“Pirates of the Caribbean” Sails Stormy Memorial Day Waters to $77 Million

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

After wavering in the $75-80 million range, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” looks like it will settle at an estimated $77 million haul for the four-day weekend. That amounts to a 15.5 percent drop from the three-day, $90 million opening for the last “Pirates” movie, “On Stranger Tides.” It also falls short of the $79.8 million four-day total for last year’s No. 1 film, “X-Men: Apocalypse.” It’s another sign that franchise fatigue is taking its toll on this series…but only in America.

‘Pirates’ Disappoints and ‘Baywatch’ Sank: Why This Is the Wrong Kind of Record-Setting Memorial Day Weekend

28 May 2017 2:03 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” (Disney) was an easy #1 for the holiday weekend. And considering domestic franchise fatigue, and much stronger foreign results, it’s hardly a failure. (The same can’t be said for the stumbling Paramount and “Baywatch.”)

However, both fell short of even managed expectations. And with some really ugly drops among holdovers, one of the weakest holiday weekends in decades — and easily, the worst in adjusted grosses for the century.

One reason is Memorial Day is no longer the must-have date for theaters, but that’s been the case for years. So it’s no excuse for the overall weakness, which suggests some deep-rooted issues that continue to plague the industry.

The Top 10

1. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (Disney) New – Cinemascore: A-; Metacritic: 39; Est. budget: $230 million

$62,179,000 in 4,276 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $14,451,000; Cumulative: $62,179,000

2. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 »

'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' Top Memorial Day Weekend Box Office as 'Baywatch' Struggles

28 May 2017 6:38 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales led the way this Memorial Day weekend while Paramount's Baywatch struggled to match expectations. Meanwhile, Disney's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues to deliver while the studio's Beauty and the Beast became only the eighth film to cross $500 million domestically. Overall, the weekend was down ~15% compared to Memorial Day weekend last year when both X-Men: Apocalypse and Alice Through the Looking Glass delivered underwhelming openings. With an estimated $62 million for the three-day and $76.6 million for the four-day weekend, Disney's fifth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise finished atop the holiday weekend box office. Additionally, the film brought in an estimated $208.4 million internationally, the 12th largest overseas opening of all-time, as it opened in virtually the entire overseas marketplace. This includes a $67.8 million debut in China and an industry record opening in Russia of an estimated $18.6 million. Additional »

New Mutants Wants Rosario Dawson as Dr. Cecilia Reyes

27 May 2017 10:20 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With 20th Century Fox's New Mutants starting production in July, the cast is starting to come together. A report surfaced yesterday that Rosario Dawson is in talks to join the cast, although it was not revealed who she may be playing. Another report has confirmed that the actress is in fact set to play Dr. Cecilia Reyes, if a deal is made. If that wasn't enough, yet another report claims that two more actresses are being considered for the role of Mirage, a.k.a. Dani Moonstar. The two actresses reportedly in contention for this role are Blu Hunt and True O'Brien, with this report speculating that True O'Brien may be the front runner.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Rosario Dawson is playing Dr. Celia Reyes, described as, "a medical doctor who has the ability to generate a protective bio-field around herself." This report also confirms a rumor »

Pirates On Track To Hit $100 Million In Opening Weekend?

26 May 2017 6:45 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It gets increasingly difficult to peg where a film’s performance will fall in an opening weekend. A few years ago, things seemed a whole lot simpler, but in a world where there’s a $100 million-plus opening film hitting every other week, it gets harder to gauge the tolerance an audience has for similar films. 2011 saw the release of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, and that film took in around $4.7 million in its opening Thursday. The movie went on to make around $90 million in its opening weekend, and over $1 billion worldwide in its theatrical run, securing its place in a rare category of ultra-successful films.

This past Thursday, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth film in the franchise, took in $5.5 million in Thursday ticket sales. When compared to the On Stranger Tides it seems to hint at a potential $100 million opening. And why not? »

Rosario Dawson and Henry Zaga in talks for X-Men: The New Mutants, film to be “a full-fledged horror”

25 May 2017 5:27 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following on from the confirmation that Anya Taylor-Joy and Maisie Williams are set to play Magik and Wolfsbane, THR is reporting that The Defenders star Rosario Dawson is in talks to join the cast of 20th Century Fox’s X-Men: The New Mutants.

The site reports that Dawson will portray Dr. Cecilia Reyes, “a medical doctor who has the ability to generate a protective bio-field around herself [and] assumes a mentor role for the group of fledgling heroes.”

It is also said that Henry Zaga (13 Reasons Why) will soon be announced as playing the character of Bobby da Costa, a.k.a. Sunspot, who previously appeared in X-Men: Days of Future Past, where he was portrayed by Adan Canto.

