20 December 2016 2:48 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

"There's a ghost in the greenhouse that four or five different crew members claim to have seen." Kate Beckinsale's character Dana encounters a supernatural presence within an old home in The Disappointments Room, but the movie's real-life filming location was potentially haunted, too, as director D.J.

Relativity Furloughs Employees Over Holiday Break (Exclusive)

20 December 2016 12:35 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Eight months after it exited bankruptcy promising a shiny new incarnation, Relativity Media is not making spirits bright: The entertainment company told all of its roughly 30 employees on Monday that they would not be paid over the company’s traditional two-week holiday break.

Workers at the Beverly Hills-based film company were informed that they would be furloughed during Christmas and New Year’s weeks — a period they have gotten off for many years, but traditionally with pay.

“Usually this is the time of year when there is paid leave time for two weeks,” said one person familiar with the company. “But now everybody is out of the office, operations are completely shut down, and they are going without pay.”

The Relativity workers were told to return to the Beverly Hills headquarters on Jan. 3, according to three individuals with knowledge of the situation. But one worker told a friend he is »

EuropaCorp Considers Dropping Relativity From Joint Venture; Seeking Partner for ‘Valerian’ (Exclusive)

15 December 2016 10:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The board of EuropaCorp is meeting Thursday evening to go over its quarterly financial results and is expected to discuss if it will pursue legal action to oust Relativity Media from Red, the distribution and marketing joint venture the two companies formed in 2014.

Relativity Media has not paid its bills in months, which EuropaCorp believes leaves it in breach of contract. As reported by Variety in October, EuropaCorp previously told its shareholders that Relativity was in danger of losing its 50% stake in the venture after failing to pay its share of the quarterly overhead which was estimated between $2 million to $3 million by Dec. 14.

A source close to the board said shareholders were eager to reach a decision over Relativity’s role in Red because of the upcoming release of “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” which has an estimated budget of $170 million and is set for a summer roll-out in the U. »

1 December 2016 1:52 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Even though the holidays are upon us, that doesn’t mean the horror and sci-fi genres are slowing down, especially on the VOD side of things. For December, we have 21 different titles arriving on digital platforms, including two films I absolutely adored this year: The Eyes of My Mother (hits VOD on December 2nd) and Beyond the Gates (arrives on December 9th). Several other indie films will be coming home to VOD over the next few weeks, too, including Pet, Abattoir, The Possession Experiment, and Blood Brothers, and for those of you who may have missed it in theaters, Train to Busan hits VOD on December 13th, and it is not to be missed.

Other VOD releases for December include Solace, Morgan, Good Tidings, It Watches, The Disappointments Room, and the V/H/S-based SiREN.

'Moana' To Repeat at #1 Over Post-Thanksgiving Weekend

1 December 2016 1:38 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

Following the hustle and bustle of the extended, Thanksgiving weekend it makes sense this weekend would be a bit quieter. Set to repeat atop the weekend box office is Disney's Moana followed once again by WB's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as the rest of the field settles in below. The weekend features one new wide release in Bh Tilt's Incarnate, offering horror fans a little something as the lone horror film currently in wide release, while Freestyle issues the moderate release of the faith-based feature Believe. At the top, Moana should drop somewhere around 54% from its $56.6 million three-day weekend for a second weekend around $26 million pushing its domestic cume a couple million shy of $120 million by the end of the weekend. For comparison, Frozen dipped 53% following its record-breaking three-day wide release and Tangled dipped 55.7% after its $48.7 million Thanksgiving weekend three-day debut. In the runner-up position, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them »

Carter Swan Leaves Relativity Media (Exclusive)

27 November 2016 10:53 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Carter Swan has left Relativity Media where he was serving as vice president of development, Variety has learned.

He is believed to have taken an unspecified job at 3311 Productions, which an insider says will involve having a senior role in the production company’s television division. A spokesperson for 3311 did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Swan came over to Relativity earlier this year after Dana Brunetti took over as president of the film division. He had worked with Brunetti for a decade at Trigger Street Productions. The company was co-founded by Kevin Spacey and was responsible for the likes of “The Social Network” and “Captain Phillips.” Brunetti said he encouraged Swan to take the new job.

'Doctor Strange' to Repeat at #1 as 'Arrival', 'Almost Christmas' & 'Shut In' Hit Theaters

10 November 2016 1:40 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

Last weekend saw the top twelve outperform the previous year by a whopping +134.6%, a dramatic improvement after a sluggish October and Fall movie season. Fortunately, this weekend is looking like it too will show an improvement over the same weekend last year with a pair of holdovers leading the charge as Doctor Strange and Fox's Trolls are looking at another one-two finish. Among the week's new releases, Paramount's Arrival is looking at an opening that could even surpass the most optimistic predictions followed by Universal's holiday comedy Almost Christmas and EuropaCorp's thriller Shut In. Meanwhile, Sony will debut Ang Lee's Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk in just two theaters before going nationwide this weekend and A24 is expanding Moonlight into 176 theaters (+93) as it continues its impressive run in limited release. After an $85 million opening last weekend, Disney and Marvel's Doctor Strange should be looking at a second weekend drop right around 53% or so. »

