'Black Mass' Trailer: This Is the Johnny Depp Everyone Has Been Waiting to See Again

23 April 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Johnny Depp is a tremendous actor. No one is going to argue that point. And yet we can also all agree that people don't get as excited for his movies as they once did. After a string of oddballs like Alice in Wonderland, Dark Shadows, The Lone Ranger, Transcendence, and Mortdecai, it's understandable that many fans aren't so quick to fall for yet another movie where Depp plays a cooky weirdo with a strange wardrobe. Black Mass, however, looks like it will realign everyone's expectations for Depp movies back to the likes of Blow, Donnie Brasco, and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Directed by Scott Cooper (Into the Furnace), Black Mass tells the true story of notorious Boston criminal Whitey Bulger, and as you can see from the intense first trailer for the movie...

First official look at Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger in Black Mass

22 April 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Johnny Depp has not exactly proven himself worthy of his extra large paychecks in recent years. With flops critically and commercially like The Lone Ranger, Mortdecai, Transcendence, Dark Shadows, and more, Depp has not shined the way he did just five years ago. But, from all indications, that is about to change with Scott Cooper's Black Mass. Based on the true crimes of gangster Whitey Bulger, Black Mass just received a lot of buzz out of CinemaCon based on the first footage and »

Gremlins Remake Lands Disturbia Writer

8 April 2015 12:40 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Color me shocked: the Gremlins remake is gaining momentum once again. In an era where TV shows like Coach and Full House are being given the redo treatment, it’s no surprise that Warner Bros. hasn’t given up on a new adaptation of Joe Dante’s 1984 classic. The most recent iteration of the project had Seth Grahame-Smith (Dark Shadows) producing and bringing an idea to Steven Spielberg and Chris Columbus—who scripted the first film—but he recently said the project “ran out of steam.” Well it looks as though Warner Bros. has found plenty more steam to throw into the property, as Deadline reports that Disturbia screenwriter Carl Ellsworth has been tapped to pen the screenplay for the Gremlins remake, with Columbus and Spielberg producing. Ellsworth’s credits include the remakes The Last House on the Left and Red Dawn, as well as the upcoming Goosebumps, so his »

Review: Jemaine Clement & Taika Waititi's 'What We Do In The Shadows' Is A Silly, Scary Delight

13 February 2015 3:09 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Vampires are a particularly versatile cinematic creature, easily able to transform and readjust to the scenario or metaphoric requirement. Over the past few years, they have shown up on the big screen in a number of guises — sparkly lovelorn teenagers, brooding old world counts, Colin Farrell — but a vampire comedy is a more difficult nut to crack (or vein to drain). In the summer of 2012, not even the combined might of Johnny Depp, Tim Burton, and the "Dark Shadows" television series could make a blood-sucking comedy connect with broad audiences. Thankfully, "What We Do In the Shadows," the new vampire comedy from "Flight of the Conchords" principals Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, is a refreshing, laugh-out-loud funny picture that is perfectly happy with its somewhat niche appeal. It goes in late, it gets out early, and it's a total hoot. A series of title cards set up the general premise »

Lionsgate on ‘Mortdecai': ‘It’s Clearly a Disappointment’

6 February 2015 8:52 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer has asserted that Johnny Depp’s “Mortdecai” will be a “very manageable” loss for the studio despite the comedy’s weak box office performance.

“It’s clearly a disappointment,” Feltheimer told analysts Friday during the company’s conference call to discuss earnings for its third quarter ended Dec. 31.

Mortdecai,” which carries a $60 million price tag, has underperformed significantly since its Jan. 23 launch with $7 million in U.S. box office. It’s grossed another $11 million internationally.

The exec noted that Lionsgate’s financing structure, which uses foreign pre-sales to limit its downside, has minimized the studio’s exposure along with an investment by Gigi Pritzker’s OddLot as part of their financing partnership.

