'Maze Runner' Quick Out of the Gate on Friday

6 hours ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

The Maze Runner jumped out to the front of the pack on Friday with $11.25 million. Otherwise, business was relatively quiet: A Walk Among the Tombstones and This is Where I Leave You fell a bit short, while No Good Deed and Dolphin Tale 2 fell hard going in to their second weekends.Playing at 3,604 theaters, The Maze Runner debuted to more than twice as much as recent young-adult misses like The Giver ($4.75 million) and The Host ($5.3 million). Still, it only opened to around half as much as March's Divergent ($22.8 million), which puts it squarely in the middle of the young-adult range.A closer comparison is last November's Ender's Game, which opened to $9.8 million on its way to a $27 million weekend. If The Maze Runner follows Ender's pattern, it will finish the weekend with just over $30 million (a very good result).Opening at 2,712 theaters, A Walk Among the Tombstones took second place with $4.7 million. »

Finally: 'Guardians of the Galaxy' first $300 million movie of 2014

14 September 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It took an eyebrow raising nine months, but Hollywood finally has its first $300 million grosser of 2014.  Marvel Studios' "Guardians of the Galaxy" crossed the magic mark on Saturday and ended the weekend with an estimated $305.9 million. The James Gunn action adventure had already surpassed another Marvel flick, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," to become the no. 1 movie of the year (so far) on August 28. Budgeted at a reported $170 million, "Guardians" has been a huge success for Marvel and Disney pulling in over $611 million worldwide.  It now ranks as the fifth highest grossing Marvel Studios movie ever after "The Avengers" and all three "Iron Man" films.  If Disney can hold onto theaters it has an excellent chance at surpassing "Iron Man 2's" $312.4 million for no. 4. Earning raves from Iron Man himself, Robert Downey, Jr., and even Al Pacino, "Guardians'" success has been an anomaly in what has been a »

Box Office: 'No Good Deed' passes 'Dolphin Tale 2' for no. 1

14 September 2014 9:48 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

On a weekend where "Guardians of the Galaxy" became the first movie to pass $300 million domestically in 2014, Hollywood saw some signs of life over a traditionally weak September box office frame.   Screen Gems' thriller "No Good Deed" tapped into a African-American audience looking for something different and pulled in a superb $24.5 million for no. 1.  That being said, the Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson thriller earned negative reviews from critics and received an Ok B+ Cinemascore (A is actually average), but with a reported budget of $13.2 million its well on its way to profitability.  It's also a nice bounce back for Screen Gems who misfired on the horror thriller "Deliver Us From Evil" in July. The second slot went to "Dolphin Tale 2" which disappointed with just $16.5 million. Pre-release tracking had the sequel to the 2011 hit earning more than the $19.1 million the original found.  The Warner Bros. and Alcon »

Should Marvel Studios start pairing heroes for team-up movies?

12 September 2014 10:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thomas Roach on why Marvel Studios should start pairing heroes for team-up movies…

With Marvel aiming to introduce more and more characters to the Cinematic Universe, I think it is worth them doing duo movies with two heroes teaming up as the leads. There are characters who we want to get to see more of, but in no way could carry their own movie. This is not due to the fact that the characters are bad in any way, but in my opinion how some characters have been portrayed to date has hindered the chances of them being leads in their own movies.

Personally, I feel that some characters are unsuitable for their own movie. For example lots of people are calling for a Black Widow movie but I think it is too late for her to carry a film. She has only ever been a supporting character. She was »

16 different ways that films make money

12 September 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Box office is one way a film makes its cash: but what are the others?

I know you’ll have noticed this by now, but it’s definitely called show business for a reason. It’s not show show art, show entertainment or even show exhibitionist impulse. Unless movies make money, the money to make movies would dry up pretty quickly. But where does this money come from?

Actually, that’s an easy one. It comes, almost entirely, from you and me and people like us. The real question should be how does this money get from our back pockets and into the coffers of the big movie studios.

Some of the pathways are incredibly obvious, some perhaps a little less so. Let’s take a look at 16 of the ways that movies make money.

1. Ticket sales

Andrew Garfield Attributes The Amazing Spider-Man 2′s Faults To Studio Interference

11 September 2014 8:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Looking back in hindsight, it’s fair to say that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 wasn’t the commercial or indeed critical hit that many had anticipated. Deemed a mish-mash that was too concerned of establishing threads for future films in the series — much like Iron Man 2, actually — Marc Webb’s sequel failed to emulate the success of the other Spider-man 2 when it arrived in theaters earlier this year.

