'Jurassic' and 'Inside' Adjust 'Ted''s Weekend

24 June 2015 8:23 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

In what is somewhat of a surprise Universal reports that Ted 2 had a $13.2M Friday which puts it on pace for a $34.1M weekend. That's quite a bit lower than tracking, pundits and conventional wisdom pegged the Seth MacFarlane sequel to take, with most citing $50M as the guesstimate. That is even slightly under the $54M the original Ted rang up on its June 29 - July 1 weekend three years ago, and Ted 2 is in 203 more theaters than Ted (3,442 vs. 3,239), so the low-30s tally is unexpected.Consequently the number one spot is open for either Universal's Jurassic World, in its third week, or Disney's Inside Out, in its second, for the top spot. Inside Out had the better Friday, but just barely, making $14.9M compared to Jurassic World's $14.7M. But, as it proved last weekend, Saturday and Sunday belong to the dinosaurs. Still playing in 4,198 North American theaters, »

'Jurassic' Rex Records

21 June 2015 8:01 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Universal has confirmed that not only has Jurassic World retained its #1 position at the weekend box office it now holds the top spot for 2nd weekend grosses with $106.6M, beating former record holder Marvel's The Avengers and its $103.1M in 2012. Jurassic World will also perform the stunning feat of crossing $1B at the worldwide box office today after just 13 days, beating the previous record holder, Universal's Furious 7, and its record of 17 days just two months ago.With velociraptor rapacity World has also overtaken several other records, reaching $400M in domestic box office, passing the milestone in only 10 days, and overrunning the $500 million mark internationally on Saturday, marking the quickest climb to that milestone, in only 11 days. Consequently, the team at Universal Pictures can lay claim to being the studio to have reached $1B at the domestic box office, $2B at the international box office; and $3B at the worldwide »

'Jurassic' Retains #1, 'Inside Out' Joyful

20 June 2015 9:38 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Jurassic World retained its #1 position at the weekend box office with a less-than-expected -51% decline for a $102M take. Inside Out outperformed even the most optimistic of estimates and banked $91M, making it Pixar's 2nd largest opening weekend, behind Toy Story 3, which made $110.3M in 2010. What is startling about Inside Out's weekend is that it is the highest opening weekend ever for an original property (that is to say one that is not a sequel or a non-sourced work), passing Avatar, which made $77M on its December 18-20, 2009 bow. To be fair, however, James Cameron's sci-fi adventure, took in a higher per-screen average, $23,313 in 3,452 screens, on almost 500 fewer screens (Inside Out's PSA was $23,061 per, in 3,946 venues). Internationally Inside Out made $41M (for a $132M worlwide cume) though it has a staggered overseas rollout, now showing in Australia, Brazil, France, Mexico, and Russia (among 24 other markets), representing just 42% of the global footprint. »

‘Die Hard: Year One’ Volume 2 is a “Yippee”

27 May 2015 1:22 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Die Hard: Year One #5-8

Written by Howard Chaykin

Art by Gabriel Andrade

Published by Boom! Studios.

In the first four issues of Die Hard: Year One, readers were let down by a plot overstuffed with characters and lacking any true resemblance of the tone of the original movies.  This second volume, collecting issues 5-8, suffers a similar fate in that it fails to ignite any passion in the reader, instead going through the motions and producing an average comic book.

Our protagonist, John McClane, is now a detective experiencing his first year on the job.  The plot involves two events: the first being a hostage situation and the second, a citywide blackout, being used to cover multiple examples of looting.  Meanwhil, John meets Holly, his future wife.

