Analyzing The Summer 2016 Box Office Slump

17 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

We look at the data around this subpar summer.

Summer is the perfect time for massive blockbusters to hit theaters and rake in the cash. School is out, the days are longer and hotter, and the movie theaters offer a cool and relaxing escape. Except, 2016’s summer offerings have been pretty underwhelming, both critically and financially. People weren’t exactly lining up to score tickets to one of the many dismal sequels released this summer (looking at you Alice Through the Looking Glass) and even the critical hits (The Shallows, anyone?) failed to connect with audiences. Box office returns are down 22% compared to where we were this time last year. comScore box office analyst Paul Dergarabedian said that “there is no question that the summer of 2016 thus far has been a bit of a bummer, with the underperformers outnumbering the over-performers.” Ouch.

So where have we seen the box office breakouts this year? Well »

Conan O’Brien on Why He’s Happy to Return to Comic-Con This Week While Everyone Else Gets Political

21 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As several of his competitors headed to Cleveland for the Republican National Convention this week, Conan O’Brien went the other direction.

O’Brien is back at San Diego Comic-Con to tape episodes of his TBS talk show this Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. It’s the second year in a row for “Conan” at the city’s historic Spreckles Theater, and the host told IndieWire he’s much happier to be here.

“Last year was such an instant realization that this is perfect for us,” he said. “There’s an overlap between our fans and people who would be here anyway at Comic-Con. We’ve been referencing these comic myths for the entire time that I’ve been on television. Even my whole look is comic book-y. I’ve always looked like I’ve been animated!”

Backlash Against Ghostbusters Doesn't Add Up

19 July 2016 4:59 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The level of hatred lobbied against 2016's Ghostbusters is enough to suggest that it should be an extremely controversial film, yet it is totally benign. What is really going on?

The trolls are taking over. Not long ago, they were restricted to just the comments section on posted articles, typically political in nature. And then, suddenly, everything became offensive to their tender little minds. Gradually, they took over the forums, spewing their judgemental rhetoric at anyone who threatened their sphere of fragile existence. Celebrities joined twitter to communicate with their fans, only to get lambasted by foul-mouthed keyboard jockeys. Suddenly the life choices of the famous were open for commentary by anyone with a smart phone and some free time. 

Everyone with an internet connection now feels that their opinions are more important than everyone else's’. There was GamerGate, and then video game developers received death threats for delays, and »

Recommended Discs & Deals: ‘Sing Street,’ ‘A Touch of Zen,’ ‘To Have and Have Not,’ and More

Night & Fog (Alain Resnais)

Ten years after the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps, filmmaker Alain Resnais documented the abandoned grounds of Auschwitz and Majdanek in Night and Fog (Nuit et brouillard), one of the first cinematic reflections on the Holocaust. Juxtaposing the stillness of the abandoned camps’ empty buildings with haunting wartime footage, Resnais investigates humanity’s capacity for violence, and presents the devastating suggestion that such horrors could occur again. – Criterion

How Stranger Things Evoked Familiar Things (E.T.! Goonies! Freddy!) While Delivering Fresh, Fun Thrills

19 July 2016 6:50 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Stranger Things were happening this past weekend for those who sampled and wound up bingeing all eight episodes of Netflix’s new drama series.

(Basic plotline/mild spoilers follow, until I announce otherwise. And I will announce otherwise.)

VideosStranger Things: Watch a Trailer for Winona Ryder Supernatural Drama

Created by brothers Matt and Ross Duffer (who cowrote a few episodes of Wayward Pines) and set in a small Indiana town circa 1983, Stranger Things revolves around the vanishing of a young boy, Will Byers , which comes on the heels of something escaping from a local, “secret” government lab lorded over by Dr. »

Don't expect Matt Damon to be particularly chatty in Jason Bourne

18 July 2016 7:46 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

There's a great history of movie characters who say very little and prefer to let their actions speak for them, recent examples include Tom Hardy in Mad Max: Fury Road, Henry Cavill in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and apparently, Matt Damon in Jason Bourne. Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon both sat down with The Guardian recently for a revealing interview about the Bourne franchise... Read More »

‘Stranger Things’ Finale: Duffer Brothers Talk Cliffhangers, Death and Season 2

18 July 2016 4:54 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

[Spoiler alert: The following interview covers plot details from the entire eight-episode first season of Netflix’s “Stranger Things.” Do not read until you’ve finished the season.]

