Hong Kong — Visual effects group Digital Domain does not look much healthier than it did a year ago, when it was given a back door share listing in Hong Kong.
The VFX businesses were largely responsible for pushing the listed company, previously called Sun Innovation, and now renamed Digital Domain Holdings, into the red.
Ddh announced a loss of Hk$58.2 million (Us$7.51 million) for the six months to June 30, on revenues of Hk$429 million (Us$55.4 million).
A stock market filing revealed that while the group’s scrap metal and property businesses edged ahead, the Digital Domain VFX businesses incurred losses of Hk$41.2 million (Us$5.32 million) on revenues of Hk$253 million (Us$32.6 million).
Finance costs relating to the acquisition of Digital Domain in July 2013 pulled the group down by a further Hk$20 million (Us$2.58 million).
The VFX unit figures included amortization of intangible assets worth Hk$30.5 million (Us$3.94 million) and a »

All in all, 2014 was a pretty great year for comic book movies. Bryan Singer and 20th Century Fox knocked it out of the park with X-Men: Days of Future Past, while Marvel had two tremendous (and well-received) hits on their hands: Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy (which just became the highest-grossing film of the year at the United States box office).
Even The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which was met with quite a bit of vitriol and a bad critical reception when it hit theaters in May, managed to take in over $750 million worldwide. That makes the fate of Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For even harder to bear, as it was dead upon arrival last week and has become one of the biggest flops of the year.
In ten days, the film hasn’t even crossed »

Having already become the highest grossing instalment in the franchise, Fox’s simian sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has now crossed $600 million at the global box office, with an opening weekend of $47 million in China helping to push the film to an impressive $611 million to date. Apes is the sixth film to surpass $600 million this year after Transformers: Age of Extinction, Maleficent, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is directed by Matt Reeves (Let Me In) and sees Rise of the Planet of the Apes star Andy Serkis returning as Caesar alongside Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises), Keri Russell (Mission: Impossible III), Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In), Enrique Murciano (Black Hawk Down), Kirk Acevedo (The Thin Red Line) and »

Remember last summer, when movie industry insiders as lofty as Steven Spielberg and George Lucas were predicting that it would take only a couple of megaflops to bring Hollywood's entire blockbuster-driven business model crashing down? Indeed, there were a number of such flops last summer, and yet there were enough big hits offsetting those failures to wind up with a record-breaking summer, worth $4.85 billion.
This summer? Also a number of megaflops, but not as many successes to balance them out. As a result, the summer winds to a close with a total of $3.77 billion, down a full 22.2 percent from last summer. It's the lowest-grossing summer since 2005; adjusting for inflation, it's the worst since 1992. The numbers are so bad, they're likely to make Hollywood executives wonder: are Spielberg and Lucas's dire predictions finally coming true?
For perplexed box office observers, here's a question-and-answer guide to what happened this summer, and what »

What a summer at the movies! The galaxy got guarded. The future days went past, like some sort of extinct age. The planet of the apes stopped rising and started dawning. Our stars had a fault. And also: Lucy!
Hollywood had a rough season at the box office in summer 2014, with overall box-office receipts falling precipitously from last year’s flurry of mega-grossers. Going into this weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy, the highest-grossing film at the summer box-office, has earned about $256 million–which would have made it the fifth highest-grossing movie of summer 2013.

Right around the time his massive mutant sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past was due to reach theaters, director Bryan Singer was slapped with a sexual assault lawsuit. The timing of the suit raised questions, and some of those still linger, even as the legal system granted a request to dismiss the case against Singer earlier this week. U.S. district judge Susan Oki Mollway granted a motion filed by Bryan Singer.s accuser, Michael Egan, for voluntary dismissal in U.S. District Court in Hawaii on Wednesday, according to The Wrap. This was the latest step in a series of setbacks for Egan, who lost his attorney in May and also dropped similar suits against former entertainment executives. However, The Wrap notes that Egan.s suit was dismissed "without prejudice," meaning that he has the freedom to refile against Singer at a later date if he so chooses . an »
We cover a lot of ground in today's podcast and yet it still fell just short of the two hour mark and we really tried. That said, today we hold the Fall Box Office Draft, we review Frank and Starred Up and revisit The Trip to Italy as Laremy caught it this week and had a few things to say. We also play our regular assortment of games including the longest "Buy or Sell" edition ever, plus clear out a backlog of "Watch This or Watch That".

