Friday Report: Box Office Do-'Minion'

10 July 2015 12:02 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Minions, the 3-D prequel to Universal's Despicable Me franchise, opened to $6.2M last night in a reported 2,985 venues for a per-theater take of $2,077. The CG animated flick from Illumination Entertainment marches into 4,301 venues today, the most North American venues in Universal's history. Thus Minions looks on track to replicate the domestic success of its predecessor Despicable Me 2, which opened to $83.5M in 3,997 theaters on the Fourth of July weekend in 2013. Actually, if this third installment can keep Despicable Me 2's same per theater take of $20,895, Minions will leave the weekend closer to the $90M mark, if not higher. It's particularly feasible considering Inside Out opened to $3.7M on its Thursday preview showings putting it on the path to a smashing $91M weekend.Also opening, but not a competitive threat to the little, yellow, pill-shaped creatures, is Focus Features' Self/Less, which is opening in 2,353 venues.

The Jurassic World Effect: Rio Director to Helm Live-Action Monster Movie for Fox

24 June 2015 1:31 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As Universal's Jurassic World continues to break records all over the planet, competing studios are working quickly to capitalize on the film’s success. The giant shark movie Meg just came out of development hell with Eli Roth in talks to direct, and now 20th Century Fox has paid big bucks for a monster movie pitch. Per THR, the studio has acquired a live-action/CG project called Shadows from writer Jason Micallef (Butter) for $750,000 against $1.5 million. The film takes place in the world of cryptozoology, a pseudoscience that involves the study of animals whose existence has not been proven. Brazillian filmmaker Carlos Saldanha is set to direct Shadows, which will be his first splash into live-action territory after helming Rio and Rio 2 as well as Ice Age: The Meltdown and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. Saldanha got his start as co-director of animated films like Ice Age and »

The Top 9 Dinosaur Movies of All Time, Ranked

10 June 2015 2:42 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

This one's for you, aspiring paleontologists!  From the groundbreaking visual effects seen in Disney's Dinosaur to the cute and cuddly baby dino's featured in Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (for a hot second we seriously wanted a pint-size pet T-Rex after this one), prehistoric reptiles have long been a mainstay in Hollywood cinema. Who could forget the 1995 classic Theodore Rex, where Whoopi Goldberg plays a police officer paired up with a talking dinosaur to save the world? We know, we know...why was a sequel never made?  But it wasn't until the terrifyingly awesome first Jurassic Park installment hit theaters in 1993 did dinosaurs and popcorn become one of our favorite movie-night »

Top 20 Most Profitable Movies That Are Terrible

25 May 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Movies that make money don’t always do so because they’re good. Here’s our list of underwhelming movies that happened to overwhelm the box office.

While the box office is a good, general representation of the popularity of a film, it is not necessarily an indicator of quality. Yes, it is true that most of the highest grossing movies have also received favorable reviews from critics and audiences alike, that’s often what makes them a hit, but there are some exceptions. This is a list of those exceptions. This is a list of those movies that did spectacularly well at the box office, but ended up being an inferior product.

So why would so many people want to see a terrible film? Why would they waste their hard-earned money and fleeting free time? The answer is actually pretty simple. Many of these films share a lot of common traits. »

27 March 2015 3:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Bill Hader has signed on to join the growing cast of director Steven Spielberg's The Bfg. The actor will play one of the giants in this adaptation of Roald Dahl's beloved 1982 novel, joining a cast that includes Mark Rylance and Ruby Barnhill. Production will take place in Vancouver, but it isn't known when shooting is scheduled to start.

The story centers on a young girl (Ruby Barnhill) who meets a Big Friendly Giant (Mark Rylance) and is taken inside their world, known as Giant Country. She teams up with this Bfg and the Queen of England to stop a group of mean giants from invading the rest of the planet. No specific details were given for Bill Hader's character, except that he will play one of the not-so-friendly giants.

Steven Spielberg is directing from an adapted screenplay by Melissa Mathison (E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial). The director is »
