Blake Lively Says Husband Ryan Reynolds Gets to Play 'A**holes' in Movies While She Has to Be 'Likable'

18 October 2017 2:12 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Blake Lively knows her gender can sometimes limit the roles she can play.

The All I See Is You star sat down for Vanity Fair's "The Limelight" podcast, where she illustrated the inherent sexism in Hollywood casting by pointing out the parts her husband can do vs. the "likability" she and other women have to maintain.

“I mean, my husband plays a**holes [but], you go, ‘He’s so charming.’ Because he is likable . . . or you look at Harrison Ford as Han Solo and he’s like, ‘Get over here, sweetheart,’ and you just sort of [think], ‘Whoo, it’s so exciting and romantic and titillating.’ It’s because he’s charming and he’s loving and he’s not some sexist a**hole," the 30-year-old actress reasoned. "But, you don’t see that and think, ‘Oh, that guy’s not likable.’"

"But you would read on a page and you just know, 'Oh, it’s a man »

WB and New Line's 'It' Propels September 2017 to Record Heights

11 October 2017 10:33 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent Box Office Mojo news »

September 2017 saw record returns with calendar grosses topping $695 million, falling just shy of becoming the first September to ever total $700 million at the domestic box office. Leading the way was Warner Bros. and New Line's massive hit It, which delivered record numbers of its own and accounted for over 40% of the month's total gross. September is also the first month since April to show an improvement over the same month in 2016, with September grosses finishing 18.3% higher than 2016. From a yearly stand point, 2017 was pacing 6.3% behind 2016 at the end of August and September grosses helped turn things around somewhat with 2017 pacing 4.6% behind 2016's record year by the end of the month. However, with October already pacing 20.8% behind last year (as of October 9) it's looking like September's gains will be lost throughout the current month, putting additional pressure on final two months of the year to turn the tide.Overall, September 2017 saw calendar grosses reach $696.2 million, »

Kingsman 2 Beats It at the Box Office with $39M

24 September 2017 11:19 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As expected, after two weekends of box office dominance, New Line Cinema's It remake was finally dethroned. While it came in far lower than most projections, 20th Century Fox's Kingsman: The Golden Circle took the top spot at the box office with $39 million. Also as expected, Kingsman 2 easily beat its fellow newcomers The Lego Ninjago Movie and Friend Request, although they both came in far lower than most projections.

Box Office Mojo reports that Kingsman 2 opened in 4,003 theaters for a solid $9,743 per-screen average. While some had projected it to open in the $50 million range, the Kingsman sequel still managed to out-gross its predecessor, which opened with $36.2 million en route to a $128.2 million domestic debut and $414.3 million worldwide from an $81 million budget. The sequel was produced under a $104 million budget, but with its $61.2 million foreign debut, for a worldwide tally of $100.2 million, it's already very close to breaking even. »

'Kingsman' and 'LEGO Ninjago' Ready to Add to September's Record Pace

21 September 2017 1:20 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent Box Office Mojo news »

September 2017 is currently pacing 15.6% ahead of 2016 with a calendar gross of $467.3 million, putting the month on a record pace, $48 million ahead of where 2015 was at the same time period before delivering $626.4 million, the largest September calendar gross ever. Almost half of September's total at this point is thanks to Warner Bros. and New Line's It, which is looking to do strong numbers again this weekend, but will fall from its #1 perch after two straight weeks on top. Debuting in wide release this weekend is Fox's Kingsman: The Golden Circle and it should have enough juice to take the weekend top spot while Warner Animation Group's The LEGO Ninjago Movie is looking to finish in the runner-up position. Entertainment Studios' is going social with the R-rated horror Friend Request debuting in just over 2,500 theaters and likely to finish in the top five (albeit with minimal returns) while Roadside Attractions is »

Disappointing August 2017 Closed Out the Worst Summer Movie Season in Over 10 Years

20 September 2017 8:18 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent Box Office Mojo news »

As the September box office attempts to get 2017 back on track*the month is currently up 14% compared to last year*the chapter ends on what was a dismal August 2017 at the domestic box office. August was the fourth month in a row to show a decline compared to the previous year, all of which contributed to the worst Summer movie season in over ten years, in which the total summer gross failed to top $4 billion for the first time since 2006. August 2017 wrapped up as the worst August in twenty years with calendar grosses delivering a combined $657.7 million from 225 movies, 35.5% behind last year's gross and failing to top $700 million for the first time since 2000. Thanks to the continued performance of Annabelle: Creation, which just topped $100 million domestically yesterday, the month did deliver a $100+ million earner, a feat that looked as if it might not happen not too long ago.

