Nothing can stop "Straight Outta Compton."
The N.W.A. biopic smashed expectations last weekend with its $60.2 million debut, and it showed little sign of slowing down this weekend, when it remained on top with an estimated $26.8 million and a ten-day total of $111.5 million. The movie wasn't hurt by any of the obstacles it faced this week, including the premieres of three new wide releases and several days of bad press over "Compton"'s airbrushing of N.W.A. co-founder Dr. Dre's history of abusive behavior toward women.
Despite all that, the combined total earned by this week's three newcomers added up to less than what "Compton" earned in its second weekend. "Sinister 2" opened in third place (behind four-week-old "Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation") with an estimated $10.6 million. "Hitman: Agent 47" came in fourth with an estimated $8.2 million. And "American Ultra" opened at No. 6 with an estimated $5.5 million.

'Sinister 2' poster. 'American Ultra,' 'Hitman: Agent 47' and 'Sinister 2': Weekend box office bombs American Ultra, Hitman: Agent 47, and Sinister 2 are the new entries at the North American box office this weekend, Aug. 21-23, '15. All three of them are expected to underperform – with American Ultra having a particularly disastrous bow, especially for a movie starring Best Actor Oscar nominee Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) and former Twilight star Kristen Stewart. Whether you blame it on a glut of movies targeting the same audience, a lack of major box office draws, or poor reviews, only one of the debutantes is expected to score more than $10 million at U.S. and Canadian theaters by Sunday evening. 'Sinister 2' According to early estimates found at Deadline.com, Ciarán Foy's Sinister 2 will lead the pack of newcomers with »

'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' 2015: Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer. 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' movie is a domestic box office bomb: Will it be saved by international filmgoers? Directed by Sherlock Holmes' Guy Ritchie and toplining Man of Steel star Henry Cavill and The Lone Ranger costar Armie Hammer, the Warner Bros. release The Man from U.N.C.L.E. has been a domestic box office disaster, performing about 25 percent below – already quite modest – expectations. (See also: “'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' Movie: Bigger Box Office Flop Than Expected.”) This past weekend, the $80 million-budget The Man from U.N.C.L.E. collected a meager $13.42 million from 3,638 North American theaters, averaging $3,689 per site. After five days out, the big-screen reboot of the popular 1960s television series starring Robert Vaughn and David McCallum has taken in a mere $16.77 million. For comparison's sake: »

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.
Without further ado, here's what's coming up...
One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »
Kirschenbaum, who was Universal’s co-president of production, and Roth, a veteran producer and executive, worked together last on “Snow White and the Huntsman.” The duo will be reunited as Roth brings the 2012 film’s sequel to the bigscreen.
The new venture will be called Roth/Kirschenbaum Films. Roth made the move to take on the new partner just about a week after losing creative partner Palak Patel to Sony Pictures. Patel took a job as an executive vice president for production under Tom Rothman and Doug Belgrad at the Culver City studio.
In Kirschenbaum, Roth gets a partner who has been associated with many big event films, including installments in the “Fast & Furious” and “Bourne” franchises. Kirschenbaum joined Universal as a director of development in 2001. He became VP of production »

Jeff Kirschenbaum has left his post as co-president of production at Universal Pictures to launch a new company with “The Huntsman” producer Joe Roth that will be called Roth Kirschenbaum Films, it was announced Friday. Roth and Kirschenbaum first collaborated on the box office hit “Snow White and the Huntsman” and worked together again on its upcoming sequel, “The Huntsman.” Kirschenbaum also developed Roth’s adaptation of “The School of Good and Evil” at Universal. “I am proud and lucky to have Jeff as my partner. His work on the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise has been great, and he has been a. »

