The first “Hotel Transylvania” opened with $42.5 million in North America in 2012 on its way to $358 million at the worldwide box office. In 2015, “Hotel Transylvania 2” launched with $48.4 million domestically and wound up with $473 million worldwide.

Amazon announced Thursday morning it’s offering its Amazon Prime members an exclusive early showing of “Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation” on June 30 at about 1,000 theaters across the country. “Hotel Transylvania 3” has a voice cast featuring Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, David Spade, Steve Buscemi, Keegan-Michael Key, Molly Shannon, Fran Drescher, Kathryn Hahn, Jim Gaffigan, and Mel Brooks.

Amazon Prime Members Get to See Hotel Transylvania 3 Two Weeks Early

Amazon and Sony Pictures have announced a joint promotion that will allow Amazon Prime members the chance to see Hotel Transylvania 3 two weeks earlier on June 30th ahead of the July 13th release date. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle also had a similar marketing strategy, allowing fans to see the movie 13 days ahead of the release date. It's a nice marketing strategy and the Hotel Transylvania 3 deal seems to be even better than Sony's last attempt at the promotion.

According to Variety, Amazon Prime members are able to order pre-sale tickets for a special one-time screening of Hotel Transylvania 3 on June 30th at 3:00 Pm local time at 1,000 screenings across North America. This special event almost guarantees that families won't have to drive super far away to get to see these screenings. Additionally, it obviously helps Sony by promoting the sequel while also showing a promising future for Amazon Prime

‘Broad City’ Stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson Tease a ‘Lot of Growth’ in Final Season

‘Broad City’ Stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson Tease a ‘Lot of Growth’ in Final Season
This story about “Broad City” first appeared in the Comedy/Drama/Actors issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine.

Comedy Central’s “Broad City” is so aspirational in its narrative about two twentysomething New Yorkers, it’s hard to think of the series as anything but a bunch of beginnings. Still, creators Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer are packing up their starter apartments, dismantling bongs, deleting Tinder accounts and heading into adulthood.

The upcoming fifth season will be their last, and it will not shy from emotion as it continues to deliver smart and absurdist comedy.

“I feel like we always try to write the funniest [story], but heading toward the ending is going to be pretty heavy, and everyone is going to know it when the season starts,” Glazer said. “There’s a lot of growth in the upcoming season.”

Friday The 13th: The Game Adds Brutal Woodchipper Kill

Being a lifelong lover of horror, I’ve naturally indulged in the genre outside of movies and literature. To be honest, the video game medium might be my favorite to explore this avenue just because of how immersive it is and how it transports you to a different world like no other.

But for the longest time, there weren’t many franchises that did it well outside of Resident Evil and Silent Hill, at least in my view. Fortunately, though, we’ve seen a turnaround with the likes of Dead Rising, Dead Space, The Evil Within, Until Dawn and, of course, Friday the 13th: The Game.

As you’re likely well aware, the interactive experience preserving the legacy of Jason Voorhees is the gift that keeps on giving, as it consistently offers devoted players new content. In fact, some additional Single Player Challenges just dropped, thereby allowing us the opportunity

Lean on Pete review – coming-of-age quest for a horse and his boy

British director Andrew Haigh’s modern American odyssey sees Charlie Plummer excel as a teen fleeing grim realities

A performance of remarkable depth, candour and vulnerability by rising star Charlie Plummer lies at the heart of this terrifically moving fourth feature film from British writer-director Andrew Haigh. Adapted from the 2010 novel by Willy Vlautin, Lean on Pete blends timeless American myths with pin-point portrayals of modern urban hardship, as its lonely teenage lead heads east from Oregon with a horse on its last hurrah. The travails are tough but there’s an unsentimental tenderness at the centre of Haigh’s movie – a melancholic counterpoint to the grim realities of life from which our young hero flees.

Plummer plays Charley Thompson, a lanky 15-year-old (he lies about his age) who has moved home umpteen times with his single father, Ray (Travis Fimmel). With dreams of playing for the high-school football team blighted by a nomadic lifestyle,

Trailer Watch: Fact and Fiction Blur in Andrea Riseborough-Starrer “Nancy”

“Nancy”

Parents receive a phone call they’ve been waiting three decades for in a new trailer for Christina Choe’s “Nancy.” After appearing on the news, they hear from a woman claiming to be their child. “I think that I might be your daughter Brooke,” Nancy (Andrea Riseborough) tells them when she calls from another state. “It’s not a joke. My name’s Nancy. I think my mother may have kidnapped me 30 years ago. It’d explain a lot of things in my life.”

It’s unclear whether Nancy is Brooke or impersonating her — or if she herself knows the difference. The eerie spot suggests that Nancy may be unstable, and she is definitely full of secrets. “There are things that you don’t know — that I haven’t told you,” we see her telling someone.

Brooke’s parents (Steve Buscemi and J. Smith-Cameron) wisely hire a private