Feltheimer has credited the financing model in the past with limiting Lionsgate’s average exposure per film to $13 million.

The studio had high hopes for “Mortdecai” last year. Feltheimer told analysts last May that »

Nicolas Winding Refn’s next venture, The Neon Demon, is set to explore a new cinematic terrain for the esoteric director.

The trade doesn’t offer any further details on the characters that the four actors look set to play, but the quartet will join Maleficent‘s Elle Fanning, toplining the project as “an aspiring model who is caught in a world of beauty and demise,” and Abbey Lee, as “a cool ringleader that other girls want to follow. Envious, emotionally unstable and a tad delusional, she shows her true maniacal colors in the end. »

Fantastic Four: what we know about the reboot

27 January 2015 1:41 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We've now had our first glimpse at Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four. Here’s everything we know about 2015’s most mysterious blockbuster.

We’ve known about the Fantastic Four reboot for quite some time, but that hasn’t stopped it being a mysterious project which, until this week, we knew next to nothing about.

We knew that the cast, director and groundwork of the original 2005 film, and its 2007 sequel Rise Of The Silver Surfer, had been firmly thrown out in favour of a new visual look, some reimagining of the source material and an altogether more modern take on the Marvel comics property. Beyond that, many facets of the film remained a mystery. 

Yet the reveal of the new trailer finally gave us a few more specifics. And here's what we know so far...

5 Ways Actors Over 50 Are Shaking Up Their Careers to Avoid the Johnny Depp Curse

26 January 2015 3:01 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The 51-year-old actor adds another flop to his already long streak, but other actors aren’t betting their careers on only box-office bankability

Johnny Depp could be considered one of Hollywood’s biggest stars on the planet, but he hasn’t had a hit at the box office in ages and “Mortdecai” has just been added to the list of bombs.

The actor plays the Wolf in Disney’s ensemble musical “Into the Woods,” but his last leading man hit was 2011’s installment of “Pirates of the Caribbean.” Last year’s “Transcendence” fizzled, as did 2013’s “The Lone Ranger” and »

American Sniper holds top spot at weekend box office

26 January 2015 9:26 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

American Sniper hit the mark with moviegoers again.

The military drama starring Bradley Cooper as Navy Seal marksman Chris Kyle topped the box office for a second weekend in a row with $64.4 million in first place, according to studio estimates Sunday. American Sniper is up for six Academy Awards, including best picture and best actor for Cooper. The total haul for the Warner Bros. film now stands at $200.1 million.

"We've never quite seen anything like this at this time of year," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at box-office tracker Rentrak. "American Sniper is helping to propel the box office, which is already 9.3 percent ahead of the same time last year."

The film, directed by Clint Eastwood, already broke box-office records when it expanded to wide release last weekend, easily surpassing Avatar to become the biggest January opening for a movie and immediately becoming the top grosser among best-picture Oscar nominees. »

‘American Sniper’ Shoots Past $200M, ‘Mortdecai’ Nosedives At $4.1M – Sunday Final

25 January 2015 7:43 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Final Update, Sunday Am: Warner Bros. is reporting that American Sniper will raise its domestic cume to $200.1M through Sunday after a massive $64.4M weekened at 3,705 theaters, the third-highest weekend ever in January, behind Sniper’s opening last weekend, and Avatar’s third Fss of $68.5M.

That figure, should it hold into tomorrow, marks a mere 28-percent slip – the best second-week hold for a wide release ever for a film that debuted with more than $85M. Previous to this, the best big debuts to hold an audience were 2004’s Shrek 2 (down 33 percent in its second frame) and 2002’s Spider-Man (down 38 percent). American Sniper is marching toward $300M, a mark only six Warner Bros. films have passed.

“Many exhibitors are hearing from their theater managers that the infrequent moviegoers who go only two to three times a year, are coming out to see this movie,” said Warner Bros. distribution chief Dan Fellman. »
