'Dark Tower' Looks to Top Slow Weekend as Summer Slump Continues

3 August 2017 1:40 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Around this time last year Suicide Squad debuted to the tune of $133.6 million and gave the 2016 summer movie season a much-needed jolt. This year the summer movie season is in the midst of a slump, off nearly 9% compared to last year and don't expect this weekend to turn things around. Sony's adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower should top the box office, but only with an opening around $20 million while fellow new wide release Kidnap appears unlikely to crack double digits. Meanwhile, Annapurna will deliver Kathryn Bigelow's Detroit nationwide following its limited release last weekend as it looks for a spot in the weekend top five among the holdovers. Back in 2010, Universal set a 2013 release date for The Dark Tower. At the time, Ron Howard was set to direct the Stephen King adaptation and there was talk of telling King's sci-fi fantasy story across both film and television. »

(Welcome to The Unpopular Opinion, a series where a writer goes to the defense of a much-maligned film or sets their sights on a movie seemingly beloved by all. In this edition: why the failure of Valerian the City of a Thousand Planets allows it to join the club of overlooked space fantasy that already includes […]

'Dunkirk' Heading Toward $51M Debut, 'Girls Trip' Strong, 'Valerian' Sinks

20 July 2017 11:07 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Saturday a.m. Update: With an estimated $19.8 million, Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is heading toward an opening weekend right around $50 million to $52 million. It's a great start for the WWII feature, especially given the holds Nolan's films have shown in recent history as well as the critical response and now the "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, a notch above the "B+" audiences gave Interstellar. Additionally, Dunkirk has now been released in 46 international markets where it has so far grossed $21.2 million after releasing earlier this week in a handful of territories. We'll have more on the overall international performance with tomorrow morning's report. In second is Universal's release of Girls Trip, which is scorching the weekend, delivering an estimated $11.68 million on Friday, heading toward a $29+ million opening. The film should also show long legs looking ahead after receiving a rare "A+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. Finally, Stx's release of EuropaCorp's »

‘Dunkirk’ Cast: Where You’ve Seen Christopher Nolan’s Ensemble Before

19 July 2017 11:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Dunkirk” is finally upon us after months of anticipation, and it’s clear the long wait has been worth it. IndieWire has named the WWII epic the best movie Christopher Nolan has ever made and a certain Oscar contender in the months ahead. As audiences nationwide get to discover why the film is such a monumental war epic, questions as to who exactly is in the cast are bound to come up.

Unlike Nolan’s recent star-driven efforts like “Inception” and “Interstellar,” “Dunkirk” features an eclectic mix of relative newcomers, Oscar winners and the director’s reliable collaborators. Getting a blend of known and unknown talent was crucial for Nolan, as including too many stars would’ve distracted from the urgent nature of the story. In following mostly fresh faces, Nolan is »

Five Things You Didn’t Know About Charlotte Beaumont

29 June 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

One of the most controversial aspects of the entertainment industry in recent years has been the lack of strong roles for women. With trailblazers like Viola Davis, Brie Larson, and Emma Stone leading the way, deeper and more important female characters have become common. One young actress who is a part of this new wave is the highly talented Charlotte Beaumont. Beaumont, although only 21 years of age, has appeared in some of the biggest productions in television and film in the past several years. She has won many fans with her appearances in Eastenders, Broadchurch, and Jupiter Ascending. However,

This New TV Spot For Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets Is Dazzling

9 June 2017 5:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I really, really want Luc Besson’s Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets to do well. The trailers have promised a mind-meltingly, beautiful psychedelic science fiction fantasy that looks to be taking design cues from The Fifth Element. In comparison to the other blockbusters on offer this summer, it stands out by a mile, promising a shot of neon-soaked beauty against the gritty concrete cityscapes of its competition.

But it looks like it’s got its work cut out for it in attracting an audience. First, there’s the unwieldy name. Then there’s the fact that it’s based on a property that’s almost entirely unknown in the Us. And that’s all without mentioning that it kinda looks like famous Wachowski megaflop Jupiter Ascending (which I actually really enjoyed).

