Post-Holiday Weekend Box Office: Three Top Films Battle for Placement

30 December 2012 10:34 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Three juggernauts grossing $28 million or more dominated a strong post-Christmas weekend, all jockeying for position since last Tuesday. The shakeout led to the top film on December 25 ("Les Miserables") falling to third by the weekend, beat out by top dog "The Hobbit" followed by "Django Unchained." But all three films contributed to a weekend total more than 20% above last year's results. A fourth new release, "Parental Guidance," ended up overperforming despite receiving virtually none of the attention nabbed by the top three. These numbers managed to push total annual box office to a new record --an estimated $10.8 billion--by a small margin. Because of the strong weekend, we are reporting a Top 13 List, as the business spread around a much wider number of films than most other times of the year. Another new release -- Paramount's "Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away" --managed only a 15th place finish ($2.4 million on »

26 December 2012 1:58 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Cirque du Soleil 3D Movie

24 December 2012 | CineMovie | See recent CineMovie news »

This holiday season, James Cameron dips his feet into the world of Cirque du Soleil from a 3D perspective with an all-new family movie, Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away. Watch the high-flying preview.

Directed by Shrek and Chronicle of Narnia director Andrew Adamson, executive producer James Cameron brings the same 3D technology used for Avatar to the big top to shoot the acrobatics of Cirque du Soleil. Cirque du Soleil shows are remarkable in person, but the 3D perspective should place viewers in the middle of the high-flying action.

In Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away, opening December 21st, a young couple who is separated, must journey through the astonishing and dreamlike worlds of Cirque du Soleil to find each other, as audiences experience the immersive 3D technology that will allow them to leap, soar, swim, and dance with the performers.

Weekend Report: 'Hobbit' Plummets, Holds Off Slew of Newcomers

23 December 2012 11:42 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Five new nationwide releases hit theaters this pre-Christmas weekend, though none came close to taking first place from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Even though it did hold on to the top spot, though, The Hobbit's performance was underwhelming. The Peter Jackson-directed Lord of the Rings prequel plummeted 57 percent to an estimated $36.7 million for a new total of $149.9 million. That 10-day gross is noticeably lower than that of The Return of the King ($190.8 million) and The Two Towers ($168.1 million), which is disappointing when considering ticket price inflation and 3D/IMAX premiums.That steep 57 percent drop also suggests The Hobbit is going to be more front-loaded than most movies at this time of year. I Am Legend had an identical decline on the same Dec. 21-23 weekend in 2007, and if The Hobbit continues to perform similarly it will wind up with just $280 million at the domestic box office (lower than »

Box Office Report: 'Hobbit' Fends Off 'Jack Reacher' and Army of Newcomers

23 December 2012 11:40 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Winners Of The Week: The little guys. And by that we mean Bilbo and his dwarf pals, plus Tom Cruise and Paul Rudd. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey fell an expected 57 percent in its second weekend and still easily defeated an army of holiday weekend newcomers with an estimated haul of $36.7 million, good for a 10-day total of $149.9 million. Debuting in a distant second place was Cruise's action thriller Jack Reacher, opening with an estimated $15.6 million. Rudd, star of Judd Apatow's comedy This Is 40, saw his movie premiere »

Box office update: 'The Hobbit' plummets to $10.2M on Friday, but easily leads 'Jack Reacher' and 'This is 40'

22 December 2012 10:55 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Sure, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey set a December record last weekend when it opened with $84.5 million, but after eight days in theaters, it’s now clear that the Lord of the Rings prequel is running well behind the final Lotr film, The Return of the King, which earned $377.8 in 2003 — without 3D and IMAX surcharges.

The Hobbit dropped by a huge 73 percent from its first Friday to $10.2 million yesterday, which puts it on pace for a $33 million weekend. That would give The Hobbit a running total of about $147 million by Sunday, its tenth day of release. The Return of the King »

Friday Box-Office: 'Hobbit' #1 Over 'Jack Reacher' and '40'; 'Zero Dark Thirty' is Hot

