'A Quiet Place' Back at #1, While 'Super Troopers 2' Demolishes Expectations

'A Quiet Place' Back at #1, While 'Super Troopers 2' Demolishes Expectations
Early on it looked as if it might be a tight race for the weekend #1, and while the margin was slim, in the end A Quiet Place settled into the spot, topping last weekend's champion Rampage. Stx's I Feel Pretty settled into third over its debut weekend, delivering results a shade over expectations, narrowly topping the outstanding performance from Fox Searchlight's Super Troopers 2, which more than doubled expectations. With an estimated $22 million, Paramount's A Quiet Place topped the weekend as its domestic cume climbs to an outstanding $132.4 million after just 17 days in release. For comparison, Split and The Conjuring finished with $138.2 million and $137.4 million respectively over the course of their entire domestic runs. In fact, A Quiet Place is now Paramount's highest grossing domestic release since 2016's Star Trek Beyond ($158.8m) as it topped the $130.1 million brought in by Transformers: The Last Knight last year.

James Cameron Hopes for ‘Avengers’ Fatigue: ‘There Are Other Stories To Tell’ In Sci-Fi

James Cameron Hopes for ‘Avengers’ Fatigue: ‘There Are Other Stories To Tell’ In Sci-Fi
As it appears that this chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is coming to an end with “Avengers: Infinity War,” sci-fi aficionado James Cameron says that’s probably for the best.

The man behind legendary sci-fi franchises such as “Terminator” and “Avatar” told reporters on Saturday that he’s a fan of the “Avengers” movies, but he fears that they have dominated too much of the genre as of late.

“I’m hoping we’ll start getting ‘Avenger’ fatigue here pretty soon,” Cameron said. “Not that I don’t love the movies. It’s just, come on guys, there are other stories to tell besides hyper-gonadal males without families doing death-defying things for two hours and wrecking cities in the process. It’s like, oy!”

Cameron has been thinking a lot lately about the history and state of sci-fi as the host and executive producer of “AMC Visionaries: James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction.

Hans Zimmer to Receive Steiner Award at Hollywood in Vienna Gala
Composer Hans Zimmer will receive the 2018 Max Steiner Award at the annual Hollywood in Vienna concert gala. The event is scheduled for Oct. 19 at the Konzerthaus in the Austrian capital, Hollywood in Vienna founder and CEO Sandra Tomek announced.

‘In a Relationship’ Review: Emma Roberts and Michael Angarano Tell a Painfully Relatable Story of Modern Love — Tribeca

You’ve probably seen “In a Relationship” before — hell, if you’re over 25, you’ve probably lived it. But what Sam Boyd’s tender and winning debut feature lacks in originality and ambition, it makes up for in honesty and charm.

Yet another of those movies about beautiful millennials having sex with each other while trying to sort out How We Love Now, Boyd’s film retreads familiar territory that people like Drake Doremus and the Duplass brothers might seem to have already farmed dry. A white boy with bad hair. A button-nosed girl with bad taste. A lot of navel-gazing commentary about hook-up culture, the rules of the game, and how they’ve changed for a generation in which constant connection hasn’t brought everybody closer. Some funny references. Too many synths. Even the best of these stories — even the ones that might reflect your own experience a tiny

2019 Oscars: Best Supporting Actor Predictions

2019 Oscars: Best Supporting Actor Predictions
At Sundance 2018, Forest Whitaker and Jonah Hill both scored in Gus Van Sant’s “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot.” But at this point, many are ready to hand the Oscar to “Black Panther” star Michael B. Jordan, given Killmonger’s status as the most layered Marvel villain thus far.

While last year brought the battle of the mothers at the Oscars, a series of fathers could compete in 2019. Matthew McConaughey plays the father of the youngest FBI informant ever in “White Boy Rick.” Steve Carell is the beleaguered dad of a young drug addict (Timothée Chalamet) in “Beautiful Boy.” In “Boy Erased,” Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman are the Baptist parents of an outed gay teen (Lucas Hedges) who battles his conversion therapist (writer-director Joel Edgerton).

It will be the battle of the Scorsese vets in “The Irishman,” as Harvey Keitel, Joe Pesci and Al Pacino

‘The Party’s Just Beginning’ Review: Karen Gillan’s Homegrown Drama Is a Directorial Debut That Promises Great Things — Tribeca

‘The Party’s Just Beginning’ Review: Karen Gillan’s Homegrown Drama Is a Directorial Debut That Promises Great Things — Tribeca
The opposite of a vanity project, actress Karen Gillan’s dramatic feature directorial debut “The Party’s Just Beginning” gives the former “Doctor Who” and current McU star the space to dig into a meaty role while also showing off her serious filmmaking chops. Set in Gillan’s own hometown of Inverness, the film uses the tragic history of the Scottish Highlands (which has the highest suicide rate in the U.K.) to spin out an intimate coming of age tale, bolstered by Gillan’s dark sense of humor and a firm understanding of how to play with narrative conventions. She’s got real style, and it shows in every minute of this particular party.

Fittingly enough, “The Party’s Just Beginning” opens at a rollicking pub, where a wasted Liusaidh (Gillan) is crooning out bad karaoke — half lyrics, half garbled manifesto. Candy pink subtitles stream across the screen, all

Of the films we have already seen, Chadwick Boseman buffed his stardom in the lead role in Marvel blockbuster “Black Panther,” while Joaquin Phoenix took home Best Actor at Cannes as a brutal killer trying to save a young girl from the sex trade in “You Were Never Really Here.”

The Big ‘Westworld’ Mysteries to Obsess over in Season 2

Do you have a set of Westworld theories? I bet you do. Since the series debuted, audiences have set out dissecting every line of dialogue and stayed eagle-eyed for every in-camera clue.

We're rapt in the story that's unfolding and the history that precedes it, and the lines between the two have never been exactly clear in the his show. Westworld has built a world in which the past and …