Then again, Luc Besson has confounded expectations before. 2014’s very silly evolve-em-up Lucy was a surprise mega hit, »

Netflix’s ‘Sense8’ Cancellation Strikes Many Blows — Including Inclusive, Lgtbq-Friendly Storytelling

1 June 2017 2:49 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The cluster will just have to live on in our imaginations.

On the heels of the news that Netflix has decided to cancel “Sense8” after only two seasons comes a healthy bit of outrage and sadness from fans. The show that meant so much to so many people has been snuffed in its adolescence just as it was testing its wings and settling into what it meant to be.

While the majority of Season 1 was spent in world-building and getting to know the central eight who shared a psychic bond, in Season 2, the cluster — Capheus (Toby Onwumere), Kala (Tina Desai), Lito (Miguel Angel Silvestre), Nomi (Jamie Clayton), Riley (Tuppence Middleton) , Sun (Doona Bae), Will (Brian J. Smith) and Wolfgang (Max Riemelt) — were working in concert to help each other and experience their collective highs and lows. The possibilities of where the story could go from here were endless.

Doha Film Institute partners on 'Loving Vincent'

25 May 2017 3:46 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Dfi reveals co-funding partnership on world’s first fully painted feature

The Doha Film Institute has revealed its participation in animated feature Loving Vincent as a co-financier ahead of the film’s premiere at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival next month.

Written and directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman, the film tells the life story of painter Vincent Van Gogh.

Each of the 65,000 frames of the film is an oil painting, hand-painted by a team of 125 professional artists from across the world.

The artists worked from footage of live performances by actors including Douglas Booth (Jupiter Ascending), Jerome Flynn (Game Of Thrones) and Saorise Ronan (Brookyln) working against green screen, or sets designed to look like Van Gogh’s paintings.

The film is produced by Poland’s BreakThru Films and the UK’s Trademark Films, and co-produced by City of Wroclaw.

The film is also supported by Silver Reel, Rbf Productions »

Luc Besson Creates New Worlds in Final Trailer for ‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets’

24 May 2017 2:17 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Luc Besson is looking to recapture that goofball Fifth Element charm with his latest sci-fi spectacle Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Adapted from the long-running French comic book series Valérian and Laureline, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets follows two 28th century special operatives, Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne), as they attempt to keep order throughout the human territories.

One gets the sense that Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is a tough sell: the title is too long for simple Twitter usage, the comic isn’t overly familiar to American audiences, and the last time Hollywood attempted a big, colorful, confusing space opera with The Wachowskis’ Jupiter Ascending, things didn’t work out too well. The final trailer for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets arrived today, and forgoes focusing on plot to instead showcase the colorful, eye-popping visuals on display. »

Sneak Peek Trailer For Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets Zooms In

18 May 2017 12:53 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s an exciting time for fans of science fiction.

Regardless of whether you prefer engrossing sagas told across multiple chapters (Star Trek: Discovery), or intense, far-flung adventures set in the dark recesses of space (Alien: Covenant), over the next few months the genre is set to churn out a number of high-profile IPs. But if we were to judge each property purely on spectacle alone, few compare to Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

Luc Besson’s long-in-development space oddity mines inspiration from Pierre Christin and artist Jean-Claude Mézières’ cult comic series – simply called Valérian and Laureline – and projects it onto the biggest canvas possible. Boasting jaw-dropping visual effects and a starry cast, on paper, the illustrious French filmmaker has pulled together all of the necessary ingredients for a blockbuster hit, and it’s fair to say that many are already beginning to compare Valerian with The Fifth Element, »

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge in May 2017, and The Best Episodes of Each

1 May 2017 11:08 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

1. “Master of None” (available May 12)

Why Should I Watch It? Aziz Ansari’s debut original series arrived in its first season as a progressive-minded, discussion-oriented, diverse, smart, cinematic, and very, very funny comedy. It’s honestly hard to imagine what more you could ask for a new television show these days, if only considering how many shows are begging for your attention. “Master of None” earns it, and quickly. Season 2 looks to be more of the same — meaning different, which is what we need.

Best Episode: Netflix has a tight lid on Season 2 episodes, but the embargo on reviews lifts Wednesday, May 3, so expect to hear a lot more in a few days.

