Report: Lego Dimensions has been cancelled

3 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Some rather sad news for Lego Dimensions fans today, as Eurogamer is reporting that Warner Bros. has made the decision to cancel the game a year earlier than originally expected, owing to lower than expected sales, particularly for the year two line.

According to the site, the Lego Dimensions packs were very costly to produce, particularly those which included unique Lego elements, and we often sold with little room for profit. Therefore, when retailers were forced to discount over-represented packs such as The Lego Movie, Ninjago and DC Comics, this effectively removed the profit margin.

Furthermore, the increased output for the Year Two waves put an incredible strain on Tt Games, and earlier this year the decision was made to sideline further development in favour of a return to the traditional Lego video game projects such as The Lego Ninjago Movie Video Game and Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2.

Recommended New Books on Filmmaking: ‘Dunkirk,’ Stan Brakhage, ‘Valerian,’ and More

18 October 2017 5:43 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s time to catch up with some of the most interesting cinema-centric books of the last few months, and it’s a diverse list. There’s some Lego, some Nolan, some Star Wars (of course), and even some vintage Stan Brakhage. That’s range.

Off the Cliff: Making of Thelma & Louise by Becky Aikman (Penguin Press)

The career of Ridley Scott is full of peaks and valleys. One of the peaks was the release of Thelma & Louise in 1991. The cultural impact of this story of two female outlaws cannot be overstated, and Becky Aikman’s account of the making of the film helps explain why. Thelma & Louise involved a unique cast of characters, including stars Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis, as well as a young hunk named Brad Pitt. But the most memorable figures here are Scott, who knew his career needed a change but could not originally see »

Review: The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017)

17 October 2017 4:23 PM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

In 2014, many feared the worse from The Lego Movie. They dreaded a corporate, cold, product-flogging animation, devoid of cinematic value and joy, and while we did actually receive such a film in this year’s lamentable The Emoji Movie, The Lego Movie was a huge – and welcome – surprise. Filled with innovative set pieces, anarchic action, bullet-like gags, references aplenty and an unexpectedly poignant punch that took the title product and applied it to a really human story. Then, the Lego Cinematic Universe continued to click (if you will), with this year’s incredibly fun and loving parody/homage The Lego Batman Movie. So is it three times lucky for the Lego team?

Well there may be some level of debate about that but make no mistake about it this new instalment in the Lego movie series is still fun, if a lot more inconsistent. The Lego Ninjago Movie is based »

The Lego Ninjago Movie karate kicks Blade Runner 2049 off top of the UK box office

17 October 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Snowman gets a slightly chilly reception, while arthouse audiences warm to animated biopic Loving Vincent and Sally Potter comedy The Party

Opening in the UK with £3.64m, The Lego Ninjago Movie tops the box-office chart, elbowing aside Blade Runner 2049. It’s the second Lego-themed chart-topper this year, following The Lego Batman Movie in February. It’s also the fifth animated chart-topper, following Sing, The Lego Batman Movie, The Boss Baby and Despicable Me 3.

Our Favorite Faces Of Jackie Chan

16 October 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

This week saw the North American wide release of Martin Campbell's thriller The Foreigner, starring Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan. For Jackie, it's actually his second film in the current box office top-10, as he also voices one of the characters in The Lego Ninjago Movie. At 63 years of age, Jackie Chan can of course no longer be expected to show his legendary acrobatic martial arts prowess of thirty (or more than forty) years ago, so to see him diversify towards animated films and serious thrillers makes sense. But legendary he rightfully is, as amazing he was. He has performed in more than 130 films, using a large variety of names and spellings (IMDb lists Jacky Chan, Yuan Lung Chan, Yuen-Lung Chan, Jakkî Chen,...

‘Happy Death Day’ Smells Sweet at Weekend Box Office

15 October 2017 12:53 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Horror flick “Happy Death Day” (Universal) easily topped the weekend. The latest production from prolific horror supplier Blumhouse ranked below their early year openers “Get Out” and “Split,” but $26.5 million for a movie with a $5-million production budget marks an instant success.

