Box Office: ‘Night School’ Opens to $1.35 Million on Thursday Night
Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish are proving to be an irresistible combination at the box office. The comic stars joined forces for “Night School,” a Universal Pictures comedy that picked up $1.35 million in previews on Thursday night.

Night School” is expected to top the box office charts this weekend, eyeing a debut between $27 million and $35 million. It has some formidable competition, however. “Smallfoot,” the animated Warner Bros. release about an adorable Yeti, picked up $850,000 in Thursday previews. The family film is expected to generate around $25 million when it bows on over 4,000 screens. “Night School” has fewer venues — it will be in 2,900 theaters.

Night School” reunites Haddish with “Girls Trip” director Malcolm D. Lee and producer Will Packer. She portrays a teacher who helps Hart earn his GED. The movie cost $29 million to produce.

“Smallfoot” has a higher budget of $80 million. The film boasts an impressive voice cast that includes Channing Tatum,

Box Office: Can Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish’s ‘Night School’ Best ‘Smallfoot’?
Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish are hoping that big laughs equal big bucks when “Night School” opens this weekend. Before the comedic duo can claim box office victory, however, they’ll have to fend off one adorable Yeti.

Universal’s “Night School” is eyeing a debut between $27 million and $35 million from 2,900 theaters. The film reunites Haddish with “Girls Trip” director Malcolm D. Lee and producer Will Packer. The PG-13 comedy finds Haddish playing an unorthodox teacher helping Hart get his Ged. If estimates hold, the launch of “Night School” looks to be on par with “Girls Trip’s” $30 million start. That raunchy comedy became a sleeper hit, grossing over $140 million worldwide off its $19 million budget. “Night School” has a slightly higher price tag at $29 million.

Hart has long been a box office draw, but “Night School” will test the star power of Haddish in her first lead role since breaking

Smallfoot Review: A Hilarious Lesson in Critical Thinking

  • MovieWeb
Smallfoot is an ingenious lesson in critical thinking, adroitly delivered via CGI animation. I certainly did not expect a children's film about a yeti to be so intellectually stimulating. Every kid who sees Smallfoot will leave the theater a bit smarter, and perhaps more curious about their environment. It's also hilarious, laugh out loud funny in parts. The humor is equally as clever as the plot. The only drawback is the music. The songs are perfunctory, distracting from Smallfoot's brilliance.

Smallfoot takes place high atop the Himalayas. On a cloud shrouded mountain, a village of yetis live in peace and harmony. Their entire society strictly adheres to rules written on stones by their ancestors. Channing Tatum voices Migo, who is apprenticing to replace his father (Danny DeVito) as the village gong ringer. A failed practice run at the gong hurls Migo down the mountain. The accident leads Migo to an

‘Smallfoot’ Film Review: Fun Ideas Get Buried Under Avalanche of Mediocrity

‘Smallfoot’ Film Review: Fun Ideas Get Buried Under Avalanche of Mediocrity
Producers John Requa and Glenn Ficarra have generally kept a wide berth between their kid-friendly projects and their more adult material. The best parts of “Smallfoot” see them finding a middle ground, espousing plot points and messaging that you don’t usually find in family fare.

Lurking within this animated tale of yetis and humans are such forward-thinking notions as, “Question everything, including religion,” “Governments use public safety as an excuse for misleading the populace when they really just want to control people,” and “Tribalism benefits people in power more than the communities they claim to want to protect.”

Heady stuff for a mainstream cartoon, but unfortunately “Smallfoot” can’t bear the weight of its big ideas, saddled as it is with fairly mediocre animation, mostly forgettable songs and a resolutely by-the-numbers screenplay by director Karey Kirkpatrick (“Over the Hedge”) and Clare Sera, adapting Sergio Pablos’ book “Yeti Tracks.”

At this point, we move to Channing Tatum's character, who's sharing the tale

Exclusive Interview: Wonder Woman composer Rupert Gregson-Williams talks superhero sounds

What’s the secret to capturing the musical essence of the iconic Wonder Woman? Sean Wilson speaks to the new movie’s composer, Rupert Gregson-Williams, to find out…

Few comic book movies come freighted with as much as expectation as Wonder Woman. For one, it’s being positioned as the saviour of the DC Movie Universe, which until now has flagged with the bloated likes of Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad. It’s the first superhero movie fronted by a female character (played by Gal Gadot) since 2005’s Elektra and the first ever to be directed by a woman (Monster filmmaker Patty Jenkins).

