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

28 May 2015 11:17 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

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.

Click here for the ongoing ranking of 2015’s films for female representation.

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.
