Holiday Sequels Continue to Dominate on Friday

31 December 2011 10:06 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

For the third Friday in a row, three sequels claimed the Top Three spots at the box office. Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol extended its impressive run with another first place finish, while Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked continued to draw large holiday crowds. The big loser on Friday actually looks to be Steven Spielberg, with his War Horse and The Adventures of Tintin finishing sixth and seventh, respectively.The fourth Mission: Impossible movie added an estimated $10.7 million on Friday for a 15-day total of $113.6 million. Paramount is estimating a four-day weekend of $40 million, which means the movie will pass Mission: Impossible III's $134 million total by Monday. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows earned an estimated $7.65 million, which should translate to around $27 million for the Friday-Monday holiday weekend. It's still the top-grossing December 2011 release with $117.7 million, though that honor will almost certainly »

Friday Box Office – Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol Stays Ahead of Holiday Competition

31 December 2011 9:23 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With three days before Hollywood’s jam-packed holiday season comes to a close, and with no major new studio releases, last week’s holdovers got a chance to stretch their legs on Friday.  After dominating the charts since it went wide ten days ago, Paramount’s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol was yesterday’s winner with an estimated $10.7 million. This season’s all-purpose hit passed the $100 million mark on Thursday and is projected to take in another $35 million by the end of the four-day weekend.  Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows also hit $100 million (on Wednesday). Although the WB sequel was pushed into third by Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked on Wednesday and Thursday, Sherlock 2 should finish the holiday frame back in second place with $30 million to Alvin 3’s $25. As expected, each of the top five films saw a significant spike in earnings over last Friday; with the most impressive gain »

Friday Box-Office: 'Mission 4' #1, 'War Horse' Limps into Sixth and 'Iron Lady' Opens Nicely

31 December 2011 8:47 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

By Monday, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol will have surpassed Mission: Impossible III's $134 million domestic take. Ghost Protocol brought in $10.7 million on Friday and should land just shy of $30 million for the three-day and end up with something around $40 million for the four-day holiday weekend. It's also closing in quickly on the third film's $397 million worldwide take as it currently sits at $304 million. How will the success of this film be judged as it eyes the $180 million the first film brought in in 1996 ($325m adjusted for inlfation) and the $215 million the second film brought in in 2000 ($318m adjusted for inflation)? It's obviously a money earner, but it is the kind of success that will have Paramount rushing to get a fourth film in the making or will we be looking at four years or more before Jeremy Renner takes over for Ethan Hunt? In second, Sherlock Holmes: Game »

Julian Roman's Top 10 Best Movies of 2011

30 December 2011 5:27 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Cinema had a pretty good year in 2011. The summer saw an onslaught of costumed hero flicks, which to my great surprise were all pretty good. Hollywood has turned off the cheese factor on comic adaptations, lining up great directors and better actors. The biggest surprise of 2011 was the remarkable success of The Artist, a charming silent film by French director Michael Hazanavicius. Since its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, it has been a critical and awards favorite. The Artist should be a lock to win the Best Film Oscar.

My favorite film of 2011 is Gavin O'Connor's Warrior. I had no idea what to expect when I saw this movie in September and was completely blown away. A brutal fighting film, the fisticuffs pale in comparison to the gripping family drama. Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton play two brothers, long separated by the childhood abuse of their father - Nick Nolte, »

Will Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson be good luck charms for 'Tintin' at Oscars?

30 December 2011 9:18 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"The Adventures of Tintin" is all but certain to be nominated for Best Animated Feature at the Oscars. And with two-time directing champ Steven Spielberg helming this performance capture rendering of Herge's boy detective, it is one of the frontrunners to win. However, to prevail, it will have to overcome a strong challenge from "Rango," which leads among our Experts, Editors and Users.  In the 10-year history of the category, seven of the winners were the biggest earners among the nominees while two of the other three made at least $200 million; only "Spirited Away" managed to win the gold without making much green. "Tintin" is likely to gross far less than most of the other nominees.  While "Tintin" has taken in more than $225 million around the world in the last six weeks, it has earned only $36 million since opening in the Us and Canada last week. As the Christmas holidays can be a go. »

Film Feature: The 10 Worst Films of 2011

29 December 2011 4:16 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – With 2012 staring us in the face like a bad movie concept (oops), it’s time to go over the worst films of 2011, if only to purge the refuse from our souls. If you think film critiquing is martinis with F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald – or the plot to “Midnight in Paris” – then strap in and read on.

