When you have a television show as groundbreaking and zeitgeist-hitting as Breaking Bad, it is good news for the stars, as its Emmy-winning key cast members have been able to carve out new careers on the big screen.

Lionsgate’s “Allegiant,” the third installment of the studio’s teen-centric sci-fi “Divergent Series,” debuted at No. 1 on the Npd VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart the week ended July 17.
The film’s solid home video performance follows an underwhelming box office run that saw it take in just $66.2 million at U.S. theaters, about half the tally of its predecessor, “Insurgent.” The final installment of the franchise will skip theaters and head to TV, as Variety first reported Wednesday.
Sony Pictures’ faith-based “Miracles From Heaven” also enjoyed a healthy home video bow, taking No. 2 in the wake of a $61.7 million domestic box office run, selling 60% as many units as “Allegiant.”

The studio pacted with YouTube to invite eight up-and-coming creators to shoot scary short films at YouTube Space New York, on new sets inspired by the “Lights Out” movie. The videos are slated to go live Friday, one week ahead of the July 22 debut of “Lights Out,” a New Line Cinema presentation distributed by Warner Bros. The shorts will appear on the individual creator channels, as well as the YouTube Space channel, the official Warner Bros. YouTube channel and promoted through social media platforms.

When Rebecca left home, she thought she left her childhood fears behind.

But this time, as Rebecca gets closer to unlocking the truth, there is no denying that all their lives are in danger…once the lights go out. »

With almost no high-profile new releases to impact the charts the week ended July 10, DreamWorks Animation’s “Kung Fu Panda 3,” distributed by 20th Century Fox, earned a second week atop the Npd VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.
Holding onto the No. 2 spot on both charts for a second week was Walt Disney Studios’ “Zootopia,” which in its fifth week sold 78% as many copies as the “Panda” sequel in its second (and 71% as many Blu-ray copies).
Moving up a spot to No. 3 on both charts was Fox’s “Deadpool,” in its ninth week.
On the Blu-ray chart, “13 Hours” was No. 4, with Disney’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” moving back up to No. »

Chiwetel Ejiofor is one of Hollywood’s most versatile actors, taking on a variety of roles that showcase his talent. For his next role, Deadline reports that the Oscar-nominated actor is in talks to join the cast of Garth Davis’ “Mary Magdalene.”
Ejiofor will play Peter, one of Jesus’ 12 apostles and his lead disciple. Peter was a fisherman and according to the New Testament, was with Jesus during events witnessed by only a few apostles, such as the Transfiguration. He is known for denying the Son of Christ three times, only to be forgiven after the Resurrection. He is believed to have been crucified in Rome under Emperor Nero Augustus Caesar, crucified upside down at his own request, believing himself unworthy to be crucified upright as Jesus was.

Woody Harrelson is in talks to join Rob Reiner’s Iraq war film “Shock And Awe.” According to Deadline, the political charged picture centers on a group of journalists investigating the assertions by the Bush Administration about Saddam Hussein’s alleged weapons of mass destruction, the reason given by the administration for the invasion of Iraq.
“Shock And Awe” is written by Joey Hartstone, who also penned Reiner’s “Lbj” film and features Harrelson. Reiner has had the project in development for several years and is finally scheduled to start production this year.

Reiner, Matthew George and Michele Reiner are producing, with Jorva Entertainment financing. The company previously partnered with Reiner on his drama “Being Charlie,” which premiered last year at the Toronto Film Festival.

Reiner has been developing the project for several years through his Castle Rock banner. Jorva Entertainment has come on board to finance.
The “Shock and Awe” script, written by “LBJ” screenwriter Joey Hartsone, centers around journalists investigating the assertions by the Bush Administration about Saddam Hussein’s alleged weapons of mass destruction as a pretext for invading Iraq in 2003. The film is scheduled for production later this year.
The term “shock and awe” was employed by U.S. defense officials to describe their plan for invading Iraq.

