19 Interesting Facts About the Movie Casino

18 April 2017 4:30 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

When you make a film as unbelievably good as Goodfellas, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with repackaging it, moving it out to Vegas, and making it about running a Casino.   That’s essentially what Martin Scorsese’s movie Casino did.   Only in this case he removed Ray Liotta and Paul Sorvino and replaced them with the likes of Sharon Stone and James Woods.   Is the movie the same as Gooodfellas?  Definitely not.  But it reminds me of how David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook) keeps recycling his favorite actors into movies.   Oddly enough, Robert De Niro is in Russell’s films as well. While

Watch Robert De Niro as Bernie Madoff in 'The Wizard of Lies' Trailer

14 April 2017 6:44 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

How long has it been since Robert De Niro gave a really great performance? Maybe since his Oscar-nominated supporting turn five years ago in Silver Linings Playbook, right? But how long since his last truly great lead performance? It's been a while, which is why we're very excited about seeing him giving it all in the new trailer for HBO's The Wizard of Lies.  In the made-for-cable feature, De Niro portrays Bernie Madoff, the notorious investment fraudster behind maybe the largest Ponzi scheme of all time. The actor has transformed himself a bit for the role, which makes the part reminiscent of his physical feat for Raging Bull. Perhaps this performance won't compare, and it won't even be qualified for an Oscar, but it does seem like it...

After a successful first weekend at the box office, The Boss Baby, an animated comedy from DreamWorks Animation, had no trouble repeating at the box office.

Can Smurfs Knock Boss Baby Off the Top of the Box Office?

4 April 2017 10:03 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Traditionally, April has never been one of the biggest months to open a movie, but that all changed a few years ago when the Fast & Furious franchise started finding success in the spring months. The next installment in that high-octane franchise, The Fate of the Furious, doesn't hit theaters until April 14, but this weekend, moviegoers will have three new films arriving in wide release, Sony's animated adventure Smurfs: The Lost Village, Warner Bros.' comedy remake Going In Style and PureFlix's The Case For Christ. None of these will (probably) be able to stop last weekend's winner, The Boss Baby, which will likely repeat atop the box office with $25.2 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that Smurfs: The Lost Village, which marks the franchise's return to fully animated movies, instead of live-action/CGI hybrids, is expected to open in roughly 3,400 theaters, with Going in Style estimated to open in 3,000 theaters, while »

Kong: Skull Island opens to $142.6 million worldwide

12 March 2017 11:56 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

King Kong returned to the big screen this weekend as Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures unleashed Kong: Skull Island, the second film in their shared ‘MonsterVerse’, and the film has amassed a healthy opening, pulling in $142.6 million worldwide.

The Jordan Vogt-Roberts-directed monster epic grossed $61 million domestically to knock Logan into second place in the chart, with a further $81.6 million from international markets. Initial tracking had pegged the film at $135 million.

While Kong: Skull Island is certainly off to a strong start, it will face some very stiff competition next weekend as Disney’s Beauty and the Beast hits cinemas; given that it boasts a whopping $185 million production budget, along with a reported $136 million in advertising costs, Legendary and Warner Bros. will be hoping that strong reviews and word of mouth help push the film beyond the $529.1 million haul of Godzilla back in 2014.