The article also goes on to debunk the previous rumours that X-Men: Apocalypse stars James McAvoy and Alexandra Shipp will reprise the roles of Professor X and Storm, stating that neither character are in the script. »

The New Mutants: Rosario Dawson In Talks To Join X-Men Spinoff?

25 May 2017 4:15 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Right now, the X-Men Cinematic Universe is at a bit of a crossroads. After concluding the secondary trilogy of their series with X-Men: Apocalypse last year, they were left with countless opportunities. No longer are they restricted to making standard superhero films. Last year’s Deadpool and this year’s Logan have proven that the only constraints they have are the constraints they put on themselves. So long as the films are strong, audiences have proven they are willing to pay their ticket to see the work they put out.

It seems to us that they’re continuing with this trend of the unexpected. Earlier today, we reported on the fact that one of the upcoming X-Men spinoffs, The New Mutants, would be a full-on horror, as opposed to the Ya film we were pitched months ago. However, that wasn’t the only interesting piece of news in that report. »

'Pirates 5' and 'Baywatch' Set Sail Over Memorial Day Weekend

25 May 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Memorial Day weekend brings two new wide releases to theaters in Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Paramount's R-rated comedy Baywatch, the latter of which got a head start on the weekend holding preview screenings last night and arriving nationwide today. Neither are necessarily expected to blow the doors off with Pirates looking to finish well behind the last three films, especially Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, which currently holds the Memorial Day opening weekend record of $139.8 million. Meanwhile there are a few questions as to just how high Baywatch will finish as Paramount really could use a win with this one as not one of their four releases this year has managed to hit $45 million domestically. At the top, while it isn't expected to top $100 million for the four day or even the $90.1 million Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides delivered »

The New Mutants Will Be ‘A Full-Fledged Horror Movie,’ Says Director Josh Boone

25 May 2017 9:05 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Color us surprised. Some time ago, The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone came on board the X-Men Universe film, The New Mutants. Admittedly, with X-Men: Apocalypse leaving off with our main crew so young, it almost felt pointless to have a Ya-type New Mutants spinoff. How would this movie actually help to differentiate itself from the movie we just saw?

Well, it turns out that The New Mutants will likely be a lot different than any of us had expected. Given the statements from Boone in the past regarding the story — as well as his dealing with angsty teen films like The Fault in Our Stars and Stuck in Love — we expected them to really buckle down on the Ya aspect. However, speaking with EW, the filmmaker revealed that they’d be going more in an unexpected direction:

“We are making a full-fledged horror movie set within the X-Men universe. »

Summer Box Office Revenue Down 10 Percent From 2016

24 May 2017 11:46 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

With all the millions and millions of dollars that Hollywood spends on films it is vital to the industry for them to preform well in theaters. Unfortunately this year Hollywood is off to a bad start. According to The Hollywood Reporter comScore is reporting an early box office decline of ten percent from last year and 20 percent compared to 2015 at this time. Lets look at the reasons why.

First of all lets get the one film that has held its own and lived up to its hype out of the way. Of course we are talking about Disney/Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 directed by James Gunn. During it's third weekend it grossed $35.1 million. This was close to beating out the very disappointing debut of 20th Century Fox's Alien: Covenant, which made a low $36 million domestically during it's first weekend. This follows up the big disappointment of Warner Bros. »

As ‘Alien: Covenant’ Disappoints, We Have to Ask: What Happens to Box Office When the Franchises Aren’t Enough?

21 May 2017 2:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This was expected to be a nice pre-Memorial Day box-office weekend: a solid franchise opener and two lower-budget films doing their job to create modest improvement over last year. That didn’t happen.

Instead, the top 10 fell ten percent from last year, “Alien: Covenant” did around $10 million below consensus expectations; the reboot of “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” also underperformed. Only the female-centered young adult entry, “Everything, Everything,” escaped relatively unscathed.

Help should be on the way. Next week sees two films with optimistic projections — the R-rated film version of “Baywatch” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” (#5 in that franchise). Last year saw two openers (“X-Men: Apocalypse” and “Alice Through the Looking Glass”) only total $92 million between them for the three-day weekend. That should be easy to best — but that’s what we thought this week. It might be time to worry.

Magneto and Mystique to Return in X-Men 7: Dark Phoenix

18 May 2017 5:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After months of rumors, it was finally confirmed that the next X-Men movie will be called Dark Phoenix, with this new movie rebooting the comic book arc that played out on the big screen in X2: X-Men United and X-Men: The Last Stand. This movie will be set in the 1990s, and Sophie Turner is said to be returning as Jean Grey, although her return has not been confirmed by the studio quite yet. While we're probably still far away from getting a full cast list, producer Hutch Parker recently hinted that two more iconic characters may be returning.

