Box Office: 'The Maze Runner' crosses the finish line at no. 1 with $32.5 million

21 September 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Maze Runner" breathed a little life into the box office this weekend with a very good $32.5 million debut.   Some polling services had the adaptation of James Rashner's 2007 novel opening closer to $40 million, but considering its the first film since "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" at the beginning of August to open over $30 million Hollywood will happily take it. "Runner" grossed substantially more than "The Giver's" $12 million debut last month, but significantly lower than "Divergent's" $54.6 million in March. The film, which is top lined by "Teen Wolf" star Dylan O'Brien, earned an A- Cinemascore grade which means it should have solid word of mouth in the weeks to come. Disappointing in second place was Universal Pictures' "A Walk Among the Tombstones" with just $13.1 million.  The Scott Frank directed thriller is Liam Neeson's lowest wide release opening since "The Next Three Days" in 2010.  With a reported production budget of $28 million »

Box Office: 'The Maze Runner' outwits Liam Neeson for no. 1 Friday

20 September 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Maze Runner" is the third major Ya movie to hit theaters in 2014 and while it didn't shatter any records it got off to a very good start on Friday. Directed by Wes Ball, the adaptation of James Rashner's 2007 novel earned an estimated $11.2 million on its first full day of release.  That means it should end up with somewhere between $30-32 million for the weekend. That would put it far ahead of "The Giver's" $12 million debut in August, but significantly lower than "Divergent's" $54.6 million opening this past March. The film, which is top lined by "Teen Wolf" star Dylan O'Brien, also earned an A- Cinemascore grade which means it should have solid word of mouth in the weeks to come. Disappointing in second place was Universal Pictures' "A Walk Among the Tombstones" with just $4.7 million.  The Scott Frank directed thriller looks as though it will be lucky to hit $14 million by Eod Sunday. »

Film Review: 'A Walk Among the Tombstones'

20 September 2014 12:57 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆There's an endearing nature to Liam Neeson's action-hero exploits - what CineVue's Chris Fennell dubbed "Neesploitation" - over the years. The man who won an Oscar nomination twenty years past for Schindler's List (1993) is now a more bankable hardman than Schwarzenegger and Stallone, and yet little before 2008's Taken suggested such a second career for someone of Neeson's gruff appearance. Perhaps the tragic death of his then-wife Natasha Richardson was the catalyst. There's a gravitas and indeed a tragedy that makes him effortlessly identifiable in these madcap parts. Just look at how many 'former' roles he plays - an ex-cia man in the Taken films, a reformed convict in The Next Three Days.

Macaulay Culkin and the Home Alone cast then & now

26 August 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kevin McCallister is all grown up now. Macaulay Culkin celebrates his 34th birthday today (August 26), so what better time to take a trip down memory lane to find out what happened to the cast of Culkin's greatest work: Home Alone.

Digital Spy goes 'then & now' with the cast of the comedy classic below...

Macaulay Culkin

The biggest child star of the '90s, Culkin spent almost a decade away from screen acting following 1994's Ri¢hie Ri¢h. After a stint on London's West End in Madame Melville, he returned to TV and film in 2003 with roles in Will & Grace and Party Monster. His acting parts since have been sparse - a 2010 Robot Chicken Christmas special is his last (voice only) credit - but Culkin seems to have found his calling as the frontman of a Velvet Underground pizza-themed cover band.

The State Within TV review: unknown knowns

9 July 2014 5:58 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A riveting BBC political thriller offering one of the most trenchant explorations yet of the sick symbiosis between big government and big business. I’m “biast” (pro): love Jason Isaacs and Ben Daniels

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

I wasn’t planning on writing anything about this. I only came across it on Netflix (it’s available in the U.S. and the U.K., but not Canada) because I’m crushing on Ben Daniels (just inducted into the Boyfriend Hall of Fame) and there were no Law & Order: UK reruns on at that moment and I needed a fix. And this had Jason Isaacs in it, too! Double yum.

But oh my god, now that I’ve finished all seven episodes — it’s a limited miniseries, so that’s all there will ever be — I feel like I »

Small films released on the same day as major blockbusters

8 July 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Some great films were released on the same day as such recent hits as The Dark Knight Rises and Frozen. Here are a few of them...

