Josh Gad Climbs Aboard Murder On The Orient Express Remake

21 October 2016 7:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Add Josh Gad to the list of potential suspects aboard Kenneth Branagh’s Murder On The Orient Express remake.

Gad, who is coming off a string of light-hearted comedies thanks to Pixels and The Angry Birds Movie, has agreed to terms to play Hector MacQueen in Fox’s pulse-pounding thriller, a “nervous, skittish man who drinks too much.” He’s said to have a flair for languages, and works under Johnny Depp’s American businessman and tycoon Mr. Ratchett as an assistant/translator.

Kenneth Branagh, who will also head up the investigation as detective Hercule Poirot, has been attached to this new take on Agatha Christie’s classic for some time, and though things looked to have taken a turn for the worse after Angelina Jolie disembarked, the remake has bounced back remarkably well.

Completing the Dark Shadows reunion, Michelle Pfeiffer joins Depp and now Gad as Mrs. Hubbard, a »

Chloe Moretz joins ‘Suspiria’ remake

4 October 2016 7:29 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Chloe Moretz loves a remake. The star who has still to turn twenty has already starred in six remakes (Let Me In, Dark Shadows, The Equalizer, Carrie, The Amityville Horror and The Eye). She’s not done though, having just signed on to star in the remake of Dario Argento‘s classic Suspiria.

Moretz joins Tilda Swinton and Dakota Johnson on the project which is being directed by A Bigger Splash‘s Luca Guadagnino. For those not familiar with the original 1977 movie the story tells of a young ballet dancer who discovers that her new dance academy is a front for something sinister and supernatural.

Now that Moretz is on-board production can get underway as soon as this month, with the shoot planned to take place in Italy and Hungary.

Are you ready for another Moretz remake? Let us know in the comments section.

3 October 2016 11:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Chloe Moretz is set to star opposite Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, and Mia Goth in Frenesy Film Company and Mythology Entertainment’s new retelling of the classic horror pic “Suspiria.”

A Bigger Splash” helmer Luca Guadagnino is directing. Amazon Studios has acquired the worldwide distribution rights and is financing the production. Amazon could not be reached for comment.

Suspiria is a Latin word for “sighs.”

Top 10 Box Office Takeaways: ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’ Tops Disastrous Weekend

2 October 2016 2:16 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Thank God for Clint Eastwood. “Sully” is the sole bright spot during this disastrous fall 2016 box office decline.

This weekend three new studio wide releases —”Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” (20th Century Fox), “Deepwater Horizon” (Lionsgate) and “Masterminds” (Relativity) — grossed a total of $56 million! Compare that to the $54 million that “The Martian” grossed by itself exactly one year ago.

With “Queen of Katwe” (Disney) drawing little interest, “The Magnificent Seven” diving 55% on its second weekend and other films not holding well, the weakness is widespread. Only “Sully” is thriving among fall openers.

This is distressing news for theaters. The 27 days of the season show a drop of 9% from last year. That’s $50 million. During the fall season a strong film or two (“The Girl on the Train” and “The Birth of a Nation” take their chances next week) can quickly change the direction, so it’s not fatal. »

Mr Burton's Box Office For CGI Whimsy

2 October 2016 10:53 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

If you were a peculiar orphan with supernatural powers could you imagine anyone more perfect than Eva Green to be your guardian? Tim Burton may not be the director he used to be in quality or bankablity but he was smart to latch on to Eva Green as his latest pale skinned raven haired muse. She ran so many circles around everything else that was happening in Dark Shadows (2012) it's a miracle that it was her character and not the film that cracked apart and crumbled. Her reviews are strong again for this new fantasy film.

Box Office: ‘Miss Peregrine’ Tops With $28.5 Million, ‘Deepwater Horizon,’ ‘Masterminds’ Bomb

2 October 2016 7:34 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tim Burton’s “Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children” topped a feeble crop of new releases to pick up first place at the weekend box office, opening to $28.5 million.

