SXSW Film Review: ‘Spy’

16 March 2015 4:08 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If recent misfires like “Tammy” and “Identity Thief” have proved anything, it’s that Melissa McCarthy is virtually indestructible, retaining her comic buoyancy, her tremendous likability and much of her fan base even when stuck with bargain-basement material. All of which makes it even more gratifying to see what she can do with a vehicle that’s firing on all cylinders for a change. In “Spy,” an uproarious blast of globe-trotting action-comedy delirium that doesn’t spoof the espionage-thriller genre so much as drop a series of banana peels in its path, McCarthy plays an eager-to-please desk jockey turned full-blown CIA operative who learns to wield a gun as skillfully as she does a one-liner — a dazzling transformation that represents the actress’s smartest, funniest, most versatile and fully sustained bigscreen showcase to date. Unsurprisingly, her key collaborator here is once again Paul Feig, who directed her to such show-stopping »

Grading Mojo's Holiday Forecast

11 March 2015 11:22 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

As is tradition here at Box Office Mojo, we made domestic box office predictions for holiday 2014 releases ahead of the start of the season. Now that those movies are essentially at the end of their runs, it's time to grade that forecast.As usual, there were a healthy set of very accurate predictions (Big Hero 6, Into the Woods, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb), along with a handful that were laughably inaccurate (Exodus: Gods & Kings, Horrible Bosses 2).For each title, we will list the domestic forecast, the actual gross (in most cases an estimate) and the percentage difference [(Actual-Forecast)/Forecast]. Each prediction will be assigned a grade on the following arbitrary scale: A (less than 10% difference), B (10-19.9%), C (20-29.9%), D (30-39.9%) and F (over 40%).The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1Forecast: $385 millionActual: $337 million (est.)Difference: -13%Grade: BThe previous Hunger Games movies each earned over $408 million at »

Weekend Report: Moviegoers Flee From 'Fifty Shades'

22 February 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Coming off a massive holiday weekend, Fifty Shades of Grey plummeted 74 percent in its second outing. Still, the movie easily held on the top spot this weekend with $22.3 million.Among the new releases, McFarland, USA and The Duff did solid business, while Hot Tub Time Machine 2 flopped.Fifty Shades of Grey's 74 percent drop is steeper than the second weekend declines for The Fault in our Stars, Valentine's Day, and all five Twilight movies. It's the second-biggest decline ever for a movie playing at over 3,000 locations; the worst belongs to the Friday the 13th remake, which fell 80 percent on this same weekend in 2009.Adapted from an immensely popular book and opening on Valentine's Day weekend, Fifty Shades of Grey was always going to be fairly front-loaded. Still, the movie's horrible reviews (25 percent on Rotten Tomatoes) and weak word-of-mouth ("C+" CinemaScore) surely contributed in some way.Fifty Shades has now earned $129.2 million, »

22 February 2015 10:57 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Fifty Shades of Grey held on to first place at the international box office this weekend with $68.1 million.That's off 56 percent from last weekend, which is a far better that the movie's hold in the U.S. (down 73 percent). To date, it's already earned $280.5 million, which is ahead of Sex and the City and the first Twilight ($263 million and $200 million, respectively).In the next day or two, it will pass the first Hunger Games movie ($283 million). With South Korea on the way, Fifty Shades could theoretically reach $400 million overseas.Playing in 53 markets, Kingsman: The Secret Service earned $32.8 million this weekend, which brings its total to $86.4 million. Thanks to the Chinese New Year holiday, the movie jumped 86 percent to $8.9 million in South Korea; it's already earned $17.8 million there, which puts it ahead of all Bond and Bourne movies.It opened to $3.5 million in France*a very solid result*and scored a »

Weekend Report: 'Jupiter Ascending' Crushed By Super 'SpongeBob'

