'Sniper' Adds $10 Million, Three New Releases Flop on Friday

11 hours ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

American Sniper earned more than all three new releases combined on Friday, which sets it up to easily take first place for the third weekend in a row.The Clint Eastwood war drama added an estimated $10.02 million yesterday, which is off 45 percent from the prior week. Considering how well it held last weekend, that's a surprisingly steep drop; with the Super Bowl coming up on Sunday, Sniper now seems poised to fall around 50 percent over the full three-day weekend ($30 to $32 million).Through 15 days in wide release, American Sniper has earned $227.1 million. That ranks ninth among 2014 releases; by the end of the weekend, it will move up to sixth place ahead of Transformers: Age of Extinction.In second place, found footage time travel movie Project Almanac flopped with $3.2 million. In comparison, Chronicle, The Woman in Black and Warm Bodies all opened over $8 million on the Friday ahead of the Super Bowl. »

New UK trailer and poster for Wild Card starring Jason Statham

30 January 2015 4:27 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new UK trailer and poster have arrived online for Wild Card, the latest thriller starring Jason Statham (The Expendables), and you can check them both out below…

Wild Card is a quasi-remake of 1986 thriller Heat, which was initially written by William Goldman. The original film starred Burt Reynolds and was directed by Dick Richards (who replaced Robert Altman) and was a critical and box-office flop. Goldman described the film as “One of my major disasters”.

It’s production is something of a legend, as Richards and Reynolds got into a fight that left Reynolds injured and need of an ambulance, and later director Richards suffered a fall from a camera crane. But while that film suffered, the new version sticks closer to Goldman’s original vision, rather than what the film ended up becoming.

Mark Kermode interview: critics, star ratings, Joe Cornish, PR

28 January 2015 11:42 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Kermode on modern film criticism, critics of his own work, Michael Bay, Jason Statham and male oil wrestling.

The last time we spoke to Mark Kermode, he'd just launched his book about the state of movie criticism, Hatchet Job. Since then, he's embarked on a nationwide tour with the book, and undertaken dozens of Q&As with audiences about it.

And that, as Hatchet Job continues to thrive in paperback, is where we started...

I spoke to you just as you launched Hatchet Job, and in your words, since then you've "toured the arse off it". You've done Q&As with the people who've read your book, and who you wrote it for.

So what have you learned about what audiences feel regarding film critics, and where they sit in the world?

I think the most important thing was when I started writing it, I was, as you know, »

Meet the 2015 Sundance Filmmakers #36: Irish Drama 'Glassland' is a Big Thank You to Gerard Barrett's Parents

27 January 2015 4:49 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Fresh off of the acclaimed "Pilgrim Hill," director Gerard Barrett is now at Sundance to showcase his emotionally-rigorous exploration of family, addiction and crisis. "Glassland" stars Jack Reynor ("Transformers: Age of Extinction") as the support system of a struggling family, in which his mother, Jean (Toni Collette), is struggling with alcoholism. This penetrating film, which has garnered attention for the hard-hitting performances from Raynor and Collette, may lead to bigger things for the promising Irish filmmaker. What's your film about in 140 characters or less?"Glassland" tells the story of a young taxi driver who is desperately trying to keep his family together in crisis.Now what's it Really about?The film is about a disjointed family in crisis, and is told through the viewpoint of the middle child, John (played by Jack Reynor). He is the firefighter of the family, constantly putting out fires and keeping them together. His mother is. »

The Gambler movie review: to bet, or not to bet?

22 January 2015 12:40 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

It doesn’t quite work as a package, but Wahlberg is a real pleasure to watch as he crafts a portrait of a tormented anti-hero with an apparent death wish. I’m “biast” (pro): like Mark Wahlberg

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

I think you’re the kind of guy who likes to lose.” So someone pegs Jim Bennett, child of privilege, literature professor, and dude in to an illegal Los Angeles casino run by Korean gangsters for $240,000. Which he has to repay in seven days, or else. But a perverse pleasure in losing — blackjack and roulette seem to be his entertainments of choice — is only a small part of Bennett’s intriguing, but most definitely anti-heroic, complexity. Mark Wahlberg (Transformers: Age of Extinction), as Bennett, has never been this good: he actually makes us buy that Bennett is »

The film critics who turned to filmmaking

22 January 2015 8:46 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From the Pudsey The Dog movie to Joe Cornish and Roger Ebert, what happens when critics make films themselves?

Arts critics tend to get a rough time of it in the movies. Even looking at this year's awards season hopefuls, Birdman casts a wonderfully scabrous Lindsay Duncan as a theatre critic who is determined to kill the hero's play, and Mr. Turner presents John Ruskin as a lisping, pretentious fop, a representation that has led some to take mild umbrage.

To look even further back, at Ratatouille's sneering Anton Ego, or Lady In The Water's film-savvy 'straw critic', or Theatre Of Blood's gleefully murderous tract, there's not a whole lot of love for critics in film. Any of this might give way to the preconception that critics, especially film critics, don't actually like films and that they're out of touch with both the filmmakers whose works they »

Australia Box Office Drops For Second Year in 2014

21 January 2015 2:24 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Australian theatrical box office dropped by 2.3% for the second successive year. In U.S. dollar terms the drop was a more dramatic 11%.