So, what went wrong? Well, although many attributed its faults to an overwhelming amount of material — a stash that caused the running time to balloon past two hours and twenty minutes — the missing factor could be attributed to story elements that remained on the cutting room floor. That’s according to Peter Parker himself, Andrew Garfield, who spoke to The Daily Beast and reflected back on his latest outing in the spandex suit.

Former MGM Marketing Exec Lands At Saban Brands

9 September 2014 2:14 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

After ramping up the exec ranks of its newly launched film division this spring, Haim Saban’s Saban Brands has hired Doug Finberg to lead brand marketing across its portfolio of properties. The former Evp Marketing at MGM Studios will step into the newly created role of Svp Marketing, heading marketing, publicity, creative, promotions, and digital initiatives at Saban. Those brands include Power Rangers, which Saban is rebooting with Lionsgate as a big-screen franchise, Paul Frank, Macbeth, Julius Jr., Popples and Emojiville. Saban Films launched in May with an ambitious plan to release 8-10 commercial, talent-driven features per year, then hired Jonathan Saba as VP Marketing and Azniv Taschyan as VP Finance.

Finberg left MGM last September when his contract ran out, and the studio boosted TV/home entertainment Evp Michael Brown to a worldwide marketing post, where he assumed many of Finberg’s former responsibilities. Finberg now will bring »

Michael Douglas says Paul Rudd is too “ripped” for his Ant-Man suit

8 September 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In an interview with MTV, actor Michael Douglas revealed that Paul Rudd is “too ripped” for his Ant-Man costume in the upcoming Marvel Studios movie of the same name.

Douglas stated that, “Paul Rudd is ripped, he’s been training and working out for this picture for a long time. He was so cut, that they had to soften his costume up, with all the built-in six-packs and all of that.”

Rudd plays the character of Scott Lang, who in the comics becomes Ant-Man after stealing the suit from Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man. Douglas plays Pym, although he has stated that he won’t be donning the suit himself: “My costume will be hung up, and Paul will be wearing it in good form”

With the inclusion of John Slattery – who played Howard Stark in Iron Man 2  – there is a chance that we’ll see Hank Pym working with S. »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

Jessica Chastain Would Love To Play A Superhero: "I Want To Wear A Cool Costume"

8 September 2014 12:18 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain has yet to appear in any major blockbusters, but recently told the Guardian that she "would love to do a superhero movie! I would have loved to have played Black Widow. Obviously, Scarlett Johansson scored the role of Black Widow in Iron Man 2, but Chastain has "gotten really close" in the past, dropping out of Iron Man 3 due to scheduling conflicts a few years ago. "The problem is, if I do a superhero movie, I don't want to be the girlfriend. I don't want to be the daughter. I want to wear a fucking cool costume with a scar on my face, with fight scenes. That’s what I'd love." Fans have been clamouring for a female-led superhero movie for years now, and hopefully we'll be getting some in the near future - Gal Gadot joining Batman v Superman and Justice League as Wonder Woman »

'Black Widow' : "Interview"

6 September 2014 7:46 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ Marvel Studios' favorite 'Black Widow', as actress Scarlett Johansson poses for revealing photos in a past issue of "Interview" magazine:

March 2009, Johansson first signed on to play Marvel Comics' Russian spy 'Natasha Romanoff' aka the 'Black Widow' in the feature "Iron Man 2", as an undercover spy for 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' posing as an assistant to 'Tony Stark' (Robert Downey Jr.) aka 'Iron Man'.

She was cast only after a scheduling conflict forced actress Emily Blunt to drop out of the part.

Johansson then reprised the role in director Joss Whedon's "The Avengers" (2012) confirming that Marvel was "really behind" the character. She portrayed Black Widow again in the 2014 feature "Captain America: The Winter Soldier".

And in the Marvel Studios' sequel "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron", Johansson plays the character on film for an unprecedented fourth time, »

Blu-ray Review – The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

3 September 2014 11:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2, 2014.

Directed by Marc Webb.

Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, B.J. Novak, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, Chris Zylka and Denis Leary.

Synopsis:

When atrocities threaten New York, Spider-Man must protect the citizens of New York and his loved ones before New York’s heart befalls into tragedy.