Can Kingsman 2 or Ninjago Take Down It at the Box Office?

19 September 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While the It had no trouble repeating atop the box office for a second straight frame in a row last weekend, it doesn't seem that it will be going for a three-peat, with three new movies vying for the crown in wide release, 20th Century Fox's action-packed sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Warner Bros.' Lego Movie spin-off The Lego Ninjago Movie and Entertainment Studios' horror-thriller Friend Request. While it very well could be a close race, we're predicting that Ninjago will come out on top with $55.6 million, while Kingsman 2 will follow just behind with $52.4 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that both Kingsman 2 and Ninjago will be released in roughly 3,900 theaters, with Friend Request opening in roughly 3,000 theaters. All of those movies will still fall short of the 4,138 theaters that the blockbuster It remake was playing in last weekend, but after a record-breaking opening weekend, and a normal second-weekend drop, »

'It' Remains #1 with $60M Second Weekend, Floating to September Record

17 September 2017 9:22 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent Box Office Mojo news »

After just eight days in release, WB and New Line's It became the highest grossing September release of all-time, two days later it added another $40 million to that total for an impressive $60 million second weekend and nearly $220 million in just ten days. The horror film's performance vastly overshadowed the weekend's two new wide releases that saw Lionsgate and CBS Films's American Assassin deliver respectable results in second place while Paramount's release of Darren Aronofsky's mother! suffered greatly, finishing in third and receiving a disastrous "F" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. With an estimated $60 million this weekend, WB and New Line's It brought its domestic cume to $218.7 million after just ten days in release. As already mentioned, that makes it the largest September release ever, topping 1986's Crocodile Dundee ($174.8m). That number, of course, is not adjusted for inflation. Adjusted for inflation, however, It still finishes within the top »

'It' Set for $50M+ Second Weekend, Smothering 'Mother!' and 'American Assassin' Debuts

14 September 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent Box Office Mojo news »

Friday Am Update: Lionsgate's release of CBS Films' American Assassin brought in $915,000 from Thursday night previews in 2,400 locations beginning at 7Pm. This compares favorably to John Wick, which kicked off its run to a $14.4 million opening with $870k from Thursday screenings. Paramount's mother! delivered $700k from Thursday previews beginning at 7Pm in ~2,000 locations, which is behind the $855k for Crimson Peak, which we used as one of our comps in our weekend preview below. It is, however, an improvement on the $520k Nightcrawler brought in before it opened with $10.4 million back in October 2014. We'll take a closer look at things tomorrow morning once Friday estimates come in. For now you can check out our weekend preview below.Weekend Preview: Following a record breaking opening last weekend, WB and New Line's It will reign supreme once again this weekend, pushing the horror film's domestic gross near record heights after just ten days of release. »

Can American Assassin End It's Reign of Terror at the Box Office?

12 September 2017 10:56 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

New Line Cinema's It remake gave the sagging box office a much-needed jolt after the worst summer season in 11 years, pulling in a massive $123.4 million, which even came in $6 million higher than the original estimate of $117.1 million. The tally easily set a new record for the highest September opening weekend in history, along with the highest debut for any horror movie in history, and provided even more proof that audiences are hungry for edgy R-rated fare. This weekend, Pennywise and The Losers Club will go up against three new movies opening in wide release, Lionsgate's action-packed adaptation American Assassin, Paramount's bizarre drama mother! and Open Road Films' thriller All I See Is You. None of these movies are expected to give It a serious run for the box office crown, with the movie easily expected to repeat atop the box office with $66.2 million.

It Brings Box Office Back to Life with Record-Breaking $117.1M

10 September 2017 1:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Heading into the weekend, most box office analysts predicted that New Line Cinema's highly-anticipated Stephen King adaptation It would have no trouble taking the top spot at the box office, but it ended up coming in much higher than anticipated. The movie ended up setting a new September box office record, earning $117.1 million, nearly three times higher than the previous record-holder, Hotel Transylvania 2, which took in $48.5 million back in 2015. This adaptation also continues to prove that there is in fact an audience for R-rated fare.

