This ranking includes only new theatrical releases viewed for the awards year of 2016 (for eligibility for the Academy Awards and the Ofcs and Awfj awards); some films released in the UK without Us releases (and so ineligible for those awards this year) may also be included, for my own bookkeeping purposes. Links go to my review. Numbers after each entry are Date First Viewed/NYC Release Date/London Release Date; year is 2016 unless otherwise noted.

ComicMix Six: Box Office Democracy’s Worst Movies of 2016

12 January 2017 8:15 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Last time, I covered the best movies of 2016— and now it’s time for the flip side. Brace yourself.

#6: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – In my top list I praised Captain America: Civil War for being a kind of triumphant pinnacle of fan service in comic book movies. Batman v Superman might well be the dark mirror of that idea: fan service run completely amok.  Characters are crammed in this movie every which way along with vague concepts, half-formed ideas, and every frame of iconic superhero artwork Zack Snyder has ever seen.  Batman v Superman is depressing both in tone and failed potential.  The Superman that Snyder puts on the screen is the worst interpretation of the character I’ve ever seen, impulsive and violent without a trace of warmth.  Only the moderately badass Wonder Woman sequences save this movie from higher placement on this list, and they »

‘Blair Witch’ Tops Among New DVD Releases

11 January 2017 5:15 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With few new releases in the first week of the new year, the top five disc sellers are unchanged from the previous week.

Sony Pictures’ “The Magnificent Seven” enjoyed a third week at No. 1 on the Npd VideoScan disc sales chart, which tracks combined Blu-ray Disc and DVD sales, for the week ended Jan. 8.

Warner’s “Suicide Squad” again finished second, Universal Pictures’ “The Secret Life of Pets” remained in third place, and two more Warner titles held flat at No. 4 and No. 5: “Sully” and “Storks.”

The highest-ranking newcomer was Lionsgate’s “Blair Witch,” the belated third installment in the “found footage” horror franchise that began with 1999’s “The Blair Witch Project.” The film, with a domestic gross of $20.8 million, debuted at No. 7 on the overall disc sales chart, behind Paramount’s “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” which again finished the week at No. 6.

On the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart, »

8 January 2017 2:00 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Golden Globe awards are airing tonight on NBC, which in essence kicks off the annual awards season race celebrating the year's best movies. There is also another awards ceremony that hands out awards to the year's "worst" movies, the Golden Raspberry Awards, a.k.a. the Razzies. While we'll likely have to wait a short while for the full nominations to be unveiled, the 2017 Razzies short list has been unveiled, and it seems that Warner Bros.' blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has found itself in almost every category.

The nominations short list was unveiled by a YouTube user dubbed "truthhopelove," who took a video showing an email he received which features the 2017 Razzie nominations short list. The email reveals that voting will close on January 16, although the nominations won't be released until a few days later.

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Leads The Razzie Nominations Shortlist

7 January 2017 12:46 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As we head into the thick of awards season, it’s time to celebrate all the incredible films that 2016 brought us. La La Land, Moonlight, Manchester by the Sea, Deadpool and Arrival will no doubt find themselves on the lips of many moviegoers over the next few weeks, while talent like Amy Adams, Casey Affleck, Emma Stone, Adam Driver and Denzel Washington, among others, will also start picking up some serious buzz.

But, as the best of the best start to take up most of the spotlight, there’s another another awards ceremony gearing up to get underway, and it’ll be celebrating very different types of movies and actors/actresses. We are, of course, referring to the Razzie Awards, which shine a light on the worst that the year had to offer.

Italy’s Box Office Down 6% in 2016 Despite Strong Local Movies

5 January 2017 5:34 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Box office in Italy dropped 6% in 2016 to 618 million euros ($648 million) despite a slew of strong local titles, especially smash hit “Quo Vado?”, which single-handedly accounted for more than 10% of the year’s total haul.

Ticket sales were down 3% to 99.4 million,  just under the 100 million admissions benchmark below which the year is considered a negative one. The figures were released Thursday by comScore.

Homegrown films, and not just “Quo Vado” (pictured), proved crucial to luring Italians into movie theaters. But U.S. movies still nabbed 17 out of the top 20 spots on Italy’s 2016 box office chart.

“Vado,” which stars local sensation Checco Zalone as a Southern Italian slacker hellbent on holding on to his parasitic government job, hit a national nerve amid rising unemployment. The timely comedy pulverized all records for an Italian movie at local turnstiles, making 65 million euros ($68 million),

The No. 2 title of 2016 was also locally produced: “Perfect »

This VFX breakdown video for Arrival is fascinating

5 January 2017 4:38 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

Denis Villeneuve’s cerebral sci-fi Arrival surprised many last year and looks set for awards glory in February. It was voted the Best Film of 2016 by the online film writers community in our poll at the end of last year and made many of our top ten lists. Today we have a better look at some of the less visible artistry that went into making the film the spectacle it was.

The Quebec-based VFX house Oblique FX have been adding their touch of magic to recent projects such as this impeccable work on Villeneuve’s previous film Sicario. Their latest work, as seen in the full video below, gives an idea of the seamless integration of their VFX into the raw footage shot by the director. One notable aspect mentioned on the Reddit forums this was posted to today is the fact that the fog in the »

Superhero movies dominate list of illegal downloads as box-office takings for Warcraft and Independence Day: Resurgence are dented

According to the site, precise figures are not available because, in the current reporting environment, it is more challenging to monitor downloads. But it says its estimates are based on several sources, including public BitTorrent trackers.

5 Box Office Lessons From 2016: From Franchise Fatigue to Fading Movie Stars

1 January 2017 8:26 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Finding Dory,” “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” “The Secret Life of Pets” and other blockbusters helped drive the domestic box office to record heights in 2016. However, it’s not like moviegoing suddenly saw a surge in popularity. Attendance was essentially flat with last year’s 1.32 billion and a far cry from the record 1.57 billion admissions from 2002. The record came from a new high-water mark in ticket prices, as well as the added cost that comes with Imax and 3D releases.

Overseas, the numbers are still being tallied, but many experts believe that a slowdown in China will lead to revenue declines.

The story of 2016, when it is written, will be a mixed one. Despite the rise of streaming services and quality television, the movie business continues to be resilient. Audiences are still turning up en masse for the new Star Wars or Avengers films, regardless of how adept “Game of Thrones »