While some of the Blumhouse aura has been overshadowed by the massive success of Warner Bros.Stephen King juggernaut “It,” that shouldn’t take away producer Jason Blum’s mastery at consistently packaging original low-budget smash hits.

Happy Death Day” is a bit lower-profile than other recent Blum house efforts, but it still landed some respectable mainstream reviews. That’s a big change from how the genre has been treated in recent years.

Happy Death Day Takes the Box Office with $26.5M

15 October 2017 12:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This weekend marked the start of a rather overcrowded few weeks at the box office, with 13 new movies opening over the next three weeks. Four newcomers hit theaters this weekend, with two failing to crack the top 10, although the Blumhouse thriller Happy Death Day cracking the top spot with $26.5 million, easily dethroning last weekend's winner, Blade Runner 2049, which dropped to second place this weekend with $15.1 million, dropping 53.9% in its second box office weekend. The movie certainly performed better than expected this weekend, while the rest of the field most certainly did not.

Happy Death Day, the millennial slasher movie from Blumhouse, has already earned more than three times its $4.8 million budget, becoming just the latest low-budget hit from producer Jason Blum's company this year. Jason Blum has also produced M. Night Shyamalan's Split, which took in $278.3 million worldwide from a $9 million budget, and Get Out, which earned $253.1 million from a $4.9 million budget. »

Box Office: ‘Happy Death Day’ Crushes ‘Blade Runner 2049’ With $26.5 Million

15 October 2017 7:38 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Happy Death Day” has cause for celebration.

The latest from Blumhouse and Universal is leading the box office this weekend with $26.5 million from 3,149 locations. That puts it far ahead of “Blade Runner 2049,” which is skidding to $15.1 million during its second weekend at 4,058 locations, down 54% from its disappointing opening weekend.

A horror spin on “Groundhog Day,” “Happy Death Day” centers on Tree Gelbman (Jessica Rothe) as a woman who wakes up to the same day — her birthday — every day, and is murdered every time. Christopher B. Landon directed the film based on a script by Scott Lobdell. The film, which earned a B CinemaScore (good for a horror flick), particularly appealed to female and younger moviegoers — the audience was split 54% female, as opposed to 46% male, and 63% was under age 25. The release date was pegged to Friday the 13th and the weeks leading up to Halloween.

“We’re obviously thrilled with the release,” said Universal »

Blumhouse Makes a Wish for Another #1 Opener with 'Happy Death Day'

12 October 2017 2:32 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent Box Office Mojo news »

It's been a good year for Blumhouse Productions so far with Get Out and Split delivering impressive returns on minuscule budgets. This weekend their latest, Happy Death Day, hopes to follow suit as it targets a #1 finish, pushing WB's Blade Runner 2049 into runner-up position after just one week in theaters. Additional new releases include Stx's The Foreigner, Annapurna's Professor Marston & the Wonder Women and Open Road's Marshall as there's a little something for everyone in theaters, though it doesn't appear that little something will deliver big numbers at the box office collectively. On the heels of a very strong year so far, Blumhouse brings Happy Death Day to 3,149 theaters nationwide. The film takes the Groundhog Day concept and turns it into a horror film with Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones director, Christopher Landon, at the helm. Industry expectations are for a debut in the mid-teens, though we're anticipating a result just a bit higher. »

Movie Review – The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017)

11 October 2017 12:55 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Lego Ninjago Movie, 2017.

Directed by Charlie Bean.

Featuring the voice talents of Dave Franco, Michael Pena, Kumail Nanjiani, Fred Armisen, Zach Woods, Abbi Jacobson, Justin Theroux, Olivia Munn, and Jackie Chan.

Synopsis:

Ninjago is the story of six young ninja tasked with defending their island home, called Ninjago. By night, they’re gifted warriors, using their skills and awesome fleet of vehicles to fight villains and monsters. By day, they’re ordinary teens struggling against their greatest enemy: high school.

