Ant-Man Hits $400 Million At The Worldwide Box Office

20 September 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ant-Man hasn’t been the surprise success that Guardians of the Galaxy was last August when it went on to become 2014’s highest grossing superhero movie, but Marvel’s final Phase 2 release has still had a pretty strong outing at the worldwide box office. After debuting in Japan at #1 with a solid $1.7 million (which is a good start for Western movie), Ant-Man has now sailed past the $400 million mark.

Believe it or not, that $1.7 million opening is bigger than both Captain America: The Winter Solider and Thor: The Dark World, and takes the international box office for Ant-Man up to $223.8 million with $117.6 million from North America for a current total of $401.4 million. The top international markets were the UK ($25.3 million), Korea ($18.9 million), and Mexico ($15.1 million).

Jolie's 'By the Sea' Gets Hard R, New Scrat Short Film and More in Today's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

11 August 2015 4:08 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

We saw the first trailer just last week and today the MPAA delivers the rating for Angelina Jolie's new movie in which she not only directs, but stars in opposite her husband, Brad Pitt, and it seems By the Sea won't only be touting the names of the two high profile celebs, but a strong R-rating along with it for "strong sexuality, nudity, and language." That'll heat up the cinema, though this looks like a bit of a tough drama than some sort of Fifty Shades sex romp. Speaking of... next up is yet another new Nicholas Sparks adaptation, this one is called The Choice starring Alexandra Daddario, Teresa Palmer, Maggie Grace, Tom Welling, Benjamin Walker and even Tom Wilkinson. PG-13 rating for this one... naturally. Oh, yeah, and guess where it takes place... If you said a "small coastal town", pat yourself on the back. A couple animated »

Idris Elba Makes History as First Male ‘Maxim’ Cover (Photo)

4 August 2015 4:03 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Actor Idris Elba graces the cover of Maxim’s September issue, the first solo-male cover in the history of the men’s publication. Wearing a dark coat alongside the caption, “Man Up,” Elba’s cover differs significantly from Maxim’s usual covers, which usually features scantily clad women. “We’ve never in U.S. Maxim history had a man on the cover solo,” new editor-in-chief Kate Lanphear told Racked. “This is the very first time, and there was no one else in the world more badass than Idris.” Also Read: Netflix Sets Date for Idris Elba Film 'Beasts of No Nation »

Idris Elba Is the First Man Ever to Cover Maxim—See the Historic Snapshot!

4 August 2015 1:57 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Maxim, you made a good choice. The mag, which is famous for portraying scantily clad women on the cover, has decided to dip their toes in the male pool and opted to feature a man all by himself for the September issue, marking the first solo-male cover in the brand's history—and they chose Idris Elba. The hunky actor smolders on the cover wearing a dark coat with the words "Man Up" appropriately placed beside him. "We've never in Us Maxim history had a man on the cover solo," new editor-in-chief Kate Lanphear told Racked. "This is the very first time, and there was no one else in the world more badass than Idris," she said, explaining that actor Idris Elba was »

Chernin Group, At&T’s Otter Media Venture Invests In Supergravity Pictures

23 July 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Supergravity Pictures is having a big VidCon weekend. The day before the debut of the feature film studio’s second movie, The Chosen, it has announced a strategic investment from Otter Media, the joint venture launched by The Chernin Group and At&T.

Otter Media, which also owns a controlling stake in top multi-channel YouTube network Fullscreen, will support Supergravity as the studio looks to expand its team and secure additional film deals. The investment will include a co-production partnership, through which we can assume Supergravity will work closely with the Fullscreen Films division, which has produced movies like #O2LForever.

Supergravity’s current lineup includes Man Up, which arrived on Vimeo On Demand in May, and The Chosen, which stars digital media star Kian Lawley. It’s upcoming projects include a documentary produced in partnership with Ray William Johnson.

“This investment gives us the capital to execute our vision »

'Ant-Man' Alternate Ending, Opening and Deleted Scenes Revealed

22 July 2015 12:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We get it. Ant-Man changed a lot from it's first draft to its very last, with director Edgar Wright leaving the project after nearly a decade of pre-production work and Peyton Reed coming into replace him. The Marvel adventure was a hit, topping the box office during it's debut last weekend. Though, it is the studio's second lowest opener, earning just slightly more than 2008's The Incredible Hulk. Because it has gone through so many changes leading up to its release, fans have wondered what got tweaked throughout the course of the film's long prep time. Peyton Reed has offered some insight into that, revealing what the alternate opening and ending contained. We also have a strange new TV spot that showcases a deleted scene.

It's hard to imagine the film doing any better or worse at the box office with Edgar Wright attached. While it would have been a decidedly different film, »

Melissa McCarthy comedy Spy tops the UK box office

10 June 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 5th June to Sunday 7th June 2015…

Melissa McCarthy’s latest collaboration with director Paul Feig, the action comedy Spy, has topped the UK box office chart in its opening weekend, with the film earning £2,557,824, including £198k in previews. That’s pretty much on par with 2013’s The Heat, which debuted with £2.5 million, but less than the £3.44 million opening for Bridesmaids back in 2001.

Elsewhere in the chart, horror prequel Insidious: Chapter 3 pulled in £1,440,299 to take third place (matching the opening of the first movie but half that of Chapter 2’s £2.88 million debut), while Secret Cinema’s screenings of The Empire Strikes Back earned £304,115 to claim eighth, followed by Bollywood comedy-drama Dil Dhadakne Do with £212,719 in ninth.

Number one this time last year: 22 Jump Street

1. Spy, £2,557,824 weekend (New)

2. San Andreas, £1,794,747 weekend; £8,334,562 total (2 weeks)

3. Insidious: Chapter 3, £1,440,299 weekend (New)

4. Mad Max: Fury Road, »

Where Are the Women? Man Up

Hooray for a story about a woman, but boo for how retrograde it is. This is a movie about literally nothing except her romantic desperation.

Note: This is not a “review” of Man Up! It is simply an examination of how well or how poorly it represents women. (A movie that represents women well can still be a terrible film; a movie that represents women poorly can still be a great film.) Read my review of Man Up.

Henry Simmons Talks S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Captain America 2 Flashbacks, Mack vs. Coulson and Lucy Lawless' Encore

31 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This Tuesday on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (ABC, 9/8c), as “the real S.H.I.E.L.D.” makes life difficult for Coulson & Co., flashbacks will reveal to us the experience that first bonded Mack, Bobbi, Isabelle Hartley and Robert Gonzales — circa Captain America: The Winter Soldier, when the organization first was brought to its knees.

Here, Henry Simmons previews for TVLine the illuminating hour, makes a compelling argument to unseat Phil Coulson as S.H.I.E.L.D. director and teases the “return” of Lucy Lawless’ incredibly able agent.

The ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ R Rating Means No Hope of Seeing Jamie Dornan’s Dick

8 January 2015 1:18 PM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Am I the only one who’s pissed that Fifty Shades of Grey has officially been rated R? That stuff should be Nc-17 and you know it. If you remember correctly, producers said there would be two versions of the film, one rated R and one rated Nc-17, but now they’re chickening out and bringing my morale way down. You would, Universal.

E.L. James had some freaky action in her books, which is obviously why they are so wildly popular. Shamelessly, we were ready to see it all play out in theaters. In an interview earlier this year, Dornan insinuated that he wouldn’t be shooting full-frontal, and recently compared his junk to “a little bag of grapes” that he tucked away on set. But on some level, I still felt a sliver of hope that we would see something. Anything. Even a millisecond side-peak, Ben Affleck style.
