Box Office Preview: Thanksgiving Weekend Needs Help, But Only ‘Moana’ Can Come To The Rescue

22 November 2016 12:00 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last weekend was the lowest-grossing pre-Thanksgiving Top Ten since 2007, and exhibitors are again looking to Disney to lead a rebound. “Moana,” its latest in-house animated feature, will easily top three other new wide releases. If it lives up to its potential, it might do well enough to push box office to last year’s totals.

Warner Bros.’ “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” though hitting low-end expectations with a $74 million initial weekend, didn’t rise to the level of past new films from the “Hunger Games,” “Twilight” and “Harry Potter” franchises, all released on the same date. That led to a Top Ten total of $147 million over the weekend, 10 percent below 2015.

Moana” and the other films debuting Wednesday (“Allied”/Paramount, “Bad Santa 2″/Broad Green, “Rules Don’t Apply”/20th Century Fox) will have to defy history to equal or exceed last year’s three-day total of $168 million — especially »

Thanks very much for your questions. I think it's good that people throw in the odd snarky one - it makes it a bit more like real conversation! I'm sorry that I'm not Doctor Who or someone, but you know, there we are. Back to work everybody!

You’re a fellow Edinburgh University alumnus of Gordon Brown, Pippa Middleton and Julius Nyerere. Out of these three, who would you say you are most similar to and why?

Apple iTunes Hikes Prices of Studios’ 10-Movie Packs to Up to $50

13 September 2016 1:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After offering six different 10-movie bundles for a special one-day price of $9.99 on Monday, Apple’s iTunes is keeping them around for a while longer — but has raised the prices for each of the packs to between $35 and $50.

The promo, celebrating the 10th anniversary of Apple selling digital movies, drew participation from Warner Bros., Universal Studios, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Paramount Pictures and Lionsgate. Disney and 20th Century Fox were the major studios that sat out the “10 Years of iTunes Movies” deal.

Still, while they’re not the one-dollar-per-movie bargain iTunes users in the U.S. were able to score Monday, the six bundles are still cheaper than if you were to buy the ten movies separately from Apple. For example, Warner’s $49.99 ten-pack would cost $152.90 for the HD titles if purchased individually.

For now, the 10-movie bundles look to be a limited-time promotion by Apple. That said, iTunes Movies routinely »

Apple iTunes Offers 10-Movie Bundles for $10, With Disney and 20th Century Fox Sitting Out Promo

12 September 2016 11:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Apple has teamed with five Hollywood studios for six different ten-movie bundles — priced at $9.99, or a buck per movie — in a one-day promotion celebrating the 10th anniversary of the tech giant selling digital movies.

Notably, neither Disney nor 20th Century Fox are among the studio partners for the “10 Years of iTunes Movies” deal. In Disney’s case, it operates its own digital-movie distribution service, Disney Movies Anywhere, which lets users download Mouse House titles and watch them on a variety of platforms.

The movie bundles became available early Monday and are available for only a 24-hour period, for iTunes users in the U.S.

The six different bundles are:

Warner Bros.: “The Judge,” “Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow,” “Pacific Rim,” “Magic Mike,” “Contagion,” “The Town,” “The Hangover,” “Sex and the City: The Movie,” “300,” “Superman ReturnsUniversal Studios: “Ride Along,” “Identity Thief,” “Rush,” “Snow White & the Huntsman,” “The Adjustment Bureau, »

Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos will follow their popular Netflix series Making A Murderer with an adaptation of the Huffington Post story "America's Most Admired Lawbreaker," according to Paste.

"America's Most Admired Lawbreaker," an article written by journalist Steven Brill, traces "the inside story" of Johnson & Johnson, the company that made billions of dollars marketing a harmful drug, Risperdal, to children and the elderly. Legal action against the company resulted in a $2 billion settlement, but Johnson & Johnson brought in $30 billion from sales of the drug. Brill's serialized report is divided into 15 parts. »

​'Money Monster': Are George Clooney and Julia Roberts Still Box Office Draws?

15 May 2016 8:31 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

15 years ago, a movie starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts would have been automatic box office gold -- a guaranteed $35 million opening weekend. This weekend, however, the pair's "Money Monster" opened in third place, with an estimated $15.0 million, and even that was better than analysts predicted.

Because it came behind "Captain America: Civil War" (which held the top spot for the second week in a row) and Disney's "The Jungle Book," "Money Monster" will probably engender a lot of hand-wringing about how original movies and old-fashioned star power no longer attract audiences like they once did. Even though the film earned a modest $3 million more than expected.

There was similar discussion this time last year, when Clooney's "Tormorrowland" flopped, followed by the failure of Cameron Crowe's "Aloha," despite the presence of Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone. Many observers saw those failures as a death knell for both original screenplays »

George Clooney: His best performances to date

10 May 2016 11:02 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

When it comes to movie stars, few actors in Hollywood better encapsulate what you want out of a veteran A-lister than George Clooney. Not only is he an accomplished actor with an Academy Award on his mantle, he’s a highly regarded writer and director, with an Oscar for producing under his belt as well. He’s a jack of all trades, and with a new star vehicle out on Friday in Money Monster (which I actually see tomorrow), I thought it was high time to go over his best performances to date. There’s no shortage of quality on Clooney’s permanent record, so finding his top works so far won’t be hard, on top of being a pleasure. He’s had a great career that’s only about at the midway point, so there’s not only tons to look at, but plenty more to come as well! »

Why The Graham Norton Show is so special

8 March 2016 3:15 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

twitter

google+

Why are movie publicists so keen to plonk their stars on Graham Norton's sofa? Because of this...

