The Preview Reel: New Lego, Spy, and Horror Movies

3 hours ago | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Welcome to this week’s “Preview Reel” column, where we look at the week’s upcoming wide-release movies. The horror film It dominated the box office again last weekend as two new releases struggled to find their audience. It would appear though that the two-week reign for the Stephen King adaption is about to end as two high-profile releases (The Lego Ninjago Movie and Kingsman: The Golden Circle) and one small budget horror flick (Friend Request) hit screens. All three movies seem to be targeting different demographics, but which one is best for you? Let’s find out.

The Lego Ninjago Movie

What we are excited about: The Lego Movie franchise has turned out surprisingly good animated films. The Lego Movie was arguably the best animated movie of 2014, even though it was completely snubbed at the Oscars, and this year’s The Lego Batman Movie was an enjoyable riff on the classic comic book hero. »

Box Office: Can ‘Kingsman’ or ‘Lego Ninjago’ Knock ‘It’ From Top Spot?

4 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This is, without a doubt, an unusually strong September at the box office.

The thanks go mostly to “It,” which charged out of the starting gate for Warner Bros. and New Line as a record-breaking hit two weekends ago with $123 million domestic. Last weekend it easily stayed on top of the North American charts with $60 million. But now, Pennywise the clown has tough competition from two new releases — Fox’s “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” and “The Lego Ninjago Movie” from Warner Bros.

The sequel to “Kingsman: The Secret Service” looks like the leader of the pack. It’s tracking with a wide-ish margin in the $40 millions from more than 4,000 locations. That would be an improvement on the original, which had a domestic opening of $36.2 million. Foreign grosses boosted the first “Kingsman” to become a global hit, and it finished its run with $414.4 million worldwide. So B.O. observers should look abroad for the second go-around as well »

It set to lose box office top spot this weekend

7 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There won’t be three successive weeks on top for It as the horror sensation is set to lose its top spot at the Us box office.

It’s been quite something to see, the new Stephen King adaptation of the popular horror novel It has really caught the public’s imagination and is proving to be a juggernaut at the box office.

But while it has been breaking numerous records, including becoming the highest grossing film ever to be released in September, it won’t manage to secure a third straight week as the box office king.

Two new entries look to be in line to slide past the 80s set horror film, with The Lego Ninjago Movie and Kingsman: The Golden Circle making their debuts.

It will likely be a very close race for the top two spots with Ninjago predicted to bring in around $55 million and Kingsman roughly $52 million. »

‘The Lego Ninjago Movie’ Review: Father, Son and Everyone Else

11 hours ago | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

The Lego Ninjago Movie is the third film from Warner Brothers based on characters made out of the iconic interlocking building toys. In terms of box office risk it surpasses its predecessors without the crutch of popular culture and allure of a snarky Batman to lean on. That alone dooms this plastic-y ode to martial arts films to be the least memorable of the bunch.

Without having to rely on DC's man in black allows The Lego Ninjago Movie to take more chances and push the Lego movie franchise in bold new directions. Links to our physical world are unexpected, albeit also wholly unexplained. For example, as visually impressive as the commingling of an impressively scaled Asian-inspired Lego city is with real water and flora, there's no easily decipherable reason as to why they coexist within the story. They just do.

Then there's Meowthra, star of the second trailer who »

Lego Ninjago Movie Review: A Laugh Riot for All-Ages

13 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Lego Ninjago Movie is a hyper visual adventure loaded with humor and warmth. Kids will be dazzled by the frenetic animation, while enjoying a lot of laughs with the adults. I walked into this film cold. Beyond a fleeting glimpse of the trailer, I didn't have a clue about anything Ninjago related. Kudos to the directing and writing team for crafting a film enjoyable to all audiences. They successfully introduce the characters and setting before veering off into the crazy plot. Lego and Warner Bros. are officially on a streak. Their third collaboration doesn't surpass Lego Batman, but is a damn good effort.

The story takes place on the bustling island of Ninjago, where Lloyd (Dave Franco) is having a terrible sixteenth birthday. Everyone on Ninjago hates his guts. Why? Because Lloyd is the son of the evil Lord Garmadon (Justin Theroux), a maniacal, four-armed despot hell bent on conquering Ninjago. »

Disappointing August 2017 Closed Out the Worst Summer Movie Season in Over 10 Years

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

As the September box office attempts to get 2017 back on track*the month is currently up 14% compared to last year*the chapter ends on what was a dismal August 2017 at the domestic box office. August was the fourth month in a row to show a decline compared to the previous year, all of which contributed to the worst Summer movie season in over ten years, in which the total summer gross failed to top $4 billion for the first time since 2006. August 2017 wrapped up as the worst August in twenty years with calendar grosses delivering a combined $657.7 million from 225 movies, 35.5% behind last year's gross and failing to top $700 million for the first time since 2000. Thanks to the continued performance of Annabelle: Creation, which just topped $100 million domestically yesterday, the month did deliver a $100+ million earner, a feat that looked as if it might not happen not too long ago.

