Sony’s 2016 version of The Magnificent Seven rode into theaters across North America this weekend where it quickly rose to the top of the box office, leaving the Warner animated feature Storks in its dust.

With $35 Million 'Magnificent Seven' Tops Another Lackluster September Weekend

20 hours ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

It wasn't quite the weekend we forecasted on Thursday afternoon as Sony's The Magnificent Seven remake and WB's animated Storks both fell short of Mojo's lofty expectations. The weekend overall didn't look much better as the top twelve failed to combine for $100 million for the fifth weekend in a row and the weekend itself was down 25% compared to the same weekend last year. At the top, Sony and MGM's The Magnificent Seven turned in an estimated $35 million opening from 3,674 theaters, just a few thousand behind the opening of Sully two weeks ago and just ahead of Denzel Washington's The Equalizer from 2014, which was also directed by Antoine Fuqua. It's tough to say exactly where this one will go from here as Westerns aren't your typical blockbuster for the modern era and films such as The Lone Ranger and Django Unchained began their runs on Wednesday and Tuesday respectively.

‘The Magnificent Seven’ Tops Weekend Box Office With $35 Million

22 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

MGM and Columbia’s “The Magnificent Seven” topped the box office this weekend with an estimated $35 million from 3,674 locations. The Western, featuring an all-star cast led by Chris Pratt and Denzel Washington, has a 64 percent Rotten Tomatoes score and also an A- CinemaScore (from audiences surveyed on opening night). It topped the debuts of other recent movies in the genre: “Django Unchained” opened to $30 million, “True Grit” debuted to $24 million and “The Lone Ranger” lassoed $29 million when it launched in theaters — the last widely-released PG-13 film in the category before “The Magnificent Seven.” Also Read: 'The Magnificent Seven' Characters Ranked, »

Box Office: ‘Magnificent Seven’ Hits Bullseye With $35 Million Debut

22 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Denzel Washington hit the bullseye again. “The Magnificent Seven,” the Oscar-winner’s first Western, topped the box office this weekend, picking up a solid $35 million.

Hollywood’s star system has shriveled in the past decade, with few new talents emerging to reanimate the ranks and stand alongside Leo and Julia and Johnny and George and Brad. Some of those stars have dimmed as the years tick by, but Washington’s still shines brightly.

“He’s one of the last great action heroes,” said Jeff Bock, an analyst with Exhibitor Relations. “He’s so believable in those roles and he has a ferocity that works cinematically.”

Indeed, Washington hasn’t had a film open to less than $20 million since 2007’s “The Great Debaters,” a remarkable display of consistency. He’ll be back on screens at the end of the year in “Fences,” an adaptation of August Wilson’s play, that he »

Featuring an all-star cast led by a witty and smoldering Chris Pratt and a stoic Denzel Washington, MGM and Columbia’s “The Magnificent Seven” is set to top the box office this weekend with an estimated $35 million. The Western, which has a 64 percent Rotten Tomatoes score, made $12.7 million on Friday from 3,674 theaters. It has an A- CinemaScore from audiences surveyed on opening night. It’s on track to top the debuts of other recent movies in the genre: “Django Unchained” opened to $30 million, “True Grit” debuted to $24 million and “The Lone Ranger” lassoed $29 million when it launched in theaters — the last. »

Box Office: ‘Magnificent Seven’ Rounds Up $12.7 Million on Friday

24 September 2016 7:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

MGM and Columbia Pictures’ “The Magnificent Seven” is leading the weekend box office charge after lassoing $12.7 million on Friday at 3,674 locations. The film, from director Antoine Fuqua, is zeroing in on a $35 million opening.

The Western, which carries a $90 million price tag, features an ensemble cast including Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio and Byung-Hun Lee. The film is co-financed by LStar Capital and Village Roadshow Pictures, and debuted on the Toronto Film Festival’s opening night. It carries an A- CinemaScore.