Here McClane closer resembles the character fans know and love from the film series, with more subtle character moments fleshing out the action hero. »

‘Die Hard: Year One’ Volume 1 has wasted potential

19 May 2015 6:52 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Die Hard: Year One #1-4 Written by Howard Chaykin Art by Stephen Thompson Colors by Matthew Wilson Published by Boom! Studios Die Hard: Year One is an eight issue miniseries published by Boom! Studios in 2009-2010.  Made up of two volumes of four issues each, the series begins with John McClane as a rookie beat cop learning the ropes and following orders from his superiors. Volume 1 finds McClane working the beat during the Bicentennial Celebration in 1976 New York.  Partnered with a complaining, lacklustre overweight superior, McClane comes up against a plot involving a boat hijacking, a small group of terrorists, and corrupt cops.  By story’s end, John has earned his badge, his reputation of being in the ‘wrong place at the wrong time’, and been promoted to Detective leading into volume 2 and eventually the movie continuity. The idea of prequels is nothing new and have been a »

Was DC Comics’ New 52 Successful?

17 May 2015 6:43 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Welcome to the new column “Comics Issues” where two Sound on Sight writers debate a important or controversial comics industry topic. First up, we discuss whether the DC New 52 was a successful initiative or not. Feel free to post  your opinion in the comments below.

Pro: “The DC Comics New 52 was successful.”

Overall, I think the New 52 was a successful initiative for DC Comics. The new #1’s attracted a lot of new readers (including yours truly) and made titles like Action Comics and Batman, which seemed inaccessible with issue numbers in the three digits. Speaking of Batman, the New 52 has been a time of creative renaissance for the character and his family of titles from Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s soon to be legendary run on the title to artistically interesting books like Gotham Academy and Grayson. Other highlights of the New 52, include Grant Morrison’s metafictional event comic »

Exclusive: Geoff Johns & Gary Frank talk Batman: Earth One, Vol. 2 and Tease Future Volumes

15 May 2015 2:46 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

After successfully reinventing the Dark Knight in Batman: Earth One, Volume 1, fans have been eagerly awaiting the next installment, and Geoff Johns and Gary Frank do not disappoint. Volume 2, which is now available, expands their new Batman mythology and has many twists and turns in store for long time fans, all while keeping their Batman grounded in reality. I recently had a chance to catch up with the creative duo to find out more about the new design of The Riddler, drawing a more expressive Batman, and they also teased future volumes:

I really like the fact that this Bruce Wayne / Batman feels very grounded in reality. Can you talk about the visual changes that helped set your Batman apart from other incarnations we've seen?

Gary Frank: With Batman, it's important to remember that we're dealing with a man who's just starting out. This is a man who's »

State of Decay Year One Survival Edition launch trailer

27 April 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

I was a huge fan of State of Decay, still am actually. I didn’t go a bundle on the ‘Breakdown‘ Dlc but loved the ‘Lifeline’ Dlc as I felt it expanded the State of Decay universe (even though the difficulty seemed too high).

State of Decay for the Xbox One is out today and apart from it being remastered in 1080p and including the two Dlc packs mentioned above it will also include new weapons, vehicles, gameplay styles and achievements.

What’s even better is that previous owners of the game on the 360 will get a 33% discount, an exclusive character And the Preppers Pack which consists of a special vehicle and weapons. Thanks Undead Labs.

Video Game Review – State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition

23 April 2015 12:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ben Rayner reviews State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition…

When State of Decay landed on the Xbox 360 all those moons ago, it really set the bar for just how much scope there could be for an Indie title. The world was huge and the story could go on for as long as you wanted it to, you were the story, Every new stranger you met along the way was another life line, another part of your adventure to tell through the eyes and experiences of another. Sure, there were slight problems here and there. It wasn’t the most beautiful looking game out there and with quite the slew of menus it could be fussy at times. The controls weren’t perfect either; handling combat well while climbing and other more nuanced movements leaving a lot to be desired but at its heart, it was the perfect open world zombie game. »

State Of Decay: Year One Survival Edition Review

22 April 2015 6:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Zombies took pop culture by storm and have never looked back.

