Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt Top Highest-Grossing Actors List

6 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The actors and actresses who generate the most money for Hollywood aren’t always the ones with the highest salaries.

2. Chris Pratt, with his lead roles in “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “The Lego Movie,” grossed $1.2 billion globally.

3. Scarlett Johansson grossed $1.18 billion worldwide with her roles in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Lucy” and “Under the Skin.”

6 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jennifer Lawrence has come a long way since her breakout role in “Winter’s Bone,” which pulled in only $2 million.

The Oscar-winning actress is poised to become 2014’s highest grosser after starring in two of the year’s most successful franchise films, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1″ and “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” which combined to gross $1.4 billion at the global box office, according to Forbes.

2014 Analysis: Home Entertainment Steps Up to Keep Up With Connected Consumer

10 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If 2014 was the year of the truly connected consumer, then it should come as no surprise that the year also saw stepped-up efforts by the studios to connect with that consumer.

The proliferation of delivery as well as viewing options reached a fever pitch, and Hollywood was right there, ready and willing to serve up content wherever, whenever and however it could.

Accordingly, while disc sales slipped precipitously yet again, the mood at the home entertainment divisions was far from somber. Consumer spending on home entertainment in all its incarnations – physical and digital sell-through, streaming, VOD – has remained remarkably resilient, and with the proliferation of screens and delivery methods some studio executives see plenty of unexploited opportunity.

“Consumers clearly still want to own high-quality, repeatable entertainment,” said Dennis Maguire, president of Paramount Media Distribution. “This was made abundantly clear earlier in the year by the phenomenal sales of ‘Frozen’ and »

15 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

One of the biggest entertainment stories of 2014 in China was the stock market listing of e-commerce giant Alibaba, whose founder and executive chairman Jack Ma described his firm as "the world's biggest entertainment company."

21 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Exodus: Gods and Kings, 2014

Directed by Ridley Scott

Starring Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, John Turturro, Aaron Paul, Ben Mendelsohn, Maria Valverde, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley

Synopsis:

The defiant leader Moses rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses, setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.

Imagine you have a stone. It’s a nice stone, it’s well formed and it does its job as a stone rather well. But what if you wanted that stone to be something it wasn’t? Say you wanted that stone to be a rock. What if you wanted it to be a rock so badly that you keep telling your friends and peers that it is, in fact, a rock. You tell them that it’s the biggest rock they’ve ever laid eyes on and it’s one of the best rocks ever. »

The Oscar Hopefuls: Why ‘Wild’ Deserves Recognition for Editing More Than Acting

24 December 2014 11:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Film acting is a difficult craft to judge. Actually, most film crafts are difficult to judge because they’re not usually very transparent. When you go to see live theater acting, you are certain you’re watching the extent of an actor’s performance. You’re directly witnessing their abilities. When you’re watching a film, however, you’re seeing the compilation of selected takes and a chopped-up performance. It’s more likely that a film director can get a good performance from an actor by perfecting every brief segment given in each brief shot and then constructing one out of those building blocks. Typically I look at a film’s editing when judging its acting merits. Choppier films can seem an overcompensation for weaker acting talent, while long shots are more akin to theater and require strong actors to hold those uninterrupted scenes. A perfect example of the latter this year is Birdman, which »

Watch: Honest Trailer for 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Reboot

24 December 2014 7:52 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Picking on the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot is just an easy target, no matter how good the film is/was. Paramount, however, isn't too concerned with any of the jabs the ScreenJunkies crew throws its way in this new honest trailer as they sent out a press release yesterday announcing among all films theatrically released in 2014 that earned more than $100 million at the box office, the new DVD and Blu-ray release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has the highest ratio of disc sales to theatrical ticket sales for its first week of release. Now that's a rather specific group of films, but it does include the likes of Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Transformers: Age of Extinction and so on. I think Christmas for the kiddies has a little something to do with that, but doesn't that speak to whom this film is forc So, »

