Top 10 Box Office Takeaways: Why ‘Finding Dory’ Sequel Drowned ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’

12 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Like the rest of the summer, it’s a mixed bag.

The good news: this weekend’s top two films, one opener and one holdover, grossed nearly $115 million. That’s better than the top two last year (holdovers “Jurassic World” and “Inside Out”).

The bad news: while “Finding Dory” is a huge success, “Independence Day: Resurgence” is a dud that will likely fall like a rock from its underwhelming opening.

Buddy comedy “Central Intelligence” enjoyed a strong second weekend, and low-budget horror flick “The Shallows” scored a better-than-expected opening, buoyed by rave reviews. But Stx’s risky opening strategy failed for Gary Ross’s historic epic “Free State of Jones,” starring Matthew McConaughey. Another national release in under 800 theaters bombed. “The Neon Demon” and its sub-$1 million haul is covered in Arthouse Audit. (This week’s box office preview is here; last weekend’s Top 10 Box Office Takeaways is here. »

Matthew McConaughey Says He’s He’s Talked To Nic Pizzolatto About Playing Rust Cohle On ‘True Detective’ Again

23 June 2016 6:20 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The once-unstoppable McConaissance has taken a few blows recently. After years in the rom-com wilderness, Matthew McConaughey had a run of terrific movies in the early part of this decade, with “Bernie,” “Killer Joe,” “Mud,” “Magic Mike” and “The Wolf Of Wall Street” all putting the star firmly back on the A-list, culminating in HBO […]

Embrace of the Serpent (Ciro Guerra)

With its focus on the effects of exploration by white men on foreign lands, Ciro Guerra’s Oscar-nominated Embrace of the Serpent will inevitably be compared to Werner Herzog’s stories of savage nature, and while Guerra is investigating some of Herzog’s most well trodden themes, the chaos of man exists in the background, while the unspoiled sit front and center here. Embrace of the Serpent centers on two explorers, separated by decades in time, »

X-Men: Apocalypse crosses $500 million at the worldwide box office

19 June 2016 12:24 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may not have set the domestic box office alight, with just $146.1 million to date, but thanks to strong international performance X-Men: Apocalypse has now crossed the $500 million mark worldwide, becoming only the third X-Men movie to do so.

The Bryan Singer-directed sequel pushed its cumulative gross to $510.1 million this weekend, with 72% of that figure coming from the international markets. However, it remains some distance behind franchise leader Deadpool, which has earned $780.5 million this year, along with Singer’s previous offering X-Men: Days of Future Past, which grossed $747.9 million back in 2014.

Michael Shannon Performs Pixies’ ‘Here Comes Your Man’ On Spike’s ‘Lip Sync Battle’—Watch

15 June 2016 10:26 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Character actor Michael Shannon is best known for his intense, visceral performances, often playing troubled, disturbed characters who exist on society’s margins. But like most contemporary actors, Shannon also has a soft, silly side that shows itself infrequently, like his appearance in the stoner holiday comedy “The Night Before,” his violent cameo in David Wain’s “They Came Together,” and his recent turn as Elvis in “Elvis and Nixon.” However, if for whatever reason you wanted to see Shannon lip sync on television, you will now have your chance. On Thursday’s episode of Spike TV’s “Lip Sync Battle,” Shannon will perform The Pixies’s 1989 song “Here Comes Your Man” off of their seminal album “Doolittle.” He will be facing off against “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” creator and star Rachel Bloom. Watch a teaser for the performance above.

Shannon has been acting on stage and screen since 1991 after getting his start in Chicago theatre. He originated the role of Peter Evans in Tracy Letts’ acclaimed 1996 play “Bug,” which was later adapted into a 2006 film. He first came to attention for his role in “8 Mile,” playing the boyfriend of Eminem’s mother. He was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his performance in Sam Mendes’ “Revolutionary Road,” co-starring opposite Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. He gained further acclaim for his performances in the HBO series “Boardwalk Empire,” Jeff Nichols’ “Take Shelter” and “Mud,” “Premium Rush,” and most recently in “99 Homes” and “Midnight Special.”

Lip Sync Battle” airs Thursday night at 10pm Eastern on Spike TV.

So X-Men: Apocalypse hasn’t lit the world on fire. Sitting in the awkward place between commercially and critically beloved (Captain America: Civil War) and commercially and critically disappointing (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Apocalypse was lost in the superhero shuffle, being neither good nor great. ‘X-Meh’, as Slash Film’s review so succinctly put it.

But no fear, Captain Hindsight is here! Oli reckons he knows how the overstuffed, underdeveloped plot and characters of X-Men: Apocalypse could have been better served: split the film in two, a la the final Hunger Games and Harry Potter movies…

International screenings save X-Men: Apocalypse at the box office as it crosses $400 million worldwide

6 June 2016 4:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Among a sea of mediocre reviews [read ours here, here and here], Bryan Singer’s mutant movie X-Men: Apocalypse has not been performing too well in its domestic release. However its international screenings are really helping push the movie further up the success chart.