The last time Fuqua and Washington teamed up for “The Equalizer,” it opened with $34.1 million. Compared to other recent Westerns, “The Magnificent Seven” earned more than Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight” which opened over Christmas weekend to $16.2 million. “Django Unchained” had a healthy $30.1 million opening in 2012.

Storks,” from Warner Bros. Animation, takes second this weekend with $5.7 million Friday, and is flying toward a $20 million opening at 3,922 theaters. »

Why ‘The Magnificent Seven’ Isn’t Quite The Western We Need in the Age of Trump

23 September 2016 11:41 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No matter how many times we pronounce it dead, the western remains gratifyingly unwilling to turn up its boots. Just last year saw several worthy additions to its ranks, including “The Hateful Eight,” “The Revenant,” “Bone Tomahawk,” and “Slow West.” Not bad for a deceased art form.

Still, that’s a far cry from the 1950s, which saw more westerns released than all other movie genres combined. One theory for the western’s decline is as American urbanization expanded, frontier settings seemed increasingly alien. Cattle gave way to Cadillacs, Winchesters to Winnebagos. There were 26 western series on TV in 1959, the year that the U.S. made Hawaii its 50th and final state. As the space race turned our attentions to the skies, the frontier started to gather tumbleweeds.

However, westerns aren’t about time or place so much as they are about the process of building society in a wild and unruly land. »

5 Fun, Action-Packed Westerns To See Before The Magnificent Seven

22 September 2016 12:28 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Gotta love a good old-fashioned Western. It’s a genre that’s been an American staple for decades. The image of the lone gunslinger is one that’s inspired countless novels, films, comics, and TV shows — and it’s one that’s bound to continue to do so for countless years. Though while as kids the genre may have been synonymous with fun adventure, the reality is that the majority of these flicks are slow, meditative character studies.

That’s all well and good, but I’m gonna chuck every one of those movies out the window today. You won’t find me talking about The Assassination of Jesse James, Once Upon A Time In The West, or The Unforgiven here. Granted, I acknowledge the quality of those films, but today, I wanted to highlight a handful of flicks that may be more in line with what we’ll be »

“The Magnificent Seven” remake looks to bring back the Western

22 September 2016 11:51 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Outside of Quentin Tarantino, it seems like no one is really attempting to do Westerns anymore. This week, one does hit in the remake of The Magnificent Seven. This film, the latest take on the material, seeks to not just follow in those footsteps, but in Tarantino’s as well, echoing Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight in the process. Aside from remakes like 3:10 to Yuma, you have to look far and wide to find other Westerns these days, with the last memorable one perhaps being The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Come Friday though, Antoine Fuqua seeks to give you all another one to love. This remake, which is not only a remake of The Magnificent Seven film of the same name, but also Seven Samurai, is an action Western. Here, when a town is being terrorized by a land thief (Peter Sarsgaard), they »

'Magnificent Seven' and 'Storks' Look to Turn Around Box Office Fortunes

22 September 2016 9:44 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

On the heels of the worst weekend of the year so far (based on cumulative gross for all titles) this weekend should perk things up a bit as MGM and Sony's The Magnificent Seven remake and WB's animated feature Storks are looking at strong openings. Projecting just how well this weekend's newcomers will perform, however, is something that's raising a few eyebrows in the wake of recent weeks and last week's box office bloodbath where not one, but two of the week's three new wide releases came in well below expectations, and all three failed to open over $10 million. Industry expectations for Magnificent Seven and Storks have both films opening around $30+ million. For Storks this number appears to be about right on target, but for Magnificent Seven it seems grossly conservative. Sony is projecting a $30-32 million weekend, but if it doesn't top $40 million it would be a bit of a surprise. »

The Weekend Warrior 9/23/16: The Magnificent Seven, Storks

21 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out. 

