12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may have been met with a mixed reception, but that hasn’t prevented Disney’s live-action Sleeping Beauty reimagining Maleficent from crossing $700 million at the global box office.

The Angelina Jolie-headlined fairy tale fantasy is currently sitting on $715,019,000 worldwide, making it the third biggest earner of the year behind Transformers: Age of Extinction ($966.4 million) and X-Men: Days of Future Past ($739.5 million). In all, it’s the fifth film to reach the $700 million mark this year, with fellow Disney release Captain America: The Winter Soldier earning $713 million and Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 sitting on $706.3 million.

Directed by Robert Stromberg, Maleficent stars Angelina Jolie (The Tourist), Elle Fanning (Super 8), Sharlto Copley (Elysium), Imelda Staunton (The Pirates! Band of Misfits), Miranda Richardson (The Hours), Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises), and Lesley Manville (Romeo and Juliet). Read our reviews here, here and here.

All About That Mind-Blowing 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Footage From Comic-Con 2014

27 July 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Yesterday's Marvel panel, in the vast Hall H (imagine what you'd think the inside of a whale looks like or one of the hulls on Noah's ark), was the Valhalla for comic book enthusiasts, movie geeks, and guys who want to dress up like Doctor Who. People had been waiting in line outside the convention center for hours and some dedicated fans had been camped overnight, with a single goal: to watch the Marvel panel in Hall H. And, of course, the thing that was on everyone's mind was footage from next summer's "Avengers: Age of Ultron," the almost supernaturally anticipated new sequel. And after seeing the footage, we can confirm that it was indeed mind-blowing.

The clip started with an extended sequence set in the newly remodeled Avengers Tower in New York. The gang is all there: Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans »

Taylor Swift, Meryl Streep and 3 other things we learned from 'The Giver' at Comic Con

24 July 2014 8:19 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

San Diego — The latest young adult novel to head to the big screen, "The Giver," showed its wares at Comic-Con 2014 on Thursday. Oscar winner and movie legend Jeff Bridges was on hand, but none other than original author Lois Lowry stole the show. Based on Lowry's 1993 novel, "The Giver" is actually a drama set in a dystopian future that precedes "The Hunger Games" and "Divergent" by almost 15 years. It finds the remnants of the human race living in a very controlled world after an apocalyptic "fall." When Jonas, a young man played by "Maleficent's" Brenton Thwaites, is chosen to replace the society's Giver (Bridges), a chain of events occurs that could unravel this utopian society. Meryl Streep makes arguably her sci-fi debut playing the political leader of this world. She's joined by Katie Holmes and Alexander Skarsgård, who play Jonas' parents. Newcomer Odeya Rush (the upcoming "Goosebumps") plays Twaites' »

#SDCC14: Pre-Order Oculus and Receive a Limited Edition Hand Mirror

24 July 2014 3:03 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

We're already only a couple weeks away from the home video release of Mike Flanagan's Oculus (review), which Fox invites us to stare into on August 5th.

Comic-Con attendees are being given the chance to score a special add-on item with their purchase of the disc, one that is likely to make all their friends jealous: The first 100 attendees to pre-order Oculus directly from the Fox Home Entertainment Booth (#4229) will receive a Comic-Con exclusive replica of the haunted mirror seen in the movie, which has been made small enough that you can hold it in your hand.

Again, this is only for attendees, and only 100 fans will be able to score one. Check it out below!

Look for Oculus on Digital HD July 29th, ahead of the home video release.

Synopsis

Seeing is deceiving in this disturbingly original horror flick that reflects heart-stopping terror as you’ve never imagined! »

Meet Brenton Thwaites, the Star of The Giver and Your New Crush

22 July 2014 4:22 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

We're less than a month away from The Giver's Aug. 15 release, and that means it's time to familiarize yourself with the star of the big -creen adaptation. Brenton Thwaites plays Jonas, the young hero of Lois Lowry's famous novel, opposite Jeff Bridges. If you haven't heard of him, you probably didn't catch his run on the Australian soap Home and Away - the same show on which Chris Hemsworth, Isla Fisher, and Guy Pearce got their big breaks. He also turned up in Maleficent this year as Prince Phillip, but when we caught up with him recently, we really just wanted some intel on The Giver. Don't be jealous, but he totally jammed out with The Dude. Popsugar: Did you have any hesitation signing up for an adaptation of such a beloved book? Brenton Thwaites: No, my only concern in the beginning was my age. We worked »

'Maleficent' Crosses $700 Million Worldwide, Shining Jewel in Lackluster Summer

22 July 2014 11:49 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Disney had the sense to back its Sleeping Beauty spin-off starring Angelina Jolie, "Maleficent," knowing that the Disney brand could sell the film worldwide. After all, the studio has done well with fairy tale princesses for its entire history, from "Snow White" to "Frozen." Now "Maleficent," which opened May 30, has topped $700 million worldwide, marking Jolie’s highest-grossing live action film of all time domestically, internationally and globally, as well as the highest grossing original film of 2014 worldwide. "Maleficent" is a shining jewel in a dull summer box office that has dipped 20 % so far. The year to date is down by 6 %. The other Hollywood studios are paying the price for sticking to lookalike formulas, chasing sequels and the fickle male demo. Many of the disappointing films aimed at men didn't pull enough women, and several films aimed at women have done well even with mixed reviews, from spring hit »

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Will Finally Reunite as Costars in 'By the Sea'

18 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's been nearly 10 years and numerous children since Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt co-starred in "Mr. & Mrs. Smith," and to say things have changed since then would be an understatement.

Now they're both powerhouse behind the scenes in Hollywood, with Pitt producing films like "12 Years a Slave" and "Moneyball" and Jolie writing and directing dramas like "In the Land of Blood and Honey" and the upcoming "Unbroken." They're joining forces again on a new movie called "By The Sea," which Jolie will also write and direct. They will also produce the film. It will be a Jolie-Pitt cinematic overload!

There's not much detail about "By The Sea" except that it's an "intimate, character-driven drama." Although "Unbroken" is looking like a good horse to bet on in this year's Oscar race -- it's based on Laura Hillenbrand's best-selling book about the life of the late WWII hero, Pow, and Olympian »

Weekend Of 'The Apes': 'Dawn' Rules The Box Office

13 July 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

'Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes', the weekend's only newcomer, managed to oust 'Transformers: Age Of Extinction' from the box office top spot.

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, the weekend's only newcomer, managed to oust Transformers: Age Of Extinction from the box office top spot and handily beat its predecessor in opening weekend returns. Meanwhile only one film managed to increase in sales. Here is the weekend box office top 10.

#1. Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes - $73 million

Clearly, people wanted to see Andy Serkis acting like a primate, so that's good news for Andy and bad news for any real primates who were hoping to star in any upcoming remakes of Dunston Checks In. The first film in the rebooted franchise, Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, only made $54 million in its debut, meaning the sequel beat it by almost $19 million.

#2. Transformers: Age Of Extinction - $16.5 million »

He soon finds out that the girls at the party are more than they seem."

According to THR, the script that was written by Philippa Goslett and Mitchell "turns Parties into more of a two-hander love story focusing on a schoolboy and ‎punk who uses music and art as a way to escape and a »
