Star Wars: The Force Awakens expected to shift $5 billion of merchandise in first year

31 August 2015 2:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We all know that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is going to rake it in at the worldwide box office, with predictions of a $600 million + global opening weekend, and now analyst Tim Nollen has told The Hollywood Reporter that tie-in products for the hotly-anticipated blockbuster could pull in around $5 billion in sales within the first twelve months.

“The Force Awakens could generate $5 billion in consumer merchandise sales in its first year of release, assuming it does better than Cars 2’s $3 billion,” states Nollen. “This would easily net Disney about $500 million in licensing and retail revenue. Cars 2 sold more than $2.8 billion worth of merchandise in its first year alone in 2011, and the original Cars movie sold approximately $10 billion worth of merchandise in its first five years of release. Taking into account the strength of the Star Wars franchise, which has altogether sold over $20 billion worth of licensed goods in its lifetime, »

Beyond Fright Review: 6 Years

31 August 2015 7:04 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

There’s somewhat of a youthful arrogance when you’re in your first long-term relationship. That naive “We’ll always be together” mentality that comes along with being with someone since you were a teenage has always made for good storytelling, and Hannah Fidell’s 6 Years captures just that, the moment when that long-term, only thinking of each other kind of youthful relationship begins to compete with the ambitions and temptations of being a grown adult.

Telling the story of Don (Ben Rosenfield, A Most Violent Year) and Melanie (American Horror Story‘s Taissa Farmiga), a couple in their early 20’s, one that has been a dating unit since their teens. While Melanie is on her way to becoming a teacher, Don interns at a record label, and dreams of being a part of that full time. They go to parties together, know and love each other’s families, and in spite of their friends, »

New Captain America: Civil War footage! Fantastic Four review! – Watch The Flickering Myth Movie Show #7

30 August 2015 5:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Black Widow can punch explosions.

Fantastic…Bore. Fantastic…Fourth Worst Movie Ever Made. Fantastic…4%. Or, as some have taken to calling it, just ‘Four’.

It was the fail story of the Summer, with Twentieth Century Fox’s tentpole superhero blockbuster bombing so hard at the box office, it took out a five-mile stretch of Odeons in the Greater Bexleyheath area. In the September edition of The Flickering Myth Movie Show, Oli Davis, Rebecca Perfect, Luke Owen and Kat Kourbeti discuss the problems with the movie, the practice of entrusting $100million+ franchises with young, independent filmmakers (think Gareth Edwards on Godzilla and Colin Treverrow on Jurassic World), and who is really to blame for the movie’s failure – Fantastic Four’s director Josh Trank, or the studio that allegedly hamstrung his production?

Fantastic Four also gets to be the first film receiving the Best Bad Reviews treatment – our new series that »

27 August 2015 10:43 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal Pictures’ “By the Sea” will world premiere Nov. 5 as the opening-night film of the AFI Fest. Pic, to screen at the Tcl Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, was written, directed, produced by and stars Angelina Jolie Pitt and also stars and was produced by Brad Pitt.

The cast includes Mélanie Laurent, Melvil Poupaud, Niels Arestrup and Richard Bohringer.

The 29th AFI Fest takes place Nov. 5-12 in Hollywood. Screenings and galas will be held at the Dolby Theatre, Tcl Chinese Theatre, the Tcl Chinese 6 Theatres, Egyptian Theatre and the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. The full festival lineup and schedule will be unveiled in October.

Film festivals are increasingly important in a film’s awards campaign, and last year, the AFI Fest confirmed its key role when it premiered “Selma” and “American Sniper,” which both wound up with best-picture nominations. Last year’s AFI opening-night film was “A Most Violent Year.”

Star Wars: The Force Awakens box office estimates suggest a $615 million global opening weekend

27 August 2015 9:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We all know Star Wars: The Force Awakens is going to be big – the only question is, ‘how big’?

Well, according to predictions from Deadline, the first chapter of Disney’s Star Wars sequel trilogy could pull in a $615 million worldwide opening weekend, which would shatter the previous record set earlier this year by Jurassic World on $524.4 million.

See Also: Star Wars: The Force Awakens behind-the-scenes images and Bb-8 Empire cover

Analysts are suggesting a $300 million domestic opening (again, another Jurassic World record) plus a further $315 million internationally, which would almost certainly propel the J.J. Abrams-directed film to the fastest $1 billion of all time, held by – yep, you guessed it – Jurassic World, which achieved the feat in just 13 days.

The Force Awakens is set to dominate multiplexes in December and early January, playing on around 50% of screens, as well as having its run of IMAX theaters exclusively for a month. »

J.J. Abrams talks Kylo Ren, Supreme Leader Snoke and the First Order from Star Wars: The Force Awakens

25 August 2015 12:24 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday Empire Magazine unleashed a brand new image of Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren, the new villain from December’s hugely anticipated blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and now we have some comments from director J.J. Abrams, who briefly details Kylo Ren’s allegiance to Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) and the inspiration for the First Order.

“Kylo Ren is not a Sith,” states Abrams. “He works under Supreme Leader Snoke, who is a powerful figure on the Dark Side of the Force. [The First Order] all came out of conversations about what would have happened if the Nazis all went to Argentina but then started working together again? What could be born of that? Could The First Order exist as a group that actually admired The Empire? Could the work of The Empire be seen as unfulfilled? And could Vader be a martyr? »
