San Andreas opens to $113 million worldwide

1 June 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

San Andreas has certainly been no disaster at the box office, having opened to an impressive $113 million worldwide.

The blockbuster movie, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, opened in 60 markets around the globe and shot to the number one position domestically with $53.1 million (knocking Tomorrowland from the top spot) and added another $60 million from its international screenings. This is the biggest non-Fast and Furious or G.I. Joe opening for Dwayne Johnson, who many thought wasn’t able to helm a money making movie after the failure of Hercules last year.

San Andreas‘ $53.1 million is also way ahead of its predicted take of $40 million.

Clooney pic rocked by earthquake

31 May 2015 7:42 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

The combination of George Clooney, a dual Oscar-winning director and an astronomical budget hasn.t paid off for Tomorrowland, least of all in Australia where Disney.s mystery-adventure was shaken by San Andreas last weekend.

In other B.O. news, global receipts for Mad Max: Fury Road climbed to $US281 million after its third weekend, including an estimated $116 million in the Us and $165 million in the rest of the world.

Ariel Kleiman.s debut feature Partisan had a quiet opening in Oz on 14 screens, despite an extensive social media campaign orchestrated by Madman Entertainment.

Directed by Brad Peyton (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island), disaster pic San Andreas seized the top spot in Australia, grabbing $3.2 million. Pro-rata, that was well below the weekend Us opening of $US54.6 million, perhaps because Dwayne Johnson is a bigger drawcard at home than here.

Weekend Report - 'San Andreas' Rocks With $53M

31 May 2015 7:33 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

[Update] Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson proved he can open a tentpole film all by his not-so-little lonesome with San Andreas's estimated, beefy $54.6M domestic take. That $14K per theater average, in 3,777 venues, was much better than the predicted $40M for the Warner Bros. disaster flick. 44% of that was attributed to 3D and, with an A- CinemaScore, it looks like the film will have domestic box-office aftershocks for some weeks to come. But the U.S wasn't the only place that the tremors were felt. Overseas, in 60 markets, San Andreas ranked #1 in 55 of those markets, opening with an international cume of $60M (on 14.5k screens) resulting in a worldwide cume of $113.2M.The real winner in this story, however, is Johnson. San Andreas is the best opening for him where he was not part of an ensemble, such as the Fast and Furious or the G.I. Joe flicks. Last year's »

‘San Andreas’ Set to Rock Box Office with $47 Million Debut, ‘Aloha’ Left in the Dust

30 May 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros.’ “San Andreas” is no box office disaster, with the 3D action film drawing $18.2 million on Friday, setting it on track for a projected weekend haul of $47 million at 3,777 locations and smashing past early estimates that put it around the $40 million mark. Cameron Crowe’s “Aloha,” meanwhile, was left in the dust, eyeing a modest $10-11 million weekend after a slow Friday that drew approximately $3.6 million at 2,815 sites.

Critics may not be giving “San Andreas” points for its brains, but the Dwayne Johnson film is certainly demonstrating its brawn — its strong performance is the best of Johnson’s career outside the “Fast & Furious” franchise, handily beating the opening weekend haul for “Hercules” ($29.8 million), “Pain and Gain” ($20.2 million) and “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” ($40.5 million).

There’s still a chasm between “San Andreas” and the opening weekend tallies for Roland Emmerich’s similarly cataclysmic movies, “The Day After Tomorrow” ($68.7 million) and “2012” ($65.2 million »

‘San Andreas’ Heads for $40 Million-Plus Opening, ‘Aloha’ Eyes $12 Million

29 May 2015 1:14 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Dwayne Johnson’s disaster drama “San Andreas” is anything but a disaster, dominating moviegoing at the U.S. box office with early projections showing a $40 million-plus opening weekend.

The opening of Sony’s “Aloha” is likely to finish the frame at around $12 million, or the mid-range of recent forecasts that have been tamped down as negative buzz surrounds the rom-com — despite the star power of Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams.

San Andreas” showed respectable drawing power with $3.1 million in latenight shows Thursday, while “Aloha” arrived with a meek $500,000 at 2,275 locations in preview showings. Early Friday estimates showed a $16 million opening day for “San Andreas,” which is playing at 3,777 locations, and a Friday total of $4.5 million for “Aloha” at 2,815 site.