If we were to add up the percentages of the 2011 film release year, the larger number of star ratings would fall in the middle to horrible category of the please-please-me range, but that is the nature of populist movie-making. The film business is about demographics and butts-in-the-seats, and what’s on screen – as long as it has a vampire in it – has become irrelevant. Can we all handle that truth? Thank goodness for awards season.

But I digress. Just missing the 10th spot was “Country Strong,” “Arthur,” “Hop,” “Your Highness,” “Take Me Home Tonight” and “The Smurfs. »

Tintinology after Spielberg

29 December 2011 12:09 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

"It's no fun wearing my Tintin shirt now that the masses know who he is." The drawing over that caption is superfluous. Still, the cartoon in this week's New Yorker nicely sums up the shift in Tintin's status in the Us since the release of Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin — his face has migrated from imported T-shirts to dog food ads.

As with another 3D spectacle currently in theaters, Pina, we've already had two roundups on Spielberg's Tintin, the first in October, an entry that kicked off with initial reactions to the film's premiere and eventually segued into more considered reviews in the British and European press, and the second in November, an entry gathering takes from the Tintinologists and reviews from AFI Fest. So I'll try to keep it brief in this third go-round, focusing more on Hergé than Spielberg, beginning with Charles McGrath's introduction in the video embedded above. »

The Top 10 Directorial Debuts of 2011

29 December 2011 11:30 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There are few things more exciting in cinema than witnessing the birth of a new talent. We’ve covered the breakthrough performances of the year and now it is time to get behind the camera. Every one of our favorite directorial debuts bowed at film festivals, and while some sadly don’t even have distribution or release plans yet, these are 10 talents to keep a keen eye on in the coming years. Check out our countdown below and let us know your favorites.

10. Magic Valley (Jaffe Zinn)

What a shame that this never found distribution. Jaffe Zinn’s first outing as a director is a delicate, moody anti-mystery that takes conventions of the “murdered teen” story and spins them on their head. Thanks to quiet language and contemplative direction, this ranks as one of the best independent films I saw in 2011. – Nick Newman

9. Beyond the Black Rainbow (Panos Cosmatos)

Kristen Stewart Is A 'Fantastic' Snow White, Says Nick Frost

29 December 2011 6:55 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

After the release of an impressive first trailer, expectations for "Snow White and the Huntsman" shot sky high. All of the sudden, a film that people knew almost nothing about aside from its star-studded cast led by Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth, became one of the most anticipated movies of 2012.

But the question lingers for many fans: can Kristen Stewart carry a film that isn't "Twilight"? She didn't speak a word in the trailer, which depended largely on a perfectly evil Charlize Theron to sell the film, and potential Twi-hard backlash could sink "Swath" before it even hits theaters.

One of Snow White's trusted dwarves, Nick Frost, assured MTV News that Stewart does more than enough to prove herself.

"It was our last day on Friday, and she has kind of a big rabble rousing speech, and she's great. She's fun on set. She's a fantastic actress," said Frost while promoting "The Adventures of Tintin. »

Video: Peter Jackson & Steven Spielberg On Working Together for The Adventures Of Tintin

29 December 2011 | CineMovie | See recent CineMovie news »

Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg teamed up for the new film The Adventures Of Tintin. The two Hollywood heavy-hitters talked about their collaboration on the animated motion capture adventure film earlier this year at Comic Con in San Diego.

Watch the video below.

Last summer, the film's director Steven Spielberg surprised fans in Hall H when he introduced his producing partner Peter Jackson who wasn't originally scheduled for an in-person appearance at the 2011 convention. Together at a panel discussion for The Adventures Of Tintin, the two filmmakers talked about their experience working on their first animated film using motion capture.

