‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ is a Failure, and Summer Box Office Could Follow

14 May 2017 2:47 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” surpassed Warner Bros.’ modest expectations by revealing itself as a full-on belly flop, grossing $14.7 million. While nothing else approaches its level of disaster, it’s a beacon for the weaknesses that have begun to plague summer 2017.

Next week, expect Fox’s “Alien: Covenant” to lead three new summer entries. Ridley Scott’s return to his 1979 classic opened to $42 million in a majority of the world (but not China, among other territories); it will need to soar next weekend at home in order to restore some confidence to the industry.

The Top Ten

1. Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3 (Disney) Week 2- Last weekend #1

$63,007,000 (-57%) in 4,347 theaters (no change); PTA (per theater average): $14,494; Cumulative: $246,164,000

2. Snatched (20th Century Fox) New – Cinemascore: B; Metacritic: 46; $; est. budget: $42 million

$17,500,000 in 3,501 theaters; PTA: $4,999; Cumulative: $17,500,000

3. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (Warner Bros.) New – Cinemascore: B+; Metacritic: 41; $; est. budget: $175 million

$14,700,000 in »

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Melissa McCarthy Is The Only Living Boy In New York

14 May 2017 8:59 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last Week’S Review: Move Over, Evans/Pratt/Hemsworth, ‘Cause It’s Chris Pine Awareness Week

From dousing herself in ranch dressing to feeling up Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy has made a name for herself in the “Saturday Night Live” hall of fame. After last night’s episode, she earns a special distinction as well: McCarthy joined the Five Timer’s Club, so named for those who have hosted “SNL” a minimum of five times. (We won’t spoil the fellow club member who presented her with the official smoking jacket during the credits, but it’s good.) McCarthy surprised viewers earlier this season when she appeared as apoplectic White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, and it’s a cameo we’ve looked forward to since. That’s all to say: It’s the penultimate episode of the season, so did “Saturday Night Live” step up to the plate?

SNL: Watch Melissa McCarthy Join the Five Timers' Club, Trump Stymies Lester Holt and More Highlights

Melissa McCarthy was officially inducted into Saturday Night Live‘s Five Timers’ Club this weekend, with a little help from Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin.

The Bridesmaids star was presented with her honorary club robe at the end of a so-so episode, which is likely only to be remembered for McCarthy’s Sean Spicer and Baldwin’s President Donald Trump making out at the end of a press-briefing sketch.

Melissa McCarthy Rolls Down NYC Street Dressed as Sean Spicer Ahead of Hosting 'SNL'

12 May 2017 10:14 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Melissa McCarthy took her message to the streets on Friday.

Dressed as White House press secretary Sean Spicer, the 46-year-old actress was seen riding on a moving podium past CNN's offices in New York City. The bizarre display appeared to be for yet another Saturday Night Live sketch, as McCarthy was also yelling and pointing at people in their vehicles.

The Bridesmaids star will be hosting the second-to-last episode of the season this weekend, along with musical guest Haim, and already shot a promo of herself getting into her Sean "Spicy" Spicer costume.

McCarthy debuted her acclaimed Spicer impression in February, when she made a surprise appearance on SNL when Kristen Stewart was hosting. She's since reprised the role twice, most recently in April, when she played the press secretary making a public address while dressed as the Easter Bunny.

Box Office: ‘King Arthur’ Looks Like an Epic Flop

10 May 2017 2:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In only the second weekend of the summer box office, the first ice-cold front approaches.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” looks to continue its reign over the box office this weekend, but it’s far from the most interesting story. That title goes to “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword,” which is anticipating an opening weekend flop of epic proportions for Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow. Off of a $175 million production budget, not taking into account marketing costs, Guy Ritchie’s take on the medieval legend should make $25 million from over 3,600 locations.

Ritchie has seen box office glory in the past with 2009’s “Sherlock Holmes” ($209 million domestic and $524 million worldwide) and its 2011 sequel, “A Game of Shadows” ($187 million, $359 million). But more recently, the director saw a similar fate with his 2015 outing for Warner Bros., “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” The film ended its run with nearly $110 million worldwide off a $75 million budget, »

Film Review: ‘Snatched’

9 May 2017 10:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Amy Schumer is one of those rare comic artists, like Louis C.K. or Chris Rock, who can get you laughing out loud at reality. Two years ago, she carried that scorched-earth impulse right into her first movie, the fearlessly funny and close-to-the-bone “Trainwreck.” Written by Schumer herself, and directed by Judd Apatow, it was the most audacious romantic comedy in years — and the most satisfying, too — because it touched a nerve of almost masochistic sincerity. In “Snatched,” her first movie since “Trainwreck,” Schumer gets cast as a loser who’s even further down on the totem pole of respectability. It’s a sign of Schumer’s rapport with the audience that in the opening scene, where she appears to be playing the most annoying off-the-rack clothing-store customer in history (it turns out she’s actually the sales person), the deeper the hole she digs for herself, the more we like her. »

Dark Comedy Puppet Movie The Happytime Murders Moving Forward with Melissa McCarthy

3 May 2017 1:09 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

After years in development, it looks like viewers will finally get to see a darkly comedic take on the world of puppets in The Happytime Murders. Taking place in a world where puppets and humans live together, the film will feature a grisly murder mystery that must be solved by a pair of detectives, one human and one puppet. The movie is now finally moving forward with Melissa McCarthy set to star and produce, Brian Henson (son of the legendary Jim Henson) on board as the director, and filming expected to begin this August.

