‘Skeleton Twins’ Robust In Specialty Box-Office Expansion; ‘Pride’ Solid In Debut

28 September 2014 11:44 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Even with another flood of specialty film debuts, The Skeleton Twins, the dramedy starring Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader, had another impressive box office showing in its third weekend. Meanwhile, another dozen films tried to elbow past last week’s 14 newcomers and numerous others already in the market, to middling success among those reporting.

Other than Twins, the holdovers that look like they’re gaining some autumnal momentum include IFC FilmsThe Trip To Italy with Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, and more niche-oriented films such as American Experience/PBS Films’ doc Last Days In Vietnam and Oscilloscope’s Art And Craft. Starz Media also scored a robust gross for the second week of Not Cool, featuring YouTube star Shane Dawson, as it migrated east to New York and was also profiled on a Starz channel doc series.

CBS Films’ Pride can be proud of scoring the weekend’s highest average among new titles. »

Katie Holmes Glowing - Tom Cruise's Ex at Days And Nights Movie Premiere

27 September 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Always looking good, Katie Holmes looked especially fresh-faced and glowing at the premiere of her new movie 'Days And Nights' in New York City. The 35-year-old actress showed off her slender legs in a pair of skinny jeans, opting for a silky blue tank top and fitted blazer on top. Earlier this year, the brunette beauty said she had no regrets about her time with ex-husband Tom Cruise. Katie, who split from the 52-year-old actor in June 2012 after six years of marriage, insists she is "really grateful" for all of her experiences but prefers to focus on the future and caring for their daughter, Suri, eight. Asked if she ever felt like making a deal to go back to the low-key life she had before she started dating the A-list actor in 2005, the 'Giver' star told Matt Lauer on the Today Show: "You know what? I never really look back. »

Birds of a Feather: Camargo’s Debut a Tepid Chekhovian Transplant

Contemporizing classic literature can be a tricky feat, though it more often than not seems unjustified. Actor Christian Camargo has reworked Anton Chekov’s classic play The Seagull for his directorial debut, Days and Nights, curiously setting the Russian tragedy in 1984 New England. With an extremely lucrative cast at hand, Camargo’s fiddling around with the text isn’t completely bereft of ingenious new ways to converse with Chekov’s classic, though more often than not, this is simply another tedious glimpse of familial dysfunction, relocated to the heart of a Wasp’s nest. While it isn’t necessary to be familiar with the material Camargo is in correspondence with, one’s awareness of it may impede rather than enhance this film, which often feels strained or confused upon comparison.

It’s Memorial Day Weekend in 1984, and famous »

Chekhovian Days and Nights Exposes a Family Coming Unhinged

23 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Every Chekhov adaptation presents unhappiness in its own way, albeit typically at a country house where a tense family gathering exposes each character's underlying discontent. Loosely based on The Seagull, writer and director Christian Camargo's debut feature, Days and Nights, unfolds during Memorial Day 1984, when Reagan's America offered Cold War propaganda, a deadly immunodeficiency virus, and an atmosphere of stifled creativity. There's a touch of Grey Gardens to the New England lake house owned by Elizabeth (Allison Janney), an actress who brings her latest paramour home for the holiday weekend. Camargo casts himself as the outsider, Peter, a Hollywood director who becomes the focus of desire, resentment, and hostility. Peter immediately senses a ruin »