The above is especially true of the gaming industry over the last several years or more, because developers have done nothing to hide their fascination with the undead. This craze has resulted in some fantastic experiences, as well as some not so great ones. And, from that varied pile, one title that has stood out from the others has been Undead Labs’ State of Decay, which is headed to both PC and Microsoft’s Xbox One in a remastered/definitive package, dubbed State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition.

When it first debuted on the Xbox 360 back in 2013 (prior to making an appearance on PC), State of Decay received a lot of attention despite not being a home run in critics’ collective eyes. Sure, it scored pretty well overall, but the general consensus was that it was a work-in-progress. »

Amy Pascal’s Hits & Misses at the Box Office

6 February 2015 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The news of the end of Amy Pascal’s tenure as head of Sony Pictures Entertainment begs an examination of the studio’s performance under her leadership.

Pascal, who will remain at Sony in a new role as a producer, has long been known around town for her keen eye for winning projects. Though her reputation has suffered recently as a result of North Korea’s infamous hacking attack on the studio, which revealed a few unseemly email exchanges in which Pascal and other execs criticized the attitudes of A-listers and made racially tinged jokes at the expense of President Obama, Pascal steered the studio through her share of triumphs.

Any career as long as Pascal’s is bound to have its peaks and valleys. From the highest heights (“Skyfall,” “Spider-Man 2”) to the lowest lows (“Jack and Jill,” “Sparkle”), Pascal led Sony through it all. Here’s a look »

‘Ms. Marvel’ #11 wraps up year one

4 February 2015 4:06 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Ms. Marvel #11

Written by G. Willow Wilson

Art by Adrian Alphona

Colorist by Ian Herring

Published by Marvel Comics

This week G. Willow Wilson concludes her inaugural arc on the excellent Ms. Marvel. For the last year, Kamala Khan has been slowly unraveling the manic plot of the Thinker, a humanoid parakeet with a massive intellect and equally large ego. These latest issues especially have launched Ms. Marvel from being a diverse yet small curiosity into a prideful rallying point for millennial angst as the Thinker’s true goal is to use young people as a cheap source of energy. It’s now up to Kamala Khan and her improvised team of Jersey City kids to stop the Thinker once and for all.

This issue wastes no time as it jumps right into the story. This finale is a well suited ending to this first arc. It has Kamala finally emerging as a hero proper, »

Sundance 2015: Goofy Religious Antics in Jared Hess' 'Don Verdean'

30 January 2015 6:50 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There are a growing number of recent films that have tried to make a fun joke out of religion, which can sometimes be a sensitive subject (at least in this country). Not many of them are that good, as sometimes they get too dumb with the humor (e.g. Year One), but sometimes they strike the right chord, touching upon both the importance of and hilarity of modern religion. Don Verdean is the latest film from Jared Hess & Jerusha Hess, the husband/wife filmmaker team that brought us Napoleon Dynamite and Gentlemen Broncos previously. Don Verdean is the name of religious artifacts collector who gets into some deep shit. In Don Verdean, Sam Rockwell dons a beard and plays Don, a religious collector who made a name for himself years ago but is well past his prime now. Working with his assistant Carol, played by Amy Ryan, he decides to »

10 Surprising Things Sixties Batman Shares With The Dark Knight

29 January 2015 12:31 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Do you know what Christopher Nolan’s first exposure to Batman was? It wasn’t Frank Miller’s grim ‘n’ gritty comic books The Dark Knight Returns or Year One, the latter of which was drawn on heavily by the director. It wasn’t Grant Morrison and Dave McKean’s Arkham Asylum, the first truly deep psychological analysis of the character and his enemies. Not the gold standard Batman: The Animated Series.

“I think like a lot of people my age, my first memories of Batman were from the television series with Adam West,” he says. Yes, the sixties Batman, with all of its high camp, go-go dancing, and sound effects popping up on screen. So pretty much the polar opposite of Nolan’s grounded, realistic take on the character in his Dark Knight trilogy. Right.

Well, don’t be so sure. “Still, I think that for something »