Despite helping to change the face of the superhero movie in 21st century Hollywood, the Spider-Man franchise died before our very eyes, delighting and enthralling before crashing and burning. The best intentions of director Sam Raimi notwithstanding, Spider-Man 3 failed, even if it was the franchises’ highest grosser. While many blamed the excess of villains and characters, which led to a horribly disjointed script, it was the studio’s insistence on things (namely Venom) that ultimately derailed our friendly neighbourhood Spidey. Now, 10 years since Spider-Man 2 »

Jessica Chastain Calls Out Marvel, Demands Scarlett Johansson-Led Black Widow Spinoff

3 September 2014 9:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Marvel has been coming under fire in recent months for a lack of female-led superhero movies in its existent and planned Cinematic Universe, and now Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain, known for playing strong-willed female protagonists in films like Zero Dark Thirty and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, is getting in on the discussion.

In a recent conversation with TheWrap, Chastain commented on the fact that Scarlett Johansson, who has played superhero Black Widow in three Marvel entries thus far (Iron Man 2The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier), has yet to receive her own movie.

Chastain asked:

“Where is the Scarlett Johansson superhero movie? I don’t understand it, why is it taking so long for this? This woman clearly shows that people want to go see her in movies.”

The actress noted that Lucy, which Johansson recently toplined, outgrossed the Dwayne Johnson-led Hercules at the box office this past July, »

Robert Downey Jr. Supports a Black Widow Film

3 September 2014 6:48 AM, PDT | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Everyone wants to see a female-led Marvel Studios movie at this point. Despite the fact that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige isn't ready to fully commit to the idea, the demand is at an all-time high. Though some fans would like to see Captain Marvel make a jump to the big screen (us included!), many are still clamoring for a solo Black Widow film, especially given how much adoration there is for the character following Iron Man 2, The Avengers, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. »

Teen Wolf season 4 episode 11 review: A Promise To The Dead

2 September 2014 11:54 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

This week's Teen Wolf sows the seeds for the season's remaining episodes. Here's Ron's review...

This review contains spoilers.

4.11 A Promise To The Dead

Since his return as a quipping, sarcastic guy who never met an ulterior motive he couldn't keep hidden somewhere beneath a too-tight v-neck shirt, Peter Hale has proven time and time again to be one of the most fun characters in the Teen Wolf universe. He's clearly becoming the bad guy, and probably has been for a while, but he's just so funny and charming that you can't help but appreciate him and be thankful that he's out there plotting to kill pretty much everyone not himself. He has a lot in common with Kate Argent in that way.

Kate brought a very interesting dynamic to Teen Wolf's first season that the show had trouble recapturing. She was both sexy and dangerous (remember Peter essentially seducing Lydia? »

Robert Downey Jr. Says ScarJo Needs a Break from 'Black Widow'

2 September 2014 9:51 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Many fans have been wondering when Scarlett Johansson's The Black Widow will get her own stand-alone movie, after starring in Iron Man 2, Marvel's The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and next year's Avengers: Age of Ultron. Game of Thrones director Neil Marshall even revealed last week that he's interested in directing the movie, but we have no clue how far along Marvel is in developing Black Widow.

The actress' co-star Robert Downey Jr. chimed in with his thoughts on the topic during a recent interview, where he says the actress deserves a break before starting a new movie, especially since she's about to have her first child.

"Doesn't Scarlett deserve a break? Look, I think that the interesting thing particularly after Guardians (of the Galaxy) with Zoe (Saldana), (or) even from the first Iron Man where Pepper was kind of this really - to me the Iron Man »

Stan Lee Says Marvel's Black Panther is Happening

2 September 2014 3:31 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

It's not clear how much Stan Lee knows about Marvel's movie strategy, but every time he's asked to comment on future films, he responds as if every secret is shared with him. On Friday, the comic book creator spoke at Fan Expo Canada, where he was asked if Marvel will ever make a "Black Widow" film. He said: "The chances are she will have her own movie because eventually all the superheroes are going to have their own movies. They are already working on 'Ant-Man,' 'Doctor Strange' and the 'Black Panther,' and there are others I am not allowed to talk about." Judging by that response, he's not sure about "Black Widow," but "Black Panther" is definitely happening. After all, he grouped it with "Ant-Man" and "Doctor Strange," two films we know are in development. There hasn't been a lot of news about "Black Panther, »