Odd List

The 3rd July 2013 saw the release of Disney's The Lone Ranger, its larger-than-life western starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer. Its theatrical debut marked the end of a lengthy and difficult production, stories from which had been hungrily served up by the media - the previous summer was dominated by news stories of its spiralling budget, which was thought to have crossed $250m. Nevertheless, the 2013 blockbuster season should, in theory, have marked a fresh start for Disney, as it spent a reported $150m on marketing The Lone Ranger. But the House of Mouse hadn't counted on the popularity of another film launched on that exact same day in July: Universal's animated sequel, Despicable Me 2.

Review: Third Person, Awful People In An Awful World

1 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

As amply evidenced by his latest film, Third Person, Paul Haggis is a purveyor of pain, which isn't something I would ever expect from someone who wrote for the 1980s TV sitcom The Facts of Life and created small-screen shows such as Walker, Texas Ranger and Due South. It's possible that Haggis' career since then has been a reaction to those experiences, although the more likely explanation is that he is more willing than most to tap a deep personal reservoir of despair, whether from personality or knowledge, and express dark emotions through his characters, especially in films he has directed, such as Crash and The Next Three Days. The latter, at least, had a strong narrative hook that gave the film a modest impetus....

Tsr Exclusive: ‘Third Person’ Interview with Writer/Director Paul Haggis

26 June 2014 11:16 PM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Writer/director Paul Haggis puts himself behind the camera once again for Third Person, an unraveling ball of yarn that tells of a writer (Liam Neeson) who becomes involved with his protege (Olivia Wilde) in Paris, a New York artist (James Franco) and the mother of his son (Mila Kunis), and an American (Adrien Brody) who becomes involved in the plight of an Italian woman (Moran Atias). The international drama is like his previous Crash, but takes a less literal route in finding common ground behind these diverse stories.

In 2004 Haggis received two Oscars for Crash, his second directed film, including the award for “Best Picture.” After that success he wrote films for Clint Eastwood (Flags of Our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima) and the first two James Bond films from the Daniel Craig era, Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. Haggis most recently directed The Next Three Days »

Light emerging from the shadows: Sos staff members share their thoughts on noir

2 May 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Film noir. What is it? What are its defining characteristics? What films best express its qualities? Sex appeal, violence, cynicism, anti-heroes, femmes fatales, bleak commentary on modern society, maddening twists of fate that perpetuate one’s misery, running away from danger yet never making any ground…noir is and represents a wide variety of things, so much so that film experts do not even agree on whether it is a genre unto itself. (Two of the leading voices, James Ursini and Alain Silver, agree that it represents a movement rather than a definable genre.) For well over two years now, Sound on Sight has hosted the Friday Noir column which, on a near-weekly basis,  has covered a great many noir entries of the commonly recognized classic period (1941 to 1959) as well as sizable portion of neo-noirs. Slowly and steadily, the column has explored the extremely exhaustive catalogue of titles with still many to come. »

Ron Howard Will Direct 'The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair'

23 April 2014 4:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ron Howard is attached to direct and produce an adaptation of Joel Dicker's hit novel The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair for Warner Bros.

The book, which has become a publishing sensation in Europe, follows a novelist who gets caught up in a scandal involving his beloved mentor, a heavyweight of American literature, when a 15-year-old girl is found dead in his backyard. The book was published by Bernard de Fallois' Editions de Fallois, and has already sold more than 2 million copies. The book finished just behind Fifty Shades of Grey on the charts in France, and it has also outsold Dan Brown's Inferno in Italy and Spain. Penguin will publish the novel in the U.S. next month.

The filmmaker is also producing with his Imagine Entertainment partner Brian Grazer, with deals already in the works for Eug&#233nie Grandval (The Next Three Days) and Claire Lundberg to produce as well. »

Liam Neeson Writes Melodrama in First Us Trailer for 'Third Person'

18 April 2014 10:44 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following an international trailer and domestic poster for Paul Haggis' latest drama Third Person, the first trailer for the film's undated release in the United States has arrived. Unfortunately, all it does is showcase more of the melodrama while building up the mystery of what will tie all these characters together. However, if we were to take a guess based on this trailer, it clearly has something to do with the story that Liam Neeson is working on. We get a bit more of Mila Kunis, Kim Basinger and Maria Bello in this trailer as well. We're still not sold on this film, but maybe the performances are good. Watch? Here's the first Us trailer for Paul Haggis' Third Person from YouTube: Third Person is written and directed by Paul Haggis (Crash, The Next Three Days) and follows three stories in Paris, Rome and New York, each with »