Warner Bros.’ 3D “San Andreas” is arriving with an easy-to-understand premise — a mega-earthquake and aftershock clobber California, forcing Johnson’s helicopter pilot character to scramble to rescue his daughter, »

What The Rock’s Been Cooking: A Dwayne Johnson Retrospective

29 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The key moment in the acting career of Dwayne Johnson is an obvious one that occurs not very long into The Rundown, the 2003 adventure film that paired him with the intermittently watchable Seann William Scott. As Johnson’s character, a “retrieval expert”, walks into a club to collect one of his charges, Arnold Schwarzenegger, playing himself for all we know, tips his hat to Johnson and simply says, “Have fun.” It’s a blessing, first of all, from the undisputed king of action film braggadocio, but as delivered by the Terminator himself, it’s also a warning, a reminder to not take the blows of his career too seriously, especially in an arduous career that will likely involve getting critically lambasted on the regular despite being popular as all get out. The funny thing is that Johnson has never seemed to struggle in his career, even when his talents have »

Box Office: ‘San Andreas’ Shakes Up $3.1 Million Thursday Night

29 May 2015 7:22 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Dwayne Johnson’s “San Andreas” has opened with $3.1 million in latenight shows Thursday in the U.S., portending a solid weekend launch for the disaster drama.

Cameron Crowe’s “Aloha” generated a modest $500,000 at 2,275 locations in preview showings on Thursday night, in line with expectations that the Sony comedy-drama will open with in a range of $8 million to $12 million.

Warner Bros.’ 3D “San Andreas,” depicting a massive earthquake in California, is expected to take first place by a wide margin this weekend with about $40 million at 3,777 locations. Village Roadshow Pictures co-financed and co-produced “San Andreas” with Warners for $110 million with much of the movie shot in Australia to take advantage of government incentives.

Johnson plays a helicopter pilot seeking his daughter — portrayed by Alexandra Daddario — in the aftermath of the mega-quake. “San Andreas” is directed by Brad Peyton, who also helmed Johnson in New Line’s “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. »

San Andreas Review

29 May 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Ah yes, the summer movie season. Time to park our brains in the cinema foyer and enter into the popcorn filled darkness to enjoy some special effects wizardry and some cool actors in peril. It’s unfortunate then that in a time when real life events overshadow those created by Hollywood, such a venture makes for an empty experience where no amount of crumbling skyscrapers can make up for a script that has enough jarring lines and hammy dialogue to fill the fault line ten times over. Director Brad Peyton, who previously worked with Dwayne Johnson on Journey 2: The Mysterious Island opens the film promisingly enough with a nail-biting ravine rescue.  Johnson proves he’s got the mettle to handle any crisis as Ray, an La Fire Department Search and Rescue helicopter pilot. When the San Andreas Fault triggers a 9 plus magnitude quake up the West coast, he and »

Exclusive Video Interview: Brad Peyton Talks Reuniting With Dwayne Johnson In San Andreas

28 May 2015 9:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Opening in theaters this week is San Andreas, which was directed by Brad Peyton (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island) and follows the aftermath of a massive earthquake in California, and a rescue-chopper pilot (Dwayne Johnson) that makes a dangerous journey across the state in order to rescue his estranged daughter (Alexandra Daddario).

Full of everything you’d expect from a big summer blockbuster, the film delivers a wildly entertaining ride, with our own Matt Donato calling it the “epitome of a summer blockbuster with plenty of eye-popping industrial carnage to behold” in his review.

A few weeks ago during the Los Angeles press day for San Andreas, we sat down with Peyton for an exclusive interview to speak about why the film is not a disaster movie, what he liked about the script, and reuniting with Dwayne Johnson.

Brad Peyton interview: San Andreas, The Rock, Statham, Star Wars

28 May 2015 1:19 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The San Andreas director on working with Dwayne Johnson, family dynamics in movies, and of course, Jason Statham...

Brad Peyton is one happy and enthusiastic man and, has every reason to be. Having worked his way up from making short films and with only two feature length films on his CV (Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island) he’s now helmed San Andreas, a solid and spectacular slice of disaster movie mayhem and the biggest movie of his career.

San Andreas isn’t just big in terms of effects though, as it stars Mr Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson as the heroic rescue pilot on a one man mission to save his family from a disastrous earthquake. Marking the second collaboration between Messrs Johnson and Peyton after the joyously surreal and insane surprise that was Journey 2, the two find themselves on more serious territory, »

'San Andreas': What the Critics Are Saying

28 May 2015 11:33 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

When a massive earthquake hits California, a rescue-helicopter pilot (Dwayne Johnson) makes a dangerous journey from Los Angeles to San Francisco to save his estranged daughter (Alexandra Daddario) in San Andreas.  The film reunites Johnson and director Brad Peyton, who worked together on 2012's Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, and also features Carla Gugino, Paul Giamatti and Ioan Gruffudd, with a screenplay written by Lost's Carlton Cuse.  Opening opposite the Cameron Crowe-directed romantic comedy Aloha (and coupled with Tomorrowland's less-than-stellar opening last weekend), San Andreas is projected to earn the top spot this weekend without too much competition.

