March 2017 Is First $1 Billion March in Domestic Box Office History

13 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

March saw the openings of “Beauty and the Beast” and “Logan,” among other tentpoles, catapulting this month to be the first $1 billion March in domestic box office history. Disney’s live-action remake of the 1991 classic, on its own, opened to $170 million and has since grossed $319 million domestically and is expected to hit $1 billion globally soon. Fox’s “Logan,” starring Hugh Jackman in his final stint as The Wolverine, opened to $88.4 million and has since grossed $201 million domestically. And other tentpole films “Kong: Skull Island,” “Power Rangers” and “Ghost in the Shell” contributed largely to give »

Logan Slashes Its Way Past $200 Million at Us Box Office

26 March 2017 2:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As sad as it is for many of us to see Hugh Jackman hang up the claws and retire the role of Wolverine, audiences have made it clear that they love to watch him leave. Logan has been raking it in at the box office all month and now, the movie has just crossed another milestone. The third and final solo Wolverine movie with Hugh Jackman playing the iconic mutant has just crossed $200 million at the domestic box office.

According to Box Office Mojo, Logan, as of this writing, has made $201.45 million at the domestic box office alone. That puts it well above the other two solo Wolverine movies and when all's said and done, Logan could wind up getting close to the worldwide total of X-Men Origins: Wolverine domestically. That is pretty impressive and is likely to make the folks over at Fox very happy. But, perhaps more importantly, »

X-Men: what's the best order to watch the movies in?

26 March 2017 7:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Juliette Harrisson Mar 27, 2017

There are various ways to tackle the X-Men movies. Here are our suggestions...

It happens so often in Sff fandoms. You have a series, it starts out releasing an original story, then some sequels, then... it all goes a bit wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey, whether through the release of prequels, through introducing a time-travel element to the story that confuses the order of the narrative, or other various narrative shenanigans.

The viewing order of the X-Men film series is especially complicated. The series includes prequels, at least two different timelines, and more internal inconsistencies than you can shake an adamantium-or-bone claw at. So, with the Hugh Jackman/Patrick Stewart era coming to a close with Logan, we thought we’d suggest a few different options for approaches to an X-Men movie marathon. None of these suggested viewing orders are intended to be definitive and, thanks to the determined lack of internal consistency in the series, »

Chris Evans On His Future In McU: ‘I’m Not Going To Sit Here And Say, ‘No More’’

24 March 2017 7:06 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Every so often we get to this point in an actor’s contract where the future seemed uncertain. Following Iron Man 3, it became clear that Marvel Cinematic Universe poster boy Robert Downey Jr was approaching the end of his contract, and there was a lot of speculation that this could be the end. Given that Downey ended up in Captain America: Civil War, and that he’ll be around at least through Avengers 4, it’s clear that renegotiations are always up for discussion.

The same can be said of Chris Evans. This was an actor who initially seemed unsure and uncomfortable in the role of Captain America. While the first film did well enough, it by no means catapulted his character to the forefront of everyone’s favorites list. That wouldn’t come until Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and it’s around that time that Evans seemed to »

EW Review: Life Keeps the Audience on Edge Until the Last Scene — but It’s No Alien

23 March 2017 3:36 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

As much as it wants to be, the new deep-space thriller Life is no Alien. Then again, what is? What could be? When Ridley Scott directed his 1979 no one-can-hear-you-scream masterpiece, there were still rules to break and boundaries to push. He giddily broke and pushed all of them, combining what were dismissed as two distinct and disreputable gutter genres (science fiction and horror) and fusing them into one glorious chest-bursting hybrid. You could be intelligent and graphically gooey at the same time. Who knew? In fact, it was possible that by doing so you could even approach something like art. »

Logan director James Mangold blasts tentpole movies

22 March 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Logan continues to ride the wave of critical and commercial success (it has now passed the $500 million mark at the worldwide box office), director James Mangold had some brutally honest choice words for the less refreshing and not so ambitious tentpole releases.

Speaking to Kcrw (via CinemaBlend) about franchise fatigue, Mangold sounded off, stating that: “Tentpole movies in general … they are not movies, generally. They are bloated exercises in two-hour trailers for another movie they are going to sell you in two years. There are so many characters that each character gets an arc of about six-and-a-half minutes at best, and I’m not exaggerating. You take 120 minutes, you take 45 of it for action, what are you left with, divide it by six characters, you have the character arc of Elmer Fudd in a Warner Brothers cartoon. That formula is empty for me.”

Do you agree with Mangold’s assessment on tentpole movies? »

Logan Crosses $500 Million at the Worldwide Box Office

20 March 2017 6:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Logan only had a brief one-time run atop the box office a few weeks ago, Hugh Jackman's final Wolverine movie is still going strong, passing another box office milestone over the weekend. While it dropped to third place with $17.8 million, that domestic take and its international tally were enough to push it over the $500 million worldwide box office plateau. The movie currently stands at $183.4 million domestic and $339.3 million from international markets, for a worldwide tally of $523.6 million, from a $97 million budget.

Box Office Mojo also has an interesting breakdown of the Wolverine franchise, comparing Logan to Hugh Jackman's other two stand-alone Wolverine movies, 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine and 2013's The Wolverine, neither of which achieved the kind of critical and commercial success that Logan has already achieved. After just three weeks in theaters, Logan has already surpassed the domestic, foreign and worldwide totals for both X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine. »

Jay Baruchel praises Batman v Superman as “the world’s most expensive indie film”

20 March 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Actor and comedian Jay Baruchel is currently doing interviews to promote his upcoming sequel Goon: Last of the Enforcers, which is a project he directs and stars in.

