‘Dark Phoenix’ To Rise Above ‘Secret Life Of Pets 2’ In $170M+ Global Debut

  • Deadline
Illumination/Universal’s The Secret Life of Pets 2 might win over U.S./Canada this weekend with a projected $60M, but Disney/Fox’s Dark Phoenix is expected to take over the world with at least a $170M global day-and-date launch.

In what is the last Fox/Marvel X-Men movie before Disney’s McU likely reboots the mutant hero franchise, Dark Phoenix will touch down in all major territories, save Japan and Indonesia, with China as the swing country. In the Middle Kingdom, Dark Phoenix will have the added plus of the Dragon Boat holiday, but there’s local competition from Chasing the Dragon II and My Best Summer. Current tracking for Dark Phoenix in China is $50M-$60M, repping around 50% of the pic’s $120M overseas start.

There’s a chance Dark Phoenix could rise to $135M abroad. The overseas opening range is down from the previous 2016 movie X-Men: Apocalypse

Will Smith Approves of Fan-Made Trailer for a ‘Dramatic’ Version of ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’
A month ago, filmmaker Morgan Cooper reimagined NBC’s hit 1990s sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” as a dramatic series, creating a concept trailer that quickly went viral. With close to 6 million views on YouTube alone, the star of the original series, Will Smith, eventually saw the trailer, and loved it so much that he invited Cooper for a videotaped interview during which he not only expressed his appreciation for the effort, but also analyzed its potential.

“Morgan did a ridiculous trailer for ‘Bel-Air’,” Smith said in the video titled “How I Really Feel About That Bel-air Trailer,” which he published on his popular YouTube channel on Friday. “The dramatic version of these ideas means that you can use existing storylines, but it’s not going to seem like you are redoing an episode because the storyline’s going to be brand-new from a dramatic perspective.”

“It’s true. You’re really good at it,” Hathaway acknowledged. “My favorite is when you called me an animatronic c— tease.”

Wilson nodded, “Yeah. On that day, you really looked like her.”

Patrick Stewart Confirms Exactly When His New Star Trek Show Is Set

Patrick Stewart’s new Star Trek series is due to go before the cameras in just a couple of months, but story details are still being kept tightly under wraps.

I love Chris Pratt, but I really love Andy Dwyer, so when I found out Pratt covered The Lego Movie's "Everything Is Awesome" as his Parks and Recreation character, I pressed play faster than you can say "Burt Macklin." The fun performance came when the actor appeared on The Graham Norton Show last week to promote The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part alongside his costar Elizabeth Banks.

At one point, Graham Norton brought up the movie's catchy theme song, "Everything Is Awesome," noting that Pratt's been known to play a cover version. Pratt laughed and mentioned his fan-favorite Parks and Rec character, Andy Dwyer, saying, "He was the frontman of a terrible band called Mouse Rat, and they basically just did really terrible frat-boy rock music, so I can add that twist to 'Everything Is Awesome.'"
