Major Russian cinema chains Formula Kino and Cinema Park, owned by tycoon Alexander Mamut, have canceled their plans to screen American Made amid a conflict with Universal over a local online ticket service that is also owned by Mamut.
A spokesman for Rambler & Co, another company owned by Mamut, confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that the movie, which opened this past weekend at other theaters across Russia, was pulled from the two chains.
He wouldn't elaborate on the reasons, but local business daily Vedomosti reported that the Russian office of Universal Pictures International (Upi), which distributes the »

Goodbye Christopher Robin, 2017.
Directed by Simon Curtis.
Realistically, the most gracious compliment to be given to Goodbye Christopher Robin is that it isn’t awful, although there’s no excuse for all of its fragmented, sometimes intersecting narrative points to miss the mark this badly. Imagine trying to hurl a baseball at a beehive full of honey, only for the pitch to wildly miss and smash Eeyore in the face, and you have the script for this film. What’s most frustrating is that the structure is solidly crafted to do the creation of Winnie the Pooh and company justice, rarely attaining »

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.

The film was positioned well in two ways. Mid-October is often a prime pre-Halloween date for horror entries. Lionsgate claimed the weekend before October 31 for “Jigsaw, »

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. »
“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 »

Cambodia has halted the theatrical release of “Kingsman: The Golden Circle.” The South East Asian nation argues that the film portrays it in a negative light.
The film was originally scheduled to have been released on Sept. 21. But that was delayed as distributor Westec Media attempted to deal with the censor’s concerns by cutting a line which had given offence.
The film allegedly carries the line: “”Cambodian land as the place where the terrorists stay and make trouble for the world.” The espionage comedy film includes scenes where spies seek out a drug lord’s hideout.
“After we reviewed the film we found some problems,” Bok Borak, from the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts told Cambodian English-language daily Phnom Penh Post.
“I was very disappointed when I first heard that ‘Kingsman 2’s approval by our local censorship board was put on hold. We quickly informed Fox to cut out scenes and dialogues which mentioned »

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. »

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but there’s no fire — delightful or otherwise — inside “The Snowman,” a suitably frosty but flaccid first attempt at Hollywoodizing the oeuvre of popular Norwegian noir merchant Jo Nesbø. On paper, this twisty, grisly serial-killer chiller seemed an optimum match of talent to material, with Swedish genre stylist Tomas Alfredson returning to his Scandi roots after a super-smart English-lingo debut in “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” — taking the reins from Martin Scorsese, no less, who still offers his classy imprimatur as an executive producer.
You’d be hard pressed to trace either man’s touch, however, in this choppy, blizzard-brained adaptation of Nesbø’s 2007 bestseller, for which the best that can be said is that it reworks the text just enough to keep the author’s die-hard fans on their frost-bitten toes. Anyone else, however, is likely to be bewildered by a haphazard structure, a surfeit of dill-pickled red herrings and the »

With American Made now playing in theaters around the world, I landed an exclusive interview with director Doug Liman last week. During the wide-ranging conversation, he talked about making the film with Tom Cruise, how they lived together in the same house while filming and even shared doing the chores, what it was like making a film about someone who did such crazy things, what he learned from test screenings, and a lot more. In addition, Liman talked about the status of Edge of Tomorrow 2 and how the studio's not trying to force a sequel, as well … »

It seems that Blade Runner 2049 couldn't continue the fall hot streak at the box office. Last month, it seemed that the slumping summer months were cured by It's record breaking opening weekend, and while that has gone on to become the highest-grossing horror movie of all time, and one of this year's highest-grossing movies, it seemed to be just a temporary solution to the industry's box office woes. Last weekend, the highly-anticipated Blade Runner 2049 underperformed and opened with just $32.7 million, just one fifth of its $150 million budget, signalling that studios may be in for a tough month until Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters in November. Four new movies hit theaters this weekend, and while we're projecting that Blade Runner 2049 will come out on top with a repeat win, the race will likely be a lot closer than it should have been.
Blade Runner 2049 goes up against four new movies this weekend, »
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.

Thirty-five years after the Ridley Scott sci-fi original (which was not an initial box office success but grew into a cult favorite), the long-aborning sequel “Blade Runner: 2049” had much to recommend it: rave reviews, Denis Villeneuve directing his follow-up to sci-fi Oscar-winner “Arrival”; Ryan Gosling’s first wide release since “La La Land”; a committed multi-generational smart sci-fi fan base.
So why did the movie fall short of expectations? It was expected to score at least $40 million domestically against a $155-185-million budget: $31 million marks a serious under-performer and suggests that to the extent that Villeneuve channeled the original, he may have delivered an artistic achievement that is not mainstream.
With most of the world outside Asia already playing the film, the initial foreign $81 million take will not yield $300-million worldwide — which is close to what the movie cost to make and market (shared by Alcon Entertainment and financier »