The delicately balanced foolishness of Now You See Me gives way to impossibly supernatural magic tricks aimed at thwarting the least menacing villain ever. I’m “biast” (pro): liked the first movie
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
It was delicately balanced foolishness that allowed Now You See Me to work. No such luck this time out: the second outing with the Four Horsemen, street magicians turned modern-day Robin Hoods, starts out dumb and illogical and rapidly descends into the fantastically idiotic.
Jesse Eisenberg (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Woody Harrelson (Triple 9), and Dave Franco (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising) are joined by a new “girl Horseman,” Lizzy Caplan (The Night Before); Isla Fisher wisely chose not to return, perhaps because she realized that no matter how many painfully wannabe-ironic jokes the script makes about the token girl, “the »

It took another animated family feature with a huge box office haul to dislodge Walt Disney Studios’ “Zootopia” from the top spot on the national home video sales charts.
“Kung Fu Panda 3,” the third installment in the series about bumbling panda Po and his mastery of the martial arts to save his panda peeps from adversity, bowed at No. 1 on both the Npd VideoScan overall disc sales chart and the Blu-ray Disc-only sales chart.
The DreamWorks Animation film, distributed by 20th Century Fox, earned $143.5 million in theaters and once again features an all-star voice cast that includes Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman and Bryan Cranston (of “Breaking Bad” fame).
“Zootopia,” the animated “buddy cop” film about a rabbit cop and a red fox con that earned $340.8 million in U.S. theaters, slid to No. 2 on both charts after three years at the top.
On the overall disc chart, Universal Pictures »

There’s something about Marauders that prevents this familiarly-generic crime thriller from becoming a grungy haze of bullets and backstabbing – Christopher Meloni. The long-time Law & Order: Svu star/two-time “crazy cook talking to a can of vegetables” does what he does best: broods, confronts and conjures vein-popping intensity like pulling a rabbit from a thug’s beanie.
Director Steven C. Miller charters familiar action-centric territory with atmospheric ease, while writers Chris Sivertson and Michael Cody draw up an inside-the-box thriller that might have tanked without Meloni leading the charge. You won’t be blown away by this VOD-bound mystery, but fans of good-cop-bad-cop suspense will enjoy tagging along with this serviceable squad of hometown “heroes.”
That, or you’ll chuckle at how “human golem” Dave Bautista looks like he’s about to bust out of every cheap FBI jumper.
Christopher Meloni stars as Special Agent Montgomery, a Cincinnati-based FBI operative »

★★☆☆☆ Triple 9 is nothing if not muddled. Toplined by an all-star cast including Kate Winslet and Woody Harrelson, John Hillcoat's latest is a messy and unsophisticated cop drama that quickly stumbles into a spiritless slumber. Michael (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and his crack band of crooked cops and ex-military professionals - Anthony Mackie, Aaron Paul, Norman Reedus and Clifton Collins Jr. - pull off a bank heist for Russian mafia matriarch Irina (Kate Winslet) despite one or two hiccups. But instead of walking away scot-free, the crew are blackmailed into another, riskier heist on Homeland Security.

Earlier this month, filmmaker James Wan returned to the horror genre with his hit sequel The Conjuring 2, which has done quite well at the box office over the past few weeks. Next month, the filmmaker produces what could be one of the scariest movies this summer with Lights Out, hitting theaters July 22. To get fans ready for this horror-thriller, Warner Bros. has released the second terrifying trailer.
The first trailer debuted back in March, but we haven't heard much about this thriller since then. Warner Bros. did promote this movie during its CinemaCon presentation in April. With the success of James Wan's The Conjuring 2, it could be a good omen for Lights Out, although it will face quite the heavy hitter when it arrives in theaters July 22, going up against Paramount's Star Trek Beyond. We'll have to wait and see if the horror hounds or the sci-fi set will claim that weekend. »
A new Woody Allen feature is around the corner (see our Cannes review of Cafe Society), which means it is time to get the news about the director’s next feature. In the meantime, he’s busy as ever, finishing up work on his 6-episode Amazon TV series in which he leads alongside Miley Cyrus, Elaine May, John Magaro, and Rachel Brosnahan. He’s now found the lead for his 2017 film, and it’s an actor he has yet to work with.
According to Variety, Kate Winslet will lead the film, set to shoot next fall. As usual, Allen is writing, directing and producing the film alongside his recurring producers. While there’s no logline let, Allen did let slip to Vox that his next film will be set in a amusement park. If he can have it his way, it’ll be at Coney Island, otherwise expect him to »

Woody Allen never stops working. For the latest case in point, consider the news from Variety that Kate Winslet is set to star in his next film despite the fact that “Café Society” has yet to be released. Somewhat remarkably for the prolific, ensemble-friendly writer/director, Allen has never worked with Winslet before.
Other than the fact that it’s slated to begin production this fall, few other concrete details are available as of yet: The film has no title, premise, release date or other casting news. Winslet received an Oscar nomination for her performance in “Steve Jobs” and more recently appeared in John Hillcoat’s crime thriller “Triple 9.”
As per custom, Allen will write, »
