Rob Cohen’s ‘Hurricane Heist’ Lands at Entertainment Studios
Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures has acquired Rob Cohen’s action feature “The Hurricane Heist” for North American theatrical distribution and plans a first-quarter release.

Tyler Perry, Lionsgate Partner on Another Madea Movie

Tyler Perry, Lionsgate Partner on Another Madea Movie
Tyler Perry and Lionsgate will partner on two more films, one of which will be a Madea movie.

The announcement comes on the heels of the box office success of “Boo! A Madea Halloween,” which has made $56.5 million domestically on a $20 million budget. Perry has been a staple of Lionsgate’s slates, with the studio releasing the likes of “Madea’s Witness Protection,” “Madea Goes to Jail,” and “Alex Cross,” all of which featured the actor. Together they have made nearly 20 films. Madea is the truth-telling grandmother character that Perry created and essays on screen. Critics tend to hate the films, but they have a loyal and devoted fanbase.

Lionsgate did not give any details about the other Perry project.

Lionsgate chief Jon Feltheimer announced that the studio would continue to be in the Perry business on a call with analysts following the company’s quarterly earnings release. Lionsgate also

Top 10 Takeaways: Movie Star Brands Tyler Perry and Tom Cruise Boost Box Office

Top 10 Takeaways: Movie Star Brands Tyler Perry and Tom Cruise Boost Box Office
This weekend’s openers did not look like standouts on paper. But two star vehicles, Tyler Perry’s “Boo! A Madea Halloween” (Lionsgate) and Tom Cruise’s “Jack Reacher: Never Look Back” (Paramount), both exceeded their expected $20 million openings. The reason? They gave moviegoers, who may be feeling a tad rattled during this tempestuous election season, something familiar and safe.

Add in the middling “Ouija: Origin of Evil” (Universal) and the flop “Keeping Up With the Joneses” (20th Century Fox) and the unusually heavy release schedule (before the must-to-avoid Halloween weekend) reversed recent sliding gross totals. Temporary? We’ll see. But it’s better news for sure.

The Top Ten

1. Boo! A Madea Halloween (Lionsgate) New – Cinemascore: A; Metacritic: 34; Est. budget: $20 million

$27,600,000 in 2,260 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $12,212; Cumulative: $27,600,000

2. Jack Reacher: Never Look Back (Paramount) New – Cinemascore: B+; Metacritic: 47 ; Est. budget: $60 million

$23,000,000 in 3,780 theaters; PTA: $6,085; Cumulative: $23,000,000

The Weekend Warrior 10/7/16: The Girl on a Train, Birth of a Nation, Middle School, Newtown

  • LRM Online
Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.

This Past Weekend:

Another bad weekend where nothing really popped, which is bad news for a month at the box office where only Clint Eastwood’s Sully exceeded any expectations. Tim Burton’s new film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children came out just below my predictions with $29 million, but the Mark Wahlberg-Peter Berg disaster flick Deepwater Horizon was right around where I predicted with $20.2 million. The comedy Masterminds tanked with just $6.5 million for the weekend to end up in sixth place while Disney’s The Queen of Katwe did slightly better than predicted with $2.5 million.

The first full weekend in October has a good deal of competition from the release of the video game Mafia III to the

Zoo Review: Season 2 Is Unabashedly Crazy Like a (Feral, CGI'd) Fox

Zoo Review: Season 2 Is Unabashedly Crazy Like a (Feral, CGI'd) Fox
If Tuesday’s two-hour premiere was any indication, CBS’ Zoo is going all in with Season 2.

Whereas Season 1 of the James Patterson adaptation took things a bit seriously as it explored the mystery of a manmade genetic mutation within the entire animal kingdom that turned our fine feathered and furry friends against us, Season 2 — or at least the effects-laden premiere, which for all I know blew the entire budget — is going full-tilt bananas (no pun intended, monkeys). We’ve got multi-animal assaults, a luxury jet that would make S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Zephyr jealous, new characters and

Rob Cohen to Direct a Disaster Action Thriller 'Category 5'

  • LRM Online
The past decade hasn't been too kind to director Rob Cohen. The director, who is perhaps best known for directing Vin Diesel in the "Fast and the Furious" and "xXx" in the early 2000s hasn't done much for me to be excited about in recent years. In 2005, he directed "Stealth," the forgettable plane movie starring Jamie Foxx. In 2008, he directed the third "Mummy" flick, which effectively ended the franchise. In 2012, he directed the terrible "Alex Cross" movie, and most recently, he helmed the Jennifer Lopez vehicle "Boy Next Door," which wasn't any better received by viewers or critics.

It's now been revealed that Cohen will be going back to the crazy silly action genre with "Category 5," a film that "follows a team of tech hackers who infiltrate a U.S. Mint facility on a small coastal town to steal $102M in cash, just as a disastrous Category 5 hurricane, the storm of the century,
