Weekend Box Office – Tron Legacy Races to the Top with $43.6 Million; How Do You Know Races to Obscurity

19 December 2010 10:13 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Five, count ‘em, five releases went wide this weekend, including the much anticipated Tron Legacy from Disney.  The 3D spectacle ran circles around the competition - bringing in an estimated $43.6 million in first place, or 62% more than Yogi Bear managed in second.  Meanwhile, How Do You Know could not even live up to the very modest expectations of Sony Pictures, placing eighth for the weekend with just $7.6 million. Title Weekend Total 1 Tron Legacy $43,600,000 $43.6 2 Yogi Bear $16,700,000 $16.7 3 Narnia 3 $12,400,000 $42.7 4 The Fighter $12,200,000 $12.6 5 The Tourist $8,700,000 $29.5 6 Tangled $8,670,000 $127.8 7 Black Swan $8,300,000 $15.7 8 How Do You Know $7,600,000 $7.6 9 Harry Potter 7A $4,645,000 $265.5 10 Unstoppable $1,800,000 $77.3 Even with three new releases and two Oscar-bait expansions, the only movie making big waves on the weekend before Christmas is Tron Legacy.  Disney put a lot of money and effort into promoting the re-launch of its 1982 fanboy fave… and that’s apart from the film’s estimated $150 million budget.  So, how do things stand for Tron after its first weekend? »

Fantastic new UK quad for The Eagle, starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell

14 December 2010 3:38 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We have just received the brand new UK quad poster for The Eagle, the brand new movie from Kevin MzcDonald (Touching The Void, The Last King Of Scotland).

The film is a  Roman epic adventure, based on the classic novel of the same name, set in the dangerous world of second-century Britain.

In 140 Ad, twenty years after the unexplained disappearance of the entire Ninth Legion in the mountains of Scotland, young centurion Marcus Aquila (played by Channing Tatum of “G.I.  Joe: The Rise of Cobra” and “Dear John”) arrives from Rome to solve the mystery and restore the reputation of his father, the commander of the Ninth. Accompanied only by his British slave Esca (Jamie Bell of “Defiance” and “Jumper”), Marcus sets out across Hadrian’s Wall into the uncharted highlands of Caledonia – to confront its savage tribes, make peace with his father’s memory, and retrieve the lost legion’s golden emblem, »

Kato-Centric International Poster for The Green Hornet

27 November 2010 5:35 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

From Taiwan comes a slick, colorful new theatrical poster for director Michel Gondry's The Green Hornet adaptation that has the title hero (Seth Rogen) taking a back seat to his sidekick, Kato (Jay Chou), who is featured in the center of the image.

Is this merely a matter of Sony Pictures featuring an Asian actor on a poster for a movie being marketed in Asia? That's not an uncommon practice, as evidenced by Paramount's Korean movie poster for G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, which featured an unmasked Storm Shadow so that it could feature Korean star Byung-hun Lee.

It's more likely that Kato's central position is reflective of the elevated status of the character in Asia, where The Green Hornet TV show was commonly referred to as "The Kato Show" in Hong Kong during the '60s because of the popularity of Bruce Lee as Kato. It could »

'Halo' Adaptation: Should it be a Movie or a TV Series?

24 November 2010 2:15 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Filed under: Movie News, Sci-Fi, Cinematical

The battle to get a 'Halo' movie has been a long struggle filled with big plans and dashed hopes. We've seen the likes of Guillermo Del Toro, Peter Jackson and Neill Blomkamp attached to direct, Denzel Washington in talks to star and scripts arise from Alex Garland ('28 Days Later') and Stuart Beattie ('G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra'). Time and time again, though, nothing comes of it. What's keeping one of the more epic and popular video game franchises from getting the Hollywood adaptation treatment? Nothing so dramatic, actually: disputes over contracts, budgetary concerns, licensing disagreements and so on and so forth.

So here we are, nearly a decade after the first Halo game arrived on the Xbox, shook up the whole gaming industry and went on to produce more than a few record breaking sequels. 'Resident Evil' got a few movies. »

Justin Bieber At The AMAs, Tsa Screenings And 'Mad Men' In Today's Twitter-Wood

22 November 2010 2:45 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

American Music Awards tweets consumed most of the Twitter-Wood feed Sunday night, with Justin Bieber pulling in the most celebrity endorsements by far. Personally, however, I'd like to endorse Nathan Fillion's perspective on the evening, as he remained focused on what really matters.

Airports, however, weren't nearly as luxurious as the AMAs this weekend, and if you were flying you were probably worried about whether the Tsa was going to scan you or give you a pat-down. Samm Levine proposed a trick to beating the system, while Judd Apatow pondered parenting decisions. Find out if you agree with either of them after the jump, right beneath John Hodgman's expectations for "Mad Men" Season 5.

