+ million. For Storks this number appears to be about right on target, but for Magnificent Seven it seems grossly conservative. Sony is projecting a $30-32 million weekend, but if it doesn't top $40 million it would be a bit of a surprise. »

‘Storks’: How Looney Tunes Animation Meets the Coen Brothers’ ‘Raising Arizona’

21 September 2016 1:33 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Storks,” the brainchild of the new Warner Animation Group screenwriting “think tank,” stretches the Looney Tunes ethos for CG in terms of both comedy and animation style.

First-time animation director Nicholas Stoller (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”), who wrote the script, teamed up with another directorial newbie, former Pixar animator Doug Sweetland (the “Presto” short), and they paid tribute to the Coen brothers’ “Raising Arizona,” a live-action Looney Tune of sorts.

Storks now deliver packages instead of babies for retail giant, Cornerstore.com, run by the greedy Hunter (Kelsey Grammer). That is, until Junior (Andy Stamberg) and human sidekick Tulip (Katie Crown) inadvertently unleash the long-dormant Baby Machine. They’re forced to deliver an adorable girl to her family, while warding off a Wolf Pack that’s also fallen in love with the baby.

But without its own in-house animation team, Warner Bros. turned to Sony Pictures Imageworks (now headquartered in Vancouver »

The Weekend Warrior 9/23/16: The Magnificent Seven, Storks

21 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out. 

This Past Weekend:

 Yikes. What a terrible weekend we just had, not only for the new movies released but also for the Weekend Warrior’s predictions. Clint Eastwood and Tom HanksSully won its second weekend in a row with just under $22 million, but as far as the new movies, neither Lionsgate’s Blair Witch nor Universal’s Bridget Jones’s Baby did very well, putting the last nail in the coffin (hopefully) for sequels/remakes trying to play upon nostalgia that just isn’t there. (Good luck to the Rings movie opening next month!) Blair Witch ended up with $9.6 million to take second place and both Bridget Jones’s Baby and Oliver Stone’s Snowden ended up with around $8 million, so »

Smurfette, Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty Star face off against plants in the Forbidden Forest in the first teaser trailer for Sony Animation’s “Smurfs: The Lost Village.”

Kevin Can Wait Season 1 Review

20 September 2016 11:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One episode was provided prior to broadcast.

Kevin James is a simple entertainer. His blue collar-friendly brand is designed to appeal to undemanding middle-aged schlubs, or at the very least, easy-to-please hard-working people who just want to kick their feet back, gulp down a couple beers and enjoy themselves for a few hours. The kind of people who don’t expect more than the familiar pleasures they’ve been given before. And there’s nothing particularly wrong with that either. James’ style might be boring and repetitive to some of us (well, maybe most of us), but he’s a smart businessman. He knows what his fans expect from him, and he tries to meet their modest demands. That logic drives Kevin Can Wait, James’ return to CBS and broadcast television.

It’s been nine years since James stepped away from King of Queens, pursing a career on the big »

Box Office: ‘Sully’ Flies High to $35.5 Million U.S. Opening

11 September 2016 7:39 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tom Hanks’ “Sully” has taken off with a stellar $35.5 million at 3,525 North American locations, marking a solid start to the fall box office season.

Directed by Clint Eastwood, “Sully” handily outperformed recent expectations, which had been in the $25 million range. The action-adventure, which recreates 2009’s “Miracle on the Hudson” emergency landing, generated an A CinemaScore in a strong signal that “Sully” should continue to draw well in coming weeks.

Sony-Screen Gems drama “When the Bough Breaks” opened respectably in second with $15 million at 2,246 sites. Lionsgate’s launch of European animated comedy “The Wild Life” generated only modest interest in fifth place with $3.4 million at 2,493 locations while Relativity’s horror film “The Disappointments Room” was nearly invisible with $1.4 million at 1,554 screens for a dismal $901 per-screen average.