"We're gonna eat you guys." A cannibal horror comedy set on Halloween night, Gravy has been slated for an October 2nd limited theatrical release and an October 6th Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD release from Shout! Factory. If you're hungry for a taste of this new film, the official trailer has been revealed.
Equally funny and frightening, doused in blood, and featuring plenty of toe-curling moments (including a cheese grater to the face snippet), the trailer for Gravy should place this film prominently on the watch list of horror hounds looking for a unique melding of Halloween, blood-splattered horror comedy, and cannibalistic scares.
"An irreverent, daring and wickedly-fun horror comedy, Gravy walks a perfect line of tension and release, laughs and scares. It’s Halloween night. A trio of costumed misfits with very special dietary requirements seizes a Mexican cantina and force the staff to engage in a late night of gluttony. »

Add Emily Blunt to the very long list of people who have the hots for…Charlize Theron. The Into the Woods star and the Oscar winner just wrapped The Huntsman, the sequel to the 2012 hit Snow White and the Huntsman. "It was so much fun," Blunt told me last night at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's grants banquet at the Beverly Wilshire hotel. "I loved working with all those people and Charlize is my new girl crush, for sure." Blunt's hubby John Krasinski chimed in, "She's my new girl crush, too. She said I'm allowed to say that." That doesn't mean Theron is Krasinki's hall pass. "You don't have a pass yet," Blunt said. »
Buoyed by a strong box office haul overseas, it was two years ago when Paramount officially issued the green light on Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters 2, but since then all has been quiet on the fantastical front. Over the weekend, though, Deadline broke news of the sequel finally beginning to pick up speed at the studio, with Bruno Aveillan supplanting Timmy Wirkola in the director’s chair.
Set to make his feature film debut, Aveillan has carved out a reputation for his commercial work hitherto, and it looks as though he’ll be overseeing Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton’s titular, monster-hunting siblings for Witch Hunters 2. Having passed on directorial duties, it’s understood that Wirkola – who helmed the 2013 sleeper hit – has penned an early version of the screenplay, and that the biggest hurdle currently facing the industry heads at Paramount is working around Renner’s bustling schedule.

Five months after being named head of Sony Pictures, Tom Rothman is making his first substantial restructuring of his leadership team — consolidating his position with the appointment of two new executives at the studio’s flagship Columbia Pictures and naming a new president of the TriStar label, according to a person familiar with the moves.
Rothman is moving his former right-hand from TriStar, David Beaubaire, to Columbia, where he will become an executive vice president of production. Beaubaire will be joined at Columbia by Palak Patel, who is leaving his post as president of production at Roth Films to also become exec VP of production at Columbia. Taking over Rothman’s former job as president of TriStar will be Hannah Minghella, who most recently served as co-head of production at Columbia.
All three of the newly appointed executives will report to Doug Belgrad, who remains president of Sony’s Motion Picture Group. »

At least 10 movie productions appear among 145 debtors listed in Relativity’s bankruptcy filing so far. The limited companies’ names mimic titles of the films in question. The movies vary from specialized fare such as Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s feature directing debut Don Jon to major releases like Mirror Mirror, Relativity’s Snow White story that came out ahead of Universal’s more successful Snow White And The Huntsman back in 2012. Specific creditors are not listed for… »
There’s a moment in the daisy field of Henry Hobson’s Maggie where Maggie (Abigail Breslin) begs her father Wade Vogel (Arnold Schwarzenegger) to please make the pain of ‘the turn’ stop and kill her and all I could think was Yes! please make this painfully slow film stop and if not, please put me out of my misery by killing me first.
Alas, neither of us were that lucky but as the final credits rolled and I awoke from the film’s induced catalepsy, I slowly began to appreciate -despite it’s snail paced everything- just how ballsy this cross-genre debut feature really is.
It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea but if you do fancy a challenge, it’s nice to at least go in somewhat prepared for the extremely delicate observation of terminal illness and the emotional toil it inflicts within a family.

It's been several months since we've heard about anything from the Kristen Stewart-less Snow White And The Huntsman prequel, aptly titled The Hunstman, but it's not exactly a project anyone's clamoring for. While it did garner some interest when Frank Darabont was on-board, he's long since left the project, leaving it in the hands of Cedric Nicolas-Troyan.... Read More »
