‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer,’ ‘Wonderstruck,’ and ‘Jane’ Lead Weak Specialty Box Office

10 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

At this point during the prime fall awards season (“Moonlight” opened one year ago), the arthouse box office should be humming along. It’s not. This weekend, Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” (A24) and the documentary “Jane” (National Geographic/Abramorama) showed credible initial results, while the anticipated opening of Todd Haynes’ “Wonderstruck” (Roadside Attractions) fell shy of expectations.

These three films are catching attention ahead of a glut of upcoming biopics, which can be hit or miss. While “Victoria & Abdul” (Focus) continues to be the biggest success of the season so far, and “Loving Vincent” (Good Deed) is an arthouse sleeper, middling performer “Battle of the Sexes” (Fox Searchlight) failed to reach hoped-for heights. The next round comes in the face of widespread audience disinterest for such true stories as “Goodbye Christopher Robin” (Fox Searchlight), “Marshall” (Open Road) and “Professor Marston and the Wonder Woman” (Annapurna).

Billie Jean King Praises Weinstein Accusers, 'That's Progress'

21 hours ago | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

[[tmz:video id="0_cf4f8bc8"]] Billie Jean King says society is making progress in the battle against sexism, and she's pointing to the Harvey Weinstein scandal -- and the women speaking out -- as her proof. King is a trailblazer in every sense of the word, spending her entire career not just winning on the court, but winning in society as an advocate for women's rights (she founded the Wta tour, btw). When we got her out at Lax and »

“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”: October Oscar predictions

20 October 2017 10:55 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Hot on the heels of the precursor season launching yesterday, I have a brand new set of Academy Award predictions to share with you all. There are some definite changes to be seen, with the most noteworthy being that Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is really making a play towards the top of a lot of categories. Martin McDonagh’s film is quietly starting to seem like potentially the frontrunner in Best Picture. That’s just the buzz around town right now, buoyed by how amazing the movie actually is. How that’s handled is just one item on the docket today. Questions will soon be answered, and that’s pretty damn exciting folks. Another thing you’ll likely notice is that I’ve moved The Post and Phantom Thread from predictions for now. They’re just outside of the nominated fields, at least until they either screen, confirm a 2017 release date, »

Nascent Middleburg Film Festival Banks on Rural Charm, Awards Hopefuls

19 October 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The fifth annual Middleburg Film Festival will run from Oct. 19-22 in the picturesque community of Middleburg, Va. Festival directors Sheila Johnson and Susan Koch boast of their setting, an hour from Washington, D.C., and 30 minutes from Dulles Intl. Airport, as well as a starry slate of Oscar contenders and provocative indie gems.

“We’re situated in horse and wine country, which makes for a very intimate setting,” says Johnson, who founded the festival in 2012. Since when it has grown considerably.

“We’re attracting roughly 4,000 visitors, and we’re a completely walkable festival,” Koch says. “We’ll be screening 25 films at various venues all across town, and even if we don’t have a traditional theater in Middleburg, that hasn’t stopped us from putting on a terrific event.  Everything from the town’s community center to the library to the performing arts school is retrofitted with Dcp technology for the screenings.

French Aids drama Bpm shows Hollywood how to capture gay history

18 October 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Oscar-buzzed film is refreshingly queer, filled with an authenticity that sanitised disappointments such as Dallas Buyers Club and Stonewall still fail to include

It has been a landmark year for Lgbt cinema. From Moonlight’s Oscar victory to the triumphant Sundance premieres of gay romances God’s Own Country and Call Me By Your Name; from the transgender breakthrough of Chile’s A Fantastic Woman to the mainstream politicking of Battle of the Sexes, we’re seeing a wider-than-ever array of approaches to sexuality on film, no longer confined to the arthouse fringe.

‘Marshall’ Origin Myth Leads Weak Biopics at Specialty Box Office

15 October 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Noah Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected),” which debuted in competition in Cannes and scored fresh acclaim at the New York Film Festival, is a day-and-date Netflix release, so no numbers are reported. It’s likely that the family comedy starring Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller and Dustin Hoffman, who all did substantial press, played well enough at high-end theaters in New York and L.A. to take a bite out of its competitors.

Despite the lack of reported numbers, a glance at the pre-buy seating chart for the Landmark theater in West Los Angeles for Sunday shows in a theater with over 100 seats that are close to sellouts hours ahead of time suggests a weekend total that might be roughly $20,000 (roughly).That’s impressive for a film that any Netflix subscriber can see at home.

Other openers continued the string of movies about real people that are dominating the specialized release schedule. »

Brief Takes: Blade Runners, Tennis Stars, Feisty Queens, Fish Men

14 October 2017 9:17 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

In an effort to break out of my silence -- October is my favorite month so why has it been so hard? -- micro thoughts on 5 Oscar hopefuls I meant to review but didn't. Whoops. Please to discuss in the comments.

Battle of the Sexes (Jonathan Dayton & Valerie Faris)

The story of Billie Jean King's (Emma Stone) famous 1973 match with Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) and her efforts to make women's tennis viable in a sexist industry

Capsule: A timely well-crafted look back to the beginnings of a gender war that's depressingly still raging and a soupçon of queer romance to give it unique personality. Dayton & Faris's light touch is the right choice for this briskly-paced but delicately felt recreation of a pivotal American moment. Emma Stone is perfection as the heroic tight shouldered athlete at the center. Just discussed on the podcast. B+

Oscar Chances: This one could go either way. »

Hulu releases music video for Sarah Silverman's I Love You, America

13 October 2017 1:38 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

While I believe Sarah Silverman can be pretty hit-or-miss, I do genuinely like her in things. She was great in Wreck-it Ralph, and did a pretty good job in the upcoming Battle Of The Sexes. I also like her stand-up, which is why I'm looking forward to her upcoming Hulu series I Love You, America. Here's the official synopsis: From inciting treason to telling poop jokes, Sarah Silverman has created her fair... Read More »

Trend to Try: The Best Head-to-Toe Navy Looks Under $100

12 October 2017 10:05 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Navy for fall? Groundbreaking (we know). But we’re not just talking about the standard, sedate navy sweater or pants. The navy that’s trending this season is not only worn head-to-toe, but in interesting silhouettes and fabrics – like satin, velvet, lace and silk – and it’s fun, flirty, sophisticated and modern. Celebrities have been pushing boundaries with the typically neutral hue, wearing off-the-shoulder sparkly navy fringe like Sarah Jessica Parker, sheer ruffles with voluminous sleeves and pants like Kelly Rowland and head-to-toe velvet corduroy like Emma Stone. We’ve found the best under-$100 navy pieces to try out for your next night out, »

10 October 2017 1:45 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Some love never dies—or so we hope. Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone were the couple that everyone was rooting for. The two met during the filming of The Amazing Spider-Man, where Andrew played a young Peter Parker and Emma was his love interest Gwen Stacy. They proceeded to date and gave us all relationship goals for four amazing, love-filled years until their amicable split in 2015. Recently, Andrew has been out promoting his latest film Breathe while Emma has been supporting her new project Battle of the Sexes.

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. »

Anyone who’s anyone in Hollywood has a side hustle in the beauty and fashion world. Whether they collaborate on a clothing line or serve as the face of a high-end brand, the amount of stars who have dual professions is impossible to tally up. So it comes as no surprise that the biggest names in movies and music, Emma Stone and Adam Levine respectively, just signed their own a deal with the two biggest fashion houses in Paris.