Most importantly, it’s a movie that has to honour one of the most celebrated icons in the DC canon, performing a tricky balancing act between the humour of the 1970s Lynda Carter TV series and the sort of grandiose dramatic spectacle demanded by a multiplex audience.

Tim Blake Nelson headlining The True Don Quixote

Variety is reporting that production has got underway on The True Don Quixote, a modern-day version of Miguel de Carvantes classic novel, with Chris Poche (Over the Hedge) directing a cast that includes Tim Blake Nelson (Fantastic Four) as Don Quixote and Jacob Batalon (Spider-Man: Homecoming) as Sancho Panza.

According to the site, the story “is centered on a man who’s safe and comfortable and bored to death with his life. In his state of despair, the stories of passion and pain change his mind until he awakens insane, anointing himself as Don Quixote to find adventure, fame and glory that will make his life worthwhile — while never leaving his one-mile square neighborhood.”

“[Don Quixote] is this hilarious, intimate little buddy comedy about a guy who essentially just goes out and attacks his neighborhood because he goes insane from boredom and propaganda, which feels very timely,” said Poche. “And who better

How ‘The Boss Baby’ Became Top Dog at the Box Office

Release dates are sometimes more interesting than their movies.

The simple answer for how a movie like The Boss Baby opens at number one is that it’s a major studio animated feature debuting in late March. Specific to this movie, however, there are certain special circumstances, like Beauty and the Beast finally dropping enough to give something else a shot and Ghost in the Shell being a flop, possibly due to its whitewashing casting controversy and possibly just due to its just not being very good.

March is a tricky month for movie releases. With Easter having an unfixed date falling either in March or April, there’s sometimes a holiday weekend, albeit not one typically known for moviegoing. Also, much of America’s children have a spring break, yet there’s no uniformity from county to county within any given state let alone across the country (many states and school districts also wait until April

William Shatner joins My Little Pony

Rob Leane Feb 6, 2017

Further revealing his inner Brony, the legendary William Shatner has signed up for a My Little Pony role...

"Is it true you might do voice work for [My Little Pony season 7]? I'm actually a big fan of you", a Twitter user named BeaatModeBrony5 politely asked William Shatner a few days ago.

The Star Trek legend's response was simple: "Already did."

"I'm a brony and friendship is magic", Shatner wrote in an earlier Tweet, which instigated the rumour that he's jumping on board the Hasbro series. Now, it seems to be confirmed.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is the latest incarnation of the show. Its seventh season is expected early this year. There's also My Little Pony: The Movie, which is coming in October.

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Pit (1981)

What appears on the page is not always what appears on the screen. The screenwriter has most times defined what he/she hopes to see translated, but that’s not always the case (and when it isn’t, it’s usually for the worse). However, sometimes a film will morph from the pen to the multiplex in a post-faithful state that exceeds expectations. One such film is The Pit (1981), a Canadian made, Us lensed flick that started out as a psychological breakdown of a delusional little boy, and ended up in B Movie Heaven, where it is personally fanned and fed grapes by Ed Wood and William Castle on a daily basis. There’s no other film quite like it.

The Pit, Aka Teddy, was thrust upon an unsuspecting public October 23rd by New World Pictures in the States. Produced by Amulet Pictures (the fine folks who later begat Spring Fever

'Angry Birds' #1 Domestically, 'Captain America' Tops $1 Billion and It's 'Apocalypse' Overseas
Sony's The Angry Birds Movie took the number one spot at the domestic box office this weekend, pushing two-time champion, Captain America: Civil War, to second place as it begins its third week in release. Civil War's weekend, however, wasn't only about the domestic box office as it has now become the first 2016 release to cross $1 billion worldwide, doing so in just 24 days of global release. The weekend's two other new wide releases, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and The Nice Guys, finished in third and fourth position respectively. Also, X-Men: Apocalypse launched overseas one week ahead of its domestic debut and hauled in over $100 million. Based on Rovio's mobile game application, Angry Birds finished just ahead of weekend tracking with an estimated $39 million. The best comparison from a performance standpoint is 2006's Over the Hedge, which also opened the week before Memorial Day weekend and scored a $38.4 million opening. That film,
