January 2011 Preview

To allow breathing room for the swarm of movies that hit theaters each December, Hollywood has historically burnt off its less-exciting fare in January. With a few exceptions, that seems to be the case again in January 2011. Without an Avatar-like holdover from December, it's inevitable that January 2011 will fall short of January 2010's record-setting $1.06 billion gross. Jan. 7The first weekend of January finds Nicolas Cage movie Season of the Witch facing the planned nationwide expansion of Country Strong. Season of the Witch, which was delayed from March 2010, doesn't seem to have much going for it. Medieval-set movies that don't involve Robin Hood rarely make much money, and Mr. Cage's drawing power has been spotty, including relatively soft returns for Kick-Ass ($48.1 million) and The Sorcerer's Apprentice ($63.2 million). Additionally, Season marks distributor Relativity Media's second nationwide release following The Warrior's Way, which was botched so badly that it earned less than $6 million since opening early December. »

Oscar Rankings: Let's Get Technical

29 December 2010 10:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Awards, Cinematical

As 2010 comes to a close, we are also past the first phase of awards season. The critics' groups have (mostly) finalized their choices and we are now heading into "guild territory." Victors from the Golden Globes and Broadcast Film Critics Association are not going to tell us anything we don't already know about who might earn an Oscar nomination -- unless, of course, they award one of the underdogs like Michael Douglas or the couple from 'Blue Valentine.' Nope, it's the guilds that will begin thinning the herd next week, producers first. 8 of their 10 nominees last year were up for Oscar, minus 'Invictus' and 'Star Trek' (replaced by 'A Serious Man' and 'The Blind Side'). The consensus on the eight this year appear to be 'Black Swan,' 'The Fighter,' 'Inception,' 'The King's Speech,' 'The Social Network, »

'Avatar' Not the Biggest Video on Demand Rental in 2010

28 December 2010 2:06 PM, PST | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

The other day we brought you a list of the top ten highest grossing films of 2010, and now we have a list of the most popular video-on-demand titles. This year people were watching movies on-demand more than they ever were before, especially since cable providers (and studios) are making it easier (and more enjoyable) to watch movies at home. Surprisingly, even though it won pretty much every other record over the past 12 months (including highest grossing box office and most pirated film), Avatar was not the most watched video-on-demand film. Comcast has released a list that touts The Blind Side as being the most popular VOD title in 2010, followed by Couples Retreat, The Twilight Saga: New Moon and Hot Tub Time Machine. Avatar may have been hurt by the fact that it did not hit VOD...

This Week On DVD and Blu-ray: December 28, 2010

Not a whole lot to choose from this Tuesday after Christmas as most studios like to get their product on the shelves for gift-giving rather than counting on people spending their gift certificates the days after, but there may be something of interest for a couple of you.

The American I know a lot of people did not like this movie but I found it to be quite good. I wonder if anyone that didn't like this movie could possibly like Somewhere, both are rather quiet and meditative features. It's interesting Focus handled both of them this year. Resident Evil: Afterlife I will need to Netflix this one, but I won't be adding it to the home collection, at least not until I've seen it. I still don't own the third one and have no intention of buying it »

Shocker: Biggest Video On Demand Movie of 2010 was Not 'Avatar'

28 December 2010 5:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Movie News, Cinematical

As you total up your bills for the holidays, wrap your head around this figure: $2.8 billion. That's how much money James Cameron's 'Avatar' has grossed in worldwide box office receipts. It doesn't include receipts for the basic, non-collector's edition on DVD and Blu-ray, released in April, which broke sales records, nor for the recent "Extended Collector's Edition." Nor does it include video on demand sales, which one might assume would also be record-breaking. Yet the film barely placed in the top 10 for 2010 list just announced by Comcast, the largest cable operator in the United States.

Variety notes that 'The Blind Side,' which earned only about 1/3 of what 'Avatar' did in domestic box office, ended up the #1 title on Comcast's "top-performing" list, with 'Couples Retreat,' 'The Twilight Saga: New Moon,' 'Hot Tub Time Machine' and »

Akshay Kumar's Tees Maar Khan, Sofia Coppola's Somewhere Do Well: Box Office

27 December 2010 6:11 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Garrett Hedlund, Shana Feste's Country Strong Little Fockers, Tron: Legacy, Narnia, Yogi Bear, The Fighter Down: Blizzard-Battered Box-Office Actuals Among the "specialty" movies, Bollywood's Tees Maar Khan did relatively well on its first weekend out, collecting $540k at 108 theaters and averaging $4,998 per venue, according to Box Office Mojo. Directed by Farah Khan, Tees Maar Khan stars Akshay Kumar in the title role. At 7 theaters, Sofia Coppola's controversial Venice Film Festival winner Somewhere, which stars Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning, took in $119k, averaging a solid $17,012 per site. Performing more modestly was Sylvain Chomet's The Illusionist, which grossed $38k at 3 venues. Per-theater average of this filmization of an old Jacques Tati screenplay: $12,865. Starring Tron: Legacy's Garrett Hedlund, Academy Award winner Gwyneth Paltrow, and The Blind Side's Tim McGraw, Shana Feste's Country Strong scored a modest $17,300 at two venues. Its per-theater average was a disappointing $8,650. Note: »

Memories and condolences in the wake of R&B performer Teena Marie's death were out in force in Twitter-Wood this morning. Ice-t, Quinton Aaron, Sasha Grey and Tyrese Gibson all noted her importance and expressed their grief in posts, whether they were friends, fans or both.