Zach Woods on ‘The Lego Ninjago Movie’, Improvising, and Working with Spielberg on ‘The Post’

13 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

High school can be really tough for a typical teenager, but when you're a half-human, half-robot who is the super-cool Ice Ninja and you can blast a glacial stream from a giant Ice Tank, and yet you can't tell anyone about it or get the glory for it, things get really weird. In The Lego Ninjago Movie, Zane (voiced by Silicon Valley star Zach Woods) just wants to fit in and be seen as a genuine teenager, but that's hard to do when one of your best friends (voiced by Dave Franco) is the … »

Dave Franco talks becoming a toy ninja in The Lego Ninjago Movie

Dave Franco talks becoming a toy ninja in The Lego Ninjago MovieDave Franco talks becoming a toy ninja in The Lego Ninjago MovieBob Strauss - Cineplex Magazine9/20/2017 10:00:00 Am

Dave Franco sits on a metal chair in a stripped-down Beverly Hills hotel room looking as happy as he can be. All that stuff you read about the actor’s infectious smile being the most winning in the business? Not fake news.

You won’t actually get to see that gregarious grin in Franco’s latest movie, however. In The Lego Ninjago Movie he merely provides the voice of animated brick boy Lloyd, a troubled teen who leads a squad of ninjas against the evil Garmadon who wants to destroy their ancient/modern/futuristic island city.

But even though you won’t get a gander at the 32-year-old star of Neighbors, 21 Jump Street and Now You See Me in the animated feature, »

‘The Lego Ninjago Movie’ Review: Cute and Funny Despite a Familiar Construction

14 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Lego Ninjago Movie is the first Lego movie where I went in not having much of an investment on what happened. I cared about The Lego Movie because I like Lego, and I cared about The Lego Batman Movie because I like Batman, but Ninjago is a Lego sub-brand where I’ve never really been caught up with the toys (basically Japanese-inspired mechs) or the Cartoon Network series Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu. And yet what The Lego Ninjago Movie shows is that these Lego movies have now established an identity outside of the initial brand, and … »

Film Review: ‘The Lego Ninjago Movie’

14 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Before delving into the merits of “The Lego Ninjago Movie,” it’s worth pausing to reflect on just how remarkable it is that the third film in a cinematic franchise based on plastic children’s construction toys comes with high expectations attached. Before Lego launched its own film empire, other toy companies like Hasbro had established assembly lines of often profitable, invariably awful branded theatrical entertainments, and there was no reason to expect anything different from Lego. Yet 2014’s “The Lego Movie” and last spring’s “The Lego Batman Movie” surprised just about everyone by being smart, sophisticated, cognizant of their own synergistic origins, and most importantly, actual movies. That the Lego Cinematic Universe (Lcu) became a recognizable acronym isn’t surprising; that it came to signify quality is almost miraculous.

Superficially, “Ninjago” is very much in line with its predecessors. Based on Lego’s ninja-themed original property – already a Cartoon Network TV show – the film is »

'The Lego Ninjago Movie': Film Review

14 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The product of three credited directors, six credited screenwriters, five editors and one executive producer who helmed two of the most uninspired trilogy enders in recent memory (Brett Ratner, of X-Men: The Last Stand and Red Dragon), The Lego Ninjago Movie is, finally, more or less the kind of advertainment observers expected from the first big-screen adventure featuring Lego toys. A perfectly adequate family film for kids who love watching things they've seen many times before (which is to say, most kids), it offers plenty of chuckles for their parents but nothing approaching the glee of that first Lego Movie.

‘Lego Ninjago Movie’ Review: Formula’s Still Fun, But the Story Feels Mechanical

14 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“You must forget everything you know,” a mysterious pawn shop owner (Jackie Chan) intones, as he tells a little boy the wondrous story of Ninjago. You’ll probably enjoy the experience more if you’re able to take his advice, too. “The Lego Ninjago Movie” does fit into the decidedly silly, self-aware sphere of the Lego movie franchise. Comparisons won’t help it any, though: unlike the two previous entries, this one feels a little worn around the edges. But while parents may miss the second-level smarts of its predecessors, kids should fall right into the fun. A lot of the credit goes to. »

‘The Lego Ninjago Movie’ Review: Warner Bros. Keeps Building the World’s Most Consistently Great Animated Franchise

14 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

You probably know what Lego are, and you probably know who Batman is (don’t say “Bruce Wayne, Gotham’s billionaire playboy”), and that brand awareness helped to propel 2015’s “The Lego Movie” and this February’s “The Lego Batman Movie” into massive hits that transcended their target audience, appealing equally to adults and children alike. On the other hand — and this is a scientific fact — not a single person who’s gone through puberty has ever heard of “Ninjago.” Ninjas? Sure. The concept of going? Absolutely. But “Ninjago”? That’s definitely not a real thing, let alone a popular line of toys that’s spawned graphic novels, video games, and a television show that’s now been on the air for six full seasons.

And yet, Warner Bros. continues to insists otherwise, the studio inexplicably dedicating the pivotal third film of their massive Lego movie franchise to a property »

Lego’s movie mojo runs out with Ninjago

14 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

It took three movies and almost four years, but it did eventually happen. Warner Bros. animation has finally made the uninspired Lego cartoon that so many people were expecting from The Lego Movie back in early 2014. Granted, The Lego Ninjago Movie is still more irreverent than the cynical, kids-only cash-in that…
