Social Media Buzz: Kevin Hart’s ‘Think Like a Man Too’ Set for Top Spot

20 June 2014 3:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Does digital data offer indicators that can be used to monitor marketing effectiveness and predict box office success even before awareness turns into intent? We analyzed this weekend’s new movies across Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Google (the methodology behind the numbers is laid out in the appendix below) over the seven days leading up to their release, when marketing campaigns should be at their peak.

Think Like A Man Too

“22 Jump Street” took top spot last weekend and it looks like comedy sequel “Think Like a Man Too” will repeat the feat this time out. “Think” has a huge fan base from the first movie, a great cast, and a star in Kevin Hart who is on a box office roll. “Jump Street” might take the edge off the weekend total, but expect “Think Like a Man Too” to open over $35 million.

Kevin Hart has already been box office No. »

Clint Eastwood: Cowboy Led ‘Jersey Boys’ Down a New Trail

10 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In 1962, the same year that a quartet of working-class New Jersey youths called the Four Seasons shot to the top of the pop charts with the irresistible doo-wop single “Sherry,” a solo artist from the West Coast made a less auspicious chart appearance with an earnest cowboy ballad inspired by his character on a popular TV Western. Entitled “Rowdy,” the song featured its gravelly voiced performer lamenting life on the open range, set to a gentle, galloping tempo. That singer was Clint Eastwood.

Surely, few listening to the radio back then would have imagined that, 50-odd years later, the Four Seasons’ pint-sized frontman, Frankie Valli, would still be selling out arenas with his vibrating falsetto. Fewer still would have wagered that Eastwood, then in his fourth season as Rowdy Yates on CBS’ “Rawhide,” would not only go on to become one of Hollywood’s most iconic leading men, but one of its most lauded director-producers, »

The Summer Box Office Challenge Week 4: Can Godzilla Stand Up to Adam Sandler and the X-Men?

19 May 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Welcome to week four of our 2014 Summer Box-Office Challenge! Think of it as a summer-long contest for movie-lovers — you’ll make predictions and guesses as to which summer movies will rule the box-office each week, we award points and at the end of the contest the three top point-earners will each win a Blu-ray/DVD prize pack! First place will win ten (10) Blu-ray/DVD titles released throughout the coming summer, second place wins five (5) and third place wins two (2). We’ll have bonus questions each week as well to help bolster your point totals and keep you in the running. The box office actuals from this past weekend unsurprisingly put Godzilla at #1, but his arrival hasn’t altered our own #1 and #2 as Husain and AKFilmfan retain their top spots. The remaining three positions have been shaken up a bit though by some newcomers. Godzilla took in $93.19 million this weekend while Million Dollar Arm failed to beat Trouble With the Curve »

Scott Eastwood, the son of legendary filmmaker/actor Clint Eastwood, has landed his first major starring role in Fox 2000's Nicholas Sparks adaptation The Longest Ride.

1 May 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though Clint Eastwood is best known for gritty roles in Dirty Harry, Unforgiven and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, there have been times where he hunkers down for some romance like The Bridges of Madison County. Now his son is following in the latter footsteps as Deadline reports Scott Eastwood (Texas Chainsaw 3D, Trouble with the Curve) will star in The Longest Ride, an adaptation of the 2013 novel by Nicholas Sparks that is set up at Fox 2000 and already slated for release next spring on April 3rd, 2015. And fitting right in line with all of Sparks' melodramatic romances, there's a love story, but also tragedy. Here's the official synopsis explaining the two different stories happening simultaneously: Ira Levinson is in trouble. Ninety-one years old and stranded and injured after a car crash, he struggles to retain consciousness until a blurry image materializes beside him: his beloved wife Ruth, »

Clint Eastwood’s ‘Jersey Boys’ Trailer: Four Guys Under a Streetlamp

18 April 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The iconic Clint Eastwood turns 84 years old this year, and while he has largely retired as an actor – last seen in front of the camera in 2012′s Trouble with the Curve, the feature debut of his longtime first assistant director Robert Lorenz – as a director he has shown no signs of slowing down.

In the decade since the Best Picture Oscar-winning Million Dollar Baby, Eastwood’s diverse (and sometimes uneven) output included two great World War II films (Flags of our Fathers and Letters From Iwo Jima), a massive blockbuster hit with Gran Torino (over $269 million worldwide) and Invictus, which starred Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela.

The director’s first film since 2011′s biopic J. Edgar is an adaptation of the hit Broadway musical Jersey Boys, which follows the story of the legendary pop group Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.  Watch the first ...

Judge Tosses ‘Trouble With the Curve’ Suit

25 February 2014 7:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A federal judge tossed out a screenwriter’s claim that Warner Bros.’ “Trouble with the Curve” was ripped off from his idea, and she refused to even rule on the merits of other claims that the studio and others engaged in a “conspiracy” to cover up the project’s lineage.

Ryan Brooks claimed that his idea for a project called “Omaha” was lifted for “Trouble with the Curve,” and that the credited screenwriter for “Curve” was in fact an “impostor” to cover up its true writer.

But U.S. District Judge Dale S. Fischer wrote that there were not substantial similarities to the plot and sequence of events, and that areas where they were similar, like a father-daughter baseball story, were more general concepts not protected by copyright. She had indicated on Monday that she was inclined to rule in favor of Warner Bros.’ motion for summary judgment.

Richie’s got his sights on taking down a politician (Jeremy Renner, The Bourne Legacy) and pulling in the mafia boss (Robert De Niro, Everybody’s Fine) for an even bigger score.

Screenwriter Claims Documents in ‘Trouble With the Curve’ Suit Are ‘Fraudulent’

27 January 2014 5:16 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A screenwriter who contends his idea was stolen for Warner Bros.’ “Trouble with the Curve” is now claiming that the studio is relying on “fraudulent documents” in presenting evidence that the movie was hatched well before he came up with his own project.

Attorneys for Ryan A. Brooks filed a brief on Monday that contends that forensic experts have determined that floppy disks on which the pic’s credited screenwriter, Randy Brown, stored his scripts were “manipulated” to “present inaccurate information about date of creation.”

Warner Bros. and other defendants in the suit are seeking a summary judgment to dismiss the case, in which Brooks claims that there was a “conspiracy” to cover up the lineage of the pic’s screenplay. He contends that his idea for a project called “Omaha” was lifted for “Trouble with the Curve,” which was released in 2012 and grossed about $49 million at the worldwide box office. »