Cholera In Haiti, 'Skyline' And 'Scream' In Today's Twitter-Wood

15 November 2010 1:53 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Now that a cholera epidemic has reached Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince, and the death toll is climbing toward 1,000, the worsening situation has become a recurring topic of conversation in our Twitter feed. Danny DeVito was searching around for something to do to help yesterday, while Olivia Wilde shared a picture from a Haitian pediatric hospital where she's been hanging out.

In movie-related posts, "Skyline" prompted a few micro-reviews over the weekend. Sasha Grey broke her spectrum of reactions down into a single tweet and may have managed to break a Twitter-Wood record for most sentences in a single post. Check it out after the jump and see if you share her sentiments. Even if you don't, you'll see what Eli Roth received for participating in a "Scream" documentary and what Marlon Wayans recommends for the Minnesota Vikings.

Q&A - Faster's Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje on Pranks, Oz, and the Controversial Lost Finale

14 November 2010 9:01 PM, PST | AMC News Interviews | See recent AMC News Interviews news »

To Oz fans, he's Simon Adebisi. To Lost fans, he's Mr. Eko. And to any poor soul who sat through G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, he's Heavy Duty. Now Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje stares down Dwayne Johnson in the vengeance thriller Faster. He slowed down just long enough to talk with Film Critic about the movie, his cherished work on cable television, and that Lost finale everyone complained about. Q: I hear Dwayne Johnson is supposed to be a very funny guy in person. A: He's actually a bit of a prankster. But you know what? We had very dramatic scenes and intense encounters, so there wasn't room for that in the scene. But certainly in the couple of hours that dwindled in between, chairs were being pulled from underneath people before they sat down and things like that. He's a kid at heart but a really great pro.

Channing Tatum to Join 21 Jump Street?

10 November 2010 8:45 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Channing Tatum (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Dear John) could become the first official cast member to join Jonah Hill in the adaptation of 21 Jump Street that Hill is also producing and co-writing with screenwriter Michael Bacall.

Deadline reports that Tatum will soon be "in negotiations" to join Hill in a story that will again see youthful-looking police officers infiltrate high schools to catch drug dealers. While not usually know for his comedic prowess, Tatum's role in director Ron Howard's upcoming comedy The Dilemma reportedly put the actor up for the part.

Production on 21 Jump Street is set to begin next spring. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord were confirmed by Hill to be directing the project in February. Emma Stone was rumored to be up for a role in the movie in September, though her casting is not confirmed. Hill has »

Channing Tatum Ready To Jump At Role In Jonah Hill's '21 Jump Street'

10 November 2010 8:25 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Channing Tatum battled evil with action-figure-inspired technology in "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra," but he may be scaling things down a bit to help out America's youth with Jonah Hill. Tatum reportedly wants in and is set to begin negotiations for the Hill-written big-screen adaptation of the '80s cop show that launched Johnny Depp's career, "21 Jump Street." While the film has a part for Johnny Depp in a "really funny cameo" if he wants it, he's far too old to play the lead, seeing as the cops in "Jump Street" go undercover as high-school students to root out crime.

Enter Tatum, who is now the front runner for the movie's lead role, according to Deadline. The studio thought Tatum and Hill made a good on-screen pair, and if all goes as planned production should begin next spring with "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller overseeing things. »

Lil Wayne was a hot topic for conversation on and off of Twitter today now that he's out of lock-up. Donald Glover hopes someone was able to get a picture, while Marlon Wayans sounded skeptical, and David Faustino expects big things for Weezy tonight at his post-prison release party.

Halloween costume pictures have still be showing up as well, and you can find Billy Burke and Jason Mewes sharing what they wore after the jump.

Stephen Sommers Now Confirmed to Direct 'Odd Thomas' Movie

4 November 2010 11:04 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Back in September we heard that director Stephen Sommers (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) might be lining up an adaptation of Dean Koontz's supernatural novel Odd Thomas. Now ScreenDaily (via ComingSoon) has confirmed that Sommers is indeed attached to an adaptation of the story that follows the titular Odd Thomas (who narrates the books almost like a film noir) who lacks ambition working as a fry cook in California but has the gift of seeing and conversing with ghosts. He's notlooking to change the world, but he does use his talents to help out the local police chief in solving brutal crimes. Read what Sommers has to say about the project below! Sommers remarked, ""As soon as I read the book I felt compelled to turn it into a movie. It's a fantastic love affair between these two wonderful characters. The story combines action with heart, laughs and scares. »

Screen Daily has confirmed that Stephen Sommers ( G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra , "The Mummy" movies) is attached to direct an adaptation of Dean Koontz's "Odd Thomas." "As soon as I read the book I felt compelled to turn it into a movie," Sommers said. "It's a fantastic love affair between these two wonderful characters.
