‘Lucy’ Beating Up ‘Hercules’ at Friday Box Office

3 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Scarlett Johansson is overpowering Dwayne Johnson in their first skirmish for supremacy at the U.S. box office with her “Lucy” heading for a $38 million opening weekend — $10 million ahead of “Hercules.”

Early estimates placed Universal Pictures’ “Lucy” on track for $14 million to $15 million on Friday, including $2.7 million from 2,386 late Thursday screenings. That leaves the weekend ranging between $37 million and $39 million at 3,173 locations.

Johansson, playing a woman accidentally turned superhuman and seeking vengeance, has already established herself as an action star as Black Widow in the Marvel movies. The R-rated thriller, directed by Luc Besson, carries a $40 million budget from Besson’s EuropaCorp.

Lucy” leads the weekend’s ticket sales on online ticket service Fandango and is outselling previous action thrillers “Oblivion,” “Elysium” and “Edge of Tomorrow” at the same point in the sales cycle.

Early Friday estimates for Johnson’s “Hercules” ranged from $10 million to $11 million, including $2.1 million for late Thursday screenings at 2,053 theaters. »

Social Media Buzz: ‘Lucy’ to Out Muscle ‘Hercules’ at the Box Office

6 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Does digital data offer indicators that can be used to monitor marketing effectiveness and predict box office success even before awareness turns into intent? We analyzed this weekend’s new movies across Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Google (the methodology behind the numbers is laid out in the appendix below) over the seven days leading up to their release, when marketing campaigns should be at their peak.


Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson faces off against two foes as Hercules: Scarlett Johansson goes one-on-one with The Great One as ass-kicking sci-fi star “Lucy” and Kellen Lutz, who played the same role in “Legend of Hercules” earlier this year. The “Twilight” favorite fought his way to an $8.8 million opening. It seems certain that WWE’s most electrifying man in all of entertainment will win the “Hercules” battle, but who will win this weekend’s war?

The Atlas-sian shoulders of Johnson have carried the weight of the marketing campaign. »

‘Star Wars,’ ‘Superman’ Inspire New ‘Avengers’ Score

24 July 2014 5:06 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Composer Brian Tyler’s score for Marvel’s “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” will try to pay homage to the music of films like “Star Wars,” “Superman” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”

Those films “changed the game,” the composer said during the Musical Anatomy of a Superhero panel at Comic-Con on Thursday in San Diego. “It’s the template for ‘The Avengers’ coming up.”

That’s good news for fans of superhero movie music who have seen a bi-polar split between the serious sound of more recent Batman and Superman movies at DC and the triumphant and bombastic sounds of Marvel’s films.

“Marvel’s vibe is more old school, more heroic,” said Tyler Bates (“Guardians of the Galaxy”). “DC seems darker, post-apocalyptic.”

John Ottman, who recently scored “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” said the now-classic “Superman” and “Batman” scores by John Williams and Danny Elfman served as a “resurrection of the film score. »

'Lucy' to Beat Up 'Hercules' This Weekend

24 July 2014 4:31 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Friday Am Update: Lucy and Hercules both did solid business on Thursday night. Lucy earned an estimated $2.75 million, while Hercules scored an estimated $2.1 million. Among Summer releases, Lucy is above The Purge: Anarchy ($2.6 million), while Hercules topped Edge of Tomorrow ($1.8 million). For the weekend, both movies are going to earn at least $20 million.Forecast: On the final weekend of July, two very different action movies will try to reverse the domestic box office's downward trend. Hercules has a much bigger budget and arguably more star power in Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, but the sword-and-sandals epic doesn't appear to be connecting with moviegoers. In contrast, Lucy's eye-catching visuals and intriguing "what if" story has put it on pace for an opening north of $30 million, which should be enough to take first place this weekend.At the start of Summer, Lucy's box office potential didn't look so hot. The movie was scheduled for August 8th, »

Warner Bros. Picks Up 'Arabian Nights' 7-Movie Franchise

23 July 2014 2:51 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. has acquired a 90-page "script-ment" from new writer David Weil that lays out a massive seven-movie franchise based on the inter-connected stories from The Arabian Nights.