8 February 2015 11:55 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Over a decade after the first SpongeBob movie hit theaters, moviegoers were more than ready for another trip to Bikini Bottom this weekend.The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water opened to a massive $55.4 million, which is one of the best debuts ever in the month of February.The other new releases weren't so hot: the Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending opened below $20 million, while Seventh Son fell short of $10 million.The Top 12 earned $136.8 million, which is roughly on par with the same weekend last year. Look for a big jump next weekend when Fifty Shades of Grey and Kingsman: The Secret Service hit theaters.The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water's $55.4 million debut is up 73 percent from the first SpongeBob's $32 million opening. It ranks fifth all-time in the month of February behind Valentine's Day ($56.3 million). It couldn't quite reach the same level as last year's The Lego Movie and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles »

Weekend Report (cont.): 'Jupiter Ascending,' 'Seventh Son' Flop

8 February 2015 11:35 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

<< Continued from "Weekend Report: 'Jupiter Ascending' Crushed by Super 'SpongeBob'"Playing at 3,181 locations, Jupiter Ascending opened in third place with a very disappointing $18.4 million this weekend. That's a fraction below the Wachowskis' Speed Racer ($18.6 million); with seven years of ticket price inflation and the addition of 3D premiums, it's likely that attendance for Jupiter was substantially lower.Jupiter Ascending's opening was also around $10 million less than recent big-budget sci-fi movies like Elysium ($29.8 million), Edge of Tomorrow ($28.8 million), After Earth ($27.5 million) and Ender's Game ($27 million), all of which were considered misses on opening weekend.The marketing for Jupiter Ascending never quite found a way to sell the convoluted story, and also struggled to hide the movie's sillier elements. It also doesn't help that the Wachowski brand is essentially worthless now: the massive amount of goodwill generated by The Matrix has faded thanks to two lukewarm sequels followed by »

Coinciding with its domestic debut, Jupiter Ascending opened in 65 international markets and earned a solid $32.5 million.The movie's biggest market was Russia, where it took first place with $4.7 million. It also took the top spot in a handful of smaller Asian markets.Otherwise, though, Jupiter's debuts were unremarkable: it opened to $2.5 million in France, $2.1 million in South Korea, and $2 million in the U.K., and wound up between $1 and $2 million in Brazil, Mexico, Germany, Italy and Spain.The big-budget sci-fi flick expands in to Australia in two weeks, and then reaches China and Japan in March.Playing in 25 markets, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water added $16.2 million this weekend. According to Paramount, that's five-and-a-half times as much as the first SpongeBob movie earned across the same group of territories.The movie opened in first place in Brazil and Spain with $4.6 million and $1.9 million, respectively.

Peter Dinklage Joins Melissa McCarthy in 'Michelle Darnell' Comedy

4 February 2015 1:54 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Even though Melissa McCarthy was just recently confirmed as one of the new Ghostbusters in director Paul Feig's all-female reboot alongside Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, she's got another comedy that will get off the ground before then. Michelle Darnell is another comedy set up at Universal Pictures with McCarthy in the lead as a character the actress created herself. In what sounds like a spiritual sequel to the forthcoming comedy Get Hard, the film is said to follow a titan of industry sent to prison after she’s convicted of insider trading. Once released, she aims to be rebranded as America's next sweetheart. However, the plan isn't so easy to pull off because not everyone she stepped on during her career is ready to forgive and forget. The film will be directed by McCarthy's husband Ben Falcone (seen in Bridesmaids, Identity Thief and Tammy), who also »

The new Ghostbusters, internet comments & ruined childhoods

1 February 2015 9:55 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Can a new film really ruin a childhood? A look at the controversy - and comments - surrounding Paul Feig's Ghostbusters reboot...

You don't need me to tell you that last week's reveal of the new cast for the Ghostbusters reboot caused 'some conversation'. Our unscientific reading of said reaction is that most people are against Paul Feig's 2016 movie, many vehemently so. Furthermore, the casting of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones as the lead quartet caused further consternation.

It would be fair to say that some news stories have been better received.