Press Release: (Burbank, CA, May 2, 2017) — STXfilms, whose Bad Moms was 2016’s highest grossing R-rated comedy, teams with comedic genius Melissa McCarthy in The Happytime Murders, directed by Brian Henson. The announcement was made today by STXfilms Chairman Adam Fogelson and Sam Brown, President of Production for STXfilms, a division of Stx Entertainment.

Melissa McCarthy To Investigate A Muppet Mystery In ‘The Happytime Murders’

3 May 2017 10:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The path to comedy stardom is normally: 1) have a breakout role, 2) become wildly overexposed by signing up to every role going, and 3) see increasingly diminishing returns to your star vehicles. But Melissa McCarthy has so far defied those expectations. Since exploding with her Oscar-nominated turn in “Bridesmaids” six years ago, McCarthy’s box-office record has been stellar, helping to turn films like “Identity Thief” and “Spy” into smashes, and even making modest successes of lower-concept projects like “The Boss” and “Tammy,” films where the only real marketing hook was ‘Melissa McCarthy is in this movie.’

It’s telling that perhaps her biggest disappointment so far, “Ghostbusters,” still made $128 million domestically.

Melissa McCarthy to star in puppet comedy The Happytime Murders

3 May 2017 1:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ghostbusters star Melissa McCarthy has a new comedy in the works. Coming from STXfilms, she has taken the lead role of Brian Henson’s comedy The Happytime Murders, a film which sees a world where humans and puppets coexist with each other.

The film takes place in Los Angeles where McCarthy plays a detective who is forced to work with a puppet detective on a high-profile case. Someone has been murdering the cast of ‘The Happytime Gang’, a beloved puppet show, and its up to them to find the killer.

Melissa McCarthy is the reigning queen of comedy and we believe she will make The Happytime Murders the kind of hysterical, edgy, viral event that audiences today crave,” said STXfilms Chairman Adam Fogelson. “This is the kind of script and material that was made for Melissa’s smart and boundary-pushing sensibilities. Having worked with her years ago on Bridesmaids and Identity Thief, »

Why we haven't seen sequels to Paul Feig's hit comedies

26 April 2017 12:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Edward Douglas Apr 27, 2017

Wondering where Bridesmaids 2, Spy 2, and The Heat 2 are? Paul Feig explains why they haven't happened.

Paul Feig took part in one of the Tribeca Film Festival’s Directors Series Tribeca Talks in New York earlier this week, being hosted by Saturday Night Live’s Michael Ché. While a wide variety of topics were covered from stand-up to working with women, one of the interesting things asked from the audience was when Feig might do a sequel to one of his hit comedies, whether it be Bridesmaids or The Heat or Spy. The latter two there had been talk about a sequel but he didn’t seem too optimistic that any of them might happen.

Supergirl delivers a pretty strong filler episode that lays the groundwork for Lena and Kara's future...

2.18 Ace Reporter

Now, that is how you do a filler episode. Aside from Kara's return to CatCo as a reporter, Ace Reporter wasn't a particularly important episode when it comes to the larger plot threads of season two. But what it lacked in moving the larger storylines along, it more than made up for in terms of character moments for Lena Luthor. As always, Supergirl is at its best when it is servicing the female relationships on this show.

3.15 How The Riddler Got His Name

Gotham is back! The midseason premiere is a strong start for the second half of season three, showing the further evolution of Ed into the Riddler. In terms of plot, it was less successful than some of the other Riddler-centric episodes we've gotten in the past, but nothing matched its insight into Ed's motivations as we saw him struggle to come to terms with his identity after killing — or, as we now know, attempting to kill — Oswald.

Zelda: fan making 2D Breath Of The Wild game

24 April 2017 9:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Matthew Byrd Apr 25, 2017

A Nintendo Entertainment System version of Breath Of The Wild? Yep, thanks to one cunning Zelda fan...

When designing The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild, Nintendo created a 2D prototype for the game that featured many of its core mechanics. The idea behind the prototype was that it would allow Nintendo to ensure that Breath Of The Wild still felt like a Zelda game regardless of its many deviations from familiar franchise features.

While many of us simply gawked at the demo and speculated about how cool a 2D take on BotW would be, one fan went out and simply designed that very game. 

First, a word of warning. »

5.3 The Liar

You know, the second I stopped trying to find a deeper meaning in Prison Break the more I started to enjoy it. I know, last week I talked about all these deeper themes they could be hinting at. That was the wrong way to approach the show. The right way is to just go along for the ride, biting your nails, wondering how the hell Michael is going get out of this one.

In that respect, this episode half succeeded. Last episode »