The writer's vision is to re-imagine these classic stories, which are in the public domain, as period tales that have modern themes for a big-budget CGI fantasy adventure tentpole. The "script-ment" is essentially a bible for what David Weil sees as a long-running franchise.

3 Arts, the production company run by producer Erwin Stoff, represents the writer and brought the project to Warner Bros., where they collaborated on numerous projects including the sci-fi thriller Edge of Tomorrow starring Tom Cruise.

The Arabian Nights, a.k.a. One Thousand and One Nights, dates back centuries ago, with the first English-language version published in 1706. The Arabian Nights is a compilation of numerous folks stories from ancient Arabic, Persian, Indian, Egyptian and Mesopotamian folklore.

Warner Bros is Still Trying to Make Their Live-Action 'Akira' Happen

22 July 2014 9:31 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Nearly a year ago, word came that Warner Bros. was reviving their efforts to turn the iconic Japanese anime Akira into a live-action film again. The studio was working on bringing Unknown director Jaume Collet-Serra back into the fray to direct the film with an eye towards beginning production in early 2014. But that time frame has come and gone, and here we are in the middle of summer with no update. That is until a small blurb in Deadline (via The Playlist) popped up recently which says Dante Harper, who wrote the initial script for Edge of Tomorrow (also originally a Japanese property) has been working on the script. Of course, that's all we know for now. But we suppose it's good to know that Warner Bros. is trying to get the project off the ground still. We're just not sure if the project can live up to the expectations of fans around the world. »

5 things Hollywood learned about Latino moviegoers this summer

22 July 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

For kids in school, summer is typically spent catching up on reading lists and assigned homework between hours spent at the swimming pool and with friends at summer camp (not necessarily in that order). But many professionals working in the entertainment industry—whether as producers, journalists, actors, or producers—spent this summer learning about Latino moviegoers. (That’s largely thanks to an exclusive series on Hispanic film consumers published at TheWrap.)

From the growing importance of Hispanic females at the box office to the expanding movie preferences of Latino film fans, here are a few essential—takeaways about Hispanics that »

Edge Of Tomorrow Scribe To Write Akira Adaptation

22 July 2014 9:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Looks like we weren’t the only ones impressed by Edge of Tomorrow. Recently, it was revealed that Dante Harper, the first screenwriter to work on the Tom Cruise sci-fi action-adventure, has been hired by Warner Bros. to pen the script for a live-action Akira adaptation.

The troubled project currently has Non-Stop director Jaume Collet-Serra set to helm, who previously said he’d backed away from the adaptation over concerns with the script. Evidently, Warner Bros. is still invested in moving Akira forward, and the studio has opted to stump up the cash to hire a red-hot writer to do just that. Edge of Tomorrow was a terrific, extremely well-written film, so I’m hopeful that Harper has what it takes to finally get this project off the ground.

Just looking at Akira, it’s easy to see why Warner Bros. has struggled in getting it past early development stages. »

'Akira' Nabs A New Writer

22 July 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The live-action adaptation of Akira has just received a new writer. Deadline reports that Dante Harper has been brought on to work with director Jaume Collet-Serra on the latest draft of the script. Ironically, Harper's biggest credit as a writer is one he doesn't get...credit for. It was Harper's spec script, based on Hiroshi Sakurazaka's "All You Need Is Kill" that gave us the wonderfully under-appreciated gem Edge of Tomorrow. Despite his script being what created that film adaptation, he got passed over in the credits by the three writers that took later passes at the screenplay.