First Poster for Paul Haggis' Drama 'Third Person' Blows in the Wind

16 April 2014 10:09 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following yesterday's international trailer for the Toronto Film Festival selected Third Person, the first poster for the film's release in the United States has arrived, but the film doesn't yet have a date to hit theaters. If you look hard enough, you can see Liam Neeson in the background, and we're not sure why he's being given top billing since the film follows him along with Adrien Brody and James Franco, with all of their stories in Paris Rome and New York (respectively) intersecting somehow. The dress blowing away like paper is a nice touch, but after yesterday's trailer, we're not all that excited to see the film itself. Here's the first poster for Paul Haggis' Third Person from Imp Awards: Third Person is written and directed by Paul Haggis (Crash, The Next Three Days) and follows three stories in Paris, Rome and New York, each with hidden connections »

James Franco, Mila Kunis & More in 'Third Person' International Trailer

15 April 2014 8:04 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following a debut at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, and a forthcoming slot at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival in New York, an international trailer for Paul Haggis' most recent directorial effort Third Person has arrived. Though the film doesn't have distribution in the United States yet, the star-studded cast that includes Liam Neeson, James Franco, Adrien Brody, Mila Kunis, Olivia Wilde has made it appealing enough to get a release in Italy and Belgium this month and Japan later this year. Unfortunately, we're not looking forward to the film getting picked up for release in the Us, because this looks melodramatic, overwrought and cheesy as hell. If you didn't like Crash, this one won't be for you. Here's the international trailer for Paul Haggis' Third Person from Vlicious! (via The Playlist): Third Person is written and directed by Paul Haggis (Crash, The Next Three Days) and follows three stories in Paris, »

Watch a Trailer for Paul Haggis’s Third Person

15 April 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It's been a little less than ten years since the release of Crash and a little more than nine years since the backlash to Crash. The time since hasn't been too kind to Paul Haggis as a director, whose two films In the Valley of Elah and The Next Three Days went on to be non-events. Now Haggis is back with Third Person. Starring Liam Neeson, Mila Kunis, Adrien Brody, James Franco, Olivia Wilde, Maria Bello, Kim Basinger, and Moran Atias, it tells the story of three tangentially connected couples in New York, Rome, and Paris, and the crazy, yell-y stuff that happens to them. The film is screening at the Tribeca Film Festival later this month, with a wide release coming later in the year. Watch the international trailer below — even if you don’t think you'll like the movie, at least it will put you on your way »

International Star You Should Know: Moran Atias

4 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Claim To Fame

Israeli-born Moran Atias became known to U.S. auds as Inez in Paul Haggis’ 2008 series “Crash” on Starz. She also teamed with Haggis on 2010 thriller “The Next Three Days.”

Inner Fire

The 33-year-old Atias began her career as a globe-trotting model, but her friend Domenico — the Dolce in the Dolce & Gabbana fashion design house — urged her, in her early 20s, to try thesping. “I had a very exciting life in Italy, and I was doing lots of variety shows,” she says, but when she took an acting seminar, that was it for her. “I love the inner discovery,” she says.

Art Of The Pitch

While Atias was picking up acting gigs, she also started writing. She had an idea for a film that had a complex structure, so she called on Haggis. “My pitch to Paul was dreadful,” she says, but it became the film “Third Person, »

Watch: Elizabeth Banks Has Hellish One Night Stand in 'Walk of Shame'

15 January 2014 8:13 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

While Elizabeth Banks has mostly been relegated to meaty supporting roles in films like People Like Us, The Hunger Games, The Next Three Days and Role Models, this time she's taking the lead on the comedy Walk of Shame. It's a classic race against time as Banks plays a local news reporter who has the sudden opportunity to become a network news anchor. The only problem is after her car is towed following a one night stand (with James Marsden), she has no phone, ID or money, and finds herself stranded and desperate to make it to the interview. This trailer reminds me of that movie Trojan War from 1997 with "Boy Meets World" star Will Friedle looking everywhere for a condom. And that's not a compliment. Watch! Here's the first trailer for Steven Brill's Walk of Shame, originally from Yahoo: Walk of Shame is written and directed by Steven Brill (Mr. Deeds, »