While promoting his upcoming sci-fi sequel Alien: Covenant on an MTV podcast, Michael Fassbender hinted that it is "likely" he will will be back as Magneto, although it seems nothing is set in stone yet, and he wouldn't elaborate more if he will be back for Dark Phoenix or The New Mutants. »

Michael Fassbender To Show Up In X-Men: Dark Phoenix?

17 May 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

What’s next for the franchise? How much longer can we expect folks from the old guard to stick around? That seems to be constant question X-Men fans have with their films. The initial group of actors that shepherded in the series — Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, and Ian McKellan — have likely all moved on form the series they started back in 2000, and now we’re all left wondering how much longer the second guard has to stick around.

On that list of actors are James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, and Jennifer Lawrence, the main stars of the secondary trilogy of the series. Jennifer Lawrence has seemed check out since X-Men: Apocalypse, so it’s no surprise that there’s little conversation surrounding her return. James McAvoy has always been game for continuing his portrayal of a younger Professor X. But what about Michael Fassbender as Magneto?

T.J. Miller shares details on his Boba Fett-obsessed Ready Player One character

17 May 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Actor T.J. Miller (DeadpoolSilicon Valley) has recently given some details on his character in the upcoming adaptation of Ernest Cline’s best-selling novel Ready Player One. Chatting with Fandango, the actor reveals that he is playing an original character for the film adaptation:

“I’m not in the book. Some plot points are different, but I’m the only new character. I play i-R0k and basically I am a funny, or at least mildly amusing, Boba Fett. In the Oasis, I am a better player than Aech or Daito or any of those guys. I am sort of unequivocally the best bounty hunter, but I work freelance. While all the Sixers work for Ioi and Sorrento [Ben Mendelsohn], he has to commission me and I get an incredibly high fee to either find people and kill them or make them starve in the game.”

Two Predators spotted in set photo from Shane Black’s reboot

As production continues on Shane Black’s reboot The Predator, a new set photo has surfaced on social media giving us our first look at the alien hunters from the new film. The image shows two Predators riding on a military vehicle, with one of them seemingly dressed in army fatigues. It’s not really clear if this will factor into the movie, or if some of the actors are just having some fun in between takes…

Michael Fassbender’s Magneto reportedly set for X-Men: Dark Phoenix, won’t appear in New Mutants

16 May 2017 5:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last year’s X-Men: Apocalypse marked the end of the initial three film contracts for First Class stars James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique) and Nicholas Hoult (Beast), and with 20th Century Fox readying the next slate of X-Men movies – including X-Men: Dark Phoenix and X-Men: The New Mutants – it remains to be seen which of the aforementioned actors will be returning to the franchise.

All four have suggested that they’re open to reprising their roles (with McAvoy also hinting that he’ll be back as Charles Xavier this summer), and now MTV News’ Joshua Horowitz has put out a tweet suggesting that Michael Fassbender will be back as Magneto in Dark Phoenix:

Want to know Fassbender's X-men future? Bet big on him appearing in Dark Phoenix but not New Mutants. Oh, I just saw Michael Fassbender Btw

Trailer For New X-Men Series The Gifted Is Here!

15 May 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Earlier this year, FX and Marvel worked together to bring the incredibly unique series Legion to FX. The series followed David Haller, who may very well be the most powerful mutant known to man. The show isn’t your typical superhero show, and if you were looking for something less abstract and artsy, you may have been disappointed. However, if you are one of those people, then this new mutant-centric series from Fox, The Gifted, may be more up your alley.

Last week, we got a first look at the upcoming network show (the pilot of which is directed by longtime X-Men helmer Bryan Singer), and today, they released a full trailer, and we have to say, it’s not half bad. Oftentimes with television shows — even with the best ones — we’re left with cheesy, silly-looking trailers that aren’t quite clear about stating their premise. Given the limited »

Bryan Singer’s Dysfunctional X-Men Family Takes Center Stage In New Images For The Gifted

15 May 2017 8:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though it’s never quite hit the dizzying box office heights of, say, Captain America: Civil War or even Suicide Squad, Fox’s X-Men universe is currently bursting at the seams with content, and it wasn’t too long ago that the studio nailed down release plans for three of its biggest 2018 tentpoles: Deadpool 2, New Mutants and X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

Those ambitious plans are about to spill over on to the small screen, too, via The Gifted, Bryan Singer and Matt Nix’s star-studded family drama that thrusts two ordinary parents (Amy Acker, Stephen Moyer) into extraordinary circumstances upon discovering that their two teenagers – namely Lauren (Gotham’s Natalie Alyn Lind) and Andy (Percy Hynes White) – boast mutant abilities.

What follows is a desperate fight for survival, as Acker and Moyer’s parents are forced to go on the run from shady government forces in order to protect their nearest and dearest. »