When it comes to the UK film junket circuit, publicists inevitably get limited time with the talent involved in a major movie. Thus, when Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice comes along later this month, the demands on Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill in particular will not be small. They’ll be expected to attend the film’s premiere, do a press conference, and do interviews with selected outlets.

And then there’s a strong chance they’ll end up on Graham Norton’s sofa.

I’ve been following Graham Norton’s chat shows since his earlier work on Channel Four, and his manner with his guests has rarely left me ever less than entertained while watching his programme. But I do think that The Graham Norton Show is something special, »

Hail, Caesar! movie review: far from perfect, but pretty swell

4 March 2016 8:34 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Full of the Coen Brothers’ usual exuberant joie de cinema, and a helluva lot of fun, but too scattershot to ever settle on saying the things it has to say. I’m “biast” (pro): love the Coen Brothers, and most of the cast

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

Hail, Coens! Even when their films aren’t entirely successful — as Hail, Caesar! is not — they are always fascinating to watch and to ponder. This one is in the same realm as The Hudsucker Proxy and O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Burn After Reading for its exuberant joie de cinema. Hail is a helluva lot of fun… but it’s too scattershot to ever settle on saying the things it has to say, and it never gives most of its many characters — too many, probably — room to work as stand-ins »

Rock the Kasbah movie review: whitemansplaining, the movie

22 February 2016 6:14 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Behold Bill Murray as the white savior barreling into a foreign land and teaching the ignorant natives how to be better people. Obnoxious and tone deaf. I’m “biast” (pro): love Bill Murray

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

Bill Murray is Richie Lanz, a sleazy Los Angeles music manager. He’s the kind of guy who takes money from a wannabe singer with no talent and no chance of even the most measly sort of success but who is also naive enough to believe that it’s normal to pay him upfront. And he’s clearly been stringing along his assistant, Ronnie (Zooey Deschanel: Your Highness, Yes Man), who has been working for him in the expectation that she will get a boost to her own singing career. So when he takes her to Kabul — yes, in Afghanistan — to perform for U. »

Updated: 'Deadpool' Targets #1 Opening Over 'How to Be Single' & 'Zoolander 2'

11 February 2016 12:48 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

It's President's Day weekend, and last year it was the R-rated Fifty Shades of Grey dominating all things box office with a record-smashing $85.1 million opening that bumped up to $93 million for the four-day. This weekend brings a different kind of R-rated heat to the box office in the form of the superhero feature Deadpool, which won't likely top Fifty Shades' record, but that doesn't mean it isn't looking to perform in a big way. Additional new releases include the romantic comedy How to be Single and the fifteen-years later sequel, Zoolander 2, both of which will battle for a distant second. Arriving in a big way this weekend, Fox's Deadpool will hit 3,558 theaters with its sights set on settling among the top ranks of R-rated comic book adaptation opening weekends. The list is currently topped by 2007's 300 with $70.8 million, followed by 2009's Watchmen with $55.2 million. The film is looking at »

Clooney and The Coen Brothers To Re-Team For 'Suburbicon'

2 February 2016 7:19 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

George Clooney and The Coen Brothers sure do love working together. Not only has the actor appeared in four films directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, but now his next directing gig is going to be written by them. It was announced some time ago that the trio was working on a film called Suburbicon. Well, the production is picking up steam and has now added A-list talent like Matt Damon and Julianne Moore to its cast. That's not all, but we now know some of the plot details for the upcoming dark dramedy.

According to The Wrap: "When a home invasion turns deadly, a picture-perfect family turns to blackmail, revenge and betrayal." Set in the fictitious town of Suburbicon, the film will take a darkly humorous look at what seemingly ordinary people are capable of when the context is just right. 

This will be Clooney's first directing gig since the underwhelming The Monuments Men, »

George Clooney Teases Next Directorial Effort Suburbicon; Matt Damon, Julianne Moore On Board

1 February 2016 3:03 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Marking his first foray behind the lens since wholly disappointing wartime drama The Monuments Men in 2014, George Clooney has finally shed some light on his next directorial effort, Suburbicon.

Based on a script from frequent collaborators Joel and Ethan Coen – the trio will soon partner for this weekend’s Hail, Caesar! – The Wrap has learned that Matt Damon and Julianne Moore are primed to star in the Clooney-helmed flick, which places a laser focus on one seemingly ordinary family thrust into extraordinary circumstances.

Stylized in the vein of the Coen Brothers’ Blood Simple, it’s understood that the actor-director’s new film will be akin to a black comedy, one that explores a home invasion in the quiet, titular town. According to the official logline, Suburbicon hosts the “best and worst of humanity” though “when a home invasion turns deadly, a picture perfect family turns to blackmail, revenge, and betrayal. »
