“The Disaster Artist”: September Oscar predictions

4 hours ago | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

It’s slowly turning into the fall, weather wise. At the same time, the films are beginning to become more and more prestige laden. The Academy Awards are still a ways off, but predictions need to continually evolve, now that we’re more than halfway through the festival season. As such, a laser focus on the awards season is what’s required now. Only a select few Oscar hopefuls have yet to screen for any pundits, and with that, there aren’t a lot of X factors in the race. You’ll shortly see what I think it all will turn out as for now, but this is just a drop in the bucket. The real moves will be made over the coming weeks. Stay tuned there. First, a bit of housekeeping to take care of. We’ve had Lean on Pete and You Were Never Really Here turn into 2018 releases, »

'Kingsman' and 'LEGO Ninjago' Ready to Add to September's Record Pace

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

September 2017 is currently pacing 15.6% ahead of 2016 with a calendar gross of $467.3 million, putting the month on a record pace, $48 million ahead of where 2015 was at the same time period before delivering $626.4 million, the largest September calendar gross ever. Almost half of September's total at this point is thanks to Warner Bros. and New Line's It, which is looking to do strong numbers again this weekend, but will fall from its #1 perch after two straight weeks on top. Debuting in wide release this weekend is Fox's Kingsman: The Golden Circle and it should have enough juice to take the weekend top spot while Warner Animation Group's The LEGO Ninjago Movie is looking to finish in the runner-up position. Entertainment Studios' is going social with the R-rated horror Friend Request debuting in just over 2,500 theaters and likely to finish in the top five (albeit with minimal returns) while Roadside Attractions is »

Battle of the Sexes movie review: totally ace

21 September 2017 8:54 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… An essential history lesson with a smart smack of relevance for today (because feminism always has to be relitigated). It’s also warm, funny, and hugely entertaining. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m desperate for movies about women

I’m “biast” (con): not a sports fan at all

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

That saying about those not remembering the past being condemned to repeat it? Of course it’s true… but sometimes it’s not an accident that the past gets forgotten. Sometimes the squashing of history — and the continuation of history into the present — is deliberate. Feminists know this: Women are constantly having to reinvent feminism, refight the same battles, because they don’t stay won. A brief moment of small triumph very quickly gets drowned out by major cultural pushback; women may savor victory only long enough »

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

20 September 2017 5:44 PM, PDT | 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 »

Why the Battle of the Sexes Was a Big Deal in More Ways Than One

20 September 2017 12:40 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

File the Battle of the Sexes backstory under "you can't make this sh*t up." Starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell, the movie, which comes out Sept. 22, tells the true story of the 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs - a national spectacle dubbed "the Battle of the Sexes" - that took place 44 years ago this month. As a feminist and a tennis player who was raised by a feminist tennis player, I have always been fascinated with this piece of history, and the wild story definitely deserves to be made into a movie. The match was significant not only because - spoiler alert - King demolished Riggs as 90 million people watched on TV, but it also transformed women's tennis and women's sports in general.

Hollywood Contenders – Looking at Best Actress hopefuls

20 September 2017 9:47 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

You know what time it is. As you ladies and gentlemen are well aware of from the last year or so as well as my handful of articles again during this year, it’s one thing to read early Academy Award predictions at this point in the year in order to see what folks like myself think will happen six or so months from now, but it’s a whole other thing entirely to actually know something about what will be in contention. To help out in that regard, I’m once again running down some of the major contenders in each Oscar category in order to prep you all for the season to come. Basically, the format will have me saying a few words about what/who I feel are the top tier contenders right now in said categories, along with a longer list afterwards of many of the »