22 December 2012 9:00 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The only question with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was to ask just how much it would drop after its December opening weekend number of $84.6 million. What's a satisfactory drop with a film that front-loaded? 50%? 55%? After Friday it looks like we might be looking at something of a 62% drop as it brought in $10.2 million to kick off the weekend, onward to something like $32 million once all is said and done. You could look at last weekend's number and note that about $13 million came from midnight screenings and take that out of consideration, at which point we're looking at a 55% drop, but aren't we now just massaging the numbers to make them look better? The box-office story for The Hobbit, however, will be told over the coming weeks. A big drop was to be expected, so now it needs to hold on. We'll see how it does. New in theaters we »

Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away 'Meet Erica' and 'Making Worlds Away' Featurettes

21 December 2012 11:03 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Paramount Pictures has debuted two behind-the-scenes featurettes for Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away, the studio's 3D spectacle from director Andrew Adamson and producer James Cameron. The first video showcases Erica Linz, a longtime Cirque performer who plays Mia in the movie, as we go through her daily warm-up routine and see just how limber these artists really are. In the second featurette, we hear from Andrew Adamson and James Cameron about how they brought this stage show to the big screen, along with Erica Linz describing the narrative drive that takes us from the stage to a whole new world.

Film Review: ‘Cirque du Soleil: World’s Away’ is Visually Arresting Infomercial

21 December 2012 2:16 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Cirque du Soleil, which began with two street performers in Quebec in 1984, has grown into a multi-million dollar enterprise with shows on every continent and seven simultaneous extravaganzas in Las Vegas. The Vegas shows make up the storyline for “Cirque du Soleil: World’s Away.”

Rating: 3.5/5.0

The style of Cirque – that of an evolution in artsy, acrobatic big top performance – is an acquired taste, and fans of the concept will probably love the 3D film maneuverings of the various Las Vegas shows. But there is also a redundancy in that style, and because the narrative is spare, it does tend to feel like a circus parade infomercial of “visit exciting Las Vegas, and see these shows live!” It’s best to go in with an open mind and heart towards the Cirque zeitgeist, otherwise the piece just blends together, distinctively visual but a bit empty in the creative variation department. »

New to Theatres This Weekend: Jack Reacher, This is 40, The Guilt Trip

21 December 2012 6:36 AM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

With the holidays just around the corner, it's time to prepare for a major influx of movies hitting multiplexes everywhere. This weekend it's a battle between Jack Reacher starring Tom Cruise, Disney's Monsters, Inc. 3D re-release and a pair of comedies: Judd Apatow's This is 40 and The Guilt Trip starring Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand. Tom Cruise is still expected to bring it home for Paramount, especially after the success of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol last year... but hey, you never know. We've also got a flood of awards contenders in limited release including tsunami flick The Impossible, Michael Haneke's Amour, and Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty, which unfortunately isn't going wide until January. What will you be watching this weekend? What's on your must-see list before the end of 2012? Jack Reacher This is 40 The Guilt Trip Monsters, Inc. 3D Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away »

Box Office Predictions: Cruise, Apatow, Streisand, Mike And Sulley Are No Match For The Hobbit

20 December 2012 9:30 PM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Here we go; the heavy hitters are starting to move in. Leading up to Christmas at the box office we have five new wide releases – “Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away,” which is unlikely to crack the top ten, “The Guilt Trip,” “Jack Reacher,” “Monsters, Inc. 3D” and “This Is 40.” While all four do have the potential to post a decent opening intake, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” will maintain that top spot with ease, posting a solid a $40 million for its second weekend out. “Jack Reacher” should open similar to “Valkyrie” with about $21 million to start while a slightly higher theater count could be just what  [ Read More ]

Forecast: Eight Nationwide Releases Crowd Theaters This Christmas

20 December 2012 4:06 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Afraid of opening any of their end-of-year titles ahead of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the major studios instead decided to pack the long Christmas weekend with eight nationwide releases. In comparison, the last time Christmas fell on a Tuesday there were only five new entries. While the abundance of new material does mean there's plenty for audiences to choose from, it also means that at least a few of these movies are going to get seriously lost in the pack. Coming off its $84.6 million opening weekend, it's a foregone conclusion that The Hobbit will once again lead the box office, though it could yield the top spot on Christmas Day to Django Unchained or Les Miserables. It's important to remember that around the holidays, movies have very strong multiples and often end up with five to seven times as much as their opening weekend gross, and therefore lower-than-normal grosses »

Box-Office Oracle: Can 'The Hobbit' Repeat as Champion Against Five New Releases?