The world got very strange indeed over the first eight episodes of Netflix’s “Stranger Things.” The ’80s-set and inspired series from creators-writers-directors The Duffer Brothers (twins Matt and Ross) solved its central mystery of exactly what happened to Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) — who was reunited with his mother, Joyce (Winona Ryder), and brother, Jonathan (Charlie Heaton), after spending a week in a parallel dimension known as the “Upside Down” — but raised plenty of other questions.

What happened to telekinetic badass Eleven (scene stealer Millie Bobby Brown) after she destroyed the Upside Down monster? Does Chief Hopper (David Harbour) know where she is, or is he leaving those Eggos in the woods in an attempt to reach her? What sent Nancy (Natalia Dyer) back into the arms of her boyfriend, Steve (Joe Keery)? Can Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) possibly have as much fun playing “Dungeons & Dragons” now that they’ve faced »

30 years ago today: ‘Aliens’ gave us the badass return of Ripley

18 July 2016 11:15 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

30 years ago today, Ripley returned, as badass as ever. On July 18, 1986, Aliens hit theaters, giving audiences a movie that kept the blossoming franchise fresh as it transitioned from sci-fi horror to sci-fi action. This time around, Ripley had a surrogate daughter to protect and a new alien queen to battle, while Sigourney Weaver had a producing credit and a bigger voice in the development of the James Cameron-directed sequel to the 1979 Ridley Scott movie. Ripley paved the way for future action heroines, including Furiosa of last year’s Mad Max: Fury Road. For a HitFix debate of which of the two is a better hero, check out this video. Aliens will get a 30th anniversary celebration at San Diego Comic-Con with a reunion of Cameron, Weaver, and more cast members. Also, announced today, the Comic-Con panel will be live-streamed and available to watch on YouTube inside our outside the convention center this Saturday. »

Our epic interview with Ivan Reitman looks to the past and the future for 'Ghostbusters'

17 July 2016 8:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When I first met Ivan Reitman, I was warned to be on my best behavior. I was an employee at Dave’s Video, a laserdisc retail store, and Reitman was one of the store’s most important customers. He, Steven Spielberg, and Danny DeVito all had a standing order. They wanted one of every title. Everything. If it came out, they owned it. Reitman’s assistants picked orders up frequently, but every now and then, he’d be the one that came in, sometimes with his teenage son Jason in tow. When he did come in, it was important that we keep him happy. He was one of the guys keeping the doors of that business open, and we absolutely went out of our way to make sure he got anything he wanted. He turned out to be far less scary than he'd been described when I finally helped him one afternoon, »

New to Streaming: ‘Sing Street,’ ‘Equals,’ ‘Belladonna of Sadness,’ ‘Mustang,’ and More

15 July 2016 7:22 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Belladonna of Sadness (Eiichi Yamamoto)

It all begins with Once Upon a Time. Such a simple introduction for Belladonna of Sadness, a 1973 Japanese animated feature whose newfound legacy includes a decades-long disappearance, a dramatic re-emergence, and a growing reputation as a frenzied, pornographic freakout. The final entry in anime elder statesman Osamu Tezuka‘s erotic Animerama trilogy has remained largely unknown to even the most die-hard cult cinephiles, »

On this day in pop culture history: ‘Die Hard’ opened in theaters

15 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

July 15, 1988 must have been the day to celebrate Christmas in July because it’s the day classic Christmas movie (don’t argue) Die Hard was gifted to us. 28 years after the Die Hard hit theaters, it’s difficult to accept that the movie’s great villain is gone, and it’s wild to think about the fact that this was his first Hollywood film role — Alan Rickman was in his first movie at age 42, which makes it all the more tragic that his life and career were cut short this year. Since 1988, Bruce Willis has made four more Die Hard movies. Meanwhile, director John McTiernan’s last completed film was 2003’s Basic, and these days he’s keeping busy bashing modern blockbusters, Captain America and Mad Max: Fury Road included.  Die Hard is available for purchase here on Fox Connect Other notable July 15 happenings in pop culture history: • 1963: The »

