Box Office: ‘Kung Fu Panda 3’ Trumps ‘Hail, Caesar!,’ ‘Pride & Prejudice & Zombies’ Flops

7 February 2016 8:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood fumbled the ball during a quiet Super Bowl weekend at the multiplexes as new releases such as “Hail, Caesar!” and “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” failed to make much noise.

For the second weekend in a row, DreamWorks Animation’s “Kung Fu Panda 3” easily topped box office charts. The animated sequel added $21 million to its $69 million domestic haul. The film is playing particularly well in China, where it is being distributed by Oriental DreamWorks, a $330-million East-West joint venture. It crossed the $100 million mark in the People’s Republic this weekend after opening day-and-date in the U.S. and China on Jan. 29.

Universal’s “Hail, Caesar!,” a sendup of the Hollywood studio system from the Coen brothers, fared best among the new entrants, though that’s grading on a generous curve. It picked up a mediocre $11.4 million for a second place finish. A C-minus CinemaScore could spell trouble for the film’s long-term prospects, »

Movie Review – Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016)

6 February 2016 4:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, 2016.

Written and Directed by Burr Steers.

Starring Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith, Ellie Bamber, Millie Brady, Suki Waterhouse, Sally Phillips, Charles Dance, and Lena Headey.

Synopsis:

Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England is faced with a new challenge — an army of undead zombies.

Slow motion takes over as the Bennet sisters begin unsheathing various types of blades hidden underneath their elaborate Victorian-era appropriate garments (in what is a rather titillating shot), but most crucially, seems to promise that the ludicrous movie titled Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will live up to the level of absurd, stupid entertainment promised. That one quick scene offers essentially everything one could want coming into something so ridiculous; beautiful women dressed to kill that know their way around daggers and swords, »

Exclusive Video Interview: Nicholas Sparks And Tom Welling Talk The Choice

5 February 2016 11:16 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Nicholas Sparks fans can now rejoice as yet another one of his romance novels has been turned into a motion picture. This time, it’s The Choice, which hits theatres this Friday and stars Benjamin Walker (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) as Travis Shaw, a ladies’ man living on the North Carolina coast who works at his father’s veterinarian office in an effort to heal the townspeople’s sick pets.

His life is turned upside down though when he meets his neighbor Gabby Holland (Teresa Palmer). Despite their apparent dislike for each other at the start, they soon embark on an amazing romantic journey that takes them places they never expected to go.

Last week, the Los Angeles press day for The Choice took place and while there, we had the chance to speak with both Sparks and Tom Welling, who co-stars in the film as Dr. Ryan McCarthy, Gabby »

[Review] The Choice

5 February 2016 5:31 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

For many, Nicholas Sparks’ adaptations are a dead horse that have been beaten with punishing predictability. Now released as annual installments, every new one is greeted with the same critiques of predictability, melodramatic writing and the avalanche of contrivances that make up the plot. Sparks’ adaptations have distilled their paint-by-numbers blueprint to a science with the same immutable features, namely a fawning view of North Carolina that doubles as a superlative tourism board video, and a star-crossed romance that’s struck with divine intervention.

Ross Katz’s The Choice isn’t terribly dissimilar from the rest of the crop, but it’s still one of the better Sparks adaptations since The Notebook because it doesn’t simply feel like it’s dragging its heels until the main conflict hits.  For the first hour, it’s just a very good hang-out movie with likable characters and amiable dialogue that recall the »

The Choice (2016) – The Review

4 February 2016 3:28 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

2016 is five weeks old, so the new model is rolling off the assembly line. You might think I’m referring to an automobile company like Ford or Lincoln. Well, we are dealing with a brand name, one associated with popular novels instead of cars. Stephen King is still king of the horror/suspense novels, John Grisham has the legal thrillers, and Nicholas Sparks is best known for the swoony, sweeping romance paperbacks that fill the spinner racks at airport gift shops and often protrude from the tops of canvas beach bags. His best sellers quickly grabbed the attention of the movie studios, and almost a dozen have been translated to the big screen (easy to see why since they don’t require costly CGI action set pieces or big name superstars since Sparks is the name that draws ’em in). Back to the assembly line reference, there’s been a »

No Pride, Lots of Zombies

4 February 2016 2:14 PM, PST | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

       Jane Austen has proved to be one of the most durable authors of modern times, judging by how many adaptations, extrapolations, and rip-offs of her work have been filmed over the past thirty years. Who would dream that a movie called Pride and Prejudice and Zombies would be the dullest one of all?        Even the adaptation of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (based on a mashup novel by the same author, Seth Grahame-Smith) had more going for it than this tiresome film, written and directed by Burr Steers. The premise, laid out in a handsome but tedious title sequence, is that England has been invaded by an army of zombies who threaten to...