Sluggish October 2016 Box Office Contributes to Lackluster Fall Season

8 November 2016 9:58 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

A lackluster October 2016 at the box office saw calendar grosses down ~8% compared to last year, contributing to a disappointing Fall movie season that finished down 9.3% compared to 2015. As a result, only one new release in the Fall 2016 timeframe (Sully) has managed to gross over $100 million domestically so far and it would appear it's going to remain that way. Overall, October saw a record 293 films (+32 compared to 2015) generate $657.4 million compared to the $715.3 million from 261 films last year, resulting in the second worst per film average over the last 35 years. For both, 2016's October timeframe and the Fall movie season, this was the second year in a row that saw a decline in grosses, which could be chalked up to the fact 2014 delivered a record Fall movie season, driven by a record October. That said, while October 2015 was down just 5.6% compared to 2014, October 2016 is down 13.27% compared to 2014.October 2016's largest grossing calendar »

Netflix Moves to Kill Relativity's $1.5 Billion Lawsuit

7 November 2016 8:01 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Netflix is moving rather quickly to put an end to the $1.5 billion lawsuit filed three weeks ago by Ryan Kavanaugh's Relativity Media. On Monday, the streaming giant filed a motion to strike Relativity's complaint and took some vindication in the film studio's troubles since emerging from Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The two sides have been engaged in a legal war since the beginning of the year. Netflix initially opposed Relativity's restructuring and later insisted it had the right to stream Masterminds, a comedy starring Zach Galifianakis, and The Disappointments Room, a horror film that features Kate Beckinsale, ahead of their theatrical release.

Relativity-YuuZoo Deal Much Smaller Than Initially Reported

31 October 2016 2:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The latest investment designed to bail out Relativity Media appears to be a lot smaller than reported in an initial media account last week — amounting to a minority investment, starting at $27.5 million in cash, rather than an outright sale worth up to $250 million.

Details of the anticipated investment by  YuuZoo Corporation, a social media company based in Singapore, were revealed in a filing with the Singapore Stock Exchange.

The six-page document shows that YuuZoo will receive a 33.3% stake in Beverly Hills-based Relativity in exchange for an investment of $50 million. The first $27.5 million of the payment is supposed to be made in cash, while the remaining $22.5 million can be paid in cash or YuuZoo shares, which are currently trading at about 17 cents.

The document filed with Singapore authorities also describes the possibility of an additional $100 million investment by YuuZoo, which could be made within two years. That would give the social media, »

Relativity, EuropaCorp Clash Over Unpaid Bills (Exclusive)

31 October 2016 9:47 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tensions are mounting between EuropaCorp and Relativity Media over unpaid bills related to the film companies’ distribution joint venture, Variety has learned.

In a document to shareholders last week, EuropaCorp said that Relativity was in danger of losing its 50% stake in the venture after failing to pay its share of the quarterly overhead. If it doesn’t pay between $2 million to $3 million by Dec. 14, EuropaCorp says it will gain full control of the distribution arm and Relativity will lose access to its services. The joint venture is dubbed Red and has been used to release such films as “Masterminds” and “Nine Lives,” as well as upcoming projects like Luc Besson’s “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.”

Relativity emerged from bankruptcy protection earlier this year with its founder Ryan Kavanaugh retaining control of the film studio. Since that time, however, it has struggled to put together a slate of successful films, »

Horror Movies Make Tough Times Less Scary for Studios

26 October 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This Halloween, the movie business should give thanks for things that go bump in the night. Horror movies remain surefire winners at a time when studios are struggling to convince audiences to abandon couch-potatoing and hit up the multiplex.

“Don’t Breathe,” “Lights Out,” and “The Purge: Election Year,” are just a few recent hits to scratch moviegoers’ itch to be thrillingly terrified.

Such films are cheap to produce, which can make them wildly profitable. And should they fall flat, like September’s “The Disappointments Room,” the financial pain is kept to a minimum.

Movio, a provider of movie-marketing software, crunched the numbers on 24 scary films released between January 2015 and September 2016. The company found that horror ticket-buyers tend to be young, and that Hispanics and African-Americans make up a large percentage of the audience. Moreover, fans of the genre don’t overlap with those who routinely check out action films, »

Relativity Media Sues, Blaming Its Struggles on Netflix

18 October 2016 3:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Updated: Relativity Media has filed a lawsuit charging that Netflix breached its agreement to stream the mini-studio’s films and did so much damage that it undermined Relativity’s financial underpinnings — forcing the company to put itself up for sale.

The case filed in Santa Clara County Superior Court charges the streaming giant with breaking its contract with Relativity and committing “trade libel” by suggesting that recent Relativity films should be released on the streaming service before they opened in theaters.

The company founded by entrepreneur Ryan Kavanaugh suggests in its legal pleadings that it has suffered damages “in excess” of $1.5 billion.

“We find this lawsuit baseless and ironic,” a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement. During court hearings into Relativity’s bankruptcy, the streaming company argued that it was Relativity that had violated their contract, by failing to produce the minimum number of films and failing to release movies on the dates promised. »

Great Job, Internet!: Yes, real-life CPAs are interested in seeing The Accountant

12 October 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

With the exception of The Disappointments Room, the least appetizing major movie title of 2016 might be Gavin O’Connor’s The Accountant, a crime thriller starring Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, and J.K. Simmons, due out this Friday. Accountancy is a necessary profession, but it is not necessarily a cinematic one. Still, there is one demographic that might be especially interested in a film called The Accountant: actual, real-life accountants. Uproxx writer Mike Ryan began to wonder if genuine CPAs were particularly pumped about this film, especially after his tweet about the subject garnered some enthusiastic responses from number crunchers. So he embarked upon an entertaining but admittedly not very scientific study. Ryan’s method consisted of cold-calling accounting firms. The results were hit and miss. This is a surprisingly hectic season for accountants, since it’s now crunch time for stragglers who filed for extensions on their returns »