'Ghostbusters' Brings in $3.4M from Thursday Night Previews

14 July 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Friday AM Update: Sony's Ghostbusters reboot brought in an estimated $3.4 million from Thursday night previews. Green Lantern also kicked off its Thursday with $3.4 million before opening with $53.1 million, X-Men: First Class started with $3.37 million on Thursday and opened with $55 million and The Great Gatsby brought in $3.25 million and opened with $50 million. For director Paul Feig and star Melissa McCarthy that's an improvement over the last two R-rated collaborations, which saw Spy bring in $1.6 million on Thursday followed by a $29 million opening and The Heat, which brought in $1 million on Thursday and opened with $39.7 million. From a PG-13 perspective, a few other films that had similar Thursday performances include Pacific Rim ($3.6m Thursday, $37.2m opening), Independence Day: Resurgence ($4m/$41m), Warcraft ($3.1m/$24.1m) and San Andreas ($3.1m/$54.5m). Given the wide variety of comparisons it's tough to gain much insight, though an opening over $40 million still seems likely. We'll be back tomorrow with Friday estimates, »

First official images of Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey in The Dark Tower

14 July 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve seen a few spy photos from the set of The Dark Tower over the past couple of weeks [see here, here and here], but now thanks to Entertainment Weekly we’ve got our first official look at Idris Elba’s Roland Deschain and Matthew McConaughey’s Man in Black from the hotly-anticipated adaptation of Stephen King’s fantasy epic The Dark Tower. Take a look…

“When we meet Roland he’s a bit lost,” states Elba with regards to his role as The Gunslinger. “He’s been walking around for a long time, so he definitely feels like a man who’s… coiled. [He] has forgotten the face of his father. That’s a sense of, ‘You’ve forgotten your purpose.’ Until he meets [Jake Chambers], he doesn’t have anything to believe in, really. He’s really pent up and releases his soul through [defending] the boy.”

“Well, he is a man, actually,” replies McConaughey when asked about his villainous character, »

If 'Ghostbusters' is a flop, it won't be because of misogyny - it'll be because it's bad

13 July 2016 3:41 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Needless to say, Ghostbusters is one of the biggest question marks of the 2016 summer movie season. While reviews have been mainly positive (it currently boasts a 75% "Certified Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes) and the film is Fandango's "top pre-selling live-action comedy of the year to date," box office experts are generally wary of making opening-weekend predictions for a film that has been the subject of negative buzz and become a cultural lightning rod since it was first announced in 2014. "These films are usually 100% dependent on word-of-mouth, and [with] Ghostbusters, you really can't tell what word-of-mouth is legitimate, and what is coming from internet trolls trying to start a fire," said Box Office Media analyst Daniel Loria, referencing the misogyny-driven outrage around the reboot's all-woman main cast. "I have to be very careful of my instincts [on] Ghostbusters, because I think it's really hard to know," echoed The Numbers founder Bruce Nash, who »

The Breathless Love of the La La Land Trailer

13 July 2016 1:39 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Whiplash director Damien Chazelle is singing and dancing with Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone.

When you fall in love with someone it leaves you breathless, exhilarated, and longing. There is the undeniable chemistry you feel with that person. It’s electric. You can feel it. You look towards art to capture and imitate what you feel. Chemistry between actors can make or break what it is you are watching. Two of the actors that have mastered that distinctive spark between people in love are Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. They first appeared together in Crazy, Stupid, Love and were remarkably charismatic and charming. Then they were paired together in Gangster Squad. While the film was a dud, their chemistry was the bright spot that makes the film. Now, they are back playing lovers for a third time in La La Land, Damien Chazelle’s hotly anticipated second feature.
