Box office report 2012: Film industry climbs to record-breaking $10.8 billion

31 December 2012 9:38 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The economy may be teetering on the edge of a fiscal cliff, but such dire financial woes were nowhere to be found at the box office in 2012. Over the past 365 days, Americans spent many of their hard-earned dollars at the movies — paying to see everything from Channing Tatum’s abs to a foul-mouthed talking teddy bear, and as a result, the box office had its best* year ever.

Movie theaters sold an estimated $10.84 billion worth of tickets domestically in 2012, beating the previous record of $10.59 billion set in 2009 (when Avatar led a late-December surge), and marking a new record in terms »

The 3rd Yearual Junkfood Cinema Awards

30 December 2012 2:00 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Welcome back to Junkfood Cinema; eat it, Mayans! Eat it with cheese! Yes, despite our best efforts, we’ve managed to survive another year and therefore it is once again time, in clear defiance of your best interest or our lawyer’s behests, for the Junkfood Cinema Awards. This year’s Junkies marks the third anniversary…of Film School Rejects’ editors proving monumentally lax in their duties. This year, we’ve rolled up our sleeves (because of the gravy stains) and dug deep into our own 2012  archives to craft a host of new and exciting (read: meaningless) categories for which let’s face it, there could only really have been one winner. And the winners are… …not going to like being associated with this column. Best Imitation of a Real Movie: Battleship As giant, idiotic sci-fi blockbusters go, Battleship is that. However, it is also multiple thats. It actually infuses the DNA from several knuckle-dragging, smarts-free »

The Top 10 Box Office Worst Movies Of 2012

28 December 2012 11:58 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

There’s a statement made by screenwriter William Goldman about the movie business: ‘Nobody knows nothing.’

Bearing this in mind, here’s a list of ten films in 2012 whose box office returns left a  studio decision-makers scratching their heads on their miserable year in order of domestic gross totals.

10. John Carter, $73 million

Buena Vista

The big-budget movie had a disappointing opening weekend, and none of its elements clicked with the public. Despite making a global gross of nearly $283 million, it didn’t even come close to earning $100 milion in the Us alone after a four-month run.

9. Battleship, $65.2 million

Universal

Battleship was no John Carter at the weekend box office, but opened with a miserable $25 million. Starring the same actor, Taylor Kitsch, perhaps one of these movies needed a bigger name. However, it’s best not to rely on Rihanna.

8. The Three Stooges, $44.3 million

Fox

The Three Stooges should be doing »

Top Ten Worst Movies of 2012 (That I Saw)

27 December 2012 8:39 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I don't go see every movie. I do my best to see as many as I can, but there are some I just don't feel I need to see in order to do my job. Those I tend to skip are films I'm quite certain I will not enjoy because what need is there, really, for me to head into a movie in a foul mood, with little enthusiasm to review a movie? Especially if said movie is the reason my mood is so foul. That said, sometimes the job takes you places you would prefer not to go and sometimes those movies you don't expect to be very good are movies you need to go see. Such films found their way onto this list. Some of the other entries are simply films I wanted to be good, films that piqued my curiosity or just thought would be fun. They weren't. »

What cinema showed us in 2012

26 December 2012 11:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Visions of the American apocalypse, camp tough guys, and teen stars ruining their clean-cut reputations … it's been quite a year on the big screen

Wrecked America

Sure, the Mayans were wrong, but turns out we're off to hell in a handcart anyway. From Beasts of the Southern Wild to Bombay Beach, Killing Them Softly to The Queen of Versailles, Hollywood took us on a guided tour of a land blighted by ecological and economic collapse. Be sure to stop in at the gift shop on your way out.

Dogs in peril

Last year was vintage for big-screen mutts, with pooches stealing the show on The Artist, and making the posters for Hugo and Young Adult. Call it karma, then, that 2012 has metaphorically drowned Uggie's puppies. Bonnie the shih tzu was snatched in Seven Psychopaths, Poppy the terrier abducted in Sightseers. But they get off lightly compared with Fanny the springer spaniel in The Hunt. »

The Worst Movies of 2012

26 December 2012 9:30 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

You're going to need an extra big mop to clean up this mess: Peter Travers is here with the stinkiest scum bucket of them all as he runs down the worst movies of 2012. But before we get to the films themselves, Travers dishes out some awards, including worst technical innovation to The Hobbit's controversial 48-frames per second; worst luck for an actor to Taylor Kitsch who made turns in turds like John Carter and Savages; and while Rihanna picks up worst actress for her debut role in Battleship, worst actor »

Thn’s 2012 Rundown – May & June

20 December 2012 3:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

As spring bled into summer, we saw the release of the year’s most gargantuan mainstream hit. It was The Avengers (aka Avengers Assemble), in case you spent the last year roaming the arctic regions of Greenland; and even then, an amiable Inuit with a Hulk hoodie probably told you about it.   

