Sue Kroll Named Worldwide Distribution Chief at Warner Bros.; Vet Dan Fellman Leaving (Exclusive)

29 July 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a key leadership transition, Warner Bros. worldwide marketing and international distribution chief Sue Kroll is expanding her duties, as domestic distribution head Dan Fellman prepares to step down after nearly four decades at the Burbank studio.

Kroll will become president of worldwide distribution, adding North America to her portfolio. As part of the management shift, international distribution chief Veronika Kwan Vandenberg will take over Fellman’s day-to-day responsibilities, continuing to report to Kroll. Her title will be president of worldwide distribution.

Fellman, who will stay on until the end of the year and then consult for the studio and other clients, is widely respected both within the creative and exhibition communities, and is considered an effective broker in the disagreements that periodically flare-up between studios and theater owners over movie terms. He has been with the studio since 1978, overseeing the successful releases of such hits as “The Dark Knight” trilogy, »

Jeff Nichols' 'Midnight Special' Pushed Back to March 2016

29 July 2015 11:31 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

With nary a still frame released to the public less than four months away from its November 25 premiere, it's not particularly shocking to hear Warner Bros. announce they're pushing Jeff Nichols' original sci-fi studio project Midnight Special, but it's nevertheless still at least a little disappointing. March 18, 2016 is now when you can expect to see the latest from the Mud/Take Shelter director. This pulls it from competing in the Thanksgiving slot beside Creed, Pixar's The Good Dinosaur, the Christmas-themed reunion of 50/50 stars Seth Rogen/Joseph Gordon-Levitt in The Night Before and the Daniel Radcliffe-starring Victor Frankenstein and lands it the week before another one of the studio's big tentpole release Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. A curious decision, made even more puzzling when it's revealed to also be combating Alligent - Part 1, Paramount's Monster Trucks and something from Tri-Star called Miracles From Heaven. Hopefully this isn't a sign of lost faith. »

Mid-Year Movie Report: Warner Bros. Dominates Top TV Ad Budgets

29 July 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Now that the midway point through 2015 has been passed,  iSpot.tv has undertaken an analysis of the spending and engagement for movie studios’ TV advertising activity so far this year.

Over the last six months, the movie industry spent more than $1.7 billion advertising official trailers on national TV for this year’s new films. That bought 621 spots, which aired nationally over 300,000 times. However, that doesn’t include the many dollars that flowed into co-promotions (“Minions,” brought to you by Tic Tacs!), or the dozens of trailer remixes and sneak previews studios now leveraged on YouTube and beyond.

These are the movies with the biggest TV advertising budgets behind them: (Click here for full-size image.)

1. Get Hard (Warner Bros.): $44.5 million

2. Focus (Warner Bros.): $43.3 million

3. Mad Max: Fury Road (Warner Bros.): $41.8 million

4. Jupiter Ascending (Warner Bros.): $41 million

5. Entourage (Warner Bros.): $40.6 million

6. Run All Night (Warner Bros.): »

No Word On ‘Sense8′ Season 2 But Wachowskis Plan To Keep Making Movies – TCA

28 July 2015 12:15 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

In the wake of Andy and Lana Wachowski’s box office bombs Jupiter Ascending ($176M production cost, worldwide B.O. $181.9M) and Cloud Atlas ($100M budget, $130M global B.O.), one of the questions posed by a reporter at TCA today was whether the Sense8 co-creators had finally found their bliss with the Netflix formula: a format that unlike their films allows the Wachowskis to paint on a large visual, avant garde canvas without the high risks that come with theatrical… »

Watch the original Pixels short film

25 July 2015 5:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the release of Adam Sandler’s 80s arcade game actioneer Pixels this week (to less than stellar reviews – read Robert Kojder’s ★ ★ one here), it might be a good time to rewatch the original short film on which it’s based.

“But it’s a Futurama episode!” you cry. Yes. Yes, it is. 2002’s Season 3 episode 18 ‘Anthology of Interest II‘, to be precise. But Sander’s Happy Madison Productions’ direct inspiration was the below 2010 film, directed by Patrick Jean. And at a lean 2 minutes 35 seconds, it sounds a lot more bearable than the feature-length adaptation. Check it out…

Pixels is directed by Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone) and stars Adam Sandler (Grown Ups 2), Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), Kevin James (Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2), Jane Krakowski (30 Rock), Michelle Monaghan (Playing it Cool), Sean Bean (Jupiter Ascending), Josh Gad (Frozen) and Brian Cox (The Bourne Identity »

Five New Releases Dominate Home-Video Sales

23 July 2015 9:22 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a banner week for new releases, the five top-selling discs on the national homevideo sales charts for the week ending July 19 are all newcomers that hit stores the previous Tuesday, the designated day when new product is put on display.

Twentieth Century Fox’s “The Longest Ride,” a romantic drama with $37.5 million in theatrical earnings, debuted at No. 1. Based on the Nicholas Sparks book, the film follows a young couple whose lives change after meeting an older man who was in a car crash, as he reflects on his own past romance.

Bowing at No. 2 was the comedy “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2,” a sequel to the 2009 cult hit from Sony Pictures. The original grossed $146.3 million and generated quite a buzz with its Segway-riding antihero and his laughable misadventures. The sequel earned $70.7 million theaters.

