Den of Thieves (2018)
A group of friends are bound for a horror-themed Halloween event at a local amusement park - a sprawling labyrinth of rides, games, and mazes that travels the country and happens to be in town. But for one visitor, the ghoulish carnival of nightmares is not

Freddie Mercury gave his final live performance as the front man of Queen in England in 1986 so it’s clear the Bohemian Rhapsody movie is drawing a lot of moviegoers who either were born after that or were not huge fans of the band.
The 20th Century Fox biopic registered the seventh biggest opening of the year in Oz, 10 per cent ahead of the debut of A Star is Born, which powered through its third weekend.
Meanwhile action-thriller Hunter Killer is another dud in Gerard Butler’s faltering career and Charming, a Us animated musical comedy, did not live up to its title.
Us audiences shunned Fahrenheit 11/9, Michael Moore’s documentary on how Donald Trump ascended to President, so it’s no surprise that Aussies stayed away as the Madman Entertainment release took $36,000 on 17 screens including advance screenings.

With some cinemas still to report, Bohemian Rhapsody is the box office champion on its first weekend after making a strong start to its UK run. The Queen rock biopic capitalised on its £1.62m opening night last Wednesday with a £6.4m weekend.
But Universal/Miramax/Blumhouse’s Halloween proved that business theory wrong last weekend with the second-best start ever for the month with $76.2M. And the horror sequel is showing again that there’s money to be made at the end of October, with a studio-reported second weekend of $32M second weekend, -58%, a great hold for a slasher, beating the second weekend of such horror movies as The Nun (-66%) and The Conjuring 2 (-63%) and not that far from Annabelle: Creation
The Gerard Butler and Gary Oldman-led thriller face off against “Halloween” as it moves into its second weekend, which should dominate through Oct. 31. “Hunter Killer” is projected for a $6-8 million opening behind a 38 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Comparisons aren’t easy for “Hunter Killer” considering that it’s going up against “Halloween.” But Gerard Butler’s “Geostorm,” which opened this time last year and skipped Thursday previews, ended up earning only $13.7 million in its opening weekend against a $120 million budget. Butler’s “Den of Thieves” opened in January of this year and took in $950,000 in previews leading up to a $15 million open.

After rising to the top of the table last week with a superb 0% drop on its opening weekend, A Star Is Born was at it again this weekend, dropping a negligible 6.5% with £2.9m to remain top.
That result takes it to £14.9m to date,
Consider its take on the U.S. president. The character, played by Caroline Goodall, is transparently modeled on Hillary Clinton. As a result, one watches her scenes utterly removed from the drama (I use the term loosely) and preoccupied, instead, with thoughts like, “Was this film really shot that long ago?” It was. Principal photography on “Hunter Killer
To celebrate Gerard’s return to action in submarine thriller Hunter Killer, in cinemas now, we deep dive into his action-packed past and round up some of his most gripping movies and moments. Whether he’s a Us Navy Commander attempting to save the Russian President in Hunter Killer, saving the world from climate destruction in Geostorm or leading a Spartan Army, Gerard Butler is a go-to action star for the ages.
As fun as it is ridiculous, Geostorm sees Gerard at his action best. When some climate-moderating devices seemingly malfunction and wreak havoc on Earth, it’s up to satellite designer and mechanic, Jake Lawson (Gerard Butler) to save the planet. No pressure Gerry. Although the film stretches the truth a little, it’s hard not to enjoy yourself in
When we last encountered Gerard Butler, in the semi-enjoyably derivative Den of Thieves, he was rerunning Al Pacino’s old Heat moves. Tonight, Matthew, cinema’s loudest Scotsman will be impersonating The Hunt for Red October-era Alec Baldwin.
Swerving any lawsuit that might have followed from calling his character, say, Jack Bryan, Butler’s maverick sub commander has been assigned the no less no-nonsense name of Joe Glass. Joe has an intense rep. “He never went to Annapolis!” a Pentagon functionary gasps. “I heard he once punched his Co,” gossips a passing seaman. Glass is first seen tracking elk with manly bow and arrow; you’re surprised the filmmakers didn’t go the whole alpha hog and have a shirtless Butler best the poor creatures in an arm wrestle.
