Here’s the synopsis: “Rebecca Miller’s film is a portrait of her father, his times and insights, built around impromptu interviews shot over many years in the family home. This celebration of the great American playwright is quite different from what the public has ever seen. It is a close consideration of a singular life shadowed by the tragedies of the Red Scare and the death of Marilyn Monroe; a bracing look at success and failure in the public eye; an honest accounting of human frailty; a »

Alien: Covenant Barely Gets Box Office Win Over Guardians of the Galaxy 2

21 May 2017 1:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As expected, Marvel's box office blockbuster sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 had no trouble taking care of business in its first two weeks at the box office. In its third frame this weekend, though, it was expected to be a close race between Guardians 2 and 20th Century Fox's Alien: Covenant, and this weekend's box office race most certainly delivered. It was in fact a very close race, with Alien: Covenant coming out on top with $36 million, with Guardians of the Galaxy 2 following close behind with $35 million. Since these movies are so close together, it's possible that they could swap spots on the charts when the actual numbers are released.

This opening weekend tally is far below the $51 million debut of 2012's Prometheus, with this Alien prequel, set 10 years after the events of Prometheus. The prequel Prometheus was see as quite the disappointment to many fans ,but Alien: Covenant »

Can Alien: Covenant Burst Through Guardians 2 at the Box Office?

16 May 2017 10:13 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel's blockbuster sequel Guardians of the Galaxy 2 had no trouble destroying its box office competition last weekend with $65.2 million, up slightly over the Sunday estimate of $63 million, and posting a 55.5% decrease from last weekend's $145 million debut. The sequel wasn't given any real competition by the underperforming Snatched ($19.5 million) and King Arthur: Legend of the Sword ($15.3 million), but this weekend, it faces its toughest challenge yet, with 20th Century Fox's Alien: Covenant, along with the studio's family-friendly sequel Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul and Warner Bros.' Everything, Everything. We're predicting that the R-rated Alien: Covenant should have no trouble taking the top spot this weekend, with an estimated $39.6 million.

This figure does come in far below the $51 million debut of 2012's Prometheus, but there are a number of factors as to why it may come in below its predecessor. Prometheus was seen as quite the disappointment »

Excalibur From ‘King Arthur’ and Other Iconic Swords in Film

14 May 2017 9:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” gallops into theaters this weekend, even if no one is showing up to see it.

While there have been at least a half dozen versions of the King Arthur legend brought to film — including the 1981 “Excalibur” that helped launched the careers of Liam Neeson and Helen Mirren and the 2004 version with Keira Knightley — one staple has been the legendary sword in the stone, Excalibur.

Film Review: ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

This latest version features Charlie Hunnam as Arthur, an orphan raised by prostitutes. Only after pulling the sword from the stone does he begin to learn of his heritage and his power.

Swords have played a major role in other iconic films, notable “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” trilogies. But they don’t all come from the world of fantasy or European mythology.

Manager and producer J.C. Spink, who founded Benderspink with Chis Bender and produced comedies like “The Hangover,” died Tuesday at his home in West Hollywood, the Los Angeles County Coroner confirmed to Variety. He was 45.

Spink was found unresponsive in his home by his brother and pronounced dead at 8:18 p.m. on Tuesday, according to the coroner. A cause of death has not yet been revealed. An autopsy will be conducted, and he appeared to have died of natural causes. Foul play is not currently suspected.

“I loved this kid from the time she was born,” Bacharach told Variety.”We thought we were dealing with adolescent behavioral problems. Had I understood what it was, and what she was dealing with, if somebody had told me, I wish it could have been better,” he said.