There are, without doubt, legitimate criticisms and concerns here. Notwithstanding the fact that not a frame of footage has been shot, and that very, very few people have read Katie Dippold's and Paul Feig's screenplay, there nonetheless can't help but be fan concerns.

The bulk of them centre around the »

The Huntsman Will Be Heavy On The Hemsworth, But Light On The Dwarves

28 January 2015 4:04 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At this point, watching the development of The Huntsman has become something of a sport. The sequel to 2012’s phenomenally successful Snow White And The Huntsman is now a case-study in what can be achieved when Universal has the commitment of two stars, a confirmed release date, and then just holds on tight.

When the first film opened to great fanfare and financial success, the idea of a sequel was immediately and predictably bandied about. The main cast – Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron – was on board and happy to return. Then came a wave of high profile controversy surrounding Stewart and the film’s director, Rupert Sanders – which led to both of them stepping away from the project. But, with Hemsworth and Theron still attached, a release date was set for April 22nd 2016, and attentions turned to the development of a screenplay, without Snow White in it.

Pump documentary review: it’s a gas

26 January 2015 1:45 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

You will be shocked, I am sure, to discover that Big Oil has put its profits before all else (including you). I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

So, remember how, in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, the big bad villainy was tied up in how Big Oil was bent on destroying Los Angeles’s wonderful trolley system in order to force everyone to drive automobiles? That really is basically what happened in the United States after World War II: Big Oil had to find new ways to ensure its revenue stream, and mass transit that didn’t run on oil (such as electric trolleys) got pushed out in favor of those that did (such as buses), and in favor — oh dear god yes in favor — of cars. Pump covers that nasty historical tidbit. And if you »

Melissa McCarthy's New Spy Trailer Is What You'd Expect From A McCarthy Spy Movie

13 January 2015 7:24 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

What happens when you turn Melissa McCarthy into a secret agent? Pretty much exactly what you.re envisioning in your head right now. After much talk, the first trailer for Spy, the comedienne.s new movie with her Bridesmaids and The Heat director Paul Feig, has landed online in both a family friendly green-band trailer and a not-so appropriate red-band version. We.ve already seen McCarthy in those buddy-buddy movies. She was buddies with Sandra Bullock in The Heat. She was buddies with Jason Bateman in Identity Thief. And she was kinda buddies with Susan Sarandon in Tammy. It.s at least good to see her set out on her own as a first-time undercover agent, though we can.t really say it.s all that refreshing. Spy, formerly called Susan Cooper, sees McCarthy as a CIA analyst who.s tired of blending in with everyone else. As she says »

Watch Marvel’s Ant-Man Trailer, Starring Paul Rudd & Michael Douglas

7 January 2015 8:35 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“Scott, I’ve been watching you for a while now. You’re different. Now, don’t let anyone tell you that you have nothing to offer.” Ant-Man may feature a superhero who can shrink to microscopic sizes, but that unique ability could expand Marvel’s cinematic universe in a big way. Marvel has released the first trailer for Ant-Man, featuring a lot of screen time for Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, while also teasing an impressive supporting cast.

Press Release – “Set for release in the United States on July 17, 2015, the film is directed by Peyton Reed (“Bring it On,” “The Break-Up”) and stars Paul Rudd (“I Love You Man,” “Role Models”) as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, and Michael Douglas (“Behind The Candelabra,” “Wall Street”) as his mentor Dr. Hank Pym and Evangeline Lilly (“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” “Lost”) as Hope Van Dyne, daughter of Hank Pym.

Melissa McCarthy's Michelle Darnell gets plot details and a release date

5 January 2015 11:52 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Melissa McCarthy had me laughing in Bridesmaids a few years ago, but since then comedies Identity Thief, The Heat, and Tammy have left a lot to be desired from someone often mentioned as the go-to funny lady. She entertains a lot of people though; she can hold her own at the box office and has time for a sitcom on the side too, I don’t do any of that so good for her. There is no shortage of work coming her way as Universal Pictures has set a release date for the upcoming »