Of recent successes, the emergence, and ultimate maintenance of The Lego Movie and all that followed is maybe the most surprising. What rightly should have been a shameless cash grab, a lame attempt at stocking toy stores and filling space beneath Christmas trees, turned out to be something far more impressive.

Where both of its predecessors were a joy, The Lego Ninjago Movie is maybe more slight, aimed squarely »

WB and New Line's 'It' Propels September 2017 to Record Heights

11 October 2017 10:33 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent Box Office Mojo news »

September 2017 saw record returns with calendar grosses topping $695 million, falling just shy of becoming the first September to ever total $700 million at the domestic box office. Leading the way was Warner Bros. and New Line's massive hit It, which delivered record numbers of its own and accounted for over 40% of the month's total gross. September is also the first month since April to show an improvement over the same month in 2016, with September grosses finishing 18.3% higher than 2016. From a yearly stand point, 2017 was pacing 6.3% behind 2016 at the end of August and September grosses helped turn things around somewhat with 2017 pacing 4.6% behind 2016's record year by the end of the month. However, with October already pacing 20.8% behind last year (as of October 9) it's looking like September's gains will be lost throughout the current month, putting additional pressure on final two months of the year to turn the tide.Overall, September 2017 saw calendar grosses reach $696.2 million, »

Marvel announces Lego Black Panther movie Trouble in Wakanda

10 October 2017 7:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like February’s live-action solo movie won’t be the only Black Panther film arriving next year, as Marvel’s VP of Animation Cort Lane announced at New York Comic Con that Lego is working on an animated offering entitled Black Panther: Trouble In Wakanda.

Unlike The Lego Movie, The Lego Batman Movie and The Lego Ninjago Movie, this feature won’t be a theatrical release, but rather continuing in the vein of Lego Marvel Super Heroes: Maximum Overload and the various Lego DC Super Heroes: Justice League movies.

At present, there’s no further details on Black Panther: Trouble In Wakanda., but it would seem a pretty safe bet that we can expect to be timed around the release of Ryan Coogler’s live-action film, or perhaps even May’s Avengers: Infinity War.

Box Office Weekend: Blade Runner 2049 Takes Over Box Office

9 October 2017 2:14 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Although it debuted with over $32 million and held the top spot for the weekend box office, the thirty-five years in the making sequel Blade Runner 2049, fell south of the film’s $45-$55 million expectations. Despite mostly positive reviews, the film may have a long climb to ensure that it’s a domestic hit.

The survival epic The Mountain Between Us, starring Kate Winslet and Idris Elba finished in second-place with $10.1 million, just edging out the Stephen King adaptation It, which brought in another $10 million in its fifth week of release, to bring its domestic total to $305.2 million. The animated My Little Pony: The Movie debuted with $8.8 million. Elsewhere, Kingsman: The Golden Circle added another $8.1 million to its three-week total of $80 million to close out this week’s top film.

The Tom Cruise-led American Made brought in considerably less in it’s second-week of release, $8.1 million this week compared to $22.3 million last week. »

Video Game Review – The Lego Ninjago Movie Video Game

9 October 2017 6:53 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Calum Petrie reviews The Lego Ninjago Movie Video Game…

The Lego games have been around for a good few years now, often taking on a comical and lighthearted approach to the source material and its licensed properties. The franchises that have received this treatment have spanned from Star Wars to Harry Potter as well as everything in between with the collectable and ever growing adventures of Lego Dimensions.

Though what happens when Lego reverts back to its own IPs? What happens when they do not rely on the outside creations of other franchises? Well, The Lego Ninjago Movie Video Game is possibly the most original Lego game to come out in many years, but does this actually help or hinder the game’s performance, as well as the film it is based upon?

Lego Ninjago is an action adventure game with a lot of exploration and block destroying thrown in for good measure. »