Box Office Mojo reports that the It movie debuted in 4,103 theaters, pulling in an impressive $28,552 per-screen average. The movie has already made more than three times its $35 million budget, and it's faring well overseas also with $62 million for a worldwide total of $179.1 million. This adaptation continues the trend of R-rated fare overperforming at the box office, although it didn't quite reach the opening »

'It' Devours Competition with Record-Breaking $117 Million Opening

10 September 2017 8:49 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent Box Office Mojo news »

With a monster, $117 million opening weekend Warner Bros. and New Line's It has delivered a record-breaking opening, breathing a little life back into the slumping domestic box office. The film has claimed the largest September opening, largest fall opening, the largest opening for an R-rated horror film, not to mention the largest opening weekend for a horror film of any MPAA rating, and tops Open Road's new release Home Again in second place by nearly $110 million. Overall, the film accounted for more than 75% of the combined gross for the weekend's top twelve, and we've only just begun. With an estimated $117 million, WB and New Line's It, an adaptation of the acclaimed Stephen King novel, claimed the weekend's #1 spot with ease, besting Open Road's new release of Home Again in second place by nearly $110 million, the fifth largest gap between first and second place all-time. The film also dusted the previous »

Adaptation of Stephen King's 'It' Targets Fall Opening Weekend Record

5 September 2017 1:19 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent Box Office Mojo news »

With the worst August in twenty years and worst summer in over ten years now behind us, this weekend will turn up the heat as Fall 2017 gets underway. Debuting in over 4,100 theaters, Warner Bros. and New Line's adaptation of Stephen King's It is looking to break more than just a few records while Open Road's Home Again starring Reese Witherspoon will quietly target a much smaller audience as a counter-programming option. Before it even hits theaters, WB and New Line's It has already broken records as its 4,103 theaters is the largest opening for an R-rated film ever, topping the 4,071 theaters Logan opened in earlier this year. Obviously, that also makes it the largest opening for an R-rated horror movie, improving on the 3,761 theaters Alien: Covenant debuted in earlier this year when it opened with $36 million. This, of course, begs the question So how much is it going to open with? »

Can It Kickstart Fall and Save the Failing Box Office?

5 September 2017 11:15 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Labor Day holiday weekend is typically not the strongest at the box office, signifying the end of the summer movie season, and in turn, lower box office receipts. This year, the Labor Day grosses were the lowest in 17 years bringing to an end the worst summer movie season in 11 years, and while early September isn't typically home to blockbuster opening weekends, that certainly seems to be the case this year with New Line's highly-anticipated It remake, which looks to shake things up in a big way. We're projecting that It will take in $65.7 million, which would be more than enough to break a few box office records.

If these projections are true, it will be the highest-grossing September debut of all time, easily beating the animated sequel Hotel Transylvania 2, which took in $48.4 million in its September 2015 debut. It will also break the 16-year record set by Hannibal as »

Hitman's Bodyguard Wins Worst Labor Day Weekend Box Office in 17 Years

4 September 2017 3:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Most analysts were predicting that the Labor Day weekend would be one of the worst holiday weekends at the box office in decades. And it seems those predictions were actually too generous. With no new movies opening in wide release, The Hitman's Bodyguard took full advantage, winning for a third weekend in a row with a four-day holiday weekend tally of $13.3 million. While the top 10 remained virtually unchanged, with the three-day tallies showing that six movies in the top 10 actually posted increases from the previous weekend, it still wasn't enough for this weekend to be the worst Labor Day weekend in 17 years.

Box Office Mojo reports that the top 12 movies grossed just $51.5 million, which was the lowest tally since 2000, when the top 12 took in $47 million. We also reported yesterday that the box office estimates represented an 18-year low, with analysts predicting that the four-day weekend totals for every movie in theaters won't even break $100 million, »

Labor Day Box Office Estimates Hit 18-Year Low

3 September 2017 2:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We reported that last week marked the worst box office weekend in 15 years, with The Hitman's Bodyguard repeating atop the box office with a paltry $10 million in its second weekend, and with no new movies arriving in wide release, the Labor Day holiday weekend was expected to be even worse. Surprisingly, the top 10 remained virtually unchanged, with most of the movies showing small increases from last weekend or very small decreases, but it still will likely set a record for futility, marking the worst Labor Day weekend since 1999. This weekend is said to be the first time that all of the movies released aren't even enough to cross $100 million combined.

The Wrap reports that industry estimates for the four-day holiday weekend will likely put all of the movies combined between $90 million and $100 million. This tally marks the worst Labor Day weekend since 1999, when The Sixth Sense took the top spot »
