'Star Wars: Rogue One' Debuts With Over $290 Million Worldwide, 'Collateral Beauty' Struggles

18 December 2016 9:43 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Disney and Lucasfilm's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story top-lined the fourth largest December three-day weekend ever, delivering the third largest opening of 2016, the twelfth largest opening of all-time and became only the second December opener to debut over $100 million behind last year's monster opening for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Fellow new wide release, New Line's Collateral Beauty, didn't fare quite so well, delivering the worst wide opening for a Will Smith-led feature ever, though La La Land continued to impress following last weekend's strong limited debut as it expanded into 200 theaters this weekend. Debuting with an estimated $155 million domestically from 4,157 theaters, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is off to a strong start as it is already the 15th highest grossing release of 2016 after just three days. It will, however, soon find itself competing for audience attention over the upcoming holiday season, which features no »

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story grosses $71 million on Friday at the U.S. box office

17 December 2016 8:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having debuted to the biggest Thursday previews of the year, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story got its domestic run underway yesterday, with the Gareth Edwards-directed Anthology movie lighting up the box office with a Friday gross of $71 million.

Rogue One’s haul is the third-biggest opening day of the year behind Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($81 million) and Captain America: Civil War ($75 million), and the twelfth biggest in history after The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 ($71.6 million). Weekend projections now range from between $150 and $175 million.

International numbers for Friday are yet to come in, but the film had grossed $33 million outside of the U.S. by close of play on Thursday.

Box Office: ‘Rogue One’ Blasting to $140 Million-Plus Opening Weekend

16 December 2016 1:18 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Disney-Lucasfilm’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is dominating the domestic box with a huge $140 million opening weekend coming into view, early estimates showed Friday.

Disney issued a range of $135 million to $140 million, noting that weather continues to be an unknown factor in some parts of the country. The number includes $29 million in Thursday night business — the biggest Thursday preview of the year and the seventh-largest of all time. The studio is estimating an opening day near $70 million, including the $29 million preview figure.

Recent forecasts had estimated this week that “Rogue One” would open to between $120 million to $150 million domestically this weekend at 4,157 sites. Rivals issued estimates Friday of as high as $160 million.

Meanwhile, Will Smith’s drama “Collateral Beauty” is showing little traction with early estimates of a weekend at under $8 million at 3,028 locations

All The Times the Twilight Cast Has Trashed the Movie Since Breaking Dawn Hit Theaters

18 November 2016 12:31 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

No one hates the Twilight saga more than well, the cast of the Twilight saga.  Sure, the book-to-movie series launched the careers of titular stars Robert PattinsonKristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, but that doesn't mean they look back on their time as vampires and werewolves with the fondest of memories. And believe it or not, today marks the fifth year anniversary of Breaking Dawn: Part 1's release, so what better reason to reminisce on Bella and Edward's star-crossed romance than with a look back at how much K. Stew and R-Patz just couldn't stand it.  So without further ado, E! News presents an unofficial lesson in trash-talking and »

Exclusive: 'Beauty and the Beast' Director on Seeing Emma Watson in Belle’s Yellow Gown and Creating a Disney Cinematic Universe

14 November 2016 7:03 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It's a tale as old as time, but it's never looked quite so shiny and new before. Ahead of Monday's release of the Beauty and the Beast trailer, Et got on the phone with Bill Condon, the director behind such varied projects as Dreamgirls and both parts of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, to discuss what it was like seeing Emma Watson in Belle’s yellow dress for the first time, what it took to bring the Beast to life, and whether there might ever be a shared cinematic universe where all the Disney princesses team up, Avengers-style.

Kristen Stewart Looks Back on 'Uncomfortable' 'Twilight' Years: 'It Kind of Forced Me to Stand to Attention'

11 November 2016 6:53 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Kristen Stewart is opening up about a significant time in her life.

The 26-year-old actress recently dropped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Friday, marking her first time in five years. The last time Stewart was on the popular daytime show was in 2011, when she appeared with the entire Twilight cast to promote The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1.

"I feel like I'm looking at a college yearbook," Stewart says when DeGeneres pulls up a picture from her last visit. "I don't jump right back into those memories but as soon as you see pictures, you're like, 'oooh God, it's like yesterday' ... and then maybe not."

More Twilight Movies? Lionsgate Chairman Admits “It’s A Possibility”

28 September 2016 7:09 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lionsgate is, according to co-chairman Patrick Wachsberger, currently going through something of a “sea change.” Chatting to Screen Daily, the executive and all-round industry stalwart – Wachsberger has been operating in the movie business for over 30 years – spoke broadly about the company’s stance in the here and now, along with the potential future of its undisputed crowd jewel, Twilight.

Following five Ya tentpoles in as many years, Lionsgate officially retired its lucrative film series – one based on Stephenie Meyer’s literary juggernaut – with the launch of Breaking Dawn – Part 2. That was four years ago and since then, Twihards have quietly hung on to the hope that Bella and the Cullen clan would return to the big screen at some point down the line.

And though the franchise’s future is still largely uncertain, when pressed on the matter, Wachsberger admitted that there’s “a possibility” that Lionsgate could one day »

Could more ‘Twilight’ sequels be on the way?

26 September 2016 11:40 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

More Twilight sequels could be on the way from Lionsgate, four years after the last movie The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 debuted in cinemas.

Speaking to Screen Daily, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group co-chairman Patrick Wachsberger was quoted in saying that there could be a way of returning to the saga, despite all of the current run of books already been made into movies.

“It’s a possibility,” Wachsberger said. “Not a certainty but it’s a possibility. It’s about Stephenie [novelist Stephenie Meyer]. If she wants to tell a story related to those characters we’re here for her.”

The entire Twilight saga, which of course starred Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, has made an impressive $3.3 billion at the worldwide box-office across the four movies – that last movie along made over $800 million – so it’s now a surprise that Lionsgate would back any future novels being adapted for the big screen. »

Hell or High Water movie review: there will be blood

13 September 2016 8:35 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take…

Alongside plenty of heist-movie humor and suspense is a bleak fatalism grounded in depressing reality and resignation to the miserable necessity it demands. I’m “biast” (pro): love the cast, love the filmmakers

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

The phrase “come hell or high water” is almost always used in the hypothetical. As an exaggeration of the obstacles to be faced. “I will meet you for a drink after work come hell or high water,” and a printer jam or a late deadline is the level of catastrophe to be overcome.

But in Hell or High Water, the catastrophe has already happened. Hell and (metaphorical) high water have come and gone, and there’s still life to be gotten on with. It has happened in slow motion, but it’s been deliberate: a way of life, »