20 December 2012 11:19 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Current Streak: 1 Straight Weekend #1 Predicted Correctly Threat Level to Streak Being Broken: I'd put it at an even 20 percent. Reason: There's some chance Jack Reacher or This is 40 hit their absolute max potential and The Hobbit slides more than predicted. But again, that's a lot of variables breaking just right to spring the upset. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey cleaned up last weekend, though lost in the "best December weekend ever!!" conversation was the fact that it opened lower than the last two Lord of the Rings films (adjusted for inflation). Is the franchise on the wane? None of the Lotr films had 3D or 48fps, though that's probably only an eight percent bump. Still, if you are looking for a bright side, you could note that the film currently stands at $250 million worldwide, and the budget for all three was a reported $450 million. Thus, using our standard 2.5 multiplier, »

Weekend Box-Office Results: 'The Hobbit' Breaks December Record Despite Saturday Stumble

16 December 2012 7:54 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

After breaking the record for the best opening day in December with $37.5 million, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was expected to bring in a final three-day tally of somewhere in the high $90 million range. Unfortunately, a 25% dip on Saturday lowered that total to $84.8 million, which was still enough to break I Am Legend's five-year record of $77 million. It was also a number close enough to our Box-Office Oracle's $88 million prediction to make Laremy happy this Sunday, now that he's back on track and in the winner's column, finally predicting the #1 film correctly after a few stumbles as of late. As far as reader predictions go, Hobbit predictions ranged from $90-100+ million as confidence was certainly high. One commenter even suggested readers were "high" to even go any lower than $100 million, writing, "You guys are high if you think this opens to less than $100m." Hmmm, so what's that mean for the eventual result? »

Dubai Festival Day Two: Disappointing 3-D 'Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away,' Must-Sees 'Me and You' and 'Here and There'

13 December 2012 10:08 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

After an unsuitably lavish breakfast, I catch a Mall of the Emirates-bound shuttle by the skin of my teeth and scuttle through the Mall  --which looks just like a mall, only bigger, to paraphrase the well-known joke of what the unimpressed woman said to the flasher – arriving at the theater screening “Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away” in 3-D, just before it starts. I’m underwhelmed.  After Werner Herzog’s amazing 3-D “Cave of Forgotten Dreams,” exploring the 20,000-year-old paintings in the Chauvet caves of southern France, and Wim Wenders’ glorious 3-D “Pina,” featuring the dances of Pina Bausch, it seemed that 3-D had claimed its place as a valid art form.  The presence of James Cameron as an executive producer of “Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away,” also seemed to indicate seriousness.   The film consists of acts from various Cirque productions, some of which I’ve seen in the »

Django Unchained Earns an R-Rating in Today's Batch of MPAA Ratings

12 December 2012 9:14 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

If you've been reading any of the reviews that went online at midnight last night for Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained you already know it's one bloody affair, which is reflected in the R-rating it earned today. I'll have my review either this afternoon or tomorrow, but trust when I say I'll be repeating the sentiment. In addition to the Django rating, today's batch includes PG ratings for Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away 3D and the Gkids animated feature From Up On Poppy Hill directed by Goro Miyazaki. You can click on any of the titles mentioned above for more information, otherwise, here are the latest MPAA ratings from Bulletin #2252. Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away 3D Rated PG For some dramatic images and mild sensuality. Release Date: December 21, 2012 Django Unchained Rated R For strong graphic violence throughout, a vicious fight, language and some nudity. Release Date: December 25, 2012 From Up On »

“Cinemageddon 2012″ Raises The Bar For Retrospective Movie Videos

12 December 2012 4:02 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With 2013 rapidly approaching, it seems to be an apt time to look back over what has been a pretty memorable year for cinema. Everybody is beginning to pick out their personal favourites from 2012 and various sites, blogs and publications are starting to release their yearly best-of lists as well. However, over the past few years, one of the most enjoyable ways which has emerged to pay homage to the year’s cinematic offerings has been the retrospective video. Last week an early contender was released in the form of the ’2012 Movie Trailer Mash-up’, which you can view below.

 

If you’re still itching for more, today we have a new video which will certainly take some beating in the highly competitive end of year retrospective movie montage stakes. Coming courtesy of Christopher Sherwood, ‘Cinemageddon 2012′ is a wonderfully edited mash-up video taking in a wide range of movies from across the cinematic spectrum. »