Mark Wahlberg Says Six Billion Dollar Man Is A "Superhero" Movie

23 December 2014 6:45 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

  You could've referred to Mark Wahlberg ("The Gambler") as the billion dollar man based on the box office performance of his last film Transformers: Age of Extinction. Apparently, that wasn't good enough for Marky Mark as we'll be referring to him as The Six Billion Dollar Man in the near future. Last month, is was reported that Wahlberg would team up with his Lone Survivor director Peter Berg ("Hancock") for a film adaptation of the 1970s television series The Six Million Dollar Man, aka The Bionic Man, which starred Lee Majors ("The Fall Guy"). Wahlberg briefly spoke of the project with Collider: Any plans for you to be a superhero in the future? Wahlberg:  We’re talking about doing Six Billion Dollar Man, which is very much a superhero, but I don’t have to wear any kind of spandex cape.  So that would be cool.  Howard Gordon is writing »

Why Hollywood Isn’t Freaking Over Bummer 2014 Box Office

23 December 2014 5:56 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

With the holiday season soft, it’s clear the 2014 domestic box office is going to wind up down from last year by nearly 5 percent. So why aren’t we hearing more groans and gnashing of teeth from Hollywood executives?

It’s because despite the downturn, the majority of the studios made money on their movies. Fox, Disney, Paramount, Universal, Warner Bros. and Sony should all — to varying degrees — wind up in the black on their film slates.

The fact that 2015 has a shot to be the biggest on record is brightening Hollywood’s mood, too. Among the heavyweight films set »

11 Fascinating Facts About the 2014 Box Office

23 December 2014 5:49 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The basic story line of the 2014 domestic box office is that it’s going to finish about five percent below last year’s record-breaking $10.9 billion total, but here’s a look between the lines:

>> The top grossing movie in 2014 was Marvel and Disney’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” with $333 million. Last year, three films topped $400 million: “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” ($424 million), “Iron Man 3” ($409 million) and “Frozen” ($401 million). That’s a big reason this year is down.

>> “Transformers: The Age of Extinction” was the only movie to top $1 billion at the global box office and the only film to open at more than $100 million. »

79 Oscar-Eligible Songs: An Opinionated Guide to an Awesome Year for Movie Music

23 December 2014 12:42 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When it comes to cultural impact, mega-sales and drama, this year’s Best Original Song category at the Academy Awards is going to have an awfully difficult time competing with last year’s category.

The 2013 winner, you might remember, was “Let It Go,” the anthem from “Frozen” that became a hit around the world and spawned a zillion amateur YouTube renditions.

Transformers: Age of Extinction is the highest-grossing movie of 2014

23 December 2014 3:15 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Transformers: Age of Extinction is the biggest box office hit of 2014.

Michael Bay's fourth instalment in the robot action saga earned more than $1 billion from cinemas worldwide this year, easily securing it the top spot ahead of Marvel blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy.

Age of Extinction's earnings of $245,439,076 in the Us makes it the least successful domestic performer in the franchise, however it's huge foreign gross of $841,965,423 helped power it to the top of the charts.

Filming in Hong Kong, the movie was one of the few Hollywood blockbusters to benefit from a release in the fast-expanding Chinese market. It's $300 million gross made it the highest-earning film in the country's history, overtaking 2009's Avatar.

Despite its success in 2014, Age of Extinction is still only the second-biggest earner in the Transformers series behind Dark of the Moon, which earned $1,123,794,079 worldwide in 2011.

We said: "Three years after Rise of the Planet of the Apes stunned many with its quality, Dawn builds on these foundations with an emotionally powerful and visually stunning tale documenting the conflicts between humans and apes trying to survive in a world ravaged by a killer virus. A thought-provoking blockbuster, it serves as the perfect antidote to Transformers: Age of Extinction." [Brj]

The 59 Best Movie Performances of 2014

22 December 2014 12:03 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It wasn’t a good year for the movie business — overall U.S. box office dipped by more than 5% in 2014 compared to 2013. Many of the summer blockbusters, from “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” to “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” felt like pale imitations; Philip Seymour Hoffman and Robin Williams left us too soon; and just in time for the holidays, Hollywood witnessed a hack that brought Sony Pictures to its knees, forcing the studio to yank “The Interview,” because of an assassination subplot that offended North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

If there’s a silver lining to all this atrocious news, it’s that the movies of 2014 will endure thanks to quality work from actors in indies such as “Foxcatcher,” “Boyhood,” “Nightcrawler,” “The Theory of Everything” and “Wild,” as well as studio hits “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Volume 1.” A few weeks ago, »