May

The long awaited release of The Avengers saw cinema-goers turn out in droves. It was seven years in the making, and many hardcore fans had been waiting far longer than that, so thankfully, the majority were not left disappointed. Otherwise, who knows what level of extreme backlash could have erupted… although millions of geeks acutely describing their grievances in a respectful manner on film forums would have been the most likely scenario. Our very own Dan was delighted by what he saw, and described it as being ‘utterly stimulating, satisfyingly scripted and damn right faultless big screen entertainment. »

The James Clayton Column: 2012 - the mirrorverse movie year

20 December 2012 3:12 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature James Clayton Dec 21, 2012

With 2012 drawing to a close, James looks back over the year's movies - as seen from a strange alternate universe...

So 2012, then. Helluva ride, huh? I saw many films and some of them were films within films and films about films and now we’ve all ended up in a disaster movie of our own at the arrival of the Mayan apocalypse that Mel Gibson warned us about way back when. We didn’t even get to enjoy Christmas.

Never mind though. Before Jaguar Paw came screaming out of the Mesoamerican rainforest and we all perished as doomsday struck, we watched some brilliant movies. The past calendar year has been packed with superb cinematic releases, and looking back from the other side of oblivion, I see that we were spoiled.

Unfortunately, from this standpoint on the flipside of forever, I can’t actually see the old timeline of reality. »

104 Scores in the Race for Best Original Score at the Oscars

11 December 2012 5:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Oscars are a little over two months away, and with so many fantastic films released throughout this year, the anticipation surrounding the announcement of the nominations next month is running on high.

So far, we’ve had the shortlists for the Best Animated Feature, the Best Visual Effects, and the Best Documentary categories.

Now the Academy has announced the list of 104 films that are eligible in the Best Original Score category, and it’s going to be very interesting to see what makes the final cut come nominations time next month.

I think Hans Zimmer’s score for The Dark Knight Rises is, hopefully, a lock, because it is amazing. I also loved James Horner’s score for The Amazing Spider-Man, but can’t decide whether or not I think it will earn a nomination.

Alexandre Desplat has three films in the running this year, with Argo, Rise of the Guardians, »

Some Thoughts on the 104 Original Scores Competing for 2013 Oscar Nominations

10 December 2012 3:37 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As far as I'm concerned, the two most memorable scores of the year belong to Cloud Atlas and Beasts of the Southern Wild. That said, I made an egregious and unforgivable mistake when filling out my Critics' Choice nominations and forgot to include not one of them, but Both of them! Shame. I feel it. Now I have to hope my fellow Bfca members came through where I failed. However, we will discuss Critics' Choice nominations more on the upcoming episodes of the RopeofSilicon podcast, for now we're talking Oscar as the Academy has released a complete list of all 104 original scores competing for Best Original Score at the 2013 Oscars. I have not yet posted my predictions for Best Original Score and while I am making a fuss above concerning Cloud Atlas and Beasts of the Southern Wild, I think both of those stand a very strong chance at a nomination this year. »

104 Scores Advance in Best Original Score Oscar Race

10 December 2012 3:34 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has narrowed down the Best Original Score race…to 104 entries.  The Academy has shortlisted over 100 scores from 2012 that are eligible to compete for the gold on Oscar night, including three from Alexandre Desplat alone (Argo, Rise of the Guardians, and Zero Dark Thirty).  Every year there are a few scores that are ruled ineligible for one reason or another, and this year those ineligible films include The Bourne Legacy, Moonrise Kingdom, and Rust and Bone. For my money, the standouts of 2012 were Beasts of the Southern Wild, Looper, and The Dark Knight Rises.  I have a feeling Howard Shore’s work on The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will end up being a favorite of mine as well.  Hit the jump to check out the full list of 104 eligible scores, and leave thoughts on your personal favorites from 2012 in the comments section.  The »

Brooklyn Decker Stirs Up a Roommate Rivarly on New Girl

6 December 2012 6:16 PM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

The men of New Girl have had their fair share of romantic encounters, but up until now there has never been any overlap in love interests. That’s all about to change with the recent casting of model-turned-actress Brooklyn Decker. Honestly, I can’t imagine why someone as gorgeous as Decker would give Nick, Schmidt or Winston the time of day, but apparently all three will be vying for the affections of this girl. Unless, of course, the three roommates have disillusioned themselves into thinking they have a chance with this girl when in reality she won’t be giving them the time of day. I think I like that idea.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Decker will play a bar patron named Holly. That must mean Nick is the first to lay eyes on her. Apparently finders-keepers doesn’t apply to woman you want to sleep with because both »

The Male Marilyn Monroe, Trashiest Film of the Year & Taylor Kitsch's Multiple Failures

6 December 2012 12:30 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

In NYMag's The Year in Film: A Collection of mini-riffs, they cover some important topics that made headlines in 2012--like Nicole Kidman peeing on Zac Efron and the Top Two Films of the Year That Involved Someone Riding Through a City in a Stretch Limo (1. "Holy Motors" and 2. "Cosmopolis"). They also consider the tragedy of the "romantic lead trapped in an action hero’s body," Taylor Kitsch: "At the start of 2012, Taylor Kitsch, the 'Friday Night Lights' star, seemed destined for glory. Then came 'John Carter,' which crash-landed. Next up: 'Battleship,' a movie based on a board game that played out as if it were based on a Michael Bay acid trip. A starring role in Oliver Stone’s 'Savage's failed to salvage this disastrous run. And just like that, a promising career seemed to lay in ruin." The modern day Marilyn Monroe »