Total theatrical receipts from the 505 films released in 2014 was A$1.07 billion, according to date from the Motion Picture Distributors Association of Australia. In 2013 the total had been A$1.10 billion, down from the record A$1.13 billion in 2012.

Given the recent strength of the U.S. currency in comparison with most other monies, in U.S. dollar terms the 2014 Australian B.O. take fell from Us$976 million in 2013 to Us$873 million in 2014.

Without a major hit for the local industry, market share for Australian films is understood to have dropped to less than 2.4%. The Mpda did not provide figures. Top Australian film of the year was Russell Crowe’s “The Water Diviner,” which took A$5.7 million in its six days of release during the calendar year.

2014 Box Office Wrap: Five Takeaways, Who Came Out Ahead and Behind?

20 January 2015 8:49 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Our survey of the 2014 domestic box office -- 132 films that played at least one week in over 1,000 theaters -- offers clues as to why overall box office fell to a significant extent. The revenue not only dropped 5.2%, but the fall in tickets sold, the lowest since 1995, is the worst performance compared to total population in many decades. Here are five takeaways from the 2014 box office. (Also check our annual comprehensive performance overview of studio performance in 2014, and our ranking of all 132 wide domestic releases here.) 1. The rise of the international box office. One statistic stands out above all others: the continuing shift to international dominance in worldwide totals. For 2014, seven of the ten biggest hits did more than two-thirds of their business outside of the U.S. & Canada. In 2013, only three of ten did that. And the disconnect between the two zones on many titles in striking -- 2014's biggest hit, »

Box Office: Peter Jackson's The Hobbit Finale Crosses $800 Million

19 January 2015 12:01 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Hobbit: The Battle Of Five Armies added $9.8 million at the overseas box office this weekend. Its international total now stands at $558 million and its global total is $803.1 million. The second highest grossing film of 2014 still has some fight left in but won't catch Michael Bay's billion dollar monster Transformers: Age Of Extinction. I'm sure director Peter Jackson is thrilled his final installment in the Middle-earth trilogy has crossed $800 million benchmark, but it is underperforming the two previous films in the series.  2013's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug earned $960.4 million and 2012's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey grossed over a billion. For those of you interested in the domestic box office, American Sniper, which stars Bradley Cooper ("Guardians Of The Galaxy"), smoked the competition with $88 million and Blackhat, which stars Chris Hemsworth ("Avengers: Age Of Ultron"), couldn't even crack the top ten in its »

Film Feature: Global Hacking of ‘Blackhat’ is the Future of Action Movies

17 January 2015 8:19 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “Blackhat” is a hacker’s auctioneer of high-tech and low-tech genre jolts, but its construction provides a thrill of its own - that of witnessing the next era of the action movie. With “Blackhat,” director Michael Mann introduces the new standards for the everlasting genre as it continues to reflect modern anxieties, giving leading roles to two entities that Hollywood has previously treated as supporting acts, hackers and the nation of China. Incredibly on-the-moment, “Blackhat” recognizes that computer whizzes are becoming the physical heroes our connected world needs, and China is the partner that Hollywood will increasingly rely on for business, especially in selling films that look like “Blackhat.”

Mann’s film is the story of a co-investigation between the United States and China. A Hong Kong nuclear power plant and Chicago’s Mercantile Trade Exchange have been attacked, nonetheless by a no-name, no-motive menace who has hacked into their systems. »

Update on Next Installment of The Ring

16 January 2015 2:49 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It’s a fate worse than any Blockbuster late fee from back in the day: if you watch the tape, you die one week later at the hands of Samara Morgan, the black-haired ghost girl who needs no help getting out of the well she calls home. Last July, it was revealed that F. Javier Gutiérrez will direct the next Ring movie (referred to then as The Ring 3) from Paramount Pictures, and now the film’s new, official name and first cast member have been revealed.

TheWrap reports that Paramount’s upcoming Ring movie is titled Rings and will star Matilda Lutz in the lead role. A reboot of sorts due to the fact that Naomi Watts (who starred in 2002’s The Ring and 2005’s The Ring Two as Rachel Keller) will not return for this next installment, Rings will see Samara once again serving as the eerie antagonist »

Is "Transformers: Age of Extinction" the Worst Movie of 2014? See Full List of Razzie Nominations! Who Gets Redeemed?

16 January 2015 1:36 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

The Academy just announced the best in cinema of 2014 and now, here comes the Razzie saluting the worst! Michael Bay's "Transformers: Age of Extinction" receives the most nominations, all seven of them including Worst Picture and Screenplay! But somehow, Mark Wahlberg escaped the wrath of Razzie! And I thought he was horrible in the movie!

But this year, the Razzie introduces a new award. Maybe to show the softer side of Razzie! The new category is called the Redeemer Award which highlights previous Razzie regulars who redeemed themselves. My favorite is Ben Affleck who went from "Gigli" to "Argo" to "Gone Girl."

Winners of the 35th Golden Raspberry Award will be revealed on February 21st, the night before the Oscars!

Here's your complete list of Razzie nominees:

Worst Picture

"Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas"

"Left Behind"

"The Legend of Hercules"

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles"

"Transformers: Age of Extinction"

Worst Actor

Kirk Cameron, »