As August comes to a close, so does another summer movie season. While 2014 may not have been as exciting as we anticipate next year or the year after will be, it did not disappoint with hits like Godzilla, Guardians Of The Galaxy, and X-men: Days Of Future Past. But, if you go back and look, there have been some hugely impactful and memorable movies released in summers gone by. Here is our list of the greatest summer movies of the 20th Century.

In case you hadn't heard, Hollywood would like everyone to forget the summer of 2014 ever happened. Sure, there were some notable exceptions such as "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Lucy," "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and "22 Jump Street," but for the most part it was a summer of disappointment. The laundry list of films that did not live up to their expectations is cringeworthy this season. "Amazing Spider-Man 2" (the better sequel that wasn't), "Edge of Tomorrow" (the great thriller that couldn't overcome a weak opening), "Tammy" (the end of Melissa McCarthy's $100 million run), "A Million Ways to Die in the West" (Seth McFarlane is not a leading man), "Sex Tape" (bad in and out of bed), "Million Dollar Arm" (should have thrown in September), "Deliver Us From Evil" (not enough of "The Conjuring") and "The Giver" (needed bigger teen stars), among others, just didn't cut it.

That sound you hear, you know, the one like a bunch of air escaping from a bag? That's the sound of the summer movie season ending and the doldrums of September arriving. Here we are about to enter the month that's typically home to the most easily ignored and forgotten new releases. The only thing to do is look forward to the fall and look back on the summer. So let's do the latter! Summer 2014 may be over, but the movies are going to stick around. So let's do what all reasonable and rational movie fans do when it comes to talking about blockbuster movies: hand out imaginary awards.

Most people know that Transformers: Age of Extinction is the current box office champ of 2014, but do you know which film is second? It's Disney's Maleficent! Yup. This plucky film has grossed more at the worldwide box office than 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past, Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Yet, I don't hear many people talking about that very fact. Seems like kind of a big deal. Guess that is a another feather in the cap for female-driven films.

Directors Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano reteamed with their Intouchables breakout star Omar Sy for the upcoming Samba. Their highly-anticipated follow-up to the $426M-grossing 2012 sensation (no pressure, guys) will have its world premiere in Toronto as a Gala presentation. Sy plays the eponymous character who migrated to France from Senegal 10 years prior. Ever since, he’s been plugging away at various low-paying jobs and trying to secure proper work papers. Charlotte Gainsbourg plays Alice, a burnt-out exec who’s trying to get her life back on track. Fate ultimately draws them together on a new path to happiness. Tahar Rahim also stars. Sy has been straddling Hollywood and French projects since Intouchables. He featured in X-Men: Days Of Future Past and appeared in Michel Gondry’s Mood Indigo. His next studio picture will be Jurassic World. Gaumont is releasing Samba in France on October 15. There is no U.S. distributor yet, »

Michael Egan, the man who accused X-Men director Bryan Singer of sexually abusing him when he was a teenager, has now voluntarily dismissed his lawsuit against Singer. Singer says he's looking forward to "moving on".
U.S. district court judge Susan Oki Mollway granted Michael Egan's motion yesterday, for a voluntary dismissal of charges in U.S. District Court in Hawaii on Wednesday. The case had been making headlinges since it was filed in April of this year. The controversy caused Singer to avoid any press or interviews regarding his latest film, X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Egan's dismissal of the case against Singer comes following several legal setbacks. Last May, Egan's attorney, Jeff Herman, filed a motion to withdraw as Egan's counsel. Earlier this year, Egan dropped similar lawsuits against ex-Disney executive David Neuman, ex-television executive Garth Ancier and a Broadway producer named Gary Goddard.