During an interview with Joblo, Baruchel was put on the spot to discuss some recent films he has really enjoyed. In addition to mentioning Tom Ford’s noirish thriller Nocturnal Animals (which he described as “gorgeous and compelling”), he bravely brought up the critically destroyed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Baruchel praised the blockbuster, saying: “I’ve watched it about seven times… even when I saw the theatrical one and didn’t love it. In its weakest moment, it has more choice, style and commitment to it than the best moment in Captain America: Civil War. I can’t tell you what it’s about or who made it. You watch Batman v Superman you know exactly what it’s about »

Logan crosses the half billion dollar mark at the worldwide box office

19 March 2017 1:38 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may have found itself slipping down the charts these past couple of weeks thanks to Beauty and the Beast and Kong: Skull Island, but 20th Century Fox’s latest X-Men offering Logan continues to pull in the cash at the box office, having crossed the half billion dollar mark this weekend.

Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine swansong is now sitting on $524 million globally, having grossed $184 million domestically and a further $340 million from international markets.

Logan is now the highest-grossing Wolverine movie (with The Wolverine on $414.8 million and X-Men Origins: Wolverine on $373.1 million), and the fourth-highest grossing chapter of the entire X-Men franchise behind X-Men: Apocalypse on $543.9 million.

Deadpool remains the biggest earner in the franchise, having pulled in $783.1 million last year, while X-Men: Days of Future Past sits in second place with $747.9 million.

In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. »

‘Logan’ Director James Mangold To Helm Cop Drama ‘The Force’

17 March 2017 6:27 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Before jumping into the “X-Men” film universe with “The Wolverine” and, most recently, “Logan,” director James Mangold got his start making films that are completely different than comic book superhero fare. One of his first movies was the gritty police/crime drama “Cop Land” starring Sylvester Stallone and an all-star cast. Now, fresh off the huge success of “Logan,” Mangold is going back to his roots with his next film.

‘Logan’s’ James Mangold to Direct Fox’s NYPD Drama ‘The Force’

16 March 2017 4:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Logan” director James Mangold is in negotiations with Fox to develop and direct an adaptation of Don Winslow’s upcoming novel “The Force” about corrupt NYPD officers.

The talks with Mangold are taking place six months after Fox bought the movie rights to the crime thriller and set it up with Ridley Scott to produce through his Fox-based Scott Free company.

Fox’s sister company HarperCollins Publishers’ imprint William Morrow will release the new novel in June, which centers on a corrupt sergeant at the NYPD’s most elite crime-fighting unit who must choose between his family, his partners, and his life. Michael Schaefer and Shane Salerno are producing with Scott.

Logan receives a Beauty and the Beast-inspired TV spot

16 March 2017 2:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Logan enters the third week of its theatrical run, it is set to face some pretty steep competition in the form of Disney’s live-action remake of beloved animated masterpiece Beauty and the Beast – and that’s not even factoring in last week’s release of Kong: Skull Island.

As such, 20th Century Fox has released a new TV spot for Logan advising moviegoers to skip the beauty and come see the beast. Check it out below…

It will be interesting to see how well the more recent blockbusters hold up this weekend against Beauty and the Beast despite its currently mixed critical reception. Get Out will likely also contain another ridiculously strong but well-deserved hold.

Hugh Jackman Wanted Logan to Have a Different Ending

14 March 2017 5:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Those who have seen Logan know that Hugh Jackman is going out on top. After playing the part of Wolverine for nearly two decades he is hanging up the claws, but he is leaving behind a legacy that will be nearly impossible to ever top. Part of the reason that Logan has been received so well is that perfect ending. But according to Hugh Jackman, the ending was almost quite different.

Warning: this post will contain major spoilers for Logan. While speaking with Yahoo, Hugh Jackman revealed that he didn't want things to go the way they did. He was at least open to the idea of Wolverine not dying at the end of the movie, but the idea was being thrown around from the very beginning. Here is what he had to say about it.

"It was always floated that Logan would possibly die. I said, 'Let's be open, »

James Mangold Finally Explains Why Caliban Appeared In Both Logan And X-Men: Apocalypse

14 March 2017 4:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Trying to figure out the timeline of the X-Men Universe requires a genius level Iq and a lot of patience, and where Logan fits into things is hard to say. It seems to reference X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a movie wiped out of continuity by X-Men: Days of Future Past, while also loosely tying into both that and The Wolverine.

Confused, yet? Well, one thing which fans have been questioning for a while now is how and why Stephen Merchant could be Caliban after Tómas Lemarquis played the same character – a good 50 or so years earlier in history terms – during the events of X-Men: Apocalypse. Thankfully, Logan director James Mangold has now offered an explanation, but those of you hoping for one which will make sense of this muddled timeline will probably be disappointed by what he has to say.

Logan Has Become The Highest Grossing Movie Of 2017 Worldwide

12 March 2017 8:13 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While both X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine were moderate hits, Logan has so far exceeded expectations. That’s particularly impressive considering the fact its R-rating cuts off a huge chunk of the audience, and is arguably further proof that moviegoers have an interest in superhero films which come in all forms.

It’s also an approach which is paying off for 20th Century Fox in a big way, especially as Kingsman: The Secret Service and Deadpool were also critical and commercial hits. Going back to Logan, though, and the movie has today become the highest grossing release of 2017 worldwide. That’s an impressive feat and one which you have to imagine has left studio execs wishing Hugh Jackman had stuck around for a sequel. If nothing else though, it at least makes that X-23 spinoff a very real possibility.

Logan has so far pulled in a total of $438.3 million, »