Regardless, Harper is now set to collaborate with Collet-Serra on a new take of the beloved title Akira. The property began it's pop culture life as a Japanese manga by Katsuhiro Otomo back in 1980. In the years to follow, it would get an anime adaptation, and video games based on it. »

Interview with the Vampire 20th Anniversary Blu-ray coming

22 July 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment have announced a 20th anniversary re-release of Neil Jordan’s much-loved vampire tale, Interview With The Vampire, in time to celebrate the film’s big anniversary. The brand-new version will include a new exclusive featurette, as well as all the extra features that were included in the 2008 release. No technical specifications have yet been announced.

When grieving 18th century mortal Louis (Brad Pitt, 12 Years A Slave, World War Z) accepts an offer of everlasting life from charismatic vampire Lestat (Tom Cruise, Edge of Tomorrow, Jack Reacher), he quickly realizes that his dark gift is also a curse that requires him to kill to survive. An eternity of blood, lust and torment awaits in this thrilling and visually stunning film that redefined the vampire genre.

The Blu-ray will include:

'Akira' Lives With New Writer On Board Live Action Reboot

22 July 2014 6:39 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

By the time the Tom Cruise-starring “Edge of Tomorrow” will likely clear the $100 million domestic box office threshold, it will have been in theaters for two months. Yet despite the underperformance stateside, the film is doing very well overseas with grosses adding up to $261 million. The international box office—which is responsible for nearly 3/4 of the film’s worldwide haul—may explain why Warner Bros. is looking at one of the writers of the Doug Liman-helmed film to take a crack at another beloved Japanese property. Deadline reports that Dante Harper has been tapped by the studio to write a new draft of the long-gestating remake of “Akira.” It’s interesting to note that Harper doesn’t have an official writer’s credit on “Edge of Tomorrow”—or any official writing credits—as a trio of other writers were awarded the credit instead. As for the movie, it's »

Edge of Tomorrow screenwriter to pen live-action Akira adaptation

22 July 2014 1:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A live-action adaptation of the Katsuhiro Otomo manga Akira has been in the works for quite some time now, and has even fallen off the rails once or twice. The project is officially underway once more at Warner Brothers, from Orphan director Jaume Collet-Serra, and a new report claims that Edge of Tomorrow screenwriter Dante Harper is working on the script.

The news actually flew under the radar last week, as it was hidden within another news story over on Deadline. The throwaway comment could have easily been a news story in and of itself, considering how many people are dying to see an Akira film get made, but sometimes that’s just the way it goes in Tinseltown.

Harper wasn’t the only writer on Edge of Tomorrow, but penned the first draft of the script, back when it was still called All You Need Is Kill. He’s »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Gets Rave Reviews And A New 5-Minute Clip

21 July 2014 6:57 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It has been a very good year to be a fan of action-packed blockbusters. April and May brought audiences the one-two punch of strong Marvel movies Captain America: The Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Future Past, while Edge of Tomorrow and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes have thrilled moviegoers through June and July. Now, the big August tentpole – Marvel’s much-anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy – should keep with the high quality of this blockbuster season. In fact, if early reviews are to be believed, James Gunn’s space-set action-comedy is the best Marvel film yet.

Check out the reactions below:

Marvel’s @Guardians is magnificent. Hilarious, touching, action packed, I don’t think I could’ve liked it more. @JamesGunn killed it. Wow.

Akira Movie to Be Written by Edge Of Tomorrow Screenwriter

21 July 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A little nugget of information went under the radar last week in article over at Deadline. They report that the first screenwriter to work on the script for Tom Cruise's Edge of Tomorrow, Dante Harper, is currently writing the script for Warner Bros' live-action adaptation of Akira.

I'm surprised this movie is still in development! The studio has been trying to get this project off the ground for years, and for one reason or another they've never been able to get it into production. 

Orphan director Jaume Collet-Serra is currently attached to helm the project. Edge of Tomorrow was such a great, well-written movie, and I think Harper might have the talent to deliver a solid script to the studio. 

I'm glad that this movie hasn't been made yet. I have a fear that the WB is going to butcher the story. If the movie actually moves into production, »