Hugh Hefner's engagement to 24-year-old Playboy Playmate Crystal Harris also attracted attention today. Patton Oswalt and Seth Green both contributed opinions on that front, while Tinsel Korey shared her favorite scene from "Eclipse." You can find out what that was and see how Zachary Quinto feels about the blizzard he came face to face with after the jump.

Thoughts on… The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards Nominations

22 December 2010 3:18 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Cherokee Summer discusses the contenders for the 68th annual Golden Globe Awards...

The Golden Globes – a legitimately credible award show or just a laughing stock? Probably the latter for me, but it’s been like that for a while – live streaming the Globes just to see all these ridiculously young looking actors and actresses gobsmacked when they take to the stage, thanking their manager, family and friends with a little tear in their eye. And of course, God for making it all happen (well, at least the schmaltzy ‘Hollywood’ of it all is more endearing and a welcome pat-on-the-back-at-least-you-tried than the boredom that is the BAFTAs).

Now that the nominees for the 68th Globes have been announced, what were we expecting? Pretty much exactly what we got in most categories – minus the likes of Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours and the Coen Brothers’ True Grit – but the real ‘Wtf’ moment comes »

2010 In 60 Seconds: The Annotated Guide

21 December 2010 7:30 AM, PST | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

It would be difficult to sum up the year in culture given a few hours of your time and several weeks of preparation, but we here at MTV News like to think that we're able to kick it up several notches at all times. That's why our own Jim Cantiello took it upon himself to sum up the last 12 months in a mere 60 seconds, and if you're willing to give the video below a minute, you'll be super-informed and prepared to move boldly into 2011.

Since that's a lot of information to blow through in a very brief window of time, check out this handy guide for everything you saw (or might have missed) in the video above.

The Fighter Review

20 December 2010 6:01 PM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

The Fighter Directed by: David O. Russell Written by: Scott Silver, Paul Tamasy, Eric Johnson (screenplay), Paul Tamasy, Eric Johnson, Keith Dorrington (story) Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Melissa Leo, and Jack McGee It’s easy to take a film like David O. Russell’s The Fighter for granted around award season. It’s minus the panache of the year’s other heavy hitters, and fills a comfortable ‘sports drama’ niche. O. Russell’s film may very well be among the ten best picture nominations announced next month, but it doesn’t have a shot at the title — which is a shame, because it earns greatness in its own right. The Fighter isn’t the best film of the year, but it features some of the best characters and performances of the year, wrapped in a familiar but accessible underdog story with plenty of fresh hooks. Much attention »

The Fighter review

20 December 2010 12:14 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David O Russell takes on the story of boxer Micky Ward, and comes up with one of the best films of the year. Here's our review of The Fighter...

'Irish' Micky Ward was one of the hardest men in the boxing game during his time in the squared circle. He never backed down from a fight, and what he lacked in speed, quickness, and defense he made up for with an ability to take punishment, a drive to win, and a liver-quivering left hook to the body.

This unique concoction of drive and gluttony for punishment comes, no doubt, from his family life, which is equal parts colorful and hard-luck. This tale, of a man's ability to transcend family problems and rise to great heights in his chosen profession is the centerpiece of David O Russell's star-studded new sports drama, The Fighter.

It's not a new story, by any means. »

Oscars® vs. Screen Actors Guild Awards

19 December 2010 8:56 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Paul Sheehan at GoldDerby

hollywoodnews.com: Just how many of the Screen Actors Guild Awards nominees will go on to contend at the Oscars? The 2100 SAG members who sit on the nominating committee have proven to be remarkably prescient at predicting which performances will find favor with the 1205 voters in the acting branch of the academy.

Last year, a staggering 19 of the 20 SAG nominees also reaped Oscar bids. The only difference of opinion came in the Supporting Actress race: SAG went with Diane Kruger (“Inglorious Basterds”) while Oscar nominators were more impressed by late-entry Maggie Gyllenhaal (“Crazy Heart”). All four of the SAG champs — leads Jeff Bridges (“Crazy Heart”) and Sandra Bullock (“The Blind Side”) and supporting players Mo’Nique (“Precious”) and Christoph Waltz (“Inglorious Basterds”) — also prevailed at the Oscars.

Wimps?

19 December 2010 6:37 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Michael C here trying to piece together some conclusions from this first wave of precursors.

One thing we can say for certain. With all the support materializing for Black Swan this past week the message is unequivocal: no discussion of the year’s best work will be complete without Aronofsky’s dance phantasmagoria in the mix. Yet Swan’s place in the lineup isn't the sure thing it should be. Due to the film’s extreme nature it is widely assumed that for every one Academy member who has the stomach for it, there will be ten others who are fleeing the screening with their hands over their ears, humming the score from Driving Miss Daisy to blot out the horrible sounds coming from the screen.

Are Oscar voters wimps?

One could be forgiven for getting that impression reading the conventional wisdom bandied back and forth about films like 127 Hours or Black Swan. »

Lily Collins in The Mortal Instruments Movie

18 December 2010 6:51 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Lovely Lily Collins, girl probably best known from The Blind Side will take the lead in an upcoming Screen Gems’ adaptation of the young adult book series The Mortal Instruments.

The film will be directed by Scott Charles Stewart who recently worked with Collins on The Priest, so we have no doubt that this will be another perfect collaboration on a story that goes like this:

“When Clary Fray witnesses three tattoo-covered teenagers murder another teen, she is unable to prove the crime because the victim disappears right in front of her eyes, and no one else can see the killers.

She learns that the teens are Shadowhunters (humans who hunt and kill demons), and Clary, a mundie, should not be able to see them either. Shortly after this discovery, her mother, Jocelyn, an erstwhile Shadowhunter, is kidnapped.

Jocelyn is the only person who knows the whereabouts of The Mortal Cup, »