That’s a mediocre start given the fantasy film’s $110 million budget. However, the adaptation of Ransom Riggs’ best-selling young adult novel is doing well overseas where it made $36.5 million from 59 territories, so its global grosses could push it into the black. Burton is responsible for blockbusters such as “Batman” and “Planet of the Apes,” but his commercial touch has been spotty of late. He hasn’t had a major hit since 2010’s “Alice in Wonderland,” with audiences rejecting the likes of “Dark Shadows,” “Frankenweenie,” and “Big Eyes.” Fox and Chernin Entertainment backed “Miss Peregrine’s.”

Fox domestic distribution chief Chris Aronson said he was pleased with the results, but maintains that it is too early to say whether or »

Review: Miss Peregrine’S Home For Peculiar Children is an Eerie Adventure Worth Taking

30 September 2016 9:51 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Imagine if, instead of battling Magneto and his robot army of Sentinels, the X-Men were hunted by Slender Man-esque creatures intent on eating their eyeballs. Throw in some time travel, a little shape-shifting, and Judi Dench wielding a crossbow (in a scene that feels like an homage to Feast), and you have a good idea of what to expect from Tim Burton’s latest film, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

Friendless in Florida, teenager Jake (Asa Butterfield) doesn’t fit in with his peers and can’t quite gel with his parents. The only person who truly understands him is his grandfather, Abe (Terence Stamp), who used to tell him stories about how he grew up on a hidden island with uniquely gifted children before leaving to fight monsters (of the non-human variety) in World War II. Jake grew out of those bedtime stories over the years, though, and »

Forecast: Will Miss Peregrine's Opening Weekend Put Tim Burton Back On Top?

30 September 2016 7:20 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Tim Burton is one of the most iconic filmmakers of his generation. With a voice and style that's distinctly his own, he's had a sizable impact on American cinema over the last 30 years. That said, he's had a rough run of it lately...

To find Burton's last unadulterated hit, you'd have to go all the way back to 2010's Alice In Wonderland. And while that movie made a mint at the box office, it wasn't exactly a critical darling. He followed that up with directorial efforts like Dark Shadows, Frankenweenie, and Big Eyes- none of which really took the world by storm. 

That's what makes this weekend's Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children one to watch out for. The $110 million film could either serve as a rebound for Burton, or continue to put forth the idea that the director is on the decline. 

Based on Thursday previews, industry analysts »

Cast Begins to Board "Orient Express"

29 September 2016 9:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris here. Remember what fun we had awhile back fantasy casting Kenneth Branagh's upcoming Murder on the Orient Express remake? Well, now some official names have been added to the cast and it should be just as much of a delight.

The two biggest names come as something of an unexpected Dark Shadows reunion (sorry for the reminder about that Tim Burton misfire): Michelle Pfeiffer and Johnny Depp will be the headliners to Branagh's own Poirot. Pfeiffer becomes the natural successor to Lauren Bacall as Mrs. Hubbard, a casting coup that feels both inspired and accurate. With Beat-Up Little Seagull and Darren Aronofsky's next film which is also probably coming in 2017, we'll be grateful to be seeing quite a bit of her. Depp will be playing Ratchett, the victim of the titular murder.

But they weren't the only names signing up, and the others make for quite an exciting assemblage: Daisy Ridley, »

Weekend Box Office: 'Miss Peregrine's' Heads for $26M; 'Deepwater Horizon' Eyes $20M

29 September 2016 4:39 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Tim Burton's dark fantasy adventure Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children topped the Friday box office chart with $9 million from 3,522 theaters for a $26 million debut, according to projections. That would mark a solid, but not spectacular, start for Burton's first big-budget studio film since the ill-fated Dark Shadows four years ago. From Fox and Chernin Entertainment, Miss Peregrine's marks Tim Burton's first big-budget Hollywood studio movie since his ill-fated Dark Shadows in 2012 and cost $110 million to make. At that price point, box-office analysts caution the movie will need to

'Miss Peregrine', 'Deepwater Horizon' and 'Masterminds' Close Out September

29 September 2016 12:48 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

When compared to last year, September 2016 has been a bit of a rough and tumble month. While there have been a pair of $30+ million openers, there have also been more than a fair share of disappointments. This weekend closes out the month with two new big budget releases in the form of Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and Peter Berg's Deepwater Horizon, both hoping to make a case for their price tag while the long-delayed ensemble comedy Masterminds finally hits theaters after enduring six release date changes over the past 18 months. Overall, the weekend is once again looking to underperform compared to the same weekend last year, which saw The Martian top the box office with $54 million. At the top, Tim Burton returns to work at Fox for the first time since 2001's Planet of the Apes remake and he does so with Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, »

It’s the “Dark Shadows” reunion you’ve been waiting for! Well, maybe not, but earlier this week, word came that two stars from Tim Burton‘s campy 2012 flop — Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer — were being eyed for Kenneth Branagh‘s “Murder On The Orient Express.” Well, it looks like the movie is leaving the station as a full ensemble of players have been revealed for the project.