This Past Weekend:

 Yikes. What a terrible weekend we just had, not only for the new movies released but also for the Weekend Warrior’s predictions. Clint Eastwood and Tom HanksSully won its second weekend in a row with just under $22 million, but as far as the new movies, neither Lionsgate’s Blair Witch nor Universal’s Bridget Jones’s Baby did very well, putting the last nail in the coffin (hopefully) for sequels/remakes trying to play upon nostalgia that just isn’t there. (Good luck to the Rings movie opening next month!) Blair Witch ended up with $9.6 million to take second place and both Bridget Jones’s Baby and Oliver Stone’s Snowden ended up with around $8 million, so »

‘The Magnificent Seven,’ ‘Storks’ Swoop in to Save the Box Office

20 September 2016 1:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Magnificent Seven” and “Storks” are here to save the day. Last weekend, audiences rejected a flurry of sequels to tired franchises such as “Blair Witch” and “Bridget Jones’s Baby,” but help has arrived in the form of Denzel Washington and a band of lovable, baby-delivering birds.

The Magnificent Seven” should debut to roughly $35 million, easily topping the domestic box office, while “Storks” is on pace to launch to $32 million, according to pre-release tracking. Both films should best last weekend’s winner, “Sully,” with the drama, about the “Miracle on the Hudson” plane landing, slipping to third place with roughly $13 million.

The Magnificent Seven” reunites Washington with Antoine Fuqua, the director of “The Equalizer” and “Training Day,” two of the actor’s bigger hits. This one adds “Jurassic World” star Chris Pratt to the mix, and should have enough firepower to keep the pair’s hot streak alive. The »

Box Office: ‘Magnificent Seven’ and ‘Storks’ Set to Unseat ‘Sully’

Featuring an all-star cast led by a witty and smoldering Chris Pratt and a stoic Denzel Washington, MGM and Columbia’s “The Magnificent Seven” is set to top the box office this weekend. Trackers have the movie surpassing $40 million on its opening, but distributor Sony is eyeing $30 million or just higher. The high end of estimates on the PG-13 Western could be overreaching, according to insiders who spoke with TheWrap. Recent movies in the genre serve as a litmus test: “Django Unchained” opened to $30 million, “True Grit” debuted to $24 million and “The Lone Ranger” lassoed $29 million when it »

Blood Simple (Joel and Ethan Coen)

For as accomplished as Joel and Ethan Coen’s debut Blood Simple comes across as to a viewer, like any director, they can’t help but recognize their flaws.

Relativity Saddles Up ‘High Noon’ Remake, But With A Twist

While we’ve seen westerns make a strong comeback over the past few years, thanks to high profile pictures by Quentin Tarantino (“The Hateful Eight,” “Django Unchained“) and a string of indie movies, (“Bone Tomahawk,” the upcoming “In A Valley Of Violence“) it’s really the Denzel Washington powered “The Magnificent Seven” remake that will be the biggest determination whether or not audiences are ready for the genre to return on a large scale.

Jackie Earle Haley to play villain in Robert Rodriguez’s Alita: Battle Angel

15 September 2016 11:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like Jackie Earle Haley is the latest actor to join the cast of Robert Rodriguez’s Alita: Battle Angel, as The Hollywood Reporter claims that he has signed on to play a “monstrous cyborg” villain. The report also states that a fair amount of CG and greenscreen will be required to bring the Preacher actor’s role to life.

As of now, the rest of the film’s cast includes Django Unchained and The Legend of Tarzan actor Christoph Waltz, who came on board the project a few weeks ago, and Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials actress Rosa Salazar, who will portray the title character, Alita.

Alita: Battle Angel is based on the similarly titled manga series Battle Angel Alita, which is set in the 26th century and centers around an amnesiac cyborg (Salazar) discovered by a cybernetics doctor in a junkyard. After remembering that she is skilled »

Directors just seem to open up much more when speaking to one of their own kind. Brian De Palma, the subject of this fine documentary, »
