Disney Pictures and Marvel Studios' superhero feature "Captain America: Civil War" keeps doing massive business with the movie pulling in $75.3 million on Friday and estimates for its domestic opening weekend now being pegged at $180 million.
Should it reach its $180M weekend estimate, that would make it the best opening weekend of the year and the fifth best of all time - putting it behind only "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" ($248M), "Jurassic World" ($209M), "The Avengers" ($207M) and "Avengers: Age of Ultron" ($191M). If it slides a bit on Sunday, then it might fall behind "Iron Man 3" ($174M).
Along with stellar critical reviews, the film has earned a strong A overall CinemaScore (and A+ in several demographics). The film also »

Disney and Marvel's Captain America: Civil War continues to do mighty business at the box office, earning an estimated $75.3 million Friday on its way to $180 million for its domestic debut -- the fifth best opening weekend ever. The stellar tally from industry estimates gives the superhero film the eighth best opening day in history, just ahead of The Twilight Saga: New Moon ($72.7 million) and behind The Dark Knight Rises ($75.8 million). The film, which centers on a disagreement that forces the Avengers to choose sides between Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Iron Man/Tony Stark

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” appears to be losing steam as it ends its second weekend in theaters.
Once again, the critically loathed superhero film topped the box office, picking up $52.4 million. However, that represented a steep 68% fall from its $166 million debut. The results suggest that “Batman v Superman” will be a front-loaded blockbuster along the lines of “The Twilight Saga: New Moon,” “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” or “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” all of which earned a disproportionate share of their revenues in their initial weekends and suffered similar drop-offs. Given that the picture features two of the highest-profile comic-book characters in movie history, the results, which on paper are impressive, are nevertheless being heavily scrutinized.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice does not have the staying power previous blockbusters such as Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Deadpool have experienced in recent months. Heck, it's not even doing as well in its second weekend as the animated Disney hit Zootopia. And this does not bode well for the Dceu.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice earned just $15.4 million dollars at the domestic box office on its second Friday in release. The movie is currently screening in 4,256 theaters. So far, it has racked up $224.4 million, which would be very impressive for a lesser movie. But this is Warner Bros.' big shot at not only setting up the Justice League but all of the Dceu spinoffs that come with it. In comparison, Batman v Superman earned $81.6 million last Friday, including $27.7 million from Thursday Night previews. Even without the Thursday numbers, we're looking at a drastic 70% drop »

The reason Hollywood keeps making sequels? They make the most profit, on the whole...
A new piece of research by Forbes has concluded that if you want to make serious cash from a blockbuseter movie then you need to be in the sequel business.
Taking figures provided by The Numbers, it analysed a list of what it reckoned to be the most profitable films ever – albeit by a fairly crude formula, that we’ll come to in a second – and discovered that 15 of the 20 films concerned were sequels.
The crude formula? It took the estimated cost of production of the film concerned, a figure that in truth is impossible to gleam at the best of times, and took away the worldwide income to the studio. Income, though, isn’t the same as profit. $1 taken at the box office in the Us returns more money to a movie »
Chris Weitz has had a varied career. Weitz directed The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Golden Compass and co-directed About a Boy and American Pie with his brother, Paul Weitz (Being Flynn). Chris Weitz’s career is a little all over the map, but he’s clearly comfortable with drama, as exhibited by About a Boy and his last feature, A Better Life. For his next directorial effort, he might depict the hunt for […]

The evolution of Chris Weitz has been interesting to watch. He started off directing broad comedies with his brother Paul Weitz, with fare like "American Pie," "Down To Earth," and "About A Boy." Then he went solo on two blockbusters, "The Golden Compass" and "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," before switching gears again, and making the intimate drama "A Better Life." Now, he's tackling a story which marks another intriguing change of pace for the filmmaker. Read More: 'The Golden Compass' And 'A Better Life' Scribe Chris Weitz Set To Write 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' Deadline reports that Weitz will direct a movie about the hunt for famed Nazi Adolph Eichmann. Matthew Orton has penned the script that tells the story of the man who organized the transport of Jews to concentration traps, fled to Argentina after the war, and was the target of a manhunt »

Eichmann was in charge of the logistics of mass deportation of Jews to Nazi extermination camps in Eastern Europe during World War II. He fled to his native Austria after the war and then moved to Argentina, where he was seen in 1953 in Buenos Aires.
Eichmann was captured in 1960 by agents of the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad. Following a widely publicized trial in Israel, he was convicted of war crimes and executed by hanging in 1962.
Eichmann never showed any remorse for his crimes.
Weitz signed on earlier this month to adapt the screenplay »

The studio began development of the movie shortly after the June 26 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court case that effectively legalized same-sex marriage. Fox acquired the life rights of Jim Obergefell, the lead plaintiff in the lawsuit that went to the court, and life rights to Obergefell’s attorney, Al Gerhardstein.
The Fox 2000 division has set up the project with producers Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen through their Temple Hill banner. The studio has also bought the movie rights to a book proposal by Obergefell and journalist Debbie Cenziper, to be titled “21 Years to Midnight.” William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins, is publishing “21 Years to Midnight” in June.
Obergefell married John Arthur in Maryland in 2013, three months before his death. Obergefell later sued the state »