Weekend Box Office Preview: Tim Burton’s ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’ Will Nab Top Spot

29 September 2016 10:05 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Things get serious this weekend. Three studio released with a combined cost of some $300 million —”Deepwater Horizon” (Lionsgate), “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” (20th Century Fox) and “Masterminds” (Relativity)— are opening on a single early fall release date.

After three fall weeks, Clint Eastwood’s “Sully” is the sole clear winner with “The Magnificent Seven” opening in the mid-$30 millions. So the season is down 15% so far.

For all three new releases, this timing could be perilous. The same weekend in 2015, “The Martian” opened at $54 million and the second weekend of “Hotel Transylvania 2” scored $33 million, boosting a Top Ten total to $140 million. Weekend results could bring both marginal returns for the three studios as well as a continuation of the downward trend.

At least each of this week’s debut films can rely on some pedigree to boost their chances. But their anticipated results will all fall »

Box-Office Preview: Can 'Miss Peregrine's Home' Evict 'Deepwater Horizon,' 'Masterminds'?

29 September 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Filmmaker Tim Burton returns to theaters this weekend with the family-friendly Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, which is widely expected to beat Peter Berg's ripped-from-the-headlines Deepwater Horizon and Relativity's comedy Masterminds, according to projections. Based on the popular Ya novel of the same name by Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine is expected to open to $25 million or higher, a solid start for Burton, whose last big-budget Hollywood film, Dark Shadows, was a major disappointment. Fox produced the fantasy film for $110 million with Chernin Entertainment. Asa Butterfield, Eva Green, Chirs O'Dowd, Allison Janney, Rupert Everett,

'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children' Review: Tim Burton Returns

29 September 2016 5:30 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Tim Burton is a wizard of odd. The best of his films take us into a world where anything is possible ... but the impossible is even better. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, based on Ransom Rigg's 2011 young-adult novel, is so crowded with incident that it sometimes seems in danger of imploding. But Burton has always had an affinity for the peculiar. so how could he resist Miss Peregrine? As played by the bracingly eccentric Eva Green (the Penny Dreadful star who worked with Burton in 2012's Dark Shadows), Miss »

Ryan Lambie Published Date  Thursday, September 29, 2016 - 09:52

A mad young inventor in a loft constructs living creatures from spare parts. A teenage girl wears asbestos gloves to prevent herself from lighting fires with her hands. A small boy has a right eye which can project his dreams onto a wall. These and other shunned oddments of society live in a neo-gothic house on a remote Welsh island, all watched over by the imposing yet good-natured Miss Peregrine - who you might recognise as Eva Green smoking a pipe.

There’s much in the novels by Ransom Riggs that seems tailor made for Tim Burton’s cheerfully macabre sensibility, and Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children arrives on the silver screen like an X-Men comic drawn by Edward Gorey. Viewers familiar with such movies as Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands and Dark Shadows will recognise Burton’s handiwork here; Miss Peregrine is, »

‘Murder On The Orient Express’ eyes Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer

29 September 2016 12:26 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Sir Kenneth Branagh‘s planned redo of Agatha Christie’s Murder On The Orient Express has just stepped up its casting prospects and is said to be eyeing Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer for two key roles.

This article over at The Hollywood Reporter revealed the news of the potential castings.

Branagh says his adaptation, which is expected to put together an all-star cast (he was interested in Angelina Jolie but a deal never came together; other names of interest but not officially attached include Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer), will bring to the screen her depth of character and story rather than any cliched “kind of parlor game.”

Shooting on the film is expected to kick off in London before Christmas once Branagh has finished up work at The Garrett theatre in the West End where he has held a 12-month residency. The legendary British actor and filmmaker will also appear in the film. »