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and 10 Other Adaptations That Jane Austen Never Would Have Anticipated

2 February 2016 2:15 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The love story of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy has been told again and again onscreen, and each adaptation has in its own way addressed themes of class, social etiquette and romance that Jane Austen wove into the 1813 classic, Pride and Prejudice. But now Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, in theaters Feb. 5, introduces a whole new slew of themes: the undead, for example, and martial arts and lots and lots of blood and gore. The film has Cinderella star Lily James playing Elizabeth, who in this version just happens to be leading a small army of sword-toting society women in »

'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies': Film Review

27 January 2016 9:23 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

It is a truth universally acknowledged that most people will do anything to make money. And really, who's to blame the editor at Quirk Books who first suggested to author Seth Grahame-Smith (he of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter infamy) that there was great potential in mashing up Jane Austen's enduringly popular 19th-century novel Pride and Prejudice with the living dead genre? Ladies must live, bottom lines must be met, and the trends of the moment must be exploited. { "nid": 836557, "type": "video", "title": "'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' Trailer", "path": "http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/video/pride-prejudice-zombies-trailer-836557",

Review: Pride And Prejudice And Zombies – Surprisingly Feminist and Wickedly Funny

27 January 2016 2:22 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Pride and Prejudice and...zombies? It may sound like a strange combination, but the parody novel written by Seth Grahame-Smith has already hit number three on the New York Times bestseller list, moved up on Amazon's catalog of popular novels from a spot in the 300s all the way up to number 27, and sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide. Mainly derived from Jane Austen's iconic 1813 Regency romance novel, mixed with an impending zombie apocalypse and warrior-trained daughters, this kooky mashup has been received shockingly well, and even spawned several books of the same nature by other authors, hoping to cash in on Smith's clever trend.

Much like the source material, the plot revolves around the Bennet family, consisting of Elizabeth and her four sisters, their mother, who desperately tries to marry the girls off, and their father, who trains them for battle. When a promising bachelor named Mr. Bingley moves »

Watch: First 2 Clips From 'Pride And Prejudice And Zombies' Plus New Images Of Undead Action

21 January 2016 11:14 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If you were one of the five people who enjoyed the genre mashup "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," then "Pride And Prejudice And Zombies" is probably right up your alley. After all, it's based on another book by 'Vampire Hunter' author Seth Grahame-Smith and is exactly what it sounds like: Jane Austen's beloved book populated with the undead. And while we'll have to forever dream of what David O. Russell would've done with the material (he was fleetingly attached to write and direct), Burr Steers ("17 Again," "Igby Goes Down") is now at the helm. Read More: The 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2016 Starring Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith, Charles Dance and Lena Headey, the movie promises all the gowns and period detail you'd expect from Austen's story, but twisted into something much weirder and more gnarly.  Check out the two new clips below to »

‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ Shows off Two New Clips, What a Time to Be Alive

20 January 2016 6:10 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The fact that a Pride and Prejudice and Zombies movie even exists is kind of surreal when you think about it. It wasn’t really that long ago that this kind of insane horror literary mashup was the kind of thing confined solely to quiet corners of your local book store, maybe sitting next to a Kim Newman novel. (Hey, why haven’t they made an Anno Dracula movie yet?) But now, in the days of the all-important nerd demographic, when movies like Ant-Man and Warcraft exist, the idea of a movie that throws together the characters of Jane Austen’s beloved novel with flesh-eating hordes of the undead almost seems like business as usual. This is the world we live in. Take a moment to appreciate that. And after that moment, come watch these two new clips from the upcoming film that showcase Lily James’ take-no-prisoners Lizzie Bennet, Lena »

Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Debuts New Character Posters

18 January 2016 10:21 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A new series of character posters has been released today by Lionsgate UK, focusing on the heroes of the upcoming romance action flick Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Based on the best-selling parody novel of the same name, the movie follows the story of the Bennett sisters, Elizabeth (Lily James), Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse), who must all come of age during the incoming zombie apocalypse set against the backdrop of 19th Century England.

Originally released in 2009, the novel takes the original structure of Jane Austen’s classic story and infuses it with a bit of bloody mayhem as all of her well-known characters must learn how to deal with zombies in addition to all of the issues of manners and societal strife that Austen’s book is known for. Pride and Prejudice and Zombie‘s author, Seth Grahame-Smith, also wrote Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, »

Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who starred in “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” returns to the 19th century for the new drama “Mercy Street,” the first scripted PBS series shot in the U.S. in a decade.
