‘American Made’ Tops DVD, Blu-ray Charts

Universal Pictures’ “American Made” debuted at No. 1 on the Npd VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart the week ended Jan. 6.

The film, which stars Tom Cruise as a pilot working for the CIA who becomes a smuggler for Central American drug lords, earned $51.3 million at the domestic box office.

Warner’s “Dunkirk,” the top seller the previous week, slipped to No. 2 on both charts in its third week on shelves.

Rounding out the top five on both charts were Universal’s “Despicable Me 3” at No. 3, Fox’s “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” at No. 4, and Warner’s “The Lego Ninjago Movie” at No. 5.

Blu-ray Disc accounted for 61% of total unit sales for “American Made,” with 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray contributing 12% of the total.

“American Made” also debuted at No. 1 on the Media Play News rental chart for the week ended Jan. 7.

The Best Movies You May Have Missed in 2017

Rafael Motamayor lists the best movies that may have went under your radar this year…

2017 was a great year for movies, and you can’t convince me of the contrary! We had so many wonderful movies this year, that even thinking about the “best ones” has been nearly impossible. Even outside of the typical Oscar movies that end up on most critics’ lists (myself included), we’ve had a lot of good blockbusters compared to last year – and most if not all superhero movies this year have been great!

In the spirit of list-making season, I decided to write about some great movies that you probably missed this year. From Vince Vaughn crushing bones, to a horror-musical about mermaids, there’s something for everyone.

  • DailyDead
Even though Christmas is technically over, that doesn’t mean there still aren’t a few gifts for genre fans this week in the form of some killer Blu-ray and DVD releases. It’s a relatively quiet day for home entertainment debuts, but the films coming home on December 26th make up an entertaining assortment of viewing experiences to get you through this final week of 2017.

Rlj Entertainment is keeping busy on Tuesday with a pair of brutally awesome movies—Joe Lynch’s Mayhem and S.

Exclusive: We meet the eccentric and extraordinary Udo Kier for Brawl in Cell Block 99

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Stefan Pape

Having gained something of a cult following for his work, the prolific German actor Udo Kier has starred in well over 200 productions, and one of them is Brawl in Cell Block 99, where he stars alongside Vince Vaughn in this brutal, compelling piece of cinema. We had the pleasure of meeting Kier in a small clothes shop in Toronto, and what transpired was one of our favourite ever interviews.

Before I had even sat down he asked where I was from, so I told him.

“London? That is where I was discovered,” Kier said. “People said they were making a movie, and I had no knowledge about it, but I did the movie and they were very kind, they shot me from far away. I said to myself that I liked the attention, I could live from this, and so I became an actor. And now hundreds

The Den Of Geek top 20 films of 2017: 20 to 11

Den Of Geek Dec 23, 2017

We start our film of the year countdown, as we go from numbers 20 to 11...

At this time of year, traditions take hold for us. Waiting around the back of Asda for them to stick the ‘reduced’ labels on the bread. Marauding around coffee shops, trying to find one with a seat next to a power socket. And getting all of our writers to put together their favourite films of the year list.

We duly did this, and fed all of those votes into our Zx Spectrum 128k +2, which diligently weighted said votes, and came up with our annual top 20 countdown of films. Tragically, Geostorm didn’t trouble the list, despite Simon’s protests. However, over the next week or two, we’re going through the films that did. And here’s the first part of the countdown, from numbers 20 to 11…

‘Bone Tomahawk’ & ‘Brawn In Cell Block 99’ Director S. Craig Zahler To Helm ‘Hug Chickenpenny’

So far in his career, S. Craig Zahler has made movies with terrific titles that lived up to every vowel and consonant they contained. “Bone Tomahawk” delivered on the raw-nerved promise of its name, while “Brawl In Cell Block 99” was all that suggested and so much more (it’s awesome). Zahler’s next film is titled “Dragged Across Concrete,” and while I could look up the premise and tell you what it is, honestly, if you’re not thrilled by the title, maybe just stay away.

Jim Henson Company to Produce S. Craig Zahler’s ‘Hug Chickpenny’

Jim Henson Company to Produce S. Craig Zahler’s ‘Hug Chickpenny’
The Jim Henson Company is coming on board to produce S. Craig Zahler’s movie adaptation of the orphan story “Hug Chickpenny: The Panegyric of an Anomalous Child.”

The designers at Jim Henson’s Creature Shop will work with Zahler to create and build the animatronic puppet versions of the titular character, Hug. Zahler will also direct and produce along with Dallas Sonnier of Cinestate.

The story, described as a gothic Dickensian take on “The Elephant Man,” centers on a hopeful, physically asymmetrical boy who faces challenges in an orphanage and the weird and dangerous world outside. The white-haired baby inspires both ire and pity at the orphanage, until the day that an elderly eccentric adopts him as a pet.

Zahler is the writer-director of “Bone Tomahawk” and “Brawl in Cell Block 99.” The latter starred Vince Vaughn, Jennifer Carpenter, and Don Johnson and premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2017. His police thriller, “Dragged Across

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced today that 70 songs are currently in contention for nominations to the best original song category.

Directed by Ric Roman Waugh.

Starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Jon Bernthal, Lake Bell, Benjamin Bratt, Omari Hardwick, and Holt McCallany.

A newly released prisoner is forced to enter a gang war upon his return to the outside world in a bid to get his life back on track.

With HBO’s epic Game of Thrones reaching its much-anticipated climax in 2018, fans will be wondering what is going to become of the show’s stars once the battle for Westeros is finally finished. Many of the stars, Peter Dinklage and Emilia Clarke most notably, have attempted to make a step-up to the big-screen with mixed results but one star fans won’t have to worry about, judging by his performance in his latest film, Shot Caller, is Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

Iffam: Udo Kier to Receive Career Award

Iffam: Udo Kier to Receive Career Award
Veteran German actor, Udo Kier is set to receive a career achievement award this week at the International Film Festival & Awards. With more than 200 films to his credit, he deserves an award for longevity, if nothing else.

In his career early days, Kier was associated with numerous horror and genre films, ranging from the niche, to the mainstream and art house. Some had titles like “Spermula,” “Oi Erotomaneis,” and “Andy Warhol’s Frankenstein.” But the 1970s also saw him star in notorious Bdsm drama “Story of O,” and Dario Argento’s horror classic “Suspiria.”

Since then he has built a career that stretched from Europe to Hollywood, and encompassed TV (“Berlin: Alexanderplatz,” “Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated”) as well as film. Hollywood roles include “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective,” “Blade” and disaster film “Armageddon.” Big-budget Euro-Chinese indie, “Iron Sky: The Coming Race” recently brought him to China to shoot.

Kier will be in be in Macau with one of

2017 Movie Trailer Mashup Remembers the Year's Best Moments

Every year, one needs to take the good with the bad. That's as true with movies as it is with anything else, but 2017 has actually been a pretty impressive year.