'San Andreas' (2015) Movie Review

28 May 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Has it ever occurred to studios and filmmakers that if they were to simply snip 10-15 minutes of forced tension from their "disaster porn" blockbusters it would not only tighten their narrative, but improve the level of enjoyment and save them several millions of dollarsc In the case of San Andreas, buildings would still fall, the Earth's surface would still roll, Paul Giamatti would still survive while his subordinates die, Alexandre Daddario would still fit nicely in a tank top and Dwayne Johnson would still be required to perform feats of strength to save those he loves. Win-win... rightc After all, it isn't as if San Andreas is all that different from any other movie of this sort. Destruction on a large scale (Los Angeles, San Francisco and Bakersfield are laid to waste), characters narrowly escaping a variety of un-escapable situations, fingertip survival, the "He left me!" moment and the »

San Andreas movie review: 9.6 on the Ridiculous Scale

28 May 2015 4:48 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Cornball disaster-porn melodrama… in 3D! Dumb, insulting, and bloodless. It’s Hollywood’s subconscious death wish brought to life, in more ways than one. I’m “biast” (pro): like Dwayne Johnson, love Paul Giamatti

I’m “biast” (con): not enamored of disaster movies

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

San Andreas opens with a truly spectacular helicopter rescue of a woman whose car has plunged down a ravine near the Southern California coast. It’s nothing to do with the Big One about to strike the region (although maybe we’re meant to infer that the rockfall that pushed her off the road was a foreshock of the quake to come). It’s just another day at the office for Los Angeles Fire Department search-and-rescue pilot and all-around daredevil badass-in-the-name-of-good Ray and his crew.

The scene is visually dazzling — and not like anything we’ve seen before! »

Afm Accuses Movie Studios of Bilking Musicians on Reused Music

27 May 2015 4:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The American Federation of Musicians of the United States and Canada has accused the six major studios of reusing film soundtrack clips without compensating musicians — including music from “Beauty and the Beast” and “Titanic.”

Afm filed a lawsuit Tuesday in federal court in Los Angeles seeking a jury trial and damages for all losses, including prejudgment interest.

“Our agreements obligate the studios to make additional payments to musicians when soundtracks are reused, and Afm members are entitled to receive the benefit of that bargain,” said Afm International president Ray Hair. “Our efforts to resolve these contract violations and missing payments have been unproductive, so we are looking to the courts for relief.”

The union’s lawsuit specifically charges Columbia, Paramount, 20th Century Fox, Universal, Walt Disney and Warner Bros. with allegedly reusing previously recorded film soundtracks in violation of Afm’s collective bargaining agreement with the studios. A spokesman for »

Composer Andrew Lockington Goes For Epic Seismic Sounds In San Andreas Soundtrack

26 May 2015 11:29 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Composer Andrew Lockington scores Warner Bros.Pictures’ disaster thriller San Andreas.

Directed by Brad Peyton, the film follows a search and rescue pilot (Dwayne Johnson) and his estranged wife (Carla Gugino) as they make their way from Los Angeles to San Francisco to save their only daughter after the infamous San Andreas Fault gives, triggering a magnitude 9-plus earthquake in California.

Director Brad Peyton turned to Lockington, his frequent collaborator, at the earliest possible point in the film’s production. Peyton explains, “The way I like to build the world is to look at the tone and the music. For ‘San Andreas,’ the question was how to create an original, epic and very emotional score, so we just dove in and started playing around to find the themes and the vibe of this movie.”

Thn Help The Rock Break World Record At ‘San Andreas’ Premiere

22 May 2015 3:22 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Despite being set in California, the world premiere of San Andreas took place in London last night. With the sun shining and shades galore, every single person at the premiere, including the press, was there for one man, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, but we’ll get to him later. The majority of the principal cast showed up including some people I had never heard of before like Morgan Griffin, Alec Utgoff and Art Parkinson (apparently he’s in Game of Thrones, I should really start watching that). But there were some faces I did recognise. One of which was Kylie Minogue, who has a small cameo in the film. Sadly I wasn’t able to talk to her, but the chance to see her in person was really cool and I have confirmation that she is really tiny. Carla Gugino, who plays Emma in the film, was also in attendance »