Dazzling Poster And TV Spot For Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets Showcase Luc Besson’s Space Oddity

28 April 2017 9:02 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Luc Besson, the visionary director behind The Fifth Element and the Scarlett Johansson-led sleeper hit Lucy, is poised for a return to Hollywood’s big leagues later this year with the release of Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets, a wildly ambitious space opera (and possible franchise-starter?) headed up by Dane DeHaan and Suicide Squad‘s Cara Delevingne.

On paper, it’s an exercise in risk-taking for the esteemed French filmmaker, particularly when you consider the similarities between Valerian and Jupiter Ascending – for all of its grandeur and ostentatious scope, the Wachowskis’ box office bomb still wound up costing Warner Bros. a pretty penny. But following the dazzling first trailer, there’s an air of cautious optimism looming large over Luc Besson’s space oddity.

The New Stunning Trailer for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

At least visually Luc Besson seems to bring his A-game with Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, now let’s hope the movie is more The Fifth Element and less Jupiter Ascending. “A dark force threatens Alpha, a vast metropolis and home to species from a thousand planets. Special operatives Valerian and Laureline must […]

Valerian Trailer #2 Takes Cara Delevingne to an Amazing New World

29 March 2017 7:50 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Get ready for some absolutely insane and most definitely expensive looking sci-fi, because the brand new trailer for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets has arrived. There are a lot of comic book movies coming out this year and, without question, this is quite possibly the riskiest one any studio is releasing in 2017. It is a massive movie based on relatively unknown source material from a director who has been hit and miss for more than a decade. But if this movie is good, this could wind up being the sci-fi epic that many moviegoers have been waiting for.

Europa unleashed this brand new, full-length trailer for Valerian today in order to get in on the insane trailer action that has been going on over the last week or so and build some awareness for the upcoming sci-fi flick. The video gives us our best look yet at the movie, »

New Valerian Poster Released… And It’s Kinda Boring

24 March 2017 10:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Luc Besson’s upcoming Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets looks like a psychedelic and pop-infused science fiction extravaganza. A brilliant, Beatles sampling trailer released last November promised a distinctly French-themed space adventure, with a hint that Besson plans to revisit the aesthetic loudness and imagination that’s made The Fifth Element a minor classic.

Expectations are high then, and with the film’s release set for July, EW has now revealed a new poster. And… well, in my humble opinion, it’s a bit rubbish. The trailer showed us a world crammed to the rafters with exciting sights, but this merely shows us stars Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevigne staring moodily at us from inside a gigantic ‘V’ (for Valerian). Helpfully, someone has stencilled their character names on their costumes, probably so nobody picks up the wrong outfit in space school.

It’s way too early to »

EW Review: Life Keeps the Audience on Edge Until the Last Scene — but It’s No Alien

23 March 2017 3:36 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

As much as it wants to be, the new deep-space thriller Life is no Alien. Then again, what is? What could be? When Ridley Scott directed his 1979 no one-can-hear-you-scream masterpiece, there were still rules to break and boundaries to push. He giddily broke and pushed all of them, combining what were dismissed as two distinct and disreputable gutter genres (science fiction and horror) and fusing them into one glorious chest-bursting hybrid. You could be intelligent and graphically gooey at the same time. Who knew? In fact, it was possible that by doing so you could even approach something like art. »

Exclusive: Ariyon Bakare discusses his biggest movie role to date, in sci-fi thriller Life

23 March 2017 8:06 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

Despite having appeared in both Rogue One and Jupiter Ascending, Life marks the first major cinematic role for British actor Ariyon Bakare, and we had the pleasure of sitting down with the talented actor to promote the Daniel Espinosa sci-fi.

We discussed the plausibility of the narrative at hand, and whether that was a selling point, while also pointing towards the sheer horror that derives from the unknown – which the antagonist in this picture(an organism named Calvin) represents.

Bakare also discussed the close-knit nature of the cast and crew, and why he seems to have an inclination for this particular genre – which leads into a brief discussion about shooting the scenes depicting zero gravity, and whether or not he’d ever been tempted to go to space himself one day.

Finally, in light of recent comments made by Samuel L. Jackson concerning black British actors taking on roles in the States, »