Based Herge's comic book series, The Adventures Of Tintin stars Jamie Bell as TinTin, Andy Serkis, Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Cary Elwes. Jackson and Spielberg aren't the only directors

hollywoodnews.com: You hear this complaint almost every year: “This was a terrible year for film.” It’s often made by moviegoers who didn’t go out of their way to find unconventional, challenging (and frequently rewarding) cinema.

A simple scan of the films we’ve included in our annual Top 10 list – as well as the 10 follow up titles – will tell you that there were plenty of films worth celebrating in 2011 … and there will be even more coming next year.

The Best Movie Animals of 2011, Or: Hey Look! Cute Animal Pictures!

28 December 2011 10:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] Maybe it's just because I got a cat this year -- the first living, breathing creature I've owned since I failed to keep a hamster alive circa 1995 -- but I couldn't help noticing that the films of 2011 featured some damn great animals. Some were the stars of their films, like Rango (Johnny Depp) in Rango, while others played second fiddle to less interesting, or at least less adorable, human stars, like Rosie (Tai) in Water for Elephants, but all deserve special mention in my book. And yeah, okay, the fact that they also serve as a convenient excuse to post cute animal photos during a slow news week happens to a nice little bonus as well. Read on after the jump. [2] Honorable Mention: Beaver (Mel Gibson), The Beaver -- Technically, the beaver in The Beaver wasn't actually an animal at all, but a ratty puppet controlled by sad-sack exec Walter (Mel Gibson).

The Top 10 Openings of 2011

28 December 2011 8:17 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The first few moments of a film can be precious. Landing an ending is vital, but a great initial hook can set that perfect tone to invite us into the story. We’ve had some excellent openings this year and have rounded them up below, with some providing a pleasant montage to ease us in, while others can haunt or foreshadow what is to come. Check out our top ten and let us know your favorites. You can also see our Top 10 Endings of 2011 for the other side of things.

10. Midnight in Paris (Woody Allen)

Much like how the film’s protagonist dabbles in life in the past, so does Woody Allen, harkening back to his visual love letter to New York in Manhattan and bringing it to Paris. From the shots of the urban landscape in inclement weather (New York in snow, Paris in rain) to trains slowly gliding by major works of architecture, »

A Festive Week in Spandex - The Dark Knight Rises trailer talk, Joss Whedon on The Avengers... in 3D, David Fincher’s Spider-Man and more…

28 December 2011 4:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Our weekly round-up of the big news stories from the world of movie superheroes…

Warner Bros. gave Batman fans an early Christmas present this past Monday with the online release of the second theatrical trailer for The Dark Knight Rises and – with anticipation for Christopher Nolan’s Gotham swansong reaching fever pitch - it quickly went on to shatter the iTunes record previously held by Marvel’s The Avengers as it amassed a whopping 12.5m views in just 24 hours. The trailer delivered on pretty much every level, giving us a tantalising glimpse at what appears to be some epic action sequences, along with a look at the majority of the cast in action, including Christian Bale (Bruce Wayne / Batman), Tom Hardy (Bane), Gary Oldman (Commissioner Gordon), Michael Caine (Alfred), Marion Cotillard (Miranda Tate) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (John Blake), along with a Batman Returns-style introduction to Anne Hathaway’s Selina Kyle. »

When Can I Watch 'War Horse' With My Kids?

27 December 2011 8:44 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

    Steven Spielberg fans are enjoying an embarrassment of riches at the movie theater these days.    The Oscar winner unleashed his preposterously entertaining mo-cap thrill ride The Adventures of Tintin on Dec. 21, only to follow it up with a Christmas Day release of the director’s touching, devastating yet ultimately uplifting War Horse. Those who track the Oscar races think both have a very good shot at competing at next year’s Academy Awards, with the latter considered to be a frontrunner in the Best Picture race by more than a handful of pundits.    Audiences certainly are responding to War Horse in kind. Spielberg’s adaptation of Nick Stafford’s Tony-winning stage play shot out of the gate with an estimated...