Now in its second week, X-Men: Apocalypse dropped 66% to $22 million, losing the top spot to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. It now boasts a domestic total of $116 million, with a projected overall total of $160 million – which is what X-Men did back in 2000 and where X-Men: Days of Future Past was in just ten days. Two weeks into its release, and it still isn’t in the domestic top 40 of the highest grossing superhero movies, currently behind Green Lantern and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.

Thankfully for 20th Century Fox, the international screenings have really helped. It earned an estimated $84 million worldwide over the weekend, $59 million of which »

Bryan Singer would like to see a Mystique solo movie, with or without Jennifer Lawrence

3 June 2016 3:11 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an appearance on the Empire Film Podcast, X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer has suggested that he feels the character of Mystique is ready for her own solo movie, even if Jennifer Lawrence opts against renewing her contract with 20th Century Fox.

“I think she’s right for [a standalone film], whether it’s Jennifer or not,” said Singer (via Screen Rant). “She has this different view of the world: Xavier can get into Cerebro and look at the world but he’d rather just teach classes and see the beauty of mutants and humans co-existing in his mansion in Westchester. Along comes Raven with a reality check on the state of the world. It opens up a lot of avenues.”

Bryan Singer to take a break from the X-Men franchise

1 June 2016 7:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the release of X-Men: Apocalypse, director Bryan Singer has taken his tally of X-Men movies up to four (or five, if you include his producing duties on X-Men: First Class), and it seems he’s now ready for a break from the mutant superhero franchise.

“I recently met Danny Boyle — he and I have known of each other for many years but never met,” Singer tells the La Times. “He was prepping Steve Jobs at the time and I was doing this and he said, ‘Are you going to be doing X-Men movies forever?’ And I didn’t actually say no. The reality is, even though I’m very desperate to jump to something completely different, I’ve spent so many years in this universe and I love this cast and the characters so much, I just don’t see myself abandoning them forever.

X-Men: Apocalypse enjoys $80 million domestic opening weekend as Alice Through the Looking Glass bombs

31 May 2016 5:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

X-Men: Apocalypse debuted in the States this past Friday, with the latest instalment of Fox’s mutant superhero franchise enjoying an $80 million domestic opening over the four-day Memorial Day weekend, with $65.3 million of that coming from the Friday-Sunday period.

“We’re very happy with this result as we introduce new characters in the X-Men universe,” states Fox domestic distribution chief Chris Aronson. “And for us to be at this number globally already means we’re in good shape.”

X-Men: Apocalypse opened lower than Bryan Singer’s last X-Men offering X-Men: Days of Future Past, which grossed $110 million in its first four days, while February’s Deadpool set a franchise high with a three-day opening weekend of $132.4 million.

Bryan Singer rules out a director’s cut of X-Men: Apocalypse, talks deleted scenes

27 May 2016 1:33 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With X-Men: Apocalypse opening in the States today, director Bryan Singer has been chatting to Fandango about the movie, during which he confirmed that unlike X-Men: Days of Future Past, there will be not additional director’s cut or extended version of his latest foray into the world of the X-Men.

“There will be nothing like the Rogue Cut or anything like that”, Singer told Fandango. “I’m not a big fan of director’s cuts or extended editions, I never have been. In the case of Apocalypse, I removed what would be considered a conventional amount from the movie to protect what we call the collective experience of the feature theatrically. How it feels pace wise and movement wise.”

Posterized: Tye Sheridan

27 May 2016 9:32 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

They grow up so fast *sniffle*. Tye Sheridan, the child actor revelation from Terence Malick's The Tree of Life (quite a debut) and Mud is already 19 years old and in major demand. What accounts for his mutant super power of aging rapidly is that Tree of Life actually began shooting when Tye was just 11. Malick takes forever in post production, don'cha know. Male stars don't tend to really come into their A list own until their late 20s or early 30s. DiCaprio is the grand exception to the rule but usually the ones that break out in their late teens or early 20s more commonly have career trajectories, like, oh, Chris O'Donnell. That's partially because the juicy roles for men tend to be the ones that require a 30 or 40something actor.  So it's anyone's guess as to whether or not Sheridan can build on his rather solid first five years in the movies. »

Olivia Munn wants Psylocke to join Deadpool in X-Force movie

27 May 2016 8:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Promoting the release of X-Men: Apocalypse in an interview with USA Today, actress Olivia Munn has expressed her hope that she’ll get to reprise the role of Psylocke alongside Ryan Reynolds’ Merc with a Mouth in 20th Century Fox’s planned X-Men spinoff X-Force.

“That would be a really cool thing to do,” said Munn. “What [Reynolds] did with Deadpool was genius and I’m so excited for him. It would definitely be cool to see Deadpool and some of the other X-Men characters gather for an X-Force movie. I think that’s what the whole world is coming to — everybody unites together, right? It’s never just one character anymore. We all just become one movie.”

Fox has been developing an X-Force movie for several years now, with Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2) originally attached to write the script [check out some early concept art here]. However, it looks like the project is being revamped post-Deadpool, »