“Ex Machina,” from Lionsgate, debuted at No. 3. The film, in which a young programmer is »

Adam Sandler discusses The Ridiculous 6 controversy

20 July 2015 4:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Speaking to The Associated Press (via The Hollywood Reporter), Adam Sandler has addressed the controversy on the set of his latest film, The Ridiculous 6, which is the comedian’s first venture with Netflix.

At the premiere of his new film Pixels, Sandler was asked about the Native American actors who walked off the set of Ridiculous 6 in April due to the offensive content of the film to their culture. Some actors were reportedly upset over the names of some of the characters, as well as a scene where a Native American woman smokes a peace pipe while urinating.

“It was just a misunderstanding and once the movie is out will be cleared up,” Sandler said over the weekend, while also saying the film was “100 percent pro-American Indian”.

The Ridiculous Six is a spoof-comedy which pokes fun at the Western genre, including the classic The Magnificent Seven.

‘Get Hard’ Fends Off New Releases Atop Home-Video Charts

17 July 2015 4:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Home Entertainment’s “Get Hard” held off a pair of newcomers to top the national home video sales charts for the second consecutive week.

The latest Will Ferrell comedy, which grossed $90.4 million at the domestic box office, was No. 1 again the week ending July 12 on both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks combined Blu-ray Disc and DVD sales, as well as Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc-only chart.

Debuting at No. 2 on both charts was Lionsgate’s “Maggie,” a horror movie in which aging action star Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a father whose daughter (Abigail Breslin) comes down with a disease that will ultimately turn her into a zombie. The film opened with a limited theatrical release, and simultaneously debuted on VOD, on May 8.

Another newcomer, Anchor Bay’s “Woman in Gold,” debuted at No. 3 on the First Alert chart (and No. 6 on the Blu-ray chart). The film, »

Ahead of its summer release Sony has debuted a new featurette for the upcoming sci-fi action comedy Pixels focusing on Michelle Monaghan’s Col. Violet Van Patten. Check it out below…

As kids in the 1980s, Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), Will Cooper (Kevin James), Ludlow Lamonsoff (Josh Gad), and Eddie “The Fire Blaster” Plant (Peter Dinklage) saved the world thousands of times – at 25 cents a game in the video arcades.  Now, they’re going to have to do it for real.  In Pixels, when intergalactic aliens discover video feeds of classic arcade games and misinterpret them as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth, using the video games as the models for their assaults — and now-u.S.

Peter Pan Embarks on an Adventure In New Trailer For Joe Wright’s Fantasy Epic

Watch: Fantastical New Trailer For Joe Wright’s ‘Pan’ With Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund & Rooney Mara

15 July 2015 7:38 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

When a movie gets pushed off its release date, the blood often drips into the water with fans and bloggers. What’s wrong with the film they ask? And often—see “Jupiter Ascending” or “Kingsman: The Secret Service”—the film does have its problems. This narrative seems to have skipped passed Joe Wright’s lavish reimagining of the Peter Pan story. Originally set for this summer, the movie now arrives in October reportedly to focus on finishing up special effects. And we suppose it’s good on Wright and WB that they do not have to deal with skepticism and negativity at the moment.

Major TV Cast Lines Up For Christie's "None"

13 July 2015 10:01 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

To coincide with Agatha Christie's 125th anniversary, BBC One and Lifetime are teaming up for an all-star mini-series based on arguably the Grand Dame of mystery's most famous work - "And Then There Were None".

Set on the eve of World War Two, the story follows ten strangers with dubious pasts who are lured to an isolated rock near the Devon coast in southern England. Cut off from the mainland, their host is mysteriously absent.

A recording starts with each accused of a terrible crime. As each member of the party starts to mysteriously die one-by-one every few hours, the survivors realise one of them is a killer and start to turn on each other.

This time out the ensemble will be: Charles Dance ("Game of Thrones"), Sam Neill ("Jurassic Park"), Toby Stephens ("Black Sails"), Aidan Turner ("The Hobbit"), Miranda Richardson ("Harry Potter"), Anna Maxwell Martin ("The Bletchley Circle »

Mila Kunis: Ashton Kutcher Is an "Incredibly Hands-On Dad," Wants to Change Every Diaper

Bring on the baby wipes! Dirty diapers are no match for first-time dad Ashton Kutcher, who welcomed daughter Wyatt Isabelle with wife Mila Kunis last October. Speaking about their daughter in an interview with the UK's Telegraph recently, Kunis raved about her hubby's parenting prowess. "My husband is an incredibly hands-on dad," the Jupiter Ascending actress, 31, told the paper of the Two and a Half Men alum, 37. "When my child was born, I was breast-feeding and he said, 'That's your connection, I want to change [...] »

From 'Jurassic World' to 'Minions': Why Universal Owns the Box Office

13 July 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

From rampaging dinosaurs to yellow henchman, Universal Pictures can't be stopped.

With "Minions" scoring a $115.2 million opening weekend -- the second highest for an animated film, behind 2007's "Shrek the Third" with $121.6 million -- it's not just another hit for Universal this summer, but for the industry in general.

The overall take is keeping up with 2013, the best year to date. It's also part of a stellar year for Universal, which boasted this week that it's reached the $3 billion mark overseas in record time, thanks largely to such hits as "Minions," "Jurassic World," "Pitch Perfect 2," "Furious 7," and "Fifty Shades of Grey."

But the big box office of these movies points to a larger issue. All of them, save "Fifty Shades," are spinoffs, sequels, and/or reboots of previously successful films. (And "Fifty Shades," of course, is based on a huge bestseller.) If Universal had a great first six months of the year, »
